Teh Squeaky Wheel
How wonderful to “see” you in yesterday’s thread.
Brenda and I are so sorry for all of your -- and BW’s -- tsuris; lots of love for you both from Larryville. And hopes you won’t be a stranger here.
For some reason, Mac’s thread pic reminds me of the bit in “The Andromeda Strain” where the town drunk tells the lab folks to, “Give him [the infant survivor] squeeze.” (A reference to the Sterno the alcoholic had been drinking.)
Hope to apply proboscis to grindstone again today and get caught-up on all of the carp I had to defer last week, thanks to HH-A HOA. Bastards.
If you know, you know:
Elena might have gotten that impression from my description of my preferred changing technique for babies, it involved the lawn and a garden hose..
Heh, Of course I know : )
Happy Tuesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Mac!
Mac -- as long as the water from the hose is warm, what’s the problem?
Hahahahahahaha…you’re not alone in preferring that technique.
Plus: extra fertilizer for that section of the lawn.
It’s not like I would wash a cat that way.
Good morning Fatwa, Paddy, and Mac.
I got nothing but bile this morning courtesy of our “leaders.”
Do you guys remember “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day”? it was a response to the killings from islamonutjobs against cartoonists who dared to draw their prophet. The idea being that if everyone did it, there would be too many infidel targets for the islamonutjobs to kill any of them. Kind of a herd immunity idea.
I was watching something on cable about another guy,this time the new Jeopardy host who I’ve never heard of, resigning and apologizing for something he said/did/wrote several years ago that made him too unclean to hold this job today. It got me thinking if everyone on social media purposely posted at least one offensive thing every five years or so it would shut down cancel culture entirely. It could be a rite of passage for the younger ones: on your fifteenth birthday, do your offensive post.
That’s a pretty good idea.
Too bad I don’t have a large social media presence. I could start a #hashtag. Maybe get it set to a specific date like maybe the date of the Charlie Hebdo murder. Give the #hashtag time to circulate and see how many people participate in the protest.
I’d probably be willing to do it, although I only have 11 twitter followers and probably half of those are dead--okay…. there I go being a pessimist again.
Speaking metaphorically, a metaphorical bullet in Biden’s metaphorical head would be metaphorically too good for that POS.
Biden spoke again today, first starting out with a bunch of bullshit about his domestic agenda before switching over to Afghanistan. My takeaway? He’s trumpeting this as the best run surrender and retreat in history and something everyone should be proud of.
Well… Time to make The Donuts soon.
Amid some kind of crazy Democrat rumor that 84″ light tubes are being phased out, (hard to believe because of their wide use), I went into work today and picked up the Company card and the company car and bought the five that they have at Ace Hardware. Just in case.
I just recently used our last one in stock, so 5 ought really to last us quite a long time. Those single contact tubes last a very long time; in fact, the ballasts go out more often than the light tubes do. That’s what i remember from when I worked at a large retail establishment.
That’s been some decades now though, so who knows, the ballasts may be better than they used to be… (or worse, even)
It’s once again time tomorrow to go to Flagstaff for Harper’s treatment. So I’m going to make a concerted effort to get through The Big Route without dilly dallying at all, so i can get some quality sleep before we have to go.
It sure was nice to see Rabbit again. At least it’s now proven that pessimists are not always right.
Good luck on the route tonight and good luck tomorrow, Miss Harper.
Coming from a long line of pessimists, it’s good to be proven wrong sometimes, but it also shows that you got friends here -- i bet everyone of us reached out to Rabbit in some form after you asked about her.
