i'm feeling fairly worn out right now, both mentally and physically, so posting will be spotty. too much to do and not enough time, energy or brain power to handle everything this week. something's gotta give.

the wonderous effects of brain candy

from Mighty Girl:

"This weekend, I actually paid to see the new Jennifer Lopez movie, and then snuck into the Hillary Duff movie (which is surprisingly easy when you and all of your cohorts have been old enough to drink for a decade or so). The first movie made my brain all gummy and warm. Half way through the second movie, little bits of my grey matter had liquified and begun to slip silently from my ears."

doo dee doo doo, doo dee doo doo, 2.0

this weekend while chatting with laurie (my sister-in-law and midwife extraordinaire) she was mentioned a client who had a baby girl a few years ago and named her quinn.

guess what the other name she had picked out for a girl was?


and guess what our other name was for a girl.

yup, you guessed it. quinn.

jon stewart on the incident: "Here's the thing about confronting someone on their show. They're there. Uncomfortable!"

final debate closings in a nutshell

from Wonkette:

10:28PM: Kerry closing speech: 'Sound bite, sound bite, aspirational sound bite, hand gesture, God bless America, kill terrorists.'
10:30PM: Bush closing speech: 'God, education, sound bite, blink, compassion, pander, blink, pander, God, terror, blink, blink, liberty, God, terror, I rock.'

doo dee doo doo, doo dee doo doo

i've always thought dooce was great, now i'm convinced she'a a mind reader because i was just thinking about this

things to do when you're bored:

  • cut your hair
  • change your hair color
  • change the title of your blog
  • make decadent desserts

for your information, i have done all but one, but i'm feeling the need to color my hair and it could happen any minute now.

more recent debate schtuff

from wonkette: play by play from the veep debate

old debate schtuff

from angry john sellers:

"...since tonight is the first presidential debate, I will enter the fray and ask two questions I hope the candidates answer. For John Kerry: Why do you look so much like the talking tree thing from the Lord of the Rings movies? For George Bush: Will you accept my challenge of a thumb war, the winner taking the Halliburton profits from Iraq? I could probably buy my own domain name with that, and let's face it, I'd kick your bony, entitled, Cheney-humping ass any day of the year."
