Well, this sucks royally

this sucks royally

Still blocked. I don’t know if the report Brian L. kindly filed on my behalf has had time to go through. He said 24 hours, and that was Friday. I presume that’s 24 business hours, so it’s touch and go. I’ve just signed up (with my real name and address…brrr) to make a polite request of my own.

Meanwhile, those of you subject to the Big Red Hand, don’t check from work until I give the all clear. BRH is one of the metrics that Websense measures. Wouldn’t want to get anybody in trouble.

It’s not like anything interesting will be going on here while I’m locked out…

To prove I have no life whatsoever, that’s a Royal model 602 upright vacuum in the picture. It was Royal’s “budget” cleaner. My father had a small-appliance repair business and was a dealer for Royal vacuums. I don’t recall using weasels for demonstrations, but they *were* very good vacuums.

OK, carry on, don’t mind me! :)

Where is everybody? Honest to goodness, there was a time when you couldn’t get a comment in edgewise on the intertubes. Lately it seems I’m shouting into a tin can with no string on the end.

And where in the hell is McGoo? Someone better start checking the ditches around Denny’s and Waffle Houses for an old guy with a cane and whoopee cushion.

I see a red hand and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls go by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

I see a line of cars and they’re all painted black
With flowers and my love both never to come back
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away
Like a new born baby it just happens every day

I look inside myself and see my heart is black
I see my red door and must have it painted black
Maybe then I’ll fade away and not have to face the fact
It’s not easy facin’ up when your whole world is blocked
No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue
I could not foresee this thing happening to you

If I look hard enough into the settin’ sun
S Weasel will laugh with me before the mornin’ comes

I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black
I see the girls go by dressed in their summer clothes
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes

sorry SW, Big Brother is now watching YOU! I guess the end of the internet as we know it is closer than we think…

Glenster, I am in awe. I actually owned that thing. It was part of the junk that got cleared away in the first wave. It was an impressive artifact.

Crud, sorry about that, Stoaty. It usually gets processed a lot faster than this—they must have some *real* reason why they think your site’s “Tasteless.” You been publishing black and white pr0n over here? ;)

For what it’s worth, I check from work exclusively, and as you can see, you come in just fine…

Brian – Think maybe it was the post on Olde English buggery, and the cat-jewels that did it?

Odd, normally web filter thingys are all up in my face here at work, but I’m not getting the no no message.

Still blocked.

I find a broccoli salad is usually very good at relieving blockage, but that’s just me.

So did that vacuum scare the piss out of the weasel, or is that a puddle of blood?

Pupster, McGoo was moving to the sticks. Looks like it is taking much longer than he anticipated to get hooked up to the innertubes.

Oh trip out, now that I see it in color I realize we had that vacuum when I was a kid. Too funny. I think it was just as dirty too.

Poor squished weasel. You are supposed to turn the thing on rather than bat the rat over the head with it.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
