Let’s pretend it’s still Monday, for Laura’s sake

So it’s not Monday any more, and it’s not Wednesday yet, and no one else has stepped up to the plate. I really don’t want to do this, but I feel larger events have forced my hand.

Here’s a video I like:

And a cool piece of music with a static image:

And a pic of a hot chick, just because:

I like to call this “Laura hunting Tuesday, after making yogurt”.

  1. Twitter said we had a new poat.

  2. The old one was ready to retire, its work was finished.

  3. What is Fitocracy?

  4. What’s the narrative today? I’ve got pencil, paper and a closed mind ready to go!

  5. I dunno. I just don’t see AA or union types staying home because of gay marriage.

    Well, it’s because of AA that he hasn’t come out in full board support. They’re not down with that in the hood, iykwimaittyd.

  6. Good morning, today is T-day, March 27th. The narrative is as follows:

    Republicans are evil racist homophobic stupid dootie heads.

  7. Fitocracy is Leon’s way of making the other people at work feel bad about themselves.

  8. *whispers like old-timey gameshow Password

    The narrative is: The Children™.

  9. The Children™.

    That’s always a good one.

  10. Must have been someone else that asked me for the invite, sorry.

    And I don’t use it to make people feel bad. Not intentionally. My much geekier friends that invited me were somewhat shocked and disheartened when they saw my workouts, though, and that was really rewarding for me. Warmed my cold, black heart.

  11. Oh, I get it. I have a running journal that I use. It’s made of paper.

  12. I’m out. Have a good one.

  13. The narrative is you’re racist.

  14. I’m just teasing, leaon.

  15. I just made breakfast, and it is awesome.

  16. I’m still seething over Obama and his worminess over missiles/missile defense with the Russians.

    He’s a fricken traitor.

  17. “The narrative is you’re racist.”

    Old, but continually used….a classic!

  18. It’d be a good thing for us to remember that as hard as it is to believe, running for re-election has somewhat tempered him in office and kept him on the defensive.

    He gets a second term he will have no constraints. It’ll be full-on “take that, America.” Obama’s second term would be a nightmare.

  19. “He gets a second term he will have no constraints. It’ll be full-on “take that, America.” Obama’s second term would be a nightmare.”

    This is absolutely true, and dare I say, frightening. Imagine the crap that Sebelius, Wu, Ayers, Axelrod, Napalitano, etc., have cooked up.

    If you pray, start now.

  20. He’ll really be proud of his country in the next 4 years, that’s for sure.

  21. That’s why I can vote for Mitt. Or Santorum. ABO

  22. Good morning team

  23. RT @MJ I just made breakfast, and it is awesome.

    Wait, I’m doing it wrong

  24. “That’s why I can vote for Mitt. Or Santorum. ABO”

    I’m right there with you.

  25. The narrative is Barack Obama deserves a second term.

    Pass it on.

  26. Seems everyone went to H3. Wonder what happened.

  27. FU, douche tool!

  28. Mitt Romney as Block of Cheese.

  29. ABO is dreamy.

  30. I find it sort of interesting that yesterday’s technology, i.e. windmills, electric cars, organic foods, etc are MOAR expensive.

    In the free market, better, faster, cheaper always wins.

    *waits for government program to push dial up modems.

  31. “ABO is dreamy.”

    HAHAHA…Yes, ABO is my dream prom date!

    (FTR, I don’t give a crap about proms)

  32. I think the defeat of Obamacare may actually help Chicago Jesus. He seems less scary, but Dave’s (release the Krauthammer!) points is still valid.

    If it stands, the REPEAL message is pretty powerful, even carried forth by Mitt.

    I kind of wonder if the mandate might be struck down, but the other expensive parts remain, driving up the cost of insurance exponentially, setting the table for a stronger single payer argument.

