  1. FIRST!!!!

  2. It’s the small achievements that keep me going.

  3. Well, I accomplished something today anyway.

  4. wakey wakey

  5. Where are all the fochers of hose this morning? I have to woroky worky in a bit.

    No funnah for me before Obamajob, I guess.

    Someone tell Leon I hurt myself Crossfitting. Not really. It’s those stupid trays at work.

    But it will make him feel good.

  6. Don’t know, Carin. Everyone else at my house is still asleep. I’m thinking of baking some Christmas cookies. I do not give a shit about carbs or gluten at the moment.

  7. I didn’t get to make any cookies because of the no-power thing. I wanted to make some rum balls.

  8. I don’t so much care about carbs and gluten, but working out SUCKED on thursday after all that Italian cream cake I ate.

  9. Got up and celebrated the start of the consecutive 363rd day this year without cross training

  10. *looks around confused*

    Where are the bewbs?

  11. Slow day at home. Back to work tomorrow which will be a treat considering we’re getting another storm tonight. I’m praying we don’t lose power again. I’m guessing half my visits will be no-shows.

  12. I just got lost in the Funny tab for about an hour.

    How long has that been there?

  13. The Forged thing?

    Since late last night. Wiser’s been trying to educate me on Hostage history.

  14. Where are the bewbs?

    Hahahahaha. You had me thinking for a minute that it was Friday.

  15. Time does seem off with the Christmas/New Years holidays and kids out of school and time off from work. The routine is shot.

  16. I had completely forgotten about the Fat News Network.
    I was in tears reading that one.

    The car names too.

  17. Good morning, cool kids and peepers.

  18. Local idiots on my TV

    – “CT has the 2nd toughest gun laws in the nation, yet we had 92 gun deaths since the latest legislation passed. What did we do wrong?”

    + “The Federal Govt failed to pass new gun control legislation.”

  19. Newbs have to read the tour post.

  20. OMFG…double shift last night at obamajob. 11 AM-5PM & 6PM-1AM. Normal shift leader for Sat night wife went into labor so I got asked to cover. So, I took the assistant lead spot and ran herd over the cooks, which was mercifully drama free on my end. The only stupidity came from the lone Guatemalan cook who hates everybody and can’t figure out why his inability to speak English should hold him back from promotion.

  21. I received my Secret Santa gift today. It was here on time I am certain. I was gone.

    Thanks not so secret santa for the Rangers book and the redneck wine glass. It is a hoot.

  22. >>>Newbs have to read the tour post.

    It is chilling just how accurate that continues to be in describing this place.

  23. Welcome Home Vmaxzekexas.

    Nice holiday?

  24. Yes Pups.
    How was yours?

  25. Good morning. Who shall we piss off today?

  26. Who shouldn’t we piss off today??

  27. Today, I pack…and watch football.

  28. OK…coffee isn’t working. Time to break out the AC/DC videos

  29. Mundane, there’s a copy of Shoot to Thrill that has a Dukes of Hazzard montage. And ends with a very fit Jessica Simpson washing the General Lee.

  30. *hugs xbrad inapprop…. oh okaaaay I’ll stop*

  31. OOooo…Xbrad, YESSSS!

    Although, I like my women a bit more curvy than she was in that movie.

    Wait, that car wash scene was for her murdering “These Boots Were Made for Walking” video wasn’t it?

  32. On a related note, “Shoot to Thrill” has now been a soundtrack song to how many testosterone fests?

    Dukes
    CoD 3
    Red 2
    Iron Man 2
    xXx :State of the Union (aka Ice Cube’s Big Adventure)

    Hey, I see a pattern here….

  33. Ahh…Thuderstruck, how I missed thee.

  34. Where’s the NFL schedule?

    CYN…..!!!

  35. Been good so far V. I’ve spent the morning confirming the fact that I’m not a mechanic. I think I’ll just plop down in front of the TV and watch football.

