September ends, Fall begins.

I can’t do this.

As long as no twerking happens, this stays classy.

Blush in the gym seems foolish. I get that this was a glamour shot, but this was a poor makeup choice.

There’s a lot to like here.

And the illusion of a lot to like here.

She kicks high.

I usually swing to face height, I’ve heard this can be rough on your RCs.

Now get out there and do something adequate. Compared to everyone who’s stopped trying, it’ll be amazing.

  1. The wandering barn cat came back again. Near as I can tell she took some kind of a weekend trip and then showed up like nothing happened.

  2. Cats are assho

  3. wakey wakey.

    That’s an American KB swing. To the head is Russian.

  4. Americans. always gotta one up the euros

  5. Maybe blush girl is just lifting something really heavy. Or figured out her butt is showing.

  6. Yea, I don’t know why we gotta go higher. If they’re light I will, but the heavy ones are the ones that really get you, and I only take them to my head.

  7. haha, love the Rigata Cheese Cake recipe at AOS. Love misspellings like that, gives that recipe a memory. And her handwriting looks like my grandmother’s on mom’s side.

  8. Who’s reading for wedding stories?

  9. So, you’re saying your a russian bot when it’s heavy? See, the lefties are right!

  10. First – that hike was amazing. And hard. it was 3 hours of up … steep paths, or stairs, and often climbing up rocks. going down was quicker, but technically not easier. The pictures don’t really do it justice, because when I look at it in person I can’t believe I actually went all the way up there. Pictures don’t capture scale well.

  11. those little hills sure look easy from my desk chair.

  12. took some good pictures, car in. I could swear you had makeup on in one pic, but that certainly couldn’t be, right?

  13. No makeup. I … (whispers) had my eyelashes done. It’s like magic. I look like I have makeup, but i’ve done NOTHING.

    A friend of mine did them. it’s a side gig for her.

  14. If I do ‘merican style in my basement gym I’ll take out a light or a rafter.

  15. Are your ceilings 5 feet tall?

  16. Add 4 more to pic #4 and make it next years blog cover pic, and for the header “celebrating 14 big ones.
    Or maybe that’s Pupsters realm.

  17. The real question is whether you got to stop at Buc’ees.

  18. I think I’ve been to Table Rock Park, but I’m pretty sure I didn’t do that hike.

  19. If you’re short on time, skip to about 11:20, that’s the clip that’s going around Twitter this morning. The new prime minister of Italy.

  20. Also, how many freakin’ updates does Windows need to do? This is the fourth reboot since Friday. Fuckers.

  21. twitter: italian prime minister nails it

    Of course the left compares her to Mussolini. News flash, fascism is a lefty philosophy, conservatives want less government.

  22. Car in beat me to it. My brother just sent it.

  23. Lumpy, re the dog picture I posted yesterday…yes, it’s a mastiff. My neighbor got theirs from a breeder. By the time she’s done growing, she’ll be 120 to 150 lbs.

  24. sorry, roamy. typed the wrong name

  25. 3 more. fat fingered it and didn’t proof read

  26. Well, so far Ian isn’t turning west like they were projecting yesterday. We are still firmly in the Danger Zone. I should probably stock up on Resilient Beefy Grex.

  27. I don’t even know where to start on this wedding.

    the bridal party’s house (my sons, bil, etc) was an HOUR AND A HALF FROM the venue. 90 minutes. It was an HOUR from that house to the reception hall. From the chapel (pretty place, it’s called) to the reception all was an hour. It was an hour from the airport to the house.

    All this wouldn’t have been too bad if my nephew had been at all organized. Or thoughtful. People didn’t have rides. Things got left behind or forgotten that needed to then be figured out.

    My boys got to the house Wednesday night – getting a text that the location had moved while they were traveling. They were supposed to be all closer to greenville – w/in 30 min of everything. Plus that’s where the airport was- where people were flying in. Most people booked rooms in Greenville. But nope – last minute change that made zero sense. So Thursday morning, the boys had to hop in the car for the trek to greenville to get their suits.

    To make matters worse, my nephew decided it would be super cool to rent a corvette to drive around – which held him, his bride to be … and NOTHING else. Not luggage. not the golf clubs he had brought. He’s such an airhead, he turned up at the airport in that to pick up his three friends at the airport. They had to rent a car last minute . duh. His dad had to shuttle friends, and him and his wife to the airport in the end – I don’t know how many trips he made.