  33. I met Tommy Lee Jones at Prom.

  34. Where the frack is Car in? I have important Lake Lapeer questions.

  35. Mare is so rad.

  36. What? I’m here. I was reading about Malik Shabazz comparing Detroit’s emergency manager to slavery.

    I had to get up off the floor.

  37. You lost me at Malik Shabazz.

  38. How big is the lake and how deep? I think you said 12 feet. Can I swim about a mile in it?

    Also, what types of shots will I need to swim in a lake? Will anything try to eat me?

  39. ABO took me to my senior prom.

  40. snapping turtles

  41. Left, ABO….Right, me:

  42. Okay, I’m going to workout. My Goal? 30 pounds in a week.

    Seems legit!

  43. Don’t cut off any extremities to make your goal, mare. You’d regret it.

  44. Awesome video linky, Scott.

  45. Also, what in the heck is running over at AoS that it takes forever to load the page, or if you try to close the page it fuxxors all the rest of your open tabs? I demand answers!!

    *pulls up hoodie and nibbles on Cheese Nips*

  46. The lake is VERY deep, more than 12 feet-try over 50. You can just jump in off of our dock. The banks are a bit mucky, but they drop off very fast. I’m sure you could get a nice distance. It’s about 600 meters long, so from one end and back would be 1200 meters – .75 miles.

    I’ve never gotten any diseases in it, my Matt get’s swimmers ear or something when he swims in the neighbor’s lake (it’s smaller and much shallower and had a ton of those goose living on it).

    There are turtles and fish and lake beavers. I’ve never run into anything that threatened me. The turtles sometimes eat the baby ducks, but they never threaten the full grown ones, so I don’t think they could eat you.

    We’d miss you, though. Probably do a candle-light vigil and everything.

  47. Everyone check your whore mail. Lemme know if you didn’t get lapeerpalooza info.

    Hopefully I’ve corrected any and all email errors.

  48. Probably do a candle-light vigil and everything.

    There’d be an open bar, right? And food?

  49. Yes, J’ames, but we’ll ask that you refrain from actually getting a drink during the service.

    It’s only going to be, like, 5 min. Just make sure you’re good to go before it starts.

  50. Thanks for the lake info. I have been talked into doing a triathlon in October, and apparently you have to work really hard at it, and swim and stuff.

  51. Ill bet Henry would come to an open bar, unless there were peas

  52. nothing in my mail about anything

  53. Both hotels also have pools. Which you’d know if you checked your whoremail.

  54. You want to be added to our Lapeerpalooza email list, Wpdunn? It’s just hotel information.

  55. Will there be boats? So we can chase MJ in the middle of the lake.

  56. well, i mean you SAID check my mail, and i am so in awe of your buns o steel that i MUST OBEY
    CAR IN is DOUBLE PLUS GOOD CAR IN IS DOUBLE PLUS GOOD

    plus i am afraid of you

  62. The monkeys are UNION? Oh my, this is worse than I thought.

    Pretty soon they’ll have trayvon shirts.

  63. If we steal Lauraw’s monkeys on a Tuesday … this isn’t going to bode well in the long term.

  64. I think you mean Trayvvon hoodies, J’ames.

  65. He gets a second term he will have no constraints. It’ll be full-on “take that, America.” Obama’s second term would be a nightmare.

    Kinda like FDR…..
    (There’s a reason the 22nd Amendment was ratified so quickly)

    And when did the monkeys start wearing hoodies? I thought they had to wear open vests and those Shriner’s fezes –

  66. you are thinking of the Chicago Mr Chimpus Musical Monkeys

  67. DD#3 just read something to me that almost had me spewing my Coke:

    Someone wrote: “I’m tired of hearing how ‘crap’ America is – tell me something good about America”

    Someone else wrote in: “Back-to-back World War Champs!”

