Guest Blogger Through Paraphrase

Yeah, it's been a while since we've had one of these.

This comes from the fabulous flatmate, Gina (who I would refer to as a roommate, but that's kind of untrue, since we each have our own room, you know?). Gina was in a wedding last weekend, and had the following conversation with the groom, henceforth referred to as "F", the night before the wedding:

G: You know, it might not be a bad idea to get her a card or something tomorrow.

F: No! We agreed there would be no presents! No presents!

G: Yeah, but just a card! A card would be nice.

F: Fine. So, uh, do they make "I'm Going to Marry You Today" cards?!

G (muffling laughter): ... ... ... I think a regular "I Love You" one will do the trick.

F (relieved): Cool.

Dire Warnings

I've been rather chuckly lately over the widely varying personal political views that I'm exposed to as a side effect of my life. The consistent theme that intrigues me the most is the need to impart the IMMEDIATE DANGER which I would face should _____ win the election. It comes from both sides in pretty equal amounts. So apparently it doesn't matter who I vote for, since the world's going to end either way.*

*Ha, kidding. I know it matters. But it's none of your business, that's for sure.
