cut for large, work safe HILARITY )

Totally yoinked from [livejournal.com profile] masteradept, whose boredom brings the lulz.

BTW, totally resubscribing tonight. I hath decided.

ETA: Also hilarious and also from [livejournal.com profile] masteradept, I present MGK Versus His Adolescent Reading Habits - basically shopped book covers skewering some famous science fiction/fantasy series. I think my favorites are Anne McCaffrey - Mary Sue Gets a Dragon, Dragonlance: the Journey of 5000 XP, and Thomas Covenant, ASSHOLE LEPER HERO, and Robert Heinlein's Let's Have Sex On Mars. Aha. haha. HAHAHA.
kjpepper: (the web)

Pretteh. Like seriously, this is one of the nicest government web sites I've seen.

And a good place to keep up with the transition to the white house.

Behind The Scenes: Newsweek On McCain In The Dark, Obama Threats, And More. This isn't the actual report itself (that hasn't been released yet) but an article about it in the Huffington Post about the report.

Newsweek has released highlights of its Special Election Project, which allowed reporters to gather behind-the-scenes information on the presidential campaigns with an agreement that none of their reporting would be published until after Election Day.

The contained highlights are mostly funny (Obama's frustration about having to answer poorly worded questions during debates made me LOL). Some of them are sobering (the jump in death threats against Obama in direct response to some of Palin's fear/hate mongering), some of them, especially the ones which show McCain was clearly not in control of his campaign, are sad. All of them, I think greatly humanize all of the people involved in both campaigns. (Well, except Sarah Palin, who remains an ig'nant troll.) One of the things I tend to be frustrated about in terms of politics is that it's all spin. All the things candidates say are carefully scripted, they are told what to say, how to say it, how to present themselves. They are packaged and branded by their staff, and become the message rather than the man/woman. One of the reasons I loved watching The West Wing so much is that it clearly showed this process, and what compromises all of these human beings - President, First Family, and staff - need to make in order to keep the message on track. At the end of the article I found myself really feeling for both sides... the winning one because of the crushingly daunting tasks still ahead with the hopes and expectations of a nation weighing on their shoulders, the losing for having to live with the mistakes they've made. (Again, except for Sarah Palin, who, in direct opposition of the First Law Of Queen Latifah, has only gotten more troll like and quite possibly more ignorant in the time it took me to type this paragraph.)

I may have to pick up this Newsweek, seeing as I'm not due to be in any doctors' offices anytime soon. I'd like to see what else is in the report.

I am not drunk. However I am wired, full, and positively glowing from jubilance.

Crunk and Disorderly party was neither crunk nor disorderly until at the end of Indecision, the announcement came down that Barack Obama had won. Things got disorderly wicked quick. :) All told, it was a great party. Food was good, cake was tasty, and we did have a good turnout of friends with whom I was extremely happy to be stuffed into my living room watching everything go down. I actually remembered to grab my camera - I'll be posting pics on facebook probably tonight. I'm too wired to sleep.

Called up Dad as soon as Cingular's network freed up after the announcement (I couldn't call anyone for about five minutes afterwards). Both of us were sorry Mom missed this, but Dad was quite emotional about the fact that he didn't. Bless him and all others his age that made it long enough to see this happen. I then called my sisters and Amastan and pretty much had a conversation with each of them that mostly consisted of screaming incoherently and jumping up and down.

It's down to me and [livejournal.com profile] morlock awake and left in the living room, still watching CNN amidst party detrius... Which is weirdly appropriate.

Damn. President Obama. I'm kinda boggled. My attitude on him in the last two years went from Is he kidding? to maybe we could to holy shit, we really could to yes we can. And now, in the aftermath of Yes We Did... yeah. I'm still shellshocked. Well done, America. Well fucking done indeed.

And can I say... Best looking first family evar? I mean Michelle and the girls looked FIERCE tonight...

It's a different world out there right now. Lets not screw it up again.

Goddamn. So impossible to get my work on today!

Looks like people are mostly going to show up later than earlier tonight, if they're coming, so I don't have to make an insane amount of dinner. Course I don't know if Anzovin Studio peeps are coming.

Extra incentive though - menu tonight will be my quite tasty baked chicken in orange juice, rice, and some sort of vegetable and bread TBD. I'll make lots, and if y'all don't eat it, my dragons will.

Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!

I just voted for a black man with a funny name for President of the United States of America.

....goddamn. Andee and history have just collided - both being evaluated for injury.
kjpepper: (sexytime!)
Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!Adopt one today!

