Where does the good go

Conversation of the Day

Alceste: According to Karol this is the most exciting vice presidential pick ever!
Me: No, just of her lifetime.
Alceste: Ah yes, I had forgotten the groundbreaking choice of Andrew Johnson in 1860…yes, I will be playing the role of Von Bek this evening.

    Are you aware that you’re missing Gay Aiken on Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader? I only know this because SMU is down 56-21 against Rice at the start of the 4th Qtr.

    BTW, have you seen Nanook of the North? If you spend the night with the Eskimos, it’s considered good manners to share their wives with you. However, when your gallbladder goes bad, they sit your ass on an ice flow.

    I feel like a geek, but that made me laugh and laugh.

  4. Dawn Summers Says:

    Me too…but I am a geek…so that probably doesn’t make you feel better.

  5. Karol Says:

    Do you have a more exciting vp pick? Edwards? He was exciting, we just didn’t know it then.

    It’s Greek to me, but this stuff is priceless:

    The Idiossey

    The Not-Really-That-Epic Poem of Obamacles

    (with Apologies to Homer)

    Book the First: A question for the Muse

    Speak to me, O Muse, of this resourceful man
    who strides so boldly upon the golden shrine at Invescos,
    Between Ionic plywood columns, to the kleig light altar.
    Fair Obamacles, favored of the gods, ascends to Olympus
    Amidst lusty tributes and the strumming lyres of Media;
    Their mounted skyboxes echo with the singing of his name
    While Olbermos and Mattheus in their greasy togas wrassle
    For first honor of basking in their hero’s reflected glory.
    Who is this man, so bronzed in countenance,
    So skilled of TelePrompter, clean and articulate
    whose ears like a stately urn’s protrude?
    So now, daughter of Zeus, tell us his story.
    And just the Cliff Notes if you don’t mind,
    We don’t have all day.
