Saturday’s Cornucopia of Crap

I think I have a mild form of ADD.  I can focus long to finish a crossword or cook a meal but longer than that and I feel the need to do something else.  That is one of the reasons I find this so amazing.

Huh?

Reminder: The ABJ is watching you.

    The end of the world is nigh!! Beware! Beware!

  2. PJM – What are your 17 little heathens up to?

  3. My mom bought them a little playpool yesterday, so they’re taking their fishing nets and getting the black widows out.

  4. *ringing bell

    Bring out your dead! Bring out your dead!

  5. The Hooterville Trolley unexpectedly dropped off several passengers at my health club this morning … some days at the gym are better than others … just sayin’

  6. I’m not dead yet!

    awwwwwwww, that’s so cute. I think it’s sweet of those women to spend their mandatory volunteer hours at the rest home.

  8. I have to go float the pool. Enjoy your day

  9. Clint, I like the new avatar. Saw where Shim and Americano had new ones, too. I should clear out my cache more often. (What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.)

  10. PJM! Now stop that.

    *Hugs PJM*

    *Salutes Chief*

    *Waves to Jewstin*

    Gotta go eat lunch now then clean up for the day. Enjoy your afternoon.

    Go Kenny Perry!

  11. Romy, that’s my daughter’s new Mini Aussie puppy.

  12. Dude, why are you putting that pic of yourself before the shaved head and goatsee back up. I’m really disappointed, y’know, like when your mom found your bag of weed the first time, disappointed. You’ve crossed the line!!

  13. what pool ar eyou floating in sohos?

    awwwwwwww, thanks for the hugs clintbird.

    gotsta leave in a little bit for the chili cook-off at the beach. I feel sorry for pjdaddy because he’s got to sell water at it and it’s the hippy beach in San Diego. They fought against Starbucks coming there, you know, cuz it’s like all corporate and schtuff. His booth is right next to a patchouli and incense booth

  14. Heh, this has to be the wrong picture —

    HAHAHAHAHA! The caption underneath the photo is priceless.

    Michael Jackson’s family is gathered at their Encino compound to make plans for the singer’s funeral.

  15. Romy – Still not talking to me?

  16. MCPO, I did comment on the videos you were linking this morning, but you reminded me that I owe you a bitch-slap for the cankles comment. Which I will save for later, because, well, um, uh, yesterday it was true.

  17. did you piss her off mcpo?

    why? WHY?!?!?!?!?!?!

  18. PJ, both MCPO and XBrad said I had cankles. I insulted XBrad, but he wasn’t around to appreciate it. Oh well. Shim was right, the flights yesterday did not help the situation any. My dad freaked out when I told him – apparently that’s one of the signs of congestive heart failure because it’s poor circulation.

  19. Romy – Are you gonna tie me up (again) before you slap me?

    PJM- NUNYA!

  20. Dude, why are you putting that pic of yourself before the shaved head and goatsee back up.

    That wasn’t me, jerkleg. It was one of the buttsniffers fucking with my poat.

    Prolly mesa.

  21. No, I’m going to taunt you that I bought long black satin gloves at Agent Provacateur, and you don’t get to see them.

  22. PJM- NUNYA!

    You are a bad, bad man!

  23. No, I’m going to taunt you that I bought long black satin gloves at Agent Provacateur

    You were at BiW’s house?

  24. Fire Plug-I’m always right, got it?

  25. I’m going to taunt you that I bought long black satin gloves at Agent Provocateur, and you don’t get to see them.

    We have a name for girls like you. . .

  26. Only if he lives in a casino in Vegas.

    Shoulda just said my purchase at AP and let ’em wonder. The gloves were about the tamest item in the place.

  27. Peeej, have a blast today, be safe and kick a filthy hippy in his vagina if opportunity presents itself.Kthanks. Bring PJD some fag repellant. Smelly bastids.

  28. Okay, I didn’t think you’d cross me after I offered my magnificent cooking skills this am.
    Oh yeah, fuck you, piss stain.Count ’em.

  29. you don’t get to see them.

    We have a name for girls like you. . .

    hahahaha :) Still, adequate revenge for the cankles comment? My feet still hurt, so I can’t kick anyone.

  30. Advil, for swelling, raise feet, to allow junk to move toward the exit hole, Ice bath 20/20-Don’t mess!!! Two days, beautiful ankles again.

  31. I made fun of your cankles, but also gave you simple and practical advice for dealing with discomfort.

    That’s why you love me.

    That and the ‘splodey videos.

  32. XBrad, true, the pillows were put to good use, besides making a fake Mr. RFH in the bed next to me so I could sleep better.

    I do love you for the ‘splodey videos. And most of your smart-ass comments.

  33. Prolly mesa.

    Nope, not my style.

  34. Creepy header.

  35. Creepy header.

    You’ve never met PJ, have you?

  36. Where is Rosetta’s thong pic? I need to scare the neighbors.

  37. Hey, Xbrad, I found a picture of you while you were in the Army.

  38. Nooooooo, there’s supposed be something for me to read before I go back to chores. Aaaaaaah!!!!

  39. http://tinyurl.com/nvpmsl

  40. **checks for new poat**

    **looks around**

    **does Lady Godiva ride through blog**

  41. *faints*

  42. Man, I post the funniest pic ever of Xbrad, and this place is totally dead.

    My timing sucks.

  43. This is the deadest day ever at AOSHQ as well. IB is dead too, except that Allah linked Geoff’s chart, so that’s something.

  44. Michael, I enjoyed reading the bacon haiku. And it was a funny pic.

    **sound of one hand clapping**

  45. So is the book cover PJM and SoHoS?

    you don’t get to see them.

