This Week's Headlines

W's Records Gone: Must Not Have Had Damning Info In Them -- Military payroll records that could more fully document President Bush's whereabouts during his service in the Texas Air National Guard were inadvertently destroyed, according to the Pentagon. Coincidence?(AP 07/09/04)
Bowie's Pipes Get A Good Scrubbing -- Musician David Bowie underwent an emergency angioplasty to open a blocked heart artery in Germany and is recuperating, his spokesman said. At 6'1" and weighing 116 lbs, the surgeons successfully scraped 18 pounds of decades-old heroin tar from his pulmonary artery. (AP 07/09/04)
Bush Gets Layed -- White House says it has been "quite some time" since Bush and indicted Enron CEO Kenneth Lay talked with each other--at least a couple years since Lay gave Bush over $200K, co-chaired an economic summit for Bush Sr. and was a "pioneer" status fund-raiser for George W's 2000 campaign. Despite their alleged distance, Bush still had a nickname for Lay: Kenny-Boy. Don't we all give strangers nick-names? (AP 07/08/04)
JackieO Gains Super Powers: Ability To Disappear Off Blog Comments for Weeks At A Time -- The irreverent rockophile iPod listener and T|P Blog diva vanished from the comments section of the Turner|Phelps Blog for more than a week, only to reappear for a quickie this week. Where does she go? What is she listening to today on iPod? Will she return? Does she have an arch-nemesis?
Kerry Chooses Edwards To Bring Some Life To His Frighteningly Grave Visage -- Dem John Kerry defended his choice of John Edwards as his running mate on Thurs night against GOP criticism that he lacks experience, saying the freshman senator from NC was "strong enough and skilled enough to lead" the country if necessary. Plus he has great hair. (AP 07/06/04)
Tom Ridge Keeps Our July 4th Spirits Up With Prediction Of Terrorist Attacks -- Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge said Friday he saw no contradiction in the government's renewed public warning of likely terrorist attacks and its unwillingness to raise the official terror alert level. Earlier at a news conference he announced that a steady stream of intelligence, including Web sites (like this Blog), indicates al-Qaida wants to disrupt the upcoming U.S. elections. (AP 07/07/04)

Actually I have not one but TWO arch nemesises-
#1-Manic Depressive Chainsmoking Boss-this nemesis defines himself by throwing massive amounts of busywork on my desk and calling me into his office either to yell at me or plead for my praise on his newest efforts. Works closely with Tattletale Co-Worker Who Likes To Throw Me Under The Bus. Her special talent is looking at my computer screen and instant messaging all others of my lack of work.
#2-Alchoholic Bar Manager Boss-this nemesis is a vile creature indeed. He refuses to cut me from my night job even though my back is acting up and there is only one customer in the bar. Booze is his kryptonite however, seduce this monster with the sweet nectar, and he will become as easy as a soroirity sista! Likes to yell at me for being "late". What's wrong with that? He works closely with Jack Daniels and Jim Beam (not enemies, actually allies of JackieO)

on my ipod (special turner|phelps edition)-Rock With You by Michael Jackson (when he was still black)
