    In the year of our Lord,2000, I found my Best Kisser,Best snuggler,Best listener,The Best Understander of Human Language. The name is WD-Not just WD, But Wonder Dog. As I first saw her over the shoulder of my now Ex-Wife...She gave me a Kiss-A sloppy puppy kiss that I can never forget. All I ever had to say " Give me a kiss " and she would always lick my lips or snuggle with me. She was always " The Best Kisser " I've ever had.
    Today-JJ passed away,something I was never prepared for....something I always thought that I was the first one to go. This is NOT the way it should be....Yet she was with me when it happened. I will never have another daughter like JJ.

Off to FL, and RH what have I told you about us women and 'floaties'?? We don't need no stickin' floaties, we have our own. :)

      I think it's a case of the media getting better & faster at covering news they can sensationalize. We've always had the human bowl of cereal with all it's fruits, nuts & flakes. We're just hearing about it more because the media's web is more pervasive than ever before.

      August 24, 2012 at 12:25 pm |
      • MicheleG™

        I don't know about the "sensationalism" but rather when I big thing happens it seems like I cannot change channels and escape it.

        I think there is WAY too much duplication and repetition, but maybe that's the definition of "sensationalism."

    Hi ho on a weird morning. Whew, I wake up to murder and mayhem in NYC.

    I confess that I have a hard time trying to figure out how think about these things.

    I can't imagine the desperation that would drive someone to this type of killing. I can understand the awful feeling of being fired in this economy, but how in the world would killing someone help? Things have to get better soon, there's just been way too much of these situations recently.

      And it took less than 5 minutes for Bloomberg to blame the incident on "there's too many guns out there".

    Good morning all. Just got my azz chewed by someone who isn't my boss (or anyone else's), who doesn't know how to manage his own time, so therefore everything is my fault. Brilliant. I'm going to lunch now. I'm going to eat it wearing rose-colored glasses so everything will look better and I will no longer feel the need to put my fist thru him, I mean, a wall.

    Thanks for letting me vent.

      @Truth- when you find out, let me know. Hard to believe all of this is going on..

      August 24, 2012 at 10:04 am |

      Reports are saying the shooter was fired from his job and returned for his revenge. SAD !!

        @ JDizz- you trying to turn this into MTV?

        August 24, 2012 at 9:07 am |
        • Jdizzle McHammerpants ♫♫ @ Spot

          If I were, I'd be posting episodes of 16 and Pregnant and a lot of episodes of The Gays dating. MTV2? Maybe 7 years ago.

          August 24, 2012 at 9:23 am |
        • angrybabykitty

          @JDizz- so, its Spot now? Lmao..true that. I reminisce about the days MTV actually had music and not trashy junk.

    Wow. That's a sterile kitchen.

    Decided I am not shaving today, a decision I will most likely regret around 2. I normally shave on M-W-F cause my neck is sensitive (stop, Truth, you silly goose!). Guess I better wear a dark shirt today and sport the modern GQ look.

          Meh, preseason. We'll see if Manning can throw deep to the right, been having problems. Sept 9th will soon be upon us. That is a day NGF and I cannot be in the same room. And also the week I start ruling the W/L predictions.

      @JDizz- thanks, now that awful song will be in my mind all day and tonight. I'll get you for this..lmao. have a happy Friday! Woke up with allergies, so if I plan on making it through tonight, I better go back to bed.

      August 24, 2012 at 9:05 am |

        Cat allergies?

        • angrybabykitty

          @ Jdizz- probably so since they woke me up at 3 am chasing each other on the bed. Actually, this is probably a cold since a guy we arrested the other night coughed all over us.

    TGIF--just one more trip before my weekend starts.Hope everyone is doing well. @JBJ & AleeD-Don't forget your rain suits,umbrellas and "rubbers" ( the booties is what I'm talking about ) plus a couple of floaties for the next few days.
    @Truth-I'm trying to stir the pot a little on the Slaughterhouse thread. :))
