housekeeping saturday

Ach, two weeks in a row. I apologize.

It's not entirely housekeeping items, just a general what-the-heck-style mishmash of the things that have been running around my funkified brain this week.

Item 1: The Debate That Was Not.

So that happened. Or didn't. I told you I was going to review this, but really? Naahtgaahnahdoeht. That is me saying "Not gonna do it" just like George H.W. Bush. In case you didn't catch it. And why am I naahtgaahnahdoeht? Because it makes me tired, that's why, and I'm all worn out already from, well, the earlier part of the week.

However. One of my most favoritest bloggers, The Lovely Ms. Jennifer Mattern, Boss of Things at Breed 'Em and Weep, guest posted at Alpha Mom about a playdate at her house. If you found yourself poking your own eyes out with sharp kitchen implements, or hurling beer cans at the TV (heh, heh, all you Joe Six-Packs ooot thar), or just plain turning off the telly in disgust, I believe you will find true enjoyment in her post. Personally? I laughed loudly and obnoxiously... and ran to the bathroom twice. To pee, if you must know. I'm done with the barfing. Your life will only be enhanced by clicking over and reading what Ms. Mattern has to say.

Item 2, Oh Yes, Yes She Did:

I don't care what anybody has to say about this, I think it's swell that Angelina Jolie is breastfeeding on the cover of a swanky magazine. (I did not say "SWANK" magazine. That is a whole 'nother matter entirely. I'm not even going to link it. Hear that? It's the Googles finding me again!)

I will say? I wish I looked that hot whilst breastfeeding. Even if it only lasted long enough to get the shot. Actually, I'd take looking that relaxed and pleasant any day. I think the rest of the Dayton clan would take it, too.

Item The Third, It Seems She Did, Too, But She's Getting in Trouble For It:

I have said before that the only people who wink are liars and men who want to get laid. I would just like to extend my deepest thanks and appreciation to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin for proving me... CORRECT!

And you can read about the Troopergate Scandal here, here, here, here,....and pretty much anywhere else you look. You're all clearly quite intelligent, and I'm sure you can choose the news outlet that caters to your political leaning.

But one deep, probing question remains: Is she a liar? Or is she a man who wants to get laid? It seems the Committee is still out on that one. My personal opinion? She is a liar who works for a man who wants to get laid. Because statistically? He probably needs a little help in that department, if you know what I mean. Especially considering he's statistically dead.

Oh, and that photo? Belongs to the Associated Press. But everybody's using it, so I am, too.

Item The Fourth, Laundry Tree Loving, and This Is NOT Me Being A Paid Endorser, Just A *Thanked* Endorser:

Lisa, Supercool Lisa from Laundry Tree, sent me a fabulous thank you package in the mail, with tons and tons of soap nuts, and some nice oil, and extra baggies to hold my nuts (ooh, now you're jealous, with the mention of extra baggies for nut-holding). Those peeps over there are fantastic, and they think I'm terribly funny.

Happy Saturday. Have some pancakes.


  1. i just love this post. i believe sarah palin has just had her 15 minutes of fame. can the world get back to normal now?!

  2. Where I live (Texas Cattle Country) she is still queen. And homeschoolers I know think she is practically a saint. Of course, where I live people are still proudly displaying their "w" stickers. I am surrounded by the 25%. I feel like Alice in Wonderland only everyone else is on the magic mushrooms.

    When I heard about McCain's dating The Flame of Florida (stripper) in his younger days, and taking her to senate dinners to the thrill of the other senators and the dismay of their wives - I thought to myself, "and there he stands with Palin, who is every bit as exploited by McCain as the Flame of Florida was." See the thread, here? And this is supposed to attract feminists? I am thinking it has backfired. He brought her in to attract the very group that is now turning independents off with their lynch mob antics. He created a monster and now he can't control it.

    Now onto other topics - I have to get some soap nuts! Just when I think I have exhausted ways to freak out friends and family (nursed big kids in public - check, refuse to send kids to school - check, let said kids educate themselves - check, put Obama sign in my yard - check) I come across these little poo balls I can put in my washing machine!

    I am glad I found your blog!

  3. Great post! I love the Angelina cover. It's beautiful.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Pancakes. Yum. Thanks, now I'm craving pancakes.

  5. Sardine Mama - me TOO! Keep the faith.

    Also...hmm, how to say this? ..hmmm. I, well, I wink. Not on purpose though - I wink against my, um, in awkward situations where we southern women feel a strong need to make up for the awkwardness of it all by being overly - sugary sweet and gracious..and I, well, I as I shake a hand or as I shake my head yes..I'm sorry. I have no control over it. It's like that Belle deep down inside breaks out of her chains and says "Hey y'all, let me handle this! (and she winks)"..

