ETA for the poison to leave the system? 3-4 weeks according to the severity of my symptoms. :) i am going home shortly and going to bed. to be continued...

      • wendy

        alas, it was from clearing out a fenceline at the house i am moving into. getting a new fence installed and had lots of cleanup to do. even after taking all the necessary precautions i still ended up with the itchies. grrr. yeahhh.. the Chiefs. that's a 4 letter word around my house. :)

    Interesting video on the main page of the last moments of Ghadafi (dictator stooge) before he died. Looks like it was not pleasant.

    October 20, 2011 at 2:59 pm |
    • Truth

      But he died happy, as he just got a great deal on his car insurance by switching to Stateco.

      October 20, 2011 at 2:59 pm |
      • RichardHead@Truth

        Word is he passed with 2 gunshot wounds to the chest....Maybe he committed suicide?

        October 20, 2011 at 3:15 pm |
      • Jerv@Truth and RicH and calling it a day

        Haha! He died happy alright. Not to change the subject but I talked to my pops about the Mexican truckers and he said we'll have more drugs being shipped over and the cartel wars right here in the US before the first big Mexican truck crash. You guys have a good evening.

        October 20, 2011 at 3:21 pm |

    I was wondering when you'd wonder this way, considering the frequency of your posts.

    I find you words amusingly ironic.

    Well, since DJ Phil seems to have taken the day off, let me add some lunchtime tunes. I love this song, as it reminds me of a pretty good friend of mine who is getting up in years. Guy used to work in my building's parking garage. I make it a point to take him to lunch every month.

      I'm not big on country music, but don't we all wish we could have a friendly chat over beer one night and inherit millions?

      I believe after I take over the world, near the end of my life if my minions haven't figured out immortality, I will go out in disguise, have a friendly chat with some random people, and pass down the overlordship to whomever amuses me the most.

      October 20, 2011 at 2:17 pm |

    Hello everyone- tonight is my fiance's belated birthday dinner, and we still have no idea where we're going.

    October 20, 2011 at 12:51 pm |
    • RichardHead

      Please give a belated Happy Birthday from us all. Why not just pick up a bottle of wine,cook him his favorite dinner and relax together?

      October 20, 2011 at 1:01 pm |
    • Jerv@Mil

      If you don't stay in and cook for him tell us about where you wound up going.

      October 20, 2011 at 1:46 pm |
    • JainaJade@Mil

      I agree with the other! Get some wine and cook up something fun and tasty :-) If he is more of a beer guy then go for a beer menu: Beer Bread with Beer Basted Chicken and then end with a Pumpkin Beer Pie!

      October 20, 2011 at 1:56 pm |

    Good Thursday morning my friends! Hubs bought some new cookies yesterday, they look like the crispy edges of brownies, he has probably talked about them at least 45 minutes between last night and this morning, that's just how he rolls, LOL. I have a few to share if anyone wishes. And who took the coffee from the pictures! :(

    October 20, 2011 at 11:20 am |

      You obviously are Not feeding Hubs enough--I like the way he rolls. How 'ya feeling Beer Babe?

      • JBJingles@RH

        Ha! The big guy feeds himself quite good and frequently I might add. Must be nice to have great metabolism... I'm a little sore today, had pool therapy yesterday and stretched a bunch of muscles that were perfectly happy not be stretched. :)

    Morning, chums. Finally a sunny, albeit slightly ominous day. I like that.

    I'm just getting ready for an upcoming local reptile convention. Looking forward to meeting some of the local breeders. Taking stock of what supplies I have available and doing some care research in case I decide to bring a delightful little creature back to the Evil Lair to become a new animal minion.

    October 20, 2011 at 11:10 am |
    • AleeD

      What kind of creature you considering for the evil lair?

      October 20, 2011 at 12:00 pm |
      • Evil Grin

        I'm thinking about a panther chameleon (Furcifer pardalis) or a sunbeam snake (Xenopeltis unicolor).

        I've long thought about adding a varanid to the Lair for protection. A water monitor (Varanus salvator) would be just about perfect. They grow large and have naturally bad temperaments. However, I am wondering if the Lair currently has the space necessary to properly raise and train one. Of course, once the first is trained, it will be used to train others. I'll need a full protection detail.

        October 20, 2011 at 12:43 pm |
      • AleeD@Evil Grin

        For just a pet, the panther chameleon looks awesome! But for the protection detail, the monitor is definitely the way to go. I can even picture them in specialized body armor as you take over the world.

        October 20, 2011 at 1:45 pm |

        Mwahahahahaha. Exactly.

        Truth be told (no pun), Corinn was an amalgam of the worst of what I have dated, encountered and worked with.

    Goooood morning and happy Thursday. Today is Friday for me. Mucho appreciado for the help on the threads yesterday. justadud is a rather angry fellow, isn't he? IDC It was fun. Can't help but wonder why he's not a cop anymore – not!. After hubby's procedure tomorrow, the installer will come out to check the floor again. We checked the water meter twice yesterday and it seems that we don't have a leak anywhere. Whew. Keep your fingers crossed that the floor is dry(er) and hubby gets a clean bill of health.

        Nice to have an easy day. I just emailed my pops about the drivers crossing the border starting Friday. He will be pizzed. Speaking of trailers, I saw this tractor trailer with these long angled panels running down beneath the lenght of the trailer. I'm guessing that is some kind of aero dynamic thing to save fuel??

        You are correct Oh Trucking smart one. They were introduced last year and it's just another thing that the rookies can tear up and rip apart. It's funny that the first Mexican Co. allowed to run in the U.S. only has two trucks and drivers. Rather odd when you think about it.

        Yes that is odd. I bet they run the hell out of those Mexican drivers. How long do you think before the first big headlining wreck?

        Your on the same wavelength as Truth and I....We talked last night after the terrible first Texas Rangers game. Anyway, It would seem to me that DOT needs to take a hard look at the trucks and drivers on the understanding of the English language,etc. It will only take one major accident caused by them to really set off the American public IMHO.

        I bet you are right. It would be interesting to read about what kind of certs and credentials those drivers have. Anyway, did you see Qs NFL nose picks yesterday, of did I already ask you that?

        Uniforms, mascots and anything that sparkles. Ha! That's our Q. That's cool that you spoke with Miss Saigon. I remember when Truth posted the photo of them. They looked like a very nice, happy couple. Have to be, in order to hang around the Klatsch at night messing up the furniture!
