We need a countdown to her next Debcourt date. Maybe a calandar or banner that says "30 more stalking days til Frischmas". "Debcourt in 30 days".

My hands down favorite (although,
they all were hysterical) is
Fatwa's rendition of, "Have
Yourself a Scary Little Frischmas."
Still singing it to myself!

I almost think it would be easier to pick my favorite Playmate of the Year.

At any rate, though it wasn't entered under the "official" thread, sulla's adaptation of The Raven was positively brilliant.

I am going camping for the weekend, see y'all on Monday. If there is a code red while I'm gone someone have the Michigan State Police track me down, I can be back to my computer in 4 hours.

The creature is stirring:

jooish blud
I ran into my neighbor Ted this morning when Kiva and I went for a stroll in the cool, almost crisp air. Ted and Lindy are my only overtly Christian friends. Ted is one of my favorite friends.

When my ex and I bought this house in 1994, we were approached by the Browns. They own 80 acres in a neighborhood with mostly 5 acre plots. They were very friendly and told us they allowed people in the neighborhood to use trails through their property for horseback riding and for access to a huge lake on the property adjacent to theirs. They also invited us to come to their church.

We followed up on the offer of the lake, where we’d swim with our dogs. I guess back then it was Cody and Nick, the wolf-shepherd mix that was part of L’s paque when we met.

We didn’t follow up on the church invitation. Lindy kept inviting us and finally, we said yes to a homemade ice cream party, partly to appease Lindy and partly for the ice cream.

Over the years, Ted and I have become friends. He was listening to NPR the day in October, 2001 I was interviewed by Richard Harris and that jolted our relationship to a new level.

This morning, I told him briefly about what was going on. I told him I had to stop joking about dieu, even though I did not like any of my choices (Jewish or Christian or other). I told him that my parents were Jewish and that that meant that I was Jewish. End of discussion.

He said “Well, yeah. You’ve got Jewish blood.”

Then he said that one of his oldest friends, from college died last year. Ted was a student at Stanford University around 1960. Engineering, I think but I am not sure. Joel Shulman and Ted were in a fraternity together that was Christian in name but not in practice (I gather that in practice, it was a typical fraternity with focus on beer and broads.)

One day, a representative from ATO (Alpha Tao Omega?) showed up and said there could not be Jews in the fraternity. Then an offer was made that Joel could stay, but that he could not participate in the quasi-mystical ceremony.

A meeting was held and Ted said “Well, if Joel can’t go through the ceremony, I’m not going through the ceremony.” Others agreed and the pressure from the anti-Semite from Alabama was resisted. It was written up in several newspapers, including the New York Times. Ted described it is an example of civil rights activism. I don’t usually think of the fight against anti-Semitism as part of the 60s civil rights activism. But it really was.

Thank you to Palo Alto, CA for saying no to anti-Semitism from Alabama.

Maybe it’s time to send another message to the faux kristians from the southeast who make laws that mock the intent of the founding fathers, make a mockery of science, etc.

I'm bailing early today too. Taking the bf to Key West for fishing, diving, and Teh Vodka® for his birthday!

OT, but I'm excited. I just got a call from someone I know who posts a column on Townhall. Wants me to edit it. I'm so flattered!

I think this cray zee lay dee is really starting to ephing like us! Wouldn't it be kind of cool if we brought her to the sane side? Imagine the psychological finding that politics can ephe up someone's sanity...LOL. JK, because I have seen some crazy people on the far right too.

 
At 8:36 AM, Blogger Staci said...

Wow, I actually agree with her. Fricken scary.

And I never knew ATOs were a Christian group. My dad wanted me to do the greek thing, but there was no way I was going to be in a sorority. But I told him I would do little sister. He wanted me to do Pikes or ATOs, because that was his and my uncle's frats. At the time, he was pissing me off. So there was a new frat there for only a few years from a bunch of Miami guys who I knew. I joined it. It was pretty mixed, but the SAMs were nationally known as a Jewish frat. And there was none of that crap. We even had Jerry Seinfield come and do a show before he made it big. Pretty cool.

 
At 8:38 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

They were all brilliant, but in the end there can be only one.

I have to vote for Sulla's adaptation to The Raven as well.

It may be found in comments to post Open Thread on Wednesday, August 23, 2006.

 
At 8:57 AM, Blogger Blizzardlane said...

The Stanford ATO chapter in 1961 actually had FOUR Jewish members and left the national organization for four years. In 1964, ATO changed its charter to abandon restrictive enrollment on the basis of color, religion and so on.

