Tina Fey Watch Out

Here they are, live from the Palisades: the Calhoun Sisters (and honorary Boodlers) performing their smash hit "Saralicious!" (Linda on the left, Lauri on the right.) This needs to go viral!

truly weird video there Joel!

Good words!
Avaricious, pernicious.

I wonder if Sarah knows what they mean.

Back to my Harry Potter.

Non schmops kapop.

Long day, good night everyone!

Could we call the Republicans' actions over the past couple of weeks "insidious campaigning"?

It is the one other word that goes perfectly with pernicious.

Let's just hope we don't end up with "insidious governing" in January.

Oh, I'm gonna do MY part to see that this goes viral! Starting right now...

Posted by: slyness | October 13, 2008 9:12 PM | Report abuse

206 views when I rated it on Youtube. When you consider fivethirtyeight.com had about 84 page views its first day live that's not bad.

Oh, hi everyone. Busy day, probably worse tomorrow.

Toodles boodle and sweet dreams.

Very funny.

Wow... video. We really are closer to being 21st Century than ever before. Now... about those italics and hyperlinks.

Daughter and I just returned from our first night of volunteering at our local Obama office. Wow. What a great experience! The place was buzzing with activity... old people, young people, foreign-born, native-born, white, black... all types of people were there and everyone was working hard and all were very nice.

Daughter made phone calls and I input the results from the calls. They need help every night after the calls stop (at 9) to enter data, so I think we'll be going pretty often. It really was an exciting experience for both of us.

I was also very proud when folks found out that Daughter wasn't there for service hours needed for school--she just wants to do her part since she can't vote yet.

Yes we can!

Go TBG and daughter! I saw the same mix of volunteers at the Newport News Obama office.

Hope Kim checks in with an update on the air mattress crew in VA Beach.

Now I am calling it a night.

Wow. The Cleveland Browns are taking the Monday Night game away from the world champion NY football Giants.

Literally. The Browns just intercepted Eli Manning for the third time of the night, this one returned around 95 yards for a TD.

I'm amused by the Calhoun sisters' video, and wondering about the approval process to become an 'honorary Boodler.' I'd check with the shop steward, but he's offline today.

I just hit #7 on my way home,darted out of the tall grass and up to my windshield.Thankfully nothing looks real damaged and despite me being almost eye to eye with this buck,he got up and trotted off.I guess I was going less then 20 when I hit him.I hope he is ok as I am ok too.

Pretty night with moon out and all,normally I would drive my lane without the lights on,but tonight I left them on.

Gosh, gwe, glad you and the buck are ok. That's a scary thing to happen.

Posted by: mostlylurking | October 14, 2008 1:22 AM | Report abuse

About as scary as that video...heh heh...

Glad we heard from Joel. I was picturing him bleary-eyed by a roulette table. Nice that he was out camping instead.

Well, Joel, I'm a huge fan of the Ach-man (we keep one of your books in the bathroom at all times for the "quick read" - the short essay format works really well for us - this is sincere, not sarcasm... I live to become "Mr. Perceptiveman" and often come remarkably close.)

But while I'll probably post a token blog-link, I'm not so sure this really "needs to go viral" - I'm pretty sure the real thing is a bit funnier (some things are just beyond parody), and certainly, no one can quite top T. Fey and company. Case in point, "It's just so hard to tell if global warming really has man-made causes or if it's just a natural part of the End Times." (Or some such.)

Paul Krugman, a nobel prize winner. Way coool….

Meanwhile, Steven Pearlstein has a pretty good article today. He suggested the maharajas of finance set an example and work for a dollar a year until the crisis has passed. Not a bad idea at all. When things went bad for us, my boss went without pay until things got better.

I kept thinking "Twilight Zone" while reading this article. Interesting. Unsettling. Something...

'morning all. Coll vid. Imitating the barracuda borealis has become a cottage industry.
Nice warm morning here. Yesterday the folks in Saskatchewan were shoveling snow while my neighbour's kid were playing in the pool. Latitude isn't everything, longitude counts. The strangeness of fall.

Good morninckzz, Boodlers!
Had trouble getting my airplane going today. Drats, pirates are not in sight. Krugman getting a nobel, nice. He writes so that I can understand.

Medvedev says Russia will build more aircraft carriers. Large holes in the water to toss money into. Hmmm, monkey see, monkey do.

Vroom, vroom. Beginning takeoff roll.

Good morning, everyone. Where is October? It's supposed to be 87 here today and tomorrow. I'm ready for cooler weather and the election to be over. Sorry, I know I'm repeating myself.

Done. And done.

Viral, baby! Viral!

sd,
I used "cottage industry" in my post. I swear I wasn't looking at your paper. I would say great minds think alike, but I don't know how that applies to me.

Mornin' everybody...

Made an early hardware store run this morning and on the way home I was thinking "I wonder who John McCain will be today?"

He's like a desperate guy in a bar at closing time, trying every pickup line he can think of to get someone -- anyone -- to come home with him.

Off to the shop...

Peace out :-)

Someone told me that there was a Sarah Palin kissing booth at the Rennisance Festival this weekend, but I didn't bother looking for it.

Was probably just a rumor to get business for a pit bull with lipstick, anyway.

Would have been a different story if they had a Tina Fey kissing booth...

Three weeks to go. Do I hear the growling warnings before a landslide?

God loves us so much more than we can imagine through Him that died for all, Jesus Christ.

Morning, friends. I hope someone will fill in the words of that video because I didn't get any of that? The fact that I didn't get any of it, is this a good thing?

TBG, I think it's great your daughter is working on the campaign. Some young people just aren't interested, and it's good to meet those that are.

Martooni, Scotty, Mudge, Slyness, and all, morning.*waving*

I'm ready for the campaign to be over too, Slyness. I'm sick of those negative ads, and they pop up all the time, and most of them by the Republicans. Hayes and Dole.

Have a great day, folks. Hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend. I did get some sleep. And it is warm here. Does not feel like fall, more like summer, promising to be the same today.

Time to swim.

Meant to add that I'm pretty sure I *did* see a Joe Biden booth at the Renn Fest, but all he did was speak extemporaneously non-stop while giving people donkey rides (on a donkey's back, not his).

Looked like one of his aides was doing some face painting for the kids, but the only color they had was blue.

Hmmmm...

Painting faces blue.

What could possibly go wrong?

The NY Times has an obit for David Lett, who founded the Willamette Valley wine industry, which has flourished.

One of my colleagues in Portland operated a pinot noir vineyard in his spare time, but gave it up upon retirement. If I remember correctly, he pointed out that pino noir isn't just a grape variety, it's a whole family of closely-related grapes.

I happen to drink very little, so never picked up the subtleties. On the other hand, Portlanders are spoiled rotten where it comes to produce and fruits. The Times' mention of strawberries is appropriate.
