It's Work

Work is kicking my ass, and the blog is getting to seem like work to keep up with.

For Brigid.

Sorry to hear about Barkley.

We can't forget the other classic starring Harold Ramis and Bill Murray

And did you know that Harold Ramis also directed some classic comedy movies?

Sunday morning sleep-in #79

It Sunday. Time to get some religion.

On the one hand...

Ragnarok has come and gone.

We lit a fire in the big stone fireplace at one end of the great room, and I dressed up in my loin cloth and waved my sword around for a bit.
Mrs B put her foot down when I started calling her "wench" and demanding she bring me a tankard of ale and a shank of mutton.

Jeez. Just trying to get into the spirit of things...

On the other hand... 

You're doing it right

Throughout the fighting in Kiev, the members of the clergy stayed with the protesters, handing out food and blessings, including giving last rites as people fell.
This morning I hear that the Ukrainian president has hightailed it, and police are abandoning their posts all over the city and making a run for it as well. The opposition has taken over the parliament and is working to get their leader out of prison.

I'm keeping that picture. I'm even thinking about printing up an 8x10 glossy and framing it.
Srsly. Look at his face.
I see that motherfucker coming at me, I'm gonna start saying my Hail Mary' loud.

Saturday Morning Coffee #96

We just got a new Love's up by the highway.

When are you coming to visit, Jennifer?

It's actually one exit down at Kelly Creek Rd..
You'd be surprised at the press it's getting around here. I guess getting a Love's Travel Stop(TM) in town is the next best thing to getting a WalMart.
Or something...

Kurt kicked over the giggle box yesterday.

I LOL'd.

SENIOR takes a shot

Why am I hearing the "Dukes of Hazzard" theme song when I watch this?

All linky no thinky.

I'm going to go out and start my spring cleaning in the yard today. I'll work my way in to cleaning out closets by April.

I'm a pack rat. Just one pile of crap away from being a hoarder. For years, Mrs B has been quietly throwing shit out when I'm not around. I bitch about it, but not too much. Without her effort, I'd never get a car in the garage. Srsly.

Supposed to be in the 60's, maybe as high as 70 all weekend.

Fuck snow. I love Alabama.

Gurg Monday FLargharl mmphga

It's been quiet all weekend.

Too quiet.

I find myself waiting for the other shoe to drop...

I guess it's been quite a while since I spent a whole weekend at home.
I found myself yesterday even considering pulling my guns out of the safe and giving them a good cleaning.
I haven't even seen my babies in over a month.

The other benefit?


I got a couple good night's sleep and found it was nearly impossible to drag my ass out of bed this morning.

I'm getting soft.

Need more coffee.

Saturday Morning Coffee #95

Asshole finally got what was coming to him.

Former Mayor Ray Nagin Found Guilty of Corruption

One count of conspiracy
Five counts of bribery
Nine counts of wire fraud
One count of money laundering
Four counts of filing a false return

Just like with any career criminal, you can be sure he got away with a lot more than he was convicted for.

Clear skies and sunshine outside, and the temps should hit 60F by Sunday afternoon.
It's February, bitches.
This is why I wanted to move south so badly...and I'm never going back.

Thirsty Thursday

I really have nothing to post about this morning.

I scurried home from Rome, Georgia, to be here at the house when the "Storm of the Century" hit Birmingham.
Sure enough, we got a dusting of about a half-inch.

Well, I've got paperwork that I needed to catch up on anyway. I'll work from the house today while the rest of the fine citizens of this state panic themselves into a ditch somewhere.

No. "Work from the house" is not a euphemism for "start drinking at noon".

Camping Out

Sorry. Been quiet the last couple days.

I'm camping out in a hotel in Rome, GA because everyone is panicking about the weather.

I'm really growing to hate this place.

So...there's that.

Man, it's fucking eerie how much he looks like his grandpa.

Saturday Morning Coffee #94

I was going to say something about Orianthi Panagaris, but she's too hawt for Saturday Morning Coffee.

I know what my next Hump Day Rule 5 post is going to be.

The Olympics are all over the TV.

Gotta admit I haven't been paying much attention, but I've been picking up some of the "ZOMG it's the Third World!" news stories that have been coming out.
It's always fun watching people who have no clue find out that the world is sometimes dirty and difficult, and you can't call "time out".

Krissy did a great write up on the Olympic Committee.

2. This committee is also made up of people that hate Russia, as in Let's do it in Sochi so the whole world can laugh at Russia.

Go read the whole thing.

I love it when she drunk-blogs.

From Jack Donovan
Order demands violence.
A rule not ultimately backed by the threat of violence is merely a suggestion. States rely on laws enforced by men ready to do violence against lawbreakers. Every tax, every code and every licensing requirement demands an escalating progression of penalties that, in the end, must result in the forcible seizure of property or imprisonment by armed men prepared to do violence in the event of resistance or non–compliance. Every time a soccer mom stands up and demands harsher penalties for drunk driving, or selling cigarettes to minors, or owning a pit bull, or not recycling, she is petitioning the state to use force to impose her will. She is no longer asking nicely. The viability of every family law, gun law, zoning law, traffic law, immigration law, import law, export law and financial regulation depends on both the willingness and wherewithal of the group to exact order by force.

Hat Tip to Mr B
