Tough day today for a lot of folks, I sense some worried looks out there in pretend internet friend world. I’m not here to tell you it’s going to be alright, I haven’t a clue.

I am here to provide the musical equivalent of a cold washcloth across the forehead. So sit back and relax people. See if you can talk the significant other into a foot-rub, or something better even. Eat some cake if you’ve got it (I’m fresh out).

Post your own soothing suggestions in the comments.

Update:  As usual, our favorite Inked Smart Chick does her level best to class-up the joint with one soother:

 Beethoven “Moonlight Sonata”

and one invigorating favorite:

Mozart ” Eine kleine Nachtmusik” Allegro

 Needs more cowbell.  (Thanks, TI!)

Brewfan manages a shot at our woodwind-sucking host with this selection:

Mozart’s clarinet concerto

Careful…after watching that dude for a while, I think I might just have lost my heterosexuality.

3. Pupster - September 29, 2008

Thanks TI and Brewfan, I’ve updated.

I can’t belive there are flamewars in the comments of that clarinet video. Sad.

Hey clarinetists have strong lip muscles. That’s very important for certain things 😉

6. TattooedIntellectual - September 29, 2008

Okay, this one’s soothing, but perhaps not uplifting.

13. BrewFan - September 29, 2008

That video was…interesting, TI. 🙂

14. TattooedIntellectual - September 29, 2008

That video displays how much free time some people have.

15. MCPO Airdale - September 29, 2008

How could you not have this one?

16. BrewFan - September 29, 2008

Do you remember when we used to sing

17. TattooedIntellectual - September 29, 2008

Dude, I have no idea how I missed that one. I was thrown off by Brew posting uber-freako earlier.

18. MCPO Airdale - September 29, 2008

These eyes have seen a lot of love

19. TattooedIntellectual - September 29, 2008

Do you remember when we used to sing

No, but I have heard the song 😉

20. BrewFan - September 29, 2008

I hope I’m not being too forward, TI 🙂

21. TattooedIntellectual - September 29, 2008

Hahahaha

22. BrewFan - September 29, 2008

It sounds like he caught one in the ‘nads but its still a nice song

23. MCPO Airdale - September 29, 2008

This is just too good to be true

24. TattooedIntellectual - September 29, 2008

Something a bit more recent

Dang, brewfan, that’s gotta hurt to sing like that.

25. TattooedIntellectual - September 29, 2008

MCPO

I LOVE that song!

26. BrewFan - September 29, 2008

Can I bum a smoke?

27. MCPO Airdale - September 29, 2008

31. BrewFan - September 29, 2008

Time for shut eye!

Sleep tight TI, don’t let the bedbugs bite Chief!

32. TattooedIntellectual - September 29, 2008

And brew takes us back to the beginning. Sleep well.

33. Mrs. Peel - September 29, 2008

I have a hummingbird in my back yard. In fact, I have a lot of wildlife around here. Not including coyotes, I hope. I’m not sure Pepper could hold her own against a pack of coyotes, and we’re not allowed to shoot them because they’re “protected” or some bullshit.

Personally, I think we should get to hunt coyotes from helicopters.

34. TattooedIntellectual - September 29, 2008

Coyotes protected? Where the heck are you at Mrs Peel? I know it’s somewhere south b/c of Ike.

35. MCPO Airdale - September 29, 2008

coyotes protected? When Dad was stationed at Ft. Hood, we got a dollar apiece for the skins!

36. MCPO Airdale - September 29, 2008

Tattoo – It’s got Halle Barry in it!!!!!

37. Mrs. Peel - September 29, 2008

I’m actually not 100% sure that’s true, but that’s what my parents said when I said that if any coyotes came near the dog, I would simply shoot them. They assured me that I would get in trouble.

One of these days, I’m going to remember that my parents repeat everything someone tells them without checking it out for themselves. (Yes, I repeat everything they tell me, but they’re my PARENTS, you know?) (And no, they don’t repeat things I tell them. I’ve explained to them many times that Obama choosing a black liberation theology church as an adult and staying there for 20 years is far more worrisome than any Muslim education he received for a few years as a child, but they just keep insisting that he’s a Muslim. My mom is also convinced that “self-possessed” is synonymous with “stuck-up,” no matter how many times I tell her that she’s WRONG. I swear, I have explained the meaning of that word at least a thousand times. And don’t get me started on her many misinterpretations of Scripture.)

One last one (for now)

42. Dave in Texas - September 29, 2008

Depends on the county Mrs. Peel. Most rural counties permit it, and it’s encouraged by the county extension office (with a bounty), because they prey on livestock.

43. xbradtc - September 29, 2008

I’m in OC, and there’s no shooting the coyotes. But when I was in Pullman, I could get anywhere from $5 to $25 per coyote. And on a good Saturday, I could get 5 or 6.

And the coyotes here (right downtown) think Fluffy or Buster make a perfect snack. I’ve seen them quite a few times, and more than once, my neighbors have asked if I’ve seen their cats.

That’s why my cat is an indoor cat.

44. Mrs. Peel - September 30, 2008

xbradtc has a cat?

*xbradtc’s sexiness quotient suddenly drops by about 20%*

45. lauraw - September 30, 2008

Coyotes…ugh. Don’t get me started.

They’ve grown bigger as they’ve populated the Northeast. They’re almost the size of timber wolves now.