  36. http://www.nfl.com/schedules

  37. Would one of you make me some gumbo? Thanks in advance

  38. **taps Dave with magic wand**

    You’re some gumbo!

  39. Watching Steelers / Browns…not on TV

    http://firstrowus1.eu/

    Don’t download anything.

  40. Imma gonna make gumbo sometime. No okra, though. I can never find it, and have never cooked with it.

  41. Hey Cyn where’s the NFL schedule? We shouldn’t have to click.

    *modifies Tour post

  42. Watching football in Mexico is a bit surreal, Spanish announcers. I was waiting to see how they wuuld pronounce ‘Rothelisberger’. They got it, They usually punt and say, ‘Big Ben.’

  43. I just unloaded the 4th truckload of crap into our house.

    It’s like were living in an episode of Sanford and Sons, big dummy.

  44. Only 4? Good thing you’re out of the packing business!

  45. >> No okra, though. I can never find it, and have never cooked with it.

    PHILISTINE!

    scott what are you offloading?

  46. That firstrow place is good. At kickoff there will only be a couple of links and they will require you to download aids to open. If you wait a few minutes, aids-free links will show up.

  47. Heh, appropriate misspelling, well done!

  48. Stuff that sold at online auctions.
    We usually see interesting pieces of art and furniture. Not so much this time.

    It’s mostly crap.

  49. So, what game or games is everyone watching today?

  50. Remember Bradford Exchange plates?

    People pay big bucks for them thinking they will go up in value.
    When they die, their collections sell at auction for $1-$2 each.

  51. Their plates, not collections. Big dummy.

  52. Cyn! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atgcY_KqT18

    hahahahaha….That reminds me of my Dad, he use to say that mimicking that show.

  60. Wiserbud?

    http://imgur.com/RlLhvcl

  61. I’d guess she has a tendonopathy and impending rupture. Debride the spurs and degenerated tendon and reattach it to the calcaneus. Usually thats done with a suture anchor like a Mitek (brand name, lots of companies make them). Probably no weight on it for 2 months rather than total bedrest.

  62. Fucking dryer quit spinning. I took the cover off the front and found two totally destroyed black neoprene wheels laying in the bottom.

    Carinnnnnnn!!!!!!!!!!

  63. **taps Dave with magic wand**

    Poof! You’re a dumbo.

    ??Gumbo?? What’s a gumbo? We don’t know gumbo up here in N.E.

  64. Fucking dryer quit spinning.

    Send it to spin class with MJ.

  65. Cyn! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=atgcY_KqT18

    HAHA! Still funny the 10th time I watched it.

    The big dummeh.

  66. Mare! http://imgur.com/rmsukUa

  67. AD your new avatard looks a bit like Batman, unless I hoverhand it.

    Is that Beta?

  68. Family calenders for 2014… DONE. Just waiting for Mr. Cyn to get here with card stock to print ’em out.

  69. If there’s one of you in the nude, you have my address. Send it to my office though.

  70. Thanks, Jimbro.

    Guess who gets to care and feed sis while she’s off her feet?

  71. yes, Cyn, that is Beta when she is feeling feisty.

  72. >>>Wiserbud?

    We’re gonna need a bigger display….

  73. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=clw9DGdkrVw

  74. I love my sister dearly but cannot imagine visiting her more than 2 days. You’re a good man Charlie Brown.

  75. Yannow, some men would see that digital display on that bottle opener and see a challenge.

    I see a decent weekend.

  76. http://theferalirishman.blogspot.com/2013/12/oh-look-i-found-some-extra-presents.html

    The above link is not nsfw but the links at the link are definitely nsfw if that makes any sense

  77. gumbo is life.

    farthead

  78. Tell me something good DiT. Gimme some hope.

  79. Beer is Life.

  80. Life is beer.

  81. Need a little advice. What’s a good, very simple foto editing freeware?

  82. What OS?

  83. MS Paint

  84. Windows 7

  85. *sad face*

    No alcohol for me right now.

