But don’t worry, I’m not insulted. I’d be the first one to tell you that I’m a terrible choice for hostessing Writing in the Raw. “No batter” indeed…
And although I’ve had months to ponder the concept, I have nothing to say, and even less inclination to do so. There hasn’t been a reasonable, coherent, or relevant thought in my head for quite some time now. It’s been lovely.
I hate malls. And I especially hate what’s known in my area as ‘the mall’, although i live pretty much equidistant from two. We only go when there’s a need. And by ‘need’, I mean that we ‘need’ the right jewelry to go with our fancy party dress, or our ipod needs something specific that we can only get from the source. These are relative needs, but if you’ve recently parented a 14-year-old girl, you’ll agree that ‘need’ is apt.
So ‘the mall’ has decided to spiff up its image, courting some higher-end anchor stores to fill some pretty costly vacancies. I understand that their need, also relative, is real. The mall has been there for nearly 30 years, and those empty stores probably do cost us all in the long run. I don’t pretend to understand such high-falutin’ economic principles….or the high-falutin’ anchor stores, for that matter…but I’m sure there is some truth to ‘the mall’ management’s need to fill those stores.
no, its not breaking news…it’s me. i’m taking a (at least) 3-week hiatus from the a.m. pony.
there’s no definitive yet as to what, if anything, will replace it. but please always remember that ‘Muse in the Morning” and “Docudharma Times” (or any alternate news thread) always function as open threads as well….
We dharminions dont appear to be morning people anyway…at least from my east coast perspective. 😉
Tonight’s ‘Funkalicious Friday’ is presented with my sincerest apologies to ‘K9K’ and ‘BD’…I’m not fit to hold your usb cables….
So in the spirit of filling in on someone else’s funkalicious time slot….and with full awareness of my own lack of funkaliciousness….tonight’s installment will be dedicated to cover songs.
Dylan wrote it, Jimi rocked it….
I recently had the opportunity to see “The Devil Came on Horseback” on the National Geographic channel (where it will be shown again Friday at 6 p.m. EDT).
It is the story of a U.S. Marine Captain named Brian Steidle, who takes an ‘oversight’ position in Darfur, armed only with a camera, to monitor a cease-fire between the Muslim north and the Christian south.
The first round was amazing…i always love the regular-season games, and then always pout, once the playoffs start, that they haven’t been playing this hard all year 😉 im such hockey brat!!
Anywho…here’s our first round results…
Montreal (1) over Boston in 7
Pittsburgh (2) swept Ottawa
Rangers (5) over NJ in 5.
Philly (6) over Washington in 7
Detroit (1) bested Nashville in 6
San Jose (2) beats Calgary in 7
Dallas (5) beat Anaheim in 6
Colorado (6) over Minnesota in 6
I didn’t include the # of games predicted in the table because it was 2 am and i was tired…i hope to add them in soon…

I’m not usually one to jump all over the news story of the day, much less the sex scandal of the day…evidenced by the fact that it’s been a full 2 weeks since the story broke…
And I have to admit, I haven’t followed the Eliot Spitzer story very closely. Until just a couple of days ago, I’d have to say I didn’t really much care who the governor had sex with, for how much money, over which state lines, etc.
I probably still wouldn’t care, if I hadn’t recently been clued in to the fact that Ashley Dupre, the woman who had said sex, took said money, and crossed said state lines, has a ‘magic vagina’, which has been called the prettiest vagina in New York. And, no, the link isn’t to a picture of her vagina, nor have I seen any. However, this picture attempts to show us the various ‘features’ which could, possibly, make a vagina worth $5000. a night. Yep, that’s just a rental. You don’t even get to keep it.
