FLOTUS Fitness Tips

Per Stinquer Dodgerblue’s request, enjoy this video of Michelle Obama working out. I had to explain to him that she is not wearing a leotard per se, but there are a few close-ups of her pecs and deltoids. Prepare for Faux News outrage in 3…2…1. She has some mad jump rope skills. I would have either strangled myself on the rope or tripped on my face doing some of her moves.

Pass the mind bleach.

Stinque-en Tax Write Offs

Since Nojo won’t do the Stinque Awards anymore, I  bring you the chance to tell all your other Stinquers about your favorite charities for anybody who is flush with Xmas/Festivus/Hannukah cash and/or needs to get a few more tax deductions in under the wire.

I’m a big fan of the Planned Parenthood clinics in Texas, especially Hidalgo County/Rio Grande Valley.

It was the best of times...

The Gorgon’s Lament

Well my-my-my. So this is what it’s like up here. Fancy. Goodness, they have snacks. It’s a pity about the terrible burlwood coffee table, though. One might guess it’s supposed to complement the editor’s birkensock ensemble, though some might characterize the effect as more faint praise.

But I digress. What, you may ask, has prompted this post? While I cannot speak to Nojo’s lamentable lapse in judgment in giving me the keys to the castle, however briefly, I’d like to point your attention to a confluence of recent events which has given me pause. To whit:

Shine on, friend. I will miss so much her humor and inability to master the use of computers and log-ins.  And the on-going, never-ending Scrabble and Words with Friends games she played with me and DodgerBlue where she always kicked our asses.

She was one of a kind.
