(Bday) BREADSTICKS OF THE WEEK! OCT. 28



Angeloo decided to give me the idealized stick pose as a gift. Xtra kisses & kisses for that one. Happy breadsticks to me!

DC: A photo essay in breadsticks.

These breadsticks outside of the Postal Museum at Union Station ensure that neither rain, nor hail, nor sleet, nor snow, nor birds, nor mice will keep us from our mail.


















Egyptians understood that cats were gods and so mummified them for all eternity. You can visit the museum to worship them.

The above sticks guard Grant's tomb, because you can have all the guns, bombs, cannons, & other warmongering devices you want, but you can NEVER have too many breadsticks.

These galumphing horsesticks are a lesson in contrasts. Yes, they are stong and nimble, but are they flexible, yet powerful, or are they unwieldy and prone to breakage? Can they jump & fly with the utmost grace, yet pounce and kill on the blink of a dime? Ask yourself.

(LATE) BREADSTICKS OF THE WEEK! OCT. 21

This ain't no funny stuff. I had to go to DC, the capital of the United Sticks of America, to capture these killer breadsticks. Don't mess with the US(ticks). Grrrr.

Sexy, grey sticks for a drab, grey Monday


Thanks to Glenn for this pic. of Charlie's swirly grey breadsticks! Please note that Charlie symmetrically dipped both front sticks in a jar of white paint up to his catelbows. What a smart cat! A small bit of sunshine on an otherwise dreary day.

BREADSTICKS OF THE WEEK! OCT. 14

In which Dubh gets a 2nd chance to make a 1st impression:
I'd say she has pretty well redeemed herself.
(I just couldn't crop her head, in favor of only her breadsticks because she is too damn cute! Plus, she is sick today, and I felt sorry for her.)

Cheesecake shot

I came across this little piece of heaven earlier today. Haven't been able to get it out of my mind since! Looks like a young Tina Turner, no?

FORGIVE ME

    STRANGERS WITH GAVELS

    While it is nice to see that George W.B. appreciates the work of Amy Sedaris, the question remains, "Is a 'boozer, user and two time loser' qualified to sit on the highest court in our nation?"

    At any rate, I'm sure she's infinitely more qualified than GWB's fellow criminals who infest his cabinet and those who advise him, such as Rove.

  • MS DO(E)S(N'T)

    OK, boys and girls, remember this? Yeah, I had to think back to my freshman year of college (ya, old, whatever) Computers 101 class to remember the last time I used MS-DOS. That is, until, I got to my new job 5 months ago. Yep, the company I work for STILL uses this outdated, outmoded, dysfunctional computer system for all company files. (Note: the image above is generic & not from my job. I'm not that stupid!)

    The reason I mention this OS is because there is a direct corollary between my prodigious posting today and MS-DOS. That is to say, the rickety, old, work system is down, yet again, and has been all day long. The result is that I am stalled in my work and can do absolutely nothing, causing everything to get backed up and delayed. Funnily enough, I actually have some things to do today which will take up more of my time than the average (everyone who knows me knows what that is).

    Now, if this was the only time in 5 months that this system was down, I wouldn't mention it. The fact is that it is down AT LEAST once a week-bare minimum! What makes today different, is that the sytem is usually back up within an hour, and we are now about to enter into the 4th hour with no paged (my company of about 40 employees are not "comfortable" with emailed messages) end in sight. So, I just ask, WHY, why do we persist on with this system last updated (per info. on startup) in 1987? Are they giving the CEOs some sort of kickback? I can't believe this to be true because the software company would be out of business if they had to pay that high of a price to bring us shitty service. Ohhh, is the software company part of the Mafia then, with an agenda aimed at keeping us stuck in the 1980's when their business was booming with all the coke trade? No? Then WTF is it, because I simply won't believe that the powers in charge of this sort of thing are just not progressive and are uninterested in bring company technology into, well, the 90's?! Right? Right?

    ARE YOU TRYING TO DRIVE ME CRAZY???




    OK, take a look at this shit. Firstly, these damn SUVs should not be on the road at all. They are way too big and prevent me from seeing around them and driving safely. I have to rely on these morons to stop in time, etc. and these brutish pricks are the last people on earth I want to trust with my life.

