I worked in Chicago the 30th and 31st, South Loop. was staying downtown. New Year's Eve I left the hotel at about 10. Tons of women outside in the cold with really, really short skirts on. Mostly women who should not have been wearing short skirts. Came back around 1:30, same thing. My ride dropped me half a block from the hotel. I walked the whole way behind a young woman wearing a skirt that barely covered her ass. Her thighs and butt weren't gigantic but way too big for what she was wearing. And she was hardly the first one I saw that night - I just got a close and unfortunate view of it. Used to be women who needed to lose weight didn't dress in revealing clothing. I can't figure out how that became acceptable. Go back to being uncomfortable with your bodies, please.

Note to self: Labs visiting is the reason one picks up all of one's blood thinner and beta blocker pills dropped that can hidie under the counters. Dogs go straight to them.

"Come on in"

Guess Meade's beverage:

Color, density and dark brown head suggest a malted stout. Or a Sprecher Root Beer?

rehajm said...

Hmm...teapot was cooking- is it just coffee?

Spent New Years Eve sitting with the father of a friend, whose wife had passed away in October. Their Labrador is what keeps him going through his very heavy grief.

"You want something to chew on?"

"Why do you think I'm following you?"

(are people always this dense? woof)

It's the slob culture that came in with the hippies.

Most people have no respect for themselves.

Which is why they vote Democrat.

Zeus is one handsome stud muffin. Couldn't tell, but does he still have his cojones?

Hillary! has left the hospital.

Never missed a day of work, took and replied to e-mails and phone calls from her hospital bed throughout.

Saturday afternoon we got several guys together and saw Reacher.

Tom Cruse got the Jack Reacher persona right, even if he was a foot too short.

I was amazed that the movie followed the book. When does that ever happen?

Afterwards we discussed the Jack Reacher character as a classical example of the meaning of "friendship."

It seems that a friend will do anything for a friend. Family is a lesser loyalty level than a true friend level.

I believe Proverbs says, "better is a friend nearby than a brother far off."

Here they are:

* I'm busy right now
* I can't come in right now
* Things are going on, talk to you later
* I fell down, don't bother me right now, because it really hurts
* No, r u kidng? I can't testy fi rit nw aszus a bump did

* I'm fine, just fine, see? fine. A trillion dollars
* Yes, be right there as soon as I can
* Laters.

We had a border collie that only ate when he was hungry, so we would just leave food out and he would saunter over and eat when and how much he wanted and no more.

Then, one weekend, we agreed to take care of our friends' brown lab.

During the lab’s stay, I heard a strange noise in our mudroom, and went to investigate.

I found the back half of a brown lab sticking out of a tipped over bag of Science Diet, and he showed no signs of imminent or near-by satiation.

Good times. Good times.

Erika said...

The utter delight in your voice as you greet that gentleman is charming. I only sound like that when I've been away from my kids for more than 48 hours, which has happened exactly once in eleven years. (It was for an anniversary trip to Bali, so it was worth the wait.)

ricpic said...

Hey Pogo, what's a serious doctor type person doing wasting time watching Pirini torture the language? No answer required of course.

Pogo said...

Althouse's "... come on in!" immediately triggered that memory, and it took less than one minute to find on YouTube.

Damn, that thing still makes me laugh.

Dogs and more dogs:

That's a lot of maple.

Nice dog, too.

Ann Althouse said...

The drink is Meade's mud.

Ann Althouse said...

"The utter delight in your voice..."

When I heard it, I thought it was kind of absurd. Why am I acting that excited? It's like when I watch myself on Bloggingheads: Why do I smile the whole way through?

Deb said...

It's wonderful to be greeted by a dog. They always look so happy to see you. Our foster puppy is still young enough that she sometimes pees all over the place when someone new comes in.

Amartel said...

Quayle: labs + food = -food.

I too am acquainted with a brown (excuse me, "chocolate") lab who overindulges at every opportunity and has food radar. Follows visitors around (very much like Zeus) sussing out the potential for food donations/scavenging opportunities. "Accidentally" knocks low-lying edibles off tables with tail. Whoops! Soowy. Once had to be taken to the vet due to eating an entire bag of dog food. It actually saved him since the vet found disease early. Saved by overindulging. Eat and be merry, labs.

The Grateful Dead appear on Playboy After Dark in 1969, and Hef discusses hippie-dom.

Featuring a very young Jerry Garcia.

Keep on Truckin', Hef.

Althouse: never did peg you as a squee kinda lady. They bring it out in us, no matter how dignified we usually are : )

Al Jazeera to buy Current TV

So we go from lefty talking heads with no audience, to... what exactly?

rhhardin said...

