merry freaking christmas

Shamelessly stolen from this post on Tam's Blog!

Well I had been looking for tires for a recent (less than a decade old) model of GM Buick.  The tires off my old merc sable will serve.  Now I just gotta get them mounted, and balanced for a small amount of personal indignity!

I also have to deal with the tires on my 1985 Dodge Ram 250.  They are 9.50rX16.5LT  the only trouble is that 16.5 measurement.  A heavy boat-trailer sales outfit advertised the tire, but on calling them said it was no longer produced.  About 15 years ago, my Dad traded wheels with a Ford truck, that had been made for the Army.  I can't cry.  They served Dad, then me, faithfully for about 15 years.  I wish I could find 4 or 5 more for the next 15 years.

It looks like I will have to struggle through a salvage yard for some 16 inch rims.  Hopefully with a nice set of tires already upon them.

In other news I have been banished from Roberta X's good graces.

Spotted Dick

These are the things that caused a couple places in the UK to so
rename the traditional dessert!

"You'll never eat my Spotted Dick again with that behavior!"
"I'm not the sort to shove my Spotted Dick down anyone's throat!"
"You just can't wait to get a taste of my Spotted Dick"
"I'll just whip this out!"

Sorry! Tam posted a reference earlier this last week.
It engendered a craving, and I busted out 4 different Steamed
Sponge Puddings.  Thank God for microwave ovens.

In fact it was the fact that with a microwave oven, I could bust out a
personal chocolate cake in less than 10 minutes.  A veritable corelle ware
ding-dong.  It was a gentleman of British extraction, who informed me
that a spoonful of raisins would turn my guilty pleasure into a Spotted Dick.

Roberta X was right.   Chocolate cake in less than 5 minutes is DANGEROUS!

super bleg!

Guys I'm in a little trouble.  Basically my girlfriend got into a fight.  She spent the previous weekend in jail.  When this gets to trial, I want to make sure the truth, not the slanted journalism of the police report, gets out.  That can't be accomplished with a Guilty Man's Lawyer Public Defender, as a wise man once pointed out, "The lawyers at the Public Defenders office are good at talking themselves out of work, and you into jail.

Right now as it stands, she's accused of heinous crimes.  Failure to be Politically Correct, read as Domestic Violence.  Don't even argue loudly with a person under the same roof as yourself, lest this abuse of the legal process happen to you!

That's torn it.  I'm actually at the point where I'm considering running for public office, in order to protect myself, and the ones I love, from the government.

For now, I'd like you to contribute $5 or $10 to Elizabeth's Legal Defense Fund!
It's a good cause, She's a good woman.
