Best Friday Dose of Woo Ever – or Should That Be Worst?

Orac occasionally reposts some of his classic Insolence, which is a good thing – especially when he reposts something so mind-meltingly five-alarm Woo that I wonder where it’s been all my life.  This bit of classic Insolence alternatively made me laugh, cry and howl.  I ended up starting silently at my computer screen in numb …

Photos to Delight and Entertain You

Just because it’s Saturday, and we could all use something light and cheerful. Neil Gaiman has finally been spotted on ROFLRAZZI: And Brian Switek found the cutest baby Apatosaurus in the entire universe: Hee. It looks like it’s trying to say its first word! And, in wonderful news, our own Suzanne was on teevee with …

As For Being Shrill, Strident, Etc.

Once again, the “tone” argument’s making the rounds (does it ever cease?  It circles like a dog attempting to capture its own fugitive tail).  Ophelia Benson’s already pointed out a few of the more annoying examples.  And she led me to this delightful bit by Jason Rosenhouse, which comes just in time, because a dear …

Adventurous Outtakes

I shall not bore you with the sordid details of my life, but just say: it’s chaos here.  So no geology just yet.  I’ll have something up by Saturday, after carving out some research time. In the meantime, let us have some outtakes from Monday’s outing.  My intrepid companion and I had plans.  Oh, yes.  …

Dumbfuckery du Jour

I know, I know, there’s plenty of Con dumbfuckery to bash.  But let’s face facts: we already know they’re a bunch of remarkable dumbfucks who shouldn’t be trusted with pointy scissors, much less public office.  And besides, Mary Landrieu’s probably headed for their ranks just as soon as she forgets that the Teabagging masses don’t …

New Geology Coming Soon

Just got done putting over 200 miles on the car and a few miles on the legs.  After I’ve had a good sleep, I shall tell thee all about it.  In the meantime, here’s a photo from today’s outing: And, while we’re at it, and because the cat doesn’t believe it’s bedtime yet, here’s a …

Cleaning and Creativity

Cleaning day is a very dangerous day. After taking Silmë for a walk (okay, drive), during which I picked up business cards from my favorite dealer and got reassured I’d made an excellent car-buying choice, I decided it’s time to excavate the house.  And yes, I do mean excavate.  Part of this enterprise involved vacuuming.  …
