His Name Is Mud

And my name is mad.
I voted today. In a special election that is costing the state of California funds it can't well afford to squander. An election mandated by a fraud of an actor, acting as a fraud of a governator. An election for dubious issues that were promulgated by the Republican party... but when said issues started to fizzle among the voters, said promulgator and his Republicans advised voters who were opposed to the whole thing to protest by not voting at all!
Right, Arnold.
You just got a bunch of "Nos." Officially.
I'm wearing my "I Voted" sticker, even as we speak.
Plus! We walked to the precinct, because the weather was so unexpectedly nice. And since the precinct was halfway to the cool retro restaurant down the road, we kept walking. And had a totally unseasonable mudslide to drink.

1 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Kahlua
1 oz. Bailey's Irish Cream
Mix with cracked ice in a shaker and serve in a chilled cocktail glass.

I'd like to be stuck in this kind of mud. What is it about coffee and chocolate which is just so sublime. Add something like alcohol and I am there!

Mudslides make the world seem right

My stomach is full of butterflies and I'm afraid to check the results...but I voted, and I took my five-year-old. I had to tell her before we went in the polling place, "Don't say anything about George Bush in there," as she is fond of expounding upon his shortcomings (wonder where she got that?).

I knew there was a reason I liked that Lisad so much!

Mudslides are great - as long as you have the metabolism of a teenager.

My neighbor put out a great, homemade lawn sign this week: "vote no on almost everything."

Cookie, I guarandamntee you'll enjoy my latest post - even if only for the twobuckchuck info.

Fingers crossed. Terminate the terd. Pardon my spelling.

Personal to johng:
Your blog is glitchy at the moment. I want to leave a loving comment, but it keeps throwing me off the page.

Vote on, one day we might change the world!! You have Arnold, we have Berlusconi- I think you might be better off...

johng said...

Hmm... that's odd - well, no worries - it's the thought that counts. Ain't it a lovely day?

....ahh nothing quite like it for cooling the blood..

MG: I like my blood hot. But isn't it hilarious that Arnold's measures failed to win in a landslide? They sank in a mudslide.

"...So, follow me, follow,
Down to the hollow,
And there we will wallow,
In glorious MUD!"

Sorry. Monkeygland started it. I had to finish it. Could't be helped.

Oh crap. I missed a cultural reference.

mrs d said...

Well I did say "obscure." :-)

The quotes are from The Hippopotamus Song -- one of many brilliant pieces of music hall style comedy from the British duo of Flanders and Swann. I grew up with their records in the house, so any F&S quote brings back wonderful childhood memories.
