  2. A classic mare just happened:

    Knock on door, kind of late getting there, I open it and say, “Hello!”

    Pest control guy writing, looks up startled and starts laughing. He says, “you kind of scared me!”

    I say, “that’s me! Pretty scary.”

    He says, “No, no, I’ve just never seen anyone answer the door with such enthusiasm.”

    I said, “It’s the coffee.”

    He says, “well should I knock on the door when I’m done, or just leave the paperwork? Oh, and thanks for making my day!” He’s still laughing.

    Oh and second!!!

  3. STOL defined.

  4. I agree with your take on the Miss Manners Moment, Leon.

    MBA Grad: Mom, I’m going to a woman’s house tonight for dinner.
    Mom: Oh, okay.
    MBA Grad: Yeah, she and her friend are going to teach us table manners.
    Mom: But you already know how to use a spork.

  10. Cater to colleges and corporations alike.

  11. Also market the services to head hunters and recruiters offices.

  12. Bad table manners are a deal breaker for me. I’ve left relationships/dates because of the way a woman eats. Usually after you know what, though.

  13. No, what?

  15. They’ve been shampooing the carpet outside my office (because I’m near the kitchenette) for the last hour.

  17. After I pick up the check and escort her to her residence.

    It’s as if you expected some sort of crude rejoinder.

  18. Poor manners are a deal breaker for me too.

  19. “After I pick up the check and escort her to her residence.”

    MJ has good manners, I will not be slapping him upside the head (which shows poor manners).

  20. It’s really almost painful anymore to go out to a restaurant and see the horrid manner people exhibit, adults and children alike.

  21. Cyn, that is so ridiculous. Our parents smoked like chimneys in front of us (until they quit cold turkey). We try to protect our children too much. Crap happens, trying to stop everything is stupid.

  22. Still going. Why the fudge this has to happen during prime working hours is a mystery to me.

  23. Well said, Cyn. I’ve been grossed out at a restaurant. Yikes.

  24. Have any of you made these? I’m making them tonight. MJ notice the CUMin:

  25. Still going. Why the fudge this has to happen during prime working hours is a mystery to me.

    Because otherwise the union scum want to be paid overtime?

  26. Think of it as white noise, Leon. Peaceful and soothing and relaxing.

    Also, buck-up buttercup.

  27. My cousin had fajitas once. We had to tie her arms behind her back to keep her from itching it constantly. & that damned anti-fajitas cream was almost $40/oz.

  28. Whose turn is it to kick Stark’s ass?

  29. What roasts my rump is seeing guys at the table wearing a fucking ball cap.

    Having been in the Navy, wearing a hat indoors is anathema to me, but I’ll overlook it in others, unless it involves sitting at the table.

    If you have it on backwards, well then, you’re just a jackhole.

  30. Why the hell do we have a picture of that marxist asswipe on our dimes?

  31. Finally!

    Our custodial staff is a contract. Chances are good that this had to happen because they have to be escorted and no one who could do that bit wanted to come in for off-hours sitting around.

  32. At every race, the national anthem is either sung or played. There are always a ton of people that leave their hats on. I’m an idiot, and even I know not to do that.

  33. Why the hell do we have a picture of that marxist asswipe on our dimes?

    Prolly cuz he was the “Inspiration” for the March of Dimes way back when – Polio awareness and all that.

    I’m just guessing – I didn’t take the time to look it up.

  35. At every race, the national anthem is either sung or played. There are always a ton of people that leave their hats on.

    There’s nothing that will make me bristle faster than this.

  36. I’ve spent enough time around active duty and reserve folks that the hat-wearing habits rubbed off on me. Passing through a door means hat on or hat off, depending on direction.

  37. I’m an idiot, and even I know not to do that.

    Because you were taught that.

    These days, it is much more important to be respectful of the rights of transgendered Muslims than to show respect/pride in a country founded by rich,entitled, mysogynistic White racists.

    Back to the re-education camps with you.

  38. Quick! Who was the speaker of this quote talking about?:

    The males — and all of the women — were taken by him, down to the crease in his trousers. If there was any flaw in him it was that he was almost too perfect.”

    The answer is guaranteed to surprise you…..

    (I’m catching up on my Kindle reading)

    .

