  1. foist or nutts

  2. that house with the hole in it is in Houston

  3. Mare, you can kick me in the poon, but that Hoers picture kills me to death. I can’t stop laughing at it.

  4. Mitt brought his game face tonight

  5. Jew, my store has been shut down twice in the past year by suicidal squirrels.

  6. I like the part where Captain Call lets Newt have the Hell bitch.

  7. Sooooo, Jew needs an ass kicking?

  8. this chick bitching and moaning about the lack of U.S. trade with mexico obviously hasn’t heard of fast and furious.

  9. Oso, my cousins can be an unruly bunch. Are they the red ones or the grey ones?

  10. Red squirrels are the fucking devil.

  11. American Idol is in Galveston tonight. I didn’t even know

  12. lol spelilng.

  13. Jew, the dead ones.

  14. Crap, I started drinking too early. Debate fail

  15. Newt needs to tap the breaks on the demonizing by way of stock ownership and somehow attaching every decision a company makes to mitt morally

  16. Howdy Sean!

    I did yell at a convict picking up trash today.

  17. http://bit.ly/yqoRZe

  18. Aggie, my hubby always asks which of the orange dressed convicts are Relativos. Did I say he was an ass?

  19. Did anybody burn anybody else in effigy today?

  20. Did I say he was an ass?

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!

    No, Sean…I ran out of gasoline.

  21. Concrete buffer video at the top of IB right now cracked me up pretty good. Reminds me of the time I saw on the news a car running in circles with no driver.

  22. Gamed of Thrones Season 2 (Clash of Kings) starts on 2 April!!

  23. Oh awesome mcpo!!!

  24. Awesome video, laura.

    Sorry to hear about the fuel shortage, Aggs.

  25. Not as sorry as I am, Sean.

  26. I saw a story on the local news this evening about how some woman in Glendale thought she was getting on the freeway but actually drove her Mercedes into a flood control channel, where she went thudding down six or seven huge concrete steps at 60 mph or so before coming to a stop.

    Amazingly, in this day and age, nobody was there with a camera to catch it as it happened. :(

  27. Sean, the day I fell and slid across two lanes of ice, I really expected to be on youtube. I was more shocked by people asking if I was ok. I’m surprised no one captured Ms Glendale either.

  28. In related news another blond chick was seen kayaking on I5.

  29. Another debate, another cocktail.

  30. Who’s winning?

  31. So far, I am.

  32. Actually, I just sat down and turned it on, Beasn.

  33. Beasn, Evan Williams.

  34. Never heard of ‘em.

  35. When I casually drop into the H2, is anything supposed to make sense?

    Didn’t think so.

  36. It would be nonsensical if it did, Mare.

    And would someone tell me please who the hell thought it was a good idea to kill off Shatner from the priceline commercials?!? Not the Shat!!

  37. Santorum is looking feistier.

    He bloodied Romney.

  38. Beasn, Evan is for people too cheap to drink Crown or Jameson. Me.

  39. That was fun to watch, Scott

  40. When I casually drop into the H2, is anything supposed to make sense?

    In a word, plaid.

  41. Yes, plaid, THAT makes sense to me.

  42. agree scott
    I’d say if anyone “won” this debate it was santorum. Newt needed to knock it out of the park again his numbers have already slid. He didn’t. I think they’ve all had enough time to figure out how to deal with newt.

  43. When I casually drop into the H2, is anything supposed to make sense?

    Only if you happen to catch the crew discussing weather, cooking/recipes/diet, sex toys, the hygenic needs of a pig’s ass, or exercise routines.

  44. hey aaaaaggggggggggie

    usted es muy caliente como una pizza del infierno

  45. Hi, PG. *waves*

  46. *reads WP’s comment*

    *knows Osita is laughing*

    I’m still laughing at the infernal pizza :D

  47. *grabs clipboard off the wall, scans quickly*

    WAIT JUST A MINUTE! Sex toys were NOT on the discussion list for today!

    *taps finger on clipboard, flips to the next page, reads*

    Hmmm, yeah; here it is. Okay. Well then. Carry on.

  48. usted fijó de alarma de incendio

  49. oh god i love bablefish

  50. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

  51. Hmmm, yeah; here it is. Okay. Well then. Carry on.

    gracias por permitirme al tonto en usted

  53. I had a job interview today. For a Chef position.
    Fail. But he likes me and will keep me on file.
    I am thinking of Carrabas next.

  54. Vmax, I pray you get hired soon.

    WP, it’s a very nice effort :)

  55. aggie, i sound like a bad commercial for Taco Tico

  56. Thanks Aggs

  57. Okay, I gots a meeting in a few. You kids try not to poke each other in the eye until I get back.

  58. Sean and his rules…

    Maybe, WP, but it was still pretty cool :)

  59. usted fijó de alarma de incendio

    Eso no es una alarma de incendio, es su madre en el telefono!

  60. **waves back at oso**

    **scratches junk absentmindedly with other hand…..hopes she was NOT paying attention**

  61. Was CNN reasonably fair tonight?

    Did I miss something?

  62. Good luck, Vman

  63. tu madre con huevos

  64. EM! DYSI ?!

  65. usted sabe que estoy censurando lo que digo aquí no quiera que Sr. aggie rompiera mi asno en dos

  66. Fingers crossed Vman!
    ____________________

    Yeah, Scott, I didn’t think it was horribly unpleasant.

