Slow Weekend Blogging..

Tons to do around the house, oh well not really. The laundry, change a couple of locks, fix a loose plank on the deck, work out, read blogs, and if time permits spruce up the minimalist look I have on my blog. But then it's not about looks but content isn't it? ;-)

Some late night funnies....

"President Bush, of course, is responding to the crisis. He's on vacation. That's his plan. He'll show them ... President Bush is on vacation in Texas right now. This is true. He's urging his staff to join the 100-degree club by running three miles in 100-degree heat. Experts say it's proof that the president an come up with a bad idea at any level." --Conan O'Brien

"As you know, President Bush is on a 10-day vacation. Congress is on a month vacation - and Joe Lieberman is on a permanent vacation." --Jay Leno

"Interesting fact about Joe Lieberman. Did you know that his father owned a liquor store? In fact, that how they first met the Kennedy's." --Jay Leno

"Apparently the Dixie Chicks had to cancel 14 shows on their tour, because of slow ticket sales. There's some concern they're losing their fan base. How ironic is that? They finally have something in common with President Bush." --Jay Leno

"A lot of people think Joe Lieberman lost because of the kiss that President Bush gave him at the State of the Union address. So let that be a little lesson for all the Democratic Senators out there. You wanna keep your job, don't make out with President Bush in public." --Jay Leno

"Incumbency is a powerful weapon in electoral politics. You all remember Gary Condit admitted an affair, was under suspicion for maybe even killing his intern, still considered running for re-election. James Traficant from Ohio thought about running for re-election from the prison cell he was sitting in. It's tough to lose. So you're, for example, a respected, three-term sitting senator who was once his party's vice presidential nominee -- the list of things that you would need to do to lose your party's primary starts with strangling a kitten in front of children in wheelchairs and gets worse from there. That's what made last night's results so stunning. Sen. Joseph Lieberman was defeated in Connecticut's Democratic primary, losing to political newcomer Ned Lamont who appears to be from the Steve Forbes school of non-blinkiness. But the real story was not the unblinking, yet gleeful winner but sore Loserman if you will who seemed blissfully unaware of the reality of the situation." --Jon Stewart

And I present to ya'll Dildo....

ya'll have a one-track mind, what were you thinking.? ;-)


It's the town of Dildo... link here.

Dildo is a town on the southeastern Dildo Arm of Trinity Bay on the island of Newfoundland, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, about 100 kilometres west-northwest of St. John's. South Dildo is a neighboring unincorporated community. Residents of Dildo are called Dildoians.

The town has a fast-growing tourist industry. It offers picturesque scenery, several bed and breakfasts, the Dildo Museum interpretive centre, the Historic Dildo Days celebration in August, the first cod hatchery in the province on Dildo Island, and a replica of a giant squid caught in Dildo in 1933. Dildo won the Harrowsmith Magazine Award in 2001 as one of the ten prettiest small towns in Canada.

The town's name has attracted certain amounts of attention. The name may derive from a place name in Spain or Portugal; the name of a tree; or the shape of the headland.

Dildo achieved greater notoriety when it was mentioned in the song "A Night in Dildo" by the Canadian musical comedy group The Arrogant Worms.

"the Dildo Museum interpretive centre"?? unh..huh unh..huh.

Enjoy the weekend folks..
