Thought for the day, or as long as you like

Lane says:

"Think radically, Vote liberally, and Act conservatively"


Doug concurs.

Lane said it, but Doug thought it up.

Everything was normal today the Prius started right up. the battery didn't go dead whilst submerged in a week of snow.
Nope, it was right up in the green where I left it.
We zoomed off to Renton to send a letter to Germany.
Debated a stop at the Whistlestop but went home instead.
After stopping at the library to pick up a present that the folks there gave to M in appreciation for her volunteer work.
But they didn't throw her out...go figure.
And checked out a pair of DVDs.
Fooled around with the DUKE for awhile then brought home some Kernal Kentucky's Sandy Fried Chicken.
Watched "Tristam Shandy".
With music by Nino Rota?
From "8-1/2"?
Weird.

So remember what Lane says.

"Avoid thinking, Vote for the pretty face, and Act like the world owed you a living"

Remember when we were kids and we called KFC, Colonel Cathcart's Kentucky Fried Buzzard? Still gives me a chuckle. I also remember consuming some chicken at the KFC in West Seattle, and becoming ill immediately, and throwing up in the parking lot. Buzzard is a touchy meat. One must cook it thoroughly.

I wonder if the hybrid cars do well in the real winter, in sub-zero temps? Those batteries must be effected. Isn't it a joy to get back to the wet damp wonderworld of the Pacific Northwest? I hear people by the gaggle complaining loudly that the last two weeks have been a nightmare, and they have had it up the ass with winter snows, and pray that is it for the season. I suspect that it is not, that there will be more white wonder in store for us all.

What kind of a present did M get, a book? What DVD's did you check out? Movies, documentaries, gardening tips, porn? You haven't talked much about old Duke for a time. I thought maybe you and he had run your course. In Tacoma, the KFC's have spicy chicken on many of their menus, which I do like; probably cuz we have more ethnic types down here.

Kudos to Lane for his 2009 advices:
"Think radically," yeah, is there any other way to cognitate?
"Vote liberally," I guess most people feel like they do that, whether it is for the Democrats or the Independents. Do the Republicans ever feel like they embrace any liberal policies? Can a duck do a somersault?
"Act conservatively," well, hell, that one is pure Savant. Most of us Type A personalities could not be bothered with such nonsense.
"Avoid thinking," about what?
"Vote for the pretty face," well, Barrack has nice eyes. Sarah Palin was hot to look at, but I could not bring myself to vote for her.
JFK was certainly prettier than Nixon, but then Gore was prettier than GWB Jr. too. So go figger.
"Act like the world owed you a living," gosh, doesn't it? What is the alternative?

Butch will now give advice for the terrific year of 2009 now upon us:
"Act outrageously, Look for levity in all things, but especially on Blogsites, Think with both heads you bad boys."

Melva and I will attend our annual New Year's Eve pinocle party with friends, non-alcoholic, but still rowdy. I have to take my medical treatments today and tomorrow, early due to the holiday. And that is a bitch, enit?

Yes, Miss E, your point is well taken. For 2009 I will try to be kinder to you, and to Doug's minions. I will subscribe to several lesbian magazines. I will re-read all of your insipid shallow silly poetry, and fling more mud on your white dress and dried up womanhood. I will be so sweet to you, you will howl with displeasure. I promise.

Trying to imagine your driveway these days. Let's see, the new Prius would park first, at the head, right? Followed by the old Volvo station wagon, that still sort of runs? Don't you still have the VW green bus with the Ferrari painted on the side? You never mention it much. Isn't the amphibian still there too? So the driveway is not empty after all, even after selling the Fiat 500, the Bristol, the Alpha?

Perhaps a pic of your driveway would be in order.

Perhaps the FFTL format could change up a tiny bit, as Glenn has suggested numerous times. It would be grand to see a serialized page or two of one of your many plays, kind of a running addition to things; the playwrights corner.

Actually since we are so close to the New Year, I can spill the beans. Doug has been working on a stand up comedy routine, retelling all my old jokes. If it goes over, since today's audience will not remember any of them, he may write some of his own, or buy some from Seinfeld.

Actually, Eddy, you need to listen to the mp3's on Jannie's blog site. I NEED A MAN is a terrific musical concept. Jannie can really belt out a tune, and her tones are fresh and original. Doug and I are competing over on her site to get an autographed CD of I NEED A MAN. We will, of course, buy your album CD when it emerges. I can see the promo, "Back from the grave, Eddy Emerald sounds better than ever!"
Talk about a come back. You go, guy!

I'm using "liberally" in it's more original meaning, i.e. "a lot"
And I'm using "conservative" to mean
"don't fool around with anything that works"
"Liberal" and "Conservative" are meaningless and divisive terms and I'm sick of them.
If everybody would just listen to me and sendmesomemoney, things would once again approach hunky-doryness.
