Darkness, Darkness...

My parents and I were having lunch in the living room this afternoon, tucking into a curry while watching the latest sordid developments in the Ted Haggard meth / "massage" scandal. While mom, a lifelong Democrat, laughed at the inanity of it all, dad, a Goldwater conservative, seemed unusually wistful. Mother and I discussed the particulars of the case - its ironies, its potential effect on Tuesday's elections, its effective cancellation of the Kerry fracas, etc. Dad seemed to listen attentively. He cleared his throat, made a sweeping hand gesture, and proceeded to ask about a plot of land he'd once owned 25 years ago in Florida...

Alzheimer's is a fucking bitch.

On Irresistibility

Salma Hayek, from this evening's episode of Ugly Betty. Thank Satan for TiVO, well-conceived telenovela adaptations, and large, perfect (natural) breasts on small women.
