Hunks, Junk, and ... Dumbasses

Here he is, People Magazine's 2006 'Sexiest Man Alive,' Mr. George Clooney.

George is, of course, very easy on the eyes, but I’m a little disappointed that he beat out Patrick Dempsey, a.k.a. Dr. McDreamy, for the honors this year.

Thanks to people who like to send me links, I see that – oh, joy – I’ve been nasty-spoofed again. It’s very funny, in a perverted kind of way, but God Almighty, don’t people get tired of pulling these juvenile pranks? I wish I had the time to dog other people all over the Internet and impersonate them for some insane (but unknown) reason. Oh, geez, what am I saying? That’s the last thing I’d wish.

There are actually much more important things to talk about today – like Iran (where I wish to God I could send some people). Little pissant country that it is, Iran bears keeping an eye on. It has plutonium and nuclear capability. It hates the U.S., it hates Israel – hell, it hates just about everybody. It’s courting al-Qaeda. That’s frightening.

There was an earthquake (about a 6.5, I think) off Japan overnight, spawning tsunami warnings. Even though the ensuing tsunami wasn’t anything much (about 16” high), how great that there was sufficient time in which to get the warnings out.

Has anybody heard any buzz about the new version of Windows – Vista -- about to be unveiled? Good? Bad? About the same? The next time I get a computer (which might not be that far in the future since my PC seems to be possessed), that’s probably what will be on it so I’d kind of like to know what to expect. I’m very happy with XP but anything better is always … better.

Former and now convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff reported to prison in western Maryland this morning to begin serving his six-year prison sentence for a fraudulent deal to buy a fleet of casino ships in Florida. He’s still awaiting sentencing on his corruption conviction.

Who would you all like to see in the ’08 presidential race? It’s a wide open race, the first since 1952 without an incumbent or a sitting Vice-President in the mix. As this point, I’d say the possibilities are virtually limitless.

P.S. Since Blogger can't seem to manage to fix many of the other bugs plaguing us all, I guess it's too much to hope for that they might provide us with a mechanism for blocking unwelcome visitors, huh?

Matt Santos without a doubt.

Is a washing mahine a mexican device for cleaning clothes?

Southern Writer said...

I'd vote for McDreamy. Ever seen him in the movie With Honors?

I'll bet Miss Snark is beside herself today. Haven't been there, yet. Will have to go check it out.

Serena Joy said...

Oh, yes, ma'am, Liz -- I'd vote for Santos.:)

The washing machine - washer - is the device I wash my clothes in, but I don't think mine's Mexican. I take it they're called something else in Wales?

I haven't seen the movie, Lesia. I'm all for anything McDreamy's in, though. I'm avoiding Miss Snark today since I'm overwhelmed with snark myself. I'd hate to get into a Snark fight. LOL.

Roxan said...

Miss Snark has declared a national holiday. LOL

Serena Joy said...

It's about damn time. LOL.

Steve G said...

Okay, I know I've overstayed my welcome, but you can't get rid of me that easy.

Serena Joy said...

Steve, you nut. You're one of the normals, always welcome.:)

RexZeitgiest said...

She was talking about me Steve.

Serena knows I voted for George Clueless.....

Serena Joy said...

Nope, not you, Rex. Not any of you sane, normal people who visit.

Kanrei said...

So me then...
This is somehow anti-Lemming. I knew it! First Elton John bashes lemmings and now here. The world hates those who are cliff-impaired.

SJ said...

Yes, Kan, there is a Lemming Conspiracy afoot. Are we gonna lie down for it? Hell, no! Arm your lemmings and send them to join my squirrels. Viva la Revolución!

Kanrei said...

It just means no more vacations for me. The world went insane last week.

"God has smiled upon you this day
The fate of a nation in your hands
And blessed be the children
Who fight with all our bravery
Till only the righteous stand

You see the distant flames
They bellow in the night
You fight in all our names
For what we know is right
And when you all get shot
And can not carry on
Though you die
La Resistance lives on"

-South Park

SJ said...

Yeah, well, the blessed children can fight right alongside the nearsighted squirrels and vertigo-afflicted lemmings. Let 'em set South Park on fire. Burn, baby, burn. Viva la Resistance!
