There is an issue with reaching the deadpool site at the moment. You can get there from here: http://deadpool.hookersandbooze.com/. Apologies…
Popular psychologist, columnist, and television and film personality Joyce Brothers has died. She was…
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…
Roger Ebert dead at 70 of cancer according to the Chicago Sun-Times
Seriously, I don’t get this holiday.
Why would this motivate you to drink beer and margaritas?
Well, it’s not like we need an excuse around here for that.
Have a great Sunday!
…..just want to watch the world burn.
Yes, y’all have seen it before, but I love the way the artist manages to stick it to the AGW dolts
I like Fridays around the interwebtubenets. Usually those are the days for a specific theme at several blogs. For example, our friend JohnD over at Nobody Move! has Friday Movie Quote. Last week on our Open Thread, maestro semprinin suggested that we post our favorite movie quotes. And with the amount of cinematic wordsmithery out there, this should be a piece of cake for most of y’all.
Yes, there are some people like that.
Anyway, rules are simple: everybody can post a limit of five quotes, giving the line, actor, and title.The more obscure, the better. Familiar quotes are fine, but make sure to quote correctly. None of this “Do you feel lucky, punk?” crap*. So, get started!!
*The actual quote is “You’ve got to ask yourself one question: ‘Do I feel lucky?’ Well, do ya, punk?”
Well, today’s HOTW is exceptional and not along the H&B norm, but ArmedGeek ain’t here, so here you go:
Thanks to Conservative Hideout for the inspiration
Well, it’s Sunday, and I really don’t feel like yapping about politics, so here is a poll for you:
I’m off to take the kidlets shopping for Mom Day
Today is “Drop Everything and Read” Day. I own a Nook Color, and a Nook Simpletouch, and many, many hardbacks and paperbacks. And invariably, I turn to the old fashioned book because A) I love the feel of turning the page, and 2) ruining a book in the tub is far easier on the wallet than ruining an e-reader.
Anyway, one of the favorite book memes in social sites is to pick up the book you are currently reading, and open it to a specific page, and post a specific sentence from it. So, grab your book, turn to page 96, and post the fifth sentence written. If we do this right, we will have a novel in no time.
Who knows…. it may make more sense than most of the tripe out there
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 Disney Channel. Keeping parents hostage legally for decades.
- The Stairmaster. Enough said.
- The Carebears. Ugh…
- My Little Pony. Ugh to the seventh order of magnitude.
The Good List:
- Arpanet. Every geek knows.
- Mario Bros. Ditto.

- Sally Ride and Guion Bluford. FTW in space.

It’s a fun read. Just make sure you have a tissue and some hair dye handy before reading it
Hope everyone has a nice, relaxing Sunday, and enjoy a peep show or two.
But the good kind of peep show.
Not the bad kind of peep show.
Have a wonderful day!!
Today is Good Friday in the Christian world. Not every one observes it, but I do know everyone observes Friday itself!
And yes, I am now counting the HOURS!!!
Anyway, for some of you, this day marks the end of the workweek, and the beginning of the weekend.
And I wondered, being a stay-at-home-mom-who-doesn’t-have-a-life type of gal, what y’all actually do. I mean, I know we clean house and
scream at the kids to get moving other mundane stuff, but how about y’all?
How do you unwind?
