Reading the comments to the previous thread I was quickly reminded what a bunch of cynical pricks you all are. Here’s a picture of my cat giving you the cold shoulder:
From the looks of it, there’s about 14 shoulders in there.

He is awesome. I still miss Tunch. How is Lily?
I like Jed Purdy. He grew up home schooled in our neibirhood in chareleston in the 1990s. We were proud when published his first book.
Serves us right. Being punished by being made to look at a beautiful creature. How could you be so mean, John?
Those shoulders look mighty warm.
A lot of us aren’t cynical; we are actually the opposite and get bitchy with you when you post cynical/pessimistic shit. Cole, you are obviously a good person. Better than I am. But I really don’t trust your political judgement. Especially your first takes.
Cynical pricks? Nah. We’ve been burned [sic] before and won’t get fooled again.
Didn’t one of your tweets a few days ago say that you were taking him in to get shaved? Is that still coming, or were you being snarky or something? (Twitter is horrible for actual expressing ideas clearly…)
Our dog Ellie (~ 18 mo old) has mats behind her ears that need to be cut off, but she won’t hold still long enough for it to be done. She’ll probably have them another 2-3 years at this rate. :-/
If 130K to stormy doesn’t float your boat, how about 774K?
I am the Lord thy Cat. Thou shalt not have false cats before me.
Now, where’s my treats? Food bowl is EMPTY, primate! You’re cruising for a wrath of cat event… oh, wait, that’s just where I wanted to have my neck rubbed… We’ll discuss this later – around 2AM
We had to take our cat Annie in for a lion cut last weekend because her mats got really bad when she was sick earlier in the year. (She’s much better now, but the mats were beyond her mad grooming skillz.)
She finally deigned to sit on the back of the couch with me last night, 5 days later. ?
My Chenielle has a skin infection – little bumps that she keeps bothering until the spot goes bald. The vet said that they were a flea allergy, and they’ve erupted again because I could not get the full tube of repellent on her. It’s so hard to haul her to the vet, so I found one that makes house calls. I brought in the old cat carrier for her to get used to, but she has refused to come near me since. I put treats in it and she eats them when I am outside or in the far end of the house.

Here is my cat giving me… something. Maybe he’s still mad about the bow tie.
Cohen, the fixer, is just a cornucopia of surprises. I really hope that Mueller can get this guy to flip on Trump. And Sean Hannity, too.
ETA. Love the cat with the attitude.
Hannity will never flip.
Oh, wait, that’s not what you meant. (And besides, I bet Hannity would flip if he thought he could get an advantage from doing so.)
Yeah. Sorry for being unclear. I’m wondering what kind of dirt might be found if you dig into Hannity’s real estate empire, and why did he need advice from Cohen.
Maybe he, too, has a few mistresses tucked away whom he’d like to keep secret from the public, each other, and his wife (Hannity is married). Trump probably gave Hannity the referral to Cohen.
For a kickback
For gosh sake’s, turn on the a/c before your cat melts completely.
Inevitably raises the question of what else he “fixed.”
Before Memorial Day? Never happen.
Below the Mason-Dixon line, believe the etiquette is not before Kentucky Derby day. That’s tomorrow, close enough to get away with it.
Last I heard, WV was above the M-D line.
I don’t know anything about Hannity’s personal life, but who knows? This could be part of it.
@efgoldman: I’m just glad the book had a talking dog.
Ya done heered wrong then, son.
@NotMax: Bad day with misunrembered facts. Hope I’m not turning into a Republiklown

