Friday the 13th holds no terrors for Weasel


Now, Saturday the 14th — that’s a different story!

Kindly sacrifice a chicken for me in the morning, my minions.

Will it be the same if I run over an opossum?

What McGoo said – congratulations and extreme best wishes.

Holy cow! Congrats, indeed! Would you folks pretty-please consider opening a PO box so that we minions may send tokens of our esteem?

No kidding – best wishes to you both!!

If you’ve seen the movie _Saturday the 14th_, you’d know how horrible it can be.

Best wishes!

Yay! I’m glad you’re finally letting Uncle B make an honest mustelid of you. 😉

Seriously, I know you two have already committed to one another, and this is just a formality. So please accept my belated congratulations on the commitment, and my heartfelt best wishes for one hell of a formality!

edit: also, I second the manicure recommendation.
edit edit: argh, yellow smiley. I want the winking weasel back.

Woohoo! We’ll be thinking of you W&B.

Meanwhile, the Rodeo Song: “Gotta heater in the truck and I don’t give a fuck cause I’m off to the Rodeo…”

Stopping in Kernville for the Ro-day-o, then up the mountain. 4 feet of new snow.

So, Weasel, I’ll be sacrificing to the Angry Snow Gods.

Oh, hey! I clobbered one on the way home tonight — well past midnight GMT — consider it dedicated!

Is today the day? My invite must’ve got lost in the post. Yeah, that must be it. Just kidding – anonymous angry weirdos from the intertubes are the last thing you want at your wedding. And there is none more angry and weird than me.

Congratulations. I’ll drink a few jars in your honour.

Pheasant sounds good Julia. How do you get your roast potatoes crispy? I par-boil, then cover with English mustard powder and white flour and then bung them in a pan with pre-heated fat and cook for about 25 minutes. That seems to be a fairly reliable formula for crispy, fluffy potatoes.

“How do you get your roast potatoes crispy? “

Use good potatoes (King Edwards, if poss, parboiled). And goose fat (or duck fat) – smoking hot – to roast. I have on occasion used the flour method, but you shouldn’t need it unless the potatoes look a bit soggy.

Back. Everything went GREAT — not a hitch. Weather was good, people enjoyed themselves. I’ve been up since sparrowfart and I’m exhausted, so more later.

Thanks for the good wishes, everyone!

To quote Gene Simmons:

“Marriage is an institution. You have to be committed to it. If that doesn’t sound like a nuthouse, I don’t know what does….” 😉

Seriously though, Congratulations, and many happy years ahead…..

First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes…..the reason why I chanted that to begin with —

Mr. Beans was told by a cow-orker that said cow-orker is going to become a father. He is in his fifties, she is 46. They already have grandkids. Heh.

Whatever is yours… is still yours.

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.
