People do call me Nordic, so...

Your Score: Older Futhark

You scored

Language of the Norse, Older Futhark! Thirty symbols, all told. And no hardier, more warrior-like tongue has ever graced the longships of the Viki or left the Celts and Saxons in such quivering fear. There's only one drawback, that being you died 800 years ago.

Climbing Bullshit Mountain

Oh, dear, I think I just split a seam!

John Stewart on the Gonzales Mess

Let me transcribe my favorite part, as Stewart goes over some of Gonzales' recent testimony:

Gonzales [in clip]: Mr. Chairman, your question relates to an ongoing controversy which I am recused from. I can't -- I'm not going to answer that question.

Stewart: "So, uh, unless you have a question about, I don't know, literature, sports... You got the wrong guy! I'm the Attorney General, I can investigate anybody but me."

Stewart: Yes, I have an idea what this week's "I Don't Recall" will be:

Gonzales [in clip]: I can't respond to your question.
Gonzales [in clip]: I can't -- I'm not going to answer that question.
Gonzales [in clip]: Sir, I'm not going to answer that question!
Gonzales [in clip]: You know I can't answer that question.
Gonzales [in clip]: We'll go back and see whether or not I can answer that question.

Stewart: "And, if I check with the Attorney General, and he says it's OK, we'll talk. But I have to tell you, it doesn't look good -- right now he's not taking my calls...." [stage whisper] "I *hear* he's testifying in front of the Judiciary Committee *right now*... and he's blowing it."

Also loved? Stewart's comment on how "contempt of Congress" is not the same thing as the existential hatred we all share. And the thing at the end where he tries to follow G-man's convoluted logic.

Altogether, a great time for political satire.

Not such a great time to be... Gonzales'?

Voice Post - Friday Night with the Cats

“Well, I'm about 2/3 through my animal rounds tonight. I feel like a doctor on rounds. Yeah, I come home, I take care of Lucky's medicine & drop my own stuff off. Relax a little bit then I go pick up some dinner, go see Sophie, or Madame Sophie as ___ calls her. And water all those plants, which is a significant endeavor. And then now I'm walking over to Daniel's to take care of Mr. Pugsley. But that's not a problem. He does not need any medicine & I know he's gonna lie on top of me & be very friendly when I watch TV. And otherwise share his space. So, hey, that's why I'm late with the ___ right?”
