Teh Squeaky Wheel
Good morning, fellow Wheelizens; Tuesday after a Monday holiday equals gaaaaaaaaaaah!
Congrats to NASA’s team on the successful arrival and orbiting of the Juno probe; no reports yet of any monoliths or warnings about Europa. 🙂
And in other space probe news, here’s a rocket to Uranus:
*Insert “gas giant” joke here*
Good morning, happy Tuesday, and here’s hoping no one ends up today with a rocket up their butt.
Huh. Apparently there’s two sets of laws: 1) if your name is Clinton, and 2) if you are everybody else.
Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
I read this morning that our intrepid state attorney general is investigating why Californians paid up to $1.50 more per gallon of gasoline than the rest of the nation when the Exxon Mobile refinery in Torrance exploded last year. Could it be because we have insufficient refining capacity in this state? Could it be because we haven’t built a new refinery since Mac was young? Could it be because California requires a unique gas formulation that no other state creates, making it difficult to import? No, it must be collusion among the major oil companies.
Hai, Sven and Paddy!
Hillary’s going to walk.
Anyone who follows the law from here on out is a chump.
Burn the fucking system to the ground.
Good morning! Im back from my glorious vacay in Baja. We caught lots of fish, swam with porpoises, snorkeled in a crystal clear ocean, ate buckets of clams and got lots of sun. Back to work with maybe a cracked rib…teh boat took a lunge at me the last day when we were pulling it out of the crashybeachwaves. Owie. Its been 5 days and doesn’t feel any better. I’m fine, really! Just cant bend over or take any deep breaths, otherwise I’m a happy camper with a freezer full of yellowtail and grouper that is oh so yummy!
P.S. Advil is my friend.
This is me with teh porpoises! Pretty much one of the highlights of my life, right there.
Welcome home, Cali!
I’m glad y’all had such a good time in Bahia de Los Angeles.
Cool on you, Cali!
Headline of the day: FBI Declines to Finger Hillary.
Glad you had a good time; hope you heal quickly. (I’m jealous you got to swim with porpoises.)

Just damn! Went to bed at 3 am and was awakened at 4:30 by intense pain in my right kidney. Went to ER and was treated for kidney stone. Actually glad it was not something more serious.
I’d insert a kidney stone joke at this point, but the thought is too painful. I hope the doc’s treatment works wonders and that you don’t experience any more problems from the stones or their passage.
Thank you, Paddy. The pain this morning was close to the limit I could stand, as bad as the heart attack at it’s worst, but they gave me drugs in an IV and that helped a lot. I was worried I might have failure because of the drugs I am taking and did not even think of kidney stones, though my brother had them. I was relieved when I heard them mention it.
Painful as it was and costing almost 2K, it was better than what I feared. I have had little pain since coming home and have not taken the pain meds or anti-nausea pills as I have not needed them. They gave me a prescription for an anti-inflammatory drug to ease passage and I did take that.
Hoping I don’t need the rest. This was not a fun morning.
This is the third time we have gone to an emergency clinic near us and I have been very impressed. It is a very different experience from a hospital ER.
I’m glad you’re feeling better. Now stop scaring Little Mouse like that!

While I appreciate the consumer reporting…stop that!
And by “that” I mean needing to use those services.
I have a bottle of Laphroaig and I’m not afraid to use it!
Be careful, Mac, and rest up please.
