Rick Perry is not my favorite human. He restored some of the mental health benefits to the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), which is good. It’s not what we had, and a bunch of kids have lost eligibility for CHIP completely because of rule changes, but at least we’re not going to become the only state that has a CHIP… Read more »
I have learned much from living alone for the past five months. I create less trash than I thought. Being in a vegetarian-only space is more important to my sense of well-being than I knew. I like hitting snooze several times on the radio-alarm clock and waking up slowly in the morning. I hate being the only one who ever… Read more »
From the Austin-American Statesman’s article Final map passes; legal battles on way: Sen. Jeff Wentworth, R-San Antonio, said he voted for the map because it’s important to elect more Republicans to Congress to help Bush. Ummm…what?

If anyone knows a humane method for convincing a dog that big fat juicy snails are Not Interesting, please drop me a line. I don’t mind her smelling them, and if she licks one I can always brush her teeth, but I would hate for her to eat one. It’s just too French. I mean Freedom.
It’s unfortunate that there’s no article, but The Toque’s headline “Queer Eye For Bill Nye The Science Guy” was enough to make my day.
For the record, I’d very much like “Come On Up to the House” by Tom Waits to be the music – the actual recording, not some subdued organist’s rendition. It’s not a hymn, so no one has to sing along, especially because I think asking my mother to sing the line “Come down off the cross, we can use the… Read more »
