Jesus Onna Segway


* Walking the Freedom Trail backwards brings you right back into a life of indentured servitude with no representation. Well, either that or the Boston Public Garden. It's true!

Last night involved beer and steamed frankfurters and bad ketchup bottles and Rover, the happy white sphere hot air balloon on the Common (no, we couldn't ride, because they'd put a ladder in the way) and singing Art Garfunkel at a guy in the Public Gardens who may or may not have been making out with himself on the Swan Boat dock ("No," laurenhat said, "I think he's a doctor and he's performing an examination on that woman, and that's why she's lying down on the bench now") and snitching towels from the Ritz-Carlton bathrooms and having to call violacat to confirm which animals we saw nearby would or would not eat eeka13 (S: "Cockroaches?" V: "...not gonna eat her." S: "Ducks?" V: "Not gonna eat her. The little sparrow thingies, though..." S: "Little sparrow thingies?" e: "AAAH GONNA EAT ME") and friendly junkies and an all-around good time and unless you were one of the people I just lj-namedropped above, you missed it so there.

Anyway. Coolidge Corner is showing Jaws on Monday at 7:30 PM. Sharks must be high on anybody's "AAAH GONNA EAT ME" list. There'll be a cuh-razy beach party-type thing at 6:00 first. We may go ballooning on the Common beforehand, since Rover will be here until Tuesday.

So there.

Oh, thank heavens

Brought to my attention by the erstwhile kizlj, I am sharing with you a truly wondrous story of humanity and the wonders that happen when we all pitch in to help.
In an effort to help others affected by this disaster, e.l.f. Cosmetics
has created 10,000 special Hurricane Katrina Relief Beauty Kits that include:

* pressed powder
* shimmering facial whip for the eyes, lips and face
* lip moisturizer
* lip gloss
* mascara

. . .

* e.l.f. will be shipping these kits to people directly affected by the
hurricane disaster.
Cheer up, people of New Orleans. You may have lost your homes, your business, your livelihoods, your loved ones, and you're stranded at the Convention Center waiting for buses that may or may never come, there's no food, there's no drinking water, the dead are piling up around you, the people who are supposed to be the Good Guys are holding you at gunpoint while the Bad Guys are running amok doing their thing, but at least you'll all look like pretty pretty princesses!

This news, hot on the heels of slit's findings that Halliburton will finally get the chance to nab a sweet piece of this hurricane action and CNN's side-by-side comparison of what the Government's been saying versus reports from the scene, really serves to pick me up, pat me on the head, and say "Cheer up, lil' buckaroo, everything's gonna be all right."
