Sometimes general rants, sometimes specific rants. Sometimes pants. You spins the wheel, you takes yer chance!

A non partisan message

The whole catastrophe is that Sarah Palin has been getting me down lately, but thank God for Tina Fey and Amy Pohler, they always make me smile...

"Shut the hell up!"

Keith Olbermann, angry man.

"It is not, Mr. Bush, about your golf game! And, sir, if you have any hopes that next Jan. 20 will not be celebrated as a day of soul-wrenching, heart-felt thanksgiving, because your faithless stewardship of this presidency will have finally come to a merciful end, this last piece of advice:

When somebody asks you, sir, about Democrats who must now pull this country back from the abyss you have placed us at ...

When somebody asks you, sir, about the cooked books and faked threats you foisted on a sincere and frightened nation ...

When somebody asks you, sir, about your gallant, noble, self-abdicating sacrifice of your golf game so as to soothe the families of the war dead.

This advice, Mr. Bush: Shut the hell up!"

Well hello there!

This is my brand new goddaughter Caitlin. I think it's safe to say that she is the most beautiful little thing ever. This is just a close-up, in real life she is extremely teensy. She was born last Tuesday, weighing in at 6 pounds 2 ounces, and finally giving her mama a break after six hours in labour. I just get to do all the fun stuff like play with her and buy her snuggly things and the like!

Do you think she looks like her big brother, way back when?

New doggie!

This is Kaiser, he is 14 weeks old. He lives down on the ranch with the parentals and Sib 2, and he is the cutest thing ever! Yes he is! Yes yes yes!

(I'm like this all the time when I'm with him. One brother says I'm making a baby of the puppy, the other says I'm making him gay.)

Isn't he lovely though?!

Spring starts with hypothermia in the office, the heating has been broken for the past few days, and I’m looking at my breath and wiping the frost off my keyboard and not exaggerating one little bit, no, not at all.

Recent haircut misunderstanding results in complete scalping. Conversations about the current job hunt now all include jokes about joining the Marine Corps. People are FUNNY. You never appreciate the insulating properties of a head of hair until it’s gone, and then suddenly snow is forecast…

“If you could change one thing about yourself, what would that be?”

My readiness to answer such a dumb question. January is tough enough without voluntarily throwing your life into chaos! (yeah yeah, I know I could lose a bit of weight…)

A clean sweep

Jo returned from LA over Christmas, and called in to the office last week, so we scooted around the corner to the pub. It was great to see her again, and we were joined by a few of the other kids that have moved on to new jobs since. I was all smiley and full of praise for impromptu midweek pints when I went to the loo and spied this brush convention at the bottom of the stairs...

So! I will make no promises for 2008, because that always blows up in my face. I will just wish you all a Happy New Year, and if you're in the mood, give you a big squishy hug too.

Baby Cheeses

I made this little fella last week for Steve's Party for the Baby Jesus. Can't take credit really, I'm ripping off Kath and Kim!

Ain't Christmas prep a stinker? I'm all stressed! Sometimes you really have to take a step back and remember what this time of year is really all about...

(first person to say "cheese" goes straight to hell)
