Def Leppard — Rock of Ages, live on Lopez Tonight, May 12, 2011.
What’s on your mind?
How’s the new place?
funny! its small but perfect for one :) still have a boatload to unpack but eh, what is moving without a boatload of stuff to unpack.
how ya been?
Oh, I know the feeling! I’m still trying to recover from the Big Camping Adventure…as in “whaddayamean I ought to put things away?!”
I’ve been healthy, losing some weight and eating much better. Getting tired of the chilly, wet and gray weather, even if it _is_ typical of Seattle in June.
How’s the leg?
leg is crankier than a 2 year old in need of a nap. had my first outpatient pt on tuesday and oy was i feeling it tue night and yesterday. been treating it gingerly hoping it calms down — today was better and i didn’t have to take a strong pill during the day but oy do i need to take one tonight.
Hi Suz! Good to see your fonts here again. Sounds like you are starting to settle in. Is Token there now?
bg! how ya been? token is still in tillamook — i’m not able to make that 2 hour each way drive to pick him up yet. am hoping i should be able to take care of both myself and him within a couple weeks — according to pt lady, i’m to stay on crutches until i see the doc on the 28th
Well, dang. I’m sorry it’s still givin’ ya such a bad time.
If I could wave a magic wand, you know I would! If only to teleport Teh Cutest Dog in the World, Seven Pound Division to St Helens to keep ya warm!
OK, I’ma bundle up and go beddy-byes. Because I refuse to turn on the #@!$ heat in !#$@ June!
Haight Street Fair this weekend. Guess where I won’t be?
for tut and newton for covering my slots this past week
I just want to say that Suzanne is from the school of “Internet Hard Breaks” – Hell, when I met her in 2007, her dial-up modem (yes, that’s right – DIAL-UP) network was so slow that she could have been better connected if she had stood on her roof and shouted!
That said: Welcome Home stranger!
g’nite funnyd — fyi i’ve got on a jacket and am wrapped in a blanket on the sofa for the same reason :)
Have not seen your handle in ages, I saw on FB one of my NW coast friends had her heat on yesterday. . .lordy. We are burning up here (literally).
mikey! how ya been dood?
I’m holding a silent auction June 23rd to benefir our Wa. ACLU and our communiy Hall maintenance fund.
If you’ve got ant cool bling to throw this way…60-40 split..can be anonymous….60% can go to a favored charity…or you can pocket it as Life Dollars in Community Commerce. Which is my socialist raised dream.
I’m finding it’s hard to encourage people to pocket the 60% for the Slent Auctipn. We’re SO trained to be martyrs or nothing,imho. I think it’d be cool to develope Capitalism At It’s Finest and encourage community commerce on a community level. Whether it’s Art, Dry Goods, Furs or Sundry items. Or boats and motorcycles….that’s my focus to procure right now as a Fundraiser Whore. I might have a rack of Moose antlers and 1920 Walrus dice from Alaska…we’ll see what the Community Stuff coughs up. It’s so fun!!!!
newton! dood, i was forking moderating on dialup *buffing nails on bazooms* fast pooter on a very slow connection. i know the forkers in that blasted white van paid those forking squirrels to chew on my phone lines back then *laughing*
how ya been? i loved that carole king video tue — so sorry i had a white van on my tubes….
Patti Smith on Nightline, love her.
I hope the brownies went over well.
hey openhope – i’ll look to see if i have anything as i unpack. how’s the sound tonight?
quad strength dood…. bought out all the ex-law walgreens had… i’ll get those forkers moving
So good to hear you’re on your way to the next stage! I can’ say how impressed I am that you held yourself and your LLN together.
I bow down.
Dear Suzanne, you rock!
schmaltzty but true. I so heart true.
lol, cocktails with visene, was that the other thing? I forget.
aw thanks openhope *blushing*
*innocent look* i couldn’t find the regular chocolate and it is chocolate yanno…
yes, choco a go go.
I need some drugs after our terrible Tuesday. Very depressing.
Oy, very energetic and involved, one could say.
I was thinking I’d whip out a few useful Depression Era style recipes that use the same-ingedients-post and plant the garden with the focus on preserving food until the next season.
Fuck, did that go totally out the window with the introduction of Damon Vickers in our lives.
Didn’t see that detour coming!!
Now a neighbor has Damon Vickers’ criminal file, you can buy them for $29 from the Government? wtf, who knew until now? It’s not pretty and I’m reluctant to get a copy because I’d like nothing more than Damon Vickers Out Of My Life, but I will. And I’ll make more copies to hand out for interested people.
Because, when handed a Lemon, make Lemonaid.
SuzeO!!!! Oh, joy to see your fonts here again!! So happy I stayed up a bit later than intended. So you’re wrapped up in a blanket to keep warm? Just like old times, huh? Just a couple weeks til Token is back with you, too…much better than “no pets, so never”. Dammmit, my return key seems not to be working…can’t make new paragraphs! This puter is weird.
