  1. Such arrogance. He is such a spoiled twat.

  2. First, windowlickers.

  3. *gives Lipstick the finger*

  4. First, windowlickers.

    heh heh heh…….

    spoken like a true windowlicker

  5. ha ha ha ha …

    I’ve got one of those pictures up on my sidebar.

    Just to get Biw’s blood pressure up whenever he visits.

  6. *smirks*

  7. damn, this got on Ace’s sidebar fast.

  8. You know when you’ve got your feet up on the furniture? How you’re NOT REALLY DOING SHIT. Instead, you’re relaxing mentally and physically.

    There could be millions of these photos out there of Obama doing this.

  9. Ok, it’s runtime. Everyone meet me out front with your shoes on. We’re doing a in and easy 4 or 5 miles.

  10. There could be millions of these photos out there of Obama doing this.

    I’m sure he is in a perpetual state of mental relaxation. Toughest part of his job is learning how to say the really big words that TOTUS puts up for him.

    Wanta bet they are spelled phonetically for him?

  11. Quite possibly the best poat ever poated on this miserable piece of poat hosting.

    +52,759 armoires for Wiser!

  12. Wiser is en fuego.

  13. Word.

  14. Excellent and posted :)!

  15. You are clearly all racist homophobes.

  16. Also, Barry is a Stuttering Clusterfuck of Miserable Failure.

  17. Wiser, who made this poat for you?

  18. Such arrogance. He is such a spoiled twat.

    No ma’am.

    I know spoiled twats, and he, ma’am, is NO spoiled twat.

    More like roadkill that’s getting ripe.

    Just to get Biw’s blood pressure up whenever he visits.

    And it works.

  20. BTW, did Obama give a speech today? The Dow is crashing.

  21. He’s trying to sell us a bridge.

  22. Wiser, who made this poat for you?

  23. I.LOVE.THIS.POST.!!!!!!!!!!

    {{{{{hugs}}}}} and ♥♥♥♥♥ to Wiser.

    (Small confession – I put my feet up at home a LOT, and sometimes when I am out as well. But when your feet don’t touch the floor when you sit down, your legs get REALLY uncomfortable, really fast…..)

    (I’m only 5’0″ tall, for Heaven’s sake, and I have stumpy legs; my inseam is only about 26″)

  24. Wiser is en fuego.

    had a lot of time to think about poats while I wasn’t reading the latest diet and exercise updates.

  25. Also, Barry is a Stuttering Clusterfuck of Miserable Failure.

    Well, that certainly goes without saying. But I’m always glad to see it said.

  26. {{{{{hugs}}}}} and ♥♥♥♥♥ to Wiser.

    MMmmmmmM!

    my day is now perfect.

  27. buncha Kyles

    Fuck you too!

  28. BTW, I’m sad to say, Sarah Michelle Gellar’s new show is awful. Simply unwatchable.

  29. Speaking of diets, Teresa, our friend Enas/Mitchell is looking into going gluten free:

  30. You are clearly all racist homophobes.

    Please.

    One of my favorite bands of all time is Black Fag.

  31. I didn’t think I could hate someone to the level I hate The Stuttering Clusterfuck Of A Miserable Failure.

    Guess I was wrong, Thanks Toonces!

  32. Chief, did you not get my email that I had a miserable cold on Monday?

  33. Hotspur – Just saw it today. You missed out, I had cash that I dug out of my mattress.

  34. At the National Art Gallery in Dublin, a husband and wife were staring at a portrait. The painting depicted three black men totally naked sitting on a park bench. Two of the figures had black penises, but the one in the middle had a pink penis.

    The curator of the gallery realized that they were having trouble interpreting the painting and offered his assessment. He explained how the picture depicted the sexual emasculation of black men in a predominately white, patriarchal society. ‘In fact,’ he pointed out, ‘some critics believe that the pink penis also reflects the cultural and sociological oppression experienced by gay men in contemporary society.’

    After the curator left, an Irishman, approached the couple and said, ‘Would you like to know what the painting is really about?’ ‘Now why would you claim to be more of an expert than the curator of the gallery?’ asked the couple.

    ‘Because I’m the guy who painted it,’ he replied. ‘In actual fact there are no black men depicted at all. They’re just three Irish coal miners. The guy in the middle went home for lunch.’

  36. Hotspur – Just saw it today. You missed out, I had cash that I dug out of my mattress.

    Don’t use those silver certificates at the bar.

    They’re worth more than face value.

  37. Hey SCOAMF, this furniture is not from “Rent-a-Center”. I know that’s all he’d have if he were paid based on intelligence/abilities. This asshat would have had his 84″ flat screen repo’d a long time ago.

  38. Are we expecting a bunch of company now? ‘Cuz if so, we need to all go wash our mouths out with soap and not cuss while they’re here.

    Yeah, I’m lookin’ at you…..
    *does pointy thing at my eyes, then outward*

  39. Because I’m the guy who painted it,’ he replied. ‘In actual fact there are no black men depicted at all. They’re just three Irish coal miners. The guy in the middle went home for lunch.

    I fail to see how eating a ham sammich and drinking a glass of tea would cleanse his dong? What am I missing here?

  40. ‘Cuz if so, we need to all go wash our mouths out with soap and not cuss while they’re here.

    Theresa, let me be the first to say, “FUCK YOU and the horse you rode in on.”

  41. That whole Teresa without the h thing always fucks me up. There ought to be a goddamned rule about that maggoty assed shit.

  42. Heh, You can always tell when we get sidebar action at Ace’s.

    Moron swarm.

  43. PG – Hittin’ the bottle early today?

  44. BTW, I’m sad to say, Sarah Michelle Gellar’s new show is awful. Simply unwatchable.

    I honestly watched about 90 seconds of it. That was all I could stand.

  45. Chief, did you not get my email that I had a miserable cold hangover on Monday?

    fxt

  46. Great job, Wiserbud.

  47. The writing is terrible, and Sarah is just the wrong girl for it.

  48. just in case anyone’s interested, I’ve updated my previous poat with new (and I think better) pictures. Missed the funniest part of the Crasher Obama’s pose the first time around.

    https://thehostages.wordpress.com/2011/09/22/is-that-a-camera-ohai/

  49. Great job, Wiserbud.

    Thanks, crazy bear. 🙂

  50. Your heels are hurting my back, jackass.

  51. I don’t think I would properly express the horror of watching her “talk” to her twin.

    ga.

  52. The writing is terrible, and Sarah is just the wrong girl for it.

    but… but..but…. I thought all a show needed was a hawt chick and you were a fan?

    Sarah not hawt enough anymore?

  53. Car in – Drop me an email, woodja? Looking for some gift suggestions for my son the runner.

  54. Your heels are hurting my back, jackass.

    heh. I doubt Obama’s dainty little feet could actually cause any real harm….

  55. The WH needs ottomans.

  56. Crazy Bear – Jeff Ottomans?

  57. The WH needs ottomans.

    and midgets.

    Crazy Bear – Jeff Ottomans?

    Now we find out just how long osobucco has really been lurking…..

  58. MCPO, is H2 still an ottoman blog?

  59. Wiser – Imma start drinking early this evening. . . want me to hoist one for you?

  60. Hey, Jeff hasn’t updated in 2 years!

  61. THIS is who we’re supposed to be afraid of? Iran’s “Army” looks like contestants from “American Gladiators”…..

  62. Sarah is still fantastic. I’m *still* waiting for the restraining order to expire.

    But she’s miscast, and the writing is terrible. Further, the show was developed for CBS and its rather geriatric audience. Slotting it at CW is not doing it any favors.It’s doomed.

  63. Wiser – Imma start drinking early this evening. . . want me to hoist one for you?

    I was juuust thinking about breaking out the vodka……

    Good call, my friend.

    Sarah is still fantastic.

    *gack

  64. Hey, Jeff hasn’t updated in 2 years!

    Is it still talk like a pirate day?

    Arrr, matey, I’ll not be fixin’ ye supper for ye, ye scurvy dog…

  69. Wiser, this poat does not help Michelle’s children.

  70. I don’t cook. I’ll make you a drink. I have Makers Mark or Crown Black.

  71. I’m quickly falling in love with Oso.

  72. Wiser, this poat does not help Michelle’s children.

    What a coincidence…..

  73. Who is gonna fix me supper this evening?

    I will, but you have to get here before Rocketboy fills his plate. Penne alla vodka, garlic bread, and salad.

