hah, I beat Kitty again!
Yeah, what about it??? I was at a stoopit meeting. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hi, Haruko! 😀
What no catchy theme…. sigh…. Jack’s slipping!
I’m out of catchy lately 😦 UC Mishima an the Culdee he rode on, now I feel better 🙂 I miss current.
I miss Current also, but not the UN-mentionable ones you mentioned!
Congrats HH, and hey MSII
If no one saw this last night, it deserves to be replayed…. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVoCJJFuS60
I se kiwis in that.
It’s pretty clear we have a theme drought at the Realm. Blog climate change is real.
No, just in general.
Thanks to MSII for the Rush / Daily Kos link. Delicious news.
Which wine pairs with delicious news?
Ha!! Hiya, Caller!
YW! It was good to news to hear! Now if he just runs out of cock-pill advertisers maybe he’ll be driven off the air entire!
FUCK GEORGE ZIMMERMAN, the needle dicked bastard.
Hey there, Haruko.
FUCK GEORGE ZIMMERMAN
FUCK THE NRA
FUCK THEIR SUPPORTERS!
Hard without a kiss.
He’s one creepy-cracker as has been reported!
No Mr Hannity, I don’t know anything about ‘stand your ground law’.
I only got a A in the college level class.
Burn in hell GZ.
Sweet Dreams, as Kala says, just a fly by.
Happy 4th to everybody.
Love you too, man. Happy 4th!
I won’t boo you like I would her—sleep well.
Happy 4th CBD! And I’m not sure what you mean about GZ – he doesn’t lie 🙄
Happy Fourth of July. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=-IOzx3WJtkU#at=31
3rd as of now.
It’s the 4th somewheres! Hi, Jack!
The 3rd is big in Egypt.
Don’t want to sound like I’m pro-Egyptian-military, but they done good this time!
Happy Fourth of July!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NlAa6XgKCo
THEY WERE JUST MOONED!
Very good, No. 8! Pluto is the God of the Underworld.
Another article I’m too lazy to find said the band, Styx, was reveling in this.
Nix is the Goddess of the Dark, too.
Good read! Thanks, No. 8!
Did you know there was briefly a planet inside of Mercury called Vulcan. But, it turned out it wasn’t a real planet. Someone in the 1800s got fooled by his telescope.
No, I didn’t. Interesting tidbit!
Hiya, Haruko! How’s everyone doing your way? Any plans for the 4th?
Mmmm, not much. Just trying to keep the animals calm.
fireworks got them upset? I know my dog doesn’t like them one bit.
They all hate them. Grrrr….
That’s one thing I don’t look forward to. The fireworks put my animals on edge big time. My shih tzu/poo gets upset when the freakin’ phone rings if that gives you any idea. He’s really a worrywart – poor boy.
For Kahless’ sake, don’t tell Neb. He’s pretty loyal to certain Vulcans. 😉
A quick opinion based on news-filtered impressions about Egypt:
Egyptian “moderates, ie; people that just want to get along” are crossing their toes in prayer that the military still cares about them. I hope they’re right.
As do I. I’m not holding my breath though. And I don’t think we’ve heard the last from the Brotherhood, either.
It just depends on how far the military feels it has to go while trying to maintain a global reputation. It’s all or nothing land, and they have to get it right in a political minefield.
I have to say I was rather surprised by the military’s intervention on this scale and think they definitely have their own agenda – i.e. whomever is “elected” will have their stamp of approval in a big way this time around. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we all got off our duffs and marched on Capitol Hill?! We could use some of that spirit around here imo
We’ll stomp the NRA in our Birkenstocks!
You know it, Sis!
How’s you tonight?
Sure you’re correct about the brotherhood, they’ve been around a long time and are used to being on the outside, they won’t go away easily.
You know it – they really want to have a large say in the government.
Funny… I remember the days when everyone posting on HP would rush to comment on the new “main.” Tonight I commented on the new “Dexter” episode.
Hi, tg! How’s you? I haven’t started watching Dexter yet, but I’ve heard it’s a great series. What was your comment?
Early seasons were good, it’s probably good that they’re wrapping it up, getting alittle long-in-the-tooth.
I have to be in the mood for this type of show. I’m not too into the macabre — which it is right?
not entirely no, though there certainly is some element yes.
Nothing profound. Just, that two of my all-time favorite series starred Michael C. Hall… “Dexter” and “Six Feet Under.”
I think it’s time to call it day with Dexter, actually, but it’s still better than most of tv, IMO.
I loved Six Feet Under – but there was a show that really got to me and that was the woman at home alone who choked on her food and expired – jeebus — that one scared the chit out of me and scared me away for a bit! Pathetic, I know….
I remember that episode.
The mother just cracked me up. Talk about clueless.
