Pie! Pi Pi Pi Pi!

Readers of the blog may remember how much I love pie. I'm not sure how much I love PI pie, but I'm willing to give it a shot.

It's really exciting that Colin Powell has endorsed Obama and that more than $150 million was raised by the Obama campaign in September 2008. It shows that Obama's appeal is more widespread than far left liberals. Its a demonstration of the fact that while some of his political views are liberal, his temperament is conservative. It's that combination that was the basis of his appeal to me and, I think, to many others before and since.

But this excitement must lead to MORE action on the part of Obama's supporters, not less. We can't assume that because things are going so well right now, that the outcome of the election is a foregone conclusion. Do more. Until November 4th, do more. Whatever you CAN do, DO. Donate money. Donate time. Talk to people you know or don't know about Obama. Take nothing for granted and DO SOMETHING to ensure that Obama is elected President on November 4th.

A funny summary of the last presidential debate

This video in this link is really a scream. SNL could use that same script - word for word - with Obama and McCain and it would still make perfect sense.

Except for the lavender top hat....

BAD Joke

I just thought of a REALLY bad joke that, for some reason, I feel compelled to share.

What do you call a German shorts being worn by a chocolate snack cake?

Wish I could say I was sorry! ROFLMAO!

Happy Birthday Hugh Jackman!

He's celebrating his 40th birthday today. I have a present for him, but I suspect he won't come and get it.

Party Pictures

The first picture is me with my four siblings - in age order, of course! And best of all, I'M the youngest one in the picture. I know! Who KNEW? From left to right that's PJ, SAE, MED and AJW. I was really happy that hey could all make it for the party. Three of them live in western PA so had to drive 3 hours. MED lives in Lancaster county PA and drove 8 HOURS! Are they the best, or what? Thanks a lot you old farts! LOL

The second picture is me being silly at my birthday party. Someone shoved the plastic tiera with the lavendar feathers on my head when I started opening presents. I forgot I had it on, so it stayed on the whole time I opened presents. There must be 20 pictures of me with that darn thing on my head! But my favorite is this one with the magic wand that goes WITH the tiera. And of course the tee shirt just "sets it off" as they say. I bought the tee shirt when husband and I went to see Avenue Q when the toured here this spring.

VP Debate

Prediction: Sarah Palin is going to clean Joe Biden's clock tomorrow night. That's not to say she'll be the smarter debater and goodness knows that's not to say she'd be a better vice-president. But this is a debate, not reality. And it's entirely possible to win a debate and not say one intelligent thing.

Modern debates are all about zingers. Short clever sayings that capsulize an idea. The two campaigns have decided that the VP debate will be a series of short segments, none longer than 2 minutes. So, all Palin needs to do is to memorize a few prepared zingers written for her about something, say it with a smile and she wins.

Biden has been in the Senate for a long time. He's used to talking for long periods of time and at a very high (college or graduate school) level. If does that tomorrow night, he'll put the audience to sleep and they'll wake up only to find a smiling Palin joking with them.

But no matter, Obama will win in November!
