.

Speaking of being ignored, looks like Cole calls it “World of Warcrack” for reasons.

    That paper was of higher quality than the episode of SNL i just sat through. At least it wasn’t filled with bad ethnic jokes aimed at the over 60 demographic.

    AL finally saved us. Hurray !

    My own opinion is that Facebook is actually the crack cocaine of social media. I go for BJ, which is more esoteric / exotic (think Absinthe).

    ETA: Re: the paper – that doesn’t even scan correctly (compare to “hit me with your rhythm stick”, over and over again).

    I’ve gotten a few calls on my cell and home phone and I swear it’s a runaround the Do Not Call list.
    Caller: Is X person in?
    Me:No, you’ve called the wrong number. Nobody by that name lives here.
    Caller:Oh, I’m sorry I must have called the wrong number. Hey, we’ve got a special going on xyz, Would you be interested?
    I guess I should tell them to me off their fucking phone list. My cell phone number used to apparently be an active republican’s phone number. I used to waste quite a bit of republican pollster/fundraiser time. I guess they eventually figured out the person had died because the phone calls stopped.

    In Malaysia, per the Constitutional definition, if you are not Muslim you are not Malay, regardless of your actual ethnicity. It is an artifact of the racial politics here.

    I’m trying to get a few job apps done before bedtime. it does feel a bit sisyphean. but I did buy a christmas rosemary tree, in a mad rush of hopeful hopiness. I stopped warcrack after my entire machine had a kernel panic and crashed. I figured it was a universal statement that I should go do something else. So far, I have apps out to places like Burbank & Torrance and Seattle. If I get an actual interview, BJ meet up thingy!

    @Amir Khalid: I’m somewhat familiar with the racial politics, but my knowledge is somewhat dated, say mid 1980’s. I was unaware that it was a constitutional provision.

  61. 61
    Suzanne says:

    @ruemara: I’m sure you would be a great asset to Giant Evil. I mean that in a good way only, of course. Best of luck.

    @Suzanne:

    and I know you’re alright. I’m getting sensitive. that needs to stop.

  63. 63
    Suzanne says:

    @Omnes Omnibus: Oh shit. That’s grounds for justifiable homicide right there.

    Who am I kidding? In my early 20s, I *married* crazy. That was a bad move.

    @Suzanne: I’ll take any job that could get me my evil goatee and/or a moustache to twirl.

    Thanks for all the good wishes. Tomorrow, I put all the hockey I’ve been watching to good use. I hope. 4th restart is the charm.

    @Little Boots: Dude, fix your linking ability. Find it on YouTube, copy the link, then come here and attach the link. If you are going to have a reputation as my stalker (which you do), I think is is reasonable to ask that you be technically competent.

    tried. what is with the anger?

  83. 83

    and I’m not a stalker. I am kind of glad when you are around. but that’s not the same.

    cept a little.

    he had his issues. I don’t actually say this, or think this, but I think I will pray for him.

    @Little Boots:

    I mean, I don’t this this often, or say this often, but he seems like he could use it.

    wasabi gasp says:

    @Little Boots: That’s a good thought. I suppose I wish I could think it. But, I think he’s finished using anything.

    Just got back from state marching band championship. The boy’s band got first in division and 2nd overall, missing first by 1/10 point. Everyone is more deflated than they should be. They’ve worked so hard, and they should really be proud of how well they did.

    The Post has Marion Barry dying a few hours after being released from the hospital. That’s messed up. I read the Post obit. Who knew Barry had a Masters degree in Chemistry?

    Anne Laurie says:

    @🚸 Martin: Congratulations to the kids. It’s hard to appreciate that “best of losers” is still a reward, until you’ve been around long enough to understand how many people will never get anywhere near that close!

    I didn’t know that Barry had a master’s degree in Chemistry either. That is pretty messed up that he died so soon after being released from the hospital.

    I'mNotSureWhoIWantToBeYet says:

    @mai naem: (Raises hand.)

    He had a complicated life – good and bad. He was a convenient punching bag for those who refused to let DC run its own affairs.

    RIP.

    Cheers,
    Scott.

    Woodrowfan says:

    Barry definitely had a mixed record. He reminds me the old-time big city machine politicians. Corrupt as hell, pocketing money in shady deals and taking advantage of the system for his own benefit, but doing a lot for the poorer citizens of his city.
