Anything happen in the States today?


Huh. That’s funny. Here neither.

I missed it all. Just can’t stand it. Traffic was backed up for 100’s of miles into PA here with people clamoring to go to DC, even after the city was closed. One porta-potty for each 400 people there. A four hour wait for a Metro train. No where to stash the Obama foam finger and salt and pepper shakers you bought. Oh, the humanity…

Something was going on where some old fool thought he had to insult whites. And the ‘one’ smirked along.

I carefully avoided it as much as I could, which wasn’t much. I got fragments, even just checking for the weather.

I tuned out for a while over the Clintons, too. I believe in letting the other guys have their dance in the end-zone before the long knives come out. It’s just good sportsmanship.

Well, somehow it seems appropriate to point out that “American Idol” is on today….. (why I can’t -or won’t say).

On the other hand, if your motto is “screw sportsmanship” — Ace is having fun today.

I went for a ride through the Appalachian mountains and played Steely Dan and Shakatak as my musical unguent.

Oh, Gromulin! Don’t you know better than to use the B-word when The Weasel is around?

It only makes her hungry…

The ‘b’ word is a perfectly cromulent word.

Hey Uncle B, we watched Prince Caspian last night. Have you seen it? You did good and not at all vicious.

Topping the list of things I want to talk about today (it already being tommorrow in Blighty):

Stoatie, I think I can depend on you for the straight dope. Now that you’re ‘sconced snugly in Mother Albion’s boozum and all, can you confirm that the term “telephone sanitiser” really refers to someone who will come and clean your commode & related appurtenances? If so, do they also sanitise [sic] the actual telephones, or is that understood to be purely figurative terminology?

Gromulin: The deal is that now everyone gets a unicorn pony (with a horn made out of actual really-truly *rainbow!*) that poops almond-flavored M&Ms and is your friend forever. I can’t wait.

Sorry about the misspell, Stoaty; it’s probably the old Bettie/Betty Page circuitry misfiring.

Meh. Some celebrity had a party, or something. I was too busy recovering from the last snowstorm to pay much attention.

I think you got out just in time.

I can promise you, there is absolutely no resemblance between our very own Ol’ Stoaty and Betty Page.

It’s the fur, you see…

UB, I was thinking more along the lines of Kat Von-D, with a bit less ink involved…… 😉

I got all I wanted regarding the “festivities” yesterday from the internet (clicky the shameless self promotion for more details).

I stopped watching TV years ago. There simply is nothing worth watching.

Except House. I like House.

Stoaty’s going to roll over to 200K on the Hit-O-Lator soon.

OH… lovely news everyone. Weas and UB got out of Dodge just in time.

Obama Begins Process of Closing Gitmo

I managed to avoid seeing any of the coronation using the old brute force method of not watching any ‘news’ at all. I almost got caught out by watching the intro to Look North where, upon announcing the headlines, Crista Ackroyd said, ‘…and we’ll be seeing how people in Yorkshire reacted to the Obama inauguration.’

And despite not seeing any of it, I know that it was just one massive wankfest. All media, private or state-funded, television or print, left-wing or correct – all of it sickly, fawning adulation.

Ugh. I stood in front of a news agent’s today. Dozens of papers with his smiling face and variations on “America redeems herself today.”

I tell you, it was a dignified relief to look to the tabloids on the top row and see all those honest silicone tits staring down at me.

We’ve sure come a long way when silicone breasts are a welcome relief.

Picture the old (what was it? Virginia Slims?) You’ve Come a Looong Way Baby text floating above some bouncing bosoms.

The best thing about it: Ol’ Joe Biden as VP. I hope they give him lots of interview time. Can you imagine his interpretation of what’s happening in the Obama Whitehouse?

Delicious. Joe Biden, the real force behind Obama… Well at least according to Joe that is.

Joe Biden is the reason I’d take a bullet for Obama. That man is nuttier’n a squirrel’s anus.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
