Oh crap

Tuesday, September 30th, 2008

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Metallica has a new album out.  You know, the one that was supposed to return them to old metal form, the one that was produced by Rick Rubin, and Rick Rubin kicks ass, so against my own better judgment I was curious to hear it.  […]

For once I can say that’s how the weekend was. Saturday we took our annual trip to the Trax Farms fall festival for Halloween decorations (never can have too many), pumpkins, and stocking up on fall essentials like pumpkin butter, apple butter, bushels of apples, etc. And it’s the one time a year I eat […]

Groin Watch 2008

Thursday, September 25th, 2008

BW got very cheap tickets to the Penguins home exhibition game last night, and I had every intention to go.  Everybody tells me that hockey is much more enjoyable “live”, and hey, at $20 a seat, what could I lose?  If nothing else I could get some nachos out of it, and a visit to […]

Election in a Nutshell

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

Stole this quote shamelessly from a HuffPo comment post.  Succinct perfection: “The reason the elections have been so close lately is because a significant portion of the electorate are reactionary, semi-illiterate nitwits and dingbats.”

Well, I always KNEW that I’m a gay man trapped in a woman’s body, but now Science has proven it! (article stolen from The Daily Mail, UK) Women with high levels of testosterone are more attracted to masculine-looking men like James Bond actor Daniel Craig and celebrity beefcake Russell Crowe, scientists said today. Researchers at […]

The Russian Front

Friday, September 19th, 2008

hey look you guys.. Russian Mafia Guy’s house really did go up for sale!  There’s even an open house showing of it this Sunday, so c’mon over, check it out, and stop by for a visit.  Tell any and all old/quiet/childfree/gay people that you might happen to know about it. This means I need to […]

Fall is for Foodies

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

Praise Elvis, good weather is finally here!  And the one thing that good fall (and winter) weather does for me is to bring the urge to create hearty, time-consuming, and delicious meals back out of its summer dormancy.  Good-bye salads, grilled crap, cold sandwiches…that summer fare is not real food!  It’s merely subsistence-level nourishment to […]

I’m Green and I Vote

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

So I finally did it!  Last month I renewed my driver’s license, and while I was there, I changed the party affiliation on my voter registration to GREEN!  No more wussy ‘no party/independent’ for me; time to declare that I bleed pinko, baby. Not that making the change accomplishes anything.  I still can’t vote in […]

Bridal Burnout

Monday, September 15th, 2008

Oh my.  Summer really went out (I hope…is it gone?  Or is it just hiding?) with one last big sucker punch to the nads.  We had the single most assy, humid, ungodly hot weekend.  With torrential rains. Naturally, that meant I had to go out in it to try on bridesmaid dresses and attend a […]

Screw it.

Friday, September 12th, 2008

This has been such a week full of depressing, disgusting news.  I can’t hack it anymore.  Just gonna end the week with some brain-soothing smut.

Wrong, levels 75 and up

Thursday, September 11th, 2008

Oh sweet jeebus, why doth these rednecks vex me so?  They have as much skill at picking names as they do Presidential candidates. Zoo’s tiger cub named Billy Ray Billy Ray is the new name of the tiger cub born on Mother’s Day at the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium. The cub, which now weighs […]

A steaming bowl of bile

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

Hey, want to start your morning off nauseous and angry?  Sure, we all do!  Then set down your breakfast and read about how last year the State government of Alaska (endorsed by VP candidate Gov. Lynne Spears) paid out $150 for every wolf killed, provided you hacked off one of its legs to show as […]

Writing on the Wal

Monday, September 8th, 2008

We made one of our really infrequent trip to Wal-Mart this weekend to print some photos…only reason we ever set foot into that place.  While BW was uploading the pics, I went to browse the book section.  Now it’s probably hard for most of us reading this to grasp, but remember, for vast huge swathes […]

PLEASE Won’t you be my neighbor?

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

So my neighbor the Russian Mafia Guy claims that he and his annoying weird-ass family are moving soon.  He’s been saying this for a while, but I never believed him.  But lately he’s been fixing up his hideous front yard to make it look nice for potential buyers, and yesterday he got one of those […]

Oh hai…

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

Been a while.  I hope that everybody had a nice long weekend.  We sort of did, except that BW had to spend some of it finishing up some household projects, like completing the paint job for CosaNostra Grandma next door.  I’m glad that’s done, though…now we don’t have to worry about being sent to sleep […]