    We have a name for girls like you. . .

    I believe the polite term is “popular”.

    This is the deadest day ever at AOSHQ as well. IB is dead too, except that Allah linked Geoff’s chart, so that’s something.

    So what yer sayin’ is that without Geoff, you’d be getting no traffic at all, right?

  46. The pic wasn’t that funneh. Not bad. Just not anything…

    what’s the word I’m looking for?

    Oh, yeah!

    NEW!

    It’s old, Michael.

    Not old like you, but still, old.

  47. Romy, are you still here?

  48. And yeah, today seems to be the deadest day evah! on the interwebtubes.

  49. Yes, Clint, what’s up?

  50. Stay here for a minute. I’m going to get something for you to read.

  51. Here you go, Romy … another oldie from my POS blog … hope it provides at least a small chuckle for you before you have to get back to work:

    Thursday, April 03, 2008
    Sort of like parking the Space Shuttle, but different
    So I am trying to get ready for a prostate biopsy. One must, at least two hours before the event, give oneself a Fleet Enema. Now I don’t know about you, but I have no experience with such things. So I am reading the instructions trying to determine how to administer this beast. And follow those instructions for how to self administer the Fleet Enema I did … beings how I was home alone at the time and all … though frankly I don’t think my wife would have been terribly willing to help with the administration of the enema.

    Anyway, as I am getting into the appropriate position, then applying the bottle to its intended target, it came to me – the perfect analogy to explain to the uninformed how one self-administers a Fleet Enema. Here it is. Imagine you are piloting the Space Shuttle and you’re about to attempt a docking maneuver with the International Space Station. Only this time, just to make it interesting, Ground Control has ordered you to turn 180 degrees from the windshield, place your ass up against the windshield, drop your head down into the seat, look back between your legs, and hit the docking point that way. I hope this clears that up for you, should you ever have to experience the same thing.

  52. Clint, heh. There is a training set-up at Johnson Space Center for the astronauts to learn how to take a dump in space.

    And speaking of windshields,
    http://tinyurl.com/lyrke3
    I would give my next paycheck to see a picture of an astronaut mooning the moon, as it were.

  53. Very cool, Romy.

  54. Oh bloody hell, fuck fuck FUCK!
    http://tinyurl.com/lfqqc2

    This is the shuttle mission for one of my experiments.

  55. That doesn’t look good.

  56. Very interesting, Romy. I would have thought of the cabin pressurization trick, but not the dry ice.

  57. Of course, I also would have just yanked the fucking thing out.

  58. Xbrad’s front door:

  61. Of course, I also would have just yanked the fucking thing out.

    It looks jammed pretty good. Re-entry with cracked glass is a bad idea.

    There was an article on NASAWatch about rumors of sabotage at the Cape by workers wanting to delay the pink slips. This doesn’t help.

  62. I was always under the impression they used a “dual pane” with a liner and a pressure pane outside.

    The X-15 had numerous windshield failures, usually with the outer failing, but sometimes the inner.

  63. You are being watched.

    I am masturbating.

    But the two are not related activities.

  64. So what yer sayin’ is that without Geoff, you’d be getting no traffic at all, right?

    Actually, our top post right now is an ancient one by Rightwingsparkle about Michael Jackson’s kids.

    Heh.

  65. By the way, what happened to your Flag Counter? I loved your Flag Counter.

  66. Yeah who took it down?
    The last I checked we had passed Michael in page views, and our secret weapon phat was going to a few obscure places, that we could rub it in with to Michael.

  67. Page views don’t count, Vmax. That’s just retards like me hitting F5.

    The number of unique visitors counts.

    The number of flags counts.

  68. Says you that has a jillion unique.

    We have to have something to hang on to. I mean you do have almost 2 million hits (or 2.5)
    but they don’t count right?

  69. XBrad, it’s at least dual, maybe triple pane. It’s triple on the Space Station.

  70. I have not been to McGoo’s in a while he has some good stuff up

  71. If it’s in between the panes, it could be damaging both.

  72. So what yer sayin’ is that without Geoff, you’d be getting no traffic at all, right?

    Snif. I’m nothing but a hit generator to Michael. Doesn’t he know that there’s so much more to me than blog traffic?

  73. Doesn’t he know that there’s so much more to me than blog traffic?

    Yes, I do. You’re forgetting that I’ve met your wife, and she’s hot.

  74. Yes, I do. You’re forgetting that I’ve met your wife, and she’s hot.

    Looks like you’re thinking about being a hit generator.

  75. We have to have something to hang on to.

    H2 probably has the highest ratio of page views to visitors on the blogosphere, as well as the highest number of comments per post. Both numbers that I used to watch in the early days of IB, because they are good indicators of audience loyalty. You guys are doing great.

  76. If it’s in between the panes, it could be damaging both.

    It’s pretty clearly wedged between the top of the instrument panel and the inner pane of the windscreen.

  77. Looks like you’re thinking about being a hit generator.

    Are you insinuating, Geoff, that I would hit on your wife?!?!?!

    Lutherans do not do such things.

    Unless, maybe, you were a long ways away, like out in California or something, and Mrs. Geoff was really lonely.

  78. It’s pretty clearly wedged between the top of the instrument panel and the inner pane of the windscreen.

    You’re right. Reading comprehension FAIL!

  79. You’re right. Reading comprehension FAIL!

    So, next time a mission to Mars gets lost, we blame you, right?

  81. Are you insinuating, Geoff, that I would hit on your wife?!?!?!

    If “insinuating” is anything like “stating matter-of-factly,” then I probably am.

    Unless, maybe, you were a long ways away, like out in California or something, and Mrs. Geoff was really lonely.

