My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

First Day

Well, someone is finally going to pay me not to blog this morning.... No, not really. But it is my first day on the job. So, some links seem to be in order....
Wit Nit has a great list of H.L. Mencken quotes. My favorite?

Hanging one scoundrel, it appears, does not deter the next. Well, what of it? The first one is at least disposed of.
He also has nineteen pearls of Dave Barry wisdom. Ha! Like...

7. No matter what happens, somebody will find a way to take it too seriously.

Do you believe in magic? This is really pretty cool. And I have no idea how it is done.


The Tanker Brothers fisk Cindy Sheehan here and here (something I found quite enjoyable). And reason number 2,497 why I have faith that we will win the war...

Cindy Says:
A New World Is Possible -- And necessary! This is the theme for the World Social Forum that I (along with tens of thousands of people from all over the world) am attending in Caracas this week. I know the idea of a world where everyone lives in peace and with justice is very "subversive," but the theme is very close to my heart and soul.

Tanker Brothers Say:
Damn Skippy, we need a New World. A world with justice, where criminals and terrorists who commit crimes against their people won't be let off the hook because some Anti-War Peace Activist doesn't have the "stones" to do the right thing. We need a New World with guys like President Bush calling the shots, showing resolve, and doing the right thing. This should be the theme for your World Socialist (or whatever) Forum. The idea of a world where everyone lives in Peace and with justice cannot happen until criminals and terrorists are eliminated or incarcerated. Only then can you have justice. And as a result...peace.

There's lots more where that came from....

Trouble wrote a letter to her.... uh.... friend. Yeah. Her friend.... Filled with really good advice.


And finally, Robert Fulghum (one of my favorite authors) presents a new theory concerning missing socks...
