The wheel in the cage goes:

G'mornin', boss!

The gerbils in the wheel say, "Don't hire Deb, Don't hire Deb, Don't hire Deb..."

Um, could you have Maintenance look at the wheel? It's not very squeaky this morning.

[Scampers off to the coffee bottle attached to the side of the cage]

At 6:20 AM, Blogger Sinner said...

That's a good one, I was thinking maybe "Squeak, Squeak, Squeak"

At 6:22 AM, Blogger Sinner said...


Forgot to change into something more comfortable...

At 6:32 AM, Blogger Southern Fried Yankee said...

G'mornin all!

That wheel's not very squeaky is it? Maybe if we all get on and start running...nah.

[get's on line for the coffee bottle] Geeze Fatwa...are you gonna share?

At 6:35 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Good morning, East Siiide!

Having searched for a new Good Morning song and pretty much come up empty, here's a bit coming to you not-live from WHAM!

You wake up in the morning with the bass line
A ray of sunshine
You know today you're gonna have a good time
And you're ready to go

I should be commenting out the wazoo today since I'm at the client's office with pretty much nothing at all to do.

At 6:37 AM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Yankee -

It's all yours; I've had quite enough to...uh oh.

[Scurries frantically to darkest corner of cage]

At 6:37 AM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Yo, BrendaK...East Siiiiiide in tha hizzle!

Thanks for the coffee Fatwa and for the song Brenda.

I'll be in and out today.

The Turd Warrior seems to have put all the postings back up on her site.

Maybe she realized that deleting everything off the main page didn't really make it inaccessible.

Hi everyone.

I saw the second half of that ABC movie last night. It just pissed me off more.

It was kind of good for me to come back and read everything this morning.

I was going through a bad time before 911 in a relationship and had moved out on the 7th. Then 911 came. And let's just say, my company went bankrupt as a result, and I made a choice to not go back, even though I was facing unemployment and hard times to honor those who died way too early and unfairly. There is no way I'm going to waste my life on mediocrity. They don't have that opportunity, so I'm going to appreciate and honor their lives, and make the most of things, not take anything for granted. And sometimes, those are real tough decisions. But at least I have them to make. It is this that keeps my passion alive and the fervent hope that this kind of hatred and evil gets destroyed.

At 6:47 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Such a day! I love, love, love the fall.

Fatwa - is it already getting cold there in O-hi-o? And by cold I mean, of course, anything below 68┬░ -- because after lo these many years I have become a weather weenie.

At 6:50 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

staci -

The second half of that show was almost unbearable. I had family over and we cried through the last 20 minutes.

It made me so sad for all that was lost and so appreciative of this lovely new day we have to live.

At 6:51 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Hi Staci and Infidel!

I didn't watch that movie...I knew it would just make me angry.

At 7:01 AM, Blogger Southern Fried Yankee said...

I have been watching those one's they've been running on the History channels...with interviews and tapes and such. Quite hard to watch, but harder not to.

Good gerbil wheel music. I love this song

Have a great day, everyone!

At 7:04 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Good morning, Victoria!

At 7:09 AM, Blogger Staci said...

All it did was add an drama aspect of what I already read.

I thought it was interesting that even taking Clinton out, it didn't take away what happened. And it was a bunch of crap. Even down to those that had come into contact with the terrorists from 911.

Yesterday, on the way through downtown Miami, there was an area blocked off with bomb squad car and a LOT of law. At least once a month down here, there is always something. I work in the port, and you always wonder driving in having to go through all these CBP and police/FBI checkpoints what is going on. I asked my bro in the USCG, he said if the public knew how much stuff we stop, we wouldn't want to go out. To top in off, they blend very well in this city being so diverse. And people honestly assessed us currently in the C grade range.

I think we are doing a bang up job. And whenever, I'm inconvienenced by this, even in the airport, I'm grateful and I'm reminded why.

At 7:09 AM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

I should be commenting out the wazoo...

BrendaK - might be better if you use your keyboard.


It's rainy here this morning and headed for 70┬░. Usually doesn't start getting autumn-y temperature-wise until early-to-mid October (when the leaves really start changing).

Infidel753 - I noticed that too when I snuck over there earlier. Only 13 more days until the hearing...

Staci - I didn't watch any of the TV programs about 9/11; I figured the "dramatic license" would just tick me off.

Personally, I find the actual footage (especially some of the amateur stuff) more visceral and meaningful in terms of bearing witness.

