The Home Front Kickoff!

To all you lucky bastards and bitches that will be in Athens GA over the next 3 days I say to thee..... you suck. No, not really, but I am a wee (if 'wee' means 'a butt-load') bit jealous that my shiney ass won't be in attendance.

Here's another look at my recent trip to Athens, GA. If any of y'all see Shayne be sure to smack her upside the back of her head and tell her it was from me. If you see Jenn hug her neck for me. If you see....

Also, if yer in town be sure to check out the pre-party held by Nuci's. Go bid on some excellent swag.

The top 12 'Top 10' lists of 2007 / Best movies? Music? Look elsewhere. Here's the real list to help digest the year gone by

Hardcore mom. I dig.

Mom Sells Rule-Breaking Son's Car:

"Jane Hambleton has dubbed herself the 'meanest mom on the planet.'

After finding alcohol in her son's car, she decided to sell the car and share her 19-year-old's misdeed with everyone — by placing an ad in the local newspaper.

The ad reads: 'OLDS 1999 Intrigue. Totally uncool parents who obviously don't love teenage son, selling his car. Only driven for three weeks before snoopy mom who needs to get a life found booze under front seat. $3,700/offer. Call meanest mom on the planet.'"

You would figure this would bring the couple closer, finding they had a common interest. Alas, they divorced.

What are you doing here? - man asks wife at brothel:

"WARSAW (Reuters) - A Polish man got the shock of his life when he visited a brothel and spotted his wife among the establishment's employees. Polish tabloid Super Express said the woman had been making some extra money on the side while telling her husband she worked at a store in a nearby town."

Who is this?
Yeah, if you're sober enough to hit speed-dial, you will.

Wish I was there....

Will you two get a room?

Looking forward to the link to the Flagpole interview with Patterson tomorrow. That was one of the most insightful interviews I've seen all year. And by year, I mean the rolling kind, the last 12 months.

Shayne prefers public displays of disgust, Jez.

Flagpole was a goodie.
