This One’s for Hannah

As long as I’m still online in the storm, and my eyes aren’t quite open all the way yet, I thought I’d share a little love, from Roy Zimmerman.

Meez Teaching

Me, teaching

Meez, Teaching. It’s kind of cool because it’s animated, and I thought I’d share.

You can make one of yourself at

When it promts you, if you say that LouFCD sent you, we each get 200 free coins. A lot of the stuff there is free, and you don’t have to give credit card info or anything unless you want to buy more stuff. You get 2500 coins just for signing up, by the way.

I only spent coins (which were free anyway) on the beard and hair, but there’s a bunch of different neat little things there to assist you in frittering away some time for no apparent reason.

Check it out.

Campaigning for The Tentacled One

Shock and Awe

LeftyOh forsooth. I am sure that you’d never have guessed, right?

I think the only reason I’m so far to the economic right on this graph is because of the question about taxes. The question was something along the lines of “Do you believe that raising taxes is the best way to reduce the federal deficit?”

No. I believe that a much more effective method would be to reduce the loopholes for the wealthy and large corporations and actually make them, y’know, pay some taxes.

Even better, let’s stop illegally invading other countries and spending hundreds of billions of dollars and priceless lives for the benefit of Dubya’s erection. It’s disgusting how little he and his ilk value human life, and how flippantly and carelessly he’d sacrifice good men and women on the altar of his woody in the temple of his wallet.

Try it yourself.

(I like Greg Laden’s answer best though.)

Lou Simpson FCD

Well everybody in the universe had done it, even Timmi Toler. I might as well do it, too.

Me, The Boys, And Ivan

Me, The Boys, And Ivan
So the wife calls me up while she and Kayla are at the Walmart.

“Grab James and come on!” and tells me why.

I grab the boy, we hop in the car. He’s asking what the surprise is all the way there, but I won’t tell him.

Ivan Koloff, The Russian Bear, a pro wrestler from back when I was a kid was over there signing autographs.

Here’s our poloroid of us.

I don’t think he cares much for the way Pro Wresting is these days.

He was incredibly friendly, and we yacked a bit about the old wrestlers.

I remember hating him, then loving him, back and forth as the storyline progressed.

He’s probably best known in tandem with his real life nephew, Nikita Koloff.

It reads,

To James + Dylan 1/19/07

Best Wishes my friends

Ivan Koloff JN 3:16

(Dylan is a friend of James that we happened to bump into there.)

Those were the days. Summer was forever, girls were suddenly fascinating and mysterious, the good guy always won, and Pro Wrestling was real.

My Daughter’s Observatory

JanieBelle put up a cute little blog entry about my daughter’s Observatory in her Christmas Village.

Dr. Plait reads her blog and Kate’s, and found it amusing enough to post about it.

He had to turn down her invitation to speak at the observatory, though.

Maybe next time.


(There are more pictures of her village here in another of JanieBelle’s posts)

It’s A Bit Long Winded, But…

My Peculiar Aristocratic Title is:

Get your Peculiar Aristocratic Title

Thanks to Matt from Pooflingers, and JanieBelle and Kate.

Vote For BadAstronomy!

I voted for BadAstronomy

Dr. BA needs your help to stop the invading squid horde! A vote for Dr. Phil Plait of BadAstronomy is a vote for kittens!

Well, I would have posted this anyway, but Kate has threatened to beat the crap out of me if I didn’t do it right away. I really like Kate, but she can be a bit pushy with that damned riding crop of hers.

(Ouch! Quit it!)

Anyway, Kate says that if you don’t go vote for the BA, I’m going to be subjected to unspecified torture and beating.

Please go vote for the BA! For my sake!

As Philly As Cheesesteak


Well this is dead on. I was born and raised just outside the city limits.

What American accent do you have?

Your Result: Philadelphia

Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak! If you’re not from Philadelphia, then you’re from someplace near there like south Jersey, Baltimore, or Wilmington. if you’ve ever journeyed to some far off place where people don’t know that Philly has an accent, someone may have thought you talked a little weird even though they didn’t have a clue what accent it was they heard.