At 7:12 AM, Blogger Hawksp said...


It's all back up at SWP.

Nothing new added though.

Morning East Coasters.

At 7:14 AM, Blogger Hawksp said...

I thought the Presidents speech was very, very well done.

I'm sure the former President wasn't too pleased with any of it.

At 7:15 AM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Hiya, Hawk!

At 7:20 AM, Blogger Hawksp said...

Hey fatwa,


I thought the mini-series was very well done. The grades at the end were a little much. What's the scale besides, we haven't had another attack since and they're still working to make it better.

At 7:24 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

In retrospect we could have done a lot more to prevent the attacks. But considering all the red tape and lack of the interagency cooperation, we didn't.

Even if we knew who the attackers were going to be, our political correctness would not permit to arrest them. That would be "racial profiling" (god forbid).

We can go on and on about all the 'coulda-woulda-shouldas', because of course hindsight is 20/20.

Consider the following: even today, after removing Saddam from power and preventing god knows how many more attacks, the government still gets blamed.

Damned if you do, and damned if you don't.

At 7:24 AM, Blogger Ducky said...

(stumbling out of sawdust)

G'morning everybody!

Hawk, it's not entirely back up the way that it had been. I note that some photographs have been deleted (UO professors).

I did take a look at SWP last night - nothing was there except the lefthand navigation and links.

I also noticed (haven't been there is quite some time) that she has posted a Creative Commons "license" for her site at the bottom of left navigation.


Anybody know at what point in the game that popped up?

Must go back to work. Must work the seven steps. Or twelve steps. Or however many steps in the Deb Recovery Program.

VBS 4ever,


At 7:30 AM, Blogger Hawksp said...

I gotta go too Ducky. I'm just working on some SOP stuff at the house before I go in.

Get to fly today and tonight! (happy little gerbil racing in circle chasing tail)

At 7:31 AM, Blogger Rabbit said...

The only new thing I noticed was in the comments, a couple at the bottom on Finger Trail.

Yes, Staci, if the public only knew....

I don't work at the airport anymore, but yesterday I'm sure y'all saw that a plane was diverted to DFW due to unclaimed Blackberry.

They are testing, testing, testing our responses to seemingly "trivial" incidents.

Now back to teh crazzee!

At 7:35 AM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Hawk -

I'm working on a little "official" project and was wondering of there's a pop tune which I might know (or could dig-up) that you associate with flying.

No rush, as I'm not going to be able to start work on it for a couple o' days. You can either post it here or shoot me an email (if you don't mind).

At 7:36 AM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

At 7:43 AM, Blogger Rabbit said...

What kind of flying?

Substance Abuse?
Swinging on a swing?

At 7:49 AM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Rabbit -

In Hawk's case, that would be a chopper. I'd like to get a tune that's personally meaningful to him.

I shall say no more, as that would spoil the fun.

At 7:59 AM, Blogger Staci said...

Fatwa, it wasn't bad. The drama was how the actors were portraying the character (ie. sniping and mocking tones and facials), but it wasn't bad.

For all the whining Clinton did, I found Dereliction of Duty very damning.

Well, back to budgeting. Yeah, due tomorrow. Yesterday was a 17 hour day. Try to drop in later.

At 8:00 AM, Blogger Southern Fried Yankee said...

Here's one Fatwa, it's one of my favorites...

Fly Away by Lenny Kravitz

At 8:10 AM, Blogger svenlanka said...

Good morning folks,

Deb is frothing over on AW-enough so that I should resub. She just posted one ebtitled Being Jodie Foster where I guess-its kind of hard to tell-she takes DHD to task.

At 8:12 AM, Blogger kentuckyjoe said...

So what's up with SouthWest Paw? How come no posting? And, unfortunately, I can't keep up with other threads either. What's up with the guy named "Beau?" I understand he was a faux southerner. Everyone knows you all is spelled and pronounced y'all.

At 8:13 AM, Blogger svenlanka said...

She lays out her version of the PW affair, dumps personal info on sinner, dont know if its accurate or not, uses her superior intellect to identify hosedragger as Matthew Heidt, and then pegs an AW poster as a porn addict.

At 8:14 AM, Blogger Hawksp said...

"I'm working on a little "official" project and was wondering of there's a pop tune which I might know (or could dig-up) that you associate with flying."

Snikies Fatwa,

Which one isn't. The guys and gals I've flown with overseas all try to made a flying video of their missions sooner or later. They use everything from classic rock, to acid rock....you name it.

