    The young man in custody in the top photo was my student once. Nothing about this story surprises me in the least.

    You know that your future stepfather is going to be a colossal dork when your mother starts using, unironically, "HUZZAH!" in regular conversation. No book nor counseling session can quite steel you for seeing your mom in a wench costume every Saturday on facebook.

    She had a valid reason.

    Ok, so this _really_ bugs my daughter.
    I do this about every 3 or 4 days. I wait until she is quietly in her room doing homework, or reading, etc.

    1. Go and get a spatula from the kitchen.
    2. Go into her room and use the spatula to turn over some of the clothes that are lying on the floor, or on her bed.
    3. Pat the item of clothing gently with the spatula and say, "Almost done"

    It never fails, she freaks out and chases me out of her room.

    I had a dream last night that I was drinking alcohol again (I haven't since 1990). My wife didn't care, and I enjoyed shots with dinner, but only did three since I had to "drive in a couple of hours." I felt buzzed in my dream. It was very very weird. I've not had a drinking dream that I can ever recall.

    Happy birthday to SoCalPat. I think it was 2 days ago, but we missed it here. Don't worry, SCP, is isn't so bad to be in your 30s.

    Fitting I see this greeting on the day my wife pushes an envelope my way (from my aunt), asking me, "You ever gonna open this?" I hadn't realized it came.

    I was having a dream that I got stung in the lip by a bee causing it to hurt and swell up, but when I woke up, my lip still hurt and it was still swollen.

    Then I really woke up and my lip was fine.

    I think it's pretty awful for anyone to call a child illegitimate. While I agree with you about birth control, all children are children. People who care truly about legitimacy lose credibility with me.

    I hadn't seen that quote, terrible. Yes, to any women who got pregnant from rape and decided to keep the child, find your own holiday to celebrate. What a tool.

    There is irresponsible reckless sex out there so exquisite that if you had an inkling of what you are missing you would be crushed and debilitated under an intolerable weight of despair and regret.

    Those two things are not mutually exclusive (see Les Miserables).

    Have bankers surpassed lawyers as the most reviled profession?

    I saw a door that said exit only. So I entered through it and went up to the guy working there and said "I have good news. You have severely underestimated that door over there. By like a hundred percent." Demetri Marti

    Live had a few customers call me worse than evil. But I am definitely not high enough up earn the scorn of the masses personally.

    i asked my wife my about this yesterday when we were driving around. she actually answered, but then quickly told me to shut up.

    Q: if you were going to be executed, what method would you like?

    A: I'd take guillotine. Quick, painless, and cool. You'd have a big crowd around you in the after-life asking you about it.

    close second is hanging by long drop. Quick death, and I've always loved riding the Tower of Terror. Might as well go out with an adrenaline rush.



    Comments:
    vein sauce: yes, it's painless, but wimpy. Don't go there.
    Don't bother to pick something like being drawn and quartered. Don't want to expose yourself as a weirdo.

    Is this an option?

    Firing squad, with a lit cigarette in my mouth. Because honestly, who cares about lung cancer at that point?

    I spent last week in St George, riding my bike in the morning when it was relatively cool. Jacob Hamblin put his house where he did for a reason... it was a good 3-4 degrees cooler than the rest of the town, being down in the valley and near a river. Remember it always pays to be the man.

    I bought a small bag of M&M's today. When I emptied them on my desk, there were only 3 brown M&M's in the whole bag. There has to be some pretty long odds on that, usually brown is the most represented color. I noticed because I usually eat brown first because the are the least cheerful color, and I eat M&M's to be happy.

    Also, typing M&M's on an iPhone keybord is pretty annoying.
