"P into V"

I like reality shows that are "real," so, of course, there aren't really any reality shows I'm interested in watching. But "Sex Change Hospital" on We network is fascinating. Nate never really has understood my fascination with the whole gender fixing thing, but I think it is because:
  • I like the voyeuristic thrill of the before and after, just as I do on any plasctic surgery show as well.
  • I so admire the lengths to which the people in this situation are willing to go to be themselves.
Few people on this earth ever even try to be their "true" selves much less go to such painful lengths--both emotionally and physically.
But the show is very well done and heartwarming, in most cases and I highly recommend watching it.

Proud Ma

Forgot to mention the other week that Holden made high honors his first semester of high school. So PROUD!!! [BEAMING]
Also, now Ethan got his super long, lustrous locks cut short--for him--it's a long flop on the one front side and short all around. Very '80s skater boy. I guess that's retro cool now. This follows on the heels of Holden cutting off his long, curly hair in the early fall. Sigh... they look super cute, but I miss their long hair.

I heart Ronnie Howard. Hard.

See more Ron Howard videos at Funny or Die

You KNOW he's serious when he shows us his gut AND his bald, bald head!!


From DailyKos:
Mr. McCAIN. Madam President, the amendment before the Senate is a very simple one. It restricts the use of campaign funds for inherently personal purposes. The amendment would restrict individuals from using campaign funds for such things as home mortgage payments, clothing purchases, noncampaign automobile expenses, country club memberships, and vacations or other trips that are noncampaign in nature.

From Committee on Standards of Official Conduct:
Proper Use of Campaign Funds and Resources

McCain loves Club Hunts and bush. Loves me some Keith.

Okay, so you've all heard this by now:
Book: McCain temper boiled over in '92 tirade, called wife a 'cunt'

But methinks the word is too "on the tip of his tongue" for my taste. (Um, please excuse any double entendre as I am quite sure he doesn't think of it "that way.")

And then there's this:

To which Keith adds a second great dimension.

"Postelection remarks"? Is that code for concession speech? Not getting cocky, just asking.

McCain might skip his own election-night party

Oct 23 04:28 PM US/EasternBy BETH FOUHY Associated Press Writer
NEW YORK (AP) - John McCain's election night watch party might be missing John McCain. Instead of appearing before a throng of supporters at the Biltmore Hotel in Phoenix on the evening of Nov. 4, the Republican presidential nominee plans to deliver postelection remarks to a small group of reporters and guests on the hotel's lawn.
Aides said Thursday that the arrangement was due to space limitations and that McCain might drop by the election watch party at some other point.
McCain's remarks will be piped electronically into the party and media filing center, aides said. Only a small press "pool"—mostly those who have traveled regularly with the candidate on his campaign plane, plus a few local Arizona reporters and others—will be physically present when he speaks.
Thomas Patterson, a government professor at Harvard's Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy, called the arrangement "unusual" but said the campaign may simply be bowing to the reality that the candidate's remarks are geared toward the televised audience rather than those in the hall.
"Addressing your supporters election night is one of those traditions in politics, like where you choose to launch your campaign," Patterson said. "Why wouldn't you want the energy of the crowd? And if you're going to lose, you almost need it even more."
With just 12 days left in the presidential contest, most polls show the Arizona senator trailing Democrat Barack Obama nationally and in most battleground states, although a new AP-GfK poll showed the race tightening a bit in the last few days.
Obama, by contrast, plans to address a giant outdoor celebration election night in Chicago's Grant Park. The event is free and open to the public, but the campaign was charging media organizations a hefty fee for close-in spots on the camera risers and platforms and for cable and wireless Internet at those spots.
The Obama campaign was also charging news organizations $935 per person for a spot in its press filing center, as opposed to $695 per person at the McCain gathering. But as Obama spokesman Bill Burton pointed out, "Anyone credentialed for our filing center will also be able to watch the event live and in person, unlike the McCain event."

Don't you KNOW who I AM?? (It must be a gene or something...)


How the Senator Lost it at a Puerto Rican Casino

Taxes?!? We don't pay no stinkin' taxes!!

By way of AMERICAblog:

So when is Sarah Palin paying $50,000 in taxes on the $150,000 in clothes the RNC gave her?
John Aravosis (DC) · 10/23/2008 01:13:00 AM ET ·
As you know, the Republicans bought Sarah Palin $150,000 in clothes last month - that's more than the average American household spends on clothes in 80 years. That's also a gift. And it's a taxable gift. It doesn't matter if it's for work. And it doesn't matter if the Republicans now say they're going to donate the clothes to charity after it's over. Sarah Palin can't accept $150,000 dollars in goods, use them, then later give them away to charity and not pay taxes on the gift she received. By the time she gives them away to charity, they're used clothes - and worth about 1/3 of their original value. So, sure, she can take a tax deduction on the $50,000 in clothes she's giving away (a savings of perhaps $15k or so), but she still has to pay $50k or so in taxes on the $150,000 gift she received in the first place. That means Palin will owe $35,000 net in taxes due to her big shopping spree at Neiman Marcus and Saks. And the Republicans can't help her pay for it, or she'll be paying taxes on their help as well. Of course, Palin is no stranger to failing to report her taxable income - she did the same thing while serving as governor of Alaska.

I've always wanted a son named Cuisinart, so I can see her point.

People:Alicia also wondered if you had any more unique names up your sleeve.
SP: We did. We never got to get our Zamboni in. I always wanted a son named Zamboni.
TP: I don't think that would have flied.

Todd Palin, the voice of reason, folks.

