I’m here! I’m here!

Whew! I didn’t think you’d see me tonight. We switched ISP’s and Company A dropped us before Company B picked us up, so we’ve been internetless all day.

You don’t realize how much stuff in the house relies on the wifi network until you ain’t got one.

We’re all sorted. Now I can treat you to low-effort shit-posts I have planned for the holidays.

I have one more day of work, and then it’s off until January 2. I have promised myself two weeks of indolence and gluttony.

But I couldn’t neglect you, my imaginary friends who live in the computer. Not at Christmas. So I figured I’d repost some of my favorite images from 2017.

Let’s start with this one from January 11, showing our Home Secretary (and local MP) Amber Rudd getting her heel caught in a street grating. I thought it would make Uncle B smile.

I haven’t looked ahead, but I feel sure I can find enough to make it to 2018. Talk about anything you like in the comments, though.

That vid made me smile too.
Enjoy your two weeks!

We’ll just sit here, in the dark, alone, whispering to ourselves until you come back.
Watching you play your video games from the bit shrouded shadows and eavesdropping on your wifi usage.

Oh, I’ll be here. I’m just not going to put a lick of effort into anything. Well, after I get out of work tomorrow, anyway.

Don’t worry bout us. We’re (I’m) easily amused, and especially so during the holiday season when the liquor flows like wine around here.

By the way, do the Brits drink eggnog? Do you use fresh eggs from the coop for it? Enquirer minds want to know

I’ve been ill and haven’t had any coffee or wine since October 30. Husband has been sick for five days and I have been sleeping on the sofa. I’d sleep in the other bedroom, but I’m afraid I wouldn’t hear him if he called out during the night. I can’t decide if I want coffee more, or wine. On the up side, I’ve lost 25 lbs.

I have an important question related to the gif. When important women wear business pants suits, why do the always expose their ankle?

When an important man wears a business suit, he always wears socks to hide his ankle.

But not important women!! They always have that bare ankle/foottop hanging out. It’s a glaring omission too. As if they aren’t completely suited up or something.

Any ideas? Sure, when a woman wears a dress, we expect her to show ankles/foot tops. In fact, it would look weird if she wore socks with a dress and heels, right?

Can anyone imagine a man in a business suit with bare ankles/foot tops? Of course not. Men know enough to completely suit up. But not important women like this MP. Or even Nancy Pelosi.

Anyone know?

Ah, obviously you have been blessed by never having been in California. Business suits with sandals raise no eyebrows there.

Well, I actually live in Kali. Not too far from where babe watch wa filmed.

I think we have a law against men wearing sandals unless they have especially hairy toes. Or dirty feet. Or both. But I know what you mean!!!

To tell the truth, I’m in kind of denial I even live here. It’s too painful. When I think of women in pants suits, I’m thinking “normal places”. Not Kali.

Holy shit, Deborah — a 25-pound illness. That there is sick. I do hope you feel better for the holidays.

I have one last egg from my girls, Some Veg, and I don’t know if I dare crack it open. They stop laying in October and don’t pick up again until March. It has to do with light levels. If I put a lamp in their run, they’d lay all year.

They have egg nog here, but not in the dairy section. It’s always pre-hardened. See: Advocaat.

I’m up! I’m up! I’m ready for my last day…

Tom, I’m not sure how important I am, but I don’t wear cropped pants. This is partly bc I think it looks stupid anyway and partly bc being short limits your pant/skirt length options.

Well, obviously men have to hide their ankles due to their extreme arousal potential. Duh.

Or it’s teh evil worldwide cabal of sock manufacturers.

If there are no socks being worn – how are they to be lost in the wash?

And if they are not lost in the wash, will this not directly affect maintaining an adequate tax base population in the state of Missyersocki (one of the unspecified additional 7 states discovered during the election of 2008).

We’ll be forced to admit thousands of unvetted and undocumented sandals from places south of the border to maintain the tax rolls so we can keep our phoney baloney jobs!

Amber looks like one of the actresses, the one who plays a middle-aged career woman who discovers she’s really a lesbian, on the BBC/PBS Last Tango in Halifax.

Don’t worry, we won’t really be imaginary until comments are taken over by AI bots! 🙂 Have a jolly good holiday.
