Desperate Times

There were many Caribou Barbie supporters in the area near my office today for the McCain/Palin rally. They all parked in my office parking lot, which made it impossible for the people who actually WORK here to find parking. Anyway, my co-worker/friend Damon went out to where he saw two rally-goers park (on either side of a dumpster enclosure) and opened the huge, rusty doors of the enclosure so that the doors blocked in the vehicles on either side. (One of the vehicles was a huge SUV. Palin supporters can drive those in good conscience because they are confident that global warming is a myth.)

When the people came back to their cars after the rally, they had to push the doors closed before they were able to back out of their parking spaces. Just a little bit of inconvenience for them.

Immature? Yes. Did it prove anything? No. Did it make us all feel a little bit better today? Absolutely.

There's a new demographic to show to potential advertisers--Burkinabes! I think they're the leading consumers of ketchup--you should call Heinz. You're gonna be rich now.

And it's a good goddamn thing you talked to me last night, dilettard, otherwise I would be sticking pins in your voodoo doll for taking the time to comment on a blog with the spotty internet in West Africa instead of skyping me! Kathleen, you should be honored...and you should have him guest post about his travels..racy stuff.

I cannot stop laughing about your airport experience, dilettard07. Also, I am confident that you are my first and last post from Ouagadougou. That rocks.