Another Idiot for McCain and Two People with Integrity Formerly "for" McCain

It's funny and sad.

Then there's these two: Robocaller quits his job & Woman quits job at call center over anti-Obama script

More racism. Again. Still. Whatever.

John McCain’s Racism and Why It Matters

Despite the right weirdos saying there is no proof this happened, I have listened to this video several times and hear the same thing I heard when I listened to it live:

  • McCain: In short, who is the real Barack Obama?

  • [Simultaneously]Man 1: Terrorist! Man 2: Kill him!

  • [assorted crowd noise]

  • Man 3: We are killin' him! [Presumably this man means "in the polls." Does the first??]

Voter Registration Fraud vs. Voter Registration Fraud & Vote Fraud


P.S. ...and voter harassment:
McCain Supporters Heckle Early Voters, Call Them 'Cheaters'

Elite vs Joe "The Plumber" Six-Pack


Look Is the Same; the Labels Have Changed

RNC shells out $150K for Palin fashion

$150,000 Wardrobe for Palin May Alter Tailor-Made Image

What the eff is wrong with the right?

Somehow the right wing nutjobs are turning Obama's visit to his sick grandmother into a bad thing. I am nauseated by these people's tactics even more so than usual.

McCain Thinks "Patriots" are Card 56 Douchebags

I had a shorter version of this video to share, but after seeing the whole first minute on CNN just now, I sought out longer version. Note how tied up he gets after he realizes his mistake. You almost expect him to yell, "Run away! Run away!" And run all higgledy-piggledy off the stage. Note at the end he almost says "agree" again. Good stuff. I've watched it a bazillion times and it stays just as funny, to me anyway.

Tuesday, October 21, 2008

Who's gonna turn down a Junior Mint? It's chocolate, it's peppermint, it's delicious.

A little wee tiny bit of politics. Just a little.

McCain is a "Card 56 douchebag." Again.

Well, this card-carrying, hairy-legged, socialist feminist will be proud to counter the "counter" of Palin with a vote for Obama.

By now you've probably heard that Palin thinks some of us in the (AHEM!) blue states ain't so patriotic. Card 56 douchebag (and my pal) Michele Bachmann (R.-Minn) was kind enough to have Palin's back on that one. Can't wait for the all-girl version of the HUAC. HOT!

More racist bullshite if you can stand it:

  1. Snohomish County GOP pulls "$3 bills" smearing Obama from fair booth

  2. Incendiary sign in McCain office links Obama to dictators

  3. Obama effigy found hanging at George Fox University

Sarah Palin is an unethical thief, part 2.
Alaska funded Palin kids' travel
(Ya gotta read this one, goshdarnit. Sarah SixPack sounds so goldang down to earth. Just like me. Especially the part about spendin' $21K of someone elses money on plane tickets and thousands of someone elses money on separate luxury hotel rooms for the kiddos over the course of 23 months, you betcha, goshdarnit.)

Horrible people exploit their own children so "the gays" don't get married and somehow...exploit...their children? Hmmm...wait, that can't be right...

This is seriously effed up. What the hell is going on in today's Army? Seriously?

Army to probe 5 slayings linked to Colo. brigade
By P. SOLOMON BANDA, Associated Press Writer P. Solomon Banda, Associated Press Writer – Sat Oct 18, 10:12 am ET
DENVER – Fort Carson soldiers returning from deployment in Iraq are suspects in at least five slayings, and officials want to know why.Commander Maj. Gen. Mark Graham announced Friday a task force will examine any commonalities in the five killings, all allegedly committed by soldiers from the post's 4th Brigade Combat Team in the past 14 months. A sixth BCT soldier faces an attempted murder charge. "We have many great young Americans in our Army who have volunteered to serve during a time of war, almost all of whom are great citizens," Graham said in a statement. "However, we too are very concerned about these horrible acts." Fort Carson also plans to re-screen about 1,200 soldiers from the brigade for potential physical or mental health problems. Earlier Friday, Colorado Sen. Ken Salazar asked Army Secretary Pete Geren to investigate the slayings. Officials learned of the latest on Monday, when Spc. Robert Hull Marko, 21, led investigators to the body of 19-year-old Judilianna "Judi" Lawrence, whom he met on the social networking Web site MySpace, according to an arrest affidavit released Tuesday. The affidavit said Marko told investigators he had violent sex with Lawrence before slitting her throat and leaving her to die in the foothills west of Colorado Springs. His next court appearance is Monday. The issue of homicides by combat-stressed veterans gained national prominence in January, after The New York Times reported that at least 121 Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans had committed a killing in the United States or been charged in one. Karen Linne, a spokeswoman for Fort Carson, said commanders two months ago ordered squad leaders and team leaders to reevaluate soldiers to see if they need additional help following concerns raised after another soldier from the unit was linked to a double slaying. Pfc. Jomar Dionisio Falu-Vives, 24, and
Spc. Rodolfo Torres-Gandarilla, 20, face attempted murder charges in the May 26 wounding of Capt. Zachary Zsody, who was shot twice while standing at an intersection. An arrest affidavit released in August said an AK-47 used in the Zsody case was found in Falu-Vives' apartment and it was also used in the June 6 deaths of two people gunned down on the street while putting up signs for a garage sale. Killed were Cesar Ramirez Ibanez, 21, and Amairany Cervantes, 28. Prosecutors filed murder charges against Falu-Vives on Sept. 15. Three other members of the unit were accused in the slayings of two soldiers. Bruce Bastien Jr. was sentenced last month to 60 years in prison. He pleaded guilty to accessory to murder in the December shooting death of Kevin Shields, and conspiracy to commit murder in the August 2007 death of Robert James.
Bastien, and co-defendant Kenneth Eastridge, both agreed to testify against fellow Iraq war veteran Louis Bressler, the alleged triggerman. Eastridge pleaded guilty July 11 to accessory to murder in Shields' death and will be sentenced Nov. 3. Bressler is scheduled to go on trial in the Shield slaying Nov. 3, while his trial in the James homicide is scheduled for Dec. 1. "Those who committed these violent crimes should be brought to justice," said Salazar. "But these tragedies also raise a number of questions from the backgrounds and service records of these soldiers, to whether they received waivers to enter the service, to the adequacy of mental health screening and treatment within the Army." Falu-Vives and Torres-Gandarilla, accused together in one case and Bastien, Bressler and Eastridge, accused in the two slayings, served in Iraq last year with the 2nd Battalion of the 4th Brigade Combat Team. There weren't any immediate indications that both sets of men knew each other. Marko was a mortarman with Charlie Company, 3rd Squadron, 61st Cavalry Regiment, of the 4th BCT and served from February 2007 until February of this year.