    Well that there is just being neighborly.

  82. So, next time a mission to Mars gets lost, we blame you, right?

    I carry a card on my badge that has English / metric conversion factors, thanks. For exactly that reason.

  83. It’s almost understandable. There’s so much data, and some many data manipulators, there’s bound to be mistakes. And since the projects are one time deals, they never have a production learning curve.

  93. For BiW:

    A Mafia Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper, Enzo, has cheated him out of ten million bucks.

    His bookkeeper is deaf. That was the reason he got the job in the first place. It was assumed that Enzo would not hear anything that he might have to testify about in court.

    When the Godfather goes to confront Enzo about his missing $10 million, he brings along his attorney, who knows sign language.
    The Godfather tells the lawyer, “Ask him where the 10 million bucks he embezzled from me is.”

    The attorney, using sign language, asks Enzo where the money is.

    Enzo signs back: “I don’t know what you are talking about.”

    The attorney tells the Godfather: “He says he doesn’t know what you’re talking about.”

    The Godfather pulls out a pistol, puts it to Enzo’s temple and says, “Ask him again!”

    The attorney signs to Enzo: “He’ll kill you if you don’t tell him!”

    Enzo signs back: “OK! You win! The money is in a brown brief case, buried behind the shed in my cousin Bruno’s backyard in Woodbridge!”

    The Godfather asks the attorney: “Well, what’d he say?”

    The attorney replies: “He says you don’t have the balls to pull the trigger.”

  94. Whassup, buttsnifferz?

  95. I like that one, Chief.

    Dinner tonight is Baked rosemary chicken, garlic mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli, and cold Hornsby’s. Almost makes me forget about the betrayal yesterday.
    Almost.

  96. I’d gladly lose me to find you
    I’d gladly give up all I got
    To catch you I’m gonna run and never stop

    I’d pay any price just to win you
    Surrender my good life for bad
    To find you I’m gonna drown an unsung man

  98. Damnit, MCPO, Imake a joke about it beingdead around here, and you show up in the middle of it and suddenly, it’s only half-dead around here.

  99. Myspacebarseemsnottobeworking.

    That,orI’mdrunkerthanIthoughtIwas.

  100. Sean- Have another snort – it will look fine!

  101. Eh, MCPO is so old, just call it mostly dead…

  102. MCPO, liked the America one better. That one for Sohita?

  103. Romy – For my Missus. Try this one. . .

    It’s good to hear your voice, you know it’s been so long
    If I don’t get your call then everything goes wrong
    I want to tell you something you’ve known all along

  104. Dinner tonight was penne alla vodka with Italian sausage and garlic bread. I need a breath mint.

  105. My SIL is out of town, and my niece and nephew were busy, guess who wanted th hang out with his brother all day today?

    He did provide shrimp.

  106. Eh, MCPO is so old, just call it mostly dead…

    That’s what I was implying.

    Anyway, off to watch Jeopardy and then eat grilled lamb chops.

  107. Dinner tonight was pork&beans (not beasn) with hot dogs and a salad.

    I hate it when my sister decides on the menu. Then decides she doesn’t want to cook. Because otherwise, dinner was going to be orange roughy with wild rice and green beans.

  108. A petite ham steak with German potato salad and a glass of ice water.

  121. Vmax – Why is Emma being fostered out?

  122. I was gonna make my own when I finish present bottle. Seems like very few ingredients.

  123. Vmax, did you adopt Emma too? She does indeed look like a sweetheart.

  124. I love this tune, my wife was from Elyria, OH, it’s close to home for her, seeing that it was headed for Cleveland.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hgI8bta-7aw.

  125. The story I got was she was picked up by animal control in Naples. She has a chip, and her owners were called. They said they would pick her up but never did.
    The rescue group saw her and wanted her. When Animal control did its thing they released her to the rescue, who had her spayed and checked for heartworm etc, and sent her to me to evaluate for 2 weeks. Then she will go on the website for adoption.

  126. I am fostering her Beasn until we find a forever home for her.

  127. Dinner today was at noon. Took the husband out for his birthday to Mimi’s Cafe. He had the fettucini with shrimp, I had a roasted turkey sammich with fruit fries, son had a turkey club and beasnette had a half rack of ribs.

    It was okay and they gave us four large muffins for free because we said it was our first visit. The manager of the joint looked like her pants were painted on. Probably a tactic to get more tips because she did have a cowabunga figger. Mr. Beasn sure noticed.

  128. I was born in Akron shim.

  129. Shim, wow, Harry Reasoner looked old even back then.

  130. Fruit Fries???

  131. I am fostering her Beasn until we find a forever home for her.

    Well, I hope the rescue will find her a great home. Her previous owners should be knocked upside the head for abandoning their girl.

  132. I just love that tune, like most like it that tell a story, that brings you right into the feel of being there.
    V I call it Akorn to drive my MIL nuts, she so easy, I love twisting her.

  133. My Missus is from Piqau near Dayton. I know lots of people from Ohio but, only three that actually live there.

  134. I know lots of people from Ohio but, only three that actually live there.

    What’s that tell you about Ohio?

  135. The cool thing Beasn is I am in charge of the adoption. Emma is my dog and I am finding out about her what she likes doesn’t like etc and what her personality is. If the family does not fit what I think she likes etc then I can say no.

    I want her to be adopted to a good family so it is not a power trip thing, but a what is right for her thing.
    I like that.

    Heheh good for you shim.

  136. Shim, that’s why I used to like Bruce Springsteen. His songs told stories. Then he got brainwashed, got earrings, and started trying to be more like Pete Seeger and protest the war. I didn’t buy his last two albums, and that’s after waiting in line to buy “Tunnel of Love”, “Human Touch”, and “Lucky Town” on the day they came out.

