    She’s dancing in the video next to 50 Cent

    Random cuteness I don’t even have a picture cute enough to be submitted to the Pioneer Women photography contest, but since I don’t have a lot of content today either, enjoy the ones that were submitted.  Some are definitely professional, but it’s an amazing grouping of stuff you’ve never seen before.  Good on you PW! Whining I already know on the second to the last day of the month that I will not have had a day off this month.  I think the last day off was the 23rd or 24th of January.  It was a wine event.  Expect to find me in the witness protection program one day this…

    We’re not dumb and we’re not blind

    I got another database mess over on my business site so today is short, sweet and from the mailbag. Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution: “Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States”. Because if they had to pay what I do for health insurance they would have passed that bitch yesterday. And when it doubt, go with a dog picture.

    You know I got these burning heels to use

    It’s about time I talked about some wine.  One of the tasks on my list has been to move and catalog the Wine Dog Cellar.  I finally got that mostly done yesterday.  Discovery -not a lot of depth to my cellar, but a ton of Caberney Sauvignon.  And a bunch of stuff I should probably drink.  Like the 1994 Andeol Salavert Cotes du Rhone Villages Rochegude, whose time may have passed.  There are 165 bottles in the total Wine Dog Cellar, give or take a couple.  The ones in the cases next to the wine refrigerator have not be cataloged, but here’s what I got so far.  But we all…

    The girl with kaleidoscope eyes

    Miss me? I don’t know who the jackass was who decided that WordPress couldn’t run on MySQL 4.0 any more was.  Or who the jackass was at my host provider who thought that their halfassed instructions and barely English speaking tech line were a good business decision.  I can’t complain that tech is not in this country because my host provider is British.  Well, you know where that puts the tech department, in the former colony. It took six calls to tech to get everything worked out.  On the fifth call the guy called me sir the entire time in spite of me saying “It’s Ma’am” every time he did…

    In your head, in your head they are fighting

    I lay yesterday’s tragic event in Austin right at the door step of Glenn Beck.  Yep.  I blame him.  He tried to blame Communism and liberals and everything else yesterday, but he is the one advocating fighting our government and he is the one who refuses to take responsibility for his actions.  He bears responsibility.  He could have condemned it universally yesterday and he didn’t.  He has created an environment where something like this is ok.  Throughout the internet yesterday the teabaggers were calling the nutbag pilot brave and a hero.  No he wasn’t.  Just because you’re white and commit an act of terrorism doesn’t make you brave or a…

    GIVE ME THAT BABY YOU WARTHOG FROM HELL!

    I think I put the full service into full service realtor yesterday.  I have a house that will be coming on the market in about three weeks.  The couple are going through a divorce and it’s not a pretty one.  I call it The War of the Roses.  I’ve been friends with the wife for 25 years.  They’ve been married for seven.  It’s ugly.  The sad part is they’re both nice people that should have never married each other.  And of course there’s a child.  The cutest little boy in the world. Yesterday they had to go to court.  She’s been spinning in circles, but because I will represent them…

    But the place I go is the Kaiser Bowl

    For years I’ve wanted to go to the Mavericks Surf Contest.  For years I’ve had a real job.  I don’t remember when they rode last year, but this year I was looking forward to it and figured since I’m a Realtor, I should be able to sneak off and watch it.  Well, not so much, although it was totally worth missing it yesterday.  There’s a new listing agreement sitting in my briefcase waiting to be uploaded on Tuesday.  While I missed Mavericks this year I was able to watch some of it on Ustream.  That was very cool.  No commercials, streaming to my computer.  Naturally there was a social media…

    Wash me clean, in amazing grace

    I know I shouldn’t be complaining about the rain.  Driving has been banned in Baltimore due to the snow.  They’ve had 72 inches of snow this year.  The Federal Government has been closed for four days.  I don’t know that is a bad thing.  They really need to quit screwing around with politics and solve some problems.  Like health care.  The bill sucks but the Republican solution of doing nothing sucks more.  But that’s not today’s subject.  It’s the weather. As a Californian, I’m ok that it’s another State getting their ass kicked by the weather for a change.  After two terrible fire seasons and this years torrential rains, sorry…

    Luck is the lady that he loves the best

    If I could choose an event to occur and it would just happen, I would like to see a Meghan McCain/Sarah Palin Smackdown.  Want to know who’s really mavericky?  Meghan McCain, that’s who.  The old man threw some smart pups.  And Sarah Palin wouldn’t know satire if it came through on the side of a freight train every afternoon at 2:14. I can barely watch that woman without wanting to climb through the television and beat the holy shit out of her.  It’s not so much that I disagree with her idealogically, it’s that she’s stupid.  Straight up stupid.  Uneducated and ignorant.  Stupid.  Now for a woman I disagree with…

    Good morning America how are you?

    The only thing that would have made that football game better would be if Indiannapolis kicked a field goal and the final was 31-20.  Then I would have won $400.  I was screaming for that field goal, they never took it.  Congratulations to the Saints and more importantly to the City of New Orleans, even the State of Louisiana.  I wish this had happened the same year that Katrina beat up your town, but it’s all good today.  Crazy ballsy calls from Sean Payton.  The reverse?  Don’t go outside on the Colts, fail.  Fourth and not much?  Yeah, that’s what you got.  But the onside kick and the two point…