Alton Brown, a man who owes his living to those who love food, is a fattist. Gross.

Food Star Alton Brown Talks Sustainability
struggled with weight all my life, and probably always will. But I was on my most recent book tour I was shocked by the number of overweight families,” he says. “People would come up to me and say, ‘Oh, we love the Food Network.’ Well,
no (expletive); did you eat the TV? There’s only four of you and you can’t ride
in an elevator together. I’ll probably make fat people angry, but we need, as a
culture, to be ashamed. It’s not “… healthy.”[whole article at link]

Finally, a personal note:

Ugh, it was a long day. I left the house at 9:45 a.m. and returned at 8:30 p.m. and still had a bunch of admin stuff to do. At least I'm getting hours in, right?
So..."the incident" i mentioned the other day? Well, a respondent met me at my car with a gun and told me to get off of the property. I quickly obliged. Went back to work yesterday, finally, and got another freakazoid flipping out in their own paranoid, government-hating, inbred hillbilly way. Thus proving that the jokes regarding that particular county's ignorance (in every sense of the word) are based in a modicum of sad, sad truth. I won't name the county, as I would violate confidentiality laws, but if you're from around here, you probably know which county I mean. (Yesterday was not traumatizing, just annoying as all hell.) I'm doing okay now, just dreading the next few months "up there." Nate handled the news admirably, although he is still fighting the urge, he says, to go up there himself. Probably doesn't hurt his odds at not getting shot that I would never tell him the address. ;-)
And I know I haven't talked about my mental state in a while and that is one at least a couple of people ended up here.
It's fall. I'm blue.
But, don't panic!! I'm not what I qualify (for me, at least) as depressed. At lot this has to do with the shorter days. A little has to do with my boys separating more and more from me as they self-actualize more and more. The past few days there is a bit of anger at humans who threaten other humans merely for existing thrown into the mix. And a LOT of it has to do with the exhaustion I have been experiencing lately in conjunction with neauropathy, both of which are, still, as yet unexplained. Sigh. But I know what the causes are, so I am able to deal with the various aspects in effective ways. Today I read that the brain stimulating magnet which I've following closely for years now has been approved by the government for use. This heartens me a lot, and it is something I will try to pursue before more ECT if it ever comes to that. But I am still a hearty proponent of ECT for those who can get no relief otherwise for whatever reason (drug resistance, pregnancy, old age, etc.). Some people might question how I can take such chances with my most important organ. My answer is, if you had ever experienced my brain, you, too, would probably do whatever you needed to do to try to make your way back from hell for yourself, your children, your husband, your parents, whatever or whoever it is that anchors you to this Earth. There was no other answer left for me and I made the decision as fully informed as one can be without actually training to perform the prodcedure. The magnet? Well, I think if I get to that point again, why not try something less invasive? If it doesn't work? Back to the ECT again. And if it does work, but later we find out there was some horrible after effect? Well, I will have had the time that it gave me back, and perhaps my having participated in the treatment will have helped to discover or confirm whatever the problems were. I have no problem with being a guinea pig. As long as I am as fully informed as I can be and I feel comfortable with what is knowable, I feel like maybe my willingness to pioneer (or whatever) could help others who aren't willing to be ealry adapters or guinea pigs or whatever you may want to label it. Some people play(ed) "chemistry class" with their bodies in other ways, I choose to do it in potentially helpful ways, either for me or for others or both.

Moving on...

My plants are all doing amazingly well, even the pothos which I almost (somehow) killed. 9ddon't laugh!) When I divided it into three smaller sections instead of one HUGE section it plumped right back up. YAY!

Just watched Law & Order: SVU and, by gosh, by golly, my honey Chris Eliot played an astronaut stalking weirdo. Straight. It was awesome!

And right after that I watched last night's Countdown, on which he told a cool story:

Keith always has little tidbits like this, and they always make me wonder if there isn't some kind of Six Degrees game we couldn't make up for him. He's connected to EVERYTHING, man!

(And p.s.: His Special Comment was great, too. He hates Bachmann as much as he should.)

And lastly I watched Craig Ferguson (Cleg Feh-guson) who had Leanne Marshall on and went on and about Project Runway. He is actually, apparently, a HUGE fan. Which cemented it: he had made THE LIST!

