a look of abject horror, yikes

Note to self

Next time a cup of ramen noodles (Smack brand, "Cup Ramen") labels itself as "spicy," even to the point of including a little picture of a hot pepper on the packaging, take it seriously.

Time to Change Senators

Missouri: Bond (R-MO), Yea Talent (R-MO), Yea

This is the official voting record for the cloture vote on the Federal Marraige Amendment. It didn't make it to the floor (48 for, 50 against, 2 abstain, 60 needed to go to a real vote)- an exceedingly good thing- but both Misourri senators voted for it. I do hope the "ban gay marraige" amendment fails locally as well- that's coming up in August. I expect it to pass, unfortunately, but at least this didn't.

I will be voting for neither Bond nor Talent as a senator due to this vote alone, and there is nothing they can do to sway my opinion at this point.

LiveJournal Crash Accidental Poetry

As you may or may not be aware, journals on Chef cluster, subcluster 8 have had severe issues due to a recent "routine" move. (Sort of like Apollo 13 was routine.) But skimming through the comments of people on that cluster, one gave me pause.

http://www.livejournal.com/community/lj_maintenance/86889.html?thread=5800809#t5800809 is sort of like some form of weird poetry...
