I Nicknamed Her "Stampy"

Apparently VP Cheney admitted Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. I imagine the right-wing blogosphere will now start calling him a traitor or a dirty liberal or French.

I attended the MOB Get-Together at Keegan's last night. I had some fun, at least until the conversation turned to Rush. I'm not the type who is good at meeting new people, so I have a hard time at large gatherings where I know nobody. Luckily Rew and Smartie were there to keep me company. Also, I met LearnedFoot, who is as funny as his writing would imply (even if he did bring up Rush).

Today was even cooler. I got to ride an elephant!!!!!!

That's the Affiliate and me on the elephant.

My love of elephants is evident to anyone who has seen the dozen or so elephant statues around my house. This was my first ride on an elephant, and it was awesome, even if it only lasted 8 minutes.

We were at the Renaissance Festival, which is as geeky as it sounds. But we had a good time. Even Puke & Snot were funnier than I remember them being. And I ate a giant turkey leg.

Here's the Affiliate and her friend with their newly braided hair.

So that was my weekend. Hope yours went well.

Your Hannibal leader.

Dear Ken, I hope the Affiliate realises that you are totally trading up by snagging her, and is smart enough not to be jealous of me. Your friend, Christy

Thanks for the vote of confidence, C.

She'll get over it.
