the otherwhirled

where nothing is real, and nothing else is sacred.

Hang in there this weekend!

Howdy friends and neighbors and visitors from around the globe who continue to search for nude photos of Condoleezza Rice and Jeri Thompson’s breasts. I just wanted to drop you a line to let you know that Commander Other was doing something this weekend other than commanding the lint in his navel. In fact, he’s spending the bulk of the weekend outdoors in our semi-tropical weather (with wind!) refereeing some soccer matches and photographing other soccer matches. Things around here will return to the normal abnormality on Monday, after what ever time the sunburned and windblown Commander Other drags himself out of bed.

Here’s hoping you all you silly Americans have an enjoyable holiday weekend, and for the rest of you, here’s hoping you’re enjoying whatever it is you do.

Another Exercise in Not Getting It.

(AP Photo/Evan Vucci) The reason why she was willing to pose with you, oh “Little Chimperor That Couldn’t”, is that she is so damned poor and desperate, she was even willing to appear on camera with the likes of the moron who made her that way. It’s not an accolade, it’s an act of literally having nothing more to lose.

And yes, everyone knows your handlers just picked her for her last name: “White”. Bravo.
