Rock Always Says It Better

"You can put lipstick on a pig. It's still a pig."
-- Barack Obama

"Obama was referring to Gov. Sarah Palin ... Who has been talking about lipstick lately? It was obvious."
-- McCain campaign spokesman Brian Rogers

"She likes wearin' lipstick, she likes French cuisine, but she won't let me use my passion unless it's in a limousine. She got me under pressure."

Makin' Canadian Bacon

How hot is my life these days? Check out the On Demand options I perused this weekend.
  • All Wet
  • Around the Block
  • Doing It Together
  • I Love to Pretend
  • Just for Laughs
  • New Places
Aw, yeah.

Then I made sure I hadn't mistakenly left the Caillou section of On Demand. Nope. I dialed up an episode; I don't remember which one. It's when Caillou whines and has feelings about stuff. You know the one?

Once it was rolling, I sat back and took myself to that place parents go when they have no book or notebook or internets, but still opt to listen to the low hum in the back of their heads rather than watch the children's show in front of them.

Now re-read this post in your best Barry White voice. Aw, yeah.
