Happy New Year!
I hope the new year brings blessings and joy to you all. And sex, lots and lots of sex. Sex for everyone in 2008.
Me? I want a bunny.
I'm at a party and there's a blizzard coming! WooHoo! Totally fucks up my plan to get drunk for the first time in years. Oh well, I'll have a martini here and then drink some champagne at home. Maybe I'll even drunk blog - I'm damn funny when the spirits move me.

Resolution For 2008
The time has come for me to finally give up my fancy with Marlboro's. [sigh]
I've been ready to quit smoking for a while but I didn't because I was stressed out and I didn't think I'd be successful. I've cut down over the last couple months pretty drastically. In October, I was smoking almost 2 packs a day. Now, I'm barely smoking a half pack a day. The fact that I have to smoke outside helps a lot. It's hard to enjoy a good smoke, when, it's so cold that your nipples could cut glass after a couple minutes. Brrrrr.
I also knew that I didn't want to quit smoking and get fat. So, on that end, I've successfully beaten my potato chip addiction. I replaced my favorite chips (Lay's Wavy and Flamin' Hot) with Pilates. That's a plus-plus. My ass has thanked me repeatedly and so have the construction workers. A "nice ass" shout out goes a long way guys.
So here I am, on New Year's Eve, my last pack of Marlboro Menthol Lights are in my coat and my Nicoderm Patches are on my kitchen counter. I've got about 6 packs of Orbit gum ready to go but I have one concern. Is gum going to be enough to curb my oral fixation? It's a pretty intense desire and I really don't want to start chewing ice cubes again. Or carrots, or celery or any other nasty raw veggie or calorie laden food. Maybe I could just suck on the ice cubes...
Either way, that is my big public resolution. I'm quitting smoking. I have a few others but those are private. Very private. ;-)

Dogs Love Shoes
Another reason I love dogs. Now, they wouldn't eat your shoes, if, you kept them stocked up in raw hide type treats. Puppies teethe and you have a choice - give them a chew toy or they will find their own. My dog never once ate a pair of my shoes. Maybe it was the spiked heels. It could have been because the only other leather shoes I had, besides my "fuck me pumps", were Doc Martens. We'll never know for sure.
Raw hide, people. Say it with me.
One Thing Nobody Would Ever Guess...
About me: I have a thing for men with accents. Not all accents but just a few particular ones. The right accent has a similar affect on me as really good foreplay.
What is something nobody would ever guess about you?

Team Obama Is Really Stretching...
Just hours after news broke of the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, Clinton and Obama issued statements about the killing and their ability to handle a crisis. Clinton went on about her personal relationship with Bhutto and drew a comparison between herself and the slain former PM of Pakistan.
The Obama camp made remarks that insinuated Clinton, Bush, The United States and the War in Iraq were to blame for the assassination.
Man, I wish I were a fly on the wall when Hillary heard about those comments. Benazir Bhutto was elected the Islamic world's first woman prime minister in 1988, but was fired 20 months later on corruption accusations by the country's military-backed president. She was elected again in 1993, only to be removed again three years later. Bhutto was murdered yesterday by a suicide attacker while campaigning to become PM for a third time. Looks to me like she was a marked woman long before we went to Iraq. Of course, that's just me. Maybe I'm just blinded by my obsessive love for Bush, Clinton and shoes.

I Predict Many Twisted Knickers...
The Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University released their Election Study and they found something very interesting.
They also found that Hillary Clinton is the favorite target of all on air news. Negative target, that is...

Racism or High Moral Values?
Some researchers think that the lack of rape by IDF soldiers of Palestinian women has more to do with fear of creating more arabs than anything else.
That seems a bit racist against the Israeli soldiers, if you ask me. Maybe, just maybe, Israeli soldiers find rape to be repugnant or maybe even SINFUL...

This Pope is no dope
I've always said that if I were a believer in Christianity, the Roman Catholic Church is the most credible, accurate, and valid of all Christian sects (I'd place the Church of Latter Day Saints as 1st runner-up). Protestants may argue, but they'd be wrong.
Looks like the world has some cleaning up to do.

This Is For Jake
He loves South Park. What of it?
Liberals Complain About the Media --- Shocker!
I just have one thing to say to the bitching and moaning lefties who think the pathetic and ineffective "journalists" we have today suck. Welcome to the party boys!
That's why we blog, duh. The MSM sucks ass and has for years.

Who Would You Do?
If you could have dirty, guilt-free sex with anyone (real or fictional)? No morality police, please. You get 1 hour with anyone your heart desires, no diseases, no pregnancy, fictional characters are real and for that 1 hour it's not cheating on your spouse (if married).
Who would you choose?

Are They Rednecks or Something?
Some scientists now believe that the closest evolutionary cousin to whales, dolphins and porpoises is an extinct deer that was the size of a raccoon. Others disagree but that's what I dig about science. That and the jokes we get to make about raccoon sized deer being cousins to whales. You know yer a redneck if yer a dolphin whose aunt is a raccoon sized deer...
Guiliani Is Slipping...
You know things are bad when Mike Huckabee starts gaining on you.
Rudy is ramping up efforts in Iowa and New Hampshire now that his national poll numbers are taking a nosedive. Initially, his plan was to blow off Iowa and New Hampshire, in favor of New York and Florida. That was a miscalculation but you can't blame Rudy. Who seriously thought the Huckster was a contender?

