hmm… guess the site is a backdoor into the Democratic Party. Someone better warn RedShirt.


Hi everyone! Europe was great. Adele cancelled the show we were supposed to see, but we overcame those odds by drinking wine in Tuscany for 6 days. It’s how one makes do. The downside was flying home via Rome & Montreal – Lufthansa had us in the nicest of Airbuses back to Canada, and Air Canada flew us home from Montreal in the belly of a converted water bomber.

Now, since I have your attention, here’s the vacation slides:

London: Canada Day in Trafalgar Square

Brighton:

Florence: The Ponte Vecchio

Siena:

Rome:

Now we don’t have to do it at New Year’s.

Thanks to everyone who covered my bony arse with a barrage of quality open threads. BACK TO MEDIOCRITY!

I put off mowing the lawn today because my ankle I hurt 20 years ago playing hockey was hurting again to the point I could barely walk. There was a 30% of rain in our area tonight. That happened and there is an inch of standing water outside now. I don’t know if I am going to be able to mow tomorrow.

yeah right

One of the many joys of having shit awful knees is the random day when it feels like someone replaced your meniscus with ground glass.

And for no discernable reason.

Fuck this. It’s self medication time.

King Hippo

Best way to medicate!

Also, Lufthansa is really quite awesome.

But good stew.

As I told my chill’uns, they really just large rats with giant ears.

So you’ve been to my neighborhood. I miss the coyotes.

Romonobyl

So if London has a Canada Day in Trafalgar Square, does Montreal have an England Day at the Molson Brewery East Parking Lot?

theeWeeBabySeamus

That’s Baltimore Day.

theeWeeBabySeamus

Sorry, thought you said Natty Boh Parking Lot.

You guys are classless, not even drinking the Natty Ice. You realize how much alcohol you are missing out on per beer.

Also works great as a thinner for oil-based paint!

Whoever came up with the concept of Christmas in July needs to be drawn, quartered, flayed, broken on the wheel, tarred, feathered, spit-roasted then forced to watch Speed 2 on a constant loop in a room full of Justin Beiber fans…Daily.

I haven’t seen Speed 2 in like 15 years so I remember basically nothing, but I thought I came out of it thinking it was just an slightly lower than ok movie not painfully bad. Plus don’t we get to see Sandra Bullock in a bikini in that one?

As I recall the cruise ship crashed for an entire hour of run-time. Or it felt that way.

Romonobyl

Almost as realistic as the 15 minute takeoff roll of the Russian cargo plane in the latest Furious Fisting movie.

Romonobyl

It was worse than Super Bowl Lee.

Jerry Was A Shogun Named Marcus

Just confirmed we’re going to see Maria Bamford in September up front. We’re bringing our wedding RSVP that she personally wrote back on to say she couldn’t make it.

yeah right

I wish somebody had introduced me to the Moscow mule many years prior to when I discovered them.

Goddamn delicious beverage.

Went to a beer festival thing downtown with a Polish coworker. He cried uncle so back to the house. Sitting on the porch with the parrot on my shoulder, drinking a bridge from the fridge.

It is good to own land. Methinks I will put the parrot in the cage and just pass out on the porch lounge chair and sleep outside.

I wish I had a valid reason to start a sentence with “Sitting on the porch with the parrot on my shoulder”.

Yeah he us a pedo…but for some fucking reason, my parrot goes fucking apeshit for this song…

As long as I keep him away from kids, he is chill…

Wakezilla

Me to my retired mom: “Hypothetically, I might get a new job in the fall which could cause issues with no-one being able to watch Wakezilla-ette. Could you watch her?”

Mom says no and uses every excuse under the sun why she can’t. She even says that she could get terminally ill one day and therefore it’s not a good idea. She made her point and it is not surprising tbh. I say no problem, this is hypothetical anyway.

15 minutes later, she yells at me for putting me on the spot like that and mad at me for making her look bad (infront of nobody, mind you).

That’s when my dad, in the other room goes “what the hell is mamma Morkie”.

Apparently, my mom has decided she wants to get a dog and didn’t tell my dad and to make things worse, it’s a half Maltese half yorkie mix.

Things couldn’t get any more awkward at this point.

So…. How’s everyone tonight?

litre_cola

there is a lot going on there.

yeah right

As a grandfather I’m not sure I could be relied upon on a regular basis.

When you get older you seek out fewer commitments.

Not a fault nor is it a virtue. It’s simple reality.

King Hippo

maybe you should have asked your Dad instead?

theeWeeBabySeamus

HEY LOOK EVERYBODY!!!!!! THEY LET BEERGUYRICK BACK IN THE COUNTRY!!!!

theeWeeBabySeamus

Oh yeah…it’s just Canadia.
*sigh*

litre_cola

Havent been kicked out yet!

King Hippo

Also, congrats on not having to sit through Adele.

More importantly…how’s your ass?

theeWeeBabySeamus

Yikes, that hadn’t occurred to me.
Lotsa sitting betwixt here and there. Yeeeesh.

King Hippo

Go Team Drugs!!!
