Due to an irrational fear of touching or being touched by butter (not kidding), this video makes me want to start crying.
It’s nice to see a kid so young be so poised and articulate! All those years of pageants have really paid off.
In Miley Cyrus news, looks like somebody needs to lay off the damn Salvia.
Speaking of Salvia:
Oh and Dick Clark died.
So yeah, it’s been pretty quiet on the blogging front due to finishing the line edits on my dissertation. I haven’t had much space in my head for any more words than absolutely necessary. I have however had several outstanding television experiences, including the actually genius Food Network show Sweet Genius. Not since Too Cute has a show made me so happy.
It’s not the cooking I care about, it’s the derangement. Chef Ron gives contestants really weird ingredients to work with, shit like wheatgrass and duck meat, and even weirder inspiration pieces, for example “sand” and “Chinese Dragon Head” and then is like MAKE ME A CHOCOLATES LOL.
One show that made me WAT into my soup was this hot mess, about a Spanish woman named Tania Head who told everyone she’d been on the 76th floor of the second WTC tower and had survived against all odds. She became the poster-lady for the 9/11 Survivor Network, and even was asked to speak at the memorial for the guy who she claimed saved her life. Despite the fact that she’d never stepped foot in the US until 2003. And had never been inside the World Trade Center. And, you know, wasn’t a survivor. To say that I don’t even is the understatement of the year.
I am going to write something about the dissertation tomorrow, for now all of my thinking parts hurt.

One of the things that’s nice about being back on the west coast is that by the time I wake up and make myself some coffee, the internet is already abuzz & most everything bizarre that’s going to be posted is already up. On the east coast, I’d have to wait for everybody to get to work, since that’s where all the mischief happens. And is why the weekends are so quiet, there’s no oppressive Man to stick things to.
Speaking of oppression, here’s the poor man’s Martha Stewart on the origin of messes, for which the only excuse is carelessness.
Reminds me of something…
The art of the slowdown, starring Toddlers and Tiaras very own 40-something drag queen prostitot, Miss Eden Wood.
Color me impressed, this is really good you guys. She’s livin’ the life she wants to live! Caviar in the sky!
In conclusion, zombies.

Jesus Christ. No literally. Jesus discovered America.
Wait, I take that back. Jesuschrist, but this time used as a swear.
I see your (my?) “jesuschrist” and raise you (me?) a jesuschrist.
