Good Day

I have decided to end all my e-mail correspondences today with "Good Day." There's something about it that sounds very professional and Dickens-y hardass.


Last night was Thea's birthday and she celebrated by having a party at Whirlyball. It was a blast, except for that one time when the scary dude who works there stopped the game to yell at us for having too many head-on collisions. But then it gave us something to make fun of for the rest of the night.

This is for Thea. I have no idea what it is about, but I imagine they are singing about how their love for Thea Lux helps them defeat monsters.


Yesterday, I asked...

"Since being announced as the vice-president candidate, the Republican National Committee has spent $150,000 for Sarah Palin's what?"

16% said "family lodging and travel"
- No. That's only around $20,000 since she became governor and she bills Alaska for that, because, you know, she's a maverick.

16% said "spiritual advisor"
- She only uses him when a witch hunt is involved. She likes to shoot witches from helicopters.

No one said "tutors for her children"
- How are these kids getting schooled while out campaigning with mom? I hope they're not home schooled. "You can watch TV, but only with the sound turned off, you can read - just not books, newspapers or magazines, here's a gun, let's go shoot something."

68% got it right with "clothes and make-up"

According to The Huffington Post, Politico reports that the RNC has been shelling out the big bucks--over $150,000--on Sarah Palin and her family's wardrobe since she joined the McCain ticket in late August. According to financial disclosure records, the accessorizing began in early September and included bills from Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis and New York for a combined $49,425.74. The records also document a couple of big-time shopping trips to Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis, including one $75,062.63 spree in early September. The RNC also spent $4,716.49 on hair and makeup through September after reporting no such costs in August.

So, you see, America, she's just like any Hockey Mom from Main Street. Except what that Hockey Mom makes in a year, she spends on clothes and make-up for a week. Joe Six-Pack is going to have to switch to Joe Forty Ounce to cover this bill.

The RNC did say that the clothes will be donated to charity. Yah. Right. Can't wait to see the homeless guy near my El stop looking like a drag queen Tina Fey.

Good day!
