OMG! I am soooo f**ked up!


So last night I was drinking beer.  Then I ran out of beer.  So I started putting some Jim Beam in my Diet Pepsi.  Before long I was putting Diet Pepsi in my Jim Beam.

I ran out of alcohol an hour or so ago.

I’m going to bed.  I hope I don’t puke.

    Happy 4th of July

    I know what you’re thinking. “This Klown has some serious substance abuse problems.”

    So what’s your point?

    We are melting in France. The combination of sticky hot summer weather (a heat wave right now; it’s been going on for a week and will probably last another week), no residential air conditioning, and–here’s the deal-breaker–NO WINDOW SCREENS makes this my personal version of hell.

    • piper says:

      I hear you – we’re finally warming up here in downtown Wisconsin.

    • 1539days says:

      Wow. No wonder so many people die during French heat waves.

      • Jadzia says:

        Well, some people have room air conditioners (kind of like the window ones, but they are installed on the ceiling). But yeah, it’s a lot of “let’s go to the mall, let’s ride the bus, let’s go ANYWHERE with air conditioning!” I don’t even have a/c in my (American!) car, it suuuuucks.

        I will say that the housing stock here is MUCH more adaptable to extreme temperatures than most American housing–the walls are super thick and almost every home and apartment has either thick wooden shutters or (newer construction) roll-down exterior shades over every single window. My in-laws’ house is ALWAYS cool even when it’s beastly hot out, and it’s primarily just due to how the house was designed and constructed (they built it themselves).

        This year’s heat wave, in a new-to-us house that has the wooden shutters, is 1000% less miserable than last year’s heat wave, when we were living in a cottage that was renovated by English people who didn’t know to install shutters or roll-downs. But being in a super densely populated, tightly packed downtown neighborhood, we don’t get the kind of cross-breeze that you get if you’re in a more spread-out area.

    • leslie says:

      I’ve been hearing from my daughter who is traveling in Germany and Italy. She is melting…and she is used to heat (lived in Phoenix,AZ for 20 out of the last 23 yrs). But the humidity was so high in Germany. She just texted me that she ahs arrived in Italy just this moment. I hope it is cooler there.
      I think I’d leave if there were no screens. You are a real trooper, Jadzia. Fingers crossed for milder weather for you.

      • Jadzia says:

        Yeah, I make myself miserable because if it’s less than 100 degrees, then insects are more unbearable to me than heat. (I’m tasty.) You can buy screen “curtain” kind of things that aren’t customized and don’t have a frame or anything, and next paycheck that is exactly what I’m gonna do.

        Your daughter must be miserable. Italy is HOT!!!! Unless she’s in the mountains. But if she’s in Napoli or anywhere in the south… Oh. My. God. It’s like the cauldron of hell. (And I’m saying that as somebody who loves Italy.) Where is she?

        • leslie says:

          She is supposed to be biking in the Dolomites. I have no idea (i’ll look in a minute) where that is. but I’m assuming it is cooler on any mountain than in an urban setting. Have you been in those mountains?

        • Mt.Laurel says:

          Bugs always find me as well so the no screens would be the worst. Good luck with getting the curtain variety. Grew up in a 19th century you traded out the storm windows from the winter for the screens in the summer and they were attached on the outside. The windows with stained or even plain beveled glass did not open. All the houses on our block were of the same era. The thick walls help and the houses were built so that the hot air would rise .The second floors were often uncomfortable and the third floors were beastly once you got past June. The big porches also shaded the first floor.

          • Jadzia says:

            OMG that sounds awful. I have the worst of both worlds on the bug thing: I am both tasty AND pretty allergic. WHY COULDN’T I HAVE MARRIED A SWEDE? I would be kicking back in nice cool weather all year long AND I could wear heels as high as I want.

      • Jadzia says:

        And I am taking my little girls to an AIR CONDITIONED tapas joint for dinner. : ) No more running the oven today!

  4. piper says:

    This should frost the tooties of the left

    • leslie says:

      Awesome. I had no idea who Lee Greenwood was until just this moment. I think I’ll play this when my Prog friends come over this evening before the fireworks. (I have no idea what they think the fireworks are celebrating if not ^this^.

    Report from 2009 proves that Trump was right.

    Donald Trump Was Right… Rape Trees Found Along US Southern Border

    • swanspirit says:

      So the special snowflakes of the left are concerned with rape culture, unless Mexican immigrants are doing the raping in the USA or muslims are raping teens in the UK. Then it is ok.

  6. gram krakka says:

    Well at least if you puke your kitties will probably lick up the mess.

    Happy 4th crawdadders.

    the Spirit of 76

    too many have forgotten , or never learned the meaning of the Declaration of Independence

  8. leslie says:

    OK, I’m trying to post something from twitter using yesterday’s suggestion. Hope it takes.


