So. Fucking. Hung. Over.

Two of my cousins are in town visiting, which of course means I had to stay at my grandparents' place drinking and bullshitting until the wee hours, then sleep for a couple of hours on their couch before heading home and trying to put my fragile skull back together and going to work. I am waaaaay to old for this shit.

Cheney's pacemaker needs fresh battery

"WASHINGTON - Vice President Dick Cheney's routine checkup on Friday revealed no new blockages in his heart, but doctors said he needs a new battery for a special pacemaker he has in his chest, a spokeswoman said.

"The battery in his implanted cardiac defibrillator is reaching its limit, said Megan McGinn, deputy press secretary for the vice president."

I'm not buying this, that battery should have lasted another fifteen years.  A reptile that size, his heart beats what, twenty times per minute?
