    1 1/2 oz. Captain Morgan spiced rum
    1/2 oz peach schnapps
    orange juice and cranberry juice to fill a tall glass
    lots of ice

    It tastes sweet and will knock you on your keister. My cousin and I used to make a pitcher right before sitting down to watch Torchwood. Yeah. Geeky fangirl. Sue me.

    Sweet Jesus, it took TWO people to write that.

    Mr. Obama could have checked white, checked both black and white, or checked the last category on the form, “some other race,” which he would then have been asked to identify in writing.

    when I did some genealogy work on my family, I found one member who expressly had the 1870 census taker write in East Virginia to distinguish from the newly formed state of West Virginia (which was part of Virginia until 1863 or so). They had always, previously, used just Virginia before. This side of the family fought for the North in the Civil War (so I don’t think it was a copperhead thing) and I often wondered what kind of ante-bellum wingnuttery prompted them to do this. I’m pretty sure they were actually born in the part of VA that got split off. Obviously they weren’t too happy about it. Goes to show you that the census has pretty much always pissed people off in one way or another.

    found this at another blog and it made me smile:

    FROM ZIZI2 about the President’s Census Form:

    #
    And now let the yelping begin. Beck will find a way to declare Pres. Obama’s choice as “racist”. For the teabaggers it will confirm for them that he is “truly” not one of them.

    As you said the brotha has made a choice where his identity belongs, let others deal with it. ‘Nuff said.

    Hope Michael Eric Dyson will STFU now about PBO not hugging his kinsfolk enough.

    Meanwhile, that 1600 Pennsylvania Ave census form will read for the very FIRST time in history as such:

    – African American male – 48 yrs old (Person 1) (ha ha!!)
    – African American female – 46 yrs old (Person 2)
    – African American Female – 72 yrs old (Person 3)
    – African American female – 11 yrs old (Person 4)
    – African American female – 8 yrs old (Person 5)

    That’s five AAs for that particular address and that have never been there in that particular capacity in this country’s 234 yrs.

    I wonder what happens to the Chicago address census form. Does it go unfilled?

    …………….
    Oh I forgot
    Person 1’s occupation = President
    Hah!!

    just made me smile
