    I am back, what have I missed?

    • The Witty One™@Truth

      I have my neck pierced.

      November 30, 2011 at 4:03 pm |
      • Truth™@Two.0

        Somehow I didn't get an image of you are the pierced type...I thought of you more like a Ryan Reynolds type...

      • The Witty One™@Truth

        I went through a piercing phase. I only keep the neck one around because when people see me in this area, I get categorized into the uptight, trendy, young professional crowd and that doesn't really define me as a person. I like to make them wonder a bit :)

      • Truth™@Two.0

        Goes to show you never can tell...

        No ink or piercings here, though I used to have an earring. The local saying is that you know you are a true Coloradan when you have five tats/piercings, though none are readily visible when dressed...

    Any of my chums here been to Copenhagen or know someone who has?? Looking for a recommendation for a hotel room for 1 night/3 adults, close to sights, besides Hotel Nimb, gulp, $1,400 a night is a little steep.

      I was just checking out The Worst Stuff Ever and they have a Worst Piercing Ever and I have that piercing... :(

      November 30, 2011 at 2:33 pm |
      • Sir Biddle@2

        The back of the neck piercing?!?!?! WTF?!??!?!

        November 30, 2011 at 2:37 pm |
    • AleeD®@TWO & Sir Bid

      Scr3w work. "Best Headline Ever" at the bottom of pg 6

      2, I don't see anything more wrong with that piercing than most others I've seen.

      November 30, 2011 at 2:42 pm |
      • The Witty One™@AleeD

        I like it. I can't wear the eyebrow or tongue anymore cause of work so it's my sort of F-U to "the man" :)

        November 30, 2011 at 2:48 pm |
      • Sir Biddle@2 & AlleD

        I just think it would pull or tug and hurt most of the time. 4th one down is hilarious!

        November 30, 2011 at 2:55 pm |
      • The Witty One™@Sir B

        When I got home from getting it done I snagged my shirt tag on it. I prompty cut off all the tags on all my shirts and only bought tagless shirts from that point on. It doesn't get caght on anything anymore and if it does, it doesn't hurt.

        November 30, 2011 at 3:04 pm |
      • Sir Biddle@2 & AlleD

        Its better than a prince albert piercing

        November 30, 2011 at 3:09 pm |
      • The Witty One™@Sir B

        Well put.

        November 30, 2011 at 3:16 pm |
      • AleeD®@TWO & Sir Bid

        I pity the fool who needs to be catheterized after getting that done. If he's unconscious and needs it, oh well? On the bright side, after the catheter comes out he'll be able to p33 like a Rainbird!

        November 30, 2011 at 3:18 pm |
      • Queen of Everything@AleeD

        I've cathed a guy with a Prince Albert. He bawled like a baby. If you can withstand getting your purple nurple pierced, you should be able to handle a Foley. Wu$$.

        November 30, 2011 at 3:26 pm |
      • AleeD®@QOE

        Agreed. He was probably drunk when he got the PA. You should have gotten him drunk before you Foley'd him. HA!

      • The Witty One™@QOE

        With all the advances in modern medicine, don't you think someone would come up with a way to make that a little less invasive? Just sayin'

        November 30, 2011 at 3:37 pm |
      • Queen of Everything@TWO

        Unfortunately, short of a surgical incision, there is only one direct route to the bladder and that's up ye olde ying-yang.

        They can't just like tape it or something? Or let me pee in the bed?

    Ok, my day is looking a little less horrendous, but still crummy. Still lousy though, any way you cut it. Just not as bad...

    November 30, 2011 at 1:03 pm |
    • AleeD®@Truth™

      Glad things are looking up for you! Does this tie into you having to fire that hamhock a couple of weeks ago?

      November 30, 2011 at 1:27 pm |
      • Truth™@AleeD

        No, this has to do with my director, who has the ethics of an alley cat and the mating habits of one as well...

        November 30, 2011 at 1:31 pm |
      • AleeD®@Truth™

        Is she trying to claw up your alleyway?