  69. I’m shocked – SHOCKED! – to hear that a member of the NBP is a convicted felon:

    According to the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office, Hashim Nzinga, 49 of Norcross, was arrested at probation office he was reporting to in Lawrenceville. He taken to Dekalb County Jail and charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

  71. We wouldn’t have that problem if all firearms were outlawed, now, would we?

    Apparently I was too hard on the fluke eagles, turns out mom has coaxed at least one to try to escape its ova-prison (h/t Beasn) and dad has been working 2 jobs (h/t ChrisP), so all is right without a govt mandate.

    Repub eagles are styling of course. Repub dad is hunting machine, likes a tasty variety, I have seen at least 6 different species, including a turtle and a frog.

    I am watching some owls too, but they suck, mostly because they swivel their head around like that little girl from ‘The Exorcist’. Freaks.

  93. If you read the piece I linked, you’ll get it all. I saw this getting twitched last night, read it, and RT’d myself.

    tl;dr… 1. Media is served by this shooting with attention and viewers, 2. Civil Rights leaders are served with renewed purpose, and 3. Journolisters who missed out on the race shit of the 50s & 60s are given the oppty to weigh in.

    *writes ‘not fun’ next to eagle updates, throws 3 volume memoir in trash.*

    *thinks about paint drying updates*

  108. It’s a bit Orwellian. The government’s position is that it isn’t creating the market for insurance through the mandate, but regulating an existing market, because even if you don’t participate by not buying insurance, you are still participating and are therefore in the market.

    *goes back to eating paste

  109. Well, G Mo, I for one can’t wait to eat one of those eagles.

    *checks family tree for Injuns*

  110. Yep, gun laws are regulating an existing market too, so we all participate, then we should all get our govt issued firearms mandated, I guess.

  111. …because even if you don’t participate by not buying insurance, you are still participating and are therefore in the market.

  154. Also, MJ, did they forget that a majority of citizens did not want the legislation? That means serious push back to me and they seem surprised about it.

  155. MCPO, can you make it 6:30?

  156. It’s for our own good.

    No shit?! I hadn’t heard that. HAHAHAHAHA! Oh man, that’s rich. When my two sons negotiate stuff and go so far as to put it in writing, even *they* add a severability clause.

  160. What is astounding is their insistence that they are incredibly smart (know what’s good for us) and that Obama is a Constitutional scholar……HAHAHAHAHA

    Even if they won this round, saying Obama is a scholar about anything is truly laughable.

  161. You don’t need a severability clause, if it’s intended to lead to something else. It just transforms.

    Yep. The government’s position is basically that the mandate is required for the other provisions. The goodies, such as eliminating pre-existing conditions and keeping your kids on your insurance until they are in their mid to late fifties is predicated upon expanding the pool with a mandate.

    Well the parrots just repeat what they’ve been told, they have no idea what goes on in the Supreme Court.

    But many libs are simply stating it as a talking point to make it seem as though there could be no serious argument on its constitutionality. The old “all serious legal scholars agree” meme, as if by repeating the lie often enough makes it true.

    Incidentally, severability clauses or the lack thereof aren’t really the final word in law.

    The baby ones don’t have much meat on their bones but they make excellent broth.

  200. Chief, the republicans in congress have done little. They can pass this and they can pass that, but they are awfully quiet.

    No noise, like Botox and the cryptkeeper always made, every day, loudly.

    NOthing.

  201. I think the SCOTUS is going to give Obama is healthcare takeover

    Why do you say that? Answer that and then bite your tongue.

  202. Me too. I think Kennedy is feinting left.
    Just a gut thing.

  203. Feinting right, that is.

  204. So last week, Mr. TiFW wasn’t feeling well – still – and his doctor wanted him to get some bloodwork done. Why, I still haven’t figured out, but he’s a “professional”, so I figure he must have a good reason.

    Mr. TiFW gets a note from his doctor on Saturday (of course), telling him that the doctor wants to talk to him about his test results. Naturally, all day Sunday (and Monday, because he couldn’t get an appt) was spent with him doing his best George Costanza impression (Is it lupus?).

