At the Althouse Alehouse...



... get a life, make a duck face, and tell us your most secret desire.

Making a duck face is my most secret desire. Oh wait, you said "duck face."

David said...

Fat chance I'll tell you that.

Hell, I don't even know what it is myself.

Sam L. said...

You don't have a need to know, and I don't have even an inclination to tell. Nyaaa, Nyaaa, Nyaaaa.

Another Far-Fetched Farrow Theory:

What if Dylan Farrow was molested, but by Mia Farrow's brother, a convicted child molester, not Allen. Then, because the prevailing sentiments in the home were that brother Farrow was beloved and father Allen was hated, her memories distorted to make Allen the perpetrator.

One could do a lesser Rashomon remake with this scandal.

I have an odd desire for a Matt's Beer Ball

My secret desire is consistent adherence to principles among our political leaders and political observors. Also, to have no more duck face.

Stroh's Dark Beer on tap is a step towards the duck face, and 1000 other large and small things that change day to day.
A good telescope and a place to use it, fully exploring "the subway" at mt zion park are some on the bucketed list. Peace Out

Atlanta is hunkered down for a predicted ice storm. Like a hurricane the worst part of an ice storm is no electrical power for 3 to 5 days.Then there are no heaters, well pumps, hot water heaters, computer and cell phones,refrigerators, stoves, microwaves, and gas stations open.

Obama and gang are eliminating our coal generated electric power anyway next year. What will we get instead of electric power? AlGore and free sunscreen?

My most secret desire is to start a blog called Dumb Althouse. It will be intended as parody and by adding the word dumb I can legally use the coveted Althouse name. I like that I will be able to make fun of the law and Bob Dylan and perhaps leave Althouse a little perplexed and hopefully pleased by the full circle Althouseness of the whole experiment.

Remember when Jessica Lange and Lauren Hutton got confused by people? My theory as to why Laurence Fishburne and Samuel L. Jackson get confused by people now, as those others did then, has to do with the dental. Which had a gap, which didn't. I mean, you know. Surely.

As promised, re: Tanaka's dog: Masahiro Tanaka spent almost $200,000 chartering a 787 Dreamliner to fly from Japan to New York for the Yankees' press conference. The flight carried Tanaka, his wife, three other people and his poodle, Haru.

This brought to mind cultural differences: A Japanese pitcher charters a flight for his dog. A Chinese pitcher would claim that the island actually belongs to
China and all the dogs are his. A Korean pitcher would just order carryout when he got here.

If the traditional, real meaning of words don't matter (like marriage), then what does?
