Badtux the Snarky Penguin

In a time of chimpanzees, I was a penguin.

Religious fundamentalists are motivated by the sneaking suspicion that someone, somewhere, is having fun -- and that this must be stopped.

My diet is working

I got on the scale last night and found that I have lost 5 pounds over the past week. Which is good. Like most rotund penguins, I carry more fat around than is really good for me.

However, the diet which achieved those results -- a diet of grief, anger, sorrow, and mourning over the fate of a city (New Orleans) that I loved and the people therein, combined with heartbreak and difficulty sleeping -- is not a diet which I recommend.

I've been putting on weight. All I've been doing is sitting in front of this damn computer, reading these heart-breaking stories, not getting the exercise I normally would, and occasionally drinking. Like I need the weight. Or the alcohol.

If this keeps up, they may have to bury me in a small piano case...

Medicate with chocolate. M&Ms are wonderful candy-coated pills. Mix with Penguinmints, and I can stay up 24/7 overwhelmed in my chocolate haze.

"Keep fighting for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce." -- Molly Ivins, 1944-2007 "The penalty good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men."
