Been a bit out of the loop lately, but hey we made international news today... We are one of the countries arming the criminal regime of Sudan, despite a UN embargo...
And we thought we were plum out of reasons to be proud of this little troublemaker state of ours...
---
The Republicans are still insisting on filling the office at the top with donkeys...
Which might be why so many are defecting...
But they're not worried, they have Diebold on their side...

I don't know about you but I am looking forward to candlelight and star gazing during our coming summer blackouts...
Thanks to terrible planning, ignoring the fact that we have an abundance of renewable energy sources like the sun, and constantly being on our knees before our major non-renewable national oil gods, we can expect our gluttonous consumption and the rising planetary heat to result in a series of power cuts in our hottest months...with all the accompanying health hazards..
"The effect of global warming appears to be with us already... The consequences could be water-rationing and the threat of blackouts, as demand for air-conditioning and refrigeration soars in the summer, disrupting economic activity and potentially costing business millions"Observer
But don't worry, the country that bought you oil spills and fires in gas pipes on oil fields is thinking newkulur... Did someone say one way ticket out?

Hey you! Been awhile, huh? Welcome back! I know, I know, you've only been away for a month, more or less, but it's been ages since I last dropped by so... :)

"As of the minute the decision was taken, it could take 12 to 15 years for the nuclear plant to be completed," the foreign minister, Sheik Mohammed Al Sabah was quoted by Al-Qabas daily as saying.

Please excuse my ignorance, 'cuz I have no clue how that's gonna' work, but will Kuwaitis be in charge of ... whatever, or will they be bringin' in the experts. I mean, I love my fellow country-men dearly, but I for one have zero faith in their competency (and work ethic).

Was too mean? I hope not but honestly all it takes is a tiny mistake and BAM everyone's got cancer or summat. Plus isn't it bad for the environment? Won't it seep into our water supply or something? Again, please excuse my ignorance and honestly I don't mean to sound so selfish. I'm just curious.

If worse comes to worst, everyone could abandon ship--- er country. Hey, 15 years is more than enough time for people to build new lives elsewhere. I keed, I keed!

That said, I totally recommend Ylang Ylang candles. They're very relaxing :) Is it wrong that we're treating this like a camping trip or are we just trying to find the silver lining.

Anyways, it's good to have you back :) Take care, yeah? Later, chica!
