Or “muchas gracias,” if you prefer
Thank you all for your wonderful words in response to my posts about The Old Man. I appreciate your kindness friends. ~Y~ even volunteered Early to talk gay to me and do Nacho poses. Such wonderful friends :-)

As for the Old Man: he’s still in dire straits, and not expected to last much longer than Monday the 12th.

We now return to our originally scheduled programming.

You’ve heard the commentary regarding Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama changing their vocal intonations while speaking recently in Selma, Alabama right? While I do agree that Mr. Obama did change his accent quite markedly (very disappointing to me), I think the contention that Ms. Clinton put on a Southern accent is absolutely, positively laughable.

Conservative talk show host Sean Hannity has been beating the “Southern Drawl Hillary” drum to fucking death this week (I listen to conservative talk radio occasionally on the way home from work). He rattles on and on about her Southernspeak, and how awful it is that she did it. Maybe he means a Southern California accent because it’s about as far from a Southern accent as I’ve ever heard. I sent Hannity an email telling him as much.

Listen for yourself, bumpkins:

Ever heard of a character named Johnny Smoke? Johnny smoke was a character in an anti-smoking commercial from back in the 60s. No one at work remembers the poor little fucker. Information on the internet is pretty scarce. I did find this site that referred to good ol’ J.S. The graphics on the page aren’t the real ones, by the way.

A study conducted by UCLA's Department of Psychiatry has revealed that the kind of face a woman finds attractive on a man can differ depending on where she is in her menstrual cycle.

For example: If she is ovulating, she is attracted to men with rugged and masculine features. However, if she is menstruating, or menopausal, she tends to be more attracted to a man with a spear lodged in his chest and tape over his mouth while he is on fire.

No further studies are expected.

I believe they tried doing a study on women going through "The Change", but none of the researchers lived to tell about it.

What are Nacho poses? All I can think of is Nacho Libre, which I likey. ;)

So sorry about the Old Man, Carlos. I know it's been said over and over, but it still sucks.

You got it! Anything to make our friend smile.

I don't know if you'll ever see this comment (being over two years after the fact), but this made me LOL, which right now, with the pneumonia thing, makes me sound like that weird cartoon dog from back in the day. What was his name? Muttly, I think. Good one, C.

Rimpy: Thanks for reading. Shit. I didn't think anyone read this spew any more! There were two dogs who made that wheezy laugh: Muttly and Precious Pup. I do a pretty fair imitation of both. ;-) Hope you feel better soon.