  67. Did I miss something?
    —————————-
    A lot of the questions were related directly to Florida. And a lot had no bearing on anything.

  68. English, Mother Fletcher! Do You Support Immigration?

  69. Good night, tickle fighters.

  70. es su madre en el telefono!

    Holy shit! She did call me!

  71. You guys are making me miss Raúl.

    SIGH.

  72. frickin sock.

  73. Laura – I’ve asked you not to refer to me as Raúl on the blog!

  74. Reminded me that I need to get to Walmart.

  75. sorry web 2 abuse here, i apologize

  76. For what, WP??

  77. SHHHHH!
    Dangit sweetie.

    I can’t miss you if you won’t shut up, you know.

  78. I refuse to speak Spanish. When I do, I speak with an exaggerated Tex Mex accent that pisses mi familia off. I also refuse to wear an “Hablo Espanol” name tag at work. I’m an American.

  79. Sweet dreams MJ

  80. HOLA, COMO ESTAN, BEETCHES!

  81. laura are you indicting one of us?

  82. HOLA, COMO ESTAN, BEETCHES!

    That better come with port wine cheese ball.

  83. Oso-baby, i just like messing with people, i happen to like hispanic culture like marachi music and topless 15 YO chichi girls

  84. 15?

  85. Howdy, everyone!

  86. I used to work in a department at an insurance company that was partnered with a large national association that would advertise these product offerings in different markets around the country.

    Occasionally I would field a call from PR and the person would ask in English for a Spanish speaking person. We didn’t have any in the department. Then I would get bitched at- in English- for not having any bilinguals available. They were OUTRAGED. I’m sure in PR bilingue (to English) is a common protocol, but it’s not like every single company they deal with stateside can possibly staff an interpreter just for them. Always blew my mind when that happened.

  87. I really need to make a blog entitled ‘Things My Dad Says’. One conversation could cover about three posts.

  88. >> That better come with port wine cheese ball.

    I looked it up. Basically they soften the cheese with heat and mix in the wine, then refrigeramate in a form.

  89. Chicken marsala on rice for dinner.

  90. scotty, MY very BAD

    18
    i repeat 18! lousy damn keyboard

  91. we had chicken mash taters and bisquits

  92. WP refuses to admit he wasn’t using the num-pad to type that number.

  93. Scott, Quincinera means a girl is ready for marriage or whatever. Lauraw, when NM became a state, our state constitution kept Spanish as an official language. It is a d-bag thing that we do to remind the rest of America that we are a conquered not assimilated people.

  94. well i concider you ASSimulated oso-baby

  95. frigging Dragon Dictate Revvy

  96. I used to love those cheese things when I was a kid.
    Haven’t tried one in ages.
    Think if I made one I would use a good sherry instead of port.

    (Julia Childs voice)
    Everything’s better with a little sherry! *hic

  97. Howdy, Brad!!

  98. topless quinceinaras

    why didn’t I think of this earlier…..I’m gonna be rich.

  99. Who lives in a pineapple under the sea?
    “Spongebob Squarepants”
    Absorbant and yellow and porous is he
    “Spongebob Squarepants”
    If nautical nonsense be something you wish
    “Spongebob Squarepants”
    Then drop on the deck and flop like a fish!
    “Spongebob Squarepants”

  100. It is a d-bag thing that we do to remind the rest of America that we are a conquered not assimilated people.

    Huh.
    I mean, OH wow yeah, that’s totally a wicked good burn on the rest of the country.

    *thinks about cheese some more*

  101. what the hell did i create here?

  102. WP, no one ever uses Ass and Oso in the same sentence. Ever. I am proof positive that all the exercise in the world won’t create a butt that doesn’t exist. Skin over bone.

  103. Hm…chicken marsala….haven’t made that in a while.

    *jots down for tomorrow’s menu*

  104. AGGIE!

    Did anyone in your household receive a promotion today?

  105. My Dad was just expounding to me how when we start to go into space the government NEEDS to have a hand in it.

    Because we’ll need Space SEALS to deal with the space pirates.

    I am not paraphrasing even a little.

  106. I had a a bagel for breakfast/lunch and a whopper for lunch /dinner
    I am hungry now. I should go to bed now. Or pop popcorn.

  107. mis apologías mi estimado amigo

  108. Did anyone in your household receive a promotion today?

    Since you ask…YES!!

    Eldest was made XO :P

  109. Lauraw, it is tiresome to live in a place that is older than Plymouth Rock, had the first Thanksgiving that NO ONE heard of, and teaches that the white man stole the land grants from Hispanics in a class full of Indians (feather) and never get the irony.

  110. revvy i like your dad already!

  111. My mom HATED Julia Childs. She said it was gross how she would put her hands all over the food, dip her finger into something to taste it, and seemingly never wash between steps.
    I remember seeing Julia drop a piece of food on the floor, pick it up and continue on cheerily like nothing had happened. She was a crackup.

  112. XO? Really, as a junior? Is that for the whole detachment? Most excellent.

  113. Congrats, Aggie Eldest!

  114. WP – he shows up on here occasionally. Keep an eye out for a Harcourt Fenton Mudd avi.

  115. Lauraw, I may have had to compulsively wash my hands reading about Julia Childs. Some gagging took place.

  116. well I myself draw the line at bleeding on dinner.

    that ain’t right.

