Random n@.

1. Today is crazy. Tomorrow will be better. I promise. This Random n@ is going to suck donkey omelets, yo. Ya been warned.

2. So a teacher’s aide from the Highlands School District got caught in a hotel room with a bunch of youngsters and cocaine, a scale, beer cans, marijuana, and an empty condom wrapper. She’d like to know:

“Why is this a story?” she asked.

I can’t imagine why.
(h/t Paul)

3. Some Craigslist goodies:

4. Rob Biertempfel, the Buccos reporter for the Trib, wrote to tell me he enjoyed the blog and:

I can almost hear you growling over Kim all the way down here in Braden-town.

So I wrote:

Seeing that you’re down there face to face with the Buccos of Suckitude (and I say that with a lot of affection for the lousy bunch of losers) tell me, how’s the atmosphere this year? Winning-y? Any better than years past?

What is Kim like? Are we going to call him BK, too? Do you think he’ll make the team?

Huh? Huh?!?

And he wrote:

Yes, he responds to BK. No, he doesn’t appear to speak a ton of English (he must have apologized 10 times during our halting, six-minute interview). And as for making the team … eh, I’d say 60-40 (but that’s without seeing him pitch yet).

The aura around the club feels better than it did last year, believe it or not. More business-like. But there also is a sense of “If-I-do-well-they-can-trade-me-to-a-winning-team-Yippee!” that I get from certain fellas.

It is, as coach Tomlin would say, what it is. Don’t expect a .500 record. Do expect Jason Bay to be traded.

Will it be a fun team to watch? It will be, if you were a Sopranos fan. I watched the show just to see who would get whacked from week to week and who’d be around for the next episode. That’s how I’m guessing this Buccos season will go.

Also, if Kim makes the team, we’re losing the BK and we’re going with reader Sue’s suggestion Byung-YUM Kim.

Oh, yes.

5. I was reprimanded for not giving the boys a photo of Sonni when I last wrote about her. Here’s two oldies but goodies for YOU to growl over:

6. I HIGHLY encourage you to head to this old post and read NASCAR Lady’s latest comments. So now I have Benny lovers, NASCAR lovers, and pigeon lovers after me. If there’s a Benny-loving, NASCAR worshipping, pigeon farmer out there somewhere, I am SO going to be murdered.

Post over. Like I said, donkey omelets.

    With each mining of Craigslist, I die a bit more inside.

    If the boy-bander is 25, that would make him 15 or 16 in 1998. The girls who answer that ad would have to be mathematically challenged. Or balding.

    The first Craig’s List ad saved it from sucking donkey omelets, PG. You underestimate yourself.

    You’ve hit the trifecta of whackjob groups obsessing over you. Don’t forget the One Hill Coalition people too!

    Second pic of Sonni reminds me of a 90’s sporting goods model. Look at my USA running suit and vibrant fluffy hair! WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! I admit, it’s hot.

    It’s stupid things like that, that make me glad I’ve already graduated from Highlands. I thought it was bad when I was there…. :shakes head:

    And “Why is this a story?”…really? Really? If you can’t figure out why the hell it’s a story there’s something very wrong with you. Of course, you left your 2 children at home to go drink beer in a hotel room with your friends and meet random guys, leaving your son to come looking for you at some random point during the middle of the night.

    Way to be a good parent.

    LMAO… way to piss off nascarlady.

    I’m sooooooooooooo glad my kids don’t go to Highlands School District. Holy mother is that one skanky looking gal. I’m dying to know what happened in the interview when she got hired.

    I’m going to get back to doing nothing now…

    Has Nascarlady ever been to a hospital?? There are plenty of places that have shift work other than McDonalds. I guess I’ll get back to doing nothing then go to work and do nothing..

    Julie, you are hawt and should stick with your dream of marring a guy who doesn’t wear a ball cap to your wedding even if it means not marring until you. . . .I’m a bit choked saying it . . . are 30.

    PG how did you know that NASCARLady added the comment to a post that is nearly a year old? Comment ESP? I mean how well can you track us poor visitors to your site? Are you really dick Cheney?

    Sonni Abatta has man hands.

    Also, just a wild guess…I’m assuming PhD Dudes PhD will not be in English.

    # He’s an INTENSE PhD candidate (snicker) who wants to be “dinned and winned.” He has a “vast culture” too. In case you’re unfamiliar with the language, that’s Asshole for “I’m a loser that needs to get laid.”

    Give the boy a break. When you are a total God, it’s difficult to post pictures of yourself online and still type with both hands. Obviously he’s the only one (aside from his mom) that really loves him. ;-)

    Do ya think AbbieJean’s son was just a tad embarassed to go to school today…especially after his rocket scientist of a mom was repeatedly referred to as a former erotic dancer??? This just won’t end well.

    Ok, now I see why we all think nascar is redneck….especially when we all paint our faces black and gold and crush beer cans on our chests at Steelers games. yeah, we are real class acts! Better yet, those of us who cant afford tickets so we just go to bars and get drunk as we watch the football games, while we paint ourselves…..omg what have we all come to…Pittgirl,, you rock girlfriend!
