I went to Macy's at lunch, and overheard a man wanting to buy some lingerie for his girlfriend. The sales clerk asked if he had anything in particular in mind, and he said "Something that will look good laying in a heap next to the bed"
I had to stifle so much laughter, i thought my head would explode...
Win! But I have to ask why you were in the woman's lingerie dept at Macy's at lunch? Getting a present for someone special? *wink wink*
Well, I hear the Queen is having a birthday soon, as is Jaina...
I heard from AleeD that Biddle likes Pink. What were you doing in the undercover Dept?
Had lunch with the 'Naughter and she wanted to look at something on the way out...
Suuuuuuuuuuuure,you can't fool your Brother.
Ding!Ding!Ding! Winner here! Good one!
(I az zume the clerk was laughing, too?)
When I've had too much coffee too late in the day messes up my sleep….and well basically, one sheep, two sheep, cow, turtle, duck, Ol’ McDonald had a farm…HEEEEY Macarena!
Nighty night! I think.........
I'm riding a bit of a sugar/caffeine high right now and I don't know what to do with myself!
Deep breath... Oh, who am I kidding? heeheeHEE HA HA HA!~

You are just too cute to resist. C^m on down to the dungeon. I know Ed Zachary how you can use up all that energy. ~_~
What in the world does Ed Zach-man have to do with anything? He's too busy being the (TARGET) of numerous internet jokes! That is unless you're trying to hint at something. Are you trying to hint at something about me, Miss Miss Miss?~ Because searches on the googles makes it look like you're trying to pull a fast one on me!
Just enough to keep 'em guessing. Have a great evening all.
Especially you, DJ. ~_~
Be gentle with the young fawn. So innocent.

Lordy! You mean to tell me some of theses ARE actually words? In the English lexicon? (And I thought I had a good vocabulary....Google searches are SO handy! I should have done one, too.)
thanks. I think.
For what it's worth - I hand-moderated the one containing "XXX" to pull it out of Pending. That's on the ban list. I'll probably have to hand-mod this very post.
Hmmmmm....a warm Kentucky bourgeius Perhaps? A play on words regarding pull it....a chicken or hen if I am correct? Yes, we push the definition of the common English language in regards to food or Veggies,or in times of a lapse of brain power...general common sense. I still must say that we are Human in thought and feeling towards one another. As a group, we should not be punished by a quarantine of parameters set by a computer program. Hopefully Kat,we have not relapsed to 1984.

Bad letter combinations / words to avoid if you want to get past the CNN automatic filter:
Many, if not most, are buried within other words, so use your imagination.
You can use dashes, spaces, or other characters or some html tricks to modify the "offending" letter combinations.

There's another phrase that someone found, "wo-nderful us" (have no idea what sets that one off).
There are more, some of them considered "racist", so do not assume that this list is complete.
I'm disappointed that I can't use the "sn-atch" term. it works so well for many conversations.
But Ron you just used it and it really wasn't funny, so I don't think you'll miss it too much. Run along now....
Afternoon party people! It's 6 days until my birthday! Do you all have my party planned yet?
I have a song ready to sing on your birthday. RH said I missed your birthday, so I gave your gift to JainaJade, sorry.
I'm not jumping out of any cake...
well...we have to have a Mr. Goodbody to do a cake jump!
Who will be our "volunteer?"
I nominate Biddle...!
anyone else? or do we have a second on this?
As long as it's a Jew.
Biddle with pasties!
I pass my nomination to Jerv. He has been scarce around these parts lately. It would be a good re-coming out party for him. Just sayin
I'm not Jewish, so I guess that rules me out Jake. Thanks for your input.
( o )
Biddle just had a baby. Let him heal for another 5 weeks or so.
I second the Jerv nom nom nomination. ~_~
I vote for this guy, will serve two purposes as he can put out the fire from the birthday candles...
can't go there. Says site is temporarily unavailable/disabled.
Was suppossed to be a shortcut to the pic, google images of Firemen Calendar images, take your pick! :)
What is scarier is the comments on that report! Are people getting meaner?
I heard Fox "News" shut down some of it's message boards so my theory is that the Fox trolls have migrated to CNN to post ugly comments.
my modest opinion is that given how commonplace meanness is I think there is a genetic predisposition for bigotry in our argumentative and combative species. Is part of why I enjoy it here in this peaceful little corner of the internet.
I agree. I've been a cop and almost lost my faith in humanity for a bit. I like to be here and have nice and peaceful conversations!
I like this quote from a poster on Zurker:
You are not a chemical... so please think before you react.
