I think you only get one 'Snowpocalypse' a year,...
After that you have to wait 12 months before you can call another storm that. I think ‘Snowmageddon’ is probably free, and I’m sure you could do something with ‘Ragnarok’. I’m pretty sure it’s a statute or something, weathermen. Look it up.
He sipped his Bud Lime and glanced at her.
samhey: She looked like she might want to go with him to the Harry Potter exhibit downtown. In the end, he never got the nerve to ask for her Hotmail address.
“I am so sorry that this happened to you in my country,’ he said to me. When the cloud had dissipated, one of the teenagers in the group decided to avenge our gassing. He picked up a brick and threw it down at the police below. Spotting this, an officer on the second level of the highway fired a canister of tear gas at us. It flew past my head and landed on the back corner of the roof. We...
An email from my mom regarding my aunt/uncle in Cairo: Just to let you know [your aunt/uncle] are all fine in Cairo. [Aunt] called me on landline this a.m., as their mobs as well as internet and TV are all down. Vodaphone still works to Egypt as far as she knows and they get a few freeview channels, which include CNN but Sky is down. They are about 7 miles out of city centre in a huge suburb...
Al Jazeera English: Live Stream →
The live stream of Al Jazeera’s Egypt coverage is incredible.
When my husband died, because he was so famous and known for not being a...– Ann Druyan, talking about her dead husband Carl Sagan. Ain’t that something.
My aunt, uncle and little cousins are in Cairo, Egypt. I emailed them last night and they said if you’re an expat it’s nothing more than inconvenience, as they couldn’t get into the city-center to work. Not because it was violent, but because it would take too long to drive through the crowds. That was before the government locked down the internet, cell-services and phone-lines,...
I think I have some kind of hot wing addiction.
lindstifa asked: Where will your travels be taking you in the US? Can you come to Chicago so I can braid your hair?
Thank god I got drunk enough to point out that beer commercials are stupid. Who knows how long that particular injustice would’ve gone unchecked.
In response to my original post: “There’s a new wave of Tumblr spambots.At least, I think there is.” sendchocolate: I really debated whether I should comment on this post or not. Maybe normally I would keep my mouth shut and scroll through to the next post. But it could be the makings of a migraine, the fact that my husband is out of town, or that my son is being a complete ass...
There’s a new wave of Tumblr spambots. At least, I think there is. They all have the same format of username (firstname-FrenchSoundingLastName(OccasionalLastDigit)). They seem to ‘like’ pairs of things, or reblog an arbitrary number of posts in succession. Their sites are just full of reblogs - no original content. That, the sudden number of them, and their lack of avatar are...
luckyshirt: I made something.
I dreamt about something called grendels. Small, magical creatures only a few feet height that looked like beautiful women, but with grins too wide and their faces dotted with tiny, intricate tattoos. They had the attitudes and persnicketiness of cats. Upon being introduced to one, you’d have to immediately offer your wrist to be bitten - something that would only pinch a little and only...
And stop calling me 'Shortly'.
Anne Hathaway Reviving Catwoman For 'The Dark... →
Chris Nolan has lifted the veil off his third Batman film. He has set Anne Hathaway to play Selina Kyle, who has a double identity as Catwoman. Nolan has also acknowledged that his Inception star Tom Hardy will play the villain role of Bane, an escaped prisoner who became abnormally strong after being pumped full of drugs. Bane is known as “the man who broke the Bat” after he broke Batman’s...
The Man Your Man Could Smell Like
I’m all out of aftershave. I usually wear Hugo ‘Dark Blue’ - woody lime and ginger and vanilla - but I’m looking at trying something new. I’ll be wandering through duty-free tomorrow and will have some time so I was wondering whether any dudes could recommend anything or dudettes mention what they like? I appreciate it’s a personal thing, but it’d be nice...

Much more important is the conspiratorial mode of WikiLeaks: a ‘good’ secret group attacking a ‘bad’ one in the form of the US State Department. According to this way of seeing things, the enemy is those US diplomats who conceal the truth, manipulate the public and humiliate their allies in the ruthless pursuit of their own interests. ‘Power’ is held by the bad guys at the top, and is not...
lowindustrial: Sometimes my favorite thing in the world to hear, even more than “I love you” or “I think I baked too many cookies,” is “I was just thinking of you.”
