Big Boob Friday

Hello Hot Sausages, and welcome to Big Boob Friday…brought to you today by the letters D , I, A, and F.

I’ve not had a lot of time for boobs this week, so the poat content will be inversely proportional to the cup size in this edition.

L to R: this week, Pupster

 

Mrs. Pupster likes this song.

Your model for today was born on June 11, 1989 in Nantwich, Cheshire, England. Just in case you thought your life was a hot mess…Sophie, initially, was a natural 30G in 2007, increasing to 30GG in 2008, but had reduced to 30FF when she chose to have her bust lifted and increased back to a 30GG in April 2009. She has recently stated that she will undergo further breast augmentation surgery in December 2010. She was the winner of the 2009 UK series of Big Brother, and for the last two years Sophie’s main job has been promotional work at motorbike shows in the UK.

Please stop destroying Tokyo long enough to welcome Miss Sophie Reade!

  2. Whereeola??

  3. Black lace? Might just be a shadow. I just enjoy being a pain in the ass this way.

  4. She looks nice.

  5. Like silver dollars, they are.

  6. Wow, now I am awake….and craving milk.

  7. What have I missed?

  8. Scott did some windows. Jewstin built some things. Car in lost several car keys because of running.

  9. Yesterday Scott said he will build that rotating coke bottle mousetrap. I hope he adds a connector to his smoker like col’Alex suggested.
    Let the neighborhood cats eat like kings.

  10. Morning, children.

    Saw a rotating bottle mousetrap in a barn once. Caught about 50 mice in 2 nights.

  11. Holy shit, really?? That many? If we could put a dent in their population I might be able to keep carrots and parsnips in the garden ground this Winter.

  12. >> Black lace? Might just be a shadow. I just enjoy being a pain in the ass this way.

    Well that’s where one would go on those honkers.

  13. Weird, this disappeared.

    You have to put water in the botton of the 5 gallon bucket so the little bastards drown.

  14. Dave?

  15. Pepe, scott used to use a similar drowning trap where you float a reese’s peanut butter cup in the water. The mice just leap in. But this one is better. Because, spinny thing.

  16. Hello wow pie haboobies.

  17. Hey guys, I might actually get to take a vacation for the first time in 20+ years. Any suggestions?

  18. >> Any suggestions

    murder shack

  19. Pride festival in Chicago. They have a cop, construction worker, Indian, a leather man, a cop, and a guy from the Navy.

    They’re missing the last one.

  20. Huh. They have two cops.

  21. What are you dressed as, MJ?

  22. Any suggestions?

    Mackinac Island, though maybe a little later in the Summer.

  23. I sauteed up the ONE morel I found and had it with breakfast. it was big, but still only one.

    yummy though. My kids searched for a few hours yesterday and didn’t find any other ones. I bet the deer eat them if they find ’em.

    I did find a LOT of pretty wild flowers, though. Jack in the pulpits are EVERYWHERE this year, and some were just HUGE. I have pics on facedouche.

  24. Is it just me, or is the fair Miss Sophie’s right boob slightly lower than her left one?

    Her surgeon should be shot for that transgression…..

  25. One’s closer to her heart, so it grows faster.

  26. I don’t know what it is, but blondes do nothing for me.

  27. What are you dressed as, MJ?
    —————————-
    The gimp.

  28. I don’t know what it is, but blondes do nothing for me.

    you could just put a bag over her head?

  29. I don’t know what it is, but blondes do nothing for me.

    Ditto. I can see objectively all the things that ought to make a blonde woman appealing to me, but the chemistry isn’t there at all. Must be years of oppression by Swedes in my DNA or something.

  30. Emma Stone and Anna Faris ruined their looks with dye jobs, IMO.

  31. Theresa, if you are really interested, Sophie’s had so much work done on her chesticles they put in zippers.

  32. And Lindsay Lohan as well. The drugs didn’t help either.

  33. Blondes have more fun.

  34. you could just put a bag over her head?
    —————————
    Glory bag? Works for me.

  35. I don’t get the blonde indifference, but I will defend your ability to have a preference as long as you like gay marriage and black people.

  36. I don’t believe in gay marriage and am indifferent to black people.

    I’m ready for the camps.

  37. http://is.gd/bJt4hc

  38. Beasn?

  39. And if you like gay black marriage you win the internets.

  40. Brunettes for me as well.

  41. WTF?

  42. Funny.

  43. Not enough stab wounds.

  44. You guys just say that shit so your wives won’t whip the shit out of you.

  45. Nope. Nordics just don’t appeal to me.

  46. I teased MJ a little when we had a drink the other night, 90% of the women I saw in Charlotte were blonde.

  47. Wow, I really fucking resent it when I call a public business and have to keep repeating myself because the person answering the phone can’t understand English too well.

  48. Blonds have watered-down their appeal by the fashion of them looking pretty much identical with all the fake blonds.

  49. Lauraw, can you type a bit slower? I’m not following you.

  50. I teased MJ a little when we had a drink the other night, 90% of the women I saw in Charlotte were blonde.
    —————————
    It’s true. I was out last week and four very attractive blondes were sitting at the bar. All in a row, dressed in backless shirts (is this a thing?), all flirting like the devil looking for a soul to steal.

    Meh.

    The backless shirts were nice, though. There was something really sexy about it.

  51. Years ago, Penelope called the Chamber of Commerce in El Paso. Nobody there spoke English.

  52. Alternatively, women with nice racks have watered down their appeal by the fashion of them looking pretty much identical to women with boob jobs.

  53. Like so:

    http://is.gd/p4R5DO

  54. Interesting, MJ. Were they in a bind because they were way behind, and looking to make a deal?

  55. Alternatively, women with nice racks have watered down their appeal by the fashion of them looking pretty much identical to women with boob jobs.

    Eh, it’s just the women who crave the blond look all seem to crave the EXACT same blond look.

    They all start to look alike to me.

  56. Our Mosquito Magnet machine died last year. Backyard is unlivable this year due to mosquitoes. We caved and picked up a new one. Hope it works as well as the old one did.

  57. Scott should make a mosquito magnet with a soda bottle and peanut butter.

  58. *gives Carin a peanut-butter sandwich with lots of mosquitoes stuck in the peanut butter*

    You like crunchy style PB, right?

  59. Interesting, MJ. Were they in a bind because they were way behind, and looking to make a deal?
    ———————————
    I don’t think so. They were younger than I am–late 20s? I think they just knew they looked like hot shit.

  60. They all start to look alike to me.
    ——————–
    ^^^^This

  61. You like crunchy style PB, right?

    Sorry, I switched to almond butter only. I’ll give this sammich to one of my kids.

  62. He’s putting out the new machine now. I’m so essited. I might be able to plant stuff next week!!

  63. This is for Carin. No one else look.

    http://tinyurl.com/nv23e2n

  64. laura makes her own mustard now. She don’t need dat bottle crap!

