So! Who is willing to watch the GOP National Convention for next 4 nights?

After their last disaster in 2012, this one should be a real snoozer? I am sure I will catch bits and pieces of it on the radio?

1. I think I need to wash my hair.

Or mow the lawn . . . or whatever.

2. I will watch some--unless it turns out to be too boring. It could be a circus,

in which case I wouldn't want to miss it. But I won't sit in front of my TV hoping for something funny or interesting. I will ht the intertubes for highlights. It saves time to get someone with a higher tolerance for nonsense to sort through the boring stuff for me.

6. between the disgust at their platform and

the fascination of this slow moving train wreck, I will try to watch, but i hope to have access to sufficient amounts of antidote at hand.

10. I have my tv turned away at an angle, because

I don't want to get too much Stupid on me. Knowing it's on next to me as I type this gives me the shudders. I'm going to try though. I'm not sure how far I'll get before I simply shut it off and wait for TRMS.

12. I will watch some of it.

I think I have watched every convention since 1964. Maybe even earlier than that.

13. Are you kidding?

The single precious resource that is absolutely finite is time. Why would I want to lose some of whatever time I've got left on the planet on them?

I'll be engaged in my usual evening routine; a book, a purring bundle of fur in my lap competing for space and attention with said book, and a jug of icy water to combat summer temperatures. I'll sneak up to watch the deer that's been bedding down in my yard, underneath a massive old-fashioned rose bush get settled for the evening, and pause now and again to listen to the feral cat that's taken up residence meow and scratch at the screen door, knowing that if I actually got up and approached the door, it would bolt for cover.

The tv won't be on, and if it were, the last thing I'd be watching would be the Republican Convention. That's like someone filming the activity in an open latrine.

15. Wife is out of town, so I'm having a bunch of buddies over.

We are going to see who can kill their liver first. RNC - Convention The Drinking Game™

Now, we knew that a simple every time someone does or says (x) you take a shot, would likely kill one of us in the first 15 minutes. So it is more of a Bingo™ style that we have opted for.

I have arranged 5 Bingo™ Cards with the following phrases or imagery:
Lyin' Hillary
Benghazi
Corn Field
Crooked Hilary (double drink bonus if combined with the Lyin' Hilary)
A Black Person
A Black Person Under 40 (This will be the unicorn square me thinks)
Reagan
Cowboy Hat and Bolo Tie
Baby With Trump Button Pinned to Its Clothing
Chris Christie Shows ANY Emotion On His Face
Any Celebrity We all Thought Was Dead
Any Praise for Putin
Build a Wall
Mentioning the Ban Of ANY Minority
Creepy Ivanka Mention
I'm/He's a Successful/Rich Businessman
Mention of Weiner
Climate Change Denial
A Promise to Repeal "Obamacare"
"You're Fired!"
Pocahontas
Somebody Crying
