Dr.Deb Frisch, PhD.,
Your most recent post on the DHD blog indicates that you will be incarcerated for the weekend and perhaps longer. Your Probation Officer will note this remark. The only question you should consider at this stage is which Probation Officer, and in which state, will be making this report (or reports). The possibilities are Arizona, Colorado and Oregon ( to the extent of my knowledge of the matter).

Please remeber that aggravating circumstances are significant contributing factors in the security level you will be assigned in whichever facility you are assigned to.
Again, the Probation Officers and attorneys familiar with this matter thank you.

No, I am not him, but it is a marvelous night for a moon dance.
And the prosecutors and attorneys thank you.

Ms. Frisch:

You're not at yeeargh! level yet. But please, tell us about jail, and the stalking and harrassment charges.

You're late for your Turing test.

And please tell us about the harassment and stalking charges; that's what we want you to talk about tonight.

Deb, research shows that jobs abound for decision making psychowhatsits in Saudia Arabia. If u r looking for employment, try heading over there. You would be away from your legal problems and well on you way to an exciting and high paying career. Don't wait. Move now. And you can still befuddle us with your wit cuz the interttubes go to the Saudis, too.

 
At 6:41 PM, Blogger Yoda said...

Dear Deb Frisch, PhD.,
It is not uncommon for convicted felons to "party their way out" the night before they are incarcerated. Please note that you will be tested for drugs and alcohol use prior to your admittance to the general population. If you fail such tests, you will be put in what is known as the SHU (Special Housing Unit)...that is an acronym.
You will remain there until it is determined by the Security Officer in Charge and the local PA ( Physician's Assistant...Tip: She is your friend) that you are lucid and can be placed in the GP (General Population)

I'm wondering if all the looking for dates is a pawtheic attempt to get back with Cecile? We know C. is reading her blog daily. Is all this other womyn talk to make C. jealous?

Joe's right, she really is just trying to juice up her stats by trying to get us to follow her there.

DEB,

I have held back up until tonight. But after soiling what was supposed to be a nice tribute to a great American, I'm afraid I'm going to have to take "It Up A Notch”.

I wish a pox on you. I hope you spend the rest of your life in jail. The only thing that would make me happier is for you to succumb to a deadly itchy disease in your nether regions.

I think I could stomach it if she knew how to capitalize, but we're talking about Ms. Frisch.

We VBSers, as normal people would not think that way.(getting her to take us back).

Deb thinks in bizzaro world, so it would make sense to her that if she makes Cecile jealous she can get her back.

Remember the person that said Deb was the more laid-back "Saner" of the two?

I agree, the lack of news from Nedra or Boo Kitty is alarming. Given Boo Kitty's Deb-like rage, it doesn't look good.

My comment at SWP yesterday, in case you missed it.

You know Deb, you constantly babble about soldiers--whom you’ve described as dupes, by the way--having died for nothing. You apparently think they’re all over there desperately hoping you and your twisted brethren will somehow manage to rescue them. Well, let me tell you a little story I read in my hometown paper about two of those soldiers; one from my home state, the other from Alaska.

Their names were Michael James Oxlong and Phillip Raymond Davis (aka Yukon Phil). They got separated from their unit during a heated battle in the dead of night, about 70 km north of Baghdad. Having no means of contacting their base, they walked until dawn, being careful to avoid any roads, which the enemy would surely be watching. Fortunately, they came upon what looked to be an abandoned terrorist encampment, where they were able to take shelter. Not sure exactly where they were, but knowing they were smack dab in the middle of enemy occupied territory, they decided to hole up there until their unit could find them.

Well, to make a long story short, they were ultimately rescued…after THREE days. As you can imagine, they got awfully hungry. While searching the bunkers for something to eat, Phil found an old discarded bag of cheese puffs. He looked inside and, lo and behold, there was one cheese puff left in the bag. He called to Mike, “Hey, look what I found,” laughing. Now, here’s the extraordinary part: Phil broke the cheese puff in half and gave one half to Mike!

