Isn't that weird? I mean, the State Department stages gets all show-offy about Condi whenever she stages one of her meaningless, non-binding "memorandum of understanding"s. Meanwhile, her European counterparts are totally doing big things with, like, full-on pacts 'n' treaties and stuff, smiling all the while. So cute!
And I feel terrible for what I have to show next, but I guess I'm just feeling like I have to provide some balance to my usually fawning Ursula coverage. But seriously, Ursula had a totally frowsy day today:
Oh no, Ursula, I don't think I've ever seen you in a more unflattering outfit. Everyone is entitled to an off day, though. Get well soon, Ursula!
And finally! On a totally unrelated note! OK, I have to say first that the following comes from the shallowest part of my sparkley, braidable tail, and I seriously know absolutely nothing about this person's policies* or whatever, OK? OK! So I was wondering if Jordan's adorable Bear King Abdullah was still, you know, adorable. And he is! He is still totally, totally adorable. OMG, so cute:
