At first the photo gave me vertigo.

Zeus: I'm having nothing to do with curtainlady.

edutcher said...

Well, that reminds me of 2 beings.

And I'll leave it at that.

Look like PJs to me from the fold.

"Look like PJs to me from the fold."

Ed, it's like you're playing a character whose shtick it is to be wrong about everything. Tell me it's a joke. Please.

Those must be crankypants.

wyo sis said...

Beta, the perspective made me a little dizzy as well. try looking at it upside down.

edutcher said...

No, they just look like a pair of pajama bottoms to me; look at how the fabric circles at your ankles (I presume they're your ankles). I'm maybe more used to looking down at PJs than you. In fact, Someone gave me a pair of very loose bottoms that look like that for the cold nights around here.

At least, you're, well, less (I guess I better fill in the adjectives) now.

Really? Are you saying the Professor never looks at her feet?

Or are you telling us you're one of those people who wears PJ's 24/7?

:)

I woulda said some variation of sweatpants, but since sweats and pjs kinda run together for most people...?

I think the cammie is cute.

lemondog said...

Who's underfoot....you or Zeus?

BTW is anyone aware of a cultural trend in which a person refers to themselves as ’they?’

A neighbor commented that a friend of her daughter refers to herself in 3rd party plural non-gender ‘they.’

I think my problem was that I was upside-down and the computer screen was right-side-up.

Need more coffee.

Sit snow and sun video.

A voluntary neighborhood-surveying sit, not a sit-stay.

Since some here, other than I, have commented on the comeliness of certain of her appurtenances, it may be she's hasn't seen them in a while.

Or are you telling us you're one of those people who wears PJ's 24/7?

I thought you're only allowed to do that if you have a blog.

:O

garage mahal said...

Wisconsin really taking it to Ohio State in hoops. Make that: THEE University of Wisconsin. Heh.

Rusty said...

They like to lay down right where you need to go.

Inga said...

Gosh, I'm almost beginning to feel sorry for ol' Ed.

Cris Brown said...

so sad picture it.New to Network Marketing

CEO-MMP said...

Inga:

He's wearing you down.

ed...winning!


;)

Inga said...

CEO, only because I have a soft heart.

edutcher said...

Inga said...

Gosh, I'm almost beginning to feel sorry for ol' Ed.

Don't; it seems Ann and I go through this every few weeks.

From her posting stuff about people all the Boomers would know (or at least their work), I figure there's a commonality there.

Ann thinks I'm stepping on her toes or trying to pry.

Not the intent, but, you say, "Leader Of The Pack", or, "Along Comes Mary", and all the heads nod responsively. We can't help but make note. It's who we are.

Inga said...

There he goes again, reading Althouse's mind. Ed, stop, it's getting to be embarrassing for you.

Some people look at a dog and see man's best friend, a loyal companion, a bit of shared comfort on our evolutionary journey.

I choose to see 30 patties, 14 steaks, ribs for a party of 6, and enough soup to last a fortnight.

JAL said...

Does he ever go home?

I mean home home.

Here is a great example of bullshit, though well-intentioned, passing as serious scientific observation and professional editors letting it pass.

Slate's astronomy blogger issued a post regarding a photograph of a New Zealand volcano from space. The post concerned the amazingly circular shape of the volcano. How amazing.

Well, a day or so later, the professional astronomer blogger, to his credit, acknowledged that what he thought was the circular edge of the volcano's base was actually the gigantic border of the national park around the volcano.

One wonders how often Slate's editors question the accuracy of their "expert" bloggers. I will guess that such bloggers have the authority to make posts with only cursory supervision.

This professional astronomer comes across as a complete goof in his videos. Reassuring.

Baron Zemo said...

You have to leave the fashion to the fashion police eddie.

That is one of the inumerable venetian blind style skirts that the Ol' Prefessor has been sporting for the last few years.

You can try to offer some fashion advice but it will fall on deaf ears.
Some people pick a style and stick with it forever. There is nothing you can do.

edutcher said...

All I said was they looked like pants to me.

Inga said...

There he goes again, reading Althouse's mind. Ed, stop, it's getting to be embarrassing for you.

Nice try.

You must have had an ancestor who went around stirring up lynch mobs.

Baron Zemo said...

I think they are from the lesbian hot dog stand collection.

Not that there is anything wrong with that.

Inga said...

Eddy, I'm trying to help you out here. But hey, carry on, I always thought the Pepe Le Pew cartoons were funny as all get out.

Baron Zemo said...

Edutcher said.....

That's not fair. They never did that.

They just made little Dutch girls hide in the attic.

Big difference.

Baron Zemo said...

But their hair was perfect!

Inga said...

And Baron has TV shows that are huge flops.

Coketown said...

I presume they're your ankles

Hahaha. That old pick-up line.

Original Mike said...

Wow. Really boring basketball game today. Only one team scored points.

Inga said...

And strange how the ethnic German woman married a Jewish man who she loved had 4 half Jewish children, Baron you despicable jerk.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

4 half Jewish children

What was the other half. Protestant? Lutheran?

Inga said...

My family was Lutheran from the time of the Reformation.

I'm speaking of my children and my husband in ethnic terms, we did not belong to any religion.

Gene said...