So you see, Deborah, these brave men and women don’t need YOU! I know this for a fact! And it really does just boil down to something as simple as this:

Mike Oxlong and Yukon Phil ate a Cheeto®!

What's everyone getting up to with their weekend?

I'm having friends over and bar-b-queing on Monday. We got your ribs riiiiight here, and your corn on the cob, some potato salad (mustard, natch) and southern-style baked beans.

 
At 7:03 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

I'm reading the John Adams biography by David McCullough. Pretty interesting.

I've been fascinated by Adams since I saw the musical 1776. Hearing a call for "independency" from KITT from Knight Rider always brings a smile to my face. Even as I think back on just how hard we had to fight to get people to believe in the CONCEPT of a free America.

There's a song that brings me to tears every time, about those who died.

We're prepping for our big trip in January; the wife and I are going to China to visit my parents. They're teachers in Xi'an.

Until then, it's short jaunts. Anything too far away for KFI's Eye in the Sky to care about is close enough.

At 7:13 PM, Blogger OregonMuse said...

As usual, I miss all the fun. We're gettin us some damn fine crazee this evening, boy oh boy.

But in an earlier thread, tesla asked:

Has Deb shown even the smallest sign that she is aware of what she is doing?

You bet. Deb has admitted to being a stalker in more than one blog post and even wonders why that would be part of her personality. She also sometimes refers to herself as "the crazee lay dee" and has gone so far as to publicly question whether being filled with rage is really doing her any good.

It is my belief that she has these moments of lucidity but chooses not to act on them, because it's much more fun to go with the flow of her rage rather than to behave responsibly.

In my uninformed opinion, she would not be able to use the insanity defense in any criminal proceeding. She has shown too much self-awareness for that.

At 7:26 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

yoda,

Sorry, I skipped off to MS Word to prepare a letter for the Doc.

In answer to your question, yes.

I couldn't explain it in one little thread posting, but we are winning the war, as a matter of fact, I think I can say at one point it was won. But starting with the DemPrimary debates in 2003-04, we told the bastards that we are politically split and if you just stay active, you'll stay in the news. So they turned from full offenses to blowing us up in our vehicles. The news reports that every night.

They wouldn't tell you about successful election or referendums on the constitution but damn it give us the IEDs.

Liberals have more blood on their hands than do the great American they like to call Chicken Hawks.

The North Yoda, is the biggest joke. The Kurds have been trying to get their success story out since right after they stabilized their region after the major fighting was done. They've tried to get news people by there, just a success story doesn't fit the adjenda they want the American people to see. I've been there. I walked the streets amoungst their people and didn't feel any different than walking around downtown Fayetteville.

Truman is also excellent.

I started 1776 earlier in the summer, but work has consumed pretty much every waking hour.

Including holidays. I'll be here at least through Sunday, and at dinner heard if we don't finish then, it's day to day.

A good friend's husband is in the 4ID currently on his second tour. He's spent a lot of time in Baghdad this time and has had very different experiences than the first time. He's a tanker and the only time he fired any weapon the first tour was when they had to "test" the main gun of the tank on the range. The area he was in was and is peaceful and moving on. They had clean water and regular electricity for the first time ever. The MSM don't go outside of Baghdad for the most part and so we end up hearing about everything going on there, but not the good in other parts of the country.

I don't control the alert level. Sorry.

What fascinated me about 1776 so far is how close we came to losing. Even some in Congress were eager to remain British citizens - which was a great empire at the time - because it was only certain colonies that really felt the pinch.

Freedom was a radical idea then.

There's a reason those frames are so expensive: they can survive car crashes, you may not, but most of the bike might. Here's a tidbit from the pros: they shave their legs not to go faster, but so the bandages from crashes are easier to change. With some good rash, you have to redress everyday.

And if that doesn't stop him: "Pizza Man."

It's got Costas Mandylor, though, so something nice to look at anyway. Well, except for his over-long hair. That looks stupid.

You know how you see something really painful looking and you get that kind of painful hitch right around the heart? Right, I got that seeing the pics.

