The campaign, that has maundered along this summer, has finally taken an interesting turn with Obama on the ropes. All the Bain attack ads got no traction, now Obama is actually attempting to defend himself. Laughable.

nobama, the world’s numero uno, best, absolutely gold standard example of a lifetime of maundering.

And we’re not talking about just your garden variety maundering. No, this is heuristic maundering!

We have got to stop this sleeping in...

Are you suggesting that some FReepers have succumbed to the lure of the entitlement state? Have some of fallen for the maunderings of BHO, Crazy Joe Biden, Louise Lucas, Mayor Doomberg? God forbid.

OK -- back to planning my next trip to Chick-Fil-A.

As Obama's popularity continues to wane, maunder he must.

Anyone catch the pun?



Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

Every time the Incompetent-in-Chief maunders from his teleprompter, we learn a little more about how he sees this nation, and his “takes a village” philosophy.

I wonder if the those handlers
On Obama’s team ever ponder
The way an absent teleprompter
Causes their prince to maunder?

Into the looking glass, darkly
He searches for an inspiration-
Stokes class warfare, then exits-
Must be time for another vacation

And nothing is enough to dispel
His snooty self-important haze-
I just hope he stays in it
For the next hundred-plus days

The term is “liming,” not “lollygagging”. And that’s coming to an end. Flying home tomorrow. Absolutely nothing going on here. Not ready. Workers stopping. Accidents happening.

Another 4.5 hour layover in IAH tomorrow.

Thank you for that kind thought-beginning at about 14, I spent a great deal of time pouting and envying the curves of my fellow females-it has only been in the last 10 or so years that I appreciate that time deals reasonably well with the wiry, less feminine form. But I certainly didn’t feel that way when I was young, and I still have curve envy...

And my refrigerator has decided to suddenly quit-it is likely either the auto defrost switch, or the compressor, but it shouldn’t be happening at all, given the fridge is only 8 yrs old.

One of my neighbors dabbles in appliance repair, and he’s coming to look at it tomorrow-I’ve moved everything into the big freezer and the tiny little travel fridge I used to keep upstairs, but I’m not a happy camper at all-and I can’t afford another fridge at all, either, thanks to the lack of work.

There’s a lot to be said for not sagging! I turn 56 tomorrow, so I’m more conscious of visible signs of aging than heretofore. I am using some good quality high SPF sunscreen on my face and am concentrating more on trying to tan my legs than my upper body. Decided that looking tan is less desirable at this point than looking relatively youthful for my age. I’m looking forward to the massage I have scheduled for tomorrow. Xshub asked if I asked for a male or female! Of course I asked for a female! Though we were wondering what lesbians prefer, I’m betting they prefer males. He said why woukd they want a male if they’re gay? I said well that presupposes that bc I’m not gay I want a man? I think you’d want the opposite.

Hopefully it’s something relatively minor/easy to fix. Ours is about 14 yrs old and knock wood other than the ice maker malfunctioning and requiring repair its been ok. At this point stuff is going to start to go. Xshub wants to replace one of the A/C systems (we have a bifurcated system one cools upstairs, the other the rest).

Well, maybe closer to 40 or 50-and it is all in the individual perspective-I was still into body envy at 30. I wear the same size as I did at 30-I’m harder and weigh a few lbs less from physical work for the last 10 years. Guys don’t look at me any differently, and they still look at my buxom fellow females first but it doesn’t bother me like it used to-I’ve come to appreciate myself more.

That would require people to live in reality. And this is a govt oil company.

It’s hard to predict when the plant operators will decide not to work in protest.

And there was a fatality here this week, so that puts an even bigger stop to activities.

They want someone to return next week, but I think they’re dreraming. Doesn’t mean I won’t send one of my guys.

I agree-I’d prefer a female as well-there is just something unprofessional about a male touching a female’s unclothed body unless it is sexual, and a regulation massage isn’t supposed to be sexual-am I the only one who remembers that movie “Full Body Massage”? Not exactly regulation...

I get an overseas bonus, 25% of my salary for every hour worked or traveling. There is hazard pay of 40%, but I’ve never gotten that.

That would be for either sea platform work or somewhere where you needed armed guards like Yemen.

I’m the boss now. I’m only here because of my guys’ vacations. I was leaving Monday regardless for meetings I need to be at.

My #1 guy has his passport at a consulate. I’ll send him here if that comes back in the next few days.

I’ve got another guy in Chile. He showed up and his hard drive crapped out.

When did they start making blonde Greeks?

That’s almost as disconcerting as the white people here with the island accent. You get this interesting combination of Welsh or Irish lilting and island. Depending on what you focus on, you either pick up one or the other.

So a man touching a woman in a sexual manner is “professional?”. ;-)

Also, insert George Costanza “I think it moved” here.

Xsbaby’s fave HS teacher isn’t coming back next year bc his wife works for a defense contractor and I guess they are going for the big bucks. They are goingto Jordan. I’m pretty appalled bc they have a baby who was born this past spring. He’s a former Marine, but the infant would def give me pause.

Yemen? That is hardly even worth considering.

In the late 80’s I worked for a shipping/moving company that did primarily OS relocations for military and oil co’s-the assistant manager was the worst jerk imaginable. From the drivers to the dispatchers, we discussed fantasies we had about drugging him, putting him in an OS crate and shippimg him to someplace where he wouldn’t get back soon because he didn’t speak the language. We decided on Yemen after much discussion, and even gave everyone a part to play in his forced vacation.

We came very close to actually doing the deed, but one of the drivers reminded us that we were planning a very real crime. We felt bad for awhile after that, because he died several months later of a brain tumor...

My wife would never deal with a foreign thing, even a safe thing like Japan. (Our parent is Japanese).

Heck, moving out of Pittsburgh would be almost unthinkable. You know how we are. ;-).

My former boss, still with the company but not my supervisor now, lived in Brazil and Saudi at one time. He had a perfect description of working in Saudi:

He said when you show up in Saudi you are given two buckets. One fills up with $, one with crap. When you’ve had enough of one or the other, you leave.