All the different ways people would die at the beginning of the episodes, yes that was a great show.
Showtime does have some good films in their line up, too.
My last comments went to moderation days ago. I guess I could log on to see if they were eventually posted, but why.
Hi, C#8. Good question,
I posted a little benign comment on the weather thread the other night and it went to pending never to be seen again. It was like wtf?! I’m not sure how the whole mod thing works but it sometimes makes me wonder there’s someone sitting behind the keyboard saying – I don’t like that guy – pend it!
Hope I don’t bore you with my constant comments on my family tree… but had to share this.
My daughter and I were sharing that we thought we would discover someone who was tried in Salem as a witch. Well, sure enough…. not a witch, but, I guess, a warlock. Our ancestor, was accused of witchcraft and spend 6 months in prison before being acquitted.
This was all it took from your accuser to be thrown in jail:
“There appeared to me the apparition of an old gray-head man, with a great nose, which tormented me, and urged me to write in his book; and I asked him what was his name, and from whence he came, for I would complain of his; and people used to call him old father Pharaoh, and he said he was my grandfather, for my father used to call him father. I told him I would not call him grandfather, for he was a wizzard, and I would complain of him. And ever since he hath afflicted me by times, and beating me, and pinching me, and almost choaking me, and urging me continually to write in his book.”
Must have taken some strong magic to get out of that one… I dunnohh…
I didn’t know there were men accused in those trials.
You learn something every now and then.
All I really know about warlocks I learned from Bewitched. Maurice, Uncle Arthur, Dr. Bombay.
Bewitched wasn’t big on macho warlocks.
Arthur was more dom than he let on.
Me, too! I love that show!!!!!
Seriously!!!!! I thought it reasonable to assume that once accused – sayonara!
I think a lot of RW religious nuts miss the “good ole days” of Salem.
I think a lot are living them right now.
True that, C#8.
Ask a Texas teabagger if they’d like to see if Wendy Davis floats.
I just read that Wendy probably won’t be able to retain that seat with gerry mandering. What a shame. I hope she moves to a blue state and runs for Congress.
I’ve read that she’s considering a run for Governor.
I hope she runs.
Outrageous! She’s most certainly welcome here in FL! I’m sure Alan Grayson would welcome the much needed company!
Don’t they just! I seem to find myself making reference to The Handmaid’s Tale – only in that it’s a modern dystopian tale – but one I can really see manifesting itself. They certainly seem to be on track with it.
Too close to the truth for comfort.
Classy!!!! How are you?
Not too shabby, how about you?
Doing well! Got test results today and don’t need to be seen back for a bit. It’s taken a weight off! Speaking of which, I need to lose some! And on an interesting note, even though I eat fish at least 4 times per week – it’s the wrong fishy! The lowest on the EPA+DHA totem pole – who knew?!
Excellent, glad to hear good news! Get your butt out there and do some gardening, that ought to help. 😉 It’s impossible to keep up with the wisdom of the day on food choices, no?
Hell – my neighbor’s doing it all now! Actually, it’s gotten to the point where I’m feeling a little uncomfortable about it. I left the house yesterday to go to work and he was out working in my yard, cleaning up my hedges and I heard myself saying – don’t worry about the courtyard – and don’t do this – don’t touch that!! wth? Now I have a “honey do” list running in my mind! I’ve not been use to such kindness nor having a man around!
Anyways, how intriguing, tg! I think that discovery would’ve sent some chills down my spine! Maybe some of the clergy in your tree saved him?!
Hello, The Realm! What’s happening?
Hi, Haruko! You getting a break from the heat soon?
Just 94 today.
Brisk! You two ought to run up here for a few days.
Discussing witches and warlocks.
Appropriate. Hi, tg! How are you faring in the oven of the Inland Empire?
It’s cooled down some, cg.
“Cooled down,” by standards here, is in the 90s. (Everything’s relevant.)
or releative. : )
That’s still way too hot for my liking.
I hear you, cg.
How is your daughter-in-law doing, tg?
Oh… thanks for asking, cg.
She joined the family at Disneyland last Sunday, and, God love her, she was a trooper. I could tell all that walking was tough for her. She experiences a lot of joint pain…. not sure if it’s from all the meds she takes, or what. All in all, she seems better than a few months ago.
I’m really glad to hear that news! She’s been in my thoughts. So how was Disney? Do you all have other theme parks associated like we do with Epcot, Animal Kingdom, etc. here in FL? I loved those days when the kids were younger and we’d traipse down there for a visit. These days, I’d have to take out a loan to go – even as a FL resident.
Sorry. RL. You’re not cg.
It is so expensive, and the place was packed.
We don’t have anything like Epcot Center near Disneyland. There is very little available land close to the Park.
Good for her, tg. I’m glad she’s doing well enough to join you for that marathon.