  117. I don’t get it Oso, Is Quincinera and chichi somehow related?

    I don’t get along well with foreign language.

    I get frustrated at restaurants if they use too many French or Spanish words on the menu.

  118. So is the primary over as of tonight? (I didn’t watch the debate, so I don’t know what happened)

    Is Mittens the new robotic overlord of the Republican party, or do we live to fight another day?

  119. Why do I suspect Dave may have bled on dinner more than once?

  120. Scott, all you need to be able to say in any country, to be functionally literate is:

    1. I would like a beer.

    2. I want to order a steak.

    3. Where is the men’s room?

  121. Scott, Quincenera is a celebration of a girl turning 15 and becoming legal. Chi chi is slang for boob. Unfortunately in the Hispanic culture, old enough to bleed=old enough to breed. Lots of sex registries are full of undocumented Mexicans that don’t understand statutory rape laws

  122. That was my take Teresa.

    I also saw somewhere that several of the upcoming primary states are Mitt friendly, among them Utah and Michigan.

    Newt needed a really big night, and from what I saw he didn’t have it.

  123. Yo Querio Cervesa
    Beefsteak
    Donde esta el banyo

  124. Yes, Brad, for the whole detachment. She was very excited when she found out at the meeting this morning.

    Oh, and the detachment is about 120 kids.

  125. Oso, her show was wonderful! I learned a lot from her as a kid.

    Presumably she just had to keep going while the camera was rolling. It didn’t matter anyway, not like the people in the home audience were going to have to eat it.

  126. I liked watching Justin Wilson do pretty much the same bit, with an accent.

  127. Vmax and Dave, I learned enough Chinese and German for the same thing. Taxi directions and bar requests.

  128. Vmax can survive in any Spanish speaking nation.

    *hats off to you sir

  129. jesus Xtrist what in heavens name have i done, a simple joke and its moritorium on morals and international law

  130. I was talking about restaurants in this country.

    It usually goes like this

    - Laura what does this word mean?
    - How about this one?
    - And this one?

    * throws menu *

    - Order me something.

  131. oso, when I was in Taiwan, I learned all you had to do to ask for the check was open your palm and move your finger over it like you were writing.

    Nee how ma! Shai shai.

  132. Aggie, that’s fantastic. Congrats to her. You must be proud enough to bust a button!

  133. Lauraw, she was always so tall. I loved reading about her actual story. I couldn’t watch her. I can’t watch most people touch raw food. I have issues. LOL

  134. congrats to Aggie punkin!

    >> – Order me something.

    Scott, in Texas, menus are in English.

    Just sayin

  135. DiT, Wo how shai shai ni hau. I never speak Chinese in restaurants either. LOL

  136. When I’m in Florida, I pretend to be Canadian so I don’t have to tip.

  137. You must be proud enough to bust a button!

    I did ;)

  138. jabba!

    Dave is full.

  139. I liked Jacques Pepin too.

  140. In my 4th year of Latin my latin teacher was traveling to Germany.

    Das Hause is Blau.
    Is all I can remember. It was 30 years ago and I was reading the cliff notes version of Caesars Gaelic Wars. tucked into the Latin 4 text book.

    Word for word translation Baby!

  141. Ahem:

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

  142. ‘Night, all!

  143. Lauraw, I imagine the Food network was eye porn for you. My hubby never had cable before me. He loves recipe shows and links.

  144. jules is one BMF

  145. Second look at heroin?

  146. this is not a bilingual blog.

    the only things “bi” here are Rosetta and maybe Cyn after a couple tee many martoonis.

  147. Vman, in Latin IV we translated the Gallic texts as well. And Tacitus. I don’t remember very much of my non Church Latin.

  148. Mr. RFH *loathes* one of the judges on the Food Network. Says she’s ugly, stupid, and doesn’t know anything other than insults. I can’t watch Chopped or Iron Chef when she’s on.

  149. Lauraw, she was always so tall. I loved reading about her actual story. I couldn’t watch her. I can’t watch most people touch raw food. I have issues. LOL

    *tilts head at oso in wonder*

    Okay, we need to do a post one of these days where people come out about their weird things.
    I think mine are mostly mannerisms, not weird issues.
    Scott has a couple weird issues. And mannerisms too, now I think on it.

  150. >> I liked Jacques Pepin too.

    Yeah, his shows were awesome.. all that diving and those purty fishes and shit.

    Aren’t you a little young to recall them?

  151. I remember seeing Julia drop a piece of food on the floor, pick it up and continue on cheerily like nothing had happened. She was a crackup.

    You ever watch Chopped? The judges are so fucked up sometimes. One of the chefs tasted the bourbon he was supposed to cook with by taking a shot from the bottle and then poured it into whatever he was making.

    One of the douchebag judges actually said that was unsanitary.

    DUDE! IT’S FUCKING ALCOHOL!!! IT’S WHAT THEY USE TO STERILIZE STUFF!!!

    Fucking idiots.

  152. I’m actually working on reteaching myself Chinese. None of that was in actual pinyin so…. best I can figure, oso was saying ‘I’m good, thanks, hello!’

