Not really. Just wanted to post that I'm on MySpace. Like a lemming. But don't worry! I won't post there either.

From newspaper Dallas Morning News:
President Bush, please see what's happening. The American people want to believe the government is doing everything it can do -- not to rebuild or to stabilize gas prices -- just to restore the most basic order. So far, they are hearing about Herculean efforts, but they aren't seeing them.

Guess the Movie
Very cool game indeed, thanks Jill!
I got 32 after one try, 38 after two, and 42 after three. A few look really familiar, but I don't know about a lot of them too. How did YOU do?!

Bush: Holding Three Jobs Uniquely American
While talking with audience participants, the president met Mary Mornin, a woman in her late fifties who told the president she was a divorced mother of three, including a 'mentally challenged' son.
The President comforted Mornin on the security of social security stating that 'the promises made will be kept by the government.'
But without prompting Mornin began to elaborate on her life circumstances.
MS. MORNIN: That's good, because I work three jobs and I feel like I contribute.
THE PRESIDENT: You work three jobs?
MS. MORNIN: Three jobs, yes.
THE PRESIDENT: Uniquely American, isn't it? I mean, that is fantastic that you're doing that. (Applause.) Get any sleep? (Laughter.)

Along with Eastwood, Jamie Foxx also scored two nominations, as best actor for the title role in "Ray" and supporting actor as a taxi driver whose cab is hijacked by a hit man in "Collateral."
What was that you were saying about Foxx not being an actor? Hoho!

Pentagon reveals rejected chemical weapons
THE Pentagon considered developing a host of non-lethal chemical weapons that would disrupt discipline and morale among enemy troops, newly declassified documents reveal.
Most bizarre among the plans was one for the development of an "aphrodisiac" chemical weapon that would make enemy soldiers sexually irresistible to each other. Provoking widespread homosexual behaviour among troops would cause a "distasteful but completely non-lethal" blow to morale, the proposal says.
Now I was trying to find a good Izzard quote that could accompany this (click that link for a few more very strange weapons), but all I found was this great line discussing the difference between English and American English.
Now, You say 'erbs' and we say 'herbs' because there's a fucking h in it!
Damn right, Eddie.

Mix and Share
For the past few years, I've put together a little holiday mix CD with songs. This year moved a bit quickly, though, and I didn't have time to send them out to anyone I knew. So, in the interest of fulfilling the needs of my readership (and post something substantial), I thought I'd share the tracklisting with some of my thoughts on the songs. Yes, you are extremely lucky to read this. More that actually pertains to real life soon enough!
"That Spirit of Christmas" by Ray Charles from Spirit of Christmas
This is always a good way to start off a holiday CD, especially with one of the best Christmas songs I can remember. Whether it's being played on National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation or Dexter Sy's notoriously rare Nintendojo Holiday movie, this one hits me ::points to heart:: right here. ::bites lip, lowers voice to a whisper:: Right here.
