I'm all nervous about Obama et al formally accusing Iran of running secret nuclear weapons factories or whatever the term is.  It's obvious Iran's leader is a little on the unstable side, and I'm just afraid of how he will react.  I'm sure Iran already knows this is coming, I'm totally anxious about the fact that Obama rallied a bunch of allies to face Iran together.  Reminds me of a kid in the schoolyard getting his friends behind him before facing the known school bully.  Except this bully is c r a z y.  And has some power to eff shit up.  :(

These are troubling times.  I'm sitting here watching the President make this announcement with my son and praying for Markus's sake...

My goodness, I never expected to feel so sad about Heath Ledger. I was so disturbed to hear what happened, and I am praying for his family and friends as they deal with this tragedy.

Thanks to [profile] lidi for the kick-ass icon.  :) 

Also....hope everyone in midtown Manhattan's all right.  :/  Raph and I are okay; I've been in jury duty in Queens all week, and he took the LIRR home and avoided the area.  We didn't even know about it until we saw it on the news at 7 pm.  Everyone, take care.

Skeptics, non-believers, and [profile] kingraph, this article is for you.

Mare, thanks for bringing my attention to it.

On another note: has there ever been a U.S. president less interested in doing what's right?  I don't even think HE thinks what he's doing is right, yet he does it anyway!  What brand of stupidity is this, and can we get an antidote?

I need to get me one of those "days until Bush is out of office" counters.

My sister just called to tell me there is a mermaid baby on Oprah. Doctors say that each leg and foot has visible bones that can move independently of each other, and there is a surgery scheduled for late February to separate them. What I would like to know is: how is this child going to feel when she's growing up, everyone's seen her in her mermaid baby state? A little anger towards her parents for parading her in the media like a circus freak show circa 1912? Maybe the parents want to bring awareness of Mermaid Sydrome to the masses; even though it occurs approximately as often as conjoined twins, this is the first case I've ever heard of.

Anyway, just thought it was curious.

ETA: Apparently this episode of Oprah was an update, and the baby's legs have already been separated. Still, my question stands: who wants to see this video of themselves once they grow up?
