It Ain't Easy Being Green

I haven't posted in a while. I was violently sick yesterday, but I'm better now. Otherwise, not much has been going on. At least I feel better than this guy. (Not safe for work)

Wack Fol the Laddie-o!

A hearty Erin go bragh and Sláinte to you all on this St. Patrick's Day.

However, do you all know of the lesser known holiday that also falls on this fine day? Do you? I suppose not, or it wouldn't be lesser known. In any case, today is Air-Kraken Day, which is explained in that link, because I have no clue what it's all about. I do know that this picture is freakin' sweet.

London is so fucked.

By the Moon and the Stars in the Sky

Just a quick question for my blogger friends with more skill at digging these things up - Anyone think they can find when Newt Gingrich repeatedly said that he had, under oath, never had an affair? Ian Punnit mentioned it this morning. He thought it was on "Meet the Press" a while back, or one of the morning shows, probably within the last 2 years. Gingrich was asked if he was having an affair during the Clinton scandal, and Gingrich said that he had answered the question in a deposition during his divorce - under oath - and the answer was no.

Which would mean that he lied about an affair under oath.

Anyone have the time and inclination?

It Wasn't the Drinkin', This Man Died of Thirst

I caught Gaelic Storm at the Fine Line on Saturday. I ended up going alone because someone didn't call me back. It was still fun. They did 2 sets and pulled out all of the instruments. I've always been impressed that people who are so drunk they can't remember the names of songs are still able to play brilliantly.

Jeff discusses the dangers of nightclubs (or something like that) -
Not nightclubs! Why, do you know what happens in night clubs? No? Well, either you’re closing your eyes to a situation you do now wish to acknowledge or you are not aware of the caliber of disaster indicated by the presence of a night club in your community. They’re filled with libertine men and scarlet women! And rag-time, shameless music that’ll grab your son-and your daughter–with the arms of a jungle animal instinct! Mass-staria! Friends, the idle brain is the devil’s playground!

We’ve got trouble! Right here in River City! With a capital “T” and that rhymes with “D” and that stands for Dance!
It's actually about some movement where parents and little kids go dancing. Which is why it's a good thing I don't have kids, because I would be requesting "What's Your Fantasy" by Ludacris, children be damned.

At the risk of angering my fellow liberals, this should fail. There's a reason citizens are the ones who get to vote. We have the most to lose. Not to mention that those who have become citizens went through a lot to do so, and letting non-citizens vote diminishes their work. I still think more people should be allowed to become citizens. Note that my dislike for Phyllis Kahn has nothing to do with my opposition to her bill, but it's proposals like this that lead to my dislike of Phyllis Kahn.

I have a job because idiots exist. I don't worry about losing my job anytime soon.

Howl at the Moon

OK. So I'm ready to accept that all werewolves reside in Wisconsin. Here's another one.

A former inmate told police that he was a werewolf and could change shapes after he was arrested for breaking into a woman's apartment.

This sounds like your basic case of supernatural-status discrimination to me. Although I think there was a full moon this weekend. His transmogrification should have settled the matter right there. Unless the lunar eclipse somehow interfered. Or the jail bars are made of silver (which they should be, what with the number of werewolves in Wisconsin).

I think the lycanthropic community should be outraged by this arrest. The marijuana was obviously medicinal. I assume it helps keep him from changing. This is an outrage, and all good thinking people should be crying for this man/beast's release.

Either that, or we should all just stay the fuck out of Wisconsin.

The Affiliate would like me to inform everyone that she was accepted into Hamline University in the MBA program. Or something like that. The less I know, the better I say. She's getting a Master's degree. Let's keep it at that. Way to go, me gal!

Finally; Moose 1, Helicoptor 0.

PETA is probably sipping a non-fat soy decaf latte for that Alces alces. That, by the way, would trample any one of them without a second thought.
