Gin & tonics? Another reason to be happy right now.

  • We drove all over the east foothills of the Coast Range today. I live in the most beautiful place in the world.
  • Madame Speaker of the House. Madame Speaker. Speaker of the House Pelosi. Madame Speaker of the House. Do you know, I cried for joy when I heard that Madeleine Albright became Secretary of State. Madame Speaker of the House Pelosi. Respect.
  • Sage knows where the emergency key is, and leaves things in my house. Beautiful things, that he made himself. They are sparkly and so pretty that I gasped when I saw them. And when my gorgeous shiny blue wheels are put together with my anodized blue chain and the sparkly blue handlebar tape, I am going to have the most princessy fixed-gear ever. When she’s put together, I’ll post a picture and then you can blind yourself, so that such perfect beauty will be the last thing you ever see.
  • Ali left me a note, on the outside of the book JMPP sent me. Thanks, JMPP! Men, this is all you have to write:
    Don’t you ever come home early? I’ve been enjoying my new porch since ~3:15, watching the yellow leaves rain down and tumble across the road, making one of my favorite noises (I mean, other than your laughter, of course). Maybe you’ll get here before I eat my arm off, and you can cook some yummy first dinner, or maybe I’ll have to suck it up & go cook some mediocre mish-mash I find in my cupboard. Ewh. Man, get here soon, so you can cook some food and I can sit in your kitchen and watch you wiggle your butt. I MEAN, work diligently while enjoying our conversation and drinking gin & tonics. Oh yum.

    P.S. Is this the porn I recommended? I didn’t know you could get it on Amazon! Amazin’!
    I told you she is moving in with me, right? We’ll never leave the house.

UPDATE: I am at my library RIGHT NOW, and holding in my hands The End, Book the Thirteenth in a Series of Unfortunate Events. I cannot wait to see how it ends, and how a Variable Frequency Drive is going to save everything!

Rollin down the street, on my fixed gear, sippin on gin and juice
Laid back (with my mind on Pelosi, Madam Speaker of the House)

I think Variable Frequency Drive makes a pretty good band name. If only it had a more regular stress pattern, then it would be easier to put into lyrics.

Madame Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn. Possibly Madame President Hillary. Not to mention we're all sitting here, slaves to Megan's musings.

The writing's on the wall. Men will soon be nothing but reproductive slaves in the United States of Amazonia. Oh heck.

Ah, well. Treating women as inferiors, and somehow getting them to believe it, was good while it lasted.

And I, for one, welcome our new babe overlords. I'd like to
remind them that as a trusted Internet personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar

rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.

I thought modern men were generally happy to "work the sugar cave".

How will you ever find a boyfriend if you never leave the house? We rarely go door to door.

Geeze, it's like you're ignoring all of my excellent advice.

Gin and tonics, yuk! I cannot imagine how so many people can stand something so horribly bitter. On my list of favorite drinks, I would rank a gin and tonic slightly below Mr. Clean and slightly above Liquid Drano.

Completely changing the subject, have you seen this article from the NY Times, explaining that the best measure of an academic institution's quality is the success of its Ultimate Frisbee team?

Yep. That, or something similar, went around the circuit a few weeks back, and we were all extrememly smug and not at all surprised.

(I wasn't that surprised, for real. Ultimate players in general are smart, smart, smart and thoroughly educated.)

I have a suspicion that colleges that are highly rated in academic terms tend to have better-quality teams in most nonrevenue sports. Dunno if anyone's ever analyzed the issue.
