Why's that? Oh, a different kind of smoker? One that only makes you hungry? Well, Johhny likes skinny girls, but he could never turn down a "fatty". Merry Christmas, Commander. Just around the corner. Having a house full Tuesday-the Missus went to Costco's to pick up the Prime Rib. Yum. Later

Been there. Done that. Rambone comes to mind. He once offered to drop me with an over hand right. That's a long arm to reach me from Texas. I, in turn, wanted to break a boot off in his big mouth. Silly stuff, but it felt good at the time. Your benevolence is duly noted. See ya later.

It's so exciting...I get all tingly where my American Express and Discover cards used to live. Luckily, the Paragon was out at Staples when I realized the old Gateway (RIP) wasn't waking up. She was able to pick up my replacement (gift) while out and I was back in business after wasting 3 hours trying a new power supply.

I was going to get her a new iPad with Retina display but she said she was fine with the old one. Now, I have to scramble since our gifting hudna fell apart by necessity.

It's the most wonderful time of the year....

Ya lost me with power supply. Is that an integral component of your PC, or an option for killing video bandits? Does this retina display account for cataracts? Leaves me out. What's that ringing in my ears, 24-7? Like somebody's running the shower. Fcuk.

I can't believe how fast the new computer is, it's like I can do nothing 5 times faster than I used to. Still trying to decide if I like Windows 8 though.

I may have blown the holiday shopping budget but her birthday is next month so I should have the cards un-maxed by then :-)

I got 6 GB but I don't swallow.

How hard can a card be if you have a computer and printer? Just save up the creativity you'd put into around 1.5 posts and let her know how much more than Uzi she means to you. Type it over a picture of a flower and print it, Dan-o.

It's all about the quality of the paper, Bucko. E-cards and Internet shit is just that. Shit. Scuze me, Commander, I'm not in dire straights where I need cheesy solutions to my self imagined shared dilemma. Do you really think I needed a condescending public message from you with Uzi as your cornerstone? I was sharing an innocent piece of personal info with no anticipation of un-sound advice. You may want to stuff that attempt at humor up that puffy cushion called your asz. Egads, you really are Officer material. pfffft

I got your roses: Try a rosenthalian flip, Commander. Merry Christmas.
A rosenthalian flip is a 540 shuv-it with a kickflip at the same time but you do a 180 body varial. AKA 540 flip sex change.

See it, now? How about your creativity time? Does that take time away from your Paragram, Paragon, Parachute or what ever you call it? Picked the wrong area to try grab some chuckles. No? I took time out from my viewing of "In plain sight". Why? You are so smart, you are actually stupid. Smart enough to get under my skin. Stupid enough to know that I won't drop it. That what you want?

Pumbaa did a drive-by last year but he has a more rewarding way to waste his time on Chicago AM radio. Maybe he and NaNa will drop in for the holidays, it would sure be nice. Try not to manifest those other a-holes though, it would nullify the Mubarak.
I hope the season treats you well and that the coming year follows a different arc. I don't know why because I don't know how but I still have hope.
Someday.
I think we hope for different things. But good for you.

Same to you, Girl. Looks like you reduced Mr. Omnipotent to "judgies". Have a good one. Lobsters and shrimp by the street light ambiance tonite. Into the inner city where the paper chip bags line the gutters. But, what the hey? The old folk have to go where the old folk live. Merry X-mas.