    If anyone was wondering.

    *goes back to copying characters and otherwise being a nerd*

  153. i have clown issues, and apparently issues about making public faux pas

  154. I never watch those shows anymore…don’t know why. That was a kid interest, I think. The last person I used to watch (in high school) Frugal Gourmet, the one who got busted for being a perv.

  155. >> IT’S WHAT THEY USE TO STERILIZE STUFF!!!

    You saved my arm with it once.

  156. Lo Mein Revvy

  157. Totally OT, I earned a first in state in Latin Grammar and Mythology. Got an expense paid trip to the University of Miami Ohio for nationals. I felt stupid and even though I finished in the Top 10 in both categories I was too intimidated to accept my JCL scholarships to U of M. I read Car ins stories and I am in awe.

  158. I get the raw food thing Oso.

    Raw chicken = bio hazmat.

  159. fowl is foul.

    chickens eat crap.

  160. The last person I used to watch (in high school) Frugal Gourmet, the one who got busted for being a perv.

    LOVED watching that guy. he was so cool… yannow, up until the whole “molesting young boys” thing came out.

    Still have his cookbooks though.

    Don’t touch them. But still have them.

    You saved my arm with it once.

    See?

    I bet if you let me use the lighter as well, you would have healed even faster.

  161. Raw chicken = bio hazmat.

    Raw shrimp = delicacy.

  162. Revvy, Chinese is the new “Spanish”. Last time I was in Hawaii, everyone was speaking Chinese. The Japanese speakers have been kicked to the curb.

  163. You were on point with first aid. You smoked. You had a fuckin lighter, you just kept laughin so hard you couldn’t apply the flame, all you could do was wave a bottle of booze over my wound and giggle like a girl.

  164. Aaaaaggggieeee hep me i been hypnothized

  165. I’ve got one of those electric dish soap dispesers, you know the kind? You wave your hand or the pot under the spout and it squirts out a dollop?

    Something fucked up the senors. It started squirting soap. And squirting and squirting.

    It looked like a bukkake fest in the kitchen.

  166. I pretty much just took Chinese as a throwaway course in college to fill in credits.

    Turned out to be hard as balls. Mostly because it’s like learning two written languages at once that happen to share a common spoken language. Pinyin and characters. And I’m hard pressed to say which one is harder – pinyin possibly, if only for all of those FUCKING tone marks.

  167. all you could do was wave a bottle of booze over my wound and giggle like a girl.

    AKA “making a martini”

  168. lunch at Xbrads

  169. Hypnotized, WP??

  170. XBrad, hahahahahahahaha.

    I’m sure that was a bitch to clean up, but that’s funny.

  171. Turned out to be hard as balls.

    Xbrad would probably do very well with Chinese, then.

  172. Revvy, my chinese teacher was named Mrs Ma. There are 5 pronunciations for Ma. My friends are fighting over Cantonese and Mandarin pronunciation right now. Lunar New Year was the 23rd.

  173. Revvy, Chinese is the new “Spanish”. Last time I was in Hawaii, everyone was speaking Chinese.

    Yay!! Firefly is coming true!

  174. Baking the ciabatta bread Saturday. Starting the biga in the morning.

  175. its year of the dragon

  176. Every once in a while I get a craving and ask Scott to make a salad. Because he really does make the most delicious salads. He puts in EVERYTHING.

    The hilarious thing is how he meticulously chops everything. He makes such small confetti out of the ingredients that much of it falls through the tines of the fork. Still delicious though.

  177. Speaking of Frugal Gourmet, where are the PBS lawsuits?

  178. shiny master chief

  179. I did not know I knew anyone, I mean close and personal-like, who craved salads.

    Whoaa.. I gotta process this.

  180. laura spork?

  181. where are the PBS lawsuits?

    I have wondered for a loooong time.

  182. Quick Geoff – learn all of the cuss words from Firefly!

    Oso – I know. Same for shi.

    Shi and Ma – two words that will fuck you over in Chinese. Same for gui, since it can mean honorable or hell. So you might be trying to be polite but instead you end up cussing someone out.

  183. DiT, I crave salad. With a steak and potato on the side.

  184. DiT, I crave salad, too. With the StarKist lemon pepper tuna fish on it.

  185. Revvy, Gun ni nao chi ba mah nih ko pi. Then there is Sag wa seegwa toe.

  186. The hilarious thing is how he meticulously chops everything. He makes such small confetti out of the ingredients that much of it falls through the tines of the fork. Still delicious though.

    He’s making the hors d’oeuvres for SB Sunday, right?

    *prepares favorite spoon….

  187. And me makes three for salat :D

  188. Aaaaand you officially outstripped my knowledge of Chinese, Oso. Sorry, it was only a 10 week course >.>;

    I know how to hold only about half of the most basic possible conversations.

  189. Shi and Ma – two words that will fuck you over in Chinese.

    racist.

    (sorry, it needed saying…)

  190. I did not know I knew anyone, I mean close and personal-like, who craved salads.

    Yeah – salad’s just a trap. Like when you go into a Brazilian steakhouse and they have the all-you-can-eat salad bar. I fell for that the first time, then wised up on subsequent trips and just waited for the meat. Just give me the meat.

    A Brazilian steakhouse is the only place I know of where you want to sit by the kitchen. Then you get first dibs on the meat when it’s really hot and juicy.

