  1. Oh, yeah, that’ll do pig dog.

  4. Nice. Oh, hey Scottw, your face looks all sticky. Here, have a moist owlet. http://i.imgur.com/u8GqZ9R.gif

  5. You are so weird.

  6. Protein shake time.

  7. Though I admit a moment of indecision when there was just ice in the bottom of the blender.

    Margaritas were considered.

  8. Protein shake time.

    Uttered in a thread of men, this struck me as funny.

    Also, good morning.

  10. Accuweather predicting another polar vortex. Atleast two days of heavy snow on east coast and midwest. I want to make mandigo sized ice dildos and shove them up the asses of Al Gore, Michael Mann and other global warm-mongers.

  12. Thank you for that image Tushar.

    $4.94/gallon for propane yesterday FFS.

  13. How much were the accessories?

  14. So lately, it seems as if every day the MSN homepage runs a story about the ladies of the UFC.

    And at least one story lamenting the amount of violence in the NFL.

  15. Then, of course, there is always a story or two about a gay athlete, sometimes professional, sometimes amateur.

    It’s like the lesbians have taken over the newsrooms.

  16. Do you need to speak a lot of French up by you, Jimbro?

  17. Up in Aroostook County they speak more French. It’s a bastardized version of French-Canadian-English. When they speak normal English they have a French accent which is easy on the ears. My favorite scrub tech is a young woman from The County and she says some things with that accent which always makes me giggle.

  18. I already own the accessories MJ. That’s how they hook you. Cheap accessories. Once you get the taste, the hook is set and you’ll whore your own mother for that sweet propane fix.

    You are up awful early for a Girl Next Door & margarita night, MJ.

  20. Good morning. Pancake breakfast after church today. I abused the hospitality. They’re gonna need a lot of old ladies and children with tiny appetites to make up for me.

  21. That’s the neck of the woods my grandmother was from. She was the second to last of 11 kids, and only she and baby sister were born in ME; the rest all in Canada. It was always fun to hear them talk when we would go back for a visit.

  22. Are those Arcadians, Jimbro? Or am I thinking of a different part of the country?

    Louisiana has Cajuns – they have some sort of French ancestry; some of those older folks you need an interpreter to understand.

  23. You are up awful early for a Girl Next Door & margarita night, MJ.

    Isn’t the definition of a GND that she is the type that you give a kiss goodnight at her door without any hanky-panky?

    Or am I a hopelessly out-of-it middle-aged prude?

  24. They’re all one big family

    http://acim.umfk.maine.edu/language.html

    Lewiston used to be known for its French population. Now it’s all about Somalians.

  25. These days, the GND will give you a handy and store your bullwhips away for you.

  26. -26 this week in North Dakota
    Not windchill btw

  27. Jazz
    Thanks for the Jobim link
    Really good

  28. That was a pretty awesome date.

  29. Well do tell

  30. Tifw, yes.

  31. Mr. TiFW ran across this video the other night – a REALLY cool expanding table:

  32. Protein shake time.

    Here. http://i.imgur.com/u8GqZ9R.gif

  33. Glad to hear that your date went so well, Mundane – you deserve a wonderful lady in your life ♥♥♥

  34. That was a pretty awesome date.

  35. It was just nice…I had to work yesterday afterward and so did my sitter…LOL.

    Jennifer’s mom, Carmen, is Panamanian by birth, which she said she needed to tell me because she hates Mexican food. Jennifer’s father died in 1999 from a combination of injuries from a drunk driving accident (he was sober) and skin cancer. Jennifer is one of those waitresses that are only going to be working at the place until she gets through college. She is studying to be a special ed teacher, and wants to work with moderate to severe end of the spectrum.

    Carmen works for Wells Fargo as a branch assistant manager, I found out.

    I was worried about where to take my date because I had no idea what she was like or even what she liked. Little did I know that it wasn’t up to me.

    First off, this was the best date I had been on since I was single the first time. Anyway, Carmen came over with Jennifer and so I had the interesting experience of having my date meet my mom and son and entrusting her daughter to watch my son and mom. This was weird.

    Anyway, we went in her car to the date. Her first words to me, “Jennifer said you were in the Army, yes?” When I answered yes, she said, “Good! I like army men.” I had this sudden urge to tell her a whole bunch of stories, some of which would be less than true.

    We went to lunch at one of those places that is trying to be a 50’s diner, complete with a jukebox and memoribilia, and since I had to be going to work, as Jennifer did as well. We both knew it was ending in a couple hours, but we talked for the entire time.

