Grab Bag O Imagery

Well, I promised a pic of Zöe with the hot-pink sausage-dog toy thingie.  So here’s me, LK, and the pup.

I’m guessing that Obama would like to do this to Biden.

I’m not naming names but I know someone who owns a Pampered Chef business and I LOVE their stuff.  Luckily I get to use a LOT of their stuff.  Some… meh.  Some of it just doesn’t meet my standards but that is because they’ve made some items too safe.  But other things like the garlic press and the utensils – oh yeah.  And baking stones… droool.

So anyway, I was thinking “pampered” and how it’s kind of a funny word, and as I broke it down it changed form to “pimpered” and I thought again (twice in one night, ow) that maybe, just maybe this would be a funny twist to the idea.  It’s a work in progress.

That is it for imagery tonight.  I thought I’d have time to try a few more ideas for fun but I had to work so it just didn’t fly.  Sorry.

Techno Update:

And if a portable high-lifetime bacteria/virus water filtration system with carbon filters isn’t teh cool, I don’t know what is.

This doesn’t really make me feel any safer.  Now I feel threatened by my government.  Correction:  Now I feel MORE threatened by my government.

What is your first – and I mean FIRST thought when you view the image here?

We only have the smallest of reprieves and ultimately our government intrusion will be a moot point. CERN won’t kill us until next springWe’re all gonna DIIIiiiieeeeeee. Someday.

Our sun is a bum. It does nothing.  And it begs for rides and favors.

Biden Your Time…

[Warning:  I’m in a mood.  Cut me some slack.]

Way I see it, you just gotta wait and they’re going to beat each other to death.

Biden critical of Obama ad.

WASHINGTON (AP) – Barack Obama’s running mate says a campaign ad that mocked Republican presidential candidate John McCain as an out-of-touch, out-of-date computer illiterate was “terrible” and would not have been done had he known about it.

Obama spanks Biden.


Nice going, hound-dog.  I mean, damn, I’ve seen Hillary so on one level I understand but show a little self control.

"I could nail that." - WJC

"I could nail that." - WJC

Then Slick Willy goes on to say something way out of character or at the very least disingenuous.

“I get this,” Clinton said. “My view is … why say, ever, anything bad about a person? Why don’t we like them and celebrate them and be happy for her elevation to the ticket? And just say that she was a good choice for him and we disagree with them?

Whatever, it still smells like a steaming pile of bullshit.


Crime pays.



The new sell-music-on-memory-cards concept will lead to little itty-bitty cards packaged in indestructible plastic at least the size of a 8.5×11 sheet of paper (despite claims in this article) and misshapen and irregularly formed.

I also predict that it won’t be long before anti-copying “smarts” will be put on them – it is the ultimate trojan horse to control music.  Initially market it free of controls, get people hooked on them, then quietly initiate the controls, touting them as purely self-preservation-oriented.

The Clairvoyant Lemur has babbled.  Perhaps entirely in error.  Who cares?


Oh for God’s sake.  Why do they think cheerleaders dress the way they do in the first place?  Bunch of frakkin’ clods.

The previous uniforms didn’t flatter every member of the team, and some girls said their outfits were uncomfortable, Robson said.

“Girls are just bigger these days, not everybody’s a size zero,” Robson said. “We’re not being a bunch of prudes.”

Not everybody got to be an astronaut either. Not everybody gets to be a cute cheerleader with a good bod and feel flattered by their uniform. Deal with it.  Fact is, just like good athleticism is kind of required to be a QB or tight end, a stunning bod is pretty much de rigeuer in cheerleading.


This is a true and total damned waste of taxpayer dollars.  A new design wasn’t needed.  No one counterfeits the things – they look ok as-is.  I would rather they spent more money trying to figure out how to spank North Korea’s superbill counterfeiting capability.


Yep, I am thinking that this disorder is really far more common than originally thought.  A Double-X (XX) chromosome pairing pretty much condemns you to a life of this is some form.

NOTE:  WJC did not say “I could nail that”.  About Palin.