So the new list is:

  1. Jon Stewart
  2. Christian Bale
  3. Keith Olberman
  4. Daniel Craig
  5. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt--but only as a team!! ;-)

But most of all my wonderful, loving husband who does sexy-ass-motherfucking things like cook me chocolate pudding, put it in a HUGE measuring cup with a comfortable handle and letting me eat spoon by spoon and not sharing it because I had a tough week and my period on top of that. That's (as Paris would say) HOT!

Someday soon, I'll get my verbosity under control. But there is so much going on in the world right now!!! TTFN, sweeties! (Sleepy....YAWN!)

I think I'm in love.

Sarah Haskins' "Target Women" on infoMania (Current) is about the funniest thing on tv right now.

Three different e-mails, all good questions:

Over the past two months I have received three separate emails with the same basic premise, hypocrisy of the right.
Here they are:

Number One:
    • If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you're 'exotic,
      different.'/Grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers: you're a quintessential
      American story.
    • If your name is Barack you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim. /Name your kids Willow, Trig, and Track: you're a maverick.
    • Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable. /Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating: you're well grounded.
    • If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience./If your total resume is: local weather girl (sports caster), 4 years on thecity council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with fewer than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with 650,000 people, then you're qualified to become the country's second highest ranking executive.
    • If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian. /If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian.
    • If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society./If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state's school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you're very responsible.
    • If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values don't represent America's./ If your husband is
      nicknamed 'First Dude', with at least one DUI conviction and no college
      education, who didn't register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a
      group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is
      extremely admirable.
Number 2:
  • If you're a minority and you're selected for a job over more qualified candidates you're a "token hire."/If you're a conservative and you're selected for a job over more qualified candidates you're a "game changer."
  • Black teen pregnancies? A "crisis" in black America. /White teen pregnancies? A "blessed event."
  • If you grow up in Hawaii you're "exotic."/Similarly, if you name your kid Barack you're "unpatriotic."/Name your kid Track, you're "colorful."
  • If you're a Democrat and you make a VP pick without fully vetting the individual you're reckless."/A Republican who doesn't fully vet is a "maverick."
  • If you spend 3 years as a community organizer growing your organization from a staff of 1 to 13 and your budget from $70,000 to $400,000, then become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new African American voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, then spend nearly 8 more years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, becoming chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, then spend nearly 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of nearly 13 million people, sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you are woefully inexperienced./If you spend 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, then spend 20 months as the governor of a state with 650,000 people, then you've got the most executive experience of anyone on either ticket, are the Commander in Chief of the Alaska military and are well qualified to lead the nation should you be called upon to do so because your state is the closest state to Russia.
  • If you are a Democratic male candidate who is popular with millions of people you are an "arrogant celebrity". /If you are a popular Republican female candidate you are "energizing thebase".
  • If you are a younger male candidate who thinks for himself and makes his own decisions you are "presumptuous"./If you are an older male candidate who makes last minute decisions you refuse to explain, you are a "shoot from the hip" maverick.
  • If you are a candidate with a Harvard law degree you are "an elitist-out of touch" with the real America. /If you are a legacy (dad and granddad were admirals) graduate of Annapolis, with multiple disciplinary infractions you are a hero.
  • If you manage a multi-million dollar nationwide campaign, you are an "empty suit". /If you are a part time mayor of a town of 7000 people, you are an “experienced executive".
  • If you go to a south side Chicago church, your beliefs are "extremist". /If you believe in creationism and don't believe global warming is man made, you are "strongly principled".
  • If you kill an endangered species, you're an excellent hunter. /If you have an abortion your not a Christian, you're a murderer (forget about if it happen while being date raped.)
  • If you teach abstinence only in sex education, you get teen parents. /If you teach responsible age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.

Number 3:

  • What if John McCain were former president of Harvard Law Review?
  • What if Barack Obama finished fifth from the bottom of his graduating class?
  • What if John McCain were still married to the first woman he said "I do" to?
  • What if Barack Obama left his first wife after she no longer measured up to his standards?
  • What if John McCain was a charismatic speaker?
  • What if Barack Obama were a member of the Keating 5?
  • What if Cindy McCain graduated from Harvard?
  • What if Michelle Obama not only became addicted to painkillers but acquired them illegally through her charitable organization?
Fun stuff. Feel free to send me any others you may receive.

Barely ANY Politics!!!

Amy Poehler is a freaking genius, and she is about a hundred times cuter with her big preggo belly. She absolutley stole last night's SNL with two skits last night, one of which was the Palin rap. (As a side note, as much as I hate Palin, after the Weekend Update was over I told Nate, "If I didn't hate her so much, I'd really like her right now." Plus now we know that both tickets have one person with the ability to bust a move cutely. I was not happy that Palin seems to be a decent actress as that is not something I want in a VP.) I'll be sad to see her move on from the show, but Kristen Wiig seems to be the emerging female comice star on SNL, so at least we won't be left bereft. (Fun fact: Wiig spent some of her growing up years in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.)

Movies I'm jonesing for:
  • W.
  • Nick & Norah s Infinite Playlist
But knowing me, I'll see them on DVD. Don't get out much to movies anymore...
The casting in W. looks genius if not, at first, obvious. Especially Jeffrey Wright as Gen. Colin Powell. Genius. (And Once in a Lifetime seems a perfect song for the trailer.) I'm rarely over the moon for Stone movies, but I've got it bad for this one.
Which leads me to today's big--but not suprising, really--Obama endorsements: Gen. Colin Powell and Fareed Zakaria. Obama also has about three times as many newspaper endorsements, so I've lost track of the most recent of those.
Not much going one today. Just reading the Sunday Times, catching up on some magazines I am really behind on reading (New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Ms. and Bitch; yeah, most of my magazine "reading" lately has been gossip rags and fashion mags. Sigh. I'm an addict.), watching Sunday talking head, drinking coffee and generally being a fat, lazy fuck.

