Truncated Motivational Tuesday

It’s not Monday. That’s just a terrifying tragedy that we’re all going to have to face. Does the 4-day work week ahead mean we need no motivation? Of course not!

But we really don’t need as much as normal, do we? So here’s just enough to get you by.

Front:

Hi Jessica.

Back:

I don’t know her name. I wish I did, but she wouldn’t tell me when I asked. Unless her name is “SECURITY!”. Which I doubt, mostly.

Side:

Pretty smiles are always motivatin’.

  1. I do believe that a much higher percentage of these are actually wimmne than is usually the case w/these Leon poats.

  2. wimmen even.

  3. Best half-post published thus far today.

  4. I don’t know how Lauraw is going to take this.

  5. Thank you Leon!

  6. I’m not going to enable her psychological problems by kowtowing to them.

  7. Where’s MJ? I have a question to ask him.

  8. m not going to enable her psychological problems by kowtowing to them.

    Well, that’s good you’re being upfront about your approach. You should expect the flying monkeys around noonish.

  9. Oh good, just in time for some post-lifting cardio.

    Work time.

  10. I’m here, was sup?

  11. Today is Mini-me’s birthday. Yes, I made the truffles she requested.

  12. *head slooooowly spins 360 degrees*

    Gamermam.

  13. You’re a good Mom, Romy.

    *ends candlelight vigil*

  14. It was the out she gave me that really galvanized me. “I know you’re tired, Mom, it’s okay if you don’t make them.” Accompanied by a look like this:

  15. G’morning.

    Coffee….

    And a hug for Mini-Me.

  16. Hi
    Howru?

  17. MJ – how is the swimming going?? I can swim a mile – no problem.I just can’t do it all freestyle.

    Oye. Backstroke – sure thing.

    I read up this morning on how to work my breathing better – so I’ll try it today.

  18. Just got an email. Ethan’s team won the tournament. They had four games, won the first three and tied the fourth. Had to replay the fourth team for the championship (that team had won two games, lost one, and tied one – us). anyway, we started the championship game, but then lightening delayed the game.

    The other team started bitching after about 20 min (there is a 30 min from last lightening strike rule) and they decided to do penalty kicks to determine the winner. The other team won that . @@

    The coach was PISSED when they decided to do the PKs,because that’s not how it’s done. HUGE amounts of anger – which – you know – it’s just a game.

    Anyway, Just got an email and the tournament director realized they had violated their own rules, and that we won – because we had a better record and more “points (which is determined by goals you score, and how many are score against you).

    Long boring story. But Mare would like it.

    If she were HERE.

  19. Accompanied by a look like this:

    Awww, ha ha. Diabolical, she is.

  20. WTF

    Three wins and a tie beat two wins a loss and a tie in any sport.

    Fucking soccer moms.

  21. Anyone thought of the irony of Obama’s inauguration stage and the current plight of Greece?

  22. The team that was bitching was this COMPLETELY Hispanic team out of Pontiac (??) Spoke Spanish for the entire game. We were wondering how you get a travel team that’s all Hispanic?

    You put your try-out notices in spanish. Duh, right?

    they were a very aggressive, competitive team. Couldn’t stand losing to the gringos. When the game was called dead, they complained because that meant we won. Thus, they bitched and cried, and they decided on the fly to do the Penalty kicks.

    Which is ok for a tie finish. But to determine the winner of a game/tournament? Not so much.

  23. roamy how tall is mini-me, i need someone to get under the couch top get my remote

  24. This is why soccer is far fags.

  25. Mornin’, all –

    Happy Birthday to Mini-Me! Just think, Roamy, that means that she is one year closer to being a teenager! (Mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha….)

    VMan, that sucks about all of your lawn equipment getting stolen. Maybe you should get a goat.
    (On second thought, they might steal that, too – “cabrito”, y’know….)

    Car in, congrats to Ethan and his team! It’s great that the other team wasn’t allowed to cheat their way to victory.

    It’s Primary Day in Texas, so we’ll be casting our votes later today.

  26. and what the hell are truffles (once again proving how white trash ignorant i am)

  27. Roamy?

    ————————————-
    My first class is tonight, but it’s probably going to rain. I think I’ll be ok.

    If you can swim a mile, you’ll be fine for the triathlon.

  30. roamy how tall is mini-me, i need someone to get under the couch top get my remote

    Perhaps MJ could be of service?