I has baby dragons! They are so goth! And yeah, keep clicking on them so they turn into big bad mofos.

ETA: I named them Tusky, Musky, Dusky and Jaynn. Yeah, we didn't grow up playing pac-man or anything...

Oh yeah, cause I'm a dumbass and forgot to put it in the post, the party doesn't have a start time really. I said 8 on facebook. You can come over earlier, but you may well be drafted into sous-chefing.

But tell me how you REALLY feel, Keith Olbermann?


The funny/scary part about this clip is that I noticed for the first time that he gets the same maniacally gleeful "Wow, people are dumb! Yay." expression on his face while he's ranting about something that [livejournal.com profile] sydneycat does....

But back on topic... so can't wait for this damn election to be done, omg.

“Al Qaeda will have to support McCain in the coming election,” read a commentary on a password-protected Islamist Web site that is closely linked to Al Qaeda and often disseminates the group’s propaganda.

The endorsement left the McCain campaign sputtering, and noting helplessly that Hamas appears to prefer Barack Obama. Al Qaeda’s apparent enthusiasm for Mr. McCain is manifestly not reciprocated.

It's an op-ed piece so I'm not sure how accurate the claim is, but OMG I hope it's true. This is almost as funny as Marilyn Manson supporting Dubya.

ETA: ah, here's an actual article. *SNICKER*
kjpepper: (yes we can! (obama silly))

I love that it's all the same guys from the original too.

I just saw a picture of a ceramic lawn jockey, a confederate flag, and an Obama sign on one lawn/porch.

Internet, how you hurt me.

What makes this "official" I wonder?

if anyone here has NOT seen PalinAsPresident.us, remedy this immediately. If you have, go back, as they have been and will be adding something daily to it until election day and today's addition made me snarf my coffee (click the drip on the desk).


In other politics news, I think I'm morally obligated to post Obama's speech at the Alfred E Smith memorial dinner, because damn, it was funny. I think I need to have him saying "my greatest flaw is that I am possibly just a little too awesome" as my windows shutdown noise.

In other news. I have a goth french manicure as interpreted by a six year old. It came out rather well considering, usually my attempts at self manicure chip or smudge or something within the half hour and this hasn't yet. just needs another coat of clear. Woot.

7:00 is getting darker and darker. If it weren't for getting up to pee every three hours these days (it really has settled into 1am, 4am and 7am intervals at night, it's a bit scary) I'd still be dead asleep.

Had a sleepy/worky afternoon after Osaka, and then [livejournal.com profile] morlock took me out to dinner @ the bluebonnet, with a stop at the comic store. Testament to my returning appetite, as being still full from Osaka I still managed to toss down an entire turkey club sandwich. Gonna have to keep an eye on things today but so far no ill effects... and again, it's not like I'm craving anything too terribly unhealthy. Except maybe coffee. I didn't have any yesterday, and I was all right... I'm trying to make that an occasional treat rather than an everyday necessity, and actually having the vanilla soy milk around does help with that, as I crave heavy creamy and sweet in the morning. Apparently the coffee is optional there.

The evening was wrapped up with a book in [livejournal.com profile] morlock's armchair watching McCain flail during the debate. Who the hell is Joe the plumber? I'd be creeped out enough by McCain's direct addresses to him to move to Canada this morning. Actually it was funny, I wasn't paying attention so much to the debated questions as both candidates demeanors... I felt that Obama stayed relaxed and confident in his positions enough to make McCain nervous on a few occasions. McCain... just seemed squirrelly and stiff for most of it, blinked a lot, and I felt he resorted to taking potshots at Obama too much. And that he always had to one-up Obama at the end of every point, like he needed the last word. And at several points I was reminded of those annoying alltell wireless commercials, cause I felt that McCain wanted to end most of the talking points with "Oh yeah, well Senator Obama, you're still a ding-dong! Do you want a ding-dong for president??" To which point I would be all like "yeah about that, have you looked at your running mate lately?"

Today's plan/goals: Worky worky, and a lot of it. *sigh* Just need to gird the loins and push through it today, otherwise it's just not going to get done at all ever. blarg. Also want to tidy up a bit in my room, clean the downstairs bathroom, and tackle a few grody areas of the kitchen, as Amastan and Ale are definitely showing up this weekend. We'll see what time and energy allow for today, but I feel confident that I can manage all that and an episode of Murder She Wrote with C.

So off to it. Can't do a thing w/o breakfast after all...