    My bil had to deal with most of it. Make up for their lack of planning. He basically spent three days running around, driving back and forth. The wedding party was even LATE to the wedding, and the pastor basically had to rush the speeches (he was talking really fast) to get done before they kicked us out.

    There is more. So much more.

    But our cabin was super cool and a mile from that park entrance. It’s a shame more people hadn’t just found nice cabins in that area. the drive to the chapel and reception were about 35 minutes, so much closer for us.

  28. Yes, we did stop at Buc’ees. That place is crazy.

  29. There is a really lovely 2 mile hike in the park too – Creekside. We did that one on Thursday. Very pretty . It’s a very highly rated hike.

  30. I’m loving Giorgia Meloni.

  31. two sets of golf clubs are missing … and the kegs /taps never got returned.

    The kegs – they forgot to plan to pick them up for the reception, so two of the grooms friends were sent out (mind you, the ceremony was supposed to start at 12:30) the morning of. They sent them an hour one way, to find it was the wrong place. They had to go an hour in a different direction.

    Cluster fuck.

  32. The golf clubs – no one knows where they are. Did they get left at the house? Maybe. Mystery. Groom’s and one of his groomsmen’s.

  33. Ian is heading for my Ethan.

    Which is funny because Ian is my firstborn’s name.


  34. I don’t even know where to start on this wedding.

    I’ll give it 18 months. (24 tops)

  35. The reception hall had a sweet in it. They couple were going to stay there. At midnight, they decided they weren’t comfortable there, and ubered to Greenville. Becuase, of course, nothing fits in the corvette which they leave at the venue. Get to new hotel … car leaves … there are no rooms. they reacquire an uber and go elsewhere. Meanwhile – the next morning, my bil needs to get them and their stuff and take them to the airport and somehow return the corvette.

    That’s when the call came in about the kegs not being returned. Fuck it. He was at our cabin at that point, and returning the kegs would have been a 4 hour ordeal.

    What I also didn’t understand – her family was larger- she has three siblings. My nephew has zero, and us and my sil’s family. That’s it. so almost everyone there was her family. His mom is dad and none of his mom’s relatives showed.

    Her side of the family gave about 5 speeches (one apparently causing controversy), and basically were the majority. Yet … all her family – none of them could do any of the wedding bs running around. Nope. Just my bil. He drove home with a car jam packed with all their wedding shit.

  36. Dunzo inside a year.

  37. and with all the missteps, that guy didn’t think anything of it, no remorse for lost time, everyone should wait on him. Usually it’s bridezilla, good to see airhead guy getting some air time.

  38. The groom’s clubs? Sounds like his head ain’t attached right. Maybe he’ll learn something from his lack of clearly planning/thinking. Or maybe not. If the latter, I’m with hotspur. Unless the bride is just as dopey.

  39. Just read your last bit, Car in. Yeah, it struck me in that where was the bride in all this? Brides are usually on top of details.

  40. I hope they make it.

    However it seems like this guy is a bit free spirited.

  41. I’m sure someone allied with a research lab could spirit away an unopened vial or two. It wouldn’t be “official” research but they could publish the results and allow Pfizer to either confirm or deny them

  42. Brides are usually on top of details.
    ——
    That’s what gives me hope for them making it. If it was that much of a shit show that means that they’re made for each other and will stumble through life together without a care in the world

  43. Athlete wearing blush was to distract you from her cameltoe

  44. If they do “make it” I hope to God there are no children, because they’d be a trainwreck raised by those two.

  45. After reading that story I feel a lot better about myself as a person.

  46. We’re betting she’ll be pregnant w/in a few months. Her sister just had a baby. so … place your bets.

    I don’t wish any ill, and I do hope it works out. My guess is that he was the one who took control of planning, she just had certain visions. He’s not a good planner, and she went with it. He often does things by the seat of his pants. Which would have been fine if they’d had an “easier” wedding plan. He’s lucky he had his dad. Disaster was averted many times by his willingness to fix things.

  47. Its just weird that the brides wife apparently had no other role but to show up and sorta … position herself as mother of the bride. From what I saw, she did nothing.

  48. That Meloni speech is out of this world. That was an arrow delivered squarely to Brussels’ hive brain. I am sure they are all choking on it at this exact moment.

