24-Hour Party Pole

It's St-Jean Baptiste weekend. That means it is time for the annual CPN party. This is not a St-Jean party, just the one day of the year when the miserable CPNs invite other Poles to their house. Here is the man himself, with his table of booze.  Is it me, or did he used to have a LOT more bottles on the table, say 12 or 13 years ago? (i.e. the night of lying in the street aka the night of using chicken coupons)

Father's Day

It's Father's Day, so happy day to the Dad Men out there.

It is also Fancy Feast's birthday. The Big 3-0. So to celebrate this occasion here is a picture of the famous African mask. So easy to pop this in a mail box.

Alright Already

Ok, you bunch of demanding complainers. Here is a blog post.

JAW Fan has found the ideal retirement community for me. Who needs NDG when I can live at this corner. It's life sustaining!


After a very long dry spell, here is an email exchange between your humble blogger and Fancy Feast.

Background: you may or may not remember that just before he departed on his cross-country trip almost a year ago to the day, FF purchased a 4-foot tall wooden African mask at a garage sale. Because of its size, of course, he could not take it on the road, so it stayed here. He also left behind a large bag of his personal papers. I weighed the bag: 15 pounds.

So today I receive this:
FF: Say, would it be too much to ask that you mail me my wooden mask?
Me: Yes, it would be too much to ask. The thing is almost as tall as I am.
You'll need to pick it up or have somebody pick it up for you. There's also a big bag of your personal papers to go with it. (Notice how I now have zero tolerance for his bull)
FF: I'm pretty sure you can get a postal service to pick it up as is. You don't even need to put it in a box.
(Notice how he completely ignored what I said and answered as if I had said yes and had not even mentioned the big bag o'papers)

I did not respond. It would only escalate and then he would tell me I'm a bad friend for not sending him two African masks.

Another celeb death: our youth is disappearing

I may start to think of 2012 as the year all of JAW Fan's favourite celebrities died.
Now it's Richard Dawson. Survey says: Rest in peace.
