KoRn — Word Up, live on Jimmy Kimmel Live on April 10, 2004.
What’s on your mind?
*heh* Word, Suz…! ;-)
Hey Suz and Tut.
aloha tut — how’s paradise tonight? doncha know bird is the word?
hey tuez — how’s florida tonight?
Aloha, tuez and Suz…! I’m bummed that I’d missed the festivities… Annual Mai Tai festival announces its winners…
Floridaze is like usual: 94, sunny, chance of afternoon storms (chance my ass).
I hate to say it (actually I’m glad), I think Steph is gonna miss out on suffering through a hurricane.
Oh, that could be fun. Do you have ferries between the islands? If that is ignorant beyond an answer forgive me, I’m a product of the only coast…
i’m bummed i missed this fest last weekend
not according to her facebook — she’s bemoaning her luck at just arriving and now there’s a hurricane warning.
she’s a hurricane virgin yanno
Hiya Pups! Just have minutes until snoozertime. Hey Suzanne!
Oh, that could be even funner.
It’s gonna miss us. Today it’s slid greatly west. I fully expect by this time tomorrow, Florida won’t even be in the cone.
hey ce — how’s cleveland tonight?
We had two failed attempts at inter-isle ferry service, Seaflite, and, the Superferry, alas, it’s not to be…! 8-(
Cool and lovely. Goodnight!
sweet! i think its like when i saw my first tornado — my brain was all holy fuck that’s a fucking tornado
yay! g’nite ce
hiya Suzzz – firegurts
Hey all. I’ve actually never seen or heard much Korn. I have memories of April, 2004 because I took my 15 yr old daughter to D.C. to celebrate her new Womanhood at the huge Womens Rights rally. While my godson was being suspended from school in Arizona for having a Korn sticker on his backpack and refusing to remove it.
Sweet dreams, Christine…!
hey ppd — how’s the monterey bay tonight?
hey openhope — how’s the sound tonight?
Does this mean God loves Repug conventions? I’d read they were in danger of being cancelled.
Hurricane winds are unique, although we do have something similar when a “tropical” anything brews. This is even true as far north as NC. As the bands come through there is an actual rhythm to the wind. I’m not sure what about the wind is unique, really, it’s just abnormal in a peaceful way.
Then all hell breaks loose.
still cold and deep — but otherwise, great
Frigging busy! 2012 is the Year Of The Dragon……I think it’s the Year Of The Sociopaths.
Every time things calm down and I think I’m going to work on my “recipes for a Depression” foody thing, another fucking sociopath raises their fucking ugly head. And I’m off on another fight.
Maybe, if I quit the recipes, this just wouldn’t happen………………………..
she sent me a pic of some blue herons on the lawn outside her on campus apartment… she was all excited about having them as neighbors. reminded me of me when i realized i had herons and eagles as neighbors at the coast house
Even living in Florida, a part of me really wanted Isaac to slam Tampa. Even though from what I understand a hurricane tidal surge will flood d/t Tampa. However, the pols don’t live here and won’t even show up if things look iffy.
I wanted everyone to know that at least ma nature hates repugs.
At least I am cognizant of cognitive dissonance.
Maybe, if I quit the recipes, this just wouldn’t happen………………………
*heh* Not bloody likely with all the sociopaths running rampant these daze, open…! ;-)
She really, really, really, really needs to visit this place when it cools.
It’s way better than a zoo. Migratory birds one never, ever sees. Dolphins, manatees, gators, more gators, panthers, bobcats, more gators, wow a spoonbill, storks, eagles, photographers, people from all over the world, the shuttle launch site, more gators.
I’m too altruistic to wish harm on people……but my bitch side wants the convention to suffer.
Suze, Tuez, CTut, CE, et al; what it do
words of fire
don’t think nuthin’ gonna happen to The City Beautiful
i’ll pass that onto her tuez — thanks!
Ain’t Karma a b*tch…? ;-)
hey bfl — what it iz?
i never been; guess i should
ya know, that’s where i got “what it do” from; i asked my daughter “what it is” or “what is” one time and she corrected me “no, dad (condescending voice and rolling eyes), It’s ‘what it do’”
Yeah. Except when Karma is playing out my fantasies, then Karma Rocks!
iz like why i did it dood :)
You should for sure. And I highly recommend kayaking around Mosquito Lagoon too. Either your own or a rental kayak. It’s a very cool place.
