Out of the Blue

Happy Thanksgiving Eve! The turkeys are all hung by the chimney with care here in the BlueTower, or however you'd say that we're pretty well prepared. Most of our shopping is done, though we always manage a last minute trip to the supermarket, and most of the cleaning is done as well. My only remaining responsibilities are to make the Chex Mix and clean the bathrooms, hopefully in that order, because it will save a hand-washing. Of course I kid... I never actually wash my hands before I cook. Bon appetite!

538 gives the Skins a 30% to win. Not good, but that's also the same chance they gave Trump to win and we all know how that turned out.

I'd wager that football data is significantly more accurate than polling data. :p

My motherboard on my gaming rig has died.

I am now using a machine that runs on Vista....for basically everything.

My family is taking bets on how long I will will endure before I go buy a new motherboard..if not a new rig all together.
Do you have a copy of Win7 you can install on a new machine? If so, no reason to wait!

Chex mix is a yearly tradiation for me. I always add in Big Cheez itz for extra flavor. I'm sure you're aware, that no food is better at giving you gas! Happy Thanksgiving from a fan of Bluesnews since the Quake days.
That sounds like a well balanced snack. grin

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Here's to hoping the Redskins kick the cowgirls butts, but w/no Romo i doubt it.

The hair-loss drug is why I'm bald.

Once I saw the WHO hand cleaning method I quit washing my hands.
http://www.who.int/gpsc/clean_hands_protection/en/

The CDC does not go into enough detail. http://www.cdc.gov/features/handwashing/


A man entered a restaurant and sat at the only open table. As he sat down, he knocked the spoon off the table with his elbow. A nearby waiter reached into his shirt pocket, pulled out a clean spoon, and set it on the table. The diner was impressed. "Do all the waiters here carry spoons in their pockets?"

The waiter replied, "Yes. Ever since an Efficiency Expert visited our restaurant... He determined that 17.8% of our diners knock the spoon off the table. By carrying clean spoons with us, we save trips to the kitchen."

The diner ate his meal. As he was paying the waiter, he commented, "Forgive the intrusion, but do you know that you have a string hanging from your fly?"

The waiter replied, "Yes, we all do. Seems that the same Efficiency Expert determined that we spend too much time washing our hands after using the men's room. So, the other end of that string is tied to my penis. When I need to go, I simply pull the string, do my thing, and then return to work. Having never touched myself, there really is no need to wash my hands. Saves a lot of time."

"Wait a minute," said the diner, "how do you get your penis back in your pants?"

"Well, I don't know about the other guys, but I use the spoon."

With dictator Erdogan in charge of Turkey, I would say that turkeys should be called Freedom Birds from now on.

You can start a new diet trend; the Blue's Food diet, all the taste with none of the calories! Just one simple step, never wash your hands, especially after using the restroom... where you'll be spending a lot of, so leave a phone charger in there.