  74. I can testify for the record that Roamy’s penne alla vodka, et al. is fucking awesome.

  75. I’m quickly falling in love with Oso.

    uh oh….

    RUN, OSOLOCO!!! RUN!!!

    One of the suggested videos is Alvin Greene for President. Hahahahahahaha.

  81. I see boobs.

  82. Roamy just said Penne Heh heh heh…

  83. I am going to be packing furniture for at least two weeks straight. I picked up 3 large shipments today and I am filling a rental truck tomorrow with the largest job ever.

    Oye.

  84. Good job wiserbud.

    You acknowledge me! You really, really acknowledge me!!

  85. I just had a 40 proof Bloodymary… Oh look, Indians!

  86. I’ve got meatloaf, Chief. It’s weight watchers. Yummy.

    My dad hates it. But everyone else loves it.

  87. I’m going sober tonight. Who’s with ME?

  88. Juice from Home-grown ‘maters!

  89. ‘Effin Skeletoed tetotalers!

  90. I’d just like it noted that my first words to Oso were not “Nice shoes. Wanna fuck?”

  91. I have a feeling this will be a LOT better than many people initially believe:
    http://www.steelgetsreal.com/

    Seeing as my expectations are lower than Obama’s current polling numbers among, well, just about every demographic, you may be right……

  92. Possibly, the BEST POAT EVER!!

    Well done, Wiser man!

  93. You noticed her SHOES first, XBrad?

  94. Catman –
    1) solidarity with Sean – I mean, on a sporadic level 😉
    2) calories
    3) half-marathon is in a few weeks, so I’ve got to cut it back a bit.

    I had a glass last night and a few the night before. None tonight or tomorrow. Saturday will be a GO. LOL.

  95. I am going to be packing furniture for at least two weeks straight. I picked up 3 large shipments today and I am filling a rental truck tomorrow with the largest job ever.

    WOO HOO!!

  96. Better than monkey washing a cat?

  98. Possibly, the BEST POAT EVER!!

    Well done, Wiser man!

    YES!!!

    two in a row, baby……

  99. I never needed anyone.

  100. Think I’ll go to the dive bar and grab a beer and some grub.

  101. Walking into his favorite bar, Mike said to the bartender, “Pour me a stiff one. I just had another fight with the little woman.”

    “Oh yeah?” said Fred. “And how did this one end?”

    “When it was over,” Mike replied, “she came to me on her hands and knees.” …

    “Really?? Now that’s a switch! What did she say?”

    She said, “Come out from under that bed, you little chicken .”..

  102. How ’bout that stock market crash today!

  103. Any poat showing what an honest to goodness classless, pretending douche our President is, is a winner with me.

  104. Chief – you mean the ghetto bar? Are you still in AA?

  105. WOO HOO! ……..Absolutely.

    Big auction on Saturday too. When I get too tired to pack, I can run over there and pick up more stuff.

  106. Sorry ’bout Sean.. really! But, Virgin Marys? NO WAY!!! That’s just Tomato juice and very un-James Bond like

  107. If you put Rahm Emmanuel’s head on the monkey and Obama’s head on the cat, well, maybe we’ll talk.

  108. How ’bout that stock market crash today!

    Local news radio kept repeating the same woman saying that there was nothing in the news to account for this, it’s just people who are a little jittery.

    Yeeeeeah, that’s all it is. Bernacke didn’t predict another recession yesterday or anything. Honestly, it’s just one big mystery….

  109. When I get too tired to pack, I can run over there and pick up more stuff.

    *cough

    …..home all weekend….

    *cough

    🙂

  110. Car in – No. I made it home. I specifically used “dive bar” so as not to confuse it with the “ghetto bar”. Besides, I’ve never seen a black person in the dive bar.

  111. time to make dinner. bbl, weird people.

  112. Scott – See if they have a maple dining table and chairs at the auction. Needs to be 72″ inches with the leaf in.

  113. “*cough”

    Those daily trips start Monday.

  114. Guess their food did not meet Mo’shelle’s new, regime-approved, requirements.

    http://fwd4.me/0C6o

  115. Evening rebel scum.

    Excellent post Wiserdude.

  116. MCPO they only have one in this auction and its 81″.

  117. Scott – OUCH! Is that with the leaf in?

  118. Ghetto bar, jackholes and cute chicks.

  119. I’d just like it noted that my first words to Oso were not “Nice shoes. Wanna fuck?”

    Mare’s were.
    God, she’s such a whore.

  120. DD#3 was lamenting her coding class a couple of weeks ago.

    Today’s latest FB post?

    had a coding test today. totally kicked its a**

    She’s telling her friends how cool the programs she’s using are, and how much fun she’s having.

    \o/

  121. I am not sure MCPO, this is the only one they have
    http://www.liveauctioneers.com/item/9774174

  122. Carin, I’m sober with ya

  123. Wow, you’re lucky. She didn’t even notice my shoes.

  124. How ’bout that stock market crash today!

    AGAIN?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    How….wait for it…….

    …..unexpected.

  125. Scott – That’s gorgeous. In your view, what would that bring at auction?

  126. Car in, I’m always sober – count me in…..

  127. Here – This may be worth looking into. . .

    http://fwd4.me/0C6r

  128. Hate that, MCPO, my GF got rid of her 6′ dining room table a couple years ago. She practically gave it away at her yard sale. My mind was scrambling on how we could possibly save it and keep it, but we didn’t have anyplace for it.
    Such a shame.

    It was only blonde pine, but the wood was nice and clear and the finish was gorgeous.

  129. We’re a furniture blog now?

  130. *slips a chunk of ice down the back of xbrad’s shirt*

  131. Thanks, Humpy.

    BTW, how come we haven’t had a flame war post at Ace for a while?

  132. Get your damn feet off the Resolute Desk. That’s not just some piece of crap Ikea furniture, it’s a national treasure.

  133. No clue MCPO. Tune into the auction tomorrow, it starts at 2 PM I think. It’s free to sign in to live auctioneer and they don’t use your information to bother you.

    Oh and check your email.

  134. whoops, Saturday 2 PM

  135. “We’re a furniture blog now?” Better than being a shoe blog.

  136. Hi Honey! I’m home!!

  137. xBrad – Please find a large wooden dowel, go into a corner and fuck yourself. TYVM.

  138. Hey Cyn. BBF is in the can.

  139. Did I see you were pouring early today Chief? *bats lashes*

  140. BTW, how come we haven’t had a flame war post at Ace for a while?

    I can’t be certain to always have a big chunk of free time during the day to be in there contributing. Why didn’t you remind me of that last month, when the store was slow as molasses out of the freezer??

    Anyway, I have to be in there contributing, otherwise it just devolves into 500 dimwitted lemurs trying to fuck a football.

    *waves and blows kisses to all the AOSHQ lurkers in here right now*

  141. *high five’s MJ*

    Are we going to need chopsticks?

    Signed,
    Just Curious

  142. *pours 4 fingers of 18 y/o single malt*

    Cyn – You want an ice cube or two?

  143. So, it just turns into H2-Lite.

    I see…

  144. oooOOOooo Pretty Pour. Just one today MCPO. Smoooches.

  145. *plop*

    There you are, sweet thing.

  146. Why didn’t you remind me of that last month, when the store was slow as molasses out of the freezer??

    http://fwd4.me/0C6u

  147. Danka.

    Some days you are the fly. Some days you are the fly swatter.

  148. Hahahaha Cyn I thought the same thing about chopsticks

  149. I’m running an experiment today. I had a small serving of the chili for lunch to see if it’s what made me sick. 6.5 hours out, my tummy is upset, but that might just be hunger. No trots yet.

  150. Great minds Sohos. 🙂

  151. Oh goodness Leon why would you do that to yourself?

  152. SoHoS!!!!

    How are things?

  153. Are we going to need chopsticks?
    ———————————
    Nope. I’ve decided to go mainstream. BBFINO.

  154. BBFINO?

    Any hints?

  155. It’s always the outside food, Leon!

  156. ooooops. Sorry wiserbud. I suck. You should have pushed mine down.

  157. I ain’t into pigskin.

    I’m strictly a soccerball kind of lemur.

    Now get these flying monkeys away from me, willya?

  158. BBF in Name Only. Very bad play on the idea that everyone that doesn’t strictly adhere to their ideology is some sort of an INO.

    If I had any guts I’d be out there posting shy, giggling, giant boobed Japanese girls.