  65. SHOW ME YOUR MORELS

  66. She seems OMFG LOOK AT THE FUCKING BODY ON THAT GODDESS!!1!11!! nice.

  67. Blonde, brunette, redhead.. who cares? As long as she has a nice personality, amirite guys?

  68. >_>

    <_<

  69. I could be wrong, but it seems to me that Pupster may have cut and pasted his description of the lovely Miss WhateverHerNameIs:

    She has recently stated that she will undergo further breast augmentation surgery in December 2010.

  70. Those self-watering planters that are so expensive? Bah. Take a regular large cheap pot or plant tub, the kind that comes with NO HOLES in the bottom.

    Drill a couple small holes in the SIDE of the container, several inches up from the bottom. Pack the bottom of the container firmly with wet hay or straw, up to a couple inches above the side holes you just drilled.

    You can stand a length of pipe or conduit in the hay that reaches the top soil level, if you want to pour water directly into the bottom of the tub instead of top-watering the plants like normal.

    Fill the pot the rest of the way with a good coarse potting soil, wetting down the mix with water every few inches to help soil settle into the top of the straw, and plant your plants.

    Ta-dah.

    I give this idea to the world.

  71. Bottle-mouse-trap……done.

  72. We already have our first mosquito customers.

    Killing all kinds of stuff this weekend.

  73. I had to buy a new power supply for our mosquito thang.

  74. Then you better get going on the self-watering planters. Laura ain’t got all day.

  75. I’m building one this weekend. The mouse keeps licking the trap clean

  76. Is this the mosquito thing that basically vacuums them up and burns them?

  77. This is for Carin. No one else look.

    fuchers.

    ‘Each individual wild mushroom shall be inspected and identified by the recognized expert. Only those identified as safe may be sold.”

  78. identifying morels is easy. If you can’t tell the difference, you shouldn’t be eating them.

  79. It doesn’t burn them, it traps them in a net.

    When we got our last machine I doubted the claims. After the first 24 hours I pulled the net out, and threw it in the freezer until they were all dead.

    I dumped the net out and counted over 1200 skeeters. That’s about 750,000 potential future eggs in one day.

  80. Yeah, I saw the propane tank and assumed it was burning them.

    Pretty cool device!

  81. If I go outside and stand still, I will draw a cloud of them.

    In 2-3 weeks they’ll all be dead.

    mwuh ha ha ha

  82. Carin, they want to regulate and control everything.

    A few years ago my daughter wanted to sell baked goods at the local farmers market. She was required to individually wrap each cookie and brownie, etc. and place an ingredients label on every piece.

    It was not good enough to post the ingredients on a placard. It was not good enough to place the goods in paper bags using tongs.

    Oh, and of course she needed a permit.

  83. Blonde, brunette, redhead.. who cares? As long as she has a nice personality, amirite guys?

    Actually, yes. “Totally into me and wants to make me happy, also not stupid” goes a long, long way.

  84. Oh, and of course she needed a permit.

    Revenuers. It’s always the revenuers.

  85. Same thing with bringing treats to class. You can’t make them anymore, you have to buy them.

  86. Polar vortex killed our mosquitoes this year. I haven’t seen one yet. Plenty of noseeums, though.

  87. When HotBride had the inn (different county) she also sold fresh bread and goodies at that local farmers market. In her case even though her restaurant kitchen was licensed and inspected by the health department monthly, she was required to pay another fee and get a permit from the Ag. Dept.

    But Suzie in the next booth over could sell bread from her home oven and wasn’t required to get one.

  88. PS: It was Suzie in the next booth over who reported her to the Ag. Dept.

  89. We thought we were in the clear because of polar vortex and also we didn’t have ANY Snow Mosquitoes this year. Usually we see a cloud of those fuckers in February / March during a warm break.

  90. We have mosquitoes up here.

  91. Competition via regulatory destruction of competitors is how capitalism is supposed to work. Harry Reid told me.

  92. I’m guessing Suzie’s bread wasn’t as good at Hotbride’s?

  93. You have a larger body of water, Car in. I’m pretty sure our ponds and drainage froze fully or nearly solid.

  94. HotBride’s bread was sourdough sprinkled with parmesan, rosemary, and thyme. She’d sell out by 9:30, and have the kitchen staff bring more.

    She also sold sun-dried tomato spread, and sell that out in no time.

    I think Suzie was a tad jealous.

  95. Just ordered a random book on Amazon purely based on the title and what may possibly be the most epic author bio ever:

    Drew Hayes is an aspiring author from Texas who has written several books and found the gumption to publish a few (so far). He graduated from Texas Tech with a B.A. in English, because evidently he’s not familiar with what the term “employable” means. You can read more of his growing work at his website, http://www.drewhayesnovels.com, send him mail and movie offers at Novelistdrew@gmail.com, or just follow his twitter: DrewHayesNovels. Drew has been called one of the most profound, prolific, and talented authors of his generation, but a table full of drunks will say almost anything when offered a round of free shots. Drew feels kind of like a D-bag writing about himself in the third person like this. He does appreciate that you’re still reading, though.

    Drew would like to sit down and have a beer with you. Or a cocktail. He’s not here to judge your preferences. Drew is terrible at being serious, and has no real idea what a snippet biography is meant to convey anyway. Drew thinks you are awesome just the way you are. That part, he meant. Drew is off to go high-five random people, because who doesn’t love a good high-five? No one, that’s who.

    That made me laugh.

    The book I ordered was ‘NPC’s’. If it’s good I’ll let you know.

  96. Anyway, we’re going to a backyard bbq on Sunday. I hope they don’t have clouds of skeeters.

  97. We didn’t have any until about a week ago.

    Now, going outside is torture.

  98. I’m not allergic to them so they don’t really bother me, but they drive HotBride insane.

  99. I just don’t want to get West Nile virus.

    The propane is used to fuel CO2 production, warmth and CO2 is basically what attracts them to people (cause that’s what we exhale).

    It also makes me happy to make extra CO2 because fuck them climate change assholes.

  100. Our lake froze over 2 feet solid. And the skeeters are in the swamp area, not near our house/lake. I’m pretty sure all those froze very hard.

  101. I wonder if I could by a homeless catcher. I’d really like to get rid of them.

  102. buy.

  103. Pupster may have cut and pasted his description of the lovely Miss

    Nothing gets past you, huh Sherlock?

  104. You guys see that video of Obama’s “impromptu” stroll along the National Mall.

  105. Looks like there were more than 4 bunnies at the time of the unfortunate lawn mower incident because I looked yesterday and there 4 in the nest.

    Mr. Beasn put a bucket over the nest so he could finish cutting the lawn.

    Checked this morning and the hole looks empty. Now either momma moved them or something slurped them out of the nest like noodles.

    Lauraw, where were you between the hours of 8pm yesterday and 8am this morning?

  106. Does anyone have this response to Pupster’s repeated use of the suit-guy gif?

    http://is.gd/pp2KUe

  107. You guys see that video of Obama’s “impromptu” stroll along the National Mall.

    No, but I’m sure obama did. Often.

    Nope. But I imagine he’ll be on the View and other sofa shows very soon.

    Ol’ boy (apparently this is racist) is neck deep in failure.

