Stayed up way too late last night. But laundry HAD to be done.
Although...some of those pairs of tighty-whiteys probably COULD have made it downstairs by themselves.
They'd just need some help carrying the detergent.
Was listening briefly to Tom Leykis yesterday. He was taking about an article that appeared in the LA Times about the new version of the iPhone - specifically, the following comment in the article (spelling and typing errors intact):
So, when my cellphone broke last week, I waited - patiently, G*D**IT! - wishing & hoping that Apple in it's infinite goodness & wisdom would just open up a stylus option when they made the big announcement of 2.0 & 3G today. NO LUCK! :(
Considering ergonomics & user testing studies indicated men & women use their fingers/nails differently Over TEN YEARS AGO, why does Apple persist in this misogyny?
My question: did she TRY OUT the thing before she bought, to see if it worked with her nails? Or, as Leykis suggested, did she simply get it because it was the newest/hottest "accessory"?
And because Apple didn't design it with fingernails in mind, the company is misogynistic?
OPEC has declared they won't lower oil prices.
But...but...I thought President Bush controlled everything!
Actually, I haven't heard "it's Bush's fault" much since the Democrats took control of the House and Senate back in 2006. Coincidence?
The Head Start program has made over $400 million in "improper" payments since 2005. So naturally, the proposal is for it to get $7.1 Billion for fiscal 2009.
Hey, it's only taxpayer's money, right?
And this is who we want to handle health care?
Over here are some ways to get by when you can't afford something.
Buy lots of duct tape, gang.
Brin told me about this yesterday.
The Sports section of Fark.com had this headline over this story:
We still plan on going to the game on 9/11. I can't think of anything more patriotic - or a better way to say "fuck you" to bin Laden - than to eat a hot dog at a baseball game.
And, just to fuck with their culture even more, I'll eat with my left hand.
Okay. Going to get some lunch, and then going to the store. We're on summer hours, so I can't shop at my favorite store after work for a few months.
Be seeing you.