  159. I walk along the city streets you used to walk along with me. . .

    http://fwd4.me/0C6v

  160. I blame mare.

  161. Because otherwise I have to throw away $35 worth of food, and I want to see if laura’s right.

    Anyone see this? I got fucking pilloried on DPUD for saying “sometimes vaccines are dangerous”, not even for agreeing with Bachmann.

  162. http://mybadco.com/

  163. Leon, I’m very surprised at how people have become vaccination nazi’s in either direction. Good Lord. I vaccinated my kids, but on a different schedule than they recommended, but I don’t give a rat’s ass about whether anyone else does. Also, I am NOT giving my daughter the HPV vaccination because it’s too new. How many times has the government told us something was safe only to say later

    “ooops”
    like fen-fen and all sorts of other crap

  164. It’s only been approved since 2006. I’m not using my child as a guinea pig, thanks.

  165. I’m right there with you, Peej. I’m going to have them done, but my kids’ll be walking and talking when they get them.

  166. Neither am I, PJM.

    *gives PJM Mom-of-the-Year Award*

  167. Leon – Statistically, those cases are noise in the data stream, as you well know. Unfortunate for the individuals affected, but the public health is important enough to ignore them in the absence of further, compelling evidence.

  168. Out of 35 million people who were given the vaccine I would venture to say that a few shit themselves. Are the two related? Prolly just the chili.

    But of course I have no flippin’ idea what I’m talking about.

  169. My boys’ pediatrician was trying to talk me into getting the HPV shot for them.

    Agreed: too new.

  170. If the severe adverse reactions per dose outnumber the deaths per 100000 people, it’s a reasonable economic decision to forego the vaccine unless you have a strong expectation of getting the disease.

  171. If a woman actually goes to have PAP smears regularly, she won’t get cancer and die from warts.

    My kids would likely be the noise in the data stream.

    Leon, because my kids didn’t go to daycare and weren’t hanging with strangers all day long, I didn’t get them vaccinated till it was time for them to go to school. Then, they only got like 6 shots total. Period. I didn’t have to go back every 2-3 months. I was done.

    And Aggie, I appreciate that coming from you, especially since your hubby is a doctor.

  172. My boys’ pediatrician was trying to talk me into getting the HPV shot for them.

    Thank you, cyn. I think it’s even newer for the boys. Because when they first tried to give it to Madeleine they said it wasn’t available for boys and that it was urgent that I gave it to her before she was 12.

  173. That’s probably what we’ll do, PJ, unless we end up having to do some kind of public day care for the kids.

  174. Howdy MCPO!!! How the heck are ya?

  175. “According to the U.S. General Accounting Office, close to 51% of FDA-approved drugs have serious adverse effects not detected prior to approval”

  176. Polio, whooping cough, scarlet fever, hoof & mouth disease and rampant TB; I’m sure that there are many that will welcome the return of those scourges.

  177. I’ve never understood the hullabaloo about the HPV vaccine if those same people making all of the noise weren’t ALSO bleating about the Hepatitis B vaccine, since Hep B is ALSO a sexually-transmitted thing (almost exclusively).

    Of course, I also think that our kids are getting way too many vaccines these days, especially against things that they will probably never come in contact with.

    However, the “big” ones like DPT, Polio, MMR, etc., are necessary for herd immunity – as demonstrated by the not-insignificant outbreaks of some diseases long believed eradicated in the states after people crossed over the continental borders unchecked…..

  178. Hey Peej. Do you like Primus, by any chance? I thought I remembered you mentioning it once.

  179. Polio, whooping cough, scarlet fever, hoof & mouth disease and rampant TB; I’m sure that there are many that will welcome the return of those scourges.

    MCPO has bad listening ears. We all said we were getting our kids vaccinated.

    Yes, I LOVE Primus! Saw them in concert and it was one of THE most insane mosh pits I’ve ever experienced.

  180. SoHoS – I’m doing good. Other than being ruled by the fascists in Washington, watching the world financial system crumble and being beset by liberal jackanapes on all sides, things are peachy!

  181. Last I checked, hep B vax is only required for certain health care workers, and recommended for adults with certain hobbies/proclivities. Are there places requiring it for elementary school?

  182. I’m sure that there are many that will welcome the return of those scourges.

    That’s the problem, Chief – just how many people are alive today who even REMEMBER what those diseases look like?

    I don’t, and I’m 50!

    We have almost 2 entire generations of people who have NO CLUE what a disaster those diseases can be in the public arena; heck, diptheria causes lots of fatalities even today in the 3rd world, but it’s virtually unheard of in the US.

  183. Hep B vaccine is regularly given to military folks traveling to certain parts of the globe,

  184. leon, I tell them to give me only what’s legally required for school. The kids get WAY more vaccinations than we did as kids.

    I certainly didn’t get a chicken pox vaccine. I lived through chicken pox. My sister got it twice.

  185. Yes, I LOVE Primus! Saw them in concert and it was one of THE most insane mosh pits I’ve ever experienced.
    —————————–
    I thought so! Tomorrow’s post features a song from Primus.

  186. Yeah, those Thai hookers are known to carry the hep. Unfortunately, they are also breeding antibiotic-resistant gonorrhea.

    Not that you should ignore regular gonorrhea. Antibiotics can alter your gut flora for life in a single go-around.

  187. Tomorrow’s post features a song from Primus.

    YAY!!!

    I’m always amazed at the awesome good taste the hostages have in music.

    Oh hey, MJ made me think of Florida and speaking of Florida, the fucking tenants trashed our house. Hell, maybe I’ll upload pics to show you guys what dirtballs I’m dealing with.

  188. Well, my younger 3 daughters were vaccinated against Hep B back in 2001/2002 (I just looked up their records, because I was starting to doubt myself), and they had to have 3 shots to impart immunity.

    Unless that’s changed since then, I think kids are being vaccinated against it even today.

  189. I think half the stuff we give dogs to keep them healthy, is killing them.

    My next dog isn’t getting shots.

  190. Just looked at the records. Mine have Hep B as well, so it must be legally required for school.

  191. I had the hep B vaccine at 27, but I was dating sketchy women at the time, and they offered it to me free when I went for my AIDS test.

  192. I think half the stuff we give dogs to keep them healthy, is killing them.

    I honestly believe that sometimes. Like I’m sure PJD over vitamined himself.

  193. I think half the stuff we give dogs to keep them healthy, is killing them.

    If you count most commercial dog food, it’s a much higher percentage.

  194. I’m not having DD get the HPV vaccine either. Too new

  195. the fucking tenants trashed our house.
    ———————-
    Oh, that reminds me. We have a nice two bedroom 2 bath place for rent if anyone wants to move here. I will trade rent for midget porn and drugs. But mostly drugs.

  196. I’m not having DD get the HPV vaccine either. Too new

    See? thank you!

  197. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tjvL8IUJbM0#t=1m50s

  198. Reminds me of that old saying: “Redhead at night; sailor’s delight. Red rash in morning; sailor take warning.”

  199. I trashed that empty video count.

  200. My Mom’s dog died of cancer. The vet said “we don’t know what we are doing wrong”.

    Those pills that repel fleas and ticks? Heart worm pills? Pesticides.

  201. thanks cyn i think we both trashed it at the same time

  202. oh look… PJ’s here!

    guess it’s time for a new poat.

  203. The corn used in most dog food isn’t exactly good for them, either, and I’ve heard it’s not great shakes on pesticide content.

  204. I’d still get the rabies vaccine, Scott.

  205. So check out how our house in Florida was left.

    smaller curtain pic
  206. damn pj that sucks, at least you have all their personal info from the rental application. You can create a blog about how worhtless they are.

  207. or “worthless” your call

  208. Those pills that repel fleas and ticks? Heart worm pills? Pesticides.

    exactly! I hate using those because I can’t imagine what we’re doing to them

  209. *sends wiserbud to live with tenants because pushing his post down wasn’t enough

  210. This is why I said “no” when my wife asked if we should try renting out the AA house.

  211. come on cincy!

  212. Rabies is pretty rare.

    I just don’t buy it Leon. I haven’t had a tetanus booster shot since 1983. I have been bitten by dogs (one eats crap], stabbed, cut and pierced.

    I understand that some of the vaccines are important, but a bunch of them are not. What are the odds of getting tetanus? My guess is next to zero.

  213. Why would someone tear out the drywall ceiling in the garage?! It also appear that the carpet in every room has been totally trashed! Did your rental agent get references for these pigs?

  214. What are the odds of getting tetanus?

    Ok yeah, I will mention that Garren stepped on a little something as a 2 year old and we had to take him for a tetanus shot when these red streaks developed around his wound and he got a fever.

