Business operation book of note.

Even damned near has its own squad of cheerleaders.

Currently brought to mind because I'm having to have a front row or even back stage view of an organization totally and completely destroying itself from the inside, where the rate of people running for the door---or trying to find the door---is surreal . . .

His name isn't "Bear", obviously. Damn shame Timothy Treadwell wasn't around to explain this to her.

R. Sherman

Does she actually think bears speak English?

I'll bet a thousand dollars she left either food or food trash in the kayak. Alternatively, it looks like she's at an established campsite. Probably others have been careless with food waste and cooking which have drawn the bears there. Either way, it's a manifestation of the naive belief that the wilderness is one giant petting zoo. Reminds of the French tourists I saw at Yellowstone who thought it would be a good idea to take their toddlers up to pet a bison. Fortunately, a few of us onlookers intervened.

You're not talking about the Australian Liberal Party by any chance?

Ah, no, I don't live in Australia, I have to find the way past a total and complete snafu being staged by several someones here in the SF Bay area . . .

Simen,

"De Staat from the Netherlands"

That stopped me in my tracks from taking my evening "tab". I'll just keep it on loop....

Ta.

Hey, look what I found rifling through Davids porn collection....

You didn't come across a copy of "Rubber Bondage Babes 1993", did you Jonesy? Asking for a friend...

jones

Cap'n,

"You didn't come across a copy of "Rubber Bondage Babes 1993", did you Jonesy?"

I did but the VHS tape was (un?)expectedly worn beyond use one is sad to report.

I was only looking for presumably the same friend..........

J.M. Heinrichs

Why would this identical friend lie concealed in someone's thoughtfully curated porn collection?

Cheers

jones

J,

It's a thang....

Pity. Anyway, to get this thread back on track, in order to understand the Victorians, these historians live them:

Damn it, I'm sure I typed in my post above "these historians live like them". Is your blog messing with my mind, David?

David's going to be back soon. Somebody needs to shoo the hookers out of the bedroom and move the couch over to cover the evidence of the unfortunate "Bordeaux Incident."

wtp

David's going to be back soon.

Yes...wedding, was it? I say pictures or it didn't happen. Or cake. We'll accept cake.

R. Sherman

Or cake. We'll accept cake.

Let's hope it was a good time. That way, it will take a few weeks before he notices we've watered down his Scotch stash.

Hal

David's going to be back soon.

Ah yes, thanks for the reminder, Snake.

Hi there David, we waxed your car, we raked and mowed your lawn
We couldn't find enough to do in the short time you were gone . . . . .

WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO MY COLLECTION OF GIANT PORCELAIN SHOES?!

WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO MY COLLECTION OF GIANT PORCELAIN SHOES?!

It was the cat.

Spiny Norman

Wait, what? They weren't novelty beer steins?

Ed Snack

Ah....Cinderella called and....no, wait, Aliens, big grey/green aliens with a terrible attitude to porcelain shoes, really terrible, and aliens...(sidles towards door and tries to pretend wasn't really around watching festivities...)

wtp

Duchamp was here. You don't want them back. Trust me. Helluva party, though.

So how was the wedding? Did you bring us anything?

R. Sherman

And if you could help me find my pants, that would swell. Twister was fun, BTW.

David

You’ll be thrilled to hear that the wedding and subsequent parties were a great success. Much was drunk, fun was had. So much so that The Other Half ended up perched in a tree, before descending said tree rather more quickly than intended – and returning home, via the local hospital, with a broken heel bone. As I said, fun was had.

I’ll be on nursing duty for the next few weeks. Not a role I feel I was born for. And so posting will be intermittent for a few days.

dicentra

Oh my! A broken heel bone from a drunken fall from a tree?

That's a great story!

Or it will be, once the bone has knit.

Sorry to hear that The Other Half is in pain. Hope he's got an ample supply of Good Drugs to make your end of it a bit easier.

Definitely the cat. We didn't see the sign you posted until everlastingly too late.

There was nothing we could do.

There was nothing we could do.

That which does not kill you was merely the advance scout, and which is now swinging around to take part in the actual attack.

David

In light of recent events at the Conservative Party conference, this may amuse:

I mean, wow.

R. Sherman

I wonder what will happen when Penny becomes self-aware.

Captain Nemo

Maybe the penny will finally drop, R. Sherman. (Pun intended).

Simon

Ah, the joys of living in a University town: "[Comrade Keith] Percy, 30, who describes himself as a queer, disabled activist and poet, is seeking his first term on the Boulder City Council."

http://www.dailycamera.com/news/boulder/ci_28914242/comrade-keith-percy-make-boulder-live-up-its

David

Percy says he regularly sees the police rousting homeless people from Central Park when he’s meditating at the Dushanbe Teahouse.

That’s quite a sentence. And I notice that even words of support for our radical poet Mr Percy are also taken as “ableism.”

WTP

Squares,man. They just ain't hip. Ya dig me?

Ugh, all that blather when Percy means, "Dirty Hippie."
