everyone knows i love the ladies. especially when they’re lovin other ladies….and it’s caught on film;) but being the educated guy i am, i was listening to bbc4 radio today and there was an item about a web based company in the uk that sold sperm and IVF kits to women, mostly catering to lesbian couples that want to have kids. the company goes by the troubling name of man not included.

i have several problems with this. haven’t these women, in choosing the lifestyle they have chosen, forfeited their chance to have children? what is the thinking behind their desire to raise kids in such an unnatural environment and with such an obviously unnatural method (insert plastic syringe and squeeze)? what do they tell the kids about their father?….”chad, your father was a chicken baster”. i’m open to debate here, but a lesbian, by definition, specifically gives up her right to conceive children. and even if a fatherless, lesbian household parenting children like a normal family isn’t a problem with you, aren’t there thousands of orphans out there that can be given a home with them? while it’s not quite right, it’s probably better than a life brought up in an institution and with no parents at all. it seems to me a better option for this already overpopulated world. better, anyway, than adding more babies just to please lesbians that are jonesin for their very own. lastly, this type of business isn’t even governed or regulated by any health organization in the uk, like real IVF clinics are. they are simply a sperm holding company that resells it to buyers and they fall outside the current regulatory laws. that’s a law that needs to be changed.

oh, and here’s another ugly twist from their web page’s “latest news” section….(they) now accept gay men.

next thing you know, they’ll open up a public school for gays only.

man, i knew tokyo was densely populated but this Diet pic is ridiculous! heheh, just kidding – you gotta love their democratic process … there are a few senators and house reps i’d like to suplex if they tried to mosh my time on the debate floor

i’m gonna go out on a limb here and state that kobe is innocent. what he’s not innocent of is his admitted adultery, but that’s something he, his wife, and God have to get squared away. i just think this chick who’s accusing him sounds highly questionable. first, there was the boasting to friends about how she got together with him, her desire to be an “american idol”, and now we get news of her whacky mental history. i wouldn’t doubt it if it was all dropped soon…

….but OJ is STILL guilty!

this is like something out of the x files. i’ve had some nasty bouts with food poisoning in the past and have gotten pretty sick but this takes it to a whole new level….

fully-grown flies…have been emerging out of (his) genitals and flying off for more than two weeks now.

whiskey -tango-foxtrot?! (that’s mil talk for What Tha F**k, for you uninitiated) now i gotsta PAY to see new release movies on base … i could be wrong but i thought that hollywood donated the reels, hence the ‘navy use only’ banner that always surfaces. no more casually walking out on blackhawk down, we were soldiers, or matrix reloaded i guess. at least the local bijou won’t charge due to its later-release schedule on the 8-mike-mike home movie projector; thenagain, they do seem to screen alot of Ernest movies

penguinpandazoos are great and i went to two of the best in the US, if not the world, over the last few weeks: the san diego and st louis zoos. in st louis, the new penguin and puffin cove is great, especially as an escape to those unbearably humid days the gateway city has. in san diego, they’ve got the famous, though endangered, giant pandas. the hope is that one of the three may be pregnant. click the thumbnails for a larger version of each and excuse the relaxed pose of gao gao.

abethat’s abraham lincoln with broken chains in his fists and looking tough. this monument is in the center of a major tijuana, mexico traffic circle. the mexican people identify and admire honest abe, which was a surprising fact that i learned on our one day visit. the other thing i learned is that i don’t really yearn to return to tijuana anytime soon. maybe if i ever need cheap pharmaceuticals, dental care, or a wrestling mask. the town is pretty dirty, smells ripe, and is somewhat squalid, though we managed to find a nice mall and an excellent cantina for happy hour (2 for 1) margaritas and appetizers. and i did purchase a fine guajabera shirt from a very nice storekeeper. it was a relief to get back to san diego at the end of the day, but bittersweet in that i had to leave to return to dreary ole england the very next day.

meeeathappy birthday, america! and to celebrate the occasion, i display a giant 1+ pound slab of US grade A prime rib. what can be more american than a giant piece of bloody meat? this is one thing that’s hard to find in the uk. and even if you could, would you eat it?…(insert mad cow joke here) this is from kreis’ restaurant in st louis. ask for harry if you go. best waiter in stl. they have a 48 ounce version of this as well, though i can’t imagine anyone outside of orlando pace finishing off one of those. i stopped over for a couple of days in my hometown on the way to san diego. my pop treated us to a couple of great dinners. now, i’ve just enjoyed the fireworks display in la jolla, california and will hit some of the a
