I'm going nytol. A smile on those whom I love. That's all of you. Each and every one of you.
TK: It is a natural born right, hit. Commenting at JOM is > or < Sandra Fluke's right to have you pay for her birth control?
Beasts: Sorry that I apologized, hit... No worries, we're all sorry that you apologized.
I've only had one experience in a Catholic mass. In the late 90s a seminary bud got married. I and two other seminary buds flew out to Oregon to attend his wedding. After the ceremony on Saturday, we were left thinking where we could attend church on Sunday. This was before the ease of google-fu and so I hit the hotel yellow pages. I naturally went straight toward the non-denominational churches, in line with the churches the three of us currently attended. But one of the others suggested we step oustide of our comfort zone. So we ended up at a Catholic church. It was a somber and reverential service. The time came for communion, and I honestly did not know the Catholic teaching on communion. So I went up front. I was lost as to the teaching and tradition, so it took a bit of coaching, much to my chagrin, but I received a blessing in lieu of taking the sacraments. To this day I appreciate and honor the manner in which the Catholic church upholds the sacrament of communion. I'm glad I had the opportunity to observe it first hand. It may be my first and last time to do so, but it won't ever not be a part of my spiritual memory.
TK: Infringement on one's right to how they roll. Is there a "right" to roll here?
Never apologize. It's a sign of weakness. Gibbs rule #6
rich: what is that in reference to beasts? Can I once again reiterate that the JOM Style Guide directs a commenter to quote or reference the comment/commenter to which he is responding. Personally, I try to take the time/effort to write the person's name, and after the colon, quote that to which I am responding in italics. Sure, this isn't for everyone and it isn't necessary in all situations. But then again, if it were universally applied, the harm would be what? #UpWithAntecedents
mrs hit and run and kids got home from Texas today. Her sister and sister's husband came back with them. Good times. mrs hit and run and I had some errands to run, so we had some alone time in the car. So I said to her . . . "you won't believe how many girls have been throwing themselves at me since I've been going to the pool hall without a wedding ring!" She stared at me for a second. Raised eyebrow and all. That second lingered on for what seemed like an hour. Finally, I gave in and made a "zero" sign pressing my index finger to my thumb. She played along and said, "you're right, I can't believe hot young things haven't been throwing themselves at you because you took your wedding ring off." I love her so gosh dang much.

Janet: We were all doomed because of methane...Methane was bad! Did you ask him to pull your finger?

Jane: Clearly I need to pay more attention. If you weren't in the background making blueberry buckle with Kerry, it would probably help.

Miss Marple: when he was governor his wife told my sister that he doesn't like her to wear slacks. But... I am almost positive he thought he was going to be veep when Hillary got the nomination over Obama. There might be a problem here...

ManTran: As it happens, our fairly knowledgable dinner companions deflected any correlation with Cheyenne Mountain. Apparently there's not a lot going on there after Stargate Command was decommissioned. ;) That's what "they" want us to think. I think the convoy was this year's Santa Tracking Unit.

A person I don't like who drinks about the same amount as I do is an alcoholic. A person I do like who drinks about the same amount as I do should probably consider cutting back a little for health reasons.

Janet: He yelled that out 3 days before the huge 9-12-2009 Rally. A huge tea party rally would make a good JOM meet up event.

*My take wasn't that narc sent an email*
Toggle Commented 3 days ago on Saturday AM at JustOneMinute
My take wasn't that narc didnt send an email. He was asking if anyone had his email addy, presumably to get him and JiB in contact.
Toggle Commented 3 days ago on Saturday AM at JustOneMinute
Good morning. narciso, I sent an email to you and JiB, if that is the reason for your query about anyone having your email. Although, if it is not, well, then that doesn't change the fact that I sent the email to you and JiB, I suppose. Anyone else stay up 'til almost 5am? I ain't in no ways am tired.

Beasts: @hit: hate to disappoint, but I already told Steph that I'll be making the trip sans cart girl(s), bartender(s), waitress(es), and/or nurse(s). Note my qualifier of "met the night before". I'm not saying you're bringing one with you... Are you familiar with Logan Mize?

Seriously, though, Harf and Psaki look exactly like what SNL would cast to portray State Dept personnel. Or maybe.... Announcer: "Weekend Update", with Jen Psaki and Marie Harf. Psaki: Good evening, I'm Jennifer Psaki! But you can call me Jen. And the P is silent, by the way. Harf: I'm Marie Harf! My last name rhymes with . . . hah, never mind. Psaki: Scarf? You were going for scarf, weren't you? Harf: Yes, that's it! Whew, thought I was going to throw up there for a second. Psaki: And here are tonight's top stories! My former colleague Alyssa Mastromonaco defines smart, savvy and fashionable. Harf: Also in the news, #hashtags.
