Bomb Throwing Pacifist

If you took that happy, smiling guy from the box of Quaker Oats, handed him a bottle of gin and a rifle, and pissed him off to a point where he decided he wasn't going to take it anymore, you'd get a little something like this.

Christmas Weekend

Office Christmas party was yesterday. Good times, good times. We went to the Chinese restauraunt in the USAID building for lunch and man it was good. All the food we could eat for free, plus lots of Tsing Tao beer to wash it all down. Not to mention that I got my first paycheck. $450 for 31 hours work! Granted, it was only $405 after taxes, but I actually am one of those few Americans who are thankful for what the govennment does for them and as such don't mind paying taxes or sharing the wealth. Not to mention that I got a $100 Hecht's gift card! :) It's great to work for a progressive company with good liberal values. Conservative business owners, take note: if you pay your workers better and treat them as if they're important (and believe me, they are), somehow they tend to work better and give you all that loyalty you all spend so much time bitching about. Just a thought.

Heather is visiting us for the next few days and my dad pulled off the impossible and scored an extra tickets to the Corelli/Charpentier concert tonight! Score. We watched most of Steamboy last night and of course indulged in the fudgies and cookies she brought along. Good thing she knows what my parents (and especially my dad) like ;)

On an unrelated note, here's a new memo to all those who care about what's happening to this country right now. From now all, all references to conservatives and GOP are henceforth to be changed to the term monarchists as that seems to be a more accurate definition of their political views. I mean, their dynastic dear leader even has the right name for the job: George. It's only fitting really since they seem to believe in basically limitless executive power, the function of the judicial and legislative branches of goverment (which they both control, btw) as mere advisory boards to the president, the divine right of kings (er-presidents) and that the constitution is just "a goddamn peice of paper."

Now someone did point out that King George the W doesn't actually have any male children (that we know of) and that the possibility of a female succession might split the monarchists before they really have a chance to coalesce, but its ok. In that case, the succession would pass on to Jeb and he definately has male children. Granted, they seem to keep getting arrested for drunken and disorderly conduct and drug abuse but it's ok. As the monarchists themselves have shown so aptly: nothing that happens to you in the first 40 or 50 years of your life are allowed to count against you in your policitcal career later in life. Unless of course, you're a Democrat.

Now once more, with feeling. (Sung to the tune of "My Country 'Tis of Thee")

God save great George, our King,
Long live our noble King,
God save the King.
