Greece's financial crisis threatens to take down all of Western civilization - a civilization they themselves founded. A rather tragic irony - which is something they also invented. - Jon Stewart

How many Buffistas did I call while doped up on morphine? Hands up!

This is also my brother's plan.

Yeah, I think I'll be utterly debauched. I'll be eighty and they'll be asking my family "how's gramma doing?" and they'll be "If you find her, let us know. Last we heard she was chasing the dragon with rent boys in Vegas."

But what if what they really want to know is how well you conform and obey authority?

Me too.

Part of me is considering going to HR and asking hypothetically, what to do if there is suspected drug use. There have been too many people recently who have commented on this person, but she does not have any on site managers or supervisors - no one to monitor her behavior.

My 5 year old son came up with a new joke (at least he claims to have made it up on his own).

What croaks but doesn't hop?

The oxy thing was the first time I ever felt a flicker of compassion for Rush Limbaugh

I love the irony that the ACLU came to his defense.

Weimaraners are SUCH beautiful dogs. (Though the GwtW names -- just a leeeeetle bit cheesy.)

"This bar smells like kerosene and stripper tears."

Weimaraners are SUCH beautiful dogs.