    She agreed to a second date. So either I was more charming than normal or she has some sort of pennace to do and dating me counts toward absolution.

    Oh, and work yesterday was awesome. A party of 15 came in for a party of some sort and just wanted a lot of wings, fries and alcohol. And they tipped well afterward.

  36. She agreed to a second date. So either I was more charming than normal or she has some sort of pennace to do and dating me counts toward absolution.

    That made me almost snort coffee. Glad you had a nice time!

  37. Steel cut oatmeal on the range for lunch and in the crock pot for the morning.

    As you might guess, Paula has been working nights and I’m in charge of the menu. The boys live on peanut butter toast, cereal and frozen pizzas.

  38. That’s great Mundy. Fingers crossed for you man!

  39. You are up awful early for a Girl Next Door & margarita night, MJ.
    —————————–
    Pupster, I’m boring. She was in Tampa and I drank about 3/4 of one of the margaritas, then ended up tossing the rest.

    I’m sort of hooked on World at War. It’s a short 26 part documentary on WWII. The big one.

    That’s how awesome my life is! FUCK YEAH!

  40. Can someone pleas sum up Mundane for me?

    Blowie or no blowie?

  41. The World at War was one of the first good documentary series about WWII. I’ve seen it all the way through several times.

  42. *hands head.

    Ok, that was actually kind of sweet. Like a boss.

  43. WHAT?

    The taste test was phony?

    I feel so used and violated.

    http://is.gd/QKQI0o

  44. Sounds like a great date, Mundy!

    MJ, World at War is an awesome series – certainly worth staying at home to watch :-)

    And this is the type of teacher/school system that we are expected to give more tax dollars to? I don’t think so:

    http://nypost.com/2014/02/09/murry-bergtraum-hss-blended-learning-a-scam-whistleblowers/

    We need more teachers like Mundane and his ilk –

  45. Can someone pleas sum up Mundane for me?
    Blowie or no blowie?

    That made me GLAR.

  46. Listening to yesterdays Wiserbud radio show featuring Lt Col Phat. It is amusing to see these two guys pretend to be respectable people, instead of the jackholes they are.

  47. L, R: H2, IB

  48. Tushar,

    I was hoping someone would call in and slip in a bullwhip reference.

    Like I said, had to keep it classy for Naugatuck.

    Plus, wiserbud really seems to love the job and he’s getting good at it.

    That doesn’t happen too often in life. Would hate to screw it up for him.

  49. That’s awesome mundy.

  50. And this is the type of teacher/school system that we are expected to give more tax dollars to? I don’t think so:

    Those graduates of blended learning are the future of gubmint healthcare providers.

  51. Does anyone know of a good video converter for Vimeo videos? I have a URL address; just need to be able to convert it into something else without infecting my computer with malware

  52. How do you want to convert it? What output format do you want?

  53. TiFW,

    My sim schedule got pushed back. Will email when it gets rescheduled. At least I checked before leaving for the airport this am.

    Bonus is that I get paid 3 hours flight time everyday until I’m done with training. If they want to pay me to stay home, I’m cool with it.

  54. Not a problem, phat – great that you’re getting paid to sit home, though!

  55. TiFW, toss me the URL, and I can reupload it to youtube, or convert it to just about any format you want, then dropbox it to you.

  56. Mommas got a dropbox daddy never sleeps at night!

  57. Cabo Fish Taco, bishes.

  58. Mommas got a dropbox daddy never sleeps at night!

    That made me laugh. Roger Daltry would approve, but you might have fooled Pete Townsend again. :-)

  59. >>>Cabo Fish Taco, bishes.

    TGND come back?

  60. http://tinyurl.com/ovrcd2v

  61. TiFW – that table is really cool

  62. Thanks so much, XBrad – don’t know if the link I sent you will work or not….

    How’s your mom doing today? Hope she is feeling a little bit better ♥♥♥

    Yeah, Jazz – if I had $50,000 just laying around, I might think about ordering one for the TiFW house. Of course, we don’t have a room to put it in, but that’s a minor thing, right?

  63. Mom seems to be making some improvement, but not a whole lot. Heart rate is still uncomfortably high, and breathing is terribly labored. Will her lungs clear before she gets too weak? That’s the question.

  64. Oh, forgot to tell you guys – Mr. TiFW found a flyer in the yard from Planned Parenthood, suggesting that our neighbors call them up if we are “Wondering what Obamacare means for you”.

    Of course, they don’t show the spanking new “facility” just up the street from us on their little map – I’m guessing that’s the one where they do all of their “procedures”.

