I'm lolling disgracefully in the house while my beleaguered husband shovels. Lazy, lazy, lazy, me.

Anyway, because I feel great guilt and must volunteer to help (and because I'm totally into rolling in the snow) I present: the people on my me-zine, which you folks should have one of anyway.

The title is because I have some questions about the whole interning people thing, but they were mostly rhetorical, so I'll take it up later.

I'm hiding this 'cause it's huge. )

Did I mention D-Squared Digest, which I read at work, and Very Very Happy, which I just discovered through Rittenhouse and who is, he says, HAPPY.

The husband's reward for the sisyphean snow shovelling is Gettysburg, parts one and two.

Do you suppose that soldiers, officers at least, really had that orotund Walter Scottish way of speaking? I know they wrote that way, many of them, but it's hard for me to imagine that sort of thing in the midst of a battle, especially a battle of attrition.

Don't like Walter Scott. Don't, don't, don't. Don't care what Robertson Davies said. Walter Scott would have had Lysistrata killed defending her virtue and flung from a battlement in chapter seventeen.

I bet George Bush really dug Walter Scott Classic Comics when he was a kid.

People seem to want to see themselves as part of this wildly romantic 'chivalric' world he wrote about. Yo, genius bloc, you would have been serfs. Page 385, if you're lucky: "then her regal steed stepped in the intestines of a serf who was importunate enough to lie right where she rode on her headlong escape, so her faithful steward led him slowly for a time until he saw that the mighty creature's fetlock was not strained..."

Also the southern generals look as if they have assyrian sphinx' manes and beards, which is weird. I keep expecting them to be attacked by lions.

In closing, I have a mad intemperate passion for Sam Elliot.

Amid all the outraged cries for social workers to move children out of range of Michael Jackson, there has not been a peep about moving Michael Jackson out of range of television cameras.

And that seems unfair. Children, after all, can take care of themselves. Who is watching over Mr. Jackson?

His destiny for now seems to be in the hands of F. Marc Schaffel, a producer and director whose résumé includes gay pornography films and who resurfaced last week in Mr. Jackson's entourage to help negotiate the frenzied network bidding war for a second Michael Jackson special..

Neat Stuff

unwind your mind and rethread your head at Incoming Signals, for when life just isn't weird enough.

Featuring, amidst other things, Jabberwocky in various languages that are not whatever language Jabberwocky originally was in, and an asskicking sidebar of truly staggering eclecticism (which I almost never get to say, eclecticism, that is).
