So my old man, dog bless him, went on a trip to France a few weeks ago. He sent me five CDs worth of pics that he took. Now my dad’s lack of photography skills are legendary. And he continues to uphold that tradition. My dad may be the only tourist ever to take a picture of the awe-inspiring edifice that is Notre Dame, and make sure he got a dumpster in the bottom right of the frame. The Loire Valley looks like the San Fernando Valley. He has his thumb partially obscuring the viewfinder taking shots of the solemn memorial to the fallen at Normandy. The Eiffel Tower looks vaguely distasteful. He made me sad for France. Maybe that’s what he was going for…
Y’all, I’m too pooped to pope.
And what is the first rule of Fight Club, hmmm?
I wish with all my heart I had written this.
This is one of those when you say to your friends, “Uh sorry guys, gotta take this!”
“Just like Mitt Romney the day before, Vice President Joe Biden was booed at the NAACP convention. Unlike Romney, however, he wasn’t booed because the crowd was upset but because they didn’t want Biden to stop talking. In an animated speech Thursday, Biden painted a stark contrast between Democrat and Republican visions for the future - and urged the historical civil rights organization to “close your eyes and imagine” what the country would look like under a Mitt Romney presidency. Biden, whose presence was met with a response so enthusiastic it resulted in boos when he said he’d be wrapping up his remarks, emphasized his belief that the presumptive Republican nominee is a “fine family man.” But his vision for America’s future, he argued, is “so fundamentally different” than “how we view the future of America.”’ (via At NAACP, Biden booed — for ending his speech - Political Hotsheet - CBS News)
Y’all mock me for being in love with this man, but uh, YEAH.
Uncle Joe is my boyfriend. He can do no wrong in my world.
Ugh, is it time for drinks yet? I need something cool and colonial, like a vodka and tonic or a lime rickey or something. And a veranda. And maybe someone to fan me.