    Calls me from Dr’s appt today, tells me that his “C-Reactive Protein” test (it measures inflammation) came back with a high enough number for his doctor to want to change his cholesterol meds.

    Mind you, he didn’t have a lipid profile done, AND HE WAS SICK WHEN THEY TOOK HIS BLOOD.

    So his doctor is telling him that a high CRP level is indicative of clogging in the arteries, and has him all wired up; Mr. TiFW asks me to “do some research”.

    So I do.

    If you’re sick, the test results may skew high – says so on every site that I look at.

    I tell him that perhaps he should wait until he knows that he is better, and have the test run again BEFORE he makes any drastic changes to his medication.

    And he tells me that “You’re not a doctor – what do you know?”

    SIGH…..

  205. Teresa, I was recently at a Dr’s office. The Dr was under 30, and googled stuff right in front of me.

    “It says here…….”

    Get a 2nd opinion Teresa, check with BING.

  206. Right or left? This whole situation is freaking me out. I can’t figure out how it plays politically, win or lose.

  207. Beasn I am optimistic that it will be ruled unconstitutional.

  208. Mainly because it is.

  209. scot, from your fingers to God’s eyes.

    And then we tag team and beat laura and Chief’s ass humps.

    These commies are not good for my ticker.

  210. *goes to watch eagle domesticity*

  211. Sure, it’s unconstitutional. But so was the SCOTUS take-down of abortion laws in all 50 states in one fell swoop.

  212. Did the poat for the day, wrote a thank you note to my cocoa vendor, worked 8 hours, got my oil changed and transmission fluid flushed, started my laundry, washed the dishes, and got my dinner/breakfast in the oven.

    I’ve pretty much kicked ass at the day between Monday and Wednesday.

  213. Kennedy will do the right thing. Kennedy’s always do the right thing…

    crap

  214. It’s unconstitutional to us on the right. But it will be a 5-4 decision, and will depend on who argues their side better, and convinces Kennedy, just like all the important issues.

    This is no way to run a country.

  215. *facepalms*

  216. The wheat law challenged in Wickard v Filburn was unconstitutional, we all know how that turned out.

  217. yeah, people like free shit and a sugar daddy to take care of them.

  218. This is no way to run a country.

    You may thank Thos. Jefferson for not arresting the entire SCOTUS in 1803 when they published the decision of Marbury v. Madison.

  219. This is no way to run a country.

    Exactly, so besides looting the treasury and taking advantage of insider trading…..where the frak are those who took an oath to the Constitution?

  220. Looks like Leon is safe for another year. . .

  221. As I see it, it’s between people who favor a strict reading (conservatives) and people who read loosely (liberals). The Commerce Clause is just filler to us, but the main motivator for the other side. Same thing with the Necessary and Proper Clause.

    Interpretive reading, ugh. When words quit meaning things, I guess.

  222. theys a baby eagle now?

  223. Look, I’m in the only militia that matters. I see no reason to join a smaller one.

  224. This is no way to run a country.
    ————————————————
    Agreed. It should be left to whomever can best illustrate their point on a brick wall with imaginary chalk.

  225. All you need to know: Today it isn’t a tax. Tomorrow it’s a tax.

    Words mean nothing to the Left.

    Shut up.

  226. Kelo v. New London.

  228. “Tomorrow it’s a tax.”

    What is it the day after tomorrow?

  229. *fires up miniature bbq spit for Sean*

  230. Beasn – Was that recording at the end of a runway?!

  231. Chief, it’s a very windy day and I think it’s near a road, which isn’t very loud.

  232. Kelo v. New London.
    ————————————-
    Yes, but there is a payment to the citizen. Here your property is confiscated by the penalty, but nothing is given as compensation.

  233. Oh I got the link beasn, I just hadn’t checked today

  234. Why is g-mo going to cook sean? Does he think he’s a for realz feather injun?

  235. but nothing is given as compensation.

    You get ‘free’ healthcare, duh.

