Random n’at.

1.  A conversation between PittGirl and Sister of PittGirl:

[picking up a copy of James Frey’s A Million Little Pieces that is lying on Sister of PittGirl’s table] What’s this, Sister of PittGirl?

Oh, PittGirl, that is a great book about —

It’s lies, you know?  All lies.

I know, but some of it is based in fact and–

Lies, I tell you.  All lies!

But it’s a really good book and —

I know.  I read it.

Oh.  Ok.  So you know that it —



I love to mess with her.  So fun.

2.  If it snows in late April/practically May, almost killing the Hibiscus planter you left outside thinking it was, I don’t know SPRING!, after you shake a fist at the weather gods, you should be allowed to sic a rabid starving pigeon on any person that dares to breathe a word about “global warming” unless that person says specifically, “Global warming, my ass.”

3.  Does anyone have a good picture of Jim Lokay (fanclub = 77 members) that I can superimpose the word FAIL on his forehead?  My Facebook fan club currently has 301 members and NONE of them are people that I made up out of thin air with the Random Name Generator.

How long before I can overtake that world-famous Burgher iJustine (164 fan club members but over 1,000 supporters)?

I know. Never.

Darn you, iJustine and your hot nerdy hotness.

Also, if I HAD used the Random Name Generator, these are the names I would pick:

  • Diggory  Bryan
  • Tilly  Diller
  • Pip  Bullard
  • Ormerod  Coveney
  • Hebe  Fiscina
  • Chet  Priebe

There are just not enough people in the world named Ormerod.  I think I’ll name my mp3 player Ormerod. Wait, scratch that.  Diggory Ormerod Coveney.  Yeah.  Solid.  Sounds like the kind of guy that Saucy Carmiesha Juicy would show her thong to.

4.  Father of the year.

Ok.  I’m trying not to judge, I am.  But, you know what sucks?  My sister and brother-in-law are going through the process to adopt a foster child.  In order to become a foster parent/adopt a foster child you have to go through this insanely rigorous process that includes hours and hours of classes, CPR training, home visits, a medical physical, criminal history checks, etc.  You even have to have a fire escape plan posted in your house!  So my sister basically has a piece of paper near her stairs that says, “Turn around.  The door is RIGHT. THERE!”

But any loser with a couple million good swimmers with a hankering for eggs can bring a child into a life where “420” rules.

Like, way to advertise it, dad.

5.  Yikes!

I am a well known member of the local bdsm community and by escorting me to various functions you will gain acceptance more quickly within the community along with being invited to attend various functions and private parties.

Well, aren’t we all looking to get ahead in the local BDSM community?

Also?  Is it really that hard to gain acceptance in the local BDSM community?  Don’t you just show up and say, “I’m a freak!” and they start hugging you?

I think I might need to become less of an innocent, eh?  And DEFINITELY less judgmental of the freaks.


I’m kidding!  Don’t write me, yo.

    Do you think he picks up his phone and says, “Rolf!” so that it sounds like he’s barking?

    Gosh, I hope so. That is a WONDERFUL name.

    My significant other went to high school with a guy named Richard Powers.

    No, he did not go by Richard… or Rich.

    Yep, she graduated with Dick Powers. Talk about trying to live up to your name!

    Umm I would think if U went to a BDSM community function you would NOT want them to hug you after uttering “I’m a freak.” What you would want is a few round house kicks n blows a la the blissful wedded Wielechowski’s. Now there’s an idea…make the Wielechowski anniversary’s an annual BDSM event.

    True weirdest name I know: Goodcakes Smedley

    I know a Crystal Chanda Lear, who predictably became a stripper.

    #5- From BDSM girl: “Attach a recent photograph of yourself that is a regular photo and not genitalia.”

    This should be the closing line of every Craiglist post. Even the job postings.

    Also Thomas Crapper did not invent the toilet and Otto Titsling did not invent the brassiere. However Carlotta Tendent was the first successful owner of a $2 all day parking lot in Pittsburgh in the 1930’s.

    Global warming…MY ASS!!!
    Just follow the money…first academia strikes fear into population with alarmism of “climate change” (Oh my Gawd the polar bears are dyyyiing!)…then they say “We must study this!!”…Then they say “We need $$$$$$ (government grants) to study this!”…Then they say “We need more of YOUR TAX DOLLARS to study this!” You get the picture.

    Brilliant Jim. Science Magazine analyzed the 928 peer-reviewed scientific papers on global warming published between 1993 and 2003. Not a single one challenged the scientific consensus the Earth’s temperature is rising due to human activity. I guess all those “scientists” are part of a huge conspiracy, but you, with your expert scientific acumen saw through their little ruse to steal your tax dollars. Man you are a genius, you must be a brilliant scientist in your own right. What is your field of expertise: chemistry, physics, biology?

    I kind of love the BDSM lady for saying that all emails with poor grammar and typing will be deleted. Maybe if they take a stand on this in the fetish community it will trickle down to regular folk.

    Biology with Ecology emphasis. Nobody bullshits me. It’s all about the MONEY…ask Dr. William Gray, renowned climatologist/hurricane forecaster.
    You must be gettin’ some o’ dat federal funding, JP…or just a dupe.