I was in Qatar for about a half year and one of the other pilots did one with pictures and video we all took to 3 Doors Downs, Krytonite that I thought was pretty good. It has a line about the "sands of time" and all.

What kind of flying is it?

At 8:15 AM, Blogger Southern Fried Yankee said...

Sorry, that's just the lyrics...
here's a link to the video with the music on YouTube...

Hawk -

If there's a tune that tends to go through your mind while you're herding one of those beasties through the skies, that's the one I want.

(If you'd like to know why, send me an email and I'll explain my reason for asking; don't want to spill the beans to the rest of the gerbils before it's done. Nor do I wish to intrude on your "comfort zone". It's all in pursuit of more silly VBS fun.)

At 8:30 AM, Blogger svenlanka said...

Im not sure of the purpose of her post, end result seems to be another threat aimed at someone called John Henry-running to her lawyer for another restraining order-I dont get it. Im confused. Why post this stuff on AW-to what end? If only I had graduated college......

I truly appreciate all of your music suggestions, but I have a particular reason for asking Hawk to suggest something specific.

(Iffen he doesn't mind, of course.)

At 8:53 AM, Blogger Rabbit said...

Kentucky Joe,
John Henry is a VBSer who challenged Deb on numerous occasions, like Hosedragger does. He did alot of digging into her realife. He mailed his phone number & real address & asked her to call. She never did. She hates him most of all of us.

At 9:00 AM, Blogger Rabbit said...

The best way to catch up on teh threats, crayzee Deb stuff is to go through the archives here at DHD.

Deb made a threat to a blogger named Froggy at the Blackfive website. There are 2 Matthews there. She got it in her head that Froggy is Matthew H.

And we know how she gets,
when she gets an idea...

At 9:01 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

rabbit -

Can you imagine the frothing at the mouth when she discovers that John Henry did nothing illegal and she has no case?


Oh, the unfairness of it all! [/sarcasm]

At 9:04 AM, Blogger Rabbit said...

That would be frothing "with LOTS and LOTS of saliva".

At 9:05 AM, Blogger svenlanka said...

Apparently quite an output from her smartness on AW this morning but I have to go. Plus Im getting scared reading her stuff, she's just so, I dont know, brilliant! With her looks, her compassion and understanding, and her smarts-not to mention her modesty-she might just be perfect.

I am in AWE.

The Creative Commons link has been on her site for quite a while. It gives us the right to distribute her work with attribution. We can also alter her work, as long as the altered work is published with the same license as the original work.

BTW, she took one of my posts to Blizzard on DHD and copied it to the comments section on the Finger Trail post, posting it under my name. Yep, there's that academic integrity again. I wonder if that's how she "wrote" her dissertation (drawing heavily on the works of Ibid, Op Cit, and Et Al)?

I'm half-thinking that her

Specifically, it contains

a TRO against John H. Teh

Hello Fatwa. I am in the Capitol City, Frankfort. Bidness takes me down Owensboro (thus Henderson) way several times a year. Lovely country, although the only people I know are related to my bidness. Last fall that entire area was raked by hit and miss tornadoes, some very nasty. I saw some of the damage the last time I was there.

Since this is only my 6th or 7th post (I did post once or twice when y'all started), am I in Guinea Pig status, or have I gradutated to gerbil yet?

At 9:52 AM, Blogger kentuckyjoe said...

Well given I've taught VBS and SS for nigh on 10 years, I hope that qualifies me as either/both.

Although I suspect you meant that more in the Richard Gere vein.

At 9:53 AM, Blogger Bilgeman said...

One of my "This is no Bullshit" sea stories...

This is no bullshit:

When i went to Diego in 2001/2002, the bomber pilots would come into the Seaman's Club there since it was the ONE club where you could smoke a Winston while having a brewski,(all the other clubs on the island are Navy-run, and are thus reserved for "oxygen-nazis"...I guess they don't want to damage their lungs while they are poisoning their livers.).

Also, the Seaman's Club sells beer "to go".

Now, I don't want to cast any aspersions on anyone, but it IS a long flight to Afghanistan, and Diego IS 300 miles south of the Equator, and flight suits aren't exactly known to "breathe"(Nomex flame retardant fabric and all that).

But I'd occassionally buy the BUFF and B-1 crews a six pack of beverages in recycable glass bottles, with the express hope that they would dispose of the empties in a proper and eco-friendly manner.