  110. Everybody has the same reaction, no matter what I post. All. The. Same.

  111. Lauraw, where were you between the hours of 8pm yesterday and 8am this morning?

  112. Everybody has the same reaction, no matter what I post. All. The. Same.

    Does someone need a hug?

  113. Good morning and nice boobs. I like the pic of her in jodhpurs.

  114. That’s one of my favorite Simpson’s moments of all time, Wiserbud.

    Second only to :

  115. The koskids were all ‘LOOK AT HOW EVERYONE LOVES HIM!!!1111 TAKE THAT GOPers”.

    Because an edited video of Obama meeting tourists in DC is proof positive that the country is 100% behind him.

    Goebbles would be ashamed.

  116. Does someone need a hug?

    Maybe. Can you wear this?

    http://is.gd/YiowGe

  117. *googles jodhpurs*

    Yeah, me too.

  118. I’ll wear this one if I have to be a blond: Old school.

  119. Because an edited video of Obama meeting tourists in DC

    You sure those were tourists and not paid off Kos kids?

    If I were a tourist, I’d tell him to f*ck off. Wanna bet any real tourists were vetted so noone would tell him to f*ck off?

  120. Deal.

  121. I wouldn’t tell him to fuck off. I’d tell him to fuck off and die. In a fire.

  122. There is not much meat on a baby hasenpfeffer.

    I bet she sews them together to wear as a scarf.

  123. You sure those were tourists and not paid off Kos kids?

    If I were a tourist, I’d tell him to f*ck off. Wanna bet any real tourists were vetted so noone would tell him to f*ck off?

    As I said, I’m sure the video was heavily edited. it didn’t even give the appearance of being a continuing video.

  124. Car in, why do you do that to yourself? .5 seconds into anything with his mug gets my tourettes fired up.

  125. There is not much meat on a baby hasenpfeffer.

    Maybe she’s put them in her dungeon to grow and fatten them up?

    We need to send in a search and rescue team. Oh, wait. I have a better idea.

    #bringbackourbunnies [car in sad face here]

  126. Beasn, I could only make it through a minute and a half.

  127. Well, that’s not racist.

  128. B ahha aahhaaaaa

    Judge rules John Conyers will NOT be on the primary ballot.

    LoL.

  129. Huh. It does work.

    #callCarin

  130. How could that have even gotten to court? His fraudulent team didn’t follow the rules.

    Hit the bricks, asshole.

  131. I like the pic of her in jodhpurs.

    There’s nothing like a woman in jodhpurs and holding a riding crop.

  132. “riding crop”

  133. Conyers is still going to try to get the court to throw out the rules he didn’t follow as unconstitutional. He should have called them “racist” too.

  134. Obama even went so far as to say “The bear is loose”, or some such nonsense.

    Putin must have been peeing himself with laughter at that.

  135. Maybe he’ll get re-elected, die in office, and we can name a public works project after him.

    The Johns Conyers and Dingell sewage treatment facility.

  136. Yea, teresa, I heard that. He has a rather elevated opinion of himself. I’d be embarrassed for him if I didn’t hate him so much.

  137. We need to send in a search and rescue team. Oh, wait. I have a better idea.
    #bringbackourbunnies [car in sad face here]

    HAAAA!

  138. Jodhpurs are the new yoga pants.

  139. He should have called them “racist” too.

    It’s just too bad for him that the guy who made the initial challenge has as much melanin content as Mr. Conyers, huh?

    Kinda hard for that “racism” charge to stick when someone from your own grievance group is the one bringing up the charge….

  140. Obama even went so far as to say “The bear is loose”

    He being the one to ‘loose’ him with his flexibility.

  141. Someone needs to tell Mr. Conyers that he just got “Obama’ed” – everyone knows that’s how he got on some of his ballots way back in the day.

    Black-on-black electoral “violence”, voter ID issues – no wonder the media isn’t covering this story.

    If I could get a schadenboner, it definitely would not go down in 4 hours….

  142. Did anyone get the email to vote for the new Democrat bumper stickers?

    http://is.gd/iGShsK

  143. An old turd vs a new turd.

    Still a turd.

  144. Unintended irony from Teresa’s article :”Horace Sheffield certainly meets the standards that Wayne County voters impose on their member of Congress,” said Mark Grebner, a Michigan Democratic consultant. “I am certain that he fully meets those standards.””

  145. The bar. It is low.

  146. Fiat Chrysler produces two Fiat 500s. The gas-powered Fiat 500 has a base price of $17,300. The electric Fiat 500e runs $32,650, according to Reuters.

    And they lose $14,000 on every electric car.

    http://dailycaller.com/2014/05/22/car-exec-loses-money-on-electric-cars-says-i-hope-you-dont-buy-it-video/

  147. What stops them from just selling those little pedal-powered cars to kids to meet the letter of the law?

  148. Force congress to define “car”, I’ll bet they haven’t.

  149. At least not in such a way as to exclude the pedal car or a Flintstone-mobile.

  150. Watch the Ewan Macgregor series Long Way Around. Trucks driving in rivers (or submerged roads) is common over there because they don’t have any money to fix that shit.

  151. #bringbackourbunnies [car in sad face here]

    Um,
    …ok.Gonna be a few hours. *picks teeth*

  152. How long does it take to cook a bunny?

  153. Oh, wait, you do cook them, right?

  154. Yeah, you gotta cook rabbit all the way. But when they’re that little, you can eat the bones.

  155. I just wrap em with a slice of bacon and half a jalapeno and toss em on the grill

  156. #NoBunniesNoPeace

  157. ‘Sup boobs?

  158. Good plan, Mr. In Texas. Keeps the little things from drying out.

  159. It’s so tasty that way

  160. I was nice to the 2 Jehovah’s Witnesses who came to the door this morning. Made the dogs stay inside and everything.

    Apparently the Muslims aren’t getting all of Obama’s kinsmen. Also noticed that their wives were tag-team witnessing with them all up and down my street.

  161. They came to my house once, but I was on my way to church for my own convalidation so I asked them politely to depart my driveway expeditiously.

  162. That Fucking Guy will just not get off the goddamn television.

  163. *waves at Andy*

    Nothing much. Did a pick-up job w/ Scott this morning and now we have Obamajobs to go to.

    I’m going to prep some chicken for Scott to smoke over the weekend. And also I have to grind some chicken up so I can make this: http://ruhlman.com/2013/03/chicken-sausage/

    Supposed to be a really delicious recipe. I’m going to use frozen schmaltz instead of fatback. And I’m going to skip the sun-dried tomatoes because we hatesss them, preciousss.

  164. I used to live about 2 blocks from a JW hive. I lost the civility after a couple of months of weekly interruptions. I’m probably on a prayer list somewhere.

  165. Just popping in because I feel like this belongs here http://imgur.com/gallery/Y0oJ7

  166. I’m pretty sure Laura is using “chicken” as a code word for “cute little baby bunny.”

  167. OMG mama kitty has her NEW BATCH OF BABY KITTENS out by the pond. SQUEEEEEE

  168. A grey one and three black-and-whites! With eye patches! I know who their daddy is, lol.

  169. After the lawnmower incident she must have moved them to underneath the forsythia. I can’t even stand it. They’re batting at each other and bumbling around on the rocks.