Geez. That's something you do VOLUNTARILY? You are a mad man.

Sooner or later every movie seems to become a cult movie. I've watched Citizen Kane way too many times and I have yet to see the table move.

And joe 1of3 you are a man amongst men to not shave your legs. I just cant bring myself to do it even after being around friends doing the bandage change thing.

Indeed.

Fred, you are a genius... is that redundant?

ha!

 
At 7:59 PM, Blogger Yoda said...

OK Fred,
I'm all SEC, but I'll give you that one. Just beat OSU. The media has already declared them national champions.
And BTW, if you decide to hit F4 this weekend can I have two hours notice? Work that out with Sulla and I'll set the alarm.

Hey, if you want to look for root causes, Thomas freakin' Jefferson was the first POTUS to send Marines to deal with the Barbary pirates. ("...to the shores of Tripoli...")

And there was that one where Teddy Roosevelt's big stick pounded home "Perdicaris alive or Rasuli dead." That was 1904.

 
At 8:00 PM, Blogger Eri said...

Evening y'all. Man oh man, I'm havin trouble with blogger tonight. But I see y'all have been busy while I was having downtime with the family. I'll toss my 2 cents in (if Blogger will let me!).

I'm currently reading Cash (Johnny Cash's autobiography) and the bible...Not to mention every Dr. Seuss book under the sun!

"Cult" movie favorites would have to be anything by Kevin Smith and Empire Records.

Finally, I wanted to thank Hawk for introducing us to such an amazing hero. May God bless him.

It's not all just falling over and bleeding! But going 40 miles an hour down a mountain is fun! Oh, and drafting behind cars who don't think you can go as fast as they can is quite satisfying.

I would have thought them isolated incidents when I was a youngster.

But given there are some Islamists still screaming about Crusaders, and suddenly the Song of Roland is a contemporary strategy guide.

Does anyone remember "Eraser Head" or did I make that up in my twisted youth?

When I think of cult movies, I tend to think of "Heathers".

Eraserhead.

Pumpkinhead.

LAZERBLAST, BOY-EE!

I got that one on DVD.

OSU is gonna be good. So who's your favorite SEC team? Looks like Auburn should be tough.

Eraser Head by David Lynch. OOh OOh I think I'll put on Twin Peaks.

It will be Auburn, if they get past LSU in the division, and Florida or Georgia. I'm from Knoxville and too pissed to talk about THAT.
In the big picture, I just hope it isn't Texas. They don't play in a competitive conference...fair disclosure...I went to TCU and they whipped our butts every year. A little envy is good...

 
At 8:09 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

Lion in Winter - crusades. Yup.

By the way, one of the WEIRDEST dang books I've read in a long time was earlier this year, when I picked up Umberto Eco's BAUDOLINO.

You guys are all on the best movie now?

One I like, isn't the best, but always makes me well up is "The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter" with Alan Arkin

 
At 8:12 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

And if you REALLY want to go back, Publius Clodius messed with some Roman-era arab traders, who (Abrahamites even then) got him drunk and circumcised him in his sleep.

Frictions go back a long, long way.

 
At 8:12 PM, Blogger Pixie said...

mmmmmmmm.... two movies that will make me bawl even the one hundredth time I see them, Hawk:

Braveheart and Blackhawk Down.


Good God Almighty.

 
At 8:14 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Did we go to best movie?

Oh, heck. Only the really odd movies stick in my mind.

Ok, I liked The Joy Luck Club. Rarely, I liked it better than the book.

That was me and White Oleanders Brenda....

Bike fixed, problem solved, crisis averted. And peace returns, once again, to "Happy Valley"

 
At 8:15 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

pixie -

Yes, Braveheart. And Rob Roy.

 
At 8:18 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

They're good Pixie.

For quality of acting, sets, costumes and direction, the flashbacks to old New York sequences in the Godfather 2, have no equal.

The whole movie is good, but the period pieces of NY and Sicily are the best.

 
At 8:18 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Oh, my gosh.

Schindler's List. I'm a salty puddle on the floor watching that one.

