Thanksgiving sucked..but its getting better all the time.

I cooked food I couldn't eat. I bitched about it the entire time. No one had sympathy for moi but they loved my candied yams and stuffing. I comandeered the stuffing once I figured out how to eat it thru the pain.

I was supposed to work on Thanksgiving but I said "fuck da man" and stayed home. I think I am building up a tolerance for Vicodin dammit. The Vic's however did give me the balls to tell my boss to kiss my ass. She has now hired someone to take part of my work load and is flying down Thursday to kiss MY ass. Neat eh?

I am going to give in to the ball and chains incessant whining and go to Vegas for two count em two days..its colder than shit over there right now but who goes outside whilst in sin city? He's paying all the expenses plus...JOE BONAMASSA IS GOING TO BE THERE!

All three of my regular readers know of my love for all things Joe B. This could perhaps be the reason I let the b&c talk me into this short excursion. Plus I told my boss I was going and if she didnt like it she could take a long walk off a very short pier.

I went back to the Dentist finally yesterday..he got out the heavy equipment and fixed up my new hardware so it actually hurts less! Praise be to Allah..er to Demitri the Dentist. I still cant eat a fucking thing other than yogurt and soup but the pain is no longer constant.

There will be friends to visit with in Vegas, there are some making the trip from the farthest reaches of our fair country. I am still crabby however and sound like I have a mouth-ful of marbles when I talk. I will simply smile alot and take lots and lots of pain meds. I will not however make the same mistake as John Q. Public and mix booze and pills..for moi a small bowl of herb and a couple Vicodin will do me up just right. Its only 48 hours but I am looking forward to the diversion.

I will of course blog from Vegas, I have no life after the music stops....gambling is boring and since I cant drink what the hell else is there..oh yeah..a cheap hooker for John Q...should be fun..

Jenn my dear..I will chat you up tonite sweetie :)

Alice..thanks for the xmas gift..do you need my addy sweetie?

Bruce..have you purchased a JOE B. cd yet? if not I know what you are getting for Xmas wink wink..

I feel guilty as hell for bailing on my job.....NOT!!!!!!!

Hope my son doesnt lose any of my kittens in the house whilst I am gone..he hates keeping track of them for fear I will disinherit him when I return. Shit, half of nothing is still nothing right?

Have a good, glorious and grand Tuesday sportsfans!

Todays visual..courtesy of John Q. Public..a man of honor


and a wicked sense of humor I might add..
















my dental surgery went off without a hitch..i got a great smile and i cant eat anything harder than yogurt..with turkey day coming up..this sucks moose balls..but hey..means I dont have to cook!

My dentist is a trip..he was going to give me a prescription for a dozen vicoden..i told him to save it..i had some already since i got two blown discs..

he asked: how many?
I said: 90
he said: how many?
i repeated :90
he then said: could I have some?

when i went to blow my nose and couldnt due to the novacaine numbness up to my sinus cavity..he said: After we are done with your mouth, we give free nose piercings..my assisant will show you our selection of nose rings later..

I love a man with a warped sense of humor.

gotta go..the meds are kicking in..

happy thanksgiving..eat some good stuff for moi.. :)

Pete Rose Jr. pleads guilty to distributing drugs

The man has all the brains(or lack thereof) of his daddy evidently. He plead guilty in federal court to dealing the drug GBL to his minor league teammates. He faces a couple years in the federal pen and a hefty one million dollar fine. When taken orally this drug becomes GHB otherwise known as the "date rape" drug.

Fall and Football

T.O...is no mo..at least for awhile at the Eagles lockeroom. This is a good thing although you wouldnt know it by the game the Eagles played today..ho hum..from the penthouse to the outhouse for the Eagles. The wheels are coming off..an upbeat item is that Brian Westbrook played and kept his mouth shut. HE was rewarded with a five year contract.

The Bengals have a grip on first..yes..those Bengals..

Dick Vermeil is a freak..I love that man.

Touchdown Jesus got another win this week, whilst UCLA got their freaking clock cleaned. The Hokies lost their first game. It must of been grim in Blacksburg.