  191. “Are you really that selfish?!”

    “Apparently.”

  192. http://tinyurl.com/6wjtugg

  193. Revvy, I just did some cussing. Pretty much my Spanish equivalent too. I curse in German too. My Dad sucked and didn’t expose me to more languages. He knew bar Thai, Tagalog, and Japanese.

  194. >> I crave salad.

    I hear the, words… but they do not make sense to me.

  195. http://tinyurl.com/6wjtugg

    HAHAHAHA!!!

  196. Aggs
    from wiki
    In 1997 seven men filed suit against Smith alleging that he sexually abused them when they were teens. Six of the plaintiffs alleged that the abuse occurred in the 1970′s while they were working for Smith at the Chaplain’s Pantry; the seventh plaintiff alleged that he was sexually assaulted in 1992 at age 15 while hitchhiking.[4][5] Smith denied the accusations but his alleged actions had been the subject of much talk around the city of Tacoma for years.[6] Smith was never charged with a crime but in 1998 he and his insurance company settled with the plaintiffs out of court a few days before the trial was to occur.[7]

  197. It’s a summer thing Dave.

  198. Anyone else having a drink?

  199. I know very small snippets of a few languages – Spanish, French, Chinese, Hebrew, Russian.

    Oddly enough I am really good at PRONOUNCING foreign languages, even if I’m not very good at speaking them. Every time my history teachers said ‘Awsh-wits’ I cringed a little.

  200. boiler maker here Aggs

  201. Awesome, WP :D

  202. LV calls it Nasty juice

  203. Revvy, I am a very good mimic. I can pronounce things correctly and have no idea what I said. It is apparently an Aspy thing.

  204. I have a glass of cold, filtered water.

  205. >> It’s a summer thing Dave.

    So, it goes on for, what, a few weeks there?

  206. I normally have water, MCPO, but my legs are restless, and I needed to relax before I went to bed.

    The bread sounds wonderful, by the way :)

  207. better Man than I , Master Chief

  208. Aggie, I started drinking early. Evan is pretty cheap here. Sam’s Club is carrying box chardonnay.

  209. aspy = ausburgers?

  210. Ralph’s “Heritage” brand whiskey for $10.99/1.75L

  211. Oso – mom’s side of the family is Jewish, and my sister and I were raised that way.

    As a result, Dad can now say the words ‘Baruch ata adonai, eloheinu melech ha’olam’ perfectly.

    I’m pretty sure he has no fucking clue what they mean.

  212. WP, Aspergers. I embrace my diagnosis.

  213. no mockage here oso-baby, i am high functioning myself, slight social retardation with anxiety issues

  214. i also like hamburgers

  215. Revvy, I can say that too. I had Jewish friends in mid school that now live in Israel. My mid school embraced all cultures. In the US, I had no jewish classmates. My BFF in the 4th grade has a daughter who just graduated HS. She is in the JDF.

  216. I shall join the mentally challenged parade – I was diagnosed with social anxiety disorder bordering on agoraphobia.

    It was good times.

  217. Revvy, I have no clue either. Help?

  218. o.o I just heard a thud and the lights all blinked. If the power goes out I will scream like a little girl.

  219. It’s not that I’m anti-social.

    It’s that most people are assholes.

  220. oh revvy i have severe hate for teh outside!

  221. Roamy – they’re the words that start off almost every single Hebrew prayer. Basically, ‘Blessed is God, King of the Universe’.

  222. sweet meteor of sleep.. zzzzzzz

    nite kids.

  223. G’night, Dave!

  224. Me too WP. It’s gotten better though. I had to leave school for a couple quarters at one point because I’d stopped going to classes and only left my apartment for food. And even then only when I’d gone without for a few days. I lost like 10 lbs in 2 months.

  225. night dave-o

  226. nighty night DiT!

  227. It’s not that I’m anti-social.

    It’s that most people are assholes.

    Truer words….

  228. LV gets me out when we take her for outings or go on the bus to pick her up from day care

  229. I was diagnosed with social anxiety disorder bordering on agoraphobia.

    Easy cure: invite Michael to spend the night.

  230. Ok, legs are settled, and I can finally sleep. Y’all have a goodnight!

  231. nighty Aggie!

    Geoff – Better cure, see a doctor who pretty much just says ‘yeah, stop doing that.’

    I’m serious, when it comes down to it, that was my psychologist’s entire method. “See, when you don’t want to go out? Do it anyway. It’s good for you.”

  232. I figured it was part of the Sabbath prayer or something.

    Sorry, Jews are even rarer than Catholics here.

  233. See – with my method the outside will seem safe and welcoming.

    At least by contrast.

  234. Aggie, G’night. Iron supplements helped me with RLS. Revvy, my Aspy diagnosis dovetailed with the agoraphobia thing. I couldn’t believe that I could get paid to stay at home. I force myself to talk to people daily.

  235. G’night, Aggie.

  236. night aggs

  237. I don’t mind “outside” so much. Heck, I kinda like the outdoors.

    But I’m not real big on going anywhere. I have a very comfy chair, I have a very comfy bed. Why would I want to leave them?

  238. Well Roamy, you’re kinda right XD

    It’s great to hear my Dad try to follow along with prayer readings though. He’ll say those first 6 words and then mumble nonsense under his breath for the rest of it.