A big brute chased my Yankee around the yard this past Spring, scared the Hell out of me. He was bigger than Yankee by a good two hands. He was right on my dog’s ass, zigging around the yard with his back all humped up in that ugly way they do.

I started yelling and clapping my hands and then he stopped and advanced on me, until I made a clatter trying to pull a big garden rake out of the bin (was unarmed) and my husband came running outside.

They are big and they have absolutely no fear of humans here in Connecticut.

Our neighbors shoot them. Hunting them is permitted and there is no limit.

46. Pupster - September 30, 2008

Lauraw,
May I suggest a new and improved ‘rake’, or ‘sweeper’….something in 12 gauge, perhaps?

http://world.guns.ru/shotgun/sh09-e.htm

47. xbradtc - September 30, 2008

Mrs. Peel, what was I to do? The poor guy was about to be homeless for the second time. He earns his keep by eating spiders in the house. And the occasional lizard that gets in. So, if I have to sacrifice my sexiness quotient (which was pretty dismal to start with), well, a man’s gotta do, what a man’s gotta do.

48. lauraw - September 30, 2008

Hah!

No, but seriously, I do need a critter gun. I have to get down to the store and have a talk with somebody who knows something about this sort of thing.

Winter’s coming, and that’s when they return to my neck of the woods. I almost never see or hear them in Summer.
In Winter they have parties and sing-alongs behind my neighbor’s house .
Last Winter I watched one come right up to my patio- again, almost the size of a smallish German Shepherd- and nose around on the bricks. I was five feet away on the porch hollering at it and it simply looked at me and resumed sniffing around as if I wasn’t there.

49. eddiebear - September 30, 2008

I duuno. Would a .22 be enough for the task?

50. harrison - September 30, 2008

Flamethrower.

51. Wile E. - September 30, 2008

Haters!

52. Dave in Texas - September 30, 2008

No, I wouldn’t recommend a .22, too hard to hit and may not drop. You gotta deal with a dog running around and all. I like the idea of a 12 ga. First one in the air, makes em stop (or haul ass away). If not, you have a still target for the second one.

Plus, doubles as a fine home defense weapon.

53. Michael - September 30, 2008

A potato cannon is the weapon of choice for coyotes, in my opinion.

54. not lauraw - September 30, 2008

SAY HELLO TO MY LIL FREN

55. Mr Minority - September 30, 2008

…sexiness quotient suddenly drops by about 20%

Excuse me Mrs. Peel, but do you realize that the average IQ of a cat owner is higher than a dog owner?

That cat owners are more independent than dog owners?

If you base “sexiness” on whether the person owns a cat or dog, then you Mrs. Peel are a critterist!

56. Dave in Texas - September 30, 2008

“cat owner”

logical flaw. you’ve got the ownership relationship completely reversed there.

57. xbradtc - September 30, 2008

For the record, I prefer dogs. I just know that I can’t give them the time or attention they need, and my back yard is about the size of a litter box. So I settled for a cat.

58. Enas Yorl - September 30, 2008

Cats rule, dogs drool.

59. composmentis - September 30, 2008

Mr. M, do you really prefer cats over dogs or are you just trying to impress bullshit Peel?

Because if you believe what you said, you should go back to listening to your Dixie Chicks cd’s and figuring out how to get the homeless to vote for Obama.

60. Mr Minority - September 30, 2008

^

Don’t give excuses where none is needed! Stand up like a man and admit “I like Cats!”

If people can’t accept that fact, then to hell with them and critterist hating.

61. Mr Minority - September 30, 2008

CM,
Actually I do like cats better than dogs, although i do have a dog (6mth old Border Collie/Australian Shepard mix).

Yes, I am an odd person, but I also don’t have to have a dog to justify my existence and to have something to control.

62. composmentis - September 30, 2008

Control? I love dogs because they are loyal, best friends. They are there with smiling eyes and wagging tails when you get home, even if you’ve only been gone 5 minutes. Even the smallest dog will bark and growl at the slightest hint of a trespasser. Dogs are constant companions.

I cannot say the same for cats. True, I have met and even taken care of a couple of cats that were great. But that’s because they were actually more like dogs.

63. Mr Minority - September 30, 2008

Dogs require a hell of a lot more care than cats Try potty training a dog vs a cat. Leave a bowl of food out for a dog, and it will eat it all, as where a cat will just eat what it needs. You can’t leave dog at your house for days at a time, where I have left cats alone for several day with no problems.

Dog owners like dogs because the dog is totally dependent upon them, as where cats are not and voluntarily give you love and affection.

64. BrewFan - September 30, 2008

Mr. M is the crazy cat lady dude on his block!

65. Dave in Texas - September 30, 2008

If you have a cat, in your house,

you have a box of shit, in your house.

66. Lipstick - September 30, 2008

Dogs are so needy. I don’t want something following me around all the time, looking all hopeful.

It’s bad enough walking by the ferret cage when they’re lobbying to get out. Makes me feel guilty.

67. Lipstick - September 30, 2008

Dave, at least cats don’t eat their own shit.

68. Lipstick - September 30, 2008

Plus with dogs, you have to pick up their warm steaming shit. Gag.

69. Dave in Texas - September 30, 2008

I don’t want something following me around all the time, looking all hopeful

Then tell Mr. L to go do the dishes or something.

70. Lipstick - September 30, 2008

ROFL !

