mellicious: Narnia witch in a carriage pulled by polar bears, captioned "OMGWTFPOLARBEAR!" (m15m - polarbear)
I heard something that really floored me on the radio this morning: apparently somebody-or-other (I didn't at all catch who) was criticizing Obama for being the most liberal Senator, and this was based mostly on the fact that he supported ethics reform. I mean, since when is ethics reform a liberal cause? (If the Republicans would like to concede that their ethics are crap, that's fine with me. However, I was not previously aware that they had done so.)

As I have said, I started making jewelry mostly so I could make it for myself, but I took this to a new height this morning - I actually made a pair of earrings to match my outfit. I put on a turquoise-colored shirt, and then I put on the bracelet that Rob gave me for Valentine's, which is turquoise enamel and silver, and then I thought, "I don't have any earrings that match!" I had already made one pair of turquoise-colored earrings, but they had antique-gold findings so they wouldn't do. But I had a couple more of the Czech glass beads that were the right color and in less than 10 minutes I had a silver pair, too. Luckily I was running early, for once.

In case anybody has been wondering why the heck I use this icon all the time - well, for one thing, I went, 'Hey look, I have a Tilda Swinton icon!' Monday morning after the Oscars, and have been trotting it out extra-often this week. (I think I have some more of[personal profile] cleolinda's Narnia in 15 Minutes icons on the computer someplace, but this is the one I actually use.) I have always liked this icon anyway, just for sheer weirdness value - it's a Narnia joke and a Lost joke rolled into one, how can you beat that? I don't know if it amuses anybody else, but it amuses me.

Which reminds me, all I've ever heard anybody say about Tilda Swinton this week is how ugly her dress was, but I was more interested in her acceptance speech, which was (a) rather funny and (b) managed to mention her agent's buttocks and George Clooney's nipples in the space of sixty seconds or so. (Oh, and I've also heard something about her being in a polyamorous relationship. I'm surprised that one hasn't gotten more press, actually. Maybe I'm just not reading the right press. Or the wrong press.)

Weird "breaking news" e-mail for today:
Britain's Prince Harry has been serving on the front line in Afghanistan, CNN confirms.
Um, seriously, this is breaking news? I will never understand how they decide this stuff. I understand that it's fairly important in the grand scheme of things. But if he didn't just get there, then on what planet does that constitute "breaking"?

(I wrote this at lunchtime and I know more about this now, but I still am not much of the opinion that it really was breaking news. I'm cranky that way, apparently.)
