Silly - Dirty Face

(no subject)

I noticed some lines drawn on the inside of a closet door in my new apartment. The building dates from the 1950s. The lines were the height measurements of a prior resident, a boy named Brandon. He was around 4 feet and 8 inches in 1981 and around 5 feet and 1 inch in 1983, which is the last mark with a date. The last undated mark shows him getting close to 6 feet. Somewhere out there is a tall man, just a little younger than I, who became a man in this place, my new home. Where did your life take you, dear Brandon?

End of an icon

It's finally over. The end of an icon... well two icons really. Two of my icons lose their lifespans. Bush ends his 2nd term as about the least popular president ever and Cheney ends up even less popular. Bush thinks history will vindicate him, but he "misunderestimates" history and it will decimate him and eat his brain-thingey. Now we have Obama (just about). I'm very hopeful, but I never trust a politician. He seems a good guy and I think he wants to help us, but I'm reserving judgment. Anyway, if you want to make your own Obama-Hope poster, then go here.


My boss is taking the day off. She wants to savor the moment and soak it all in. She wants to remember every minute. I found that quite charming, even though I am a skeptic. I'll enjoy her hope and relief, as I watch and wait.


If you want to reminisce about Bush, then this video is must-see-TV. Well, watch it if you need a laugh. It's a Letterman skit, Top 10 Favorite George Bush Moments:


I'd also recommend that you watch this, um, lowlights reel and yes, here's another (hey, he was a busy schmuck).

Here's to a leader who cares more about the people, his employers, than about the rich and powerful, or himself. I am hopeful. So far the signs are mostly good. I have some concerns, but I do hope.

Haircut



Before and after pics. I got a little tired of the electrocuted young(er) Einstein look and got myself a bit of a haircut. I kept it longer because agrathea likes it that way. Part of me wants a buzz cut and a dye-job, like maybe the South African flag in my hair, or just plain bright orange or something. I sense a midlife crisis coming on. Bring it on! I'm ready!

I made this one. I could not resist the irony in this picture. A group of Christians went to Wall Street to pray for God to take over the financial system. They prayed by the giant bull, an artists way of mocking Wall Street, laying their hands on it, creating an impression that is quite the reverse of what was intended. I believe the most famous false idol in the bible was a "golden" bull and in this picture they all seem to be praying to just such an idol. Epic fail! No, epic fail of biblical proportions.
