At least we still have this:



Ooo, Perry Bible Fellowship!!!


This is gross, so stop reading if you're sane: I was going to change my signature to say "eat to poop to eat" to make fun of my admission that I've eaten while shitting before to make up for sleeping in before work, but then I realized that that would suggest I eat shit. So, it's going to remain an in-joke that no one who knows me online will get. (If you worked where I work, my signature would be hilarious.)

One of my co-workers practically lives at the strip bar I'm always posting photos of. Easter is coming so all of the strippers are using their bunny-themed stage names.

I'd give my left nut to see Ann Arbor build a 21st century version of this:

"Eat to poop to eat"......vid, I think you need to get some spray paint and tag that in big colorful lettering all over T-Bay.

But the internet told me that there is nothing to do in Thunder Bay!

.....Well then you better get the ball rolling. You must do your part to make Thunder Bay the chic, hip "place to see and be seen" on Lake Superior.

I don't think anyone in Thunder Bay wants to see or be seen. It's too embarrassing to let others know we live here.

Several nights in a row now, at 8:05 or so I get a toll-free call from the same number.....LEAVE ME ALONE! Whatever you're selling, I don't want it.

Indian people call my work quite often, asking for the business' previous owner because they want to buy it. When we ask them what the business does, they say they don't know, they just want to buy it.

A few weeks ago, I got one of them and the "phone number" started with T and had at least 20 digits after that. It was weird.

I just went through my incoming calls for the last few days and they called 4 nights in a row (even Sunday) all at 8:04 or 8:05 PM. But call at other times too for a total of 9 calls since early last week. 1-800-251-5850.

Have you been to Regina?

There's no geographic reason for the city to exist. At least Thunder Bay is a port.

You just described Phoenix, if not most metropolitan areas in the mountain west region

^You have a lake. We have a fetid creek and a slough. At least we made the slough deeper and aerated it recently. Keeps the stench down a little.

Yeah, Regina is a bit of an oddball. And isn't the lake and slough fake?

Regina only really exists as a place for people to rest while they're going to Calgary.

I like Regina, so it's a nice place to rest. Saskatoon is the best city in the province, though.

Any city that ends in "toon" has got to be fun.

Are you talking about Roosevelt Lake northeast of town, or any one of the man-made lakes that are centerpieces of the local golf courses?
