No telling what’s being thought of in the mind of a lunatic

From the files of: “How The Hell Do They Find This Comfortable?”

And here’s the close-up shot.

While I’m somewhat on this subject, I might as well mention what happened last month. Dessa (brown) and JJ (not pictured) had to have their front right fangs removed. Getting older sucks. After they had their procedures, we put them in our bedroom to recover for a few days. JJ wanted the hell out as soon as the anesthesia wore off. Dessa, on the other hand, was more than content to stay in the bedroom by herself. So we decided to try and see what would happen if we kept her in our bedroom with the door closed while we were at work.

She was happier than a pig in shit.

So now we have a water bowl, litter box, scratching mat and toy box in our room and only let the Bitch out whenever we are there to supervise; that is when we’re in the mood to hear her hiss at anything that comes within five feet of her presence. She does have to come out to eat because Max (not pictured) needs to eat in the bedroom because his diet is different than Dessa’s and JJ’s. (Bella, the White Menace, has to eat in the bathroom.)

After turning 11 in March, Dessa only has a few years left. Might as well make them as enjoyable for her (and for us) as possible. And as long as the bedroom provides several available sun spots like the one out by the living room recliner pictured above, it’s not hard to tell she prefers the “lockup.”

Rightie Rappers

So I have a Facebook page where a few of us B.S. about hip-hop from the 1980s-1990s. In this page I suggested to one of my homiez that perhaps we should form our own super group. I’ll let the screen shot speak for itself.

Of course, this conversation came just after a discussion about when we used to write our own lyrics to songs. You can figure out who’s who.

Posting An Entry Of Know-Nothing

leave a comment »

I came. I read. I LOL’d.

I thought these type of articles were going to start appearing once we got closer to this year’s mid-term elections. Guess the internal polling numbers are worse than first thought.

The Democrats may deserve to lose in November. They have been terrible at trying to explain who they stand for and the larger goal of their governance. But if they lose, it should be because their policies are unpopular or ill-conceived — not because millions of people believe a lie (that the Kenyan Koffee Fetcher is a Muslim).

Of course they’re terrible at trying to explain who they stand for and the larger goal of their governance. If they actually did attempt this, they would lose outside of major urban centers where many of their ideas “flourish.”

In the much-discussed Pew poll reporting the spike in ignorance, those who believe Obama to be Muslim say they got their information from the media. But no reputable news agency — that is, fact-based, one that corrects its errors quickly — has spread such inaccuracies.

So where is this “media?” Two sources, and they are — no surprise here — the usual suspects. The first, of course, is Rush Limbaugh…

And what’s the second? Lemme guess. KK’s Korner.

Finally, there is OMGFAUXNEWSLOL2010~!!!

No matter how serious the subject matter, it will be funny if you add the Benny Hill Theme.

Late 1980s: I waited anxiously in the mail for my Sega Master System’s Double Dragon video game arrive, and when it did I cheered.

Stephen Strasburg, Meet Tommy John

with 2 comments

Looks like it’s the summer of recovery for Stephen Strasburg.

And the autumn of recovery.

And the winter of recovery.

And the spring of recovery.

And another summer of recovery.

The young phenom pitcher faces his first major injury, and will undergo Tommy John surgery. His exact timetable is still uncertain at the moment, but he is not expected to return within a year. This means that his 2010 MLB season is over, and he will likely miss most of the 2011 season as well.

But seriously, though. That’s a bummer. Then again, at least Strasburg got his money now. Hopefully, if his arm turns out to be done, he’ll be able to invest wisely.

Sorry I’m not talking about whether or not he’ll be able to recover. I focus on life outside of sports. Strasburg can focus on the rest of his career.

Local Publication Provides A Slush(ie) Fund Full Of Content

with one comment

I’m not sure which story in the weekly community fishwrap I find more amusing.

Contestant A: The article about local schools dealing with new food guidelines set forth by The Kenyan Koffee Fetcher and Chewbacca’s Sister. Yep, I’m sure they sat up late at night in the White House going over lists of what kids can and cannot eat at government schools. Why am I talking about this story? Because of this one part.

Although surrounding districts are taking some beverages off of cafeteria shelves, Michael Marasco, director of food services for Penn-Trafford, said his district isn’t planning on making any changes.

The only beverage change comes at the elementary level, where administrators plan to remove slushie machines due to maintenance issues.

Slushie machines — for real? Oh, then then there was this.

“We’re sticking with the same concepts as last year and hoping to add some more healthy items to the menu, such as whole grain pizza and breads,” Marasco said. “We feel that we can do a lot to improve healthy options for students at Penn-Trafford.”

Whole grain pizza. Yeah. I’m sure that shit will be real healthy. I’ve looked at the nutritional information on the boxes of various “whole grain” pizzas at the store. The kids ain’t getting healthier by eating this stuff.

OK, so that was Contestant A. What’s Contestant B?

There’s a weekly police blotter this fishwrap publishes. This week there was a story about some guy the better half went to middle/high school with and had the hots for during this time. Why was this guy in the police blotter? For (allegedly) inappropriately touching an 8-year-old girl … last summer. The wheels of justice do go slowly, don’t they? Oh, and this guy is listed as a sex offender and served jail time for following two 13-year-old girls. Wha-? You can get jail time for that? Damn. I’m not advocating this sort of thing, but with all the shit my crack-whore sister-in-law and niece-in-law have done and neither one of them serving a day’s worth of hard time, following some girls around seems a bit harsh.

I’m looking better and better each day.