  137. Ohio sucks and I don’t go w/ her to see her folks, I stay home , and they’re not allowed in my house(rule #2) since 2004.

  138. It is a good place to be from

  139. Make that the last four albums. I bought “The Rising” and the “Tracks” set and balked at “Devils and Dust” after hearing the song “Reno”. Can’t listen to that with the kids in the car, nor do I want to sing along.

  140. When my parents left for Florida in 1971, I swore I would move back to Ohio.
    I have visited family and while it is a nice place to visit. I never once thought about moving back.

    Except when I was living in NYC, anyplace was better than there.

  141. Roames, my wife was a harrier and she listened to Born to Run-how funny, every time she practiced, now she can’t stand him.
    Vmax I went 4 times and it was overcast or raining each time.

  142. Anyone seen Underworld, rise of the Lycans, any good? I have 3 free movies from Direct tv.

  143. Shim – I watched last night. I give it 3 out of 5 stars. . . providing you liked the first 2.

  144. MCPO, I liked that first one, thought the second one blew (except for Kate in her outfit). How’s the new girl look?

  145. Shim
    the Cleveland area is very cloudy

    Col McMaster is on Patton 360 on history international

  146. xbrad – hawt!

  147. Ah, Rhona Mitra. I’ve seen her around, never thought about her much. She’s no Kate, but she’s hot. And she has this tidbit on her resume:

    First actress to serve as an original model for Eidos Interactive’s Lara Croft (Tomb Raider).

  148. That’s soon to be Brigadier General HR McMaster. After failing to select twice, the Army finally decided to promote him. There was a great deal of discontent when he was passed over the first time, and almost an insurrection when he was nonselected the second. If he couldn’t get promoted, the young turks said, there was no point in having meaningful jobs in the Army, since only asskissers were going to get promoted.

  149. XBrad – It’s gotten worse since Korea. Usually, in times like these, men like McMaster are promoted and the sycophants make rank in peace-time garrison.

  150. Even I have heard McMaster is a fantastic leader X.
    I truly hope he makes BG

  156. MCPO, you know a Command Master Chief by the name of Jeffery Garber?

  157. xBrad – not off the top of my head. . .

  158. CMC Garger passed away of natural causes while on deployment. He was the CVW-7 CMC.

    http://www.navy.mil/view_single.asp?id=72960

  159. Garber.

  160. xbrad – A real shame. He was a young man.

  161. XBrad – I did know him when he was on one of the “Gator Freighters” out of Little Creek. He was a big guy around 6’5″, IIRC.

  162. “Yea, ooooo aaahhhhhhh. That’s how it always starts. Then there’s screaming and running.”

  163. Young guy. 43. That sucks.

    Nice that they showed some respect for him on the flight deck.

  164. “Yea, ooooo aaahhhhhhh. That’s how it always starts. Then there’s screaming and running.”

    Huh?

    Hi Patty Ann!

    Where’s my pie?

  165. Romy’s been busy…

  166. Watching 2 of 3 in a Jurassic Park marathon. No pie tonight. No sugar tonight in my coffee. No sugar tonight in my cream.

  167. My gread-grandmother was a black-head indian.

  168. Can’t believe I didn’t remember that quote. Jeff Goldblum.

    PattyAnn, I thought you loved me? Why no pie?

  169. Sorry xbrad. Nobody gets pie all the time.

  170. Romy’s been busy…

    The mission cost $499 million, including the cost of the Delta IV rocket.

    Will it provide proof of global warming that doesn’t need to be “enhanced”?

  171. Uh, PA, I never get pie from you.

    Do I look like Dave in Texas/

  172. MCPO, if they don’t find evidence of global warming, it will be because they passed Cap-and-tax.

  173. Well, actually, Michael got all the pie. By default. Default being my fault ’cause Dave already went home.

  174. Intermission’s over. Popcorn’s ready. Want some popcorn, xbrad?
    Bye for now.

  175. Guess I better drive to Texas.

  176. No thanks on the popcorn. Enjoy your movie.

    Just leave me here with the old guy. Fine.

    No problem. I won’t take it personally.

    I’m not hurt.

    Nope.

    Just fine here.

    No. It’s OK. Really.

  177. I’m still here! Actually, I didn’t do anything (that I know of) with the GOES satellite. Not this one either.

  178. I don’t have pie, but I do have seven-layer bars and some decaf coffee.

  179. Ha!

    **laughs at the picture of more money than all the Hostages combined will ever make falling on the floor**

    Not a huge fan of 7 layer bars. And decaf? I thought you loved me.

    Besides, I just grabbed some icecream.

  180. OUCH!! That looks like there could have been oversight in securing the equipment!

  181. I was up until 4 AM last night and don’t care to repeat that, therefore the decaf. Though chatting all night with PJ, Sean, and Americano was fun, it sucked this morning waking up to the leafblower.

    You haven’t had MY seven-layer bars. Unless you just hate coconut.

  182. Hi PattyAnn!

    Good night all.

  183. Humm
    & layer bars sound good Romy

  184. Crap 7 not &!

  185. My Missus doesn’t eat coconut :-( But, she makes the best lemon bars!

  186. IIRC, MCPO, someone “borrowed” the bolts out of the cradle.

  187. Farewell Cmcpo Garber
    GodSpeed.

  188. Good night, Vmax, thanks for all the puppy pics.

  189. Anytime Romy
    Thank you

  190. Vmax always apologizes for posting the cutest puppy pic on the internet on IB. Dude. They enjoy them. 5 or so a night is good.

