February 2010

They really should try to get in better shape.

Obviously, I’m getting in the mood for the big hockey game. But just watching the skiers makes me wince in empathetic pain, and at the Olympic level it is an amazing thing to appreciate from a sheer physical condition standpoint. You just don’t see a lot of large or small muscle groups getting a pass.

Update: Kudos to the Canadiens, kudos to the Americans (they had their chances) and kudos to Miller. The game of hockey, played tough and skillfully, is a wonder to watch. Especially if you’ve ever tried to play it.

And, for the permanent archives, I would like to go on record as saying these were the best actual physical medals I can remember seeing, winter or summer: Large, simple, elegant, and handsome. They’re beautiful.

Too tired to live or care. Great day in the John O household. He actually manages to look ugly in this picture, uncovered junk and all, but really he is quite handsome.

Rag Doll City

And a duh.

Gaffney, as I’ve noted before, is an instant channel-changer guest for me. Bat shit nuts. That he is taken seriously is a national embarrassment.

Watching other people genuinely laugh. It’s also sort of heartwarming. Don’t you remember your inappropriate group giggle fits as some of the finest moments of your life?

So I got a big kick out of watching Colbert bust L. Vonn’s gut.

Update: My uncontrollable giggle fits always felt like God to me. Completely and happily out of control. In the moment, as it were.

I love this stuff truly. Maybe because it’s the essence of resolution through conflict, which I believe is how things work in general.

I suppose I’m doing all right and that’s that, but the power Corporate Man has over us, including our health care, is a frightening thing indeed.

I’m right with DougJ on this one. The Wall St. behavior and success sealed the deal for me.


I think they're fond of each other

Edging closer:

Well within smell range

This dude cracks me up.

You know what they say about people who are made REALLY uncomfortable by homosexuality…

Son, just go suck a dick and see if you like it. It will save everyone a lot of trouble, including you.

Not near as much fun as I can do when I figure out how to work this thing.

Update: “I am NOT a MORON!” More to follow, and more fun, hopefully. Pretty cool little device. I didn’t open it 30 minutes ago, and that’s shot in pretty low light.

A little better. Battery charged.

P.S. The optics will be interesting if Obama pulls HCR out of the death-spiral it seemed to be in. If he/they don’t front-load some “this is good for me’s” they are effed no matter what, the GOP will make things even harder to pass after the ’10 elections, via their standard savage demagoguery, and maybe we’ll get closer the next time.

Starting to end their journey to Cuddleville.

Warmth, after the battle
