I’ll be away from the grindstone for a few days, maybe more, but that’s no reason for you to not waste time browsing Web sites for cheap thrills. As a courtesy, here are some places to go and things to see until I return with more ill-informed, half-baked, intellectually shallow, split infinitive-laden commentary. I do it all for you. I just give give give and never take.
Go here for some of the flat-out funniest stuff you’ll ever read about domestic life. You might have to visit a few times, though, because there’s more there than can be consumed in one sitting. Naturally, I went straight to the “Sex in the Suburbs” section, but that’s because I’m a pervert.
When you’re done with that, go here for the kind of intellectual nourishment for which you normally have to pay tuition. But I mean that in a good way. If you’ve ever asked yourself, “Say, I wonder if some pointy-headed Harvard professor could explain to me how the phrase ‘white-trash’ became a badge of honor?” then this is the place for you.
This is interesting, not necessarily because of what’s being said, but because of who’s saying it. The former Debra Winger-dating liberal senator speaks an inconvenient truth about Iraq: We have to deal with the situation as it is today, not as it was four years ago.
I’d hate for you to end on that somber note, however, so go here for one of those aforementioned cheap thrills. I told you I was a pervert.
I’ll be back. Keep checking in.
