The B-Day Weekend Hath Begun!

That's right! So why the heck am I sitting at a work computer this very moment? Ahh yes waiting a bit before I head off to a meeting. Since I'm here I may as well recap on this weeks Items of Note (is that correct grammar wise?).

ION's
  • Rosie O'Donnell had a most graceful moment on "The View" this week when she referred to an episode being so popular that folks in Mongolia would say "ching-chong-ching-chong." I suppose that is how Mongolians speak of course. That racist fool can suck it!
  • My officially declared my love for Amy Sedaris null & void. I won't have a thing to do with her. That racist fool can also suck it!
  • I did not have sex this week but has some really good chocolate from Pix Patisserie last night that made me very horney! I want to suck it!
  • Discovered the website eatwild.com. Grass fed meat all the way baybee! Suck it down!
  • Corn that is grown with petroleum is in every fawking thing. Yum yum. It sucks!
  • Baking soda is the great cure-all for most problems
  • The L Word is coming!!!!!!!!!!
  • I was told today I'm the prettiest woman on staff. Awwwwwww!

That's it for now. Check out the Dove film in the post above!

What happened to nullify your love for Ms. Sedaris?!? What'd I miss?

I think calling Mary Anne Ching-chong & me a negro killed it for me. Racism just ain't funny!

Personally I think she uses terms like that to identify that racism is in the culture. Something many people try deny, even to the point of suppressing the identifying of their own racist thoughts.

It's funny because a person may think something like that in the privacy of their own mind but never express it. Handling taboo subject matter in a shockingly casual manner can be a very humorous way of approaching something shameful.

HOWEVER, calling people--who are not in on a prepared joke like one would find in, say, a television show--racist or borderline racist names IS inappropriate and understandably offensive.
