Dinosaurs and (I'M A) Dunderhead

I want a new dinosaur named after ME.


Eds note: I obliterated the earlier version of this post after trying several times, without success, to actually insert spaces between my paragraphs.

I think I need to take a correspondence course in computer programming or formatting.

(Actually, I'm trying out Wordpress. I'll let you know how it goes.)


  1. I was kinda hoping you'd post something about the Canadian debates we've had recently. Did you watch them?

  2. I have big teeth too.

    You are dead sexy and I am dead sexy.

    I say let's run for President and VP of the 'free world' on the ticket of dead sexiness and the fact that we are for world peace and both desire a dinosaur to be named for us.

    My dino better be sexy as heck and be rocking a skull the size of Texas to fit my massive brain.


    One thing though...if McCain/Palin are elected we will be subjected to pains far worse than previously experienced. It will just be prefaced by a bunch of 'heck yeahs' and 'gosh dunnits, we're mavericks!'.

  3. When you're with the Flintstones
    you'll have a yabba dabba doo time.
    A dabba doo time.
    You'll have a gay old time.

  4. Anna:

    Didn't see any of the debates live, had a busy week of late work nights.

    Saw snippets of replays on Newsworld, though...and Harper was still his slippery Teflon self saying nothing, Dion was still very hard to understand because of his extreme French accent and Layton, as much as I'm a socialist at heart, will never win.

    Liz May might have a good message but as Dion found out, the environment isn't the issue people want to focus on.

    I hate Harper. He's a slithery snake whose roots are with Alberta's Reformers. The main thrust of his campaign is to make Dion look bad and to drive fear about him into the hearts of voters.

    More people will vote AGAINST Dion and Layton than they will FOR Harper, except that's where the X's will unfortunately have to go -- for the Tories.

    I hate to say it, but the Grits won't go anywhere with Dion at the helm, as smart as he might be.

    It's the whole language thing and his accent, and I realize how unfair that is and how politically incorrect it might be.

    Most Quebeckers will vote for the Bloc, I figure. That will hurt the Tories but it will hurt the Libs more.


    Hope you're feelin' OK...not long now...


    A ticket of dead sexiness, huh? That'd get a rise out of the American electorate, now wouldn't it?

    Being as I'm a Canajun, I'm not sure we could form such a ticket. If you can register us, I'll go for it.

    You'd be the pres and I'd be the VP, I gather. And your dinosaur would be?

    And I can't imagine anything worse than Bush...can you?


    Yep, that's what life's been like for the past eight years -- reruns of the Flintstones.

    Hope you're feeling better.

  5. Nice rant!
    If you want to separeate the paragraphs add some photos...
    love the Holy Grail angle.

  6. I agree that Dion cannot be prime minister because of his horrible english and thick accent. I was disappointed with the way Layton performed during the debate - focusing almost exclusively on attacking Harper. However, I was very impressed with May. It just seems that if I voted for May, it would be a wasted vote.

    * sigh *

    I hate politics.

    And, by the way, the Bloc seems to have lost much of its popularity in Quebec. I still cannot understand how the Bloc can even be included in a federal election. As far as I'm concerned, they should be charged with treason. After all, they are trying to rip the country apart.

  7. kidding?

    Only in Canada would we pay the salaries of those treasonous bastards? It's right out of a really bad 50s Sci-Fi movie!?

    My reasoning suggests that
    if Canadians really are that stupid, then we totally deserve it.

  8. Ok, I will try getting you a dinosaur named you. Happy?

    And if and when you join computer programming, take me along. I too have come to an dead end. I seem to be HTML challanged or something!

    I tried Wordpress. It is no bettr. Or maybe I do not know how to go about it. Now I have kept it as a mirror blog for my rooted one. Wordpress can import my posts from blogger which I try to do once a month or so.

  9. DC:

    What, have a photo for every para? I get that, but we'd be talkin' about 20-30 pix potentially.

    Not that I haven't done it...


    Dion's very intelligent, I'm sure, but he APPEARS to be not very strong. It's too bad, but appearances DO mean a lot.

    I like Layton's fiestiness and I love that he goes after Mr. Harper the Cowboy Clown.

    As far as the Bloc, it's all that politically correct thing. If they started a national aboriginal party with a federal leader, they'd have to include them too...


    I'd be a velociraptor if I had the choice...

    I haven't had a chance yet to dabble much over at Wordpress. I hope it's better than this.

    I've submitted questions to the Blogger Help Group but no's like there IS no solution.

    Or they think I'm an idiot for not being able to figure it out for myself...

  10. It would be cool to have dinosaur named after yourself!

    Those poor dinosaurs going extinct. Well, that's what they get for electing idiots during a crisis.

    I'm curious as to why you aren't able to make spaces between paragraphs. I thought all blogs had that New Post option, with a Compose button that you lets you type, and icons to let you edit or add effects to your posts.

    I found this site a while back, and I use it when I have use html tags, but only in the comments box. Maybe it'll be helpful for you, too.

  11. I want to be the one that bites the head off idiots.


  12. If you add a photo AFTER all of the text is done, and change the siz of a line or tow to emphasize, the text will magically seaprate back into paragraphs.

  13. and yes I left in all thowze spaling airors two bug u

  14. No! Don't go to the Wordpress side!

  15. By the way, someone sent me this little quiz. It turns out I should be voting NDP according to the quiz results.

  16. I have a hard time figuring out what kind of dinosaur I'd be. Was there a small and cynical one which rolled it's eyes at the rest of the dinosaurs, in their dinosaur-eat-dinosaur world, knowing it won't matter in the long run because they're all going to die...?? :)

  17. Eroswings:

    Thanks, man. I've used both the compose mode and the html mode. It's hit and miss, really.

    I'm just fed up with it all. The Blogger help group doesn't help at all, although Donn and MJ and you have given me some tips.

    I'll try 'em out.

    Your Zigginess:

    I would assume then you would be in the T-Rex class.

    As hard as it seems to believe that's where you would go, because you're so gorgeous, good hunting. :-)


    I don't believe it's that simple. But I do believe you're enough of a moron to spell that way.


    I won't if I can figure out how to blog the way I want to.

    (*Chorus breaks out in song: It's your blog and you can cry if you want to; cry if you want to; cry if you want to*)


    Cmon girl!!! EVERYONE except Donn should be voting NDP!


    That would be the Eeyoreasaurus, which thrived during the WinnieThePooh Era.

    (Good one!)

  18. Um, where are you!

    I need you in order to get through all the turmoil that is going on this election season in the Americaaaaa.

    Post dang it.

    Like NOW! :)

  19. Anna I picked Dion..big surprise.

  20. Awa:

    You need me?

    (*Rubs hands together, smirks devilishly*)

    Cmon, girl, the election season in Americaaaaa is all very easy to figure out! It's all Obama all the time!

    I have posted.

  21. Anna (Donn):

    I can't believe it, but I did that questionnaire...and I came out GREEN! Liz May!

    I'm goin' outside my apartment to hug the trees in my little lawn domain as we speak...

    At least you both came out as anything BUT Harper...

  22. noooooooooooooo!! say no to wordpress dude!!!
    and now you know how to insert paragraphs!

  23. Angel:

    Yep, my wordpress blog hasn't been touched. I'm stickin' around here, at least for now.
