To catch up on the latest happenings:

1. Despite appearances, California has decided that Lindsay Lohan is
not a skeezy crackwhore. Umm…right.

2. I woke up to the news that Paris Hilton was arrested for coke
possession. I don’t know if there’s a thing in the world that can be
done to take the sheer mean girl glee away from me at this moment.
Paris Hilton made women my age look like twits and I don’t appreciate
it.

3. Glen Beck is such a douche that even the republicans I know are
bad-mouthing him. What do we need to do for him to disappear forever?
Perhaps he should go sleep with the fishes? (And no, I really don’t
advocate killing him and dumping the body. I’d just like to get that
level of quiet out of him.)

4. Dudes. They are not building a mosque. Even if they were, why on
earth should it matter to you? It is a religious center in a country
with freedom of religion. It’s not like Al Qaeda is going to be
sitting inside the building, twirling their mustaches and chortling.

Gotta love a dude who loves KC.

I feel like I should tell you there’s swearing, but fuck it–you read
me or know me and are therefore used to it.

(Also? I’m still not used to being older than people in the public eye.)

So, it’s probably too late to point out that if your eyes are delicate and you can’t stand swearing, you shouldn’t have opened this.

But, uh…I think they hit them all except damn. So let me put that out there for you.

How to Disable Facebook Places

Standard
Yesterday Facebook rolled out a new feature called Places that lets you and your friends check in to locations, Foursquare-style. If you’d prefer to keep your location private, or at least stop your friends from posting it, here’s how.

You’re on the internet reading this post, so it’s safe to assume you use FaceBook. Seriously, who doesn’t nowadays? Shutins and paranoid schizophrenics?

(So…..I have my offensive comment of the day made, now.)

My point is, unless you are a Foursquare or Gowalla devotee, you probably aren’t interested in your friends knowing where you are at all times. Follow the link to learn how to change your Facebook Places settings.
