Bears

with 2 comments

Check out this baby bear.  This bear doesn’t have teeth.  This is the only kind of bear for me.

I may not have teeth but I still want to eat you!

This bear is shocked that congress failed to pass a bailout today.  No matter, this bear will just munch on some yummy stocks while Washington decides what to do.  yum yum yum.

Loving on the Lindsay

with 2 comments

I know I’m late to comment on this one, and it’s hardly a revelation anyway, but I am really loving the now official Lohan/Ronson couple.

ain't they cute?

'aint they sweet?

Do you remember the d-listers Lindsay used to date? I mean, here’s a short list of the grease monkeys who come up on her “who-dated-who” page:
  • Aaron Carter (ew)
  • Brandon Davis (ewwwwwwwwww)
  • Mitch Mortaza (who?)
  • Brent Bolthouse (really?)
I’m not sure how accurate this who-dated-who site is but regardless, Sam Ronson is 700 billion times cooler than these turd-faces and big plus, seems to shower on a regular basis. They both look so happy and lovable in this picture.  Also, I am mesmerized by total lack of cellulite on Lindsay’s upper thigh.  Anyway, yay Rohan! or SamLo or whatever.

blogging the bailout

with 5 comments

I’m back, bitches! And blogging the financial crisis. That’s right: I’ve learned everything there is to know about the American economy in the past two weeks, and I’m ready to share my half-baked insights and advice with the 2-3 readers who occasionally check in on my blog. (What would Teresa say?)

Today two big things happened: 1) Congress failed to come to an agreement on how best to deal with total economic chaos, while at the very same time, 2) Washington Mutual was seized by the government in what was the largest bank failure in U.S. history.

So, then. My half-baked advice of the day: FREAK OUT! Starting tomorrow I will be rushing to various ATM machines around the city and withdrawing the remaining cash in my account so I can store it in the freezer for the next 4 to 5 years. In 2012 I should have a very cold $443.78 waiting for me. What will you fools have? Not a pot to piss in. I probably won’t have one either. I tend not to use pots, not to mention jars or urns. Bushes, corners, other people’s beds, on the other hand….I’m just saying, it’s a good thing I’ve been saving milk bottles for the past year. Just in case they come in handy when the banks collapse and our financial infustructure infrastructure goes kaput. Piggy bottles!

Tune in tomorrow, by which point I hope that inspiration will rouse me to blog another useless post. With recipes for theme drinks you can serve at your debate parties. Tri-color shots, y’all. Gross, but patriotic: for America, but also France, Italy, and Russia.

Please Stop

with 3 comments

Dear everyone –

Please stop talking about Sarah Palin. Please? She’s all up in my inbox, I can’t surf the internet during work without reading 15 new stories about her and it’s been non-stop Palin on the cable TV for two weeks now. Even the interior design blog I read recently had anti-Sarah Palin buttons posted as their “Etsy find of the day.”

FYI, there is some serious crafting going on around this woman. Can I interest you in a Palin brooch?

Put some more lipstick on this pitbull!

Or maybe a lovely piece of art betters suits?

This costs $300.  For reals.

And for the anti’s out there, have you considered wearing your heart on your wrist cuff?
The inside is stamped "pro-choice" and "protect polar bears"

Warhol-inspired shirt, maybe? Now you can finally take off that nasty old “Got Hope?” tee you’ve been sporting since the Iowa caucuses for long enough to wash it.

This is the third in a series.  In case you're interested

The third in a series. In case you are interested in collecting.

“Craftivism” is the name for politically inspired pieces of flair like the above. Sweet! Here’s what I wonder. Where do these folks find the time??  Because between work and sleep and reality TV it’s hard enough for me to get off the couch and fix a drink, let alone bang out a set of silkscreen tees or felt lady pins. In just 13 days, no less. Plus you have to photograph them and put them on the web.

NO WAY.

Anyway. As I was saying before I fell down the craftivism hole, no more Palin!! She’s running for VICE PRESIDENT! Who cares? I mean, yeah she did magically appear out of nowhere quite recently and yeah, she had a couple caribou stuffed in her closet and yeah she’s hardly qualified and yeah if you’re a democrat you should be scared OFF YOUR ASS about her and the fact that McCain has been leading in the poll since Monday, but enough already! Palin-fatigue has officially set in. There are other, important things going on in this campaign that I would like to know about and if I have to hear the phrase “heartbeat a way from the presidency” one more time I’m going to just flip.

(Etsy has a button, btw, in case you’d like to purchase).

So, I was going to officially start blogging this week, until I got slammed with work. But still – I promise to post something once a day to keep you little tweeties entertained. Please enjoy this awesome freestyle canoe performance. Make sure you watch the whole thing so you don’t miss the big finish…
