Jim Miller

Tom Collins - I'll be watching the game, but I am that contradiction in terms, a mild fan.

(I have been trying to think of a better phrase, or word, to describe someone like me, who hopes that the home team wins, but won't riot if they do, and won't be teribly depressed it they don't. So far, I haven't come up with a phrase I like.)

For what it's worth, my prediiction is Broncos,, 34-23

I steal everything.

Iggy, that was from Boris at the end of the '07 thread that narciso linked on the last thread.

maryrose, it's good to be skeptical in these things when there is so much baggage on all sides. But Dylan has apparently been telling the same story since she was 7, and there were witnesses to what was at the very least extremely odd and inappropriate behavior. And it seems perfectly plausible that the prospect of this award would bring out her anger.

Mia seems like the sort drawn to men who mistreat her, and in awe and fear of them, so she couldn't bring herself to press charges. But you're right that we can't be certain, and that's mainly Mia's responsibility.

sbwaters

Thumbs down on Seinfeld.

Not quite sure how to say it, but Seinfeld made fun of the wrong things. He brought the trivial to the attention of the audience, leaving unexamined behavior that should be laughed at.

Thomas Collins

Well, Jim Miller, that depends. You could be classified as a football aficionado if you appreciate the quality of the skill and mayhem without having a meltdown if your team doesn't win. In any event, I enjoyed your Richard Sherman posts on your blog. The cartoon is hilarious.

Not that I don't enjoy your other blog posts, but because we're talking football here, I figure I'd mention the Sherman ones.

daddy

On this side of the pond nobody was as creepy with young kids as Michael Jackson.

On that side, Jimmy Savile of BBC fame.

maryrose

Happy Birthday Hit!
I hope Seattle wins because Peyton already has a Super Bowl ring.However I hope Manning sets new records in his gameplay today. I do like his father Archie. I usually pull for the underdog.

jimmyk

I have been trying to think of a better phrase, or word

Civilized? Rational? Sane? Balanced?

cindyk

Happy Happy Hit!! Great Pieces, Clarice! Go Broncos....

maryrose

jimmyk:
Dylan telling that story her whole life means she primarily sees herself as a victim. That is not a healthy way to go through life. If she feels so strongly ,why not confront Allen and settle it privately ? All this does is draw attention to her and her dysfunctional family.Everyone has some sort of dysfunction in their life. Advertising it does not help.Trying to diminish another person's accomplishments only highlights the lack of your own.I suppose Mia thought she should get the award.Without allen her legacy would have been one season of Peyton Place and a fling with Sinatra.

Danube on iPad

Whatever it is that the incoherent IP2P is attempting to say, no one else in the world is saying it.

I repeat: why do you suppose that is?

Mickey Spillane

It was a desk: An ordinary looking desk of gray steel and Formica typical of those in Washington, DC. It was the property of the General Services Administration. It said so on a small metal tag riveted to it’s side panel. The desk was located in a 2nd floor office in an annex of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building on 17th St. N.W. just south of Pennsylvania Avenue and adjacent to the White House. The office had a window that looked directly onto 17th Avenue. There, a stranger standing at the window, looked out and saw a Sabrett hot dog trolley on the sidewalk doing a brisk lunch-time business. The stranger could also see traffic, lots of traffic driving south toward E Street and the Corcoran Art Gallery. He would have to go sometime. He loved art especially those vivid paintings of Mia Feuer who was currently showing.

But it was the desk that the stranger was interested in, not art. This desk, as non-descript and ubiquitous that it was, held a special secret. In the top right hand drawer there was something more than pencils, a protractor, some chewing gum and an assortment of paperclips. That important something was a piece of paper folded in quarters, but unfolded and refolded many times. It contained a secret so important that its publication and revelation would set the world on fire with indignation, fury and loathing.

The stranger wore an old fedora that had seen many miles and many years of searching for the truth. His wrinkled gray pants were held up by a fraying set of bracers. His tie was loose around the neck revealing a stained inside collar of old sweat. When he walked it was more a shuffle on waffle soled Thom McAns he had owned for years. Even though it was the typical swampy summer day, his coat was ratty brown wool with tattered sleeves and missing buttons. This was how Ernie Souchack dressed every day.