Thanks, cg. It was a marathon.
We took a break for dinner… went outside the park. I was never so happy to sit down for an over-priced meal.
Did that skip for you? It did for me. Here’s better:
I live in one!!
That works for me. How’s you, Caller?
Halloo gastoo. I’m doin’ alright. Still saner than not.
Good to hear. Keep on keeping on, that’s all I can say.
Finally took in a movie last weekend…. “World War Z.”
Did you enjoy it? Is that the one with Brad Pitt?
It is. I liked it. It could have been super corny, but the way they “presented” the zombies was really pretty interesting.
Sorry, I’ve only seen the ad for it and didn’t even know there were zombies in it! I really don’t know what’s up with all of the zombie/vampire shows. I feel like I’m out of the loop!
I couldn’t be more out of the loop, RL. This was the first movie I’ve seen in a theater in months.
I haven’t been to a theater in months either. But this looks like a good one to see on the big screen!
I have a bit of a serious question. Does anyone here know that much about steroid use? Like, injecting them. And are they really injected? I’ve not done much research on it yet, but thought I would ask here, too. Why would a young man in his early 20s want to do this.
I believe they do inject them, RL.
I guess they’re willing to trade short-term gains for long-term consequences.
Thanks, tg. I guess I don’t really understand their use if one is not athletic. I’m just trying to understand a mindset here as to why someone would want to do this to their body. It’s a world I haven’t explored on a personal level.
Well… it could be for bulk, strength… just for a better bod. I think steroids are really dangerous and it’s foolish for anyone to mess with them.
C1 walked in on her boyfriend injecting them last night and it scared the shit out of her. She called me terribly upset. And I told her I would consult the Realm Advisory Council! She’s beside herself as he dismissed her concerns with being over the top and ridiculous. And he didn’t mention it to her because he knew what her reaction would be. She’s looking for some guidance here and I’m in a bit of a quandary as to what to say on the issue. If there’s any chance it could bring on a violent nature, I’ll be helping her to get out of this relationship. Just not sure what tact I should take here.
I think he has some splaining to do.
Yeah, he does! And when I said I would help her – whatever she needs – I’m there. I can’t tell her what to do, I just want her to know I’ll support her.
We have to call an extraordinary meeting of the Realm Advisory Council, and discuss this!
Maybe he just wants Bitches nipples!
Hello, fi. How’s things?
Good TG, how’s you?
Good. I have four days off, and no plans. This little break couldn’t come soon enough. I’ve been pretty busy. lately.
Still hot, which State are you in TG, I’ve prolly asked before?
I’m in California, fi, The area I live in gets hot…. not Palm Springs hot, but hot.
Last year was really bad here. I hope we aren’t in for a repeat.
Good morning, Fi!
Its the one thing I remember about the Canadian runner Ben Johnson, some commentator saying “we should have guessed he was doping, look at the Bitches nipples on him”!
Oh gawd! C1 would prolly throw up if I told her that!!!
Could be the clincher, if you want her to dump him!
No, I don’t. I just want her to be happy and if you could have heard her – she wasn’t – really broken up. sob. Of course, she wasn’t sure that’s what it was – thought maybe he was lying and it was other drugs and steroids was his excuse. He seems to be a nice young lad. Seems is the operative word here. Of course, his parents don’t know they’re living together, either. Anyways, I won’t go on about it. I’m trying to be careful not to interfere but maybe a nice dinner out and some parental advice is what this kid needs?! Walking a fine line here in FL!!! What’s new?!
Firework – Katy Perry: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGJuMBdaqIw .
Good morning, and happy tea drinking day!
Morning, Fi! What sort of tea would be appropriate for Independence Day? Perhaps a nice Oolong?
Morning pussycat, Bog standard tea for me please!
I’m with you!
One of the best 4th celebrations I ever experienced was in the UK when my dad threw a huge party and American flags were everywhere and on everything. Everyone got a kick out of it and no one said Yank, go home! It was more like, let’s do this again next year! So we did!
But, but, we were thinking it!
Yeah, riiigggghhhhttt! lmao!!!!
We’re just too polite to say anything!
Stiff upper lip and all that, eh?!!!! 😀 What a hoot!
Does C1’s fellah look like this?
OMG!!! Sad thing she’s happy with him just the way he is – he’s in great shape – and obviously, he doesn’t think so and has other things on his mind. If he doesn’t back off – I think this will be a deal breaker for her.
Happy Rwandan Independence day!
“People Get Ready: ‘Unprecedented’ Weather Glimpses Century Ahead
Latest report from WMO says first decade of century was hottest, wettest on record with more to come” (I think we’re past the point of no return with global warming. Sorry to be the pessimist.)
Oh, joy. 🙄 The high country had best prepare for the invasion.