    50 might be a little much.

    but a little doggie every night is good for the soul.

    For those of you that still have souls.

  191. Romy, I fell asleep last night at 7pm. Slept till a little after 7am. But Thursday, I didn’t go to bed at all.

    I stayed up all night watching One Tree Hill.

    It’s sad, but I’m far more emotionally invested in the lives of some fictional characters than my own family.

    But then again, they are far more interesting, and never ask me to take out the trash.

  192. I think just seeing Emma holding her own against Bear and Zeke means that she’s finding her place in the world. Big change from just a few days ago and does my heart good.

  193. But then again, they are far more interesting, and never ask me to take out the trash.

    HAHAHAHAHA!!! Too true!

  194. My body has no idea what time zone I’m on. I’m aiming for midnight bedtime tonight and get up at 7, then move it back another hour for Monday.

  195. Yay! Fireworks outside my window. Big splodey ones.

  196. Emma’s a good girl.

    I love puppies. Who doesn’t?

    But I like an older dog that’s settled down.

    It’s like an easy chair. Takes a while to get ’em broken in and comfortable.

  197. Haven’t seen One Tree Hill. I talked to my dad tonight, and he has two boxes of Mom’s cookbooks for me. I haven’t spoken to my sister since the day after the funeral, and I kinda like it that way. Dad seems to be handling the grief better than anyone else, including me.

  198. Roamy, I would suggest keeping the lines open, I haven’t talked to my brother in 5 years and the longer it goes, the less chance we’ll start. Just a thought.

  199. Actually, I love teen dramas. It’s a guilty pleasure. I used to watch Dawson’s Creek, for the first season or two, before it went to shit.

  200. Technically, it’s illegal to set off any fireworks that explode or leave the ground, but it is legal to sell them.

    That ordinance was passed a year or two back. Last year on the 4th of July, the police got something like 8,000 phone calls in a few hours and decided they weren’t going to respond on that issue.

  201. Shim, I’ll keep the lines open, I’m just not up for willingly taking on more stress at this point in time. We mended some fences over what she said during Mom’s last days, but she got nosy about what Dad was doing with Mom’s jewelry and got smacked down for it. Dad made sure all the daughters, daughters-in-law, granddaughters, and granddaughters-in-law got some piece of Mom’s jewelry, and she wanted to know who got what. None of her business.

  202. Fireworks are still going off in my neighborhood as we speak.

    Is it bad of me to hope one of my ass clown neighbors has a rocket blow up in his hand?

  203. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hXAjVw-bP5g

    Heh

  204. Completely understand, our parting was after a grandfather’s funeral, time just kept rolling, then it was a year, then two, then 5. My mom had a similar divvy up sit. when the matriarch passed, so I get it.

  205. Sox just went fucking bezerk. Took me a minute to realize that a moth got in the house and he was trying to catch it.

  206. Is it bad of me to hope one of my ass clown neighbors has a rocket blow up in his hand?

    Only if you don’t scream “FIRE!” and turn the garden hose on him.

  207. I’m kinda fortunate that I’m the only boy. When it comes to personal stuff, I got most of Dad’s stuff. When mom goes, the sisters will have to fight over who gets what from mom. Everything else is covered by the trust.

  208. How bout a tune for Car/in? uguess I’ll have to toss it at her again. Just in case she’s watching from behind the curtin.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5irgYeDM2qU

  209. A friend of mine who is handling his dad’s estate threatened to walk off the job as executor and hand everything to his sister if she didn’t STFU. He said there were no possessions worth the hassle he was getting. The sister, when faced with having to handle probate and selling the house, backed down.

  210. XBrad, there’s three brothers, too, and their wives. I will admit that what Dad gave me was the best of Mom’s jewelry, but I was there at the end and helped with the funeral costs so he didn’t need to borrow the money or sell anything off.

  211. RFH, a bit more tame tune from Buckcherry. (I like your links that night, for the record)
    This one has a wawa pedal and noodling guitar.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TnPBdsFmrgQ

  212. Something silly to brighten my mood.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rpq6u8hYgk

  213. Romy, we were settling the estate of a nice old man in the desert, more as a courtesy to his lawyer than as a piece of business, and I swear, the two sons were both the biggest assholes on the planet, accusing each other of theft, and trying to cheat the other out of their inheritance.

    Each one was convinced we were in cahoots with the other brother. They didn’t believe us when we couldn’t settle the estate in 30 days. Uh, in CA? No payouts for 270.

  214. Good one, shim, thanks.

  215. I tell people that in criminal law, you see the best people at their worst, and in family law, you see the worst people at their best.

  216. Who is full of shaving cream??

  217. Alright, let’s have some Eyetalian fun, cheeks pinched, wine flowing, pasta meals
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sFacWGBJ_cs

  218. My son has called me every day since the Missus went off on her retreat. What a good kid!

  219. Did you ever swing the clubs w/ your kid?

  220. The only thing I hope to inherit, and I have told my dad this (though it was a long time ago) is the quilt my grandmother made with the state flower and state bird for all fifty states and the ten-volume set of children’s stories I read cover-to-cover, growing up. I will probably get most, if not all the photographs. Anything else is just stuff.

  221. Shim – Yup! Sure do. He hits it a ton!

    You want Italian? I’ll give you Italian!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWq8jafqYV0

  222. BiW, it’s late, but that sounded backwards.

  223. Romy – Remind me to tell you the story of my brother Kevin sometime.

  224. I got Dad’s Seiko chronograph, which is older than I am, but the Waterman Laurate I got him for Father’s Day ten years before he died, disappeared.