Crap, does this mean” whatzup” is passe?
me too; if she’s gonna correct the way i learnt in the olden days i ain’t gonna tell her other stuff i learnt in the olden days; like “Dad, did you ever hear of Johnny cash or Bob Dylan or Neil Young” and I say “Who] never heard of them” “Dad, who was at Woodstock}” I’ll say: “Wood-what}Never heard of it” – kid better stop bein’ such a wise ass
funny, last few weeks a couple people have told me that I should try kayaking and i started thimking it’s a good idae; don’t know anything about it
i THINK (only the youngsters know for sure) that is now ” ‘sup”
say the word
It’s not that different from a canoe, really. I think they are just easier to transport and less expensive than a canoe, although I don’t really know. Funny too, we’ve had both.
Don’t start kayaking next week near Tampa, BL. All that rethuglican sewage will be hurricaned into the bay.
*heh* Gotta love those ‘Family Values’…
Peek inside strip clubs prepping for RNC…
Very funny. Thank you.
I had a rather awful evening last week at a casual potluck/music gathering. I’d just found out a 25 year old woman I’d know since she was 2, had died of melanoma. I have an almost Tourettes thing that happens when I’m in grief and shock….my language goes to hell. Motherfucker kept popping out of my mouth and it’s not even a term I use. It was horrible. I had to keep apologizing. It’s complicated.
Hehehehe. The owner of a bunch of Tampa strip clubs is the person who allowed Occupy Tampa to Occupy one of his vacant lots. The repugs are paying for Occupy (which has sadly gotten an eviction notice anyway).
i’m so sorry for your loss (((openhope))) its amazing what pops up outta our mouths when we are shocked or taken aback. i totally get that no control over it thang too
Wow, another 25 year old dying from melanoma. <>
11 years ago when I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 39, I was an anomaly. Now, not so much. I’m seeing younger, and younger people diagnosed with cancer all the time.
I’s gots to go to bed.
how are you feeling tonight, Suzzz?
had a sore day. token and i did a walk partway down the street without my cane this afternoon and i felt ok at the time but tonight i got sausage toes again and the knee is unhappy.
It’s no mystery to the causes, but a crisis to our vision of safety from death.
Wow, that’s a good thing. Except for the aftermath of pain and swelling. I’m thinking you probably moved through the pain in your walk to accomplish your goal. But, I’m projecting. I tend to push past the pain in my projects.
Then say, “Dammit, WHY do I push the limits when I had all the signs to stop?” …afterward.
Hope you feel better tomorrow, Suz. Good, though, that you are getting your freedom back! Keep on keeping on.
Sorry to hear, but glad to know that you’re getting out and about.
we are so much alike *laughing* i was working on trying not to limp but was limping and doing a lot of weight shifting as i turned back into the driveway. i knew i should have iced it immediately after but no i had to be all ‘i’ve got my big girl pants on and will just go about doing my thang’ instead
i know the pt lady will be happy to hear that i did that — she’s enjoying the fact that i’m pushing myself but then again, she aint feeling the pain
hey dearie — thanks. how ya doing tonight?
I’m good, girl. When I had my carpal tunnel surgery, I got back to business as soon as I could. You gotta do what you gotta do. But I also, and I know you do too, did everything my doctor and physical therapist recommended. I didn’t push anyone’s limits beyond expectation (hey, I’m a ‘good girl’) … I just pushed as hard as I could. Glad I did, too!. You will, I hope, be glad that you are out there doing what you can…. within limits, of course.
She may be happy, or, you may get a stern reminder about the limitations that come with healing………….
Good to see you walking the dog.
