Constitution Day Visions

This comment wins the internets:

"Disturbing, But Oddly Satisfying Vision Update: A comment from Mrs. Peel too good not to promote to the mainpage:

Of course! It's Constitution Day!

*envisions the Constitution taking bodily form and rampaging through Congress, avenging the abuses it has suffered*

"Oh, you want me to JUSTIFY eating you, Senator? Just read the COMMERCE CLAUSE! What's that you say? The Commerce Clause governs only interstate commerce? NOT ACCORDING TO YOU IT DOESN'T! NOM NOM NOM"

Om nom nom, indeed! Run, Senator, Run!"

Spent most of the afternoon at the VA vascular clinic having my leg wounds looked at by a couple of doctors, a nurse, and a medical student from GWU. No infection, fortunately, and they told me to start using the compression sleeves I was using in Minnesota again. Between this and the four-layer bandage they applied to my legs, they estimate I'll be healed up in a month and into Jobst compression stockings again. Booya. Going back next week for a follow-up. Have not decided yet whether driving to the VA hospital downtown (actually a block off North Capitol Street over by Catholic University and the National Shrine) is as big a pain in the ass as taking the Metro; it's for sure driving anywhere in these bandages, which don't fit into my shoes, is full of fail. I do have some strap-on clog thingies I got at the hospital, but those are about as handy as clown shoes and make driving an experience I want to avoid.

Still, P and I are going to get the Sportage out of hock tomorrow and unload the Subaru. I have the feeling I'm going to miss that slushbox.
