Stuck at work? (David Bowie edition)

Are you one of the thousands of unlucky bastards stuck in offices throughout West Virginia while coworkers are out freezing their balls (or ovaries) off in their treestands? Well, here is a pretty good live performance of "Life on Mars?" by David Bowie, an oft-overlooked classic from an era chocked full o' classics, to help get you through the day:

If no one is in your section or wing or annex today, use this opportunity to practice your Bowie impersonation. I try to do my imitation a British Kate Hepburn as a very confused young genius as I sing along.

Also check out Bowie's original video from the '70s:

...ASAT Top Five Fall Foods

1. Chili. Nothing takes the chill out of the air like some warm Texas-style beef 'n bean chili. M top local choice would be Chili Willi's Texas Red.
2. Fall/Winter Squash. It is always cheap and hard to beat taste-wise when baked with salt, brown sugar, and butter.
3. Brats. Lots of fat and protein for extra padding while sitting on the hard, cold bleachers at a football game.
4. WV Hot Dogs. Never a bad time for 'em. Most of the best places are still open.
5. Tudor's Mary B. See #s 4 & 5.

Dems pick up about 20 in the House and end up with 58 (including Sanders and Traitor Joe). Since he will be uneeded, the Dems can give 'em da boot.
