Business as usual, then: “It’s a good example of why the most appropriate name for what the president is planning is neither ‘surge’ nor even ‘escalation’ but rather ‘punt’ — a strategically meaningless increase in troops meant to allow the president to avoid dealing with the failure of his policy and lay the ground work … Continue reading Passing the buck
The weather was pretty shit overnight (I think I was woken by the rain and wind hitting the window) and coming into work this morning. I was actually a little nervous about driving, with all the warnings on the radio about high winds (lucky for me my car presents a very small surface area… hehe). … Continue reading I almost wish I could stream sound live over my website
I’m linking to this puff piece about a young computer nerd not because of the subject matter (customising computer cases), but because his shop is near WANKER’S CORNER, Oregon. Bwahahahahahahahaha!
This is going to be so uncool of me (and I’m not some anti-fashion hipster wannabe), but I have to say that the iPhone is not as attractive as the MOTOROKR E6 (and I am seriously feeling gadget lust). I’m still happy with my StrTrk, although I do love looking at new phones.

I got the They Walk Among Us joke list on e-mail, and wanted to share my favourite: My friends and I were on a beer run and noticed that the cases were discounted 10%. Since it was a big party, we bought 2 cases. The cashier multiplied 2 times 10% and gave us a 20% … Continue reading They Walk Among Us
Add your ideas to the pool if you want future versions of WordPress to improve your user experience (mine’s about giving me an option to download without the WYSIWYG editor since I’ve never used it), or complain in the kvetch section.
Haha. Here’s the real story. Colombian Ana Julia Torres rescued this lion from a circus and nursed him back to health at her animal shelter. I find those who mistreat animals quite baffling. I can’t imagine what psychopathy motivates someone to inflict pain and suffering on another creature, and to gain pleasure from it! And … Continue reading Forbidden love
I only heard this word being used when I was in Scotland with Neil and he was talking to his mum. I’d never, ever heard him use it before. Bur I have heard him use it plenty of times since. “Mind when we went to eat fish and chips and the shop exploded from blocked … Continue reading Scottish slang of the day — MIND
