Honey, was that the doorbell? Could you see who it is, please?
Yeah. He’s here for some kind of a surprise inspection of our Christmas decorations.
Oh crap, it’s decoration inspection time already? Quick, put a plate of shiny Christmas balls on the table, and I’ll get our holiday mugs. Maybe that”ll satisfy him.
Let’s get the sad news out of the way first.
After an exhilarating five-year run, this blog is ending its run here. Websites change, and take new directions.
Blog Guy, I have a very specific fashion need and I hope you can help with it.
Excuse me. Back up just a minute. You become SO offensive that upscale guests at festive Christmas parties want to punch you out? Is that what you’re saying?
Blog Guy, I read that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is visiting Myanmar. That’s amazing! Have you been there?
Not to Myanmar, but I was there when they called it Burma.
Oh. Were you in Yangon?
Yes, but they called it Rangoon then.
But it’s the same city, right, the capital?
I’m totally confused. Rangoon became Yangon which became Naypyitaw?
No, Yangon is still Yangon, it’s just not the capital any longer.
This is too bizarre. Can you at least confirm that Clinton made it out of the airport safely?
Your correspondent reporting on the Mapuche indigenous people’s protest in Chile, pronounced their name incorrectly at least 2 times during the video.
She said Machupe instead of Mapuche, a big difference.
This was disrespectful to the Mapuche people. Please have your reporters familiarize themselves with the subjects of their stories.
