Out of the Blue

The memorial for my mom was very touching yesterday. An unexpected element of the proceedings was the presentation of a plaque to our family in appreciation of mom's role in founding the school. Somehow I was quickly nominated to accept this, leading to a terribly awkward impromptu thank you speech.

We say goodbye to little Lulu today, as Hudson the wonder dog's miniature schnauzer cousin departs after staying with us this week. I've always been more partial to bigger dogs, but I have to admit that the appeal of this little monster has grown on me... if we ever get a second dog, I would definitely now consider a smaller pooch.

I was talking 13th Step. I'm gonna pick up Mer De Noms as soon as I have money. I'm dirt poor right now and I have a bunch of CDs I want to buy.


Who's gonna play me? I think I should play me.

Are you talking about 13th Step, Bunko, or VH? If the former, have you picked up Mer De Noms yet?

I had heard of most of it and was beyond being deeply shocked by anything sexual in nature

Heh... I used to read alt.sex.wizards before Usenet went down the toilet and I don't recall that ever having been discussed there.

remember the part about the "jelly"?

Since I never saw the HBO show -- nope. I just heard about it 2nd or 3rd hand...

Mostly used in reference to one man doing it to another, in jail. I believe the first time I heard a reference to it was on HBO's jail series (ok, I'm blanking on the name).

I saw and was horrified by the same HBO prison documentary. At the time I thought I was fairly worldly - maybe I hadn't done it all, but I had heard of most of it and was beyond being deeply shocked by anything sexual in nature. Boy was I wrong. That dude was so descriptive and matter of fact about what went on there... remember the part about the "jelly"? <shudder>

One of the funniest things I've ever seen was Chris Rock's first HBO special where he pretty much said the same thing I just said. He claimed that the "Salad Toss Man" had replaced the Boogie Man in his house when trying to scare his kids into doing something.

"Brush your teeth or I'll send the Salad Toss Man to getcha!"

The energy level of the Roth shows blew away the Hagar shows. The band did seem happier with Hagar tho...

I never had the opportunity to see VH with Roth, although I wish I had, but I did see them with Hagar and really enjoyed it. I'd have to say that I've never seen anybody who seemed to have more fun and be more relaxed in front of a crowd than Sammy.

As far as the energy thing goes, some of it, later on anyway, could simply be attributed to the aging of the band. Year after year of Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n Roll can takes its toll. Eddie's had a back condition (I think) for years. Hell, he's 49 and Sammy is over 50!

Sorry for going off, but I have noticed a lot of people using tinyurl's lately in their posts.

The only reason I use them is when I fear the length of the link will cause havok to Blue's message board...

Especially with the number of malicious websites on the rise. What is behind that link could very well be the same link I got in my e-mail a few days ago to Netsky.P.

Sorry for going off, but I have noticed a lot of people using tinyurl's lately in their posts. That and I wanted to bitch about something.

Let's close down schools, so monkey boy can get paid!

edit: from the article:
Tracey Ganiatsos, a spokeswoman for the Boston Transportation Department, said the US Secret Service told the city it intends to close several streets near the hotel "for a good portion of the day," but the streets involved will not be disclosed publicly for security reasons. Special parking restrictions will also be in effect.

The president's visit unexpectedly canceled classes for 1,425 children at the Boston Renaissance Charter School, a K-8 institution on Stuart Street a block away from the hotel. The Boston Public Schools system, which provides about 30 buses to transport Renaissance students, said it could not guarantee timely pick-up of students at dismissal time, said Dudley Blodget, chief operating officer of the Renaissance School's foundation. The school also feared that the 300 parents who pick up their children would not be able to reach the school.
