a tornado in NCal today? wtf?

near modesto... Tanner- you ok? modesto is pretty close to bakersfield. in a manner of speaking.

Tanner is closer to replacing the lead singer of the Pixies than he is to Modesto.

manner of speaking.

like- they both are happening hotspots in the central valley.

gateway to yosemite

Its no Stockton.

I went there a couple of times when I lived in bethel island. It was the nearest OTB and I've always had a fondness for the ponies. But it was the worst CA city I ever experienced.

Merced, Porterville, El Centro, Hemet...all worse.

Leaving out places that are just plain awful and dangerous, like Inglewood, Carson and pretty much anywhere else the Raiders want to relocate to.

Two things I learned on Facebook today that trouble me more than it should:

1. People have already purchased Xmas trees and are decorating. It's Nov. 16th people...get a grip.

2. The Dixie Chicks are getting back together. There are people who still hate them and will boycott their show. Uh, they were right. Bush's decision to invade Iraq has proven beyond disastrous. Quesedilla?

1. Those people can eat my hairy ###.

2. Their music sucks balls.

2.1. Making a political statement like that was stupid.

2.2 I would still love to wrong hole the short, chubby Dixie girl.

I enjoy the Dixie Chicks music. Not all songs, but they scratch me where I itch. Musical acts say political statements all the time...I don't see a giant boycott over U2 who mixed politics with music for decades. The Dixie Chicks were ####### right, too. GW's war was a horrendous mistake. It helped fuel ISIS. Nothing good came out of it.

Big difference though. U2 is an Irish band with a rather diverse group of fans. Dixie Chicks are an American country act. Country fans aren't exactly known for their liberal slant on things. The Dixie Chicks bit the hand that fed them.

What kind of a grown-up eats pancakes? This kind....

An argument over the meaning of all-you-can-eat has led to assault charges for a woman in suburban Chicago.
Police in Oak Lawn, Illinois, said 27-year-old Natasha West flipped out at a Denny's restaurant after the waitress told her she couldn't share her $4 all-you-can-eat flapjacks with the other people at the table, according to The Smoking Gun.

Police said West became "irate" and started swearing and swinging her fists at the server, according to NBC Chicago.
None of the blows landed on the waitress, according to police, but West and her party allegedly then left the restaurant without paying, only to stop to kick a door several times while on her way out, according to the Chicago Tribune.

God I hate people. "$4 all you can eat pancakes?!! I'M ENDING WORLD HUNGER!!!!!"

I saw a decorated Christmas tree in somebody's window last week. Considered throwing a Molotov cocktail through it.

It isn't truly Christmas though until the local bakery puts up their huge "Happy Birthday Jesus!" banner.

I did buy tickets for this though since I know it's the last year Cal would even entertain the option of going and Dyl will be let in on the secret after this year probably.

From what I understand from people that have taken the ride in the past you get to see a lot of guys huddled around barrel fires and pissing out in the open with no shame. Should be pretty cool.

but that might work... right?

in HS, we'd go to Denny's or HoJo's late night. I remember my best friend in a drunken screaming match (to be fair, the waitress was calmly talking, my friend was screaming) because he wanted a refill on his bowl of chili. waitress couldn't get him to understand that a bowl of chili isn't a cup of coffee, in spite of the vessels being slightly similar, which was the point he was going to hang onto until the manager showed up and escorted us out. I was too busy laughing to help either way.

Cal has been reading a lot lately and just got done with Shane. I liked it when I was his age particularly since my Grandfather gave me the book. I told him next on the list was Adventures of Tom Sawyer & Huckleberry Finn. He started it a couple of years ago but it was a little over his head and I couldn't quite get him to understand the generous use of the N word. He said he would have to check at school today to see if it was on the preferred reading list. I'm really curious as if it will be on there or not. OPM, what say you?

Just explain to him that all of the characters are rappers and they can say the N word if they want.

My wife is beyond excited about this Dixie Chicks thing. I don't know how much I'm going to pay for tickets, but I'm sure it will be the most expensive thing we can find.

Saw two things this morning that made me perk up on my commute in.

1. A vanity plate that read PCAKES. I efforted hard to get around traffic to get a clear shot of the driver, thinking it would be some obese heifer, but alas, it was just some sorry sack who looked like Paul Finebaum.

2. A cleaning service car advertising maid services. On the passenger side door it read - "Everything is brighter after Angel Dusts". :mellow:

I think you're dream girl is doing just fine....

Singer/songwriter/member of the country music group The Dixie Chicks Natalie Maines has a net worth of $40 million. In addition to her net worth, she's accumulated millions of fans while remaining unafraid to speak her mind on matters regarding politics, even in the insular and often oppressive world of country music. For example, in 2003, shortly after the United States invasion of Iraq, Maines had this to say during a concert in London: "Just so you know, we're on the good side with y'all. We do not want this war, this violence, and we're ashamed that the President of the United States is from Texas." This statement, for whatever reason, was considered highly inflammatory and led to many boycotts of The Dixie Chicks on the part of a largely conservative country music audience. The Dixie Chicks persevered, however, continuing to release music and tour thanks to a devoted audience. The controversy continues to hound them, however, and they've never really captured the success that they enjoyed prior to the incident. There's even been a documentary about the controversy, appropriately titled Shut Up and Sing. Whatever comes next for Natalie Maines, it's a safe bet that she'll continue to be an outspoken crusader for justice, no matter the consequences.

Generally speaking, if you say somebody bit the hand that fed them, you're implying that the source of revenue is being negatively impacted. My counter is that her net worth implies she's been eating just fine, or something.

I get your point, though. Maybe if she bit her tongue and said nothing, her net worth would be $400 Million.

Your va9ina?

Yes, Tanner. My musical taste buds are satiated in my wagina when Wide Open Spaces comes on over the airwaves.

Is that a Dixie Chicks song?

No, it's my nickname for your mom.

So I am presenting tonight to a USF Grad School class with 2 other people tonight. One cancelled so I have to fill their time as well as mine. This feels a lot like Seinfeld being bumped from career day and then getting an assembly. "Hey kids, what's the deal with homework?"

Ask each of them for a 5 minute dissertation on why a hot dog is not a sandwich

One of my employees (report of a report) is one of those people who repeats the last word of any sentence you say.

Example?

"I want you to go and do that thing"

before I am done saying thing is completed, he says, "thing"

"Make sure you talk to the right guys first"

"first"

"And I need you to do it by Thursday"

"Thursday"
