Boxing Gloves on Chickens!!

Yahoo! News - Senator Wants Boxing Gloves on Chickens: "State Sen. Frank Shurden,(of Oaklahoma state) a longtime defender of cockfighting, is suggesting that roosters be given little boxing gloves so they can fight without bloodshed. The proposal is in a bill the Democrat has introduced for the legislative session that begins Feb. 7.... Gamecocks would wear sparring muffs, which are padded gloves placed over their natural spurs."

uh...okay? not sure I understand how your good tax money is going to pay for this...padded gloves for game cocks?


Tuesday, January 25, 2005 - Nominee List

So I should say something about OSCAR, no?

- unfortunately I'm still boycotting first-run "a-list" films. I'm not willing to pay $10 a ticket to see a movie. I'll most likely wait until I can get my hands on the bootleg.

regardless - go see hotel rwanda... we all need to be reminded of how we turned our back on those who needed it. It's a nice helping of guilt for those cold winter nights.

that and tis a good movie.

Free Pics!!!! Rhino Humping

tee hee...

Origami rhino humping...

Its always nice to know that even the fine art of Japanese Origami can be lowered to it's basest denominator. Of course you won't be finding me trying to fold this sucker - it looks like an enginering feat. That at it looks like I'd possibly end up with paper cuts on and a possible sprained wrist from all the folds. Which just makes this picture all the more marry. To think all that work....makes me giggle like an adolecent...

Which is always good.

Signature iPod's

I'm not going to be able to say much here other than I really do love coldplay and I am, of course, absolutely forgiving of chris for running off and marrying an actress, knocking her up, and then naming their baby girl "Apple"

And then of course the melange du' jour of punk-pop, looks like it's going to be perfect for my 13 year old neice, who doesn't really know what good music is becuase she is so hyper focused on being pumped full of MTV (they once played videos) shows with silly sound tracks simply picking from the pop-top 40. Thereby reinfocing supposed drama (which it completly is not anything more than staged - central casting kids) with music and continually fuelling a droning cycle of bad music.

I wanted my MTV - but now you can keep it.

Microsoft's AntiSpyware Tool Removes Internet Explorer

Courtsey of Brian Briggs @ BB Spot
"Many Microsoft Windows users who downloaded the recently released AntiSpyware program from Microsoft, or had it installed through an automatic Windows update, woke up to a surprise. Unintentionally, the heuristics of the software detected Internet Explorer as spyware, and removed the program from their systems."

heheh...I happen to think that this is rather funny...even if it turns out not to be true...haven't substantiated it yet. and got it from so who knows...

Still funny as hell. from a QA perspective.

Nice. Big. Fuck-up!

North Korea wages war on long hair

That's right. The Socialists in North Korea have decided to wage war on long hair.

According the BBC
"A campaign exhorting men to get a proper short-back-and-sides has been aired by state-run Pyongyang television. The series is entitled: Let us trim our hair in accordance with Socialist lifestyle."
If only it stopped there. But oh by gum, It doesn'!. The PSA/Propaganda goes so far as to hunt down out individuals (on the street) and shame them, on TV and by NAME, by asking why they look so shabby? Effectively "What's you're excuse for not looking like a proper member of the party?" Now what do you think you would do if you were stopped by .

They offer other programs such as "Dressing in accordance with our people's emotion and taste" to emphasize clothes and appearance with the wearer's "ideological and mental state".

So my question should be obvious... what about shoulder length curiles? Or better yet what about Marx's hair? Would He not belong to the Luxuriant Flowing Hair Club for Scientists? For is he not, most definitely unkempt? And graced with the long flowing - hair? And what of Mr. Jong-Il? It could be argued that his hair is much taller than the request (required) 1 - 5 CM in length.(it looks like he is trying to emulate the transitioning Elvis... Definitely not aging 'oh-so gracefully')

Truthfully I bring it up as more general irony, and how absolute power corrupts absolutely.

I'm mad Baby, MMMMAAAAADDDDD!!!!

Google Search: zuleka

Google Search: zuleka

I was more than a little surprized to find that when you search for my alias on-line, the very first hit is for erotic sculpture. The image is of a young girl bound and gagged lying on her side. Now I can understand that this may be of interest to some of you, but not to me. (just wanted to get that out there)

Nevermind the fact that Zuleka also pulls up 828 hits ( and I'm #3) Bondage a-go-go, never thought that'd be associated to me.

who knew I was so kinky?

UPDATE: I did a search for my first name, and came up with 2,370,000 hits. And of course, there is porn. and Japanese Anime. Strange for a name that means "bright light" or "twinkling lights"

Link Whore

Yep, I am glad to say it proud. I am a link whore.

I will gladly link your website, if you link to mine...

I've realized that's possibly why I'm suddenly getting more traffic, or it could just be that my actual writing skill has improved. Or it could simply be that you are a curly-hair lover (like myself) and were hoping to get some action. Well, of all of the likely choices, you're still out of luck. I'm actually taken, so the only kind of action that you'll probably be getting is the action of your head banging against your keyboard in boredom....

I mention, my whoriness because I was pleasantly surprised to find that one of my favorite blogs "The Manolo" has be listed as a linked- a blog to read... it is a sweet blessing from the super-fantastic shoe critique, as I love him, and the shoes. Although, I admit I am not always so the super-fantastic dresser myself, (as I am cheap.)

I only wish that I didn't work with the schlumpy-work office dressers. Of course it doesn't hurt that I have what they call "the hooves." Admittedly I do have a minor shoe fetish myself. As an example, I just recently bought a lovely pair of faux alligator sling-backs thanks to the Manolo.

See... aren't they just lovely?!? I had to restrain myself to only one pair as the chance find of a good looking size 11 wide shoes is nearly overwhelming. Professedly I really can't wear nice things for my office, as I am the low-(wo)man on the totem pole. I really don't have the need, nor the desire to wear nice things if I am to be crawling under desks, trudging back and forth from office to office and generally not be seen nor admired for my dressy flair. (hmm... maybe its time to dress the job and not having the job dress me....)

Tangent, sorry. Link whore, link whore....I was talking about being a link whore.

The point being that I realize I do like having people read my stuff. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one here who has something to complain/contemplate about. It may also have to do with the fact that I just got a nod as well from A New York Escorts Confessions, to join her Carnival of Sin. It is a little intimidating though, now I have to pay attention to writing good. Rather, I suppose that I am going to have to try and entertain more than just myself.

ha. Novel Idea.

Happy Holidays

So I got back from a nice warm holiday trip...only to be returned to the cold. It's nice to be reminded that I live in a cold weather climate. Ahh... it was nice - if only for awhile to be somewhere warm. I even got a little 'caramel-ly' since I can't really truly brown.

Now that I'm back - and thrust right back into the whole lovely spinning, whirling abyss...I am reminded of how really behind the curve I am. It's surprizing to imagine that 6 days without internet connectivity and already I feel more than a little out of touch. That and I find that all of the blogs that I've normally frequented have only become more popular since I've last seen them ...all six days ago.

That and I've been drastically trying to find out more information about friends and family whom were vacationing in Sri Lanka and Thailand. So far nearly everyone I know directly is accounted for, but there are still others (friends of friends) whom are still missing. It's good to know that the blogsphere is a place where information flows freely - and quickly - about whom, what and where. Thankfully within hours I was able to get confirmation that everyone was okay. It's reassuring.
