Re: yup

also, i went to this restaurant tonight where they only had low-carb ranch dressing, and fat-free ranch dressing. so i asked for ranch dressing with extra fat and extra carbohydrates, but they would not give me it. i told them i was deeply offended, and marched out. actually i didn't, because it was like 6:30 and i hadn't eaten all day, but i did complain loudly and shake my fist.

It's good to, y'know, like all kinds of stuff. Being diverse is cool.

It's doubly lame because Von Dutch started as the signature of a brilliant artist who was also a violent asshole with neo-Nazi leanings. The people wearing his name on their puffy trucker hats don't know enough about him either to respect his art or to be horrified by, say, his hatred of black people. And they think they're being all ironic because to them it's just some "white trash" thing they put sparkles on, how clever. Except that it's just stupid and offensive and I hope they die. The end.

So...do the wooden steps, that I had to tote around so Toby could get INTO the truck, count at "something in the back"?

As long as you do not wear a trucker hat with a crop top, you are fine.

You'll be happy to know I don't own a single trucker hat.

I'm fairly certain that there are a number of people who prefer my truck-bed being relatively empty...my doctor being one of them. :)

  • But how about contextually, as a place of torture and humiliation?
  • As in, "I've got to party, the Democrats need me" ?
  • ugh
  • Right. We used to have one, before the networks cancelled everything by Joss Whedon.
  • I prefer "husband-person"
  • Van Helsing?
  • I like huge trucks. I think it's my napoleonic complex coming to a head.
  • Hee.
  • /stares blankly. I see nothing wrong with that. =)
  • In relation to penis size, or just in general?
  • Hee hee hee.
  • But I do! I suppose there should be a little "name a band from each genre" test.
  • ... how about in loving terms?
  • But it's ALL ABOUT me!

    This might not be universal, but when a guy tells me I should read Cat's Cradle before judging Kurt Vonnegut, it ends badly.
