Enjoy this non-work friendly, non-feminist friendly piece of humour.

Final Thought Is Back!

Nite everyone! We’ll blog tomorrow. Life is getting better.

Conditions are Right

Well, Jim Howell called me at 9:22 this evening and will be out to look at the place tomorrow. That’s quite a relief, actually, because now I don’t have to go postal. 🙂 It also means I can get my water heater and furnace looked at sooner. That makes me REALLY happy. Tonight Tink and […]

Evil Glenn’s spawn?

I have a friend that is looking for a good home for a very special dog. He said it is really lovable, smart, and great with kids, but his wife says the dog makes her nervous when it stares at her & she wants it out of the house immediately. If anyone is interested, please […]

Well, the water heater is shot

Gotta love the insurance company though. “If it can be repaired, it needs to be repaired instead of replaced.” Hello! It’s been under water for 12 days. How much good do you think it is now? That, and the fact that if I have to have it replaced, they want me to hold on to […]

Time for a drink

It’s been 12 days since my last drink. Do I miss it? No. But I’m going to have a vodka on the rocks tonight. It’s the least I can do for myself. 🙂 Here’s to you, Tink, and to you, PoloRandy, and even you, my true, blue Roxette Bunny™. Looks like we made it.

Almost 2 weeks later

after Isabel. Still no contact from my insurance adjuster. I’ve called, I’ve paged. I waited until Monday of last week to call; I posted it online last week. I know the guy’s name is supposedly Jim Howell, but haven’t had contact. I have to have my furnace and water heater replaced. They’re not going to […]

Price Gouging

$20 for a bag of ice? $3 for a gallon of gas? $6 for a gallon of milk? Yes, all this an more happened in the wake of Hurricane Isabel. As Bill (from the currently Defunct Bloviating Inanities) reported, two of his office mates grabbed chainsaws and made $17K in a day cutting up trees. […]

Chik-Fil-A ain’t what it used to be

or maybe I’m just longing for a home cooked meal. Well, tonight I get a home cooked meal. I know this because I’m cooking it. 🙂

Do as I Say, Not As I Do?

Absinthe & Cookies (a little bit bitter, a little bit sweet): When The Tables Are Turned Read, and then shake your head. Get angry. It’s ok. Political Correctness has gone to far. Why can we have a Miss Black America but not a Miss White America? Why is a United Negro College Fund legal while […]

My vote for best new Blog

Here’s my vote for the New Blog Showcase. Trey Givens, simply because he’s blunt and honest.

Chain LINK Fence

Revog gives us a test. Tink is thankful but has a question to dye for. Roxette Bunny™ makes fun of Dolly Parton. Bill at Bloviating Inanities is down, but not out (we hope). Dawn talks Roxette’s language. Mookie gives us a lesson in space. Ted discusses commercials. So does LeeAnn. Susie hasn’t have a new […]

Think the old farts will understand this, too?

With 62 Million Americans participating in file sharing online, the statement of the past month regarding the Do-Not-Call list “50 Million Americans can’t be wrong”… well… the Associated Press reports: LimeWire and other file-sharing companies have announced a new trade group, P2P United, to urge Congress to approve compulsory licenses for music files, which would […]

So, what would you do?

The last 12 days without power, internet, phone, etc. has given me lots of time to think. Yes, it’s nice that a friend loand me their place to crash where I had some sanity, but what if this was a way of life? When I was younger, not having power or electricity was an inconvenience, […]

Bill’s been Bad!

I go out (no, not GOUT) to check on the blogsphere, and what do I find? Bloviating Inanities has been canceled. Pay your damn bill, Bill, and get the humour flowing again.

What a difference a Day makes!

Just to know that tonight I’ll be sleeping in my own bed…. with power, and internet, and all. It was such a pleasure to go home last night and click on the circuit breakers to find … I HAD POWER! The pumps did their thing and the basement was drained in about an hour. Of […]

POWER!!!!!

Power to the meek, Power to speak, I’ve got the power within me, Power to the shine in my worn out shoes, yeah, Power, to me, Power to you….* After 12 long days, we finally have power back. No word on the insurance company yet, however. (That pisses me a bit off, but still!!!!! Water […]

Interestingly Enough

Remember I posted earlier today about someone warning me not to file a claim for my water heater and furnace which were destroyed, along with my missing siding and roof? From today’s (9/29/03) edition of the Virginian Pilot: Advice: Think twice before you file claim for cost of spoiled food The Virginian-Pilot September 29, […]

The Source of what Ails Bill

Hit & Run: Fat City Tim C. lists the one disaase meat-eaters are vunerable to….the one thing Bill C. has. GOUT. Take solace, Bill, in knowing that your disease is caused by living the good life.

Today’s Overlooked Muscial Group

Is…(surprise) BAD BOYS BLUE. Their official site is here. The one album missing from their discography is the US release of “Bad Boys Blue” which was a compilation of tracks from their European releases “Totally”, “The Fifth”, “Kiss”, “Love Is No Crime”, and “House of Silence”. I won’t repeat what’s on their official site, but…two […]

Necessary Rant – I’m TIRED.

Sorry, but I have to get this out. (1) I’m tired of not being able to sleep in my own bed. (2) I’m tired of not being able to blog from home. (3) I’m tired of not having electricity. (4) I’m tired of my insurance company USAA always dropping the ball. (5) I’m tired of […]
