Some funneh for the day

20 Jul

We needed a new poat.

and I had a couple of things stashed for new poat fodder.

I also saw Harry Potter last night.  It was good.

Poat ready to defile with obscene comments!  Y’all have a good day.

Important update! It’s hot outside!

It's hot out!

    It’s hot and steamy. Good for some things, but going outside is not one of them.

    It’s not a life, Aggie. It’s called driving my son to weights every morning

    Next month, it gets even crazier.

  17. Jay in Ames July 20, 2011 at 10:52 am #

    Football Car in? Or soccer?

    I remember those days. Weights in the morning, haul haybales the rest of the day, maybe bean walking. Oh the days when I could handle hot weather.

  18. LC Aggie Sith July 20, 2011 at 10:55 am #

    Good workout this a.m. The wimmens went to some fancy stitching store in Reading. The “real feel” temp is currently 103F. YAY!

  22. Car in July 20, 2011 at 11:48 am #

    Football for my oldest. Next one (15 y/o) plays soccer. Then the last two as well – they play on a travel team. My 15 y/o plays for the high school, but they’ve got a pre-season indoor league going. OYe.

  23. Car in July 20, 2011 at 11:49 am #

    Reading is where my husband grew up. We visited there and saw the old houses, etc, when we were vacationing there last summer.

  24. Car in July 20, 2011 at 11:49 am #

    I’ve got to run inside today. Ugh. I hate the treadmill

  25. MCPO Airdale July 20, 2011 at 11:51 am #

    Carin – Did my workout inside. The air outside is foul today, plus the heat. I like Reading, but parts of the city have been overrun with ilegales.

  26. Car in July 20, 2011 at 11:57 am #

    It’s very muggy outside. And temps are too high. They media is making a bigger deal out of it, it’s not Heatageddon or anything.

  27. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere July 20, 2011 at 12:01 pm #

    Its a little sticky here today, but it isn’t hot. Thank God.

  28. MCPO Airdale July 20, 2011 at 12:02 pm #

    Who is gonna make me a sammich?

  29. Dick July 20, 2011 at 12:03 pm #

    For everybody who’s stuck with some freakish heat, I’d like to welcome all you folks to Texas in the Summertime.

  30. Dick July 20, 2011 at 12:06 pm #

    Who is gonna make me a sammich?

    Ha! Rots o’ruck!

  31. MCPO Airdale July 20, 2011 at 12:08 pm #

    Yeah, Imma make it myself. Anybody want some lemonade & sweet tea?

  32. clintbird July 20, 2011 at 12:13 pm #

    Dick, perhaps surprisingly to some, here in OP where I live, we often have the exact or nearly exact same weather/heat as Texas, plus Texas in kind enough to send us mild weather in the winter if we behave ourselves.

  33. clintbird July 20, 2011 at 12:13 pm #

    in = is

  34. Dick July 20, 2011 at 12:21 pm #

    You’ll know ya have the same weather as Northeast Texas when it hits 103 degrees in late September on a regular basis.

  43. Dick July 20, 2011 at 1:22 pm #

    Honestly, who doesn’t like some tomato juice and a splash of Drano in their beer?

    Valid point. I like my tequila with a Drano chaser.

  44. Dick July 20, 2011 at 1:25 pm #

    I know it’s probably completely wrong, but I just microwaved three eggs for a yummy scrambled egg sammich.

  45. Jewstin July 20, 2011 at 1:35 pm #

    . . . egg sammich.

    Sprinkle some Liquid Plumr on there, it really spices things up.

    Aggie, what’s the rank for Hausfrau/Machete Killer?

    For me, O-10. Because I’m worth it.

  49. MCPO Airdale July 20, 2011 at 2:39 pm #

    3 Hour wait!? Holy Crap! What’s the deal? I got Herself a new dependent ID and it took all of 15 minutes!

  50. LC Aggie Sith July 20, 2011 at 2:45 pm #

    At Randolph, active duty have priority, followed by retirees, followed by dependents with children, followed by dependents.

    I arrived at 10 AM, right when active duty tend to do their errands on base. On top of that, the people who work there take their lunch at around 11 am, so it’s a skeleton crew for a while.

  51. MCPO Airdale July 20, 2011 at 2:58 pm #

    Aggie – We have the same priority system on Post here. We went at 8:30 a.m.

  52. LC Aggie Sith July 20, 2011 at 3:01 pm #

    And there you go. But at 8:30, the lines to get on base are about 45 mins long.

  53. Dick July 20, 2011 at 3:03 pm #

    Grrr….

    I’m trying to make a gravemarker for Kelly’s kitty, Fred, and can’t find decent letter outline thingies for shit.

    I need ’em already cut out Jay. I can carve the stone, no sweat, and even make it look good, but I gotta be able to draw the lettering on it.

    I’d pay money to see Olbermann interview West.

  58. Dick July 20, 2011 at 3:33 pm #

    Keith Olbermann needs to be beaten until he’s unconscious, or less stupid. Whichever comes first.

  59. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX July 20, 2011 at 3:35 pm #

    Psssst…..We hit the Debt Ceiling on May 16th…..

