I have just informed my husband that he doesn't get to die again UNLESS I'm standing on his oxygen tube OR I'm pulling the plug.

That is all.




Come back

All is forgiven.

You can even have the negatives. I promise.



According to Doug Savage, he's counting down until Talk Like A Pirate Day on September 19th.
Be ye prepared, me mateys.


If there is one person or more on your friends list who makes your world a better place just because they exist and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.



Caused a spit-take.

Holy C-Note, Batman!

A hundred dollar pair of jeans? A kid this age shouldn't even know hundred dollar jeans exist! WTF?

Time for me to make my cuts

I've had my De-Friending Amnesty Day post up for a day and a half now. Today it closes and no more comments can be posted. Today I also make my cuts. There are two or three people who just don't seem to have any interest in what's going on here. Rather than keep up the pretense, I'm going to end it now. So, goodbye. It may take you a day or a week or a month or even longer to notice that you've been cut from my list.

I wish you well on your respective journeys.

De-Friending Amnesty Day

Yeah, I'm getting a jump on it.

Someone asked me why anyone would want to de-friend me. I said there's someone on my list who never responds to my comments, and who never comments here.

I suspect he/she never reads my entries and considers me another old fart just like his/her parents. He/she probably isn't the only one. So whether you just think we've grown apart, or you aren't really sure why you added me in the first place, now's your chance to clean up your flist a little bit by getting rid of me.

Please comment. You don't even have to give a reason, either, just say "bye" so I know to take you off my flist, too.

This post will stay open for at least 24 hours.

Oh, forgot to mention. Comments are screened. No more comments allowed.

More Pointless Edification

The Reverend William Archibald Spooner was born on today's date in 1844. The lecturer became known for what are now called 'spoonerisms
' slips of the tongue where the consonants of words are reversed. One of his flubs was issued as he officiated at a wedding: "Son, it is now kisstomary to cuss the bride."

My dear darling homies and cronies...

I am back.

Back on my own computer, which is stronger, faster, and less cluttered with forgotten images and detritus.

I am back.

Carry on.


My computer's a whore. I changed my antivirus software and as a result my computer picked up a plethora of viruses. What a hussy!

Anyway, I'll be out of the loop for a bit longer as my computer is being backed up, reformatted, and everything gets reinstalled.

To those whose birthdays I've missed, Happy Belated Birthday!

In case I'm not consistently online soon enough to catch the birthdays coming up, Happy Upcoming Birthday!

I hope to be back soon.

Trip Update.

We left about 11 am on Thursday. Made it as far as Ada, OK before having car troubles. The damn fuel pump on my truck went out (Thank heaven for AAA). We got to leave Ada on Friday at about noon (after spending almost $60 for a crappy motel room - only two towels and daylight showing on three sides of the door - no wi-fi, either, and close to $500 for the repairs) and made it to Fayetteville, AR. We hit a few shops there the following day, then we made it to Joplin, MO.

I got the biggest laugh at the hotel in Joplin, although my sister was unamused. We explained to the desk attendant that we'd like to be able to have access to our room in the easiest way possible since we had a lot of stuff to carry in. She'd originally tried to put us on the second floor and assured us there was an elevator. We got to the parking area closest to the elevator and there were no spaces. We went back to the front desk and told her of this. She assigned us a different room on the first floor and told us we could park in front where she parked and she'd get us a cart. I pulled around, carefully backed into the space, and got out of the truck. She came around the side of the building pushing a laundry basket cart. I laughed wildly for a minute or so, and kept snickering while we used it. My sister didn't laugh about it until the next day when I was on the phone telling my husband about it. He guffawed, too. She started snickering about it at that point.

In Joplin, we figured that since it was Sunday and very unlikely anything would be open, we used some time in the motel room to work on the quilt blocks we'd started on the previous stop. Our traveling got as far as the west side of St. Louis, with stops for cheese. Damn good cheese, too. Our hotel room in St. Louis doesn't pick up the wi-fi, so I'm in their lobby, updating people on what would probably be viewed as a very boring trip.

We've discovered that we've both got a big appreciation for Mark Harmon as Jethro Gibbs in NCIS, so we're making up songs and putting him in. Hey, it keeps us amused. When we got to this hotel I was so tired that I stretched out on the bed and promptly fell asleep. I think that was about 6 last night. I woke at 4:30 or so, so I slept for over 10 hours. I've also been battling this dry mouth problem that's so bad I keep a bottle of water with me at all times. If that's not feasible I try to keep a hard candy in my pocket. Right now I have neither, grrr.

Today our plan is to make it at least as far as Pontiac, IL. I've got friends there who may be able to put us up. I should probably look up their phone number and call them sometime today, huh?

More later, my lovelies.

Car wash sex act humiliated Saginaw, judge tells defendant

Jason L. Savage brought national, night-time jokester humiliation and worldwide embarrassment to the Great Lakes Bay Region by having sex with a vacuum hose in a Thomas Township car wash, Saginaw County Circuit Judge Fred L. Borchard said while scolding him at his sentencing Wednesday.

Late-night television's "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno and the "Late Show" with David Letterman poked fun at Saginaw because of him, Borchard told Savage before sending him to jail for 90 days for indecent exposure.

A Thomas Township resident saw "someone acting suspicious" at the car wash at 7362 Gratiot at 6:45 a.m. Oct. 16, authorities said. A police officer parked nearby and caught Savage in the act, investigators said.

Borchard said he's also had an inquiry from the London Globe newspaper about the incident.

"I believe you owe the community an apology for what you've done," Borchard said.

Savage, 29, said the ordeal was humiliating and "has been overwhelming." He said people stare at him, he's afraid to come out of his house and he can't find a job.

"It's been horrible," said Savage, who has agreed to undergo counseling. "I've been keeping my nose clean and staying out of trouble."

Savage, who lives at 11615 Swan Creek in Swan Creek Township, pleaded no contest, meaning he doesn't contest the prosecutor's evidence and accepts the punishment.

Saginaw defense attorney Philip A. Sturtz sought a lenient sentence, saying the humiliation is enough punishment.

"He's truly apologetic," Sturtz said.

Savage was on parole for fleeing from a police officer Oct. 14, 2004. Borchard told Savage the Department of Corrections could find he violated terms of his parole. The department was to release Savage from parole Monday, June 1.

Savage has convictions for home invasion in 1996, and possessing marijuana in a prison in 1998, court records show.


Best of all, they give his home address. Maybe there'll be a Rainbow convention at his house soon.

ETA: To hell with it. I've repeatedly tried using a cut on this. LJ won't work for me today.
