Pens Win in OT!
Also, here is a sweet pet pic of Lily and Thurston:
He always knows where the camera is, the little shit. Here’s Steve on the ledge next to my lazyboy peering down at me:
And finally, a new entry in the “view from your la-z-boy” genre:
And yes, those are wool socks with Teva’s and a knit blanket. Fuck you, it’s comfortble you judgmental pricks. Not to mention, someone spent a lot of time knitting that blanket just for me, so that makes it even more special. Assholes.
Also, I logged into my comcast account online and finally learned how to disable all unavailable and anonymous phone calls, as well as added a couple numbers from the Fraternal order of Police who seem to call me twice every damned day. It’s super easy. just log in and it is self explanatory.
Lily’s ass, best pillow or bestest pillow evah?
Steve is getting to be Tunch II. Does he bend light? He looks pretty regal and floofy too.
It shows that I’m out of the loop but it’s good to see that Thurston’s still there.
Steve! Happy to see him and the pups.
I will never disparage a hand knit blanket. They are the best.
Are the dogs thinking of buying Curel now?
G is out of town until tomorrow and Charlotte is slightly freaked out. I need to eat dinner, but she won’t get out of my lap.
When we took her to the vet, he immediately said, “Wow, this is a really anxious cat,” so now we try to remember to reassure her when unusual things happen. But we’re not always good at remembering to do that.
@Mnemosyne (tablet): I have one of those. Boss cat is anxious and nippy. Also too, sharp claws and not afraid to use them.
People can give you all the shit they want for wearing socks with Tevas. Still don’t look like my Uggs which I’ve started wearing this week. Gettin’ nippy at night here in N Cal.
The pics are so cute. Good to see them.
WHERE IS ROSIE!??
@Woodrowfan: In the gravitational well generated by Steve.
I just logged into my Verizon account and it does let you block anonymous callers and up to 100 numbers!
It puts the lotion on its skin.
Charlotte is nippy but, of course, only with us. She’s always very well-behaved at the vet. And, yes, she always wants to boss the other cats around, though they try to ignore her.
@Mnemosyne (tablet): Boss cat is as quiet as a mouse at the vet’s. All the cattitude is reserved for us and saintly ginger cat.
Rather late since I get up at 3:00 AM … surprised to see that Cole is still posting on BJ – thought he had given up of late … .
@redshirt: Gee, thanks. Now I’m earwormed with this.
@schrodinger’s cat: I want pics……
Get your nerd on tomorrow, along with the White House.
fuck you and assholes
who gives a shit what you wear around the house?
cute dog pic though
Ok, disabling is easy, how about if you dont actually know how to log into your account cause it was created so long ago and you never ever use the email they gave you?
@Comrade Scrutinizer: No pics, gravity is too strong.
@srv: they’re in the same box as the “whitey tapes” we kept being told were about to be released that would sink Obama…
@srv: You want to get shot by 75% of the population, including Republicans? Bring up Whitewater again.
Jim, Foolish Literalist
@Woodrowfan: If Judicial Watch is back, can Dan Burton and that heavyset boy who helped him shoot at gourds be far behind? When will we begin the deforsting of Victoria and Toensing and Joe DiGenova?
(Come on, Bryant, you’re due…)
@srv: Judicial Watch has confirmed the existence of draft indictments of Hillary Clinton drafted by Judicial Watch. Pure genius.
@srv: Whitewater? Man, the Benghazi Committee really is fucked if they right wing trolls are being forced to dredge up the oldies.
I’m getting ready for a trip downstate through the weekend. Dad is having some minor hand surgery. I’ve packed the bag and Ozzie the Cat is less than pleased. In trying to provide lap time but he’s more intent on causing havoc.
@Jim, Foolish Literalist: It will be just like those Brady Bunch reunion shows where the surviving cast members all looked old and nothing like how we remembered.
thanks for excellent petpix.
Nice to see a Stevepic. (Hi Steve!)
I freely admit that IANAL, but wouldn’t there be a statute of limitations on Whitewater by now? Didn’t it happen in the mid-1980s?
Jim, Foolish Literalist
@beltane: Ken Starr has already sent his regrets, as he’s playing Roger DeBris in a Waco community theatre staging of The Producers and doesn’t want to miss rehearsal (…two, three… kick! turn! Turn, turn, kick! turn..).
Always good to see photos of the Cole Family, Furred and Socked Division.
Way back when Steve first came to live with you, you’d rave about how he’d love all over you, purring and drooling and talking. Does he still do that?
I dont understand. What does this have to do with Paul Ryan? 11,284 DC reporters want to know.
