  1. I love jelly toast!

    But it depends on the jelly.

    And the bread.

  2. oooo, cyn is gonna kick you’re ass for not removing the links from the images…..

  3. heh heh heh..

    I see that got fixed quickly…..

  4. Wiser, you say that as if I know what I’m doing.

  5. Heh. I probably already got them by the time you finished typing that Wiser.

    Oh well. I due to give a good spanking anyways.

  6. Cyn can kick my ass anytime she wants.

  7. ‘Spur, there is a slight homage to you in the post. It may take you all day to find it, but it’s their.

  8. Oh well. I due to give a good spanking anyways.

    Line forms to the left….

  9. Cute baby with cute crazy baby hair has redeemed you, Ghee. But c’mere anyways since I already put on my spanking pumps and tiara.

  10. “c’mere anyways since I already put on my spanking pumps and tiara.’

    *hastens chauffeur to pack shit for Arizona for scheduled meeting with Cyn*

  11. Hahahahaha

    You guys hate me.

  12. what is this removal of links of which you speak and why should I do it

  13. If XBrad were a cop

  14. sitting on a demo with a group that is looking at our software.

    They want our system to handle their inventory, because the other system they have doesn’t do that.

    Obnoxious scrunt on call is demanding that, basically, our software get written into their current system’s code, so they never have to go into our software to do anything.

    “If it can’t do that, then it doesn’t solve our problem….”

    Ummm, bitch? If your current software doesn’t have an inventory component, how in the FUCK do you expect to do your inventory data entry into that system?

    I fucking hate pushy semi-intelligent know-it-alls…

  15. no offense, hotspur

  16. Good morning, paste-eaters.

  17. pace teeters?

  18. pay steeters

  19. ‘no offense, hotspur’

    *laughs just hard enough to squirt a little pee into the front of my britches… cusses Wiser*

  20. pays to eat her

  21. pasty ers

  22. what is this removal of links of which you speak and why should I do it

    *whimpers, sighs, reaches for the Blue Meth™ extra-strength capsules*

  23. wow.

    They don’t want us to show them the capabilities of the system now. They want us to set up a dummy database for them so they can “play with it”.

    without even seeing the system, much less being trained on it.

    Yeah, that will go well…..

    fucking idiots.

  24. My wife called yesterday afternoon to say that dinner was ready and I asked what it was and she said she had prepared a ‘Super Hot Italian Treat’. I caught on to the acronym only after sitting down and sampling the first bite. God love her.

  25. I already dealt with shit today. And puke. And piss.

    Trifecta.

  26. and she said she had prepared a ‘Super Hot Italian Treat’

    Ha – for a second there, I thought this blog was gonna go Rated X.

  27. Kewl! Turns out it’s cousin Dolly.

  28. Jeez Wiser, if a system is any good, it should be intuitive. Training is overrated.

  29. Testing

    Why won’t this POS site allow me to comment?

  30. Every morning it’s the same crap with this site:

    Sorry you are unable to comment. Yeah, thanks sherlock.

  31. Mare isn’t getting the hint.

    Someone’s just going to have to tell her.

    *sigh

    I was hoping it wouldn’t come to this.

  32. Jeez Wiser, if a system is any good, it should be intuitive. Training is overrated.

    I usually gently explain that we try to avoid giving people access to the system without training them, because when they get lost or confused because they haven’t been trained, they blame the software.

    But this woman? Here ya go. Have a party.

  33. Wow, Cruz must scare the crap out of lefties. He must be doing the good and right thing.

  34. They don’t want us to show them the capabilities of the system now. They want us to set up a dummy database for them so they can “play with it”.

    Behold the power of this fully operational software!

  35. Well, I certainly see other applications for that software.

  36. Shit. I should have used that gif for BBF tomorrow.

    I don’t know why I waste my best stuff on making fun of wiserbud.

  37. It’s awesome that there is a tag on this blog labeled “supersonic faggotronic.”

  38. Cruz must scare the crap out of lefties.

    If by lefties you mean Rove and the Bushies, yes.

  39. I don’t know why I waste my best stuff on making fun of wiserbud.

    ’cause I’m worth it.

