Which do I love more? This sign or sfist.


So yes, I did see the guy on the right. In fact, I had my picture taken with him, told him I didn't agree with him, but respected his right to voice his opinion. It could have been a knock down, drag out fight, but I took the high road. My sister-in-law says he's a major 'mo paying a penance. I disagree, I mean the design of his poster is atrocious.

Black Friday, indeed. The Wal-Mart Stampede...



You can see the craziness in their eyes.

Must.
Get.
Bargains.

Well, these folks got a little more than they bargained for this morning.

It's incredibly sad, but some poor and I mean that in every sense of the word Wal-Mart employee was killed by a crowd of frenzied fans of low prices.

Sure some will claim it was just an accident. But when people are getting killed over $200 computers it's time to change our priorities.

Black Friday indeed.

Of course it's one more notation added to my Why I hate Wal-Mart list. Need more incentive to join me? Check out this movie.

Reason #23 I love Illeana Douglas


She's quirky.

She's is often the best part of a shEYEt show.

And I adored her in Ghost World.

And then there's her brilliant use of her celebrity status.

When the paps are invading her privacy she holds up typed and laminated messages to encourage some sort of change in the world.

I love it.

A great actress AND a smart lady.

Wedding Crashers


Barack Obama spoke to me last night. Well, he actually spoke to all of us, but his election is bittersweet. Why? Well, California's Proposition 8 passed! And his message of coming together as a nation, well...does it really apply to me?

So same-sex marriage is now illegal (again), imagine that, it's illegal to commit yourself to someone for the rest of your life.

I'm being told to focus my anger towards more positive outlets.

Hmm. This bottle of wine might do the trick.

Oh and if you feel as PO as I do and want to say something to someone, head on over to these these two websites. They are both great ways to get donor information on the people who helped fund this hate-filled bill.

Of course if you're a chicken, you have more rights than gays and lesbians!

It's the perfect night for Festinade!


Festi what? Well, if you grew up in the swinging 80's perhaps your family had one of these bad boys.

Europeans still know how truly fantastic these puppies are and continue to manufacture and use them today, but us Americans, well we need to get back into the Festinade groove. Sure there's a small group of us who collect and covet them and for good reason!

Yeah, I know, "Aren't these just Raclette sets?" Trust me, they are so much better than Raclette sets.

Imagine if you will a group of people huddled around a set of pans cookin' and drinkin' all night.

Of course my dream Festinade guest list:

Martha Stewart
Amy Sedaris
Laura Kightlinger
Sarah Silverman
Steven Colbert
Tina Fey
and of course myself (there's only 6 pans people, but I'm willing to share!)

I think I should public access television this $&@! and start a YouTube phenomenon!

Sounds cool, right? Well, I'm always on the hunt for my next Festinade or a way to share the fun with someone else.