  6. Nut holding and breast feeding. Beautiful. I wish I were half as pretty as La Jolie. Even before she was surgically enhanced. Bravo for her for showing the world it's natural and beautiful to breast feed.

  7. you are become quite popular with the masses! Way to go! I really just wanted to share my new picture with you! Congrats on your blogging popularity

  8. damn I can't type, that should read "you have become"

  9. Go Angelina! She just moved up a few notches in my book..

    Oh... and I wink too. I'm certainly not a liar.. so I guess that makes me a man who wants to get laid.. I guess I can live with that. ;) <- see, there's a wink for YOU.

  10. That is so not what I looked like while I was breastfeeding. Where the hell are all the smears of dried milk? Where is the oversized ripped t-shirt? Why does her hair look combed and her face look washed and her sleepiness look sexy instead of rabid? Fucking Angelina.

    She's my hero.

  11. Are you aware that the news you are watching is interlaced with Communist China's propaganda,as
    Communist China maps a realm of news with innocent lives?
    Communist China is scheming a millennial terrorist activity by manipulating people's behaviors
    through electromagnetic waves to contain criticism and harm innocent human lives.

    1. The anomaly in community traffic of cars and motorcycles and drag racing,and reckless honking by
    cars and motorcycles is exceeding an unprecedented level.
    2. Communist China has the technology to scan the human brain waves through military satellite and
    to discern and decipher their thoughts,scheming to instill individual interference focusing on
    each individual in need using the satellite electromagnetic waves.
    3. Deploying electromagnetic waves is poised to project onto the human brain with certain
    sounds for the perception of grossly traumatizing or startling pain,or deploying the broadcast
    of noise via electromagnetic waves in sleeping humans with edited clips of films or through
    voice or image signals onto our brains or besiege our sensory functions with fabricated
    audible and sensory illusions.
    4. It manipulates one's moods,such as smiling,nervousness,disgust,panic,anger,sorrow,
    desires,appetite,and so forth.
    5. It interferes the human brain's thinking capability,memory or linguistic capability,to name a
    few,causing spasms of muscles and fingers in the left and right hands,stinging aches
    throughout the body,coughing,yawning,trembling,involuntary blinking of the eye,runny
    nose and so forth.
    6. Electromagnetic waves are deployed to hinder the motoring functions of the body and neck,
    disrupt the heartbeat or respiration,manipulate dizziness,deprive one's sleep,spasm,saliva
    gland,dental neural pain,etc.
    7. Watch out that Communist China is infiltrating the news media by deploying electromagnetic
    waves to besiege the broadcast media,map out viral disillusion or erroneous perception,and
    investigate threats of brainwashing in viral spreading.
    8. It further moved to deploy various symptoms in what one sees of media icons,gesture terms,
    adding a skewed interpretation to one's cognitive awareness,misleading an individual to
    hallucinate or suffer,such as the North Korean's rigid smile,which is a tactic Communist
    China often deploys to counter the people.
    9. By observing the resolution accuracy of Communist China's sound and image (scenario)
    interference projected onto the human's brain,this can only be achieved with a certain level
    of frequencies at the source of interference,hence there is no doubt that it has to be the
    electromagnetic wave. Yet questions remain as to what range of frequencies the source of
    interference deploys,or what kind of electromagnetic waves insulation chamber would suffice
    to provide an insulation yield? Communist China might deploy specific metal alloys as small scale
    molecular antennas, which are attached to the human brain in large number,creating
    electromagnetic waves when the human brain is in function,where the current created by
    Communist China's electromagnetic interference would poise to amplify in a staggering
    number of multiplication,which Communist China can detect at all times to discern and
    muscles would excel the generation of electrode,which in turn create a corresponding
    electromagnetic wave within.
    10. Some of Communist China's intimidation experiences in 2002:6.9 "Hey,are you tired of living?"
    6.14 "We had concocted the bombing incident at the U.S. embassy in Pakistan"
    "Jiang Zhemin ordered us to kill you,but without creating scenes"6.16 "The Pakistani
    civilian troops confessed that they had schemed the bombing of the U.S. embassy in
    Pakistan,which we had manipulated them to confess,so what are you going to do about it?"
    6.19 "Hey,why don't you just go ahead and commit suicide""We are going to scheme
    murder using the public bus"6.20 "Commit suicide by burning charcoal,get it?"6.25 "Jiang
    Zhemin just does not like you,go hit your head against the wall".
    11. I reckon that there are victims abound out in the street,no less alarming than wars,and those
    not in the know or did not understand that Communist China's simple electromagnetic design
    could easily turn people against each other,create moving incidents,little lese to say mislead
    the youth to broach down the wrong path,suicidal prompting,design and fabrication of a host
    of society news (which Communication China refers to as movie making),as Communist China has had a
