Via soon-to-be-Munuvian Jody, it has been discovered that a gentleman by the name of Jeff is having a, uh, blog party... in absentia, I guess. Y'see, Jeff is currently slaving away at boot camp. But it seems he wanted something nice waiting for him when he gets back, so he wrote a post asking for 1000 comments and 75 trackbacks, among other things. He's up to about 850, as of now. Go. Comment now. Fun will be had by all, he brought a Slip-N-Slide and a crapload of pudding to keep us entertained while he's gone. Heh.

UPDATE: Well, that's weird. He got back the day I noticed him.

Gratuitous linky-love for Monday the 20th

The world isn't fair. I will pout now.

So this morning, I discovered that basil trackbacked me. Twice.


And I still can't get to his blog.


I wonder if he's been blacklisted by this Army-issue server. It keeps giving me a firewall error. Why that would happen, I have no idea. Is anybody else having trouble getting there?

Put the blog down, and turn on the TV

Hey! Why are you reading this? La Shawn is about to be on TV again, and I'm at work and might not get to see! So- put down the blog, and go turn on the TV, 'cuz I might need a report later on.

And in other news, it's a good thing only one-seventh of the world's days are Mondays.

Tell it like it is, La Shawn!

Well, I was blessed with seeing La Shawn Barber's introduction to international TV this afternoon, even though MSNBC forced me to watch a bunch of somethingorother about terrorism before they got to La Shawn. They shoulda had their priorities straight. Just a coupla things I'd like to comment on:

First of all- awww, Wonkette couldn't make it? That's too bad. Thank God.

Now to the Good Stuff:

First Keen La Shawn Quote: "I'm not following much of Hillary." BWAHAHA! She did mention a bit about Condi vs. Hillary ('08 is gonna rock, when the first black ever/first woman ever President is elected, and she's Republican) and Hillarywatch (never been there, checkin' it out now...) but she pretty much blew the Hillary question off. Heh. Brad like.

Second Keen La Shawn Quote: "I'm enjoying railing against him [Mad HowDean]." I say again: BWAHAHA! That cracked me up. Bust 'im out, La Shawn!

They asked her the token question about how she felt about being a female blogger (well, that was what the segment was about) and she responded by setting them straight. Don't have a direct quote this time, but she made it clear that being a female blogger isn't really what puts her in the minority. It's being an African-American (she hates that word too! I thought I was the only one! sweet!) black, conservative, Christian woman that sets her apart, and that she blogs about not only politics, but her faith as well. Boy, I 'bout stood up and cheered.

Anyway, as far as female bloggers go, I really don't see much of a gender gap in the blogosphere. (Yeah! Blogosphere, Ron! What's wrong with that word?!) Lemme put it like this. Obviously La Shawn is cool. My favorite blogger to get information from is Michelle Malkin. But I do have a complaint- she writes too much, I can't keep up. The best storyteller I know in the 'sphere is SarahK. Favorite milblogger? Risawn, in Kosovo. And I spend most of my bloggy time, not here, but over at Original Musings. Shoot, almost half my blogroll is female. So I think that's a silly question. But that's just my 2¢.

It's all his fault

Well, it's Saturday, and I had a real chance to do some serious blogging. But I couldn't. I was busy reading basil's archives. That guy's friggin' funny.

Yeah, that's about right

Yup, this is the kind of "soldier" you have to be for Democrats to appreciate you.

New reading material

Hey, y'all, got a couple new faces on the blogroll. One of them is Twenty First Century Republican, written by Nick D., who just graduated from Marine Corps boot camp. Hooah... er, I mean, ooh-rah, or whatever you jarheads say.

Hat tip: West Coast Chaos

The other one is basil, whose blog is keen, and who blogrolled me weeks ago, and I am only just now returning the favor. Silly me.

Go. Read now.

This is gonna be good

Yesterday I mentioned that I never get around to posting much of anything 'cuz I'm always reading other blogs. Well, today I've got an excuse. Every evening Kate's pet troll comes over to The Original Musings and replies to the replies that we reply to her previous replies. With me so far? Good.

Well, since last night there has been some insanely funny and devious comments on several threads. And when she shows up tonight, it's gonna be hi-LA-ri-ous. Check 'em out:

Here. Here. Here. Here. Here. Here. Here. Here. Here. Here.

The 2nd, 4th, 7th, and last ones are the best. It's on.

Pass the popcorn, please. It's time to watch the trollhead explode again.

Holy crap. If you like silliness, you must read the comments on this post. Tao Libra already got Michelle's head to asplode, now we're trying to get her brain to sizzle and smoke.

A deploying soldier's take on Iraq

No, the soldier is not me, although I agree with her 100%. No, the soldier is not going to Iraq (yet?), but it got your attention, and she is deploying. I've linked to Risawn once or twice before, but today she wrote an excellent post. Here's a tasty morsel:

Nobody hates war more then those who have to fight it. But the true warrior understands the need that sometimes you have to fight for something greater then yourself.
Freakin' A.
And this is an all volunteer army. I knew that going to war was a great possibility if I signed up. If I have any regrets about going to Iraq or Kosovo, I have nobody to blame but myself.
Yeah! Listen up, Pablo Paredes!

Risawn rocks.

Kosovo... happy memories...
