RTT on the road style

I'm trying to get myself settle in Houston this week so I scheduled all my posts last week. This shouldn't prove to be much of a problem considering I'm not very current or topical. So, in the interest of not being current or topical I give you my Random Tuesday Thoughts this week.

Not sure what this is? Head over to Keely's The Un-Mom to find out.






I saw this last week on MSN.com. It seems that the Colorado DMV took issue with it. I can't understand why? The owner just wanted to profess her love of tofu.


The Druggers (the family with 18 children) are set to make some big announcement on Monday. Please God, don't let it be that they are going to have number 19. The first thing that came to my mind when I heard that they were making an announcement, after the please god thing, was something that Groucho Marx said to a woman with 12 children:

Groucho: "Wow, 12 children".

Woman: "My husband loves me"

Groucho: "Madam, I love my cigar but I take it out once in awhile".

Mister Drugger, take it out once in awhile!

(P.S. turns out their oldest boy and his wife are expecting.)

How bogus is this? President Obama is giving the commencement speech at the upcoming ASU commencement ceremony but unlike every other speaker he is not going to receive an honorary degree. Sure, he probably doesn't care but come on! This is the statement put out by the ASU PR people:

ASU Media Relations Director Sharon Keeler says, unlike other universities, the processes for selecting commencement speakers and honorary degree recipients are independent. She says that honorary degrees are given “for an achievement of eminence” and that Obama was not considered for an honorary degree because his body of achievements, at this time, does not fit within that criteria.

Wait a minute! His body of achievements doesn't fit? WTF? He's the fricken' President. They gave one to movie director Edward Blake. Okay, Okay, the Pink Panter movies were terrific but do they beat being the first black president? hmmmm.......ASU may want to rethink this.

You can read about it here, here and here. Then read about them rethinking this after some really bad press. The pinheads!



The secret to martial bliss is to not have kids. Now, they tell me! Shit!


Love,

  1. I seriously read that license tag as "I love tofu." My mind is pure.

    And the Duggers. . .whew.

    And Obama doesn't need their stinky honorary degree anyway because he has much nicer ones!

    Sometime you'll have to tell me about this mysterious "scheduling posts," and how it is accomplished.

  2. Hmmm...um...let's just say I have a very impure mind and read that as "I live to..." Well, you get it...

    And here I thought the key to marital bliss was to stay single.

  3. That is so crazy about the Duggers. Just last night in the grocery store line my husband picked up a People magazine about them having their 18th baby, and I was saying that the new DIL had some kind of pressure on her to PRODUCE. Looks like she's already on board with the family philosophy. That took, what? 6 months? Go, Team Dugger!

  4. "The secret to martial bliss" - Is that a freudian slip? I know sometimes it's war around my house. :)

    That license plate cracked me up. The state of Colorado does have a point.

  5. Yeah, I would have a problem with that license plate too. Love tofu? More of a instense like.
    The Duggars need to have their sperm examined. There's something creepy about their reproduction rate.

  6. I can see why that's the secret to marital bliss, kids cause stress and stress causes marital problems. WTF is right, he is the president, those assholes are dumb.

    Good luck getting settled, let me know how it's going!

  11. The darn Druggers - taking over the world by procreation. They DNA is spreading every where.

    Just give the President his pretend degree already.
