"Bush confident bailout will stabilize economy"

can you imagine if he wasn't?! if he said, well, we're going to give them the $700 billion that they asked for after a week of fiddling around with the details, but heck if i know what it's gonna accomplish. i'm tired of arguing.

"strong and decisive action" with a reassuringly certain tone of voice and no admission of the smallest nuance. that has definitely not gotten us into any trouble before at all.

this election needs to be over and fast. i'm getting more jaded by the day.

1.) i'm going to get a cardboard cutout made of myself, so that i can take pictures of it with the cardboard cutouts of celebrities.

2.) so excited for sarah palin to meet bono.............................................................

(that was a very long pause.)

[edit: seriously? this is the AFP headline? "Bono, world leaders await Palin at UN."]

sometimes i wonder why i even have a cell phone in the first place considering i seem hell-bent on losing it or strategically avoiding places where i get reception.

{edit: it was lost while absent-mindedly cleaning, and my strategy of absent-mindedly cleaning AGAIN worked like a charm.}

i could have sworn unicorns had wings. turns out at best, they have cloven hooves, goatees and lion's tails, at worst, as pictured above, the only difference between a unicorn and a horse is that silly horn.

way to go, greece. your imaginations suck.

also: allll the crazies are in town. i'm hiding in my bomb shelter 'til it's over.

we'll go lay on a rooftop
breathe in the sweet smoke
and talk of a place that’s
so far from this one

take a walk with me tonight, my dear
away from complications
away from conditioned air

we'll get lost under covers
smile at our trite words
and fall for a vision
so far from the truth

take a walk with me tonight, my dear
away from complications
away from the flightless facts

LEMUR is the answer!!
