plumber visit

So, yesterday we tell the rental agency about the leak on the bathtub (not too bad now but leaks tend to snowball fast) and how the kitchen hot water is running slower than molasses. You'd think by now I would know that the plumber would show up first thing in the morning. You'd think. I got woken up and I stumbled around trying slip on some clothes quckily. Opened the door to see the plumber and his young daughter. Yeah, school's out btw. I was wondering what she was going to do. I turned on the TV in the living room in case she wanted to watch it but her dad has her being the gopher. Hmm, he just fixed the bathtub leak, now, on to the kitchen!

all done

The bathroom leak was due to a worn stem. Twas replaced. The slow hot water in the kitchen was due to build up of gunk brought to us by the wonderful water system of Barstow. :o/ Seriously, this is one of the reasons why I don't drink tap water.

Gulf War 2 vets, hurry now!

A US brothel is offering free sex to US troops who took part in the war against Iraq to thank them for their endeavours abroad. [...]

Instead of a compass, toothbrush and soap, the pack handed to soldiers who turn up at the brothel includes condoms, lubricant and a free sex session - with a value of up to $1,000.

"We wanted to show our appreciation for everything they've done," Dennis Hof, the proprietor, told BBC News Online. "We wanted to give these guys some special care and attention."

D'Souza and Coulter on Aliens, part 2

COULTER: Here Hicks and Ripley share a quiet moment. Do you find this scene erotic? Hicks teaching Ripley how to shoot the plasma rifle?

D'SOUZA: I don't know. It makes me a bit uncomfortable.

COULTER: "Show me everything," Ripley says, "even the grenade launcher." That's a very erotic line to me. Now Ripley, fresh from having learned how to wield a weapon, goes to Newt. We find little feral Newt sleeping under her bed. So, Ripley joins her, and the liberal face-hugger scampers into the room very nearly impregnating them both. As we've discussed, face-hugging raises complicated issues for conservatism.
