06:57 pm: Registrations

Last night I watched the first six hours of Twilight Zone while crocheting and then read the paper. I got to bed to read at 2:30am and stopped at 5am. I set the alarm for 1pm, but turned it off and slept an extra hour.

I put in the Peapod order -- I do this every two months to get things that are too heavy or bulky for me to carry -- and then tried to buy things from other websites and all three of them had problems with my registration. I'd make an account and then they'd tell me I had an invalid password/username. I'll try again tomorrow, but I don't think there's anything today that would cause that.

The Navy has found a very tacky video -- bad names for gays, simulated masturbation, many ugly words -- that was made by an aircraft carrier commander and shown to the men onboard.

Some of the tea party activists are now wondering if the rebellion actually worked. This was a very interesting read.

If there are people in that "tea party" crowd actively wary of being co-opted by the likes of the Koch brothers - or anyone else - that's going to be a good thing, and not just for the wary ones or the USA either. Looking forward to seeing how the wary ones hold up in the years ahead.

Yeah, an activist who brought a lot of people into the local tea party was asked to go to Cancun during the UN Climate Change meeting. All expenses paid. She was planning what she would say when she talked to UN people and how she'd be able to change their minds. When she got there, she was shocked that the guy running her side just had her and other activists standing on the sides of roads while videos were taken of him. She decided not to continue with the activism and took the offered job with a local conservative. She still doesn't believe in climate change, though.
