Oh for crying in a bucket, people ...

The reason we have blogs is so we can spout off whatever we think whenever we want. At least that's my reason. And here's my spout, in response to the following question posed By Matt Taibbi in this Rolling Stone article:
Does anyone know what the hell is going on? And on the linear spectrum of capitalism to socialism, where exactly are we now?
Bailing out capitalism to keep capitalism from eating itself does NOT equal socialism!! (See, I put that in bold because I'm yelling here).

Other than that it's a great article. It just kills me that everyone seems to think that what's happening right now is somehow aberrant, rather than just the normal boom-and-bust that's inherent to capitalism.

We're all just so damn cool, aren't we?

So via Ross G.'s Facebook status update I discovered a funny video about Twitter and now I'm blogging about it.

The most salient quote seems to be "It seems like Twittering is just randomly bragging about your unexceptional life." Wait, isn't that sort of like blogging? Except that we use way more words ...

Word of the year?

I still haven't bothered to try Twitter, and yesterday, Jon Stewart used a phrase that makes me want to do it even less: "Twitscape." Don't know if I want to be part of that.

Meanwhile, having a blast over on Facebook, even though people keep poking me.

It's calad!

Originally uploaded by donna di mondo.

The intrepid Donna Di Mondo, who first achieved legend status in my world for actually making the "Ring Around the Tuna" salad from the Joys of Jell-O cookbook, has come through again with the Danish Garden Salad, a.k.a. cake salad, or "calad."

Yum! (Not really.)

Now if you need something to cleanse your palate after that, take a look at her absolutely gorgeous Irish soda bread.

Chotda, a.k.a. Santos, decided to get all foodie with the heinous "Danish Garden Salad" idea by making an "Aspic of Evil" (a.k.a. Miss Congealiality).

God, I love the internets sometimes!
