(1) They’ve been adjusting my medication which has caused me to make several involuntary attempts at poetry despite my better judgment. Such efforts have produced several crimes against humanity, one of which follows.(2) If I were God, no one could hurt meAnd I would give everyone everything they wantedBecause I want to see them happyAnd not because I need to be loved.(3) Pretty cool, huh? Maybe someday you’ll see it again when you’re riding the bus.(4) Ha!

Happy trails to the Professor and Meade. We'll leave a light on for you.
Dogs read the morning blogs in the foliage.Postings from raccoon, possum, rabbit and cat.A dog internet needs only multimedia scent.

Where's that Air Force One passenger manifest?
Another swath scythed across the lawn as a break before lunch.Jehovah's Witnesses are accosting neighbors today but either dog or scythe seems to have discouraged them in my case.Scythes are useless as weapons, I guess they don't know. The geometry and balance are all wrong.My friend F.T.Grampp had the line, as he related at work one Monday:JHS: Hi, we're Jehovah's Witnesses.FTG: Hi, I'm God.
Lalalalalala...lalalalalaaaMy darling, you mean so very much to me,I love you so deeplyIt just makes me...Duke, duke, duke, duke of prunes, prunes, prunesI'll never forget you darling...And you'll be my duchess, my duchess of prunes
I would certainly choose Bissage over the present incumbent, but sadly the election is rigged....Some kind words for Jehovah Witnesses: they were the only religious group to be imprisoned by the Soviet Union, Nazi Germany, and the United States. In the concentration camps, they were the only people who could voluntarily leave by simply changing their minds. They did not and by all accounts treated their fellow prisoners with kindness and humanity. There have been many movies made about all the different victims of the Nazi regime--including just recently the Tom Cruise movie about the sufferings of Nazis under the Nazis. However, the courage and decency of the Witnesses has been completely ignored....That's not to say that they're not the bane of Saturday mornings.
rhhardin : Jehovah's Witnesses are accosting neighbors today but either dog or scythe seems to have discouraged them in my case.Were you also wearing a black robe and did you by any chance offer to play a game of chess with them?
Pravda opinion piece: American descent into Marxism at "breathtaking speed"Link:http://english.pravda.ru/opinion/columnists/107459-0/"Opening: "It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people."The left must be proud....I like that even Pravda considers it a "descent" though.2nd money quote (literally):"The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe."
Is that a dahlia? An interesting flower indeed.
I'll add a topic. The shrinking grocery bag.While Ann and Meade take off, and perhaps have a picnic, they may only need one grocery bag for the same price they got two filled.In a relative blink of the eye, the 6 oz bag of chips is now 4 oz. The last of the 1.75 quart "half gallon containers of ice cream have yielded to the 1.5 quart "half gallons.". Mustard is gone from 16 oz containers to 15 oz now 14 7/8ths. Coffee from 16 oz to 13 to 11.5 to 10 oz containers since I was married.The process is reiterated for most products not under law to be sold by the pound. The sunscreen and toothpaste I just got have 1 oz less than containers 2 years ago. Veggies are 15 oz now, and I just noticed cans of frikkin' tuna fish are now 5 oz. This is all happening idependent of consumers. The line that people "prefer" the 5 oz tunafish to the 6 oz one is Bullshit. As is the claim that "smaller portions are greener and heathier" and what enlightened people demand...Nor is it a function of merchants desire to keep the price of dogfood, cereal, yogurt, candy bars low. (the raw materials per container customarily are less than 50%, sometimes less than 10% of costs in the production, merchant, containerization packaging, transpo, distribution, retailing costs.)And it is completely outside "freedom! free consumer choice! let people with their spending decisions in the markets decide!!" line of obfustication. This is all part of cabals of distributors and wholesalers collaborating and setting "product sizing" nationwide. More and more, those B2B networks and lobbyist-government nexuses are functioning as effective monopolies. Consumer choice is neutralized with the exception of "branding".1. Which brand of heating oil do you prefer at 2.99-3.03 for all "competitors".2. Since manufacturers say stores "no longer can stock" half gallons of ice cream, or 1.75s anymore - the insignificant consumer has a choice of at least which 1.5 gallon brand has the prettyist packaging? That and "on sale"? 3. Since all financial products are connected somewhat through cabals of financiers and insurers and all fail & fall together..and governments bail them out if they are "too big to fail" or losers include too many members of Ruling Elites...what consumer choice is left? Gold? The shrinking grocery bag, in other words, is emblematic of monopolies and cabals having more control over America than voters or supposedly "free markets".
Scythes are useless as weapons.Some people calls 'em scythes, I calls 'em slingblades. Mmmm.
I spent one summer working as a farm intern.This really cute girl said she wanted to show me her snath.Imagine my disappointment.
Bissage -- did you respond, "Yeth, pleath?"
Incommunicado - great song by Marillion!
I'm home from my night in the hospital, where I had a lovely view of tugboats and barges on the Mississippi River, enhanced by very comforting medications. All appears to be well, and I thank everyone for the kind wishes you sent my way this week.
