I feel good about giving money to the ACLU.

mish-mash muddle

Hi! I’m here! Been busy this past week, what with work craziness and friend awesomeness. So a quick catch-up of my recent activities and ponderings.

So. Bullet points, methinks? Why yes please.

  • On Kanye: I’m with O’Bama here, what a jackass. I don’t care if you’re drunk, I don’t care if you haven’t recovered from your mother’s death (I mean I do, but dude take some time off, nobody will blame you, and stop using it as an excuse) but you don’t have to ruin the girl’s moment. On the other hand and also, I’m tired of hearing about it. I’ve enjoyed its week of press, but enough is enough. Move on.
  • On Joe Wilson: Okay so maybe I’m an insensitive bigot, but could everyone just chill the fuck out, please? Telling the President he’s a liar is okay. No, really. I personally think O’Bama is the shit, but if we can’t call our politicians out when we think they’re wrong, what’s the point? Sure it’s disrespectful. Wilson didn’t mean to be respectful. He doesn’t like our President. And that’s okay.
    Of course, if he doesn’t like our president because our President is black, as some people are saying, that is not okay. I haven’t really looked into Wilson’s past—he’s a Republican from South Carolina, but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything. But even if he were a card-carrying member of the KKK, those two words—”you lie”—don’t reflect that at all. They’re just rude and ill-timed and my god people get over it already.
    Devil’s Advocate, that’s me.
  • 9: Don’t go see this movie. It does not live up to expectations at ALL, and I was really expecting it to be good. It’s really really pretty, and if you have to see it, definitely see it on the big screen, but ugh plot wtf. It’s taken Harry Potter and Star Wars elements and squished them all together with the apocolypse. Things are not explained, things are weird, dialogue is blah, it’s just a total ugh.
  • One of my bffs just moved to New York City and I am sooooo jealous of him. Haha I just called him a bff. I hope he properly appreciates it.
  • I would not make a good politician’s wife, because I don’t know how to tie a tie. (Currently watching Brotherhood.)
  • roadhouse
    RIP, babe. I’ll miss you.

President Who?

Not gonna lie. Aretha Franklin’s hat was pretty much the best part of my day.

I mean, President Obama is cool too, but ZOMG THAT HAT. I cannot begin to describe how much chaos I would cause for the chance of a hat like that. Not that I could pull it off. But damn I would try.

Joe the Plumber will not go away

Dude. You asked a guy a question. Another guy totally used you–he could have used anybody–to make a political point. What makes you think anyone cares what you have to say about “American values?

And how the hell are you going to have a book ready for release on December 1st?

My favorite part of this story is that he’s signed on with a publisher that has published exactly ONE other book, a novel–and the author of that book is “co-writing” Joe’s book. And it’s being released on December 1st. Which is like, a week and a half from now.

Like, wtf. Seriously, Joe. WTF.

First of all, there’s no way it’s going to be good that quickly, and by good I mean both well-written and/or bound with something stronger than chewing gum.

Second of all, I don’t understand how you chose this publisher. Their website is practically non-existent, and what exists is badly written. (like, not unintelligible, but no competent editor would have let that novel’s blurb anywhere near the public.) Random House and whoever may be big companies, they may be part of some evil empire, but they at least have editors, and marketing departments, and money.

Third of all–do you actually have anything to say? And why should I care whether you answer yes or no?

Okay, I admit, I loved Joe the Plumber during that third debate, because McCain just used him ridiculously. But now I want him to go away. WTF.

help me, wolf blitzer kenobi. you’re my only hope.

I realize I’m late to this party, but I’ve been busy and sleep-deprived the past few days. Just pretend like I published this post on Wednesday morning. Thank you.

Wow.

Seriously.

Just wow.

This may have been the greatest election in the history of the United States of America, and for one reason and one reason only:

HOLOGRAMS!!

cnnhologram

CNN decided this election wasn’t exciting enough with only That One to hold our interest, so they added holograms. Also a weird 3D Capitol with shiny bits that appeared on that table behind the blond chick; the technology resembled that used in every sci-fi movie to plan an attack, such as the final meeting of the Rebellion leaders in Return of the Jedi, when the diagram of the Death Star floats above the table. (But shinier.) Basically, someone at CNN watched the Star Wars trilogy back-to-back-to-back-to-back and then had to figure out a way to classify it as a legitimate business expense.

So we got holograms.

Also, at the bottom of the screen, we got random little factoids like, “If Obama wins, Joe Biden will be the first Vice-President from Delaware.”

Well, gee. Too bad that wasn’t talked about more during the campaign, that’s IMPORTANT.

Really I’m still too much in shock to fully process what happened in our country Tuesday night. I am shocked and awed. So you get my ill attempts at humor instead. It’s a defense mechanism.

Just. Wow.
