Happy Groundhog Day!


Leave it to someone to try to hijack an idea and control it.  When you start charging a grassroots organization to speak at it (to the tune of $100K – good job there, Palin) and charging $300-$500-something to show up… you have just missed the boat and hijacked an idea. People are TIRED of this kind of crap thinking.

I have to agree with this:

“It seems to me like it’s going to be a bunch of people who want to stand in front of our movement and lead it as parade leaders rather than being somebody who wants to walk with us in the parade,” said Scott Boston, member of Bowling Green Ohio Tea Party Patriots.

I say we keep it low-level and keep going the way we have.  You don’t need a bunch of controllers if the idea has merit.  It’ll fly without a bunch of people pulling a “for profit” move.


I happen to like the little rodents.

I admit that I do harbor in my heart a dark curiosity, wondering what the little buggers taste like.  Especially the one in our back yard that gorged itself silly on berries (mulberries, to be exact).  He heard a noise one day and could barely speed-waddle over to the fence and almost couldn’t fit his girth under it.  I’d never seen a morbidly obese groundhog run before that.

Tomorrow night I will be watching “Groundhog Day” for my 53rd time.  Love that movie.  It’s like the Twilight Zone forced him to go through cognitive therapy the hard way, only without realizing it.  (yes, that’s a contradiction)


I hinted to Enas in the comments (in the last day or so) that I had a logo that the Lemur avatar came out of.  Here is the larger logo that has my friend’s shark added.  For the record we were both lifeguards so that explains the suits.  Neither of us are Swiss.  This was a very fun logo to do.

A variant on that shark – she knows lots about those splitty-fusey thingies so it made sense to make a rad shark:


I find the expression “backdoor taxes” to be particularly apt.

Avatar sans Cameron.

Why am I posting bs filler material tonight?  Because I’m exhausted but I want to let you know that I’m not dead or worse yet a democrat.  Far better to be a burnout on skid row than that.

Avatar in this context has nothing to do with James Cameron.  I haven’t even seen the movie yet.  No, in this case it has to do with making a gravatar – a globally recognized avatar if you haven’t already hit the snooze button.

Whattapainintheass.  But it’s done.  Upper right corner of this blog and attached to my idiot comments everywhere in the moronosphere.

Anyways, moving right along, the climate bedwetters still deny that there’s an elephant in the room in spite of crap like this. And this.

But that is all stuff cbullitt has been throwing up for months now.  I’m just remarking on it because the majors are still not picking it up and reporting it like they should be.  In fact, I am surprised that the Guardian is in front of most majors here in the US in terms of coverage.

Note:  Snarky Basterd pointed out that I was completely full of shite in negatively characterizing The Guardian as I did in this instance.  Let it be so noted.  I won’t change it so’s you all have proof that sometimes, once in a great many years, I have been known to make a mistake.

I’m just whining and railing against reality today.  Tomorrow will be better.
