Grace in the Small Things: Day Two
The most troublesome tenant in our building gave his notice yesterday and one month early to boot. The apartment will smell delicious today after I bake cookies to thank a lovely couple in our building for giving us tickets to see Blitzen Trapper last weekend. Our bedroom is toasty warm.
O, Dara: Rally For Sanity Sign Ideas →
darao75: I am likely going to have a sign that reads “Christine O’Donnell Turned Me Into a Newt! (I got better.)” But here are the other sign ideas I’m considering: God Hates People With Signs Saying He Hates People. My Sign Is Better Than Your Sign. If You Can Read My Sign Then You’re Standing Too…

indieink: When the feeling comes to me, it’s fierce and exacting — it moves crowds to get to me. I try to push it back, but it’s aggressive, forcing my pen to the paper; I must get black on white. When it…

indieink: “If I had more time, I would write a shorter letter.” Either Hemingway, Voltaire, Mark Twain, or Blaise Pascal is responsible for the above quote (depending on who you believe). But today, the author matters less than the actual message. To-wit: IndieInk is looking for a little fall flair. We want your best three sentences on autumn. From cohesive paragraphs to micropoetry,...

The best comment on this NPR Post to date: If we were to indulge O’Donnell’s general premise: that we should invalidate constitutional doctrines that have interpretational origins only, and are not found stated as express language of the text, think of all the rights and institutions that would disappear from constitutional protection: -“Freedom of Expression” - never...
Don’t bother wearing purple. Do something instead. Try to connect with people. Not by wearing a color, but by being human. Showing solidarity is all well and good but it doesn’t do nearly as much as actually doing good.
The Snarky Amber Diaries: Truth and Forgiveness,... →
snarkyamber: Day 04 → Something you have to forgive someone for. You know what? You don’t have to forgive everything and everyone. Some things are unforgivable. What happened to me when I was 11 years old? Not forgiving it. It’s not going to happen. That was not just abuse or a “loss of innocence.” He…

If Elwood, Drunken Hopfrog, and the rest from the Popbunker haven’t seen this yet, I’d be very, very surprised. My personal favorites: Thor, Iron Man (OF COURSE), and Ghost Rider. (Yes, Ghost Rider.)
Christine O'Donnell Stuns Audience With 1st... →
“Where in the Constitution is the separation of church and state?” O’Donnell asked [Chris Coons, Democratic nominee from Delaware, also running for Senate]. Technically, it’s a valid question: the separation of church of state, being in the 1st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, is in the Bill of Rights and not ACTUALLY IN THE CONSTITUTION PER SE. I think I just hurt...

Why I Don't Care About Success →
Obviously, the first problem with success is how you define success … is it becoming famous, rich, creating a world-changing business, coming up with an idea that changes people’s lives, helping others, being happy? So many people with values similar to mine would reject the traditional definitions of success: being rich or famous or having a best-selling book or creating a huge business is not...

From the post at PopBunker.net: There has long been Sabremetrics for baseball. Though advanced stats are still not widely used, most brainy sports fans at least recognize, for instance, that wins have very little to do with a pitcher’s efficiency. But what about football? Football has always been an in-the-moment sport. Sure, there is history and tradition, but football is about players and...

I mean, yeah, it’s great that those miners are safe on the surface where they belong. (As a side note, I’m a little embarrassed that I didn’t know about the miners until the day of the full-scale rescue. Don’t judge me.) Having said that, is my liberal knee-jerkedness kicking in? Would the miners themselves play this game? A part of me hopes so; it seems kinda cool. ...
