          A POLISH spork! Great idea. Then, if you decide to change over to, say Mexican for the 5th, you can go get some Polish remover ....

      One more time with editions:

      Here's a newly sharpened spork from the Klatsch Products, Unlimited, LLC Catalog. *hand's it over, handle first* I picked out one to match Big Blue so you can take it with you on your runs. See the little loopy thing (is that too technical?) on the back? You can also use it as a clip for your bolo tie when you host a formal Ne k k id Grilling party. Wear nuthin' but that tie – around your neck I would presume. ~_~

      WD is only going to be gone a short while. She'll come back to you all pretty and clean and you'll be so happy to see her.

      About that super moon,.you're just going to have to deal with Jdizz on the cr@pper all by yourself, my friend. I wouldn't touch that with a 10 ft roll of toilet paper.

      America fallen? Doubt it. There are just too many depressing h8rs slammin Emigres O'Flaherty on the Cinko thread.

      That reminds me, have I ever told you the one about the load of mayo the Titanic was carrying ... ?

    • MicheleG™

      To me, this is a classic example of how the profoundly average people among us (unfortunately the statistical norm) run things.

      It seems like the only "acceptable" response from the stultifyingly (I just made a new word), tediously ordinary folks is to react rather than THINK. Their first priority os to cover their a$$es., THEN, and only then, attend to the actual issue.

      May 4, 2012 at 12:51 pm |
      • MicheleG™

        kant tipe..... final thought: and when they "attend" to the actual issue they do the expected, ordinary, average thing wherein no real enlightenment happens. Lessons do not get learned. (I could go on! Sorry, this kind of junk gets me on my soapbox.)

      I forgot about Sinko de Mayo! I will be flying home Sunday, maybe have hubs go to local hispanic market and pick up some goodies, they make amazing food there and fresh tortillas daily. Your brunch sounds fun, what types of foods do they bring/serve??

        Your hubs likes Mexican food? Sigh. What's that like? ;)
        The brunch is held & catered by a local yacht club and everything is top shelf, right down to the good silverware & fine china. Pick-your-own-item omelets, endless chafing dishes of eggs, bacon & a nice spicy sausage, breakfast breads, huge bowls of fruit, fried chicken, carved roast beast and a dessert table that is to.die.for.

      Que es eso? Es un zapato!

      That's all I remember from Spanish class. Took it for ease of curriculum. I laughed at a joke she told once in class (she only spoke in Spanish) and I was the only one that laughed. That tipped her off that I knew more than the Spanish I class. Then later she found out I had two half Mexican sisters at the time. She made me switch to Spanish II.

          Gemologist, too. It's a big field.

          20 horses running at around 45 miles an hour for a mile and a quarter for about 2 minutes will be intense.

          Secretariat's average speed was 37.8 mph. Man O'War had an average speed of 36.9 mph. Down the home stretch in the Kentucky Derby Secretariat was running 49 mph.

          WD is faster at 38.201100. while chasing squirrels and Rabbits at Churchill Downs. Luckily it was not a Sloppy Track. Ever taken the tour through Churchill Downs? It's fun and you get to see the backside where the Horses are kept, plus you get to fight over horse shoes when the Vets come in to re-shoe the horses. I use the Horse liniment on WD if she chases too many squirrels. Kentucky is a Beautiful State. :))
