Take your head out of your ass buddy

Here's a thought for Mark Williams, the leader of the 'tea-party' movement - you're upset at President Obama for not embracing the whole country, correct? Maybe you're correct. But I think Obama will embrace the whole country the same time you do. I know that for you 'whole country' means rich white men, but to the rest of us it means everyone else. So when you start including them, maybe you'll get a bit more support (or maybe not since you're obviously a lunatic).

'Tea Party' Leader Melts Down On CNN

And here's a thought for Kanye West - you should have realized you did something wrong before you handed back the mike. In fact you should never have jumped up on the stage in the first place. No one cares who you think should have won. Your opinion is not the be-all-end-all. What the hell is wrong with you? If someone did that to you, you would have lost your shit. Get some fucking manners, Kanye.

Just NO

I think it's possible my brain just exploded - Cheney for President, Wall St Journal Op-Ed says.

Don't even fucking joke about that. What if you give them ideas? Let's file that under the worst idea of the century. No, the millennium. There's nothing that could happen in the next thousand years that would be a worse idea than that. I joked about leaving the country when Bush was reelected, and how I would have to if McCain was elected, but if that happened I would be fucking gone. I think I might have nightmares tonight. Forget Darth Vader comparisons (although the barely alive, sustained by machine thing is apt), he's like fucking Palpatine. Pure evil. Can we say the end of life as we know it?

Can we put a limit on the celebrity deaths? This whole two in one day thing is starting to get really depressing.

Kennedy Dead At 77 (The Boston Globes obit)

Dominick Dunne Dead At 83 (Huffington Post)

I didn't really know anything about Ted Kennedy, aside from the whole Chappaquiddick thing. He's just someone that was always there. It's a bit odd to think that there is no longer a Kennedy in the
Senate (there's not is there? I'm not really up on Massachusetts politics). It feels like the end of an era. After reading everyone's thoughts today, I can say he definitely accomplished a lot as a Senator. I believe that you can still think that he was kind of a dick in his personal life, what with the drinking and whoring around and being a murder suspect, but that it's possible to still admire everything that he did away from all that, in his professional life. And I admire anyone who dedicates their entire life to a cause, and to champion tirelessly to ensure that people that are less fortunate have a better life. So, well played your whole professional life Ted Kennedy. I can honestly say that I don't think there will be another one like you.

Even I know that

Driving home from work yesterday I was behind a little old lady in a Caddy. She was going slow and there was traffic so I couldn't pass her. Therefore, I had plenty of time to study her bumper sticker -

Trust God's mother

Pray the rosary

Now, the only reason I have retained any knowledge of Catholicism is for mocking purposes (which this totally fits), but even I know that GOD DOESN'T HAVE A MOTHER. Get your fucking religion straight lady. Your bumper sticker should say 'Trust Jesus' mother'. How did this escape your notice? Also the notice of the people who made the bumper sticker, but maybe they were just fucking with you.

Continuing in my afternoon drive of weirdness, I stopped to get a sandwich and there were these two teenage girls in the parking lot sitting in a wee little cart, pulled by the tiniest pony I have ever seen. When they pulled into a space, the cart and pony took up less than half the parking space. And they were just riding around the parking lot and pulling into random spaces. WTF?

I'm going to have to move

Really, Arnold Schwarzenegger? You don't think that this is the worst idea in the history of EVER? Cutting all state funding for domestic violence? On top of all the education cuts?

You have children. Don't you want them to have a good education? Oh wait, they probably don't go to a public school. And if they do, it's certainly not going to be in an area where the education cuts have caused the layoffs of 600 teachers. IN ONE AREA. What the hell are you thinking? California already has one of the worst education systems in the country. So naturally, giving less money to education is real wise choice.

Also, you have DAUGHTERS. As much as you don't even want to imagine them being in a situation where they would need a shelter for battered women, wouldn't you want everything possible available to them? The women who find themselves in need of those shelters are all someone's daughter. And cutting funding, and possibly causing a lot of shelters to close, will give I-don't-even-know-how-many women no place to turn. And then they will find themselves trapped in abusive relationships. So I think that you're no better than the men that are hitting these women. And maybe that's a bit harsh, but this really pisses me off.

Sometimes Chinese Food and Donut places make perfect sense to me. Other times they seem like the most bizarre thing ever. I do know that they have pretty fucking good donuts.
When I have a few extra minutes in the morning, and no food in my locker at work, I always stop by the one in town and get something for breakfast. Lately I've been getting apple fritters. And now I'm totally craving a donut something fierce. Guess I'll have to leave a little early tomorrow morning.

Don't you want me baby?

I'm having more fun than I should watching VH1's 100 Greatest One Hit Wonders Of The 80s.

Vacation All I Ever Wanted

For some reason I've been getting a ton of spam recently. Step up your game with the spam filters Comcast. Seriously. Anyway, one of the messages was for a vacation in....wait for it.....Branson, Missouri. And just the other day, while I was watching a 48 Hours Investigates marathon (do not mock my love of true crime) on TLC, there was like, 3 commercials each hour for Branson, Missouri. Is this a hot new vacation spot? I could see NYC, or SF or Miami. Someplace along those lines. But Missouri? I'm confused.

Also, I did see Virginia Madsen shilling for Botox and I was saddened. In case you didn't know, Botox touts 'flexibility'. Considering every person I've seen on tv with Botox has the most inflexible, unmoving face possible, I think we all know what a joke that is.

I know you can be overwhelmed, and you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?

It's possible that if I don't get a massage soon I may cry.

In other news.....nope. I got nothin' else. It's possible I'm incredibly boring. Haven't really been doing much of anything lately, except going to wedding showers (hate) and weddings. Thank god that's over. I will be going to Disneyland in a few weeks. Which is Yay!Fun! but we'll be there on the last Friday of spring break. So it's possible I will have killed someone before the day is over. Cross your fingers I don't end up in jail.

Poor Jimmy Carter. No one wants to stand very close to him :( Everyone else is so close they're practically touching, and he's off to the side, gazing wistfully at 'the cool kids'. He can console himself with the fact that really only one of them falls into that category. One is half-way there, and the other two are in no way included in that group.
