I have mailed away my laptop in a FedEx box that cost me $10.00. Hearing the term "hard drive crash" from IT Support has made me a little bit depressed.
Did you know that if you have a 3 month old Blackberry and the contacts inside the USB port are not perfectly aligned that is classified as "physical damage" which VOIDS THE WARRANTY and you will have to buy a new phone?
Did you know that you can stick a pushpin into the USB port on your Blackberry and wiggle it around until the contacts are perfectly aligned rendering your phone chargeable again? Screw you, AT&T.
My morning glory seeds have emerged from the soil in the deck pot where I planted them last Friday. They are little white albino seedlings because Deirdre has been weeping cool tears in NJ every single day that they have been alive.
The RHoNY season finale last night was a big fizzle. The only thing that was good about it was when Ramona was congratulating someone and she said "Ka-dooze" to them.
These chicken events are designed to "capture the beauty, joy,
intelligence, dignity and zany exuberance of chickens," according to
UPC (United Poultry concerns).
During the end of last year's political season, I spent some time in California and was sunbjected to an almost non-stop barrage of state proposition advertising. One of the most frequent TV ads was about providing caged chickens with more square inches. So, California: pioneers, silicon, chicken respecters.
2. CHICKEN POEM I have learned a lot from the internet, including what is the favorite college-era poem of B2. It's called Janet Waking and the one of the main characters is a pet chicken. Alas, her Chucky had died. I think about that poem a lot.
3. CHICKEN POEM, part 2 This is one of the few math jokes I actually get. I like to think it's a tribute of love to a chicken, but judging from the shocked look on her face, it's more likely a mash note.
If yesterday's view of MO's bare foot was not enough to feed your foot obsession, word comes today about "the dreaded “shrimp cocktail effect
in which toes hang over the front of the sandals."
I have in my life had sandals that might have been a bit too small and the only thing that hung over was my heel in the back. Who has toes like that? I am behind on the shrimp/toe connection A pervy online friend informs me that fetishistic toe-sucking is called shrimping. Urban Dictionary is filled with shrimp/toe references, among other shrimp references I didn't know about. I 'm sorry I started this. BONUS INFORMATION:Oprah has 6 toes.
Fashion Icon and Busy Mom Michelle Obama joined a group of other political wives to pose for photos at a local food bank yesterday. Displaying once again her playful (translation: like a kindergartner who dressed herself) fashion sense, she went casual and wore her customary too-small sweater, hip-enhancing flood pants and a pair of sneakers that cost $540.00. To work at a food bank.
Are we still doing the Jackie O comparisons? Is that still a thing? Picture Jackie O in those.
The overlooked and underrated Jill Biden was there, too. There must be some kind of deal going on there where Dr. Jill is not allowed to outshine MO. Vivian Vance was contractually obliged to maintain her weight at a minimum of 20 pounds over Lucille Ball's to make Lucy look that much better. I have a feeling that a similar agreement must be going on here - Jill is obliged to hide her classic, tasteful and flattering fashion sense whenever MO is around. This time, though, it leaked out.
At first I felt a little sad that Jill's silver ballet flats made her delicate feet look a bit canoe-ish ... until I saw this shot of them standing near each other.
Man feet! If you didn't already know that was MO standing there, wouldn't you think that might be her brother?
Nope! His feet seem to be smaller than hers. Same big mouth, though.
UPDATE: The internet is abuzz with fascination over MO's shoes - and rightly so. Let's start a compendium:
WIZBANG "Remember when Michelle Obama poo poo'd the Bush stimulus of $600 as
nothing asking what could you buy with that, a pair of earrings?"link
BASEBALL CRANK - "Somehow, no matter what the state of the U.S. economy, the Michelle
Obamas in and around the government will always manage to get their
fancy French sneakers. I don't begrudge them that - but I do wish they
acted as if they felt the same way about the rest of us."link
JAMMIEWEARINGFOOL - Wasn't her husband just saying something about buying American?link
BRUTALLY HONEST -"They're shoes," the First Lady's reps sniffed when curious reporters inquired about the fancy footwear." Yea... just shoes... worn by everyday people every.... er... day... while helping the poor. link
