Thursday's Theme: Snark



Because I don't want to talk about Jesse Jackson, or jealousy, or condecension. Because the media would rather focus on that than the staring contest between Iran and Israel that's going on right now. Because people would even rather talk about that than the fact that American companies are getting rich selling equipment to China that they use to spy on their citizens. And no one even wants to think about what will happen when China has perfected that technology and sells it back to us - think we won't use it? I have four letters for you F I S A. Because I am so tired of process stories that I could literally scream I really need to focus on something else today.
I need some funny to mix into my pain.
Here minions, have some snark.

I got a pocket, got a pocketful of sunshine
I got a love and I know that it's all mine
Do what you want but you're never gonna break me
Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me


Thursday song I'm listening to right now

In the gym this morning:

Oh lady, let me take a look at you now. You're there on the dance floor making me want you somehow. Oh lady, I think it's only fair I should say to you, don't be thinking that I don't want you, cause maybe I do.

WNG said...

So now I'm singing at the top of my lungs in my head. It's a very weird feeling...hmm...

WNG said...

"Snow White is doing dishes again
Cause what else can you do
With seven itty bitty men?
Send them to bed and she
calls up a friend
says could you meet me at midnight?"

Susan said...

I hope the ring you gave to her turns her finger green
I hope when you're in bed with her...you think of me
I would never wish bad things but I don't wish you well
Could you tell by the flames that burned your words


Hah. Perfect song for what's in my head right now.

WNG said...

Please remind me to never piss you off, Susan.

Susan said...

It really is for the best to stay on my good side, g. I've got that crazy hillbilly training, after all. lol

Susan said...

Oh! Better song for what's on my mind:

Oh but my man you're someone elses man
And that aint the man that I wanna want
But you keep drawing me in with those big brown lyin' eyes

NoRegrets said...

REferring back to Susan's wish of songs I'd like to hear from someone:

We got the afternoon
You got this room for two
One thing I've left to do
Discover me
Discovering you

One mile to every inch of
Your skin like porcelain
One pair of candy lips and
Your bubblegum tongue

And if you want love
We'll make it
Swimming a deep sea
Of blankets
Take all your big plans
And break 'em
This is bound to be a while

Your body Is a wonderland
Your body is a wonder (I'll use my hands)
Your body Is a wonderland

Something 'bout the way your hair falls in your face
I love the shape you take when crawling towards the pillowcase
You tell me where to go and
Though I might leave to find it
I'll never let your head hit the bed
Without my hand behind it

you want love?
We'll make it
Swimming a deep sea
Of blankets
Take all your big plans
And break 'em
This is bound to be a while

Your body Is a wonderland
Your body is a wonder (I'll use my hands)
Your body Is a wonderland

Damn baby
You frustrate me
I know you're mine all mine all mine
But you look so good it hurts sometimes

Your body Is a wonderland
Your body is a wonder (I'll use my hands)
Your body Is a wonderland
Your body is a wonderland

NoRegrets said...

sigh. as does every woman, likely.

Susan said...

I could definitely use that right now, Nor.

OG, The Original Glamazon said...

I gotta meeting in the ladies room.
I'll be backe real soon!


*lol*

Well, at least there is only ONE day left in this week. And we all know Weekends are for Vodka!

Feel free to put that on t-shirt!

-OG

WNG said...

I'm going to remake the Virginia is for Lovers shirt, OG. Look for a line of vodka themed merchandise coming soon!!!

Sorry NoR, feeling a little too bitchy and snarky to comment on the John Mayer right now.

Susan's hillbilly ninja skills will one day make her a UFC champion!!! That would be awesome. I could totally be your promoter.

NoRegrets said...

Susan got me started... It's all her fault. :-)

I googled snark, and came up with the Hunting of the Snark by Lewis Carroll

WNG said...

It usually is. She's a troublemaker, that one ;)

NoRegrets said...

Oops, here's the book:

Susan said...

Trouble maker is definitely one of the kinder things I've been called ;)

NoR - I 've read it :-)
And if you want to do a whole post, series of posts or entire blog about hypocritical bosses that is just fine with me. We'll trade stories and vodka bottles until we feel better.

NoRegrets said...

Sorry, I'll delete my comment and make it a post...

WNG said...

NO!!! I'm just saying that I'm right there with you. I've already quit (under my breath) 5 times this morning.

Model Minority said...

You are fucking amazing.

Tone. Readability. Passion.

All there.

Adding you to my link list for the day.

Muah.

~m.

WNG said...

Model-
WOW!!!
I tell people I'm amazing all the time, but no one seems to get just how true it is!
Seriously though, thanks a LOT. I really love your blog (and now that you found me out I'm going to have to start commenting, huh?)

The CEO said...

Damn, working for a living is definitely cramping my blogging. It's too bad I enjoy eating and drinking as much as I do.

Jay said...

We're already being spied on all the time. In fact, I have a mobile camera mounted on a remote control spy plane monitoring you all the time right now. Hi-tech stalking baby.

Personal spy satellites for people who want to stalk babes from half-way across the country. It would make me a billionaire!

WNG said...

(sings)
I always feel like somebody's watching me...

Yeah, but it's different with us, Jay, I'm stalking you back ;)

slag said...

China? We can't even worry about our own country spying on us with our own technology! China? Isn't that the place you end up if you dig too deep?

WNG said...

Here's the thing, Slag. Our companies and theirs are working together (in violation of our laws, but what else is new) to perfect and fully miniaturize the technology needed to put entire cities under surveillance. China's already doing it, they're working out the kinks. This is what is next for us if we can't put on the breaks.
Of course no one cares, because Jesse Jackson pouted on national TV.
It's not the only thing - it's just another thing we're ignoring. And when the technology starts being used over here we'll all say 'where did this come from'?
I'm saying that if you think phone taping is bad, just wait. It gets so much worse. Not in the future - right now.

His Sinfulness said...

Suveilance of all citizens is the desperate act of a dying regime. That applies equally well in China and here...

Think well on this - while thinking is still legal.

WNG said...

It's sad when watching PBS scares you. Maybe no more documentaries or newspapers for me. Maybe that's why people watch Faux News - you don't have to think and all you have to be scared of are liberals...
