It's Nearly December...

...and that requires good cookies.

I'm sick and tired. I've given up. Entirely.

CBS4 Miami

And more Dave Barry and his Gift Guide, this time in person.


It is tradition for Dave Barry to create a Gift Guide for every Christmas. And it is tradition for me to link it.


By the way, I'm back.

Announcements in the Throes of Thanks and Giving

Both me and Andy are taking a bit of a break. I know, I know, we normally don't tell you when we are, and we take plenty of them, so why should we this time? But this time we are. Don't know when we'll feel like being back... maybe the end of Thanksgiving weekend, maybe later, maybe even later, but the point is: we're both pooped. Maybe we'll feel better after it all, and maybe not. We will be back at some point, I assume you.

So, to all my readers, all their families, all their friends, and all the Internet, we give you our wishes of good tidings and good cheer, and we thank you from the bottoms of our black hearts (if Andy even has a heart... I heard he replaced it with a large cooling fan). Thank you, and give all you can.

Happy Thanksgiving, PETA!

Pacman said to my earlier post: "I think Macy's is making a pathetic attempt to get people to like them."

Personally, I think Macy's should go to Hell and take its abused, window-dwelling kittens with.

I mean... Happy Thanksgiving!

Almost Thanksgiving

Start Thanking early!

How 'Bout Dat Apple?

Also relating to football, I'll say what all the Chicago papers have been saying but not saying: Macy's, leave Chicago now--we just kicked your city's ass in football two weeks in a row.

Mass hysteria!

And this article has a better picture, if you get my drift.

Momma Shoulda Learned Not to Name Her Boy "Milton"

So, there're a lot of libertarians/economic conservatives out there crying, and I really don't know why.

Nerds in Britain

They are much worse than here, really.

Post #666

Most blogs celebrate that they've reached 666 posts. It's a milestone for even reaching that many posts, and it's also a milestone because most blogs are the Anti-Christ.

But I barely plan to mention it even.

Snugglie Grundies

Hey, my friend Snuggs is on the radio! Or well, a podcast. Or, an MP3 that's masquerading as a podcast.

By the way...

I'm testing some new dynamics to the archive setup. As you can see, it still has bugs.

Wait... I said bugs.

Veterans' Day and Armistice Day make a person somewhat nostalgic. However, I didn't remember it was that holiday until just about two minutes ago. Good ol' American memory at work.

A Few Serious Words

Democrats have won the Senate. And the House. And Bush still can veto everything they do. As they say, a government doing nothing is the best kind of government (I'm paraphrasing).

We're safe for two years.

Also, there was something I was wondering about last night: the news said that the eternally-beleaguered dictator-of-his-very-own-prison-cell Saddam Hussein was going back to trial. It even specified that it was a different trial than the one that just sentenced him to hang. So, Iraqis are going to hang him twice?

I'm sure Texas can learn a thing or two, here.


Rumsfeld is stepping down? Good luck finding a new job, your references won't get you anywhere.

"Then, once the Rapture has occurred and the saved are off the planet, the Democrats will regain both the House and the Senate." ~Jon 176:3

And throwing out my right to a secret ballot, I voted against both Blagojevich and Topinka in the Illinois governor race. I figured, what the hell, they're calling each other George Ryan back and forth. They're both mini-George Ryans, so why shouldn't have the real thing? I wrote in "George Ryan" for governor. He hasn't been executed yet, has he?

The Democrats won the House a few hours ago. They're struggling to get control of the Senate, and they've won most of the important Illinois races that were up for grabs.

Joe Lieberman came back to win after losing the primary, giving less hope to people who hate party politics. The only successful Independents in the past eight years have been a sourpuss conservative Democrat and a wrestler. I myself would've chosen the wrestler.

Luckily, Mark Foley did not win his race even while being a gay child molester and while not running, in a blatant stroke against the norm of democracy.

Also, I noticed while voting that, instead of the old faithful punch cards or the new electronic T-1000 voting machines, I was voting by connecting one end of an arrow to another. With a sharpie. Did anyone have to do tasks more child-like than me, such as eating paste, to vote for a candidate this year?

It's already pretty late in the day... apparently, they're calling the governor's election in Illinois for Rod Blagojevich (D). And, Todd Stroger, the Democrat and son of the original man running in this race, is beating the Republican Peraica handily.

In other news, I hear that out of the 10-15% votes counted in that race so far, most is from Chicago cemeteries.

Well, then! This is your friendly neighborhood election coverage that's going on until I get bored of it. Which, due to election parties and better things to do than pay attention to, of all things, a midterm election, may happen quickly.

Don't blink! You may miss my updates!

Perfect for Election Day. Kill all those incumbents!

Remember, Remember the First Tuesday of November

Midterm Election Day today, thoughts later.

You were planning on voting, right? Because not voting would be un-American, almost criminal, and nearly Soviet in nature.

Dick Cheney to Spend Election Day Hunting from Fox News

Also, for Hunger Week, the Loyola College Republicans were giving away free food on campus (yes, they were accepting donations). This was to college students, not to actual hungry people, saying something along the lines of, "Hey, they're hungry, and we're not! Let's have some gud bratwurst!"

Life has begun to satirize itself. I'm out of the job.

In Honor...

...of the Illinois governor race, Master Mark Twain has a story for you.



They start so young.

It's Hunger Awareness Week again, and so I'm going to eat the last cupcake.

Chicago Vocabulary!

Some for you!

Quote: "Loyola: 1) Loyola University. 2) The section of the Rogers Park neighborhood near Loyola University. 3) Loyola Academy, the high school where Chris O'Donnell went."

Wow. Chris O'Donnell, did you write that?

If You Miss EQ...

...you'll like Skahld's old videos! Mostly, I just remember his old "Monks" video. It was the first time I saw machinima and it was pretty much Red Vs. Blue EQ-style.

However, if you're not into EQ/MMOs and/or you don't like monks, let alone "Monks," you probably can pass this link up.