    Thinking of calling them up and asking if I can come by for a mammogram or prenatal care; ask them if their obstetricians are board-certified, etc.

  65. Cabo Fish Taco, bishes.

  66. Go for it, Teresa!

  67. Mare on Mother’s Day.

  68. Now that it looks like I will have a few days off, I have to get started on household chores. Ugh.

    Boxes to break down in the garage, re-caulk the shower clean out the garage.

    I should have ‘people’ for this.

  69. People must have taken their butthead pills this morning. At least I got to listen to Porfirio helping a woman from Haiti. He’s a spanish speaking DR, she spoke heavily accented English. I’m easily entertained.

  70. Boxes to break down in the garage, re-caulk the shower clean out the garage.

    Are you watching me on webcam?

    I should have ‘people’ for this.

    It’s amazing how you DO when you’re traveling/busy, but downtime demands keeping one’s time occupied.

    And, in houses with kids, you know who the ‘people’ are!

  71. I helped a guy yesterday that had these hands.

  72. Mr. TiFW is refinishing the mantelpiece over the fireplace – we felt compelled to “make it better”, which of course means a whole lot more time spent worrying about piddly little things that no one will ever see, but which need to be done to make everything right.

    The continuing saga is being chronicled for posterity (i.e. mostly for our amusement); I’m thinking about doing an ongoing series where I discuss all of the changes which have been made over the years that we’ve been in the house, since most of them were pre-Internet/blog technology.

    It actually has some tenuous ties to a Fort Worth institution which was started in the 1930’s and is still in existence.

  73. Are those thumbs or sixth fingers, Scott?

  74. Calling Dr. Jimbro!!!

  75. 10 fingers and no thumbs. It’s a thing apparently.

  76. Wow – that’d make for a hell of a “shocker.”

  77. That is creepy as hell.

  78. It’s rare, but I can’t find the odds listed anywhere.

  79. Is he able to use the fifth finger as a thumb? Seems like it would be a bit awkward, but if he’s been like that all his life, I assume he’s figured out a way to make it work for him.

    It is freaky, though….

    Wonder what his nickname was in school?

  80. Drive-by

  81. So called triphalangeal thumb. I’ve never seen it in real life, only textbooks.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3050097

    If I ever saw it I’d send the kid to Boston. There’s a guy there that does nothing but kid’s hands.

  82. Whenever he drops stuff people probably tell him he’s all thumbs.

  83. I immediately knew something was odd, but it took forever to figure out what it was.

  84. When I looked for images similar to that I came across the term “fingerization” of the thumb.

    *fingerizes the blog*

  85. I found it as a possible symptom of Holt-Oram syndrome. I guess there is a good chance that guy had heart issues as well.

  86. Yeah, can be part of that. Another one I’ve run across in books and exams only. It’s pretty common for cardiac, renal and skeletal anomalies to be grouped together.

  87. Did you post that on gawker, scott? Or, was that the best illustration of the condition you could find?

  88. It’s pretty common for cardiac, renal and skeletal anomalies to be grouped together.

    What should I have gotten along with my giant…? Um, yeah.

  89. Obamacare scam is Scam of the Year 2013:

  90. *fingerizes the blog*

    *leaves a $50 on the dresser for Jimbro*

  91. Google image search Jazz.

  92. $50? what happened to @20?

  93. I have soft fingers TGSG

  94. The son of a co-worker was born without middle fingers. He had some kind of surgery early to modify his hands so he wouldn’t have a crab-pinch hold.

  95. Cyn, did you send this guy an invite yet?

  96. I took care of a girl with a cleft foot years ago. Her dad had cleft hands. He was polite and always shook hands at the end of the visit.

    http://tinyurl.com/kwbq748

    (his weren’t that dramatic)

  97. Yeah, it’s the nepotism. Remove that aspect of this story and everyone’s good with rest.

    http://m.ctpost.com/local/article/Trumbull-Democrats-allege-Herbsts-violate-5259516.php

    We’re doomed.

  98. I hate that nepotism shit.

    *says the 4th generation to work at the family business*

  99. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1pYdZlL0VK0

  100. 4th generation? I thought the 3rd generation always killed family businesses.

  101. Not in our case scott. My dad expanded the business to an enormous extent.

    Of course, the economy of the last 5 years has shrunk it right back down.