    Washington hit its debt ceiling on May 16 and has used spending and accounting adjustments, as well as higher-than-expected tax receipts, to continue operating normally

    A cynical person might begin to think that maybe a less-than-scrupulous person would go so far as to scare little old ladies into thinking that they might not have enough money to buy food and pay their bills by announcing that the money won’t be there unless somebody does something RIGHT NOW, and by golly, he’s going to be the one to swoop in and save the day.

  60. Dick July 20, 2011 at 3:45 pm #

    Let’em go bankrupt.

  61. MCPO Airdale July 20, 2011 at 3:48 pm #

    Olbermann is a pussy. A mewling pussy in proximity to real men.

  63. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere July 20, 2011 at 3:51 pm #

    Well, I just fired off a salvo toward a FB friend and member of the Mornon Confederacy who thinks McConnell’s plan is the only one that makes sense.

    What’s several trillinons more on the backs of my kids and grandkids? It isn’t like the credit rating agencies won’t look at the insane, unbudgeted debt and say “You know, it doesn’t make any sense to the the crack addict come back to the… corner every day to get a little deeper into you.”, right?

    At least the Republicans get to point the finger at the Dems (which is all that really seems to matter)…not that anyone will actually report it that way, or the kool aid drinkers will be able to process it correctly in their cranial-rectal Obama worship centers if by some fantastic miracle, it is actually reported correctly. At least the Republicans will be able to point their fingers.

    BTW, I’m not looking for a fight on this. I’ve read the numerous postings, from you, from Bob, from others. I’m just not convinced that capitulation with blame is the answer.

  69. MCPO Airdale July 20, 2011 at 4:18 pm #

    Dick – I find it delightful that Alabama is still keeping their heritage alive. Especially as it will have the race-baiters in Atlanta screaming.

  70. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere July 20, 2011 at 4:22 pm #

    Nahhh, they’ve been pretty strong in maintaining that it’s McConnell’s way, or we’re all fucked, cause default means interest rates soar, and we’ll become a third world country.

    My follow up to a mild “I know this sucks, but the alternative sucks worse” response:

    *****, I get it. I do. But if this doesn’t drive home the need for a BBA with the players themselves, then NOTHING will. If you’re going to give the Fresh Prez of Bill Ayers the opportunity to spend more money, WITHOUT THERE EVEN BEING A BUDGET, then you might as well send Congress home now. And your wallet? Just hand it over. All your money belongs to them, to buy as many votes as they want. Maybe, just maybe, you might even be luicky enough that they want to buy YOUR vote, too, and then you might see a return of .10 or .15 cents on every dollar you earn.

    And until there is a budget, they have no business seeking a single penny in new taxes, even if it is Obama taking back that private jet loophole he found so stimulating intially. Budget FIRST. No budget, no new money. And then when Lord Zero decides that joyrides on Air Force One,and parties at the White House, and money for his pet projects are more important than paying interest on the debt, Granny’s monthly stipend that was so generously compelled from me, or paying soldiers who help government fulfill a stipulated duty, then let his lapdogs in the Press try to pin it on anyone else. Unless Fancy Feast is cheaper than tuna, and tastier too, sooner or later, Ganny and Grampy will figure it out.

    I need to get back to work. I have a problem to resolve by the end of the day.

  104. Guy S July 20, 2011 at 9:57 pm #

    Teresa,

    Ya wanna know something really profound? I thought ol Shep was a bit of a condescending, stuck on himself a little too much, self righteous prig. And couldn’t stand him all that much…long before the gay thing surfaced. In fact, dare I say it, his being gay does nothing to change my opinion of him one way or the other.

  105. Dick July 20, 2011 at 10:00 pm #

    I could see Shep as a Catcher.

    That’s ok. They are looking for you, Big Boy.

    Aggs just doesn’t know ffffaaaaaaaaaaabbbbbbbulous when she sees it.

    I do where my shoes and corsets are concerned!!!

    And I don’t think I’ve ever heard of Bamapachyderm until now. Nice nic.

    Where did everybody go???

    Did Dick eat a big bowl of chili and wash it down with some beer before he sat down in here?

    I didn’t know Shep is gay but I did know he’s a libtard.

    Aggie: The principle at “My Vast Right Wing Conspiracy”.

    She stopped blogging a while ago.

  120. LC Aggie Sith July 20, 2011 at 10:30 pm #

    Ah, ok.

    I forget how faaaaaaaaaabbbbbbbbulously popular you are, BisW 😉

    I didn’t know Shep is gay but I did know he’s a libtard.

    Captain Obvious.

    He could be anyone.

    I forget how faaaaaaaaaabbbbbbbbulously popular you are, BisW

    *looks around to see who Aggs is calling popular*

    I excell at pissing people off. With some of them, I don’t even have to try. Not exactly How To Win Friends And Influence People.

  123. LC Aggie Sith July 20, 2011 at 10:36 pm #

    That was a stupid book, BisW. Consider yourself lucky 😉

  124. Dick July 20, 2011 at 10:38 pm #

    Fucking Liberals… They should all be shot, dead.
    This goddamned country’s going to hell and the only fucking way we’re gonna be able to save it is to go to war.

