From Cruller to Fingers.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Jim @ 9:51 pm

No ground pound this morning, as I have a sore left instep (too much ground pounding?). Ergo, my blog thinking time was zip. As a result, you’ll get the direct connection between my cruller and my fingers as I sit here:

1. Right about now, I think the best gig in the world is to be a democrat party super delegate. I figure that if I were a super delegate, I could open the bidding between Barack and Hillary and end up with that house on the ocean I always wanted.

2. A word to the Chief Munuvian: I am really, really losing my patience. It’s happened a zillion times where, once having crafted a perfectly wonderful, literate, witty comment, I see it disappear to be replaced by an unreadable error message, or a message stating that comments are closed due to spammer activity.

3. I miss Acidman. The ‘sphere just ain’t the same without him.

4. I heard today on the radio that there is a pizza place in NY (Brooklyn, I think – feh!) that is charging four bucks for a slice. Four bucks? GMAFB!

5. I got lost yesterday on my way to a wake, despite using Google Maps and Mr. Tom Tom. I need a meeting. “My name is Jimbo, and I have the sense of direction of a piece of soft coal.”

6. I should not be surprised that virtually all national politicians are scum. After all, they are the same lemons who start out locally and work their way up through state politics.

7. Sharon Stone, the well-known expert on foreign policy, is a big hit in the Arab Press. Useful idiot.

8. Have you ever seen an episode of Project Runway? It is a freak show without the physical deformities. I must admit that I laughed out loud at the episode I saw. The best part is when a male designer-contestant cries when he loses. Second best is when the grey-haired Ueberflit sashays into the sewing room to tell the designers they only have five minutes left, and the designers freak out. Looked at another way, the show leaves no doubt that we are doomed.

That is all.


  1. Even though you are TOTALLY NOT WORTHY of my friendship, for all the mean things you say about where I live, when I am finally able to lug your sorry, sits on Mr. Recliner too damned much azootik in some House by the Dooshway over to Brooklyn, the first place I am taking you to is Di Fara Pizzeria, home of the fantabulous Four Dollar Slice of Excellent Farookin’ Pizza on Avenue J & East 14th Street, you will then get on your computer later that night and write a post that goes something like, “Hmmm, even though my cruller, much like my sense of direction, is a piece of soft coal, my taste buds knows a good slice a pizza when it has one, and that was the BEST damn slice of pizza I have ever had — worth every penny!”

    Hey, it’ll be my treat.

    (BTW, these are my absolute most favoritest kinds of posts that you do.)

  2. Only four bucks? It’s a bah-gain.

    The munuvians need to move to Minx… you may have noticed that my comments don’t croak like the others. That’s why. *grin*

  3. New York slices are $2.50 here and usually worth it.

    Thanks for the warning for Runway. I will be sure to miss it.

  4. Jimbo,
    I’m SO with you on #2. I’ve lost many a witty quip. I’m begged my MuNu friends to move.

    I think you can get a whole pizza in Indiana for $4.

  5. I love Project Runway. Great mindless TV and you have to love a gay designer being emotional, it’s such a show.

  6. Jim, based on your previous navigational adventures, I think you are insulting soft coal here. I mean, come on, at least soft coal knows enough to stay put when it doesn’t know which way to go!

  7. Are you gonna hate me when I tell you that I like Project Runway?
    I’d probably have to watch it first, but the perpetual trainwreck appeal sounds pretty good.

  8. I’m with you on the directionally challenged thing. My Garmin (Lee, btw) has a wicked twisted sense of humor. In fact, I keep sayin’ it’s channeling T1G. Yes…it’s THAT bad. 😉

    So when you have that meeting? Yeah, let me know and I’ll join you…….

  9. MuNu comments can be salvaged, people. Not that I’m defending them.

    When you get the bugger or spam message, just RIGHT-CLICK in the comment box. You’ll be given the option of “back”. Go back, your comment is there! copy your comment in case you get another error or total loss, and re-submit.

    Then write a post and tell MuNu they suck.

  10. MuNu gets hit with over a quarter *million* spam comments a month. They could turn off the filter, but then the blogs would be overrun with the crap. As it is, I have to clean out less than twenty a week.

    Teresa’s right. If people would move to MuNu’s Minx from Movable Type, it would solve everything.

  11. “A piece of soft coal.” HEH. Made me laugh.
    I hate the spam message on munu too. I just click ’til it takes the comment. Which it does because it knows not to mess with me when I’m in a mood.

  12. The best pizza to my recollection was from Genos on Rush Street in Chicago ….genuine Chicago Pan Pizza, as to size,if you order more then two pcs you better have brought a wagon to haul it away or a pickup truck & very tasty in a Italian homestyle way

    Most so-called pizza today is bisquick & peppers with tomato sauce on it…..Gawwwck!

  13. saw that stuff about Sharon Stone in the fish wrap. Pisses me off, I used to lust over her and now she is on my shit list too…………..

  14. Some of us do not have the time to move from munu. Some of us don’t know how to keep our blogs looking like they do to move to Minx. Some of us are attached to the way our blogs look… feels like home. Some of us are looking, however. It is just going to take time…

    This is a very funny post… 2nd only to your Original Dubya post!

  15. I would pay $40.00 for a slice of real pizza. Sorry, I am in Montana.

    We can work on that sense of direction, Jim. Too many gadgets. Concentrate on bituminous.

  16. Hairboy, WTF?? Put up a post already…who said you could have a day off?

  17. And what’s with these superdelgates? Do they have super powers? What kind of Kryptonite repels them?

  18. I miss Acidman too…

    I was just reading his site today. A bunch of posts from 2003 were on rotation…
