The Late Monday Cuteness Buffer

On the top of this photographic stack of cuteness is a pic of Lucy, one of the latest kittens to be born and bred in the Jordan Animal Sanctuary. Lucy can't help, she is just horribly, horribly cute.

The Man That Thought Tinky Winky was Gay... is Dead

He lost to Larry Flynt and is now outlived by him. Jerry Falwell went to the great beyond this morning.

Some famous quotes:

"Grown men should not be having sex with prostitutes unless they are married to them."

"I do not believe the homosexual community deserves minority status. One's misbehavior does not qualify him or her for minority status. Blacks, Hispanics, women, etc., are God-ordained minorities who do indeed deserve minority status."

"I listen to feminists and all these radical gals - most of them are failures. They've blown it. Some of them have been married, but they married some Casper Milquetoast who asked permission to go to the bathroom. These women just need a man in the house. That's all they need. Most of the feminists need a man to tell them what time of day it is and to lead them home. And they blew it and they're mad at all men. Feminists hate men. They're sexist. They hate men -- that's their problem."

"The whole (global warming) thing is created to destroy America's free enterprise system and our economic stability."

"[homosexuals are] brute beasts...part of a vile and satanic system [that] will be utterly annihilated, and there will be a celebration in heaven."

"Textbooks are Soviet propaganda."

"If you're not a born-again Christian, you're a failure as a human being."

"Christians, like slaves and soldiers, ask no questions."

Some quotes I enjoy as a palette cleanser:

"You can safely assume that you've created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do." - Anne Lamott, author

"I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do because I notice it always coincides with their own desires." - Susan B. Anthony

"Millions of innocent men, women and children, since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined, imprisoned; yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion?

To make half the world fools, and the other half hypocrites." - Thomas Jefferson

UPDATE: Tinky Winky responds.

A click on the link on the page it was found can prove a huge image that is spectacular.

Can I Have a Tympany?

This is Jen's ear.

See the tympanic membrane?

Hers has fluid from the Eustachian tube side that is pushing on it painfully. It is also making her very dizzy and yes, she does look like Bono when she walks. She has to keep her arms out to keep from walking into things. That's actually kind of entertaining....

The littlest parts of out body, ones riddled with nerve endings, can take us out of the life equation with the tiniest of provocations.

Jen must take horse pills, squirt things into her nose and fight a malaise that threatens her vast pile of things to be done because of a wee bit of fluid behind a tiny bit of membrane.

Enjoy this day and enjoy your sense of balance for one who is oddly bruised and exhausted but has a wonderful sense of perspective.
