This week is turning out to be more fun than a barrel of crippled monkeys being fed into a paper shredder to the tune of “Love Stinks” by the J. Geils Band

Great. About an hour ago I whacked my hand on the corner of the bookcase as I was walking past. I heard an audible “snap” and then this blazing pain spread all down my fingers. I applied ice, of course, but there is a very tender spot on my hand that seems to penetrate all […]

Secrets!

Wednesday, November 30th, 2005

The LA Times is on it! They’ve got the scoop on a shocking revelation: the Pentagon is paying Iraqi newspapers to spread propaganda! Noooo—-! Form a torch-bearing mob and head to Washington, now!
Oh– wait… this was publicly announced by the Defense Department Back in June. Never mind.
I love secrets!

Uh oh! This will have to wait until later today. Watch this space. For my confessions! Muahahahahaha!
Okay, here I am! I confess:
To talking in the most absurd, sickening baby talk to my cat. Yeah, she gets the same look on her face you have.
I don’t understand people who can’t stand being alone. I just don’t […]

Setback

Tuesday, November 29th, 2005

Well guess what, they sold out of the fucking laptops the minute I placed my order. So now I am back to square one, except I am now on hold with my bank to make sure the money hasn’t been taking out of my account.
Obviously I am meant to be tied to a freaking desktop […]

What I want for Christmas

Monday, November 28th, 2005

You know, I really just want one thing for Christmas. It’s this:
I want people to please please please PLEASE stop giving Ted “Human Toilet Bowl Ring” Rall any more attention.
Please?
PLEASE???
Is that too much to ask?
(And no, there are no links. NOT LINKING is part of the de-Rallification therapy. It’s worth it, believe me. […]

Worst restaurant experience ever

Monday, November 28th, 2005

If I had been at that restaurant, I don’t think I could have prevented my Inner Crazy Old Spinster Lady from standing up and yelling “Wow, you think your enema was bad? Let me tell you about my last gynecological exam! Let’s just say I regretted not ever having gotten into vaginal fisting!”
Two can play […]

Shopping mania

Monday, November 28th, 2005

“Hey, guess what?” I am informed by a coworker as I came in. “Today is supposed to be the busiest online shopping day of the season!”
SHIT.
Let’s just say my efforts to order a refurbished IBM laptop was a fiasco and I will count myself lucky if I get this even though they took my money […]

Achoo

Sunday, November 27th, 2005

The mysterious itchiness of the nasal passages that is not assuaged by antihistamines… the constant sneezing… the beginning of annoying weepy eye… the tickle in the throat that is the presage to hot scratchiness…
Augghhhh!! I’m getting a cold!
Update: the exhaustion has set in. I walked to the store for some supplies, […]

Jikes! - Fahrenheit 1861

Tim Blair sounding

Sunday, November 27th, 2005

The wandering Australian has been detected in Los Angeles, being interviewed on the radio:
The classic was when the interviewer asked Mr Blair what he thought of his understanding that if the yanks didn’t have the 2 term rule, Clinton rather than Bush would have still been President and 9/11 would thus not have happened. […]
