Seriously.  Acorns, hickory nuts….even a persimmon hit me in the head yesterday while I was cleaning up hurricane debris.  Gravity is stupid.

(This vid is very NSFW, btw)

But the squirrels like it…

Ringo

I’ve told this story to some of you privately, but I still think it’s funny.  So Imma tell it again here publicly.

My pair of ducks are no longer with us.  This is them.  Or….WAS them…

Those ducks loved me.  Mostly because I fed them twice daily.  Unfortunately, the male was small and sickly from the jump.  It’s actually kind of surprising he lived as long as he did.

A few weeks ago, I found him dead, near the water’s edge, with the female there by his side grieving.  Assuming ducks can actually grieve.  I honestly don’t know if they can, but she followed me as I removed the male’s body and disposed of it.  And then she stuck close to the house for several days, quacking her little ass off at me.

I knew his demise meant she’d also soon go away to find a new mate, which apparently she now has.  I haven’t seen her now for a few weeks.

But while I raised them, and while I was feeding them regularly, the local squirrel population got wise to the feeding schedule, and began also showing up regularly to get their share.  One of those squirrels has a tail which has a very distinct ringed pattern.  So, of course I named him “Ringo”.

Well, since the ducks went bye bye, I’ve still been getting the sad “we’re hungry” eyes from all of the squirrels, so I’ve continued to feed them.  Yes, I’m a sucker.

Anywhoooooo…..

Ringo disappeared for a couple of weeks recently.  And I more or less thought he was goner as well.  But he showed back up a few days ago with a giant (and almost fully healed) scar across his back.  I don’t know the particulars of the incident which caused this wound, of course.  But he’s a tough little shit, apparently.

And his name is now Ringo Scarr.

Oh come on!!!!!!  It’s funny, dammit!!!!!!!

Ah, to be sixteen again, huh?

Also, is Ringo Starr a pedophile or what?????????

I Gotta Go Buy A New Leaf Blower I Guess

Some of you might recall that back when the summer solstice hit, I wrote a post featuring Summer Glau

So you should not be terribly surprised now, since tomorrow is the the autumnal equinox, the first day of Autumn sooooo….well…. yeah…

Autumn Reeser week evahbodeh!!!!!!

Oh Crap, she gon’ shoot me with a flare gun.  I hope the leaves don’t catch fire.

Enjoy…

I know that beach.  Never seen her there, however.  So, now I’m sad.

Equinox Time Fo’ Da Ladies!!!!

(see what I did there?)

Have a great weekend, everyone.

Love ya’s

We tried a few colored gels and an additional light. From the right is an L.E.D bank pointed at a hot-press bounce. Smaller L.E.D bank to the left.

I’m not sure if it’s live, but I’m transfixed watching West Coast absolutely destroying Melbourne in the AFL Preliminary Final.

West Coast – Melbourne just started!

Ooh, I’m awake! Guess I should leave this diner and go home to watch.

Or watch it on your phone and annoy the family in the next booth.

Just saw Brick’s post about the RAMMIT tickets. $30? Very tempting. Any of you SoCal DFOers want to make a pilgrimage?

ballsofsteelandfury

The bigger attraction is the new Food Hall next to the stadium.

Unfortunately, my Sunday afternoon is booked as I’ve got family commitments. Otherwise, i’d join you.

I’ll be at my secret society annual meeting tomorrow. It’s on Sepulveda. The handshake secret is to fold back the middle finger and tap thrice with the thumb. I guess I shouldn’t have told you that either.

BrettFavresColonoscopy

Now I just have to drive up and down Sepulveda until I see a gaggle of secretive looking people

Finally left work, took care of some stupid shit, and brought my laptop to a diner in Santa Monica. Now I want out of the social contract based on the family of five that sat down at the booth adjacent to mine (despite this place being 80% empty). People are the worst.

Senor Weaselo

I read this as “bought my laptop dinner” and was very confused.

2 years ago, Metallica came out with a new album. I just heard it for the first time 2-3 months ago. It’s pretty awesome.

Anyway, this song is going to be in WWE 2K19. Too bad the gameplay for the WWE games is shit.

Col. Duke LaCross

That was the heaviest cut on that record. I actually went to a midnight sale at a record store for that album. They’re one of the last bands left I’ll still do that for.

I love that Oregon’s biggest problem with marijuana is that the state has too much of it, but can’t ship it out of state because an evil Keebler Elf is the motherfucking AG.

He hasn’t done the “weed state crackdown” he promised, but methinks that is mostly to spite Herr Fuhrer

True. Idk

That’s still its biggest overall problem.

If nothing else, watch the start of this for an entire bar full of #ThePauls supporters drunkenly belting out “We Are the Champions” after beating the Jest to go to 1-1-1:

Utah is beer only.

Edited because I actually read the fine print. They’re going to have to start selling stronger beer in the grocery store here soon, because they’re about to quit making 3.2%.

I’m not trying to poke fun, but dang if your duck story didn’t give me a flashback to a certain pilot episode about another east coaster with an affinity for waterfowl.

I feel bad for not keeping up on your summaries. I used to love this show, but I cant find the time for it (going 7 months without cable royally screwed up my TV viewing habits)

That’s for the drones.

Alright, time to see if battlebots is on demand.

Fucking drones.

Senor, you ever do any sort of write up on battle bots before the reboot?

Senor Weaselo

You mean, when I was like 10? I didn’t.

Brocky

Okay.

I remember watching bronco fight tombstone and realizing the guy who made bronco also made toro.

Gave me flashbacks

Toro AND T-Minus!

The best part: it WORKED. Also it’s a spinner bot.

I love spinners!

Just image the other guys’ reaction. You researched the design. You spend countless time and money putting your design into an working, tangible working machine.

Your plan gets ruined by something that was bought at WalMart for about $12.

Never.

Americans are too stupid and lazy.
