Sen. Chuck Schumer certainly is fond of the word "internecine" in reference to the Democratic Party's selection of a presidential candidate. Scary thing is, I knew what he meant. :-P Sunday's Meet the Press guest list - Meet the Press, online at MSNBC- msnbc.com
I mean... this *must* ne true. The return address is: firstname.lastname@example.org I think I'll get right back to them-- after I answer my emails from the CIA. Sigh.

Yes, folks, I am a Rat, according to Chinese Horrorscopy placemat I read the last time I went to a Chinese buffet. And since it is now the year of the Rat, I figured I'd go look up my beady-eyed little furry alter ego.
… THE RELENTLESS RAT Determined when he or she wants something, the Rat will work hard to get it. Rats are also very conscious and measured around money. But under their calm, charming veneer, aggression may be lurking. The Rat uses intellectual power for critical decision-making and is a mastermind when it comes to small details. Practical, but sometimes lacking vision and courage, the Rat can block his or her success because of greed and conservatism. Inner fear makes Rats unpredictable -- so don't let their charm fool you.A mastermind of small details? Me??? Gotta say I've never been accused of that before!! :-))
The Rat survives in ways no other signs does. He always finds a way to get out of trouble, as he applies his mind to every detail. Perfectionist as the Rat tends to be, it is hard to stay friends with a Rat for very long. Rats have great insights and are very telepathic, but in the end they may be lonely … because the Rat never completely trusts anyone. They create magic when they love you but become paranoid and suspicious when they stop trusting you.We Rats don't sound all too lovable, do we? In fact, we are sorta....ratty. So. Moving on to my predictions for the year:
February 7, 2008 - January 25, 2009 Year of the Earth Rat The year of the Rat should be a cautious one for Rats, who may find the year is a mixed bag for them. The year is most favorable for Career-related endeavors - the General Star and Tang Fu star that are present in the Rats Life Palace indicate opportunities for career advancement such as a promotion, a pay rise or an increase in responsibilities. However, this will not fall into your lap - you will have to go all out to secure your own advancement. There are three negative stars in the Rats Life Palace this year, specifically the Sword Edge Star, the Fly Blade Star and the Hidden Door Star. These stars indicate personal injury and accidents - thus, it is wise to exercise extra precaution on the sports field, and also whilst traveling. If you work in a job with a high level of occupational hazard, such as handling sharp weapons or machinery, it is wise to be extra cautious.Great. No sports, travel, or working with machinery. Think I can use that excuse to get out of work the rest of the week?
Grandma allegedly hides cocaine in bra - Yahoo News
OAKLAND PARK, Fla. - Broward County authorities said a grandmother was arrested for hiding cocaine in her bra during a drug raid in Oakland Park. Eight others were also arrested Friday at or near the home of Henrietta Corvin Daise, 62. Many of them were her grandchildren. The Broward County Sheriffs Office said deputies conducted a search warrant on her home and found Daise with powder cocaine stuffed in her bra. Deputies also found 20 crack cocaine rocks, four grams of powder cocaine, marijuana and $1,000 in cash.
Well, folks, I got to watch the Super Bowl on the radio since I worked last night, although I did come home to hit the sports channels for the highlights. As much as this old Packer fan hates to admit it... the Giants really deserved this one. After watching them play in Dallas and after crying in my beer over their playing in Green Bay.... yeah. They deserved this one, and it was a relief to know that we're not going to be hearing about "19-0" for the next year. P.S. Somebody who had 7 and 3 in the football pool Cleaned. Up. :-D P.P.S. Now I'm off to watch my favorite part of the Bowl show-- the ads! Giants upend Pats in Super Bowl stunner - Yahoo News
One perfect spiral and it was over for the New England Patriots. Forever, fans would remember who lost this Super Bowl, as much as who won. Eli Manning looked every bit like his older brother, throwing that beautiful fade route. Plaxico Burress backed up his brazen prediction, catching the 13-yard touchdown pass with 35 seconds left. And with that thunderbolt, the New York Giants became NFL champions Sunday night. With the crowd standing and roaring for the entire fourth quarter, they startled the heavily favored Patriots — and themselves, a bit — with a 17-14 victory.
Well, at least or until Hillary gets elected... YES FOLKS, I AM JOKING! Frances Nicolas Sarkozy marries Carla Bruni - Telegraph And I love the "reason" for the quickie marriage, just 3 1/2 months after Sarkozy's divorce:
One of the reasons for the sudden marriage was apparently next months planned state visit to Britain, with Mr Sarkozy concerned about being a guest of the Queen at Windsor Castle with only a "live-in lover" to accompany him.Yup. Even after all the years of marital hijinks in the British Royal Family, we wouldn't want to see any shacking up going on at Windsor, now would we? And this following quote caused an emergency removal-of-coffee-from-laptop-screen. Here I thought *our* politicians had the claws out! Silly me!
Bernadette Chirac, the last First Lady of France before the retirement of her husband Jacques Chirac last year, said: "Its great news. I send my very best wishes." Mrs Chirac added that "having a companion was useful for anyone, including a president of the Republic", because she could be used "as a punch bag".Meeeee-owwwww...... heeere, kitty, kitty, kitty.....
So, will it be YahMSN? At any rate, I think this BBC columnist goes a bit far calling it a marriage. Metaphorically speaking, that is.
BBC NEWS | Business | Microsoft and Yahoos shotgun marriage If Yahoo agrees to the deal with Microsoft, it will be a shotgun marriage, but it will be Google holding the shotgun. If Yahoos management says "yes, I do", it will be an admission that its attempts to turn around the company have failed. Yahoo shareholders, in turn, will not be able to believe their luck. Microsoft was probably the only company with pockets deep enough to bail them out. For Microsoft, however, this is the deal that could break it. Making the offer is an admission that Microsoft's management has been scared by the success of Google.