  49. It’s really good.

    It’s the concept that once your individuality is removed, you have no value.

    It sound hyperbolic but this is how you get the gas chamber.

  50. MJ is queer as 3 peso gum wrapper but he’s not wrong here.

  51. Giorgia Meloni == Kari Lake

  52. Yep. These are some stern women. Thatcher-ish.

  53. You can feel safe in NYC

  54. I’m puzzled as to why the left is so scared of those 2 nazis.

  55. Kari Lake is very direct. Nothing wishy-washy about her positions or how she states them.

    I imagine Meloni is similar although other than that speech I haven’t heard much from her. They certainly are going out of their way to paint her as a radical fascist dictator. Hopefully she sounds like Kari Lake does in the original Italian because reading translations doesn’t give the exact same feeling.

  56. They certainly are going out of their way to paint her as a radical fascist dictator.

    twitter: like this, jimbro?

  57. Why didn’t anyone wish me happy daughter’s day? Did you assume my gender?

  58. Exactly like that. It seems like they found their new Trump.

    If they’re not careful Meloni-Hatred will replace Ukraine as the current thing

  59. Daughter’s Day

    Double D

    I can support that

  60. Florida observation: LOTS of tattoos. People are definitely not reading their Leviticus around here.

  61. Hospitals are trying to cut down on hiring traveling nurses and locum tenum doctors to halt the bleeding in their budgets. Paula was offered an overnight shift last night but had a few things already scheduled for today and declined it. Tomorrow they have a 9-9 shift (her usual one) that’s critical need status (I think that’s the term) and they come with a $500 bonus on top of the regular pay. She took it.

  62. What’s the deal with Catholics and tattoos? Serious question, my mother mentioned it a long time ago and I thought it was one of those tactics to dissuade me from ever getting one. They weren’t legal in MA way back then anyway.

  63. Grrr. Closing date for the house got pushed back a day. Hurricanes are so FASCIST.

  64. https://catholic-link.org/can-catholics-get-tattoo/

  65. I was raped last week.

  66. When I was a lad the only people who got tattoos were bikers, sailors, and criminals.
    So, you know FASCISTS.

  67. That’s a relief, it would be a pain to get this covered up

  69. *Consults bible* Lev 19.28 “You shall not make any gashes in your flesh for the dead or tattoo any marks upon you: I am the LORD.”

    Seems pretty straightforward to me but I’m no bible scholar. Also, there’s lots of stuff in Leviticus nobody pays attention to either like hairstyles and beard issues.

  70. The Catholic understanding is that the binding parts of Leviticus on Christians (and Jews who’ve perfected their faith by recognizing Jesus as Messiah) are the moral precepts only, not the ritual sacrifices nor hygenic practices. Part of the reasoning on tattooing/body marking was that every tribe around the Twelve were doing that to mark themselves as Caananite or Hoosier or whatever, and the only mark of being a Son of Abraham was supposed to be circumcision. The proscription in context was primarily about not taking on the marks of another tribe.

    That said, you’re still not supposed to take on tribal or membership type markings, as I understand it, at least not ones that would mark you as outside the Body of Christ.

  71. I thought the CW died?

  72. IIRC they are first cousins so he definitely should not be doing that.

  73. Genetically, bad idea, but she’s the closest thing to a surviving member of the same species there is.

    And, like She Hulk, she only exists to protect a more popular IP from dilution by a competitor. See Captain Marvel/Shazam for what happens when you don’t get that right.

  74. I don’t think she’s an actual “cousin” either, that’s just how the Kents played it when she came to live on the farm after arriving on Earth. She’s just a sort-of-Kryptonian from one of their colonies iirc.

  75. According to the Wiki they are definitely cousins. For a fun read look up “Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex” by Larry Niven.

  76. Yeah, a lot of Leviticus is about making sure the Israelites remain set apart from the tribes around them. While the specifics aren’t relevant today, the general principle certainly applies.

    This story about the Catholic dad being arrested in front of his children is really making me angry.

  77. It’s bad when I’m tracking a hurricane to keep from boiling over at my beloved Moron Horde.

    Some of them will talk of legal remedies and working within the system as they’re being hustled into the gas chambers.

  78. Me too, Peel. I’ve heard him speak at least once. You’d have a tough time finding a more decent man. I should see if there’s any way to donate to his legal defense or make sure his family stays solvent.

