Twerpette (named for my dachshund Molley, the original twerpette or "goofy girl") seeks to tweak the long nose of life with humor, affection, and gravitas. Topics include dating and relationships, faith and spirituality, language and writing, journalism, technology, arts, academe, whimsy and humanity. Cheeky and tweaky, Twerpette is rated PG13 for mature language and themes. This weblog began May 10, 2005. Copyright 2005-2016 Steve Deyo.

[The mature man or woman] can be passionate yet still think (do the right thing).
Pride goes before a fall -- usually accompanied by apopletic spittle. The Republicans have become so drunk with power in recent years, with no effective checks to balance them, that their spittle-spraying extremist views are producing a long-awaited backlash from the public and the backpedaling of their own more sensible colleagues. Their rabid attack ads on Texas Democratic gubernatorial candidate Chris Bell claim that he wants a completely naked border with Mexico; no Republican with a pulse or a brain would believe that, much less anyone else with considerably more compassion. What is it about Republicans needing to be so much about command and control, while Democrats are all about freedom and empowerment?
This woman just wants validation. Someone said the first 6-12 months of online dating is all about "Wow, if I can get all this attention, I must be worthwhile." I say she should consider the source: It's not how much attention you get, it's from whom. (You don't want attention from desperate, needy, sex-crazed, or control-freak nut jobs.) There are women who just want to suck up as much free attention as they can get -- because they're shallow, insecure, or are a user/taker. These are the women who accept -- and even solicit -- all the free drinks, meals, and gifts they can get from men -- but give nothing in return. Actually they would be whores if they gave favors in return, but I'm talking about an emotional return. They are like the soulless "confirmed bachelors" that women are always complaining about.

"But now the federal government is extending the frontiers of terror with the Military Commissions Act of 2006, legalizing torture and suspending habeas corpus and constructing a loose web of law by which you and I could be hung by our ankles in a meat locker for as long as somebody deems necessary. "Any person is punishable ..." the law states, "who knowingly and intentionally aids an enemy of the United States" and when it comes to deciding what "knowingly and intentionally" might mean or who is the enemy, that's for a military commission to decide in secret, with or without you present. No 5th Amendment, hearsay evidence admissible, no judicial review.

(via DB) In a strange but lackluster attempt to create their take on Bruce-Willis-as-a-talking-dog, Purina has assembled a series of five confessional video clips. I'll say no more -- just see the clip of Wally ("Nobody wants a wet dog") the Dachshund.

After walking Twerpette this morning, I decided it felt like 68 degrees, then looked up weather.com (to investigate the predictions for rain today and confirm that I need to close my windows): It is currently 69 degrees.

(Los Angeles Times) "There are really two John Hodgmans. One is well known to viewers of Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" as the "resident expert" who offers preposterously inaccurate assessments of such things as Alan Greenspan's retirement and Iran's atomic aspirations. He's even more widely familiar to those who have seen Apple Computer's recent spate of ads, in which he appears as the comically fusty PC, stealing the show from actor Justin Long's slacker-cool Mac."
(Los Angeles Times) "WASHINGTON - A new Republican Party TV ad featuring a scantily clad white woman winking and inviting a black candidate to "call me" is drawing charges of race-baiting, with critics saying it contradicts a landmark GOP statement last year that the party was wrong in past decades to use racial appeals to win support from white voters.

It's a good plan in general for each person in a couple to be primarily responsible for their own things. A couple can pool certain resources but to pool everything [or to trust the whole shebang to one person's hands] means any one person's mistake can punish both persons.
Not only does eharmony arguably represent the best value in online dating sites (because of its scientific matching system) but it seems to be the only site that stands by ethical standards of membership. (True.com claims to verify the single status of members but is known to fail to do so, and now uses semipornographic model photos in all of its online ads.)
"We're all pretty liberal — at least if you're using the word as historically defined. It's hard to imagine even Rush Limbaugh or Ann Coulter coming out in favor of racial segregation, child labor or male-only workplaces. To the degree the word no longer evokes the fight against those things and connotes moral squishiness and effete elitism instead, Republicans have been successful in deconstructing it, making it unusable.

Amazon.com: "Two in a Bed includes interviews with more than forty bed-sharing couples as they candidly discuss winding down and waking up, cold feet and tucked sheets, who sleeps near the door and who gets pushed to the edge, snoring, spooning, sleep talking, sleep walking, and the myriad other behaviors we negotiate in falling asleep, staying asleep, and waking up each morning beside a partner. In addition to exploring the routines and realities of sharing a bed with another person, these interviews reveal important information about sleep, relationships, and American society."

When I search the 77024 zip code for all locations that carry Lego products (including Lego, Wal-Mart, and Discovery stores), your Web site lists four sites--none of which are the half-dozen Target, Wal-Mart, and Discovery stores within the five-mile radius selected.
Walking Twerpette this chilly (for Houston) morning, I found myself practicing my hm-this-must-be... aptitude. I decided it must be 58 degrees, because it didn't feel as cool (as I remember in Minnesota) as it had to get at night for it to be too late in the season to apply an outdoor coat of paint (55 degrees, usually mid-September).
