Very easy to do.
I appreciate the opportunity to try and connect to those who are working so hard so far from home and risking their lives in miserable conditions and convey thanks.
God Bless the Troops
Here is the link where you can see how to participate:
They did it on the Rachel Rae show.
But what if it included an open bar?
"I vas Foreign Exchange student month and half from Siberia!!!"?
Or, "My wife just stepped out for a smoke...I don't know anyone I hate these things...Oh..My wife? Uhh...Sally! You know...Sally Sommmethuu--mumblemumble...Yup. That's the girl!"
I posit this question for no reason at all whatsoever.
Well I did it!
I attended a class of 1984 reunion.
Everyone was very nice, the food was delicious and the drinks were a flowin'.
I felt so much more comfortable than if it were my own class, and now I know enough to never, ever, under any circumstance, attend my own class reunion.
I should have been less shy and more of a player. I think that before I annihilated myself there was some fertile ground;/
I was pretty toasty just getting there.
Good folks and nice fun, with a Pendy sighting bonus which made it all worth while!
Here's to the class of 1984!
(Note to self, look up kittinger's Atlantic crossing...)

I have had fantastic food and leftovers these last two days.
I am having midnight onions and the intro to those luscious New England treats were ripped off of critters formerly wandering the floor of the cold cold ocean.
Arrrghhh cranberry sauce.
I don't recommend any life which makes you a stranger to regular meals of a home cooked variety, but I can say that when wonderful food comes around it tastes like a miracle and makes you sit back while shaking your head slowly...and with great Thanks.

They seemed to think that a recent photo was published errantly and to no good end, regardless of intention.
I have put said photo behind the curtain for the moment.
I thought that it was handsome and suggestive of the best attributes of liberty and good health.
I will take the council under advisement and respond further after more thought.
Thank you Council.
(If you haven't checked this blog recently you couldn't know of what I speak. Which is fine.)
This Mallard Fillmore cartoon generated protesters and an apology from Newsday. They are calling for the editor's dismissal.
I can't participate in the conglomeration of power which political correctness conveys to liberals and grievance groups of all manner. That power being the power of our previous liberties.
It's absolutely true that I would be safer and better off by anticipating and adjusting for P.C. climate etc. That being said.
The picture stays.

Do not watch this profanity laced compilation of the Larry David program's Susie Greene (Essman.)
While it made me laugh, that says something unflattering about myself. Don't watch. via Althouse.
It reminds me of another master, and this is that time of year:
Now, I had heard that word at least ten times a day from my old man. He worked in profanity the way other artists might work in oils or clay. It was his true medium; a master

In an example I noted this morning CBS's Sunday Morning did a very brief profile of Master Knifemaker Bob Kramer.
Last year the New Yorker did a very nice and long profile of him:
"Bob Kramer is one of a hundred and twenty-two people in the world, and the only former chef, to have been certified in the U.S. as a Master Bladesmith."

To fluffy animals when they engage in serial cuteness...serial episodes of remorseless cutie-ness gets a good strangling in the frigid outdoor crapper!
This particular specimen managed to get away, this time. Only on account of the fact that when I flushed he managed to confound me through flatulant lightening along with some manner of radioactive void...but I'll get him yet:
Someone asked me today, "what color do smurfs turn when you choke them?", so you know the type of crowds with whom I spend my time. This little feller doesn't stand a chance...You don't even want to know where that porcelain leads...

As for the media disconnect on this monster's faith:
"He described Muhammad as a strong believer in Islam"...
The Times reported Thursday that Muhammad converted to Islam after he and Williams divorced. The Times quoted Williams as saying he converted to Islam 17 years ago, about the same time he joined the Army. "
"The Seattle Times also reported that federal sources told the newspaper that Muhammad and Malvo were known to speak sympathetically about the September 11 hijackers and may have been motivated by anti-American sentiment."
