For Real? Really? Really??? ZOT!
DUh | 10/21/2008 | gsdallas

Posted on 10/21/2008 3:01:43 PM PDT by gsdallas

Some of the posts on here are so so so amusing! Let's see, the implication that any woman who doesn't support Sarah is a lesbian? That any one who supports Obama is "unwashed"? The more comments I read, the more taken aback. What happened to actual conservatism? Did you all catch the McCain bug where if you disagree with someone you vilify them? Anyone care to come out of the woodwork and speak realistically?

What do people say special prayers for others when they travel when most accidents happen near the home?

Ummm... "why?"

I don't know. It could be:

1) The perceived risk is greater on distant trips.

2) The actual risk is greater on distant trips.

3) The impact (either way) is greater on distant trips. See #4.

4) Readily-available amelioration is better near the home. (How DO you say "I need an aspirin tablet" in Serbo-Croat -- and for that matter how do you say, "If you understand Serbo-Croat please say "iess" and if you don't please say nothing" in Serbo-Croat? And if they speak Ferengi instead of Serbo-Croat, how will you know and does it matter?)

5) And with exceptions, the lucky ones among us don't travel a lot. (So I'm not lucky. Pray for me. *\;-)

If they speak Ferengi those aspirins will cost you a quarter bar of gold-pressed latinum apiece.

There's a pawn shop near here that trades in latinum. I saw it on their sign.

Yes, it was very sad. And he’s really too big to sleep with us now, *and* Wednesday is very annoyed about the whole thing.

40’s here and not expected to get much warmer, but at least it’s not raining heavily. We’ll be leaving for church around 12:00 to do the Quinceanera; I’ve been practicing!

I just saw a weather map for your area...the worst is yet to come. It’s going to join up with a cold front from the NW and it’s going to get really ugly before it finds its way out to sea.
When I got back this morning, I was greeted very rudely by some catz. The birdz were less than excited, but I think they will change their tunes when I come at them with clean paper and fresh food...;o]

I didn't see any pomme frites, but we had lunch there, rindwurst und weisswurst and LoM had some beer.

It was fun to see. All done up for Christmas, of course. The Christkindlmarkt disappointed me for being indoors -- all the ones I've seen were outdoors, and the gluhwein stands were always busy. (It was about as cold, with light snow/hail coming down.)

Anybody who won't drink beer in the middle of a hailstorm just isn't serious about partying.

You can always put your hand over the mug to keep it from getting watered down, unless you want ice in your beer.

By the time we had the third one, I didn’t have a job, so I was at home watching them all the time. I don’t remember much about the period 1996-1998, when we had four 7-and-under. We went to church a lot, which probably kept me from homicide.

It’s much easier now, in my middle age, with several children of reasonably functional size.

I’ve always enjoyed Quinceaneras, though I was never the object of the celebration. A year too old, by the time I was aware of it. Though maybe they could have fudged a little, if I had expressed an interest.

The last two Quineaneras we did started a half-hour late. Spanish Mass usually starts 15 minutes late (Father’s resting after the previous two services), and *most* people are there by the time the sermon is over.
