At one point he said “turn me over, this side is done.”

8. DO YOU STILL HAVE YOUR TONSILS?  Why-you want ‘em?

Have not eaten cereal in years other than oatmeal….so I guess oatmeal

  1. That name story is cool... the rest too, but definitely the name thing.

  2. Yeah, my Dad told me that after I had gotten in a fight at school with someone making fun of my name. Ya know how often I heard "Florence" as a kid, and yet there was no public outcry for the bullying.

    I am so happy we live in such an enlightened time now where President Hilary will keep all of our children safe from such acts of horror, as well as allowing them to choose a restroom daily that aligns with how they feel rather than that pesky gender that was "assigned" at birth.

    But when you hear a story like that, how can you ever consider a name change, right?

    I was filling out a bunch of paperwork for my new doctor yesterday and one of the questions was:

    GENDER
    __Male __Female __Other

    So even our medical experts now recognize that there are more than two possibilities. ...All hope is officially lost.

    I'm thinking about putting together a blog bit for this one, because someone needs to get it right:

    1. You are wrong, McDogg-hope is not lost, it is renewed.

      I am feeling sassy today, so I will use the lady's room. Tomorrow, I may feel manly, and will stand for my business.

      Because of Hope and Change, I am no longer bound by that silly visual gender test they gave me right after slapping my butt.

      Not sure there's a right or wrong on the list-it says "your top 5" which implies my favorite, rather than THE top 5.

      But even with a list of the five best, it's so hard to assess-do you go by technique? I would not-lots of thrash metal guitarists have wonderfully fast fingers and I am sure they are proficient, but it's all noise to me.

      Do you remember the Frampton instrumental bit, "Penny For Your Thoughts?"

      As we have discussed many times, sometimes it does not have to be flashy to be good.
