It’s BoobQuake Day

A great big shout out and thank you to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who last week said immodestly dressed women cause earthquakes. This has caused the women to dress immodestly. One question though: what if there’s an earthquake today?

Either way, taking their chances are Kathy and Wendy, and dipping his toe into the fun is the Fiery Kitty.

As for me, I’ll be watching for you today – just to cheer you on you understand. And remember, garter, stockings and stilettos cause hurricanes.

Update: I knew the fabulous Wonder Woman wouldn’t be able to stay out of the fray. Now about that stockings and stilettos thing…

A picture is worth a thousand words:


Doesn’t the President look like he’s telling the Prime MInister a dirty-ish joke here?

And in case you think I’m being partisan and unfair, Prime Minister Harper looks like he doesn’t get the joke.

There was a blogger of Hespeler.
Said his wife to him “monsieur.
There’s too much blogging.
I’ll give you a flogging.”
So he logged off and he let her.

fun, Limericks

You Can Say That Again

Comments Off on You Can Say That Again

Last week the Macadamia Nut wrote about problems with Microsoft Vista:

Does not play well with others
Anybody out there having a little trouble with Microsoft Vista? Turns out… you’re not alone

Well, it’s nice to know I’m not alone anyway. On Monday night I was blogging away, doing a three part parody of Bill Clinton’s musings that “Hey, we’ll let Obama, who’s in first right now, gracefully accept second place…” Two posts got finished (here and here) and posted. Meanwhile I was running Microsoft update in the background, when CRASH.

A full year after buying it, my version of Vista decided it was an illegal version, and that I must register it. So, four or five calls to Microsoft help later, with a call centre that kept auto-hanging upon me and Indian guys who simply couldn’t help (the process was so buggy, in fact, it can only be explained by suggesting the call centre platform is running on Vista.), I fixed the problem myself. But post number three sat, and sat…

Until now:

Coyote to declare a Tie with Road Runner

After years of failing to capture the speedy road runner, Wile E. Coyote has declared a draw with the road runner. “Granted, I never caught him,” says Mr. Coyote, “but he never caught me either.”

When it was pointed out to him that the Road Runner never actually tried to catch him, the Coyote said, “hey, it’s good enough for Dion, the Clinton’s and the Maple Leafs!”

OK, I’ll stop now, I promise.

Going to be in and out of town the next three or four days so blogging will be light to non-existent (unlike the usual heavy load I have been carrying lately).

Blog Administration, fun, Vista Sucks

The McCain Blogettes

March 4th, 2008
Comments Off on The McCain Blogettes

If your looking for ways to follow the American campaign trail, the McCain Blogette website is a great one. Written by John McCain’s daughter Meghan and featuring pictures by Heather Brand and video footage by Shannon Bae, it covers life on the road in McCain’s bus, the Straight Talk Express (why is it that politicians are so good at doing lame?)

This is a fun, youthful look at a political campaign from the inside. And while it certainly qualifies as a campaign website, it’s fun and light enough that even people who are not supporters of McCain should be able to enjoy it.

And while your there, the Blogette Playlists are a good read through; I’m still listening to Noonday Underground’s Boy Like a Timebomb.

fun, Politics American Style

Tag, I’m it

February 27th, 2008

Hunter climbed out of the dark to tag me, so here it is.

Meme: Share six non-important things/habits/quirks about yourself.

1. My house-key is a big blue Toronto Maple Leaf key – all the better to find the right key in the dark.

2. The 2nd best present I got this Christmas is a Jimmy Page action figure, complete with amp and cigarette.

3. I prefer Starbucks to Tim’s, and like my coffee latte’d.

4. I don’t believe a country has it’s own inherent literature (i.e. Can Lit). A good book is a good book, and can come from anywhere. Yet my two favourite books are written by Canadians.

5. Strawberries are my favourite food; brussel sprouts my least favourite.

6. I prefer to party like it’s 1989, even if I can’t anymore.
