And here's Trace Beaulieu and Mary Jo Pehl!

Also, I walk away with this:


This was the best weekend ever!

That's awesome!!

Um, you're not holding them in your basement, right?

Don't click on the link if you're eating. It's... from biology class and involves a rat...

I took biology class involving dissection and remember the sights and smells pretty well. Trust me, I won't click if I'm eating.

back when I was in high school and we dissected frogs, the preservatives used had an overpowering stench. The rats though, if I was really close looking at small stuff like the thyroid gland, I noticed a slight hint of formaldehyde, but otherwise I didn't smell anything. The technology has come a long way in the past 13 years i guess.

Well, my lab partner regularly butchers deer carcases and I was a serial killer back in the '70s, so we knew what we're doing.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I was in high school between 1989 and 1992, and back then let's just say a biology class lab setting could be pretty....pungent. I guess I graduated before some of the more recent developments were put into effect for students.

It had nothing to do with "butchering" skills. The rats I saw always had weird residues, clumpy fluids in its gut.

Would you riff me?

I'd riff me.

I'd riff me so hard.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

They just opened a Dave & Busters in the big mall here. While strolling thru the mall today, I noticed they posted these rules and dress code for entering. I found them mildly amusing…

I'm sure they've had problems in the past that forced them to do that. Six Flags has similar rules.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

My Mother-in-law is in town and took my daughter to have her first salon haircut. She also got a manicure, a glitter tattoo, and a new stuffed toy!






My wife took this one a few days ago and it gave me a good chuckle. On the weekends I will sit in this chair, have a coffee, and a read a few comic books. Most of the time my cat Gimli will jump up and sit in my lap. My daughter went to a great deal of effort to "read comic books like Daddy", right down to having her stuffed toy cat join her!

As always, your daughter is adorable! And when I see that top pic I get such a huge pang of longing for New York. Damn it, I really like that city.
