The Polling Pit / PorcFest 2012

I'm terribly curious who I'll get to meet IRL this summer.

General / The Snatchel Project
« on: March 21, 2012, 07:46:41 PM »
From HappyPlace.com:

In the latest brilliant counterstrike against the GOP's Vag Offensive, The Snatchel Project is encouraging craftswomen to send their congressmen knit and crocheted bags, pouches and decorations in the shape of their favorite ladyparts. Nothing scares a gynophobic congressman like when they open a box and discover what they think is a constituent's lovely knit hat or scarf, only to pick it up and realize they've touched their hands upon the filthy, evil uterus they've been fighting so hard to destroy. The site includes patterns and links to teach you how to use your knitting needles to make your own womb (while knitting needles are still used for just knitting).


Serious Business / Shameless Self Promotion (a.k.a. begging for $$)
« on: November 17, 2011, 07:48:01 PM »
I may be a "heartless" libertarian who doesn't want to give up my hard-earned money to government redistribution programs, but I do gladly give both time and money to private organizations I think are doing good.

Girls on the Run is one of those groups. I've been a coach to 15 girls each season for three seasons now, helping them get ready for their first 5k race. The goal is to get elementary school girls taking a more active role in their health and happiness through running. Sure, there's a lot of talk about feelings, and a bit more pink glitter than I'm generally comfortable with, but the program does do something I LOVE - builds self esteem through reaching for and meeting goals.

I will be running the 2012 Georgia Marathon as a Girls on the Run SoleMate and am raising money for the Atlanta chapter. I would really appreciate it if you would follow this link http://www.active.com/donate/gotratlantasm/JSandoz and make a donation.

Guns, Drugs, and Crazy Independence Stuff / Halloween!
« on: October 21, 2011, 11:10:13 AM »
Costumes, cakes, reassembly of the guillotine are all in the works around here.

Thought it might be fun to see what other folks are up to.

Granted, if you don't have kids, you probably haven't even started thinking about it yet, but that doesn't mean I won't start happily taking and using ideas from here... because I don't already spend way too much time on Pinterest, Craftster and Instructables trying to come up with something good for this year's D&D / halloween bash next Sunday.

Posting this here because it needs to be said, and posting it on Facebook would be problematic... unless I wish my daughter to become the neighborhood pariah amongst her catholic, methodist, baptist and jewish friends. (I'm already the weirdo who has been known to wear anti-government shirts to my 'mandatory volunteering' in the school media center and talks with enthusiasm about shooting zombie targets on ladies day at the range. This might push a few too many buttons.)

DL'd Penn Jillette's book from Audible.com today. Holy bacon cheeseburger! Penn reads it himself, and it's a bit like hanging out listening to friends... if your friends were really clever and knew a lot of really funny / interesting people.

If you're not reading it, you should.

General / WooHoo! I learned something new today!
« on: April 20, 2010, 05:27:10 PM »
This is what I was doing while listening to Monday night's show. It occurred to me it might have been better saved to be worked on tomorrow, while listening to the 4/20 show, but I'll be painting my 3 ft tall smoking caterpillar wicket, which is close enough.

And... yes, I did post these just because I'm so damn pleased with myself. Time to brush the sawdust out of my ponytail and grab a beer.

General / What does the junk in your car say about you?
« on: March 20, 2010, 03:15:57 PM »
In cleaning out the truck today, I realized the running & cycling have even improved the quality of the junk in my armrest. No candy bar wrappers or fast-food receipts. Race numbers, medals from 3 of 4 last 1/2 marathons, chapstick, and mini protein bars.

Still some garbage - dead gum package, empty Glide stick, a few receipts for gas, groceries, fabric store and a bike rack for the truckbed.

General / The definitive Definitive thread.
« on: March 01, 2010, 02:49:58 PM »
Have seen "definitive" thrown around a little too much here lately. I've had little flashes of the overuse "inconceivable" by Vizinni, and cannot help but think "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

de·fin·i·tive  (d-fn-tv)

1. Precisely defined or explicit.
2. Supplying or being a final settlement or decision; conclusive.
3. Authoritative and complete: a definitive biography.
4. Biology Fully formed or developed, as an organ or structure.

General / Halloween - Jack-o-lantern Pictures

It's that time of year again...

General / Recipe Thread
« on: March 03, 2009, 09:23:19 PM »
I'm going to be rounding up recipes and links which have been posted on the BBS to this one thread. I'll also include other BBS comments and reviews with the recipes.
If you have a secret family recipe you want to share, a request for a particular dish or type of food, or have come across a perfect dish online, this is the place to post it.

Please post the ingredients and instructions in an easy-to-read format. Photos would be great too, if you have them. Just scale them back to a reasonable resolution/size. There's a chance someone might be in their kitchen, or at the store, and want to look up something from the thread. (Yes, I am talking about me.)


One more thing... Give your recipe a title of some sort.

The Polling Pit / Recipe Thread?
« on: March 02, 2009, 05:19:51 PM »
We've had a few food related threads, so how's about an official home for recipes?

I had fun with Lindsey's photo & link to the black & white cookies a week or so ago, and a couple of us tried it because of her suggestion.
Shaw & Brasky have brought up beef stews and other hearty meals. BonerJoe sounds like he knows his way around the grill.
Blackie and d_goddard have some great Vegan/Veggie ideas. And, there was the jaw-dropping, heart-stopping bacon/sausage roll.

Full recipes, or links to recipes on the web you've tried, along with any notes about things you changed, or wish you'd changed.

The Polling Pit / Color Preference?
« on: July 31, 2008, 10:06:24 AM »
And, because I'm sure you're wondering where I'll keep my iPod...

The Polling Pit / McCain's pick for VP?
« on: February 16, 2008, 11:13:23 AM »
The Democratic primary is still too close for me to pay attention to the names being thrown out as potential VPs for either Clinton or Obama. That will have to wait, but the GOP speculation should be fun. If you have a great suggestion, I'll be happy to add it to the poll.

I should point out the VP pick will change nothing for me - I'm still NOT voting for McCain.

The Polling Pit / The Death of New Year's Resolutions
« on: February 14, 2008, 02:10:09 PM »
It's mid February, the time when most folks have gone beyond losing their enthusiasm over any resolutions made, and have given up entirely.

I've noticed there are fewer and fewer joggers and cyclists on the trails. The lines at the drive-thru windows are getting longer.

It's been very apparent at the YMCA this week. Each day, there are more treadmills open than the day before, and there's no wait for the weight circuit at all.

The Polling Pit / Super Tuesday & Ron Paul
« on: February 04, 2008, 10:42:24 AM »
I just answered another political robocall. I usually for a minute or so, and hang up when I stop being amused.
This time, though, I listened to the message all the way through, because it was none other than Rep. Ron Paul. It was a reminder to his supporters to get out and vote in the Super Tuesday primary states, and gave a number to call for local poll information.

I'm excited to be off to the polls tomorrow.... who's with me?