  102. Good day, persons of questionable parentage.

  103. I guess she wasn’t happy with the amount of meat between her buns.

    http://rapidcityjournal.com/news/local/rapid-city-man-says-female-hardee-s-boss-made-sex/article_3e382e64-09ca-59a7-82c1-918f70a65ac1.html

  104. >>>I hate that nepotism shit.

    Not one single person who commented seems at all bothered that

    A) a teacher… Not an administrator, but a teacher was pulling down ~$140k per year

    B) Said teacher will retire with $106k per year, soon to not be subject to state income taxes because fair

    C) most incredibly, there is a process in place where a teacher can retire then immediately get re-hired to the same position and now receive both the retirement pay and the regular paycheck!

    This guy will now pull down almost $250,000 per year for working 8 months out of the year.

    I’m gonna fucking slap the next person who whines to me about how little teachers get paid.

  105. Bcoch, the business belongs to your family. Handing it over to next generation is not nepotism. If the CEO dad, who does not own the business, or even a majority share in it, gives his son or nephew a plum spot in the company, that is nepotism.

  106. I would almost not be that bothered by that story if the scumbag was re-hired at a starting teacher’s salary.

    But How the fuck does this system allow for this leech to both retire and capitalize on his seniority?

    And he’s only 57. So he’ll be pulling down millions in taxpayer dollars before he croaks.

    Un-fucking-believable

  107. It will be interesting to see if that story gets any legs before next Saturday.

    ‘Cause you can be damn fucking sure I’m going to talk about it on my show.

  108. >>>‘Cause you can be damn fucking sure I’m going to talk about it on my show.

    In that case, I might have to listen.

  109. Cyn, did you send this guy an invite yet?

    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/BhMNQmeCcAAuipP.png:large

    Ha! I’m ON it. A great meat-up addition. I wonder if his name is Steve too.

  110. >>>In that case, I might have to listen.

    Good idea. That way you will already be fully up to speed when I need to hire you to defend me in my malicious slander case.

    Is “absence of malice” still a valid defense if I am totally and completely full of malice?

  111. >>>Good idea. That way you will already be fully up to speed when I need to hire you to defend me in my malicious slander case.
    Is “absence of malice” still a valid defense if I am totally and completely full of malice?

    1) Not a lawyer. Well, not one that can practice. My bar membership is “inactive”. Allows me to keep my license but I don’t have to keep up on Continuing Legal Education and it reduces my membership fees by close to half.

    2) Truth is an absolute defense.

  112. HA HA HA
    When cops picked him up he was still wearing the flower pot.

    When he gets out of jail he should move to Florida.

  113. DING DING DING

    No Shit – ha ha ha ha! We should dip into the H2 Slush Fund™ to help make sure he gets to our party. What’s a good meat-up without a Random Steve at this point?!

  114. I know my first name is Phteven.

  115. *snorts*

  116. But How the fuck does this system allow for this leech to both retire and capitalize on his seniority?

    If it’s any consolation, we had that shit here too a few years back, with the city of Phoenix police chief, IIRC. It was a big fucking deal (though I didn’t pay much attention because I’m not in Phoenix proper).

  117. Double dippers

  118. Like the police chief getting his job back, with back pay, because there were no prior written warnings about covering up crime scenes.

  119. Double dippers

    Hey! None of that pron talk here, mister; we’re a family blog!

  120. Sounds totally legit to me, Scott.

  121. I’m not in Phoenix proper

    If you were MC Hammer, you’d be proper wherever you lived.

  122. >>>Like the police chief getting his job back, with back pay, because there were no prior written warnings about covering up crime scenes.

    Yeah, I saw that too.

    Are we, as a society, getting worse or are we just more aware of the incredible douchebaggery of our civil servants?

  123. I think news of the douchebaggery is just more widely disseminated these days, wiser.

  124. I think “public servants” have been emboldened by their unions and the lawlessness practiced by the party they support.

  125. >>>Double dippers

    Our esteemed Senator Blumenthal is also a double dipper.

    Getting both a retirement check from his time as CT AG and one for being a Senator.

    And no one has a problem with this, I guess. Hell, even my supposedly intelligent conservative brother said “hey, if those are the rules, he’s just playing by the rules.”

    Ummmm….. And who makes the rules?

  126. State employees only get fired for murder.

  127. I really need to learn to turn this off on Sundays.

    It’s the only day of the week where I am not be holding to someone other than me and my family.

    Then I see something like that Trumbull story and it just makes me want to storm into an SEIU meeting swinging a half-empty bottle of vodka.

  128. >>>State employees only get fired for murder.

    Fired? HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    “Administrative leave.”