  40. I think they’re a little freaked out because most of the Rethuglican starting team picks off a section of the base that the Dems absolutely must have and they’re relatively young.

    They’re going to have Biden (full blown retard, 70) and Hillary (full blown Cee You Next Tuesday, 70) running in 2016.

  41. MJ, they might get Howard Dean. He’s sure to bring the young people.

    It’s freaking me out that Cruz is only 5 years older than me.

  42. 3 years away, and the lefties are starting the attack. If they don’t find anything, they’ll make something up. Just keep throwing out wild accusations until you find one that gets traction, then hammer it forever. Don’t stop with that one, keep throwing out shit, and DEMONIZE!!!!!! When the LIVs go to vote, all they’ll remember is the stupid allegation.

  43. In 2016 there will be Rethuglican debates held entirely in Spanish.

    Biden and Hillary will be over 70, talking exclusively about the past. In semi-retard English, no less.

  44. Easy prediction: certain voices in the right-wing media (cough Medved Rove etc. cough) will tell us in December 2016 that Chris Christie was the only person who could have defeated Hillary! Clinton, but this was just her inevitable year, and Republican primary voters should not apologize for having nominated the losing Christie.

  45. Well, just gave the washing machine repair guy a thrill. Didn’t know he was coming. i’m wearing a white t, no bra.

    Hello.

  46. hello

  47. Stop calling me, Dave.

    OR, for Hotspur,

    Stop calling me Dave.

  48. Cue cheesy porn music:

    C: I need a man with a big tool……………
    Repair Man: ??????

  49. Car in is now responsible for generating a fine letter, to be published in Penthouse Forum.

  50. Biden and Hillary will be over 70, talking exclusively about the past. In semi-retard English, no less.

    Also note that no one will bring up age, as was done with Reagan and McCain. Probably Dole too, just can’t remember.

    Hmm, I wonder what those 3 things have in common.

  51. hold the phone a little lower

  52. I was a waitress at a small midwestern restaurant…

  53. I can fix a washing machine.

  54. “Here, Miss Car in. Fixed. Let’s test the machine with something. How about that white t-shirt?”

  55. Of course, we didn’t have the part to repair the machine, because Mr Car in took the box (mailed to the house) to work last week. I saw the box when I got home around 11:45 last friday – by the time I get up it’s gone. I figure it if was my part, it would have been returned home. Since it never came back I guessed it was something for work.

    Nope.

    Strangely, the repair man did not seem at all upset that his trip to my house was a waste of his time.

    Weird.

  56. At least Car in played it cool instead of saying “My mattress is broken. Could you please check it out?”

  57. Is it just me or does it seem like fixing the washing machine has probably been more expensive than say, buying a new washing machine. Or possibly sending someone to the moon.

    It’s like every other month.

    Also, have you considered just smelling like shit? That can be less expensive.

  58. Look Mr Mouse ears, the old washer I repaired (myself) for about a year until I bought a new one WITH A COMPLETE five-year fix-it plan.

    So this is coasting me nothing.

    Except my pride when I opened that door with no bra.

  59. Except my pride when I opened that door with no bra.

    I should have called texted you to tell you I wasn’t coming. Sorry ’bout that.

  60. Diabetic kitty apparently needs more insulin after meals. One unit of insulin is approximately $1, so bringing him to 2 units after meals makes him a $4/day habit, before counting all his food and other stuff. I hate this crap.

  61. 3 years away, and the lefties are starting the attack.

    It’s all they can do. They certainly have done nothing worth defending.

  62. Sorry about your kitty, Leon.

    It’s a shame – I had the pillows all ready.

  69. So demolition has begun. Right now they are chipping away some awful topcoat on the driveway prior to sandblasting. We should have new concrete by the first week in September. Atrium now empty except for dirt. I’m doing my part, which consists of a Murcielago cheroot smoked by the Reservoir of Hate, and sexting you motards on this fine blog.

  70. Wow, talk about low hanging fruit…

  71. “unbelievably handsome man”

    I printed that out and pasted it on the bathroom mirror. Of course, my wife uses that mirror as well, so this may not be well received.

    Not cool using Dave’s pic as yours.

