MMM 329: hot and dry, or not

Blazing hot all weekend, so I didn’t get as much done outdoors as I’d have liked.  Got some trees trimmed along the western fence line just as it was starting to rain, but I didn’t get around to hauling them to the burn pile (which is already too large) on Sunday.  Did get a few more things moved out of the sun room, which we’re hoping to have at least presentable by Saturday when we celebrate Possum’s 3rd bday with the family.  Plenty to get ready by then.  At least the lawn is barely growing.

What was the pitch for this photo shoot, d’ya think?

Yoga or just a lunge stretch?  The imprint makes me think there are more pictures out there that I probably shouldn’t see.

And that’s the post.  Go out and grab the week by the short and curlies.

  1. There are a few butts here that simply don’t look real.

    Just saying.

  2. I’m wavering about crossfit today.

    I don’t know.

    I need a rest day, but tomorrow is a busy day and may be a forced rest day regardless.

  3. Plus, I want to go see my friends.

  4. I’ve seen Eva in enough pics to think that there isn’t any photoshop happening, and her torso is thick enough that I’m willing to believe it’s just a matter of dedication or at least strong training emphasis on her part. A lot of guys do this with various bits of anatomy and manage to achieve some degree of localized hypertrophy.

  5. WTF would an American bow to the queen? And an American President? NO.

    Seriously, this is ridiculous.

    And the whole rest of the royal family are inbred twits. Yes, they served in the military, it’s the least they could effing do to live such a pampered lifestyle.

  6. The only queen I bow to is in Heaven talking to her son, hopefully asking him to forgive me.

  7. I need a haircut. I’m very tempted to buy a pair of clippers and just take it all off. Since I don’t actually have to be anywhere or see anyone, if it looks like crap I’ll have two weeks to let it regrow.

  8. Meh, I could understand if Melania were to curtsy to the Queen, when appearing at the Palace for tea. But Trump is a head of state, on equal footing with the Queen.

  9. Hypothesis: Much of history over the past two-thousand years can be seen as a conflict between Christianity and an attempted resurgence of paganism. For example, the way that the left is often a sex cult.

  10. Ginormous butts don’t do it for me. Just looks wrong.

  11. I’d take that further: paganism makes continuous inroads with various heresies to split the Church and lead to the normalization of its favored sins. End result: souls lost, and political power because their enemies are at odds with each other.

  12. They don’t actually do much for me anymore, Cavil, but the binders aren’t empty yet.

  13. Powers and Principalities, folks, Powers and Principalities. Call it the Adversary, call it human nature, it’s very, very real no matter how you explain it.

  14. Head is now shorn. I look like recruit. But damn, I forgot how good it feels to have air flow over my scalp.

  15. Interesting article regarding the SJW snitch culture. It’s a bit hard for me to summon sympathy–but I don’t believe that was the point of the article.

    I’m left wondering if the author would have seen the horror of his previous world had he not been the victim of it. Xe wouldn’t, of course.

  16. Today Charles Blow has written a column calling the president a treasonous traitor. It’s in the headline, in case you think I’m being hyperbolic.

    Why doesn’t anyone ask him if the president should be put to death? Isn’t that the punishment. Impeachment, trial, death sentence? Let’s start this civil war sooner rather than later. I’m tired and I just want to get it over with already.

  17. Baby steps MJ.

    Speaking of which, is MJr taller than you yet?

  18. I’m learning how to do dictionary attacks on WiFi.

  19. Wanna see something cool? Look up the Chinook extraction conducted on Mt. Hood in Oregon over the weekend. The pilot(s) were definitely BAD ASS. Daily Mail has it.

    I’m learning how to do dictionary attacks on WiFi.

    I don’t know whether or not that sounds interesting. I mean, it could be interesting.

    I’m about to start doing burpees, and Russian lessons on Duolingo.

  21. It’s a way of getting yourself onto WiFi networks without anyone telling you the WiFi password, then you do other things. I’m prepping to take the Certified Ethical Hacker test.

  22. I know what a dictionary attack is, I’m just not sure if learning about how to do them is interesting, or painfully boring.

  23. the interesting part would be making the dictionary attacks more efficient, rather than brute forcing everything.

  24. you can test on mine, leon. Good luck!

    Exactly.

  26. The way to make a more efficient dictionary attack is to research your target. At which point, honestly, social engineering is likely more effective.

  27. A good article on Elon Musk’s ego.

  28. Right, you can supply the dictionary generator with an arbitrary pattern. The neat thing was learning how to do it offline from a captured datastream, and how to trigger a datastream worth capturing.

  29. I just threw my dictionary across the room. Has to count for something.

  30. Only the really big hardbound dictionaries are useful, they’ll do serious damage to the hardware. Don’t bother with the small softcovers, though they’re still useful for anti-spider duty.

  31. I just remembered that RADIOHEAD is next Sunday. WOOT.

  32. * Throws dictionary at WAP, which flies into pieces *
    Hmm, fail to see how that kind of breaking in will accomplish anything!

