That's gorgeous, Madame.

What type of flower, if I may ask?

PS Sarah Palin on Syria, "Let Allah sort it out".

Tim said...

Day 4295 since 9-11.

Quiet day, as the NSA could tell you, or would tell you , if they could.

A few comments here; put some furniture up for sale on Craigslist, texted some buds while at Total Wine buying tequila and Cointreau for margaritas, exchanged a few emails, some on my work account. Cruised a few internet sites. Some suspect in the eyes of the IRS, no doubt, given their sensitivities toward the Tea Party.

Otherwise, 4,295 days without contact with any al Qaeda or other anti-American terrorists. I don't think that will change tomorrow, or the next day, or next week, next year or next decade, but the NSA watches, still.

Hi Guys!

Go Fuck Off!

Pitch perfect!

People keeping up with what is going on in Turkey? You won't hear anything from the media.

I agree. She comes up with these perfect one liners.

Unfortunately, we have CiC who feels he needs to express his muslim boner fides, so he must take a stand.

I saw a bobcat while driving home this evening. Bigger than I expected.

edutcher said...

So are a lot of things these days.

NSA listening to domestic phone calls without warrants?

El Pollo Raylan said...

Maybe that's why he had the IRS target, infiltrate, and harass Christian churches.

But the mosques are sacrosanct.

Have a t.v.? They're running a Well's Fargo commercial that begins with a man and a woman walking on the sidewalk toward the camera, urban scene, both are carrying groceries and the greens in the guys bag are hanging out limply like totally 100% wilted, I don't know, something that should be bushy like Swiss chard and it looks like limp dishrags hanging out of the bag like they were shooting the commercial all day and nobody thought of how disgusting the vegetables look and when you see them you go, "Ewwwwwwwwwwww."

Chip Ahoy said...

With the sourdough pet you must feed it regularly to keep it fit and discard it regularly as well to keep it in line, but instead of tossing some each feeding you can do things with it like pretzels, tortillas and little loaves and such while the possibilities are worked out with the particular culture. It does not behave as forgivingly as regular bread dough does from single-organism type commercial yeast. So little experiments then along the way as the culture is developed to full ferocity with what would otherwise be discarded portions.

It did show the best way to go is wet dough into rocket hot closed clay cloche. But that precludes shaping the loaf. Doughs that wet preclude reasonable shaping, you just have to deal with what you get because it's like a wet sticky unwieldy gelatinous sack and the temperature of things around you is 500F. Best to wear shoes.

And in other reality TV show star news, Kim Kardashian had a baby today. Any news on what the people from the last season of Survivor are up to?

Fucking media which made Obama from nothing broke Palin who did have something to offer. It is a surprise and credit to her strength that she is still standing where she is. People like you are too stupid to understand.

somefeller said...

It's no surprise. The Reality TV market is booming and she is attractive to a certain audience, not unlike Kim Kardashian and the people on Buckwild. She's a natural star that way, especially as long as she stays on the good side of Roger Ailes.

People like you are too stupid to understand.

I know. Sarah Palin's genius is beyond the understanding of so many of us. She's like Esther. Or Job. Or Esther if she had a Reality TV Job.

They haven't broken her. She gave a big speech tonight and has called out Choom on this idiotic Syria thing. She's alive and well and raising Hell.

As Burl Ives said to Charles Bickford (paraphrase), "She's stuck in their craw and they can't spit her out."

She's a lot shrewder than the Baghdad Bob of Althouse would like to admit. Smarter than him in all probability.

She's done more to turn the public against BarryCare than anyone else, including the Silver Haired Angel of Death. and it's one of the things that's turning the country against him.

That's why he has to throw some snark her way

I pity you and your ilk and I am not even a fan or supporter of Palin. Intellectual honesty and objectivity are concepts alien to you, it looks like.

Funny, you sure sound like a fan or supporter of Palin. It's okay, you can admit it. America is a big country with room for all kinds of people. Like latter-day Palin fans and Bronies.

Intellectual honesty and objectivity are concepts alien to you, it looks like.

This line is funny when you realize it's linked to Sarah Palin. And it's even funnier when you think of it said using the voice of Yoda.

Anyway, nothing wrong with fandom. It keeps the entertainment industry up, running and job creating.

yeah, I should have said, they tried to break.. but still her electoral prospects look dim right now. Party elites on both sides and the media are the gatekeepers and there are enough low information voters to keep them in business.

Lem said...

Has anybody seen On The Ice (2012)?

I'm striking out on Netflix all too often these days.

I start to watch something that's supposedly good and about a half hour into it, it fails to hold my interest.

On The Ice looks good.

She's been rehired by Fox News, she's contemplating a Senate run, and all these scandals make someone like her look a whole lot better than most of the slugs in DC.

I think she's made for better things than the Senate; make her chair of the RNC and give her a chance to clean out things.

Take a look at this and smile.

Problem for Palin is not just the Dem media, it is the Bush clan and a lot of other Republicans. Sure she seems to have people support but there is not much support from the establishment (whatever that means) guys.

edutcher said...

As I said in another post, the RINOs (and sad to say, that has come to include George and Barbara Bush) have pretty much gone over to the Demos to try to stop the Tea Party, that's how desperate they are.

Problem is with that, these scandals will probably end up tarring the DC crowd, including a lot of Republicans. And the public is going to want someone to clean up the mess when things really get bad and I think Miss Sarah's going to be one of the beneficiaries of that.

That is one strong woman, a self-made woman unlike Moochelle or Hillary! or most of the other "feminists" out there.

Her story isn't over yet

It seems to me that Peter King, a member of Congress and all that, should not be talking about individual people pooping.

There is a name for liberals' affliction: Pathological Altruism. Cure BTW, is not more Obama phone.

traditionalguy said...

We saw The Great Gatsby (2013 version in 3D) tonight.

One of the kids had warned us that they did not like it, and the 1973 version with Robert Redford was better.

That was totally wrong. This is the first version of Gatsby that gets it. The story of Gatsby's personality is the central part of the story. It is not a Love Story. It is a story about a good common man trapped and killed by young love and dreams of a good family into the selfish web of some rich folks.

The cars roared too much through traffic and the Gatsby parties were too far over the top, but can be forgiven as a way to sell it to the young folks in the trailers. But Actors are very good, and the story told by the film does an excellent job of following Fitzgerald's genius.

Netflix: Behind the Burly-Q.

A history of burlesque. Starring Alan Alda(!), among others.

All I got out if it is, 'life is really weird and sad sometimes.'
I gather that wasn't the intent, if there was one.

The Rabbit Box
Joseph Pintauro

when you were
cruel,
she lowered her
eyes till
you said something
nice.

when you lied,
she blushed a little
& looked out the
window.
she trusted you.
Knowing you were
not as good
as you seemed.
she was often bored.
always rightly so,
her silence had no
fear in it.
her silence
was right.

she expected
nothing
but craziness
from us all.

when we were
sweet
she liked us

when we landed
on the moon
she laughed,

when we
killed the earth
she just
smiled a little
&
died
with it.

Off Insta:

Feds have been directly tapping fiber optic Internet cables, copies data as it enters and leaves the US.

Point of interest:

Story was written and researched by AP. The same AP that had its phone records seized.

Google translate auto-recognizes "moving van" as Afrikaans, probably spotting the Dutch influence.

Robert Cook said...

"There are people who think The Great Gatsby is a love story?"

There are many people who think a story is only about the plot: the surface events. They don't see subtext, they don't understand the "unreliable narrator," and they see only what they're prepared to see.

This is why a good book rewards rereading, as it will be a different book each time according to who we are when we read it a second multiple times.
