Frankly, I’m ready for a president who canoodles with Khalidi. Isn’t it time?

Then again, y’all know my politics, and also probably about the framed Rabin/Arafat picture I grew up with in my parents’ home.

Shepard Fairey was in Boston last week and did this piece right outside my house.

Books of the States

In book talk on October 21, 2008 at 12:45 pm

I’ve been lovin’ Amazon’s book blog Omnivoracious for several months now, namely because it’s written by people who are really geeked about reading. In honor of our Beloved Electoral College they’ve been doing a regular books of the states feature, which I find to be completely adorable.

A 21st Century Break-Up

In facebook, GMail on October 20, 2008 at 7:58 pm

Over the weekend Lovr Boy and I got into a little tiff, which started out over some passive aggressive, vitriolic, ‘I-don’t-want-to-date-you-you-meanie!’ GMails to each other and escalated to me changing his Facebook password [LOL? or Actually Psychotic? You be the judge!].

Upon discovering this, I received this email:

wtf? di you change my facebook paswrd? [sic]

Sigh. The Youth of Today.

[and for the record, all’s well that ends well. I am his, he is mine, we are what we are, etc. Make up and make out, as I always say]

Simon (top) and Abe (bottom) were rescued from a hoarding situation by MSPCA Angell and we adopted them this past Tuesday. They love to purr and eat Pounce® kitty treats. Abe does NOT like the smell of Tapatío hot sauce and Simon likes to sleep on my scarf.

Paul Collins’ piece in The Believer last month was one of the most delightful things I have read in awhile.

If money were no object

Behold. While other people’s finances are plummeting into the ocean, I am preparing for the so-called “Humanolypse” [c/o Baby Boy] by learning to make Gnocchi. I did my first run last night and it went better than expected. I am going to try again tonight. It is ever bit as labor intensive as they say it is. I think pasta-making will be a marketable skill in a world where bartering overtakes Wall Street. Capice??
