Still Waiting

That’s right. Still waiting to see if my pepper seeds from Wahaca at Canary Wharf will actually grow. I hope for Wahaca’s sake that they do.

A Little Slice of Americana

Herman Cain, I Don’t Like You

(Watch video on CNN)

On second thought, I wouldn’t appoint a woman to my cabinet because she’d be too emotional. I’d have to make sure she was thoroughly committed to this country as opposed to just letting her emotions get the better of her.

I also wouldn’t appoint a black person because most of them are on crack cocaine and I don’t accept druggies trying to run the government and make drugs legal. *lightbulb moment* Oh wait, I’m black and I’m not on crack and I’m not walking my five kids by five different moms down to the welfare office, maybe all black people aren’t so bad afterall!

Anyway, I also wouldn’t appoint a Christian because they only support God’s Law and not the law of these United States. Theocracy is not acceptable… except when it comes to marriage, then it is perfectly acceptable to make a law based on a definition rooted in religion.

Similarly, I wouldn’t appoint a Canadian because they’re just a bunch of socialists. And no Jews because…. well, you know…..

*bangs head on table*

Honestly, where DO we dig these people up to run for government? Can’t we have a litmus test for racism please?

Oh, and Mr. Cain, ‘Muslim’ is not a synonym for ‘terrorist’ as you seem to be implying. ‘Terrorism’ is a particular form of strategical tactics. Everyone uses terrorism, including the United States government. ‘Muslim’ is also not a synonym for ‘those brown people over there who hate us that have also seemingly infiltrated our country and are demanding sharia law.’ Since having another form of law would be unconstitutional anyway, and it’s not like 3/4 of states would ratify an amendment to change that, why are you making such a fuss?

Last Day

How did I spend my last day in London? The sex exhibition at the Natural History Museum in South Kensington and Mexican food from Wahaca at Canary Wharf. Oh yeah.

I finally got to see Isabella Rossellini’s Green Porno which I saw on that Sunday morning show that has all the suns everywhere on set. What is that show called? You know what I’m talking about it. It’s probably called the Sunday Morning show or something like that…I’m pretty sure it’s on CBS.

Anyway, I’m back in Chicagoland now so this blog will probably be on hiatus until September.

If You Find Yourself at Canary Wharf Around Lunchtime, Dear Lord, Run Don’t Walk

Just trust me on this one. It is no fun to find yourself at Canada Square (the shopping area where the tube drops you off) and see the sea of ravenous business people heading your direction. It makes me shudder to think about it and I’ve only been so unlucky with my timing to experience this phenomenon twice.

In other news, it hailed today!

The Oodles of Fun That is the Student Loan Bubble

My loans have shifted from Sallie Mae to My Great Lakes which would be fine, except that My Great Lakes applies payments however it wants! With Sallie Mae I could put my payments towards the principal, but now zero goes to principle.

This is obnoxious! I mean, come on! This left me no choice but to pay the lump sum of interest so that I can start paying the principal plus the lesser amount of interest that accumulates every month.

As you can tell, I am not amused.

BBC News: Stuffed toy tiger sparks police hunt

No, don’t worry it’s not the stuffed toy tiger I photographed weeks ago near Southwark Park but is located in Hedge End, Southampton.

Quite a laugh though. It seems Londoners are better at picking out the fake tigers from the real ones!