Shopping, Snarkiness, Spoilers for Slow-Watchers and Some Shit about the Elections


Did you see the Project Runway Season 5 Finale? I cannot believe Leanne won. The collections were all a bit lackluster as far as I was concerned, but Korto's was the best of the three. It was so vibrant and full of life. And accessible to all body types, which Leanne's and Kenley's were not. Kenley's surprisingly had a few pieces I liked, showed her personality, and was well executed and cohesive. But that "Balenciaga rip-off" was horrid! And I am not a fan of any of the hand painting. Goofy stuff. (P.S. Though I hate Kenley and a lot of her designs, I do have the feather fascinator bug now. Sigh. At least they are something I can actually make.) Leanne's collection was extremely well-executed, extremely pale, extremely cohesive (like sticky rice or wheat paste) and extremely one note. Technically gorgeous, emotionally cold.
And I obviously have no idea how Project Runway works in [real] reality, because here are Jerrell's beautiful collection; Joe's Stella-like weird, ugly-ass collection; and Suede apparently did a prom/pageant/cotillion collection.
I did love all three finalist's runway music and have tracked down Kenley's (apparently composed by her boyfriend?) and Leanne's (composed by her boyfriend). Korto's continues to elude me even though it was my favorite of the three. (It is either by Fela Kuti--but I don't know the title--or Osyrusakbar's, so says himself and, again, I cannot find the piece or even the title.)
One last note about Leanne: WHAT was up with her hair and makeup in her final interview on the aired episode? She looked like a wet, sad mouse. Even if she got caught in a storm, couldn't they have fixed her up for the interview, at least??

Moving on...
  • Payless will be doing a sustainable shoe and purse collection. I love Payless for fashion shoes and have a ton, but tend to were my good sturdy expensive comfortable shoes most of the time.
  • Nate and I were watching Kath & Kim last night (which I love, TW; Selma Blair referred to it as an "American tragedy" and it is, really, but funny as hell) and they mentioned Merry Go Round. The mention caused Nate and I to have a five minute nostalgia trip wherein we remembered Chess King as well. Remember those stores? The epitome of '80s cool at my school. They also played Erasure's Respect, causing a second round of nostalgia
  • One of my gossip rags showed Brad Pitt bicycling in N'Awlins with what looked like a gigantic Moleskine notebook. Only they don't make them that big, and Moleskine's don't have pencil loops. So what is it? If you find it let me know. I thought maybe it was this one but, the corners are rounded on Pitt's and squared on this one. My Moleskine obsession (because of the beauty and simplicity of them, not necessarily the brand) causes me to seriously covet this notebook.
  • I cannot stop wearing my Bandit perfume. Even to bed and in my sweats. It's dirty clean, which I love. I smell like a sexed up lady who just took a good soap-fueled bath. I love it. So now my favorite perfumes to wear are both Robert Piguet--Fracas and Bandit. I want the rest now. Even the designed-for-men Cravache.
  • This toilet paper rocks! Natural Value is not all shred-y and thin like most "green" tp. It's still no Charmin, but I think the Newcomer family has found a new tp after years--YEARS!!--of Charmin addiction. Now if I could break our mean-ass boy cat NCL of his clay, non-scoopable litter. We tried all of the green litters with gradual transitions and once the mixture gets to a certain level he pisses outside the box to say, "Hey! This litter BLOWS, assholes!!"
Clone wars:

And now, POLITICS:
  • You know who I hate? Rep. Michele Bachmann (R) of Minnesota. Apropos of nothing, really. I'm just sick of her, I cannot wait until the election is over and I don't have to listen to this a-hole anymore.
  • Did you see McCain and Obama at the Alfred E. Smith Foundation banquet last night? Both were funny. Although McCain's roast of Obama was a bit more "roast-y" than Obama's was of McCain. Obama was a bit more self-deprecating. But both were funny.
  • Will Todd Palin get security clearance? Well, yes, I'm sure he will, but the question is valid and thought provoking.
  • Another mailer in Virginia compares Obama to terrorists, or even calls him one, maybe.
  • More proof regarding the real Obama tax plan follows in Samuel "Joe" "The Fucking" "Plumber" Wurzelbacher's wake.
  • Arizona Republicans want to do the right thing for the wrong reasons regarding robo-calls going on there.

So that's about it for now. Later tater's.

These Pretzels Are Making Me Thirsty

Election Stuff:

Still fundraising for Obama, if you're giving, do it through my Obama page, please!

McCain said in the debate he lost last night (basically) that his supporters are good people, not hateful, and how dare you (or Rep. John Lewis [D] of Georgia) imply that??

Really??!!?? Really?!?!? How about these:

  1. Inland GOP mailing depicts Obama's face on food stamp
  2. Inflammatory Republican rallies raise concerns
  4. For Some, Uncertainty Starts at Racial Identity
  5. Racism Revealed At McCain/Palin Rallies
  6. Material linking Obama to Bin Laden removed from Sacramento GOP Web site
  7. [Republican National Committee ] GOP mail ties Obama to terrorists
HMMM????? What about those? [Crickets]

Easiest Q&A ever (Bitch Ph.D. mocks McCain's Q & A style in a most succinct manner.)

