Tonight looks to be a good night at SpiderBabies, down in Deep Ellum, and I wish I could make it, if only to see the Necrotones and all my friends, but the lack of groovy maternity club wear and the fact that I know I’d smoke if I went are keeping me away. (Not smoking…possibly the hardest thing I’ve ever tried to do.) Also, I can’t drink. And I get *really* cranky if I stand up for very long. All in all, I’m not much fun at a club when 6 months pregnant.
So, instead, I’m reading various news…and you’d just be amazed at the sheer idiocy out there. For example, Coke and Pepsi are in deep shit for painting logos all over the Himalayas. Is that a special kind of stupid or what?
From the “only from the Bush’s” and the “What the hell is wrong with Florida” files: Jeb Bush’s new child welfare director says he views spanking that causes “bruises or welts” as acceptable punishment and husbands “have the final say in any family dispute.”
A forest fire that burned out of control for almost two weeks and devastated over 50,000 acres near San Diego was caused by a helicopter looking for pot farms, a California Department of Forestry investigation has concluded. So, it’s nice to see the war on drugs is working, no?
And get your tin foil hats out kids…Airport security screeners may soon try to read the minds of travelers to identify terrorists. Officials of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration have told Northwest Airlines security specialists that the agency is developing brain-monitoring devices. So, nervous flyers…prepare to be cavity searched.
And last, and quite possibly least, even though I’m not going out on this sweltering summers’ eve…far be it from me to keep others from being…um…well turned out. Get yourself a pimp hat, a purple caddy and call yo-self a daddy.
