Buying Friends 2.0

A new low in social networking:

Welcome to Fake Your Space. You have found a new and exciting service which offers help to all the men and women out there who don't feel like they are popular enough on social networking sites such as MySpace and Facebook. If you are tired of seeing everyone else with the hottest friends and want some hotties of your own, then this is the place for you.
: No! Privacy is very important to us at Fake Your Space. We understand that you want your friends to look as normal as possible and as far from fake as possible. This is what we specialize in. We actually do make you look more popular.

Except -- unless your BFF appears in the naughty section of your local video store, I don't think these friends look "as normal as possible":

When you feel yourself getting Seasonal Affective Disorder this year, please do yourself a favor and watch this:

Trip to Santa Barbara/San Diego

(1) A large part of our trip was spent driving (though to be fair, this photo is unrepresentative since Dean drove a large portion of the way). We drove down to Santa Barbara on Tuesday and stayed with Dean's friend Chris. On Wednesday we made the dreaded drive past LA which was painful but not as painful as it could have been.
On the return trip, we got up at 4 am (!!) on Saturday to avoid the traffic and made it to Mountain View in 6.25 hours. I repeat, 6.25 hours. If you can't appreciate that number, you've never made the 8-14 hour drive.

(2) Dean, Emily and I went to the Zoo which was fabulous. Here is Emily and my Huge Gigantic Mouth. When I was a kid I got sort of sick of the zoo because I'd always have to go when we had out-of-town visitors but now it had been long enough where I hadn't visited it in awhile and it was so awesome. Have you ever seen a rainbow-butt monkey? Please make a point of doing so if not.

(3) One the coolest part of the zoo was definitely the Making Out Hippos. They are awesome. And so, so fat.

(4) We visited the house Dean's dad grew up in and suddenly the world got all wobbly. Okay, Dean just tripped and I took a photo at an opportune time, but let your mind pretend.

I don’t own an iPod. I would never wear an iPod… If this is your primary focus in life - the machines… it’s going to have a staggeringly negative effect, all of this, for America… did you ever talk to these computer geeks? I mean, can you carry on a conversation with them? …I really fear for the United States because, believe me, the jihadists? They’re not playing the video games. They’re killing real people over there.

-Bill O'Reilly

Being a geek is letting the terrorists win!

Newly Appointed Chief of Family-Planning Programs is The Suck

The Bush administration has appointed a new chief of family-planning programs at the Department of Health and Human Services who worked at a Christian pregnancy-counseling organization that regards the distribution of contraceptives as "demeaning to women."

"A Woman's Concern is persuaded that the crass commercialization and distribution of birth control is ... degrading of human sexuality and adverse to human health and happiness," the group's Web site says.


Keroack's outfit deceives women about other issues as well. It uses a combination of dubious statistics and scripture to attack the efficacy of condoms and the very idea of safe sex. "God requires those who know Him to remain pure until marriage - no sex, in fact, not even a hint of sexual immorality," it says. "Marriage is a covenant between a man and a woman to reflect Christ and His bride, the church."


religion + our government, now there's a marriage made in heaven.
