Johann Hari – the best journalist I'd never heard of. That I first heard of him in regards to Kenneth Tong was the only possible palliative to having to hear of Kenneth Tong at all.

He links in turn to Jack of Kent, an eloquent and interesting lawyer-type. His posts on Love, Actually and the War on Terror and the Goering testimony at Nuremburg especially have stuck with me.

P.S.: Tom DeLay got three years! Fuck yeah. Also, I love that he calls Travis County of Austin, Texas the most liberal county in America. Ha. HA.

Slam that jackass behind bars already. Do it now, do it do it do it.

RIP, Governor Richards.

We needed you so bad. Still do.

"The cult of southern womanhood... requires [a female] to be frigid, passionate, sweet, bitchy, animated, and scatterbrained all at the same time... A horrifying number of us succeed, which accounts for that popular southern female pastime, having a breakdown."

There's actually a city of Flatonia, Texas.

So instead of going to sleep I popped my head into the world of political news. I was just in time to see a story about this former top adviser to Bush- he was arrested for shoplifting something like $5000 worth, and is now blaming it on his evil twin.

And then, I found out that it was true.

p.s. Actual headline in yesterday's local paper: Officials suspect identity theft ring bamboozling folks

Made Death Chicken tonight. hoooolycrap, it's so good. I'd missed it. I'd forgotten just how good the spices make the rice and ohhhhgawd.

Note to self, though. Put too much water in with the soup and the rice comes out soaked. Not that this is a bad thing, just that it makes orgasmic rice pudding instead of fluffy orgasmic rice. Actually that's kind of a good thing. You pick it up with a fork and drink it.

Also, unrelated but a slice of toast makes a cool discus.

Applications 5 out of 6 done.

Mom got a good look at the armadillo early this morning; she thinks it's pregnant. Who knows, we might have our very own set of quadruplets running around digging holes in the yard! We're both dorks and very amicably anticipatory about the whole thing.

Agh, there's so much mess in my room right now. The collected class notes from the last two and a half years of college are strewn about waiting for a sort and some storage. If any.

What do you all do with old class notes?

I just went out to get the paper, and there was an armadillo going across my front yard!

A real live armadillo, in clear daylight, running but not at anything near top speed. I've never had such a close look. For something that essentially looks like a giant bug-dog, they're CUTE.

I followed it around the house until it went under the back porch. There's an armadillo under my back porch! It might even survive around here, seeing how few cars we get. Whee~!

Not two days ago you were up to 79º F.

I saw my breath this morning. Weather sez: 27º.

Forecast high for tomorrow: 81º.

So Texas just won the Rose Bowl. I went outside directly afterwards and listened a bit to the screaming.

Triumphant screams. Next door, down the street, across the way, house behind us. One would go up into the night and two would answer it. Mom said it was like dogs howling at each other, and I agree.

It's still going on.

Heard one pop of fireworks, but didn't see 'em, and haven't heard anything since. Sanity. What a concept.