  9. votermom says:

    I spent the morning tweeting the Declaration pf Independence. Finished in 82 tweets.

    What’s cool is that this worked out yo be tweet number 76:

  10. foxyladi14 says:

    Happy Birthday America.
    My home sweet home. ❤

  11. Myiq2xu says:

    The difference between boys and girls: If I was busy doing something and my sons got underfoot I would yell “Get out of the way! I’m busy!” and they would leave. If I tried that with my daughter she would start crying and I would be saying “I’m sorry, honey. I didn’t mean to yell at you. You want a cookie?”

    Cats, on the other hand, don’t care what you say. If they want to be underfoot (and they will) then you just have to deal with it. So what if they walk thru wet paint and leave footprints everywhere?

  12. leslie says:

    I couldn’t pick the one version I thought was the best. But this one pays tribute to the small towns and their 4th of July traditions. I’m on my way to the north side of my little town to watch the annual parade in which the children from the neighborhoods ride home decorated floats and the “lawnmowers’ association” marches with their lawnmowers and garden tools and dustpans along with the drum and bugle corps from other small towns to honor the meaning of this holiday. (and Code Pink and other protestor groups march and get along – for this day at least.)

  13. Dora says:

    Put down that sparkler! You might burn your fingers!

    Is it time to ban all individuals from shooting off fireworks?

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      This is always a fun time of year for me. Montgomery County prohibits everything. I work in Virginia and a vendor sets up a stand for fireworks within walking distance of my office building. Every year the joke is you can carry a gun in Virginia but heaven help you if you cross to the other side of the American Legion Bridge with so much as a sparkler.

      • SHV says:

        I lived in MC for 25 years; before it turned into the People’s Republic of Montgomery County.

      PURE FECKIN’ INSANITY. These people are mentally ill control freaks!!

  14. Myiq2xu says:

    I bought some redwood stain to paint some decorative garden logs/boards but I forgot to get a paint brush. So I was using a small brush until it broke. Then I poured the stain in a bucket and used a broom. It did the job, but my backyard looks like I was murdering possums again.

  15. Mt.Laurel says:

    Opps. That clip landed in the wrong spot. But it did give me an idea for you now . Paint some stripes and stars in blue and white and make it look like the blood red effect was on purpose and you were trying for patriotic. Just watch the pattern you use or you might get a visit from the local PC crowd.

  16. Myiq2xu says:

    For some reason I’m just not in a celebratory mood today.

    It’s stupid hot, and humid too. After I finished painting this morning I was drenched in sweat so I took a shower. I already need another one.

    The Giants lost, and Madbum got slapped around and left the game early.

    I can’t find anything on tv worth watching.

    The Democrats have been relentlessly trashing this country – even more than usual.

    The Gaystapo took all the joy out of the legalization of SSM with their nastiness. They WON, can’t they fucking be nice about it?

    The racial grievance industry is working overtime. Dukes of Hazzard is off the air? Really?

    Today is the 239th anniversary of the day a bunch of slave owners and rebellious rabble committed treason. Whoopee.

    I need some beer.

      Just remember the words of Pajama Boy. He doesn’t need to be right, he just needs to demoralize his opponent enough to stop caring.
      Keep fighting!

  17. 1539days says:

    I’m watching this clip about Republicans trying to ease restrictions on Mooch’s school lunch program. This whole thing is typical of progressives and socialists (who are basically the same).

    Farmers want more money. Big farms hire lobbyists.
    Government invents school lunch program to buy surplus food no one wants to buy.
    Poor kids have to eat crap. Other kids’ parents won’t pay the high prices and brown bag it.
    Government subsidizes lunches so much, schools make a profit from cheap meals.
    Schools start making food kids want, like pizza and chicken nuggets.
    More kids buy school lunch.
    School lobbyists get ketchup classified as a vegetable in order to serve veg-free lunch.
    Schools put in vending machines, create capitalist revenue stream.
    Busy bodies see fat kids, blame fast food and TV.
    Government can’t go against TV and restaurant industry, blames school lunch instead.
    Government eliminates capitalism by banning unhealthy (tasty) food from machines.
    Schools lose money, kids still fat.
    Some beefy First Lady decides fat kids need to move at home. Kids refuse.
    Beefy lady decides school lunches themselves are the problem. Effeminate husband goes along.
    Government tells us food can be nutritious and taste good. Kids disagree.
    Schools lose money due to higher cost of food preparation.
    Schools lose money due to students brown bagging.
    Schools make private lunches illegal.
    Kids bring back capitalism by smuggling in salt and sugar and selling it to make lunch edible.
    Government argues kids need to be retrained on what’s good. Kids still fat.

