Jeanette Winterson :)

In the know about the power of 27. I adore this author.

I read her collection of short stories this weekend...called "The World And Other Places"

And look what I found.

"Pin her down? She's not a butterfly, I'm not a wrestler. She's a target. I'm not a gun. Tell you what she is? She's not Lot no. 27 and I'm not one to brag."

And another one...
"Anyone who looked up could see it: TWENTY-SEVEN SHOPPING DAYS TO CHRISTMAS, in red letters, followed by a storm of dancing Santas, then a whirlwind of angels, trumpets rampant."

"27 percent of cards contain just the sender's signatire without a personal message."

27s galore

Today was a big day for The Chronicles of 27. :)

Thanks to Eden, for bringing this to my attention:

Oh please. All hell's supposed to break loose when you're 27. When I called Tom Robbins last week to tell him the fascinating fact that sperm leaves the human male at just over 27 miles an hour, Tom replied, “That's good, because women go through a second adolescence at 27.” Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jean-Michel Basquiat, and Jim Morrison all died at 27. (The number 27 is also powerfully romantic; see the last question.)

And there's more!

In fact, I'm going to deliver to you 27 incredibly handsome possibilities. Yes! You'll be driving up to Vermont in no time at all. Just go to—it's my new Web site where you get 27 hot catches and then (because I know you're picky) you trade the ones you don't want…just like baseball cards!

These are answers to questions on Ask E. Jean

Orioles First Baseman Rebuffs Press Corps With Spirited Denials

Rafael Palmeiro, the first baseman for the Baltimore Orioles who was suspended by Major League Baseball after testing positive for steroids, stunned the worlds of baseball and politics alike today by retiring from his sport to become the new White House press spokesman.Most baseball insiders had expected Mr. Palmeiro to return to his position at first base upon finishing his suspension, making his decision to replace Scott McClellan as White House spokesman all the more surprising.But the plain-spoken Palmeiro impressed White House staffers in his first press briefing today, jutting his index finger in the faces of reporters and offering no fewer than twenty-seven spirited denials in answer to their questions.

27 months in jail...

From talk arena. I think 27 might be a little much...but I am not a parent I suppose.

"Via The Agitator, a Virginia couple was sentenced to 27 months in jail for hosting a party for 16 year-olds and providing alcohol. They did it, they say, to protect the kids, which they did by gathering car keys at the door."

Page 3- Route 27
Page 5- A day in the Spring of 1927

The blog post that goes like this...

Monty Python's Spamalot," a loose - and loony - adaptation of the 1975 film "Monty Python and the Holy Grail," won the top prize at last night's Tony Awards, adding a Tony for best musical to a résumé that already includes a $27 million advance, international press coverage and more knights in tights than any other show on Broadway.

From the Opinion Journal :)

Watching the Watchers
Australian blogger Tim Blair calls our attention to an amusing kerfuffle Down Under that involves this Web site. It began when Janet Albrechtsen, a columnist for the Australian newspaper, gave a plug to the work of Arthur Chrenkoff:

Good news [about Iraq] is not hard to come by. But when something positive does happen, it either gets filtered through the anti-war eyes of the media or is all but ignored. And that is what the terrorists are counting on. They must detest The Wall Street Journal. Each fortnight the paper's website ( includes a round-up of good news from Iraq. It makes for refreshing reading, if only to even up the Iraq ledger.

Last week came the latest instalment, all 27 pages of it.

27 pages of good news, from the prestigious Wall Street Journal? We wanted to know more . . . but couldn't find it on their web site.

Somehow, I ended up drinking about 27 pitchers of bowling alley beer. You know that shit is overcarbonated, right? I STILL have a headache from it. Also? when we came home from the bowling alley? after drinking 27 pitchers of beer? I drank one more.

I want my TWO DOLLARS!

In the movie Better off Dead with John Cusack, Lane (Cusack) is chased by a crazy paperboy who follows him everywhere asking for the two dollars the family owes him. He rides a bike, and the bike has a number 27 on it.


From the New Yorker...

Issue of 2005-03-21

Red Mascara doesn’t much care whether the tomato is a fruit or a vegetable, and if he were a less patient man he might have become bitter over the expedited treatment that the tomato seems to be receiving in the statehouse. For forty-four years, Mascara, who is eighty-two, and whose birth name is Joseph Mascari, has been lobbying for the recognition of an official Garden State song; New Jersey is the only state that doesn’t have one. Specifically, Mascara is campaigning on behalf of his own composition, “I’m from New Jersey,” which he wrote in 1960 and then recorded in twenty-seven different versions—symphonic, marching band, keyboard. Every legislative session, without fail, Mascara appears in Trenton to plead his case, passing out gumdrops around the statehouse—to no avail.

Lesson 27

While sitting in the Funeral Home, my brother grabbed this book, "How to Survive the Loss of a Loved One" and took a whirl at seeing what Lesson #27 would be. Seemed way too relevant to my life. ugh.

Lesson 27-Earlier Losses May Surface
You may have unresolved losses from the past, previous relationships, rejections, disappointments, hurts, and that wellspring of loss- childhood.,

A contemporary loss can release a prior unhealed loss.

You may feel that your responding unreasonably to a loss, in fact you may be healing past losses too.

Give yourself permission to mend it all.

Let it heal.

Make peace with your past.

If we could have only cut the $27 million....

On Tuesday, DeBenedetti cast a 10th vote for a second legal step, but he said he wouldn't do so a third time without Giambra agreeing to deeply cut spending, and set a goal of $27 million. That's the amount the county would give up if the sales tax went to just 9 percent.

Blogs blogs blogs

But look at the number!

Blog Creation, Readership Rises in 2004

NEW YORK - Readership of online journals known as blogs grew significantly in 2004, driven by increased awareness of them during the presidential campaign and other major news events, according to a study released Sunday. Twenty-seven percent of online adults in the United States said in November they read blogs, compared with 17 percent in a February survey by the Pew Internet and American Life Project.
