So - did you guys go see "Disco Inferno"?

DADvocate said...

Ugh, I saw some men in shorts.

Has Althouse posted about Liberal Chick fil drive-up douche-bag?

edutcher said...

Nice to see you guys went out for your anniversary.

Date night.

Not specifically, but the subject was raised.

Hey, we're moving from Dallas to Michigan this week.

Any of you think I need to get a couple of cardigan sweaters? I've heard it can be cold up there.

pm317 said...

wow, that first picture is stunning.

I have a stunning pic of my own in the evening sun but with my puny little camera.

Depends. About halfway up the Lower Peninsula, even in summer, you notice a drop in temperature.

I love Wisconsin but I'll never get used to seeing so many fat people everywhere.

Christopher in MA said...

I like the marquee of the Majestic. Do they still show movies there?

Mark B said...

I see Fat people everywhere I look.

Ho Hey, what do you say? I'm bacherloring it for the night!

Do I: chill with the dog and do some needed final prepping on the popup for the long camping trip to Door County?

Or do I: Go have a couple pitchers of beer at the local watering hole and shoot billards with my trusted old timer partner who should be there? We'll talk all night about how and why we're kicking everyone's ass, the Packers, Brewers, and trout fishing.

The camping detail can easily be done at any time. Humh.

Meade said...

We're fatter than Minnesotans, leaner than Michiganders, and neither fatter nor leaner than Iowans, Illinoisans, and Hoosiers.

Meade said...

Choose wisely, garaji-san. Dog and Door prep lies domestic tranquility. Watering hole lies Michigander scale obesity and lonely pooch.

purplepenquin said...

The Majestic did show movies for a few years, but it has been all live shows and dances for a while now.

Which is actually very appropriate, 'cause it started out as a vaudeville palace.

deborah said...

Meade's back; can Althouse be far behind?

3rd picture down from the top, young lady on the right,facing the guy opening the beer can - I don't think the urologist on the New York subway would have to do an "upskirt" to get his panty shot.

The urologist...and the upskirt photography

Meade
I've been with the meat since 6:30 this morning. He is in a rare state right now. Sleeping. But I think I'm going to take your advice anyway.

Man, it was the hottest day of the year today as far as I'm concerned. I did a lot of running around this morning, and walking back outside from the house at around noon felt like climbing inside a St. Bernard's mouth.

Quayle said...

BTW, happy 3rd you two.

Hope the years keep piling up.

john said...

So why in the cool evenings do the olympic v-ball women wear their bikini tops outside their T shirts?

Reminds me of Dody Goodman.

Ann and Meade - congratulations on your third year together and wishing you many many more.

You can't swing a cat without hitting a fatty in Madison. Go outside of Madison in other parts of Wisconsin and they are even fatter. And I mean like how are you still living fat. And some of them have little kids and all I can think about is something fucked that fat fuck.

You hardly ever see fattys in Boston or Cambridge-I think it because we walk everywhere. I walk to work and on my way there I cross through these amazing streets that have multi million dollar mansions-everyone of them with a Warren for Senate sign. Definitely not the po liberals, these are the very rich limo liberals.

tits.

pm317, hope you don't mind, I reduced the shadow in your Matterhorn photo while keeping the sky. You can drag and drop this if you like and I will take it down if you like.

I also made it a little more contrasty and a little less lossy, details that needn't be mentioned, so why I mention them can be probably be seen as pathology.

traditionalguy said...

Did you see Montee Ball out looking for another fight? Or was Prosser out practicing his hands on throat moves to women bumping into him?

Madison seems to be a very exciting place... like a WWF with a Lake.

Quaestor said...

Beautiful Capitol. Too bad the odor of unwashed progressive lingers here and there.

Relaxing right now with my new favorite libation (helluva flash website, btw) 3:1 with sugar.

Lem said...

A nice tune.

roesch/voltaire said...

For once I do not miss Madison as we look out over the pacific ocean, just north of Trinidad, California, in foggy but cool 58 degree weather.

deborah said...

Sounds very nice r/v...enjoy!

Chip Ahoy said...

It's funny when I look up a sign word I suspect isn't there and they spell it instead of show it, but they spell a different word , like why did you do that? Since you're spelling anyway. Did yo think we wouldn't notice that you spelled a different word? The word climate was spelled 'weather.'

I know signs for climate and for weather so why don't the deaf people at the dictionary site?

Okay so you don't think that so funny.

Forget climate. I don't want to spell weather or use my own words. 'Temperature' is a word anyone would know, an index finger sticking straight up and the other index finger pretending to be a red line going up. So it's two finger sign. Basic.

'Global' is that same finger used as the axis of a globe and the other finger is a G that rotates around the axis like a bicycle wheel. It's a medium size loop you make in front of your chest.

I shrink that to fit the size of the thermometer. Then do 'global' small rotation much faster than a large rotation, then the axis finger for the word global goes doink straight up to become the thermometer and the G for global becomes the red thermometer line. It's a very tight combination that looks like I'm sewing something tiny, not at all like a global catastrophe, although there is a wonderful word for planet that I love to use that looks like a basketball rotating as it cuts an arc, a full-armed large and magnificent sweeping movement that really does conjure the movement of a celestial orb. Not that. This is prissy and tight and dismissive. Precise like a typewriter. A squirrel-size typewriter. And it's not a canon word combination. I made it up, but everyone would recognize that instantly.

The microwave died.

Fortunately I've known enough to buy one microwave ahead now. They never fail at a good time.

Always have a spare microwave.

Now I just order another spare, always low power 700w so that they also work with the backup generator when that comes up.

Thank you so very much. I was hoping someone would give me this kind of direction to make it better. Can you elaborate a little on how you did it? what tools you used and such. Thanks.

Don't ever go to Disneyworld.

Tank said...

Made it to WI last weekend, but not Madison. Our friends took us here instead.

We all had: Bloody Marys with beer chasers [I can't explain that} and Rueben sandwiches which were REALLY good.

roesch/voltaire said...

There is no weather without temperature and A google search shows people search for places to live that have year round 60 degree weather. These words arch around each other perhaps because these signs can stand for each other?

WSilentThree said...

I like the Maxfield Parrish blue.

My middle daughter does that when she doesn't know a word when she reads. She doesn't use the wrong pronunciation or read a word that starts with the same sound or letter but is wrong, she substitutes a near synonym that has nothing to do with what she's looking at.

Blows my mind.

She obviously knows the meaning, how can she not know the word?