McCain is an Asshole, Part MCCXXXVIII (or more, I've lost count):

And, by the way, can we stop, already, with the term "partial birth abortion?" It's called an intact dilation and extraction. Don't be a nitwit. You too, Obama. (This is one of a few things on which I disagree with Obama.) BTW, again, I am not against late-term abortion, and, yes, I am pro-abortion, and unapologetically, so stop using it as an epithet, ya doodooheads. I am also pro-life. Stew that one over for a while. Confuses your tiny heads doesn't it, you narrow-minded right-wing nuts? And I love the morning after pill, to. So there. Unfortunately, Indian women are not getting enough education on its use. And there is one form not yet available, again unfortunately.

And for fun:

Sarah Palin picture via The Mills River Progressive:

Joe "The Fucking" Plumber: Is a "Card 56" Douchebag*. He's not a licensed plumber, always knew he was going to vote for McCain (ya just know it), is a tax evader, and an utter douchebag who doesn't like Obama's "socialism." Or the "socialism" of Social Security.

Palin t-shirt I NEED!

Republicans hate Republicans, now. (I guess kinda like my hubby.)

Palin might not have blinked, but McCain sure as heck did, ya, you betcha.

A couple o' random news items which caught my eye:

  1. Pumpkin symbol marks sex offenders' homes
  2. Rabbit invasion shuts Mandela museum
  3. NJ flu-shot mandate for preschoolers draws outcry
  4. Palin says God blessed America with oil and gas
  5. Disco tune "Stayin' Alive" could save your life
  6. Mom allegedly takes daughter to fight, intervenes
  7. Man practicing a quick draw shoots himself in leg
  8. Drinking mom asks daughter, 9, to drive
  9. Kids Pulled From Transgender Teacher's Class

Kayly Stuff:

I just got polled on the election for about the 10th time. This time it was, I think they said "Pennsylvania Research Institute" or Center or something. It was automated, so I couldn't ask them to repeat it.

Had my rheumatologist appointment today. She basically said she didn't know what is going on. More tests. This time it's Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST) . And later she says I might want to revisit this with my PCP and possibly even do a sleep study to see if there is a cause for my increased fatigue of which I'm not aware. (Apnea, snoring, anything else...)

I'm taking a few days off of work with my boss' and boss' boss' approval. Weird, scary, icky encounter with a respondent. That's all I'll say on that for now, so don't ask. [Side note: I was unsure of the possessive form of boss, so I went to Google and typed in "possessive for of" and one the of the Google suggested searches was "possessive form of boss," so I felt less stupid. ;-)

Separated at birth:

*"Card 56" Douchebag is my latest attempt to enter the slang lexicon. It refers to the card in the book we use for the NSFG when asking women about douching habits. USE IT , DAMMIT! ;-)

A 2nd Betty Rocks My World

I have nothing to say about the debate.

If you like Obama, you probably think he won. If you like McCain, you probably think he won. (And ended up on this page by accident.) And if you're undecided...20 days out...then fuck you and grow a fucking pair.
Intelligent discourse this is not, but truth it is.

That Heroes girl has a DIRTY mouth! S-E-X-Y!

See more Hayden Panettiere videos at Funny or Die

My youngest sent this to my oldest who sent it to me, and now I share it with you to show how relevant I can be. Plus it's hy-fucking-sterical. (Why is this word not catching on yet, are you guys using it in casual converstaion??)

To be clear and a footnote to my comments last night:

Yes, to be clear: I am not using "retarded" as a disparaging word but in the literal sense, here.
Reportedly, but without substantial proof, Palin's IQ is 83.

According to the Weschler Scale (the scale being used in this supposed transcript):
Gifted 130 and above
Superior 120-129
High Average 110-119
Average 90-109
Low Average 80-89
Borderline Mental Retardation 70-79
Mild mental retardation 50–69

And last night I said, "A momentary lapse of the normal idiocy (of course, I won't mention that McCain thinks the opposite of Muslim is a decent man, but hey, he was trying, sort of)[...]"
Tonight I watched last night's Countdown and Keith bascially said the same thing. What can I say? Great minds... ;-)

Another Flower and More Lazy Blogging

Usually Canna Lillies bloom in the heat of summer around here, but we didn't plant any of ours (received from a Freecycler) until the heat of summer. Well, imagine my surprise when I saw thiss out my window today. Isn't it pretty? These are Canna lily 'tropicanna.'

I have a few more things from the election front which I was too tired to post last night.

Here we go:

Altough he left Countdown under weird circumstances, I still read Dana Milbank occassionally. The other week he wrote this:

Unleashed, Palin Makes a Pit Bull Look Tame

The fact that anti-choice terrorism in this country has always been mostly ignored dumbfounds me. And now that the whole "Ayers thing" is being beaten to death, I'm glad someone pointed out McCain's implicit condoning of such acts.

John McCain's Domestic Terrorism Problem (new video)

Gail Collins usually hits the nail on the head and makes me laugh all at once without being as snarky as Maureen Dowd.

Dear Old Golden Dog Days
By GAIL COLLINS Published: October 10, 2008 I miss the good old days. Remember when the presidential campaign was all about oil drilling? That sure was fun.

Interesting stuff on the "I was a P.O.W." front:

McCain and the POW Cover-up

The "war hero" candidate buried information about POWs left behind in Vietnam Research support provided by the Investigative Fund of The Nation Institute. This is an expanded version, with primary documents attached, of a story that appears in the October 6, 2008 issue of The Nation. By Sydney H. SchanbergSeptember 18, 2008 John McCain, who has risen to political prominence on his image as a Vietnam POW war hero, has, inexplicably, worked very hard to hide from the public stunning information about American prisoners in Vietnam who, unlike him, didn't return home. Throughout his Senate career, McCain has quietly sponsored and pushed into federal law a set of prohibitions that keep the most revealing information about these men buried as classified documents. Thus the war hero who people would logically imagine as a determined crusader for the interests of POWs and their families became instead the strange champion of hiding the evidence and closing the books.