    That was fantastic. I love that stuff.

  80. Man some people are so humorless. Cripes.

    I get spoiled here and sometimes forget that there are a lot of people out there who are 1) stupid and/or 2) have no sense of humor.

  81. RC already shared my news about DART. Nothing quite like cosmic pool at 15,000 mph. A bit less than two hours from now (7:14 PM Eastern) on NASA TV, youtube, Facedouche, etc.

  82. heh, 3d pool too

  83. Though it’s one project I haven’t worked on. I worked on a different DART that was automated rendezvous technology. Didn’t do very well.

    Faster, better, cheaper, pick two.

    I was actually thinking about that angle. It’s too goofy. But I know nothing is off limits to the left.

  85. Mare, did you evacuate?

  86. I’m still in Maui, Roamy. My home is fine. But we are very concerned about my daughter’s home which has been flooded once before. She will stay at our home with her husband and son who is a year and 4 months old and my daughter is 6.5 months pregnant so her husband is on his own moving stuff off their floors getting stuff into our truck and whatnot.

    Any prayers for sweet little home would be greatly appreciated. She doesn’t work now and it’s a small home but all they have. He is now a paramedic. (hoo boy, the stories.)

  87. Just saw an update about the hurricane on a weather report, current projection sure looks like it’s heading towards Tampa. :-/

  88. Mitch, are you in Tampa? I can’t remember. I’m near there.

  89. hurricanes hit deep red florida and texas so much more than deep blue Oregon, Washington, Connecticut, and New York. Coincidence?

  90. If we didn’t have hurricanes we’d be too awesome?

  91. Not in Tampa, but 30 miles northeast in the great skydiving capital of Zephyrhills. So we have some buffer zone working for us, which is nice.

  92. https://is.gd/8VOLig

    (Imgur video with sound of mastication)

  93. Zephryhills? That’s where the bottled water comes from! Arrowhead brand has different names in different parts of the country.

  94. Dimorphos got hit!

  95. Woot!

  96. Girls are so dramatic. My CF friend is on her second hot-mess teenage daughter. This one is 13 and the last year has gotten worse and worse. This summer and last few months she’s taken it up a notch and my friend smelled POT coming from her room before school. upon advice from all of us (I stand by it) she removed all the “want” things from her room. and the door. The daughter freaked out and said she took pills/wrote a goodby letter.

    It looks like she only took a few/maybe 5 tylenol PM pills. But in the ER she’s been full drama.

    I. Would. Beat. Her. Ass.

  97. Yes Oso! I just picked up a couple gallons of Zephyrhills bottled water today in fact. Arrowhead is a big brand on the west coast of course. Didn’t know they were related.

    Take that Dimophos!

  98. I find this interesting.

    “According to Lewis, “Family is a terrible way to satisfy our desire for love and care,” and ought to be abolished.

    The family you love, the home you’ve built — those are things to be dispensed with by the State, or “the revolutionary politics of family abolition,” as Maglaque put it.

    Get warm on your community gruel, comrades — there’s no heat in the barracks tonight.

    This is not the first time Lewis has called for abolishing the family. Her first book was Full Surrogacy Now: Feminism Against Family. In it, she said that many more pregnancies should be surrogate because “In doing so,” summarized one review, “we break down our assumptions that children necessarily belong to those whose genetics they share.”

    Interesting because WHICH is the side that worships the dystopian novel about surrogacy? About the theocratic, fascist right forcing surrogacy on women?

  99. Mitch, when we can’t get Arrowhead, we get Ozarka out of Arkansas. Texas DC. My favorite, local water company has the Kirkland and the Members Mark accounts. Same water. Different packaging. Costco members swear Kirkland water is better.

  100. Tonight’s Ancient Aliens name checks Sobek. Reptoid aliens created humans through genetic manipulation. You have a lot to answer for buddy.

    Bottled water is a scam. Fun fact: bottled water is regulated by the FDA, whereas tap water has MUCH more stringent quality and testing regulations under the EPA.

  101. We had a spring nearby my neighborhood in MA. Blue Hills Spring was about a mile away from my house. Every now and then a big 18 wheeler truck would fill up at the spring. They let it trickle out on a granite slab and people would fill gallon containers with it. Since we were dumb kids we just crouched down and drank the water off the rock as it flowed over.

