ps : .."find it hard to be methodical and orderly on this blog. My posts are scattered, I jump from this to that, harum scarum. I think this is because there is just so much I could say, it overwhelms I overcome that by simply jumping in and writing the first thing that comes to mind. Otherwise, I'd give up and write nothing." Jane, you're in good company.I just started Mark Twain's autobiography . ( He didn't want it out 'til 100 yrs after death) After many false starts, he came to the conclusion that that is the only way to go . Write what is of interest at the moment , and only as long as it is interesting, then drop it, and move on to the next topic of interest .
Hi Jane. Ran across this by accident . Here's another Accordion Babe for your collection . It's not your (my) grandmother's polka band. :))))

The person responsible for the sign( & likely a young, two-legged houseplant, unfamiliar with pussy willows) probably either misread , or couldn't read, the source(invoice,note,list,screen, etc) that inspired him/her to make the sign . Have seen it plenty of times in the local grocery chain. Also ocasionally in the local installments of the various Idiotmarts. ( Of which, Walmart/Sam's Club is the leading practitioner. ) ;)

Saw that. See the latest, a Salinger fantasy? :) "Crows are Nazis" ?lol More like the Hogan's Heroes variety . I've always thought of them as comic relief . (Making woodpecker drilling noises, stealing the rubber washers on the metal garage roof, stealing my keys, etc)

(Belated 2c) Dear Queen Non-Schmoe, Being made aware of others' struggles, and sometimes pathos, might give a fuller, and ealier appreciation for his life, with you & The Skimmer. Might even spur him to avoid some pitfalls/fools' gold/traps, etc., that come his way, that might lead to dead ends that trip up many. As for Eldrick Jr, famous people, are just people, and the public image isn't always (almost never?) the same as reality. . The sooner that realization sinks in, the better. Ps, standing O for Jennifer . :) *clap,clap*

Wake up your inner cavewoman, BG. Replacing some of your lights with wide/full spectrum bulbs can help. ( That is if you don't mind ruining the sad mood. ;) If there's reasons, np, if there's no reason at all, maybe.

Saw that. Good to see Taibbi's stayed consistent. Would have been disappointing if he became an Obama apologist. Here's a couple others ,from Cocktailhag and Arthur Silber. A followup here. (Can't link it directly, so scroll down to post of Oct. 10) If you have to argue with the imperial cheerleaders (such as at the WaPoo) , Silber has some good points on how not to do it, in Fools For Empire (Part II, with link to Part I)

Good luck Skimmer. :) Snag, I had the avatar a couple times, after coming here from another typepad site that gives one to everybody. Came back a few minutes later, and it was gone. ?????

"Hey, don't let me stop you.... newspaper editors are much more lenient than zombies Especially at the WaPoo. They hired William "AlwaysWrong" Kristol ferchrissakes! So, I've decided I'm going to start out all my Washington Post op-eds with that phrase. Lol :) What if ( as Arlo Guthrie once asked) everybody did that? (& include it in every post @ WaPoo)It'd become a movement. The He's-a-handsome-man-but-I'm-gonna-say-something-stupid-in-the-service-of-my-sponsors-to-give-Blue-Girl-in-a-Blue-State-something-to-write-about-and-insurance-and-phamaceutical-industry-freedom(for them)-crusade. ;)

:) Looks like my mother at my sister's wedding . ( minus the bridal outfit ;) OT , BG ( & others), WaPoo is looking for a new columnist. Given the current lineup, any & all in the BG-o-sphere would be a vast improvement. Plus, if you do a good job, you can get a status-improving firing, like Froomkin;)

" Eat it and praise me!” Lol! They should. (probably :) Tobasco? Pshaw! Something else would be more appropriate.(Mmmmmm! :))

^BK looks sharp. & Em too. (I need an edit button.) Re the email( that won't work at the moment- ??) : h/t driftglass . ( Don't want to be on the MoDo train-to-hell ;)

BK looks sharp. Sweet post BG . :) prom inmates.. I think handcuffs, ropes and tasers are involved. Lol! Way back when, a lot of us felt the same way, so set up a non-prom prom, including a dress code of wearing something you already had. (Due to a death in the family , I missed that too.) Also, we were dismayed at the thought of some sappy-crappy Air Supply song as our prom theme legacy , even if many of us weren't going to be there. We started a write-in campaign, that was ultimately successful. Let the Good Times Roll eked it out over Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers . You'd have fit right in, BG. :)

Nothing wrong with you finding the humor in Frances Farmer's situations, especially 60+ years after the fact. The "crazy people" (just quoting ;) laugh about it as much as anyone . Keeps 'em from going insane. I've had some good yuks in the psychiatric ward (visiting ;) , discussing such things . Relax, BG. You're fine. :)