Coal miners in West Virginia stay home in protest of anti-Obama NRA tactics
Posted by Kate Sheppard at 12:47 PM on 07 Oct 2008 Coal production at the Blacksville No. 2 Mine in Monongalia County, W.Va., came to a halt for one day last week when all the miners stayed home in protest after a National Rifle Association camera crew tried to get them to bad-mouth Barack Obama on film.

A little bit on me & stuff-I-read-on-other-blogs-round-up

Hope you all had a great Italian rapist/pillager/enslaver/syphilis spreader Day!

My work computer is at the computer doctor. So I'll have to squish in my hours at the end of the week--again. They might compensate me for the lost hours from computer problems, but I'm not real clear on that. I know they compensated me for lost hours during quarter closing because I did not have enough work left to keep me busy. So, we'll see...

My husband and I celebrated out 14th anniversary on Saturday. He got me a gorgeous Konstantino three stone faceted citrine ring. I'd show you a picture, but it is being sent to the company to be be sized properly for my huge ass hands. :-( But you can see a pink tourmaline version here.

The weekend before this past one Nate got me a bouquet at Costco, and I always like their bouqets, but this had a neat flower called a pink mink protea:

The flowers and leaves got dark at the edges within a week so I have to be more careful about clean vase/clean water/sterm trimming if I get one again. The colors in this flash picture look more clash-y than they do in real life, but they clash in a nice Kayly-ish sort of way in real life.

Then this week I got myself a beautiful Halloween arrangement at Linglestown Flowers and Gifts (don't bother Googling them; it's just their Teleflora site and they do some of their own work that is gorgeous). They always have an arrangement in my Starbucks that are great, but this is the first time I had to buy them. I know I don't seem like a "holiday arrangment" girl, but check this:

The first photo is without flash and the second with flash. The true colors are more subtly in between. Matchy and clashy puply fuschia and fuschia-y purple with that wonderful grass green POP!

Cartoons of the week (courtesy of Bust Blog and Zen Comix):

(I love the Zen Comix one so much because it is the exact point I made during the debate.)

The rest is a random round-up of the election and what I've been reading and watching this past week. Buckle up!

This article by Michael Kinsey about a McCain craps table blow-up is interesting in its own gossipy way. So much for Obama being the only celebrity running for POTUS.

If you're an Obama Mama, you might want to see if there is a group near you.

And if you hate poly-blend fabric as much as I do watch this video. Oh, wait, what? Muslim? Oooooooohhhh....

More ignorant assholes make me lose a little bit more faith in human decency. (Don't watch these if prone to election despair.)

(Actually definelty watch this one; the blonde is hy-fucking-sterical. Watch her devolve.)

This one is GOLDEN, girl! (P.S. I heart Craig.)

A momentary lapse of the normal idiocy (of course, I won't mention that McCain thinks the opposite of Muslim is a decent man, but hey, he was trying, sort of):

BOO BOO?????

Please stick with me while I scrapbook the election.

When I first started reading blogs, this is what they mostly were. Collections of others' articles and writings; sometimes with commentary, sometimes not. But now blogs tend to be mostly original content. And mine has mostly been a personal journal of sorts. But, at least until the election is over, there are going to be many more posts like this.

So bear with me. I need to collect it all for "posterity," and if you happen to learn something, all that much better. (I'm a "collector" as you probably know by now. A reincarnation of someone who lived the depression, for sure. If I were a spinster, I'd be a hoarder. Since I'm a family chick, my men keep it--mostly--in check.)


Did you Google yourself 2001 style yet? I barely "web-existed." ("Web-existance" and it various forms copyright me, right now. Use it freely, though. I'll collect royalties once it gets outside of my circle.)

Barack Obama Set Your Voice As His Ringtone. (Weird, I've done the same for him. Must be love, love, love.)

However, John McCain thinks that's a bunch of hooey. (It's also mutual, Johnny.) (BTW, did ya see my t-shirt? I've gotten TONS of compliments on it.)

Do you not think this is one gorgeous fucking map??

Keep an eye on it here.

Uh-oh... photos surface of Obama's radical past
by jab Sat Oct 04, 2008 at 09:10:42 PM PDT
So you Democrats thought you could make this election about the issues?
Yes, the banking system is in a crisis imperiling the entire global economy. Sure, unemployment is rising and incomes are falling. Of course our health care system is the laughingstock of the world. Yes, we're bogged down in Iraq, the 9/11 masterminds remain at large and the Taliban are poised to regain control of Afghanistan. Sure, we run secret torture camps around the world and eavesdrop on U.S. citizens. Yes, global warming is wiping out species and changing the seasons and whipping up hurricanes and imperiling our coastlines. So I can see why you think you'd be able to get people to vote for changing parties in this upcoming election.
But you neglected to consider one thing: YOUR CANDIDATE PALS AROUND WITH TERRORISTS. [click here for photographic proof]

And for those of you with relatives who (AHEM!) believe this shit, here are a few things you can memorize, spout back and then have ignored, because that Palin, doggone it, just a Joe-Six-Pack like me, not no terr-uh-ist like that Barack Hus-SEIN Obama!