And, for your amusement, my 94 year old dad had surgery last year for an aneuryism in his lag…. and he was up and about as soon as possible, walking it off… “:). He’s doing great. Freedom is about being able to do whatever you damn well want to do! Carry on……..
i was the good girl when i couldn’t weightbear. now that i can, i’m a pusher. have real high expectations of myself when it comes to recoverying and i do try to own that and be aware of it and try to take it easier but dayammit i’m impatient and just wanna get on with my life and not wake up cause i rolled over and moved the leg in a way that it didn’t like or have to slide the seat back so i can get out of the forking car.
he insists on it – at least once a day. he has a way of giving me those dang puppy dog eyes when we’ve not taken a jaunt down the street
I would amend the “Freedom is about doing what you damn well want to do” to add “most times,but not always” now that I’m mature. :)
Well, we also have to learn to live within our limitations, but it’s nice when we can limit our limitations by just keeping on going best we can.
And you really were a good girl when you had to follow the weight bearing rules and live in the (hated!) hospital bed. You did good!
And now you get to cautiously but enthusiastically get on with life. Walk on, sister, walk on. (And pushing the seat back isn’t such a big deal… if it protects your leg, what the heck. you know?)
Hey baby, at least you’re driving the fuckin’ car! You’ve come a long way.
I get that. I would modify to say, “within limits, of course.” I just guess that I know too many people who have given up, embraced inability, etc.
its just frustrating. its almost september and i’m still dealing with this forking leg — it took a year after my total knee replacement before the leg starting to feel ‘normal’ again and i was really hoping that i would not repeat that experience.
true dat openhope. i can carry water and take care of token and live independently. i’ve come a long way but feel like i still have a long way to go… i guess i’m having a pity party
Yes, I know what you mean. They internalize the situation into “my condition”. And it becomes the reason to move backward in life.
time for me to take my pity party outside and let token save a tree. thanks for letting me hang with ya tonight (and vent a wee bit)
promise to be in a better mood tomorrow nite
Pity Party on!! You earned it. I’ll send balloons and Chippendale dancers to that party. ( not really, I have a problem with sending strippers as a celebration). Maybe just balloons and cake.
I know, but what I see is a fabulous woman who got her leg shattered (and didn’t drop the baby!) and who is coming back with enthusiasm and strength and good humor. You’ve been through something pretty-damned-ugly-physically but with the love and help of your family, found a new home, reclaimed your lovely little Token, and are just stepping into your own future. You are, to me and many, an inspiration. Any wind beneath your wings that we can stir up is just a tiny gift we can give you.
Good night, Suz, and hopes for interesting, colorful and amusing dreams…. and a good tomorrow.
night, Suzzz – be well
Damn missed Suz again. Oh well.’hey folks.
I’m working on a piece about what to expect the media will do with the new Occupy Wall Street events.
I predicted what will happen last year I will again this year.
Goodnight. Please know you don’t HAVE to be in a better mood for us to enjoy your company and your consistency.
Life is ebbs and flows.
night Dearie, OH – be well
Hey spocko. I’m eager to read your piece.
Sweet dreams, PPDCUS. Sleep well.
Here are some predictions
1) The Coverage will be of the cops/protester conflict
2) They will ask “what are their goals/demands THIS time?” “It was never clear…”
3) The story will set out to Compare OWS to the electoral successes of the “Tea Party Candidates” “Where are the OWS candidates?”
4) Attempts will be made to put the movement into the context of the election. “Does this help or hurt Obama? Romney?”
5) Still no “spokesperson?” the media hates that.
6) Comments from pundits, ” Here is what OWS did wrong.. and the tea party did right”
7) Why was OWS so ineffective … (because how “effective is measured is based on their criteria only.)
I agree with your list but I would say they’ll redo #7 into the headliner “OWS was so ineffective..”.
Popping back in, knowing Suzanne will check this in the a.m.
When I can’t physically walk my dogs I go to Plan B. Make them stay in a closed room while I hide treats (carrot pieces) around the house and let them get into their “seeker” mode. It totally appeases them for one day.
I know it’s kind of cheating, but it completely satisfies them and relieves their anxiousness. Plus, they LOVE it.
I’m always grateful I trained my dogs to think of carrots as treats.
Doesn’t have to be carrot. You can take some of their dry food they’d normally get at meals and use that instead. The cool thing about dogs is they have no sense of volume, so they have no idea their dinner is less than usual.
