The other night on Leno, she blew her nose into a tissue...and well, they're selling it on Ebay, where it's up to $4K!
If I only had $4K....I admit, I still wouldn't buy this! Even though it is for charity!
UPDATE: Final Price $5,300! Who says we're broke!

My fellow blogger, the charming Cynnie is now giving advice based on her scant but wizened years on this globe to what questions matter to you. I will now return the favor, and post the questions and answers right here for the world to read.

What do you think, the new FS picture?
Here we are in the same shot. Isn't Pete handsome? or just cute? or looking like he's trying to sell me something?
There's more to life than alcohol abuse. Not much more, but there is eating! Thus, a menu!
All of New York was worried about their stock portfolios that week so I, too, had to pretend I cared. Note the gravitas -- or perhaps merely heartburn!
Alas, that's all I got (well, maybe more later :) ) as my camera came back from being fixed two days late for me to take it! Ah, well, next trip!

One swore that he would pull out early and who believes that!?
Besides, I think he thought that that was what I wanted to hear, but how much of a difference would that make anyway? His delivery wasn't as smooth as the bankers and hippies hanging around him, and not as sincere. His grinning friend with the hair plugs didn't make him any sexier.
The other swore that even though the last guy from his office broke my heart and made me cry, he was different, and that "Change was coming", which, as a pick up line, is...uninspiring.
He swore I'd take home more money when he was through, but a 10% discount coupon for boat insurance from AIG and a partial ownership in a timeshare in Reykjavik is not what I would call "more."
His cute-as-a-bug daughter? --granddaughter?-- might wink at me and have me throw him a pity pout, but only once, and not again, even four years from now.
The only Change that is coming in this girls life is my pension, which I'll find between the cushions of the sofa, I think.

Why, that's now John McCain's pick for vice president, Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin!
How could you not want to vote for the new Algonquin Society?
Plus....she'll supply America with venison...
This is Sarah Palin as Miss Wasilla!
This is Dawn Wells of Gilligan's Island fame, where it was a much warmer place than Alaska...
Still, the resemblance
Yow! Did she catch this bear? How 'bout that crab? What's next, rail splitting? Chopping of cherry trees? Clearly, a legend in the making!
Some candidates visit Cannes...some bring the baby to the market because they're out of... all kinds of stuff, and it's good to grouse with someone else in the same boat! Who ate all the Pringles? That spouse o' mine... At least her friend clearly could make some burgers, or "loose hamburgers" in those hot dog buns...some onions, a little chili sauce...some extra moose meat for flavor...so life is good.

Despite the emptiness of the fridge, I blundered into a way to make a good pot of beef stew, so that was done, and I've been eatin' on that one for a couple of days...
Things are quiet in blog land, Camie has been very busy with small children, and some of the noble corps have moved on...but I find new blogs, have fun with those, and bring back to this one little bit of spiritual nourishment, and let it cook slowly, like my stew...
Happy Birthday Victoria! After a long disappearance, she's back, but now on Euro-holiday...
Amba, you've become a favorite in a very short time! I check in every day.
It's all good!

This young man needs your support; I could talk him up to beat the band, but, I'll let his mother do it. Go here and let Camie explain it. We at the Stuffin think the world of The Little Man and want him to exceed all our expectations! If you love Fluffy, give it up for The Little Man!

Here's Camie and friend Cher outside at a bar sharing a beer with ol' Fluffy...being Ann Arbor, this is during the "EcoFair", where they're trying to get you to buy an Electric Lada, or compost your dead relatives or something. My English friends (and Cynnie too!) could be also enjoy beer with us, but alas...

It's taken me awhile to figure out how much I have to write out of me. I simply can't blather on about things in the paper, or current events, or even about my hobbies per se. Nor do I want to just talk about me; I want you to take something for yourself, to make you happier, smarter, better, however you define it, from my writing. But it's funny to think how much the idea of that makes me happier, gives me a bit more focus.
I'll try to write more out of the depths of myself, just to make sure I'm doin' it right. Stay tuned.

1.) No Green Peppers please! Red and Yellow Peppers are fine.
2.) Size 91/2 EEEE feet. Only brand of sneakers (New Balance) will fit.
3.) Haven't spoken to either of my two sisters in many years. Have no idea where my father is buried.4.) One of the two greatest "Cat Battlers" [fighting by throwing stuffed felines at each other] in America. Camie knows the other one.
5.) Longs to go back to Carmines near Times Square in a way sometimes that is irrational just because I've always had a good time AND something interesting has happened when I've been there. Will accept invites.
6.) Has never been to Europe, due to astonishing lack of money.
7.) Has asked Nietzsche for advice in my head, and usually heeded the advice I've gotten back.
So here are the rules:
1. Link to your tagger and post these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
5. Present an image of martial discord from whatever period or situation you’d like.
I cheat a bit on rule 5, just cause it's Magna Carta day!

I was born and raised in Detroit. If you ever go there, cruse by this, the old abandoned train station. Much of Detroit has abandoned buildings, but few as grand as this 1913 Beaux Arts structure... used in the Transformers movie, and also The Island.

