Also, my head hurts, and I probably screwed up the HTML
Wow, today has been a stressful, busy day. Snarkfest is back up at a new location, as previously mentioned. Also, I had a surprise dentist appointment ("What do you MEAN, it's not tomorrow?!"), which was deathly unfun (I hate the grindy tooth-polisher thing). Fortunately, I got a good report, so I can probably stop dreaming about my teeth falling out now.

Massive backlog of linkspam:

Darfur news from hulamoth: Sudanese President Rejects AU-UN Plan ("Not that this is anything surprising, but his remarks themselves are outrageous"); meanwhile, the AU mandate will run out this December; "Amnesty International has a convenient little e-mail form letter which can be sent to senators. Or people can call the White House comment line at (202) 456-1111, during work hours, M-F."

Miss America 2006 has surgery in N.C.

San Diego to ban Wal-Mart Supercenters.

I got these nearly simultaneously, so: Community bans wreath with peace sign (from doleniel) and Wreath subject to fines for allegedly promoting peace, Satanism (morganwolf). Peace on earth, goodwill to men, indeed.

Michael Richards: Less Jewish than previously supposed. "'You can't feel Jewish. It's not a matter of feeling. You can convert to Judaism. You can't not convert to Judaism and then be Jewish,' said Rabbi Marvin Hier, founder and dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles."

"Sunshine" leads indie film nominees.

Zamzar, free online file conversion. Read: the place to go when someone posts an mp4/wma/some other format that you'd rather have as an mp3. Fantastic.

From my favorite illustrator's website: "Enchantment. A private commission on a theme from a popular fantasy trilogy: A King to be meets an elven Princess in a wooded glen."

From dduane, via particle_person: Lester Dent's Pulp Paper Master Fiction Plot and Twists, Slugs and Roscoes ("A useful dictionary of '40's detective slang").

From stavia: Bond, Hot Bond. "I’m angry. I’m angry now. It’s actually making me ANGRY how hot he is. WHAT, ARE WE INTERRUPTING YOUR HOT BOND ASS VIEWING? Turn around, bitches."

Dang. I was hoping for a return to Ladue v. Gilleo religious zealotry and self-righteous idiocy.

It's so much more entertaining when the idiot zealots remain...zealous.

I looked at the Craft website and went "Hey....that looks like art from the calendar I have!" Beautiful, beautiful stuff. My favorite's The Alphabet of Thorn.

Apparently, dreaming about your teeth falling out is a common occurance. I have one like that frequently. According to Dreammoods.com, dreaming about your teeth falling out is a reaction to stress/anxiety in your waking life.

And I *hate* the dentist. Specifically, I hate the drill. I'm allergic to novacaine, and had to have a tooth drilled WITH NO PAINKILLERS. Now, even the sound of a power screwdriver makes my mouth sieze up in pain.

Whoa, so I'm not the only one with those dreams? Hurrah, not as weird as I'd thought. (Now the question is, why does my brain remember so well what teeth falling out feels and tastes like?? *cries*)

Ohhh, Canadian Government. They never stop doing stupid things.

They had some minor clothingwank a while ago, hilarious.

Those Bond girls are hilarious. And that painting is lovely.


cheers here's to your icon


I hear the yaks aren't too happy either. Well said, Cleo, well said.

I live in Canada. I don't specify what my background is, unless people ask me directly. I don't call myself British Columbian. I'm just Canadian, thnx. Why can't the Quebecois and the Aboriginals just take that "label" and run?

If this keeps up, the snowboarders are going to start protesting soon, too.

I agree, also being a Canadian who doesn't label herself as British Columbian.

I have the illustrator's The Twelve Dancing Princesses and the Cupid and Psyche book. They're gorgeous.

"You can't put all your eggs in the abstinence basket,"

That is probably the best quote in a serious article about AIDS that I've ever heard.

You dream about your teeth falling out too? I used to have dreams like that a lot, but not so much recently.

Also, that online file converter has come at a very good time. Thanks!

I'm pretty sad about the yellow Wiggle, myself. xD My brothers and sisters kind of grew out of their Wiggles phase, but before that, we used to always laugh and say he looked just like our uncle Rob, which he really does, lol.

Very interesting linkspam.. thanks for posting ♥

Oh, I am so proud of San Diego, our wanna-be city. *tear*

That Bond, Hot Bond thing made me die of laughter. Omg.

Go San Diego! Ban Super Wal-mart! Yeah!

Oh, Cleo, some of us were talking about Harry Potter today in class, and one girl mentioned Sirius as being "Crazy Gary Oldman", and we ended up rehashing POA in Fifteen Minutes for the rest of the group. And I'm finally going to be able to read your book, as she's got it and is letting me borrow it! Thought I'd let you know, since you seem to have had a pretty down day. :)

Aww, hee! Fair warning, POA isn't in the book--Sorcerer's Stone is.

So the whole Michal Richards thing where he's not really Jewish but says he's Jewish so then his anti-Semetic jokes are okay...wasn't there a Seinfeld episode EXACTLY like that? I mean EXACTLY, with the dentist that decided he was Jewish so he could tell the jokes? Did he just watch the episode and go "huh, that's a good idea. Maybe I'll do that?" God.

And I officially want to watch Casino Royale now, even though I'm not a Bond fan.

Rabbi: ...and this offends you as a Jew?

Jerry: No, it offends me as a comedian!

Yeah, it went something like that.

Fortunately, I got a good report, so I can probably stop dreaming about my teeth falling out now.

Lucky sod. {sigh}
