It's a larff, innit?

....Yes....that ought to do it for today. I think I'm in the mood for a margarita.

It's November 4, and it's sunny, warm, beautiful. Go figure. New England, eh? We had snow last Saturday, then 70 degrees and lovely on Sunday. Today is perfect, tomorrow could be shit.

I'm thinking a margarita...yes, that'll do. Maybe some nice Tex-Mex themed dinner. Or better yet, we could go Spanish and do Tapas. Love tapas. Little bits of everything.

Now, if we could only speed up time.

Here's something good.

10,000 anti-Bush protesters in Argentina. Only one business was spray-painted on, and only one other business on the protesters' route was damaged in any way. A fruit stand. And the best quote, the guy selling the fruit says, "I only lost four bananas."

That's beautiful.

EDIT: Holy thundering Jesus Christ! The link that was there this morning, that showed a report on a relatively peaceful protest, has been replaced by an article talking about extreme violence, of course with customary asides about elderly people and children being hurt. So...the media, huh? You CANNOT fucking trust it.

I feel so used.

Fucking Hell! Does Gorilla Bananas know? Were they relatives of his? Is there a phone line he can call? Should we be having a whip round to get the Japing Ape out on the next plane to Argentina?

Quick, Andraste, to the beardmobile!

They lost four bananas, but we still have to deal with this fruity bastard for another 2 plus years.

Calling him a fruity bastard is an insult to fruit.

He IS a vegetable, though, and there's no way around it.

You were right to call in U.N.C.L.E. on that last post. It is obvious that T.H.R.U.S.H. is at play here.
I prefered Illya to Napoleon, how about you?

Hey Muff, welcome back!

Well...I never really watched the show, so I can't say. It's on my list of things to get from Netflix.

Don't do it, Andraste, they've got bloody tokillya in them.

As far as something involving Bush where only 4 bananas were lost? I do'nt believe it!

Four bananas is the least colatteral damage that bollocks has
caused for some time.

Who ARE you? What the hell is going on around here?

I agree on this post though.

Erm...anonymous posters don't get the right to too much detail.

Because I'm an old Pete Townshend fan, though, I must ask...

And I meant to put this under the Jamaica Plain post. That's the one I agree with.
I'll have a Guinness please.

Hint taken, digested, and giggled over. Miles' former fucking valet. VERY nice.

Jamaica Plain, man. Might as well be Mars, for fuck's sake.