    So if we came over there to party, there’d be no cleaning up. Wooo Hooo!

  84. I’ve been thinking about encrypted e-mail lately, but there is no convenient solution until your recipients all get RSA pairs and publish public keys. GPG looks very simple to use except all your correspondents must use it too.

  85. She hasn’t aged terribly well, George.

    And that’s one of the better recent pics.

  86. She hasn’t aged terribly well, George.

    Oh my. Well, I just liked the poster.

  87. >> Heck of a post at Ace’s, Dave. Well done!

    Thanks. I was trying to address the stigmatizing but I sorta mucked it up. Ah well, awareness is more important.

    *finger-gun kapow kapow @ Cyn*

  88. Oh, I liked the poster. And there are some pics of her from the 80s that are quite, quite nice.

    But it’s not like Helen Mirren, who keeps getting better.

    Some people just shouldn’t get Botox.

    Saw my fair share of it at my HS reunion – some were very subtle, but more than a few had the deer-in-the-headlights look all night long…..

  92. I went to one HS reunion. A real waste of time. The only interesting thing was seeing how different people aged differently.

  93. On days when I do not work, it is still difficult to relax and not feel guilty. Especially now that I’m a owner of Hell House.

  100. President Barack Obama flubbed the mayor of Buffalo’s name, calling him Brian Higgins instead of Byron Brown.

    Clearly the man deserves a second Nobel Prize for this.

  101. San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has agreed to resign as part of a deal reached this week with city officials NBC 7 News has learned.

    Filner, spotted leaving City Hall with packing boxes Wednesday night, will formally vacate the office following a closed session of City Council Friday according to several sources.

    Come on, San Diego. It’s only sex. At least Bob isn’t a rapist like Hillary Clinton’s husband.

    Check with Dave.

  132. Ok, got my bib and t-shirt for the Crim. Erin is running it with me. Saturday at 8 am.

    I also picked up a new running skirt. YEA. Got Erin one too. Those pre-race fairs are the best place to pick up running stuff.

    I prefer to run in a straw cowboy hat and a sequined thong. Do they sell either ?

  135. Sean, sorry about that. I did not realize you would click a link blindly when the words ‘NAKED BREASTFEEDING’ are staring at you.

  136. Sean, I added a warning. Now don’t click it again.

  137. Okay, looks like his glucose was just high when we took it, his fructosamine was in a healthy range, so it was probably just that he’d gotten into the kitten’s food that morning. But he needs a pill for his liver, so I probably need a mortar and pestle.

    I didn’t see any, but I have to admit I didn’t really look.

    My one son was with me, and I got a lecture, afterwards, on how running was for losers.

    @@

    Why did I think it would be fun to bring him along?

  148. I mean, he plays SOCCER and he’s putting me down.

    Criminey.

    In soccer news, my 13 year old has been declared the best player on her (travel) team, much to the chagrin of some of the other parents. She – along with a few more girls – are going to play up to the next level for tournaments.

    I sure hope I don’t break her on that 10 mile run on Saturday. The coach will KILL me.

  149. Where is MJ when I want to talk running?

    He’s useless.

  150. If I wanted to go somewhere that is 10 miles away, I’d get in my carbon-belching V-6 and drive. Just sayin’.

  151. Nekkid yoga mom doesn’t want to be called “Hippie”. Bradley wants to be called “Chelsea”. NM Supreme Court decides Christian photographers can’t discriminate against gays. Ayres and his ilk have won. Game over. Where’s Mare?

  152. KID RUN.

    No. seriously. I’m taking my kids running.

    Someone alert CPS.

  153. NM Supreme Court can kiss my ass. If it is my business, I’ll take custom from whomever I wish. Fuck ’em with the barbed cock of Satan!

  161. Alex – My conservative, gay, BiL told me that the people pushing this kind of crap make it harder for gay people, not easier.

  162. So on the day of the wedding, you just call them, feign a horrible cold, and tell them congratulations.

  163. So the NM Supreme Court has never heard of the First Amendment:

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;

    OR PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE THEREOF

  164. I’m sorry, Wiser. I am one of those half-assed know-it-alls that likes to monkey with the software before the training class. I finally got a new computer at work yesterday, and I’ve already uninstalled Microsoft Communicator and cancelled the disk encryption. It’s a desktop, not a laptop, and that asshole in space optics can leave me the fuck alone.

