First, on the personal front, I spent Friday and Saturday morning in the hot and windy weather doing some more garage sale-ing (and thinking about the fact that I have to hyphenate sale-ing because it looks horrible any other way). As usual, it was a quest to clothe children on the cheap. I did manage to find some elliptical thing so I could begin shedding my belly (think the Mini-Me version of Fat Bastard's belly). And I only spent $2o. Of course this is a concession since I can't very well ride my bike 20 miles with the younglings about and no one to watch them.
And with some time on the machine, I can say I'm most decidedly out of shape.
The village of New Bremen has pissed me off by shutting off power on Monday from 9-12. I usually blog and listen to Dee at this time (10AM, EDT, Mondays). Now I do also happen to have the day off, so that has both plusesses and minusesses.
And I do have the plans for podcasts in the works. It's an idea I've been considering for a while, and I had a breakthrough in ideas that make it possible for me to do it now. More to come on this when I get the next part tested (recording a convo with my buddy in New Zealand (if he ever shows his ass up online on a Sunday afternoon (my Saturday night)) without significant suckage).
Also, let me give a quick nod to CB for the link to a fun article on Obama: 100 Days, 100 Mistakes. It's good for debate, if nothing else. And I'll get it all read eventually. And most importantly, it might be the item I use to come up with my 100 days of suckitude post.
(Oh come on, libs! The word 'suckitude' makes it at least funny, even if you're cringing.
And now, as I contemplate turning on the radio to talk and the TV to Fox News for the preponderance of blond infobabes (if it looks interesting, I'll switch over) due to the fact I'm too cheap to buy porn and too lazy to click for it:
Ok, I know most of you are now saying "Who the Hell is is Kristen Dalton. Well, as I had to look her ass up, I probably should share. She won the title of Miss North Carolina, then went on to win the title of Miss USA.
I really don't give a shit. But as non-existent as the beauty contest winners are on the American consciousness are, it's worse for this poor, blond, likely failure for a Fox News infobabe slot (it's QVC for you, sweetie (seriously, she was on 4-8 on Saturday)), thanks to two people who sucked her 15 minutes out of existence: Miss California (and future Fox News infobabe) Carrie Prejean, and judge/blogger/gay joke/douchebag Perez Hilton.
You know the "scandal" already. Peckerface Hilton asks sweet Carrie the gay marriage question (with the expectation of a perfectly vacuous non-answer). And she manages a mostly vacuous non-answer, except at the end, she mentions that she believes in traditional marriage (1 man, 1 woman,
So now #2 Carrie is the next "conservative" hero, right after the overhype that was Joe the Plumber (who probably would have made a better candidate in 2008 than the insipid camera whore McCain). And we're going to have to put up with liberal hacks looking for her nude pics (and me Googling them shortly thereafter).
As for Perez Hilton, he still gives perennial gay jokes like Barney Frank a bad name. And that's saying something.
So for making me have to search for your name because you got upstaged by the girl you beat and the dildo that scolded her, you get a nudge from someone who wants to see you on the Fox News Channel. With the sound turned down. Boioioioioing!
