Had the Ills (Bill and Jill) over for tacos and salsa, and before I knew it, there were 10 people over. They all went out to the bar, but I opted out tonight and told them to pick up eggs and vegetable oil so I could make some breakfast in a couple hours when they come back and inevitably beat on my door. That’s how we roll in this town of mine- it’s never rude to come late, but it is rude to be without supplies. I like it that way. Party music:
Think I might make a killer souffle and some hash browns for the drunks. What are you party people up to?
Watching Mizzou-ASU on ESPN. What strikes me is that college football is a billion-dollar industry, but they apparently can’t afford working microphones for the referees.
getting ready to turn off the light on go to bed
a party song for you before I turn in
@Spaghetti Lee: The NHL seems to have the same weird problem.
Party people? Hahaha! Sitting in bed with teh kittehs reading blogs on my iPad. Here’s some news…31 million watched Obama’s speech last night.
@Comrade Kevin: NFL, too. Strange, that.

Would I be reading blogs if there was a party to go to? Egad, I have to revive a life. Maybe if we get another power failure for the third time this week I can find something more interesting …
Not that I don’t find all of your comments fascinating, fellow BJers.
Notice how bored the Republican leadership was last night?
That’s cause they’re sick of listening to a lame duck President in the last throes of his dying, decrepit administration. They’re tired of having to pretend to take him seriously. Rick Perry is 14 months away…
actually, the republicans are doomed. they’re just too stupid. they really could have the white house, but they’ll spend the next year saying social security must go and war is always awesome. even the bitter olds will abandon them. they’re sadly, though not all that sadly, doomed.
plus they’ll nominate a mormon, and then the south will get all pissy and lose interest.
Having a nightcap and catching up on today’s threads before turning in. I worked a rare day shift today, came home and crashed from about 7:00 to 11:30. I hope to be able to get back to sleep, because I have another day shift tomorrow. But then my weekend! Yee-haw.

WHY ARE ALL THESE NAKED WOMEN GRABBING MY PRIVATE AREAS?

I used to have that same hallucination, but since I’ve been taking my meds regularly, it’s gone away.
OK, I’ll be honest, it’s really since I quit taking those Other Meds.

@Steeplejack: Hey, Steepman. Good to see ya. I’m trying to adjust my sleep schedule to be more diurnal. It ain’t easy. Glad you have a weekend coming up.
A gentleman’s pedicure while waiting for the exfoliating mask to set.
God damn it, now I want hash browns.
Do I still have time to get drunk and get to WV?
there’s always time to get drunk and head to WV.
@Little Boots: That’s why they’ll make Perry VP candidate. That way he gets to play Sarah Palin. He’s dumb enough, though at least he can string together intelligible English sentences most of the time.
Drying out my basement because my moron neighbors sent water under the party (not the fun kind) wall. Again. Assholes.
you may be right, although they may hate each other so intensely by then it might just look so wrong.
“The Ills” + Beasties and no mention of “What’s the time? It’s time to get ill”? These days no one remembers the classics.
At work, trying half-heartedly to un-fuck something that no one cares about, and feeling like an Overlord cuz my Pandora has Yardbirds, Little Feat, Son Volt, Steve Earle, Replacements, and Warren Zevon stations.
Long time no see, girl. I have been dealt some crazy work schedules the past few weeks. Plus it has been kind of crazy around here lately, so, like you, I have
checked outstepped back a bit.
I hear you are in love. Any resemblance to Alan Rickman?
ETA: Might try to get to bed soon. But I’ll check back in the morning if I miss you.
@Steeplejack: I heard that. I’ve been staying out of most of the brouhaha myself.
Oh, Steepman, you know there ain’t nobody like Alan Rickman! But yes, I am passionately fond of a certain Cannuckistani.
I hope you can get some sleep; I’m going to try to get some myself pretty soon.
Why did the names Frank and Fanny Farkel come into my mind?
I never thought I’d be this old.
Watchin’ Ghost Writer with a nice Murphy Goode Cab. Sweetie just fell asleep beside me on the couch. Dog happy inside, cat–a convert to the porch–snoozin’ outside. This will not stand…
Don’t forget the twins, Simon and Gar Farkle!
@Little Boots: Perry has two main functions in this part of the race: (1) marginalize Bachmann and Paul and (2) allow Romney to appear moderate by contrast. Perry will be added to the ticket then to ensure that the tea partiers and evangelicals show up at the polls. This seems to be the plan and the performances at the debate confirmed it to me. On the other hand it could all fall apart if the tea party contingent actually ends up being too strong in the primaries, in which case Perry may still quite plausibly take the nomination.
Something happen last night? The trolls are all waddling around like they got a big dose of the brown note.
Got my feet up resting from an afternoon of walking all over the neighbourhood delivering election signs for next month’s provincial election, and nursing a sore hand after a neighbourhood kitty bit me.
Reality Dreck’s not here yet.
Oh. Thanks. I guess.

@Reality Check: Actually, Rick Perry is four hours away by car. As I drove past the newest fire in Hunt County, TX, I remembered Perry signing a bill cutting funding for volunteer firefighters from $30Million to $7Million because my wife told me that it was all volunteers from 4 towns fighting the fire. It was within a mile of the nearby High School. You’ll love Perry: If you give him enough money, he’ll let you do him in the ass and light the country on fire at the same time.
Was listening to Almost Blue and had a brainflash: The next time DougJ writes about some annoying winger politician, he should title the post “I Can’t Drink Enough to Get You Off My Mind.”
Dude, don’t make a souffle or hashbrowns. You’ll regret it, and as the only sober person, you’ll be on cleanup duty. Drunks and heavy/oily food just don’t mix.
Thank you. And the neighbor, Ferd Berfle.
And little Sparkle Farkle!
Siesta time in Granada Spain
So your house is like a bed and breakfast, except you don’t charge for your services.
@Reality Check: Yeah. If that asshat can get elected, he’ll make Obama, W, Cleveland and even Ronnie the Demented look like our greatest Presidents ever…