  239. So Obama done good with the Somalian captive thing, but now it gets tough:

    Somali pirates holding another American hostage threatened to kill him on Thursday in the wake of Tuesday’s daring Navy SEAL rescue of two captives.

    “If they try again, we will all die together,” pirate Hassan Abdi told the Associated Press.

    “It’s difficult to hold U.S. hostages, because it’s a game of chance: die or get huge money. But we shall stick with our plans and will never release him until we get a ransom,” Abdi said.

    Obama is in a tough situation, for which I have some genuine sympathy. But he put himself there (to an extent), and unfortunately I don’t think he’s nearly man enough to handle this one.

  240. Roamy, I do the same thing during the Latin Mass. I miss it. When we lived overseas, it didn’t matter if our priest was Dutch, Kenyan, or Vietnamese. I have to go to a distant parish for Latin Mass now.

  241. Oso – with me it was baby steps. I was diagnosed just before I turned 19. My parents pulled me out of school when it got to the point that I was calling them every night bawling.
    See, social anxiety does not mix well with a college major requiring you to put up your work for public criticism every day.

    We started with me getting my driver’s license (yes I was 19 without a license). I think the first time my Dad really understood how bad it was was when I missed a turn during a practice drive, and when we finally got home I just started sobbing. He was trying to be comforting, but I’m pretty sure it freaked him out to see just how unhinged I was over something that small.

    But yeah, I was so bad at that point that I had to start real small. Get my license, then get a job, then take summer courses. I’m still working on that whole ‘making friends’ thing.

  242. Geoff, in my heart I know that Panetta makes the tough decisions. Hillary and the SCoaMF are too Alinsky to do what is right for America.

  243. i met my SO at a “Adult Mental Health” center, we both have outside issues among other things

  244. I’m pretty sure the REAL decision was made by a military guy in the theater, either CENTCOM or AFRICOM.

  245. Geoff, in my heart I know that Panetta makes the tough decisions.

    I think you’re probably right, but if we keep praising Obama when good things happen, perhaps the positive reinforcement will help.

    But in this case, I doubt Panetta was given enough leash to put together a long-term Somalian response plan, which should have been in place before they did the rescue.

  246. revvy you got at least one friend around

  247. Revvy, I still don’t drive. I have to make an effort to talk on the phone. I married a St. when it comes to my issues. I live within walking distance of my Dr, store, and job. Considering all the therapy I’ve had, I think I’m doing well.

  248. Well, Hitgirl, that goes a bit to explaining your Island of Misfit Toys avatard.

    Hang in there, all you weirdos and weirdettes.

    Good night.

  249. WP – I do? *looks under desk* Where?

    Oso – My mom says she thinks I came around really fast. I went back to school by the beginning of the next year, and managed to graduate on time.
    I made a couple of friends before leaving, even dated a little (though that may not have been entirely a good thing). I still wouldn’t say I’m completely normal, per se. I still care way too much about appearances, and I do occasionally get artistically paralyzed and can’t produce anything. But I don’t think ‘normal’ is a realistic goal for me anyway.

  250. nighty night xbrad

  251. GN, Xbad. Geoff, I am already seeing that the ScoaMF has no idea what is at stake in Somalia. He compromised the mission and left Americans in danger.

  252. Time to get back to work – those temperatures won’t calculate themselves.

    Y’all take care.

  253. I don’t think I’ve met an artist yet without anxiety or depression. My friend Ross has both, but then he’s an amazing artist. The people who make art but have no underlying psychosis seem to make boring art with no feeling.

  254. Catholics make up something like 2% of the population in Alabama. Mr. RFH had some adjusting to do after growing up in NJ.

    The only place I have ever heard a Latin Mass was in Rome.

  255. Seeya Geoff

  256. right here revvy

  257. Awww, *squishy hugs for WP*

  258. Revvy, what is normal? I was called a social retard for years before I got a diagnosis. I know three lives that were changed for the better with my diagnosis. I am an high functioning Aspy. Still not sure the connection between my eating disorder, sexual abuse, and Aspy diagnosis. My therapists are working on it.

  259. Roamy, I love the Latin Mass. I’ve experienced it at the Basilica in DC, in Taiwan, Virginia, California, and in Texas.

  260. oso-baby, taint nothing normal, just people hiding from their own demons

  261. I have a nephew with Asperger’s. Risperdal has made a big difference in his life, to where he and I actually had a good conversation at Christmastime.

  262. Risperdal is grrrrr-eat

    night all, remember you never know where you are till ya get there

  263. The people who make art but have no underlying psychosis seem to make boring art with no feeling.

    So that was Hitler’s problem?

  264. I didn’t say psychosis made for good art, just that there seemed to be a correlation between good art and an artist with some sort of psychosis. Just think though, if Hitler was a good artist things could be very different now.

  265. Yeah, everybody would probably be riding around in blimps right now. Alternate universes often feature blimps for some reason.

  266. Well, that all was an interesting read.

  267. wakey wakey

  268. Morning CaRiN.

    You look fabulous, do you work out?

  269. Morning pupster. Hubby jokes that the “line” is “you look so fit” — ha ha ha. Some guy said that to me, and Mr Car In says he was hitting on me.