@Omnes Omnibus: what’d Cole do now?
@NotMax: John lives in that sticky uppy part.
Per the Brittanica, that’s still below.
@Major Major Major Major: I didn’t say he did anything.
A little tip for Southern California insomniacs and early risers. The launch of a rocket from Vandenberg carrying a Mars explorer may be visible Saturday morning, at 4:05 am. Apparently, this is the first launch of a Mars bound craft from California.
Some details here.
This afternoon the guy in front of me at the supermarket checkout put a giant bag of sugar on the conveyor belt, probably a 25 pound bag. He told the checker it would all be gone by tomorrow because he was making simple syrup to use for mint juleps for his Kentucky Derby party. He must be having a lot of people over.
@NotMax: Of course WV didn’t exist until the concept of the Mason Dixon line was moot.
Got a comment stuck in moderation. Just wanted to note that the launch of a Mars bound spacecraft may be visible in Southern California, Saturday morning at 4 am. Check news sites for details.
It’s a cat. They only have cold shoulders.
There’s a lot of Russian money being laundered via real estate.
Jeeze Louise, the bourbon shelves must be bare for miles around.
@NotMax: Kentucky Derby on Cinco De Mayo.
Funny because Cinco De Mayo is really just a US celebration.
Yep. It would be wild if Hannity was up to his neck in this sort of thing.
@NotMax: Yeah, no kidding. He didn’t have a whole lot else in the cart. Some fizzy water, a few food items and this giant bag of sugar. It’s gonna be a helluva party.
@Davebo: Mint margarita sounds like a cousin to a mojito. I’ll take the mojito.
Steve is so big ??
@Brachiator: He is up to his neck in it. Looking forward to it all coming out.
Couple of drops of hot sauce in the margarita.
Not at all a fan of the taste of mint. An alternative sweet bourbon-based sippin’ beverage in which the mint is much less prevalent, sublimated by the ginger.
@Yarrow: Love Margaritas and Mojitos but totally different critters. Rum >= Tequilla.
@NotMax: You lost me at “sweet bourbon”. But then I’m a scotch drinker.
Most unbalanced shopping cart I ever saw was the time I was behind someone buying ten ten-pound packages of ground beef. And nothing else. At Whole Foods, no less.
Why would anyone buy 100 pounds of hamburger at nearly $10/pound and nothing to go with it?
@Davebo: I’m aware they are different. But who the hell puts mint in a margarita? If it’s going to be mint and lime, I’d rather have a mojito.
$10 per pound? That can’t be right.
Shh!! Don’t tell the self-fucking ignorant fucks of that state who fly confederate flags and voted for trump. Or they might do something REALLY stupid like elect a scumbag who murdered their family members in his coal mines to be their senator.
@dmsilev: That’s insane. I guess they could have been assigned it for a party or something. A friend of mine got invited to some Scandinavian day long “brunch” and got assigned to bring a specific kind of bread found at only two stores. There were going to be something like 50 people there, so I would guess her shopping cart looked really odd as well as she hit the checkout with a bunch of loaves of this one kind of bread and not much else.
@Yarrow: How many people would 100 pounds of meat serve? Maybe one or two hundred? Big event.
Well, I’m a little shy of 200lbs these days but I could probably serve 6 to 8 or so people at the event?
Whole Ripoff? Of course it can.
A pack of very large dogs? Tigers on the back 40? The local coyote population?
@Corner Stone: What fraction of you is edible? If you could let me know ASAP, that’s be quite helpful, so I know how many side dishes we’ll need.
@dmsilev: McDonald’s big hamburger is a Royale with cheese, which weighs a bit over 100 grams. ~45 kg of hamburger at 100 grams would get you 450 burgers.
@dmsilev: I actually meant…uhhh…service 6 to 8…so, yeah.
@Brachiator: I’ll set up the cameras.
@efgoldman: In the early ’80s, while hiking in the Hollywood Hills, I met a guy who had a white cardboard box w/ 12 or 24 patties in it; he said he was feeding the local coyotes to keep them from eating pets. I hope he paid restaurant wholesale prices.
@Major Major Major Major:
Your gray cat and my gray cat look the same! Our cat is a girl, though, and we named her Gracie, ’cause she’s gray, see? (you have to say it like Edward G Robinson).
Set, a bar has. Strive, we will.
