I've been buying Absinthe from overseas for years. I love the stuff. I think this is pretty exciting. From what the website says, this should be pretty good absinthe made in the traditional manner. I'll let you know as soon as I try it. The music on the website is really nice too.Oh yeah, I am posting again. Sorry I was away. . .long story. I have some incredible news to share coming later on tomorrow.

This billboard was put up in a Chicago neighborhood. That's right Chicago, Illinois. A state where a group called The Illinois Family Institute, is working very hard to get same sex marriage, civil unions, and any other form of domestic partnership constitutionally banned. Protect Marriage Illinois, a group formed by The Illinois Family Institute specifically to work on the "problem" of gay marriage, is actively seeking to get a referendum on same sex marriage put on the November ballot. Their goal like other similar groups is to "protect" marriage. This group, like Dick Cheney out hunting quail, has the wrong target. If they want to protect marriage perhaps they should get a petition to ban divorce or at least a ban on billboards advocating divorce. This morning as I was flipping through the news channels I saw several discussions taking place about this billboard, including one on The View. Everyone seems to agree that this ad is pretty inappropriate. Very few people seem to understand the fact that it's this type of mentality that threatens the "sanctity of marriage". There is no threat to marriage when two people of the same sex who love each other unconditionally want to have the same rights as everyone else.
After fumbling over his own speech and insinuating that the Queen was over 200 years old, our idiot President winked at the Queen. That's right floks, Yosemite Sam insulted the Queen, then looked her right in the eye and winked at her.
The Queen, with all the grace and dignity of a true Monarch reacted with nothing more than an extremly disapproving glare.
Seriously, this guy should just not be allowed out of the White House period.

Have you ever been bored enough to go and check out the games on your iPod? I've had an iPod in one form or another for the past 3 years and never once did I think that I would find any amusement in playing the games that are included on there. Well, this afternoon I started playing the music quiz game. It's actually a lot of fun, especially if you have a lot of music on your iPod. I have close to 15 GB on mine, so there's a lot of stuff that I don't listen to all the time or haven't listened to in a while. If you've never played this game, here's how it works: a random song clip starts playing and a list of 5 songs appear on the screen. You have to click on the right song as fast as you can, as the song plays on the choices start disappearing off the screen. The faster you click the correct song the more points you get. Big fun on a slow friday afternoon!
