First and foremost, Happy Birthday, Emily!

Please feel free to leave a comment below for the birthday girl, if I you (or I) can figure out how to work it. (Click Here!)

On a vaguely related matter, if you're ordering flowers from a online site, a site that's entire purpose is to deliver flowers, shouldn't the delivery fee be included in the price? There's no way to pick up these flowers, the whole point of the place is just to deliver them...I think that's rather slippery, FTD. Slippery indeed. Now, I want it made clear to the birthday girl that this is not even the slightest concern, and if she spends even a moment thinking about it, I will send her flowers every day for a month as punishment. But the principal of the thing seems a bit wrong.

Rosie O'Donnell has apparently gone and offended fundamentalist Christians on her new gig on The View, and people are acting like everything Rosie O'Donnell is, and, in fact, everything most people are, didn't offend fundamentalist Christians from day one. Her exact words: “Radical Christianity is just as threatening as radical Islam in a country like America where we have separation of church and state.”

You don't have to know me very well to know that I agree. This is obvious enough that I, in fact, would not be blogging about this at all had I not read this commentary on the whole thing. In it, pundit wanna-be Robert Paul Reyes writes a short and simplistic agreement to her words, blatantly disregarding, on multiple occasions, the functionality of a semi-colon and ending the article with "You go Rosie! You go girl!"

This begs the question-- why the hell is this guy getting paid to write grammar-killing blurbs about celebrities and politics while I write this drivel for less than 25 visitors a day? The feeling that I need to be doing more with my writing has begun to build up, once again. Let's see how far it gets me this time.

I mean, I know I'll never be on Robert Paul Keyes' level. I let that possiblity slide on by when I passed 11th grade English. Jackass.

On with it.

It seems some people have tried to leave comments, sadly unsuccessfully. So I, myself, shall try, and see if it works.

This commentary by a fellow blogger, entitled "News Flash: Rosie O'Donell is still a Pissed Bull Dyke Life Loser" makes the Robert Paul Keyes character look like Fareed fucking Zakaria. Never underestimate the power of idiots who can self-publish.

Hey. What are you looking at *me* for?

"functionality of a semi-colon"?? Only an anal-retentive nitwit could come up with a phrase like that. For the second time in the last couple of days you mention this semi-colon-impaired writer. I notice this guy has almost 30,000 hits. Methinks, I smell jealousy. Sweetheart, your blogs are full of typos and grammatical errors. With the mainstream press and bloggers making snide comments about Rosie's sexual orientation, you should have been glad that this guy's essay was posted on the Web site. But no, you obsess about semi-colons. Don't bother pointing out my errors, I'm not a writer. Instead of trying to be so smart -- try being a decent human being.

Wow, Debbie. I'm deeply affected by your, uh...completely disproportionate response. I'm definitely going to take lessons on how to be a decent human being from someone who surfs onto a random blog then attacks the writer in a comment space that was only opened in the first place to wish someone a happy birthday.

Step 1, be more like Debbie.

Awesome. I am on my way.

Oh, and by the way, that thing about me needing to work on being a decent human being...that's some original stuff, right there. Wonder where you got such precise, insightful phrasing. Oh, wait, maybe it was the title of the website. The one where I openly admit to my intellectual snobbery.

Tie your tubes, Debster.
