First, a BIG thanks to those who sponsored me for the Blogathon. You guys are so awesome! I got the power of the Mighty Laur behind me! Woo-Hoo! And, Cousin ‘O Love (and mom to La) is coming to hang out with me and keep me awake overnight! What a great chick she is (for a bizillion reasons)!
Second, an apology to Chancellor Angela Merkle:
CC: German people
We’re sorry we elected such an imbecile as our leader and that you have to put up with him from time to time. We’re especially sorry that he hasn’t learned how to act in the company of intelligent people.
We tried to get rid of him but the voting machines didn’t work like they’re supposed to. We’d impeach him, but then you’d have to wear body armor whenever our Vice President showed up in his place, and no rich hunter of nearly flightless quail-tards would be safe in our country.
Under the circumstances, we’re both probably better off with what we have now.

(Hat tip to Cujo359 for writing this and I feel just the same way)
Third, speaking of presidential idiocy, check out this hilarious song by Paul Hipp over at HuffPo. I cracked up and can’t get the line out of my head.
Fourth, you must check out my good friend Kim Karangelen’s blog . She is hilarious! She writes about celebrity goings-on and I love her style – so clever and snarky. Surely she learned it from me! hahahha I knew Kim when we worked together at a brokerage firm many years ago and recently got back in touch with her and I’m glad we reconnected! Bookmark this one – she’s just that good!
Fifth: It’s a cloudy day here in Snarkyville and I’d give anything to just take myself (20 miles away) to a Starbucks with my magazines and drink lattes all day. Alas, I can’t. But it sounds nice, right?
There was a great article about her in the local Milford DE paper and it said in part:
“Beautiful Lengths is the first program of its kind that encourages women or men to grow their hair and donate it to women undergoing cancer treatment,” Craft said. “Real hair wigs are often not covered by insurance and they’re very expensive. I’m not sure why insurance doesn’t pay for it, but it doesn’t so this creates a bank for women who really need it. Some women are fine with it and will put their hair in a bandana, and show it off with pride. But others aren’t and need it. And when you need it and can’t afford it, there’s a problem.”
[F]or Craft’s second time around, she’s donating her hair to a campaign called Pantene Beautiful Lengths. The campaign, a partnership between the Entertainment Industry Foundation, Pantene, Women’s Cancer Research Fund and HairUWear, is the first of its kind in that it is specifically devised for the distribution of wigs to adult women through the American Cancer Society network of national wig banks.
How awesome is that? If you have the gift of wonderful hair that grows freely, I urge you to consider either Locks of Love or another program that benefits those undergoing life changes brought on by cancer.
Seventhly, I need to get my butt in gear or I will become permanently attached to the couch! Have a great day!