  31. YOU didn’t answer, MJ. How far can you freestyle? Yikes.

    I think I’m doing it wrong. My breathing is off or something.

  32. Loads chicken cannon and aims at Florida.

  33. Hotspurt, you don’t really consider soccer to be a sport, do you?

  34. car in, have you ever had swimming instruction or been on a swim team?

  35. I”ve always been a strong swimmer. Grew up on a lake, etc. I briefly was on a swim team in middle school. and, yep, I’ve had lessons.

    I’ve just never been instructed on how to swim a mile.

  36. Where do you breathe on your freestyle stroke and how often?

  37. Plus, it’s been a while.

    I got my diving license when I was 13 or so, and the course made me pass all sorts of swimming endurance tests.

    I’ve just never had to do freestyle for that long.

  38. I *think* my problem is that I’m only breathing on one side. I read an article that said I should be 3-stroking and switching sides.

  39. I think there is a low-hanging-fruit dealio in there .

  40. Car in, when swimming for distance, I would do the 3-stroke thing but I always breathe to my right. I haven’t swam for distance since college.

  41. Two stroke, breath is obviously too much, but I get short-winded going four strokes. Three strokes. I’m going to try it on my next swim. See if I can get into a rhythm and relax.

  42. I can’t remember how many times I had to walk across the pool until the breathing at the same point in my stroke became automatic. I stopped competitive swimming in HS because I hated what Fly and Breast (LHFA) were doing to my back and shoulders.

  43. I read an article that said I should be 3-stroking and switching sides.

    The same one that xbrad and rosetta read, it seems.

  44. what’s up muh ninjas!

    HOWDY AGILEDOG!!!!!!!!!

  45. THERE it is. I knew one of you could to it.

  46. Hotspurt, you don’t really consider soccer to be a sport, do you?

    Actually, no, and Carin’s experience over the weekend proves what a metrosexual ghey sport it is. I mean, putting time back on the clock? Ghey. Calling 3-0-1 the same as 2-1-1. Ghey. Calling for a shoot out when a storm is coming? Ghey.

    Ghey, ghey, ghey.

  47. They didn’t call it the same. We would have just won outright, but they decided that the two best teams met in a playoff game.

    Then the reffs on the field made a bad call.

    I do like the sport.

    *sticks out tongue at all of you

  48. I knew one of you could to it.

    We would hate to disappoint.

  49. Howdy, PJM!

    Find any new fabrics we should all know about? :-)

  50. YOU didn’t answer, MJ. How far can you freestyle? Yikes.
    ——————-
    I don’t know. I’m guessing I can freestyle about a half mile, based on time. I stroke three times SYWM, then breathe.

  51. Hotspurt, to me, soccer mostly appears to be an incubator for lezbos … with apologies to softball for stealing the crown from them.

  52. I do like the sport.

    Yeah? How often do YOU play? :-)

    What can you expect from a “sport” using a ball and 20+ guys, and only two of them can use their hands to “play”?

  53. There’s a stroke technique (your whore mouths, shut them) class on Sunday. I have to go to that before I can get into the tri class.

  54. Maybe Carin wants me to give her stroke lessons.

  55. proves what a metrosexual ghey sport it is

    bwahahaha hahaha

  56. agiledog, I’m making you an ottoman as we speak

  57. I’m not German.

  58. And I don’t WANT to be German.

    I like being american

  59. Maybe Carin wants me to give her stroke lessons.

    Shouldn’t xbrad be doing that?

  60. PJM – I’m waiting for a new leather couch to be delivered (what is this 6 to 8 weeks bullshit, anyways? Don’t you fools have warehouses?). So no sheep skin fabrics – only cow hide.

    I am somewhat concerned with what my Cattle Dogs will do when they smell a leather couch.

  61. So no sheep goat skin fabrics

    Fixed it for Peej.

  62. Hey Car in, it would be totally ironic if you drowned during the swimming portion of the tri, since the only reason you’re doing it is because your hubby said the mudder is too dangerous. That’ll show him!!!!!

  63. So the meme from the left on the weekend shows seems to be that private industry is about creating wealth, of which, jobs are a byproduct. Are they just learning this?

    Obama is going to have a press conference today to announce that water is wet.

  64. There’s a stroke technique (your whore mouths, shut them) class on Sunday. I have to go to that before I can get into the tri class.

    What is this class bullshit?

    Haven’t they figured out enough way to make us pay to exercise with the participation fees and overpriced equipment?

