"Pretty cranky this morning, it seems."

Says commenter Richard Dolan, noting some things I've said today:
"Please don't stumble embarrassingly over yourself ...." She knows you can't help yourself, and wants to enjoy the spectacle.

"pissily political but you might want to read it" -- if you're a jerk, that is.

"nitwits" in twitterville, following/followed by Rover and thinking that's cool.

WSJ is just playing "teaser" behind the wall, and teasers are lowlifes who get a thrill out of proving that you can't get and don't deserve no satisfaction.

The lady's face is "80 years out of date." Gross lookism in/about the face, from a supposed feminist.

"bitch about the accuracy of the journalism of the NYT" -- bitch, bitch, bitch. It's today's theme.
But I'm not in a bad mood in real life. It's a beautiful, sunny morning in pre-Spring Madison, Wisconsin. I guess it's time to shut the laptop and open the front door.

Your dog will remind you when it's time for a play break.

This happens good weather or bad.

Now here's a tale of an uncooperative teen who has a reason to be cranky:

Teen shoots his own testicles
Times-Herald staff report

A Vallejo teenager allegedly shot himself in the testicles Thursday afternoon, police said.

Police said the 17-year-old, whose name is being withheld because he's a minor, walked into Kaiser Permanente Vallejo Medical Center at about 5:45 p.m. with a gunshot wound.

The gun is still outstanding, police said, and the teen has not been cooperative.

Go ahead, be a grouch.

Don't deny it.

Don't try to sugarcoat it with little writies about how nice the fucking weather is.

...

Did you see this, Althouse?

John Kerry says that we've all got to figure out whether we are for America (and thereby support the majority proposals) or against it.

If you are a grouchy bitch, you'll probably have no trouble telling Kerry to go fuck himself. I would.

Bitchy = complicated and vise versa.

Testicles? Did someone mention testicles?

Very brief joke:

A 3-year-old boy examined his testicles while taking a bath...

'Mom', he asked, 'Are these my brains?'

'Not yet,' she replied.

Give the girl a break. She hasn't split a cup of coffee and a bagel yet!

Youse guys are so sensitive.

Hello Trooper.

Well now, who's fulfilling the role of the Queen of Hearts today?
And, who's the Mad Hatter? Anyone?

There's a chance we'll have spring this year, so please open the front door!

Trooper York said...

Hey Lem. All of these cranky commenters and bloggers should remember what our great freind Charo has to teach us!

Lem said...

Poor governor Paterson cannot take a toilet break w/o being asked if that means he's resigning.

Trooper York said...

That's because his aide that used to hold it straight for him to hit the pisspot is in a lot of trouble.

Strangely enough the guy's name is Johnson.

It's funny how things work out.

This Thai love song will brighten your mood.

Trooper York said...

RH you freak me out man.

former law student said...

Trooper -- Let's be frank for a minute or two.

Trooper York said...

Good idea fls! I think I have to put on my shark skin suit and take the wife to the Copa!

Drink up all you happy people!

Some weeks all we can do is to wait for the weekend. This might be one time when all we should do is pray that next week arrives! It must be time for a Spanish dinner!

Cranky?

WTF?

She's married, blonde, hot, has tenure, is getting some on a regular basis, travels well, has a husband who photographs her and is suitably discrete.

What's to be cranky about?

I don't know. I'd go a different route to combat crankiness...
