  1. Coach Jdizzle McHammerpants ♫♫

    Word up, beyatches! Had our first AYSO soccer practice yesterday afternoon. Coach Jdizz was a little nervous putting on practice for his first time ever in any sport, shoved into head coach role due to lack of volunteers – with about 10 parents watching. Went pretty well. Worked up a nice sweat as it was about 1000% humidity. Pumpkins first game on Saturday.

    Wow... the person in today's pic looks almost too young to drink coffee...

      IS there a "legal age" for coffee drinking?

      • AleeD®

        Nope, but maybe someone can come up with a good punchline for the people who someone put 15 creamers & 15 sugars in their morning joe. That's the most I've seen on the drive-thru screen after the car in front of me has pulled away. I've been told, someone asked for 30 & 30 once. Eeesh.

        (Think I'd better put that "Grumpy" back)

        September 4, 2012 at 1:14 pm |
        • MicheleG™

          I wouldn't go so far as 15 but I am one of those who like coffee with their cream. I use heavy whipping cream....

    Sounds like YOU need some time in the dungeon.

    September 4, 2012 at 12:22 pm |
    • Grumpy AleeD®@Sir Biddle

      I'm not sure I would do the good folks of my avocation any favors if I had dungeon time today. Mistresses are supposed to be in control. I could lose it and take out my aggressions on some unsuspecting young man like DJ ... 0-o

      ... hmm ... you may be onto something ... ~_~

        He's a gentle young gentle, mistress...

        • AleeD®@Truth™

          He would be but putty in my hands. Not to be confused with butt putty.

          Butt Buddy?

          September 4, 2012 at 2:29 pm |
    • Sir Biddle@Grumpy Alee

      I meant you would be the recepiant in the dungeon. Reversing the roles can do a body (and mind) good.

    Good Morning Kidz from Big Cabin,OK. I'm still looking for the Big Cabin....How was the long weekend? Let's see, QOE made into Canada, JBJ and Hubs are leaving WA today on Cheapo Airlines,and I found an Iowa BBQ joint just around the corner from the truckstop. It wasn't Texas Que but it was still Good. Have a Great Day Everyone.

    • angrybabykitty

      @RH- no BBQ is as good as Texas BBQ :)! Just my opinion and I have tried many different kinds. My email went on the crazy side and wouldn't allow me to send out emails. Think it is fixed now. How have you been?

      • RichardHead@ABK

        Hey Girl..........I'm doing very well. Headed to your old stomping grounds of Phart Worth,TX. :)) I'm now under a new account with Target so I'll be pulling 5 or 6 different states in the Southwest and midwest. I HATE driving in snow,but I imagine I will see some this winter. I'm glad the little one had a great party.

    • Sir Biddle@RH

      What's the name of the place and where in Iowa?

    Good morning all!

    How is everyone doing after the long weekend?

    • Jerv@Truth

      Doing great. Looks like it is going to be a slow day with everyone around here nursing hangovers.

      • Grumpy AleeD®@Jerv

        Shhhh. No loud typing.

        September 4, 2012 at 9:15 am |
        • Truth™@Jerv, ABK, AleeD

          Doing well here. Getting out of town for ten days, starting tomorrow. Life is good!

        • Jerv@Grumpy AleeD

          Haha! My boss is trying to act like she has a head cold coming on. I know better. Threw back a few too many.

          Are you doing mission work in China??

          September 4, 2012 at 9:43 am |
        • Truth™@Jerv

          No mission work, just mostly doing the tourist thing. I've rented a motorcycle through my hotel, so I want to explore some. Should be fun.

        • Grumpy AleeD®@Jerv&Truth™

          Jerv: Too bad she doesn't have the self-esteem to admit she partied. Who would care? I'm hoping lunch will shake off my bad alt!tude.
          Truth™: Speaking of alt!tude, fly safely and enjoy your time away. How long are you staying this time?

        • Mary Shannon

          Why are you grumpy today, nice lady?

          September 4, 2012 at 10:54 am |
        • Grumpy AleeD®@Mary

          Thank you for asking, Sweet Mary. I'm working on ignoring 2 people's bug-f&*king, condescending at!tudes. While I'm working on getting over it, I'm also sharpening the spikes on my thigh-high boots. You just never know ...

          September 4, 2012 at 12:11 pm |
        • Mary Shannon

          It never hurts to be prepared....pun very much intended.

      @Truth- survived the 4 year old's party. She got way too much stuff and had a blast. How are you doing?

    Mm-mm. Just love me a bowl of Special-Kay-Eerios Bites after a long night on the town ... uh, job. Now, let's see what the gang on the Coffee Klatsch is up to this morning ....
