Friday salutations from sweltery Happy Larryville, GN!

TeX --

I’m seconding teh request for pics of your lighting project when it’s finished; olive Edison bulbs.

As will not surprise you, my replacement T-Mobile handset did not arrive yesterday, despite what I was told by the dipshit at the retail store on Wednesday. When I phoned customer (lack of) service yesterday to follow-up, it took them more than ten minutes just to translate the internal “Order ID” I was given to a UPS tracking number. Which was wrong, as despite careful confirmation with the moron I spoke with, what I was assured was the letter “O” was actually a zero. Of course, UPS’ website told me it was an invalid tracking number.

So I went back to the store; SackO’SugarK was kind enough to accompany me to document whatever transpired (and keep me from going farking ballistic). It seems that a new handset should be delivered today, but I ain’t holding my breath. ‘Cause, hey, it’s not like shipping resser-fresser phones is part of their core business or anything…

A certified nastygram will be sent to their chief mouth-breather, one John J. Legere, next week. And will conclude with one of my favorite phrases: “If I do not hear back from you in writing within ten business days, I will assume that you do not dispute the facts as stated above”. 😉

Given yesterday’s sub-par presidenting re James Foley, I wonder what Obama’s, erm, handicap is. 😉

Which brings to mind this old “In Living Color” character:

We need to cut him slack: when was the last time you got all worked up over a jayvee team, Fatwa?

I can’t wait for the next photos out of the ISIS camp--if they really want piss off Obama, they should wear Lakers’ jerseys.

Hai, Sven!

…when was the last time you got all worked up over a jayvee team, Fatwa?

Never, due to my complete lack of interest in sports. 😉

I like the Lakers jersey gag. (Although teh Damascus Headchoppers would be a more accurate team name.)

The phrase “bomb them back to the stone age” really doesn’t apply (since they’re already there); I’d like to see them bombed back to the formation of the solar system. ‘Cause I’m an “extremist”.

There you go. But to be fair, their behavior is little different than the brutality routinely exhibited just a few hundred miles south of here.

Apparently Jeff G. is considering going out of business. Protein Wisdom — I’ve been there the entire 13 years, even though I mostly lurked around.

This is a sad, sad, sad thing.

Um, yeah — about that. Ah, I lost the use of my hands in an unfortunate and bizarre tree-trimming accident. Sorry, no captioning tonight.

PW is biting the dust, what but a captioning contest could pull us out of our funk? Sniff.

And here I thought it was just a cruel about no captioning. Reality bites.
