I was out walking last night, ran in to my devoted Dem neighbor up the street. She mentioned natural gas drilling in NY state. Said a neighbor came around to ask her to sign a drilling ban petition and she told him no. She said it galls her to see people who USE natural gas and still want to ban drilling. She called him a hypocrite for taking that position. I had new respect for her. Her husband made my jaw drop a couple of weeks ago when he told me he had to go home to see Anderson Cooper’s show. I always wondered WHO watched that thing.

The Boulevardier, a cocktail popular during Prohibition, consists of two ounces of rye whiskey mixed with one ounce each of Compari and vermouth.

After success with “Arthur the Aardvark”, PBS is considering a new show: “Barry the Boulevardier”.

(Using the Anglo pronunciation, to rhyme with “queer”)

Obama the boulevardier
The Emperor, no clothes, nothing here
Won’t take a suggestion
Won’t answer a question
Perhaps at the jury voir dire

As Obama’s political career sinks not-so-slowly in the West this Fall, he’ll become the Sunset Boulevardier...

Those 2 pictures! My eyes, my eyes. I cannot get those foul images (Obumbum and Hitlery) out of my mind long enough to compose a sentance using boulevardiere. I’m ruined for the rest of the day.

For someone who beat back the unions to save their state, you are giving up too easily.

Boulevardier

I've seen these Boulevardier people about town. Pushing a shopping cart full of junk and trailing a cloud of toxic air. Yep, men about town. They even get streets named after them.

I think they’ve pretty much moved on from NY state as far as the Marcellus shale, according to my brother. They’ve already screwed themselves over up there unforch. ND is the new boom state.

Boy am I feeling like an empty-nester. This weekend xsteen is going to ocean city, NJ with her boyfriend to his family’s beach house, xsboy is going down to VA tech with his homies for the w/e. xsrisingsenior had a boy come to the house to “hang” with her. Good thing I still like my husband I guess!

We got a new neighbor with a boy the same age as my daughter. Seems nice enough, but needs a haircut the way they all do nowadays. Or maybe just a comb.

OK. George Clooney represents the epitome of a bouldevardier. Perhaps that is why he likes to hang out with Obumbum. Michelle should ahve realized long ago that to hang her hat on a boulevardier is a recipe for unhappiness. Eventually she will be left behind.
