A+++ and don’t believe Breitbart.com’s account that the fool in question was BOOed at the Elite 8 game in DC on Saturday. xsboy and his friend were there and while they were booing, the predominant sound was cheers. xsboy was pretty astounded by that.

Fatuous

I’ll take door number two, Alex, “imaginary, illusion”. I went to the Dr. and he said I was fat. No says I, I’m fatuous, an illusion, just like the illusion I will pay your bill.

also known as HALUPKI, GALUMPKI, you know with the cyrillic alphabet, there are diff spellings. and people pronounce the stuff lots of diff ways. am thinking that’s camle’s bastardized version of stuffed cabbage.

I wasn't aware of it right away but apparently Pope Francis caused a great deal of consternation on Holy Thursday by including in the footwashing ritual, 2 girls and 2 muslims. I have read of it subsequently, and it makes me a bit uneasy about him. I had never attended a footwashing ceremony on Holy Thursday that i can recall, until last Thursday when Holy Rosary included it and it was the Mass said for my FIL, where i did the readings and xshub was one of the twelve apostles for the footwashing by the priest.

My Ukranian background was too far removed.... no grandmother to cook for me so I got “stuffed cabbage” instead. ;^)

mom called them glumpkeys, but never did get the hang of making them... my ex could - only thing she died right. but shed’ only make them once a year for christmas, and i could only have one....
now the grocery store down the street has them, but big Y across town has better.
i have a friend who makes them even better... she gave me a dozen or so a while back, and i just ran dry...

It is 73 here, and cloudy-there is supposed to be a cool front and rain on the way...

Obama and his worshippers
Repeat his fatuous nonsense
Showing all but the acolytes
That they have no conscience

The unwashed masses watch as
The first kids fly off to ski-
I guess they think jet fuel
Gets into the plane for free

I guess you can’t fix stupid,
So at the risk of being rude-
Someone please just shake them
Till they see we’re being screwed...

I’ve never seen a foot washing ceremony, only read about it. But I was appalled to read about the rogue sermon of the pastor where Obama went to Easter services. Does that man send capos with money to bribe ministers and priests to preach apostacy when he goes to their churches? God must be pissed off by now...

...damn dentists....was out to breakfast, felt a loose tooth two over from my problem tooth and dang if she didn’t pull it out this morning...I need an implant now. Not even the tooth from last week. Not too painful, though. I got there and their appointment didn’t show so they set upon my mouth and it was gone in a few minutes. Cracked right apart. Dear God....this is creepy.

That is weird-I’ve known people who’ve cracked teeth, but it was after biting down on something really hard either by accident or design.

Today I am just thinking pull all the damn teeth and give me all new ones so my smile is decent. 12 is towards the front. Still numb or I would go fake smile in a mirror and see how bad it looks. No way I want to smile for real....just not feeling it.

I am predicting the SCOTUS will effectively legalize gay marriage in June. Too many fools out there is support of it....I have to accept it now, rather than be in shock then. Even many of my crazy relatives, all Catholic, are in favor. Fools everywhere.

The infection is in 14, but 12 cracked....probably because my bite is so off from the swelling. Been lots of pain, could have happened at any point. She said that tooth was very brittle. They gave it to me in a little black box to put under my pillow. RME