Now he sat down on the creaky wooden swivel chair and put his fat, grimy paws of hands on the desk surface. The desk was clean of papers. Nothing but a large desk date pad on it. Ernie sighed as he contemplated opening the drawer and retrieving the paper. He had heard of its existence after 6 years of contemplative investigation and undaunted digging. It’s what the great journalists do to fulfill their compulsions. Ernie’s was to prove a lie and hoax. By opening this drawer he would fulfill those aspirations and avocational interests.

Nervously, Ernie opened the drawer but before he picked up the piece of paper he pulled out a toothpick from his front shirt pocket and put it in his mouth. This was common practice for Ernie when he was nervous. As he began to run the toothpick back in forth in his pulpy mouth he reached for the paper. He held it in a form of reverence since he knew that this was his Holy Grail, his proof and vindication. This is where all he had been smeared, vandalized, slandered and libeled would all come to a screeching, outcry of an end.

As he opened the paper, one crease at a time he closed his eyes and waited for the revelation to appear like a spirit as in some form of truth. This would be Ernie’s Lourdes or Fatima or Guadalupe. Opening his eyes, Ernie was shocked to find only one name on the piece of paper not the hundreds he had been expecting. Above the name was a header in bold type, underlined that read: Who Told Novak and under it the name of “Richard Armitage”.

When the ambulance first sounded its siren as they were transporting him to St. Elizabeth, he awoke to find a kindly female paramedic monitoring his vitals. He was unbelieving he was alive since the shock had coursed through his system and his collapse off the chair forced him out the 2nd floor window on to the sidewalk. A passerby rushed to him and another called 911. Now Ernie looked into the eyes of the paramedic in a near catonic state and licking his lips shouted, in deathly fear, the word, Claaaaaaaaaaaaaaariiiiiiiiiice!

maryrose

Jim:
Normal, the word you are looking for is normal...

Thomas Collins

OK, Ignatz, we have your prediction for the guy named after a former pro wrestler and a planet. What about for the group named after a vegetable?

Truthbetold

Danube

Clarice just added the FBI to her list!

Jeff Dobbs

bori:
John Elway out himself,

Elway endorsed Mitt in 2012. CO was one of 15 states where turnout increased in 2012 vs 2008. Only VA and NC had a greater increase in votes. Obama still carried the state.

I once witnessed Elway in a restaurant pee and exit the bathroom without washing his hands.

Janet - the districts lie fallow, while the Capitol gorges itself

I find myself thinking that lots of the insanity I read about is like that Seinfeld episode.
This link MM linked on the other thread was essentially "The Human Fund" episode - http://www.nationaljournal.com/politics/hillary-clinton-richard-branson-and-the-25-year-old-wunderkind-dems-fell-for-20140201

The Onion's video, The Money Hole & Seinfeld episodes....it is kinda sad that those things ring so true.

Happy Birthday, Hit!

He committed to three candidates, did some polling which even the Kos people found suspicious, somewhat like the Research 2000 outfit, turns out
he didn't graduate from Williams, shades of the

Mickey Spillane for the win!

I'd add "Rosemary's Baby" to that, though it's been a long time since I've seen it.

daddy

Just thought I'd mention how unusual it is for almost every post on a JOM thread to actually be on topic. Weird, no?

Frau Kuckucksuhr

Happy birthday, hit. May your driveway always be there for you. We are!

(A) nuther Bub

I once witnessed Elway in a restaurant pee and exit the bathroom without washing his hands.

That's because a man with self esteem washes his hands before he pees, or so I've been told.

Happy Birthday, H&R

Happy Birthday O keeper of the JOM Birthday Calendar. Clarice puts Iggy right up there with Sultan Knish. Well done Clarice, and well deserved Iggy.

Apparently, Allen kept up a decent relationship with one of his former long-time live in girlfriends, Dianne Keaton. About 10 years ago, I was out with a party of conventioneers dining at the old Russian Tea Room near the Plaza. In walks Allen, Keaton, and a number of younger kids. They sat a few tables down from us, and seemed to be genuinely enjoying themselves in an unobtrusive way. According to the wiki entry, they "remain friends".

DrJ

That's because a man with self esteem washes his hands before he pees, or so I've been told.

Chemists must have self esteem then. The old joke is that chemists wash their hands before urinating and biologists wash theirs after.

If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the precipitate!

OK, enough with the lame scientific rivalry jokes.

JiB (On the 6th Ring of Typhus Hell)

(A) nuther Bob,

Actually, its people who work in the nuke business who always wash their hands before they pee:)

1st law of health-physics.

I get credit for everything, now.

Well, Frau, that one was probably the SoyeR.

