      Can I get some bacon wrapped bacon?

    "Mitt Romney made a potential speaking gaffe Wednesday when he said he "wasn't concerned about the very poor" because there is a safety net in place for them." That is all.

      YOU MEAN MITT ROMNEY ISN'T PERFECT?!?!? Oh woe is us – NOT! I'm looking forward to a life Mitt-out Romney.

    • Truth™@TJI, Stooge

      If Mitt, Newt and Obozo are the best that either party can bring to the table, our nation is in very deep trouble.

        Now now there, have more respect for Mittens. LOL! I love it when folks call that liberal stooge Mittens. End of a very long day. I'm getting drunk tonight. Bye y'all!

        I think we have our election year "Best Name Yet" signed, sealed, and delivered.

    I'm seeing a banner at the bottom of my page that says, "CNN Special live coverage Nevada caucuses ..."

    If it's showing up on your page, let me know if I'm the only one who, at first glance, thought it was an ad for Domino's pizza.

    February 2, 2012 at 12:41 pm |
    • ™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™@AleeD

      *raises hand* I see it, yep the same colors as Dominoes. Yesterday I saw the Bloggers Spotlight listed and thought it said the Booger Spotlight. Note to self to get eyes examined..

    • AleeD®@™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™

      Good morning or afternoon to you nice lady. Don't worry about getting your eyes checked. Just get yourself 50 inches like Michele did. This is a case where bigger is definitely better.

    *looks at today's picture* Wow.... I wish I was awake enough to look that smug with coffee (or tea) in the morning.

    Happy Thursday Klatchkies! I will be watching the game myself though I have a low interest rate because my BF just got a 50 incher. Sunday afternoon is booked!

    February 2, 2012 at 12:20 pm |
    • Mildred

      Got a 50 incher what?

      And... there's a game? (I don't follow sports... but I have a marginal interest being from NY.)

      High Definition plasma TV. It's impressive. When it's ON we WILL watch it. You can't ignore it!

      February 2, 2012 at 12:24 pm |
      • MicheleG™

        I've never had one that big before, so I'm overly impressed. (I know, I know, it's just a fancy over sized TV, but still.....)

        February 2, 2012 at 12:26 pm |
    • AleeD®@MicG™

      You can be sure if there was a 50 incher in my living room, I'd be watching it – at first.

      (just trying to figure out where to start is the question)

      February 2, 2012 at 12:26 pm |
      • MicheleG™

        All the buttons are sort of obscure. If it weren't for the Remote Control the TV would be a rather large paperweight.

        February 2, 2012 at 12:28 pm |
      • AleeD®@MicG™

        Siruisly, getting my mind out of man parts, can you find a picture of it on the net somewhere? I'd love to see what you/he got!

        February 2, 2012 at 12:37 pm |
      • MicheleG™{keyword}

        Sort of plain looking but the picture makes some images life size. Amazing. I remember those teeny tv's of the fifties when I was a kid. Technology marches on!

        February 2, 2012 at 12:42 pm |
      • AleeD®@MicG™

        That's going to be a sweet view of the game for you. Congrats! Ultimately, will you hang it on the wall or do you have something you'll sit it on.

        February 2, 2012 at 12:46 pm |
      • MicheleG™

        It's on a biggish stand we bought for it, wide enough that we don't walk into one of the ends, but we are going to anchor it to the wall pretty soon. It weighs 60 pounds and it's sort of top heavy. We live in earthquake country so a tie down is mandatory.

    Borther RichHead is on target. They are talking 5-10" starting at dinnertime tonight, and continuing into Saturday. I am thinking work from home manana and get a start on the 200+ pages of reading that is on tap for thei weekend.

    How is everyone doing today?

    February 2, 2012 at 9:10 am |
    • AleeD®@Truth

      Doing well except in the patience department, Sensei. I guess it's my turn with the modbots today. I'm trying to post something on the Kit Kat thread and I seem to be in perpetual moderation. *deep breath ... in .... out ...* And I can't figure out why it's in the queue. *deep breath ... in .... out ...*

      Do you have any words of wisdom for this willing & impatient student?

        While I enjoy their music, I haven't seen them live. IS Axel truly a good entertainer?

        February 2, 2012 at 8:53 am |
      • Sir Biddle@AD

        I saw them in the 80's and they were an awesome show. While that was 25+ years ago, I hear they still put on a great show. Jerv is right though as Axel's attitude is the same and they generally never start the shows ontime. Oh well. Will still be aweome to see them as they were my favorite in high school.

        While clean cut now, I was the kid in black concert t-shirts, mullet, giant glasses, acne, tall and gangly.

        February 2, 2012 at 9:13 am |