  129. As much as I’m loving this radio gig, I’m not sure it’s gonna be good for my health.

    Wiserbride has taken to purchasing the olives I use in my martinis by the gallon.

    #truestory

  130. “>>>State employees only get fired for murder.

    Fired? HAHAHAHAHA!!!!”

    After two written warnings.

  131. Our esteemed Senator Blumenthal is also a double dipper.

    Getting both a retirement check from his time as CT AG and one for being a Senator.

    And his Army pension, too!

  132. >>>And his Army pension, too!

    Additional pay for his time in Viet Nam too.

    Probably gets a stipend as a victim of Agent Orange too.

  133. >>>Yeah, I saw that too.
    Are we, as a society, getting worse or are we just more aware of the incredible douchebaggery of our civil servants?

    Yes.

    >>>Then I see something like that Trumbull story and it just makes me want to storm into an SEIU meeting swinging a half-empty bottle of vodka.

    Why would you waste vodka?

  134. My RCIA sponsor and his wife were in Kentucky and visited a the distillery that bears my family name. It’s not actually my family — or even very good whiskey, really — but I now have a shot glass with my name on it.

  135. Leon Beam?

  136. Leon Turkey.

  137. >>>Why would you waste vodka?

    Long story. Well, actually, short story.

    Was walking to breakfast at the hotel the Sunday morning after a meat-up.

    Was still wearing the suit from the night before and carrying a half-full bottle of vodka.

    I walked by aerating room full of postal workers, screaming about how they deserve more money and bennies. The remarks I heard were infuriating.

    Just then, Dave walks by. I rope him in and tried to get him to storm the room with me.

    Dave convinced me that breakfast was waiting and if I wamted to take on a roomful of postal workers, I was on my own.

    So we went and had a nice breakfast.

  138. >> Then I see something like that Trumbull story and it just makes me want to storm into an SEIU meeting swinging a half-empty bottle of vodka.

    HAHAHAHAHA.. wait, I thought it was the postal workers?

    Anyway, the vodka was not wasted, but me and wiserbud were.

  139. Leon Makers Mark?

  140. Jack Caruthers.

    I have had it, it’s horrible.

  141. >>>Anyway, the vodka was not wasted, but me and wiserbud were.

    “I’d like 3/4 of a glass of tomato juice.”

  142. Today’s RN is Brooke and the student nurse is Heather. Welcome to Orange county.

  146. Outstanding wiser.

    Just one question….was this before or after Dave busted ass and fell in the ocean?

  147. That water was warm.

  148. >> “I’d like 3/4 of a glass of tomato juice.”

    Orange juice for me thank you.

    I love how the waitress just shrugged and said “ok”

    BC this was a couple years after I took an unplanned dip into Long Island Sound

  149. It was surprisingly warm, yes.

  150. I have spent very, very little time in the ocean. I’m okay with that.

  151. wiserbud saved my arm

  152. It was our whiskey, he just poured.

  153. Thank God he was there Dave

  154. That was a good night. That waitress was awesome.

  155. It was urine, not water.

  156. Long Island Sound is only 50% urine.
    Solids and water make up the rest.

  157. >>>Long Island Sound is only 50% urine.
    Solids and water make up the rest.

    But mostly solids.

  158. It rained a lot that month.

  159. “Do me a solid” means something different on the shores of the Sound.

  160. Extra runoff. Spectacular.

  161. That’s what I mean, Long Island Sound is a cesspool. I gashed my elbow and wiser poured Scott’s booze on the wound to save it.

    I don’t think I drank any of it, which was wrong of me but I was bleedin out.

  162. It’s a giant toilet, but people swim in it every summer.

  163. So OKAYYY scott and laura saved me too. Actually she fished me out, he was too busy laughing.

  164. Did anybody see anybody else’s name on a store’s list of people who write bad checks today?

  165. I almost died laughing.

  166. I’ve seen the pictures. I would have laughed too.

  167. The fall was amazing. It took forever.

    He almost saved it for 20 seconds or so.

  168. >> That was a good night. That waitress was awesome.

    This!

  169. Obama is making me get up at 4:00.

    I hate him.

    Good night.

  170. It was a two stage fall. I slipped off the slippery rock in my stupid Nikes into a knee deep shelf.. holding my Corona up outta the water.

    Then I slipped again into the drink over my head. I still held the beer out of the water in a “SAVE YOURSELVES” kind of move. But Laura, knowing the water was septic poured it out anyway.

  171. MMM@615AM.

    Bedtime.

