From an email making the rounds, and answering the question: What have we learned in 2065 years?

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."

Cicero - 55 BC

Clever, those (Republican) Romans.

It's been all downhill since we burned Carthage.

Cicero - 54 BC

Confucius say: Sometime quick knock better score than full meld.

Looks like it's your turn, Althouse.

Since reading this blog, every time I take a photo indoors I think to myself, "At the _______ cafe." Today the hallway of my dumpy apartment complex was filled with an eerie, smokey haze. "At the Knife Hit / Section-8 Cafe."

Had to resort to more serious squirrel preventive measures this afternoon, after all the other non life threatening measures proved fruitless. One rogue squirrel wouldn't jump off the platform feeder even after banging on the inside window a few inches away. So I said that's it, grabbed the kids Crossman pellet gun from the basement, gave it 7 pumps, and "thwhatt!", right between the fucking blinkers. Just like I was 9 yrs old again.

You people are coffee whores and what is that huge chocolate thing?

Try Water! You will thank me.

And why wasn't I called?

If you are playing gin at least drink some gin...think of the W.C. Fields post below!

Double-punch Tuesday!

MadisonMan said...

...and I do hope that's a gingersnap, which is their best cookie.

ricpic said...

You equate getting off the dole and working with slavery, HD? Yes, of course you do.

Ann Althouse said...

"You people are coffee whores and what is that huge chocolate thing?"

A chocolate peanut-butter cookie. It was yummy with the caffe latte.

Titus said...

What's the name of that place?

I am not a cafe person.

Is this your fav in Mad. City?

Titus said...

Do they have fab salads with goat cheese, cranberries and walnuts?

Also, are they rare clumber friendly?

Pogo said...

Adam Sandler is the Walrus.

Goo goo gajoob.

MadisonMan said...

Titus, I think that's Barriques on Monroe.

Was there something there in between Barriques and Ovens on Monroe? I can't remember anymore.

MadisonMan said...

You would have to leave the rare clumbers outside, but you can see them through the window. And people would stop and pet them. And silently criticize the owner for abandoning them outside a coffee shop.

Titus said...

I went to the one in Middleton once, bleh.

You actually have to get in your car and go to a cafe.


That's just sad.

Pogo said...

Today I was dealt a difficult hand. But I am almost done, and I didn't fold. Even made someone smile.

I'm hoping for a better hand tomorrow, but won't hold my breath any. This time of year, the most damaged people come to be healed, like ants on Jesus.

Jason (the commenter) said...

... deal with it.

You should always speak politely when hot, or flaming, drinks are available to throw.

Ann Althouse said...

"I went to the one in Middleton once, bleh."

Try Monroe Street (or downtown in the Lorraine, the building I was going to buy a condo in (but didn't)).

deborah said...

That's a very inviting picture. Is that your son?

Christy said...

What a lovely happy afternoon! May you have many more such.

Having eaten too many buckeyes over the holiday, the idea of peanut butter in that cookie puts me off. Oddly enough, chocolate doesn't. /grin

deborah said...

I'm free fallin'.

Penny said...

Cripes, garage. If the birds don't mind sharing their food, why do you?

My birds and squirrels coexist quite well. In fact, I think the birds appreciate the noise the squirrels make when the bird's natural enemy, the neighborhood outdoor cat, slips under the fence and crouches in wait for a tasty dinner.

HD wants everyone to forget his is the party of slavery, sharecropping, and Jim Crow.

Angel plays cards with Althouse... she was quoted saying... deal with it.

We just watched The Kennedy Center Honors.

Steven Tyler stole the show.

Paul McCartney's hair is a color that does not occur in nature.

President Obama cannot keep a beat.

You have just vindicated what I've been saying for 2 1/2 years - The Zero is the whitest white guy who ever lived.

Bless you.

Irene said...

edutcher, it was embarrassing. I will never listen to "Hey Jude" again without that image popping up.

edutcher said...

I know the feeling. This is a guy who really doesn't like being around most people

As I've said, he makes Bush 41 look like Soul Brother Number 1.

Lem said...

Obama cant sing because he is not an American ;)

So that royally pissed him off? Scared him away? Permanently retired him to the great oak in the sky?

My wife and I played gin rummy all day on the 26th, sitting in front of the fireplace, drinking bubbly. Sublime.

Daniel Fielding said...

Ann- the ERC cafes in Ann Arbor wont let customers play card games in their cafes!!!! I have been asked to stop a couple of times.

I am going to put a link to this thread in a email I am going to send to the CEO of the Espresso Royale Company.