  225. That’s because it was, Romy.

  226. Man, my grammar skillz are gone.

    I told Dad we could be an Amazon dealer with all the books the three of us have. I have at least a couple thousand, and I think Mom had that many just in romance novels.

    Pardon my ignorance, but what’s a Waterman Laurate?

  227. “Did you ever swing the clubs w/ your kid?”

    Please tell me you’re talking about golf. Please?

  228. Pardon my ignorance, but what’s a Waterman Laurate?

    A fine writing instrument. Waterman tends to make some of my favorites. This one was black laquer with a green marble finish and 24 karat gold accents. It was a rollerball model, so it had a cap, that fastened with the unique Waterman ‘click’.

  229. Ah. I never did understand fancy pens, but that’s because I tend to lose them. I can keep a 19 cent Bic forever, but the calligraphy set disappears.

  230. You are a P-I-G pig.
    Oh Pauli, i wanted to know, is there acetaminephan in your combo? If so, I’d like to talk to you off record about some stuff. I had a friend in FL that was a test patient for FDA and the man taught me a lot about scripts, so much so, that I started to inform my Docs.

  231. Nope, the only thing I take to manage the inflammation is Celebrex, and that only when the pain is bad. Mostly I stay drug-free. Except for the black tar heroin. And crystal meth. Cut with crack.

    Yeah.

    But seriously, let’s talk.

  232. That’s good, low pain is nice, I guess. Just trying to keep drinkers away from that evil mixture.

  233. BiW, as a great pen salesman once said to me, “A fine writing instrument is not a pen. It is a piece of jewelry that makes a statement about you.

  234. Anyone up for a bit of Paul?
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Qx2jEfBsqY

  235. Shim, let’s talk.

  236. Paulitics, I’ve just never been impressed by the Rolex crowd. Especially when they come back to my lab and don’t listen to my warning about the 4 kilogauss magnet.

  237. But then, I don’t have a diamond solitaire engagement ring to flash at people.

    I think that will be enough out of me. Good night, y’all. If XBrad comes back, tell him I’d still like a ‘splodey video for the morning, pretty please.

  238. How about some rippin mouth organ from J. Giels?
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5WwB4bLwbWE

  239. Romy, a great pen to men is like a bacon-wrapped schlong is to women. Heaven.

    That’s sick right there, but I don’t know why.

  240. Paulitics, let me check one thing. BRB

  241. I’d still be using my Pelikan rollerball each day if the refills weren’t so freaking expensive.

  242. So I just stick the red dune finish Waterman Expert II ball point in the pocket every dau.

  243. Hey, speaking of tits, where’s PJM and Sohos tonight?

  244. Cross 24kt gold pen and pencil set. They’re about 50 years old.

  245. Hey, speaking of tits, where’s PJM and Sohos tonight?

    You did see the book cover above, did you not?

  246. Yeah, but one of them looked like Brad. I’m so confused.

  247. Man, this place is deader than PattyAnn’s career in porn.

    Night, all.

  248. Way off topic, but how many suits do you figure Chess King managed to sell as a result of this?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ycOpO-PpA-k

  249. Pauli- Rosetta, PJ and PA have my email and the two hot chicks have my FB,so have one of them patch you through. I think we could bounce some info around about the Ts and Ls bony irregularities, Plus my wife is in the business, she actually handled my charts when I was in therapy for a year after my injury. I always learn from other patients more than a 4 minute Dr appt. You know.

  250. I used to buy leather jackets and (nicer)demin jackets from Chess King and it had nothing to do with those fellas.

  251. So, I just installed the hard drive and am waiting “while Setup formats the partition”

    suweeeet! I’m gonna have two out of 5 computers to play WoW on now.

  252. No stopping you now. Did you and the brood have fun today?

  253. I used to buy leather jackets and (nicer)demin jackets from Chess King and it had nothing to do with those fellas.

    Okay, but you have to admit that you liked that song before you became the lead singer of The Cult.

  254. Oh, and I know PJM danced to that song at her prom. I know these things.

  255. I liked any song that would bring female company.Guilty.

  256. No stopping you now. Did you and the brood have fun today?

    We did. We were on the beach and some guys just gave us a kite, which was cool and then some chick from Orange Country asked if I wanted Gavin to be in a commercial. She took my name and number and said, we’ll call you.

    There’s no way in hell that boy would cooperate with anything they’d want and I’m pretty sure it’s one of those scam places where they try to get you to sign up for all sorts of crap, not happening. These people are forever far away, I don’t know why they’d be here scouting out kids on the beach. It’s not like we’d drive the two hours to be suckered into their program

    http://www.ictalentinc.com/

  257. Oh, and I know PJM danced to that song at her prom. I know these things.

    So, you’re trying to rub it in that I went to the bad kids school and didn’t get to go to prom? awesome

    thanks……..just thanks

  258. I found the rub
    If you are accepted into one of our programs, our owner’s business connections will give you the exposure you need and allow you to meet top agents and casting director

    of course they’ll accept you, then they’ll try to hook you up into some sort of classes for acting and modeling. WRONG!!!

    still, they need to market in their area, not 2 hours away

  259. Honey, I’m home.

  260. She took my name and number and said, we’ll call you.

    “Would you be interested in taking a survey about kids in commercials? It will only take about an hour.”

  261. It’s a school, PJ.

  262. There are legitimate places, because there are child models. I know what you mean tho. Dealt with one bad place, but then again I was in that movie. As well as singer of the Cult, so there’s that.

  263. No prom= no preg

  264. “Would you be interested in taking a survey about kids in commercials? It will only take about an hour.”

    hahahahaha, yeah……..then I’ll get calls from Carnival Cruise Lines as well.

