new thread.

Sorry. 8pm on Saturday night on Labor Day weekend, and I'm still working.

If that's not a reason to not hire Dr. Deborah Frisch, I don't know what is.

will the jinx string persist?

At 8:24 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

and my much earlier question (like four threads ago) was, why is sulla working on labor day saturday? (i'm working because i'm a procastinator.)

so? what gives, sir?

At 8:25 PM, Blogger Joe Morris said...


Still at it? Are you going to take Monday off, at least? Have some barbecue?

At 8:25 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Howdy, Sulla. You gonna be able to knock-off soon?

At 8:29 PM, Blogger Cthulhu said...


I work network security.

My little front line in the war on terror.

Or phishing scams. Same diff.

At 8:30 PM, Blogger Cthulhu said...

Back in the pain cave, cthulhu.

At 8:31 PM, Blogger Cthulhu said...

at the moment, looks like I'll be working tomorrow AND Monday. that's what the meeting was about.

I work for a software company.

We try to ship our products late august/early september for the back-to-school season.

At 8:33 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

see, this is what i'm saying.

we computer people. always in front of the freaking computers.

man o man o man.

when is there a break?

that's all i'm askin'

At 8:34 PM, Blogger Cthulhu said...

the break comes between the release...

and the first patch.

At 8:34 PM, Blogger Cthulhu said...

man, I hate wasting sockpuppets.

Pay no attention to the squidboy behind the curtain.

Who is the statue? Roman ceasar?

At 8:37 PM, Blogger tesla said...

Sulla, Hosedragger et al,
You might want to take a look at Michelle Malkin's Hot Air site. There is a glimmer of hope in Australia and France relative to our little terrorist problem. PM Howard seems to be showing a little Churchillian backbone. Go Aussies. And Les Grenouilles seem to have figured out their rioting problem.
Well, well, the light at the end of the tunnel may not have been turned off as a consevation measure after all.
And never ever give up hope. That's what your last breatth is for.
Sulla, sorry to repost this but I did'nt know if u saw it or not

At 8:37 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

i'm not nearly the computer people you guys are.

once, i described myself as the front end person and the other girl on the project as the back end person.

thank GOD no one present at the moment got the double (how does deb say it?) "ententre."

At 8:38 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Sulla -

That sucks.

One presumes that you are stuck cleaning-up someone else's screw-up. (Since if you were in charge, a functional version would have shipped two weeks ago.)

Oh, and I didn't see nothin' unusual.

At 8:41 PM, Blogger Joe Morris said...

Yup, nothin' to see here.

At 8:41 PM, Blogger Cthulhu said...


There is a barbecue at a friend's house in Anaheim on Monday. If I can get in early enough, I should be able to leave with enough time to enjoy some food, folks and fun.

My "niece" (daughter of the woman I dated for several years - parted amicably, and she loves my wife (agape) probably more than she ever did me) - will be there. I haven't seen her for a while, and her birthday is this weekend.

She calls me her uncle; I took her to the last Harry Potter film. Hard to believe the little squirt is turning fifteen, and is tall as a Wookiee.

I've already shown her the large County Cork Whacking Stick I purchased for chasing off any boy who thinks about liking her.

At 8:43 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

tesla -

Read that earlier; it's nice to see.

I can't speak for the U.K. or Oz, but our friends here are going to be in for a very rude awakening once Americans get really annoyed with them.

At 8:43 PM, Blogger Cthulhu said...


thanks for the vote of confidence.

would that it were that simple. We've got some bloody brilliant minds and dedication to burn around here, but Windows frickin Vista has thrown our schedule off a bit.

At 8:44 PM, Blogger Joe Morris said...


Good, something to look forward to and shoot for. I call shenanigans on anyone who works on "Labor" Day. Stinkin' unions. Ha!

At 8:45 PM, Blogger Cthulhu said...


yeah. We've got Dick Cheney's manhood, John Bolton's Mustache, and this guy.

the bad guys don't stand a chance. even if they send pirates.

At 8:55 PM, Blogger Cthulhu said...

Just got the call; I'm off for the night.

Enjoy yourselves; I'll be home with the wives.

At 8:55 PM, Blogger Cthulhu said...

I mean wife.

Her bridesmaids are in town.

At 8:56 PM, Blogger Cthulhu said...

Curse you vile software!

At 9:06 PM, Blogger Ryan said...

PM Howard seems to be showing a little Churchillian backbone. Go Aussies.

Yep. The Aussies have always been more forthright about calling a spade a spade. A couple three months ago, the Aussie Foreign Minister made a public statement to the effect that if Muslims desired to institute and live under sharia law, Australia would most certainly not be obliging them and they should go to some other country.

I wish our leaders were as blunt.

Hey, OregonMuse.

Oops. That last one was me, using my son's account.

That's been happening a lot this evening.

I'm gonna hit it for the evening.

Hello? Helloooooo?

Is reading your web site in order to become a progressive really stocking?

Not if youre heart in sincere

At 10:15 PM, Blogger Retired Fireman said...

