yuck and double yuck

1.







Looks like a plastic Lambert/Ken doll. I thought it was pretty gross. And then I stumbled upon this:

Just released art for the cover of his new album. It's not even a joke, and that's the saddest part.

it just occurred to me

I was just browsing the recent content of my blog, and I realized that this blog o' mine has become a place of venting. While venting is nice for me, I'm not sure it is necessarily nice for you, and I wonder if it is occupying far too much of the content of my blog. So I apologize because I don't want to be seen as a nasty negative Nancy. Mainly, I just like to get things off my mind, and once I've done that, I feel much better about it. This is not to say I won't ever vent about things on my blog again, but simply to say that I'll try to mix in some hearts and rainbows and fuzzy kittens now and then.

would life be easier if I had lower expectations?

I just called a company to ask a question. Of course I was greeted with a press-a-number recording. How could I expect a human to answer these days? Once I pressed 3 for 'speak with a representative,' I was told by electronic robot lady, "Your expected wait time is less than {pause} 34 {pause} minutes. There are {pause} 93 {pause} callers in front of you."


I hung up after a moment of evaluating my life and deciding my question wasn't worth it. Maybe that's their whole strategy.


Needless to say it was a government agency. Therefore, I blame Obama.