*like* I also heard one lately, "common sense is like deodorant, those that need it the most, don't use it"
Like that one, too. If you go to G+ there are many q
Like that one, too.
Wow... everyone's chatty today! This is awesome.
and *hugs & cold drinks* for everyone.
Haaaaay. I just noticed that the puppies didn't follow us home last night or this morning. Maybe skool is back in session! :)
Either that or the chinese restaurants in Cali are having a " Lunch Special " today.
Note to self, avoid chinese for lunch today, check.
You've got mail!
Read & responded. How's things in Seattle?
Happy Friday Eve crotchety ones! Got a late start today as I finally took some Nyquil Cough last night, it works, but makes me feel like carp in the morning...
@abk – Positive thoughts heading your way! Is there a good children's hospital you can consult with?
@RH – You let WD go 'commando'?? LOL
@AleeD – I would never, ever picture you in curlers!
@MG – Yep, we are going to cool off to 103 today instead of the 113 forcasted, woo.
@everyone else – Klatsch On!
Ummmm,does this mean we are having Fish for lunch??
No fish sticks today, probably a salad for lunch, your favorite!
Half a bottle of Bleau cheese dressing for me to cover up the green stuff. I might need some napkins tho...is this fiber?
I believe the napkins would be considered fiber so you are good.
Klatchety ChumFlamenons R Us.
Thank the gods. I don't even blowdry ...... my hair ........ on my head.
There's just no way out of that.
I dub thee..QUEEN of "The Innuendo!"
I 2nd that dub! It is so frakking hot, I am sweating in the morning trying to get my hair (on my head) and make up ready for work. I have to blow dry or my hair won't dry for hours and hours... :(
You are one of our best customers, we appreciate your business.
JB: Please run your a/c. No one wants a wet head – out of the right context.
MG: I've tried to get the Modbot Wordkeeper to post "The Modified List" twice since abk started posting. No go.
Mr. Hardwood: isn't that name redundant?
I just did a giant sweep of the "pending" queue and it may have been flushed out with the dirty (seriously, you would not believe how mucky and awful) bathwater if it was there. If so – sorry. Try again?
I can only imagine how mucky and awful if some of the stuff I do see gets through...wow, just wow.
there go go again.....innuendoing and double entendering. Like, like, like!
there YOU go again...AlleD....
I jus kant tipe 2daye....
No worries. Considering the vitriol that DID make it thru, I can only imagine what did get flushed. How do things keep coming back around to flushing?
Has there ever really been too much of a good thing?
Dry head is NEVER a good thing. NEVER! EVER!
@AleeD- thanks for the list.
@JBJ- not very many pediatric gastrointestonligts(sp) here. I've made some calls to Atlanta and am hoping to hear back soon and get her in. Her reflux is so bad that even with medicine, she is small for her age. She had severe coilic as an infant and the only way she could ever sleep was in a moving swing.
Aww, so sorry. I have a granddaughter who has had a lot of problems with lungs, on steroids, etc. It's so hard to see little ones being affected by ailments. Hope you have answers soon.
odd and sort of ....................... odd.
I think I got bit by one of those at the county jail....
Howdy, Sweaty Ho! Only 108 out here today......
ABK, much sympathies. (((Hugs))) to you and your toddler!
wow...cooler...on;y up to 106.
Ya know .... you keep calling me those names .....
there are those moments when we are ALL a little sweaty.....ho, ho, ho!
@ MG- thank you!
Why do I imagine the photo above is AleeD responding to her next victim via e-mail. "Lets see I could do a dungeon session from 3:00 – 5:00 on Saturday or 10 – midnight on Sunday"
Good morning! @abk, How scary! Positive thoughts are sent your way. :)
Good morning! Thank you :)
You're welcome! My daughter just had surgery (for other reasons) 2 weeks ago & it is frightening. Hang in there!
Good morning Crew!
I'll buy an hour of restful sleep from ANYONE at this point – name your price!
I can appreciate. Have some coffee and belly up to the bar. How are Mrs. Biddle and Baby Biddle doing?
Baby Biddle is doing well, he can just be a bit fussy at the wrong time of day. Doesn't cry, but does more of a Dick Cheney grunt which give me comedic material if the timing is right otherwise it send me to the couch. Father-in-law has been here for the week and its been....well, um....kind of...aghhhh. Lets just say its not been that bad, but I am glad today is his day of departure.
Keep the faith. I am sure he means well. I have ALWAYS believed that three days is the PERFECT length for any visit. After that, the veneer of civility tends to wearing off.
