To be fair, it's not every day that I take a gander at a someone's landing strip while lovely, lithe, and potentially litigious ladies wander around (and curiously fail to stand strategically posed by my desk), but today I had an excuse. An iron-clad excuse. One which, once explained, would lead people inexorably to the conclusion that no, nothing inappropriate was going on. And that excuse?

Um, yeah. Like anyone's going to believe that horse shit, but it's true. While reading about one of the most idiotic decisions the EU parliament had made, I started reading one of the blog responses.

And then my eyes frantically scrolled around the page and I realized just how much explicitness was there without me even noticing. How was that possible? Because when I'm focusing on politics, I really focus. I wonder what would have happened if anyone noticed.