  86. Zoner Photo Studio and FastStone Image Viewer are both on my desktop. I use them for work almost daily.

  87. Actually, what I want more than editing is organizing.

  88. Picasa.

    That can actually recognize faces and tag each pic with the name of the person in it.

  89. It also has decent editing tools.

    And it’s free

  90. Does it automatically forward that info to NSA, or do I have to do that manually?

  91. >>>No alcohol for me right now.

    Boooooo……

  92. They already have it.

  93. >>>Boooooo……

    Yup. Ulcers and alcohol don’t mix. I got about 4 1/2 to 5 more weeks for them to heal up (according to doc’s time frame)

    I tried to have something to drink a couple nights ago. I got about halfway through the drink before I didn’t feel great. The next day was awful.

  94. >>>or do I have to do that manually?

    It’s set to do it automatically when you install it, but I think there’s an option you can select in Preferences that makes you think you’re stopping it from happening.

  95. That kitten gif made my daughters and I collectively say, “awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww”

  96. >>> I got about halfway through the drink before I didn’t feel great. The next day was awful.

    Guess it’s rufies and milk for a couple of weeks then.

  97. >>>Guess it’s rufies and milk for a couple of weeks then.

    <__>

    What have you heard?

  98. What the fuck happened there???

  99. >>>What have you heard?

    I heard that you’re married to a cheerleader.

    So I assume that you are very well-versed in the proper dosage calculation and delivery methods

  100. >>>I heard that you’re married to a cheerleader.
    So I assume that you are very well-versed in the proper dosage calculation and delivery methods

    True.

    And no comment.

  101. http://bangordailynews.com/2013/12/29/news/midcoast/falling-ice-closes-penobscot-narrows-bridge/

    I can lean back in my chair and see that bridge from my living room window. $20.

  102. >>>What the fuck happened there???

    HTML brackets will fuck with you every chance they get.

  103. At the HQ I scream at Pixy. Who do I curse here?

  104. GIGO

  105. >>>At the HQ I scream at Pixy. Who do I curse here?

    It’s usually me.

    Not that I can fix anything, but it seems to make people feel better

  106. HA! Pups, I almost linked that very one.

    *thows you a breath-freshening dog cookie*

  107. Awww. poor wiser.

  108. >>>It’s usually me.
    Not that I can fix anything, but it seems to make people feel better

    DON’T TELL ME WHAT I CAN AND CAN’T DO!!!!

  109. WTF, why is the Bears/Packers game on here?

  110. >>>DON’T TELL ME WHAT I CAN AND CAN’T DO!!!!

    Feel better now?

  111. >>>Awww. poor wiser.

    hey, I’m not complaining. It’s not like I listen to the bitching…..

    Or care

  112. Great, the Chiefs are gonna hand a game to the Chargers.

  113. No, but I don’t have the keys necessary to post a really bitchy poat about it.

  114. I didn’t see any discussion on members, after it was brought up yesterday. Perhaps we could raise that issue now?

  115. Don’t worry, bcock. We’ll just listen to you bitch about it in the comments.

  116. >>>No, but I don’t have the keys necessary to post a really bitchy poat about it.

    How has this situation not been addressed yet?

    Someone please tell me when the next executive council meeting is scheduled. I have an item I would like to add to the agenda.

  117. Usually there’s a big pow wow in email, but I didn’t see anything.

    Time to piss everyone off with reply all again?

  118. You can’t add agenda items that weren’t added to the agenda at the last Executive Council Meeting.

    BTW, at the last Executive Council Meeting, we voted you off the Executive Council.

  119. >>>>>>No, but I don’t have the keys necessary to post a really bitchy poat about it.

    >>>How has this situation not been addressed yet?

    Ummm…my comment was not some meta bitchy passive aggressive plea for some kind of access.

