Woo!!

Congrats, Kelly!

*big hugs*

Tonight, while Jamie was over at the gf's, we watched Matchstick Men and School of Rock. Both very different movies but very entertaining.

New Alias and Charmed tomorrow. I am jazzed.

Now I'm going to skip off to bed before I start thinking about all the crap I have due in the upcoming week :D

And to my fellow JL junkies...

I'm attempting to download a whole mess of episodes off Kazaa right now. Wish me luck.

I was able to recover A Better World and Only a Dream from the depths of the computer, however, and will get those uploaded to my site.

Now... who wanted these babies (as of right now, 'these babies' includes the pilot Secret Origins, Fury, Legends, Knight of Shadows, Savage Time, Maid of Honor, Hearts and Minds, Comfort and Joy, Secret Society and Wild Cards, as well as the two afore mentioned episodes) snail-mailed to them on CD?

If it's a bunch of peeps I may have to ask for a small donation of a couple bucks to help me cover s&h, but don't worry, great powers that be, ain't no one here making a profit. Except you, of course. Me... I have no income, no paycheck, I'm just doing this out of love of toon 'ship :D

Well that was quick.

MADRID, Spain -- Spain's prime minister ordered Spanish troops pulled out of Iraq as soon as possible Sunday, fulfilling a campaign pledge and trying to calm his uneasy nation after deadly bombings that killed 191 people in Madrid.

Amazing timing, wasn't it?

Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, who swept to victory in elections three days after the bombings, said he acted after deciding the United Nations was unprepared to take over the occupation of Iraq -- his condition for keeping Spanish troops in the country.

And what kind of dumbass joke of a 'condition' was that? Expecting the UN to take charge in Iraq is like expecting the Girl Scouts to take charge in Iraq. Although maybe that's a little harsh -- at least the Girl Scouts have good cookies.

Militants who claimed responsibility for the March 11 Madrid bombings said they were in retaliation for Spain's role in Iraq.

In the announcement, surprising for its timing, Zapatero said he had ordered his defense minister to "do what is necessary for the Spanish troops stationed in Iraq to return home in the shortest time possible."


Surprising how? Of course he wants to capitulate as quickly as possible.

Zapatero spoke just hours after the new Socialist government was sworn in. His party won March 14 general elections and had pledged to bring Spain's 1,300 troops home unless the United Nations took political and military control.

"With the information we have, and which we have gathered over the past few weeks, it is not foreseeable that the United Nations will adopt a resolution" that satisfies Spain's terms, Zapatero said.


It's not foreseeable that the UN will grow a pair, either.

Public remarks by key officials and contacts that Defense Minister Jose Bono made over the past month show no signs that the political and military situation will change to satisfy Spain's demands by the June 30 deadline, Zapatero said.

He noted that most Spaniards opposed the decision by his predecessor, Jose Maria Aznar, to support the war, and said withdrawing the troops had been a longstanding pledge.


Which says very sad things about 'most Spaniards' that I won't even go into.

"More than anything, this decision reflects my desire to keep the promise I made to the Spanish people more than a year ago," he said.

Well I have to say one thing for him... he already has a better track record of keeping promises than Waffle Boy.

"Driven by the deepest democratic convictions, the government does not want to, cannot and will not act against or behind the backs of the will of the Spanish people," he said.

He said the Spanish government would support efforts by the United Nations or European Union to prepare Iraq for elections and the handover of sovereignty, expected June 30.


Just as long as that support doesn't lead to pissing off the Islamic militants, right? Because let's be honest, Mr. Bean, this is about not acting against the will of the terrorists just as much as the Spanish people.

See Kerry. See Kerry's inability to answer a 'yes or no' question.

MR. RUSSERT: You do not believe the war on terror is primarily a military operation, not a law enfor...
SEN. KERRY: No...
MR. RUSSERT: You don't.
SEN. KERRY: ...not primarily.
MR. RUSSERT: You don't.
SEN. KERRY: Not primarily.
MR. RUSSERT: You do not.
SEN. KERRY: Not primarily.

*dies laughing* I love Tim Russert.
