I’m reposting it because a) it is well researched b) it is funny, as her stuff tends to be and c) it’s not mean spirited. Is the US ready for a woman president?
Last night was the most fun I’ve had in so long that it’s just bizarre. Somebody I thought had no use for me treated me like a cool older sister all night in a myriad of subtle and unsubtle ways; somebody I know basically by reputation as a good person talked to me with the kind of amusing intelligence that makes my month, let alone my day, and I really liked everything I saw last night. Oh, and I talked to an award winning actress, who was older than me so I DIDN’T have to feel like I was the oldest person there. And that crowd wasn’t ageist ANYWAY; it was just crap I was carrying around with me until I’d been there for about 15 minutes. Continue reading 20,600 words and counting
Don’t you find the notion of Pandemic Glu rather scary?
I was up til one working on the novel, which has come roaring back into my consciousness in a most messy and untoward way. I won’t say anything else except I’ve figured out what the structure is, and it isn’t a novel. It’s an xrated tv movie, complete with commercials.
Every morning for days now, there’s been a coating of ice on everything. The sunrises have put me in mind of Dunnett, “A glory to bludgeon the senses”. Continue reading More frost, hoar frost
If you really love me, you’ll buy me this….
Okay, I was kidding. But it’s still pretty amazing.
What a bizarre notion. But quite possible, as noted here….
This is just plain freaky. The dominatrix clown?
Ran into this device and thought I’d share it… you never know when an idea like this will come in handy. The Watercone.

I appreciate your input, which is vital to better understanding the concerns and issues of constituents in Burnaby-New Westminster.
I have been concerned about this direction of the former Liberal government and the current Conservative government to inhibit users’ rights. For that reason, I was the first MP to table petitions expressing this concern in Parliament. Continue reading a note from my MP
Let’s just say that the OTHER comics were really funny. What I find entertaining most of all is that I made an effort (a small one) to you know, show up on time, write new material, and push my boundaries. Some of the folks I went through David Granirer’s course with have not written any significantly new material in a year. I write new material for every gig; it’s a damned good thing I’m only going out once a year, but it’s hard to claim you do standup if you sit around the house every night whinging about what a coward you are. Continue reading Mean-spirited, yes, but o so funny
pOp has probably already seen this, but in case he hasn’t….
pOp has a wonderful story about watching a very large sphere of ball lightning travel right down the middle of the Argus he was flying in. He managed to control the urge to touch it, and considering it zorched a damned bit hole in the aircraft, that’s prob’ly a good thing.
Also, proof that the FSM is indeed in us all.
Look for the post entitled FSM DNA
