Out of the Blue

Bye week is always a little odd for an NFL fan, it certainly throws me off a little. The one thing one can hope is that it falls at a time that seems advantageous to your team, and with the Giants in the midst of stumbling which follows their historically poor performance in recent Novembers, that certainly seems to apply in this case, so I'll be as happy about it as possible.

Bye Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.

Wow! Some awesome shots there. Still wish the third one had turned out better, but after the second, it was hard not to go in with huge expectations...
Third one was better than the first one, Begins though!!

I thought Rises was great as well. I might even put it higher than TDK.

I don't know if you know this but I am not in any way involved with the fiscal negotiations. At any rate, if you are forced into unleashing your orc hordes that could get ugly. Then again a good mass slaughter by orc could be just the kind of purge D.C. needs. A fresh start for everyone!

Darn, and there I was thinking you held the key to the country's short and medium term well being.

I don't think a full horde will be required, especially since it's close to holiday season. Just a Troll Executioner or two stood next to the Speaker's chair. Anyone attempting a filibuster, the head comes straight off.

Bipartisanship the easy way.

...seem human? Is that a full-time job? As someone on unemployment, I would LOVE to have a job where all I must do is "seem human"!

Good luck with the job search! Hope you find something soon.

Honestly, from several thousand years' experience as an undead disembodied tyrant, seeming human is totally overrated.

It's kinda cool that Obama posed for that - makes him seem... I don't know... human?

He has a good sense of cool - both in his actions and his taste. Nice to have a prez with some style. GWB's fashion choices made me wince pretty frequently, and I'm not exactly the best-dressed demagogue out there.

Funny picture of POTUS and McKayla. Although, the prez took first place, so he has no need of that expression.

Is this picture some inside joke or something? Who is the girl?

She won silver at the Olympics after falling. She knew she was good enough for gold, and made that expression upon winning silver as if to say, "Meh, silver. I should have had gold." Here's the original pic.

Apparently you watched less of the olympics than I did (and I didn't watch any).
