I did "forget" about Paranoid Park for a minute but thanks for reminding us that it's one of the greatest works of cinema from GVS and... it's on netflix streaming. So I have to hang up now and go watch it.
(And another thing, your critique of Restless would be a lot more relevant if you were born in 1997 and wrote for the Portland Mercury. Dude you sound old. Whats wrong with Twee Hispsterdom? You must confusing this film with the next Twilight. Gee-whiz Gramps)
Dude, let me help you out with your first sentence and you don't even have to "guess" what I'm trying to say, I'll just be straight up. Question: what's up with your smug guess work to congratulate SF Giants fans? Congratulations, you guess? I guess what you're trying to say is Fuck Yea SF Giants fans!!!!
And you are welcome, I just guess you needed a little help with that.
Betty, dude, no seriously, we ran out of paths like so many bike lanes that dead end before the intersection where they are needed the most. I'm sorry to say, but now that your assignment has ended that I will miss critiquing your bikes, your grammar, and your lack of a helmet. Regarding the latter, most cyclists in New Mexico know that it is for protection from flying Bud Lite bottles. Well, at least you shave your legs. This installment is by far the most depressing without the one finger salute with your left hand in your front pocket and your middle finger out. What I mean to say is that photo is a little heavy on the phallus theme. And you forgot your sign, "Freedom isn't free: it's $6 billion a month."
Peace in the Middle East and we'll see you on the flip-flop. And, oh, by the way, flip flops and flip flop hubs go good together too.
I'm totally into the dork/chic small-frame-epic-stem scene. My undersized Rocky II lugged frame is slayin' a stem raiser that would shame most hybrids.
Betty, dude seriously, a quick cure for DIDS is a multitool. I can recommend a bike shop in Albuquerque.
And don't worry, you can rock a stylish saddlebag for your new Tool, check out bikeportland for hand crafted bike accessorizing.
And other thing...your cockpit looks a little confused: your stem slopes down and your bars rise up. What's up with that. Up down up down.
We're still waiting for your post about the ride from Burque to Teleride. You'll get to meet hella benters on that mission.
The moral of the story is that when you want some respect and integrity as a cyclist just pull down your pants.
Betty, dude, seriously, get on your fat tire geared bike and load up your 2009 camo ironic fanny pack with camping gear and water and tell us the story about how you rode into the New Mexico wilderness from your house and touched the sky.
You forgot to include the extremely irritating phrase "on your left" in your hatery.
And if the word recumbent gives you an uneasy feeling try this, "girls rarely make passes at Freds who lie flat on their assess..."
I love Tax Day! I serves to remind me of how proud that I am of myself that I didn't turn out like one of those whiny T-baggers! (protest sign: "me no like taxes! boo-hoo!")
Although I help fund baby killing in Afghanistan there's also a really really nice library near my house. So I take the good with the bad.
I hope that you see my following criticisms of your writing as my plea for your help in changing some stereotypes of nursing.
First, I disagree with you that most people think of nurses as "women dressed in white." I think most people realize that nurses serve a very important role in our society, and that we also wear scrubs. If you want to help change the stereotypes of nursing then I suggest that you stop using your image in a tight fitting white dress showing a curvy profile and wearing a nursing cap. This only perpetuates the stereotype of the libidinous nurse (with the pseudo lesbian suggestions) and the old fashioned handmaiden nurse (with the white cap with the old fashion red cross.) I can only surmise that you are trying to help make nursing look hip, sexy, and mod with your artsy portrait. But I'm left asking what your portrait does for nursing and for women.
My next criticism is directed at your description of your subject, and you state, "In person, Amy is the portrait of the wholesome American nurse. Blond hair reaches the middle of her back, and long eyelashes graze her cheeks when she blinks." Portraits of wholesomeness is another stereotype that is unhelpful to nursing. Also, there is a glaring racial indifference that you use to describe blond women as American. The blond American is a tired and outdated stereotype, and wholesomeness is an antiquated moral judgment. While I appreciate that "Amy" is a compassionate clinician, I feel that her important scholastic background should be discussed rather than her physical attributes. In reality, although it is very flattering, what bearing does her hair and eyelashes have on her practice?
I'm sure most readers, including "Hot Lips", will ask me to lighten up, but as migaurd05 alluded, we spend millions of dollars a day so that I can have the "freedom to speak my mind."
If you are not a member of The Center for Nursing Advocacy then I recommend that you go to their site. That goes for you too, Hot Lips.
