And yes, it's the Day Before Friday. We're almost there. Grab some coffee, pull up a chair and follow along with me with this morning's Sift...
A- Sarah Palin sends [some of us] silent messages in her pictures, according to Sundries.
In that spirit, I have observed that Sarah Palin uses her hair down during speeches, which makes her still youthful features appear a little more severe. Almost counterintuitively though, the style flatters her more than the iconic "bun", which has increasingly been shunted aside since her roll-out in Dayton, Ohio. The "hair down" also offers an alternative to the constant short haircuts seen on other female politicians.B- Jaded in Paradise is looking for help with her insomnia.
This is also why she uses her square librarian glasses (which at one point had been rumoured by HuffPo to be fake. No, she's worn glasses since her earliest childhood. In fact, so do Piper and Trig today, clearly inheriting those genes from their mother). Anything to detract from the fact that she is above-average looking woman in a field where homely women are legion.
Her posture is relaxed, her hands linked in that almost prayerful gesture she has during rallies, and her prominent jaw is jutting with determination at some far off goal in the distance.
Governor Palin is sending us all a message.
Received loud and clear, Sarah. Good luck.
Guys, do you bloggers, experience the same lack of sleep syndrome? If so, how often? How do you deal with the situation? Can we ever quiet our minds or is this some sort of writer’s curse?C- I Shot The Chef whips up some fascinating tuile cookies.
I made several different shapes; long triangles that I shaped over a (washed) can, spirals that I shaped around a thin wooden spoon handle, spoons that I shaped on (obviously) spoons, and butterflies that I bent in half and set in a baking dish. I served them with home made raspberry and mango sorbets.D- 305 went to the circus this past weekend and took her camera.
All I have to say is whoever choreographed the show and designed the costumes is awesome. It was pretty much 80s punk influenced, with a splash of glitter and glam. Loved it!E- Shorter babalu...
Obama is going to have to own eight years of Republican mismanagement and fiscal irresponsibility if there is any inflation during his term.
