abbey and oskar...

for having two different dads, my two kids look a lot alike as babies...

they aren't clones or anything, but for being half-sibs, they are pretty similar.

holy crap. CANNOT WAIT UNTIL NOV. 25!

some info from MomentFactory on how they did what they did for NIN's shows (interactive stage shows)... 3:07 will freak your shit, but the whole thing is kick ass.

this is where a fella from MomentFactory explains the magic... 3:34 is especially interesting.

one year.

oskar is sleeping in the sling right now and the poor kid's head is damp from my weepy nature. bram embodied unconditional love and friendship. i know i'm not alone when i say that a part of me is missing since he left.

i want to slap that wink off of her face.
"hockey moms and joe sixpacks..."

i can't even BEGIN to express my hatred right now. especially when i KNOW there are houses in this country where, in the tv room, there is some douchebag yelling, "yeah! let's hear it for us joesixpacks! wooo!" (my money is on his face being painted for a sports team.)

i do, however, enjoy watching mccain wander around aimlessly during a townhall meeting.


laura ingraham just called the leader of iran "far left" on the fox network, when discussing why these "far left" guys like obama.

that's what we get for turning on the fox channel to just see what the crazies are saying.

some oskar footage...


debate #2 facts.

real-time, completely biased debate commentary.

mccain told an audience member that he had (the audience guy) probably "never heard of them (fannie mae and freddie mac) before this crisis." crappy assumption that the average "joe six-pack" wouldn't know of those companies. i knew of them as an 18 year old getting a student loan.

mccain: a $5000 tax credit for health care -- that goes DIRECTLY to the insurance company -- and then you still have to make up for the other roughly $7000 for health care? oh, and your health benefits are TAXED? gross. oh, i can cross state lines to get health care? THAT'S convenient. i'm sure THAT won't cause any corporate red-tape kind of shit. i can barely get things approved from my company that is IN THIS VERY CITY.

i don't know how much more of this i can take.

some quick thoughts before bed...

not much time to write lately --- funny how caring for an infant can eat up time. here are some things on my brain...

1. sarah palin. you evil, evil thing. just because you didn't vomit all over yourself at the podium DOES NOT MEAN that you tied in the debate, let alone WON the debate. and i'm sick of people who think otherwise.
2. again, sarah palin. shame, shame on you. for so many reasons.
3. and to you john mccain -- shame on you. you could run a clean, slander-free campaign, but you didn't. you are selling your soul and it's shameful.
4. tina fey, i want to be like you when i grow up.
5. this is neither here nor there, but oskar is sleeping next to me right now and his little bare feet are on my arm. awww....
6. i have the best kids in the world.

must sleep.

did you happen to see...

... the most beautiful girl in the world?

can't wait to watch thursday night's freak show!

excerpt from katie couric interview with palin:

Couric: And when it comes to establishing your worldview, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this to stay informed and to understand the world?

Palin: I've read most of them, again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media.

Couric: What, specifically?

Palin: Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me all these years.

Couric: Can you name a few?

Palin: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news, too. Alaska isn't a foreign country, where it's kind of suggested, "Wow, how could you keep in touch with what the rest of Washington, D.C., may be thinking when you live up there in Alaska?" Believe me, Alaska is like a microcosm of America.

i think she realized that answering honestly to the magazine question -- Redbook, Family Circle, Better Homes & Garden -- MIGHT shoot down her credibility as a world leader.

And asked about reports that one of the churches she attends has encouraged gays to become straight, Palin referred again to her own life. "I am not going to judge Americans and the decisions that they make in their adult personal relationships," she said. "I have ... one of my absolute best friends for the last 30 years who happens to be gay. And I love her dearly. And she is not my gay friend, she is one of my best friends who happens to have made a choice that isn't a choice that I have made."

a CHOICE! see? if you don't wanna be gay, just CHOOSE not to be! SIMPLE! and if you are gay, it's because you've CHOSEN it.