  39. My standards have been ratcheting downward over the years. I’m surprisingly willing to overlook people leaving their ballcaps on during the anthem. And so very, very few people even know to stand and remove hats during the passing of the colors. So virtually any gesture of recognition for the flag, and I’m not gonna get all stabby.

  40. The answer is guaranteed to surprise you…..
    (I’m catching up on my Kindle reading)
    .

    Uh, this is either from Jane Austen or David Brooks.

  41. My standards have been ratcheting downward over the years.

    (Not that I’m not guilty of this somewhat as well…) But why?
    Isn’t that sort of the problem/trap that we conservatives have fallen into?

    I get that we need to pick our battles, our hills to fight, but why should we?

  42. Once or twice a year I happen to be leaving the post office when the mail lady’s lowering the flag. It’s hard wired to stop and put my hand over my heart. Figured I’d look dumb saluting 15+ years out of uniform.

  43. There’s a lady at every race, and I mean every one I’ve done in the past two years, that wears fatigues (?) to run or bike in. She also has pictures of KIA soldiers sort of made into a cape streaming behind her.

    I’ve never talked to her, but I’ve been told that her son was killed a few years back, and she competes in these races to raise money for wounded vets.

    When I first started seeing her, it was common the she would be throwing up after, or even during the race. It’s hot in the summer and she’s in heavy gear.

    Now she looks like she’s made of iron, and seems to enjoy the races rather than struggling through them. It’s been a really interesting transformation to watch.

  44. Cyn, the Bangor City Council banned smoking in cars when children are present in 2007.

    I think they also have laws prohibiting stabbings, rapes and murder.

  45. cumin is a great spice, I use a lot of it in my Dave’s Afterburner Chili.

    Toast it in a hot pan first, then grind it. Quite a difference!

    I am going to try soaking it in oil too. Should release even more oil-soluble compounds.

  46. MJ, that reminds me of the guy who runs with his disabled son in marathons and triathlons.

    http://www.teamhoyt.com/

    Run a marathon, and push someone else through it. Quite an accomplishment.

  47. “she competes in these races to raise money for wounded vets.”

    That’s a reaction that benefits society. For one that does not see Cindy Sheehan (btw, has anyone heard any news stories on her lately?)

  48. Whether I salute or place my hand over my heart depends on the nature of the event. If it’s primarily military in nature, I salute. If it’s primarily civilian in nature, I go old school.

    I think it was 2010 when the law was changed to allow veterans to render the hand salute.

  49. Coronavirus?

    I’ve seen some of their videos. I tend to think about them when I’m being a pussy or feeling sorry for myself.

  53. A quick way to get people to remove their hats is to have it announced over the PA system when everyone is asked to stand for the singing of the National Anthem.

    “Will you please rise (and remove your hats) for …..”

    People are sheep – they’ll do it without wondering why they’re being asked to do it.

  54. Wiser, you may wanna go back and fiddle with that other guy’s log in info.

  55. Gentlemen are to remove their hats. Ladies are not supposed to.

    Of course, they’re also supposed to be wearing hats, gloves, and stockings, but there you go.

    I don;t really swear that much in public, so that’s not a big issue, but I doubt comments like my “large rack” thing will be tolerated for very long….

  76. Jimbro – I love it. But, just so you know, I voted for Nixon.

  77. Of course, they’re also supposed to be wearing hats, gloves, and stockings, but there you go.

    The dress is optional and not recommended.

  78. I’ll admit that my manners have decayed to some extent, due to the people that I used to spend time with. Perhaps now that this is no longer the case I can focus on improving myself again.

    That said, I always remove my hat when indoors, pull a ladies chair out for her, stand up when she leaves the table and returns, don’t talk with my mouth full, say ‘please’ and ‘thank you’, and don’t stuff my face. I figure I’m still ahead of the general population.

  79. Had I been of age, I’d have voted for Nixon and Ford.

  80. I was at Boy Scout camp when they announced that Nixon resigned over the loudspeaker. It was one of those “Where were you moments?” in my life.

    But if wiserbud got up from the bar, would you push his stool in?

  88. Has anyone made homemade amaretto before? I’m looking at making some as a gift for a friend and want to know if there are any difficulties.

  89. …worse than Hitler.

    I’ve got a great idea! Let’s argue about something, but the starting point is comparing the other side to Nazis.

