Wonkette - backwards engineering foreign policy

OK, OK - I *am* more liberal than conservative. But you have to admit, this visual montage is pretty funny, whatever your politics.

I'm stealing from Mickey Kaus at Slate for this link. Hope to return the favor sometime.

Photo of Fitty Cent performing at a Bat Mitzpah

Yes, this urban man clearly in touch with the streets he came from, was not averse to performing a shout out at a 13-year-old's birthday party. Thank you, camera cell phones for this photo of Fitty, performing away.

I can't help but agree with the writers of TheSuperficial, who say
"It doesn't matter how many times you've been shot and how many gangster rap albums you've sold, because the second you perform at a little girl's bat mitzvah you're automatically a lame little sissy girl. 50 Cent could've strangled a bear with his bare hands, but from now on he'll forever be remembered as that pansy who performed at some rich girl's bat mitzvah."
Interestingly, he wasn't alone, though; the crew from Aerosmith and Don Henley were there too. I guess $500K will buy a lot of respect at the old folks home.

Roswell man beaten in home invasion |


APPARENTLY one of my neighbors got beat up. Or beat down. Or beat sideways.

How very comforting. Wait - didn't I once write about something like that?

Hey - that's right! I completely forgot about *this* prediction. Wow... I guess my predictive powers are pretty good, but only if the guy who got jacked is really Osama Bin Laden. Or Janet Jackson's breast.

In other news...

Just wanted to let you all know, (yes, even *you*, Gisele Bundchen...) that I have offically jumped headfirst back into the dating pool. Or something.

I guess it shouldn't be *too* weird for me, seeing as how it's only been *10 years* since I went on a first date. Ok... a little weird. {grin}

"But Sean," some of the more observant of you say, "what about those *other* dates that you had the past few months? They certainly seem at least a *little* more recent that 10 years ago."

"Ah," I respond to the budding Seanologist. "Those don't count. A) I knew the ladies ahead of time, and B) the subject of the most successful of them moved to another state to live with another man less than two weeks after our second 'date.' That's right - I drove her not only to another man, but indeed another Senate District."

I sent a response to something I read on Craigslist, under the woman-seeking-man portion. I would post which one I responded to, but I am afraid that Leo DiCaprio (a regular lurker on this blog) woud try to steal her from me. I'll let you know how it works out.

Two notes for EverBabe -

1) Looks like we didn't win Mega Millions... so no Hurley problems for us. Phew.

2) This is a Best of Craigslist that made me laugh out loud- possibly because it made me think of you. I don't like taking a dump at someone else's house.

My grandmother's b-day.

A very fine lady, who has just turned 88 today. That's reasonably old. Just wanted to point this out.

My favorite quote from our conversation tonight: (and she was having second thoughts about saying it even as it was coming out of her mouth;)
"Sean, I have always felt that, of all of our many grandchildren, you have clearly most improved from when you were younger."

WooHoo! I'm just sorry that I am not still getting report cards - that would fit in perfectly. (altho it *is* year-end review time here at my company....)

Urban Legends Reference Pages: Photo Gallery (Finnegan the Squirrel)

Warning - disgustingly cute pictures of puppies and squirrels on the other side of the jump.

Updated photo of Sean - post halloween.

Many people (OK, two) have asked to get a picture of what I look like now sans hair. Well, here you go.
