Izma Headache

It made me lol. Then my back went out.

On the divide between GenX and iGen:

doctoreon: 36 with a MySpace page? Check.

Shitty layout on said page? Check.

No good reason to have said page at her age (e.g., being Madonna)? Check.

numbedtoe: It's always eye rolling when you damn youngsters think those of us over a certain age need to log the hell off. Get off my Internet, I was here first!

Sturulson Sues Tolkein
REYKJAVIK (AP) -- Snorri Sturluson, a 12th-century Icelandic poet,
today filed suit against J.R.R. Tolkien for plagiarizing dwarf-names
from his work, The Prose Edda.

Mr. Sturluson, who emerged from a volcano in western Iceland where
he has been hibernating for 800 years, said that he had only recently
learned of the similarities between his work and Prof. Tolkien's The
Hobbit.

Context is suing you for using the same words.

On this, my last night at home, I was reminded that we have Skinemax Cinemax, as I caught a glimpse of the title Passion Cove 2: Deep Desires on the guide. So I scurried upstairs to the master bedroom and locked the door to catch a little soft porn on the same big screen TV on which I had surreptitiously watched soft porn late at night as a teenager. I had just watched Chuck and Heroes with my little sister earlier, so I was expecting to have to bring up the guide to find the right channel.

I was a little surprised when the TV turned on and showed me a naked woman. Because it was already tuned to the channel.

And the only possible person who would have been watching the TV in my parent's bedroom after us was my dad.

Aaaaaaaah.

A letter to Sarah Palin

liz_marcs  has written an amusing note to Gov Palin regarding her grasp of history:


Dear Governor Palin,

There were many, many things about your performance last night that caused FLAMES, FLAMES ON THE SIDE OF MY FACE me further discomfort[...]

[I confess that I squeed like a fangirl when Sen. Biden then proceeded to hit you on the nose with a rolled up copy of said U.S. Constitution while stapling a Dick Cheney mask to your face. That was the Bestest Part.]


Short, but way worth the read.

jakflak, on parenting differences:

A small difference between mommy and daddy discovered in our house today:

When a small glob of chocolate is found on the baby's head after mommy enjoys a treat:

Mommy: You can't let the dog lick that off because YOU DON'T LET THE DOG LICK THE BABY!!
Daddy: You can't let the dog lick that off the baby because chocolate is bad for the dog.