  90. Goebbels and Himmler made their own amaretto. Why can’t you leave Poland alone, Alex?

  91. Hitler was always photographed wearing pants. I’m just saying is all.

  92. I’ve got a great idea! Let’s argue about something, but the starting point is comparing the other side to Nazis.
    —————————————-
    I don’t want to argue, because anyone who does may as well be Goebbels and Himmler.

  111. Teresa, where was your quote from?

    Sorry – got distracted doing other things…..

    The quote was referring to Ted Bundy – the quote was from someone who was working with him on a political campaign (apparently before he started killing girls, even though he was psychopathic).

    I just found it interesting that the political hoi polloi A) Is so impressed by the crease of a person’s pants; and 2) Is so easily fooled by psychopaths.

  114. He only wants to destroy the Republican Party. All of the lies, disinformation, pivots, leaks, and propaganda are for this result.

    He’s a dick.

    I do like how the media puts out a story about how upset they are with him, then fall all over themselves to bask in his light when he looks down on them from his throne. Its so high school drama.

  115. Someone should put out a coffee table book of TFG collages made by the WH press corps.

  116. I’ve learned to live absolutely and completely and totally in the here and now. I don’t worry, think, or concern myself with the past or, for that matter, with the future, except only to the extent necessary.

    I don’t think I need to feel guilty anymore, because I try to do what’s right, right now. And that’s it!

    “Now, some people……could listen to what I just said and say, ‘See, he’s a sociopath,’ or whatever term they use. ‘He doesn’t feel any guilt. Oh, how terrible! He doesn’t feel any guilt.’ Ha! “

    I feel sorry for people who feel guilt. I feel sorry for people who are drug addicts, or who are criminals. I feel sorry for business executives who have to lust after money and power. I feel sorry for a lot of people who have to do things that hurt them. But I don’t feel sorry for anyone who doesn’t feel guilt, because the guilt doesn’t solve anything, really. It hurts you.”

  117. Someone should load an iPod with TFG speeches for the WH press corps.

  118. I finally figured it out – the MFM is the equivalent of all of those idiot starry-eyed girls who sit on the front row at the trials of men like Manson and Bundy, convinced that they are in love and telling anyone who will listen that “He’s not a monster – he’s sensitive and caring and misunderstood…..”

  119. Someone should put out Obama’s yearbook with all of the well wishes and flirty notes from the media.

    Not that they’re bad guns, they just don’t feel good to me.

  196. I understand Dave. This is something Laura and I will be sharing.
    It will suck for both of us but we will adjust.

  197. Nice choice, but shoot it first Scott.

    Heh. Scott has really big mitts. He handled a similar-size pistol at our friend’s shooting range recently and his hand practically wraps around it twice. He has to back his hand off it like a teacup…no.

    That Ruger is a nice carry size, but we shall see about practicality, shooting-wise.

  198. Baby glocks are nice, you can get an extended magazine for pancake-hands Mcgee.

  199. Is there a line of guns marketed to gay dudes?

    There will be.

  200. Hey crazybear, raise your hands if you`re sure.

  204. Good evening children.

    Spent the day getting switched over to the new well. So far, so good. Have to go check it again in a few minutes.

    Re. manners at a restaurant……..

    One of the worst things I ever saw was a fat, dirty, greasy guy at a pizza place. Sitting with a group of 8, two large pizzas on the table, guy whips out a pair of nail clippers and starts trimming his nails right next to the pizza. Egad.

  205. Scott, Glock G19. Can’t go wrong with it.

  206. Just a suggestion, didn’t mean to be all “gunny” on ya. Rugers are great firearms. Having seens the difference between your Hulk like hands and LauraW’s teensy mitt, sharing might not be the primary goal. Should you decide you have different needs however, both of you should shoot each other’s firearms (not a euphemism). All of my girls can handle the full size 1911 and the Kimber (smaller .45).

    Also when the hell are you gonna get the shotgun you bought in 2009?

  207. Scott,
    I’m prejudiced against 9mm. Unreliable expansion and a danger of over-penetration.
    For that kind of money, you could get a Glock-27.
    Go shoot both.

  208. Chris, a friend of mine is a big 1911 guy. He was ragging on a 9mm owner. 9mm guy: “Oh, it’s a pissant caliber? Here let me shoot you with it!” Shut my buddy up right quick.