I don’t let him do housework or laundry. He works all day and I get to stay home, so that’s my job.

71. Mr Minority - September 30, 2008

If you have a cat, in your house,
you have a box of shit, in your house

Nope, cat box is outside on a screened in porch with dog door from house to porch.

The only problem I have now is the dog has found out about it and I catch him out there munching cat turds.

72. kevlarchick - September 30, 2008

WTF is this country coming to?!! The Ferret Lobby is responsible for the economic meltdown.

I loves my dogses. I miss my old blue heeler, Spot. She was great.

73. Mrs. Peel - September 30, 2008

Would I rather walk around with a bag of shit for a couple minutes, OR would I rather have a box of shit in my house knowing that the animal digging around in the shit is also getting all over my kitchen counters, where I prepare food? Easy choice if you ask me.

Anyway, I decided I’m not going to date a cat person again. Especially not one that is afraid of dogs. When a man cringes and practically whimpers at the sight of a happy dog coming toward him looking for petting, that’s just not a turn-on.

74. xbradtc - September 30, 2008

Oh, I thought you meant my cat being afraid of dogs. Well of course he is. But whenever I can stop someone walking their dog and pet it, I do.

75. Lipstick - September 30, 2008

Peel, did I miss something? Is The Boy out of the picture?

76. Mrs. Peel - September 30, 2008

Broke up with him three weeks ago.

77. Lipstick - September 30, 2008

Oh I’m sorry — how are you doing?

78. BrewFan - September 30, 2008

Sorry to hear that Peely 😦

It hurts, sure, but now you know your real soulmate is still out there, waiting to be found. Enjoy the hunt!

79. Dave in Texas - September 30, 2008

Meeting a new dog is pretty cool. You just have to look non-menacing and give them a chance to give your hand a good smell.

80. daveintexas - September 30, 2008

also please see above comments fished outta spam thing from KC and Enas

81. Lipstick - September 30, 2008

The Ferret Lobby has some demands:

-more play time out
-more things to dig in
-more chew sticks and treats
-more ankles to nip
-make the books in the shelf looser so they can pull all of them out

They have offered me some earmarks. When one bit my ear, it left a mark.

82. Michael - September 30, 2008

Broke up with him three weeks ago.

Um, so you’re three weeks late telling us the news?

Sorry you are all heartbroken and stuff, but I think the moronosphere is expecting more timely reports about your personal life. Just sayin’.

Does this guy need killing? Is he a criminal? You could just post his address, and count on fellow Texan crimefighters to do the right thing.

*racks round into Kimber*

83. Dave in Texas - September 30, 2008

#81 heh

84. Mrs. Peel - September 30, 2008

dude, half the people I talk to daily don’t know. Probably more than half, in fact. Hell, I’d be surprised if more than half of them even knew I was dating someone to begin with. I like to keep my private life private.

Anyway, he doesn’t need killin’ unless stupidity is a crime. He just didn’t want to marry me (“I’m worried about the change it would make in my life”), so I ended it. I decided I deserved better than someone who thought that marrying me would be the worst thing that ever happened to him. (How about the frigging awesome change it would make in your life, buddy?) Which is kind of a breakthrough for me, because previously, I would have just put up with that.

85. Lipstick - September 30, 2008

I decided I deserved better

You were right.

Anyone who doesn’t realize what an awesome catch you are is too stupid to deserve you. Really.

IMO, marriage should be the easiest and most natural progression in the right relationship at the right time.

Infallible prediction from an old veteran: One day he will realize his mistake — and by then it will be too late because, having made your decision with a clear head, you will have moved way beyond.

But it’s still fun to hear the regrets of the ones who didn’t get it.

86. Michael - September 30, 2008

Which is kind of a breakthrough for me, because previously, I would have just put up with that.

Good for you. You should be proud. You have processed another growth experience in a very positive way.

Let me know if you change your mind about the killin’.

87. kevlarchick - October 1, 2008

*hugs for Peel*

Chin up, girl. Marriage is a beautiful thing with the right man.

88. composmentis - October 1, 2008

When a man cringes and practically whimpers at the sight of a happy dog coming toward him looking for petting, that’s just not a turn-on.

Agreed.

89. lauraw - October 1, 2008

I’ve always preferred older men anyway, but these days guys in their 20s are really still children.

Do they just seem that way to me because I’m older? I don’t think so. They’re pretty uniformly pushing off real responsibility/settling down into their thirties.

90. Mrs. Peel - October 1, 2008

thanks, guys.

No, you’re right, lauraw. They are delaying settling down. Kay Hymowitz had an article about it in the City Journal a while back. My only complaint was that she dwelt on video games quite a bit. You know, adults can game, too. Granted, most adults don’t/shouldn’t have the time to game seriously – I certainly don’t – but just because someone likes to unwind with a Wii doesn’t mean he’s a man-child. Personally, I’d rather have a husband who unwinds with a video game than one who unwinds with a six-pack.

91. Dave in Texas - October 1, 2008

>> I’ve always preferred older men anyway

ohhellyeah

*plucks an ear hair*

92. composmentis - October 1, 2008

I read part of that article Peel. While I agree that media culture such as Maxim magazine and movies like American Pie can affect how young men think and act, I believe the real underlying reason for so many young men not growing up is due to the independence and expectations of young women.

Today, more than ever, women are just as in charge of their financial futures as men. Women are graduating from college, hitting the workforce, making their own money and culturally don’t need a man to be what society now considers to be “successful.”

