Print Story I heard you let that little friend of mine take off your party dress...
The B.A.D.TM

Tucking my shirt in since 1973...



  • So, the Republican Culture of Corruption is trickling down to the Democrats now, eh? Sure, they lead by example and of course these poor blokes are going to follow. That said, it's tough to look innocent when they have you on video tape taking the bribe, then find 100 g's wrapped in foil and crammed in your freezer. Heh... Good thinking there sparky. Obviously his decision making skills have been influenced by Tom Delay and "Scooter" Libby, no sane jury on the planet will convict him.
  • The big gala wedding was a huge success last weekend. Well, except for that one moment when some guy jumped up and yelled something about the lovely Ms. ToDeath carrying his love child during the "is there any reason why these two should not get married" part of the ceremony. The Reverend/Pastor/Preacher guy handled it as well as can be expected (turns out the guy was just joking around), it's probably not something they get a lot of training on. As a side note, the bride and groom dated for 15 years before getting married, which, ladies take note, is the perfect length for a courtship. QED.
  • I'm having a "rotisserie" deli shaved chicken stemitch for lunch today, along with a tub of my world famous home made Spanish Rice stuff. I modified the recipe again with this batch, doubling the amount of tomatoe sauce and chili powder, so it's a little more creamy and it's got a bit more zing. Yummers.
  • I've been on a "download every free VST plugin regardless of how crappy it is" kick as of late. That said, I've found The Kjaerhus Classic Series freebies to be pretty darn good. Certainly in a class above your average free junk type stuff. Still I think they should work on the name a bit. It's pretty tough to do the whole word of mouth thing when you can't even come close to pronouncing the name. Ka - jer - hus maybe??? Damn foreigners.
  • My throat is a bit sore today. Curses to my wimpy constitution.

courtship by sasquatchan (4.00 / 1) #1 Tue May 23, 2006 at 06:48:16 AM EST
15 years ? Geeze, bob, if that's your standard, better get down to the high school and start trolling for 18 year olds. That way, they'll at least still be fertile by the time you make up your mind.. Or toss 'em aside, as those high school girls all stay the same age.. heh.

Anyway, I'll guess that you're not near any commitment stage in your life. What's to fear ?

And who were the participants in said wedding, anyway ? (and did anyone take that tosser out and beat some sense into him ? Or was it informal enough that he could get away with it ? I mean, I'm a jokester, but I wouldn't try anything that stupid)

I'm just doing my part by Bob Abooey (2.00 / 0) #29 Tue May 23, 2006 at 08:14:05 AM EST
Look, I have no plans to get married. Ever. I think it's silly that you have to have some legal document to qualify a committed relationship.

No sir, I'm just doing my part to inform the unwashed masses. I happen to know that at least 3 or 4 real women (not just guys pretending to be women) read my secret diary and this is the type of information they need. See, I'm all about education.

Regarding the tosser, well, you know, now that I think about it, the ether was really kicking in at that moment so it's quite possible that was some sort of hallucination. With ether it's kinda hard to tell.

Warmest regards,
--Your best pal Bob

Did you hook up with any bridesmaids? by georgeha (4.00 / 2) #2 Tue May 23, 2006 at 06:49:25 AM EST
I hear weddings gets the gals all starry eyed and hot and bothered, though I have no real data on that. I reckon an elegible young man like you, with a real job and no mentioned child or legal entanglements, would be a real catch, other than that troll problem.

Good ol' LTD is now married, eh? I reckon once the kids come out, he'll be back here, complaining with the rest of us old married breeder farts.

I assume you have bread on the stemitch? And you're having rice? Didn't you hear, carbs are poison, our poor lil pancreas isn't designed to process that many carbs. Better start shopping now for glucose meters.


Ooohh LTD got married ? by sasquatchan (4.00 / 1) #7 Tue May 23, 2006 at 07:14:09 AM EST
I see. Misread that "Mrs. To Death" was Bob making a comment on the "to death do us part" of the marriage or something like that. Isn't that where the "does anyone have any objections to this marriage, speak now or forever after hold his peace" part comes in ?

Regardless, did the esteemable Mr. P show up as well ? What's that kid up to ?

Anyway, seems L2D has his own blog

Who do you think was the "love child" tosser?  As luck would have it, I ended up being the best man, which in the end I discovered mostly means that it's all on you to ensure that the groom's zipper is up during all important parts of the ceremony.  Oh well, maybe next time I'll do better.

My life is much the same.  Maybe I'll follow in LTD's footsteps and start a blog somewhere to tell you about it.  Thanks for asking.

I got emotionally blackmailed into a public emasculation ceremony[1] after only 11 years or so.  Now the phrase "Big screen TV" is just meaningless blurb.  It does nothing for me.  Nothing.

You must be making that Democrat thing up.  I haven't read anything about it over at DailyKo5, and as you very well know, that's the only source for reality based political news.

Ditto on the bridesmaid[2] question.

[1] In the context of being a nation of skirt wearers, that's pretty damn emasculating.

[2] Shouldn't that be "bride's maids"?  And what in the name of fucked up possessives is "bridegroom" all about?  It was all right to show a bit of faux deference in the days when women were chattels as soon as the ring went on, but now they're uppity enough already without that kind of linguistic encouragement.

Take your bribe in gold.  Go to a national park (plenty near DC).  Dig a hole.  Mark down the GPS co-ordinates.  Encrypt your GPS co-ordinate list.  Leave your stash alone until you are ready to launder it.  QED.

Of course none of this will work if you are being followed and filmed.  It's a good thing that our elected officials are stupid and behind the times or the FBI would never catch them.

They must perform a pretty thorough search.

I'm thinking your best bet is to have to have it hidden offsite somewhere. Maybe rent a PO box under an assumed name and stick it there? Or a locker at the airport like they do in the movies. At least for a few years until you're sure you got away with it.

Or, I think I would find a way to hide in in the walls of my house, or maybe have it encased in cement and make it part of the back patio or something like that.

True story. A 4th or 5th cousin of mine embezzled 750,000 grand from her company. She got caught cause she was living like a King on an accountants salary. Not to bright. I think she's still in prison.
