That cartoon reminds me that my Dad checked out about 2 weeks after Bill Clinton was sworn in in 1993. My Dad was the “original conservative” I think. He was really disturbed over BC’s winning that election! I mean, not happy at all.
I might as well go for the dreaded 10-peat! Nobody here and I have the keys to the Fiefdom!
NO SOUP FOR YOU!
I’m here, -fritz- … in fact, I’ve been here since 0432 hours. I just didn’t comment because I didn’t feel like it … wasn’t in the mood … you know. *o*
Thank you Adolf Turbo!
When are you ever in the mood Texacaliph? DYSWIDT?
Yes, yes, I SWYDT. And I’m currently in the mood to open up a can of whoopa$$. Maybe I can use the one that Romo left in his locker last night.
[That was exceptionally mean and hard hitting. I'll apologize later ... if I'm in the mood to do so].
You are forgiven in advance for your Romo comment. I’m very sure he’s not too happy with himself this a.m.!
My cold has returned after being exposed to so many germs and family members in SoCal. I’ll drag myself into work for a few and then spend the Eve cozy & warm & safe away from the throngs.
This year has been bad. 2014 bodes to be dire. I’ll bring my own long extension cord, BTW. I’m a great babysitter and I’ll even learn how to cook. Anyone??
I have an outdoor plug, 100 ft. extension cord and a place to park! The use of the pool, and Julio the pool boy, will cost extra!
I do windows. Keep the light on.
What do you want me to tell Julio? He’s still broken hearted because Tink has been ignoring him lately!
Just don’t take my kids to Barnes and Nobles and you can come here. We could even build you extra space out of LEGO.
I suspect I’d be sleeping with lots of action figures, too.
Thanks for the offer. I’m making a list. You’re on it.
Rescue Heroes have really big feet…..
So do I. Ask Floyd.
I’ve got two spare bedrooms and you can babysit my mom.
OK. You’re on the list, too.
I plan to celebrate by working hard on my translation project. Hours and hours of free time! That’s what I call luxury.
Ooops. I thought this was a trailer; it’s a 43 minute episode.
I watched the whole episode, it was fascinating. I enjoyed it right up to the end. Now I’m fit to be tied over the way the maps showing the areas of Viking conquest. The map of the British Isles was titled England. I get enraged by that every time it happens. Scots are not English they may be British but they are NOT ENGLISH! Even as an American for most of my life I feel rage every time I come across this misnomer. I can’t imagine a map of the British Isles withe name Scotland, Wales, or (God forbid), Northern Ireland!
OK. I think I’ll go have a wee dram of English Glen Fiddish and try to calm down.
Unfortunately I don’t have cable. I hope it shows up on Netflix.
Thanks for the echo (see my post directly above yours!)
… with a 28 minute delay. But it’s worth repeating. I’ve forwarded to my 100 closest friends and family members. Thanks!
ED has removed the duplicate, so your comment doesn’t make sense now. Mine still does, just because.
A good quote from a comic book reviewer on Aquaman:
“What’s that? You want me to start making jokes about how useless Aquaman is? (Laughs)… Aquaman is the king of Atlantis, whose domain pretty much encompasses the entirety of the ocean. He owns 70% of the planet! He is super strong, super fast, and he can summon Cthulhu to eat your soul if he felt like it. The perception of Aquaman as ‘useless’ is based on the Super Friends cartoon series, where Aquaman’s superpower is that he owns a jet ski. …I don’t make fun of Aquaman.”
In that spirit, DC Comics has a new (small*) crossover out called THRONES OF ATLANTIS which I plan to start reading today.
*Small by most standards. Its 6 issues, not counting the “prelude”, and contains two series. So it ain’t some massive event.
If that doesn’t convonce anyone that he’s not useless, then maybe this guy will …
It’s a sniglet; it means to have your excuse accepted only one time. For example:
OK, Helm. You have manged to convonce me, but the next time I find women’s underwear in your truck’s glove compartment …
You get he idea. You’re a real wordsmith, you are.
You just created a verb for “mange.” I love it. “Your dog manged my dog!”
Ooopps! You’re not the only wordsmith around here!
Neologisms for everyone!
Aw, geez, Marcoe! There ya go gettin’ all techknuckle and stuff! College boy!!
The guy once called up a school of fish to defeat his enemies. The fish in question? GREAT WHITE SHARKS.
Got back here after nice trip to USA. Nearly broke my toe the morning we left. Literally as we were walking out. I thouhgt it was broken because it was hanging there at a very unnatural angle. Its fine now. Taped it and I can move it so it appears its a very bad sprain. Cool things: The USA is really all snowy. You can see it from the air. Its awesome.
Korea is cold and snowy. Misty eyed New Years. 2012 sucked. BTW cherry on top of the other cherry on top of the familial shit sandwich fate threw at my family: My Uncle Stan died. Guadal Canal Marine…Semper Fi Uncle Stan…
Hope every one’s New Years is good. Find your Fiscal Cliff NEw YEars eve hangover and have a good one. F it all.