  172. I heard an iPhone lost it’s life as well.

  173. the iphone was a goner

  174. iPhones are a scam

  175. Missed the whole damned thing. But I did get a dramatic reenactment of Wiser saving Dave’s arm (without wasting any more actual booze, of course).

    I did get to hear Dave walk around in his squishy shoes all night, though, which was funny.

  176. We should have an official “Dave on the rocks” drink.

  177. Well, we didn’t have anything quite that awesome at last year’s NoVa MeetUp. Although apparently, me yelling “You Fucking RINO” at Gabe in the middle of a crowded bar was entertaining.

    And opening a bar tab on behalf of a moron who couldn’t be there. The bar maid’s response to “This is for anyone mentioning ‘Mary Poppins’.”

    “You’re going to have to give a little fucking more than that.”

  178. Here is a dramatic reenactment:

    http://is.gd/DNfzL7

  179. Dave was wearing a grass skirt?

  180. Dave wore a grass skirt for the plunge? Hawt.

  181. As we left the bar in St. Louis on the night of the brick wall, I went to the bar to settle up.

    Everyone was already in the bus.

    The barmaid came to me with about 8 credit cards, asking if all of these people were settling up as well.

    I had the perfect opportunity to put everyone’s drinks on Michael’s card, but decided not to.

    I hate myself for that to this day.

  182. *fist bumps, BC*

    Hey – how’s grampacock doing?

  183. That was the night of the school bus ride, yes? Man, there were some drunk people there. *cough*

  184. Shit. I can’t remember. Did I update you guys???

    Docs cut him loose on Friday afternoon. He’s home now. A physical therapist is going to come by a couple times a week to help him regain his strength. He’s got a long list of things the doc told him to do. Like keep his lower legs elevated as often as possible, wear those compression sock things, he’s got an antibiotic that he has to take for two more weeks.

    Oh. So we found out that grandpa decided to forego Medicare Part D because it was “too expensive.” That came back to bite him in an unbelievably expensive way.

  185. I don’t remember a school bus.

  186. drunk bus ride was one of the best nights of my life.

    mostly cause Cyn sat next to me.

  187. But you remembered the tiger.

  188. Ahhhhh. Tiger!

    Bedtime, fools.

  189. It wasn’t as good as flight to DFW from CT but it was close.

    Clouds.

  190. D’awwwww, it was a very good ride.

  191. I wanna hear about MJ introducing this drink on Wiser’s show next week.

    http://m.drinksmixer.com/drink7721.html

  192. Nighty dreams, MJ

  193. And of course , the new nurse is Chynna.

  194. >> D’awwwww, it was a very good ride.

    You’re welcome.

  195. I just had a japanese Single malt whiskey called yamazaki. That stuff is good. Takes you to wonderland without burning your palate.

  196. BCoch,
    My Medicare Part-D through Humana is $12/month!
    I was paying $540/year for my BP meds.
    They are covered with no co-pay under that plan.
    Well worth it.
    It is, however, mail-order. They also cover through the Wallmart Pharm, but there is a small co-pay involved…

  197. And of course , the new nurse is Chynna.

    I call b.s., Xbrad – I have seen that heard about that particular porno flick.

  198. Equal parts jack daniels, Wils turkey and a dark rum? Nothing else? Yeah, Fuck face sounds about right.

  199. *sends Dave another check, just for the memories*

  200. Isn’t Dave supposed to pay you?

  201. “And of course , the new nurse is Chynna.”

    Let me guess. About 28-35?

  202. I second the “Dave on the Rocks” drink idea.

  203. I am expecting MJ to do this one soon:

    http://m.drinksmixer.com/drink10373.html

  204. >>>And of course , the new nurse is Chynna.

    Bom-chicka-wow-wow….

    /pjm

  205. Wiser, that drink could turn a straight man into a fruit.

  206. ok I’m blushing

  207. >>>Isn’t Dave supposed to pay you?

    Have you seen Cyn?

    {{{{{{shudder}}}}}}

  208. I survived the shift from hell. Days like today, I H8 my shortcut taking co-workers that are too fucking stupid to breathe.

  209. >>>ok I’m blushing

    1 martini is not enough and 3 is too many….

  210. Dave fell at the IB party, too and almost landed in Michael’s pool.

  211. Ok Wiser
    When am I going on your show?

  212. I’m sensing a pattern.

  213. Dave is kind of a klutz

  214. >>>Ok Wiser
    When am I going on your show?

    Get yer self edumacated on the Keystone pipeline.

    This weekend.

