I think it's so fun when people where their house slippers out to restaurants.

Scott said...

The clothing brand Op markets some beach shoes that look sort of like house slippers. I picked a pair up for $15.99 at Walmart. They are comfy and I wore them to work a few times.

Was looking for a book on Sarbanes-Oxley regs at B&N yesterday. Saw the title "Dark Pools & High Frequency Trading for DUMMIES" on the shelf in the Business section.

For dummies, huh. Really?

Some people, maybe just one, IDK, are putting up orange ribbons on the telephone poles in towns around the prison at Dannemora, in support of the warden who was relieved.

Yeesh! The rot went deep with that place.

This summer has been way too cold. Althouse's wish that grown men not wear shorts has been granted, at least in the Midwest.

tim in vermont said...

So if the Dukes of Hazzard has been pulled from TV Land due to the flag on the car "Genera Lee" does that mean that the song "California Girls" by Katy Perry gets pulled too, since it mentions "Daisy Duke"?

I am just wondering how far this cultural airbrushing goes in a free country where artistic freedom and freedom of speech are highly valued, supposedly.

Polygamous Montana trio applies for wedding license

That didn't take long, did it?

sydney said...

If polygamy becomes legal, which group do you expect to indulge in it first and most frequently? Celebrities, NBA basketball stars, Mormons, or Muslims?

Scott said...

Narcissistic men and needy women.

"In Italy for 30 years under the Borgias they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they had brotherly love - they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? The cuckoo clock."

@Scott- Celebrities and NBA Basketball stars, then!

Powerful men and weak women.

We are without an air conditioner this summer. With my luck I figured this would be the hottest summer ever, but so far, so good.

One is a great thinker. The other now is a pop culture whore.

You must not live in the Midwest. You'll see guys in shorts in January if we get what amounts to a "warm" spell...like high 30's.

I was out walking on Saturday. I saw a guy sweeping his driveway wearing shorts and fluffy fleecey house slippers. Well, naturally I thought of althouse (it was only a few blocks from her house!)

And yes: WAY too cold here. Wearing fleece on the bike ride into work in July? No. Yet that's what I did today so I wouldn't freeze.

Original Mike said...

"And yes: WAY too cold here."

It's been glorious.

The last time the world saw a treaty this unprecedentedly transparent, the secret parts of it were about how to divide up Poland.

mccullough said...

Curious George,

Are you a mailman in Ann Arbor, Michigan? When I lived there the mail man for the downtown and campus area always wore shorts, even in the winter. He looked a little bit like Fluff, Tiger Woods ex-caddy.

Michael K said...

"Reputedly ad-libbed by Orson Welles in the movie The Third Man (1949)"

Oh yes. I saw it and it is a terrific movie, if bit dated.

Those of you who think of the TSA as a bunch of loafing timeservers, or as officious, abusive oafs, need to think again: they're also thieves.

Today would be much nicer without the pall of smoke from Canada overhead that is robbing us of 3 or 4 degrees!

tim in vermont said...

Is this where the smoke is coming from?

And transparency. Not that it matters much right now with a full moon.

It's piping hot in Southern Germany, almost 100 degrees. Am now watering my plants, bushes, trees, rose garden morning and evening. There's no shortage of water, we're getting it straight from the river. I can't stand the heat. I'm such a clouds and 60s person. M&M, you've been around a long long time. Me too <[: *)

MadisonMan said...

@TiminVT: Yup. Alaska is also having a very extensive early burn season.

tim in vermont said...

Well it hasn't stopped raining here in a month. We got fat rain, skinny rain, sideways rain, gentle rain,thundery rain..

I would have been happy had they gotten some of it. My garden is basically drowned and the heavy clay soil is just a mess to work in.

The great thing about transsexuals: you can be fucking someone in the ass, discover the partner's errant penis, and say "I'm not gay, she's a transsexual."

You caught me.

I didn't say that first, Hugh Grant did.

Fucking Brits.

And fuck that fucking transsexual Liz Hurley.


I am Laslo.

Laslo Spatula said...

The first time me and Scarlett Johhanson were alone in a bedroom she stripped down to her panties and got under the sheets; I remember Roxette's' "She's Got The Look" was playing -- Scarlett loves eighties Swedish Pop.

Note: it is the Roxette song, not the Prince-and-Sheena Easton song "You Got the Look": that's the one with these lyrics:

You've got the look, you've got the hook
U sho'nuf do be cookin' in my book
Your face is jammin'
Your body's heck-a-slammin'
If love is good, let's get 2 rammin'
U got the look, U got the look

Which all apply to Scarlett, but that wasn't the song.