A couple of decades ago, women for the most part were still expected to rely upon a husband to be the provider. It is not so now. Hell, now women can have children without having sex with a man and society barely bats an eye.

The rules young men play by and the expectations our society places upon them have changed dramatically, and not for the better if you ask me.

93. composmentis - October 1, 2008

^91

I’ll see your ear hair and raise you a spare tire.

94. Mr Minority - October 1, 2008

Anyway, he doesn’t need killin’ unless stupidity is a crime. He just didn’t want to marry me (”I’m worried about the change it would make in my life”)

Mrs Peel, count your blessings that you weren’t straddled with a self-center wussie.

Marriage is a two-way street, give and take, accepting and sharing with another person in your life.

Not just tolerating another person taking up space in their life.

Cheer up Mrs Peel, the right guy for you is out there.

There are plenty of great guys (like ME, but I am taken) out there, that are willing to share their life with you forever.

95. Mr Minority - October 1, 2008

Hell, now women can have children without having sex with a man…

That’s Just Not Right!!

96. Dave in Texas - October 1, 2008

>> raise you a spare tire.

I call.

97. lauraw - October 1, 2008

Dave’s killing me.

98. Dave in Texas - October 1, 2008

If compos goes all in with “older men gas” on this hand I can’t cover the bet.

Ok, I’m lyin.

99. composmentis - October 1, 2008

I skipped the “older men gas” phase and went straight into the “dammit! I plotched again” phase.

Since you called, I am not allowed to reraise. We could however make a side bet. So I’ll put up a 24 pack of Depends and a future case of the gout.

100. Lipstick - October 1, 2008

Compos has the “crapping your shorts” card.

101. Lipstick - October 1, 2008

102. Dave in Texas - October 1, 2008

I’ll see your Depends and raise this weird blotchy thing on my right forearm.

What about a Martini?

105. composmentis - October 1, 2008

I’ll see your age spot and raise you a swollen prostate that makes me pee in six different directions.

106. Dave in Texas - October 1, 2008

I see your prostate (from Texas), raise my toenails. Both feet.

107. composmentis - October 1, 2008

Faaackk. I fold. Dave wins. He’s all urine lw.

108. doc - October 1, 2008

please make them stop, someone! Oh, the humanity.

109. doc - October 1, 2008

p.s. Sorry about your break up Mrs. Peel. I agree with Lipstick (and I’m not just being a suck-up, I could never compete with Michael) that he will have regrets. But it’s great that you are moving on with a positive attitude. Really it’s better for a guy to be honest and say he’s not ready to settle down (or grow up depending how you look at it) than to get married and screw around or otherwise cause the marriage to fail. His loss. Cheers.

The good doc

110. geoff - October 1, 2008

Three weeks and a day late, but I, too, am sorry to hear that things didn’t work out. But I recommend the thirtyish age for marriage anyway, so you’ve got plenty of time.

…and I’ll throw arm-length reading into the kitty.

111. Lipstick - October 1, 2008

Well, Step 1 is obviously not to meet Rosetta and Wiserbud for drinks.

Mrs.Peel — I’m sorry to hear that things didn’t work out with the Boy, but I join the others encouraging you. Consider yourself hugged. Glad he was (finally) honest about it all iffin he was sorta not making that whole future-thing clear up front.

139. composmentis - October 1, 2008

Come to find out they’re also planning to give me a colonoscopy when I’m 50.

Quit yer whinin’ you big baby. I had one when I was 35 and another last year. The worst part isn’t the procedure. It’s the prep. That, and getting to the table, having the anesthic administered, then having them ask you in a less-than-sober state if you mind if a couple of attractive, young female interns “observe your procedure.”

Zfine with me. Welcome to the party girls. You should have what I’m having.

Then, a sweet older nurse asks if you smoke.

Only when I drink. And I drink often.

She grabs your face in her hands, bends down, puts her face to yours and says, “You KNOW you shouldn’t smoke.” That was really and truly a very sweet gesture. She reminded me of my grandma, just as I fell asleep.

Good call on the Led Zep, Pups.

How’s the decorating going Cathy?

141. Dave in Texas - October 1, 2008

In the Evening

ohhellyes!11!1!!

I just got to have!

142. Cathy - October 1, 2008

the worst part isn’t the procedure. It’s the prep
*ditto*nasty to drink*rough on your gut*running*running*stuff*

Hi Lipstick!
Donated about 6 truckloads of stuff… to charity mostly. The purge feels good. Her efforts during the time here with me really helped. We got a lot done. Decorator flew home Sunday, and left list suggesting future purchases. Now I’m re-incorporating cherished items that she had “put outside” like the poor stuff was in a time-out.

*not so ready to pitch what she put outside*

Bottom line: House needs a good cleaning, especially the windows, but is lookin’ better and ’bout ready for IB company. You all will have to ask Dave what he thinks of the deco-job. Hopefully he shows up for another visit soon and can judge a before-and-after for you.
K Dave?

143. Lipstick - October 1, 2008

No more Persimmon Room?

144. Cathy - October 1, 2008

The Persimmon Room stays.

145. xbradtc - October 1, 2008

I thought we had decided the “Persimmon Room” would hereinafter be the “Almost as Ghey as Dave in Texas Room?”

146. Cathy - October 1, 2008

*snigger*

Didn’t get that memo.

