Pink — Blow Me (One Last Kiss), a behind the scenes video.
What’s on your mind?
what’s on my mind is that i’m really freaking tired
SUZE!!!! how YOU dune
bfl! i’m hanging in — you are up late tonight dood. whazzup?
when i saw the title to this video, i thought at first pink was covering the old bob & tom song
weird i’m tired but i’m awake at the same time; tired but justr can’t get to sleep
ugh. how’s the city beautiful?
Okay, the new gold standard for Olympic/sports commentary. You have to watch the video to the end to get the full effect. You will be tested. Sports commentary as only an Irish satirist can do.
hey tuez — how was your day?
ohmystars that’s a hoot tuez…. the article about it underneath — wow, the ioc tried to get it pulled
dwight howard traded!!!!! praise the lord!!! i’ll by the bum his one way ticket outta town!
Well, my day was good. Based on sample ballots sent out for next Tuesday’s primary, I’ve been redistricted out of Alan Grayson’s district; however, his embrace of the DLC wasn’t thrilling me. So I was googlin’ the ballot and what did I find, while I thought I was watching cement set, a fuckin’ true progressive hoping to represent me. I immediately signed up to volunteer.
What a cool song and video, although initially I thought it might be a remake of the (not quite) eponymous song from “Bye Bye, Birdie.” What’ll kids these days think of next?
Every time I’ve watched it today, I’ve laughed until I cried. It’s damn close to brilliant.
He left town on his own.
yay! who is he running against?
hey hag — glad ya liked it. how’s things upriver? (i’m in st helens now)
i think i’m in that district now– is that the one with adams vs mica; i was in that before, still am
yup, he left before the season was over and never came back; bum
Same district. Check him out. Impressive. Wants to start a New Deal Caucus. Wants to lower SS age to 55, increase minimum wage to $14/hour. He’s a PhD.
hag’s last kiss
Great rainstorms this morning with thunder and lightning — so needed! The trees in the local Lake View Cemetery have dropped leaves and look so stressed. Our staff is meeting there tomorrow for a tour. The chapel is full of Tiffany glass. How is everyone?
hey ce — i was noticing trees starting to change color already. not a lot but a few… like its going to be an early fall maybe?
tiffany glass!!! *squeal*
I’m afraid that we will have an autumn with brown leaves and no color at all! Tiffany had a Cleveland studio to decorate all the grand mansions on Euclid Avenue, and the city of the dead. It is a beautiful park, usually. This hottest July on record has taken a toll on plants and trees all over the city. Our deck (OMG I’m so excited) now sports half a floor…
i was noticing how the maples’ leaves have changed from green to green with a yellow undertone when i went to pt today.
its not just your city — this has been a horrible summer for so many
When I went to Hilo in March, I bought two new bathing suits. Telling MrCE, “If it is as hot this summer as last, I’m joining the city pool.” Well, to no one’s surprise, it has been, until this week, too hot to join the pool! We will be leaving for Germany in three weeks — I’ll be visiting parks there and will let you know what’s what there.
it’s FL-7 now; used to be FL-24, Sandy Adams is—– ick— loathesome teabagger; hubby used to be a judge
what towns are ya going to ce?
Just call me Betty Crocker…
First to Munich for fun, then to Berlin for a meeting, and more fun. Architecture, art, food, beer gardens, museums of cities and science. MsCE and her partner are joining us. I don’t read or speak German, but I’m sure we can get by with English and French.
hey betty crocker — how’s the south bay tonight?
how long will ya be gone? gonna catch any octoberfest or will you be back by then?
evening, Suzzzz – firegods
‘evening ppd — how’s the monterey bay tonight?
Hola, Suz and llners. I’ve been up since the crack of dawn, already fell asleep but wanted to say our arraignment was today and no success in getting a new judge, we’re gonna have the one we got, I think the only one in that county.
Not much else.
Baked, darling. Like an apple pie. >:-O
Oh, back before Octoberfest — I can’t do grand crowds! Leaving on the Sept. 1st and home on the 16th. I just want to see all the museums and visit the beer gardens.
hola bg – ugh. when’s your next court appearance?
another crummy day in paradise, Suzzz — how’s everything up north?
Hey, and goodnight. 2:00 am for me and I’ve got to sleep. Goodnight All!
will there be fall color then or will you be too early for that? i’ve always wanted to do one of those river cruises and watch all the fall color go by
Oh, $500 max and 90 days per charge, three charges, others want to go to trial, so that will be an automatic guilty finding, and so most likely will have some jail time if I don’t pay whatever the fine is set at. In the past, the jail time is about 4 days. Boring. le sigh. Also, we will have some lawyer expenses to raise funds for. I really don’t have time for this. Oh well.
another day in teh 70′s but its gonna hit the 80′s this weekend and they are forecasting mid to hi 90′s this time next week
never saw this before– blew my mind
No next court date yet. I think it will be a while, I guess they will inform us by mail.
Hiya CE — sweet dreams
wow, i’ve not seen it either… wow
me too, good to see you CE and everyone
just to add more uncertainty… geez
I had a great time last weekend, Suzzz
hey, i was in NJ for vacation last week an’ i wanna move back!!!! very different from FL and I hate it here; people are fucking odd and there’s too much lightning
how was the marin century?
Absolutely great weekend — Saturday’s 100km Century was terrific.
sweet! how many riders were there?
sold out — between 3,000 and 4,000 riders
saw the pt lady today. she reassured me that i overdid on the mt and that is why i have lost so much ground this week and that she didn’t see anything unusual during her exam. said my knee is hot and swollen and swollen in places (like the back) where i’ve not had swelling before — said to keep icing it and taking the anti-inflamation meds (800 mg ibuprofen) and didn’t work me hard. said to continue to take it easy and we will reassess next week. if its still doing this next week, she recommended i call and get the surgeon’s office to order an xray that can be done when i’m in beaverton for pt to confirm that i’ve not had more of the bone glued mass shifting and/or that my ‘acceptable level of deformation’ hasn’t increased. got home, put an ice pack behind the knee and another on the knee front and ended up falling asleep with the ice packs on.
and yet here i am zoning out again. my apologies peeps.
night, Suzzz – be well