    I ain’t taking no class. I may die on the bike ride, but at least I’ll know I saved Mr Car In some money.

  65. Hey Car in, it would be totally ironic if you drowned during the swimming portion of the tri, since the only reason you’re doing it is because your hubby said the mudder is too dangerous. That’ll show him!!!!!

    Yea, good thing the swimming part is so totally safe, given that you’re starting in a crowd in open water.

  66. oh it’ll be cow hide, but I get to pick what color it gets dyed

  67. Any color at all, as long as it is brown.

  68. ok. it’ll be brown cow hide, but I get to pick the pattern.

    sheesh, so demanding

  69. Yep, better wear water wings.

  70. Obama is going to have a press conference today to announce that water is wet.

    He is not that bright.

  71. Maybe an inflatable sports bra?

  72. but I get to pick the pattern.

    Holstein.

  73. Lunch break. BBL.

  76. reading about that “flame” hack… pretty interesting stuff. Can turn the computer’s mic on to listen to things being said in the vacinity etc..hehe nasty basterds.

  77. I don’t know her name. I wish I did, but she wouldn’t tell me when I asked. Unless her name is “SECURITY!”. Which I doubt, mostly.

    that made me laugh

  78. CARIN!!!

    Perfect!

  79. Peej, why don’t you do a triathlon with me?

  80. Good morning, back to workers.

  81. >> I do like the sport.

    No shit?

  82. Obama is going to have a press conference today to announce that water is wet.

    BREAKING NEWS: Water no longer wet

  83. Obama is going to have a press conference today to announce that water is wet.

    well, if anyone could fuck that up, it would be Obama.

  84. Apparently DD#3 didn’t get the memo that we lock the front door to keep Rebecca IN…..

  85. Banning Mare???

    I blame MARE!

  86. I DID like Carin’s story! Winners!!!!

  87. Ban mare? You can’t handle the TRUTH!

  88. * in Jack Nickleson voice

  89. Mare – are you still on vacation ? Because the banning will continue until you’re home.

  90. well, if anyone could fuck that up, it would be Obama.

    BREAKING NEWS: Obama announces mare banned from H2

  91. I’m away from home for another month. Is everyone here still healthy? Any horribleness happen the last couple weeks (besides Obama’s assholeishness)?

  92. ? Any horribleness happen the last couple weeks (besides Obama’s assholeishness)?

    Oh … LOTS AND LOTS have happened. You have missed so much.

    There were the recipes … and the workout tips. DIETING advice. I didn’t ‘mention my chickens too much.

    What else? Anyone.

    Srsly, sometimes commenter Harrison passed away.

  93. Mare who?

    IS SHE LOOSE?, causing havoc?, is she OK?

  95. While picking up my oldest at the airport a woman was waiting tor someone holding a lei of mini Jagermeister bottles… out walks this tall-bald-goateed douche. It took me a minute to put the probabilities to a rational level.

  96. MARE!

  99. Discussion topic: How much did Justin Bieber bribe a photographer to claim that Bieber roughed him up?

  100. No kidding, Can you imagine claiming Justin Bieber roughed you up? The police: Justin Bieber? Seriously?

  101. He said ‘roughed up’ but meant ‘felt up,’ right?

  102. Pop Star Justin Bieber Investigated for imPossible Misdemeanor Battery After Alleged Paparazzi Scuffle

    FTFTheBlaze.

  103. I cannot even imagine Justin Bieber actually wearing male clothes.

  104. They’ve released a photo of the paparazzo in question…

  105. Justin Bieber is real? I thought he was a made up thing.

  106. Video from Justin Boober fight:

  107. MJ isnt Boober a Canadian robotix experiment gone horribly wrong?

  108. The fact that MJ had a “My Pretty Pony” fight scene link handy is fairly scary.

  109. There is definitely something wrong with my sinuseseseses. I ate some pumpkin seeds earlier and they tasted like floor cleaner.

    I just stretched and got a whiff of my ‘baby powder’ flavored deodorant. It smells like watermelon Jolly Ranchers. WTF?

    That or I’ve had a stroke.

  110. html failure! oops!

  111. Trying again:

    I like this photo of my crazy dog.

  112. beasn, have your prostate checked. It may be prostate cancer. Or boils.

  113. Although this oneshows her jumping skills better.

  114. Shingles. Sounds like Shingles.

  115. a whiff of my ‘baby powder’ flavored deodorant

    They “flavor” deodorant? Is that for the folks who have gone beyond eating paste?

