Military recruiters intimidating reservists? Uh-oh. Not ohmigod!, uh-oh.

Was given to understand these foul cicadas would go away in a couple of weeks. They have not. Am seriously considering not renewing my subscription to the Wishful Thinking Picayune-Times.
Will Wright, entropic force. Love this guy.
For those of you who can’t understand why or how thoroughly I hate DC and everything in it, here’s an example of the everything. And remember: These people are running the country, and they hire in-office hookers who shop at Banana Republic and say things like “Hate D.C. sidewalks: not made for ladies in high heels.” (sounds of indistinct grumbing as AG moves on to something else, as this one isn’t worth thinking too much about)
It’s not full justice. Too late for full justice. But it’s a small good thing and about time too.
Hmm. Well, this definitely could be worse. (No difference between hatchery salmon and wild? Have these people never eaten salmon?)
I think my spiritual mentor put it best when he said, “Look in the dictionary under “Total Loser” — god, what an asshat. Apparently the I-shot-my-video-a-week-before-9/11 gambit was providing diminishing career-security returns, huh? For those who find Coldplay and Five For Fighting too edgy…
It’s starting — that big cicada infestation everyone’s talking about. I just saw my first one (sticking to the side of the building). Truly disgusting creatures. Wonder if anyone will care if I work from home ’til this lets up?
I have had an important moment of self-revalation today about the limits of family loyalty. If my sister ever went to Iraq and had herself photographed giving the thumbs-up to a sexual assault in progress (at the same time she’s getting herself knocked up by a fellow soldier, which makes you suspect that those two ought to just start saving for their kid’s therapy now), I am not going to be able to go on TV and claim with a straight face that she’s a good girl and was probably “just smiling at someone behind the camera.” I just don’t think I can underwrite that particular ticket to hell. Probably a good thing I don’t have a sister.
When I was 16, my family didn’t have cable, so instead of MTV I watched Friday Night Videos. These days, I don’t have cable, so I watch Tina Fey instead of The Daily Show. Hmm.
