At work we get to use the AOL’s instant messenger. It’s the preferred way to communicate with colleagues scattered around this site and at others in the US if you don't want to call or e-mail. Most of the times the client window just sits in the upper right corner of my screen. Just below the window frame they have a little window with ads that change every once in a while. Most of the times I pay no attention to the ads. But yesterday that radar that guys have built in to their system that detects anything feminine just kept chirping. For, resting in that little ad window in AOL were these pretty young women beckoning me to find true love.
Of course they have to be pretty and the ad served it’s purpose (sort of) in that it got my attention. I did not click on it for I am not looking for love and that web filters at work do a pretty good job of blocking dating sites.
They were just a distracting enough for me to notice that there were only 2 femmes.
Why am I writing this? Cos I know my readers so totally care about the life of this denizen of cube city ;-). That and I got nothing!
Oh and when I was driving home I saw this truck in front of me and it had a sign with a URL. I thought it said "www.purplechickpickup.org". I perked up and looked again ...it actually said.. www.purpleheartpickup.org. I banged my head against the steering wheel. Something about the day or maybe it was me.

The White House invited newly elected Senate and House members to a “private reception” after the election, and George W. Bush really charmed Jim Webb. According to The Hill, Bush asked Webb how his son was doing in Iraq; Jimmy Webb Jr. is serving in the Marine Corps. Senator-elect Webb said he’d like to see his son get home safely. “I didn’t ask you that,” Bush shot back. “I asked how he’s doing.”Ya know what would have been fun? From a comment at wonkette..
Sources tell The Hill that Webb was so furious he could barely keep himself from slugging Dubya in the face, but he bravely made it through the dinner without violence. Webb’s office will only say that he had a “private conversation” with Bush.
“That’s between me and my boy, Mr. President,” Webb said coldly, ending the conversation on the State Floor of the East Wing of the White House.
2007 is going to be awesome.
The only way that would have been better would have been if Webb asked how the Bush daughters were enjoying their South American vacation while his son was risking his life for their father.
