[Insert Hail to the Chief here]

Yeah. Obama? He's going to be our next president. I for one couldn't be happier.

I don't think that's how you get Hillary's disgruntled supporters. (I like how an "aide" claims that McCain knew about this before Palin was picked. And the IMPORTANT PART is that she's keeping the baby, because they are Strong On Family Values. ...teen pregnancy and sex before marriage is now under the Family Values umbrella? Huh!) And this rumor, if true, would be absolutely devastating to her campaign. What a soap opera!)

ION, I have just made my own messenger bag and it's kick ass. Pics to come once I have my camera charged now under the cut!

My problem with available laptop bags are that they either aren't big enough (I have a 17" laptop) or they aren't cool or hip looking, or they are KA-RAY-ZEE expensive. I found one that was totally cool, but it was over 200 bones. Um, no.

I was at Urban Outfitters with my sister the other day and saw this cool looking rug. (I've been looking for material that was either pop-art or graffiti inspired. That's hard to come by!) So anyway. This rug. PERFECT.



(These next 2 pictures are over-exposed, so the color isn't as bright and I'm too lazy to fix it. *G*)


The back view with the flap opened


The interior, lined with foam padding and an extra pocket in front of the laptop sleeve for papers, etc. I made an inner pocket for my charger.

Now, I still have to hand tack down the lining, so that's why it's puffy and wonky looking. I was just excited at how it turned out. :D I want to add a thin, stiff strip of leather inside so I can hook pens to it and keep them out of the way.

I also need to add the velcro closure to the front and a velcro tab over the laptop compartment, but that's all handwork for later tonight.

Yay Mormon-arts! Hahaha. If anyone wants the pattern, I made a diagram up in photoshop so I could remember the dimensions. I couldn't find ANYTHING online, so that's my contribution to the world at large.

HERE YOU GO:



(Happy birthday to romanyg and mere_ubu!)

Considering the daughter is 5 months along and the baby is only four moths old, that rumor couldn't possibly be true.

Maybe her daughter can blame it all on Jamie Lynn.

I am just disgusted that right wing lunatics refuse to allow kids to have access to birth control. While I would rather that HS kids not have sex, there is wishful thinking and reality.

...I thought the baby was born in 2007? Hmm.

Nonetheless, the CURRENT pregnancy is enough to flush them down the toilet, imo. And we're in complete agreement on birth control. Wish in one hand and shit in the other, and see which one fills up faster, right?

Oh, I just re-read some of the articles about the rumor, etc. My guess is them saying the daughter is pregnant NOW is to make people think just what you said: that rumor couldn't possibly be true.

And she could be pregnant again, but not as far along as they claim.

I'm thinking this Trig isn't Sarah's baby thing is sounding more likely. (Those pictures are pretty incriminating. And I remember her being here for that convention this spring and no mention was made of her being pregnant. It's just all shades of fishy to me.)

I disagree. I don't have any use for her politically but I can well believe she'd keep news of her pregnancy quiet so that she wouldn't have to hear that her decisions were made because she was too emotional.

Oooh, that's a good point, too.

All in all, I just don't get the choice of this particular candidate for their VEEP choice. There are better female choices, and I honestly thought Kay Bailey Hutchins was a shoo in. Not that she'd get my vote either, just...

It's all so bizarre. And Obama - class act that he is - has stated that he will fire anyone in his campaign that speculates on these rumors.

If she were the first pregnant governor perhaps, but nobody had any such issues when Jane Swift was pregnant.

Every group of people is different. She also could have felt it was her private business.

Of course, on a Fark.com discussion thread someone is saying that in a few months the daughter will have a "miscarriage", (never having been pregnant at all), squashing the rumors that the previous child was hers.

I think it is time for me to buy stock in tin foil companies.

Yeesh. What a horrible situation to be that kid with all of this crap swirling around you.

Jeez. There's cynical and then there's disgusting.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