  215. I’m guessing they had stuff stored in the attack and they took out the drywall in order to simplify moving out.

    pj can i have that drumset

  216. count, I wish we could say we have their info, but we’re using a property management company.

    It just sucks because when WE rent places, we spend hours upon hours making sure the house looks better than when we moved in.

  217. I can’t believe you left the breadmaker behind.

    Lame.

  218. I’m imagining there’s an access to the attic, and someone fell through the ceiling? How the Hell else does that happen??

  219. if you have a property management company then you should have no worries. It appears to be a property management problem.

  220. I’m guessing they had stuff stored in the attack and they took out the drywall in order to simplify moving out.

    You know what REALLY irriates me about that? Me and the kids were at your house when PJD moved the rest of the stuff and he mentioned that there was stuff up there that he was too tired to grab.

    I miss that stuff! I WANT MY STUFF BACK!! I have NO idea what’s missing, but I know it was important. I can feel it, I’ve been w/out it for almost 3 years now and I can feel my life’s blood draining away from not having whatever it was.

  221. My last physical exam was 1979.

    How many shots have I missed?

  222. I can’t believe you left the breadmaker behind.

    Um, not me. They left all that crap. And apparently there is So much dog urine in there it ruined the wood floors and carpets.

    How the Hell else does that happen??

    That’s the only thing I can figure too. AND they stole my ceiling fans and the chandelier in Madeleine’s room.

  223. >> for a tetanus shot when these red streaks developed around his wound and he got a fever.

    Bet they bombed him with antibiotics too.

  224. PJM, that is gross what they did to your house.

  225. How many shots have I missed?

    Only the ones they weren’t able to sneak on your during your hospital stay.

  226. you should make PJD sleep on the couch for a couple nights then. basically it’s his fault. 🙂

  227. Sorry PJ. If it’s insured for fire let me know.

  228. I watched the first 60 seconds of the new Charlies Angels tonight. Already scratched that one off the list.

  229. I have a craving for chicken pot pie. I have no idea why.

  230. That fucker puts up his feet on the Resolute desk. I am sure they have some timbers leftover from HMS Resolute. They should gift this bastard with a giant dildo made from those timbers for Michelle to peg him with.

  231. People are fricken pigs.

  232. you know what you should do to PJD? You should withhold sex.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!!!!

  233. Bet they bombed him with antibiotics too.

    I can’t remember, but i imagine so. It was when we moved into our first house in Florida and he got a rusty old furniture tack from the garage embedded into his foot and didn’t even tell us. Something ain’t right with that boy because he doesn’t feel pain like other people, but I swear to God, if you look at him wrong, he’ll bawl his eyes out.

    Mare, it sucks. I was >< close to just moving back there to protect my house……but *sniffs haughtily
    seein's how I'm the manager of the snack bar, after only having worked there for 5 months and the other women have been there 4-17 years, I've got responsibilities. *

    *disclosure, this in no way reflects on any skills I have, the women I work with are just that stupid

  234. I’ll give you two bridges in every chicken pot pie.

  235. <i.I watched the first 60 seconds of the new Charlies Angels tonight. Already scratched that one off the list.

    *GASP*

    it’s teh suxxor fer realz??!?!?

    I’m shocked

  236. Sorry PJ. If it’s insured for fire let me know.

    Oooooh! hahahah, It sure is. You and MJ and vmax could have a bonfire.

    you know what you should do to PJD? You should withhold sex.

    so I’m supposed to hurt myself?

  237. >> but i imagine so

    I do too. That was a raging infection. The tetanus thing was precautionary.

  238. He puts his feet up everywhere which to me is a sign he’s relaxing. You know, because he’s not really working.

    And the picture where the guy is shaking his hand and he doesn’t at least sit up straight or stand up like he should SICKENS me.

  239. so I’m supposed to hurt myself?

    No, just don’t have sex with him…..

  240. Good property management companies are very hard to find.

    The renters we had who decided to stop paying in late Fall- making eviction procedures impossible until Spring? Who were exploiting Workman’s Comp with a phony injury? Who were so fucking lazy they didn’t want to bring their trash to the shed, so decided to start stockpiling all their garbage in the balcony porch so that I had to pay neighborhood people to help me excavate the reeking, maggoty 15′ x 12′ x 10′ solid mess months later?

    Property manager’s choice. Gave these people rave reviews. I looked at them and didn’t trust my gut, based on what the manager said.

    Never again. If I ever rent property, I will check the people out myself and be a visiting landlord. It has to be your job. It’s the only way.

    The people I interviewed and approved myself were always gems, even though I was basically a stupid green kid at the time.

  241. They should gift this bastard with a giant dildo made from those timbers for Michelle to peg him with.

    I love Tushar.

    He funny.

  242. I’ll give you two bridges in every chicken pot pie.

    eeeesh. I just got an image of dental bridges in the pot pie.

  243. And someone here suggested that I look for work in another state and just rent my home out…..

    HA!

    no fucking way. It NEVER ends well.

  244. It does if they are friends and good people, Wiser. My buddy Frank did just that with their Indiana house and they were fine.

  245. I do too. That was a raging infection. The tetanus thing was precautionary.

    Gotcha. So that means he didn’t have tetanus, just an infection.

  246. I love Tushar.

    He funny.

    It’s funnier if you imagine him saying it. Everything is funnier in his sweet accent.

  247. How many shots have I missed?
    ———————
    Spoken like a true hostage.

    *Slides shot of tequila across bar.

  248. I’d sooner go into foreclosure than take on renters in Ann Arbor. By city ordinance, they could refuse to pay rent for basically anything until I fixed whatever it was.

  249. I think tetanus is pretty rare, but it pretty much has a 100% mortality rate.

  250. wnba conference finals….who knew?

  251. It does if they are friends and good people, Wiser.

    I’ve known enough people, friends, family, business associates, who have all tried to be landlords.

    99 times out 100 it went bad.

    In the case of one person I know, it went really bad. “Kidnapping, attempted murder, felony charges, eventually being forced to leave the state for her own safety” bad

  252. My Dad had the same renters for 8 years. He had to gut the place and cost thousands to fix.

  253. It’s funnier if you imagine him saying it.

    zakly,

    imagine Apu saying the stuff Tushar writes and it takes on a whole new level of awesome.

  254. So that means he didn’t have tetanus, just an infection.

    either that or a toomah.

  255. Never again. If I ever rent property, I will check the people out myself and be a visiting landlord. It has to be your job. It’s the only way.

    I SO wish I’d had that option. The first fucking property management guy said that we had carpet in our living room and dining room areas. Luckily the tenants didn’t know that because I’m sure they’d find a way to screw that up. we had beautiful wood floors.

    light they stole over dining table

    light in dining area

    light they stole
    entryway light

  256. How’s the gut, Leon?

  257. 95 out of 100 statistics are made up on the spot

  258. Kidnapping, attempted murder, felony charges, eventually being forced to leave the state for her own safety” bad

    So that’s when you were the tenant?

  259. It’s not too hard to weed those people out in the interview process, Leon.
    They make demands up front. It’s hilarious. They think they are the boss.

    Then, when you’ve had your little talk, you shake their hands and say, “Okay, well we have a few more interviews to do, we’ll let you know,” and their faces go all “oh shit, I’m not the boss?”

    Priceless. Really, it is not a difficult process, except for the waiting around for no-shows. It’s a time-suck that way, but the weeding part is not hard at all.

  260. 95 out of 100 statistics are made up on the spot

    1/2 the time, that’s true 90% of the time.

  261. Funny!

    http://diehipster.wordpress.com/

  262. >> So that means he didn’t have tetanus.

    You know, it actually could have been, now that I think about it. Tetanus is bacterial too, and is also treated with antibiotics. The symptoms can show up in a couple weeks. It’s just that the vaccine makes it completely harmless to you.

  263. 1/2 accurate, 1/2 questionable, and 1/2 not good with fractions

  264. So that’s when you were the tenant?

    I was the perfect tenant.

    Only once did I wake up in bed with the landlord’s wife. And she really didn’t seem all that upset.

  265. Wiser, I don’t think people take enough time interviewing. They get two or three bites and make a decision because they are mindful that the place is costing them money while it’s empty. You can’t do that if you want someone who is going to be a keeper.

  266. 60% of the time, it works all the time.

  267. Being a landlord is a real chore. I had two couples rent for a year each, no problems. This time I’ve seen 7 or 10 people and they were all sketchy.

