Random n’at.

1.  My aunt got a new dog, and my mother took to facebook to badger her to post a picture of said new dog, and THIS happened:


My mother immediately deleted the conversation when she saw what she had written, but not before her quick-thinking daughter grabbed a screen-shot of it, to which my mother responded, “You are such a brat.”

I’ll wear that shoe.

2.  If you’re wanting to gaze on God’s perfect creation Daniel Sepulveda in the flesh … … … I’m sorry, where were we? Right. Daniel Sepulveda in the flesh … … … … … [sigh] … … okay, I’m back. You’re in luck! He’ll be at Hometowne Sports in Station Square on October 24.

3.  Last year I brought this event to your attention because you know how I feel about sick kids, and speaking of which, there’s still conversations with organizations happening on the back end here regarding getting those kids that game room at Childrens, so stay tuned.

I”m talking about the Brewing up a Cure event this Saturday, October 17 which supports the fight against Cystic Fibrosis.  This event helps kids like Sadie, who I wrote about last year.  Sadie is five now and started kindergarten:


I’m not going to write about the prognosis and life expectancy for children with Cystic Fibrosis here because Sadie’s parents are reading, and you know, they’re well aware of it and I bet it’s a gut punch to be reminded of it.

VIP tickets are sold out, but regular tickets are not.  There will be a silent auction featuring several Steelers items and also a … are you ready?  HAND-CRAFTED BAR! I know you boys would love to get your hands on that for your man caves.

4.  The Boob Whisperer wasn’t the only one in an uncomfortable and awkward pose over at the P-G Posted site.  Here’s another winner from P-G’s photographer.

5. Aaron Smith is out for the season. He’s important to the rush defense. We barely beat the Lions. If we lose to the Browns, as I wrote to a reader, I will kill Steely McBeam. Twice.

6.  That’s all for right now, but later, I’ve got a pigeon post for you, so please pigeon-lovers, don’t come back until morning and even then, don’t feel the need to tell me I write about pigeons too damn much. I already know you feel that way and I really don’t give a shit.

    LOL! I love when my Mom says something ridiculous on her FB.. she has only recently learned that she can delete certain comments.

    And that picture.. if you are going to “squat” down, maybe it’s best to not back your rear end up against another person’s crotch, but that’s just my opinion. Although methinks there are a few dirty boys that read your blog that will enjoy this picture. :P

    btw — about cystic fibrosis. one of my uncles up in NY had 4 kids — 3 of them were afflicted with CF.

    two of them – a son and a daughter — passed away from it in their teens, within a year of each other.

    the 3rd — another son — had a double lung transplant down here at presby about 10 years ago and it was tremendously successful — until he got sick and passed away last september. he made to age 40, which is an anomoly.

    if I were around this sat, I would attend this “brewing up a cure” event. since I can’t, I would urge all of you to go. I would love for this girl sadie to make it to 40 — and beyond.

    chrys, If you mean me, you’re right. Who/what are the people in that photo, because all the women are at least fairly attractive, but I have a special place in my … um, heart for the two in front who are apparently into mutual backrubs.

    Also I was so looking forward to Brewing for a Cure because IIRC it was on a Sunday last year (at Mr. Small’s, was it?), and I work Saturdays so there was a realistic chance I could go. But I can’t do Saturdays, dammit.

    Admit it, you needed fodder for the blog and you paid your mother for the Facebook post, right?

    Apparently, wherever this picture is on the site is considered to be a place for “social networking.” If backing your rearend up into your friends crotch isn’t social networking, then I don’t know what is. As long as they don’t block thatschurch.com, I’m good. Thanks for posting the pic so quickly, Virginia.

    Laughing at the Facebook screenshot then screeched to a halt when I saw the pic of the little girl with CF. You did that on purpose! Such an emotional rollercoaster at That’s Church!
    Well played :)

    You can’t be going around making promises like that. Now I’m conflicted about Sunday’s game. Steely McBeam dead? That might be worth a Steelers loss.

    Or we could just go sacrifice him to the pigeons now . . .

    A) Any chance that item #1 and item #4 in your post are somehow related?

    B) I’m with unsatisfied. Steely must die anyway. Call Quentin Tarantino. Let’s talk about “Kill McBeam.”

    Is it weird that I’m excited to get the h/t even though I really didn’t do anything other than happen to notice that picture on the front page?

    I second Pa-pop that not only does Steely need to die, he needs to die in an ultra-violent manner befitting Tarantino. We should have turned him over to the anarchists when we had a chance…wait, nevermind, they’d just pee on his leg and call that ultra-violent.

    Okay. I got pass the cute dong (my abs hurt). I’m torn about this Sunday’s game. Do I want us to lose so that you can kill Steely McBeam? Twice? If we win will you still kill him? But only once?
