Cassandra Maybe, but not that vapid bitch

I just want to comment on Elephant's most recent post: I appreciate the sentiment, my love, and I too sacrifice to our fair love goddess, but I must emphasize that I am not, repeat, am NOT, as worthless and inactive as Helen. I'm not helpless, for God's sake.

And Liliana, a hint: he's awfully fond of gifts. Large ones. Like horses, or maybe Trojan elephants?

If Robin Lovitt had been on Death Row in a state with a Republican governor with presidential ambitions, I doubt he'd have been so lucky. No quibbling over the reasons, right, Liliana?

Yeah yeah, I've been gone for a while. I'm not dead or anything, but Thanksgiving found me in Maryland doing my best not to embarrass myself in front of the in-laws, and now I have a crazy work schedule and no wireless at my apartment.

I'm glad to see that in my absence, the Maoists are still keeping it real. I really wish we heard more dispatches from Nepal. I still regret not studying abroad there(revolution, schmevolution, to paraphrase a friend, just knowing the Himalayas exist makes whatever happens in my life okay).

Also, lets keep the threats in the comments to a minimum. There's only five of you, so play nice. I'll get to everything when I have the luxury of time to play with the blog again.

I learned new things this weekend. Here's a brief list:

1. I don't hate my retail job. I actually kind of like it.

1(a) Coach bags are overpriced.
1(b) People who buy Coach bags "because they forgot their evening bag" are out of touch with reality.

2. Food poisoning sucks. A lot.

3. If Brett Favre played for the Redskins, they wouldn't be 5-4.

If you refer to number 2, you'll understand why I was thinking about number 3.

Why working in a huge department store is bad

You're surrounded by so much stuff, so many items, that you forget to put your favorite ring(purchased years ago in another country) back on when you're done washing your hands in the bathroom.




Now my day doesn't seem so good...

Lemmy Says, "Only Lemmings Use Drugs"

That's right, the frontman for Motorhead went to speak to Welsh Parliament to offer his services as a "Headbanging-My antidrug" shill.

Personally I'm in favor of any anti-drug campaign that takes the "it's not all drugs, just smack" position in trying to keep the easily influenced young ones out of trouble. Lemmy seems like the parent that says, "I don't mind if you do it, just as long as you're in the house,...and you share."

I pity the youth of Wales, although now I sure would love to hear Ace of Spades...

Halloween, an addendum

I didn't even notice the penis. How blind I've become!

News, or something like it

Without a wireless router in my house, I might have gone all day without seeing this, truly a sign of the apocalypse. Aaron Brown may be responsible for the strangest bit of news anchoring I've ever seen(following the massive anti-war protests in 2003), but he doesn't deserve to be so abused by CNN. Jonathan Klein is a true moron-why else would he subject the public to THREE HOURS of Wolf Blitzer and then force them to deal with Larry King? I remember when CNN was good, when it actually gave me information, but that was a long time ago. It's sad how quickly it crumbled. As if this is any surprise to anyone. It's still sad...

I'm sure Gawker's covered this like crazy already, but, as I said, I have greatly reduced access to internet. The new job will take me away from computers for hours at a time! I lost yesterday to corporate retail training(do they stop treating you like a retarded monkey at some point, or are you supposed to not notice?), so I'm really out of it. Did I miss anything?