From the Mailbag
"Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting. We really have no trouble in finding interesting things to do. For example, the other day I went downtown to go to the newsstand, for the Wall Street Journal so I could track my investments. I was only in there for about 5 minutes.
When I came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. I said to him, 'Come on, man, how about giving a retired person a break'? He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. I called him a 'Nazi.' He glared at me and wrote another ticket for having worn tires. So I called him a 'doughnut eating Gestapo.' He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he wrote a third ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more I abused him, the more tickets he wrote.
Personally, I didn't care..... I came downtown on the bus. The car that he was putting the tickets on had a bumper sticker that said 'Hillary in '08.' I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired. It's important to my health."

The Non-Apology Apology
Everyone does it. I hate apologizing when I'm not sorry. People who force apologies out of other people don't deserve real apologies. I apologize when I'm actually sorry, not when someone demands one from me. Why would politicians be any different?
They aren't sorry they said what they said. They "apologized" because they were forced but by giving the non-apology apology, they can continue slurring their opponent. Real apologies are given from the heart, the surest way to get one is to allow a person time to ponder. The surest way to get a

The BEST, both of them,
and if you can't see it, go back to your college or university and demand your money back!
However, some people simply don't get it.
All I can say is: "Buzz! WRONG!! Thank you for playing!"
The Queen's Pierogi Recipe
These are the best pierogi you'll ever taste. My mom and I have perfected this recipe over many years and every person that has ever tried them - loved them. This recipe makes about 10 dozen large pierogi. If you want less, use your math skills and do so.
In a large bowl or on a table, mix all ingredients and knead into a soft pliable dough. Cut it in quarters and let rest, covered, for 10-15 minutes. Roll out each quarter, on a floured surface, into a thin circle. Use a drinking glass and cut the dough into circles, fill the circles with a healthy tablespoon of your favorite filling (recipes below), fold over and pinch to seal. Cook them in boiling salted water until they float (about 5 minutes)then lift out with a slotted spoon. Drain them and place in a lightly buttered dish to cool. Cool them in single layers or they could get stuck. Eat them boiled or fry them up. You can also freeze them after they are cooled.
Rinse and drain the sauerkraut until some of the sour is gone - do it to your taste. Saute onion until golden and then add the rinsed kraut to the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes on med-low temp. Turn off heat, add sour cream and salt and pepper to taste.
Saute onions in butter for about 3-5 minutes until lightly golden (don't burn). Stir in the salt and pepper. Combine the onion mixture with the mashed potatoes. Blend well.
Potato cheese filling: Follow above recipe and add 1 cup shredded cheddar to the potato/onion mixture. If you like more cheese, go for it.

Google Maps - Street View. Scary or Cool?!?!?
A little of both. This morning during one of my many snooze clicks, I heard a blip about Google Maps Street View Detroit being unveiled at 10:00am. I had forgotten about it, until a co-worker mentioned something about it. So I decided to check it out.
I figured it would only be downtown Detroit or something. Boy, was I wrong. I found my street in Garden City in the "blue". Basically when you click Street View in Google Maps, if the street is outlined in blue you can get a 360 view.
It was all fun and games until I saw MY CAR in front of my neighbors house.
At what point does all this information become TOO MUCH information??
It's a cool novelty, but do we really need a 360 view of residential side streets? I can see getting a view of main roads so you can scope out where certain stores are and such, but not personal homes. If you can't find house J between blocks 1 & 3, thats your problem. Do you REALLY need a picture??
Check out the Queen and My childhood home:
Cool.. but a little freaky..

I Can't Believe...
I haven't blogged since Thursday. Crap, I've been busy. Also, Draco is becoming a bit of a computer hog. If anyone is on it and he wants it, he tells us to "die". I think he picked that up from his brother, who can be heard saying - "oh man, I died", daily. Also, Drake has gotten very good with the mouse and computer, he can make you "die" if you aren't quick enough...
Anywhoo, Granny and I made about 10 dozen pierogis for Christmas today. If you've never had a real pierogi, you should try to. No, "Mrs. T's" don't count, they are crap. There is no comparison between homemade and store bought. If anyone is interested, I can post the recipe(s).
I have to go pack Jake up for his school camping trip. Yes, a winter camping trip. Sounds pretty cool to me.

This Is A Test
You don't have to support it and you don't have to tell me why it will ruin the economy. I just want to know this. Do any of you know what The Fair Tax is? Because it appears the commenters at Balloon Juice don't have a flipping clue.
Michael has the patience of a saint (even though he doesn't believe in them). :-)

So, It's 6am
And I'm heading for a cup of coffee. My eyes are blurred and I hear my mom utter from her computer..."Obama's leading in Iowa?" She couldn't believe that Hillary slipped in the polls. She then said, "what is wrong with these people? Obama can't win. I'd never vote for him, what is their problem?"
Without even opening my eyes, I say in passing. These are the same people that thought John Kerry was a good nominee, do you really have to ask? They are idiots.
Then I just laughed and got my coffee. After coffee, I consoled her with the knowledge that there is very little difference between Hillary and Rudy. So, if she can't have one, she can certainly have the other.

Venezuela Tells Chavez...

The Fog of War
In retrospect, we never should have put Beauchamp in this situation. He was a young soldier in a war zone, an untried writer without journalistic training. We published his accounts of sensitive events while granting him the shield of anonymity--which, in the wrong hands, can become license to exaggerate, if not fabricate.
We the public, thank you. Thank you for letting us know that you can't stand by the story published almost a year ago and the two others that published six and seven months later.