    So when I get home, he asks me if anyone remarked on how “fit” I am.

  270. Mr Car In says he was hitting on me.

    Yup. I mean that guy was. I’m just interested in discount batteries and training tips.

    Also, cats are stupid.

    http://pupster.files.wordpress.com/2012/01/unfriendly_cat_rescue.gif

  271. Ha ha ha …

    Training tip of the day – actually ,I’ve found a GREAT new core exercise. Do you have a balance ball?

  272. Yup. I use it a lot.

    http://tinyurl.com/6kvx9j9

  273. Not sure what it’s doing for my core, but fun!

  274. Now, get on out there and take on the day!

    http://tinyurl.com/7nh58db

  275. Ha.

    Plank on it -arms bent on the ball, and “make a stirring motion with your hands”.

    AND – this one is harder – push up position, with your feet/ankles on the ball. Roll up on the ball, bringing your feet closer to your hands. You can do push ups in between rolls. Hard as heck.

    Aim for a low number ;)

  276. I don’t understand the first one. Plank on it? Are your feet touching the floor? Arms bent on the ball how far?

  277. http://tinyurl.com/5t42a2a

  278. I’m taking a week off from the gym. I think I sprained a hip. I needed the week off anyhow, but I hate having a reason.

  279. You will probably have to modify the technique for LW.

    *makes that gesture where I point to my shoulder with one hand and raise up my shirt at the shoulder with my other hand*

  280. http://tinyurl.com/5t42a2a

    That’s me, for sure.

  281. Good morning

  282. I can picture Carin’s exercises. I’m not sure I’d add them to my routine, but they would be helpful for some folks.

  283. I don’t understand the first one. Plank on it? Are your feet touching the floor? Arms bent on the ball how far?

    Feet on the floor, like they would be if you were doing a push up. Fore arms are resting on the ball, an I clasp my hands together. Then – stir the pot. LOL. Like you’re stirring a hug pot.

    The balance required, with the movement, works your core but good. the Other one may be even better, but it’s harder. I try to do ‘em both. The second one makes me cry. lol

  284. Unlike the “planking” thing kids do, plank is more of a push up position, with arms strait, or arms bent on the ground.

  285. Given the coincident rise of “stability work” and the marketing of bosu balls, I remain skeptical. My abs are rock, and I don’t even do crunches.

  286. You guys see this? When Obama spoke in Chandler, AZ, 1500 workers were told to stay home, for security reasons, w/o pay.

  287. **sells Intel stock in a hurry.

  288. ncident rise of “stability work” and the marketing of bosu balls, I remain skeptical. My abs are rock, and I don’t even do crunches.

    My abs are NOT rock – 5 babies, kidney donation, etc. My lower abs can get really week.

    The stability ball really does add a nice level to reg core work – the first time I did those moves I was so sore the next day.

    But, I think the main reason for “stuff” like balls, etc, is that new moves simply makes your workouts more interesting. I can only do crunches or this and that so many times.

    And, I know guys do ab work with weights – I don’t care for that. walking with weights on one arm, and a variety of work that gets the core. But for me, the more I can do on my own, away from the sweaty guys, the better.

  289. His actions have no repercussions, Carin. Other people’s lives can only be disrupted by destiny and fate. Obama exists to help us overcome that.

  290. I did hear that Carin and had to chuckle, like his Disney visit. Plus that exchange with Gov Brewer… What an assdouche

  291. And, I’ve had my stability ball for … 12 years.

  292. I’ve been reading about Obama’s ballot eligibility in Georgia. It sounds like he’s hoping the problem will go away. That would be wild if he ended up not on the ballot.

  293. That sounds about right Car in.

    It’s not much different than shutting down Disney World to give a speech promoting tourism.

  294. I may have awakened with MJ’s cussing tourettes.

  295. I just don’t even work my abs. They are under enough stress from my barbell work that they don’t need it. I can see the applications, they make sense, they just aren’t really for me. I also worry every time they put an old man up on one of those things. No amount of :”stability work” is going to fix his inner ear’s sense of gravity, but they go along with it. Then they quit the gym after a month.

    And if I were at Intel, I’d use the day off to protest.

  296. >> Plank on it -arms bent on the ball

    My left one or my right one?

    *leans over and reaches*

  297. That would be wild if he ended up not on the ballot.

    I’m watching that, too! Seems to me the judge is well within the law, and has slapped the Obama lawyer with the hard fact that Obama ain’t above the law.

  298. My abs are NOT rock – 5 babies, kidney donation, etc. My lower abs can get really week.
    ——————————–
    You forgot to blame Bush.

  299. You guys want to hear something delicious for a Fri morn? A judge here has ruled that a chick in southern AZ running for a city counsel seat must be removed from the ballot because she is not proficient in English, a requirement for office holders.

    Bwahahahahaha!

  300. Aggie, I wonder if they are going to address what looks like Photoshopping of Obama’s birth certificate.

  306. And another Hmmm…

  307. Good riddance.

  308. At first, I thought the birth certificate thing was a tempest in a teacup, but the longer it dragged on, the more I wondered, “WTF is he hiding?”

    Aggie and Oso, thank you for your kind words last night. For those who don’t know, one of my former co-workers passed away just before Christmas, and I only found out yesterday. Got some guilt trippin’ going on.