  33. D’oh! It was a French -> English dictionary! No wonder…

  34. I’m dying.

    youtube.com/watch?v=QQna34cbPpg

  35. French computers are easy, they just give up.

  36. I’m listening to more of these Bob and Ray shows and they’re hilarious, never heard of them before.

  37. Just saw this…

    DUMP THE LOSER! What does he do the other 4 days?

    Haven’t a frickin’ clue. If I probe the girl too much she gets bitchy.
    In general, she’s like in a delayed adolescent rebel stage. Anything I say sets her off. Mr. B had to step in a few days ago to tell her that once again, she was in the wrong. She shut her trap but she was flushed in her pissyness and if looks could kill – a normal person….I still wouldn’t be in a heap because I can out stubborn her novice arse.

  38. Shit, at 21, I was chomping at the bit to get the rest of my life going. Ticked myself off when I changed majors which added an extra year before I could do so.

  39. Beasn, that means that he does jack shit. Probably plays video games all day. And she’s probably annoyed with it as well, but doesn’t want to admit it to you.

  40. Please, Hillary, run in 2020 and when Trump beats you again only worse, I’m looking forward to hearing your idiotic excuses the 2nd time around.

  41. As I said, I’ve got one single still. He met a cute girl over the weekend though. A friend is getting married, and it’s the bride’s sister. Wedding is Thursday (yes, thursday) so that’s when he’s going to make his move.

  42. I just want to watch them wheel her around with a appliance dolly trying to pretend she’s perfectly healthy.

  43. Heysus. is still hanging in there. One month. He got her a gift (she said he did it kind of ironically, because he knows she’s not that kind of girl). Watched him walk her to the car, not only holding her hand, but then went and opened the door for her.

  44. I think his grandma is coaching him, because she apparently already loves Erin.

  45. Unfortunately Car in, we live 11 hours away.

    A coworker of my husband since Day 1 had 4 kids. Three boys, one girl. Our first kids happened around the same time, while we lived in MI. We came back to MO a year or so apart. We should have kept in closer touch family-wise. Maybe we could have been related by now.
    We saw number 2 son, who also was Mr. B’s intern, in church last evening, with a girlfriend. That young man, like his siblings, is on a successful path, too.

  46. Does she call Erin “mija”? That’s the true sign right there.

  47. coalex, the boyfriend makes more like 20+ dollars an hour. He was able to ditch the Subway job and is in finance. He plays his cards right, he should have an okay career.

  48. Beasn, I figured that any second job would be a part-time gig, so probably not high-paying. Just a little extra income on the side. If he works in finance he should be doing just fine.

  49. Clinton won’t be the nominee because the far left radicals are currently purging the Democrat party of any Clinton loyalists.

  50. Speaking of which, is MJr taller than you yet?
    ————————
    He’s a wee lad.

    Fifth percentile for height and weight. Fifty seven for head size.

  51. Matt was very small too. I don’t even know if he was on the chart.

  52. 50 more burpees to do before worky worky.

  53. I say we bring back madame guillotine. Entertain the people a little.

  54. What’s he like today?

  55. Haha, looks like Amazon crashed on Prime Day.

  56. Matt is shorter than me, MJ.

  57. I am a simple caveman lawyer. I don’t understand your corporate piggybanks and rules for paid time off.

    People, wtf is the difference between accrued ‘holiday time’ and accrued ‘pto?’ I have like ten hours of one and 35 hours of the other. As a many-years self employed person, I really don’t know what the Hell these jackasses are talking about. I always thought time was time.

  58. Not much difference. Usually it means that the company is trying to accomodate various religious beliefs by giving them “holiday” time and saying, “here you go, use it however you want.” It may also be a way to track who has been working holidays versus who is just accruing regular PTO. There may even be restrictions on giving away/selling holiday time versus giving away/selling back PTO.

  59. Shit

    Did you teach him the Lollipop Guild secret handshake?

  61. “Holiday” hours typically have to be used in the year you get them, and usually on actual holidays. “PTO” can accrue over multiple years. When I quit the job before Ford I cashed out 194 hours of accrued PTO.

  62. The good news everybody is that Russia wants US to have guns! So much so that they sent a agent over to be “pro gun” and infiltrate the political organization known as NRA.

    Cause everybody knows gun rights are big on Russia’s list of stuff they want to promote worldwide, and in case there ever was a conflict with the US, they want to ensure that we are all well armed in advance.

    Those SNEAKY Bastards!

  63. Our PTO can only be used if we need to take care of a family member. It is stuck in limbo. Holiday/Vacay is straight hours based on our average work week. We tried to use as much of our PTO before the benefit change.

  64. Troy nailed it.

    The illogical pretzel the left is twisting themselves into is hilarious.

  65. Pretty sad, but based on the BS of politicizing the govt agains Tea Partiers and normal Americans, I do trust Putin more than the CIA, FBI, DOJ, NSA, etc. Robyn Gritz.

  66. Troy, at this point I figure that Putin tried to influence the election for Trump because he wanted a stronger U.S. on the world stage. Russia is in no position to shoulder the responsibility of dealing with all the crap going on in the world, and far better to let the U.S. handle it. In addition, as the U.S. weakens, a lot of regional players (say, in Eastern Europe) are likely to arm themselves even more.