Anyway.

I put my fingers in the sensual foreplay position, only to think I FOUND A COCK!

I am naked in bed with Scarlett Johannson and there are TWO COCKS UNDER THESE SHEETS! One of those mine, throbbing, to clarify.

She then smiles and utters a breathy laugh as she pulls the yellow polyurethane dildo from the front of her panties.

So: Scarlett Johannson does NOT have a cock.

But she has a sexy sense of humor.


I am Laslo.

Wrong.

You actually couldn't be more not right; you've beaten the record Twain spoke of in regards to Fennimore Cooper.

Not that any of you fools can handle reality, which is why you insist on your damn sobriety, but Edie Brickel pummeled the shit out of lil' Paullie Simon.

Bruce thought "I can't do that... as a man."

Say lah vee.

THAT MEANS SUCH IS LIFE YOU MORONS!!!!

Think about it. Just think about it. Surpassing your mind's eye's dreams, when you get the Leaf you can get it all!

Guildofcannonballs said...

It's the Toronto Maple Leafs, fools.

Mark Steyn coulda told ya, even before (and maybe after) those fucks tried suing his ass into oblivion.

You know those fucks: they know you.

"Sanders Packs Them In"

CNN article.

Without that headline.

Is Drudge Playing God With Headlines [A]la Goebbels?

Packs whom?

Oh that's right...

THEM.

Well, count me in. An honest socialist is an obscurity rarer than some billionaire these days, after all.

All hereby intends to include the greatness of running water, heat, and, oh yeah, food abundant for all; ironically to past generations but not to ours the poor have food in abundance to the extent it hurts them physically and robs their lifespan sans the seven sins but specifically here something starting with a g a can't remember.

G.

This isn't cool at all.

Guildofcannonballs said...

Gluttony of course.

I had to look it up.

I've always known about the gaps in my knowledge and wisdom (especially the wisdom compared to my peers) but to fail to remember gluttony?

Irony again folks.

The Cracker Emcee said...

Ah, there it is. That gnawing little ache of missing Crack just got a little balm.

It's hotter than Hell in Western Washington. Usually our June's are a mix of downpours and very temperate sunshine (frequently in the same hour) but this year it's been 80's/90's the whole month and no relief in sight. It sucks. Our temperate summers are supposed to be the payoff for the eight months of rain. On the up side, my cucumbers are going apeshit.

Of course "two views" is idiotic, but idiocy can, and has been, a greater teacher than other-than-idiocy.

Whatever you do, don't start to think about Jeff Goldstein and Protein Wisdom.

That won't get you clicks or money.

What it will get you though, is, in approximation, what "How To Win Friends And Influence People" got America.

Other-than-some ratted-in tattered-out despot-orgy how's about this:

Recognition that Bill Bennett wants with his mighty intellect (fuck off Bennett that "mighty" was bullshit to feed your idiotic supporters suppositions I might not hate you and you might have some cum point other than "lock em up Statewise or Educate them Statewise or Rehab them Statewise or GODWIN GODWIN GODWIN statewise).

No answer pays Bill Bennett's bills other than statewise.

Jeff Goldstein told you this years ago, and you did what?

You paid people to tell your candidates that you are crazy rubes.

Children die therefore the second amendment must die; evil otherwise.

Statewise is the only answer and it's there in Spades, as in the Ace of Spades blog.

Statewise is the new newspeak. newsspeak.

I read, on the the shitter taking my ten minute shits, Brave New World.

What have you done?

Guildofcannonballs said...

Now as much as I dislike "establishment spend !.3 Trillion on the F-35 and spend trillions on this military and trillions on that military and oh...

You fools don't realize we live in a dangerous world....

So you can condemn from ignorance Nigal Hassen or whatever the cunt who shoots up soldiers and blame that on money because Democrats Bad.

Fuck off Hewitt.

Evil is Bad Hugh.

Not Democrats.

Get it straight.

Guildofcannonballs said...

Seeing for DECADES the evil within all Hewitt can do is beg spend more on our military to be more climate-change aware and peace-finder aware and less fucking racist aware and less capable.

But money says Hewitt.

Money is the answer.

We gotta let whatever happens happens so long as we get what we need to protect our country we love so much.

Guildofcannonballs said...

The answer is William F. Buckley.

Jr.

Of Course.

I've told you all this same thing before, without effect.

Why should it matter more now?

I care, but not now.

Uncle John's Band by the Grateful Dead is splendid, per one born on Mozart's 27th's January birth of date.
