Disaster Relief

Filed under: Politics — mlah @ 7:53 pm

quick.

now that katrina has wrought her carnage on the gulf coast, how many nations are going to offer us some disaster relief?

you remember? the same nations who crowed so loudly about our stinginess during the tsunami aftermath?

where are the french to offer us a helping hand? they speak french after all by our good graces. see how they pay us back.

nada. nilch. zero.

i’ll be shocked if anyone helps at all.

Katrina

Filed under: Misc — mlah @ 6:48 pm

one of my two nieces is named katrina. everyone calls her katy.

i like to call her katrina, because i think it sounds cooler than katy. there are loads of katy’s running around.

katrina is kind of not a name you hear everyday.

katrina doesn’t like me calling her katrina. she much prefers katy.

seems that katrina is her ‘getting in trouble’ name

she deals with them well.

she also talks about the age old problem for the wait staff.

Mail Order Brides

Russian Mail Order Bride

those of you who actually know me, know that i don’t have a girlfriend (right now). some of you kid me about mailing off to russia for a girl. some of you i kid about mailing off to russia for a blonde.

some of you are appalled at the idea.it’s always been a bit of a joke to me.

i mean, don’t y’all get spam too? or am i the only target of mailorder brides?

i heard a bud light commercial on the radio the other day, y’all know the series. the real men of genius series. there’s a really funny one about ‘mr spf 80 sunblock wearer’. they say that just in case the sun fails to go down, you’ll be prepared. and then that ‘your personal force field keeps out all of the suns rays, and any ambient rays…. from other suns….. in other galaxies.’

FSU Seminoles

so did you hear about this crap?

the ncaa decided to do a little study about racism in sports mascots after they studied whether or not to allow sporting events in states that allow the confederate flag.

confederate flag issue aside.

is there anyone besides the u of cal santa cruz banana slugs that don’t have to worry?
