There are myriad problems getting up as early as I do, but a major one is how the early hour weakens my already bad memory. Today I forgot to put on earrings before leaving the house! Giant gold hoops are, like, part of my "look." I am pretty sure I won't be able to take it by lunchtime and will probably haul ass to Macy's and buy some new ones just to get through the day! (I think that is only, like, 62% neurotic.)
Three major seen/heard items today.
- Oooh, Judy Miller takes her cut-rate Anna Wintour hairdo on over to court today! Fascinating stuff, and hopefully it's only a matter of time before Karl Rove is, like, [insert prison rape joke here].
- Speaking of folks who deserve whatever pain that the righteous universe cares to inflict upon them, moralist/author Bill "Can You Point Me to the Slot Machines?" Bennett lobbies for a lower circle in hell with his remarks yesterday -- "I do know that it's true that if you wanted to reduce crime, you could -- if that were your sole purpose, you could abort every black baby in this country, and your crime rate would go down." (For real!) But wait, does this mean he supports abortion rights? God, these assholes sure are confusing. Who can keep track anymore?
- And, speaking of inflicting pain on folks, new and likely hella gruesome photos are going to be released from Abu Ghraib, as per court order. Get ready to be horrified by your fellow Americans!