    Just to put that out there.

  120. >>>Time to piss everyone off with reply all again?

    Is there ever a bad time for that?

  121. *breathes into paw and sniffs*

    *dies*

  122. Bears Packers and Pats Bills here.

    San Diego usually loses when they are supposed to win. Steelers will be in the playoffs if they do.

  123. Go San Diego! Lose!

  124. **shovels out inbox in anticipation of “Your mailbox is over the size limit.”**

  125. >>>BTW, at the last Executive Council Meeting, we voted you off the Executive Council.

    Wait… I wasn’t invited to the last……

    opooOOOOOOoooooo…..

    Well, time for me to be moseying on down that long lonesome road, I reckon….

  126. Cheer up, Wiser.

    You’re still on the Innocent Bystanders EC.

  127. Ooooo Squeeeee It’s been a while since we had a Reply All Inner Star Chamber Executive Council Chain Mail Thingy!

    *turns off computer*

  128. Don’t go away mad…

  129. >>>Ummm…my comment was not some meta bitchy passive aggressive plea for some kind of access.

    See, if it had been, you would have voted in unanimously, due your broken nature and desperately needy soul.

    But if you’re {{{gasp}}} one of them “normies”, this may be a more difficult decision

  130. >>>Well, time for me to be moseying on down that long lonesome road, I reckon….

    Liar.

  131. I’m kinda afraid to try to access the dashboard, for fear Wiser has deleted my credentials.

  132. >>>But if you’re {{{gasp}}} one of them “normies”, this may be a more difficult decision

    I’ve been called lots of things, normal has never been one of them.

  133. >>>You’re still on the Innocent Bystanders EC.

    Loneliest meetings ever.

  134. No worries, XB. I already took care of that last week.

  135. NOOOOO

  136. Dammit, where’s the goddamn e-mail list??!?!

    *buzzes secretary

    Jody, would you please have Cyn come to my office please.

  137. >>>Jody, would please have Cyn come to my office please.

  138. *gets buzzed by my twin pool boy secretaries with notice that Wiser’s summoning me*

    *keeps filing fingernails*

  139. >>>Liar.

    Heh. Took me a second, but I got that.

    Hey, just for the record, I vote “yes.” The way I figure it, he’s been a part of the AI blog for almost a week now and that right there makes him smarter than 2/3s of the people we already have on board here

  140. sheesh, throw in a pronoun.. they’re not on restricted use

  141. Jody?

  142. Cyn, that Fast Stone is pretty great. Thanks.

  152. Not seeing anything here. http://animosityintl.wordpress.com/

    Girls Trip!

    Woo-hoo!

    **grabs Christmas box of wine**

  153. I do believe it’s time for XBrad to go lounge by the pool. Maybe soak in the hot tub a bit.

    See y’all in a bit.

  154. Roamy….http://wp.me/4bKx5

  155. >>>Fine for what.
    Looked clean to me

    Shot to the head.

  156. Shot to the heart, you’re to blame.

  157. The NFL gives football a bad name.

  158. Nice save! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HPlYFBzD8o

  159. Stupid Chiefs. I H8 it when teams “Rest” their players. H8d it when Marv did it with the Bills. H8 the Chiefs for doing it today.

  160. >> Jody, would please have Cyn come to my office please.

    YOU a pronoun, you dick oh I give up

    And not his/her own.

  169. Greetings, people who wear football helmets for other reasons.

  170. >>>Bullshit.
    He barely touched him.

    “Maybe you’re ready for a thicker set.”

  173. >>>Greetings, people who wear football helmets for other reasons.

    Anybody else find that one extra gift that they forgot to wrap and put under the tree today?

  174. >>>Only Jody should be able to edit comments.

    Jody is so fired….

  175. Don’t drag me into your sausagefest.

  176. >>>Don’t drag me into your sausagefest.

    “You’re”

    Oh.

    No.

