Lethal slightly worse for wear clad in out of character kakis and a polo stands at the podium making furious notes on a steno pad out of a book he looks up at the commotion of your entry.
Step lively now get it and park it quickly please and you lollygaggers will get detention and today that means cleaning the grout in Impish’s Little Dragons Sandbox with tooth brushes. I’m not cross or anything mind you just pressed for study time. ‘Tis several quizzes I need to take today.
A few housekeeping type notices. I’m pleased to report that Diaman is making excellent progress and by next week should be gracing our stage in a recliner as opposed to a hospital bed.
Also being as Labor Day marks the start of Santa’s Christmas Rush. After a little horse trading (Impish is going to be spending some time in Hell relighting some of the infernal furnaces) Ginny’s transportation will from now on be handled by Satan another former New Jersey boy. So if you happen to see a classic 68 El Dorado drop top low rider with hide away headlights all done in flames you might want to give it the right of way regardless. Especially if Highway To Hell is playing on the car’s stereo!
Still no update on John Z’s recovery from his left replacement.Left what replacement? We’d sure like to know too!
OK I’ve just enough time to grab a refill and make study group so you guys are on your own. Enjoy!
I think Putin has it about right. What I would like to know is where you get one of the coffee mugs.
I almost fell off my chair when I read Putin’s quote at the end.
“Negotiating with Obama is like playing chess with a pigeon….the pigeon knocks over all the pieces, shits on the board and then struts around like it won the game.” ~Vladimir Putin
“It’s only when you see a mosquito land on your testicles
that you realize that there is always a way to solve
problems without using violence.”
Isn’t this diner cool? Wonder what the name of it is? ‘Born To Be Wild Wannabes Café’? I can hear them now ‘Get your hunger runnin…head out on the highway…looking for a café on what ever exit comes our way…’

8 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel)
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
2 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
Pinch cayenne pepper
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup lowfat buttermilk
2 large egg whites
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Position the rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Line an 8 by 8-inch baking pan with foil so it hangs over the edges by about 1-inch. Spray with cooking spray.
Cheesecake topping: In a medium bowl and using an electric mixer at medium speed, beat the cream cheese until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Beat in the sugar and the vanilla until very smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Beat in the egg until well blended. Set aside.
Brownie layer: Put the chocolate, butter, and oil in a small microwave-safe bowl and heat at 75 percent power for 30 seconds. Stir and microwave again until melted and smooth, about 30 seconds longer. (Alternatively, put the chocolate, butter, and oil in a small heatproof bowl. Bring a small saucepan filled with 1 inch or so of water to a very slow simmer; set the bowl over, not touching, the water, and stir occasionally, until melted and smooth.)
Combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, salt, and cayenne in a medium bowl.
Combine the brown sugar and granulated sugar in a large bowl. Whisk in the buttermilk, egg whites, and vanilla. Add the chocolate mixture and whisk vigorously until fully incorporated and the batter is thick and glossy. Gradually add the flour mixture and stir just until it disappears.
Reserve 1/2 cup brownie batter and set aside. Scrape the remaining brownie batter into the prepared pan. Pour the cheesecake mixture evenly over top. Drop the reserved brownie batter in large dollops over the topping. Draw the handle of a wooden spoon through the two batters to create a swirled effect.
Bake until the top is just set, 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool completely in the pan on a wire rack. Lift brownies out of the pan by the foil and peel off the foil. Spray a knife with cooking spray and cut into 2-inch squares.
A hunky redneck went to the hospital, as his wife was going to give birth.
Later, the nurse said to him, “Congratulations, your wife has had quintuplets, five big baby boys.”
The redneck said, “I’m not surprised. I have a penis the size of a chimney.”
The nurse replied, “You might want to consider getting it cleaned. They’re all black.”
Took my text books and did a fast weekend getaway with Molly. In between the rain storms I went for a walk along the beach to see what if anything of interest washed up. Came across a few of these foot prints in the sand leading to a rockier area. That boot folks is a Size 13 4E, which places the distance from back of that pant leg to the toe of the boot someplace between 14 & 15” in length. Impish, you have plain got to stop stalking me every time I go off someplace with Molly and get your own damned vacations! You’re seriously starting to make Molly mad and you remember what happened the last time you made her mad!
THIS SHOULD OFFEND AT LEAST TWO GROUPS THAT HAVE NO SENSE OF HUMOR
At the end of a tiny deserted bar in downtown Detroit sat a huge black man.
He was having a few beers, when a short, well dressed, and obviously gay man walked in and sat beside him.
After three or four beers, the gay man got the courage to say a few words to the big black man. Leaning over towards him, he whispered, “Do you want a blow job?”
At this, the massive black man leaped up with fire in his eyes, and smacked the crap out of the gay man, knocking him swiftly off his stool.
He proceeded to beat him all the way out of the bar, before leaving him bruised and battered in the parking lot, and returned to his seat.
Amazed, the bartender quickly brought over another beer to the black man, and said, “I’ve never seen you react like that.
“What did he say to you?
“I don’t know,” the black man replied. “Something about a job.”