    It’s a school, PJ.

    Yeah, just saw that. Still, it baffles me that they’d market to an area so far away. I guess there are people desperate enough to make their kids a star that they’d drive that far for classes. Nope, not happening.

    but the good news is that I’m 84% formatted, then I get to reinstall all the drivers!!

    Oh man I love this!! it’s like Christmas. I could spend all day in Fry’s Electronics store.

    oh speaking of Fry’s. So I was in there today like a couple hours ago and I was checking out some software and these two pony tailed hippies are standing there talking.

    One was an American Indian and the other was a tall skinny white guy. Both in their late 50’s early 60’s I’d say

  265. As well as singer of the Cult, so there’s that.

    I really liked you in the Cult

    so I hear the Indian dude say, “we’ll be able to withstand the Russian takeover”

    so I’m like whooooa, I gotta hear what these dudes are saying

  266. So, you’re trying to rub it in that I went to the bad kids school and didn’t get to go to prom? awesome

    thanks……..just thanks

    “Minus two plus two…fill the hole…”

    Bring back any memories?

  267. so I fake like I’m looking at the software, I mean really studying it…..but then I leave the area because I don’t want to get irritated because they’re hippies, right? They’re whole Russian talk must have been a fluke thing.

    96% done

    But I can’t handle it and I go back and I hear them start talking about Cap & Trade and the weak Republicans

  268. “Minus two plus two…fill the hole…”

    Bring back any memories?

    HAHAHAHAHA!

    No, I didn’t go to the school where a bunch of bad kids happened to be, I got sent to the school because I WAS a bad kid

  269. so I hear the Indian dude say, “we’ll be able to withstand the Russian takeover”

    so I’m like whooooa, I gotta hear what these dudes are saying

    WOLVERMUNCHIES, MAAAAAN!!!!!

  270. Well, the chickens will be screaming in 4 hours, so I should get my 4 hours in. Later westies, and tender of the soaked liver.

  271. Honey, no one cares that I’m home.

  272. Good morning ladies!

    I just got to my hotel in Seattle. Doesn’t BiW or someone live up here?

    I have a pretty light sched the couple of days and the AA team they call the Mariners are out of town.

    DON’T make me go hiking! Cause that would be wrong. I’m TDY DAMMIT!

  273. so anyways, they start talking about Cap & Trade and I can’t take it anymore……..oh, I”m there waiting for pjdaddy to get off work so we can go out on a date w/out the kids.

    So they see me there and I show that I’m agreeing with them and it was so fascinating. Turns out the two men don’t even know each other, they just started talking and were on the same page and then I came in.

    The American Indian dude was all pissed off about the treatment of Sarah Palin and he said it’s because she’s “righteous” and “incorruptible” and how he was talking to this “black feller” about a week ago at Fry’s and the guy’s an Obamabot and how they’re all “flatlined” They’re walking zombies over Obama, he can do no wrong.

    and then we talked about Reagan and he asked me my opinion on what he did about amnesty and the illegal alians………..and a whole bunch of crap.

    And then all of a sudden we realized there were 10 minutes left till the store closed and we all went on our way.

  274. I got sent to the school because I WAS a bad kid

    We had a school in our relatively affluent district like that, where they sent the kids who got in trouble with the law or got pregna–oh, wait…

  275. HI MESA!!!!!!!!!!!!

    mwah!!

    yes phat, I believe both asspenny AND BiW live in that general area

  276. got pregna–oh, wait…

    hahahaha, NO!!!!!!!!!!!

    You guys act like I have a 20 year old hiding somewhere

  277. anyhoo, my point to all that was……….that it’s cool people are talking in the street about this administration and how things are going and that not everyone is apathetic about things

  278. Aren’t you all so happy I told you a bedtime story and put you to sleep?

  279. phat, asspenny lives in NorCal.

    BiW is in Seattle area. TGSG is down by the Columbia, but might be enticed north.

  280. anyhoo, my point to all that was……….that it’s cool people are talking in the street about this administration and how things are going and that not everyone is apathetic about things

    Well, I just learned a valuable lesson about not pre-judging people. It doesn’t matter what you look like. The more you know!

    (But did the Fry’s you were in have a “farty”smell? Every Fry’s I’ve ever been in has had that smell. Seriously.)

  281. Rich/Asspenny and BiW,

    Send me a shout out.

    I’ll be in Tukwila (at the Boeing facility) for the next few days.

    I have wheels.

  282. Nope, no farty smell, but I have Fry’s bias. I reeeeeeeeeeeeally like going in there.

    Well, I just learned a valuable lesson about not pre-judging people.

    totally, I thought they were gonna be smelly hippies, course spending the afternoon at the street festival I was just at could have helped the bias. Every other person there had dreadlocks and people were burning sage. I hate that smell.

    Oh and there was this guy there holding this GINORMOUS sign that said something like DON’T BURN IN HELL!! READ THE BIBLE!!!!!1

    he was getting mocked mercilessly

  283. I’ve bought my last two computers (including this one) at Fry’s stores, and I swear they have a nasty smell that’s common. It was there in the one in San Jose, too.

    They have good deals, tho.

  284. oh yeah, I got my memory for $27 and the hard drive I just installed for about $60.

  285. Whenever I have a bad case of gas, I like to visit Fry’s.

  286. We interrupt this Fry’s commercial while Sean goes to drink some beer and smoke some cigs.

    Meanwhile, enjoy this video of, um Fry…

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RsBOh6EszM

    (and Bender.)

  287. PJ, how much hard drive to you get for $60?

  288. 160 gb,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,it’s a pretty old machine

  289. Hey.

  290. And, I’m off to late mass

  291. you’re Catholic Americano?