    Wait.

    Your right.

    Sorry. My bad.

  177. Carry on then.

  178. Hey Wiser, AI store needs a zippo with the logo on it. I’d buy it.

  179. Home again, home again, jiggety jig.

    Hello, my lovelies!

  180. >>>Carry on then.

    *snicker

  181. >> But that wasn’t good enough for you?

    hugs you

  184. WAIT.. no bullshit either.. I love you my friend.

  185. Well, Dave’s drunk.

  186. Teresa, the town your daughter was visiting is the town our store was in.

  187. >>>hugs you

    Look, don’t patronize me.

    If you can’t hug me inappropriately, then don’t waste my time

  188. Hey, Scott, I just found this out on Christmas; my son in law is from Windsor Locks.

    Small world.

  189. It was extremely inappropriate..

    like Boston

  190. >>>Here at H2 it’s snigger. It’s in the style book.

    sracist.

  191. Did you tell him about officer Paul?

  192. >>>WAIT.. no bullshit either.. I love you my friend.

    awwwww…..

    C’mere, you big goof.

  193. you shut up

  194. Hahahaha

    No. What happens in Windsor Locks stays in Windsor Locks. Especially the part about the broken bed.

  195. >>>Did you tell him about officer Paul?

    His son in law IS Officer Paul.

    *waves hands in front of blog….

  196. Seriously, Scott? Small world :P

    That’s where her boyfriend grew up – they were visiting his parents for Christmas. Last name of Syska.

  197. If Laura doesn’t know them, she knows some of their neighbors.

  198. Officer Paul is the coolest cop I ever met

  199. Wiserdaughter is upset because she left her boots at Grandma’s house.

    But, of course, it is not wiserdaughter’s fault. It is everyone else’s fault.

    So we now have a new mantra at casa de wiser. I made everyone say it with me.

    “I am responsible for my own shit. I am not responsible for someone else’s shit. No one else is responsible for my shit.”

    Wiserdaughter is not happy with this new mantra.

  200. >>>Officer Paul is the coolest cop I ever met

    He neither tazed Rosetta nor let me hold his gun.

    Cool?

    Meh

  201. >>>Last name of Syska.

    *searches local paper archives…

    oh…

    Oh….

    Oh my….

    Hmmmmmmmm….

    She’s probably gonna be fine

  202. >> Wiserdaughter is not happy with this new mantra.

    Oh you have a 20-ish dramatic daughter. We’ll trade stories.

  203. >>>“I am responsible for my own shit. I am not responsible for someone else’s shit. No one else is responsible for my shit.”

    The ethos of a once proud and strong country.

  204. I googled the name.
    I googled the address.
    If I look 1/2 mile Northeast of their house and zoom in…….
    Banglar Party Van!

  205. >>>Oh you have a 20-ish dramatic daughter. We’ll trade stories.

    Heh, she just tweeted “why can’t I be left alone”

    Oh sweetie. You really need to think that one through

  206. FSA does not approve your new mantra.

  207. >>>The ethos of a once proud and strong country.

    If only wiserbride was strong enough to join me in my gentle mockery.

  208. AUGH!!!!!!!

  209. >>>If only wiserbride was strong enough to join me in my gentle mockery.

    One of the great things about the wife, she’s as sarcastic as I am.

    That can, however, come back to bite me squarely in my white Irish ass.

  210. Just tweeted the mantra.

    Waiting for the scream/stomping sounds

  211. SOCCUP!

  212. >>>Banglar Party Van!

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

  213. #leave me alone

  214. >> >>>Banglar Party Van!
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

    agreed

  215. >>>One of the great things about the wife, she’s as sarcastic as I am.

    Oh, so is wiserbride, but she hates dealing with the drama-queen when she is in full drama-queen mode

  216. “I am responsible for my own shit. I am not responsible for someone else’s shit. No one else is responsible for my shit.”