    You know it just as I do, but you won’t fucking admit it.

  125. MCPO Airdale July 20, 2011 at 10:40 pm #

    BisW – I hope you mentioned that the corporations that didn’t pay taxes are the ones in bed with Teh iWon!

  126. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere July 20, 2011 at 10:40 pm #

    Aggie, I’m lucky that my wife hasn’t killed me in my sleep yet.

    And I’m lucky that my kids haven’t realized yet that I’m an asshole.

    And I’m a incredibly lucky that I still have a job.

  127. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere July 20, 2011 at 10:43 pm #

    Chief, I asked her if she has ever even seen a corporate tax return, and how it was that she concluded that “many” corporations don’t pay takes.

  128. LC Aggie Sith July 20, 2011 at 10:49 pm #

    I think it’s coming, Dick. and have said so.

    I am not going to fire first, though. No fucking way am I going to set them up as victims.

  129. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere July 20, 2011 at 10:52 pm #

    I am not going to fire first, though. No fucking way am I going to set them up as victims.

    Ditto. It is going to ugly enough without that too.

  130. Dick July 20, 2011 at 10:56 pm #

    I’ll be more than happy to slit a throat first, and conveniently make it look as a simple assault, or robbery.

    Funny, I’ve never hated an enemy before.

    Whew! I thought the after effects of those beans I had for dinner might have driven everyone off…

    The best result from the power being knocked out here for a week was that I saw the weaknesses in my emergency plan. I hope to be more prepared when (if?) the balloon goes up, because I want to make damn sure my family is okay.

  133. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere July 20, 2011 at 11:02 pm #

    “Hate” implies that I care what happens to them. Once they are out of my life (literally), I promise I’ll never give them another thought.

  134. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere July 20, 2011 at 11:04 pm #

    Water.

    Guns and ammo.

    Knives.

    Water.

    Antibiotics.

    Spits to turn the libs on.

    What? We gotta have some protein.

  135. LC Aggie Sith July 20, 2011 at 11:15 pm #

    Liberal on a spit?? I have standards, BisW.

    There’s always possum and other assorted roadkill.

  136. roamingfirehydrant July 20, 2011 at 11:18 pm #

    Gasoline.

    A better non-electric can opener. (yes, you have knives, just sayin’)

    Some of the flashlights you can just shake rather than worry about batteries.

    A radio, so you know what the hell is going on.

    A bug-out bag.

  137. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere July 20, 2011 at 11:30 pm #

    Got batteries, a crank lantern and two crank flashlights.

    Two battery powered lanterns too. They have been useful.

    Mo Brooks is my rep. I thought he was kind of a tool when he was running, but anyone would be better than Parker Griffith. I was very proud of him today.

  139. Jay in Ames July 20, 2011 at 11:37 pm #

    I always like when a smug reporter gets smacked in the face with the facts.

  140. Jay in Ames July 20, 2011 at 11:38 pm #

    I saw a crank flashlight with a USB outlet, for charging a phone.

    Seemed kinda handy.

  141. MCPO Airdale July 20, 2011 at 11:50 pm #

    a deep-cranking marine battery and an inverter works. Just keep the battery on a trickle charger until you need it.

  142. Dick July 21, 2011 at 7:47 am #

    Roamy, we bought a 5000 watt generator for such things as running the fridge and freezer in the garage. It’s come in handy several times.
    Now I wish I spent the extra money and bought the 8000 watt version.

  143. Car in July 21, 2011 at 8:02 am #

    I’ve never cared for Shep, not because I thought he was gay, or even before his hysterics during Katrina.

    His show is BORING. It’s like news for stupid people. Stories are 15 seconds long and puddle deep.

  144. Car in July 21, 2011 at 8:17 am #

    I’ve been reading that story (linked my puppy blender) about “henry” – drug addicted son of an attachment parenting blogger who was beaten, ODed an died a month later.

    She wants “justice” for henry. I guess someone gave him the drugs and somewhat beat him up.

    But, personally, I just see it as the logical conclusion of that lifestyle. You either clean them up BEFORE this happens, or you don’t.

    It’s ironic because you have folks arguing for the end on the war on drugs, and then you read stories such as Henry’s.

    It’s like the two sides don’t even know each other.

  145. Car in July 21, 2011 at 8:23 am #

    Oh, and wakey wakey

  146. roamingfirehydrant July 21, 2011 at 8:55 am #

    Dick, we also have a 5 kW generator, thus the need for gasoline. We conserved what we had, and we could have siphoned some out of the lawnmower. People were driving an hour and a half out of the no-power zone and waiting in loooooooong lines to get gas. The gas station near the hospital that got power back first was mobbed.

  147. roamingfirehydrant July 21, 2011 at 8:56 am #

    Worky worky. Y’all have a good day.

  148. Dick July 21, 2011 at 8:57 am #

    That makes sense. I always keep ten gallons or so handy, but never have to drive far to find gas considering D/FW is so compressed and convoluted.

    New instructional poat!