  170. Nice try xbrad but June is gonna be a long month if you don’t step it up.

  171. Let me guess – the show that Obama will be introducing blames the WW on religious zealots and people who hate the gheys.

    And it was really the Muslims who won the war.

  172. Family across the street has some new kittens that were apparently birthed in their garage.

    DD#3 discovered that Rebecca comes in very handy when a 21-year-old young lady wants to see new kittens, but doesn’t want to appear desperate/dorky –

    “C’mon, Rebecca, wanna go see the kittens?”

  173. I’m probably on a prayer list somewhere.

    I can say with certainty that you are, but I don’t know who else’s you might be on.

  174. A grey one and three black-and-whites! With eye patches! I know who their daddy is, lol.

    uh oh….momma kitteh, RUN, IT’S A TRAP!

  175. Awww. That’s sweet.

  176. Good point, beasn.

    *puts note on counter for Scott to check the pond skimmer box when he comes home for lunch*

  177. “C’mon, Rebecca, wanna go see the kittens?”

    BONUS! Cute little sisters are good for something.

  178. >> OMG mama kitty has her NEW BATCH OF BABY KITTENS out by the pond.

    Good bait.

  179. Do you want to play a game?

    Taxpayers paid more than $5 million to create climate change games, including voicemails from the future warning that “neo-luddites” will kill global warming enthusiasts by 2035.

    Columbia University’s Climate Center has received $5.7 million from the National Science Foundation for the university’s “PoLAR Climate Change Education Partnership,” to “engage adult learners and inform public understanding and response to climate change.”

    You have to read some of the ridiculous nonsense they came up with – it’s……well, just see for yourself.

    These people are beyond parody….

  180. We need to find a way to promote our business more better. This is ridiculous.

    Depending on the nature of the work, we make between ten and twenty times as much money in one hour at our business, as we do at our Obamajobs.

    It’s just the consistency and quantity that isn’t quite there. We need one or two more auction houses, or just a few more jobs per month. So frustrating.

    Is there a way to do social media for the business without having it ravage through lauraw’s private email lists?

  181. Comment by lauraw on May 23, 2014 4:06 pm
    Awww. That’s sweet.

    Don’t kid yourself – DD#3 is well-versed in the art of manipulation.

    Taught the Padawan well, I did. :-D

  182. Laura, can’t you create an email account just for the business and tie that to social media?

  183. Maybe ask the auction houses that you already do business with to suggest others who might want to avail themselves of your quality services?

    Or take out an ad on Wiser’s show.

  184. Just popping in because I feel like this belongs here http://imgur.com/gallery/Y0oJ7

    Stupidity of that caliber does not belong here, it belongs locked away for the safety of humanity.

  185. See if the Jehovah’s Witnesses will wear t-shirts with your information.

  186. Been home for the last 7 days.

    Starting to go a little stir crazy.

    Picked up a 2 day trip for Sunday, just to get out of the house and make some extra cash.

    It’s a sweet trip. 1 leg to Portland, 23 hr layover, 1 leg back to Chicago.

    Portland is starting to be my favorite stateside layover.

  187. Colored, I really don’t know how this works. I never joined Faceborg or Linked In or any of that crap. I would have to set up a new different email account just for this, and that would prevent the thing from scouring my contacts lists?

  188. Laura, create a facechimp account for the business and keep it separate from your personal stuff.

    You’d be surprised at the traffic/eyeballs you get.

  189. Laura, yes, there ARE ways to do social media without having everyone you know reading your personal info. Check with Andy. He knows things.

  190. I have tried, Teresa. It doesn’t work that way. This arrangement is hugely convenient and beneficial for the auction house…and therefore they will not promote us to their local competitors. Dig it?

    And the places I have tapped a couple times are not prepared to switch from whatever system they currently have in place. They have to be unhappy with what they are doing, in order to change. So we have to wait and keep popping up under their noses periodically, somehow without being pests, until we get lucky.

  191. Laura,

    Short answer is yes.

    Set up a gmail account and use that to create your business’s Facechimp account.

    Then you can have all of us (or maybe not…) ‘like’ your company and any status updates you post.

  192. I just need to get better educated on this subject, I guess. During the school year I saw an article on it in passing, but never got around to reading it. I was too busy studying other crap for school.

  193. Xbrad,

    Was just going to recommend Laura touch base with Andy.

    He is one smart bastard and is somewhat knowledgable on how to ‘monetize’ social media.

    Or, as in Ace’s case, how NOT to make money.

  194. Thanks, phat! That’s easy enough to get started on this Summer.

  195. It’s a sweet trip. 1 leg to Portland, 23 hr layover, 1 leg back to Chicago.

    Portland is starting to be my favorite stateside layover.

    It’s the vegan stripclub, isn’t it?

  196. Portland has an e.coli outbreak right now.

  197. Afternoon, hawt chicks and men of dubious backgrounds. . .

  198. Aren’t summer hailstorms just the best?!

  200. Wow MCPO! Whose car is that??

  201. CO Alex,

    It’s the food carts that make it awesome.

    http://www.travelportland.com/article/food-cart-pods/

    There is an entire city block downtown that is ringed by food trucks/trailers. Maybe 30-40 of them. It’s amazing.

    Also has one of my favorite bars stumbling distance from the hotel:

    Kelly’s Olympian: http://kellysolympian.com/

    A bit of a granola-esque crowd and the girls in Portland aren’t all that good looking (compared to Seattle and Vancouver). That actually makes it better for us old married guys who are easily tempted by Vegan Strippers.

  202. Sean saw the Vegan Strippers open for the Halal Foodies at Lilith Fair ’93.

  203. That car didn’t get hailed on, it got shot down

  204. YIkes, Chief – is that your car?

    Can definitely sympathize – had one come through FTW many years ago; took out 4 of the 6 windows in our car. Had big dents from the baseball-sized rocks that fell from the sky, as well.

    Body repair shops were doing steady business for months after that storm.

  205. One of the best names for a beer is on tap at Kelly’s:

    ‘Oakshire Ill-Tempered Gnome’.

    http://oakbrew.com/our-beers/ill-tempered-gnome

  206. That storm hit just to the east of us. *whew* Lancaster got the worst of it. Highway 222 looked like it had 3-4″ of snow on it!

  207. Mcpo, how do you people pronounce “Lancaster”?

  208. obamajerb

  209. debriefs

  210. ~waves at lauraw and scoot~ I think this is DIY Christmas in the retail world.

  211. later sweetie

    hi sweeties

  212. Phat,

    My family lives in Portland, so I know the block that you’re talking about. Never been to that bar, however.

    The girls in Seattle may be cuter, but their more libtard, in my experience.

  213. they’re/HS

  214. oops. Thanks, oso.

  215. Lan-kester

  216. Beasn, I’m going to be rayciss here and not on your wall on FB. Mexicans should not be allowed to go to zoos. They throw things in the enclosures. Ice cubes, rocks, popcorn, coins. It is ridiculous. One of our Orangs ended up at the EP zoo after his Mom rejected him. The Mexican primate keeper was abusing him.

