I used to wear a friendship bracelet given to me by a particularly tart-y girl I knew in 1988. I'd like to see her again. The smell of hairspray can still make me nostalgic for her at times. Also green apples.

    I hate writing staff reports. That's a lie I love it. If I didn't I wouldn't do it. Why is my Coke gone? I'm taking another pain-killer and calling my brother for a ride. Dammit he's in Cincinatti. Who can give me a ride? I'll call that tart I knew but I bet she's married now and won't give me a ride.
    Not surprisingly, this morning required a serious re-write of the staff report on phase 5 of that subdivision. There was a lot of information under the heading "drainage and grading" about Zoning Goddess that didn't belong there and some stuff about friendship. As we all know, friendship has no place in subdivision.

    I'm out for the weekend. Miss you love you.

    The same reason care about LeBron James. It is an interesting story and fun to watch most the time (although for the record I hate LeBron James).

    I'm excited! Today I picked up a new Bacon Wave at a Bealls Outlet.

    https://www.asseenontv.com/bacon-wav...l.php?p=296229

    I had one years ago and liked it a lot.

    Online it's $14.95, but I got mine for $5.99! Did I do good or what? (It doesn't take much to get me excited anymore...)

    What? Only one? Call now and get not one, not two, but three for just $5.99. (Separate shipping and handling charges apply to each item shipped.)

    The inventor of bacon is unknown. The debt of gratitude owed him (or her) is immeasurable. Bacon is the happiest smell in the world. It is one, if not, the most welcome flavor.

    I have met people who say they do not like bacon. I look upon them with pity. My wife likes bacon but does not eat it. I envy her resolve as son and I cook and eat it every Saturday and Sunday.

    Turkey bacon ? Oh please.

    Ever had pork belly? Basically just a giant steak of fatty bacon. A little overwhelming actually.

    I have had some decent success with turkey bacon by rubbing it with chiptole or some other smoked pepper rub and then frying it in oil. But then of course, frying it in oil makes it not any healthier and it still doesn't taste anywhere close to the real stuff.

    Titty bar update

    I approved the tenant improvements plans for our next titty bar this morning. The floor plan is amazing. Two raised stage "venues", two stripper poles, two bars, two private lap dance areas, dressing room for the interpretive dance performers complete with lockers, DJ booth, offices, security room. They claim it will operate as a bikini/lingerie bar. But I'm not that stupid.

    Just two conditions to my approval: 1) planning must inspect the facility prior to builder services issuing a certificate of occupancy, and 2) performers shall not expose their naughty bits to the customers. I think that's reasonable.

    I can't wait until this hits the media....

    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    I had it once. Once. I couldn't handle how delicious it was. I'm afraid that if I ever have it again there will never be any turning back.

    Thanks for looking out for my bunny back, but don't worry I saw that video the other day and fainted from the cuteness!

    My iPod nano died. I ask the Throbbing Brian: Can I purchase a replacement iPod nano and download all my music stored on my 'puter from the iTunes store? I'm going to Target tomorrow and buy a replacement. I miss my iPod....

    Yes you can. I am sure ZG does not miss your iPod, or rather the karaoke that goes hand in hand with your iPod

    Too Much Sun

    This Bear is not supposed to get too much sun. Today, too much sun.....working in the yard, yadda. Tomorrow, staying inside in the air conditioning. (I did get some outside stuff taken care of that I had been ignoring.)

    Oh hell, he never listens to me. I could tell him 'til the cows come home, how people upgrade/lose ipods/iphones, and yes, the music is there. I told him he would look dumber than dirt if he posed this question on Cyb.

    And no, I don't miss it. The man can't sing.