DrJ

Following on JiB's comment, one time I was weeding in the yard, and nature called. I washed my hands afterwards. It turned out that I had also removed a bunch of Poison Oak in addition to the weeds.

It was a very unpleasant experience until I got some steroids.

Sue

Hey Mickey you're so fine, you blowy mind heyMickey....

Happy birthday Hit!

Seahawks by 3.

Sue

😳 Blowy? Blow my mind...

rich@gmu

Iggy-

lol. I should send Brooksie Chapter 8 of The Prince.

Sue

Take a bow anyway Kim. You don't get enough accolades for coming up with all those names that make a statement.

Selective blindness.

Heh, Elway reads defenses on the field, not the offenses on the bathroom wall.

daddy

Where's PETA when you need 'em?

rich@gmu

Sue's spoken ... goin' with Denver. Are emoticons a new feature here at Typepad?

rich@gmu

Chucky must be part of the 1%.

Sue

For Rich. 👎😝🏈

anonamom

Jim, he and Keaton definitely "remain friends"--she picked up his lifetime achievemnet award or whatever it was from the Hollywood Foreign Press at the Golden Globes two weeks ago, and gave a lengthy tribute to him while doing so.

maryrose

Seattle by a field goal. No one will sack Peyton. If they do I am protesting the game.
Jim Rhoads: I wish I could have been a fly on the wall that evening. Keaton's tribute to Woody at the Golden Globes was heartfelt.Their on screen chemistry was epic. You can tell they are genuine friends,though both are a bit quirky.True artists.

Miss Marple

daddy,

We now know that the Groundhog has more sense than most New York voters.

Sue:
LOL! I loved that thumbs down and grinch face.

LOL Miss M!

Happy Birthday Hit-san!

MM: So true!

Jane-Rebel Alliance1

So far O'Reilly is doing a pretty good job, Obama looks like a lying fool, and I can't stand either of them.

Why wasn't Sebillus fired?

Was saying you can keep your health care your biggest mistake?

Did Panetta tell you it was a terrorist attack? Did he use the word "terrorist".

Obama is dancing like a 12 year old.

You got me Sue. Thought that when you cheered for a team they would lose?

I am going to figure out that secret too!!!

hard to top ernie's tale

"She came into my office with two loaded 44's. She also had a gun." Another Spillane classic.

Sue

Jane-Rebel Alliance1

Douglas Schulman came to the WH 157 times, more than any other IRS guy, why? Obama has no recall of seeing him. It was about the rollout.

He also asked "when did you know about the glitches?" We all knew there would be glitches.

Obama blaming IRS on Fox, "it was all incompetence, and there was no corruption. Not even a smidgeon of corruption".

Why do you think it is necessary to fundamentally transform a nation that has afforded you so much success?

Blah blah blah blah blah.

I think Obama came across very badly, but I'm biased.

MarkO

To paraphrase Boston Legal, Elway keeps a clean penis.

Jeff Dobbs

DrJ:

Oh, yeah. Been there and done that. I grew up not being allergic at all to the poison ivy around Dallas. I would roll around in the stuff. The poison oak here is such that if I get within 20 feet of it I'm breaking out all over.

The not washing before peeing coincided with one of our trips to Idaho in the summer of 2007. A flight in that condition was rather uncomfortable.

Sue

Only when I have an emotional interest in the outcome. However, I despise Peyton Manning so consider that when determining whether I'm emotionally vested with a team.

Danube on iPad

Happy birthday, hit. Maybe Elway didn't pee on his hands.

Wonderful, Clarice. Very intriguing insight;

"Speaking of God, it almost passed unnoticed, but at the moment it appears that Vladimir Putin is a better and stauncher defender of Western Civilization, and its Judeo-Christian roots, than any Western leader of whom I am aware."

OT

For those paying attention, the main areas in Alaska that have been proposed for energy exploration and drilling the last 10 years are these: Cook Inlet, The Beaufort Sea, and the Chukchi Sea.

This story about NOAA's study of new guidelines to prevent aquatic noise pollution tells us this:

Areas in Alaska that will be affected by the new guidelines include the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas in the Arctic as well as several areas within Cook Inlet. According to both Smith and Scholik-Schlomer, Alaska is home to many different man-made noise sources that can negatively affect marine mammals. The search for gas and oil pockets underneath the ocean floor sometimes involves intentionally generating massive sound waves and pushing them into the seabeds and measuring the rate at which the sounds reverberate back. According to Smith, this use of sound in oil and gas exploration can be quite loud.

