Farm traffic

I've been all about the iPhone for about four years now, and recently life partner bought me the latest and greatest 4S. My dad, however, has had that phone for about 6 months now and has been obsessed with it. So when he heard I finally had one of my own and was enamored with it, he sent me this ringing endorsement. I should mention he manages a dairy with a couple thousand cows and apparently they get in the way from time to time.

The Mark of the Lion series

Eh. It was ok. I didn't end up reading the last book in the series. But it was intriguing enough for me to read the first two. It's set in about 40 A.D. right after the fall of Jerusalem. It's got some gladiators, some Roman rich people, an awkward love story and a whole lot of Christiany stuff. Being a Christian it was nice at first - especially since it was about the earliest Christians in history, but then it got a little drawn out. And the second book, which was much less interesting, in its entirety was what life partner calls "holy roller jive talk." I probably wouldn't recommend unless you don't have anything else on your list.

Work it, own it...

I'll admit I have no room to talk. On any given day my hair is probably more 67 percent more frizzy and I've been known to dress excessively frumpy from time to time. But if I was on national television I would probably have spruced it up a little more than Kaela Humphries did on her TV debut on the Kardashians. I think it struck me the way it did because I was certain she could be pretty damn fierce if she wanted to, even when up against those short Armenians.

So when I saw this I was like mmmm-hmmmmm that's what I thought. From "meh" to model. Called it.

D-bags of the week

The Bachelor contestant Courtney

She's just a bad person. But what really pushed her d-baggery over the edge was now she is a bad person trying to masquerade as a suddenly nice girl now that media backlash from her assiness is getting too much. Fake apologies, fake crying...."I...I mean, these are real emotions here." Gross. It's one thing to just be a stupid girl on The Bachelor doing stupid things. But the crap she was capable saying and doing to undeserving women, regardless of the fact she was on national television, is just repugnant. I would dare say she is the worst in Bachelor history.

Kudos to the other girls for at least being smart enough to not buy all her crap.

Rush Limbaugh

I have spent as long as I can remember not acknowledging this waste even exists. (No offense Trevor. I am sure you love him). But his last disgusting mis-step is pretty hard to ignore. Although he gets a C for creativity in calling a woman who uses birth control a "slut" and "prostitute," and those who advocate for insurance coverage of birth control asking to be paid to have sex. I don't think the word "pig" does him justice but then again it's Limbaugh. At least he's taken a short break from racism.

Kudos to all the advertisers that have pulled from his program, as well as the stations that have finally dropped him due to uncontrollable d-baggery. Well done.