But it shouldn't be like that, cause we can do what ever we want! Maybe the sun and seeing more folks outdoors will charge the old batteries, and give us stuff to chat about.
I wish I could come and meet with you all out there in our little group, but, man, funds are non-existant and life is just a pain-in-the-butt struggle most times. If and when we meet for real I think we will all get a charge out of it, and much blogging will resume. I may follow Camie's lead and put up a video of meself just rambling on for no reason, which I think others will enjoy!
Friday, March 14, 2008
There was a time...when Camie and I were building financial empires...how'd that work out, CV?
This is Mama Vog back when we first started hanging out...note the Oasis love! This was before they became a pack o' drunks! CV and I even went to see one of their first shows here in NYC, which was pretty cool. I have more such pics...interested?

There's a big scandal in Detroit, my hometown, and it's like watching a car wreck in slow motion. Things at present are bad, and they ain't gettin' better. A longtime friend of mine wanted me to write about Detroit, and there's no way in hell I'm doin' that, 'cause it depresses me too much.
Someday I hope to drunk post like the Kung-Fu Master of drunk posting, Herr Dinners... When I do, I'll make it a special post just for y'all....
More goddamn snow. I am officially sick of it, and want spring to come...
Though Noah was sick, Beanie was a lot of fun the other day at the House of Fog, er, Vog....
Cynnie...you're not getting older just cuter in a more complex way...
There's no funds at the nonce, and food is down to Vog supplied eggs...so omelets it is!
Baseball season cometh soon! Hot Damn! I am looking forward to it...
Nursing my reheated coffee...ugh... maybe a fresh pot later.
I will post again, when true awakeness occurs, my peeps!

Dear employees of DisneyCoUK,
We decline your revocation, and thus insist upon return of all Lend Lease vehicles provided in the period known as "WWII", or failing that, appropriate cash value prorated and compounded since 1938. Failure to provide such compensation will result in the turn over of The United Magic Kingdom to The Third Reich Collection Agency. We will accept Scotland as initial payment.
Incorrect. Queen Elizabeth II shall resume her hand waving duties at Cinderella's Buckingham Palace, (known as "The Buck House", in proper Texan) until her 15 minute break begins, whereupon she is allowed to smoke in a location at least 50 feet from the entrance. The former "royal" known as "Prince Charles" ' name shall be changed to an unpronounceable glyph, thus heightening his "Q" rating. Former princes Harry and William shall be renamed "Charming" and "Aladdin" and assigned shifts when their outfits return from the cleaners.
The return questionnaire will be expressed in ways that employees of DisneyCoUK can understand: "Do you feel lucky? Well, punk, do you?"
This term is acceptable, as long as it is the anthem performed by The Sex Pistols.
[All subsequent DisneyCoUK employee funerals will play some variation of "Candle in the Wind," to stimulate CD sales.]
DisneyCoUK employees do not need vegetable peelers, as per your tribal tradition of boiling all foodstuffs until greyness is achieved, whereupon lard is added. Henceforth all boiling by DisneyCoUK employees is banned. Italians may be employed for pasta water boiling, and all tea shall be placed in pouches like Red Man or Skoal and chewed, like tobacco.
So as to afford the proper verisimilitude to an otherwise otherworldly DisneyCoUK dining experience, of course.
Hollywood will also be required to cast English actors as English characters. Hugh Grant fulfills this contract obligation, and the casting of non-Hugh Grant actors will dilute the Hugh Grant brand, which would be understood by Mr. Cleese if he had had the business acumen of someone who was not British Bitter.
[ Mr. Cleese is of sufficient age and sagacity himself that we would allow him, in a lesser fantasy or sci-fi epic, to be the filmic embodiment of a plastic figurine, provided with no fewer than 4 animated Dead Parrot Ghost sidekicks, voiced by Gilbert Gottfried, Courtney Love, Fran Drescher, and Henry Rollins. Resourceful American children, in playing with this life-like toy, would, invariably, stick the plastic head in the butt of the house cat, thus anticipating both critical reaction to the film itself, and a neat visual summation of the actors career. In exchange for saying no more than a dozen lines written by a Southern Californian screenwriter whose cocaine expenditures are a significant digit of the Columbian GNP, Mr. Cleese would receive more money than all British actors have received throughout all of history combined. In his contractually obligated appearance at the premiere of this epic, he would express his great interest in reprising his role as Rectal Doody-Head KenobiDooku in exchange for enough money to either buy Wales, or an amount of ladies undergarments capable of eliciting from himself 2-3 semi-erections over an 8-10 week period of masturbation. He would then go back to being British Bitter and complaining to all who will listen of his lot in life...]
Watching Andie MacDowell attempt English dialogue in “Four Weddings and a Funeral” was an experience akin to having one’s ear removed with a cheese grater. That Emma Thompson is the manliest actor working today in DisneyCoUK, is all the refutation needed to this line of argument. Further discussion may be had with the newest head of all DisneyCoUK education as pertains Vista English, one Dick van Dyke. [Kenneth Branagh's ersatz Woody Allen impression in Celebrity makes Ms. McDowell's work in "Four Weddings" look like the Platonic Form of Katherine and Audrey Hepburn.]
19. You must tell us who killed JFK. It’s been driving us mad. JFK's assassination was a staged event designed to increase revenues for the Hall of Presidents, which, again , Mr. Cleese would have understood had he installed Service Pack 1.
Yes, and I fart in your general direction sir!
