Dog’s breakfast


Dog’s breakfast: (mainly British, idiomatic) An unappealing mixture; a disorderly situation; a mess.

This post is a dog’s breakfast, not the thing in the picture. That would be a pizzurger: a double Whopper with a slice of pepperoni pizza between the beef patties. Brought to you by the fine folks at This Is Why You’re Fat.

Hell’s yes I’d eat one. Right this minute. No monetary wager required.

So, my RSS feed is down. Any ideas how I fix it? Yes, I realize there’s probably mucho documentationio on the WordPress site, but I’m in the “I’ll sit here with my mouth open and hope a ham sandwich falls into it” school of technical support.

I only vaguely grasp what an RSS feed is and was astonished to learn mine had been working before. Wonder how I did that. Presumably, it were the last WP upgrade what killed it. Thanks to everyone who wrote and told me it’s dead.

And the answer to this question is: lawnmower. I peeled that decal off the deck of my new (old) pushmower prior to treating a couple of rust spots. Not much help, is it? I guess the third icon describes pebbles being kicked out by the blade, but I’m still bereft of clue what the monolith is all about.

It’s American, by the way (trust me to run to the only American-made mower we saw and throw my arms around it). So that there’s probably good old-fashioned Yankee impenetrability.

Good weekend, ever’body!

And, stragely enough, the dog eyeing the sammich bears a striking resemblance to Lowjack, the stray with a 130 IQ on SciFi channel’s show Eureka.

As for the issue with your RSS feed, it is likely that the last update closed the port (usually port 7780) for the feed. If it is giving you an error, you can google the error text and usually find a fix.

p.s. We had a jailbreak today while I was on the phone interviewing for a new job. 4 kittehs jumped the wire, but were promply slobbered into submission by the head guard. No injuries, but alot of bent kitteh feelings over excessive use of drool in their apprehension…

Yankee? That rusty old tub was made in Georgia…

Silly weasel.

The real Georgia. The one in America.

Strange thing, but since I switched to a low-carb diet (for really, really good health reasons in case anyone wants to impugn my manhood) I find things like that actually repellent. We get fed on Fridays in the office and this week it was pizza, but I did not feel left out in the slightest. I had my small portion of ham, and my green salad with Italian dressing, and I enjoyed it a lot, without feeling smug. The pizza looked barf-inducing. And I used to lurve pizza. I hope it’s not the zeal of the convert, ‘cos those people get on my tits something chronic.

On the good side, I dropped nearly two stone in three months.

Good for you David!

I’ve done the low carb thing 2 times with good success, but I’ve never been able to loose my carb cravings. After about 3 weeks I’d crawl through broken glass for some pasta and garlic bread.

Yeah, I’m with Pupster. I did really, really well cutting out the carbs — it settled some long-standing digestion problems for me. But, after a few weeks, I’d murder for a piece of toast.

That looks pretty gross to me. But not as gross as that one minor league team I read about once that serves Krispy Kreme hamburgers. Instead of a bun on your hamburger, you get two Krispy Kreme donuts. EWWWW!!!

Soft drinks are similar. When you haven’t been drinking them for a while, they just don’t taste as good.

That, of course, doesn’t stop me from craving a Dublin* Dr. Pepper made with pure cane sugar. I haven’t had a Dr. Pepper in three years – I gave it up forever in June ’06.

*the real one – the one in Texas 😉

The final clue in the puzzle. . .

1. Caution
2. Read the manual first
3. People nearby will be hit by flying debris
4. Give yourself clearance when mowing near the house or Wendy House.

Well, that’s just great. I had this really funny list of probable translations for the Weez’s rebus I was gonna post, and now Airdale has “explained the joke.”

It was a really funny list, too.

There’s another upgrade out now (2.8.1 beta) that addresses a whole slew of bugs. Don’t know if yours might be among ’em, though.

I have more incentive than merely shedding some excess avoirdupois to keep me on the straight and narrow – namely not going blind and/or dying. Constantly hovering on the edge of hypoglycaemia is a bit tiresome, though. I can eat everything else though. I had a sirloin that overhung the edge of the plate last night.

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.