    Secondly, people who drive SUVs are selfish and self-obsessed. Please note, the idiot in the picture is standing proudly in front of her vehicle which is PARKED OVER THE PARKING SPACE LINE and invading the (more)normal sized car's space next to her! This is wrong and selfish: the person who owns the car next to the SUV is now forced to enter through the passenger's side door (provided another SUV doesn't park on that side as well), and maneuver carefully to avoid backing into the great monster next door. This has happened to me before while in possesion of several packages and it is beyond annoying. But, again, the driver is clueless to anyone but herself, conversely, she is cheerful to be pictured with her gas-guzzling beast-fuck everyone else!

    Finally, have you noticed that many staunch SUV supporters (Jeb Bush, many other Republican, right-wingers and auto industry pushers) are now ditching their SUVs in droves, in favor of more modest cars? Funny how even the slightest suggestion that these things were gas-guzzlers and pollution producers a few years ago drew sneers and abuse from these SAME people! Now, they see the light because gas prices are making an impact on their wallets. But, do you think any of them have admitted they were wrong and that maybe the environment and gas availabilty go hand in hand? Sure. And Tom Cruise is not a brainwashed psycho.___________

    Now, even MORE annoying than SUVs are SUVs DRIVING IN THE LEFT LANE!!! This activity is ignorant, controlling, and anti-social. And it's not just SUVs, it spans all vehicles, ages, personality profiles, and it just shouldn't be happening! Read this:

    DENVER (AP) - Colorado is serious about its no-dawdling law in left lanes. Drivers who insist on staying in the passing lane are risking tickets as the State Patrol has begun enforcing a law requiring motorists to use the left lane for passing only.
    Since the patrol started enforcing the "Left Lane Law" three months ago, troopers have written about 460 tickets or about an average of five a day to drivers who dawdle in the left lane.
    The law applies in zones with speed limits of 65 mph or higher. It took effect July 1, but troopers gave drivers until January to get used to the new law; warnings were issued instead of tickets.
    Master Trooper Ron Watkins said that since the ticketing campaign began three months ago about 90 percent of the drivers he has pulled over for dawdling or cruising in the left lane said they didn't know that it was illegal to do so.
    Violators of the left lane rule may be fined up to $41 and have three points tacked onto their driver's licenses. The law is not enforced when the highway is too congested to allow drivers to pass.

    This enforcement is so totally right and needs to be enforced in ALL states!! As driving an SUV, lane hogging is just, plain, selfishness and disregards other drivers. Millions of wrongs are caused with left-lane pigs. For starters, they massively slow traffic, especially at rush hour. These drivers form a car barricade across every lane and prevent those who wish to drive as if they are not 70 years old from going around those in the right lanes (where they belong) who do. Thus, every single car behind the barricade line is forced to creep along.

    There is also an element of control, in terms of being able to dictate how fast traffic is allowed to move. Apparently, some drivers feel it is their personal duty to keep everyone going at or below the speed limit by driving slow in front of everyone instead of getting in their proper right lane. These people need to cultivate some interests (become a fucking crossing guard) outside of other drivers and get the hell into the RIGHT LANE.

    I can't tell you the rage it causes when I am trying to get somewhere in a hurry and am forced to pass a driver on the right or, even worse, trapped doing 60 mph in a 70 zone. Being forced to pass on the right is unsafe and completely preventable if people would just wake up!

    The article above states that most people pulled over in CO for slow, left lane driving were CLUELESS that it was illegal!!! What were these people doing while being taught the rules of the road?? Even if they don't remember being taught this, isn't it COMMON SENSE not to block traffic??? The left lane is the PASSING lane, as in Driver's Ed!!! Like a gas station bathroom: get in and get OUT or don't go at all!!!

    TAKING OUT THE CHAVS


    This is truly inspired:
    http://www.chavscum.co.uk/name.php
    Apparently the Brits now refer to their white trash as "chavs"(they always have to come up with a cutesy name for people/things.) So, this site generates baby names for chavs. The names are perfect! On my first try I got the ever-classic, "Crystal". Love it.
