the time is always now

I had to take a little time away from the busy campaign trail now that Divajood has declared for the presidency with the extraordinary Nunley as her running mate to reminisce again about the old days.. and I do mean old.

I've also been brushing up my typing skills so I can be a good Secretary of State when that happy day comes next January. I'm sure there's going to be a lot of real swearing at the swearing in ceremony.


I was thinking about how the lessons we learn when we first move out into the world end up being the foundation we build our lives on.


If you're not too busy campaigning yourself the new story is Outsider Art. I've always liked a good outsider and outside chances and outside possibilities. We may go the whole way, ladies. Your time has come.

This race really is heating up. The most important question, of course, is would I wish to have a beer with them?

Randal Graves said...

Oh you would. Unlike Chimpy, they can speak in complete sentences and keep the usage of 'folks' to a minimum.

But susan, you really think there will be that much swearing? I've can't recall one instance of either diva or ME being so crass.

susan said...

cdp - In this heat a beer definitely or at least a nice glass of lemonade.

randal - I meant THEM not US. The use of expletives is best left to those whose language skills are deficient.

DivaJood said...

the real issue is would Nunly or I wish to have a beer with the common folk? Chocolate cake is a food group. Fuckin a, there will be no swearing in this campaign.

I'm ready for some real swearing. As the proposed chair of the FCC, I approve any and all swearing on television.

Violence shall be banned, however.

...and those with sufficient language skills can use some of the best expletives.

I swear, it's true.

susan said...

divajood - Bloody hell! Chocolate cake is a food group? How about strawberries and cream?
I'll volunteer to have a beer with the common folk in your honor.. and I bet there's a few who'll join me ;-)

dcup - I can tell you'll make a fine Chair of the FCC and since they had to suffer through Michael Powell's term the swearing will be a relief.

okjimm - You mean like 'May the bird of paradise fly up your nose'?

okjimm said...

Susan....no, ah, much more, ah, descriptive.... other orfices...I had a summer job when young and innocent at a huge lumber yard. Those dudes knew how to, ah talk ..... noses didna count unless you broke one on the job.

susan said...

okjimm - I used to have neighbors who were truckers and longshoremen who drank Molson's by the crate. They couldn't couldn't swear in front of the kids or their wives would brain them so I grew up hearing some very descriptive phrasing. :-)

Randal Graves said...

Oh okay, I'm glad that shit is finally fucking cleared up. Smrt people, can't have a beer with 'em.

susan said...

randal - I'm not sure how the whole beer thing started but whether root or grain I'd be happy hanging out on Thayer St. with you.

susan said...

rg - ps: I think the lot of us would make quite a good crowd there on a Sat. afternoon :-)

Pagan Sphinx said...

hahahha...okjimm...you're so right! Some of the most foul-mouthed (and creative) individuals I've met were in the world of academia, when the CR and I lived on a college campus for a job he had there.

Sadly, the double Phd Princeton/Yale guy we knew was also one of the most racist people I ever met - interestingly he was half Iraqi. But I digress...

Randal Graves said...

I wouldn't mind a road trip to hang out with all you crazy loons. Anyone have a reliable car I can borrow? ;-)

susan said...

pagan sphinx - Sadly, racism isn't just a preoccupation of misguided white people.

randal - No, but I have a bicycle that doesn't get much use since my interrupted trip to Wisconsington.

I'm glad to see that Diva put out the word about chocolate cake being a food group. This is stuff that SHOULD be taught in schools, but thanks to that freakin' "No Child Left Behind" Act, they're messing with the kids' heads.

And swearing? It's a religious experience. Believe me, it's fucking great, it helps to clear the mind in order to contemplate the important things in life, like sex. ;-)

DivaJood said...

Chocolate, strawberries and cream, real hamburgers, happy underpants, puppies, rainbows, kittens and anything else - all important to our 5th party run for the White House. Nunly covers the swearing well - she makes it a religious experience.

Now having said that - there are shenanigans going on with my opponent. We may have to have beer with the common folk.

Now, what is the non-alcoholic equivalent of a boiler-maker? Do I have to drop a shot of espresso into a root beer, or something?

susan said...

me - Yep, there's nothing like sex and chocolate cake (in any order or all at once but some things I prefer strawberries and cream). Gotta keep our priorities in order.

dj - I'll be over to check out the shenanigans. Maybe me will be over there if she hasn't sworn herself ecstatic or something.

I hope a non-alcoholic boilermaker has nothing to do with hot sauce and lemonade.

Susan, just remember that as you travel the world representing this great nation of ours, don't forget to tell them that our mission is one of peace and bringing pot for every chicken.