    I shoot most guns pretty well. In my opinion, the best balance of shootability and carryability are the Lightweight Commander .45 ACP, and the Glock G19 9mm. Both are good pistols, but the Glock is easier to shoot for most people. A lot cheaper to shoot as well.

  209. I’m not a total 9mm hater, but if you’re gonna go with that, why not go up just a touch and get a .40? Much better ballistics, and very, very minor difference between the rounds.

  210. Great holy all that is not: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RJcQLZuhbeA

  211. Pepe,
    I’m a 1911 guy, too. Unfortunately, I’m 6′ and 138 lbs, so it’s pretty hard to carry my big-one concealed. I’ve got the small 1911, also. That works pretty well in a pancake on the small of my back.
    The baby Glock is 40cal and a little bigger that a Walther PPK. I’ve sold all my 9mm except the Walther P-38(1943) because it’s a very cool machine (the action). It’s way too muzzle-light for a self-defense carry.
    The “pocket-gun” is an AMT Backup .380. NOT a STOPPER, by any means. More of a “Let me know when you want me to stop shooting you in the face” deterrent…

  212. Hard to conceal.

    http://www.infobarrel.com/media/image/58044.jpg

  213. By the way, if you’ve ever heard the term “chain gun” and wondered what they meant, here’s a drawing of the bolt and bolt carrier assembly for one. There’s a cam on the top of the chain that follows a track on the bolt carrier to move it fore and aft and turn the bolt.

  214. My spouse(Anita) has let her CCW expire. She has a Colt Cobra and a Jackass-Rig that is very nice and will fit under the lightest jacket/over-shirt. Pistol under the left-arm, two speed-loaders under the right. It will take her 30 days to get it re-instated, with a penalty for letting it lapse.
    The person that was her biggest threat is dead, but there are others. If you have the ability to determine your own fate/degree of helplessness, do so. Do not choose to be a victim…

  215. for scott & Lraw:
    (A 34 ounce bat works well for some hitters, but big bats only offer an advantage if they can be easily controlled. The rule of thumb is, the biggest bat you can easily control is the best bat for you.)

    this from Seecamp – http://www.seecamp.com/companyhistory.htm

    i own a couple of these.

    “one size fits all” – doesn’t

    (opinion)a 1911 is the close contact sidearm of choice; however, a shotgun is better: they are awkward at the Stop and Shop though; you get weird looks , go figure

    The extra cost of equipping yourselves with an appropriately fitted personal carry firearm makes sense from a safety and sadly a legal standpoint – if you can’t hit your intended target, it’s not a very useful tool.

  216. A nice little .38 that can handle +P would do well for Laura.

  217. but practice with lighter loads, or that .38 will make your hand ache.

    Both my girls carry .38 and practice with it. But those lighter frame handguns will wear your hand out at practice time.

  218. I have a 5-shot Taurus ultralight that I like for carry. Weighs 17 oz unloaded, takes +P, but it’s so light that the +P kick like a mule. Comfy, though. More rounds would be nice, but it’d be a heavier gun.

  219. Chris, I’m 5’9″ 140. Can conceal a G19 or Commander under a T shirt. Full size 1911 is too heavy for me to carry all the time. Don’t really care about 9mm vs. .45, shoot somebody in the face with either one and they’ll quit bothering you. I don’t like any 1911 smaller than a Commander. Timing of the action is too critical (slide speed in recoil is faster on the small slide), and reliability goes way down. The most important attribute of a defensive weapon is that it goes bang every single time.

  220. I have small hands. I’ll be looking going to Cabelas next week to check out a gun for me.

  221. I loaded 1000 rounds of .38 140grain wad-cutters over 2.7 grains of Bullseye for Anita to practice with.
    Shooting +P in the aluminum-frame Cobra will turn your your hand to hamburger real fast.
    Sharp checkering on the grip.

  222. Oso is a carney?

  223. Pupster, the early years. This explains a few things……….

  227. Dan was laughing at the Crazybear gif. I may have “accidentally” stepped on his gouty foot.

  228. oso, since you have given up facebutt for Lent, I have given up my place of employment. Finally.