  116. How do you know what floor cleaner tastes like, beasn?

  117. Beta is a nifty critter, AD.

  118. Dang, it’s getting warm down here for May. Mid-90s. I had to turn on my air conditioners.

  119. Same here, Michael. But it has been unseasonably warm here for months.

  120. That or I’ve had a stroke.
    ————————–
    Ask Mr Beasn to fart directly in your face. If you follow through with it, you’ve had a stroke.

  121. How do you know what floor cleaner tastes like, beasn?

    I don’t. It tastes like the smell.

  122. MJ, why do you want me dead?

    My olfactory is extremely sensitive.

  123. agiledog, your pup is pretty awesome.

  124. Thanks, laura. We were at a 3-day AKC agility show this weekend – we qualified in 2 of our 6 events, and took 4th in one of them. Beta is a big hit at the AKC trials cause of her tail – it is pretty unique.

    On July 13, 14 and 15, the USDAA Regional Agility Qualifier will be held north of you in Greenfield, MA (right up 91 for you). It will be a huge show, especially Saturday and Sunday. If you have some time, come see us (and probably about 200+ other dogs) in action.

  125. I don’t. It tastes like the smell.

    That’s why I don’t eat broccoli or cauliflower.

    The same principle does not apply to cheeses.

  126. Our pond is covered with frog eggs. This has never happened before.

  127. You know what is weird, I have started sounding like my MiL. Beasnette got hired at our competitor and it really brightened what was a super shitty day. (I worry – will she get a job, she’s so shy, will she flunk the interview, she has a scholarship – so technically she doesn’t need a summer job, but she will need spending money because it’s time for her to fledge….etc)

    “oh, beasnette, I’m so happy. Good for you. You save your money and hopefully you will graduate with no debt either.”

    I say those things now, with a German accent. My MiL is extremely frugal. It has always been about working and saving and not buying stupid shit you don’t need, with her.

    With the economic conditions and commies in charge, I worry and plan like her (though will indulge myself on occasion with something she would frown upon). It’s still a good thing beasnette inherited the trait.

  128. Broccoli tastes better than it’s smell.

  129. How do you know those are frog eggs?

  130. Our pond is covered with frog eggs

    I’m sure lauraw can come up with a recipe for them….

  131. Women have an unassailable right to abortion, right up to, and including live-birth.

    But somehow it’s horrific if the woman has an abortion because she doesn’t want the baby if it’s a girl.

    Makes sense to me.

  132. MiL disclaimer – she is that way with good reason. She lived through the war and came here as ‘displaced person’.

  133. Yeah, you can fry up those frog eggs, throw in a little onion, tomato, cilantro and rosemary. It will be great.

  134. Hotspur, that shit is pure evil.

  135. Hey Beasn, maybe it’s a brain injury. Check the mirror, maybe you have a nail or an icepick or something sticking out the back of your head. Can you play the piano now? Maybe you have some supernatural abilities…….

  136. Low to mid 90s is pretty much normal for here at the end of May. June always seems tougher on me tha, August, even though August is hotter. Not sure if it’s because June is more humid or maybe it’s just that by August I’m used to it.

    Dave, thoughts on a Texas August

    “It’s hot again today *shrugs*. Big deal.”

  137. No icepicks, pepe. Just weird sinuses that swell up and put pressure on my brains or something. Grass and mold don’t like me.

    Don’t have a piano to try.

  138. Oh nice. Effing blood sucking insects.

  139. Wrap those sauteed frog eggs in a corn tortilla. I forgot to mention that.

  140. Maybe you have a lima bean or something in your sinuses that you stuck up there as a kid. Dave will be glad to look for it. Just make sure he’s using his good eye.

    We’ve got a ton of smoke here from a forest fire, cough cough. My sinuses will be screwed up tonight.

  141. Any of you guys go to the Blade show in Atlanta?

  142. So,

    – I can’t handle the responsibility of a child right now
    – Keep your laws off my body
    – It’s a woman’s right to choose
    – I don’t want to raise a baby with disabilities
    – etc.

    Those are all okay. But,

    – I only want a baby boy (or could be girl in cases)

    Is not okay.

    Really?

  143. Wrap those sauteed frog eggs in a corn tortilla. I forgot to mention that.

    No corn! I’m doing primal diet! Sheesh.

