Meal Annoyances

I'm not sure if I should eat with Chris or not, lately. It started with small spills, but the last two times have been whoppers. First, it was the full glass of red wine that he knocked over, that went all over me and the brand new tablecloth. Today, he loads up his noodle soup with sauce and soy (soy sauce is forever, as a kimono dealer I know says), picks up a meatball, and PLOP! I now have splotches all over my 1950's changeable silk skirt, my white silk blouse, and my brand-new vintage haori jacket. I am NOT amused. Especially since the vintage stuff is very nice and NOT replaceable. Or easily cleanable.

Bush puts his foot in it

Well, I haven't seen them, but apparently the Shrub's new presidential campaign ads are generating a negative effect. He's been using the World Trade center as a backdrop for why he's the right leader in turbulent times. The families of people who died there are up in arms. One has even said that since the ads have come out "I'd vote for Saddam Hussein before I vote for Bush." Heh, the law of unintended consequences strikes. Can't say I'm not amused.

As I say, I haven't seen them, but for some reason I read descriptions and get a mental image of certain people campaigning on using images of the Reichstadt (sp?) Fire.