        November 30, 2011 at 1:43 pm |
      • Truth™@AleeD

        Actually he is a lecherous old guy. We had a breakfast meeting and he spent most of it trying to hit on the waitress, who had to be 25, max. It was embarrasing.

    If you're happy about your impending cro tch fruit, you may choose to refer to them as F0ck Trophies.
    That would make his/her baby carriage a Trophy Case.

      Have a great time!! If you see The Hangover Slot machine, you must try it, so much fun. ;)

      November 30, 2011 at 12:54 pm |
      • Queen of Everything@JBJ and MG

        "Hangover Slot machine" I'm pretty sure that was Kim Kardashians nickname.

        November 30, 2011 at 1:51 pm |
      • Dr. Phil™@Queen

        Why all the hating on the Kardashians?
        They seem like fine young women to me. With a caring, devoted mother, and fine, upstanding values and a dedication to thier spouses...

        November 30, 2011 at 2:04 pm |
      • AleeD®@Dr. Phil™

        Dedicated to their spouses no matter how many nanoseconds they're married.

    Good morning class! Daughter, SIL, 3 & 7 yr old granddaughters and their 6 y/o boy cousin arrived last night, I stayed up way too late playing, so my jet is lagging this a.m. Did someone mention gingerbread coffee?

      RH – Yeah, poor Odie, he hated all the attention and petting last night...*rolls eyes*! :)

      AleeD – No cream, thanks!

      I am meeting them tomorrow at The Happiest Place on Earth, to take the girls to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique for princess makeovers!!!! I can't wait, pics to follow.

      November 30, 2011 at 12:27 pm |
      • AleeD®@™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™

        Please do take lots of pics and please please share if you can!! A friend of mine took her 4 year old to the BBB at Downtown Disney in Wh0rlando. I couldn't go, missed the whole thing and she only took two pics.

        November 30, 2011 at 2:27 pm |
      • ™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™@AleeD

        Of course! My oldest gd did the BBB in Wh0relando and it was awesome, it was her 6th bday and she was Jasmine, all the little kids at the park would wave to her and call her Jasmine, so she played along and had that whole Queen wave going on (no offense to our majesty here).

  12. Sir Biddle@NFL Pickers

    Lets see how folks do this week with these games:

    Philly vs Seattle (Thursday night game)
    Atlanta vs Houston
    Tennesee vs Buffalo
    Cincy vs Pittsburg

    Going with Philly over Seattle and will do other picks by end of the week.

    November 30, 2011 at 10:59 am |
    • RichardHead

      SirB is a sly Devil...Here's my picks....
      1. Philly
      2. Atlanta
      3. Buffalo
      4. The Steel Curtain–Steelers.
      Let it be written,let it be so....

      November 30, 2011 at 11:45 am |
      • Sir Biddle@RH

        A sly devil....but whatever do you mean?

        Hahahaha, Your trying to confuse the Queen.

        Good catch!

        November 30, 2011 at 12:00 pm |
      • Queen of Everything@Richard & SirB

        Color me confused, gentlemen, 'cause I don't get the joke (shocking, I know). Anyhoo, here are my picks for winners:
        Philly vs. Seattle: Eagle vs. Seahawk. I'm not sure what a seahawk is but it sounds more badazz than and eagle. I'm going with Seattle.
        Atlanta vs. Houston: Texans like their guns so I'm pretty sure they shoot falcons. I think falcons might be endangered so they should probably stop. Either way, I'll take Houston.
        Tenn vs. Buffalo: Nice alliterative pick, Biddle. The only Bill's I know are sad sacks that still play Dungeons & Dragons in their basement on Friday nights. So, I'm going to have to go with Tennessee. Fun fact: The cadence of the word "Tennesee" is heard when someone has an audible S4 heart sound. More commonly referred to as a split S1 or atrial gallop.
        Cincy vs. Pittsburgh: The Bengals are sort of "meh" but I really hate the Steelers. Go Bengals! Plus, bengals sort of sounds like bangles and The Bangles make me smile.

      Let me know if this link works:

      Best time I've spent with my dil to-date. Her spouse is still a self-centered turd. Guess you can't have everything.
