If you don't love Betty White...

you must not have a sense of humor.

The best moment is at 1:06. I cannot stop laughing.

1. How are you gonna be on FaceHunter AND The Sartorialist on the same day? That's crazy talk.

2. I now drive by a homeless shelter every morning. Old homeless people are perhaps the saddest thing ever. It's disgusting how the elderly are neglected.

I fuckin' hate how whenever I declare embargo, my email is suddenly deluged with messages about crazy crazy sales. Why, God? WHY?!

I was supposed to finish up a report today.

That did not happen.

We'll see how it goes tomorrow.

Get a Room.

While walking towards the local cathedral* for Ash Wednesday mass, there is a throng of people exiting from the just completed service. The sidewalk was completely full of be-ashed and soon-to-be-ashed Catholics. Why was one person walking along and powdering over her ashes at the same time? Is she ashamed of being Catholic? I'm not particularly proud of being Catholic, but I'm not ashamed of it. It's just what I am. If she's not ashamed of her ashes, shouldn't she at least be ashamed of that shame and powder over them in private? Especially when you are surrounded by people coming from/on their way to mass. It just seems wrong.

* Yes, local cathedral.

I Love Words. Don't You Love Words?

Shenanigans is a delightful word. It elicits such joy upon exiting my mouth. (I feel like I should make a dirty joke right now, but it gets more convoluted the more I think about it.) Also, convoluted is a good word. Not as delightful as shenanigans, but it has its merits. There are limitations to the delight of shenanigans though. Anyone under the age of 30 can use it to much laughter. The younger the user, the more amusing it is. Anyone who has been ravaged by time can also use it to much delight. I'd rather hear a crazy 90 year old cat lady say it than a well-coiffed/clad 55 year old. Being classy/sophisticated just detracts from the joy. Age and social standing are not the only factors affecting it, as levels of authority have a tremendous effect. For example, Bush is a crazy motherfucker and wants to blow up the world(I mean that figuratively, I have nothing against Barbara Bush). Clinton just wants to get blown. See the difference?



The use of the delight* that is shenanigans should not be used by all. But if you are one of the lucky few able to use it in such a way, have at it.

*Also, delight itself is delightful. So light. So airy. It just rolls off the tongue like a delightfully dirty joke.

I'm kinda feelin' this square photo thing. Also, I should do a better crop of this.

I'm really looking forward to re-reading A Wrinkle in Time, which is included in my latest Bookswim shipment. I remember really enjoying it when I was a kid but really have no recollection of why. I must resist the urge to check wikipedia for a plot summary.

Boogie woogie woogie woogie.