    Would it be wrong to snicker at my former nemesis’ turn of events? Or should I just respect karma?
    She is the one who made my life miserable for over a year. She dumped her husband of some years after she hooked up with another dude in a bar.

    He gave her some itchy burnies from the get-go. I’m told it’s the variety that will haunt her for life.

  229. Wasn’t me, honest.

  230. Way to go, beasn!!!! I’ll snicker for you. You can respect karma. (Except that it really isn’t karma, but I’m an ugly American that doesn’t care about the real definition of karma that was explained once, either here or at the IB by smart people)

  231. Read two more trashy novels last night. Averaging 4 books a day without FB. Good thing next Tuesday is New Release book day.

  232. *pokes with a stick* you wusses who go to bed at reasonable hours still about?

  233. Hi Revvy!!!!!

  234. Hi Oso :)

  235. When do you get to come to OK again?

  236. October – and I mean to stay there this time :D

  237. SQUEEEEEE!!!!!

  238. XD yeah, the boy and I are planning to get an apartment together. Still in the nascent stages – we have a lot of saving up to do, but barring some huge financial disaster it should be doable.

  239. Job prospects or will you be able to transfer?

  240. **peeks in**

  241. I should be able to transfer if I have to, but the boy thinks he might be able to find me something better through some family/friend contacts, so we’ll see what ends up happening.

  242. *pokes xbrad with a stick*

  243. Hey now!

    That’s not fair. I’m not allowed to poke back.

  244. I take nothing for granted in the TFG economy. Our hiring freeze supposedly ended with fiscal year 2012, yet we’re still not hiring. Albuquerque’s minimum wage increase is causing all kinds of problems too.

  245. The boy won’t even entertain the idea that I won’t be coming back with him in October – I might have to live in with his family for a bit, but one way or another we’re both pretty gung ho about it.
    xbrad – Exactly.

    … in other news, can I gush about how we might be getting a new puppy in the Revvy/West household? Cause we might be getting a puppy and I’m squeeing about it.

  246. What kind of puppeh?

  247. Mom wants another Wheaten Terrier.

    Lookit the puppiiieees http://www.laughlinkennel.com/WHEATEN_TERRIER.html?gclid=CIu13arlw7UCFUZa4AodXmoAxQ

  248. Does the boy have to go to Connecticut first, before you move to OK? Meat the Morons/Hostages?

  249. Puppehs!!!!! Cute faces!!!

  250. He’s coming up here to make nice to my mom and dad, and to help me make the drive (cause, yanno, I need my car). Originally we planned on taking a little mini-vacation to NYC cause he’s never been and NYCC is that week, but that looks like it might get scrapped for money reasons.

  251. They’re so adorable! And those are the actual puppies we’re looking at – So one of those might end up back here :)

  252. I like Sara 4 and Snow 1. I picked MaryAnn in a photo and she’s a freak! Money reasons weigh in a lot. So do road trips! (Watched NL Vacation today)

  253. My favorite is Snow 2 – lookit that face!
    But hopefully the road trip will be fun. The boy put up with my terrible navigating in November at least XD

  254. I’m pretty certain it’s in the H2 bylaws that we have to have a vote on whether he’s suitable for you, Revvy. And that means a meatup to evaluate him.

  255. XD I dunno… He’s not a libtard by any means but he’s pretty firmly in the middle of the road. And considering how outspoken he is… I can see some friction with him and some of the Morons. Diplomacy is not his strong suit.
    Then again, he’s got about 50 lbs on most of the horde, so they might just decide to leave him be XD

  256. Snow 2 has cute feetses! Pretty sure XB is correct about the H2 bylaws.

  257. G’night people. HHD posts early and it is my favorite day of the week.

  258. Otay Oso – sleep tight <3

  259. I made it!!!

  260. Yay!

    Get a good night’s sleep, and knock ‘em dead in the interview tomorrow, Vman!

    //////////

    Revvy, not everything at a meatup is all politics, all the time.

    Besides, once we approve of him, you can work full time on his conversion to the Dark Side.

  261. I forgot my dress shirt
    What a calamity yesterday was

  262. Well shit. One of the four dead in the OC shooting spree was a former co-worker of my sister. Good guy, devout Christian, family man.

  263. Hiya VMax!

    Xbrad – this is true. He’d prolly get along with most of the horde on a social basis.

