Turkey Time

And I'm not talking about the Thanksgiving festivities that my American friends were engaged in this past week.


The fact that a reportedly uninvited socialite couple crashed the WH state dinner has caused numerous heads to explode at the normally sedate (ha!) dkos. Even Mr Blades has joined in on the "what if? ZOMG!!" action positing about how these nefarious crashers could have poisoned The Chosen One with ricin. I kid you not:

Mock all you like. Ricin is an easy poison ... (26+ / 0-) make, requiring only basic chemistry. And it's easy to apply. A syringe is best, but a scratch from, say, a specially prepared bracelet will do the trick. Of course, the Salahis didn't have any bracelets close at hand. So no problem, right?

Don't tell me what you believe. Tell me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.

Quick! Someone get the man some worry beads. And pass a law pronto banning all bracelets in the WH.

The conspiracy theories about how this all came about are fast and furiously being posted over there - much to the delight of those who are so tightly wrapped up in Hollywoodesque impending disaster porn that they can barely stop their hands from quivering long enough to post "100% correct!" "Boycott Bravo!" "She looks anorexic!". (Oh, the misogyny is out in full force. Trust me.) This, on a site where conspiracy theories are supposed to be a bannable offense because it's a reality-based community. (I know. I know.)

I mean, c'mon. The two of them almost started a nuclear war! when they weren't busy posing with the nation's poseurs.



Well. At least they don't have to waste time talking about and justifying that shitty, so-called health insurance reform sell-out bill today. On with the show!

Mcat Update

My cat, Shipley

New e-mail from Marisa.

She's ordered a new PC but it won't be delivered until December 8.

She's hanging in there - contemplating novenas for the withdrawal symptoms though.

I'm sure she won't mind me posting this bit:

I am on my neighbor's mac laptop... and had originally thought In could throw up a quick thread at Mcat... but using this is a nightmare.

Enjoy the scenery...

Marisa's on a forced internets vacation since her PC died last week. And while she's in the process of ordering a new one, some of her regulars are out in the cold since comments on her blog are now closed.

Might as well enjoy the scenery in the meantime...

Blogging the debauchery...wherever we can...