    *looks up no-grain tadpole recipes*

  144. IS SHE LOOSE?, causing havoc?, is she OK?

    Yeah – luckily I saw the front door closing as I was opening up the back door to let her attendant in.

    Since it’s summertime, she was still in her nightgown; apparently she decided she wanted to dig in the yard, ‘cuz she had a little tiny scoop in her hands.

    Never a dull moment with that one….. :P

  145. I hope MCPO wasn’t on a golf course today, they just got hammered.

    It might rain a little later http://classic.wunderground.com/radar/mixedcomposite.asp?region=a5&size=2x&type=loop

  146. A life without corn tortillas is not really worth living.

  147. Those are all okay. But,
    – I only want a baby boy (or could be girl in cases)
    Is not okay.
    Really?

    Yes.
    And also remember that the Republicans are waging a War on Women.

    Now shut up and parrot the party line, you knuckle-dragging troglodyte…..

    In other words, literally “primal” soup.

  149. you knuckle-dragging troglodyte

    So you’ve actually meet Hotspur in person, huh?

  150. yep

  151. Hail, rain, thunder and lightening! Luckily, I got the round in.

  152. Is it okay to abort a gay fetus?

    That’s always been my favorite question for supporters of on-demand infanticide.

  153. “I hope MCPO wasn’t on a golf course today, they just got hammered.”

    I thought you were supposed to get hammered on the golf course.

  154. Pepe – I don’t drink booze when I’m playing for $$.

  155. Just make sure the guys you’re playing do. ;-)

  156. Drinking killed the poat? That’s a first.

  157. Had to unplug. . . wicked line of thunderstorms!

  158. Is it okay to abort a gay fetus?

    Honestly, I think that might be the ONLY thing that would get some of these pro-abortion folks to finally wake up.

    Every other kind of abortion is A-OK, but that might be a bridge too far.

  159. Warnings are up for us MCPO. I am looking forward to saying goodbye to this damn heat.

  160. Maybe you have a lima bean or something in your sinuses that you stuck up there as a kid.

    IT WAS A BUTTON. I WAS FOUR!

    The doctors removed it then.

  161. A primal diet? You only eat 1, 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, . . . servings of pudding a day?

  162. Scott – 2.7″ of rain in 2 hours. Temp dropped from 87F to 66F!

  163. Chief, you guys must be getting what we got late last night – sent Rebecca running into our room…..

  164. TiFW – I’m just happy it killed the heat and humidity! When I got home, temperature was 87F, with a real-feel temp of 97F.

  170. It WAS 97, but has since plummeted to 91. And humid. I’m not used to humid.

    Anybody miss me?

  171. You mean to tell me that skinny blonde chica is Sohos?

  172. Jessica Biel is my girl crush

    Me too! OMG we’re like twinz!

  173. Ted, who IS that girl walking the aisle? She’s….hypnotic.

  174. All the heat has burnt up the coolant in my altima, I have to take the truck and go buy some.

  175. So, at Kennesaw yesterday, a rather minor battleground.

    Tons of folks there. But for them, it’s a park to walk in.

    Me? I could hear the old ones speak.

    Both sides.

    The polite version was “earn this…”

    The real version was “why have you fucked it up?”

  183. Hey, with thunder, and possibly lightening, in the area, I recommend the pool.

  184. I vote for whiskey

  185. I COULD drink whiskey IN the pool…

  204. **pins down Sean. Forces him to snort some bath salts**

  205. I see that I am late as usual. MJ has already made the bath salt joke.

  206. I’d snort some bath salts and eat Tushar’sface, but I prefer white meat.

  207. Leon,
    I’m with Dave. If it ain’t the thermostat, it’s gonna be expensive. A thermostat and gasket is your best (cheapest) bet.

  208. **hoists a bourbon in your honor**

    Heh.

  209. If it’s a water pump bearing, most pumps have a “weephole” where the water runs out, to clearly show ya it’s the pump.

    At least they did in 1978. I don’t know what the fuck they do now.

  210. Freaking smoke. Couch, cough, rubs eyes. Visibility down to a mile. This sucks donkey balls.

  211. Thermostat’s probably fine, Dave. I’ve got a slow leak somewhere, and should have been checking the coolant level. It may still have been too hot from the drive home. I’m going to take a bin out and empty out the car tomorrow.

    If the temp isn’t steady on my drive to work, I’m taking a very long lunch and buying a new car tomorrow. It’s time.

