Sick. Of. It.

I’m sorry, but I’ve gotten so effin tired of Democrats and Republicans bickering over differences in opinions at the cost of the average citizen. Both sides need to sit down and shut the hell up. Thanks to Republicans, the US is now running a record DEFICIT with no end in sight, and personal liberties are […]

A laff a day…

A man placed some flowers on the grave of his dearly departed mother and started back toward his car when his attention was diverted to another man kneeling at a grave. The man seemed to be praying with profound intensity and kept repeating, “Why did you have to die? Why did you have to die?” […]

On the ice blue line of insanity*

*Bonus points of you know the song this line is from It’s the end of the month, the end of the quarter, the end of the first half of 2006, the end of the Fiscal Year. It’s also the end of the week. And we have nutbuckets! CLEVELAND, Ohio (AP) — Officers who went to […]

The Friday FloorFiller™ 06-30-06

Say goodbye to June (where has the first half of the year gone?) and hello to yesteryear with this flashback to the 70’s & 80’s (ok, there were a couple remakes of that era from the 90’s that also made it into this 20 song mix) Now…get listening!

Breathing Just A Touch Easier

Even though we had the rain from hell here tonight, on top of what we’ve already received. I will say the all-new Friday FloorFiller™ was some of the best fun I’ve had in quite a while. You’ll have to come back tomorrow and check it out. It’s unlike anything I’ve done to this point; I’d […]

Picture This.

Remember “Video Killed The Radio Star”? That wasn’t the Buggles only video. One track made it onto this year’s birthday CD for me… I Am A Camera. (Originally performed by the same singer for the group “Yes” as “Into The Lens” — a rare time when the same singer performed the same song in two […]

In a pickle.

Thanks to Fritz for putting this one online. Come on. Someone afraid of pickles? Of Mustard? At least the one afraid of birds I can somewhat understand.

Flight Crews

All too rarely, airline attendants make an effort to make the in flight “safety lecture” and announcements a bit more entertaining. Here are some real examples that have been heard or reported: 1. On a Southwest flight (SW has no assigned seating, you just sit where you want) passengers were apparently having a hard time […]

Huzzah.

I’m leaving. Yep. Leaving. Taking a mini-vacation (just overnight) starting Sunday afternoon but it’s out of the area, so I’m looking forward to it.

You Ask, I Answer 6-28-06

Fritz asks: “Are you going anywhere special this summer?” Other than going to see my grandmother, I’ve a few small side trips, but nothing special. Let me rephrase that. I’m looking for ways to make my few small side trips special. There. The universe is yours to create, right? Tink asks: “Does this much rain […]

When what should be a surprise, isn’t.

It’s amazing, how people think they can say things that are spiteful and that they won’t get back to the person they’re said about. For now, that’s all I have to say on the subject.

What is the colour of Beal?

Whatever colour is it, consider me painted.

I was surprised

….with how easy Walgreen’s online photo service is. I chose which photos to upload, chose what size I wanted, and they emailed me in 40 minutes telling me my prints were ready to pick up. 23 4x6s, 3 5x6s and 1 8×10 were only $13.50. Some of ’em really did look like postcards.

Would you please SHUT THE HELL UP?

Tink and I were at lunch today and what to our ears should accost, but these two skinny heifers who were rambling on and on about everything. I mean, excuse me, do they require you to take a cow vow of silence at work so that you have to express your opinions about everything in […]

We’ve introduced a generation of idiots.

At CHK, we’re hiring for a Tech position (vacated by BBalldude). One of the requirements we put in is a Bachelor’s Degree with IT emphasis — since the person will be doing network security and administration, as well as PC install and maintenance, it seemed to be the proper thing — also approved by HR […]

Time to wake up and move.

[audio:lb.mp3] Where’s the coffee? What are your plans for the July 4th weekend? Are you unfortunate enough to have to work July 3rd? Why can’t you just say it?

The Tuesday Ten™ 06-27-06

Opposites Attract. 1. Would you rather suffer from narcolepsy or insomnia? 2. Which platform do you prefer, Apple or PC? 3. Would you rather watch a movie in the cinema or on DVD? 4. Would you rather eat in the dining room or in the restaurant? 5. Would you rather drive in the country or […]