  19. Somebody says:

    Have any of you heard about the V2V or V2X contraptions that the NTSB and DOT have decided need to be on all new cars starting next year?

    These chips will work on a low radio frequency and transmit the speed and direction of cars in a 360 degree radius around your vehicle. So when you drive by “Joe”, he gets a transmission that you’re going north at 75mph and you get a transmission that “Joe” was heading south at 62mph. Then as you approach “Suzy” also headed north, she gets a transmission that you’re climbing up her ass because she’s only going 45mph in a 70mph zone. You’d pass “Suzy”, but this system will automatically engage your brakes to avoid a rear end collision!! I guess we’ll all learn not to be in a hurry because big brother will making some of our driving decisions.

    Supposedly the system could help stop somewhere between 1,000 and 30,000 traffic deaths per year, depending on which statistics you prefer. Not to worry about the cost though, one of the NTSB guys was quoted as saying the system should be free just like seat belts……SMH.

    TPTB insist this system won’t be used for speeding tickets, etc. Oh sure I believe that, don’t you? How much fun is it going to be driving around with big brother in the car! How handy for tax revenue too, but I’m sure it would never be used in such a manner.

    They’ve been debating this for several years, but decided they needed to move forward with mandating it before Obama left office. So quietly a couple of weeks ago they mandated it.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      When they passed the seatbelt law in California they told people that the cops couldn’t pull you over just for a seatbelt violation. Less than a year later they changed the law to take that part out.

      • blowme0bama says:

        Yup, same in Mississippi: “Oh, noooo…. it will only be a ‘secondary’ violation – you’ll never be pulled over for failure to have a seatbelt on”. Within 2 years at the most, they’re pulling folks over for not having a seatbelt fastened.

    • simofish says:

      My car is 12 years old with 60k miles. Hoping I get another 20 from it.

      So, your article- can you opt out?? I don’t want my driving habits captured. Plus isn’t that distracting?

      • Myiq2xu says:

        Some cars (like Toyotas) will last 200K miles if you take care of them.

        • lyn says:

          Our 1988 Camry has 140,000 miles, and my hubby takes good care of it.

        • cynic says:

          Hubby has a ’95 Toyota Avalon with 230K. We love that car so much that in 08, we bought another used Avalon (’08). I prefer the ’95 design, but they both have such a smooth, quiet ride.

          Daughter has a Camry, SIL has the Tundra, and son has a Scion.

      • 1539days says:

        The automakers can’t opt out and they are the ones who own them. Of course, there will be regulations that say you can’t alter your vehicle to disable it either.

        The problem is that sensors get old and dirty. I have an issue with my traction control system right now on my 10yo 150k mile car. What if someone has a car long enough and the system puts on the brakes at the wrong time?

      • Somebody says:

        Simofish I will go fetch some links in a little bit. I know there was a story on The Hill, USA Today also I believe, as well as several others. DOT also issued a press release.

        To answer your question, no you can’t opt out. Hopefully your car will last a little bit longer and then you might want to consider a 2015 or earlier model.

      The Grateful Dead sold 70,749 tickets to their first of 3 concerts at Soldier Field (Chicago) last night. This was the largest crowd for any event in the history of Soldier Field. There are 2 more nights of concerts to go.

      • Myiq2xu says:

        Dead Heads are special. I’ll bet a lot of them will be at all three concerts.

        • leslie says:

          you are right. they’ve interviewed ppl who said they got tkts for all 3. These are the last 3 Grateful Dead concerts ever…..Dead Heads are going nuts here. They’ve come from all over the country for these concerts.

    watching a panorama of fireworks from my patio. 5 or 6 displays from different places across the lake. awesome. Listening to Yankee Doodle Dandy on my tv. could not ask for a better July 4th.

    • 1539days says:

      I have to walk out to the road. I’m lake adjacent, meaning I can’t see it but it would only take me 10 minutes to get a boat there.

  25. DeniseVB says:

    Odd watching the Macy’s fireworks on NBC listening to patriotic and country music while knowing they crushed a U.S. citizen’s 1A right to speak his un-PC mind. It just wasn’t as enjoyable this year.

    • 1539days says:

      A radio host had an interesting theory. Most of Trump’s agreements with entertainment and retail would need to cut ties with him because they couldn’t let him be in ads or TV shows because of equal time. Instead, they used the PR of dropping him to spin the loss of a business relationship.

      • DeniseVB says:

        That’s what I thought, Fox let him go for that reason, though he’s on it more than he was before as a “candidate”. He’s certainly not bad mouthing them, only the candidates that attack him. Pataki for one, “you were the worst governor ever of NY”, then he shut Rubio up quickly “how’s amnesty working out for that randomly murdered girl in SF for ya?”