    ‘Can you rent month to month’ Um no.

    ‘I’m a little buzzed from happy hour. Is this a fun place to live?’ Um no.

  268. 1/2 accurate, 1/2 questionable, and 1/2 not good with fractions

    there are 10 kinds of people, those who understand binary numbers and those who don’t.

  269. How’s the gut, Leon?

    Almost back to bulletproof, but I’m babying it with bland foods. Which reminds me, time to have a little more butter.

  270. *begs laura to interview future tenants

  271. 2 out of 3. Not half bad.

  272. Bland aside from the chili for lunch, anyhow. Which — so far — appears to be innocent of everything but being mediocre in flavor.

  273. damn pj there’s something rather haunting about that video on there of the two methheads popping each others zits. thanksssss

  274. And she really didn’t seem all that upset.

    How did she feel when you woke up in bed with the landlord?

  275. You can’t do that if you want someone who is going to be a keeper.

    Yeah, I get that, if you have the ability to be a hands-on landlord. But in a situation like PJ’s, where you have someone else handling the management, what happened to her is almost guaranteed to happen.

    It;s not their property, so they do the least amount of work as possible. Meanwhile, the property is getting trashed.

    Meanwhile, if the owner is in another state, what can they do?

    Like I said, no way, no how would I rent out my home. I’d rather sell it for a loss and declare bankruptcy.

  276. Hah!

    Yeah, we’ve had tenants that just pester the Hell out of you. 3 am phone call ‘one of our closet doors is stuck and we have a guest from out of town who needs to put his luggage in there’ kind of pestering.

    Part of that was just that we lived there too so they knew we would roll on over and take care of it.

    Still that’s better than the people who don’t tell you there was a fire in the kitchen a month ago.

  277. damn pj there’s something rather haunting about that video on there of the two methheads popping each others zits.

    How dare you judge their love!

  278. Attention Sohos!

    Peron of Interest starts in 14 minutes on CBS.

    It’s the new JJ Abrahams show.

  279. How did she feel when you woke up in bed with the landlord?

    relieved.

  280. Person even.

  281. Yeah, basically it’s a good job if you’re retired and have a flexible schedule. Not so good as a part time job in most other situations.

    Our neighbor had two six-family buildings, was retired, and was there almost every day taking care of things. His buildings were quiet, he had some really good folk as tenants, and the place was clean and ran like a top.

  282. We completely repainted our place, replaced 2 doors and had to re-do the kitchen floors, countertops and sink after a 2 year rental or our place by the golf course. No need to even talk about the carpets.

  283. Still that’s better than the people who don’t tell you there was a fire in the kitchen

    SOHOS!!!!!!

  284. Peron of Interest starts in 14 minutes on CBS.

    Don’t cry for me, Indianapolis!!!

  285. relieved.

    Ah. So he was a great big fat man?

  286. Ah. So he was a great big fat man?

    define “big.”

  287. Still that’s better than the people who don’t tell you there was a fire in the kitchen a month ago.

    hahaha

    The first home PJD and I ever bought, was here in SoCal, it was two houses on one lot. Biggest pain the ass ever. She worked nights and would sleep all day. Her girls scribbled all over the walls in crayon (which is SUCH a pain to paint over) they punched through the screens and would climb in and out of the windows. They picked all the buds off my flowers (which REALLY irritated the hell out of me)

    She wound up meeting some guy on the internet that lived in a trailer in Oklahoma. I let her get out of her contract if she moved out within two weeks. I shudder to think what happened to those poor girls.

  288. CB I have it on CBS already waiting for it to come on and yes, I caught a kitchen on fire in a rental house

  289. Peron of Interest starts in 14 minutes on

    It does not..

    oh wait, you weren’t talking to me.

  290. define “big.”

    Did he keep a package of twinkies stashed under his left moob?

  291. Did he keep a package of twinkies stashed under his left moob?

    Not a entire package.

    It did make for a nice snack afterwards though

  292. Ok CB report back to compare notes on the new show

  293. NEW OFFICE!!!

    back in 30 minutes.

  294. STRANGER DANGER!!!

    Who the hell is Gary Johnson?

  295. Gary is our “legalize pot” former Gov of NM.

  296. Holy crap, I’m remembering lots of tenant stories from Hartford now. The stuff from our youth we store away, hm.

    Like this old ginny bastard named Joe. My grandmother was giving him shit from her porch about how he was stockpiling crap in his garage and she saw a rat crawl in there and he needs to clean the thing out.

    He retorted loudly and disrespectfully to her in Italian, “Oh go sew a dress,” and I came instantly out to the yard holding a broom the wrong way and looking him daggers. He hadn’t known I was there in the kitchen listening.

    He looked surprised and shut the fuck up.

    I used to be kind of sassy in my youth. What happened?

  297. Gary is our “legalize pot” former Gov of NM.

    So he’s competing at Huntsman’s level?

  298. Osoloco – Was there a plan to tax it along with the legalization?

  299. Why can’t I see anything in the chat window at the mothership?!

  300. I used to be kind of sassy in my youth. What happened?

    hahahaha, I’d hate to see your idea of mellow

  301. Gary is like a saner version of Ron Paul without the cult.

  302. Fire is clearly the answer.

    FIRE!

  303. MCPO, yes there was a plan to tax pot sales. He is more Libertarian than Republican. I had a PoliSci class with him. I wasn’t impressed.

  304. I’d never seen this pic before. yep, I can understand why the website hates the hipster douchebags so much

    http://diehipster.wordpress.com/2011/09/14/like-yah-i-like-survived-911-yah/#comments

  305. It’s probably because I don’t live in a city anymore. Suburban life is so much more tranquil. You don’t live cheek-by-jowl with dirtbags and assholes or feel pressed to defend yourself all the time or have to put up with gut-boiling bullshit from your neighbors.

    Actually, I have a story about going to the grocery store in an urban area near Wiser’s place recently, that reminded me how glad I am that I don’t live in an urban area anymore.

    Another day.

  306. Ann Arbor is as close to “living in the city” as I could stand. It was basically suburban life by most standards, I imagine.

  307. Fire is clearly the answer.

    FIRE!

    For some reason, I’m a little bit scared right now.

  308. I don not miss living in the city – at all. Crap, this tiny little town has too many people for my liking.

  309. Suburban life is so much more tranquil.

    I’m suburban I suppose, but rural suburban. Does that work? All the homes where I live are on at least a half acre and there’s nothing but weeds and dirt. (california is not very green if there’s no constant sprinkler system). You can have as many cars or trucks in your front yard as you want (my neighbor does, but there’s at least a 12 foot brick wall dividing our properties, I’m sure it’s illegal, but we don’t complain)
    but we have a superwalmart and a starbucks. I like having my chickens and watching people on horses go by.

  310. There are 18K people in my town. That is about 12K more than I need.

  311. Ha! Excellent post Richard.

    Well done.

    *sets MCPO on fire*

  312. “old ginny bastard named Joe”

    Heh. That right there is a keeper.

    Hey lauraw, we miss you over at ace’s joint. How come you and TusharD don’t hang out wit us no more?

    How’d the moron meet and greet go after the huricane / flood?

  313. Johnson is twitchy. I suspect I know the reason for his efforts at legalization.

  314. According to the website, Sumpter Twp has 9500 residents in about 37.5 sq miles. That’s not too crowded.

  315. “Actually, I have a story about going to the grocery store in an urban area near Wiser’s place recently, that reminded me how glad I am that I don’t live in an urban area anymore.”

    Aw come on… teasin’ about a good story ain’t cool…

  316. Gary is a triathlete and he climbed Everest after he was our Gov. Said the pot and the cocaine were no longer part of the healthy lifestyle he was living. New Mexicans don’t believe that either.

  317. Hey lauraw, we miss you over at ace’s joint. How come you and TusharD don’t hang out wit us no more?

    I think she’s prolly there now. 😉

  318. I can’t watch the debate, but the liveblog is confusing if I don’t.

  319. Santorum sounds like Dennis Miller

  320. There’s just no way possible for a Texas politician not to appear soft on immigration on a national level.

  321. I get it, count. I’m honestly past caring about immigration, and I used to be a total hawk about it. Romneycare/Obamacare is a bigger deal to me than the TX Dream Act.

  322. yeah i agree leon, and while i do disagree with perry on quite a few things regarding his record on immigration, I understand why he’s made those decisions. It’s just too easy for a sen. from Pennsylvania to take shots at Texan Gov. for decisions he’s made on Mexicans. If i were Santorum I’d probably focus on that as well though.

