Two Separate Thank-Yous


I hope this means that both Rosie and The View can now slide back into their respective obscurity, and nevermore will I be subjected to news reports of "what ridiculous, and occasionally physics-defying, twaddle Rosie held forth on today" or, really, any other "who said what on The View." (Honestly. Women. I swear...) O Bliss! Nevermore!

Two--and significantly more important:

Thank you, on this Memorial Day, to the thousands upon thousands of brave men and women who have given life, limb, and sacred honor to defend this beloved country. "Thank you" is too small and insignificant, but it is the best we can do in honor of your heroism and sacrifice, of what you have done for us and for peoples around the world, and for what you continue to do.

Happiness is...

Sticky kisses. (The hardworking Little Bro will appreciate this.)

Real Men Do Not...An Occasional Series, Parts 1 & 2

Real men do not...

1. Wear fuchsia.

2. Tattoo enormous angel wings across their backs. (And if, for some wholly inexplicable reason, they have such a tattoo, they ought not jog by me, shirtless. Twice.)

Ha! (ish)

Well, it may be entirely possible to think one has a quasi-decent understanding of assorted international agreements--TRIPs! Paris Convention! Berne Convention! Patent Cooperation Treaty!--or to think one does, and yet to know that it is equally possible to have answered every single exam question incorrectly.* However, I did correctly answer that Canada is the 2nd largest country in terms of area, unlike a gaggle of TV anchors. Ha! Small victories.

*Actually, I think I got one right. The other 19, not so sure. Fortunately, most everyone else was probably in the same boat.

Observations over Ice Cream

I'm not persuaded that Segolene Royal's economics are much more than wishful thinking (I grant you I'm watching a translation, y no hablo el frances), but I am persuaded of her excellent taste in blouses.

Difficult Questions

Do I love Trip Tucker III Enterprise enough to purchase Seasons 1-4?

Update: Ayuh, apparently I do!

Hereby and Forthwith Concluded

Perhaps I should not be allowed to chose my own topics, for I shall inevitably have chosen something much better suited for a dissertation, without realizing it upfront.