  165. I knew Mare would have the right words.

  166. Mare,

    It shouldn’t even be a religious issue. The First Amendment also protects freedom of association. If I choose not to associate with certain people through my business, then what right does the government have to tell me otherwise?

  167. Yes, I agree Alex. Completely.

    What good is having your own business if you can’t enjoy the individuality of owning it?

  168. We don’t take pictures of fags.™

  169. If homosexuality is repulsive to some, well hey, that’s the way it is.

    Others in this country are repulsed by red necks. Others are repulsed by Christians.

  170. This stupid bitch said this:

    “Most compassionate congregations in the world are Muslim,” Campbell said, touting the interfaith “Charter of Compassion” organized by British religious historian and syncretist Karen Armstrong. Campbell urged: “We are called to a compassionate Christianity,” that embodies “Jesus’ dangerous dream” that “we all might be one.”

  174. I’m repulsed by people that treat their dogs like family. Oh, wait…never mind.

  175. MCPO Airdale,

    One of the things that I’ve noticed in the past few years is how much society relies on ritual, custom, and tradition. The left has systematically destroyed much of that and continues to attack the rest. The problem is that those traditions, rituals and customs allowed very different groups to coexist.

    Most people don’t have a problem with the two nice gentlemen who live down the street and own the local bakery. Their problem is when they turn on the news and see a “gay pride” parade filled with half-naked men, obscene gestures, transvestites, etc, and then hear demands that those people should be treated exactly the same as everyone else, and that their lifestyle should be seen as “normal”.

  176. I was never one of those who thought Obama was good looking. He was always too wimpy for my taste. Then I saw him on that bike with the mom jeans and helmet and the repulsion was upped eleventy.

  177. “Most people don’t have a problem with the two nice gentlemen who live down the street and own the local bakery.

  189. Wow….I think MJ could actually stand up in that one, Jew –

  190. There’s an older gay guy at work and he’s just the sweetest.

    Of course he won me over with his home-made cheesecake. He makes all flavors.

    I think more gay guys should make and give me cheesecake. You should just see how accepting I can be.

  191. Jewstin, sure you can build weird looking kitchen cabinet appliances … but how are you with cheesecake?

    This is important.

  192. Oh, crap – MJ’s here.

    *waves nonchalantly*
    Hi, MJ ♥♥♥

  193. Actually, I make cool things that keep stuff hot.

  194. I like cheesecake too. SURPRISE!!

  195. I can make a pretty mean New York cheesecake. Rum and chocolate mocha have proven the most popular, but the almond one is a close runner-up.

  196. Chocolate mocha cheese cake?

    I don’t care who you make out with.

  197. If only gays knew that the way into our (heterosexual) hearts is through delicious desserts.

  198. New running skirt was a success.

    And my daughter BEAT me running. Little itch. It was only 4 miles. We’ll see how she does with 10.

    (she can beat me on short distances – I’ll admit that – she’s a natural athlete and in great shape)

  199. I can make chocolate truffles too. I had a boyfriend with a sweet tooth, so I learned how to temper chocolate by hand, and made him a couple dozen for his birthday.

  200. She’s not old, either. Like us.

  201. Mmmm cheesecake and chocolate…keep talking

  202. Chocolate mocha cheese cake?

    I don’t care who you make out with.

    HAH!

  203. On the way home from the Costco run today, I had to pass the local high school, which is not in session, yet. Looked like the track teams were practicing and coming back from a hill-run. They were waiting for the light to cross the main-drag by the school. It was a mass of very hot, sweaty, scowling teen-agers.
    It’s 80 degrees with 98% humidity!

    They looked miserable…

  204. It’s 80 degrees with 98% humidity!

    Wimps.

  205. It’s 80 degrees with 98% humidity!

    They looked miserable…

    Having gone through basic training at Fort Benning in the summer, my response is, “suck it up, buttercups.”

  206. ChrisP, that’s kinda the default look hereabouts, if you’re outside longer than a walk to the car, mailbox, etc. They talk about air you wear, and they ain’t kidding. I always feel bad for the HS athletes practicing in August.

