Okat... My friends of list is almost fully fixed. I think I was friended by 184 people, and when they fixed it, it was 179. But a lot better than 6.

I was kind of supprised at how few comments the Portland pictures got, but I'm guessing I just posted WAY too many of them. Maybe I should have just posted 10 or 20 a day instead of all of them at once.

And don't forget, go check out http://boards.wartorn.org/ , It will cure you jock itch, your corns, your warts, your acne, and will get you drunk. What more could you want?

How many of you used to watch Cheers? Remember how Norm would walk in, everyone would say "NORM!", and then someone would ask him the equivilent of "How are you", and he would always have a witty reply? I haven't seen these posted in a long time, so here are some Normisms:

"Can I draw you a beer, Norm?"
"No, I know what they look like. Just pour me one."

"How about a beer, Norm?"
"Hey I'm high on life, Coach. Of course, beer is my life."

"How's a beer sound, Norm?"
"I dunno. I usually finish them before they get a word in."

"What's up, Norm?"
"Corners of my mouth, Coach."

"What's shaking, Norm?"
"All four cheeks and a couple of chins, Coach."

"Beer, Normie?"
"Uh, Coach, I dunno, I had one this week. Eh, why not, I'm still
young."

"Normie, Normie, could this be Vera?"
"With a lot of expensive surgery, maybe."

"What's up, Normie?"
"The temperature under my collar, Coach."

"What would you say to a nice beer, Normie?"
"Going down?"

"What's up Mr. Peterson?"
"The warranty on my liver."

"What's up, Norm?"
"Everything that's supposed to be."

"What's new, Normie?"
"Terrorists, Sam. They've taken over my stomach. They're demanding
beer."

"What'll it be, Normie?"
"Just the usual Coach. I'll have a froth of beer and a snorkel."

"What would you say to a beer, Normie?"
"Daddy wuvs you."

"What'd you like, Normie?"
"A reason to live. Gimme another beer."

"What will you have, Norm?"
"Well, I'm in a gambling mood, Sammy. I'll take a glass of whatever
comes out of that tap."
"Oh, looks like beer, Norm."
"Call me Mister Lucky."

"What do you say, Norm?"
"Any cheap, tawdry thing that'll get me a beer."

"What do you say to a beer, Normie?"
"Hiya, sailor. New in town?"

"Whaddya say, Norm?"
"Well, I never met a beer I didn't drink. And down it goes."

"What's your pleasure, Mr. Peterson?"
"Boxer shorts and loose shoes. But I'll settle for a beer."

"Hey Norm, how's the world been treating you?"
"Like a baby treats a diaper."

"Would you like a beer, Mr. Peterson?"
"No, I'd like a dead cat in a glass."

"How's life treating you?"
"It's not, Sammy, but you can!"

"Can I pour you a draft, Mr. Peterson?"
"A little early, isn't it Woody?"
"For a beer?"
"No, for stupid questions."

"What's the story, Mr. Peterson?"
"The Bobbsey twins go to the brewery. Let's cut to the happy ending."

"Hey, Mr. Peterson, there's a cold one waiting for you."
"I know, and if she calls, I'm not here."

"Beer, Norm?"
"Have I gotten that predictable? Good."

"What's going on, Mr. Peterson?"
"A flashing sign in my gut that says, 'Insert beer here.'"

"Hey, Mr. Peterson, Jack Frost nipping at your nose?"
"Yep, now let's get Joe Beer nipping at my liver, huh?"

"What's going on, Mr. Peterson?"
"Another layer for the winter, Wood."

"Whatcha up to Norm?"
"My ideal weight if I were eleven feet tall."

"How's it going, Mr. Peterson?"
"Poor."
"I'm sorry to hear that."
"No, I mean pour."

"How's life treating you, Norm?"
"Like it caught me sleeping with its' wife."

"Women. Can't live with 'em, pass the beer nuts."

"What's going down, Normie?"
"My butt cheeks on that bar stool."

"How's life in the fast lane?"
"Dunno, can't get on the on-ramp."

"Pour you a beer, Mr. Peterson."
"Alright, but stop me at one.... make that one-thirty."

"How's it going Mr. Peterson?"
"It's a dog eat dog world, Woody, and I'm wearing Milk-Bone underwear!"

"What's the story, Norm?"
"Boy meets beer. Boy drinks beer. Boy meets another beer."

"How about a beer, Norm?"
"That's that amber sudsy stuff, right? I've heard good things about it!"

"What's going on, Mr. Peterson?"
"The question is 'what's going in Mr. Peterson'. A beer please, Woody."

"What's up, Normie?"
"My nipples, it's freezing out there."

IIn Portland, there is a homeless community called, I think, Dignity Village. It's like the Hoovervilles of yore. Basicly a tent city of the homeless.

I'm wondering if something like this would violate their lease agreement on the land?

Five things I wish LJ had...

  1. A way to edit comments. I regularly have typos that I would like to go back and fix. Spell check, unfortunately, doesn't check for HTML typos, so I look like more of an idiot that usual in comments.
  2. A search engine built into LJ, so I can do regex searchs on a users posts. You would have a user field, a couple date range fields, and a search field, with a check box if it's regex searches. There are a number of old posts of mine I would like to revisit, but I don't want to have to physically read through the million posts I have made to find the one or two I want.
  3. An ability to go through all my old comments/posts in other communities and journals. A number of times I have written something witty as a comment to someone, and I wish I could go find those posts, but often I don't even remember who I was commenting to.
  4. The ability to have LJ randomly select a user picture. I never think about using any picture other than my current default one. I wish instead of default, we could select random.
  5. Intelligent cross posting. I think when you post, you should be able to have it post to several communities at once, and it would keep list of which ones it was posted to. Then when you look at the post, you would see a list of the communities it was posted to, but you would only see it once, even if you are a member of several of those communities. Why? Join a few photography communities and when you see the same post 20 times because the person is posting the same image to every photography community they are a member of, then it will make sense to you.

For some reason mplayer refuses to play the sound on this video, so I can't tell how good it is. But Pink Bunny assures me it's awesome, so give it a viewing, and laugh at me for having a shitty quicktime codec. ;)

Bush's secret agenda?

I've been bothered by the idea that no one could make it to be President and be as stupid as he seems. But then I figured it out. He is using a form of reverse psychology on us. One of the major ideas of the Republican platform is smaller federal government. Bush has been doing the opposite, and has built the government up in the name of fighting terrorism, and at the same time destroying the economy and civil liberties. What will the end result of this be? There will be a backlash and people will run from his style of government and strip power from the federal government to keep this from happening again. Bush is a genius! He's playing all of us like a fiddle. His goal, in the long run, is to get the smaller/weaker federal government that his party wants.

Okay, maybe I had too much caffeine during lunch...

I just finished a tin of Altoids. There is all this left over dust at the bottom. I dare you to snort it. Actually, I double dog dare you.