Band of Brothers. It made me really look at seniors around me, each of whom might be another quiet hero.

 
At 8:18 PM, Blogger Pixie said...

Has anyone ever seen "Like Water For Chocolate"? Both the movie and the book were great - the book is fantastic as it actually has RECIPES for the meals that were catalysts for the chaos.

Being a Zonie (Arizonan) I loves me some Mexican food - traditional is BEST....

Okay, I just went all random and off topic there. Sorry.

 
At 8:18 PM, Blogger Yoda said...

Add "We were Soldiers Once..." to that list

 
At 8:18 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

"Ladder 49" is on.

At 8:20 PM, Blogger Rabbit said...

I tell you what makes me cry:
The poor little Christmas tree on "A Charlie Brown Christmas". It has to do with a real child hood memory of mine.

 
At 8:20 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

Yup BrendaK,

BOB was the finest mini-series ever made.

 
At 8:21 PM, Blogger tesla said...

Random is good pixie. Since being defrisched, hopefully, I'm feeling quite refreshed. Nice place to spend the evening. Good folks, good conversation.

 
At 8:21 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Hose -

No problem, it's all interesting. We were talking cult classic movies - probably about ran out of those. Favorites are good, too.

 
At 8:22 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...

Every Memorial Day, I take out my boxed set of Band of Brothers and watch every episode that weekend. I just never get tired of it.

 
At 8:22 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

"Band of Brothers", the extended versions of "The Lord of the Rings", "Str Wars", "Zulu", all of the "Harry Potter"s, "The Patriot"

 
At 8:23 PM, Blogger Pixie said...

Oh my stars. Schindler's List. Yes, Brenda! I concur - I saw a movie on TMC not too long ago - I believe it was called "The Shop on Main Street" - filmed in the 40's. It moved me as much, if not more so than, Schindler's List. If ever you have the opportunity...

Still waiting to watch "We Were Soldiers Once"... I'm still way too fragile. In waiting.

 
At 8:23 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

hawk -

BOB was a mini-series? I have it on DVD; the production values are so good it's hard to believe it's not cinema.

 
At 8:24 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

It's on one of the "Encore" channels. retty good excet for a few "technical" why are they doing that, or would never happen things

 
At 8:26 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Oh, and "It Happened One Night"

 
At 8:26 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

My favorite is

"The Best Years of Our Lives"

Wifey-Poo hates it because Teresa Wright breaks up Dana Andrew and Viginia (OW-WOOOOOOO) stomp, stomp, stomp Mayos marriage. But it like they never should have married in the first place. I love the characters.

 
At 8:27 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

Yeah Bren, I got the whole series too. It was an HBO Mini-Series.

 
At 8:29 PM, Blogger Rabbit said...

I like The Best Years, too.

 
At 8:30 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

To Kill a Mockingbird with Gregory Peck. Loved the book, loved the movie.

And yes, Gone With The Wind.

 
At 8:30 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

my bad. Roosevelt was "the wind and the lion."

 
At 8:31 PM, Blogger Pixie said...

Wasn't Band of Brothers also an actual Documentary? I may have it confused with something else. My father told me my ... Great Uncle (????) Jim Dunn was mentioned... or quoted, or something.

I should probably put the coffee on because Tesla said it... and there is no where else I'd rather be than here right now.

Good company, Indeed.

Hawk -

I must have seen the HBO logo on it sometime, but I swear I don't remember it and I've watched the whole thing several times. My favorite parts are the real men talking about their experiences. Real heroes rarely seem to know that they are, do they?

 
At 8:34 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

I was given the set for father's day a coule of years ago, but lost the set in the move last year. I have been deserately searching for it while I have been convalescing. I can watch it over and over again. Thank God the History Channel ran them two weeks ago.

 
At 8:35 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

texette -

With that and Band of Brothers, I'm going to get teary here.

 
At 8:35 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

I also love the Brotherhood. It is so much like all of us in the fire service. I know it isn't the same but there are so many parallels it isn't funny.
