In one of my favorite TV shows, Fr. Brown on PBS, one of the characters insulted another by referring to her as “decorative”. She could have used the word “otiose” instead.

Our otiose dear leader does nothing except follow the orders of his puppet masters and golf.

Otiose.

Just when I think I’m ready to relax, I find out there’s a test for it.

Due to otiosity, I failed to post a thread yesterday. Totes forgot.

this is a pretty outlandish tale. 53 yo woman judge abducted by her 23 yo lover, whom she had previously defended as a PD when he was 19. Seriously, lady?

Good morning - we took a quick trip to visit family for Memorial Day. Got flowers and flags on the family graves and got home yesterday in time for a storm and some minor flooding in the area. We got over 4 inches of rain and more overnight (I forgot to empty the rain gauge).....more on the way. I love rain!!!

Maybe “the beast” is our government? Cashless means they know everything we do - they could deny purchases for alcohol or what Moosie determines to be “junk food”. they could deny donations to Christian or Conservative entities..... indeed scary.