  102. We don’t tap. You can smell the water in San Diego. Amarillo. Las Vegas. HI has the best tap water.

  103. Jimbro, there are springs of meltoff water in NM. So very cold. We are known for giardiasis in our river water.

  104. How is NM like Kauai? The water. Giardiasis

  105. giardiasis

  106. He deleted his account after going hard after the Covington Kid. We love him.

  107. Public perception of water quality is an interesting thing. Modern Vegas water is of course mostly from the Colorado river but its historical source was a spring right in the heart of the valley. It’s why the city exists actually. Anyway, the water is hard because CR flows through areas with lots of calcium carbonate. Calcium is actually a beneficial supplement that people pay for. It doesn’t really affect the taste though, that’s the residual chlorine needed to keep the water in the pipelines suitable for consumption, common in most public water supply systems. If it bothers you all you have to do is put a pitcher of water in the fridge for a couple hours and that residual chlorine will dissipate. SNWA does routine blind taste test panels and water “bottled” this way is indistinguishable from name brands like Evian.

    That said, the best water I remember tasting was well water at my grandparent’s farm in the Ozarks. LOADS of minerals and super cold right out of the well itself.

    Reptoids live underground. Global Gov’t is deeply involved with them. This is a big reason world gov’t agencies are increasingly indifferent to “human” rights of their citizens. We don’t really matter and are going to be replaced.

  109. My grandparents had a cistern.

  110. Bottled water is a scam. Fun fact: bottled water is regulated by the FDA, whereas tap water has MUCH more stringent quality and testing regulations under the EPA.

    Feh. Outlying areas of CT I’ve lived have tapwater that smells swamp-green when you run the faucet. City water here is pretty darn good. I still filter it or boil it or let it set, to get the chlorine out before I use it for fresh purposes.

  111. we have great tap water

  112. Our city water is bad. We’re old school with ice trays. Our first fridge lasted 20+ years.

  113. Outlying areas of CT I’ve lived have tapwater that smells swamp-green when you run the faucet.

    I should qualify my remarks – water that comes out of the tap is not necessarily municipal supplied EPA regulated “tap” water. Lots of people get water from property wells and yeah you’ll get lots of differing water qualities of course. At the house we lived in near Panama City in the 80’s was one of those and it stank of sulfur. Parental Units paid much for extensive additional water treatment system.

  114. Lots of calcium in the water here. I have a reverse osmosis filter to prevent another round of kidney stones.

  115. We have calcium and lime. Arsenic.

  116. Stirring the pot. There are states and cities that can’t collect rain water.

  117. so project veritas lost a decision

  118. Our tap water is your bottled water.

  119. Not all states have claims to great water.

  120. evian is naive

  121. True Story: one day I got a water quality customer complaint routed to me where a woman read a story in the local newspaper about the Neptune Society doing cremation ash distributions in lake Mead and she absolutely appalled that she was drinking dead people.

  122. “Reptoid aliens created humans through genetic manipulation. You have a lot to answer for buddy.”

    I answer to no human.

  123. “Bottled water is a scam. Fun fact: bottled water is regulated by the FDA, whereas tap water has MUCH more stringent quality and testing regulations under the EPA.”

    Yeah, and the EPA is just crushing it, right?

    I’m not saying bottled water isn’t a scam, but considering how bad they let Flint get, I’m under the impression that protecting consumers is not the EPA’s highest priority (high dollar shakedowns are their highest priority).

  124. https://tinyurl.com/574ascdb

  125. Flint is another kettle of fish. The owls are not what they seem. It’s a nigh-Lynchian-type affair going on there worthy of a deep dive into what really went rong.

  126. Yeah, the gold mine spill too. Company line was “It doesn’t affect us or our water quality. No comment.”

    it was just one of several Bricks In The Wall why I left government employment.

  127. Finally, all I can say about national EPA vs DFA water quality standards is that EPA is still a higher standard than DFA. Your local well quality may vary considerably. In Vegas your first 1,000 gallons of potable water is a total of $1.40. Go ahead and buy your Arrowhead bottled “Mountain Spring” water at ONE gallon for $2.95 at the grocery store. It’s really worth that fantastic mark-up. Surely.

  128. I try not to drink water. Fish fuck in it.

  129. Don emphasized Ruthie’s positives.
