Open Apology

Dear North America,

Please accept this, my abject apology, for retaining the entire spider population of the continent, in my basement.

Please rest assured, the matter is being dealt with, in the fastest possible manner.

Sincerely,
Redsugar

I want my two one dollars!!

The newspaper that Mikey Moore photoshopped for his little flick is suing him.

And here’s the good part. They’re suing him for an apology, an explanation of the discrepancy, and compensatory damages of one dollar. They aren’t trying to get rich from his lies. (And they could, easily.) They just want it made public. That is a beautiful thing.

I’m pleased, if stunned, to see such honesty from American media. (Ok, I would have been happier, but evil, if they’d taken him for millions.)

HAHAHAHAHAHA!

*choke* HAHAHAHAHA!!

Still a match

Oy vey. I was just going for the creepy eye thing. I had to post something to justify all this traffic…

Jeff’s and Steven’s are much better.

(Restored only because OTB linked it before I managed to delete it, and I finally noticed.)

Dark Shopping

I would buy these, but I’m not sure I’d be able to stop. I mean, they only give you ten…

I might need this, tho. Even if I’m not quite sure it means what I think it means…

One of the world’s best smells

I just got my second batch of Demeter samples in the mail. I got it from this guy if you’re interested.

This one has honeysuckle in it, which is the one I wanted the most. It didn’t smell like anything in the vial. I could smell it a little, but it just smelled like perfume. I put a little on my left wrist and went back to my mail.

My nose must be tired. A few minutes later, I sniffed my wrist and, I’m not kidding, I shrieked “OH MY GOD!!”

I am not given to shrieking, even when having bits of my anatomy pierced (and I haven’t even opened the bacardi yet). I’m not sure I’ve ever been that shocked. I smell like I have a honeysuckle bush growing out of my arm.

I’ll be sending you people to card…

I stopped at the grocery store, along with 40 other places, after work, and picked up, among other things, a bottle of bacardi. So I get up to the counter, the girl says hi, and I smile and say hi back. In retrospect, that was my fatal error. I take my groceries out of the basket and put them on the belt. She doesn’t even touch them. Doesn’t even roll the belt forward.

“Can I see your ID?” Sure, so I take it out and give it to her. She stands there looking at it for about 20 seconds, so I go “it’s in red.” It’s an out-of-state ID (Shut up. I know. I’m going tomorrow.) and some people can’t find it. She goes, “I know. I see it….. …. … do you have any other ID?” I think I started laughing. I said “I have my old ID, from before that one” and took it out and gave it to her.

I’m making her sound like a real bitch, but she was actually really nice and apologetic. She said, “I’m sorry. You just don’t look…” and mumbled “old enough” so I could barely hear her. Then I know I laughed. She said “Let me check with my manager.” She took it over to the service desk and the manager took one look at me and… got out the license book.

WTF?! I mean, I’m not mad, and I got my booze after she looked up the license, but WTF?

We went back over to the register, and she apologized about fifty more times. I said:

I’m so blogging this.

No, I didn’t. I told her I was flattered and not to worry about it.

BUT, more importantly than all of that: They had Diet Cherry Coke. Diet! Cherry! Coke!!

Which is why I was buying the bacardi. And it doesn’t even taste like nuclear waste. Diet!! Cherry!!! Coke!!!!!!

I really need more female readers.

Good Linkage

“Dudes, this treppenwitz thing I surfed today, like, totally doesn’t suck!”

I’ve been meaning to pick thru David’s archives and link to some of his best entries (in my opinion, of course), so you’d be hopelessly addicted too. But he’s going to start posting his favorites himself, so pay attention.

Treppenwitz is rapidly becoming my favorite blog. Seriously. Go see why.

BlogByte of the Day

…Teddy Kennedy said in his convention speech: “The only thing we have to fear is four more years of George Bush.”

…If so, I wonder why anyone agreed to the stringent security policies that characterize this year’s conventions. Why the bomb-sniffing dogs? Why the snipers? Why the metal detectors, the invasive inspection of bags? Is it all an elaborate defense against Bush crashing the party and setting off a bomb belt, shouting God is Great, y’all!

No, they

Rules of Combat

Dear “Claire,” whoever you are:

Please fire your campaign manager. White lettering on yellow? Seriously?