Got to go to bed now, but so happy you gotcher tubes back and can walk and all that good stuff. Oh, and a place tolive. That’s a very very good thing. You got through all those weeks, and now it’s just about over.
so glad you’re back!!!!
a friend sent me a txt message and i was so upset… fucks were flying
i was astonished to read your comments about it when i was catching up today… holy moly openhope — fucker doesn’t know who he is trying to fuck with
Yo, tj. It is hard to believe that it really is almost over now that Suz is near the end of this crazy time of her life. Wow. It has been a long row to hoe, and yes, it is almost a new day!
tejan!!! i’ve been reading books like crazy this past week…so glad you stayed up and stopped by — tis good to see your fonts too
I am not in a mood for forgiveness and “unity.” No, I am not.
its going to be a long, hot, and ugly summer
I have been broadcasting that Obama got 18,464 votes less than the Senate candidates on Tuesday. . .I put it up on the OFANM FB page, and guess what? They took it down. They have been promoting that Obama got more votes than R-money statewide, but then I had to try to rain on that shit.
looks like i missed a lot while i was offline — zimmerman is back in jail, walker is still in wi, and its netroots nation this week… i’m so far behing i have no idea of where to start catching up
maybe its good that i was offline — kept my blood pressure from going spa-loo-gee
Yeah, but he’s a sociopath, he’s only thinking about how HE’S dealing. I’m invisible in his world other than as a serious obstacle. It’s not about community in his world.
It’s totally about Community in my world.
There will be no meeting of the minds.
Therein lies the problem.
It’s a learning experience to have this style of Predator come into your community. The people who sold him his White Elephant Mansion built on Sacred Indian ground …..they tried to stop the sale in the 11th hour when they realizes who he was.
Damon Vickers got his 14 million dollar mansion for 3.5. A mansion with floor planks dredged up from a lake [killing the lake, rumor has it] because Shipwreck Wood was a favorite of the Microsoft mentality that caused this beautiful beast to exist in our community. wood throughout, no water pressure so no sprinklers throughout 12,500, but they had a pond and swimming pool so it passed code?? Built on a Sloughing Cilff, which means the cliff sloughs off dirt on a regular basis which feeds the coastline. Some call them Feeder Bluffs. That’s where agates come from when you’re beach combing in a GlacialPath area.
And we got Damon Vickers.
Not a good week for blood pressure.
You musta missed the Queen’s big partay too, eh?
Sistah Suz, back and tall in the saddle!
Here’s MY Rock Of Ages.
My Dobro Teacher, A Band She Was With.
Love this tune. The metal, well, bang yer head doll, bang yer head.
I’ll be pickin round the campfire and sippin boot liquor.
Welcome home gal!
he still calling you?
*sigh* i did — no tv until the 11th :( i would rather have tubes and no tv but to be without both was a pissah — heard a wee bit about the queens’ party from the bbc on opb radio but never did hear who all was playing at the concert
hey larue — how’s sac tonight? thanks dood
Life is good Suz . . . lots to chat about, job wise . . .
Garden wise, I gotta shoot pics and post.
It’s insane how it all grew in two months.
N I might be festing, this summer.
Details at 11, or when we chat.
Happy for your progress!!!
festin! how cool dood… berry?
*yawning* my pill has kicked in pups… thanks for letting me hang out with ya tonight and for being so kind about my being gone for so long
I don’t know, I’m screening my calls. We’re getting a lot of hang-ups but we discontinued Caller ID, not that that would matter, Damon would blank out his phone number. I actually have that number and his residence address because of neighborly concern and it’s on his $29 document. And I don’t want to go there. I know I’ll engage when he pushes the buttons. What choice is there? For an Alpha Bitch? :]
Sweet dreams and sweet decorating the new abode. My all time favorite thing as a gypsy, it’s so re-energizing.
Sweet dreams, Suz…! It’s great to see you’re back in the saddle…!
Sorry that I’m way late to the party, ya’ll, but I just got back from my weekly Occupy Hilo GA…! We’ve got a busy month on tap…! ;-)
very cool. It’s good to know you still have a core energy. Many of us do and it’s a good thing. Most awesome, actually.
Aloha, open, We’re more determined than ever after the dismal Wisconsin results…! ;-)
Yes, the ugly is out there. The election machines are so compromised as to be a joke, so it’s hard to get all fired up on bullshit. What a joke.
What you guys are doing in your community is the antidote. It’s real and it touches people’s heart.
I thank you. I mean that most sincerely.
I hope I have Sweet Dreams, too.
It’s so sad that you can’t buy good dreams in a pill form, but I’m sure they’re working on it.
Always the cynic, never the politically polite………………………….
Always the cynic, never the politically polite………………………….
*heh* That’s why I luvs ya, open…! ;-) Sweet dreams…!
back at ya
“We’re all in this together.”
Whatever that means…….
