Off to camp

Danielle is off to [place] this week.  Rather than [verb ending in “ing”] to the US Mail, the school had us give [plural noun] to them and mark which day they should [verb] it.  Since we were supposed to avoid saying things like “I [verb] you” I decided to do [a number] of my letters in mad-lib format.  I think she will be [verb ending in “ed”] and think that her father is [adjective].

She will take [a vehicle] back to [place] on [day of the week].  I’m sure she will be [adjective] and [adjective] when she gets home.

Monday Mosquito Eater

Here is a nice picture of a spider playing the role of mosquito eater.


I’m thinking that the spider is more likely eating a mosquito eater, but I don’t want to start an argument.

  • Tina Fey was surprisingly effective in last night’s VP debate.  I still don’t want her as VP, but I could see her performance winning over some people.  I did laugh/snort thing when she said she was for woman’s rights.  The irony of someone saying they support woman’s rights when 24-48 hours earlier she told Couric she would be opposed to legalized abortions even in the case of incestuous rape of a 15 year old was way too much.  Of course if it really was Tina Fey, that may have explained the slip up.
  • Spammers have figured out how to use twitter.  Twitter notifies you via email when someone starts following you – the spammers use this to get you to look at their twitter site which links to their porn site, etc.
  • I may be battling AT&T shortly.  Brenda’s phone sucks, and both our 3G phones drop calls with high regularity.  As cool as the iPhone is, if it can’t make a phone call, I’m not interested in it.  I am attempting to swap out Brenda’s phone, but if AT&T gives me a hard time, I may turn in all 3 phones and give up.
  • My new computer refused to power up this morning, so I have that to deal with too.

Palin Balin’

Most news sites are reporting that Sen. Joe Biden from Delaware and Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska, the vice presidential nominees of the Democratic and Republican parties, respectively, will debate each other at 8 p.m. (CDT) Oct. 2 in the Washington University in St. Louis Athletic Complex, according to the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD). EGI News reporter Gil Le Bell has uncovered that this is no longer the case.A certain Arizona Senator running for President who asked not to be named gave Gil the inside scoop about Thursday night’s Vice Presidential Debate.

Gil: Thank you for meeting with me today Senator, I know your schedule is very busy.

Senator: No problem Gil. I always make time for EGI. Even when I was a POW I made time for EGI.

Gil: So tell me, are you concerned at all about Sarah Palin going into Thursday’s debate.

Senator: I admit that I was more than a little worried, with all her miscues and use of word salad even when asked a simple question like what newspapers does she read. Of course I didn’t have news papers when I was a POW, but apparently she couldn’t answer that. Anyway, we’ve worked around any concerns about her debate performance.

Gil: Really, how so?

Senator: Well, I was watching Saturday Night Live, and asked my aide why no one informed me that Sarah was doing the show. He said that he hadn’t been informed either, but pointed out how much better she was doing than usual. Later we found out that it wasn’t really Sarah Palin, but actually an actress named Tina Fey.

Senator: Anyway, long story short, we got on the phone with Ms. Fey and convinced her to do the debate instead. She is obviously more articulate than Sarah, and I really don’t think anyone will notice it’s not her.

Gil: That sounds like a winning plan.

Senator: If it works out as well as we expect, Ms. Fey may start doing all Sarah’s interviews for her.

Gil: Why have Sarah on the ticket at all then.

Senator: She appeals to our core voters base… urges.