  215. Have you seen Cyn?

    {{{{{{shudder}}}}}}

    Don’t blame me – you’re the one who paid for all access webcam time. How was I to know you were watching when I was buffing my heels??

  216. Hey TJ, why are you Frackers causing earthquakes in OK?

  217. *slides a drink down the bar to Oso*

  218. >>>I’m sensing a pattern.

    He hates that dream.

    That reminds me…. I need to read the eulogies again.

    Holy shit, those were hilarious.

  219. It’s fun scaring the fucking Okies

  220. Wiser
    Will do

  221. The Eulogies are damn funny. Prob be even more funny if I got most of the jokes.

  222. Cyn, stopped at Total Wine on the way home. I’m 2 Evans in. Gingy had lost her Penguin, so we spent 20 minutes looking for him.

  223. >>>The Eulogies are damn funny. Prob be even more funny if I got most of the jokes.

    Yeah, lots of inside stuff there.

    Back story is that we lost a hostage a few years back. I thought “how funny it would be for a hostage to show up and give a Hostage send-off?”

    Sounded a little creepy at first to some people, but it turned out really well.

    Truly one of my better ideas.

  224. And of course , the new nurse is Chynna.

    I thought most nurses were Fylypyna these days.

  225. You’ll get them all after a while, BC. Also, good to hear they set your grampa free, that’s fantastic! Sorry to hear about the Part D, suckage.

  226. >> Truly one of my better ideas.

    Low bar.

  227. >> 1 martini is not enough and 3 is too many….

    School night.

    I think I eulogized MCPO, right? I poured my heart into that.

  228. >>>Also, good to hear they set your grampa free, that’s fantastic! Sorry to hear about the Part D, suckage.

    Yeah, the antibiotic they put him on…14 days worth equaled $1600.

    The fuck?!?!?

  229. bcoch, Hostages approach all of life’s sledgehammer moments with humor. Or Diet Dr Pepper. Or both. Some of us replace the DDP with booze. Or add booze to our DDP.

  230. I misused the apostrophe. Don’t care.

  231. Bcoch,
    Did you see my comment re: Part-D?
    Check it out!

  232. ‘Nother long week ahead.

    Nite, y’all

  233. Wiserbud eulogized me so good I want him to do it for realz when I die

  234. Wiser,
    When I got sent to have the “Abdominal Aortic Aneurism” ultrasound, guess who I thought of.
    Made me sad, and a little scared…

  235. I did Chrispy. The plan is to beat grandpa about the head and shoulders and make him sign up during enrollment. Which is Oct 15 – Dec 9.

  236. I misused the apostrophe. Don’t care.

    thas gangsta

  237. >>>I misused the apostrophe. Don’t care.

    Hotspur just died a little.

  238. I’m not funny enough, nor do I write well enough to properly eulogize Hotsnausages. I could like, totes, ummm, express my feelings and stuff about how like awesome and stuff that you peeps are and like funneh and ya know umm caring.

  239. Huh. So oso is a 16 yr old valley girl. Good to know.

  240. I’m a 50 yr old that has a tendency to talk like the last person I talked to…gay guys are totally valley speak. Mebbe it is just the gheys I know. Ew.

  241. Huh.

    So, what am I, the youngest commenter here by about 15 years?

  242. Mrs Peel deserted us, carries the circle, yep….

  243. I can’t believe I missed Michael “I am Batman” ‘s REAL birthday. (Note to self: Shares B-day with my 4th Aunt Maria, but the only Maria that uses Maria as her name)

  244. Speaking, respectfully, of PA, while I’ve been thinking of cashing a few CDs and paying for the surgery myself, I can’t help but think of what killed her.
    The surgery involves cutting through the anterior abdominal-wall just below where the abdominal aorta splits into the two femoral arteries.
    That is exactly where the surgeons were fucking around when they killed her!
    While, yeah, losing the pain would be totally cool, having a surgeon cutting in that area just totally freaks me out.
    It takes a very little “fuck-up” to kill or cripple you.
    I could cash-in the CD’s, but now, I’m afraid. I think I’m just gonna hurt for the rest of my life.
    Yeah, coward.
    So it goes…

  245. Elective surgery sucks. I prefer emergency surgery where I don’t have any options.

  246. Rant on: Lobo Basketball is the only game in town. Period. A few years ago, we went to a chain before a game and our server worked with the kitchen to get us in and out before “Tip off”. Got a great tip. Last night, our biggest home game of the year, we went to a restaurant that was totally overwhelmed. 2 servers. Every table full. We walked and went to another UNM area restaurant. Server kept apologizing about the length of wait. Manager didn’t even know it was a “Sold Out Game Night”. How fucking hard is it to look at a fucking basketball schedule?

