Change.....

… I nipped into town today to cash in some coins that I had laying around and to see if anything on the grocery aisles looked interesting for dinner…. I was disappointed in the first instance (regarding the coinage) and am happy to report that the choice of tonight’s victuals will be homemade burritos…. Did you realize that those conniving vultures charge you a dime on the dollar to turn your change into folding-money?... oh yeah, they surely do…… I tell you, people rob you right, left, and center these days….

… and the pull?.... $162.17…. mercy… it’s a good thing that I’ve been hitting the gym at a fairly regular pace…. Otherwise, hell, I’d have never been able to lug that much copper & zinc across the parking lot……

… anyway, today has been a wonderful day and I can hardly wait for the evening to settle in… days are like that sometimes, you know.....

… oh, and that reminds me…. I have a wee vacation coming up shortly….. I’ll be touring Belgium, Luxembourg, and southwestern Germany from the 5th to the 16th of September with the Missus, the In-Laws, and Uncle Ian…… so if anyone would like to guestpost here while I’m off sipping Stella & gazing at Rubens' artwork, feel free to step right up…. otherwise, well, I will have to let this little light of the blogosphere go dark for awhile until I return….

… so, what say you, rubberneckers?.... care to help a fellow traveler out when he’s in a bind?...... lest I blodge inebriated from somewhere in darkest Belgium via a shaky European barroom connection?......

Bullshit So Far

Hey, I'm always happy to smear shit on the walls of your crib.

Bullshitted by Elisson on August 25, 2007 05:39 PM

Elisson, that is just nasty. I had a nephew that used to do that when he was a baby. Skeeved us all out. First time there was shit on the walls, in the crib, all over him. Next time, it was on the crib, on the walls... but not near his lips. Guess he learned.

Thanks for bringing back the memories. Blech. And of course I HAD to share...

Ellison with friends like you who needs enemas?

What with working 60 hour weeks lately, I haven't been able to keep up with my own sputtering over here. Ergo, I shan't commit to wipe your nose nor your arse. But I did want to say ...again, it seems... bon voyage. Bring back chocolates...

People actually request to have guest bloggers? You mean you liked it when Richard posted that photo of you with mud-covered man-boobs?

Have NICE trip. Sure sounds like lots of fun. Enjoy the Kirschwasser while in Germany, drink it neat, and have beer standing bye.

Don't bother with guest blogging, that is unless you pretype something, then send it to someone else to post on your site. As for me, I will wait until your return, and then read some good writing by you about your trip.

All the best,
Glenn B

yeah, I'll help you out..I got this charmin' picture of a couple of dim-a-crits I'll put on your front page..

Okay, the wife and I love scotch whiskey (whisky to be proper) She likes Leap-frog, I like tullamore dew. I often go to sleep with headphones on playing Tom Waits "Used Songs", or some derivative. She's a proofreader for a living, I fix cars, and drink. I read a lot, and work on my International Harvester pickups (binders) when I have the time and am sober... So this would be perfect! ..except..I'm either over caffeinated, or having a blood sugar crisis, or plain drunk, or whacked out from all of the above to be reliable...oh, and I'm sentimental and often lugubrious. (see Tom Waits and alcohol and car repair).Ha ha. Other than that, sure, gimme the keys, I'll feed the cat and everything! LOL. ps- where's the fire extinguisher?

Assuming my old keys still work, I may just pop in, have a cocktail or two and leave a bit of bowel windage behind.

Dr. Doches might be able to come up with something on birdshit, I suppose, email the keys....

Bou, my mother used to call that "rosebuds" Apparently my brother was fond of them. None of my children ever graced me with one of those, for which I am very grateful.

Bullshitted by holder on August 26, 2007 08:21 PM

Damn. I just spent an hour going through my box of useless sentimental shit that I should have thrown out ten years ago and I found everything from that trip except the card from the really cool bar I went to in Brussels. I'm sure it will turn up as soon as you get back. On the bright side I did find a package of pencils I bought in Barcelona. I needed some pencils.

The real irony is I could almost give you directions from the big square in the center of town, it's in walking distance, but I just can't remember the name of it. Maybe it's the same place anyway. It was Art Deco and it is on top of a hill. Maybe they built a deck by now.

Bullshitted by Libby on August 26, 2007 08:32 PM

I was gonna volunteer to look after the place whilst you're away, but it seems from the previous comments that you've already got some folks far better qualified than me to take over.

You making it over to sunny Angus while you're on your travels?

Bullshitted by Mark on August 27, 2007 04:21 PM

Hey I'm in Kaiserslautern which I "think" is in the Southwestern part of Germany...the Bundesland of Rhineland-Palatinate area....if you're coming close give me a holler.

I could show you our pub up here and you could meet my crazy neighbors in the village...it wouldn't suck...

Bullshitted by Sandy on August 28, 2007 04:09 AM

Well, now, if you're going to be in this neck of the woods anyway, why don't you take a swing at southern England? We've got BBC Radio, Old Speckled Hen, and an air mattress, so you won't miss home. And rumo(u)r has it, the other half of the sistaweb team will be in the country around that time, that being the second week of September, so why don't you come on down and we'll slice the haggis...
