New Toothdoctor

Filed under:   by Xrlq @ 2:29 pm

Finally had my first check up with a dentist in the Triad, only two years after starting here. Conversation with the new dental assistant:

Her: So, who do we have to thank for referring you as a client?

Me: Kirk Turner.  All my colleagues had him as their dentist, so if he hadn’t murdered his wife he’d probably be mine now, too.

With “Friends” Like These…

Filed under:   by Xrlq @ 9:27 pm

One of my Facebook “friends” called me a weirdo. Another told me I don’t belong here. Query where “here” is. California, where she lives now? No problem, don’t want to go back there, anyway. Carolina, where she used to live and knows I live now? That’s a problem. The US as a whole? Bigger problem. Earth? Real problem. All this after I opened my heart and soul to such friends by taking the bold and unprecedented step of admitting to not being special, as one might wish to be, but rather, a creep.

These cyberbullies are really getting me down. So how’s your day?

What’s all the fuss about? I’m sure this is every bit as innocent as this.

Tommy Shaw Isn’t The Only Person With Too Much Time On His Hands

Just when you thought they had a web site for everything imaginable, along comes another web site to show that the only real limit on imaginability is one’s own imagination.

Hat tip to Molly N. on Facebook.

UPDATE: How could I forget? Thanks to commenter Mikee for pointing out this glaring omission.

Trouble in the White House?

Filed under:   by Xrlq @ 5:25 pm

It can’t be a good sign when the President and his teleprompter aren’t friends.
