Final Thought

Nite!

Well Damn!

JJ Jackson, one of the original VJs on MTV, died yesterday at the age of 62. That would have made him 39 when MTV started. I never would have guessed him to be that old! Also, actress Mercedes McCambridge, who won an Oscar for the 1949 film “All the King’s Men” and later provided the […]

Someone Just Shoot Me

CHK has been hit with the W32/Polybot.l!irc virus, because the IT person who was removed left the admin passwords at default. Of course, computing services claim we were hit with the Nachi virus, which isn’t true. They’ve directed us to use the Stinger removal tools. Which, of course have no effect on the Polybot virus. […]

Laziness

Some people are lazy. I mean, come on. You’re off work and the best you can come up with is a post about potato chips? I expected wittiness, bon mots, humour, pictures of tits. (Well, actually, I’m quite relieved there have been no pictures of tits posted.) As someone said recently… “Ewwww! Nipples!”

The Truth Behind Jacobi’s Death

Those who know me know that I used to have a pet cat, a stray that showed up on my back step, that my ex named “Jacobi” (after Sir Derek Jacobi, the actor). When the ex and I split, he took Samuel Blue (the miniature schnauzer) and I retained Jacobi. When my first roommate moved […]

Idiots Abound

Closed-Mindedness and Bigotry is hereditary. You get it from your parents. If there ever was a question to that, read the attached, from CNN. What’s next? Banning books based on different religious beliefs? Sure, why not. With as much HATE as is in the world, shouldn’t love and happiness, between two consenting adults (even if […]

I’m Getting Bitter

I’ve said I’m keeping my distance from PoloRandy’s company computer issues. He calls me today regarding some virus attack he’s gone under, and he needs to know how to deal with it. Part of me wants to tell him to go and pay someone to do the work — after all, I’ve taken more than […]

Can we make Breathing Illegal as well?

Since there’s more and more proof that homosexuality is genetic, can we make other genetic things illegal? Like having blue eyes, or blonde hair? Or being dark skinned? Or speaking in a southern accent? Thanks to Dave for directing me to this (included in the extended entry). Personally, I think we should outlaw closed-mindedness, cross […]

Some thoughts by kids

NUDITY I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my5-year-old shout from the back seat, “Mom! That lady isn’t wearing a seat belt!” HONESTY My […]

Oldie But Goodie

Thanks to Moonglow for passing along this oldie again so I could have SOMETHING to laugh about this morning. A crusty old biker walks into a bank and says to the woman at the teller window “I want to open a damn checking account.” The astonished woman replies, “I beg your pardon, sir. I must […]

With Less Suck, Comes More Hits

I guess I should be taking a page from Bill’s blog….when he had his gaggle of guest bloggers take over, and his SUCKAGE went down to near zero, his visitations went WAY up (I’ve never had a day over 300 visits, let alone his yesterday of over 800). Though I question if I’d want my […]

Sigh.

I guess I’ll never get the Michele-a-lanche like Bill did from this post. I should count my blessings, I guess. it could always be worse.

Follow Up

To This Post. I gave the specs on a ring and its MSRP. Then I asked for comments on how much I actually got it for. Two responded. The real answer is in the extended entry.

I Can See The Light…

….on my coffeepot saying brewing is occurring. While not as liberating a beer, or as tasty as Appletinis, it’s more acceptable for work. Did everyone survive the celebrations yesterday? Bill got Punk’d. LeeAnn made appletinis and plotted the demise of a VA Official whist with Hank Hank Hank. Susie got beer on her keyboard. I […]