  207. Chrispy, did you see where it was a friend of mine flying Ospreys through the Cascades this week?

  208. Xbrad, Nope.
    Only that there are 4 MV-22s training here this week. We’ve seen and heard them several times. So far, always in airplane-mode, and hauling ass…

  209. Two of these just flew over the Hobbit Hole. . .

  210. FiL was at Dr appt. MiL went outside to get fresh tomatoes from the garden. Fell and hit her head. Getting stitched up now. Short version: Gardening is bad, m’kay.

  211. We went to a museum today. They no longer use BC and AD.

    They use BCE, before common era.

  212. Scott – Completely eliminating anything I learned in Western Civilization.

  213. Hostage Family Theater

    Mr Car in: What’s that thing over there with all the Butterflies on it?

    Car in: That’s a “Butterfly Bush”.

    Mr. Car in: It IS NOT. What’s it called?

    Car in: sigh

    Fin

    Non-gardeners. @@

  214. Carin – Buddleja or Buddleia

  215. I saw Butterfly Bush open on Saturday night at the Kitty Cat Lounge.

  216. ALex – How does she get all of the colors in there?!

  217. This is the great thing about kids, they are fired up about life. As long as they are polite, I love to see kids in a store excited about whatever it is they are excited about.

  218. ALex – How does she get all of the colors in there?!

    Glitter. And herpes.

  219. Gardening is bad, m’kay.

    YOU SHUT YOUR WHORE MOUTH.

  220. “They use BCE, before common era.”

    Assholes.

    Common to what? Dipshits.

  221. The header pic… HA!

  222. Every 45 mins.

  223. how YOU doin’

  224. BCE? JTFC.

  225. I need a friend. . .

  226. Providence RI is an awesome day trip. We will be back soon.

  227. I’d take a friend too.

    Wait, whut?!

  228. What prompted that, Scott? Have a delivery there and just decided to make a day of it? Sounds nice.

  229. Nope. Planned day trip with my Mom.

    This made Laura go “WOW”

    600 bce Babylon wall. http://is.gd/vX5uOd

  230. Very cool, Scott.

  231. Well done, Scott.

  232. Lots of old mansions that look like this one. I think it went up around 1780 and George Washington visited the place.

  233. Scott went to a museum?

    I am, surprised.

  234. Did anybody misplace anybody else’s handcuff keys today?

  235. 30 years ago Providence was a dump, a very dangerous dump.
    It’s now a destination city.

    Thanks mostly to Mayor Buddy Cianci. Here is what wiki says about his career.

    “His first administration ended in 1984 when he pleaded guilty to assault. His second stint as mayor ended when he was forced to resign following his conviction for racketeering conspiracy (running a corrupt criminal enterprise), and he served four years in federal prison.[1]”

    The assault was a real assault. He beat up a guy with a fireplace log and an ashtray.

    The people of Providence love him for turning the city around and he is thinking about running again.

    If he does he will win.

    $20

  236. Car in: Fine. It’s a Buddleia Davidii. That’s the Latin name.

    Mr. Car in: What does it mean in Latin?

    Car in: “The Truth In Advertising Bush”

  237. Did anybody misplace anybody else’s handcuff keys today?

    Why? What have you heard?!

  238. Mr. TiFW is taking me to see “We’re The Millers” tonight for our anniversary (#33).

    Yeah, we’re wild ones, we are….

  239. We used to shoot down to Providence for shows at Club Babyhead, bachelor parties at the wide array of titty bars and music at the shops near Brown University (College Hill neighborhood).

  240. LauraW – Did you see my comment?

  241. Yes, MCPO.

  242. The titty bars are gone.

  243. They have been replaced with nice bars that sell food.

  244. Happy anniversary, TiFW. I hope the popcorn is gluten-free.

  245. I love museums. It sounds like an obvious answer but the Louvre is just so great. I spent a lot of time there while my husband was working.

    Milo of Croton (one depiction) is so beautiful, I spent so much time just looking at the lions teeth and claws into the skin.

