We CAN DO THIS!
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”.
He looks silly. A+++
Can’t say I have ever tried one. A+++
Yea, PBS is known for their blockbuster hits. A+++
(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.
Obama is a bull****er.
A+++ Impeachment is too good for O.
A+++ His dethroning can’t come soon enough....have an earworm now...Hit the Road Barrack, and doncha come back no more, no more...
For someone who beat back the unions to save their state, you are giving up too easily.
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.
LOL. Jonah was mocking him, I commented jokingly and the guy responded to me seriously.
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.
Omg her hair looks great there!! Proves she can do it, so why does she look like a dishrag 99% of the time???
Either j-pod or Jonah suggested that people tweet nonsense to deepak chopra to see could get a response/retweet. Good on you!
What did he say? I find his posts to be on the same level as Canseco.
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!
For sure. A+++
I am so sick of the negative nannies who try to run this state.
@DeepakChopra: No matter what the situation, remind yourself”I have a choice” “
“@JonahNRO: Falling off a roof?
@SoothingDave To tense or not?
@DeepakChopra: Yes-to welcome the inevitable or be in terror
You just had to know, if she gets her hair right she will screw something else up.
I was hoping for a Jonah retweet. ;-)
what meaningless drivel. sucked you right in, didn’t it?
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.
Empty can feel good for a short while.... ;^)
Yea, I’ve avoided him since the flat tire thing. LOL
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.
If you have to ask...
bite your tongue. I am looking forward to theTidaughter visit later this summer. Just once a year do I get my baby home.
I have to say exercise has never excited me to that point....however that moment when you say “thank God I’m finished” with the workout does feel pretty darn great.... but again, not THAT great!
Oh you are right....yours are far away. Many apologies.... mine is moving close to home next month so I’m a little dizzy with excitement!
Must be doing something wrong......
When xsbro ragged on xsboy several years ago about his long hair I pulled out HIS senior pic circa 1975. Shut him right up.
This boy just graduated from her HS and is headed to ....Syracuse U in the fall.
Ok, ladies? Anyone ever have a “coregasm”?
Empty can feel good for a short while....
I’m not looking forward to it!
Hopefully, Obama’s days as a boulevardier are numbered and he and holder become occupiers of one of America’s finest federals.
My hair’s not super short or anything. But it’s not the unkempt mop top hair in the eyes thing you see nowadays either.
I don’t see that here. Pgh could still be sporting mullets....
Who still uses combs in this day and age? Thought they went out in the early 60s ; )
A+++ We can dream big, can’t we? O and Witholder sharing a jail cell. Sounds good.