147. xbradtc - October 1, 2008

Well, your husband was the one that wrote it. Ask him.

148. Dave in Texas - October 1, 2008

ALERT

Dave just fixed hisself up a big plate of scrambled eggs, sausage and cheese, smothered in some of that Marie’s habanero toxicity.

GOOD. STUFF.

149. Cathy - October 1, 2008

Well, your husband was the one that wrote it. Ask him.

Decorator is kinda cute.
She really charms him.
She fights with him and wins. (most times)
She’s got red hair.
I think he’s cool with the Persimmon Room …for now.

150. Cathy - October 1, 2008

Yum, Dave.

Today we had Marie Sharp’s on Asian Noodles with scrambled eggs.

Kinda like Nasi Goreng.

151. Dave in Texas - October 1, 2008

Nazi Goering?

well yeah, he was a Nazi all right.

152. xbradtc - October 1, 2008

148, well, it’s a little late to try to butch up, DinT…

153. Michael - October 1, 2008

I’ll give Dave credit for turning up his nose at the Persimmon Room, and going for the Gold Room that would be more appealing to the leather boys.

154. Lipstick - October 1, 2008

I’m sure The Persimmon Room would be a very nice place to stay.

Just sayin’

155. Mrs Peel - October 1, 2008

For the record, he WASN’T up front about not wanting me. I figured it out and confronted him, he didn’t deny it (or say much of anything at all, really), and that was it.

Anyway, I’m having a sweet potato with butter, cinnamon, and marshmallows for dinner tonight. mmmm And then I gots to study for my test tomorrow.

156. Cathy - October 1, 2008

Love ya, Peel. Sorry you had to confront him before he came clean.

Yummy din-din. Enjoy.

I’m having corn casserole smothered with chili and melted cheddar cheese with Marie Sharp’s hot sauce on top — a major favorite. Your dinner would run a close second for me.

157. geoff - October 1, 2008

I think I’ll warm me up a cup ‘o noodles. Yeehaw. And keep working. More yeehaw.

158. Cathy - October 1, 2008

*wondering how Lauraw’s Chicken Cardamom Soup came out*

159. pajama momma - October 1, 2008

Awww, I’m sorry Mrs. Peel, that sucks.

160. pajama momma - October 1, 2008

The only problem I have now is the dog has found out about it and I catch him out there munching cat turds.

if they’re not in kitty litter, they’re called tootsie rolls, in kitty litter is almond roca

161. Russ from Winterset - October 1, 2008

I’ll play catchup here:

Peel, I’m so sorry to hear about you and the boy. The most important thing for you to do right now is realize that he didn’t leave you because you’ve got a tragic flaw that drives away all the men in your life. It was him, it wasn’t you. You just happened to pick a guy who wasn’t ready to settle down for your first big post-college romance. It happens. You’ll find someone else to ride around in your Cherokee before you know it.

Michael, like anyone would trust a lawyer when a varmit’ needs killin. You’d brandish the Kimber at him, but then probably just serve him with some civil suits for alienating Peel’s affections or stealing her best wooden leg.

Dave, Compos, geoff, eddie, et al. – You guys are OLD. That, coming from the guy with a spare tire and Type 2 diabetes – but at least my “O” ring is still operating at manufacturer’s specs.

lauraw, ask your local gunshop proprietor about getting a good .22 magnum rifle. A bolt action Marlin would be good. With a good scope, a .22 mag can put the hurt on a ‘yote out to 125 yards, but it doesn’t travel nearly as far or make half the noise of a .223 or (God forbid) a .22-250. Plus, you should be able to get a good .22 mag rifle for under $250, and the ammo is less than $10 for a 50 round box. If you chose a .223, soft-point ammo costs around $14 or more a box, and the rifles typically cost you $450 or more. AND the .22 mag will go a mile or more if you shoot at an upward angle, but it won’t go as far as a centerfire rifle.

As far as the “cat/dog” conundrum goes, I grew up on a farm, so I’m an “all of the above person”. If my wife would let me, I’d have a snake or a turtle for a pet, along with cats & dogs. Cattle are OK pets, but letting them in the house is a BIG step.

163. Vmaximus - October 1, 2008

Mrs Peel,
I am sorry for your heartbreak, It is for the best I think.
.
.
LauraW
I have several “varmint rifles” you want one, I got it. Take care of anything smaller than deer size.
Or Deer size.
Or bear size,
Or Elephant size.
.
Your choice.
.
.
I also have pistols in varmint, deer
and bear size.

yea for you I will loan you one.
.
.
Sporting Dogs Rule!
Retrievers!

164. Lipstick - October 1, 2008

Peel ain’t heartbroken. Her former guy is though, I’ll bet.

165. Vmaximus - October 1, 2008

Lipstick,
The dumpee, usually is the one with the most pain.
The idiot that dumps,
is in his own selfish world, thinking only of himself.
.
.
.
However
Mrs Peel is the strong righteous one. Hurt but strong.
Face it love stinks

166. Lipstick - October 1, 2008

Nah, Peel was the dumper. The dude was wishy-washy and she said “Okey dokey, I’m outta here”

167. Lipstick - October 1, 2008

Mrs Peel is the strong righteous one.

True.

168. geoff - October 1, 2008

My belief is that before you finally settle down with The One (not the Democratic candidate for President), you should end a relationship and have one ended for you. Both are maturing events that help when you finally settle down.