Of course, Our Deb uses this "history" to claim yet another "victim" status and as a cudgel with which to bash Kooky Kristians and the U.S. Southeast.

Even when she can find the right side, she can't manage not to fark it up. What a maroon.

 
At 9:35 AM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Carol -

Thanks sincerely for the vote...that means I'll get at least one. Woo hoo!

I had to be fair and brutally honest by casting my vote for Sulla; he really should get a "lifetime achievement award" for his poetry work thus far.

Which is not to denigrate several other fine contributors; I pondered (but not "weak and weary") more than a little before voting.

By the way, didn't Sinner mention that teh winner has to by a round of WTF for teh gang? I'm sure he said that somewhere.

Hate to post and run, but I've gotta skedaddle to take care of some errands.

See y'all later for cocktails; best of luck to all the contestants!

 
At 9:37 AM, Blogger Staci said...

I wish I was poetic. Oh well.

This article concerning Colbert is interesting:

http://apnews.myway.com/article/20060824/D8JN2E000.html

I do wonder if the dear Dr. Deb has seen this. It provides links on the bottom and MAYBE by haunting them, who knows.

 
At 9:42 AM, Blogger Fred the Genius said...

northwesterner & oregonmuse:

On Wednesday I came across an online service known as OJIN, the Oregon Judicial Information Network. You can find it HERE.

Unless I’m mistaken, the general public can access all the information in this database at any circuit court in the state for free. They might even provide transcripts. I for one would love to see the judge’s response to being called an “ephing pissant.”

Either of you guys up to performing what I’m sure would be a much appreciated community service?

 
At 9:46 AM, Blogger Rabbit said...

She unveils her ignorance in every new post.

I guess she never knew that alot of the civil rights workers that died were Jewish. They got involved because of their own discrimination history.

She may be crazy, she may be a substance abuser but one thing she surely is: Pure Evil.

 
At 10:08 AM, Blogger James said...

unlurking.

I'm not saying this was taken from a hidden webcam in Eugene.

I'm just saying it COULD have been.

(warning: video. loud, obnoxious video.)

 
At 10:29 AM, Blogger Northwesterner said...

Damn. I leave the innertubes for RL for half a day and this place explodes!

This is my formal vote for Sulla's "The Raven" rejoinder a la Frisch. It's too good to deny. Sorry I didn't get a try, I don't know why, all I can do is cry, but I mighta gotten by if you'da let me fly.

Since I can't be the winner
I'm gonna sue Sinner!

& Fred, I'll give it a try even though I've wasted hours already catching up on yesterday's news.

 
At 10:35 AM, Blogger Northwesterner said...

Dude, there's a $295 set-up fee plus $10 a month for OJIN. Too bad, 'cause I know she's left a slime trail through both our civil and our criminal court records.

 
At 10:36 AM, Blogger Northwesterner said...

Speaking of slime trail, tonight is the annual Slug Queen competition. The Slug Queen will reign over the You Jean Celebration that happens in September--you know, Harvest Season.

 
At 10:42 AM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...

[grumbling, slowly releases folded paper in ballot box]
I guess... I'll have to... vote for... Sulla too.
[rassafrackin Raven, beat me to it]

Sulla definitely deserves it, but I would like to see it finished, when he has the time.

What I'm really happy about is how teh frischness®, even with an Instapundit mention, did not crack 2000 hits over the last 2 days. She even paid a visit (erased now, thanks Sinner) on a thread last night.

Starve the Beast! Then she can get some (probably court-ordered) help.

That fee is for guys like me, who don't live in Oregon.

At 11:11 AM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Damn. Went Frisching last night...used really nice Frisch bait as you guys saw, yet not even a nibble. How depressing.

Sorry if it seemed a bit abrupt or out of character. It was for a reason, and it flopped. Oh well.

I'm gonna have to vote for my own. Sorry, must be the narcissist in me.

Back to eating my dry Kellogs Cinnamon Crispers. Mmmmmm...that's good Diabetes bait.

 
At 11:20 AM, Blogger Northwesterner said...

WTF?! It appeared that Sinner had deleted a comment but I wasn't sure because didn't he say he wouldn't do that and that the one time he did do it (early on, not yesterday) he regretted it?

Whyfor, sweet Sinner?

Okay, fred. You're the genius. I'll try OJIN again.

 
At 11:21 AM, Blogger Justhereforthebeer said...