  217. Mcpo, thanks. So, you say it like a Buckeye would.

  218. My Uncle Glen lived on Buena Vista Rd. In Newark, OH. Those people talk funny.

  219. Just mailed off a couple of graduation gifts to kids of college and High School friends of mine. Damn, I’m getting old.

    A guy I went to the Academy with and flew C-5’s with has a boy going to the Academy this year.

    My card was simple and elegant: ‘Here’s $25. Spend it on loose women and cheap booze. Have fun this summer because your next four years are going to suck. PS: don’t tell your mom.’

    I may not get a Christmas card from them this year.

  220. Was talking to a friend last night.

    He’s a guitar guy. I asked him why Roy Clark is never in any ‘Top 10’ lists.

    Probably the best guitar player I’ve ever seen, I would put him up there with SRV.

    Dave, Wiser what say you?

  221. Sean saw the Vegan Strippers open for the Halal Foodies at Lilith Fair ’93.

    That has got to be one of my earliest blackouts. No memory.

  222. Phat, country/bluegrass musicians don’t ever get any credit.

  223. Shots fired!

  224. Beasn, I’m going to be rayciss here and not on your wall on FB. Mexicans should not be allowed to go to zoos. They throw things in the enclosures. Ice cubes, rocks, popcorn, coins. It is ridiculous. One of our Orangs ended up at the EP zoo after his Mom rejected him. The Mexican primate keeper was abusing him.

    And nobody attempts to stop it or let them know at the gates what they better not do?

    What happened to the primate keeper?

  225. He lost his job. Took awhile to fire him, too. We have signs in English and Spanish. SIGNS!!! The bike patrol seems to just ride their bikes and chat up moms. I root for fecal flinging. Dan glares at people or just tells them to stop.

  226. Afternoon.

  227. Mexican kid was throwing rocks at the bear at the Roswell Zoo. (Spring Park) Dan started throwing rocks at the kid. My hubby is a psycho.

  228. Hi, Jew. Our weather sucks. How is it where you are?

  229. Beasn, I’m gonna be creepy here and not on your wall on FB. Your daughter is teh hawt.

  230. Lovely, but a little humid.

  231. Oso, I bet if Mexico has zoos, they don’t put up with trashy assholes.

  232. Sean, because I think you are a gentleman and a scholar, I don’t take that in a creepy way. So, thank you. She’s a good kid.

  233. Today I built two (2) of these:

    http://tinyurl.com/npsme2g

    and one (1) of these:

    http://tinyurl.com/ouc2r2y

  234. How did we get your weather? We’ve had wind, rain, hail, and thunder. Snow in the mountains.

  235. Beasn, I think that the Orca in Free Willy was originally from a Mexican Aquapark. Taiwanese zoos were kind of creepy, too. Facilities, not behavior of guests.

  236. So Mr. TiFW and I decided that both of us are going to Hell.

    Last night was Rebecca’s school’s end-of-year/graduation presentation. Each class did a performance (bear in mind, they all have DS).

    One of the older classes has a rather tall, large young man with very few verbal skills, but that wasn’t stopping him from giving it his all.

    I swear to God, it was like watching that old “Tonto, Frankenstein, and Tarzan” skit on SNL – with the kid playing the part of Phil Hartmann.

    I had to bite the inside of my mouth to keep from laughing out loud – I knew better than to look at Mr. TiFW; he was barely holding it in himself.

    I was sure if either one of us started laughing, we would have received a rather terse phone call from the school this morning: “We’re sorry, but Rebecca will not be allowed to come back next year….”

  237. Beasnette’s best friends were at our house at 7am sharp in order to drive down with us (save money on gas) to see her graduate.

    It was an amazing feat considering those two are rarely on time anywhere.

    Their gift to her was a homemade edible arrangement.

  238. >>‘Oakshire Ill-Tempered Gnome’.

    MJ should sue them for trademark violation.

  239. TiFW,

    Please tell me you have video.

  240. I may be a scholar, but I ain’t no gentleman.

    But seriously, though, congrats on the girl’s graduation. Cool deal.

  241. Tifw, hahaha. After my Dad’s stroke, we would do the the Putting on the Ritz scene from Young Frankenstein. Then his speech therapy ruined it.

  242. I can’t find video of Jesse Camp interviewing Ozzy Osbourne.

  243. I may be a scholar, but I ain’t no gentleman.

    I haven’t seen you post Bert and Ernie porn, so you’re good.

  244. Oh, and oso….I think most of my FB friends are rayciss.

  245. Real rayciss like D-rats, or Hostage type rayciss that H8 TFG for being a fucking commie?

  246. Well gee, I’m going to be rayciss again. I really wish Asians would stop marrying other Asians. I get confused when I’m helping an obviously Chinese American and she has a Vietnamese last name. Hey Xuan, nobody is buying the Nguyen. And what is up with Filipinos marrying Koreans?

  247. phat – I wish! We were sitting pretty far back, and Mr. TiFW’s phone was out of juice. I’m sure somebody has it, though.

    Rebecca is NOT a performer – she knows how to sing, and we’re pretty sure she knows the songs they teach them in class. However, ever since she was little, all she will do when up on stage is stand there watching her friends, the teacher, and the crowd.

    Every.Stinking.Time.

    We’re thinking (hoping) that the reason she does that is because when they practice there is no audience, and it’s such a novelty to hear the roar of the crowd that it throws her off her game.

    It’s bad enough that everyone else’s kids sat with their families; Rebecca likes to sit away from the parental units these days, so she sat about 6 rows behind us all night long.

  248. Does she sing at home?

  249. Real rayciss like D-rats, or Hostage type rayciss that H8 TFG for being a fucking commie?

    The latter. I refuse to friend anyone who is a D-rat. Don’t want the fights. I’ll poke ’em on someone else’s wall.

  250. My D-rats are all family or RL friends.

  251. beasn, congrats to you and dad and your kid. Saw the update on FB, she’s a beautiful young lady. Just like her mom

  252. I haven’t seen you post Bert and Ernie porn, so you’re good.

    Aw, thanks beasn.

    *files away horrible link for use some other day*

  253. Oso, I have only friended one family member (besides my kids). If I friended the rest, there would some serious blow-ups.

  254. I let them friend me, and I try to ignore most of their posts. Bitch ex-SiL friended me last week. She needed family addresses for my niece’s graduation. I had sent my brother the link the week before. Obvious trolling for gifts.

  255. Aw thanks, dave. That’s very sweet of you to say so. Though we’re kinda like ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray’. She is Dorian and I’m the graying tubba goo.

    I probably wouldn’t feel so bad about it if ONE of the kids were married and gave me a grandbaby. Then the layer of bacon would come in handy.

  256. I let them friend me, and I try to ignore most of their posts.

    You’re nicer than me. I wouldn’t be able to keep my fat fingers from responding.

  257. There are boyfriends now.. Mrs. Dave is insane with the grandkid want. I’m trying to settle her the eff down already.