  323. Perry is tougher on immigration than Cali or NM. Securing the border is a Federal issue. Border states have to deal with the fall out.

  324. Santorum shouldn’t even be up there. He should replace Joe Scarborough on MSDNC.

  325. How’d the moron meet and greet go after the huricane / flood?

    Postponed until after the Holidays.

    Hey lauraw, we miss you over at ace’s joint. How come you and TusharD don’t hang out wit us no more?

    I hang out from time to time. Put up a post today, actually.

    Tushar has produced clones and doesn’t have the time or bail money to hang with us anymore.

  326. Also, Mexico is practically a failed state. I’m starting to see Bush’s point about guest workers and so forth. I’ll take 1000 farmhands if you’ll let me shoot the drug dealers and slavers.

  327. CB I thought it was great! They got me.

  328. GET YOUR FRICKEN FEET OF THE OVAL OFFICE FURNITURE!!!!!

  329. Everyone is off, riveted to the debate?

  330. Okay, The Office now totally sucks.

    And someone needs to beat the living shit out of the person who told Whitney Cummins she was hot.

    I mean, nice body, but once you see that head, all of her hotness disappears…..

  331. “Johnson is twitchy. I suspect I know the reason for…..”

    *another fucking rocket scientist*

  332. Nope.

    I was making dinner.

  333. Everyone is off, riveted to the debate?

    At this point, why? It;s a two person race and it’s gonna come down to who the media destroys less…..

    Being from CT, I lost interest in the primaries a long time ago. My choice will already be made for me by the time I get to vote.

  334. I’d nail Whitney, but she’s my type.

  335. I’d nail Whitney, but she’s my type.

    couldn’t look at that face…..

  336. Yeah, my primary is on Mar -1 (Feb 28). It’ll be One guy vs. Ron Paul by then. Newt will have dropped out and endorsed the wrong guy, and Gary will be sooooooooo high.

  337. Being from CT, I lost interest in the primaries a long time ago. My choice will already be made for me by the time I get to vote.

    Seconded.

    And let’s face it. If the nominee were Ron Paul, I’d pull the lever for him instead of the stuttering clusterfuck of a miserable failure we have now, even though I’d be punching myself in the dick until I cried while I did it.

  338. Can anybody tell me why Huntsman, Gingrich, Santorum, Paul, and some other motherfucker are on TV tonight?

  339. I’m following debate on Twitter. It’s interesting seeing people trash the biggest opponents of their favorites.

  340. Again, I’d vote for casu marzu with a clear conscience and bright, happy smile on my face if it polled well on Election Day Eve.

  341. Can anybody tell me why Huntsman, Gingrich, Santorum, Paul, and some other motherfucker are on TV tonight?

    Book and speech deals.

  342. And let’s face it. If the nominee were Ron Paul, I’d pull the lever for him instead of the stuttering clusterfuck of a miserable failure we have now, even though I’d be punching myself in the dick until I cried while I did it.

    ayup.

    Hell, I think I would even vote for *spit* Romney if I had to….

    I wouldn’t like it, but I would…

  343. Whitney who? I am so far behind in pop culture.

  344. “Can anybody tell me why Huntsman, Gingrich, Santorum, Paul, and some other motherfucker are on TV tonight?”

    their johnson was twitchy?

  345. Can anybody tell me why Huntsman, Gingrich, Santorum, Paul, and some other motherfucker are on TV tonight?

    Gilligan’s Island 2012?

  346. Newt should be Secretary of the Interior. The guy knows his history.

  347. Whitney who? I am so far behind in pop culture.

    Latest comedianne to get her own sitcom that will be gone in about 3 months.

  348. Who’s making me dessert?

  349. Hell, I think I would even vote for *spit* Romney if I had to….

    Heyheyhey!

    Let’s not go crazy here.

    Seriously, at least we’d have a guy who understands business from experience. And it isn’t like he’d make us all convert to Mormonism.

    And I think he knows if he doesn’t reverse Obamacare or at least negate it, its gonna make Joe Smith’s lynching at Nauvoo into a pillow fight.

  350. If Romney has good enough coattails to flip the Senate, and hard, then he starts to look pretty good.

  351. I just drank your dessert Xbrad. Sorry. Well, not really.

  352. And I think he knows if he doesn’t reverse Obamacare or at least negate it, its gonna make Joe Smith’s lynching at Nauvoo into a pillow fight.

    But I don’t think he cares.

    I think he just wants the office to put on his CV.

  353. Ok, I just GIS’s her and she’s gorgeous.

  354. Who’s making me dessert?

    arrr, ye’ll be making yer own dessert, ye scalliwag…..

  355. I’m watching episode 1 of her show mow.

    Sweet hiney. OMG.

  356. Ok, I just GIS’s her and she’s gorgeous.

    you obviously found a pre-anorexia picture.

  357. Why? Did she go Skeletor?

  358. <i.If Romney has good enough coattails to flip the Senate, and hard, then he starts to look pretty good.

    Romney is this cycle’s McCain.

    He gets the nom and we barely move a seat.

  359. I can look past Romneycare. The answer he gave was correct…its something for the states, not Fediathan to be playing with.

    The Mormonism doesn’t bother me, having been raised in one of the largest splinter groups.

    What bugs me is the vibe I get from him…he comes off like the square jawed quarterback who slept with everyone’s girlfriend in High School, makes difficult things look effortless, and thinks that it is “his turn”.

    But I’m just a freaking hostage-taking, domestic terrorist hobbit, so what do I know?

  360. Why? Did she go Skeletor?

    l’il bit. l’il bit.

  361. He’s more qualified than the block of cheese, so there’s that.

  362. She does look like she could use a cookie.

  363. Laura, since you’re alread doing GIS on Whitney, grab a dozen or so and email them to me.

    I’ll put her up for Load HEAT in a couple weeks.

  364. …and thinks that it is “his turn”.

    Bingo.

  365. I could care less about his religion.

    I hate that he refuses to recognize his mistake re: Romneycare. I also hate that he is extremely comfortable with things like insurance mandates to this day.

    I also cannot stand his easily malleable nature. Doesn’t come across as someone who will fight for what I believe in and, instead, would just go along to get along.

    That’s what got us to the point we are at today.

  366. Are we really going apple-picking in the rain this weekend? Can I bring fireworks? How about a chainsaw? Do you think the orchard stand people will stop me if I march by them carrying a chainsaw to go pick apples?

    *kicks self for not planting apple trees ten years ago like I wanted to*

  367. Didn’t see any body pics, xbrad, all face.

  368. Romney will say anything to get elected. I know most politicians are that way, but he’s a damn windsock.

  369. But everytime we look at someone who will fight, then the cry is “they are unelectable!”

    It makes me grit my teeth and bite my tongue. Hard

  370. Perry makes me feel all funny in my skirt.

  371. Do you think the orchard stand people will stop me if I march by them carrying a chainsaw to go pick apples?

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    That would be hilarious.

    We may have to put our apple-picking plans off a week.

    DAMMIT!!! I love fresh apples!!!

    Maybe we should get together and watch football instead.

  372. Windsock is a terrific analogy. Is that yours?

  373. *gives Romy the “primary debate”*

    Heyya, Rocketchick.

  374. Romney will say anything to get elected. I know most politicians are that way, but he’s a damn windsock.

    BINGO!

  375. I don’t want the next friggin guy in line!! Why do we always do this???????

  376. If he’s still in the race when MI comes up, I might vote Johnson just to send a message.

  377. “they are unelectable!”

    that is rather … infuriating, isn’t it?

  378. I told the Fabulous Mz. T that we would go pickin’ this weekend. But I don’t know if the weather will cooperate. If it doesn’t we can certainly make alternate plans.

    Good baking apples are probably ready now, we can make up some pie filling and freeze that.

    Some places have the fresh-eating Macouns ready now, some don’t.

  379. Perry makes me feel all funny in my skirt.

    That was my hand.

    Sorry.

  380. I don’t want the next friggin guy in line!! Why do we always do this???????

    Money men. Possibly from New York.

  381. If he’s still in the race when MI comes up, I might vote Johnson just to send a message.

    “Send more Twinkies and Doritos”?

  382. Somebody more sober than I name the last NE republican to get elected to office at the national leve. And the fact that the Bush’s were technically from Kennibunkport and shit don’t count.

  383. Just that I’d like to legally inebriate with something other than booze.

    Oh, and FairTax.

