This blog needs me to post on it.
However, I've also decided it needs... yet another... facelift.
I think part of the reason is that I'm learning so much web crap at work week in and week out, that I look at this site now... especially the code (goddamn blogger)... and I want to make it niiiicer.
Maybe I'll start hosting this at stevepaulo.com instead of blogspot.com. Dunno.
Anyway, no posting for a while, I'll be re-examining the blog and what I want it to look like/how I want it to operate/etc.
My good buddy Greg sent me a hilarious image, depicting Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld in his many Kung-Fu stances... his own brand of Rum-Fu. Here are a few of my favorites:
For the whole magilla, click here.
Ten months ago, Heather and I started dating. It's been an incredible 10 months. I'm more sure now than ever... and more sure by the day... that I have found the woman I am meant to spend the rest of my life with. I love her, she is my best friend, and a day without her is a day wasted.
And, four weeks from today, at 10:50pm pacific time, Heather and I will be sitting on a plane heading down a strip of tarmac at SFO, on our way to Walt Disney World for 8 wonderful days and 7 magical nights. While there, we will celebrate 11 months together, and my birthday, and the Christmas season. My excitement for that seems to grow by the hour.
Maybe this is what we'll look like:
In reference to Comrade Leader's recent post...
It's now less than a month (29 days, 13 hours, 47 minutes, 34 seconds) until Heather and I leave for Walt Disney World. For the past 240-ish days I've had a ticker graphic in my signature at the DISBoards forum, counting down the time. It was on a month-by-month scale until two days ago...
Awww yeah... just days away now. We are totally stoked.
The current layout is, obviously, the same as this... it will get something unique next week.
I know not many people read my blog. But those who do, please pass this on.
Yesterday, in a hearing in front of the Senate Indian Affairs Committee, a memo was read into evidence from Mike Scanlon, an aide to criminally-indicted Republican and former House Majority Whip Tom DeLay, outlining the mobilization efforts the Republican Party uses to manipulate the base that gives them their power... the religious right.
And I quote:
Simply put we want to bring out the wackos to vote against something and make sure the rest of the public lets the whole thing slip past them. The wackos get their information from the Christian right, Christian radio, mail, the internet, and telephone trees.
How could any self-respecting Christian side with the GOP? Ideology aside... these people obviously loathe the Christian faithful and see them only as tools and pawns.
As VirginiaDem, a diarist over at DailyKos, who broke and publicized this story, wrote:
Well, here's their plan finally in black and white. This should piss off the wackos. It should anger the public. We're already fuming. If this quote is run as a DNC ad in every district in the country, we win both chambers in a landslide.
Amen. Spread the word. If the Republican Party has such disdain for Christianity, how can Christians continue to support the Republican Party?
An Arkansas man heard crashing glass in his daughter's bedroom.
He went in there to see what it was.
It was a huge five-point whitetail buck, thrashing about.
My favorite quote from the article:
Goldsberry intended to have the deer processed for its meat.
That just sounds fucking pimp. "I have bested ye in hand-to-hand combat, and now will have ye processed for thy meat." Word, Arkansas dude. Word.
I better get started.