    I spent a lot of time starring at this one too:

    Tomb of Philippe Pot, governor of Burgundy under Louis XI

    His curved armored shoes were amazing to me. Besides everything else.

    Take your $20 and shove it.

  246. I know the shoes were articulated, I just thought it was cool it was incorporated into the sculpture.

  247. I used to love museums. Now, when I read the descriptors, I nearly pop a blood vessel. Dan knows to keep me away from the Modern Art wings when we’re visiting museums. He’s the Clark Griswold at the Grand Canyon of museum visitors.

  248. We did spend a day at the A&S Annex in 2007.

  249. There was a desk there that won a contest at the 1903 worlds fair. It took 70 lbs of silver and 7000 man hours to build.

  250. HA! I hate modern art. Even when Sister Wendy would give an absolutely riveting depiction of a piece of modern art, I would still think, “meh, give me a couple of trips to Hobby Lobby and some wine and I could make that pos.”

  251. *The titty bars are gone.*

    I’d pour out a 40 if I still gave a shit. Bachelor parties seem like a distant memory now. Hazy for some reason.

  252. Beautiful workmanship, Scott.

  253. This, to me, is a work of art.

    http://is.gd/dAThNI

    Ladies and gentlemen, the RA-5C Vigilante.

  254. See, that’s art, something the average person couldn’t do (70 pounds of silver, 7000 man hours). And in fact lots of art I’ve seen and admired could only be done with God’s help.

  255. I see that art in that also, MCPO.

  256. Mare, worst Modern Art I’ve ever seen was a picture frame with pubic hair. It was called “Pubic Hair Under Glass”. Part of a series of pubic hair art. In Santa Fe. Close 2nd was in Denver. Broken glass on the floor. Holocaust Art.

  257. http://tinyurl.com/msch3wm

  258. The picture doesn’t do it justice. The inlaid wood and silver was amazing and lots of the things that look like blobs in that picture are carved animals.

  259. Mare, Feather Indians doing Native Art is considered “Craft”. Anglos doing Native Craft is considered “Art”. (Goes back to counting my Zuni Bear fetish collection)

  260. Stupid extra “that.”

    “It was called “Pubic Hair Under Glass””

    See, any jerkoff could do that. It’s stupid and pointless. There is no there, there.

  261. I guaran-dam-tee you I could make this:

  262. The art is getting some government art administration overseer to give you $100,000 to make the POS in my last link.

  263. Waiting for my cat picture to get to the server.

  264. Hah! Scott’s Mom and I both paused by a glass case in which resided a large, polished stone covered with curly black hair.

    http://risdmuseum.org/art_design/objects/1431_rock_head

    We looked at each other with the same expression of bored hostility, and moved on.

    Now this lovely thing, I gravitated to; I thought was a contemporary bronze. Nope. 1851.

    In person it is really something else. The flesh has a rubbed silver patina, and the hair looks soft and touchable. Gorgeous.

  265. I really hate government funded art. Should be able to stand on its own merit. Sink or swim.

  266. Oso, I have a Zuni fetish necklace I bought in ABQ years ago. Not top of the line but not remotely a cheap Chinese knock off. It’s on my list to frame in a shadow box (I think that’s the term for a display box/frame).

  267. Years ago the city of Hartford decided they were going to spiff up a park with some boulders.

    They purchased 16 boulders and paid some fancy pants designer $60,000 to plan out how they should be arranged.

  268. It’s hard to imagine the time and skill necessary to do the hair. Every twisted part.

  269. That’s a lovely bust (SYWM) Laura. It does look contemporary.

  270. Well, it certainly was an unexpected arrangement. I think he really did surprise people with that composition. Especially the people who cut the check.

    Genius.

  272. This spectacular piece was shown in the movie Pride and Prejudice:

  273. Form follows function, MCPO.

    This is a work of art.

  274. The art of war indeed.

  275. You see, the genius in Hartford was that there was NOTHING else to spend tax dollars on. BRILLIANT.

    Normally, cities make new construction (large projects) put so much of their building money into art in a nearby park or in front of the building.

    Usually some modern industrial form piece of crap.

  276. Hartford is following Detroit’s lead.

  277. I really need to take a picture of my Zuni Osos for Beasn. They are in a cheesy display case in my front bathroom. Jimbro, a shadowbox would be cool.