    Wow, talk about your racist dog whistles…

  217. wiser.. on this planet, there is no one other than my eldest girl who knows where mom’s button are. Who knows which order to press them in and how long to lean on em.

    I admire her skills from behind the sofa. And I laugh so hard at BC right now.

  218. For wiser…..http://tinypic.com/r/15ydw02/5

  219. *hopes DiT’s daughter’s boyfriend has more piercings than God-given holes*

  220. I googled the name.
    I googled the address.
    If I look 1/2 mile Northeast of their house and zoom in…….
    Banglar Party Van!

    OMG, you’re kidding! You guys live that close to them?

    I’ll have to let DD#1 know :P

  221. save yourselves we’re at DEFCON2

  222. >>>save yourselves we’re at DEFCON2

    *snicke* *sniggering*

  223. We live 25 minutes away.
    Google photographed the neighborhood while we were at work.

    Laura’s truck and my van were there that day.

  224. oh my God we are actually at sophomore year..

    we’re done.. this is it.

  225. Got it.

    Good thing, too – I was beginning to worry about what might happen the next time DD#1 and her boyfriend were visiting his folks if the BPV was that close to where they would be staying.

    It would be just my luck to have my first (future Hostage) grandchild conceived in the back of that infamous vehicle…

  226. Take off and nuke the site from orbit, dave. It’s the only way to be sure.

  227. That night in Windsor somebody, I suspect Micheal, set me up by filling
    a roll of shrink wrap with empty beer cans. A week later, trying to look professional in front of a customer, I grab the shrink wrap.

  228. wasn’t me

  229. It’s OK, I plastered his rental car with beer labels.

  230. heh

  231. Y’all do meets hardcore huh?

    At the NoVa Moron MeetUp I just got really drunk and then took a piss off my BiL’s townhome front stoop.

  232. I tried a meat with some Morons a long time ago. One other person showed.

    H2 Meats are way more tasty.

  233. >>>I tried a meat with some Morons a long time ago. One other person showed.

    There were 30+ at the NoVa meetup.

  234. Was it just a one night meat, or a few days?

  235. You get some strange people at AOS meetups.

    This place is different.

  236. I’ve only done mini-meats. They’re fun enough, but there’s a disappointing lack of property damage involved.

  237. >>>Was it just a one night meat, or a few days?

    One night. Went from about 6 to midnight.

    >>>You get some strange people at AOS meetups.
    This place is different.

    The people at NoVa were good people. A lot of regular commenters.

  238. Ours are more like college reunions.

  239. >>>Ours are more like college reunions.

    I see that from the Meat Locker

  240. I’ve only done mini-meats. They’re fun enough, but there’s a disappointing lack of property damage involved.

    You’re doing it wrong.

  241. Ours are more like college reunions.

    That nails it exactly.

    The whole notion of hugging people on first meeting, though, blows the mind.

  242. …As though you’ve known them your whole life. Awesome sauce.

  243. Car in hosted one.

    She trusted internet strangers with her home, because she knew she could.

    Stuff like that is just magic.

  244. >>>…As though you’ve known them your whole life. Awesome sauce.

    Consider this your warning. I’m a hugger.

  245. Warning? Pffffft.

    It’s a freaking requirement.

  246. A couple of years ago Laura went to her sisters wedding in Texas.

    Dave spent a day showing her the sights.

    I never threatened to kill him.

  247. The only Hostages I’ve met are Xbrad and BiW. It was like we had known each other for years.
    BiW stopped by for Christmas dinner one year. The other folks there were like: “You’ve never met this guy? What the hell? You invited him into your house?”
    I’ve known him for years. We just never met face-to-face.

    It was awesome…

  248. I’ve only been to one Moron Meat Up. I think H2 does a better ritual for the human sacrifice.

  249. Yeah, the wife couldn’t figure out why I was going to meet all these people that I “didn’t know” and why I was so pumped about it.