  247. BTW, in RL, I cuss A LOT. I drop F-bombs like a Jersey native.

  248. RL cousin used to hold Woody Hayes’ mic cord on the sidelines. His maternal Uncle dotted the “i” on script Ohio. His daughter married a Meechegan Alum. Posts lots of pics of cute kids on FB. Except for the Meechegan gear. Does Ohio have a CYDF equivalent for abuse calls? What parent in their right mind puts Wolverine gear on a baby?

  249. Hmmm…

  250. I

  251. made

  252. it

  253. through

  254. die?

  255. the

  256. rain

  257. Well…

  258. Kicks marijuana Alex in the jimmy. Punches Sean for the Wolverine pic that just pisses me off.

  259. True Story: I promised Dan that I wouldn’t “Mouth off” and start fights any more. Old bat at the Lobo game kept pissing me off. “Oh, I guess this is a standing game?” I wanted to throw her “Words with friends” playing phone across The Pit. I may have kept my knee in the middle of her back on purpose during timeouts. Still wanted to punch her.

  260. I’m 5’3 and 3/4″. Not 64″. Not 63″ I just noticed my ID has me at 5’3 and with brown eyes. I’ve had hazel eyes my whole life and I’m closer to 5’4″ than to 5’3″.

  261. You’re 5’3″ with brown eyes.

  262. Starts humming Karen Carpenter singing “Top of the World” ear worm. Shoves MJ down a flight of stairs doing my best Cagney: Top of the world Ma! impression.

  263. I’m almost 5’4 with hazel eyes!

  264. Before my hair darkened up, everyone assumed I was a blue-eyed ditzy blonde.

  265. I’m a hazel eyed guerra.

  266. You’re 5’3″, brown eyes, and an Anglo.

  267. Half anglo. Taller than 5’3″. Hazel eyes. When I cry or get tired, my eyes are green.

  268. They really must be brown. You’re full of shit!

  269. Hahaha I guess I have to do an eye selfie like Peej.

  270. Oso

    You’re half Anglo?

  271. TJ, more then half. We have German and Irish in the Mexican/Indian woodpile. I’m a direct descendent of Sheriff Brady. My Gutierrez Grand was called “El Deutsche” because he was a Ginger from “Germany”. Grain of salt time. I have an Uncle whose last name is “Polaco” because everyone assumed the family was from Poland. Northern Italy. Priest that moved to NM, dropped his vows, married local. Son Polacos.

  272. That’s why you’re such a Guera

    Nortenos are often mixed

  273. Mongrels even. :)

  274. I guess we all are

    There were lots of Getmans down here before the Mexican Revolution

    My wife’s great grandfather came here on a stagecoach from Germany in 1875
    Juarez had tons of German stores

  275. My Mom was 5’4″. She was the shortest sibling. My Aunt Monica was a 5’10” blonde. The other sisters fell in between. My Aunt Monica was born on 2/29. Her 70th birthday is this week. Kind of. When I was a kid, she used to fuck with us about the whole Leap Year stuff. Her hubby, my Uncle Felix, and his family used to work for Peter Hurd. They show up in a lot of his work.

  276. RL friend’s Grandmother fled Pancho Villa and moved to San Antonio. Grammer’s Dad was from Germany. Grammer was born in Mexico to a German immigrant. She was part of High Society SA before WWII. Was on the Draft Board. Could not confirm her own BC and origin story. Kicked off the draft board and exiled from SA for the duration of the war. Loved Texas. Loved the US. Loved San Antonio. Loved Magnum PI. In that order.

  277. That’s amazing Oso

    Are you all still planning on that EP Chihuahuas game?

  278. Yes. I just don’t know when. My cousin, Celena, got a promotion at J&J. Something blah blah blah engineering. Juarez is part of her territory and they want to piggyback on our EP trip. We’re looking at the baseball schedule and I’ll keep you in the loop.

  279. Long day. Snuggle family cuddle time.

  280. Ok
    Goodnight, mi hija!

  281. G’night, TJ. Besos.

  282. The preacher and the teacher
    Lord, they’re a caution, they are the talk of the town
    And when the gossip gets to flyin’ and they ain’t lyin’
    When the derp goes underground

  283. worky

  284. Yo yo yo! Time to rock it! It’s gonna be a good day. :-)
