Had trouble coming up with something to post about tonight, so I had a stiff vodka. Now I still can’t think of anything to post about, but I feel a whole lot better about that.

Not that there isn’t stuff going on. I’ve been watching the Romney polling threads today with awe. I think we may finally be seeing that preference cascade Ace is always talking about.

But I don’t want to jinx it by being too triumphal this far from the goal. As my old mother used to say, there’s many a slip ‘twixt the cup and the lip.

You wouldn’t think there would be many opportunities to slip just getting a glass to your mouth, but Mother was fond of the occasional stiff vodka herself.

Okay, Dead Pool tomorrow. Six pm Weasel Blog Time. Be here!

We’re playing for dick again. I’m pondering alternatives — preferably alternatives that allow me to continue making stupid and gratuitous spotted dick jokes.

I’ve got enough dick to cover my losses so far, though I am still three dicks behind. Thank you for your patience. The game isn’t fun without real prizes, but I do get behind packing them up.

Don’t worry; I won’t lose track. I have all your emails in a folder called “dicks”.

See? How could I ever give this up?

It is now 6:12 PM CDT, which is…

11:12 PM WBT.

Therefore, 6 PM WBT should be 1 PM CDT.

Thing is, last time, I was watching for the DP post to come up at 1 PM CDT, and it didn’t – I think.

I’ll be watching even more carefully this time.

Why, yes, I have a pick in mind that I expect to go very quickly…

This pick went in two minutes or less in five recent DPs, though it lasted over an hour and a quarter in Round 38.

So….I am perpetually considered one of your dicks?

I wonder how I feel about that.

One of my dicks? You’re MOST of my dicks.

How about a Zombie Reagan coffee cup?…maybe a few more zombie characters too?…collect them all! 🙂

…I don’t participate in the Dead Pool (bad karma) but I’d buy some more zombie characters from the store to go with my Zombie Reagan…go international!…Zombie Churchill, Zombie Thatcher, etc…

Maybe you could have a PayPal link on those Dead Pool threads to “buy Stoaty beer and dicks and stuff because she brings us cheap entertainment on Fridays.” Or, maybe the winner could receive dick (as in nothing, nada) because I don’t think a prize is really necessary. Or, maybe it would be cheaper to go with an Amazon.com gift card or something (looks like I can order it for $7.15 + $5.74 shipping = $12.89 and it even says gift-wrap available).

Maybe you could make Photoshop “Spotted Dick Images” for the winner, like LOLcats.

Toss a packet or 3 of scratchings in, and I’m there… cheaper than dick, mayhaps…. and there’s gotta be a plethora of gratuitous scratching jokes…..

I recently discovered your beloved dick on the shelf at the local World Market. I showed it to the wife. She declined the dick.

Steve, the Dick of Dicks. The Uberdick. The Dickfather.

See? I just can’t quit this.

I don’t always enjoy spotted dick….

But when I do….

It is when I get the spotted dick from Stoaty Weasel.

Rumors abound about Fidel – supposedly had a stroke, in a vegetative state. It’s going to be neck and neck between Fidel and George McGovern.

I put that out there because I _never_ get to the CDP early. When Weasel posteses, Tim sleepeses. (6PM WBT is about 1 or 2AM Manila time).

I think a Zombie Reagan coffee mug would be great! He just needs to be holding a can of dick, tho. Zombie with a spotted dick? Makes sense.

I’m quite excited. I will be perpetually refreshing to get in early today! I’m all for the dick this time.

Yeah, I think this is going to be a very short round. Call this one a horse race between Castro and McGovern.

I use the WordPress scheduling feature for Dead Pool posts. Which is why I have no idea what time 6WBT is – I set it up for 1800, and it pops out of the oven automatically.

This is way, way off topic but I need some sage advice and I chose to ask you. Seems I lost the top half of my left fore-finger on Tuesday. Grisly accident.

Can’t fret a guitar like before. Banjo isn’t my cup of tea. Considering slide guitar or mandolin, what with its smaller neck and fretboard.

Thoughts, Dame Weasel?

Would you like me to grow you a new finger?
Still have the bone substrate?

sandman, I’m somewhat tapped into the acoustic-music community; would you like me to post a general “if a guitar player has lost the top half of their left fore-finger and can’t continue with the guitar, is there another stringed instrument they could take up?” query? Or do you already have that covered elsewhere?

Steve, the most interesting dick in the world..

Write a comment

(as if I cared)

(yeah. I'm going to write)

(oooo! you have a website?)

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.
