An Oldie But a Goodie

I've got nothing much to say, I just couldn't stand that image of Pickles Bush and those two mutts in all that overly saturated color heading up my blog.
So, I present to you the Tampon Angel, which I think you can probably deconstruct so you can make some of your own.
They go beautifully with the Panty Liner slippers, which you can create by using one for the sole and crossing over another for the instep and decorating accordingly. Charming.
I have no Christmas tree again this year.
My cats are maniacs who would dismantle a tree within moments, right in front of me.
Same goes for lit candles or anything breakable displayed on any flat surface.
In fact, if I actually made any tampon angels, I may as well stuff them with catnip because the kitties would tear them apart anyway.
I think my kitties may be Jewish.
They care nothing about Christmas.

We keep looking for a place to put the tree... Maddie has to sleep downstairs now, and she has a pretty big bed. We look decidedly grinch-y in the meantime.

Love the tampon angels. Alas, we are beyond the tampon-wearing age.

Perhaps someone will do something clever with Depends.

It's never too soon to talk to your cats abut Jesus.

I'll put the making of tampon angels on the list of things to do to keep my kids out of trouble during the long winter break. Thank you for the idea! I'm sure they'll love it!

D-Cup, aren't your kids Jewish like my cats?

Just looking at the picture and not reading the text first, I thought "This is an ornament mocking Rudy Guiliani in drag, isn't it?"

A Movement for Participatory Democracy Sends Honest Goodbye to George W. Bush

Time and again the U.S. Constitution has been trampled since 9/11 under the jackboots of the George W. Bush Administration and an all too complacent U.S. Congress. In the wake of the landslide election results nearly routing the Republican Party from Washington, the time has come to take back our rights. One place to start is at with the momentum being built by

A veritable national movement is being facilitated by Kate Wheeler and her daughter Ashley who came up with the idea for this site as a way to speak out and release the frustration so much of America has felt after 8 years living under Son-of-Bush. The Goodbye to George W. Movement, as Wheeler calls it seems to be picking up speed rapidly.

“We just started the site and dozens of people have already written their letters. We think that the American People and the world need this. It’s a chance to tell Bush what they really think, a catharsis after so many years of a White House that promoted hatred and fear,” Wheeler said.

Wheeler pointed to the concept of homeland security as the ideological militarization of U.S. mentality. With the U.S.A. Patriot Act and subsequent legislation, Constitutional limits were taken off of federal law enforcement.

For example, the FBI has been requesting reading lists from libraries and bookstores; librarians and booksellers are prohibited from even speaking with a lawyer regarding the unconstitutional FBI requests.

According to the American Civil Liberties Union, by early 2008 more than one hundred anti-war protests had been attacked by authorities in recent years.

“Freedom of expression and democracy are among the values that the founding father amended to the U.S. Constitution and they are what has motivated us to launch the site,” Wheeler said by phone from her home in Georgia.

The Goodbye George Movement that Wheeler and her daughter initiated with sets a challenge, in a real sense, to put participation back into U.S. politics. In the United States people may turn out to vote but beyond that are infrequently given forums for the ongoing voicing of their opinion to policy makers.

“We see the Goodbye George Movement as the beginning of the end to politics-as-usual in our country. Today people are writing what the really think to President Bush. We are going to keep on top of Obama as well to see that the change this country needs really happens,” Wheeler concluded.

The letters written at are not only a historic undertaking as a step toward making American politics more democratic, they will also be preserved as part of history in the form of a book that Wheeler plans to publish. Copies will be awarded to the first 100 letter writers.

Goodness, Zippie--look what happens when you lower your alphabetic defenses.

Jews have angels, too... remember that ol' Jacob rassled one.

karenzipdrive said...

Oh please, LuLu, I can barely keep track of Christian stuff, now I'm supposed to know about a Jew named Jacob and some angel he rassled?
I wouldn't even know how to Google that story.
So, Jews have angels, huh? Imagine that!

I know of great things to do with depends in case anybody's traveling and needs a good place to slot contraband. Have crossed international boarders with my js rolled neatly in rows of ten, and wrapped carefully in plastic wrap and then inserted in a little opening in the depends and off we go into the wild blue yonder. Get strip searched and pee your pants. Works every time. Have even made it past drug sniffing dogs coming back from Jamaica. Don't tell anyone please. This is our little secret.

karenzipdrive said...

OMG That's the funniest thing I've ever heard!!!
Remind me not to smoke with you after you've been in Jamaica!

dguzman said...

Holy moly, that Utah Savage knows all the tricks.

I too thought your tampon angel was Rudy Jewels in drag. Nice work!

Distributorcap said...

every time you pull a tampon string an angel flosses his/her teeth

Holy Christ it DOES look like Rudy Giulliani.