I have, ever since, wondered if there wasn't some dour Taliban asswipe who had his nugget broken wide open from an empty Heineken bottle jettisoned through a bomb bay at 35,000 feet.

God does love His little jokes, as do I, and it would seem a particularly fitting end for one of those particular fellows.

Kinda like if Osama developed rectal gonorrhea..

Outstanding work on the new blog!

Fatwa, can't wait to hear your new DHD project! Thank you in advance!

Team VBSer Gerbils,

Hat tips all around!

Regarding "Card 53" as teh Deb proclaimed herself during yesterday's AW blatherings . . . she's so very consistent on the point that rules simply don't apply to her.

Hundreds of years of convention that decks of playing cards contain 52 cards plus Jokers but Noooooo, our Deb thinks and thinks for weeks and hits on the *brilliant* notion that she is "Card 53".

Uh huh.

She is the only person on the planet who gets to break every known rule of civility in the name of being "Card 53?"

This is somehow to be taken as evidence that she doesn't *mean* anything she says so therefore no harm done?

Helloooooooo Deb: this is the classic rationalization used by all abusers.

Oh and by the way, in the rules according to Deb, Freedom of Speech means a heavy hand on the delete key and never having to mean it when you say you're sorry?

Simply psychotic. Deb, too bad you didn't think to "trademark" Card 53. In all seriousness, Card 53 brings to mind my Dad's favorite slam about anything/one who is utterly useless which was "useless as tits on a boar hog."

Hawk, please email me so I can respond to your questions of a couple days ago. Maybe I am impaired but when I click on your name in the comments, I get thrown to your profile and I'm not seeing your email address.

BrendaK-perhaps you could create another tune from Ozzie Ozbourne's "Crazee" song. If you think about it, it fits all the way around: Teh Crazee, the train sounds in the background headed to a crash, and insanity woven throughout.

Sorry-make that "Crazy Train," such as:
Crazy, but thats how it goes
Millions of people living as foes
Maybe its not to late
To learn how to love
And forget how to hate

Mental wounds not healing
Lifes a bitter shame
Im going off the rails on a crazy train

Ive listened to preachers
Ive listened to fools
Ive watched all the dropouts
Who make their own rules
One person conditioned to rule and control
The media sells it and you have the role

Mental wounds still screaming
Driving me insane
Im going off the rails on a crazy train

I know that things are going wrong for me
You gotta listen to my words

Heirs of a cold war
Thats what weve become
Inheriting troubles Im mentally numb
Crazy, I just cannot bear
Im living with something that just isnt fair

Mental wounds not healing
Who and whats to blame
Im going off the rails on a crazy train

I find it supremely ironic that through the use of the Creative Commons license, she explicitly allows her words to be posted, reposted, and composted from here to eternity; then screams bloody murder when someone does - and demands ex post facto editing and deletion rights. If she really was even half as smart as she thinks she is (in her own humble opinion - because we know she is humble - Cecille would probably even say she is humble) she would know that there are multiple Creative Commons licenses that impose various degrees of restriction on published works. If she were twice as smart as she actually is, she would know that her words can be excerpted with attribution under the Fair Use doctrine of Copyright, no matter what restrictions she tries to place on them.

The humble Dr. Snack Cake may be the joker in the deck, but she's missing enough other cards that she's still nowhere near a full deck.

I bet if Cecille could see her former lover now [ewwww!! iiickk! bad visual! bad visual!] she'd be soaking in a big tub of Clorox and calling the local HazMat team to decon the house.

But then, I don't know Cecille, and our humble Deb does - or did...

until she got kicked out...

that's gotta hurt...

Just sayin'...

If you are in "Blogger beta" you can't post on non-beta blogs.

Just commented at your new site.

By the way, what a great idea to observe and record the behavior of the specimen daily from the confines of its new cave! Just like Dian Fossey!

First your conjecture and now this. You are truly the scientific pioneer of this community.

as a solution to the blogger beta thing, I think you can still create "non-beta" original blogger accounts and post with those.

I have one of each.

"I don't know much about Sulla."

Deb's reading comprehension really, really sucks. She doesn't know much about anything that isn't spoonfed to her.

Perhaps I should wear a nametag.


I think most of it doesn't resonate with her because the details appeared in comments that didn't mention her, so she felt non need to pay attention.

So..if we want to keep anything secret from her, just speak freely, but don't mention Deb. It'll be like the windtalkers in WWII.