  309. Aggie, Turbotax Timmy is out after this year, too.

  310. Sorry to hear of your loss, Roamy.

  311. WTF is advising republicans?

    Go after Obama not each other.

    We can still make up our minds on which candidate will best run against OBAMA.

  312. My abs are NOT rock – 5 babies, kidney donation, etc. My lower abs can get really week.
    ——————————–
    You forgot to blame Bush.

    You’re right. And BUSH and HALLIBURTON. And the 1%.

    But I wasn’t really making excuses. Women have an added difficulty with abs than men. YOU use your abs to hold a 20 lb beach ball in your tummy and see how it looks afterwards.

  313. Photoshopping of the birth certificate? WTF?

  314. Oh, sad about your co-worker, Roamy.

  315. Anyone who thinks that is Obama’s real certificate is an idiot. It’s not.

    Live in Hawaii 50 years ago, heck 30 years ago and you know why THE GOVERNOR, WHO IS A DEMOCRAT couldn’t find it either.

  316. I also worry every time they put an old man up on one of those things. No amount of :”stability work” is going to fix his inner ear’s sense of gravity, but they go along with it. Then they quit the gym after a month.

    I’ve never seen the trainer at my gym to that to any old folks. He’s really good. Adjusts for ability/age, etc.

  317. Thanks, Cyn, mare. He had a good, full life.

  318. Stupid Mac Question: My hard drive has 53GB of movies on it, but I can’t find them anywhere. How do I delete these files. It seems odd because we use the computer to watch movies, but we don’t download them.

  319. Thanks, roamy. I thought maybe there was a new one.

    First thing that came up when I googled it:

  331. There is less than a year until the election, an election that will decide the next President of the United States. The person elected will be the president of all Americans, not just the Democrats or the Republicans.

    To show our solidarity as Americans, let’s all get together and show each other our support for the candidate of our choice. It’s time that we come together, Democrats, Independents, and Republicans alike. If you support the policies and character of the Republican party, please drive with your headlights on during the day. If you support Obama, please drive with your headlights off at night.

  332. They are small….duh.

  336. HS, what Obama campaign fundraiser are you at RIGHT NOW?

  337. I was eating lunch on the 20th of February last year with my 6-year-old granddaughter and I asked her, “What day is tomorrow?”

    She said “It’s President’s Day!”

    She is a smart kid. So, I asked “What does President’s Day mean?” I was waiting for something about Washington or Lincoln etc.

    She replied, “President’s Day is when President Obama steps out of the White House, and if he sees his shadow we have one more year of unemployment.”

    You know, it hurts when hot coffee spurts out your nose.

  350. Obama’s such an ass, and his admirers are so fucking stupid. I watched a bit of his speech at U of Michigan – and he said something along the lines of how everyone in america should have be able to go to a university as good a U of M, and the little stupid idiots started clapping and cheering.

    I wanted them to stop – and ask them “Remember all the studying you did in high school? All the tests, and extra activities, all so you could get accepted to this elite university? And you think everyone should get the same quality of higher eucation, then have the same credentials – even they were/or are a C student with an 800 combined on the SAT?”

    FYI: All of these numbers are bullshit. The only real comparison is from the time the person takes office, to the time they leave, summing the total data. And don’t even get me started on created or ‘saved.’ Black belts made that shit up, resulting in estimates such as, between 1-3.4M. That kind of variation reduces the confidence level in the model to less than 50% which means its a total fucking guess.

  389. The original hostages all started at AoS and would eventually congregate on a now-disappeared blog started up by a “Pinto” commenter of the “Wicked” kind. So they ‘split’ away from the mothership.

  390. Smooooches DiT!

  391. I can’t do it. I started to watch the Diane Sawyer Turkey Gobbler Neck interview and I couldn’t get past 30 seconds. Why doesn’t she just fellate him and be done with it?

  392. I’m assuming it’s because you started a blog and comment there, rather than AOS.

    Actually, the name was originally used to describe IB. Back before Ace’s was so popular, it used to be the same small group of regulars commenting there. IB got started as a joke and Michael decided to invite a number Ace’s regulars to blog there with him.

    Hence, “splitters”

    It’s a reference to Monty Python’s Life of Brian.

  393. >> Smooooches DiT!

    *thud*

    Yeah, it’s a riff on that bit from The Life of Brian whenever the members of the Judean People’s Front ran across a former member who’s now in the People’s Front of Judea, they’d yell “SPLITTERS” and spit at em

  394. I think my 7 year old iPod may be shitting the bed.

    *curses*

  395. BBF is now available for your fapping pleasure

  396. This will make you mad – those USF “fees” that you pay on your phone and cell phone bill each month are used to provide “free” phone service to people who can’t afford it. But I bet your phone bills aren’t THIS high:

    USF has also become
    wasteful and inefficient in some situations, paying over $20,000 a year – nearly $2,000 per month – in support per line for some households

    And now the FCC wants to make taxpayers pick up the bill to provide BROADBAND services to these people as well…..

  397. Thanks for linking over to my blog for the whole ‘jobs created’ thing… I spun the numbers several ways in that post, and in all of them Obama sucks. Although I agree with those who say ‘politicians can’t create jobs’- all they can do is get out of my f#*$ing way as I create them!
