  1. Dear Santa

    December 12, 2011 by admin

    At first all I wanted this Christmas was for Newt Grinchwich (typo and it stays) to somehow lose his tongue in a freak accident which would render him speechless and unable to spew any more lies for the rest of his (my) life.  Is that wrong??

    But then it hit me that while these nasty debates, snarky commentaries and back-and-forth bickering is driving me insane it sure is nice to see people passionate about their life, future and politics.  Especially when you live in a place that doesn’t have a choice and hasn’t for a very very very long time, if they even ever did.  Let me tell you, it takes all the life and individualism and passion out of a place.  Oh it’s here, but it’s hard to find…and for good reasons.

    Santa, for Christmas I want the people to holler, debate, donate, hug your neighbor, love a God (or a dog whichever you prefer), care about the air you breathe and the food you eat, design something…new, stop buying crappy perfume that a cheap celebrity is hawking (I had to throw that in, sorry), and vote. Because you can.

     

     

     


  2. Chateau LaFeet

    December 6, 2011 by admin

    No, Pepe LaPew is not writing this blog entry.

    Imagine my surprise when I read that there are FAKE bottles of Chateau Lafite making their way through Chinese Mainland…Mon Dieu, c’est impossible, a fake in China!   Wine expert, Frankie Zhao, who has worked in the industry for 10 years is claiming that he thinks maybe 70% of the so-called Chateau Lafite Rothschild sold in China is fake.  According to the the real Lafite, China’s quota of Lafite wine from France is no more than 50,000 bottles but one 5-star hotel in Guangdong is claiming they have sold 40,000 alone while Zhejiang Province is said to be consuming 300,000 bottles a year.   Even I can do that math baby.  A small, dark and sad secret part of me is loving it that some newly penned coal-mining millionaire boss with his tar and tea-stained teeth and taste buds that are permanently numbed from years of too much bai jiu can’t tell the difference between a $7,000 of wine and some gnarly fruit jam water from Shandong Province.

    Who is signing off on these expense reports?!!!

    And in completely different and yet still fake news….is it me or has Vladimir Putin had a little mini face-lift???  Some fat replacement maybe?  His face is definitely fuller and tighter, something I’ve been wanting for myself for some time.  Don’t be surprised if I take a badly needed vacation to…Siberia.

     

    Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
