From experience, this is all true:

And I’m enjoying the imploding conflagration 😉

    so true about “socialist utopia” of Scandinavia. Except they keep forgetting to mention that they can drill for their own oil, and their high tax rates.

    Newt in Iowa on Lincoln-Douglas style debates with Obama: “I’d let Obama have a teleprompter… y’know, just to be fair.”

    Heh, good one, Newt!

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!

    That was awesome!

    I’m thinking Newt is going to be at least in a Cabinet position in 2012.

    That map can’t be right.

    There is no “creeping sharia” staining all parts of it…

  11. LC Aggie Sith October 24, 2011 at 12:06 pm #

    I’m guessing that’s where the “War???” plays in, BisW.

    I’m happy that our Commander-In-Chief is excited about the explosion of sharia law in the Middle East. What’s the worst that could happen?

    This is completely OT, but I hope you guys don’t mind:

    I got a call from DD#3 today – she was in tears; she hasn’t been attending classes at college, it isn’t what she wants to do, she’s flunking out (it happens when you don’t attend class), the school is telling her that she won’t be able to return, she’s convinced that she wants to marry some kid from London (they’ve already exchanged rings) and move to England.

    No, I’m not kidding.

    Yes, I’m freaking out…..

  15. LC Aggie Sith October 24, 2011 at 4:04 pm #

    Teresa, that’s a weird WTF right there!

    She’s only been there half a semester, right?? Tell her to come home, clear her head, and gather her wits before she makes any sort of commitment to a tea sippin’ furner.

    I mean, shiiiiiiiiiit….

    The REALLY bad thing is that they “know” each other from skyping for the past year or so; he is IN NEW YORK right now – he came over just to visit her.

    The way she’s talking sounds exactly like I did when I met Mr. TiFW; that’s what scares me. The kid WANTS to meet us (Sarah suggested we Skype – HE said, no, we need to meet in person when we meet the first time), and he WANTS to get married, have kids, raise a family, the whole 9 yards.

    AAAAGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

    I cannot attest to time being an equalizer in a relationship. My aunt dated her hubby of 48 years for two weeks before she eloped (God rest him). In turn, my uncle dated his ex for five years before marrying her. I also know of three very loving couples who met through online dating.

    Is he willing to talk to y’all in person, without her there? Is he willing to put forth a plan? Does he have a job, a place, plans for visas, marriage license (very different there), etc?

    The truth is, this is a HUGE ordeal legally, and if DD#3 can’t seem to do well in school, she may have problems with the logistics involved in a marriage without the benefit of citizenship or residency status.

  18. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX October 24, 2011 at 4:55 pm #

    Mr. TiFW and I only knew each other for 2 weeks before we committed to each other, so I know that it can happen “in the blink of an eye”.

    And she’s already looking for jobs in the FTW area, and has already looked to see what the requirements are for a Visa/citizenship, etc. over in England.

    His mother doesn’t know about it yet, so THAT could be interesting….

    And yes, he wants very much to meet us in person, so we’ll see what happens with that; he’s talking about coming back over at Christmas time to spend time with our family.

    I just needed to talk to SOMEBODY about this; my parents would freak out if I told them about it….

  19. Jay in Ames October 24, 2011 at 5:01 pm #

    I have nothing to add, TiFW. Maybe the guy is legit.

  20. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX October 24, 2011 at 5:20 pm #

    He didn’t flinch the other day when I mentioned that Mr. TiFW had finally gotten the Glock that he ordered….

  21. roamingfirehydrant October 24, 2011 at 5:29 pm #

    I was going to offer my Remington, but a Glock will do.

  22. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX October 24, 2011 at 5:43 pm #

    Between your Remington, Aggie’s machete, and Mr. TiFW’s Glock, I guess we can see if this kid is serious, huh?

  23. LC Aggie Sith October 24, 2011 at 6:05 pm #

    You have our arsenal at your disposal, Teresa.

  24. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX October 24, 2011 at 6:29 pm #

    *sniffs*

    Thanks, guys!

    And I know that if we need it, Dick lives close enough that we can use one of his disposal sites IYKWIMAITTYD….. 😛

    They don’t mention how to deal with this in any of those baby books that you get that first year…..

  25. LC Aggie Sith October 24, 2011 at 6:42 pm #

    And that is why I only used those books to prop the table 😉

    I cannot attest to time being an equalizer in a relationship. My aunt dated her hubby of 48 years for two weeks before she eloped (God rest him). In turn, my uncle dated his ex for five years before marrying her.

    I have to wonder if your uncle just decided it was the thing to do. My former boss decided it was time he should marry, so he pretty much proposed to the first woman that he thought would do. They are still married after 15 years, but he goes his way, and she goes hers.

    My parents’ first date was December 7, they married 24 days later on New Year’s Eve, and stayed married for 43 years. Either it must be nice to know that strongly right away or they just learned how to get along.

  27. LC Aggie Sith October 24, 2011 at 8:10 pm #

    he pretty much proposed to the first woman that he thought would do.

    Actually, that was my great-grandfather, when Spain declared war on the US and he decided to walk off the ship docked in San Juan, and marry the first woman he saw. She was ten years his senior, resigned to be a spinster, and from all accounts, they had a good marriage. Weird, huh?? 🙂

    Sometimes I think it was simpler when roles were not as nebulous as they are now (so-called “gender roles”, feminism, etc).

    😦 How sad….
    I’ve often said that you can be lonelier if you are with someone you don’t really love than if you are just alone….

    Talked to DD#3 just now – she agreed to try and salvage SOMETHING of this semester (she has an appt. with her adviser tomorrow); she decided she doesn’t want to leave if she can work something out.

    It’s times like this that I wish I drank….

    On a lighter note, here’s your cute for the day:

    Nice. With the copper bowl, if you whip it hard enough, you’ll get stiff peaks for a meringue.

    J’Ames, you bastich!

  32. Jay in Ames October 24, 2011 at 8:52 pm #

    Yeah, but I’ll bet I got a little bitty smile out of that one.

  33. LC Aggie Sith October 24, 2011 at 8:54 pm #

    Actually, I was cussing you out because I was laughing so hard I was choking.

    Mr. TiFW is coming home to peel me off of the ceiling now.

    On a happier note, Rebecca’s teacher reports that she has been “working on helping her friends remember it is their turn without being bossy”, and “working on not pulling on people when she wants their attention”.

    So we’ve got that going for us…..

  35. LC Aggie Sith October 24, 2011 at 9:14 pm #

    That’s great news, Teresa.

    Remember to have something soft to land on when Hubby peels you off that ceiling.

    G’night, everyone – thanks for letting me rant, and for listening to me!

    You’re the best ♥♥♥
