Didja ever eat a pine tree? Some parts are edible. I just never thought the BARK was one of those things. It was like watching a Master sommelier at work. In glass... the assessment of the aroma, the color, the full experience of the bouquet.... In mouth... we focus on the feel, we pause to let our taste buds fully experience the texture of the flavor...... I'm guessing this particular tree scored well, as evidenced by the self-satisfied slurp & burp. I guess I should be happy she didn't spit as well. 'Scuse the blurry-- I was laughing so hard that I couldn't keep the camera still.
Fer cryin' out load, to read the blogs today, you'd think Obama was interviewing White House interns. And to watch the news shows trying to exonerate our President from the horrible crime of sneaking a peek at a pretty girl by showing the videotape-- over and over-- that he was really "just turning around to help another young woman up the steps", you'd think he was one step from taking vows of celibacy. On the other hand, there is absolutely no mistaking Sarkozy's scenery check. Vive le difference!!
AP Newsbreak: SC gov 'crossed lines' with women.
COLUMBIA, S.C.—South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford said Tuesday that he "crossed lines" with a handful of women other than his mistress—but never had sex with them.The governor said he "never crossed the ultimate line" with anyone but Maria Belen Chapur, the Argentine at the center of a scandal that has derailed his once-promising political career. "This was a whole lot more than a simple affair, this was a love story," Sanford said. "A forbidden one, a tragic one, but a love story at the end of the day." He said that during the encounters with other women he "let his guard down" with some physical contact but "didn't cross the sex line." He wouldn't go into detail.Thank God. He's gone into waaaaay too much detail on everything else, after all. The phrase "Too Much Information" comes to mind. I guess Sanford is unique in that at least he claimed to be in love. Usually we hear all about how "it meant nothing" and "she was just some girl".
Sanford said the casual encounters happened outside the U.S. while he was married but before he met Chapur, on trips to "blow off steam" with male friends.Yeah, that's it. Blame your buddies, lol!
During an emotional interview at his Statehouse office with The Associated Press on Tuesday, Sanford said Chapur is his soul mate but he's trying to fall back in love with his wife.Heh. Good luck with that one. I'm sure the missus will be very excited to hear about the effort required to be in love with her, since she's not your soulmate; and she'll appreciate your valiant efforts-- as will your constituency. Does anybody else hear the sound of the latest tell-all confessional autobiography hitting the clearance bin at Barnes & Noble?