  212. Now they send you emails. Check your inbox.

  213. Not an olympic event, but impressive.

  214. Oh yeah, check the spam bucket too. Some email accounts don’t trust cars

  215. I love a parade!

  216. I’ma make a Texas Senate prediction here, Dewhurst wins with more than 50%, no runoff.

    Honestly, this is where me and the Tea Partiers butt heads.. they go after reasonably solid conservatives, who will legislate the way we want 97%, for another 2.7%

    Reasonable, and a solid winner in November. I ain’t talkin about Dick Lugar, but I am talkin about Orrin Hatch. Sheesh.

    Do I think Dewhurst is the purest conservative evah? No. Will I lay awake at night wondering about his votes? No.

  217. Yep, some of those girls are amazing. Tons of core strength.

  218. I wonder if pole dancing can cause coregasms.

    I may need to do some anthropological field research. I should apply grants from NIH, HHS, FDA, and DARPA.

  219. Mmmmmmmmmm core strength.

  220. DinT – More importantly, does Dewhurst understand why he is being primaried from the right?

  221. I think Mare broke it.

  222. I skipped the pool.

    Chillin’ out watching SWAT. What a cheezey movie.

    Probably, if I watch them long enoug… ;-)

  224. Dewhurst’s opponent is a lawyer. That’s all I know about this race because all of dewhurst’s ads mention about 75 times in a 30 second spot that his opponent is “Lawyer Ted Cruz”.

    I worked 14 hours in the least populated county in the US today and neglected to vote

  225. I drove with mom from ATL to BHM and didn’t even get a strong urge to strangle her.

  226. Hi Mare!

  227. Xbad,
    What are you doing out there? Some family function?

  228. Well I may be proven wrong.. Dewhurst hasn’t moved the needle with another 10% precincts reporting.

    MCPO, I have no idea what he knows, but I doubt he feels as if he’s being “primaried from the right.” a) He is not an incumbent US Senator, b) he’s been a popular Lt. Gov with huge wins in past elections, and c) Ted Cruz is not a witch.

    As far as we know.

  229. Just visiting family here in B’ham. ATL was my dad’s 67th H/S reunion. Mom’s still friends with most of the surviving members of the class, so off to the luncheon.

  230. DinT – Knew he wasn’t an incumbent, but as a LtGov, it must have been somewhat of a shock that he didn’t waltz through this thing.

  231. I don’t know why it would come as a shock to him, he’s been hammering Cruz with negative ads for 2 months.

    In a power vacuum we have runoffs. This is a power vacuum.

  232. I. Hate. Birmingham.

    pure. hatred.

  233. Well, technically, I’m in Mountain Brook.

    It’s not like I’m willing to hang out downtown.

  234. Well, shit. T-storm knocked out SWAT.

    But not my internet.

    **downloads busty lesbian pron**

  235. I can point to two specific companies based in Birmingham as the beginning of the pure fucking hell that my life has become over the last decade.

  236. but I’m not bitter….

  237. I’ve never been to Birmingham.

  238. HealthSouth and KP?

  239. Oso, B’ham isn’t really on anyones “must see” list.

  240. Thanks for the heads up, XB.

  241. HealthSouth and KP?

    Close.

    HS and one of their “oh, we don’t own them *snicker*” subsidiaries.

  242. Huntsville area is decent though.

  243. As is Auburn.

  244. Well, I”m not even driving by the HS campus this trip. Don’t hate me for being here.

    And eating BBQ.

  245. The restored statue of Vulcan that overlooks Birmingham is pretty cool lookin.

  246. PLUS Alabama has the fine Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail, so there’s that, too.

  247. You know, if you break my heart I’ll go
    But I’ll be derp again.

  248. Gah! Still can’t sleep. Been watching some episodes of Grimm on nbc.com.

    Really like that show. Which means it will be cancelled very soon.

  249. Wakey wakey

    congrats on Sean making it 9 months – woo hoo.

  250. WSJ:

    Mr. Obama’s great political talent has been his knack for granting his admirers permission to think highly of themselves for thinking highly of him. The self-approval of his supporters is the engine of his political rise, albeit married to the kind of hardball that drove his two most formidable rivals out of the 2004 Senate race in divorce-related scandals.

  251. People who look at Obama and see ‘cool’ or ‘smart’ just wanted to see that in themselves. That is now demonstrably false, so hopefully he won’t get their vote again.