  384. Meh, thanks anyway, for looking, Laura. I’ve got a couple chicks lined up, but I figgered if I could snooker someone else into doing the work…why not?

  385. That was my hand.

    *tucks a Jackson in your pants*

    Don’t be sorry. I wasn’t.

  386. that is rather … infuriating, isn’t it?

    It took me a while to dial back to the point where I could calmly say to Karl Rove “How ’bout you let us pick, and you just use your vaunted skill and talent to make them the best candidate you can, m’kay?”

  387. NE = NorthEast…..not New Braska.

  388. I hate to be so deductive, but I don’t like Romney because he lost to McCain last time around. If he can’t beat McCain then I have this sneaky suspicion Obamasiah might be a little over reaching.

  389. Yo Count.

    Give us the latest update on the lower class specimen that you were forced to hire and fire at your small business. Love hearing about the underclass.

  390. Lauraw, Parker Griffith, former Congressman for this district was called that. Was Dem, switched to Repub, still didn’t get re-elected. I’m not a huge fan of Mo Brooks, but he’s not a windsock.

  391. That occurred to me too, count. He was the best of what was left last time, practically got the Rush endorsement, and he still didn’t beat McCain. On his own side…

  392. **hugs BiW

    How you doin’?

  393. *tucks a Jackson in your pants*

    Don’t be sorry. I wasn’t.

    That’s the first honest money I made all day.

    *considers career change*

  394. http://tinyurl.com/3uwlo3a

  395. Romney pisses me off because he’s always had a perfect answer for why he went with that health plan…

    “I was a Republican in Mass. It was RomneyCare or single-payer. Romney care was the lesser evil.”

    Defends his record, and yet doesn’t show stealth support for Obamacare.

  396. The Chicago Association Of Cemetary Residents For Progressives can all vote eighty-seventeen times this time around, and their boy is still gonna suck the pipe, no matter what godawful piece of shit we nominate.

  400. ha, pendejo
    I’ve been in a hiring slump just because I have turned into this “get off my lawn” business owner. Been just doing it myself for a bit till I feel like meeting another jake leg.
    I did have one of my old workers come in today wanting me to help him find a place to live. I had a client in the front office so he proceeded to go in the bathroom and take this giant shit and smell up the office for the second half of the day. It’s kinda weird. My front office is about 250 square feet with a bathroom in the corner. I can’t even count the number of times people have come in and asked if they can use the bathroom and gone in there and taken a shit and left.

  401. Cemetary….Cemeterey. Like any of us fucks would’ve noticed.

  402. Money men. Possibly from New York.

    ohhhh, I get it. *wink wink*

  403. I don’t think that’s a she. It looks like Don Rickles in a dress.

  404. Romney will say anything to get elected. I know most politicians are that way, but he’s a damn windsock.

    Aaaaand we have a winner!
    Somebody photoshop that for us, mkay?

    *pulls spare keyboard out of drawer to replace the one covered in Coke*
    Gettin’ kinda low in there – guess it’s time to order some more of those suckers…..

  405. Taking a shit is a civil right. I’m pretty sure it’s part of the Title XIII section of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Or something.

  406. Romney didn’t beat McCain even with Hugh Hewiit and Kathryn Jean Lopez swooning over him. Next!

  407. I think I’m out, I need to go to bed.

  408. **hugs BiW

    How you doin’?

    I’m not dead yet, but the day isn’t over, and the world could still hit the jackpot.

  409. I can’t even count the number of times people have come in and asked if they can use the bathroom and gone in there and taken a shit and left.

    The answer, is no. If they pull a slip n’ fall, you can’t defend yourself by saying it’s not a public bathroom. Because you let them use it.

    I’ve gotten some flak off some folks over this, but it’s a good policy. I only let the service people use the head.

  410. I don’t think that’s a she.

    Thanks for asking.

    And dont’ ever ask me to clean up my motherfucking language again due to cuntslingers and cocksmokers coming over from some other fucking Highbrow website. Or from Ace’s.

    I don’t know. Even though minitru will never report it, people have had the chance to experience pResident Zero’s Hope to be left with loose Change first hand.

    Romney never has to say the word “change” for people to understand he’d bring some for realz.

  416. Perry sucks at debating.

    I don’t think Gingrich is seriously running for president so much as he’s just being a foil against Obama and building his own brand name.

    Romney and Cain took home the gold.

    I think there were some other people on the stage.

    The end.

  417. Romney never has to say the word “change” for people to understand he’d bring some for realz.

  424. The answer, is no. If they pull a slip n’ fall, you can’t defend yourself by saying it’s not a public bathroom. Because you let them use it.

    I’ve gotten some flak off some folks over this, but it’s a good policy. I only let the service people use the head.

    Here in Washingtonistan, thanks to Queen Christine and the Dem legislature, we HAVE to let people use our restroom. I guess after treating our money like their money, the restroom was a minor leap.

    I wrote a post about it.

  425. Perry sucks at debating.

    But his hair. Did you see his fucking hair? I’d dork him in the squeeker based on his hair alone!!!!!

  439. I think Bella has found her forever home.
    I went on a home visit tonight (a beautiful 3 story house on the bay, easy 7 figures) They wanted another dog Whiskey. I politely asked if I could bring Bella, not wanting to dissuade them from the dog of their choice nor push a unwanted dog on them, I am just 10 min away and she is available.

    They are in LOVE with her! Remarkably she is in love with them! The look on Bella’s face as she luxuriated under the caresses of 3 girls and mom was a delight.
    She sat for them, she laid down, she rolled over, she shook hands with the 13yo the 12 yo and the 4yo. Much to the delight of all.

    It is times like these that make me glad to rescue Goldens!

  440. PG – you’ll have your answer to that question when that first lightning strike hits ya…..

  441. I was showing the new kid at the music store how to do something on the computer the other day when suddenly this horrendous smell hit me.

    He looks at me and says “hey, I gotta hit the men’s room, k?”

    I said “Yeah, I figured.”

    He stunk the place up something fierce. Had to open the front and back doors to try and air the place out.

    Who does that?

    In other news, Sugarsnap pea seeds + inoculant coming your way next week. Prepare your beds and trellis! They like a large, loose wire and will climb to 8 feet or so. I have a six-foot fence and just top it with long well-branched sticks, stuck firmly in the top of the fence.

    No worries. Just try to balance the additional fat out by increasing your protein intake.

  517. Sohos, I thought Person of Interest was quite good – a keeper for sure.

  518. I hardly ever have an Adobe update. Maybe because I have the full software and not just the reader??

  519. Jewstin, great minds think alike. Then there’s us.

  520. Do people grow sugarsnaps in Winter where you are?

    what is this “winter” you speak of?

  521. . . . and the horse you rode in on!

  522. Great. I downloaded PoI, Charlie’s Angels, and… oh, yeah, season premiere of The Mentalist.

  523. you may be right, it’s been 30 years since I saw an A-1 (they retired the last ones while i was in the Navy) but at the time I remember them saying that the advantage it had was it had an incredibly high lift capacity so it could carry huge ordinance loads and that also gave it the ability to fly very low and slow for ground support missions. Seems like a good trade off.

  524. A-1s did the kick ass mission in Vietnam, like A-10s did years later.

    Fuckin bomb platform, low and slow where the grunts liked it.

  525. The Air Force doesn’t want to do ground support. They want mustaches, silk scarves and Sierra Hotel Go-fasts.

  526. It was a fine plane, but they were out of the Navy before you joined.

    Heck, the were obselete when I was born. My dad had just transitioned from A-1s to A-6s when I was born.

    Great plane for its time.

  527. what he said.

    F-16s? GS? fuck that shit.

  528. They want mustaches, silk scarves and Sierra Hotel Go-fasts.

    So all the trappings of a 70’s porn film

  529. It was a fine plane, but they were out of the Navy before you joined

    Ah not true, grasshopper. I distincly remember watching them last flyby on AFRTS when I was on Okinawa. It may have been a rserve squadron however.

  530. PG, I can answer your question about why there are other candidates on the stage besides Romney and Perry.

    Not everyone believes what the “professional pundits” say about who the candidate will be.

    Regardless of current “educated opinion” it is a race that is far from decided.

  531. OK, last Skyraiders retired in 1985 but it was the Gabonese Air Force not the USAF that had them at that time. Since I was on Okinawa in 85 / 86 that matches.

  532. Uh, oh. Cover song. Where’s Wiser?

  533. Wakey wakey!

  534. I didn’t /don’t do chicken pox or HPV for my kids.

    and I did the other stuff on a different schedule. No one bothered me about it.

    shingles are going around the high school now. when does that happen? That kids get shingles?

