Tuesday Musings

The day is young, but I am not. Let's roll.

I woke up this morning to find that ACORN had deposited 87 pro-Franken ballots under my pillow. I have filed an appeal to have the votes included in the final tally. It's true that most of the ballots are just slips of paper with a curly-haired stick figure drawn on them, but I must make sure the votes of Mickey Mouse and the seven year old down the street are counted. DEMOCRACYYYY!!!!




Paid a visit to Chai's Thai over the weekend. It's fun, in a reminds-me-of-a-real-city-restaurant sort of way. The food is good (not Bahn or Ruam Mit good, but good), and very affordable. The best part? It's BYO for alcohol with no corkage fee. I would exchange half the bars in this city for that option.

Also, my Pad-Thai-only wife rates Chai's Pad Thai among the best in town. I thought they were a bit over-sauced, but she's the expert.


So much for the conservative revolution. The only Republican running against John Boehner is fellow crap-eater Dan Lungren of California. I have a $1.25 restocking fee due with Blockbuster video. Can I have a bailout?

What a monumentally stupid country this has become.


Open question: How did Africans figure out how to become pirates? It's pirate-mania over there. Do they wear eyepatches? That would be awfully endearing, though I'm sure the French will support them either way. Yarrrrgh....


Seriously, though, damn pirates.


Fantasy Football!!!!!

I blame the piracy on Johhny Depp and translation of "Pirates of the Caribbean" into African languages.

You could have a sequel, where Depp runs into a time portal, and encounters a band of pirates led by Don Cheadle.

whatever the final verdict on acorn's efforts this election season, i for one hope they change their name... it's just odd when your acronym is the nut from an oak tree.

also, i'm currently perfect on my pre-election senate prediction of 7 pickups for the Ds: Merkley, Warner, Begich, Hagan, Shaheen, Udallx2). if franken ends up winning the recount, it will really screw up my political consulting fees for the next two years.

Anonymous is pretty close to the mark. They learned their pirating ways from bootleg Pirates of the Caribbean and Cutthroat Island DVDs.