It's showtime girls.I am heading out to sling my pussy.Dindin, drinks, a couple of parties at some bars. The rare clumbers are making me feel guilty because they know I am leaving.Got to see how much I am worth.Tensions mounting.Seedy Sin City.
Well, Susan Boyle apparently did an awesome job tonight, but she took second place to a dance troupe. I just saw both videos (here) and I have to say, as good as she was, the choice was the correct one. (At least, that is, between the two.)
Beth, sorry I missed the earlier announcement. Glad you're on the mend.
Beth: Best wishes for a speedy recovery and blooming good health in the future.
@Beth, didn't realize. Glad you're getting better.
Dog with contrail.The web says the contrail is Quantas 108 from JFK to Los Angeles, at 38,000 feet and doing 415 kts, Boeing 744, passing over Central Ohio.
Dittos to Beth.
There was really not much to say this week was there?James Bond wakes up ;)
Beth, didn't know anything was wrong?! But glad all's ok.
incommunicado?For a time?Is there a visit to a justice of the peace involved? A trip to some exotic locale involving just you and a favored commentater?
Beth, welcome home and welcome back. May the recovery continue to go fast and extremely well.
Sotomayor will, hopefully, not go quietly.The case for Sotomayor ;)I specialize in Love... I'll make you feel like new I specialize in Love... let me work on youIf you think you been mistreated... you can come to meIf you feel you been cheated... you can come to meI specialize in Love... I'll make you feel like new I specialize in Love... let me work on youI can mend a broken hart... I can fix it one two tree.I can take away the pain... you can count on me.
Beth, I miss a lot around here but am sorry I missed any earlier allusions to this. Glad to hear all is well and home is sweet home. Take care.
knox, I had a hysterectomy - the full works. Check out davincihysterectomy.com - my doctor's a hi-tech geek and I love him for that. I'm looking forward to just feeling better all around in a few weeks, but just 24 hours after the actual surgery, I'm already up and around.

Now.. there is just too much hugging going on out there!Some say they should just send it thus avoiding certain complications.If I could mail my heartRight to you, I wouldId pack it up, seal it tightAnd Id send it over nightEvery time I hear your voiceAnd I look into your eyesSends a burning sweet sensationOh, inside of meThe look in your eyesHas found meI am sendingSending my love to youPraying that you are homeSealing it with a kissSending my love.BTW theo, yes, these woman also sing a bit off key, just a bit.
Hey john,We got john,We got John,and now we got john.So many j/Johns here wer'e gonna attracted some undesirable attention. Is this town big enough for the 3 of us?
/Another John entering, stage right:"I haven't lost my temper in 40 years; but, Pilgrim, you caused me a lot of trouble this morning using my name without the decency of asking; you might have got somebody killed; and somebody oughta belt you in the mouth. But I won't. I won't. The hell I won't." See what you started?
of course it would not be Althouse if we didnt have a different opinion, even about hugging. i love it.Personally.I've been writing letters everyday nowsince you've been goneTalking to you on the telephoneFor what seems like a whole life longI've got something to give you That the mailman can't deliverI can't mail it inI can't phone it in I can't send it inEven by your closest kinI'm bringing it to you personallyI'm bringing it to you personallyThere's nothing like the feeling I getOh when you touching me babyThere's nothing like the feeling you getWhen I'm there with you, oh loveI've got something that the mailman can't deliverI can't mail it inI can't phone it in I can't send it inEven by your closest kin I'm bringing it to you personallyI'm bringing it to you personally.
/Carnac the Magnificent enters stage center:"Unlike communism, democracy does not mean having just one ineffective political party; it means having two ineffective political parties."ooh. May your sister elope with a camel.And stop using my name."
Without much fanfare Althouse announced this week that shes excited about this.Now its her favorite movie, its her blog, why cant we just say something you know whatever. is it that hard? it is a dam good movie.Overkill.I cant get to sleepI think about the implicationsOf diving in too deepAnd possibly the complicationsEspecially at nightI worry over situationsI know will be alrightPerahaps its just my imaginationDay after day it reappearsNight after night my heartbeat, shows the fearGhosts appear and fade awayAlone between the sheetsOnly brings exasperationIts time to walk the streetsSmell the desperationAt least theres pretty lightsAnd though theres little variationIt nullifies the nightFrom overkill.Never mind me.
It was also announced this week that after much thought, consideration and perhaps even prayers Archi has finally decided.I never felt sorry for Archi, in fact I kind of hate the guy. Abusador.Georgy Porgy.Its not your situation, I just need contemplation over youIm not so systematic, its just that Im an addict for your loveNot the only one that holds you, I never ever should have told youYoure my only girlIm not the only one that holds you, I never ever should have told youYoure my only worldJust think how long Ive known you, its long for me to own you, lock and keyIts really not confusing, Im just the young illusion, cant you seeIm not the only one that holds you, I never ever should have told youYoure my only girlIm not the only one that holds you, I never ever should have told youYoure my only worldGeorgy porgy, pudding pie, kissed the girls and made them cryKissed the girls and made them cry, kissed the girls and made them cry.
From Slog: Another perspective on the Sotomayor nomination.