I need to look into whether and how it’s possible to do exactly that with my ATT U-verse account. Of course, a big hole in that approach is that many unsolicited, unwanted callers use spoofed rather than anonymous or unavailable numbers – I even occasionally get calls purportedly coming from my own land-line number the call is incoming on (!) And there’s only one phone in the house that’s connected to the residual land-line we keep precisely to have a legit number to give out where such contact info is required by some entity we need to deal with but don’t want to have actually calling us up.
There’s no statute of limitations on bullshit. Especially on conservative bullshit. Mainly because bullshit is the only thing they know how to conserve.
Who needs a landline? Haven’t had one for over 10 yrs and no one has ever had a problem with this.
ETA Just remembered that I did have one for 11 months when I lived where there was no cell signal. Think I used it once.
@Mnemosyne (tablet): But the wingnut fantasy legal team has drafted indictments they want to share with us. Only then can they move on to their trial of Hillary Clinton in absentia.
Gin & Tonic
Looking like it’s over for the Cubs.
Have they released the documents proving Clinton was the masked shooter on the grassy knoll?
@efgoldman: Ozzie hopped into the bag immediately.
When I get home he’ll put on airs of ignoring me and being mad. He will cry and meow a lot but it won’t last. As soon as I’m seated on the couch he’ll be on my lap.
If they’re dredging up mouse droppings from literally the last millennium, it means they got nuttin’ and the whole goal is noise in front of some camera. Next indictment: being mean to Donna and Meghan in high school, junior year. “What a socsh!”
Aw, sweet pet pics. That is a cat who loves you.
Also, the Death Star:WTC analogy doesn’t work if you think it through.
Steve looks like the fictional Doctor Fu Manchu (stereotype) here.
I’m at a White-House-sponsored nerd meeting too, but it’s strictly us B-listers. Tyson’s Corner Hilton, no one above the rank of an OSTP policy analyst.
At least they are providing lunch and decent coffee / snacks.
ETA: One of my colleagues noted the vast sea of blue sports coats that filled the meeting room.
The French Canadian surrenders:
pathetic that after all that chest thumping from your boy, you are pinning your boy’s hopes on this nothingburger bs.
Thurston looks happy and well-behaved. I take it there’s been no more talk of giving him away.
Just wait until you get called in front of a House committee because it turns out they served you the $4 muffins instead of the $3 ones and now that entire department’s budget is being scrutinized.
Yeah, @Amir Khalid: Yeah, thought he was driving Cole nuts.
@divF: look on the bright side, I’m a gov’t funded nerd, too, and the chance of me getting invited to a WH sponsored meeting is 0 out of 0 percents. I guess that makes me a D-lister. :) Enjoy your meeting.
Is every reference to a La-Z-Boy the actual chair, or is some of that directed at Steve and Thurston?
that’s where i stopped reading.
@Eric S.: I had a cat who would turn his back to me for an entire day after I’d been gone traveling. Once I was skyping in and he did the same. My voice through the speaker phone, same.
On the other hand, when he disappeared into the woods while I was 1000 miles away, I cat-called into a public pay phone for 15 minutes while my friend at home walked through the underbrush holding up his cell on speaker. The cat finally came. The pay phone was next to the bar in a backwoods eatery near some Canadian wilderness, by the way, and not a single person looked up, or took any notice of me afterward.
@amk: You’re naive if you think it’s the other party playing games:
It’s teh White House that’s holding up that Judicial Watch FOIA request.
Uncle Joe & Hitlary are going to the mat.
Weirdest “X Files” ever. Or “Twin Peaks” lost episode, was pie involved?
Do you have a hobby? Or a cat? Get at least one.
That your video wallpaper is a picture of a bottle of skin lotion speaks volumes. :)
Actual La-Z-Boy? Or is that WV slang generic for any recliner?
(Typed while sitting quite comfortably in an honest to gosh La-Z-Boy desk chair.)
@Aleta: that’s an awesome story, and props to you and your friend.
Hey everybody, if you’re Mormon you don’t necessarily have to hate on the gheys anymore.
Next: 2.4 beer–not necessarily the work of the devil.
Hillary has taken her sendmail.cf skillz to trolling Roger Stone – but someone hasn’t filled her in on VPNs:
Obscurantism. All assertions? Never happened.
Plus it’s not a veto, it’s the frigging law.
Thanks for the pictures, JC. The critters look great. Enjoy them.
@divF: I work a couple of buildings over from there; if they weren’t feeding you I’d invite you over for lunch.
@Ruckus: Not only do I have a landline, but I have a corded phone. I use the landline regularly since I work from home and it is more convenient than a cell phone, but the corded phone only comes out when we lose power. Was a real sanity saver to be able to chat for hours without worrying a dead battery when my condo complex was without power for more than a week after Sandy.
