This is not...

... a triumphant return to blogging. Oh no. I just wanted to say a few things too lengthy for FB, which, by the way, has ruined the blogging lives of many.

1. A couple of weeks back, a Dead or Alive song came on the radio during which Curt and I pondered what ever became of the lead singer. He was sort of freaky sexy and a little androgynous in way that made us both kind of curious about him.

Here he was then:


Well, folks, brace yourselves. Here he is now:

I guess we can't really call him androgynous any more, can we? I wonder if he can still sing.

2. So, Republicans are going after President Obama for appearing not to respond to the BP sponsored oil disaster quickly enough. This is their version of payback for the criticism of the Bush administration for shopping for shoes during Hurricane Katrina. Well, let's be clear about something shall we? Hurricane Katrina was a devastating natural disaster for which the ONLY response was to begin mobilizing relief and rescue when you could see the damn thing bearing down on New Orleans on radar for several days prior to the actual event. The BP oil spill is a BUSINESS DISASTER that is quickly becoming an environmental and economic disaster. The correct response on the part of BP is first to tell the truth about the severity of the spill, second to be really, really, really contrite about having NO acceptable level of preparation for an event of this kind and third quit sending around your flunkies with offers of checks for $5000 to fishing boat owners if they sign away their right to sue. Now Republicans think the government should bear the responsibility for this business disaster? Are you fecking kidding me?

3. One word to the guy in the 5th floor men's room (the most disgusting place on earth next to the restroom at Godfather's Pizza in Golden Valley) who was making some serious grunting noise today: FIBER.

4. To the woman who stopped the salad bar line twice today to hold impromptu meeting scheduling sessions with your sycophantic interns who just don't know better: Next time, lady, you get whacked with the tongs. I mean it.

5. The amazing Mr. John is mid-stream on the cabin remodeling and I can barely contain my excitement. We're going up this weekend to paint the kitchen and fill up the new cabinets. Our first guest of honor this year will be.....
Ruthie! Hooray. (No making that face, Ruth.) Make your reservations now.

You so rock. Keep writing. We need people like you to beat the feck out of people like them.

I kinda liked that guy in the 80's.

OMG the Republicans have absolutely no leg to stand on. I saw the CEO for BP today saying this was "not BP's fault because the drilling rig didn't belong to them". That they'll even CONSIDER criticizing Obama on this makes me want to scream, then vomit.

Again with the salad bar ladies? You need to feckin RUN that salad bar.

I think you'll need to tie Ruthie's hands to her side as well. And if the words "know who you should do?" come out of her mouth quickly snap her with a rubber band. . . . or the salad tongs

WHY, WHY WHY oh, WHY?!!!! do people over do their lips? NOTHING screams plastic surgery addict like oversize lips!! damn.

oh, and republicans suck too. But the big lips- that REALLY SUCKS!!!

Kirelimel- the problem is that people make their uppper lips bigger than their lower lips. This doesn't happen in nature. So why would anyone think this is natural?? I don't understand!!

kirelimel said...

write something new so those damn lips move on down the line...I hate those lips with all the loathing I usually reserve for the Republican Party.