Beth--glad to hear that you're already up and at 'em. I am likely to have knee surgery in the fairly near future myself; not looking forward to that, but it'll be good to get it over with so as to start the healing process.
Hi, everyone. I'm back.Beth, I'm glad you're doing well.I was at a wedding.No, not my own. We're not having a wedding. Remember?

and finally the Roadside Memorial.champagne supernova.Someday you will find me Caught beneath the landslide In a champagne supernova in the sky Someday you will find me Caught beneath the landslide In a champagne supernova A champagne supernova in the sky Wake up the dawn and ask her why A dreamer dreams, she never dies Wipe that tear away now from your eye Slowly walking down the hall Faster than a cannonball.
thats a downer to end thing with - lets see if we can find something upbeat.
Rock lobster. Everybody down, down.We were at a party His ear lobe fell in the deep Someone reached in and grabbed it It was a rock lobster We were at the beach Everybody had matching towels Somebody went under a dock And there they saw a rock It wasn't a rock It was a rock lobster Motion in the ocean His air hose broke Lots of trouble Lots of bubble He was in a jam S'in a giant clam Down, down Underneath the waves Mermaids wavin' Wavin' to mermen Wavin' sea fans Sea horses sailin' Dolphins wailin' Red snappers snappin' Clam shells clappin' Muscles flexin' Flippers flippin' Down, down Let's rock!.
I just watched "Gone Baby Gone". Great movie! Strangely, Ben Affleck ended up directing a better movie than any of the ones he appeared in himself.He's a decent character actor, but based on this and "Good Will Hunting" I'd like to see him do more writing and directing.
Beth: I had a hysterectomy some years ago and it vastly improved the quality of my life. I hope you have a speedy and complete recovery, and enjoy the same freedoms from annoying female physical concerns that I have.Revenant: ITA. One of the better movies I've seen in the last few years. My husband says Casey was too much of a lightweight to carry his role, but I thought he did well.
Girls I hit payday tonight.Un fucking believable. StunningAmazing, body for days and days. And he couldn't get enough of me.He lives in Quincy, Mass.Hair incredible.Needless to say I am walking on clouds.He was absolutely incredible.Dark Hair, accent, foreign name, body that was so incredible, strands of hair that fell down in his face.He was unbelievable. I was shaking. Everyone at the bar was watching. He took off his shirt. I took off my shirt. He pulled out my hog. Then he pulled out my hog. Guys walked by and touched my exposed ass. But he wouldn't have any of that. He said that is mine (for 5 minutes).It was an incredible evening.We didnt actually have sex though. I just want to know that they want me. That is enough for me. I was like it is nice to meet you but I have to go. I don't want to put myself in a situation where he rejects me. I will just stew in the fact that he wanted me really bad.
Diversity beat Susan Boyle. Yup, the best talent in the world can't win when it goes up against diversity. Let that be a lesson to us all. Remember: Celebrate Diversity: The First Commandment.
Congrats, Titus.Second Commandment: Celebrate The GayMay their numbers increase by recruiting little boys.World Without End. Amen.
I just watched "Gone Baby Gone". Great movie! Strangely, Ben Affleck ended up directing a better movie than any of the ones he appeared in himself.I agree.
"He pulled out my hog. Then he pulled out my hog."Wow.Now let us get this straight: You were at some sort of establishment where stew is made? You took your hogs along with you in some sort of concealed/carry fashion, met this dark hairy foreign-accented fellow - a complete stranger in the unnamed establishment.And then he suddenly pulled out both of your hogs?
Maybe he's bi-hogal.
Just like Juan Baptista dos Santos – The Man With Two Penises!
He is famous for having named his penes - being Hispanic he named the right one Jose.He named the left one Hose B.
Beth, did you have laparoscopic or abdominal incision? I am having the latter, on June 12, and dread the recovery after being gutted like a deer.But it's worth it. I have a solid tumor inside an extremely enlarged right ovary, and there's a 20% chance this could be my 4th primary cancer, and we won't know for sure until it's removed and pathology tested. I feel fine, no pain or bleeding, found it during 6 months followup screening after tamoxifen (which can cause uterine cancer).I'm optimistic it's not cancer, but would hate to have to go through chemo again right now. *sigh* Still bouncing back from breast cancer treatment 2007-08.Titus, I didn't know you were a hog farmer. Bet that Mary Roach video got you going. That, and Deliverance.
Beth and kentuckyliz - best wishes to you both for successful surgeries and speedy recoveries.
Second Michael H's wishes.Do well, Beth and KLiz
kliz, first - you're in my prayers. I hope all is benign and if not, that they get it all out. The incision won't be fun, but I'm with you - I'll deal with that discomfort over any other worries.I had something a little less invasive than laparoscopic - it's done with a thing called a da vinci machine. They made "ports" (!) not incisions. Wow. I'm still achy and since the belly is where my torque is, I expect to be for awhile, but I have nothing to complain about.Best wishes, Liz.
Kev - good luck with the knee. Joan, thanks for the encouragement. I'm already noticing a lack of pain I'd been having - I wasn't expecting it to be that quick of an improvement, but wow, am I happy about it.And add me to the fans of Gone, Baby, Gone.