    I do know them, I’ve just never met them.

  250. Not only did Car in leave me with her house, she hauled out her Soccer Mom Sideline Gazebo and set it up so I could hang out with the dog in the shade.

  251. It’s ridiculous how we cuddle at these things. At the second big CT one, I remember standing off to one side, just looking at our peeps on Friday night in the bar’s group seating area. People were sitting on each others’ laps, hugging, laughing, and the place was just generally a happy riot.

    Many of them had never met before in real life. It was such a great scene. And just got more awesome over the course of those two days.
    *sigh*

    I still sneak into the meetup pics from time to time to relive this thing.

  253. I still sneak into the meetup pics from time to time to relive this thing.

    I thought I was the only one.

    Good, good times.

  254. LauraW,
    That’s exactly what I experienced with Xbad & BiW.
    Instantly comfortable, and I’m an aspie/social cripple.
    I was startled at how easy it was…

  255. Jail for a traffic ticket? I would play the race card.

  256. Ummm….am I imagining things?

  257. Ooops – deleted comment too late (didn’t want to intrude on the meat-up memories)

    Oh, yeah – when I’ve recovered from the trip, remind me to tell you about DD#2’s exciting Boxing Day morning spent in a Bryan, Texas city jail cell.

    We’re guessing she won’t forget to pay a traffic ticket again….

    It isn’t so much that it was a traffic ticket, it was that she ignored so many warnings that they sent her (we have no idea when she got the ticket).

    But, yeah – I was pretty pissed when I went to their website and saw what kind of warrants for arrests were out there and how many YEARS some of those folks had skated….

  258. It’s probably the mushrooms.

  259. Nah, I avoid hallucinogenics.

  260. Carry on with the Meat-up stuff, you guys. I just tossed out my earlier comment without reading upthread.

    Didn’t mean to squish warm fuzzy feelings; I have fantastic memories of the meat-ups we’ve been able to attend and wish that we could get to more of them :P

  261. Hallucinogenics are gluten free.

  262. Except for those LSD-laced brownies….

  263. Hallucinogenics are a scam. Just like gluten.

  264. I don’t know what book that guy is reading, but it’s GOT to be pretty fucking good.

  265. That, or he’s gay.

  266. Lies!

    daaaaaaaamn…..

  268. Man, life fucking sucks.

    Just got a call from a friend I’ve known for over 30 years. We’ve drifted apart over the last decade, but still remained friends. Last time I saw her was at her daughter’s wedding 3 years ago.

    Her ex-husband, who was a pretty nice guy, passed away on Dec. 17th.

    Her son-in-law passed away of a heart attack on Dec. 25th.

  269. Oh, Wiser – how awful for your friend and her daughter. Sending prayers their way.

  270. Sorry.

    It was just a bit of a shock

  271. Sending Prayers their way.

  272. >>>Sending prayers their way.

    Thanks, TiF. I’ll pass that along

  273. Hard news to hear. Sorry, wiser.

  274. Jeez. When it rains, it pours.

  275. Awful
    Bad things seem to come in pairs

  276. There’s a tab for that.

  277. Hunh. There is.

  278. That was cold.

  279. >>>There’s a tab for that.

    Yeah, my bad.

    Sorry for the downer.

    Just sucked.

  280. Damn timing.

  281. >>>Damn timing.

    Heh.

    Whoops.

  282. Anyway, H2 meat-ups are the best.

    3 days of laughs and fun and hugs that you just never want to end

  283. Terrible. Some people just seem to get more than their fair share of woe.

  284. sigh…timing…again

  285. >>>sigh…timing…again

    Heh.

    I should probably shut up now.

  286. Did anybody already start betting against anybody else’s New Year’s resolutions today?

  287. D’awwwww http://i.imgur.com/TrRaL85.jpg

  288. Oh, dear, Wiser. How awful for your friend. I hope you can be a source of some comfort and solace to her in this time.