  252. What about his dog eating base?

  253. A poodle in every pot.

  254. I watched a bit of that Medal of Freedom ceremony yesterday, and Bob DYlan didn’t look too impressed with the deal.

    Obama was very impressed with himself, and his speech-a-fying. Laughing and smirking at his own jokes.

    He’s just incredible.

  255. Poodles are gamey.

  256. The whole purpose of Obama’s candidacy was to so impoverish the nation that we would all be forced to eat our pets.

  257. The dog eating base has been fractured. Suburban dogs aren’t being eaten at the pace of white, working class, religious, pro-gay marriage, anti-immigration dogs.

    THE DOG EATING VOTE IS NOT RELIABLE!

  258. The order in which I would eat my pets:

    Chickens
    cats
    dogs

    I’m sure the dogs would taste better, but I like them more than I like the cats.

  259. I’d like to start with the horses, but I have the feeling that’d get vetoed.

  260. Who goes first? Mr Carin, you, or the kids?

  261. I don’t know if this is getting any national attention, but somethign fishy occurred with Thaddeus McCotters petitions (signatures) to get on the primary. He’s going to have to go as a “write in.”

    I’m leaning toward sabotage.

  262. Who goes first? Mr Carin, you, or the kids?

    Well, I think i’d go for the neighbor’s first. I live off of a major road, so I could probably come up with some sort of “stranded motorist” scam and bring some food to the table that way before we’d have to go cannibal on each other.

    Clap clap clap. Nice slogan.

    Elitist. Who can afford to eat poodle these days?

  265. Let’s talk swimming Car in. I watched a bunch of videos on proper technique last night.

  266. Do tell.

    I got advice from a swimming friend too.

  267. I watched one … hip movement (SYWM) and being “slippery” in the water.

  268. Well, I don’t know anything about swimming so it was kind of new to me that your roll your body from side to side, arms in at 90 degrees to pull the water back, ear on shoulder to breathe every three strokes.

  269. IIRC, Artur Davis was the Dem Congressman in Roamy’s neck of the woods who flipped to GOP in a bid to stay in office. He failed.

    But now he’s left the national Dem party. Now, I’m pretty cynical about motives, but I have to admit, the guy’s blog is pretty interesting. He may not be a right winging, Paul Ryan type, but he certainly seems to express himself on his blog better than most.

    How sad is it that the fact he can write a coherent sentence raises him above many of his peers?

  270. I think I just need to learn to RELAX while I freestyle. I’m used to the sprinting idea … go as fast as you can, and not trying to do it for a LONG time.

  271. I’m also used to breathing just whenever I darn well feel like it.

  272. I was always taught to extend and elongate. MJ is right about the roll, 90, stroke count, and mouth to shoulder.

  273. I forget what all I had to do to pass the Class I swim test in college. MCPO surely took the same test, so maybe he recalls. But it seems to me there was a half mile swim in it. Since that was before smoking took a toll on my endurance, it was pretty easy. I think I did about a quarter mile of freestyle, before remembering that it wasn’t a timed event, and switching to a leisurely side-stroke.

    I *do* remember that we had to do a 50 meter rescue swim. That is, 50m out, secure the drowning victim, and return. GySgt Cantu was my drowning victim- and he as a BIG sonofabitch. And he was “struggling” mighty fiercely. So on the way back, instead of putting my arm across his chest to drag him, I put him in a choke hold. He settled down nicely.

    My guess is that relaxing into it is key. Kind of like keeping a pace while running, no?

    Hahahahahahahahaha.

  277. Get slippery, move those hips, mouth to shoulder, relax……..

    Are you sure you’re talkin’ ’bout swimmen?

  278. Whoops, left out the stroking!

  279. Yea, I had to do a rescue to get my diving license. I was 13 or 14. It included performing mouth to mouth while treading water.

  280. My guess is that relaxing into it is key. Kind of like keeping a pace while running, no?

    Yea, a nice pace. I need to find that. I mean, after all there is a 25 mile bike ride and 6 mile run following that swim.

  281. Good morning cool kids.

  282. Side stroke! Scott was right! Do you have a kick board?

  283. Anybody expect to get shipped off to a Polish Death Camp today?

  284. Well, i’m not trying to win the thing, but I’d prefer to not be last.

  285. For the first one, I could care less where I finish. Just want to have fun.

  286. POAT OF NEWNESS…

  287. For the first one, I could care less where I finish. Just want to have fun.

    I do want to finish , but my ego makes me not want to finish last.