169. Wickedpinto - October 1, 2008

SERENITY RIGHT FUCKING NOW!!!!

170. Lipstick - October 2, 2008

Word.

171. Mrs Peel - October 2, 2008

Peel ain’t heartbroken. Her former guy is though, I’ll bet.

I may be “the dumper,” but I’m also the one who wasn’t wanted or loved and who was rejected, so I don’t know where he would get off pretending he was all upset just because he didn’t have the balls to tell me he had stopped loving me. If he ever did to begin with.

172. lauraw - October 2, 2008

How can you help it, when the music starts to play
And your ability to reason, is swept away
Oh, heaven on earth is all you see, you’re out of touch with reality
And now you cry, but when you do, next time around someone cries for you

Hey, everybody plays the fool, sometime
Use your heart just like a tool, listen baby
They never tell you so in school, I wanna say it again,
Everybody plays the fool

173. geoff - October 2, 2008

Aren’t you a bit young for that, lw?

174. lauraw - October 2, 2008

Has anybody told you today that you’re gorgeous, geoff?

175. Cathy - October 2, 2008

but I’m also the one who wasn’t wanted or loved

Peel, the Boy’s the loser. And now you are free to first love yourself in a healthy way by finding someone who is capable of caring for you as you want and need.

And IF he’s upset, it might be because he isn’t getting what he wants anymore. Boo-hoo. Lazy non-committal little boys can throw their fits. They all have the power and choice to handle themselves like a grown men. And they can start by thinking of somebody other than themselves. He blew it.

Lauraw, you’re lovely.
Geoff, you’re a babe.

Lauraw — did your chicken cardamom soup (or whatever) turn out okay? I had never heard of that, but now I’m interested.

176. Cathy - October 2, 2008

I’m making home-made split pea soup for dinner tonight.
Yum. Family favorite.

177. Lipstick - October 2, 2008

You have to split all those peas by hand?

178. composmentis - October 2, 2008

Peel, nothing happens without a reason. The fabric of life simply won’t allow for that.

That which doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. I believe that. Just look at WP.

You can never be a true artist until you’ve had your heart broken at least once. Not that you’re necessarily geared toward art, but you can’t expect to write the kind of kick ass poetry LW puts without a little heartache.

You’re a hot chick. More importantly, you’ve got a fantastic, imaginative, and intelligent brain. Most importantly, based upon what I’ve heard from you, you have a wonderful heart.

You’re going to be fine.

179. geoff - October 2, 2008

Has anybody told you today that you’re gorgeous, geoff?

Geoff, you’re a babe

That’s what I get for not checking in all morning. Could’ve been walking on sunshine, instead of trudging through thermal analysis.

180. Cathy - October 2, 2008

You have to split all those peas by hand?

No peas were harmed by my hands in the making of this soup.

181. Pupster - October 2, 2008

182. Cathy - October 2, 2008

That’s what I get for not checking in all morning. Could’ve been walking on sunshine, instead of trudging through thermal analysis.

That’s what’s wrong with thermal analysis!!! No gratitude. No compliments!

Just take a good look in the mirror in the morning, Geoff, and see what we see, honey, and you’ll be good to go for the whole day.

183. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

I don’t let him do housework or laundry. He works all day and I get to stay home, so that’s my job.

CURSES!!!!

All the good ones are taken!

184. Cathy - October 2, 2008

Pinto.

Good ones are out there — you gotta know where to look for em.

185. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

Dog owners like dogs because the dog is totally dependent upon them, as where cats are not and voluntarily give you love and affection.

COMPLETELY WRONG!!!

Dog owners love dogs, because Dog owners treat dogs like family, and dogs love their owners for the same reason.

To leave a dog for a long period of time without care is a BETRAYAL.

Dogs are family, and their owners are the dogs Pack.

Dogs don’t run to the door because they are desperate, they run to the door because they love their pack, and humans who own dogs, love their dogs because those dogs are children.

I don’t know if cathy told the story, but as she told the story to the Ib’ers at the party about how the crimefighter lost her leg, cathy was damn near in tears, and michael had to fill in the story, until cathy could finaly finish it.

Cat people don’t care about pets, (and that thing about dogs eating everything is false) so they buy cats, because cats don’t care about people.

Dogs? They are something special.

186. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

I also need a job cathy.

187. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

AWWWW

How nice of Compos

That which doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. I believe that. Just look at WP.

You can never be a true artist until you’ve had your heart broken at least once.

I’m not an artist, just a guy with a keyboard.

188. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

Good ones are out there — you gotta know where to look for em.

Well, peels available, and I can do laundry.

Think thats a good compromise?

189. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

Not Sarcasm Compos, I was actually . . . . thankful.

Thats nice of you.

190. lauraw - October 2, 2008

Actually, I switched gears and made roasted chicken instead, Cathy. But in the spice mix I did use cardamom. I just love that stuff on all kinds of chicken now.
It works well as a savory/citrusy herb blended with other ingredients like black pepper, thyme, onion, and lemon.

191. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

I’ve had food with cardamom, but what does it taste like alone?

Never used it, cuz I am unfamiliar with it’s particular flavor.

192. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

as for all fowel, just stuff the skin with as much sage and butter as you can find.

I’m a KISS cooker, though I like to experiment.

193. Cathy - October 2, 2008

Pinto. About the job…
What do you want to do?
Do what you love and the money will follow.