  236. We get free healthcare now.

  237. Oh fuck it. They’re wrong. It’s such a poorly written law that even the most equivocal of attorney’s can’t make hash out of it.

    *smokes hash

  238. “Me too. I think Kennedy is feinting left.
    Just a gut thing.”

    If so, Kennedy is a prick…also, Hey, Kennedy:

  245. That table hit him on purpose because of his hoodie.

    RACIST.

  246. If you need some cheering up Beasn go to Drudgereport.

  247. Scot, what have I ever done to you?

  248. CONFESSION!

    i yelled at kids mischief making outside our Apt., a few of them may have been Mezzican and black, definitely one was klingon.

    I’m pretty sure it was from Forrest Gump.

  254. There has been confirmation of a second pip.

  255. I’m pretty sure it was from Forrest Gump.

    Tom Hanks has ensured that I won’t ever be able to watch that again, so I’ll just have to trust you.

  256. Do I believe scot and go look at Drudge or should I put him on my ‘kill first’ list?

    Is Drudge reporting barky is stepping down? Malik Shabazz had a work place accident? I won the mega-millions and din’t know it, or Israel ‘took care of things’?

  257. Did anybody pick anybody else last for their kickball team today?

  258. I thought Gladys Knight had 3 pips.

  259. Honest Beasn… healthcare headlines will cheer you up.

  260. You can go look at Drudge, Beasnsnsns.

  261. I’ll go look but until it’s set in stone that it’s been rejected as the PoS it is, I refuse to cheer up.

    That and getting a new job.

    And paying off the house……

  262. When will these idiots learn this isn’t Europe?

  272. I will believe we are boned with Okillercare until I actually see otherwise. These scotus hearings give me no comfort.

  273. HA! Beasnsns, Scott beat you to it!

  274. HA! Beasnsns, Scott beat you to it!

    the stinker

    Last summer, a study of more than 100,000 people found those who ate the most chocolate were 39 percent less likely to get heart disease and 29 percent less likely to have a stroke,

    See, my body knows what my mind finally found out. I eated a bar today and yesterday and half a bar the day before….

  275. Wash it down with coffee and red wine and live to be 120.

  276. Your chocolate rations will be increased to 15 grams from 20 grams under Obamacare.

  277. No can do the coffee. It’s tastes like I imagine tree bark to taste and that much caffeine puts me on the ceiling – though will decaf have the same health benefits? If so, i can drink tree bark water.

    Can’t do red wine. HATE the taste.

  278. “Your chocolate rations will be increased to 15 grams from 20 grams under Obamacare.”

    That kind of makes me sad.

    Beasn, do you drink at all? And if so, what would you drink?

  279. My mom said her MiL lasted so long ’cause of pure ‘orneriness’.

    Actually…it was more like ‘hateful bitch’ trying to outlast her.

  280. Something as big as this before the nine black robes ain’t gonna get decided cause the SG had a shitty day. They’re makin show

  281. Decaf is bad for you. Double up on the chocolate.

  282. Mare, last time I imbibed was a daiquiri nearly 20 years ago. Time before that was in college. Vodka.

    Bad experience = long memory in my gag reflex. That and I’m a super taster and can’t take stand the taste of many things.

    I should probably try again. What is a good whiskey? I hear a tsp or shot a day is good for the vascular system.

  283. Why is decaf bad for you?

    Dave, who is making show? All of them? What, they’re f*cking actors now?

    That tree of liberty needs a waterin’.

  284. Is decaf tea bad, too? I like sweet tea but caffeine is not good for a beasn.

  285. Never had whiskey….that I know of.

  286. *shuns mare*

  287. Most of their questions and remarks are aimed at the other justices. Was funny when Ginsberg started helping the Solicitor General with his own arguments.

  288. How come the other justices can’t slap their commie peers down on crap like that?

    How come the she-man can’t be forced to recuse herself?

  289. How come the she-man can’t be forced to recuse herself?

    Because she’s a commie with an agenda?

