There is an issue with reaching the deadpool site at the moment. You can get there from here: http://deadpool.hookersandbooze.com/. Apologies…

When it rains, you should expect a hurricane.
His improv was awesome, his delivery precise, and his humor extraordinary. I was one of his many fans…

Ok, I’m alright now. Anyway, Mental_floss has a list of things that turn 30 years old this year.
The Evil List:
- The Chicken McNugget. Not surprisingly, they taste 30 years old.

- The Stairmaster. Enough said.

The Good List:

It’s a fun read. Just make sure you have a tissue and some hair dye handy before reading it
This morning I was drinking my coffee in preparation for Lent Friday. It tasted a bit off, which made me pause. Why?? WHY WOULD THIS HAPPEN ON A DAY I CAN’T EAT???
Oh, right…. I forgot to measure for the Keurig™ filter correctly.
I hate that. Anyway, it got me thinking about our senses.
If I had to live without one, I would choose smell. Why? Because February is skunk mating season.
Which one can you live without??

A conversation at work last night reminded me of this …
Last night I was having trouble sleeping after being twisted like a pretzel at therapy, so I stayed up to watch a sorta sci fi flick called Python. Look, it had William Zabka and Casper van Dien in it. Stop judging me!! Anyway, after it was over I happened to glance at the time, and saw that it was after midnight. That had me thinking about the heightened security the schools were going to be enjoying, and the sandwich board-wearing peeps walking around, and Nazca Lines, and Chariots of the Gods. I knew it was time for me to take a muscle relaxer and call it a night.
And then I woke up this morning.
And what did y’all think would, or still might happen??
At least, for some of us today!!
Still, not as awesome for y’all as March 14th, but good enough to tide y’all until then.
Hope y’all enjoy the liberation
I’m busy. Have more funny.
Have a good one!!!
Well, here’s the flip side to the Open Thread from two weeks back.
Personally, I don’t think any of you will ever be afforded this opportunity, but in the miniscule chance I may be a teeny, tiny bit wrong…
Who are the three people you wouldn’t piss on in Hell?? And yes, I did mean “wouldn’t”. Because if you DID piss on them, you would be doing them a favor now, right??
You know when you have to go look something up on the computer, like pay bills or look up a map, or maybe search for a local seamstress because you bought a really pretty maxi dress but you are so short that it falls six inches past your feet and you are tired of looking at it hanging from the highest point in your closet, and three hours later, you’re still on the computer playing a game or socializing? Well, maybe not the dress scenario. But I’m sure y’all have fallen in the time sucker trap.
For me, the worst is Wikipedia™. Why? Because I actually look for errors. I never report them, though. I just laugh, or rather cry at the pathetic editing done there. One HUGE error I found was citing Elizabeth II, (you know, the one who jumped out of a helicopter) as the daughter of Henry VIII!!!! It has been corrected, but c’mon!! Elizabeth I only jumped explorers. Sheesh…
So what internet time sucker do you have to slay every day??
Hey, I’m on vacation, hauling big ass carp from a second storey balcony and drinking aloe for the sunburn.
Topic for today is….. favorite James Bond flick, and why.
Also, favorite Bond Girl name and why. Pussy Galore wins first place, but y’all can supply suggestions for second
Yes, I know the quote. Julius is a favorite character of mine. A few days ago, Lemur King wrote a rather nice post about the English language. As y’all probably know, it’s a particular peeve of mine. Ok, I have a Jones when it comes to it. Fine…FINE!!! One thing I really, REALLY can’t stand is textese. I see that at social sites and blogs. Seriously, can’t people take the time to spell out a word? My kids are very good about not using textese when sending a text. They are hardliners about grammar and spelling.
But if I had to pick the worse offense, I would have to pick grammar.
I can deal with typing mistakes. I cannot deal with grammatical mistakes.
And I am not the most rabid about this, either. An H&B chat friend named Grammar Czar makes me look like a piker. Still, I have been known to correct people on that social-site-with-faces. Several called me a nazi --ZOMG!!-- but that just meant I won the argument.
Do these errors set you off??