About the good ones out there…
What are you willing to do or endure to find the right woman for you?

Don’t be asking me/us about Mrs. Peel.
She has a mind and a say of her own. Talk to her.

194. Cathy - October 2, 2008

Lauraw. Thanks for the ideas. Since you mentioned that cardamom and chicken combo I’ve been looking for recipes with cardamom in them. Yummy.

I think it is a great line-up for fall.

195. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

Cathy, I get that “what do you want” stuff all the time.

Other than Marine, I don’t know.

Fact is, there is nothing I’m not good at, and there is nothing I don’t enjoy other than anal rape, anal rape, probably sucks, and I probably wouldn’t like it and I probably wouldn’t be good at it.

THATS my problem.

Not an ego thing, I’m TOO FUCKING GOOD!

I’m not an expert, though I ROCKED the Marine Corps, but that is because they expect first termers to be morons.

I’m good at everything, and, so. . . whats my goal?

I used to joke about the stupid interview question:
“Where do you see yourself in 5 years.”
“Emporror of the world.”
“You think thats gonna happen?”
“If the people knew what was good for them.”

Really, I’m good, not great, not brilliant, I’m not a specialist, the best job for me, IS emporrer of the world.

As ridiculous as that sounds, it, IS what I’m fit for.

Not just cuz of my name in the blogs, but in fact.

Cathy?

How long did it take for me to take control of a room filled with people, all of whom were much more prosperous and educated than I?

3 minutes? 5 minutes? Probably less than 3?

I’m a natural born leader, it’s in my build, it’s in my voice, it’s in my mind.

Marine, is the only thing I can reasonably do without going batshit crazy.
And being a Marine Drove me batshit crazy.

196. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

I don’t like it, but it’s true.

I attract attention, at first, it’s insults, then everyone realizes I’m neither a pussy or a fool.

My brother has it, but it’s not as natural for him.

For me? It’s basicaly all I can do.

197. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

Know part of the reason I left my last job?

I told a co-worker, who was also a friend, to get the fuck away from the hoist.

Everyone thinks they are in charge, fine, you are in charge, of YOU!

I’m the kinda person who realizes that MY actions might affect others.

Anyways, I sat back in my line job at a Ford Feeder plant, and my friend, not violating any rules, stuck his head under the hoist I was in control of.

I pulled the hoist back, and bitched at my friend, “GET THE FUCK AWAY FROM THE HOIST.”

co-workers, bosses, none of them cared.

about 10 minutes later, I said, ” FUCK OFF NOW!!!”
I wasn’t holding onto the hoist, I grabbed the about 400lb reare axle of a 4 wheel drive ford 500, and I geeked my shoulder as I managed to pull the axle those few inches that kept my co-worker, and friend, from being killed.

I couldn’t show up to work.

I couldn’t.

I am VERY good at broad responsibility, thanks to my service, but DIRECT and small responsibility?

Scares the shit out of me.

I NEVER wanna be the guy on the hoist, or the guy on the other side of the furnace, or the guy behind the wheel of a truck.

I will not, I CANNOT! accept one life’s responsibility anymore.

However? If I’m allowed at least input? I can send out army’s.

It’s ridiculous, but that is who I am.

Emporror of the world.

198. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

also I Imagine the emperor has a secretary, so spelling is not a disqualifier.

199. Cathy - October 2, 2008

Pinto. I wish there was a job for you where all you had to do was be as darling as you are and emperor.

The “do what you love” stuff is the principle of “right-livelihood” and has books and experts into helping people find their sweet-spot and ignore the skills, money and success issues that many of us think we are supposed to be focusing on.

It isn’t rainbows and kittens stuff, it basically means you pursue what you love and be willing to risk, be treated badly, work hard, fail at it a bit and all, but to keep working at it because you LOVE it.

So what do you love doing that much that you are basically willing to fight and struggle for it?

Am I helping here? I don’t wanna sound like I’m preachin’.

200. geoff - October 2, 2008

Ya gotta go with something lucrative that puts you in a state of flow. Here are examples from my life:

Non-lucrative flow
o Ultimate
o Robotron
o Pinball

Lucrative flow
o Writing proposals (often) and final reports (not so much)
o Programming
o Preparing presentations

201. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

Cathy?

Those books weren’t written for people like me.

It really is not ego, I wish it were.

Takes me all of a month to be in charge, if even that.

202. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

I WANT to be a Shlub!!!

I can’t,

Even when I’m a shlub.

203. Cathy - October 2, 2008

You’re right Geoff, some cash-flow helps.

I was being myopic. My bad. Someone has to be willing to pay you something for what you do or provide.

So Pinto. Being in charge is great, but it may or may not get you any pay. What is something that someone is willing to pay you to do or provide. If you love doing it you will last longer doing it and hopefully end up more content and happy in the process.

204. geoff - October 2, 2008

By “put in a state of flow” I mean essentially whatever puts you in the zone. There’s a series of old posts on flow at my site.

Flow makes work worth doing.

205. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

I don’t WANT TO BE!!!

206. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

I’m a NORMAL GUY!!!

I was RAISED a normal guy.

I’m single, and don’t intend to get married, I don’t have kids and I don’t intend to.

I WANT to be a normal guy!!

but something about me won’t let me be just one more shlub like the doofi I know.

thats why I don’t have a job now.

I’m SICK of it, fucking SICK of it.

