What's All This?

Listen everybody, shut up for a minute. Here is a photo from my refrigerator. Ignore the womanly salad dressing for a moment.


People often say to me, "How do you stay so calm in the face of terror and natural disaster? Are you prepared for the inevitable onslaught?" I lead them to my refrigerator and point out my cup of Starbucks tap water. "More prepared than you'll ever be," I say.

While I do not know how this cup of water came to roost in my fridge, I do know that it has been there for several months. The salad dressings appeared circa 2001 CE. I'm saving them for the end times. When it comes to Rapture foods, there are few things I enjoy more than a good fat-free salad.

I cannot even open my fridge. It is sealed with that yellow and black Emergency Services "Caution" tape. Nothing can get in or out.

Esther, I must say that I'm not entirely comfortable with your adjectival use of 'womanly'. It reads as rather frosty.

I am entirely comfortable with your adjectival use of "womanly." The salad dressing is not manly. It is definitely womanly. What I'm not comfortable with is the word "frosty." What does that mean? As a tenured professor at a major American university, I am confused to say the least. A "frosty" is a dessert at Wendys, is it not? Delicious!

I am comfortable with your use of the word "womanly" and I enjoy the occasional frosty (though I feel they really shouldn't be served in a cup since that only encourages futile attempts to drink them with a straw.) However, I am not entirely comfortable with the use of the word "tenure."

When my professor mentioned to me that he had tenure at the school, my response was, "Big deal, I've nearly been here tenures. Call me when you've got twelvures."

There are several words in igmar's post with which I am uncomfortable.

"enjoy" "feel" "call me".

Are you hitting on me?

Salad you say? Fat free? I was rather hoping the rapture would involve fried food on sticks. That's what you get if you involve a fuckin sandal wearin' hippy like Jesus. Salad. I am going to search for a religion with a higher cholesterol content, screw this salad shit.

So it is in fact not the liberals taking Jesus out of America but INS!

Can one call DSS on INS? I mean deporting wee baby like that... to a politically unstable region... and so close to his birthday. That can't be legal, even if his parents aren't married.