  290. DECAF PEOPLE, why is decaf bad for you?

    Oh and January Jones ate her own placenta. * barfs *
    My son just told me that I’m not very accepting of those different than myself.
    I asked him if he’s turning into a hippy and if I should have saved his for him to chew on later.

  291. Because they have power too.

  292. Chief, I know she is and most people know she is, but why can’t she be FORCED to recuse herself? Shouldn’t they chief justice point out her paper trail and lock her out of the courtroom?

  293. Good funeral.

    Some LCDR Chaplain who’d never met Lex, so he was meh, but in a professional manner. Good honors party. Good turnout. COMTHRDFLT showed up. Mrs. Lex was delightful. A spine of steel, a smile of velvet. Easy to see why Lex was smitten.

    Lots of bloggers turned out. Good crowd of folks, nice flyover, and F-18 and a F-21.

  294. Is there anyone in government not for Barky’s change. I’m thinking not.

  295. Confessional Update

    the parents of the hooligans came by and apologized for the mob action

    the Klingon child is actually Lebanese
    i apologize for the misinformation

  296. HA! I figured someone would, Andy.

    It’s pretty rare when I have anything other than wine. Bad things happen when I veer off course.

  297. Nice, xbrad. Thanks.

  298. Chief Justice didn’t support the recusal. That was very disappointing. I think he’s old school and felt she would act with integrity. He may or may not be a stooge.

  299. Good to hear, brad.

  300. Thanks for the Lex update X
    I wish I was there.

  301. If I wasn’t drinking a glass of Woodford right now, I might have let it slide.

  302. I was thinking about you today, xbrad. Glad you were able to attend.

  303. IF she had integrity she would have recused herself. That’s why I’m wondering why Roberts was acting obtuse.

  304. My Dad drank scotch, in his day it was more expensive and lots of people wouldn’t stock it at home, to avoid embarrassing them he would drink whiskey if asked.

  305. I’m glad it was a nice service, b-rad.

    Off to a book study meeting. Don’t play in the old freezer while I’m gone.

  306. So what happens if information with her arguments or work or whatever come across their desks? They disappear it.

    This not making her recuse could be a huge red flag that they are all in on it.

  307. Scotch is a type of whisky.

  308. That’s no moon. It’s a space station!

  309. Scotch is a type of whisky.

    That I know.

    My Dad owned restaurants and a few bars.

  310. Scotch is a type of whisky.

    Did you learn that from the earpiece?

  311. Actually, in Britain, it is referred to as, “Scotch whiskey”.

  312. >> That I know

    Then what, exactly, did your prior comment mean? I read it as “he’d drink whisky instead of scotch”, which doesn’t make any sense.

  313. I never waitressed, bussed or acted as hostess, however, I did my share of cleaning bathrooms, washing dishes and general dirty work.

    LOTS OF IT.

    I want my $2!!!

  314. Andy, if you don’t know there are differences in whiskey, you’re not making any sense.

    Good Scotch Whiskey is not the same as a lesser Canadian “blended.”

  315. That’s not what you said, though, fatty.

    *runs*

  316. I’m assuming you know only a douche would ask for something at someone’s home that is more expensive or generally not stocked.

    You can ask for Scotch and you can ask for whiskey…Gus would know the difference!

    Gus would take his gun and smack you across the face for your insolence.

  317. . . . I’m your Huckleberry.

  318. Good news, folks! Maetenloch has a chart at EwokHQ that says people mostly murder people of their own race. This means you all are safe from me.

    The bad news is that you all will have to be extra wary of Dave.

  319. Tushar – You’re from New Jersey. . . we all keep our eyes on you!

  320. Chief, you won’t see it coming.

  321. Gus would take his gun and smack you across the face for your insolence.

    Gus sounds like a really bad host.

  322. Chief, you won’t see it coming.

    Not without his reading glasses, anyway….