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a lying, stubby, saggy-jowled bastard of a mysoginist, chauvanist and, possibly, racist pig.

I know the four people who read this probably either read or were (AHEM! AGAIN!) forced to read the following, but they are my favorites from Sunday.

  1. Who You Callin’ a Maverick? By JOHN SCHWARTZ Published: October 4, 2008
    There’s that word again: maverick. In Thursday’s vice-presidential debate, Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, the Republican candidate, used it to describe herself and her running mate, Senator John McCain, no fewer than six times, at one point calling him “the consummate maverick.” [continued at above link]
  2. Pitbull Palin Mauls McCain By FRANK RICH Published: October 4, 2008
    SARAH PALIN’S post-Couric/Fey comeback at last week’s vice presidential debate was a turning point in the campaign. But if she “won,” as her indulgent partisans and press claque would have it, the loser was not Joe Biden. It was her running mate. With a month to go, the 2008 election is now an Obama-Palin race — about “the future,” as Palin kept saying Thursday night — and the only person who doesn’t seem to know it is Mr. Past, poor old John McCain. [continued at above link]
  3. Sarah’s Pompom Palaver By MAUREEN DOWD Published: October 4, 2008
    I had hoped I was finally done with acting as an interpreter for politicians whose relationship with the English language was tumultuous. [continued at above link]

Somehow I missed this one from Bob Herbert on Friday until tonight: Palin’s Alternate Universe or this one from Gail Collins of Friday: Talking in Points

Sarah Palin apparently thinks I can go to hell for one MORE reason, as if she didn't already have enough reasons.

And this one is just interesting to me and I want to see what anyone else thinks:

Reimbursements Raise Tax Issues for Palin

And, finally, if you've stuck with me this long and care about such things:

My rheumatologist appointment is Thursday, October 16th. I won't have the results of any of my myriad blood tests until then, so it's a pain waiting.

(My update to my online support group will catch you up iuf I haven't caught you up already:

"My rheumy said basically 'I have no clue' when I told her I wasn't any better, now what. So she ordered a bunch more blood tests. She mailed me the lab sheet; it is basically every tests I have ever had done, plus a few new ones, done over again. It'll be a pint of blood, lol."


"I did just notice that the lab slip say Dx code 710.8 which is
'Index entries containing 710.8:
Disease, diseased - see also Syndrome
collagen NEC 710.9
specified NEC 710.8Fibrosclerosis
familial multifocal NEC 710.8
multifocal (idiopathic) NEC 710.8Syndrome - see also Disease
fibrosclerosing 710.8System, systemic - see also condition
fibrosclerosing syndrome 710.8'

when she used to code me 710.9 , so I don't know what is up with that. One of the tests she is running is anti-tissue transglutaminase, which i just looked up and it's for celiac, which i was never tested for before, but i'll say right now if i have celiac: SCREW IT! I'll deal with the symptoms, 'cuz i ain't giving up gluten, period. she is running a lyme test again
and all o f the AI tests again: ana, anti-ds-dna, anti-smith, anti RNP, ss-a, ss-b, PLUS all of the normal stuff, thyroid stuff, urine stuff, etc.")

I'm tired and in pain (aching, sore and stiff) from whatever is and then I had an IBS flare-up which started Sunday and continued through when I was supposed to be enjoying a delicious meal in Manhattan last Monday night. And, then, it was gone for Tuesday's View-stravanga. And by the time I got home a cold or similar virus had me in its vice-like grip and continues to palm me a bit more gently now. But working is a bitch because my balance is TOTALLY off, and the respondent's probably all think I am an abused woman as my body is covered in, literally, dozens of bruises from running into every solid object I've crossed paths with this week. I know, it's a virus and I sound like a baby, but please remember I have a compromised immune system because of my previously diagnosed autoimmune illness, so what hits you, hits me harder, most likley, plus I already had this "THING," this "OTHER," going on in my body which is unknown yet. So there.

I'm getting a bit blue from the assholes I seem to be encountering this quarter at work and from not knowing what the fuck is wrong with me physically. But NOT the deep depression that would worry me. This is situational and understandalbe and manageable.

Things bought in NYC:

  1. Robert Piguet's Bandit (Hard to find in stores near me and a fascinating fragrance for my collection. I've been wearing it non-stop for a week--yes, even while passed out in bed! And it's a total foil to another serious favorite--and standby--of mine: Robert Piguet's Fracas)
  2. L'Occitane's Almond Shower Oil (Because it was there, and I'd wanted to try it. I'm "eh" on it. I thought it would be more moisturizing, but it smells good.)

On The View they gave us the DVD of Iron Man. The audience coming in after us got THIS for free:

Does my luck fucking suck or WHAT???

Thandie Newton is on Craig Ferguson's show right now and she just said her daughters are named Nico--after THE Nico--and Ripley--after Sigourney's alien whupping woman. How cool is that? Then Craig said he played drums for Nico! How cool is that? I love his show, BTW; he is seriously vying for "the list."

Okay, this post might be my "longest friggin' post EVER."

So goodnight for now.

And yes, the debate rocked. ;-)

McCain: Life isn't fair
Posted by Foon Rhee, deputy national political editor October 2, 2008 09:59 AM
Republican John McCain -- making the rounds of the morning news shows as polls show him falling behind Democratic rival Barack Obama and his running mate losing the confidence of voters -- sounded either bitter or fatalistic, or perhaps was trying some gallows humor. Asked why Obama has been rising as the Wall Street crisis has dominated attention, McCain said with a chuckle on Fox News Channel: "Because life isn’t fair.” [continued at link]