  264. Mare, who’s your friend?

  265. I am driving a Kia Rio 2013 model. After waiting 15 min for the ice to melt off the ws I got all Waltrip on it on Waltrip hwy then I slowed down on Billy Graham hwy

  266. The sun has gone down and the moon has come up,
    And long ago somebody left with the cup,
    But he’s driving and striving and hugging the turns,
    And thinking of someone for whom he still derps.

  267. Good morning all!

    Buckets of rain last night melted a lot of snow.

    Off to work—long day today.

  268. He’s derping the distance. He’s going for speed.

  269. Up since 545. Washed all the dishes, got some chicken broth heated, started some thighs roasting with salsa, fed and medicated the pets, and brewed a big pot of… hot water.

    Farg.

  270. Up since 5. Showered, shaved, big pot of coffee, answered work emails received from 6-10 pm last night, dogs fed, and blog post completed.

    I think I may go to the range later today. The gun talk has sort of put it in my head that I need to get out there again.

  271. Up since 6:30.

    Ate a tangerine.

  272. I haven’t gone shooting in over 10 years now. Crap.

  273. HAHAHA

    Scroll down and look at the troll making snide comments on Kate Middleton’s looks….hahahhaha

  274. Why would that fatso, yellow toothed, cow say anything? She really doesn’t care that she’s ugly? Maybe enjoys the attention of people pointing out she’s gross?

    Oh and good morning. hahahahaha

  275. wakey wakey

  276. I know two people who had surgery for endometriosis and neither of them gained a pound.

    Yeah, Carin has two days off. Whatcha wanna talk about Carin?

  277. Hi Car in. We miss you.

  278. I’M HERE!!! Yes two days off.

    So. Fill me in. what have i missed? i know V-man has an interview, but what for? Anyone know?

  279. Some people react differently to corticosteroids. Some gain a little water weight at first and then it goes away.

    Some gain a little water weight and assume they’ll keep gaining weight, so they eat 4 kg of “crisps” a day and drink tea with their sugar and then claim the PILF is ugly.

  280. Daily Mail took that out of context. Classic Brit news sensationalism.

  281. HA! Another legislator in CO recommends Judo for rape prevention.
    Really, it simply confirms my fear that only the dumbest run for office.

  282. Her comments as stated seem to be about Kate in particular. Did she mean them for the Royalty in general?

  283. So… does he know that jiu-jitsu (which would later be peacetime adapted to become judo) was invented by peasants whose oppressive feudal lords forbade them weapons?

  284. Yeah, she was ragging on the monarchy and how they create this wooden image out of the princesses, I guess. Ace put up an apology post about it.

  285. Best comment I read at the Telegraph:

    “Let’s stop this. The woman is trying to sell her book and wants publicity. The best and cheapest way is to say something offensive. Let’s not play along with it.”

  286. Where’s cArIn? I wish she’d hang out here more.

    *sigh*

  287. Some artichoke seeds I ordered came in yesterday. I need more potting soil. Gonna try to grow a raft of seedlings and share them.

  288. I would, but people keep yammering-on about English royals.

  289. I’ve been up since 430. Mrs. Pupster forgot to add coffee to the coffee pot last night…must be having and affair with Leon. I finished the last Longmire book this morning, now I have nothing to read.

  290. I am back from buying a new shirt in a strange town where I don’t know where anything is.
    Did I mention I already lost my room key? One of those days continues.

  291. Still not sure why someone so repulsive would think commentary on the appearance of the royalty is prudent. I would love to have read attacks on Prince Charles from her. Scuttling his idiotic beliefs on Global warming, population control, alternative energy and vegetarianism. Now that, would have been worth reading.

  292. Sorry vman.

    I didn’t tell you guys about my horrible, no good, rotten Monday.

    it was horrible.

    But that was two days ago, so meh.

  293. You can do it, Vmax.

  294. Vman, big, deep breath. Remember you’re “exactly what they’re looking for.”

    You’re going to nail this Play to your strengths on your resume.

  295. Relax, and project an attitude of calm confidence, Vmax.

  296. Ironing and stuff see you on airport wifi

  297. Hopefully we’ll have a new (HHD) thread for you when you’re done.

  298. You’re gonna look great and do great, Vmax.

  299. HHD is up / New Poat

  300. Check your fly.
