We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
It's good to see that neither Viscounts nor gauntlets are entirely obsolete.
On the radio last night, Drudge read the list of questions that he would like to pose to Al. One question that I would like to ask him would be this: If we are simply in a natural cyclical variation, as has happened forever, would it make any difference to him?
Well, I swear, too. Sorry if I misread tone. Really I am. You've been genuinely nice, too. But if chatting with me is really like that, then never mind. Saw the movie and am not sure I can still move like she does :(
But thanks for the heads up- I had better get out of Greek and into Texas-speak real soon before moving, right?
ouch--no, anon, I'd love to visit the Oracle--that was meant as a high compliment. No jibe intended. Occurs that maybe sometime this medium misleads. I meant to be jolly, not crabby. That old elbow in the ribs is usually funnier to the elbower than the elbowee--i realize--
Yesterday was a really bad day on my end and I was tired last night. The perceiving antennae were hopelessly bent when I quickly read #10. Am afraid my explanation is just going to make things worse, but truth is, in the mil and construction circles I’ve run in (for too long, it seems), it’s not often one overhears a straight guy- which you very clearly are- say “how sweet” without being a little sarcastic, unless he’s playing with puppy dogs or cooing at babies. That’s all it was, and I didn’t even think it a big deal if you were having a little fun… Now, I realize you were just being a secure real man and sincerely humoring guy when you said that.
Anyway, therefore, in conclusion, and just to be absolutely clear, I did divine from the gods that you are a fair person who must know I didn’t intend to be assuming or cryptic. You unloaded a bit, and I clearly learned some things, so no hard feelings, yes? Here’s hoping you get to meet real seers from time to time who will help you figger out da futcha markets and football seasons. As for me, I’m going to work on my chatting skills off the screen. Today it’s to be a captive audience of one bromeliad, two cats, three carpenters and four phone calls to the accountant. All the best!
Well, you ARE sweet, anon. I guess that's Louisiana--whenever someone brings food, it's the stock exclamation. Guess it did sound kinda sarcastic, duh. Wasn't, tho. I'd never insult my fellow limerick-lover--
