this little piece from the new yorker came to my attention via towleroad this week.  given the options in the us election (which is only a few days away now [exciting!]), you really do have to worry that the poll could even be close…

‘i look at these people and can’t quite believe that they exist. are they professional actors? i wonder. or are they simply laymen who want a lot of attention?

to put them in perspective, i think of being on an airplane. the flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. “can i interest you in the chicken?” she asks. “or would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it?”

to be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked.’

one of my friends forwarded this to me recently – i think it sums up the situation quite nicely and is particularly useful for those of us who like diagrams.

and while we’re on the topic of thomas the tank engine (seamless segue!)… ringo starr is either sick of signing autographs or hasn’t been getting much lately and would appreciate a little more attention.  too much to do apparently.  life’s busy when you’re a beatle.  or at least it seems busy if you’re as off the planet as mr crazy pants here.

oh… peace and love etc.

global economic what?

so there’s a crisis at the moment apparently.  things like stocks and australian dollars are worth as much as they were a few weeks ago.  but you know what… i really don’t care.  i know i should but i just don’t.

perhaps it is a symptom of being of the generation-y, but we’ve never had to worry about money that much and everything’s just gone along swimmingly.  we’re used to paying shitloads for things anyway and debt is our way of life.  think university or buying a car.

and don’t even mention putting a deposit on a house.  the baby boomers aren’t going to give up their investment properties lightly.

i’ll continue to fritter away my not-so-hard-earned funds on takeaway, coffees and donations to ngos for now.

can i just say that this woman is a fucking joke.  seriously.  it is offensive that mccain would choose her.  if anyone hasn’t already, go search “sarah palin katie couric” in youtube and feel scared for america if the republicans stay in power.  tina fey and the saturday night live crew needn’t bother with their skits (youtube those too if you want some entertainment) – the real deal is so much funnier!

sarah palin – read a book sometime.

news just in…

years of scientific and psychological research have been proven false by vice-presidential candidate, governor sarah palin: apparently homosexuality is a choice.

“As for homosexuality, I am not going to judge Americans and the decisions that they make in their adult personal relationships. I have…one of my best friends for the last 30 years happens to be gay and I love her dearly. She’s not my gay friend, she is one of my best friends who happens to have made a choice that isn’t a choice that I have made. But I’m not going to judge people.”
