The Blood is the Life!

Fresh Squeezings from the veins of the internet:
  • One of my current favourite blogs is Crust of the Grouch ([syndicated profile] crust_of_the_grouch_feed). Grouch is a non-aligned political commenter. The text of her comments tends towards the pithy, so she won't overwhelm your f-list with essays like some. But the best bit is that she's an artist, and therefore each post has a satirical illustration of some kind. The one that jumped out to me today is here.

  • Count Packula, Prince of Markness documents what happens when the twitterverse applies itself to a Daily Fail poll. Basically, hilarity ensues.

  • The European Court of Human rights has SENSE shock! Via Feminist Law Professors ([syndicated profile] feministlawprofessor_feed) comes the news that the European Court of Human Rights has unanimously found that a state violated the human rights of the applicant and her mother in failing to protect them against domestic violence. Hurrah!

  • Of all the fallout from my resignation from Liberal Conspiracy, this is the bit that makes me saddest. Aaron was the person who convinced my to write for LC in the first place, and although he might not have the purity of liberalism some of my fellow Lib Dems would like to see, he's a good man, and his heart's in the right place, even when his typing fingers aren't. Hope the sanity break does the trick, sweetie.

  • Today's Lib Demmery: Mr Quist is one of many commenting on the Michael Brown thing today. Honestly, other parties have SHITLOADS of dodgy donors. We have ONE and nobody will ever let us forget it... And Lib Dem Voice has a post illustrating the importance of literacy. Nob = posh person. Knob = cock. Spelling is important!
And now for today's meme:

If your comment to this post includes the words Peter Cushing lives in Whitstable I will ask you five questions. You must then answer those questions and make a similar offer on your own blog.

[livejournal.com profile] sideshow_meg asked me the following five questions:
  1. If you could buy anything, what would it be?
  2. What did you want to be when you were little?
  3. What is your favourite tv show?
  4. What is your favourite alcoholic drink?
  5. Where would you like to travel if money was no object?
and the answers are under the cut )

Some random linkage to start off your day:
  • The cartoon in this morning's Graun is very amusing. Lots of Fat Cats showing us their bottoms.

  • May have to watch Question Time. I missed it because I was at Liberal Drinks, but according to the Twitterverse Dorries was something to behold. I particularly like these tweets: 1, 2, 3.

  • As several people have reminded me, today is THE EIGHTH OF MAY, THE EIGHTH OF MAY!!! It is compulsory to give people a Motorhead earworm. Here you go. Also, don't forget that Monday is Towel Day (the anniversary of the death of Douglas Adams), and it's really important that you know where your towel is. I shall be wearing one on my belt loop all day, as I did last year.

  • [profile] esmereldus is pimping out her artist friend, and he is GOOD. Please go and look, and if you have a bit of spare brass, let him have some.
And now I go and have my bath. I probably won't be back online much till the early hours; I have an eight hour shift at work (and Fridays are BUSY) and then the Greetland & Stainland Lib Dem Quiz Night Fundraiser to whup everyone's arses at attend immediately after. You lot behave yourselves while I am gone! :P
