On C-SPAN2, I saw Minority Whip Roy Blunt ask Majority Leader Steny Hoyer ask for this coming Friday off so that he
can find a new escort service spend extra time with his mother for Mother's Day. Hoyer gently explained that the business of house would have to be completed before time could be taken off for personal business. It is just heartening for me to see Rep. Blunt come to Rep. Hoyer, cap in hand, asking for time off - like a teenager trying to get out of mowing the lawn.
Oh, my stars and garters...

A doll that will fill all of your misery needs, the Precious Miseries Lil' Ragdoll Plush Doll

The doll is described further, Misery loves company, especially yours!"
(your company, or your misery?) "Meet Lil' Ragdoll who is shy and quiet, and cares for the unwanted at the Precious Miseries Manor."
So creepy, I love it! If I had a daughter, I would want her to have her very own suicide-prone doll right away! Keep it away from razor blades and prescription drugs, though.
The wonders of Google. Samurai Frog
is always using those big words! So I looked up one of his words on Google, and I found out that the word "fantasma" means a silent film
about a naked woman
. I'm not sure what the llama

Everyone was talking about the grey Iron Man suit
a while back, but Samurai Frog