You know, there is no greater proof that someone is working for the enemy, than the enemies express thanks for all their help. What do you guys think? How do you think the Liberals will spin this? Pretty much the most damning thing that has been said about them. If our side doesn't latch on to this and use it for everything it is worth, than I have lost all faith in the Conservative movement.

If the Zionist crusader missionaries of hate and counter-Islam consultants like Daniel Pipes, Robert Spencer, Michael Scheuer, Steven Emerson, and yes, even the crusader-in-chief George W. Bush were to abandon their unbelief and repent and enter into the light of Islam and turn their swords against the enemies of God, it would be accepted of them and they would be our brothers in Islam. And we send a special invitation to all of you fighting Bush's crusader pipe dream in Afghanistan, Iraq, and wherever else W. has sent you to die"

"To Americans and the rest of Christendom we say, either repent (your) misguided ways and enter into the light of truth or keep your poison to yourself and suffer the consequences in this world and the next."

Why not surrender to the truth? Escape from the unbelieving army and join the winning side. As for those who have expressed their respect and admiration for Islam, and acknowledged that it is the truth and demonstrated the support and sympathy for the Muslims and their causes like George Galloway, Robert Fisk, and countless others, I say to them, isn't it time you stopped sitting on the fence and came over to the side of truth? ...Abandon unbelief and accept the truth

good one. you've hit the nail on the head

At 10:24 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Beaker, bring me the VBS Detector device.


See, no VBSers here. None at all. If there had been a VBSer here, the alarm would have gone off.

At 10:26 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

That is not a VBSer tearing up the cabinet. The alarm has not gone off, so obviously that cannot be a VBSer.

Probably won't be alot of people here. It has been a busy couple of days.

While chatting just now with Pixie on Google Talk, she came up with a great new term for the Lexicon and we both came up with the definition for it. Submitted for the VBS'ers approval:

Liberfrischy: when you are attempting to be sincere, yet what you say has the potential to come across in a "Glenn Close/Deborah Frisch "I will not be ignored" kind of way

At 11:42 PM, Blogger Paddy O'Furnijur said...

Teach your "niece" how to use a shillelagh and you'll have a lot less to worry about - and the low-lifes a lot more.

Hose or Pixie:

Can you give us an example so I can include it in the lexicon?

At 11:53 PM, Blogger Petrarchan Motif said...

hmm...just us bros here, it seems

At 11:54 PM, Blogger Joe Morris said...

Yup. Ima turn in. I need to ride tomorrow but it's supposed to be 104. So, gotta get up early.

Hej Joe 1 and 2!
Just got back from Sunset and I'm putting the house in order before I hit the sack. Looks like like the gang is wandering off in ones and twos (as is their want) and putting a fine finish on a beautiful day.

I had a fine discussion with Nancy Whiskey and a few of my mates and all is right with the world.

May it be so.

I'm a weaver, a Calton weaver, I'm a rash and a roving blade
I've got silver in my pockets and I follow the roving trade

Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy-O

As I went down through Glasgow City, Nancy Whiskey I chanced to smell
I went in, sat down beside her, seven long years I loved her well

Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy-O

The more I kissed her, the more I loved her, the more I kissed her, the more she smiled
Soon I forgot my mother's teaching, Nancy soon had me beguiled

Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy-O

Now, I rose early in the morning, to slake my thirst, it was my need
I tried to rise but I was not able, Nancy had me by the knees

Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy-O

So I'm going back to the Calton weaving, I'll surely make them shuttles fly
For I'll make more at the Calton weaving than ever I did in the roving way

Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy-O

So come all you weavers, you Calton weavers, come all you weavers, where e'er you be
Beware of Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey, she'll ruin you like she ruined me

Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy Whiskey
Whiskey, Whiskey, Nancy-O

Of all the monies that ere I spent,
I spent them in good company.
And of all the harm that ere I've done, I swear it was to none but me.

And all I've done for want of wit, to memory now I can't recall.
So, raise to me the parting glass...

goodnight, and joy be with you all.

The last time DEB-Bile was arrested was on Aug. 20 (that we know of).

The next DEB-Court date is Sept.25.

Three weeks...Three long weeks....

My question of the day:

Will Dwebbie go three weeks without "defamating" someone to the point of receiving yet another visit from green can man?

Working on a Labor Day?

Not if I don't have to.

In early 2004, I spent 113 days on this ship, and had a whopping 4 hours off in Durban, South Africa.

And I didn't get any other time off thai bucket until we docked in Charleston...AFTER Port Elizabeth,NJ and Norfolk, VA.

God, but that voyage sucked, although I made a whole heapin' shitload of money.

So, Labor Day weekend is here. Cease laboring! There will be time enough to work the fields on the other 51 weekends of the year.

Good morning from the East Siiiide!

Today is for finishing up the extraneous worksite intranet work, tomorrow bar-b-que.

(thunk, thunk) Anyone else home?

Top o' the mornin' to ye!
It looks like another beautiful day has begun. Time to break my fast, then head to church.

Teach your "niece" how to use a shillelagh and you'll have a lot less to worry about - and the low-lifes a lot more.

No way.

This girl is a bruiser, and she likes boys.

She'd use it to hunt the poor unsuspecting critters.
