A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!

Is it time for coffee? Why, yes, it is!

Happy Sunday, folks.

Mac: nicely done bookcases. I’m jealous. This weekend I’ve been boxing up books and taking them to the Salvation Army. I would love to keep them, but I’m just flat out of room.

Hai, Paddy and Sven!

Sven --

I hope the books you’ve taken to the Salvation Army will find appreciative new homes.

This actually made me laugh: Wyoming Man Found with 30 Eyeballs in His Anal Cavity

Police made a routine traffic stop early Thursday morning and got more than they bargained for when Roy Tilbott, 51, stepped out of his El Camino for a field sobriety test and Casper police noticed several eyeballs slide from his right pant leg onto the road.

Feeling they could have a potential murderer on their hands, police quickly drew guns and cuffed Tilbott.

Tilbott assured police the eyeballs were not human, but instead cow eyeballs he had pilfered from Johnson Meats (a slaughterhouse) where Tilbott is employed as a butcher.

I was reminded of the proctologist who, upon examining a man who’d accidentally swallowed his glass eye remarked, “I’ve looked up a lot of azzholes but this is the first time I’ve ever had one look back!

[Insert obvious Nietzsche reference here]

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, something unexpected looks back at you.

Wonder if there’s any crime involved here?

Might be employee theft (per the article).

Yet again, I’m startled at what some folks get up to.

My rule of thumb going forward Mac, is “will I read this again or will I need it again before I die”? If no, then out it goes. In some cases, these are books that yeah, meant something to me before but no longer do. Given the space, I’d hold on to them, but we don’t have the space.

I find myself dumping several Ann Coulter, Mark Levin, Mark Steyn, and other political/cultural tomes. I read them all once, got some chuckles or information out of them, but then never opened them again. So off they go.

I culled books in 2004 before moving to Cleveland with another light culling before relocating to CasaK in ’08. Probably won’t do much more of that.

I figure if I ever move again, it’ll be ’cause we won the lottery and can pay someone else to pack all the books. Or I’ll be taking a dirt nap and the kids’ll have to deal with ’em. Either way, it’s a win. 🙂

I see the San Bernardino po-po must not have much serious crime to deal with anymore, since four of them recently dressed as panhandlers to catch seat belt and cell phone violators.

I’m sure it’s not about the revenue.