@Mnemosyne (tablet): yeah, that’s why agency-sponsored meetings have crappy and / or expensive refreshments.
No, it’s the ‘middle ground’ as per pathetic msm. We will give you that particular right to be treated as a human but in return you will have to put up with all the bs from us, the god botherers.
@Redshift: thanks for the thought.
All of them, Katie. (Actually, the Catholics were in second, behind the Mormons.) Quite the show, that.
Uh-huh. Just as if arguing that the driver of auto X has the “right” to creep along at 20 mph on the interstate, so long as the driver of auto Y has the “right” to swoosh by doing 100.
If you are on Instagram, I highly recommend following the account foster_kittens.
That is all.
@Gin & Tonic:
I’ve been (mildly) rooting for them, but I don’t see them winning four straight.
@efgoldman: I think Prop. 8 actually planted the seeds of all this. I get the impression there was a lot of internal dissension in the Mormon Church over whether they ought to have been doing that, and the negative publicity they got in the years since they won that battle genuinely took them by surprise.
And you don’t have the guts to go full godwin, do ya? pathetic.
@srv: Hey, psst, why don’t they go after Hillary Clinton’s husband? I heard he’s been known to screw around! Why isn’t Drudge on this?
@Matt McIrvin: They didn’t even consider black people to be human until 1979. Most Mormons are decent people in their everyday interactions, and I think they still feel sheepish it took them so long to acknowledge the humanity of people who aren’t like them.
Jim, Foolish Literalist
I don’t get this
Why the hell does Boehner need a discharge petition? He’s still speaker, and either way he’s, I assume, counting on Dem votes to get things passed. That I get, but even with a discharge petition, some R’s are going to have to go on record, including him. Why not just bring it to a vote?
Your fear of nature gives cancer to reefs:
Jim, Foolish Literalist
@efgoldman: Drudge is going after Ryan, “Obama’s new ally”.
@Jim, Foolish Literalist: They’re eating their own and getting food poisoning in the process.
@Jim, Foolish Literalist:
yeah, that doesn’t make much sense to me either.
What is Kim Davis doing? Is she still in jeopardy of another contempt ruling?
I’m reading some of the recent quotes from Biden and getting a bit worried (especially the working with the Republicans bit). I think a few months ago I would have enthusiastically supported him, but now I’m really thinking it’s best if he stays out of the race. I don’t think he’s going to add anything, and the way the media will cover him and the rest of the field as a result will hurt more than it’ll help.
DOn’t be an asshole, No cat deserves that sort of threat
This is progress! It took them 120 years to agree that slavery was wrong and that blacks might be allowed in heaven.
Jim, Foolish Literalist
@BR: you’re not the only one
and me three, it’s like he’s bitter about losing a race he hasn’t entered
she slipped Jack Ruby the radioactive lung cancer stuff. (you know cigarettes)
Jim, Foolish Literalist
My take, too, a side of him I never suspected and don’t like.
All it will take is president Obama unilaterally raising the debt ceiling by executive order.
Joe Biden is a corrupt creepy authoritarian sociopath. Haven’t you people realized that yet?
Everything Joe Biden does is for the power and bank account of Joe Biden, and everyone else be damned. Ever time an innocent victims dies in a drone attack or gets his life destroyed or goes to prison unjustly, it’s like a sweet sweet strawberry in Joe Biden’s mouth.
Joe Biden delectates in suffering and personal destruction the way other people enjoy eating jellybeans.
Ain’t no statute of limitations on scandal, just ask Peggy Noonan. Or Maureen Dowd, for that matter,
I take it you’re not fond of Joe Biden.
Step-brother, many years ago now, had the same brain surgery as Biden, and instantaneously became after that someone with zero filters regarding communication, extremely diminished listening skills and an impatient doofus in social situations. Have long noticed the same tendencies in Biden.
@Amir Khalid: I don’t know where you’d get that impression.
@NotMax: And grief can do funny things to the perceptions, or affect how one puts together information for a period of time.
Biden was way off the track and into the mud during the Clarence Thomas hearings, too.
Neglected to include a marked increase in emotional suggestibilty as a post-surgery change as well.
Have never understood the source of the Biden love evinced here.
Likeability is not acumen.
Now there’s a familiar name from watching the anti-vaccination tin-hat gibberers.
If all goes well the critters will be in our new rack tonight. . .well Bohdi will sing Lil Bit has to say in her box at night!
Yeah, like “clearing statements in advance” has been part of Biden’s skill set… not just over the last seven years, but ever. Letting his mouth get in front of his superego has always been part of the Good Ol’ Joe Biden charm!
As for blocking calls, since you have VOIP, you might want to check out a nifty tool called “nomorobo” on Google. Brilliant!
