In the park...

Firstly, I shed one of my subscribers on bloglines.com, what a shame. I prize every one of my subscribers, and the total had climbed to a dizzy four! Including myself. In the whole cosmos, four subscribers. I would smile as I went to sleep thinking about me and my three subscribers, whose identities I am unaware of, gathering together, and who knows, four, it's a brilliant number, we could do all kinds of things...

play table tennis doubles
play Trivial Pursuit
play Twister
form a Beatles Tribute Band
pretend to be the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse
pretend to be the Fantastic Four

these are just some of the things we could've done.

Now there are only three!

so we could

hmmm, pretend to be the Three Degrees or the Three Wise Men

see, the options are limited.

I wish number four would come back.

A Walk in the Park

After the fuss in Memphis last week, when President Bush came to town (And what fun that was - when someone at the event Bush held to promote his social security plans, in a very level way, asked a critical question, they were escorted from the hall by security. That's the fate of people who dissent in the presence of Fuhrer Bush), there was a rally today to mark 2 years since the Iraq war/invasion/corporate takeover, whatever it is/was began. And it really was good, peace people had gathered in the Veteran's Memorial section of Overton Park (peace banners beside a statue of a soldier, bayonet fixed, frozen in a charge), a bus with Eyewitness to Iraq and Palestine written on it, a Marxist book stall, GM-free, meat-free, food, etc, to listen in sunshine to dissenting voices advocating regime change at home and that people should not give up the fight to bring the war to a close, to not let anyone say that it is a victory for "freedom" or "democracy".

Having your house bulldozed is not freedom or democracy in action.

Ooooh, a political blog post. That will probably lose me my other 2 subscribers. No matter, today that is what Extreme Unction was up to.

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend, eat some lentils and think of EU, dancing in a tie-dyed shirt - I know you want to!

hehe, you wouldn't believe it, but that's exactly what I'm going to do for the next 3 days... sit around in a tie-dye t-shirt, eat lentils and talk of peace.

As you have now posted something critical of our Fuhrer, your blog has now reached perfection.

Congratulations. I salute you!
