This is a crude post.

Crude oil flowing from BP’s Deepwater Horizen oil rig explosion has started washing up on Louisiana’s shores.  Last night rough seas pushed oily water over the protective booms standing between the on-coming oil and Louisiana’s coasts.  Oil has entered the Mississippi River and is spreading into the river’s offshoots and surrounding wetlands, and toxic chemicals from the oil are …

Pay It Forward Day

Remember that Haley Joel Osment Pay It Forward movie?  Did you know that an entire social movement has sprung up around the concept of “paying it forward”?  From the Pay It Forward Foundation’s website: The premise of the novel Pay It Forward is one that any person can implement in his or her own life, …

Odds and Ends

Things that make me sad: Oil slicks in the Gulf of Mexico and the Great Barrier Reef.  I’m just getting my SCUBA certification this spring – quite screwing up the pretty diving areas! The Party of Hell No! – Republicans who like to look tough when they’re grilling Goldman Sachs executives, but who vote no to discussing Wall Street …

In the Wake of Boobquake

The results of Boobquake 2010 are in! Jen from blaghag.com did a statistical analysis of the number and severity of earthquakes that occured across the globe yesterday. Sadly, ladies, it looks like we don’t have boob/butt/leg/ankle/hair magic that can control plate tectonics.  From blaghag.com (click here for larger image): Each data point represents the total …

A Call to Boobs

So I haven’t yet posted about the viral awesomeness that is Boobquake.  Jen M. McCreight from the BlagHag blog has started a protest movement called Boobquake 2010.  Boobquake was created on April 19th – last Monday – and holy crap has a lot happened in a measly week.  If you want to follow the entire hullabaloo, start reading Jen’s …

Weekend Report: Kick Ass and Psycho Suzi’s

I saw Kick Ass this weekend with a bunch of coworkers from the bookstore, and I LOVED it.  Seriously, I heart Hit Girl – she’s one of the baddest ass action heroes that I’ve ever seen.  Check her out, but not at work because much like Hit Girl herself, this video is violent and crude. …

Vree Vree: A Horror Story

Vreee, Vreeeeee!   That’s what I think a dentist drill sounds like.  And this isn’t really a horror story, so much as a gross, annoying story.  I set my alarm for 5am this morning so that I could be on time for a 7am appointment with the dental hygienist.  I didn’t drink any coffee because I thought …

In memory of those lost 15 years ago.

Today is the fifteenth anniversary of of the Oklahoma City Alfred P. Murrah federal building bombing. 168 people died, 680 were injured and $652 million in damage was done. I’m taking a moment to remember those who were affected by bombing, and to reflect on the consequences of hatred, intolerance, and the belief that violence …

Teabaggin’ for Geezus

I’m off to the gym (mmm…hot tub…), then brunch with some friends at the Independent in Uptown, followed by a shift at the bookstore. Two outta three ain’t bad. Today, I bring you the satirical stylings of Edward Currant.  WARNING: This video is mean, a little rude, and dare I say vicious and relentless?  But, …