  67. I’m with Oso.

  68. Fifth percentile for height and weight. Fifty seven for head size.

    My niece and nephew were wee bebbehs like that. They’re now in their 20s and the nephew is not much taller than I am… 5’5″ or 5’6″? His weight is more normal to packing on a few pounds side. Niece is 5’1″, maybe. Slender.

    My kids were 90% in height and prolly head size. Fifteen for weight. They’re still long and thin. Son is 6’1″..140ish. (Same size and build as his uncle who is father to the above.) Daughter 5’7″, 125#.

  69. I can’t remember how many weeks the husband gets for PTO, which for them includes vacation time, holidays, sick days. But if they don’t use it all in the given year, they lose it. It doesn’t roll over anymore.

  70. I have always had a Charlie Brown head. Perfectly round. Led to many Peanuts references as nicknames. Once I got my glasses, I became Marcy.

  71. Homerun derby guys.

  72. Is Charlie Brown head similar to Bed head? Because Mare has that every morning.

  73. HotBride had her colonoscopy and gastro endoscopy this morning. She was passing gas from both ends.

  74. Did it blow your bangs back?

  75. lol!

  76. Considering that Hillary was openly talking about intervening in Syria, I figure that was all the motivation Putin needed. This election meddling shit is just so disingenuous. Uh, any country worth a shit meddles in the elections of other countries. It’s called promoting your interest. So I have no problem if Putin preferred Trump to that fucking train wreck of a human being called Hillary Clinton.

  77. He doesn’t like Hillary because she smells like boiled cabbage and urine.

  78. If John McCain did a burpee do you think his head would burst?

  79. Laura, Mr. RFH’s holiday leave is four days he can take whenever in lieu of having certain federal holidays off, e.g. he can have the day off after Thanksgiving but would work on Columbus Day. It doesn’t carry over to the next year. PTO can carry over but only so many hours.

    I get annual leave and sick leave. Only so much annual leave carries over to the next year, so people with use-or-lose sometimes donate it to co-workers fighting cancer or caring for an ill family member.

  80. I still wouldn’t be in a heap because I can out stubborn her novice arse.

    Roamy ♥ Beasn.

  81. I shaved off my beard Sunday, first using the lowest comb on the beard trimmer and then a razor. This morning I noticed my eyebrows needed a trim, and I forgot that I changed the guide on the trimmer from a #3 to bare fucking skin. Right eyebrow is but a faded memory, left lives in fear of “evening it out”. I was pretty close to Pink Floyding the whole head this morning, I shouldn’t use sharp objects when I’m up at 2AM.

    Sean warned me to “stay out of San Bernardino” when I was here for work a couple of years ago, but I think he may have been joshing me, the area I’m working in is actually kind of nice, and the hotel in Loma Linda is OK too.

    I’m not sure if I’m cript or blood so I’m wearing a rainbow colored outfit.

  83. Did it blow your bangs back?

    LOL

  84. Pupster Pink Floyding it. There was a girl in junior high school that did that. I hadn’t seen “The Wall” at that time, so I have no idea if she was inspired or just high and stupid.

  85. Did it blow your bangs back?

    If John McCain did a burpee do you think his head would burst?

    I was about to poat that Jimbro won the thread until I scrolled to MJ’s comment. IT’S A TIE!!

    *still chortling in my shorts*

  86. and I forgot that I changed the guide on the trimmer from a #3 to bare fucking skin.

    Poor Pups.
    Friend of mine in grade school wanted to thin out her Italian unibrow. She showed up to school minus both. LOL She looked horrible as they grew back in.
    This was junior high age. (our grade school went K-8)

  89. This morning I noticed my eyebrows needed a trim, and I forgot that I changed the guide on the trimmer from a #3 to bare fucking skin. Right eyebrow is but a faded memory, left lives in fear of “evening it out”.

    Pupster, I love you very very much. That laugh was like an ab crunch workout. I recently saw someone who had shaved off both their eyebrows, so I am familiar with how much it alters the appearance.

    You’re going to stay home until righty grows back, right?

  90. Did everyone remember to leave some Whole Foods organic ginger snaps and kombucha out for Jeff Bezos so that he’ll fill your Prime Day hampers with amazing deals?

  91. Sean warned me to “stay out of San Bernardino” when I was here for work a couple of years ago, but I think he may have been joshing me, the area I’m working in is actually kind of nice, and the hotel in Loma Linda is OK too.

    My dad is actually out there on business fairly frequently, and he hasn’t died yet. But there are parts of that town that are a fucking nightmare.

    Hit me up if you want to grab some lunch on Wednesday or Thursday, Pups.

  92. Maybe pups can borrow an eyebrow from Justin in Canada.

  93. So, I have a new hobby:

  95. Mailman came this morning
    Brought a message by
    Said it was from my derp
    Think I know just why

  96. It’s OK, nobody knows me ou here. Besides, it is not noticeable.

    https://is.gd/pUEzsx

  97. Hit me up if you want to grab some lunch on Wednesday or Thursday, Pups.

    OK, but no pictures.