    Not. Easy.

  258. The picture of Beasnette in the back seat really looks like you.

  259. Everyone in my immediate family is just as much of a rayciss, knuckle-dragging Rethuglikkkan troglodyte as I am. Our only political fights are about who hates minorities, women, poor people and gays the most.

  260. A nice little shower is rolling through. It’s pleasant soft rain, a little cool spring breeze.

  261. also I don’t buy that Dorian Gray bs for one minute.

    I’m the one around here who abuses self-deprecation, not you.

  262. Mrs. Dave is insane with the grandkid want. I’m trying to settle her the eff down already.
    Not. Easy.

    You sound like Mr. Beasn. He says, ‘Back off. You keep pushing for it, there’s less chance they’re going to deliver.’

    I get it. But normal wimmens lurve them some babies. We can’t help it.

  263. Stop abusing yourself, dave. You’ll get hair on your palms.

  264. I’m the one around here who abuses self-deprecation, not you.

    *grabs jello gut and shakes it*

    Perfect for a napping grandbaby.

  265. LOL, sean.

  266. Question for Twiterers: When you reply to someone’s tweet, does just that person see it or does it go to all of your followers?

    TYIA

  267. Got the Axeman dropped off to his end of school year dance. He picked out black slacks, a magenta button-down, and a black-and-magenta striped tie. So handsome. My baby boy.

    *sighs*

  268. It goes out to the whole wide universe, Lipstick; unless you send it as private.

  269. Shotgun replies…

    >> You’ll get hair on your palms.

    More?

    >> Perfect for a napping grandbaby.

    Chill, woman. My kids are just dating. You are going to be around for a while show some patience and let em build their lives already.

    >> *sighs*

    Ahh.. mom. *hugs*

  270. shit..

    >> does just that person see it or does it go to all of your followers?

    Everyone who follows you and them.

    If you want to just say to that person “hey, I like this”, that’s what a favorite does. It’s a one way “like” to them alone

  271. Thanks Cyn. How could I forget how Weiner got caught?

    There was nothing bad sent, just made a joke on the wrong tweet, then apologized, made the same joke on the right tweet.

  272. I don’t remember going to any dances when I was in 7th grade. The only dance I really recall is prom (twice). I’m glad he’s gone though… now if I could get Googleman to go and just try it for even an hour…

  273. Chill, woman.

    I know, I know. I’ve been good lately.

    Beasnette had a boyfriend once. Still friends with him and calls him a drama queen (he really isn’t but he is clingy – it bugs and I dont’ blame her)

  274. I found out yesterday that a friend of mine who I’ve not seen in a over a year has maybe a week to live, spinal cancer. Visited him today, talked to him for a half an hour about anything I could think of, because he’s no longer responsive. Prayed for him there, came home and had whiskey and prayed more. He has a wife and three kids, the youngest is still nursing, or not far from it.

    I’ve made my peace with it, but I just feel awful for his family. If you pray, please take a moment. Whether you do or you don’t, please hug your family and tell them you love them.

  275. MOM!!!! LIPSTICK IS TWEETING WEINER PICS!!!

  276. Cyn, if you got a picture of that handsome young man, you need to show us nosey people on FB.

  277. That’s hard news, Leon; sorry to hear of this. :(

  278. Beasn?

    http://imgur.com/gallery/nxa9A39

  279. I did get a pic or two, Beassnns, but no facebookie… gimme a sec and I’ll get a pic here.

  280. He’s a really good guy, too. I met his father today, and his youngest son. I prayed I’d get a chance to tell him about his father. I know he’ll learn about him from his mom, but I want him to know the man I knew as well. Funny guy, easy laugh, loved life and his wife.

  281. Leon, that’s horrible.

    Will do.

  282. Tushar, if that were me, the camel would regret that.

  283. Heh. I was just about to DM CAC on Twitter for advice about watching tonight’s meteor shower.

  284. Prayers sent, leon.

  285. Leon, maybe you could write a letter to the son about his dad (and give it to wife/mom for her to keep until he was older).

  286. Teh Axeman

    {the link will self-destructo-ed! soon}

  287. Prayers, Leon. I met an 8 year old leukemia survivor today. Her hair is almost in, and she was buying balloons for our Children’s Miracle Network. She wanted to help “Sick kids”

  288. Handsome kid, Cyn.

  289. Thanks, Dave, too.

    Wow, what a heart-wrenching situation, Leon. All that heals the hurt is time and prayer.

  290. Holy crap, he’s really sprouted like a weed since I last saw him!

  291. Sorry, Leon. That’s rough.

    *hugs Penelope, gets hit with frying pan*

  292. Oh yes, a good lookin’ young man! Very snazzy too.

  293. I am now the shorted two-legged creature in the house. Googleman just surpassed his father; he turned 16 last week.

    *writes “extra refrigerator, with food” on my Christmas wish list*

  294. Axeman-looking spiffy! Cute kid.

  295. “shortEST”

  296. >> I know, I know. I’ve been good lately.

    I’m teasing you. Mrs. Dave is overexcited and stuff. It was a little much for my youngest kidl, so I made the BOLD (=reckless) move of intervening a little, which breaks Dave in Texas’ number one rule of survival with daughters and moms.. “You Stick Your Face in This Shit At Your Peril Dad”

  297. Thanks, gang! He is a fine looking young man if I say so myself.

  298. Sorry to hear about your friend Leon.

  299. Leon, what Cyn said. Letter or video remembrance.

  300. Look at that kid’s AWESOME hair. Wow.

    Leon, I’m so sorry. You went to see him and loved him today. You are a good friend.

  301. Thanks, everyone. I’ll write as much as I can remember and try to see to it that his children get it (he has three).

    First time losing a friend my own age and it’s a complete surprise.

    You may now return to your regularly-scheduled Friday activities. Call a friend you haven’t talked to in awhile. Like Car in.

  302. Cyn, your kid is wearing his pants at his waist instead of around his knees. Why is he so old fashioned?

  303. *calls Car in*

  304. No boxers peeking out the back… crazy, I know.

  305. Hi Hostages.

    The tequila is flowing.

    :)

  306. In-laws still there, Bcoch?

  307. Oh hell yes Leon. Departure date right now is June 2. Which means it’s really like the 4th.

  308. Hey BC. Can I tell you something harder than dealing with in-laws?

    I can, can’t I? Father of 2 daughters.

    Yes, I can.

  309. *shoots Dave the bird*

  310. *wonders if maintaining a functional website is harder than dealing with in laws or daughters*

  311. Did anybody suggest that anybody else switch to decaf today?

  312. I don’t maintain the site.

    But it would be easier

  313. I know you don’t dave. Just a general thought.

    3 comments so far and no error message! Woooo! Moral victory!

  314. I think it’s just general site bullshit and not banning bullshit

  315. Why can’t it be banning BS? What if all the non-banned but non-commenting Morons are gingers? What if Mu.Nu is going rogue? Hatch doors, Dave?

  316. >> I don’t maintain the site.

