Well, I always KNEW I was royalty, but catlike, too? Husband took hope from the final word, I must say, until I told him it was probably something out of Harry Potter. This was a hoot! I did a NYE Island post of a mediterranean locale you may know. Wishing a Great Two Thousand Eight to you and all you hold dear!

Knock-knee-edly yours,

Grand Duchess DK the Feline of Dramble Buzzcock

and then there is the list of the 50 most loathesome people of 2007. You guessed it, Bush is number one and Cheney is number 2.

1. George W. Bush

Charges: Is it a civil rights milestone to have a retarded president? Maybe it would be, if he were ever legitimately elected. You can practically hear the whole nation holding its breath, hoping this guy will just fucking leave come January '09 and not declare martial law. Only supporters left are the ones who would worship a fucking turnip if it promised to kill foreigners. Is so clearly not in charge of his own White House that his feeble attempts to define himself as "decider" or "commander guy" are the equivalent of a five-year-old kid sitting on his dad's Harley and saying "vroom vroom!" Has lost so many disgusted staffers that all he's left with are the kids from Jesus Camp. The first president who is so visibly stupid he can say "I didn't know what was in the National Intelligence Estimate until last week" and sound plausible. Inarguably a major criminal and a much greater threat to the future of America than any Muslim terrorist.

Exhibit A: "And there is distrust in Washington. I am surprised, frankly, at the amount of distrust that exists in this town. And I'm sorry it's the case, and I'll work hard to try to elevate it."

Sentence: Dismembered, limbs donated to injured veterans.

I know I am awfully late to do this in this thread, but Good Wishes for the New Year to both of you!

I'll see if this works here:

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:

Her Most Serene Highness Lady Rosemary the Sardonic of Dicken St Charles

Of course it didn't work. I knew that! *duh*