    decade long of the technology,and has long abused its technological advantages to scheme up design
    of abusing human lives by arranging fabricated news to poison and infiltrate the free
    world,manipulate and misguide the contents of the media,and deploy brainwashing and malicious
    spread of viruses,done with insinuation and riddles.The fact that Communist China's slaughtering
    the innocent had been the result of a high level of calculation,and a high level of rationalization,
    where the threats are in existence,and cannot be ignored of their detrimental severity.
    12. Communist China often coerce people to watch news compiled by the reporter Lu Yuling of the cable
    news in order for them to be saved,but few are aware that Communist China had merely deploy the
    reporter to entrap many people. I do envision that those that turn to committing crime as framed
    by Communist China,the extra sufferings by the ordinary people,and the deaths of many innocent
    lives will not go unnoticed as hindered by a condoning attitude.
    13. Nazi Hu Jintao, Jiang Zemin, Chinese Liberation Army, security police and armed police have committed suppression and massacre on their own civilians. Hu, Jiang and the other atrocious butchers owe these innocent civilians! More horrible and serious is that they are using mysterious killing technologies to cause harms to human brains around the world, making advantage of numerous international politicians and journalists to help them commit atrocities and beautify their actions, aiming to overturn and suppress those innocent people and cover up their terrorist acts and win fame by cheating the world. Securing in the knowledge that they have strong backing, these arrogant and shameless butchers have committed tortures and mass killing cruelly to those innocent ones around the world. Unfortunately, neither these politicians and nor journalists knowing what is what would dare to express their conscience.
    14. The inhumane acts and atrocities committed by Nazi China are far more vicious than that of Nanjing massacre in China during WWII committed by Japanese army, as Chinese government is using mysterious technologies to commit massacres to masses of bare-handed civilians around the world as well as launch violence and terrorist activities to suppress these completely unarmed people’s freedom of speech. These demons, like Hu, Jinag and Chinese Liberation Army, despise the chastity, dignity and precious life of those innocent ones and suppress the emotions of their beloved. Meanwhile, relying on the condition that most of people in the world will not be able to witness their vicious acts of violence and behaviors they have committed unscrupulously and shamelessly, these Chinese Liberation Army enjoys using cruel ways to torture, massacre and trample on these innocent people, physically and mentally, in one free world. The arrogant Hu, Jiang and those jackals nurtured under such ferocious power treat themselves as the symbol of benevolence and hero, as they fail to learn their gutless and vicious acts to trample on those innocent people. If these demons, butchers and dregs of human, such as Hu, Jiang and Chinese Liberation Army who have become frenzied and conscienceless appeared in the site of Nanjing massacre in WWII, they definitely would be the leading roles to act atrocities!
    15. We don’t want to see masses of innocent people to fall victim to the hell on earth built by red China where they will be susceptible to tortures and massacres for thousands of years.
    16. Despite being even unable to fend for themselves in face of the high-tech detriments and attacks from China, we can not tolerate the fact that these politicians and journalists will become the accomplices to help China commit its terrorist acts and suppression on these innocent people in the current era or an unknown future.
    17. In view of the notorious, vicious and sinister Hu, Jiang, Chinese Liberation Army with blood-stained hands, we just cast doubt over whether these greats of knowing what is what who have negotiated with these demons will show their conscience to save these innocent civilians or will act just for the sake of their profits, or are under the control of China. In this current drowned world, how will these innocent lives be treated in face of the atrocious acts committed by these diabolical figures, or when these innocent people will witness the practice of democracy in China? Will these phenomena turn out to be the joint efforts and endeavors achieved by China and those powerful figures in the world? Are we really dedicated to overturning such adversity? Our goal is to eliminate the vicious power one day with our strenuous efforts, and we absolutely will achieve it!

  12. That last comment was . . . something.

    Anyway, I'd give a zillion bucks to be Angelina Jolie's baby . . .

    Did I just type that?! Oops . . .

  13. Wow. That was some spam! Jill actually called me about the supersecret Chinese info posted here. Thanks for the education, Mr. or Ms. WhoeverYouAre. You crazy, Chinese mindreaders.

    That would be a fun series to have, no? The Crazy Chinese MindReader Tells What You're Thinking. Fabulous.

  14. Why the fascination with something as mundane as breastfeeding? Does Angelina's left breast really warrant being on the cover of a magazine?

    Soapnuts are great.

  15. Wow. I think I had a comment, but then I read the other ones. And then my mind went blank. And then boobies. So there. You read my mind.


talk to me, people. because you know i get all giddy when you do.