  278. It is median landscaping that is pissing me off. And Freeway Art.

  279. Normally, cities make new construction (large projects) put so much of their building money into art in a nearby park or in front of the building.

    Cheyenne built a rape tunnel under an intersection with a bit of grass and some brass Canada geese. There are some historical plaques to look at until the raping ends..

  280. Veiled Lady is very cool, Mare.

  281. We don’t have rape tunnels, we probably need some.

    If they are expensive we will need several.

  282. We have a concrete tunnel at UNM. Called Center of the Universe. Creates a dangerous place on campus. ART!!!!

  283. Seems legit http://i.imgur.com/FrmArbu.jpg

  284. No museum here, but I did look into a garage where there was some old furniture.

  285. Lauraw, I saw that. This is what America has become.

  286. Pretty soon they won’t be able to sell beer at games, because of the kids.

    For the children, yannow.

  287. Holy shit, that’s ridiculous.

    Why did they give him a trespassing citation?

    That asshole SGT Wesley Kuhl is a douche times 100. “Lucky to avoid jail time.”

    Seriously, I’ve had my kids hold my beer while at a Rangers game.

  288. Ben Affleck as Batman? Why did Zack Snyder think that was a good idea? He has the acting range of Keanu Reeves.

  289. I remember when Jim McMahon had his 3 yr old get him a beer from the fridge during an interview. It was OMG!!!!

  304. Now, now, MJ; the Reverend Al and Jesse Jackson will be along with heart filling words of wisdom as to this senseless act and how we need more money for these obviously underprivileged chirren in 5… 4… 3…

  305. God bless Drudge for making that story front and center. Oh, and Okrah can go fuck herself.

  306. There’s some whopping big clouds east of here. Cyn, you might get some rain tonight.

    Ok maybe 10 min ago

    Hot tiger chick showing off her perky silhouette curves on the green screen like a Bond girl, for the win.

  316. L to R: Cyn, Zman

  317. WerdPuss has been wonky on and off today. It prolly just needs a good kick in the pants.

  318. Ha ha ha, the only thing perky is my ass getting up from this chair when someone hollers that it’s time for ice cream 😉

  319. Richard has another nice essay today. Depressing, but spot-on.

  320. needs a good kick in the pants.
    With a 10# sledgehammer, to the nads.

  321. Speaking of ice cream, well, fro-yo really, I have discovered this place: http://www.goldenspoon.com/

    Better. than. sex.

  322. I have seen perky tiger chick, and she is very curvy in all the right places, and perky too!
    There may be, hum, certain foundational garments, helping, but they enhance existing, and do not create something from nothing.

  323. *awards Zman 10 brazilian dollars*

    M’wah!

  324. One more school day to go this week- sweet dreams, peeps and peepers.

  325. Dang, I haven’t made coconut butter in forever.

    Dark-roasted coconut butter is supposed to be a must for use in asian stir fry. Has a lot of umami.

    I need a new food processor.

  326. G’night everybody. Lots of Doxie drama. Gingy is jealous of all the “Attention” that MaryAnn is getting and MaryAnn really hates The Cone.

  327. wtf?
    I sleep off the whiskey sours and the damn place empties out..

  328. What has happened to it all?
    Crazy, some’d say
    Where is the derp that I recognize?
    Gone away

  329. Good morning all!

    Me, lately: http://tinyurl.com/mgeeu8x

  330. Bewbs are here. Well, there. Dang they are everywhere!

    Those of you who browse at work may as well bring your own boxes and call HR preemptively.

  331. There is a word for this I am not remembering. I bought a quart of strawberries and a quart of blueberries last week. I ran all of them through my egg slicer and covered multiple layers with sugar. Wow the juice is awesome.

    Macerated? Is that the word I am looking for?

  332. I need to hunt around and see if anyone’s done an essay on the “diseases of decadence”. I’m pretty sure no one ought to be forced to pay for Bradley Manning’s estrogen poisoning, but we probably will be. The very idea of “I feel like I’m supposed to be a woman” is something that just doesn’t fly in anything other than a highly-urbanized, declining culture.