BIG BELIEVER in the 3 day rule with vistors! It hasn't been that bad in reality, but its been enough to fill a TV sitcom with script material for a good protion of a season.
It will be called "Everyone Loves Biddle", a wacky sitcom about a CNN blogger who encounters wacky situations with inlaws, his wife and young'uns. Hilarity ensues...
Guess that CIA trip was cut short, eh? ;)
Swap out that white robe for a black leather bustier and Gramma's couch for a loooong red chaise.
And no curlers. Dear gods – no curlers.
Crap, posted it in the wrong place.
That's what she said!
but we LIKE non-sequiturs, and mystery posts!
Holy Comic Str!p, Batman! How long have you been holding that in your pocket? lol.
Holding what?!?!?! I wasn't doing anything, I mean holding anything!
Please sign on the dotted line and I may include a case of scotch. :)
Another non-disclosure memo? Why not. Running low on Dewars....sooooo. Thank you!
Good morning all!
How is everyone doing today?
Errands I hate this morning, then a half day at the office. Denver is looking at an eventual break from the heat over the weekend, which will be nice.
So if you read the posts from the visitors yesterday, I guess I am the crotchety one. I never perceived us as old though. Rather, an inclusive and easygoing group.
It's a blind men and the elephant situation. People see what they want to from their perspective, but it's not necessarily the whole picture. One day looking at the Klatsch doesn't give much of a sense of how deep it runs.
@Truth& Kat- I always have felt welcome here. Never thought it was anything but an easy going group! I've enjoyed "meeting" the people here.
Maybe JBJ had it right yesterday? HA-–Besides, your still the smartest man in the room. Should we call ourselves the Krotchety Klatscher's ???
Haha! I second that.
Wow. I completely blew past CC's "crotchety comment." Re-read it just now. Please keep in mind: school's out; kids are antsy about going back; they're just ignorantly venting. Remember how bad it was last year? Angry little trolls crawling around here like fire ants. Stinging anything that gets in their way.
As Kat said, it's hard to get a true feeling of what goes on in here from just one day's thread. For all we know, CC viewed all of us as crotchety. Joke him if he can't take a ..... ;)
Good morning everyone! Looks like the photogs caught AleeD in the middle of her morning routine...
Hope everyone is having a good day and staying cool!
Morning all ... & Mr. Deej. ;) Other than the curlers and the white robe, sure. ;)
JBJ, FWIW, I haven't heard from Sir Bid this week either. Seems he mentioned some top secret CIA business in the Bahamas ... but I could be mistaken.
abk, best of luck with your little one. Rich is right, a 3rd opinion would be the way to go. Hubby & I have found it's best not to tell your dox from which other dox you're getting your multiple opinions. It keeps the levels of influence to a minimum.
What's that supposed to mean? ;)
Read my posts to Sir Bid and see if that doesn't 'splain it. :)
Good morning! New post up on dancingveggies for anyone interested. Plan to work on a peaches and cream bread recipe tonight, if it actually works I'll post that next week sometime. :-D
Yum! I'll have a look. I love peaches.
Sorry to hear about the young one.....maybe a third opinion also would be in order? Driving Big Blue with a 53 foot trailer makes it kind of tricky to get into some places. What type of food do they have?
@ RH- I plan on doing as much research as possible. She has had terrible reflux all her life. Nothing has helped so far. Potty Pats has southern food and its in the style of Gone With The Wind. It's in downtown so it would be hard to access. I do believe they have decent parking garages, but Big Blue might not make it. They have excellent fried chicken. I try not to eat fried very often but I make an exception for them.
Pitty Pat's Porch – Southern Dining
Thanks, I'll check out the link in a little bit.
Is it Friday Yet? One more trip to Hotlanta and I'll be ready for the weekend.
Good morning. Sounds like you have a new route?
Morning Lil' Buddy.....Yes Sir, New company--auto parts back and forth, Houston to Atlanta. WD likes the new scenery and sniffery too.
Haha! "Sniffery." Well that is cool, more money I hope. The chick in the photo looks like she is about to give us a Britney Spears moment.
Yes Sir, Better company and more money. WD always goes " Commando " !!
Go WD! I was reading the "Breaking News" posts. LOL! Seems Randy Travis had way too much fun. Have a great day RicH and all!
@ RH-I'm ready for weekend too. I don't live too far from Hotlanta and go frequently for the shopping and good food. Ever been to Pitty Pat's Porch?
And off topic but it looks like my little girl needs surgery for her GERD. I'm getting a second opinion though because I hate to have surgery done a toddler :(