The Colbert article was in the Eugene Register Guard on line version today http://www.registerguard.com/news/2006/08/25/a1.colbert.0825.p1.php?section=nation_world

Yes the OJIN is where I found her arraignment earlier this week.

If you are a local you can go to the court and access the information for free. It would be nice to see the court documents.

 
At 11:23 AM, Blogger Northwesterner said...

fred,

You really believe that I am so obsessed with this story that I will hie myself downtown on my lunch hour & jack into the courthouse computer?

(Lunch is at noon, BTW.)

I wonder if they charge for printing stuff out? Hm.

 
At 11:29 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Uhm, Northwesterner, the deleted Frischiness may have been (inadvertently) my fault.

I posted something...indiscrete, and begged Sinner to delete it since the trashcan thing doesn't work for me.

Frisch may have been caught in the clean up effort.

 
At 11:30 AM, Blogger Fred the Genius said...

Not anymore.

It's probably just as well. Judging from THIS, it doesn't sound as if there's much info available that we don't already know.

 
At 11:32 AM, Blogger Northwesterner said...

Talk about indiscrete: was denny's salt-lick joke the most disgusting post ever at this blog?

 
At 11:42 AM, Blogger Northwesterner said...

I beg to differ. There is much you don't know.

 
At 12:03 PM, Blogger Fred the Genius said...

There is much you don't know.

Did you mean about the court case or...like...in general? Or perhaps both?

 
At 12:16 PM, Blogger tim said...

Yeah, nw-er...please tell :)

 
At 12:54 PM, Blogger Staci said...

Darn. I gotta go.

You have a great weekend. I'm gonna hit Teh Vodka!

 
At 1:02 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

I'm voting for fatwa's "scary little frischmas." It's got a beat and you can hum along. Solid meter, and just plain fun. I can almost hear Billie Holliday crooning by a crackling fire, roasting chestnuts.

Thanks for the kind words, folks. Who would have thought politics would help me break into poetry? :)

 
At 1:11 PM, Blogger Northwesterner said...

Blogger went down for a bit, at least for me. Rebooted the network, went outside for a smoke & to consult with someone else who is intimately familiar with Teh Frisch story.

Problem with going to the court house & rattling old bones is that just in case anyone has tangled with D in the past, they wouldn't want to be dragged into this. Could you blame them?

And I was warned not to be posting here; trust me, I waited a long time to jump in (tho I was ghostin her blog way before y'all came on board). Finally, I couldn't resist because here are people who f*k*n* understand just how wrong she is! A whole community of them! In fact, a witty, smart, poetic, supportive circle of unlikely comrades.

So I'm sorry I can't do the courthouse trip. But, like many of you, I still can't turn away.

& btw, just to be perfectly clear: I want what everybody else here (I mean IRL) wants. I want her to get help--counseling, medication, whatever it takes--pick herself up, turn her life around, get a nonteaching job, stop picking fights, be okay, and stay away.

 
At 1:20 PM, Blogger tim said...

Understood, nw-er...

Discretion is the better part of valor. :)

 
At 1:23 PM, Blogger Northwesterner said...

You are so kind, Tim.

 
At 1:39 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

amen, nw'er.

 
At 1:47 PM, Blogger Rabbit said...

northwesterner,
were you the original angela on her log for the last 2 years?

 
At 2:06 PM, Blogger Rabbit said...

She's got another boring post up.

Don't bother going to the jump-its a link to some really boring post from 2005 about autism & math.

She does say that a family member thought her story about the Mexican stealing her wallet wasn't good. I wonder how that family member views the other vile crap she has said?

I'm not sure that's what I want, even as an abstraction. 'Cause I know it's not possible. For all the talk around her of bi-polar yada yada yada, I just don't think that's what she has. The cycles are wrong & a bunch of stuff. No, she's got something else wrong. People I've talked to who know more than me (about psych and la Frischie) say narcissistic personality disorder (that seems to be the most popular) or anti-social personality disorder. Everyone agrees Dunning-Kruger syndrome is extremely present in Deb.

If you read the literature on people with Narcissistic Personality Disorder, treatment is usually difficult and not effective. Anti-Socials - they pretty much can't be treated.

In any case, I'd love it if Deb became a nice person. I'd also love it if I won the Powerball lottery when the prize gets back up to $200,000,000. Neither one of those things is going to happen. {Deb - wouldn't you agree with this evaluation? Professionally speaking, I mean?]

That all said, I'm hoping for a more realistic next step. One I think is achievable, even if only for the short term: Dance monkey!!!!

