Friday my husband called and said that he didn't have access either, though for a sadder reason than I. He then said that he thought a buddy was pulling his leg by saying that Pres Obama had won the Nobel Peace Prize.
I was at the lunch table with several relatives. I could've asked them if they'd heard about this news, but honestly, I thought it was too absurd to repeat out loud. I would've felt more serious asking, "Hey, have you guys heard that some people see Elvis at 7-11?" I mean, I just thought it was too stupid to repeat.
I hung up the phone and everyone at the table wondered what my husband had asked me about. So I had to say it.
And then found out it was true.
Let me repeat for emphasis: I thought the mere fact of asking my relatives if Pres Obama had won the Nobel Peace Prize was too embarrassing.
Imagine my embarrassment when I found out he did.
Man, I missed a good day to be on the internet. I hear people had mad jokes.

Personally, I thought this year was Morgan Tsvangirai's year - you know from stopping a tyrannical dictator from committing genocide and mass mutilation against his own people. But, eh, what do I know. As they said on Ace of Spades - the other nominees didn't have their own cover on People magazine, so there naysayers.
To lighten my mood, I took one narcissistic village (aka Hollywood) idiot and pitted him against our Emperor with No Clothes in Chief. Thus the beauty of Photoshop in our everyone-has-an-unsolicited-opinion age of society: "Kayne West Finally Properly Interrupts An Acceptance Speech" http://tinyurl.com/ylz3dvh

LOL.... I love this line: "I thought the mere fact of asking my relatives if Pres Obama had won the Nobel Peace Prize was too embarrassing."
