Happy leftovers, y’all!


Well, our turkey roll wasn’t very good, I woke up this morning with a streaming cold, and Florence Henderson died in the night.

On the other hand, nobody had her in the Dead Pool and I bought Doom 2016 for 67% off. It kicks several different kinds of ass. So, a draw.

Good weekend, everyone!

FIDEL IS DEAD! FIDEL IS DEAD! FIDEL CASTRO HAS FINALLY POPPED HIS CLOGS! Congratulations to Deborah HH, who has won dick in the most satisfying possible way. We all know what this means — DEAD POOL ROUND 91. Be here Friday.

Doom 2016 is on my short list of games to buy for our new XBox One. Is it worth it, even without the 67% discount?

Stoatie, I’m so sorry to hear you’re ailing. I sure hope you have a nice cocoon in which to nestle warmly while you blast demons or whatever it is you do in Doom 2016.

We’ve had two Dead Pools in a row where someone’s kicked off on a Thursday night or Friday morning, causing a “lag week” before the new Dead Pool can be started.

Damned inconsiderate of these people, shuffling off the mortal coil at such inconvenient times. Don’t they know how important it is to honor the venerable tradition of Weasel Blog Time?

Boy howdy, I am right full of it today. 🙂

… Hey, what happened to the weasel smilies?

Oh… and Stoaty? Feel better soon, huh?

Anyone have Fidel Castro in the Dead Pool? Looks like the evil mass-murdering bastard has finally croaked. I wish I believed in Hell, ‘cos he’d be roasting up nicely right about now.

It really hasn’t been a good couple of weeks for Democrats, has it?

Dammit! Somebody has Fidel but it wasn’t me cause I was lazy and late. I had dreams of internet imortality from picking Fidel in the Dead Pool and I missed it,

But… I like to think that the shock of Trump’s election was responsible, I did see an article in the WSJ today saying that the EU is urging Iran to get in line on its nuclear program before Trump Getscin office and kills the current agreement entirely

Well, I do believe in Hell. I’m sure that nasty old SOB is getting a big surprise right about now. The sad part is that I’m also fairly sure that candles have been lit and tears shed for him by some misguided clergy of my adopted faith.

Lord, open their eyes.

PS – Congrats to Deborah HH. That’s a Dick worth framing.

Timothy, Doom is an absolute hoot. Most fun I’ve had playing a shooter in…well, since the first Doom, I reckon. And it’s eyeball porn. Ohmigod, the textures!

On PC, though, it’s upward of 75 gigs.

Needed it today. Woke up before dawn feeling like poop. Although, Castro’s death has cheered me up considerable.

Slept late this morning. As I was booting up just a few minutes ago—me with a large coffee in hand, and Voyager the Toshiba in my lap, I asked Husband, “What new outrage has occurred overnight?” because I always open Drudge first.

It WILL be a Dead Pool worth framing, because we all won!

Congratulations Deborah HH ! said Some Vegetable in his best brave voice.
You’re right; we all win.

Seriously though I hope somebody does one of those parody videos like ‘Hitler learns Trump won the election’ but this one is ‘Fidel learns that Hillary lost!’

There is much celebrating and dancing in the streets here in Florida from the Cuban exile community.

When I was in high school many, many moons ago, my bf’s mother who was Cuban would always walk around muttering about Castro’s demise. I’m sure she’s a very happy woman today. 🙂

And congrats Deborah HH on an historic dick pick!

*rubbing eyes* I thought Florence Henderson triggered the win… wait… no… nobody had her. I gotta get my eyes checked.

On the other paw: Castro is dead? Well … today IS a good day then.

And congrats to Deborah HH on a pick for the ages! I’m happy to say that my pick (a GOOD guy) outlived the commie rat bastard.

Drudge was hours late with the Castro story, FYI.

They were dancing in the streets last nite in Miami, so when did they find out? I didnt hear until early this AM. Hopefully, when Raul goes, it will be the end of that nasty regime.

Dropping like flies they are. Ron Glass of Barney Miller and Firefly fame is dead at 71.

Ah, great! Thanks for the Doom info. Now it’s on my ‘very short list’. I’ll let you know how it plays on the Xbox One.

I fear there will be a mad scramble for Raul Castro in the next Dead Pool, rivaling the worst Black Friday skirmish imaginable. Beware sharp points and foul language, friends.

What will _really_ be interesting is when Raul kicks the bucket (he being 85yo, it shant be long). Then the _real_ fun starts in Cuba. Anyone know who the next in line is, and if he/she is yet another miserable son-offa-bitch?

C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S, Deborah HH. A finer dick has never been had.

The Castro clan has embedded itself in power, I think. I read of one young Castro sitting next to Obama’s emissary at some event, his wrist adorned by a Rolex. If they are sucking up that kind of money, and can flaunt it, they have control.

One of these days, the cuban people are going to want an election. smh

Thank you, thank you all. I am still in shock. As RushBabe said, “commie rat bastard.” That’s what I said the day I got him in the deal pool.

Fidel Castro was the bogyman of my youth. My father was a Navy Reservist and called to standby during the Cuban missile crisis. Years later I worked as a draftsman at an aerial mapping and survey company. One of my co-workers was the (formerly) 19-y.o. Navy intel specialist who made the charts and diagrams that JFK displayed on television. Chartpak tape and Leroy lettering 🙂

Deborah HH: Ahh. Military briefing chart making. Wow. That was many, many years ago. When making the snow-job briefing charts, I was able to handle the Chartpak tape, but I was as skilled at Leroy lettering as I was at Spirographs — OK until the last few strokes, then *zip* out of the template and a line across the page. Also had trouble keeping the ink pots working on the Leroy kits.
And then there was Harvard Graphics. arrgh.

Watched that show Who Do You Think You are after reading the recent buzz for it on the internet. It was good. Some people say everyone in the UK is related to royalty but this guy had direct linage.

I wasn’t allowed to use the Leroy set at work. You had to have specific training.

I use to dabble in calligraphy. I did Romans but my favorite were the tiny less formal romans. I found them very relaxing. They are ideal for maps.
