I think I had a little too much coffee today. This just happened, while I was helping Toney carry in the groceries:
Me: What’s this? Sushi??
Toney: The boys like it.
Me: Oh well! Little Lord Fauntleroy. Maybe they should put on their lacy pantaloons and eat it on the veranda?
Secret #2: God, it’s just sushi.
Me: Since when do you eat raw fish? What are you, a seal? Why don’t you stand in the middle of the living room, clap your hands together, and I’ll toss it into your open mouth? <loud seal noises>
Yes, I’ve turned into my dad. Without, of course, all the mechanical know-how. I think that skips a generation, while the sarcasm remains a constant.
Pass the beer nuts.
I enjoyed the extra hour this morning, thanks to Daylight Savings Time ending. I used it to add a Scruffy the Cat CD to the Big iPod, along with the two Belly albums. I also downloaded this indie gem from eMusic. Plus, I got wildly ambitious and decided to crank out this quick update. Time well-spent? Well, I guess it’s open to interpretation.
What did you do with your extra hour? Please tell us about it in the comments.
Also, what do you think about this? I love it, but don’t know if I should. What’s your opinion?
I’ll see you guys again tomorrow, with a full-sized update.
Have a great day!
Now playing in the bunker
Treat yourself to something cool at Amazon!

I think I’m turning into your dad, too. In my old age. I have to resist the urge, all the time, to tell girls in skinny jeans “You know those make your ass look fat, right? You look like a goddamn ice cream cone.”
I bite my tongue a lot.

I slept my hour away.
I loved the video. I moved to South Carolina a few years ago and this is a pretty good representative of what I deal with daily. I went to Clemson so that made me laugh.
I live in the Upstate of SC and this video is dead nuts on the dialect and often-used expressions!
Again I can say the name of an obscure programming language: Forth!
I have lived in the south for more than 1/2 my life. ‘Round here, they don’t say the word “Sugar” in full. It’s just “Sug” – pronounced with a full drawl to “Shooooog”.
The rest of it is spot on, right down’to the Duke’s mayonnaise. Don’t step up with that sweet dressing crap.
I got myself and my kids ready for church in a leisurely fashion, rather than a screaming, hurdling, spiraling maniac. It was lovely…we even had time to join your dandies on the veranda.
We missed church, again, this time because the stupid ice maker sprang a leak and I stepped in a puddle in the hallway. The carpeted hallway. I am sure I will get a call in a day or two from some concerned lady at church because we were missing again.
I slept. Sweet, sweet oblivion. Meanwhile the animals didn’t know about this clock thing, and were clamoring for their breffix at the “usual” hour.
One time my parents were “fixin to” visit, and I suggested going out for sushi. My dad replied that “we are not seals or polar bears”.
WB in OH says
Supermarket sushi, can that be any good? I’m envisioning Sam the butcher in the back of the store struggling to make a California roll.
WB in OH says
Oh man, I think my smart mouth may have landed me in the 13%.
It’s Wegmans, not Winn-Dixie.
I’ve seen the sushi in the Wegman’s around here. Never had it, but it looks plausible. Others say it’s not bad.
The Qweezy Mark says
Does it fizz when it hits your tongue, like bad pussy?
son of sam says
I loved the video.
Oooh Wegmans, fancy. Do they polish your Bentley while you purchase provisions? No wonder you got highfaluting kids 😉
I believe Jeff drives a Maserati Quattroporte.
It’s the weekend, the Mazer stays at the pied-à-terre.
I know what you mean. On the weekend, I keep my Fiat at the park-à-ride.
Under a shroud of course.
I think I might know those girls.
I adore that video! I have said every one of those things more than once, except: when I was a cheerleader, rush chair, and debutante (I’m more poor Southern than that type of Southern) and “You don’t need another boat.” I do, however, frequently say, “You don’t need another gun!” I use Duke’s Mayonnaise, too! Well, I guess I don’t hate Clemson, but I do hate Tennessee, LSU, and Auburn. Roll TIde!
I don’t hate any universities, although Penn State have made me give the stink-eye of late. I’m sure Duke’s is good, but I’ve never seen it. Since I’m a Yankee, I’ll take Hellmann’s – nothing else will do. And no, I don’t need another computer.
I should have added that they most common phrase I say, right behind “you don’t need another gun” is “You don’t need another computer.” I will concede that other universities have their good points, I guess I really hate their football teams. Duke’s is great, and so is Bama mayonnaise. We have Hellman’s, too, but I stick with Southern brands. I have lived all over the country, but I think I am home to stay, and I am as Southern as it gets.
I catch a bulegill or a bass I eat it raw on the spot fresh outa the lake. Fuck suschi.
You catch basses from the lake? Does this lake also have any tenor saxes?
The Qweezy Mark says
I caught you a delicious bass.
Bill in WV says
I have to always run mine through my Bass-o-Matic. Wow, that’s terrific bass !!!
Last night I was ready to go to bed around 11pm. I thought I would be ambitious and turn the clocks back first. Then I thought “who the hell goes to bed at 10 on a Saturday night?” Watched TV for another hour and realized I had just pissed my extra hour away.
JESUS, KAY! What sick fuck did your Essential Daily Links???
We can’t unsee these things!
Oh, the video was great. I’ve known all them girls.
Root 66 says
“Does this gun come in pink?” is the best line out of that video! I ’bout fell outta my chair!!
I spent it drinking. Also got punched due to a misunderstanding (not my fault). And I think I was asked to leave 4 seperate bars. Good times.
Day 7 – now day 8 without power. It MAY come on tomorrow (according to New York State Electric & Gas) but then we’re getting a NorEaster so the goddamn power will probably shit the bed again on Wednesday.
We have a generator but the poor thing sounds like it’s ready to die.
bless it’s heart
They changed the clocks? To what?
I find the southern female dialect sexy as hell.
jeff reaction to sushi sounds like someting pittsburg dad would say on u tube
Do you ever fart at the end of or right after you take a shower?
I don’t do it often since I shower in the morning and most of the turd fuel has escaped during the night.
But in the rare case that I do, I have to take a whole shower over again. If I don’t I feel like I’m walking around in a shit tuxedo all day.
a “shit suit” or a “turd tuxedo” would have been better.