    Obvs. It wouldn’t be a POS held together with bubble gum and twine.

  317. I’m thinking less twine and more “Hope”.

  318. Australian bubble gum and twine.

  319. For those counting…..7th comment was the charm

  320. Hey, dave (or oso), when you were in Taiwan, did you notice that people had trouble with the concept of personal space? I swear, some of the Chinese customers here will walk across an empty hallway just so they can walk riiiiiight past someone.

  321. Sean, there is no concept of personal space. It doesn’t exist.

  322. I just figured out what Rosetta should to do to his neighbor.

    Did you know that $40 will buy about 2000 live ladybugs?

  323. My tree phobia was before I lived in Taiwan (Have you people ever been to VA?) My crowd phobia was totally a result of riding busses in a city of 14 million that liked to touch my hair.

  324. Taiwan was such a crowded place, 22 million people on a rock that’s 120 miles long and 90 miles wide, 2/3 of which is uninhabitable that I think they just don’t have the concept of “personal space”.

    They bury their dead in rocks inside of the mountains. No other place to put em.

    I hated getting into elevators with them. They were sucking up all my oxygen.

  325. Well, the tequila is gone. That’s a shame. Or maybe a good thing.

  326. Around here, if you feel someones breath on your neck while standing in line, they will most likely be Puerto Rican.

  327. I suppose personal space is a luxury that those of us who live in countries with a bit less population density just get used to.

    *checks privilege*

  328. second most densely populated nation, after Bangladesh

  329. It was the busses and elevators. I still have panic attacks from the memories. I’m freaking right now.

  330. I think there was a study that showed Americans like at least 3 feet of personal space.

  331. I got used to feeling like people were always pressed right up against me in any queue when I lived in Hartford, but am no longer acclimated to that bullshit.

    I think it really is a city-people thing. People living in the suburbs don’t do that, regardless of origin.

  332. USA is 84 people per sq mile, Puerto Rico is 1100 plus.

  333. http://www.infoplease.com/ipa/A0934666.html

  334. Scott, at least PRs believe in lines! (Sorry Aggie) Mexicans don’t think lines apply to them. The queue is a British construct.

  335. Isn’t El Salvador up there in population density?

    I just ate a Cadbury Creme Egg, mmm

  336. Lippy, I don’t go to DL in the on season, because I can’t breathe. I used to eat Cadbury Creme Eggs.

  337. DL?

  338. Haha, Mongolia, Falkland Islands and Greenland come in last.

  339. There is a reason Taiwan was known as Formosa. (Portuguese) It really is one of the most beautiful places on earth. Most of the population lives around Taipei. Even back in the day, I couldn’t breathe.

  340. My mom sent it to me. Hey, it’s obligatory.

    And DL? as well

  341. I saw DL open for Pigeon Pulp in 2004.

  342. Disneyland. The walkways were designed for 1955 Americans. I had a major melt down at DL. Crowds were bigger than usual. They were overwhelmed. I thought I was going to die.

  343. I prefer WDW. (Walt Disney World)

  344. They just had a thing (I’ll have to dig up a link) about how they’re raising ticket prices and discontinuing annual passes at Disneyland because of overcrowding.

    Thanks, Obama!

  345. My sister has a friend who is obsessed with Disney. Goes to WDW 4 or 5 times a year.

  346. Sean, my heart would rather go to DL. Even in the off season it is too busy. All the Cali add ons make it ridiculous. It is cheaper for me to fly into Tampa, than it is to drive to Cali.

  347. Lippy, what a loser! I’ve only gone to WDW twice in one year.

  348. hahaha, no, she is a genius. Could write her ticket to work at Livermore, JPL or anyplace like that. Some kind of metals engineer/researcher. Doctorate.

  349. RL Native friend is notorious for sneaking into movies without paying. We call it the “Merle” in his honor. He just posted on FB that he is pulling a Merle at the new Xmen.

  350. Mexicans don’t think lines apply to them.

    Same with arabs. Mob rule.

  351. I totes want to go to WDW with Lippy and her friend.

  352. How does Merle do it?

  353. He buys a ticket early in the day at reduced prices and theater hops/

  354. I’ve only been there once at age 11. It was a big deal. Check your privilege, crazybear!

  355. We need a DL-Texas.

  356. Does Merle ever go to Disneyland?

  357. I have family members that buy tickets to sporting events and just let ushers move them throughout the event. Makes me sick. Dan has totes adopted this part of La Cultura. We call it the “Uncle Pres” or the “Mexican Upgrade”. Dan went to a basketball game with my Uncle, who he hates. They were supposed to meet my CiL, Phil. His family is from Northern NM and even poorer than my family. Phil managed to “Upgrade” Courtside chair backs. Dan and Uncle Pres just got chair backs./

  358. I lost a wallet at WDW.

    They found it for me.

  359. Merle was offered a job at DL, but he wouldn’t club his hair. He H8s white people and Mexicans.

  360. He’s tall and thin and people think he’s Sioux not Navajo.

  361. Dave, you and your wallets…one on top of the car, too!

  362. I love WDW. Goofy called and wished me Happy Birthday!

  363. Dave, get one of those big long chains that the bikers wear ;)

  364. Nobody ever mistakes me for Sioux. I have more of the Elizabeth Warren Cherokee look going for me.

  365. It was so funny Lips, I lost it on the Aerosmith ride.. there was $400 in it.. I went back through the “exit into the gift shop” and I saw a kid running the rides and told him I lost my wallet and he asked me “what’s your middle name?” He read it off the DL.. I told him Blakely and he smiled and handed it to me.

  366. When I lived in TX, I went to school with quite a few of the EW/Cher Indians. In NM, it is totes different. Totes.

  367. RL native friend is pissed that only the gays seem to live off Rez. He lives off Rez. Everyone thinks he’s gay. He has 2 kids, but I still make gay jokes at his expense.

  368. He smokes dope, but I still make alcohol jokes about him. Listerine or rubbing alcohol.

  369. Dave, one of my coworkers has your middle name as his last name. Same spelling. And your first name as his first name.

  373. Listerine or rubbing alcohol.

    Vanilla extract will also get you crunked up in a pinch. We drunks are resourceful people.

  374. yep. trying to explain the vanilla extract to people is hardcore.

  375. Some of my native friends have more of an allergic reaction to alcohol than a stereotypical.

  376. Merle got a ticket for riding his bike on the sidewalk. Cops were upset that he was sober and just riding his bike.

    YAY ME

  393. There was a hit and run accident in Detroit. Another kid got hit by a guy in a rented Charger. Given recent events, I can’t say I blame him for fleeing the scene, but he really should have called the cops afterward.

  394. up before seven on a day I don’t have to work.

    You can sleep past 7 in the morning?

  395. No, I can’t. I’m always at work by seven, including sat mornings.

    On sundays I sleep till 7

  396. There’s a lady who works with Mrs Dave who has chickens and she gives us 2 dozen eggs a week.

    I have 3 ripe tomatoes from the plants in my back yard.

