Your “I Scream, You Scream….Wait, WHY ARE WE SCREAMING????” Friday Evening Open Thread

I'm not gonna sugarcoat this.  I've had a really bad week.  From many different fronts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hyk-Vdd_Qrk Frankly, I'm pissed off at the world and just about everyone in it.  And I'm not in the mood to talk about it. So at the very least, you're not gonna have to read my ramblings this

Your “Don’t Call Us, We’ll Call You” Friday Evening Open Thread

I've been away for a coupla weeks.  Yet I still really don't know what to talk about this week. I'm writing this early because there's another hurricane 'gon roll up this way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4x6leDGV7gs And I fully expect to lose electricity, internet and phone.  Again.  The last of which might be a blessing, actually. I

Your “My Nuts Are Falling” Friday Evening Open Thread

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) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20h-PJPMap4 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

Your “This Isn’t What I Meant When I Said Blow Me” Friday Evening Open Thread

I'm on my way to pick up teh King Hippo.  We've decided.... fuck this hurricane, we' goin' drankin'. Just kidding folks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5J5W-zZ-HtY Having driven in the middle of more than one hurricane over the years, I'm staying home this time and hoping no trees come down through the roof.  But if they do,

Your Friday Night Open Thread / Weekend Homework Assignment

So,  your friendly neighborhood Balls was enjoying his Labour Day weekend of not doing jack shit when he decided to not only start talking in the third person,  but he also discovered some horrifying news. Sit yourselves down for this one: Apparently,  the Miss Bumbum pageant in Brazil will end after this

Your Labour Day Weekend Friday Night Open Thread

So, we all slept in until the crack of noon, immediately cracked open a beer,  and then scratched our asses to our hearts' content,  right? Wait seriously? Do you NOT work for a company that gives you a four day weekend this weekend? Um, I guess the appropriate thing to say is

Your “It’s Friday. Let’s Eat And Drink And Drug Like The Champs We Are” Friday Night Football Open Thread

It's shitty preseason ball and a couple of shitty teams are involved in this double-header. Call it "un-beautiful symmetry", maybe? Whatever, my eyebulbs are gonna catch some action. One thing I've got an issue with is the fact that this is the first weekend that all teams are playing and

TGISF … Solstice, Schmolstice

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5bUmx-hk-c OK, here's the deal... This week's theme was predetermined a while ago.  The calendar does what it does, I don't control it.  And days ago, I began thinking through what I wanted to say this week to try to make you idiots laugh.  Because I think I'm funny even if you

TGISF… Quite Contrary

I've used that particular banner image up there for TGISF once before.  Not quite ten months ago, when talking about libraries and reading books. But this is not about books or libraries this week.  Nope, this week we're talking about gardening n junk. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxyRObLtYCk - Who's Got Two Thumbs, Neither Of Which Are Green? Yet

TGISF… Whose Side Are You On, Anyway?

Recently, while on the beach, I spied a group of a half dozen or so lovely young ladies.  Shut up, I said "spied", not "stalked". Nonetheless, there they were right before me.  I couldn't exactly not look.  Some were swimming, some were sunning.  They seemed to be having a nice time.
