Just some news you can use

Getting right to the winners from the Chocolate Covered Contest:

Reforming Geek

And don't forget today, from 2 to 6 Taco Bell is giving away a free taco because of some World Series promotion. A base was stolen in the first game, so everyone in America gets to steal a taco, or something like that. Kind of a strange promotion. You'd think it would be based on a home run or something. But the Yankees have a worse promotion during the year.
First you have to enter, and they have to pull your ticket. They do 1 per game. Right off, the odds aren't that good. Then, in order to win, the Yankees fourth hitter in that particular inning, has to hit a grand slam. And the prize isn't even that good, it's 10 grand. They have had this promotion for a few years, and I've never heard of anyone winning.

This is going to be an especially short post.

My schedule is off . I couldn't take my nap because they are putting on a new roof. Apparently, explosives were being used to get off the old roofing material, and this Photobucket
is being used to install the new one. Are the walls supposed to shake like that?

Thank you! On to Greenland...I guess that it would be a poor career choice to become a farmer there?

Unknown said...

Thanks, now when is the contest for the drugs to go with my chocolate. Oh yeah, you don't do those things do you? By the way, Greenland is in trouble. Their Krona is worth 50% less than it was. Bad news for Greenland.

Lucy said...

The problem with Greenland is that their very name is meant to con you into going there. Greenish people...their land SUCKS! No wonder Chelle decided to offend the bejesus out of them.

Unknown said...

Woo-hoo and boy howdy! This is even better than an Arte y Pico award! Because I can eat it and not have to dust it on my virtual mantle. It's so exciting!!

Donnie said...

I've always found it somewhat quieter just to go sit on the roof with the roofers. That way the sound's not bounding off the interior walls like you're in a drum.

WhoooHooo, brang it on, Baby. And it better be an unopened package with no bite marks!
As tight as you are, I can't believe you are bustin loose for a new roof. Y'all must have runned out of pans to catch the water.
Hearts and flowers,

@ Tahtimbo: True.

@ Etta: Yup, I don't do them.

@ Lucy: Total con game. They are the 3 card monte of countries.

@ Jenn: Exactly. No dusting required. And you don't have to pass them along to 196 of your closest friends. Though you can share some with Scoobie if you choose.

@ Don: Being in here it was exactly like being in a drum. If it ever stops raining, they will come back and finish the job.

@ Puff Matty: I ain't buying that story.

@ Eve: I'm not cheap, I'm frugal. How'd you know she ran out of pots and pans?

ReformingGeek said...

Yippee! I'm a winner. Thank you, thank you, thank you! My mouth is watering....

BTW, that dude with the "big hammer", I think he's compensating for something....

Kirsten said...

Is that whole Taco Bell thing true, or is this a ruse to make me look like a jackass there today?

Gianetta said...

I think I would need a bigger pair of carpenter pants to carry that hammer around.

A New Yorker said...

YO quero taco bell.

Da Old Man said...

@ Reforming: Congrats. Use the email address on the side.

@ Kirsten: I would never do that to you. OK, I would, but you can Google it to see for yourself.

@ MA: True Dat

@ Lauren: Si

Chat Blanc said...

sure, greenland is useless, but if they shared chocolate like you share chocolate I bet they'd be thick with immigrants! :)

Sandee said...

Well, it's not right that you didn't get your nap. At our ages naps are a necessity. Just saying. Love that hammer. Bwahahahahahaha. :)

Da Old Man said...

@ Dana: It's in my roof.

@ Chat: Might not be a bad idea.
You should talk to their minister of the interior.

@ Sandee: Yeah, and I get real cranky without a nap.