  289. Posts I’m surprised aren’t on H2:

    http://tinyurl.com/lavlp8w

  290. I hope I work in an office again some day.

  291. Combo: Sorry to hear about the bad news, Wiser.

    And, can’t wait to get to another meat-up. The one I went to was so long ago that HWSNBN was there!

  292. >>>I hope you can be a source of some comfort and solace to her in this time.

    Going to the wake tomorrow.

    Worst part is that we reconnected at the wedding and promised we would stay close.

    Didn’t happen. Sent Christmas cards and stuff, but never followed through.

    Guess I need to work on that….

  293. Wiser,
    Sorry bro. Thats gotta hurt…

  294. >>>I hope I work in an office again some day.

    AWESOME!!!!

  295. I hope I work in an office again some day.

    Someone here posted a pic of sriracha candy canes, heh heh heh.

    The one I remember from a loooooooong time ago was the guy who swapped out Chiclets for Feen-a-mint. We didn’t see the thief for a couple of days.

  296. http://www.geeky-gadgets.com/geeky-toys-the-usb-wireless-rocket-launcher/

    Shut up and take my money!

  297. Wiser, my sympathies for your friend.

  298. The first Harry Potter movie is on.

    I’m going to feel dirtydirtydirty when I eventually feature Emma Watson on Load HEAT.

  299. I’ll drive across the country to go to another meat-up!

  300. I’ll gladly point you guys to some awesome local places to stay in beautiful Fernandina Beach.

  301. I’m going to feel dirtydirtydirty when I eventually feature Emma Watson on Load HEAT.

    I won’t. I’m pretty sure if I’d been 12 when she was 12 I’d have chased her around the schoolyard and given her a card on her birthday. I wouldn’t touch the young lady in real life, but she makes me wish I were a young guy that actually had a chance with her.

  302. DAMN YOU KYLE ORTON!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  303. HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!

    Orton Romos.

  304. Holy shit, that is priceless.

  305. Fuck you wiser.

  306. >>>Fuck you wiser.

    HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

  307. >>>Fuck you wiser.

    Yet another reason I vote “yes”

    BCoch, my goal here was to get every Hostage to say that to me at least one time.

  308. The only thing missing is the pic of Orton sitting on his ass

  309. >>>Fuck you wiser.

    He just lays there and sweats.

  310. >>>>He just lays there and sweats.

    You forgot the tears

  311. Rats. I’ve never said FYW.

  312. >>>Rats. I’ve never said FYW.

    There’s still time, angel

    Why is it everyone that bashes the original book *always!* bashes the “fascist” government in the book.

    My question is, where is the evidence of said fascism? There’s a good deal of nationalistic sentiment, sure. But the actual structure of the government isn’t discussed enough to actually be described as fascist. Or am I missing something?

  315. Or am I missing something?

    Perhaps that most people who accuse other people, books, movies, etc. of being fascist have only the slightest notion of what the term actually means.

  316. The idea that citizenship/suffrage is a privilege to be earned is fascism as far as most media types are concerned. If the underclasses can’t vote themselves entitlements, it must be evil, right?

    MMM at 605am. Bedtime.

  317. Mini rant: Since when did the Terror Attack on the Boston Marathon become nothing more than a prelude to the Sux winning the WS? Some of the year in review BS recaps that Dan watches make me want to scream.

  318. Hmm, wondering if I’ve actually said FYW.

  319. I’m pretty sure I’ve called him a DIRTY MOTHERFUCKER, but I don’t think I’ve ever said FYW.

  320. I highly recommend it. Very fulfilling.

  321. I killed it.

  322. Nah. Blame Wiser.

  323. The devil appeared like Jesus through the steam in the street
    Showin’ me a hand I knew even the cops couldn’t beat
    I felt his hot breath on my derp as I dove into the heat
    It’s so hard to be a saint when you’re just a boy out on the street