  292. Not bad. I’ve got 80g on the laptop. I figure it’s enough, but for $60 bucks, I’ll have to think about it.

  293. You can upgrade your laptop?

  294. this is sweet! it’s sooo much faster. next paycheck, I’m upgrading the one I’m typing on right now.

    k, gotta go finish re-installing crud on the other computer, nighty night

  295. Dunno. Can’t be that hard.

  296. my laptop is not upgradeable. highly annoying

    I think cuz it’s all proprietary or sumpin like that

  297. Never tried to upgrade. If I did, I really need to upgrade the RAM more than the hard drive.

  298. Well, since no one else is here, I’m just gonna pull off my pants and scratch myself.

    **scratch, scratch, scratch**

    Much better.

  299. Laptops can be a pain to upgrade. There are sites dedicated to their parts, though. Can’t just buy off the shelf stuff a lot of times.

    Hard drives and memory can be easier if you get lucky.

  300. Just watched the new terminator — not bad.

  301. Just watched the new terminator felched a goat — not bad.

    FTFY

  302. Just caught the end of this. Incredibly stupid. But check out the featured user comment and laugh and laugh about Obama’s Executive Order about keeping terrorists detained indefinitely.

    Stupid hippies. Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?

  303. why is it I’ve never gotten to beat a hippie with a rubber hose, shoot one, or maybe jam bamboo under their fingernails?

  304. Ahhh, hippies. Is there anything they don’t know (apologies to Homer)

  305. Apologize harder.

  306. Sleep now.

  307. you’re not the boss of me.

  308. Last

    (til someone wakes up in, say, 20 minutes)

  309. MORNING!!!!

  310. I slept in today. Usually, I would have caught ‘cano.

  311. I read that poat, Sean. Commented and everything. I tells you, though, liberals have basically vaporized. They’re not upset at teh one, because they’re not following politics right now … yada yada yada.

  312. I get my puppy in (counting) ….3 or 4 days. I think I”m driving down again. To MO.

    Husband’s employee dealo isn’t going to work out.

    I have to figure out how I’m going to do this. I don’t think I can pick the puppy up on Thurdays-day DAY, so I’m going to have to get it Wednesday night and then find some place I can sleep with a puppy.

  313. PJM, I’ve found myself in political conversations with perfect strangers. Love it. I can’t have people talking politics w/o inserting myself into the conversation.

  314. Ok, one more comment of me talking to myself.

    My uncle called me yesterday on the way to his daughter’s house (my cousin) for dinner. Cousin’s husband is a RAGING lib. Was there in October and you should have heard him go on and on. Bush spent our way into debt and the environment, bla bla bla.

    Anyway, cousin is WELL off. They brag that their child had been on a plan more than 20 times before it was one year old. They just took a trip to Italy.

    Hello? Planes? Around the world? How much carbon is being spewed about for them alone.

    Drives me nuts.

    And, of course, they have all the goodies and toys. Boats. WTF?!

  315. Ok, I’m done with you losers. If you can’t accommodate the hours in which I’m available …

  316. Still? No one up?

    I can’t express my disappointment strongly enough.

  317. *opens door*

    *sees Car*in rocking back and forth in the corner, talking to herself*

    *runs away*

  318. Car in – I’ve been up for awhile. Just thought I’d check in before running off to the golf course.

    “Don’t know why you say Goodbye
    I say, Hello, Hello, Hello. . .”

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=99jVPJUeqr4

  319. Car in, I’m still up, though fading fast.

  320. Um, Car in. You’re cool and all. Very intriguing. But your previous threat of all period talk, all the time, perhaps is keeping the boys from jumping into a chat.

  321. Zeke getting smacked down!
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/vmaximus/3666191433/

    Hahahaha! That’s an awesome picture, Vmax. And the “shut your whore mouth” caption immeidately popped into my head as well.

  322. ‘cano, that is no idle threat, but it only comes to pass should I not get a red-head next Wednesday.

  323. ‘Morning, losers.

    Did you know that removing the old fuel lines from a car with a propane torch is a bad idea?

    http://tinyurl.com/lps462

    It is.

  324. Ready for some sweets? French toast-white wheat bread really squishy, banana/walnut/butter/ syrup heated slowly, vanilla added at end, poured lovingly over lightly browned toast, scrambled eggs,hash brown w/ rosemary sprinkle, blueberries,tang,coffee w/ hazelnut. YUM!
    WB=KA-BOOM!

  325. I’ll have what he’s having….

  326. Car/in, your commenting lonliness is understandable, but lil lady I linked you a song around 1am, so see you were being thought of, NOW SHUT UP!!

  327. I think with all this wonderful ooooey, gooey sugar, I shall be forgoing the afternoon nap.For a week.

  328. Heh. On the making Seals show, the guys needling a lagger on the run. He says, Look at my speedometer, it’s less than zero. HAHAHA GET YOU ASS IN GEAR!!!!

  329. Rosetta, you post the weirdest fucking shit ever.

    I admire that about you.

  330. I have just become aware that there is a video called 2 Girls 1 Finger that is supposed to be worse than 2 Girls 1 Cup.

    Someone please watch 2 Girls 1 Finger and then report back.

    Thank you in advance sick nice person.

  331. Rosetta, you post the weirdest fucking shit ever.

    It’s art, man.

  332. Yall do realize it is Sunday?

  333. SO?

  334. Billy Mays died this morning … age 50.

  335. Did he really? He just started his own show!

  336. A pool and watermelon are calling me so enjoy your Sunday all!

    Enjoy the pool and don’t get sunburned.
