  5. DandyTiger says:

    It’s fucking cold out. But next week it will be in the 60s. This weather makes no sense.

  6. DeniseVB says:

    LOLz …. is that a recent photo of Obama? There should be no flies in the DC area this time of year, unless they’re breeding them inside the WH ? Euwwwww.

    When I saw this pic I immediately thought of that TV interview where a fly landed right on Obama’s hand (he slapped it & killed it). But go look at Drudge RIGHT NOW! He’s got 4 different pics from 4 different times (including today) where flies have landed on Obama’s face.

    Um — y’all know what the bible says about the guy surrounded by flies, right?

    OT — now *this* is funny:

    I love our “we’re all going to die winter weather forecasters” here in bumf**k coastal Virginia, stay tuned !

    2-4 inches of snow will fall tomorrow, but it might not reach the ground. Are you F****king kidding me ?

    • HELENK says:

      are they as good as Los Angles weather people when it gets cold or rains here??

      • DeniseVB says:

        I lived in Coronado for 3 years, sun forecasts before 3 pm were my highlights then 🙂 That and the other 3 seasons, dry Santa Ana winds, rain and mudslides 😀 Living on the coast, we didn’t have to worry about wildfire, the 5th season 😀

      It’s been in the single digits overnight and in the teens here in the Boston area all week. Last night the lock on my car door froze while I was inside the grocery store, and I had to climb in through the passenger side to get home, We are going to creep back above freezing over the weekend. But I’ve never experienced anything here like one of the winters I lived near Chicago. The entire month of January it didn’t go above zero day or night. When I start to complain about the cold here, I remind myself of that winter and decide it’s absolutely balmy here.

    • foxyladi14 says:

      It blew over here. 😯

      It is sort of funny to think of Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, Egypt, Israel etc having to listen to Kerry drone on and on. I loved the way Hillary went out of her way to encourage women all over the world as she traveled. I didn’t hear any commitment to continue that either asked for by Congress or given by Kerry. And there are going to be plenty of women in Afghanistan who are completely screwed when we leave. It would also seem like the economy would collapse in Afghanistan when we quit spending there.

    OK…so I googled (love that verb) What is the symbolism of flies, a fly? This is what I got…

      My dogs won’t touch a potato or a grain. However, cat litter is a delicacy.

      • myiq2xu says:

        And you let them kiss you?

        • angienc (D) says:

          The bacteria in a dog’s mouth are species specific — i.e., your dog can make another dog sick, but any infection it has is not transmissible to humans (and vice versa). You’re much more likely to get a serious illness from kissing a person than kissing a dog.

      • angienc (D) says:

        Cat litter? You’re lucky — mine likes the cat poop. I told my vet about her disgusting habit & he said “Cat poop is pure protein — so for your dog, it is like filet mignon.”
        FTR — I try to make sure I *immediately* clean the litter box after *each* use (thank God for clumping litter) & I brush my dog’s teeth every night.

        • t says:

          Not true what you said about dog bacteria. Many dog viruses, bacteria and parasites are transmissible to humans and can make humans sick.

          • angienc (D) says:

            Nope. You’re wrong.

            {snip} We asked veterinarian and fellow dog lover Marty Becker . . .

            If you want to give your pooch a kiss, it may be safer than kissing another human.

            Becker says many of the bacteria in the mouth of a dog are species specific, so it won’t harm its owner.

            “So a staph or a strep for a human is not transmissible to a dog, if you were to kiss it, and vice versa,” said Becker.

            Bottom line — you’re more likely to get a serious illness from kissing a person than kissing a dog. But since dogs do transmit some germs, Becker has some advice: “Keep the vaccines current. Good external parasite control, good internal parasite control. You’re going to be good to go.”


            And before you try to bullshit your way out of it — you contradicted me by write MANY dog viruses — that’s bullshit — it is extremely RARE which doesn’t equal MANY as you are trying to say.

    OT So, I just watched the first episode of season 11 of Project Runway (I’ve watched this show since day 1, season 1 when it was on Bravo). Anyway, this episode gave a *perfect* 90 minute encapsulation of everything wrong with Gen-Y that I had to share.
    Anyway, one contestant was 24 year old Emily — the youngest one. She came in right away with an overly-inflated sense of her own abilities (based on, no doubt, nothing but her parent’s careful cultivation of high self-esteem in her via participation trophies, etc. because she hasn’t actually *worked* in the design world yet to have any record of accomplishments to justify it) and flat out said in her talking head/confessional “I think I’m the best designer here, so everyone else should just pack up and go home.” She looked down/talked smack in her talking heads about 3 older designers, one older woman in particular about how they really had “nothing in common” after meeting them all for about 5 minutes. When the rubber hit the road, however, she fell apart — having one day for the challenge, she was quickly producing NOTHING because of an overly complicated design, a scatter shot approach (making a dress & jacket at the same time instead of doing one piece & then moving to the next one) and total lack of time management (mommy wasn’t there to give her structure, apparently). As the work day progressed & others saw her lack of *real* progress, they (specifically the older people who’ve actually *worked* in design) told her point blank — better just concentrate on ONE thing & it *should* be the dress, because you can’t send your model down the runway in just a jacket. Did Emily heed their advice? Of course not — because the jacket was going to be SO COOL! And the material she bought for it was SO GREAT! The morning of the runway show she didn’t even have the jacket half-way done and no dress whatsoever. The older woman — the one Emily particularly looked down on day one — having finished all of her stuff asked Emily if she could do anything to help (she was the only one to do so) & Emily had her make a simple stretch tube skirt so her model would have something to cover her bottom (Emily confessional: “I’ll never judge a book by its cover again”). Ultimately, the “design” Emily — self professed “best designer here” — showed on the runway was the most uncompleted hot mess in Project Runway history and like I said — I’ve seen every episode. Honestly, if she had sent her model down naked it would have been better. The COOL JACKET looked like a rag — one sleeve/shoulder was kind of complete, the other one was not. The tube skirt was a little small & the “top” was nothing but a triangle of material tied on the model in a halter. No buttons, zippers or other closures of *any kind* on any of the garments. Of course, she was eliminated.
    She CRIED in disbelief because it wasn’t fair that she didn’t get to show the judges what she could *really* do.


    • angienc (D) says:

      PS — in the time Emily made *nothing* the older male designer Emily dissed day one made a chic tailored woman’s suit that was so sharp, well-designed & expensive looking, he won the challenge (i.e., he not only advances to the next challenge, he’ll have immunity in it & can’t be eliminated).

    • myiq2xu says:

      The judges were obviously jealous of her.

      She should sue.


      • angienc (D) says:

        She did have one brief flash of insight in her exit confessional — “I learned what I can and what I can’t do.”
        What she thinks she CAN do is a mystery to me, because what she “did” — as I wrote above — was honestly shockingly no where near “complete” — the :jacket” looked more like a scarf with one kind-of sleeve.
        Plus, when she said “what I can’t do” she had a total look of bewilderment — it seemed it was the first time in her life that she realized she *couldn’t* do something.
        It was so pathetic & laughable at the same time that I had to high jack this thread to tell y’all about it.

    • HELENK says:

      I watched the show. you are right she did have an over inflated opinion of herself.
      it is a bitch when reality bites you

      Parents really do their kids a disservice when they don’t give them a chance to fail while they are in school and the stakes are low.

    For the love of God, look at the NY Post cover on Hillary — the misogyny has already started:

    And with that, I bid you all good night.