    All I need is a pig to kill and breakfast is gonna be AWESOME

  397. I’m happy to sleep past 5.

  398. I’m sorry leon. A few years back I lost a high school and college friend from Cancer. SUCH a nice guy. Pat meet him in college and we all worked together.

    He had just recently married, and had a little baby. I wish I’d known he was sick and could have visited, but I didn’t find out until after he was gone.

  399. I routinely wake up at 5AM during the week. On days off I’ll make it to 7 or so. When Paula works overnight till 4AM she’s home at 4:30 and so am I regardless of my intentions to keep sleeping.

  400. I wake up at the same time regardless of the day, or when I went to bed.

    $20

  401. The cats get me up at 6.

  402. The puppy helps them if he hears anything at all.

  403. StarDog dropped a deuce in the front hallway despite being outside twice this morning. She usually eats a meal, rests and digests for a half hour then gives a subtle signal about going outside. Nothing subtle about her need to poop today.

    Mine never did. I went from waking up at 4 to waking up at 7.

  411. *CA RIN ANSWER THE GODDAMN PHONE*

    Now I’ll never answer teh phone. I switched my ringtone to “Paranoid Android” and I love that song.

    Ring me up again, Dave.

  412. I’m not going to feed your sick obsession now.

    Ok maybe

  413. Paranoid Android is a good tune.

  414. For today:

    1. get dressed
    2. Play in garden for an hour or so
    3. shower and get dressed again
    4. Obamajob all day (but not a “real” double)

  415. I normally work out on Saturday, but I’m taking today off, since I’m hoping to squeeze “The Murph” workout in on Monday in memory of Michael Murphy.

  416. I have two days off from my Obamajob. This weekend I cut the lawn, smoke chicken and pack stuff.

  417. Somewhere between 3 and 6 I’m going to Confession. It’ll depend on how long the lawn takes.

  418. If I’m too wiped out, the build might happen tomorrow.

  419. I have a fukksized carousel horse to pack.

    I suppose how long the confession itself takes depends on how many times you hurt yourself while fixing the sink.

  421. My friend passed away last night, just got the call. Glad I was able to see him and say goodbye.

  422. >> I’m hoping to squeeze “The Murph”

    hooker

  423. I bet “The Murph” is expensive.

  424. In Hinduism, there is no concept of a confession. We generally do not recognize the priest as a middleman between God and us. If you know you have messed up, you can talk directly to God. You don’t even have to speak. In your mind, repent and ask for forgiveness. God will know. He has technology that makes wifi and bluetooth look like child’s play.

  425. Oh Leonitas.. God bless you and may your friend rest. I’m very sorry, but so glad you got to say goodbye. That doesn’t seem like a big deal right now, but it is a big deal.

  426. RIP, Leon’s friend.

  427. I suppose how long the confession itself takes depends on how many times you hurt yourself while fixing the sink.

    Swearing is venial. “Ow, Jesus” is also technically a prayer, so I’m in the clear on those.

  428. Tushar, we call it Confession, but the real confession happens when you examine your conscience and resolve to seek absolution. The better term for the sacrament is Reconciliation, because the priest has the authority to absolve sins and reconcile you to God based on an unbroken conveyance of that authority (apostolic succession) going back to Jesus and the twelve apostles.

    And we can eat beef and bacon and also drink wine.

  429. Off to a Memorial day ceremony at Jefferson Barracks.

    It’s a joint service academy alumni endeavor.

    Tears will be shed, then hopefully we’ll all go get good and drunk.

    I’m Irish. It happens.

  430. Need a way to link the pdf of the ceremony program. The ceremony itself says a lot about the history of the Academies and how many have fallen in service.

  431. Do you have author rights here, phat? You could upload it to the media folder and then link it in a comment or post.

  432. Phat, do it up right. I know you will.

  433. >>Tushar, we call it Confession, but the real confession happens when you examine your conscience and resolve to seek absolution.

    We ain’t all that different then. We do have priests, but their job is to guide us spiritually. Not to be gatekeepers of God. The only one who can absolve us of sins is the Big Guy Himself.

    >>And we can eat beef and bacon and also drink wine.
    Hinduism does not proscribe bacon and wine. Our only beef is with beef. But there is a general discouragement of carnism.

    I talked to the founder/trustee of the oldest Hindu temple in Washington DC area many years back. He said that the aversion to eating animals was a Buddhist influence, and the old religion had no such strictures. One of my kids loves meat. He and I have started eating beef in modest quantity.

  434. The squids are laying a wreath for the men that died on the ‘Hellships’ in WWII.

    That’s gonna be rough.

  435. MJ needs this

  436. Scary brown guy, the Jewish admonition to avoid eating shellfish was because of their scavenging of human bodies lost in the waters.. you were eating people. Which doesn’t happen an awful lot now.

    Things change.

  437. After a few weeks of a scratchy throat and itchy eyes I finally broke down and bought some otc Claritin. That shit works great. It’s supposed to be one pill/24 hours but I can feel it wearing off after 12-14 hours. I’ll take my another one now and begin AM dosing while the pollen is bad.

  438. It’s a real bad year Jimbro.

  439. I’ve had 2 asthma attacks this Spring.

    Over the previous 20 years I’ve had 4 or 5 attacks.

  440. I’ve never been bothered by it this much. It was misleading because it all coincided with getting over a cold I had then smoking more cigars with better weather and getting a new dog who is shedding their winter coat. I blamed it all on them and then had a LED light bulb moment when I was shopping yesterday and saw the Claritin. I’ve never needed it before.

  441. Damn,

    Copied the program to the media library, but not sure how to embed into a comment.

    I’ve got to get going.

    Dave or Scott can you square this away for me? Got to go find a tie.

  442. Looks like Tushar is on it.

  443. Scott, no I am not. I don’t really know how wordpuss works.

    But this is the link:

  445. The only one who can absolve us of sins is the Big Guy Himself.

    True for us as well. If you want to read a little on the theological reasoning for the how and the why I can post some links. As a practical matter, having to confess your sins out loud to a person has an impact that I can’t readily convey. To say it and be heard is to really own it, it strengthens resolve like nothing else I’ve attempted “alone”.

    Time to mow.

  446. Sorry about your friend. He is at peace now. :(

    the is the ONE good thought to comfort yourself with now.

  447. I need a big truckload of dirt.

  448. I mean, NOW. before I do any more gardening.

    sigh.

    I don’t now how I’m going to work around this.

  449. A lot of towns around here give away free leaf compost.

    We have shoveled tons of that over the years.

  450. or you could just whine about it.

  451. My folks finally moved home.

    Next weekend’s plan:

    Make Dad buy a new wax ring for the the new toilet
    Install new wax ring and new toilet.

  452. Goodmorning,coolkids.

    I’llthrowupanewpoat,brb.

  453. I see Dave started on a poat so I let him finish and poat it.

  454. Jewstin, check out Sani Seal.

    The reviews are incredibly good.

  455. Is Sani Seal cheap? Dad won’t buy it if it’s more than an $8 wax ring.

  456. I poated… Dave can push me down when he sees fit… if he dares.

  457. It’s $4 dollars over budget, but it can be used more than once.
