It’s such a beautiful day today that it seems like a crime to come inside and do any work. Of course it seems like that on most days regardless of the weather. Work sucks, period. Although getting paid is often nice. If there was just some way I could get paid without working then I think I’d be on to something.

I also think I’m on to something when it comes to the comings and goings of North Korea’s geriatric autocrat, Kim Jong Il. Just when you think he’s gone he shows up like a cameo on a bad sitcom.

“North Korean leader Kim Jong Il ate local Siberian delicacies including omul fish as he toured the world’s largest freshwater lake, Baikal, today before a meeting with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev.

Kim, who made a 24-day railway trip across Russia to meet then-President Vladimir Putin in Moscow in 2001 and returned a year later to Vladivostok, is traveling on a 21-carriage train with his personal Mercedes. He arrived today in Ulan Ude, where regional officials and young people dressed in national costumes welcomed him, the state-run Itar-Tass news agency said.

Kim bathed in a swimming pool with water from Baikal before getting onto a boat for his lake tour, Itar-Tass said. He was later offered Siberian dishes including dumplings, boiled sausage and omul, a fish unique to Baikal.” – BLOOMBERG

If memory serves this guy was supposed to be on the brink of death as recently as last month. He seems pretty spry for a man in such allegedly ill health. Christ, he gets way more shit done than I do. Sailing? Swimming? Cruising in his Mercedes? He sounds pretty fucking healthy to me. Why are we worried about his successor at all? This guy is not going anywhere.

And why are they letting him wander around the country doing whatever the hell he wants? That’s like inviting the crazy uncle you don’t talk to over to your house for a few weeks. Just ask me for the money and I’ll mail you a check, Uncle Freddie. The judge said a thousand feet.

Some are speculating that this is part of a farewell tour for the 70-year-old North Korean leader. Despite running around Russia like Steve Austin he’s widely believed to be dying. Then again I’m widely believed to owe Visa a cold 5 big ones. But, I don’t put a lot of stock in hearsay. I’m a little too real for that.
