A post from this past Easter, which you'll probably pick up on as I seem to have been compelled to mention it four or five thousand times.
Oh - And a big hello to the new reader we've picked up in South Africa. That's just awesome.
Other People who are, upon consideration, probably not the Anti-Christ

Hello and Happy Easter
This being the day it is
(Easter, for those with a limited short-term attention span and if you
do I am hardly in any position to judge because hey look, isn't that a
squeeky toy??... Where was I now?)
being the day it is (Easter) and having just noted a previous blog post
in which I put forward the relatively non-threatening theory that
people who merge into traffic in a way you disagree with are probably
not the Anti-Christ, I felt compelled to expand that thought and touch
on a few other people who are also probably not the son of satan come to
bring the end times upon us however much it seems like that sometimes.
So, in no particular order- People who are - on reflection - probably not the anti-christ
1: People who hold different political opinions
they SEEM like evil incarnate - I mean, they disagree with you and
everything. But honestly, If you look at it from a rational Vizsla
perspective, it's just possible that rational adults can reach different
conclusions based on equally valid reasoning.
I know, CRAZY, right?
mean, take for example the other day. I was quite interested in
pursuing my own 'sniff things along the fence and bark occasionally'
agenda - (A long held principal of the Conservative party as it
happens.) Whereas my longtime friend and companion, the Sheltie known
as 'Bear', was much more interested in his 'stand in front of me and
block my progress so that I am inevitably forced to go the direction HE
wants me to go' agenda. (Also, by coincidence, a long held principle of
the Conservative party.)
Does this mean that Bear is
the Anti-Christ? No. It simply means that every once in a while it is
necessary to urinate on his head so that he remembers his place. ( a
long held principle of BOTH parties)
That said, no matter how we disagree on back yard policy, at the end of the day we still spoon.
Apply this philosophy to Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell and shiver a little inside...
Really. What's with all the carrots? What do they need such good eyesight for?
still, merely an irritant, what with them always leaving their little
jackets hung up on the carrot patch fence. Still not actively
bringing about Armageddon.
3: Michelle Bachmann
know. I know. It really FEELS like it. But I have to believe that
whatever your theological underpining you couldn't seriously believe
that the final bastion of all evil would so frequently say things that
look so batshit crazy as to completely undermine her effectiveness.
Simply put - Evil is more competent than this.
4: The guy who cancelled Firefly
Actually, a solid argument could be made on this one...
5: Wil Wheaton
you are Sheldon, Will Wheaton is, simply put, kind of Awesome. He's
who Felicia Day would be if she had boy-parts. I challenge anyone to
listen to the story of his first meeting with William Shatner (google
Wil Wheaton Paul and Storm Shatner - easy to find) and not come down on
the side of 'I'm sorry you were so irritating as Westley Crusher, we're
totally cool now.'
And on a related note, when did
Betty White and Neil Patrick Harris become the prom king and queen of
dork-chic-awesome? And will someone please make t-shirts that say that?