The photo angle makes the dog look like charred roast sucking pig.

Tom said...

high capacity camo assault pants will be banned soon!

MadisonMan said...

I had the same thought.

Off to the south tomorrow. Dying relative. (sigh) Time to help them prepare for the next 6 months.

Sunscreen, people!

kentuckyliz said...

@ lemondog: really? Is that just this one girl's affected manner of speaking, or is it a thing?

Makes me think of the royal We and...

...this.

Ann Althouse said...

"Funky crinkle camo skirt, Madame."

Wow. One nice compliment from a women and the men feel the need to divide and conquer.

Settle down, guys. That was weird. Jeez.

The picture is about how the dog was lying on the floor by my feet, as signaled by "everything's comfy-cozy."

Titus said...

I like the pants.

They are unique and different.

Different makes life interesting.

Phil 3:14 said...

Professor,

now that you've put Cruise Ship customers in their proper place, when will you move on to critique NASCAR fans?

Ann Althouse said...

"now that you've put Cruise Ship customers in their proper place, when will you move on to critique NASCAR fans?"

Nothing is more middle class than this kind of anxiety about class. Let it go, man. There's a better life waiting out there, and it's not about this kind of fretting.

I've been rereading "Class," by Paul Fussell. Highly recommended. Not on Kindle, unfortunately.

Ann Althouse said...

"The photo angle makes the dog look like charred roast sucking pig."

LOL. You're right.

All I did was offer an observation.

And took a shot for doing so.

Baron Zemo said...

All I did was mock your fashion choices.

That is my job here.

lemondog said...

@Kyliz, dunno if it is a personal peculiarity or some emerging non-gender 3rd person plural trend. Neighbor was stymied and could not elaborate. Daughter is teen-aged.

dbp said...

He looks a bit like a black leather glove that is crumpled on the floor. The snout is the thumb and the four legs are the remaining fingers.

dbp said...

Maybe a glove for Count Rugen if the tail makes a 6th finger...

Palladian said...

Speaking of class, a lot of you could use some.

edutcher said...

Careful of what you say.

It will reflect on you.

Ann Althouse said...

I would like to wear a coat like this one worn by Helena Bonham Carter's mother.

Palladian said...

The road kill-and-crumpled garbage bag look isn't really you.

Palladian said...

I am glad, however, that we know what became of Frosty's hat.

Roadkill said...

No offense Ann, but your dog is fat. Old, perhaps, but still overweight.

I've got two labs; they are always feigning that they are hungry. But the fact is, all they need is one cup (i.e. 8 ounces) of Kibble twice a day.

Palladian said...

It is nice, though, that Tim Burton lets his wife, children and in-laws rummage through his costume trunk.

Palladian said...

When people begin a comment with "No offense..." you can be sure what follows is pure asshole.

Palladian said...

No offense, of course.

Dust Bunny Queen said...

No offense, but before I saw the feet in the photo I thought fuzzy sleeping bag or parachute.

:-D

Ann Althouse said...

Sorry, but I have to delete replies to spam along with the spam.

betamax3000 said...

Understood - thanks.

Aridog said...

Palladian said...

No offense, of course

Personally I prefer ending with ...

"Bless your heart" or "God Bless"

betamax3000 said...

Re: "Aridog said...

Palladian said...

Personally I prefer ending with

"Bless your heart" or "God Bless""

I generally use "I think I understand what you are trying to say..."

Aridog said...

betamax3000 ...

Bless your heart.

betamax3000 said...

Thank you, Aridog: that is a kind thing to say.

Saint Croix said...

Ed, it's like you're playing a character whose shtick it is to be wrong about everything. Tell me it's a joke. Please.

Althouse has never insulted me and I shudder in fear for when she takes a shot.

I'll be like, ow.

Saint Croix said...

Also, get a dog already. Quit flirting with the damn dogs. It's like you're terrified of dog commitment. Go dog! You're ready.

You can tell I went to Georgia. Go dog! Sic 'em. Woof woof woof.

kentuckyliz said...

@ Esteemed blogress: Are you re-reading it because I mentioned it? Paul Fussell Class.

My contention is what we call hipsters nowadays are what Fussell would call Class X.

Saint Croix said...

Okay, I'm calling zombie apocalypse. It's here! Zombie apocalypse! You damn stupid scientists. What the fuck, man?

Saint Croix said...

Just another reason to have a dog.

You know how fearless dogs are? You ever see the movie The Bear? Awesome movie. Anyway, there is this scene where the dogs are facing down the bear.

I'm like, "That bear is way, way bigger than you. You have no chance whatsoever with the bear."

Dog is like, "I don't give a fuck. Bring it, bear!"

And the bear is like, "Holy fuck, get off me, you damn dog."

Clyde said...

Since this is the most recent 'cafe' thread, I'll post this here rather than on the top (Preezy and Tiger) story:

Singer Mindy McCready dead at age 37

Not unsurprisingly, it was suicide; she'd had some earlier attempts that failed. It will be a big story here in the Fort Myers area, our own Greek tragedy of 'local girl makes good, then can't handle success.' It will no doubt be made into a Lifetime movie.

I beg your fucking pardon?

Rusty said...

It's best not to comment on a ladies attire unless she is dressed to impress.
