Paying It Forward and Other News

Dirk over at Too Disgusting To Contemplate, Too Compelling To Ignore listed me as one of his seven nominees for a blog award, and charged all of us nominees to come up with seven others. Some of the ones I wanted to nominate were already on his list, but since I have many more than seven I'd want to nominate, here are just a few of the ones I like the best:

Sarah at She's An American Girl

Stephen at Are You There Blog? It's Me Stephen

Johnny at A Hole In The Head

Alexandra at Stillettos and Sneakers

BC at Twenty Years and Counting

Michael at Side Effects Include WHAT Now?

Hell In a Handbag Productions Handblog

and of course, Dirk himself. But he's already been nominated, so somebody beat me to it!

Now, all you nominees have to nominate seven others! (But if you've already been nominated, you don't have to do that again.)


Apparently, John McCain has picked Karen Valentine as his VP running mate. Maybe she'll be his good luck charm. He's gonna need it.

Ooh, aren't you the sweetest thing! All those actors who never have a chance at getting the Oscar are right. It is nice to be nominated.

Love the Karen Valentine reference. I was thinking of the gals from "Here Come The Brides."

I've heard that B*tch talk before. What a wacko! She has a son in Iraq and actually said and I quote, "I sure hope President Bush knows what he is doing over there."
I think if I had a son over there I would make sure the leaders knew what they were doing.
She is against drilling for oil in her home state of Alaska I wonder if McBush realizes that? She loves to kill animals and believes in preventing her own sex from choosing what to do with there own Vagina, what more could you ask in a Republican running mate? ed

Sarah: You're welcome! But I calls 'em as I sees 'em, and I always find something interesting and relevant on yours. (I wish mine was as relevant--but sometimes my head hurts from thinking too much about the state of our country.)

Ed: I don't want to be a jinx, but I was HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY to hear about McBush's choice. I was petrified that he would ask Colin Powell--now THAT would have been a fly in the Metamucil. But instead, he's trying to court the womens' vote by choosing someone whom they can't relate to. Whatevs. (Oh, and if he decided to ditch her in favor of someone stronger, who'd be the flip-flopper then?) Oh, his balls are really in the Salad Shooter now...again, though, don't want to jinx things.

We have over the counter codeine laced aspirins up here. It helps when I start thinking about the Bush administration.
