Party! @ the office

We had a party for the publication Rain Taxi at our office in The Keg House!

There were party people upstairs

There were party people downstairs

And the Shuckster with a platter of tiny tasty cupcakes!

Then I found out where she was hiding them: the copy/mail room!

After cleaning out the cupcakes I reworked my chemical balance with a 'Raintini' or two...

or three or fourteen...

Perhaps this was why I was so groggy the next day and broke my butt on the carpeted stairs from my room to the potty...

In The Year 2000...

Remember the future, the one with video phones? Okay, there really are devices that do all that now, but who cares when you've got a computer set up with mic and cam?

My favorite beso boys even know how to use them, and they are only 4 and 1!

So long as their daddy helps set it up...

And doesn't interfere...

My Only Olympic Coverage

Jonas and Andrew are pictured here after each breaking a world record in (what else?) swimming. They were later disappointed with their gold medals as they were expecting cookies and a Pixar video. In fact, Jonas would then accidentally throw his medal into the river; fortunately it was retrieved by Grandpa Starling. Andrew cried until a kind Chinese medalist swapped his own medal for Andrew's gold, as the dear toddler liked the bronze color better. This act brought China and America closer together for the love of sports and brand names.

Iz It Cuz He'za Visalian?

Last week on The Colbert Report (hey Stephen, thanks for signing my Tek Jansen poster at NYC Comic Con a few years back!) Colbert asked Kevin Costner about, of course, Waterworld. I got a good laugh about how another film about global warming got an Oscar and, dare I say, a Nobel!

Italian Fit

This was a few days ago, and the full article, for all seriousness, is available on The Economist, but their daily email cracked me up:

Italy began deploying 3,000 soldiers, some wearing battle fatigues and carrying assault rifles, into city streets across the country to guard embassies, train stations and other areas. The policy remains in effect for six months and was ordered by the centre-right government of Silvio Berlusconi, who won elections in April in part by vowing to crack down on crime.

Okay, not that bit, but this bit:
Crikey! Surely the dude on the left is being arrested by the guy on the right for impersonating a policeman whilst on his way to strip at a party! Or exposure during Pride Weekend! Surely something other than actually patrolling!