  323. Yer from goddam New Jersey Major, Tushar. What do you know about surfing?

  324. Start out with something like Crown if you wanna give whiskey a try. It might grow on you.

  325. The bad news is that you all will have to be extra wary of Dave.

    You mean “extra wavy”, but its cool. I’ll just go to the other end of the pool.

  326. Xbrad, for surfing, you need a powerful computer, a good browser and a high speed internet.

  327. BiW, the pool you will usually find Dave in does have an other end. It is called the western coast of Africa.

  328. Start out with something like Crown THIS if you wanna give whiskey a try.

  329. xbrad, glad you could go. Thanks for the update.

    Why is everybody backing away from me?

    (beasn, the left will not willingly give up power, including SCOTUS. Not happening)

  330. Chief, I don wanna think you wanna take a chance on wasting that on someone who may not like whiskey.

  331. There was Guinness and Jameson at the reception.

    I HAD to go.

  332. **poke**

  333. Put yer pants back on xbrad.

  334. G-Mo – If they don’t like it, they could give it to me!

  335. sheesh

  336. That was regarding pantsless xbrad.

  337. what, we have to have pants on?

  338. Nah, Dave, it’s after midnight only one time zone away from the east coast.

  339. I’m glad the evIl oil and gas industry pays my salary. Otherwise that $102 I just pu in the old F250 would be pissin me off.

  340. *counts on my fingers*

    It’s eleven here

  341. Are we sure Leon really did this poat? Why do I ask, you say. Well, easy – the young lady pictured in the header has no apparent dick or adam’s apple, that’s why.

  342. Pendejo,

    I’m back to driving my old airport beater to save on gas. 92 Saturn with 200K mi on it. It’s barely clinging to life.

  343. I’m wearing sweat pants! What do you want? I was in a suit all damn day!

  344. Okay, everybody drop trou! I’m going to bed, goodnights all

  345. I’m wearing a flight suit, which is tecnically not pants.

    Probably the best thing about my job right now.

  346. Does

  348. Goo morn.

  349. My outrageous outrage meter is getting pretty low. Slowly slipping into the sweet embrace of not giving a fuck.

  350. I’m drinking a lot of chocolate now. I bought a french press just to facilitate it. Tasty stuff.

  351. Don’t drink too much, leon. You lose weight and disappear!

  352. Ga meh-meh.

    *stretches*

  353. Must be hump day. There’s laura!

  354. Heh, Sean.

    Say, does anybody know what day it is?
    Holy shit it’s WEDNESDAY!
    We totally skipped Tuesday this week!
    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

    *twirls Leon around in a circle so his skirt flies up*

  355. Jay slipped in there before me.

    Listen man, it isn’t really Hump Day until you’re surrounded by gay guys on a new poat.

  356. …and Gabe shows up to tell you which ones ‘his friend’ has seen in porn.

  357. *twirls Leon around in a circle so his skirt flies up*

    Crap, I don’t have underwear on yet. Hope no one saw that.

    Aww who’m I kidding, my ass is amazing. I hope everyone saw that.

  358. I actually brewed chocolate and coffee today. Not together, cocoa in the press and coffee in the machine. Cocoa’s for home, coffee’s for work. I hate the work coffee. Even the dirt cheap Eight O’Clock coffee is better.

  359. I like Eight O’Clock brand coffee.

  360. I just watched Shirley Manson in an old garbage video, then saw CAC’s map from last night. I need some private time.

  361. Laura, the hazelnut is surprisingly good if you haven’t tried it.

  362. I will try it, Leon. Love the flavor of hazelnut.

    Time to get ready for work.

    Have a good day everybody.

  363. Is is still not Wednesday? Weird.

    Oh well, worktime.

  364. Hey, we skipped, that other day.

    Cool

  365. Oh, man. I’m listening to the second half of the SCOTUS from yesterday and Justice Sotosomethingorother is using the car insurance analogy to ask questions of Paul Clement.

    I thought she was wise?

  366. There’s a new poat, Pups.
