beyond belief

How do I join this club? I'd love to get fired and be rewarded for abject failure with a twenty million-dollar cash-out.

close call

The middle of last week I noticed that the Squirt seemed to be winking at me. The next day, her left eye was sealed shut, and by the end of that day was noticeably swollen. I tried to coax her to me with roast chicken to see if I could get a better look at it and determine what the problem was, but her usual timidity made that a waste of time. The next day it was even worse, so I realized I had to do something to try to deal with the problem. I started putting some kibble in her bowl, then sprinkling it with a layer of pink Amoxicillin powder, and then covering it up with another thin layer of kibble. My ploy actually worked, and by Saturday a 1/4" gash above her left eye had opened up and was oozing infected fluids. This morning, it is nicely scabbed, her eye is open and clean, she's her usual spunky little self, and I have a new trick at treating recalcitrant but sick kitties.

Being a daddy is exhausting.

bet fast, this won't take long

When will Sarah Palin show up on the television all teary-eyed and offended by Barack Obama's unfortunate and meaningless little "special olympics" mot mal?

Listen to the sentence that starts at 1:10 for the most blatant lie ever spoken by a professional, remorseless liar. His parents must be proud.

aww, shucks

There was a big rally on Wall Street today, stocks rose by six percent, or nearly three-hundred and eighty points, which was the single biggest gain in four months.

The optimism and excitement in the market was easy to understand.

It's my birthday.

the evil of banality

It seems that a lot of people feel they can judge the goodness of another person by looking at them. That process almost always yields condemnations of villainy based on things like skin color, mode of attire, hair style, personal hygiene, and a number of other factors that many harbor a sense of "ickiness" about.

If only it were so easy. It is time for humanity to realize that the biggest evil is that which is the best disguised.

This is the real face of evil. Smiling, grandfatherly, non-threatening, clean, well-groomed, and able to cut your throat without changing demeanor.