My signature is all over the place on important things,

And I’m FUCKING SICK OF IT!!!

Just let me be normal?

207. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

I can be a secretary, and in a month, I will be “climbing the ladder.”

I don’t want that, can’t I just be FUCKING NORMAL FOR A WHILE!?

208. Cathy - October 2, 2008

Geoff. Your “flow” comment got me to realize that I had left out an important element, getting paid something. Now I’m realizing that I didn’t understand what the eff you were talking about. Thanks for being kind and not calling me a moron. I owe ya.

WickedPinto. What is normal? I dont’ think I understand your frustration… assuming that when you PUT ALL THE WORDS IN CAPS that it means something like that.

209. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

Well you and mike know where I grew up.

I just wanna be a normal guy like the people I grew up with.

Why do I have to end up being something else?

210. geoff - October 2, 2008

Scope creep.

211. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

My buddy geoff?

MUCH smarter than I am, MUCH! married (and divorced) 2 BEAUTIFUL kids, great father, musician, this fucking guy, this fucking guy can pack a pumpkin into a cantelope, he does so much in a day.

Because he’s normal.

I don’t wanna be geoff, I just wanna know what it’s like to be geoff. Not the wife and kids, but the Normal!!!

I’ve NEVER been normal, NEVER!!!

Everyone had expectations, and it was so common for me, that I thought that everyone was like that, but it’s not.

Even now as I try to be NORMAL, those expectations top out, and I do that “take charge” thing I mentioned.

I’m not kidding.

As a kid, as an adult, even after my fucking Court-Martial, and now that I’m an unemployed doofus, the weight of the world falls on my shoulder, whether it is planned or not.

I’m FUCKING SICK OF IT!!!

212. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

I’m GOOD at it, but I am fucking sick of it!

213. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

geoff “scope creep?”

Is that towards me?

214. geoff - October 2, 2008

(and divorced)

??? Not the last time I called home.

Is that towards me?

Yeah. A little program management humor.

215. Mrs Peel - October 2, 2008

I’ve never been normal either, WP. Join the club.

geoff is sizzling, in my opinion.

Speaking of sizzling and not normal, today I totally flirted with a guy (not remotely seriously; he was old) over his calculator watch. All the other women in the room were like “what?” It was hilarious.

216. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

over his calculator watch

Okay, that made me laugh, after a bad afternoon.

Did you know my Sox Lost.

FUCKERS!!!

217. geoff - October 2, 2008

Yowza. If you think I’m sizzling now, wait until I pull out my old HP calculators.

The RPN seduction.

218. Cathy - October 2, 2008

geoff is sizzling, in my opinion.

Wow, Goeff. Three for three.

219. Cathy - October 2, 2008

Ok. I misspelled Geoff up there…

And btw — I’ve never been normal either. Have learned how to zip up my creepy parts to keep from scaring folks.

220. geoff - October 2, 2008

Wow, Goeff. Three for three.

I think I’d better quit while I’m ahead. Way ahead. Farther ahead than I could have imagined.

Ah well, time to get back to work. It’s going to be another late one.

221. Mr Minority - October 2, 2008

The RPN seduction.

Uh, Geoff, I think you may have lost 90% of the readers with that reference.

222. Mr Minority - October 2, 2008

not remotely seriously; he was old

Ageist!!

223. Mrs Peel - October 2, 2008

Have learned how to zip up my creepy parts to keep from scaring folks.

I really want to read that as “creepy pants”…

Man, Pepper really hates this one dog in the neighborhood. It’s an enormous white monster. I don’t know what breed, but it looks like a baby polar bear or something – very large with very long, thick white fur. (After googling around, I think it might be a Great Pyrenees.) Whenever she sees it, she always goes apeshit barking at it and keeps barking even after it’s long gone. Heh.

224. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

So peel,

How ya doing?

Hear your single?

Must be ruff, wanna drink?

225. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

Gran Pyrenees.

They all have 4 dew claws, which means they are basicaly horribly inbread monsters.

226. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

ruff ruff.

227. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

Drink?

228. Mrs Peel - October 2, 2008

Sure, WP. Pass me some ginger ale. But open the can and pour it right in front of me, and if I have to go to the bathroom, you’re pouring me a new one, got it?

229. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

No sweat *sneaks a ruffie*

Here you go.

230. Mrs Peel - October 2, 2008

*eyes you suspiciously*

231. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

Just a drink.

232. lauraw - October 2, 2008

Yeah, OK, so Peel and WP are flirting.

*looks out the window fully expecting to see the Four Horsemen*

(Don’t sass me WP. I will heave a snapping turtle at you faster than you can say “mofaku, is that a snappi- OW! OWWIE!! GET IT OFF!!”)

233. Wickedpinto - October 2, 2008

I’m flirting, I think Peel is teasing.

234. Mrs. Peel - October 2, 2008

I’m teasing. I think we can all agree that that would never work.

235. Russ from Winterset - October 2, 2008

you know, I joked with my wife last night that “hey, wouldn’t it be funny if Peel and WP ended up happily together?”

she did not see the humor there

236. Lipstick - October 2, 2008

They’re both good looking.

237. lauraw - October 2, 2008

They are both mammals.

238. Russ from Winterset - October 2, 2008

does that mean you could milk WP?

239. doc - October 2, 2008

as far as we know.

240. Cathy - October 2, 2008

I could see it.
