Because It's My Blog so Listen Up!

Since we are not going to talk about how depressed I am about the election today due to some sad news yesterday. And since I won't be complaining about H, even though he does get me mad comments when I do, here are some things that my brain dead mind is pondering today.

This SBUX freak is happy. How else do I get over my candidate dropping out of the race? By downing caffiene and alcohol in one fail swoop! SBUX knows how to make Mummy happy.

I'm sending some bloggy love to Sarah today. Not that she needs it. She asks questions and gets 62 comments. 62 people decided to answer on what their favorite soup is. I get excited about 11 comments. A girl can dream though.

I've met Sarah and she's cute and funny and I loved her post about being in a garage band in high school. I wasn't in anything like that but I did consider myself deep and dark enough to wear black many days out of the week and scrawl insipidly bad poetry on my bedroom walls. I even painted a giant urn of wolfbane in my closet. Because you know, vampires usually come at you in a walk-in in the 'burbs and the only thing that will save you is an urn painted with watercolors.

And now for some Hollywood Schmollywood

Damn girl! Ain't your momma in town?

I had a cousin who used to go around looking like this. She reads tarot cards from her attic now for money and can be frquently seen sitting on the curb in front of her house with a half-full glass of cheap wine yelling at the crows, grass, and detritus at her feet. She now looks more like this.

True story.

Alright- here's something for you- H once didn't bother with using tape to wrap my Christmas presents. He just balled up the paper around my gifts and twisted the ends so that my pile of presents really looked more like a pile of trash.

Thanks to Izzy for fixing my header. Girl you iz magix.

I leave you with this- it still brings tears to my eyes.

"It's hard to speak out for change when you feel like your voice is not being heard."

Like Edwards himself- Do NOT give up!

I say this, in the words of Stephen Colbert, I'm putting you ON NOTICE Obama and Hillary. I'm watching you. You better pick up that torch and actually do something with it. We don't want words or placations. We want action and results. Stop yelling at us and grand-standing. Don't think a softer television ad is going to whoo me either. It won't. "We're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore!"

Crazy how relevant this can still seem today. Still. I'm not going to leave you alone either Internets. Who is coming with me?


  1. Thanks for this reminder in terms of your clip. So timely for today. And I'm sorry about your candidate. Honestly, Obama's got my vote, but Edwards is a good man, and he deserves to be heard, and for each person who drops out that limits the national conversation.

  2. 11 comments...dude I get excited over one...LOL

    BTW I am a Kahlua FREAK - is the SBUX kind any good? I look at it everytime I go to buy Kahula...and then I look at the size of the bottle and price tag vs. the Kahlua size and price tag...and well, I stick w/ Kahlua...I can't bring myself to stoop to the Kamora cheapness level yet.

  3. Aw shucks!

    And thanks for the love.

    I still can't believe that 62 people wanted to tell me what soup they liked best. I was just hungry.

  4. I'm with you! and I'm watching too...

  5. just wanted to tell you how much i am enjoying your blog. yours is one of the ones i really, really look forward to reading. and that says a lot.