Say-foring is how dogs learn to talk.

Shouting Thomas said...

At least, the gun hysteria seems to have somewhat abated. That's a relief.

The liberal media had a shit fit. They basically laid the blame for the slaughter of the innocents on the NRA. With absolute no evidence and for no apparent reason.

Crazy shit!

That Zeus is one handsome fellow.

I find that comment distasteful. Who asked you to look? It is a free country -- women, people can do what they want. The same kind of judgmental shit takes on a dangerous turn in other parts of the world, like Afghanistan for example..Leave them alone.

If a person can look however they want to look with the attitude you describe they should have no problem with people discussing it. Just because you don't care about how you present yourself you don't have the right to demand other prople not comment about it. They have the choice to discuss it or not. It might not be polite, but then neither is forcing people to see your private or less pleasing parts revealed in front of them.
It's about good manners on everyone's part. It's judgmental, but it's in reaction to being somewhat deliberately provoked as well.

Baby back ribs.

Totally missed CrunchyFrog's post!

Sorry.

I liked that part down there where Alexander Graham Bell the Great conquered Afghanistan. Boy, do you guys ever have history screwed up.

Why wasn't Dr. Watson mentioned?

Chip Ahoy said...

My last two Belgians were a year old when I got them and would have nothing to do with me at first. I was their kidnapper.

So to skip all the long dragged out b.s. of her getting used to me I speed up the second one by grabbing her when she got near enough and embracing her longer than she wanted and harder than comfortable while whispering sweet comforting nothings directly into her ear. Then released her. She flew out of my arms and spun around and took that pose they do when regarding confusing eminent danger.

A friend was there and laughed his ass off.

He thought that was the worst start of relationship he could imagine.

But a week later he saw for himself, she decided since then she liked being in my arms hearing sweet nothings in her ear, and it was very easy to entice her to jump into my arms while I was standing, odd for a dog that size. And only by invitation.

The way to do that so fast was a bit of back and forth invitation and rejection. It's confusing at first because you enthusiastically invite the dogs paws on your body then immediately push the dog back for being insufficiently forceful or high up, then switch immediately back to the exact same enthusiastic inviting and patting of chest and coaxing to jump on you, then push back again for being insufficiently forceful, then immedia ... you get the idea, back and forth, back and forth playful enthusiasm that invites the dog to jump. And ONLY jump when you're being an idiot like that inviting them up, otherwise, thud, no happy connection at all. Within a few episodes of that weird push and pull playing and BANG the dog is jumping on your body and twisting while flying to land on you right and trusting you'll clamp them.

Zeus can drop by anytime he gets tired of snow. he'll make a super pal for my daughters Chocolate Lab. Beach at Carmel is off leash. They'll love it.

Farmer: Looking for a guy who went to school with my wife earlier today. Graduated early 60's. Looked in her yearbook to confirm his name. Guess what? No fat folks. Like a lot of other stool I detest it's generational.

"Hey, Babe E!"

And Althouse SAYS she's not a dog lover?

Ha ha

Whew, decibel level might be KILLER otherwise.

The women who were showing off their asses. Do you think they want men to avert their eyes?

It is a free country -- women, people can do what they want. The same kind of judgmental shit takes on a dangerous turn in other parts of the world, like Afghanistan for example..Leave them alone.

LOL. Does smoking marijuana lead to heroin addiction too? Oh! Violent video games make kids go nuts and shoot up schools! Rock music leads to teen pregnancy! We'd better be careful how we think! The wrong thoughts can take dangerous, scary turns! Keep icky thoughts out of your head - or we'll end up like the terrorists!

Boo!

The Farmer said...

Honestly. In the America I know and love a man has not only the right, but the duty to retch at the sight of a fatty in a micro.

The Farmer said...

Unless you're into fatties, in which case, God love you. This is America. We don't stone you or put you in jail for being a chubby chaser. And I for one will fight for your right to pursue more cushion for the pushin'.

Penny said...

Perhaps Althouse's voice sounds so shrill because randy Andy Sullivan is beating her to his "Pay Per View" blog?

RE:"My last two Belgians were a year old when I got them and would have nothing to do with me at first. "

Doesn't this belong in the Hefner thread, filed under 'salacious sugary waffles'?

Bob Ellison said...

Penny, Andrew Sullivan's apparent move to a "pay to read my opinions" thing fascinates me. The New York Times did that for a while, and the Wall Street Journal seems to be going that way now.

These people are all, essentially, bloggers. Why do they think their words are so valuable? What would become of Ann Althouse's blog if she started charging for entry? Maybe she could charge for commenting. That'd change things!

I'd have to stop slut shaming!
