Teh Squeaky Wheel
Indeed we are -- has anyone heard from her?
Good morning, GN!
Sunday greetin’s, Wheelizens!
Seconding Sven’s query; neither LambiePieK nor I have heard from her for ages. Hope she and BW are well.
Titan made a very nice post about us and our visit on Facebook and on Linkedin. OMG. A lot of response. So many people credit Titan with inspiring or helping them, so when he goes on I get a lot of attention.
Attention which, one suspects, makes you a little antsy but is also -- IMHO -- well-deserved, Mac.
Also think you ought to consider changing your display name to “Manual Machining Beast”. (You haz titanium business card to prove it.)
That was rather a softball, wasn’t it?
ICWYDT but do not concur; the risk you took required these:
Why would Mac need Ben Wa balls?
Last night I watched part of the Raiders-Rams game -- it was played at the Rams’ Sofi Stadium in LA and LA has a mask mandate for large outdoor events. From the few crowd scenes I saw, no one was masked up and yet no one is talking about this superspreader event this morning.
I may start taking this mask bullshit seriously when you start acting like it’s serious.
A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven, and Mac!
I third the sentiments in re RabBiT and BW.
Mac -- the praise of your work is well deserved!
Off to church. C’yall laterz!
D’you reckon if I dress up like a Taliban, the USGOV will give me free guns, ammo, RPGs, MRAPs and drones? 👿
It’s worth a try.
Taking a work break -- watching Joe Biden stumble his way through another address -- got to make this pissant storm on the east coast into a major disaster so that he can get a win. It’s weather.
It’s empathy Joe; compassionate Joe.
What a cocksucker.
He loves that “decided to end the war and bring the troops home” strawman. It’s not a question of bringing the troops home -- it’s how you are doing it, asshole.
I do wonder what drugs are pumping through his system right now -- he’s kind of lucid.
I didn’t realize he was given another script to read today.
Yeah, let’s ignore the failure in Afghanistan and give Joey Soft-Serve a participation trophy for hurricane Henri.
Rabbit. Last comment she made here she was going on a trip. But I worry because both her and breadwinner were having some serious health problems.
Here’s a reminder of one of her funny sock puppets.
She had another blog with that character Nedra Z also, but this is the one I found, from 2006. The particular blog linked in the profile has no posts.
Her other blog seems to have been appropriated by some entity that absorbs abandoned blogs. There’s probably some kind of rule of how long inactive it must be to have that happen. But this one and others on the list seem to start posting only pictures of cars around 2018 or so.
Any posts that Rabbit had on that blog are gone although you can probably see them using the wayback machine.
correction, there are no posts of Rabbit’s left there. Teh daily Squeak is still sitting up there, seemingly undisturbed.
as is the original “don’t hire Deb” blog.
Does anyone have a Rabbit contact #/email? I have an address for her in Texas, but that’s like 5 years old.
I’ve emailed her there also, but never heard back.
Well then we’re going to just have to hunt her down.
How would we go about doing that? Maybe Email Mac.
I guess it would be nice to know what happened. Rabbit was most beloved here. I have such warm memories of here, before I ever got on the wheel, Harper would share some of your posts and comments with me, and I remember Rabbit’s comments fondly. Many anecdotes.
I brought this up a while back but maybe via email. I can’t remember.
I was so happy when Harper became active in running the old site. I was so impressed with her work and diligence back then. I believe it helped her with her courage in order to go back to work, which she did, before her M.S. diagnosis.
Anyway, I remember so many from those days. I didn’t post a lot, but I read often and had funny highlights read to me.
I have a couple of old email addys -- I can try them and maybe drop her a note to her real world address.
I don’t remember the last time she was active here, but I have a nagging memory that it was around an election year that she was taking a break because of some comments here…?
I found two email addys for her and sent off an email to her -- they haven’t bounced back yet.
I’m making some more plain scones. I don’t have any more Crasins which seems to be the only filling that Harper likes these days.
Speaking of Ben Wa balls, Mrs Sven had a boss that gave her a set for Christmas. When she asked him what the hell she was supposed to do with them, he was taken aback and said they were for stress relief -- you roll them around in your hand.
It was quite funny.
Just don’t steal the strawberry ice cream.
Andy Ngo is keeping with the riot reports coming out of Portland tonight -- just another night up there.
The Chargers are playing tonight in LA’s Sofi Stadium -- no one is masked, just like last night for Raiders/Rams. I wonder what type of fans will be levied against the stadium for allowing this to happen, if arrests will be made, and if they will shut the business down. If it was a church or bar, they would.
This is the last time we heard from Rabbit:
Thanks for finding that, dv8.
makes me think that if something happened, it happened to both of them on that trip, otherwise, we would probably have heard something.
I went a few posts ahead and saw that it was Rabbit’s birthday week. Makes me tear up a bit. I hope I’m wrong, but …
