Be There or Be…someplace else

Tuesday, May 30th, 2006

Announcement: Everyone within the sound of my voice is invited to my house on Saturday afternoon, June 10 for a sort of “Farewell, House” cookout. We’ll bid adeiu to the dear old place, and hopefully shout obscenities over the fence at Crack Monkey. Of course I look forward to seeing you all, but I’ll admit […]

Back in the World

Monday, May 29th, 2006

Sorry about the long absense. I was around Thursday and Friday, but I had to go in to the office *puke* to work, and I had no net access there, because the tech support people in that building are a bunch of fuckheads. Then over the weekend, BW and I went away to Deepest Pennsyltucky! […]

If Clive’s Selling, I’m Buying

Thursday, May 25th, 2006

These will be some ads that I look FORWARD to seeing! After Lizzie and Uma, the new face of Lancome is…Clive Owen? By CAROLINE GRAHAM and SHARON CHURCHER, The Mail on Sunday 09:04am 21st May 2006 He’s the epitome of firm-jawed ruggedness, an actor as renowned for his smouldering looks as his tough-guy roles. So […]

Better Living Through Chemistry

Wednesday, May 24th, 2006

Recently, I bought a Jan. 1966 issue of “Life” magazine for an article about Truman Capote, and there was an extra bonus find of this fabulous ad that I just have to share with y’all. Meet Edna That’s the Before. Click below for the After Edna!

My Actual Problem

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2006

cheryl took the free personality test! “Needs to feel identified with someone or something…” Click here to read the rest of the results. Or else, I’ll just give you some highlights: “Feels that things stand in her way, that circumstances are forcing her to compromise and forgo some pleasures for the time being.” Word. […]

Jesus H Christ!

Monday, May 22nd, 2006

And the H stands for, “How long is this movie?!?” Went to see DaVinci Code yesterday out of sheer boredom with the movie scene. What a very silly story. I’m glad I didn’t read the book, or I would have been chucking it across the room and stomping on it in frustration. You really, really […]

I Love the 80′s Drive-By Hotting: Goth Geek Edition

Friday, May 19th, 2006

This topic went over pretty well last time, so I think I’ll just keep doing these regularly until I get bored or run out of 80′s Hotties. Now I want to clarify, most of these people are still hot today. I’m not dissing them. It’s just that they reached their peak hotness during the 80′s, […]

A Reminder from TarsierJungle

Tuesday, May 16th, 2006

Though I hate him more than almost any human on the planet, I have to thank Tom Cruise for one thing. Since being cast in Mi:3, JRM is all the hell over the print media this month! End of last week, my new issue of Premiere arrived…with Tom “It–The Horror From Beyond Space!” Cruise on […]

Housing Update

Monday, May 15th, 2006

Just a brief status report for those who are following along. On Thursday, we had our home inspection of the place we put an offer on. Predictably, it turned up more things that will need work than we’d thought. Examples: the roof on the very back and front parts of the house is shot and […]

Just Like Heaven

Thursday, May 11th, 2006

This is a riff off of a conversation Loup and I were having yesterday about “what heaven should be like.” She posted to her page yesterday, wanted to know other folks’ opinions, so here’s mine. Like Loupy, I agree that the gates of Heaven will look just like the gates of Graceland. Except just outside […]

I Love the 80′s Drive-By Hotting

Wednesday, May 10th, 2006

Who can ever forget the completely insane hotness of 1987 Bono? Gaze upon THIS! Dear Jeezus Gawd. The mind reels. And then there was this, which appeared in a 1987 issue of Rolling Stone. How I could kill myself for not stealing that issue from my sister-in-law when I had the chance. I think it’s […]

All Hands on Deck

Tuesday, May 9th, 2006

Since yesterday’s post, I’ve gotten lots of emails and IMs asking when we’re moving, plus offers of help. First off, THANKS for offering! Of course we need help, all we can get. We’re hiring movers to deal with our furniture, but we’ll still need help for dealing with all of our boxes (about 30 boxes […]

We Have a Winner!

Monday, May 8th, 2006

Meine Damen und Herren…we have a house! And no, it is not “Dream House”, but it is “Quite Good” house. Some background.. Tuesday last week we actually had papers drawn up to make an offer on Dream House. We didn’t make the offer right away but took the papers home to look over. Well. Turns […]

Genius is Sexy

Saturday, May 6th, 2006

Happy Birthday, Orson! You, sir, are God. Lest you think I am being some sort of Elvis heretic, let me state that I’m very much a pagan, and believe in multiple deities. Orson is a god to me, or at least an immortal demi-god along the lines of Hercules. And just like Herc, Orsie achieved […]

Whew, Yinz Guys!

16 Years in Pittsburgh apparently hasn’t completely rotted my English-speaking capabilites yet! W00t! Your Linguistic Profile: 75% General American English 10% Yankee 5% Dixie 5% Midwestern 5% Upper Midwestern What Kind of American English Do You Speak?

Thanks to Haley for this pic: Damn, how true it is! Time to pick your sides and choose your citizenship! I know where my loyalties lie, and I am ready to kill for my country. When’s the Civil War starting? Bring it, Bushite Bible-Bitches!! I am against guns, but in this case, I can’t WAIT […]

I’m having a Lucy moment

Tuesday, May 2nd, 2006

I’ll assume that most of you out there are NOT freaks like me and Whistler, and do NOT have all the dialog from A Charlie Brown Christmas committed to memory. So, who remembers this lovely exchange?: Lucy: Every Christmas it’s the same. All I get is a bunch of stupid dolls and toys. I never […]

I got a surprise call from Loup yesterday afternoon telling me that…she got her Dream Car! What exciting news, but I don’t want to spoil her fun, you can read about it on her site. I just wanted to say “congrats” and “wow”! I envy you guys your impulse-buying powers.
