Nice Try. I Don't Think It Will Work.

This item is again making the rounds of the in-boxes. Sent to me by a "friend" of the male persuasion. Actually, I think it's hilarious, and creative... but I won't be participating, so all of you who know where I live... just stay home, and don't stalk my house. There will be nothing to see here... move along... move along...

DON'T FORGET NEXT SATURDAY!

WALK NAKED IN AMERICA DAY

Don't forget to mark your calendars.

As you may already know, it is a sin for a Muslim male to see any woman other than his wife naked and if he does, he must commit suicide. So next Saturday at 1 PM Eastern Time, all American women are asked to walk out of their house completely naked to help weed out any neighborhood terrorists.

Circling your block for one hour is recommended for this anti-terrorist effort.

All patriotic men are to position themselves in lawn chairs in front of their houses to demonstrate their support for the women and to prove that they are not Muslim terrorist sympathizers. Since Islam also does not approve of alcohol, a cold 6-pack at your side is further proof of your patriotism.

The American government appreciates your efforts to root out terrorists and applauds your participation in this anti-terrorist activity.

God bless America!

P.S. It is your patriotic duty to inform others. If you don't send to at least one person, you're a terrorist-sympathizing, lily-livered coward and are possibly aiding and abetting terrorists.

Fluffy Feet

I didn't know until I watched a fairly-recent TV program on pandas that they actually have fur on the bottoms of their feet. Apparently this makes it more comfortable to walk around in the snow.

One of the panda fans, a lady known only as Rita Petita (yes, I do know her real name; no, I'm not going to tell you) has posted one of the cutest pictures EVER of Little Prince Fluffy-Butt (and fluffy-paws) recently on her Flickr site. Her pictures are all copyrighted, and I am doing her the courtesy of not getting around that by grabbing a full screen-cap, but I will send you to see this picture for yourself.

I did, however, make a screen cap of just one of his fuzzy paws, to whet your appetite....



As an aside, I met Rita Petita at the recent event at the San Diego Zoo. She was packing some serious photographic hardware, and I remarked to her that now I could see why she's able to get such great close-up shots. She smiled and said yes, the pandas have become a very expensive hobby for her. (Those great big lenses are EXPENSIVE.)

Bears. Rock Bands. What More Could You Want?

Yep, we've got everything you need, right here in the Land of She Who Is Cranky.

Thanks to good friend Janet, one of the "TER Ten" (don't ask, it'd take too long to explain), yet another video from the Dallas double-header. It's already been a whole year. Amazing.

Anyway. Yet another view from the hill --er, that's view from the balcony--where you can spot me by my glowstick. The flickering one, right in the front row, at the far left side of the frame, nearly in front of John the bass player (the guy wearing all black, for those not in the know). Mine is the one that flickers because it was a battery-operated glowstick, and when it's doing the color blue, it flickers and flashes.

Posted for your viewing pleasure as a public service of your Crankiest Beach Ever. Watch especially closely right around 4 minutes and 53 seconds... I pointed my glowstick at first Justin, then John, to acknowledge them--and John gave me a thumbs-up (or maybe it's a fist-up) in response. So very, very cool. Enjoy!
