Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)
Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.
This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Chet the E-Mail Boy was so excited to receive this morning's mail--it contained a missive from a foreign country--
Anyway, here you go: Why, thank you! Well, it IS local TV news... As I said, the hard-hitting world of local TV news just begs for stories like this to receive full and complete attention. You mean, like this? As H.D. Miller notes,
Anyway, back to Pittly mandresses. The whole idea reminds me of a fellow who I see occasionally walking around downtown Birmingham. He looks a lot like Howard Stern, but he wears blousy women's dresses. And heels. And a purse. And a bra hugely overstuffed stuffed with paper or something. And again, he looks like Howard Stern, especially around the hair. Except it's not his own long, black, tangled mass of curls, but rather, a wig. He proudly flounces around, and I'm sure on some level he probably feels pretty, but here's the deal. He ain't. Men have enough trouble dressing in men clothes not to have to deal with trying to find something else to look like a slob in.
Oh, sure, it's simpler to go to the john, and cooler in hot weather, and the new styles for summer are really cute, but obviously, God had a reason for inventing pants. Let's just leave well enough along and be thankful for the status quo.