    I’m guess ever since they didn’t get the REAL pox as kids. THey should just let kids get the dang chicken pox. stupid, if you ask me.

  535. Regarding Peej’s house – I wonder if they just broke those lights. I mean, they left so much behind, why would they steal stuff? They look like they’re just weren’t very responsible people. Breaking and not fixing /replacing seems a tad more likely.

    It’s a running thing. It reduces the friction with my socks.

  543. Shingles at high school says to me that just enough people got the chicken pox vaccine to avoid that disease, then the rest picked up shingles later. I knew a couple of gals with psoriasis while they were in junior college, but I blame the culture of “OMGdon’tletthesuntouchyou!” for that.

  546. Looks like my chili is innocent after all. I’m not sure I’m crazy about the peppers I put in it this go-around, but it isn’t making me sick.

  547. I think you’re wrong, Leon. i think shingles is raging because so many kids got the chix pox vacc that didn’t really protect them. I believe the getting the REAL pox helps protect you from shingles – and apparently my supposition has some support:

    New research published in the International Journal of Toxicology (IJT) by Gary S. Goldman, Ph.D., reveals high rates of shingles (herpes zoster) in Americans since the government’s 1995 recommendation that all children receive chicken pox vaccine.

    Goldman’s research supports that shingles, which results in three times as many deaths and five times the number of hospitalizations as chicken pox, is suppressed naturally by occasional contact with chicken pox.

    and more

    Dr. Goldman’s findings have corroborated other independent researchers who estimate that if chickenpox were to be nearly eradicated by vaccination, the higher number of shingles cases could continue in the U.S. for up to 50 years; and that while death rates from chickenpox are already very low, any deaths prevented by vaccination will be offset by deaths from increasing shingles disease.

    If these kids had just gotten the pox, many would be immune to shingles – a WORSE disease.

  548. Looks like my chili is innocent after all. I’m not sure I’m crazy about the peppers I put in it this go-around, but it isn’t making me sick.

    Well, looks like the BarbedWire and Tactical MineField stay put around the KittyLitterBox for another week…

  549. Why did your chili cost $35?

  550. Dangit!! Ms. C ari n, all this time, I thought you got Shingles from Roofies…

    ***Kicks Xbrad in the ShinBone***

  551. You’re probably right, Car in. Chicken pox is so rarely fatal I can see skipping the vaccine for it, especially if it means you can avoid shingles, but what if none of the other kids get chicken pox to give it to your kid?

  552. You know I read that a bit wrong. It said that when adults are around kids with pox, they build up their immunity. The occasional interaction with the disease boosts your immunity and since kids don’t get it anymore, we now need to take the shingles booster.

    we’re just fucking around with stuff we shouldn’t IMHO. The pox vacc doesn’t last a lifetime and they think that you need to have it redone every 6 years. That’s at $200 a pop.

    People won’t do it.

  553. Leon I have psoriasis. It sucks

  554. Why did your chili cost $35?

    Have you priced Antidotes lately???

  555. The ingredient list for the chili started with 6 lb of grass-fed chuck roast. Not cheap stuff. Best price I can find is $5.50/lb.

  556. Off to MouseHunt…

  557. I wish my kids had gotten it as children. As adults it is much more dangerous – and even with the vac unless you booster you can still get it.

    As I said, at $200 a pop – would I really spend $1000 to vacc my kids right now? that sounds horrible, because of course I want them safe. I may consider getting my son’s vaccinated, because it is they who more at risk with complications.

  558. $200 a pop. Isn’t that a tad pricey? Honestly. Right there is an example of how outrageous the price of shit is.

  559. Car in, you can’t get Shingles unless you have had Chicken Pox. After the initial infection with Chicken Pox the Varicella virus resides in the nerve cell tissue. Shingles is a resurgence of that residual virus. The initial infection may have been sub-clinical but it is necessary for Shingles to occur later.

  560. You guys noticed they changed the wordpress toolbar up there AGAIN.

  561. Yeah, $1000 isn’t chump change. I get two bills that size every year for car insurance, but I’m a lot more likely to have a car accident than shingles.

  562. Yea, I re-read and realized that.

    So – it’s just weird because it is my understanding that my kids are in the minority for passing on the pox vacc (it’s one of those manditory school ones now) – so I don’t understand how they’re having an outbreak if all the kids supposedly received the pox vacc.

    Of course, don’t most vacc give you a little bit of the disease in order to get the immunity? Is it possible that the vacc could cause the variciella virus to exist in the nerve cell issue that opening them to shingles later?

  563. I should point out here that every vaccine requires boosters. Even the Smallpox vaccine needed a booster every 10 years when the military was giving it.

  564. Car in, it could be weakened immune systems in general from the antiseptic environments and awful, awful diet most kids have.

    Hot Pockets and Pop Tarts do not forge a strong immune system.

  565. I can think of a couple reasons why there would be a Shingles outbreak, 1) A lot of parents opt out of the vaccine and have their kids purposefully catch chicken pox. (a lot is relative here but it happens) then those kids become reservoirs of the virus. 2) The kids got exposed before they were vaccinated. Not sure what age kids get the vaccine.

  566. I don’t get the big deal. I had the pox – I had about four of ’em in total.

  567. Okay, done with Wednesday’s Red Eye (with John Effin’ Bolton). Time for work.

  568. All the drugstores around here have signs up announcing pox and shingles vacc.

    $200 a pop.

    I don’t see a line out the door.

  569. I am lucky Leon b/c my psoriasis is only on scalp and ears and b/c I have had one suspect skin cancer place removed my Dermatologist won’t let me use sun therapy. I am (mostly) able to control it with non-steroid cream.

  570. Shingles suck; I had them earlier this year. It’s not fun, took a huge toll on my family and my work, and I will now have to visit an ophthalmologist for the rest of my life because they got into my eye.

    Let your kids get chicken pox. We parents need to rebel against this vaccination.

    I’ve half considered the theory that the pox vaccine was ordered by the Dept of Education to help keep up the attendance rates in schools.

  571. Morning Cyn.

    Shingles bad. Palin glasses good.

  572. Smooooches MJ.

    We may need to launch bewbs early or thow up a new poat. This one is getting rather long in the tooth.

  573. Cyn, didn’t you get shingles from having chicken pox? Wouldn’t it have been better not to have chicken pox?

    I don’t know a thing about this just curious.

  574. Cyn I hated when you were going through that

  575. “Car in, you can’t get Shingles unless you have had Chicken Pox. After the initial infection with Chicken Pox the Varicella virus resides in the nerve cell tissue. Shingles is a resurgence of that residual virus. The initial infection may have been sub-clinical but it is necessary for Shingles to occur later.”

    That’s what I thought.

  576. That didn’t take long.

  577. I had CP as a kid, not a terrible case. Both my girls had a rough time with it, but that’s long past and they don’t remember much about it. My doc offered me a shingles vaccine this year and I think I’m gonna take it.

  578. I have BBF set for noon. I’ll put up something craptastic for now.

  579. When are you supposed to get the booster for the chicken pox vaccine?

  580. Mare, you whore, why are you stirring things up .

    😉

  581. I don’t know if they know for sure. I heard at one point they thought every six years.

  582. I had the CP as a kid. The entire block had it so we had / kids piled up at my Mom’s house during the day that week. DD didn’t get it they vaccinated her against it when she was young. Shingles is the Debil. I will probably get MY shots for that.

  583. My kids had the vaccine, I better get them boosters. I don’t remember the initial vaccine being expensive.

  584. This poat is slower than my mile time.

  585. New Post!!!

  586. Wouldn’t it have been better not to have chicken pox?

    From my research Mare, it seems better to get the pox than shingles.
    I’d always known shingles as an old-person’s disease, appearing in folks in their 70s and 80s.

    I read a very good article in the midst of my outbreak that theorized that people younger and younger (40s and 50s) are getting shingles because they no longer receive that ‘exposure boost’ when kids and grandkids get the pox. In fact, earlier this year, they lowered the suggested age for the shingles shot to age 50. I haven’t decided whether to get it or not.

    The other interesting thing I found in my reading was that, while shingles is supposed to be like the pox in that once you get it you’re not likely to get it again, many many people deal with shingles reoccurrences. Oh yay.

  587. I love to see this intelligent and strong man get so much hate form moronic neanderthal whites. As a chinese man, I realize how pathetically provincial and useless most whites are.
