More fabulous photos: check out my brother's pics of Avaaz's Million Messages to Obama wall. I wish I could be there to sign it in person.
Unrelatedly, when I check www.change.gov I get a message saying "No suitable nodes are available to serve your request". Apparently the entire "Agenda" tab vanished shortly before the site went down. Wonder what's up with that.
rosefox: What's for lunch? I vote for bacon sandwiches.
sinboy: Then you should make them.
rosefox: Why me?
sinboy: Because you voted for them.
rosefox: But... that's the end of my responsibility.
sinboy: If you vote for a candidate, you assume responsibility for his goals! You would be responsible for bacon sandwiches if you elected them president of breakfast. Yes we can nom nom nom!
rosefox: Did you vote for bacon sandwiches?
sinboy: My vote is my own business. But actually, I voted for Garden Cafe.
rosefox: Then it's a tie, and we need a recount.
sinboy: I voted for Garden Cafe. Who did you vote for?
rosefox: I voted for bacon sandwiches!
sinboy: We still have a tie, then. We need the Supreme Court! Or, no, the vice president! "Dick, what should we have for lunch?" "Raar, liberals don't get to eat!"
rosefox: Dick Cheney doesn't get to tell us what to have for lunch!
sinboy: We should ask Joe Biden, then. I will Google for "lunch Joe Biden". ..."Lunch with Joe Biden." It doesn't say what they ate!
rosefox: Where does that leave us? What's the culinary change we need?
sinboy: Let's ask President Obama. "Sandwiches... flatbread pizza from Cosí... salad." Ew, Cosí. There was no mention of bacon. So I win!
rosefox: You really don't want bacon sandwiches?
sinboy: No, I don't. I want healthy food. Like an omelette. ...With bacon.
Garden Cafe it is, I guess. I can probably get a bacon sandwich there, anyway. We're both theoretically attempting to eat better and exercise more, so, um, make that a bacon sandwich on whole wheat toast. Or a spinach and tomato omelette. With bacon.
rosefox: Your candidate won, so you take the first shower.
sinboy: You voted for it too, in the runoff election.
rosefox: Only because my preferred candidate wasn't really electable. I have no illusions of ideological convergence.
Why is "omelette" not in Firefox's spillchucker? Ridiculous.
Ah, change.gov is back, but minus the agenda; there's just a placeholder page claiming that there's a comprehensive agenda but not providing any details. Interesting.
