Who the fuck came up with this stupid phrase? [Oct. 2nd, 2008|07:15 am]

"Look-back review". Been hearing this a lot lately. What the fuck other type of review is there?

there's a part of me that actually perversely thinks it would be hilarious to see McCain/Palin elected and McCain die in office. I mean, the sheer incompetence of a Sarah Palin presidency trying to play tough to Iran or Russia or whoever the enemy du jour is at that point. (Come on, wouldn't you love to see her try to take on Putin? Wouldn't you? He'd have her for breakfast.)

It would be a disaster for the American people - or at least, those below the Country Club class - but it could be a good thing for the world in the long run by diminishing American hegemony. And it would have to diminish American hegemony, because it would be totally impossible for anyone else to take the US seriously!

Please don't bookmark this page and come back to remind me about it when she's fired all the federal judges, replaced them with graduates of Bob Jones University Law School and sold the Rocky Mountains to Exxon.

There is a film crew in the courtyard behind my apartment. And a person walking around dressed as a star.

I am intrigued.

I've just heard that they're doing a remake of the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

This is a bad idea on so many levels, I don't know where to begin.

A couple I fixed up have just got engaged.

ETA: It must be because I caught the bouquet at a friend's wedding a couple months ago. Not exactly how that's supposed to work, but better than nothing, I suppose.

Take the bottle of wine off the bookshelf before you try to move it.



Disaster averted. But barely.

Is this the ultimate in consumer gullability? [Aug. 8th, 2008|11:27 am]

On the ketchup shelf in the supermarket. A 1.35 kilogram bottle costs €3.60. A 1.2 kilogram bottle costs €3.88. They're both your basic Heinz variety. Both come in an easy-squeezy plastic bottle. So why is the smaller one more expensive? Because the bottle is sold upside down - cap at the bottom. I bought one of the cheaper ones and put it in my refrigerator upside down and it seems to work just fine. What am I missing?

Well my parents went home yesterday. It was very sad. I'd really got used to them being around. I have the most amazing parents in the world. But I'll see them for Christmas anyway (by which time they'll be grandparents! Yay!).

I'm not sure I mentioned this but they were originally planning to go home at the end of July. Then my mother had this bright idea that, since they're retired and can stay however long they like, they should stay an extra week and help me paint my apartment. Seriously this was my mother's idea. She loves painting. So I said ok. So now I have a freshly painted living room and kitchen. We didn't have time to do anything else because that took so bloody long. But it looks wonderful. Here's the door to the broom closet - we did the whole kitchen/living room in that green for the walls and ceiling and that blue for the trim. It looks fabulous.



But damn, I miss my parents.
