Textual harrassment? It's a scary thing when it's happening. I have a very good friend who I swapped cell phones with overnight so we could get her number changed out so the bastard wouldn't be able to reach her that way... but so she'd still be able to dial 911 in case of emergency, because he'd rented the apartment directly below hers and stalked her in the hallways, as well.
Where there's an ill, there's a way.
Father of the year?
(I'll tell you this -- if I'd been at that party and Darling Daddy had caught wind of it, that guy would have been a dead man.)
John Kass of the Chicago Tribune is having a little contest regarding the title of the Blagoviator's coming tome. I know some of my bloggitty buddies will take this and run a mile with it.
Update: Here's my own submission:
"Hot Air and Great Hair: The F*&^king Golden Governor"_____
Ah! There was, indeed, a black agenda:
Before President Obama won his campaign, he spoke to a group of African-American journalists and assured us that the "black agenda" would not be ignored under an Obama administration.But it's white folks who are prejudiced. Uh huh.
Obama recently established an office of urban affairs, naming Carrion czar and appointing Derek Douglas, another former New York official, to serve as a special assistant to the president for urban affairs.
I'm not sure how that's supposed to work. But it's pretty clear Carrion is being rewarded for helping Obama reach Latino voters during the presidential campaign.
Don't get me wrong. I appreciate that Obama did not forget his promise to elevate urban affairs on the national agenda once he arrived at the White House.It's nice to see that Ms. Mitchell judges people by the content of their character (not to mention their qualifications), not the color of their skin.
I only wish he had checked the politics at the door.
Dr. King is spinning like a top in his grave.
Now we need a little palate cleanser. This should do nicely.
What an incredibly sweet kid.
Eye-Popping Quote of the Day:
Rather than tossing the placenta after birth, Selander's site suggests burying it and planting a tree on the spot or even shaping the umbilical cord into a heart or wreath that, once dried, will leave "you with a lasting keepsake to remember this momentous time in your life."Yuck. That'll have me all squicked out for the rest of the month.
Use a straw??? Not with my WillaKenzie, I won't. Philistine!

A couple of Blogthings, just because I can:
You Are CURVES AHEAD
When you're confronted with a problem, you take it on immediately - but with your eyes wide open.
You deal with stress well. You take things as they come, and you don't panic.
In fact, you often enjoy challenging situations. Difficulty makes you feel alive.
You are alert and observant. You notice every twist and turn in the road.
You Would Be a Crafty Superhero
You are naturally curious and even a bit of a snoop. You like to have dirt on everyone - both enemies and friends.
You need a lot of freedom in your life. You like to do your own thing, and you don't fit into any normal mold.
You understand people quite well and often know what others are thinking. Because of this, you can get people to do what you want.
You tend to feel apart from the rest of the world. You don't really fit in, and you don't try to!
You are a true intellectual. You are thirsty for knowledge, and you are curious about the world.
