Dickie's Quickies

Having trouble keeping up with the players in the Abramoff scandal? Not sure what it's all about? No problem as the Washington Post has a concise and thorough list.

While we're talking politics, the BBC News reports on what Northern Ireland Secretary, Peter Hain, had to say about the troubled politics in the region. Choice quote:
There will be more big decisions to be taken in the future, not least on policing and criminal justice, and those decisions should be taken by politicians elected by those who will be most directly affected by those decisions. That is the point of devolution.
That's the point of "devolution"?!!? Someone better explain that to these guys.

Speaking of speaking, I'm sure that a talking vibrator qualifies as devolution. Yes, you can record your own messages in the vibrator. I don't recommend doing this while you're drunk. Nor is it funny to leave a prank message on your friends vibrator. Other tips from the site:

1. Be relaxed, have fun—this is not a job interview.
2. Take a risk—be creative.
3. Personalize your recording—call your lover by name or pet name.
4. Be descriptive, your not there so create a fantasy with your voice.
5. Don’t malign your partner—stay positive, don’t be mean or negative.
6. Be giving—focus on your partners desires, not your own.
7. Speak slowly and clearly—don’t whisper, it will sound fuzzy and distorted.
8. Create new messages using more than one chip for different moods and occasions.
9. Reminisce—you can never go wrong being romantic.
10. Don’t be degrading towards your partner—it only promotes unhealthy sexual attitudes.
