Testing, testing, one two three…

This is rather difficult, this whole blog posting business. It starts when one is required to remember both one’s username and one’s password at the same time. I was brain storming for ten minutes before I hit on the right combination. =P
But enough of such mundane matters, the Equuschick was inspired this evening. It all seems so obvious now that she thinks of it. She is moving to Greece. There she was, watching her sister’s video on ancient art, and there was a moving shot of waves crashing against a Greek shore, and she thought- “Ocean, warm weather, interesting culture, and olives. All I ever wanted!” Is her family joining her?
Not only was the Equuschick inspired, she is pleased because she has just finished watching her beloved Errol Flynn Robin Hood that she recieved for Christmas and only just now found time to watch. *pats it lovingly* I don’t see why Kevin Costner even bothered making his version. To think he could he even hold a candle to Errol Flyn is insulting. Pshaw. His hair isn’t half as silky and bouncy, his moustache is not half as dashing, and his shadow isn’t half as attractive on a castle wall. Oh, wait. He never even bothered with the moustache and the shadow on the wall, did he? Just goes to show what he did wrong.

She’s at it again

There’s a large, empty book case standing in the middle of our living room. No, it’s not a piece of modern art. It won’t be there for long, either. The fact remains, however, that it is here now. The ZooKeeper is rearranging and reorganizing. No piece of furniture is safe when she is nigh. One would not imagine that so many variables for furniture placement exist in a 1200 sf house; but then, you don’t know The ZooKeeper. She loves to create the impression of more space than there really is (definitely a feat in a crackerbox house), and to experiment with new arrangements. For instance, who else has bookshelves (tall ones, mind you) behind their couch?

I thought as much.

Perhaps the lone bookshelf standing in the middle of the living room is a piece of art after all; a tribute to a woman who refuses to accept any sort of status quo when it comes to her furniture. There’s a liberated woman for ya.

Hand me the bib, please.

If you haven’t been following Eason Jordan’s fall, then you probably don’t get any of your news from blogs.

The Mudville Gazette has a terrific interview with Jules Crittenden, witness to the Palestine Hotel affair, where journalists were accidentally shot by American military (full disclosure: our family has military ties):
http://www.mudvillegazette.com/cgi-bin/mt/mt-tb.cgi/2015

Captain Ed from Captain’s quarter has pursued the story with care an eye to detail- turns out Eason Jordan has made similar accusations against the military before- always overseas, never with any supporting evidence. This casts a bit of a shadow over his claim to have been misunderstood, don’t you think?

And another good place to catch up if you’ve missed this story is Michelle Malkin’s blog, where I read the following (there’s more, so be sure to click on the link below)

“Steve Lovelady ([email protected]) of Columbia Journalism Review has this
to say about Jordan’s resignation: “The salivating morons who make up the
lynch mob prevail.”

http://michellemalkin.com/mt/mt-tb.cgi/1009

The head of a major news organization made a shocking accusation of murder against American military- or he didn’t. The only way to find out is to release his portion of the video tape and let us see for ourselves. Jordan could have, and should have called for the release of that tape.

If he doesn’t want the tape released because he actually did make those remarks (I can’t think of another reason), then he needs to back them up with some hard evidence, and we need congressional hearings and a full investigation.

If he’s sorry for his remarks, he needs to make a full, complete, and genuine apology. Such an apology NEVER contains the word ‘but.’ “I am sorry, but…” is not the way to start an apology. It’s the way to start an argument, shift blame, and avoid responsibility.

If those thoughts make me a ‘salivating moron,’ then hand me a bib.

The HeadGirl making her presence known

My homework is in the next room, so in the literal sense I’m not miles behind it. In the sense of planning out my week-end, however, I know that Monday will be spent in the company of many math problems, vocab words and maps to label.

words of wisdom recently spoken in this common room

Do not shoot the dart gun at the ceiling fan.

Gentlemen do not shoot rubber-bands at their sisters’ bottoms.

In order for things to work, they must be plugged in.
