"oh . . . by the way, bombs in london"

i am so confused by the american reaction. new york's governor up and thumping. did something happen in london after the attacks here that would lead us to think that both sides of the ocean need to be at code red?

we just have to do everything bigger. i swear these media sadists are praying for an attack here that is bigger than london's.

it just gets uglier and uglier . . . and now attention is off the G8 summit completely. sorry geldof, but you were a dork anyway and the rich men don't like your music (and this is what you get for not letting midge ure play at live8).

EDIT: 7/8/2005 so i don't look like such an anti new yorker.

A Letter To The Terrorists, From London
July 07, 2005

What the fuck do you think you're doing?
This is London. We've dealt with your sort before. You don't try and pull this on us.

Do you have any idea how many times our city has been attacked? Whatever you're trying to do, it's not going to work.

All you've done is end some of our lives, and ruin some more. How is that going to help you? You don't get rewarded for this kind of crap.

And if, as your MO indicates, you're an al-Qaeda group, then you're out of your tiny minds.

Because if this is a message to Tony Blair, we've got news for you. We don't much like our government ourselves, or what they do in our name. But, listen very clearly. We'll deal with that ourselves. We're London, and we've got our own way of doing things, and it doesn't involve tossing bombs around where innocent people are going about their lives.

And that's because we're better than you. Everyone is better than you. Our city works. We rather like it. And we're going to go about our lives. We're going to take care of the lives you ruined. And then we're going to work. And we're going down the pub.

So you can pack up your bombs, put them in your arseholes, and get the fuck out of our city.

emphasis added by me because i think that paragraph rocks. can you imagine if every new yorker felt like that? i know the party line is that they do. and i know we all say we are patriotic, but that bolded paragraph is a beautiful example to us, at least on how to word things.

o w m y h e a d

i had a dream about me and the dane being extras on a movie that rollins was in. and she and he started hanging out and i got all pissed and then it turned into another jump and run video game movie. it sucked because it rang completely untrue. my dreams need A Good Talking To.

chloe was just stretching out her toe tendons on hank's box and he smacked her. yep, my big fat peace loving henry just bitchslapped chloe for touching his box. it may be time to remove the box. when they get like this over an object i get a little worried. they each have their favorite sleeping places, but sometimes out of nowhere one will get really fierce about a particular spot, and i make the spot disappear to keep the peace (chloe just got over losing a cushion she particularly loved, there was too much fighting over it in the middle of the night - so nobody gets it - no i was not raised by solomon, there was no splitting. there was no grey. there was yes and no - at least i'm ruining cats and not children).
