Ok, that thread pic is just eerie.

Good morning, Gerbils! It’s freakin’ cold here in Happy Larry-ville, and the sky is totally overcast.

Apparently the super primo time to view Ison is on the 28th, but I expect that our sky will be all cloudy as usual. We never get decent viewing weather for the cool death comets.

Happy Hell Hound Tuesday from brisk, drear and drizzly Larryville, GN!

Awesome thread GIF, Mac.

Yup…it’s currently 33.1 degrees here with a chance of snow for tomorrow night. (Which, fortunately, ought not interfere with our plans to go shopping after dinner on Thursday. Because I lurve shopping to begin with; the madding hordes of doorbuster monkeys merely add to the experience and make me feel oh-so-freakin’-festive.)

We never get decent viewing weather for the cool death comets.

Yeah…what a gyp.

At this time of year, I’m very thankful I don’t work retail anymore. Particularly since the older I’ve gotten, the stabbier I’ve gotten. (Screw mellowing-out; it’s highly overrated.)

He’s a lier -- we are categorically NOT going shopping at any time on either Thursday or Friday.

That.is.not.happening. We’re more than happy to let the crazies have a field day up to the mall, without our presence.

Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Brenda and Fatwa!

Today is the last day of school before Thanksgiving break, so I’ll be giving a district-mandated performance task -- a test. All departments/subjects were to create these “common core-like” tests as a way to get our students and ourselves ready for the new way of evaluating student performance -- except we don’t know what the Common Core tests will look like, so it’s all just pissing into the wind. The key is that students will have to read longer passages, then answer a series of questions related to that passage, but no more multiple choice -- written answers only. Funny thing is, about six years ago we were told to transition to all multiple choice tests so that we could scan our answer documents and perform better data analysis. I guess data isn’t so important anymore.

Hey, Paddy!

…so it’s all just pissing into the wind.

As long as you don’t also:

1) Tug on Superman’s cape
2) Pull the mask off the old Lone Ranger
3) Mess around with Jim

I guess data isn’t so important anymore.

Not when it provides undesirable (aka “actually useful”) results.

That reminds me of an audience I once played for.

I’m not a big rap fan, but this has sufficient snark about 404Care and is pretty well produced:

Ladies and gentlemen your attention please
Come up close so everyone can see
I got a tale to tell and listening won’t cost a dime
And if you believe that, we’ll all get along just fine.

Performing on a stool we’ve a sight to make you drool
Seven virgins and a mule
Keep it cool. Keep it cool.
We would like it to be known the exhibits that were shown
Were exclusively our own,
All our own. All our own.
Come and see the show! Come and see the show! Come and see the show!
See the show!

Funny how all these bands anticipated the current scene, eh?

I heard that the Obama folks are worried about the ‘fixed’ web site crashing and want to level load demand. Everybody ought to hammer that b*tch on December 1 and let’s see what happens.

And out here in SoCal, Obama has the balls to fund raise and actually blame Republicans again. How stupid are these lefties?

I’m surprised someone hasn’t done an Obama montage to this one:
