George, [at Monk’s with Jerry]: “So she coughed.”
Jerry: “Coughing... naked... It’s a turn-off, man.”
George: “Everything goes with naked.”
Jerry: “When you cough, there are thousands of unseen muscles that suddenly
spring into action. It’s like watching that fat guy catch a cannonball in his
stomach in slow motion.”
George: “Oh, you spoiled, spoiled man. Do you now how much mental energy I
expend just trying to picture women naked?”
Jerry: “But the thing you don’t realize is that there’s good naked and bad
naked. Naked hair brushing, good; naked crouching, bad.

Haha - women’s equality day celebrated by going topless. How stupid are these women? Exposing themselves to every pervert in the greater Pittsburgh area makes them feel empowered. I don’t think they understand what that word means.

At home it does.....walking down a crowded street it makes you an image for pervs. It is the opposite of empowerment.

The way some “public servants”
Developed a one issue mind
Should be a cautionary tale
For vetting the political kind

McCain footles about war-
The way he goes on about it
Shows his brain is still in ‘Nam
In case you happen to doubt it

Obama’s minions love to throw
Their own creatures under the bus
Ignoring these egomaniacs now
Will cut down on all the fuss

I’ve got to go get a bid done and go to the general store-back later...

Running around topless in public makes women somehow equal? More like somehow stupid-the idiots should save it for the nude beach or the backyard pool-is not the way to be respected as an equal...

It makes women equal, because the bare breasts makes men dumb too.....lmao!

After having initial doubts, I have firmly joined the “boarding pass” on the phone ranks.

We need a special line though. Why should i wait behind people who dont have a pass just to drop my pre-paid-for bags?

On the way home, I heard this on the classic rock station-

“Mother told me, yes, she told me
That I’d meet girls like you
She also told me, “Stay away
You’ll never know what you’ll catch”
Just the other day I heard
Of a soldier’s falling off
Some Indonesian junk
That’s going round

Your Mommy’s all right
Your Daddy’s all right
They just seem a little weird
Surrender, surrender
But don’t give yourself away
Hey, hey”

And I found a CD in MrT5’s little toolbox from his Miata in the workshop-I’m listening to it right now-”29 Palms”, “Thorn in My Side” Eurythmics, Cranberries, Police, etc-haven’t heard any of that stuff in forever, and I thought I was the only one in the house fond of that type of music-wonder where he got that?

Dont know. We got Giant Eagles and they give ten cents off gasoline for every $50 spent. And free umbrellas if you get caught there in the rain.

Just leave them with your cart, they say.

Wow-I don’t think I’ve ever been that drunk, but my favorite scene in that chick flick “27 Dresses” is where the perpetual bridesmaid and the wedding columnist guy go to get a few drinks and get so drunk they are standing on the bar singing “Benny and the Jets”-which is one of the tunes on one of my must-have driving CDs in the 4Runner-the first time I heard it, nemesis and I were in a raging fight in his truck...

This pair of CDs are good, too-I think they become driving music, too-
“I had nothing to do on this hot afternoon but to settle down and write you a line” even if that song makes me cry...

yeah, mine is not so cool, but it has lots to offer....best part being the competitive market keeps prices lower. prices are set at each one by the local market.

“a drive up for loading groceries with a roof....and they load them for you”

None of that anyplace I’ve shopped, but it would only be found in Oh-Nine, or some la-de-da place like that in SA, where even my old 4X4 would not be allowed in the parking lot...

Not all that la-di-da at all. Ordinary folks shop there all the time.

The garage/workshop are all emptied of all but my tools, my mountain bike, etc-it feels so weird-the other garage will be tackled by my compadre and I tomorrow-the rest of MrT5’s stuff put together, and taken to my favorite charity-happily, there are some building materials left from construction of this house to make a little dent in the building of a new one-that will save me a much-needed buck or two.

The spooks appear to be unhappy with the changes in their environment-little air currents in the garage, footsteps, the familiar smell of cologne, etc-more activity than since the place was first built.

We don’t have any villages/small communities out here like that-all these are just ranch/farm towns-the basic is all there is. I think small towns in the southwest are more like big trading posts-you have to go 23 miles to Boerne-about 7000 people, and only 20 miles or so from SA-to even find a supermarket, health food store, or Home Depot.

They will assist anyone who asks at any of the GE stores. The smaller Shop n Save store nearby has a covered area for bagboys to load. I usually buy my mom’s groceries there. It is a little more, but they do always have baggers and short lines.

It was more better suited to me than “Rebel Yell” which was the song my colleague had first chose for me.

Weird thing here. I have the same rental car as the car i have at home. That never happened before. Of course this is light silver, not dark. And it doesn’t have the touchscreen and backup camera. Or AWD.
