The still-unnamed dog:
The Current List of Dog Names:
Loretta (We could call her Loretty, just like in "Coal Miner's Daughter")
June (A fitting tribute to Mrs. Carter Cash...plus: "Junebug"=cute)
Dolly (Obvs...plus: Dali? Hmm? Play on words?)
Nora (I met Jim Roll’s wife’s cousin (a girl with a firm handshake named Nora) and the name seemed to click)
Daisy (Juliet Low, the founder of the Girl Scouts, was nicknamed Daisy)
Augusta (We could call her Gus)
Pumpernickel (Because "Penny & 'Nickel" sounds sooooo cute)
Sharon (so we can say SHARON!!!! in our best Ozzy voice)
Scarlett (Oh, Miss Scarlett)
Sox (from Boston, DUH!...although, this name indicates that we are more excited about baseball than we really are...)
Wishbone (Benefits: you can call her "Bone", which sounds good, and when she does something silly, you can call her "Boner.")
Hiccup (This is actually quite applicable since she gets the hiccups about twice a day)
Chili (I like this because she shivers when she's outside,
plus Jamie and Tania have a dog named "Beans" so we could have Chili With Beans and Chili Without Beans)
Names I like but we probably won't use:
Babe (Cool Boston baseball reference, but there was a pig called Babe...)
Ruth (See above, but I've got a Grandma named Ruth)
Minnie (I like the Minnie Pearl reference, but Minnie Mouse...
plus people could think we mean "Mini"...it just doesn't sit all the way right)
Yak Ballz (Sigh...If only she were male...)
Morning Milk Whamo! (Is it a dog? Is it a sugar-coated breakfast cereal? You decide)
Greg's Vomit (uh...sorry Jamie, not actually a good name.)
Robert Paulson (Despite the fact that she's a girl, it would be totally funny if when somebody asked the dog's name,
Penny and I just got totally stone-faced and chanted "His Name Is Robert Paulson. His Name Is Robert Paulson.")
Goodness Gracious me, GoldenPalace.com bought that Virgin Mary grilled cheese for $28,000.

Much like Martin Luther King, I had a dream last night and the only thing I can remember is that we were all at work and Vladimir came out from the back room in a white tanktop with one of those blue plastic/paper things that the dentist puts on you with a clip and a chain around his neck. He was wiping his hands with a rag like he had just finished doing the dishes, and he looked at all of us like he was simply disgusted.

Looking at the discographies for The Beatles or Britney Spears is a jumble...
There is a pretty cool "Favorites" function where if you hit one of those "Plus" symbols next to a name or an album,
it files that away under a "Scratch List" at the top for quick re-visiting.

Dear President Bush,
Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's law. I have learned a great deal from you and try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination. End of debate. I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how to follow them:
1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not to Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?
2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?
3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanliness (Lev. 15:19-24). The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.
4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord (Lev. 1:9). The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?
5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states that he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?
6. A friend of mine feels that, even though eating shellfish is an abomination (Lev. 11:10), it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? Are there "degrees" of abomination?
7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room here?
8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?
9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?
10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them (Lev. 24:10-16)? Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws (Lev. 20:14)?
I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I am confident you can help.
Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

* 19 have been accused of writing bad checks
* 117 have directly or indirectly bankrupted at least 2 businesses
* 3 have done time for assault
* 71 cannot get a credit card due to bad credit
* 14 have been arrested on drug-related charges
* 8 have been arrested for shoplifting
* 21 are currently defendants in lawsuits
* 84 have been arrested for drunk driving in the last year

where people post their apologies regarding the election to the rest of the world like "Sorry, we're almost as fucked as you" and "I live in Florida which is shaped like a Wang." Quite heartfelt, really.
Also, look at this image. Look at New Mexico, Ohio, and Florida.
It shows that Kerry ranked higher in the exit polls, but still won on the machine ballots or paper ballots. I know it probably depends on who is being polled, and at which polling locations, but sheesh! Doesn't it seem like there was some heinous fuckery most foul there?
Also also, look at this CNN article entitled Machine Error Gives Bush Extra Ohio Votes.
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Franklin County's unofficial results had Bush receiving 4,258 votes to Democrat John Kerry's 260 votes in the precinct. Records show only 638 voters cast ballots in that precinct.

Not Happy mind you...but at least happier.
Maeve makes us all a little bit happier:
An interesting tidbit I found:
Worth noting: Bush received more votes AGAINST him than any sitting President in history. Even the drubbing of Jimmy Carter in 1980 didn't see as many votes against Carter as there were against Bush last night. In 1980, a total of 50.5 million votes were cast against Carter... 43.9 million for Reagan, 5.7 million for Anderson and 900,000 for other candidates. Last night, Bush had 55.4 million votes thrown against him.

E-mail from a friend in a fit of beautiful, unfiltered, crystalline rage:
This fucking country deserves what it gets. When we invade Iran in a few months, spreading our already stretched military even further for the Bush/Cheney oil grab, it will be the fault of all those who voted for Bush.
When war is declared on us by an actual country because we are so incredibly isolationist and oblivious to the real dynamics going on the world -- not the facile and backward "good and evil" Bush likes to spew -- it will be the fault of those Republicans with their heads in the sand.
When women lose their right to an abortion because Bush and his Faith-Based Government finally jostle themselves into a supreme court nomination, and young women across the country have to turn to illegal, unsafe methods to control the outcome of their lives, it will be the fault of all the people (likely these poor young women's parents) who used thousand-year-old documents to determine what they believe and who they vote for.
When our culture becomes a brittle, Puritanical shell of itself as the gay and lesbian communities across the country migrate en masse to places where their rights are recognized, it will be the stupid voters who voted against gay marriage, even though it didn't impact them at all, who will have to live here.
I hate this fucking country, and it's gonna get what it deserves.
Hey Look! It's a Monkey!
He's got glasses on!
Looks like they're finally going to release the Twin Peaks Pilot on DVD, along with the semi-lousy 2nd season.
Ha! I knew if I waited long enough they'd release it...oh wait...Late 2005? Jeez M. Crow!

Wonderful audio interview with George Carlin on NPR.
Nice dialogue about his love of language, the power of language in the world, how it works into his comedy.
It's not Carlin ranting and bitching. Its an intellectual conversation.
He did make one political point I was ruminating on myself a few weeks ago;
Conservatives always want less government, and "to let the marketplace decide" when it comes to finance and economy. Get off their backs. But when its moral issues, and letting people themselves decide, suddenly they're interested in controls "when its a uterus or the libido involved."
Jason Rhodes shaved off all his hair.
Now how is Donkers supposed to call him "Hippie" and have it mean anything?
here's a picture where you can almost see Serena Williams' nipples.
ahhh, DataWhat...It's good to be back to not caring anymore.
