Oh, and…

It’s all over but the cough, thanks for asking. The cough, however, is a beast. It got me out of bed at five am. I know that LTGF is tired of me shaking the bed trying to cough my guts out while she tries to sleep, so I stood in the bathroom coughing so hard […]

Ya know what rocks?

Get yourself a pack of these. (Get the ones with pits. The pitted ones aren’t as good. I don’t know why.) You’re gonna need two knives- a really sharp one and one suitable for spreading peanut butter. Use the sharp knife to cut out the pit, and then use the other one to fill the […]


This column pretty much sums up my feelings about the whole hit job the SCLM tried to do on Mrs. Howard Dean two weeks ago. What year is it, folks? The woman has a career… Stop asking her to be a vapid twit. Cookies, anyone? How about a nice, hot plate of Fuck you, I’m […]

poor little four-cyl.

My poor little Mazda pickup is having to pull a 5×8 UHaul trailer up to Athens, tomorrow. I loaded it tonight and then took it out to the highway to see how it handled the strain. It gets from A to B, but not cheerfully. There’s a couch, a buffet (which will double as the […]

Georgia rocks so hard

Oh, yeah… I am SOOOO glad to hear that we are removing the word “Evolution” from the state’s curriculae. The word “Evolution” is being replaced with “biological changes over time.” We’re turning the study of the origins of man into something about menopause. How did this happen? Georgia Secretay of Education Kathy Cox proves herself […]


As much as I would like for some random stranger to buy that $300 Zaurus Handheld for me, I have decided that I just can’t imagine what it would be like to have someone spend that kind of money for me and not get anything in return. Too emotionally complicated. On the other hand, I […]

Can’t decide

I went and set up an Amazon wish list, but never freed the monster to roam around in public… Not just because I didn’t have a mailing address in Athens until this morning, but because I can’t decide how I feel about the whole concept. Maybe if my birthday was coming up or something… But […]

somewhat better, thanks for asking

Yes, I am starting to feel a little better. Thanks for you emails and nice comments. A day in front of the fireplace and sipping tea has gone a long way towards healing this sick person. Add to that the undivided attention of my dogs and not much else to do, and today has been […]

Starting the new job

I start the new job on Monday. It’s worth mentioning that for the past five years, as new viruses have popped up- Melissa, SoBig, Slapper, and now MyDoom- I have checked to make sure that my machines weren’t vulnerable (and none of them have been) and then quietly thanked the fates while gloating that it’s […]

What they mean…

when they say “dry, unproductive cough,” is this spasmic hack that keeps one awake all night. (LTGF did not brain me with a fireplace tool, though I am sure that the thought crossed her mind at some point during the night…) I hate to keep blogging about this cold, but since I can’t seem to […]
