An empty cafe is like a rotunda without balloons.

Redundancy is our specialty.

Has someone's operatives been busy?.

PS That business about women rolling in their husband's smell in bed or wearing their dirty shirts for the smell really blew my mind, first time I heard of it.

Settle in? With those chairs? Are you nuts?

Find a real American cafe', with couches and comfy, padded chairs, will you?

I've thought, since those crazy vacation hotel photos, you've seriously got to give some thought to these obsessions of yours,...

A campus view out the window?

Hard to read the sign, which probably does NOT say ADIOS cafe. But whatever it is, it sure looks like an advertisement for "goodbye."

edutcher,

Really? Wow. To me, that's like a major feature of women. I couldn't get my last girlfriend out of my bed, and I immediately changed the bed clothes when I made her leave, for just the opposite reason.

I have a tattoo of a pin up girl on my left arm. I went to a spin class on Tuesday and this chick next to me was staring at it and said 'real classy.' When I said thanks she responded; "it wasn't meant as a compliment' to which I responded:

"I know. I've been married for 20 years and have a 14 year old daughter so I am fluent in over six million forms of sarcasm.."

It went right over her head.

That looks like a no-smoking building to me.

Last night we watched Sharon Stone and Michael Douglas use the comeback line, "What are you going to do? Arrest me for smoking?"

Those two had some very Basic Instincts that included smoking hot sex and smoking cigarettes before and after.

Those were the days (1992) when movies told good stories without fantasy super heroes to make them interesting.

What would be the punishment for the crime of smoking in that cafe?

Anyone been in a Borders bookstore since they announced going tits up? I was for the first time last night. Mania. I did pick up a couple of books on writing I've been eying for a while as they were nearly 1/2 off.

I would think buying anything about the publishing business prior to 2010 is like trying to get the body temp of a dinosaur.

Matt would like to take the floor for a few minutes.

Look at what a 'hapless blonde' did?!

I went into our local Borders the other day, Scott. Since everything was 40% off, it was nearly stripped clean, but I picked up the new "Bloom County" collection, a couple of volumes of "The Complete Peanuts," both of the Pope's books on Jesus and "Five Points" by Tyler Anbinder. I'd been wanting that last one for a long time, since the history of antebellum New York fascinates me, and I was glad to get it for chump change.

Other than that - meh. I used to work at a Borders, and I had a ringside seat to their crash. They brought it all on themselves. So good riddance.

Scott M said...

but I picked up the new "Bloom County" collection

WAIT WAIT WAIT! There's a NEW collection?

Christopher in MA said...

Scott, it's the "Bloom County Complete Library," with notes by Berke Breathed himself. I just got volume 4 of a 5 volume set. Volume 5 comes out in November. Whether they're going to collect "Outland" and "Opus" too, I don't know.

I thought that was a Norwegian prison at first

Scott M said...

AH! I did see that. Now is the perfect time to pick it you, you're right.

All I can say about this GOP plan: DISAPPOINTED!

I would rather see Boehner and McConnell attempt to pass CC&B again and when it gets blocked, call a press conference and announce that Reid, Pelosi and Obama HATE America.

Triangle Man said...

How to solve the problem of racial disparities in the criminal justice system? "Don't go out there and get in trouble."

Sixty Grit said...

Fred4 - that would require Boner and company to have a spine. Or brains. They have neither. Oh crap, this is starting to read like a Carol Herman rant. SPIN! MONEY TREES! REINDEER! PISS PRIZE! Never mind...

WV: faston - what they are trying to pull.

@eductcher: Dyed-in-the-wool American leftists will never believe that there is such a thing as an asthmatic blow-hard.

Michael said...

Is there no end to these sterile places in Wisconsin? I have this sense that Madison is a country town where people crave being hip and are always, always, a lap behind. The haircuts are last year, the designers have missed a shift in taste, the people try so hard to be cool but are wearing last year's styles and last years language.

I think I picked it up from my foster mother, who lived a long, long time,...

John Boehner is demanding House Tea Party members vote for a bill that's not the real bill. And not to ask questions about what's in the real bill.

Where's the cash register?

"I couldn't get my last girlfriend out of my bed"

Try filling her with helium next time. She'll float right off the bed, and you won't get dizzy blowing her up.
