An Eskimo in the White House?

Unable to retain much information from my High School years, because let's face it, I knew everything back then. I went a little further back in the memory banks to see if I could dust off some information I may have on Alaska.
Here's what I found:
- Frozen Tundra
- Eskimo's
- Igloo's
- It's really cold, but it's not the North Pole and Santa doesn't live there.

Being a radio talk show junkie I first heard the news of John McCain's Vice Presidential running mate choice on the radio. You have to paint yourself pictures while listening to the radio and I painted an Eskimo. Not an Eskimo in an igloo, a more modern one, but an Eskimo none the less.
As the news of Sarah Palin was presented to the world, I learned she is the Governor of Alaska, married with 5 kids, a beauty pageant contestant, a basketball player, hunts moose and eats them. The more I read, the more I wondered, no one really knew who Sarah Palin was until yesterday. She had a pretty sweet gig going on. Now she has brought the world into hers and her families lives and opened herself up to the biggest media anal exam there is known to man. It isn't going to be pretty. Republicans get a more thorough exam than the Democrats. It will be interesting to see how she holds up. Trust me if she lives in an igloo or has ever been in an igloo, we'll know about it. Oh and she's not an Eskimo.

Celebrities at the Wedding

I'm not apologizing for not posting lately.
A. Boy #1 got married Saturday, you can see a post on it at Farvel Cargo and
2. There's nothing on TV except the Olympics, which I keep watching anyway. I watched Ping Pong with my morning cup of coffee this morning. I'm getting tired of the Olympics. I suppose everyone else is too, that would explain the lack of comments on my last Olympic post.
There were celebrities at the wedding Aug. 16th. Silly Willy and Fluffy attended, but their true identities will remain a mystery. Not on my watch!
They are a couple of clowns that have a blog called The World of Silly Willy and Fluffy. Here you can see them having punch and cookies right after the ceremony.
The wedding was a huge success, I bought the happy couple each a toothbrush, it's all I could afford after the rehearsal dinner and buying the booze.

What's Up With the Water Polo Hats?

I spent way too much time watching Mens Water Polo on the Olympics this past weekend, it was something like 15 minutes. I've never seen Water Polo except on the Olympics and I remain clueless after all these years. Are they wearing boy hats or girl hats? Why must they tie it in a neat little bow under their chins? I couldn't look away from the hats, never saw the ball. And why in the name of all that is holy are there two teams playing and in the picture, three different color hats. Is Water Polo the equivilent of Curling in the Winter Olympics?

Problematic Panties

I've done a little research after seeing the latest Hanes Panties commercial, the Wedgie Free campaign they have going on. You may have seen it, it's new though and I can't find it on YouTube, yet. Everyday ladies in all shapes and sizes, doing everyday stuff and all of them suffering a "ride up" problem. They are shown giving a few glances around their present surroundings and then do a little butt jiggle.
Seriously, a guy can hoist his pants up to his neck, swish them around, re-arrange his boys and scratch his butt and no one gives him a second look. Have a woman sneak a little tug and we are shunned from society. I applaud Hanes for tackling the "ride up" problem. You Go Hanes!