If any of you guys are invested in energy companies trying to make a buck in Alaska from drilling, I would advise you to sell quick. We are closed for business through at least November 2016.

Woody the pervert? No idea -- although marrying Mia's adopted daughter raises big flags. For me, the real scoundrels here are the Hollywood types giving a man such as Woody awards. These ar the same types who turned their backs on Elia Kazan when he was given a lifetime Oscar, for having he temerity for telling the truth about card carriers in the 1950s.

rich@gmu

now you are taunting like Richard Sherman...

(and I'm like the Top Men in the GOP still talking while losing)

Somebody help me out here: what would constitute an "opportunity agenda?" What specific tasks might one undertake in furtherance of it? Could you give us a two-page example of an Opportunity Agenda?

Jeff Dobbs

I want to thank everyone again for the birthday wishes. In code that perhaps only Sue will know without google, I turned Robert Newhouse today.

daddy

but at the moment it appears that Vladimir Putin is a better and stauncher defender of Western Civilization, and its Judeo-Christian roots, than any Western leader of whom I am aware."

Subconsciously I've been thinking that as well. Nice to see it in print. And I would definitely trade our Boob in Chief for Netanyahu in a heartbeat.

DrJ

hit,

My "incident" became apparent when I was cross-country in Hoboken NJ, of all places, visiting a client. It was not a pleasant trip.

Cortical steroids can be wonderful.

daddy

Shoot. All I get from Sue's posts are small empty squares with no picture. Is that happening to anyone else?

rich@gmu

&2618;

can't believe the taunting...

DrJ

daddy, it is the same for me. Rats!

Sue

I know, I know. Want me to tell?

rich@gmu

26C4;

yeah, you are going to have to tell me.

Sue

Sorry. If everyone can't see them ill quit.

Maybe Elway is like my grandson. "I didn't touch it".

Sue

I don't have a secret Rich. They are part of my iPhone.

I'm taking Seattle to win, and the Under. That defense will stifle Peyton.

(A) nuther Bub

I hope you've already got a vodka or two under your belt, Jane. It takes great courage to watch that interview. I've often pondered which would be more awful: having to ride a greyhound bus cross-country with Obama as your seatmate, or O'Reilly. As much as I loathe Obama, I honestly think O'Reilly is the bigger blowhard. Would be a hard call though, wouldn't it?

rich@gmu

does this work...😎

please, please, please...

MarkO

I can see them, but I wish I couldn't.

Emoticans can kill.

rich@gmu

ha.

daddy, DrJ

they are Unicode character set. I couldn't figure out how to get them to display in html. it would depend on your browser encoding whether they can display or not.

daddy

For me, the real scoundrels here are the Hollywood types giving a man such as Woody awards.

Just to be a spoil sport, here is President Ford giving the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Will and Ariel Durant:

As i recall, the 27 year old Durant was her schoolteacher when she was 12, and at 13 she supposedly roller skated to their wedding.

FWIW I really enjoyed what I've read from them, particularly "Our Oriental Heritage".

rich@gmu

sorry MarkO.

Jane-Rebel Alliance1

O'Reilly is getting decimated on Twitter because he got no answers. I dunno, did anyone expect that?

AB - they are both gigantic narcissists and like you, I can't stand either of them. It lasted all of about 4 minutes so I lived thru it.

rich@gmu

not sure how much of the table is included...

does that work?

sorry MarkO, just stunned that Sue would start taunting me.

I think I've got Sue's little box symbols figured out.

So in Babylonian Cuneiform you're telling us that Man-Ox (Peyton) from the Mountains (Denver) under The Sun (today) will carve up his enemies like Fish (The Seahawks) if their is a God/Heaven (God in Heaven).

Here's Hamurabi

lol. daddy gets the last word.

Miss Marple

Well, I am going to the slackers' mass at church this evening, as I couldn't get my act together to go this morning.

Bonus: small crowd as most will be at Super Bowl parties. I bet the new priest from India drew the 6PM mass. That is good because he is serious about his faith. Last week he was at the morning mass and went on about the reality of Satan, which I am sure miffed the cafeteria Catholics there. HA!

daddy

Quick question. Momma sez I have to take the dogs out for an hour and a half during the game. Would you guys suggest I watch the first half then walk, or go now and catch the second half? Damn Momma dogs.