Bottoms up!

At 2:24 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...

I agree with Tuna on the Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Some symptoms match Borderline Personality Disorder too. Both are extremely difficult to treat. People with these disorders should not be in situations which excacerbate the triggers, especially jobs which put them in positions of authority. I predict that any professional help she receives will be forced on her.

That being said, until the courts act: More poo flingin' monkey dancin'!

Yeah...it musta been the WTF vodka.

Stoopid beeyotch chooses to forget that it was largely Christians from the Southeast who WERE the Founding Fathers.

But then here she is writing paeans to people of character for their stands against anti-semitism, when she's copped to being anti-semitic her own self.

And did you check out her poem about Tucson?

She LOVES it now... but a few weeks ago it was nought but a big litter box.

I'm thinking that she balances the depressive effect of teh WTF Vodka with a "pick-me-up" of teh Meth.

Sure would 'splain a lot about her "sit n' spin" 180' reversals of opinion, wouldn't it?

At 3:55 PM, Blogger Sinner said...

Yes a bunch of stuff was deleted...

Not to censor, but to clean up. There are very few rules here, but one was broken (a link to Dr. Deb) and it was removed. I looked at the thread and having that comment gone made a bunch of other comments look, well, stupid. To I took out the pickaxe and wailed away on anything that refered to the deleted message.

If your comment got caught up in my zeal to clean up, I am very sorry.

WTF Vodka on the house!

Hi, I'm Troy McClure! You might remember me from such public service videos as "Designated Drivers, the Lifesaving Nerds" and "Phony Tornado Alarms Reduce Readiness."

how did i acquire you?

For me, your actions on protein wisdom. That put you on the radar. Your actions since have kept you there.

how can i unacquire you?

Do you really want to know?

Or are you just asking?

Because if you're talking about opening negotiations...

I am in the academic/"publish or die" world, so I get some interesting items in the mail - this one goes just too perfectly for all involved in DHD: Writer's Digest Poetry Contest for 2006!

"We're pleased to announce the only WD competition exclusively for poets, the Writer's Digest Poetry Awards! Regardless of style—rhyming, free verse, haiku and more—if your poems are 32 lines or fewer, we want them all. Submit your entries by the December 20, 2006 deadline ... and your words could be worth cold hard cash!

First Place: $500
Second Place: $250
Third Place: $100
Fourth Through Tenth Place: $25
Eleventh Through Twenty-Fifth Place: $50 gift certificate to Writer's Digest Books

Plus, the names and poem titles of all First- through Tenth-Place winners will be printed in the August issue of Writer's Digest, and all winners will receive a copy of the 2007 Poet's Market."

$500 would pay for a lot (1-2,000 bottles!) of WTF Paper Label Rose!

You just don't have the right touch, HD. Different of my sockpuppets have had varying levels of success in getting posted. And of course, there is no way she will post a comment labeled John Henry. I do try from time to time, just to keep my hand in though.

However,one of my puppets has never failed to get posted. Right now s/he is 14 for 14.

There seem to be a couple secrets, which I will not divulge here, for getting posted.

If anyone wants to know the tricks I can be reached via the "Deb's Ma Bitch" blog at www.dfrisch.blogspot.com

She does say that a family member thought her story about the Mexican stealing her wallet wasn't good. I wonder how that family member views the other vile crap she has said?
++++++++++++

Rabbitt,

I, as John Henry, had said the same thing. She accused the waiter of stealing her wallet because he was Mexican. I said that in her comments and she actually posted it.

I just went back to look and there are now no comments at all in that post.

I still think (and had commented in the same post) that this is the funniest part:
+++++

"If you are still reading, you’re probably wondering why I had so much cash stashed and/or what the unfortunate incident was. The reason I had twenty-five twenty dollar bills was that I like to have a sizable chunk of cash on hand in Tucson case the sh*t hits the fan and/or all h*ll breaks loose. I’m not sure why I think U.S. currency would have much currency if the USA went kaput (peak oil, global warming, avian and/or swine flu, terrorist attack, economic collapse, civil war, etc.) but for some reason, I do."
++++

I can't decide which is funnier:

That she thinks $500 is a "sizable chunk" of cash

That she somehow thinks it will last her any length of time

or

That $500 in paper money will have any value whatsoever if the world ends as she thinks it might.

Sometimes the old crazee is the best crazee.

John

Looks like she's been suckered in by that "peak oil" crap as well.

Nice to see that she's figured out how to get a blogger identity, though.