A female, Kim Ng has thrown her hat in the ring to become the GM for the LA Dodgers. She used to work for Steinbrenner. I dont know if thats good or bad. If she gets the job she wont be home in time to make dinner, you can take that to the bank. I don't think she's the best or the worst candidate for the job.

I finally got the wear my new fuzzy slippers this week. Its gotten fall-like..it could be a cruel joke, but I hope not.

Balco's Dr. Frankenstein indicted by Fed. Grand Jury

Patrick Arnold, esteemed scientist and chemist, was indicted by a Federal Grand Jury for conspiring with the jackass owner of Balco, Victor Conte to distribute the once-undetectable substance tetrahydragestrinone, referred to by Barroid Bonds, Jason Giambi and others as "the clear". Arnold, was known for introducing the steroid precursor androstenedione to the United States. Nicknamed andro, the chemical came to public attention in 1998 when St. Louis Cardinals slugger Mark McGwire said he used it the year he broke baseball's single-season home run record.

The drug pushers that ran Balco have all received reduced sentences, most likely for snitching out their suppliers like Arnold. Conte was sentenced to four months in prison and four months' home confinement after negotiating a plea deal with federal prosecutors. Greg Anderson, Bonds' personal trainer, was sentenced to three months behind bars and three months in home confinement after pleading guilty to money laundering and a steroid distribution charge. Anderson and Bonds have been friends since childhood. Balco Vice Prez James Valente was sentenced to three years' probation and track coach Remi Korchemny is expected to receive probation at his February sentencing.

OH YEAH..give me a drug that will shrink nads, possibly give me a tumor or cancer of the brain and/or liver, destroy most of the muscles and tendons in my arms and legs all so I can hit a ball out of the park, run faster or pitch the next day..athletes..ya gotta love their priorities..

The POWER of 1

Rosa Parks was buried today. This tiny little woman with her glasses sitting on the bridge of her nose has gone on to the other side.

I love what Barack Obama said today about her: "And yet when the history of this country is written, it is this small, quiet woman whose name will be remembered long after the names of senators and presidents have been forgotten."



Thank you Mrs. Parks for your contribution to our world.God Bless you and keep you with him sweet woman.

Wal-Mart, the high cost of those low prices.


This documentary opens today..probably not mainstream but it opens nonetheless..I am not a fan of Wally World..I hate them and their useless underpaid, uninsured employees. I hate their habit of going into areas and opening a ton of stores when just a couple will do. I think the majority of their products are cheap, horribly-made and will very seldom last past a year. The majority of their products are made outside the US. The founder Sam Walton, was a tight-ass of legendary status. That man could squeeze a nickel till it screamed. The employees are usually uneducated and in alot of instances bordering on mentally disabled, since intelligent people wont work for a company that pays so little and expects so much in return. Their benefits are non-existant unless of course your in management..THEN they take care of you, but not on the level of most corporations their size. There are now groups out there dedicated to bringing this huge corporation to their knees, and sportsfans, they do their homework. Walmart's growth has slowed to a trickle over the last few years and for this fact alone I am very happy. Two watchdog groups are at the forefront of taking down Sam Walton's baby..Walmart Watch and Wake up Walmart both of whom have the exec's at Wally World shaking in their collective boots. Walmart now has a war-room, hiring some of the best PR spin doctors in the business to change the way we view them. Walmarts stock as dropped drastically(27% since 2000) and the people they covet the most, middle america are shunning them due to bad publicity and high profile personnel problems/lawsuits. I love this part of the article regarding a report that Wally World itself commissioned : A confidential 2004 report prepared by McKinsey & Company for Wal-Mart, and made public by Wal-Mart Watch, found that 2 percent to 8 percent of Wal-Mart consumers surveyed have ceased shopping at the chain because of "negative press they have heard."

There is a very good article in the NY Times today regarding Wally's War Room and the people that oppose this corporations raping of America. The link to the article is here. If you shop at Wally World do yourself a favor and at least read the article or view the websites I have linked before you shop there again.
