Penny Lane

Guess what film is opening in Canada.

Guess who's flipping out about the possibility of "picketers" (because there were so many of them here, right?). Can anyone name one flipping "protest" against any showing of Expelled? Neither can I.

I wonder who will picket or try to crash? (There was a big hoo-haw over the screening at the Mall of the Americas when "raving atheist" biologist PZ Myers got ejected by line producer Mark Mathis.) Perhaps I will recognize some prominent local figures strutting importantly on the sidewalk.

Picketers please note, there is a wide sidewalk, and plenty of coffee shops nearby. The restrooms in the Cumberland Terrace are usually pretty clean too.

Be reassured, picketers! The government-funded Nanny Monster is always right, and she says that neither the universe nor life forms show evidence of design, despite the evidence. And in our random universe, the biggest Monster should rule, and that is She.

Yadda, yadda, yadda...

First of all, this breathless tactic ("Please picket! Please picket our film! We won the lawsuit and lost the war! We need more publicity now that we've run out of new angles!") gave me a flashback. (Yes, this is the same nutball group that also culminated in my contacting the FBI. Sheesh.)

Second of all, it reminded me of the other times that Denyse O'Leary poisoned her own well by opening her mouth.

Thirdly, it makes me think that "Nanny Monster" is a good nick-name for Denyse. (Do we need reminding as to why?)

Fourth, it makes me think that, as with the neighborhood nutballs who comprised the former neighborhood group, something very, very unexpected and existentially just is about to happen.

In anticipation, shimmies to Pharyngula and U Dream of Janie.

Oh! And don't forget - "How Life Began" is on the History Channel tonight (please let it not be inaccurate and suck), and Ken Miller will be on The Colbert Report.

(P.S. There was "a big hoo-haw" at the screening of Expelled that Rev. Barky and I attended? Well, I guess there were as many "hoo-haws" as there were women attending, no?) :-D

That woman is completely off her nut(s).

Denyse O'Leary, queen of TARD.

(Thank you for your link love, Kristine. Kisses and Shimmies to you!)

(P.S. I'm gettin' pretty good, cuz Kate and I have been watching Shimmy quite a bit.)

Y'know, sometimes there's just nothing as fun as a stroll down memory lane...


Thanks for that too, Kristine.

Xtra kisses for you.

Picket!?! Protest!?!

Only for events that actually matter.

As for the "Nanny Monster", only if the monster's name was Morbo.

Yes, fond memories, JanieBelle. Kisses right back atcha!

Kisses to you, too.

Oh hell, kisses all around. That'll gag Denyse for sure.

Lots of tongue, too. That would just make her (more) insane.

...and groping. There should be groping.

uh.. y'know,.. to piss off Denyse. Yeah. That's the reason. To piss off Denyse.

A bunch of lunatic protestors have crashed the gay marriages going on in California instead.

That should make Denyse NannyMon happy.

oh just fuck her and the horse that road in on her.

I'm sorry, but she and her ilk are disgusting pieces of spooge. Nothing more.

Who the fuck would be so goddamned heartless and classless as to try and ruin somebody's wedding?

*thoroughly disgusted*

That should, of course, be "rode".

I may have been a bit upset in my previous comment, and that may have affected my ability to spell.

I can still spell "MorphoDyke", though.

Apologies, and kisses

No worries - that made me laugh ("and the horse that rode in on her")!

Really, did these homophobes hit every branch on the way down from falling out of the ugly tree? What losers.

But never fear, Sulu has phasers locked. Shields up, and prepared to fire birdseed on September 14! (Cute pics, I must say.)

I think we should have a blog-day on that day - "blogger birdseed" or something.

Oh - and congratulations on the shimmying. Fun, isn't it?

Speaking as a veteran of many GLBT events, I would be disappointed if all of these loving christians did not show up. Please do not let me be misunderstood, I would love it if they just stayed home. But it would not feel right if there were not right thinking people did not inform us that we were going to hell and were destroying civilization.

I have to admit, it gives me a sense of power that I am not entitled to.

(Looks at O'Leering's picture at the UD website.) Isn't her name actually spelled "Dennis"? :) Oh, wait, you mean it's (shudders) female????!!!!??!! Why, that would make her just like Edith Prickly. . . . no wonder they call her Granny Porcupine, eh?


Eight words that are not allowed to be published at Granny's blog: "If you don't like abortions, don't get one. . . ." Don't ask me how I know that. :)

Erm... Sorry. Jes' call me the Godwinbot. But it sorta wrote itself...

Well, "Patrick" over at Uncommon Descent has just drawn a parallel between Dr. Ken Miller talking about evolution on The Colbert Report, and streaking! "Interesting parallels," says Patrick. Parallels?

Are we going to be throwing birdseed for someone else, Patrick? When somebody comes out of the closet?

Honestly, these repressed Baptists - it's like squeezing a toothpaste tube with the cap still on. The stuff just comes out another way.

"The stuff just comes out another way."

I could go there, but I won't.


It's a lot of fun, and teaching my hips to do new things has had ...other... lovely ramifications.



I'm thinking now that the shoe is being put on the other foot, entitlement may be in the eye of the beholder. I say wallow in it.

A.J., Someone recently addressed me/us (humorously) as "The Collective", so I'm thinking of having a T-shirt made that says:

"Resistance is futile,
Show us your thong, puny human.
(We have beads.)

The Sexy Borg Collective

But... my thong already has beads.

You guys. Ow!

Thongs. Last night I made Rev. Barky stand behind me on the escalator in Ikea so that I could prevent that thing from sawing me in half!

TMI? :-D

Well, it probably goes without saying--but it seems to me after havin' copped to the beads, I'd really have no place complaining. ;)

You both gave me a good chuckle, one right after the other!

I guess I'm giggly today. Kristine, could you fix AJ's name for him? I'm pretty sure he didn't mean to put his Email address in the name field there.

(And I'm pretty sure I'm the queen of TMI, so no worries.)

Damn but I am happy I am a dyke. I do not have to worry about such uncomfortable underwear.

Thongs in general, or just ones with beads?

And what does the one have to do with the other?

Re the address: that's a pretty public one anyway (public on the first page of my blog and other places) and already armed to da teeth with antispam mojo. So it's really no worry, tho' thanks, Janiebelle. Artifact of certain other blogs where the sequence is address/name/url and not paying much attention, I guess.
