No Go on Checkpoint Cheesehead

“Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on Monday dismissed as ‘ridiculous’ a letter from a Democratic state Senate leader who suggested a meeting ‘near the Wisconsin-Illinois border’ to discuss the state’s budget impasse.” [CNN]


would have made great video

A GOPer leaning pollster shows there is an increase of Teabag/Koch intolerance in Cheezland.

TJ/ Warner Brothers just canned Charlie Sheen for good.


@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: Lawsuit to follow.

Hey, Catt, my neighbor just gave notice at the Mouse. There’s a very nice job opening, and the record shows that you can stand working there..

@Dodgerblue: Oooh, I think I heard about this, actually. VP level, right?

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: Head of online marketing. Don’t know if he is a VP or not. Lives next door to me.

@Dodgerblue: It’s shaking up over here, everyone is terrified.

Personally, I look at it as an opportunity to put some distance between myself and verifiable psychopaths, but that’s just me. My luck I won’t be laid off anyway.

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: It sounds like a very cool job, but I don’t know who he reports to, what pressures he is under etc. BTW he is the only gay man I’ve ever met who is restoring an old car.

@Dodgerblue: Most of us restore them in secret.’

I am not at that level, I’m afraid. I’m not sure I’d want to be, here.

If you want to be light, tight and right about it: Checkpoint Asiago (I-94 crossing near Kenosha), Checkpoint Brie (US 14 near Harvard, Ill.), Checkpoint Cheddar (US 12 near Richmond, Ill.) and — the most likely rendez-vous — Checkpoint Double Gloucester (I-90 / I-39 crossing at Beloit).

You’re welcome.

Incidentally: I have a family member who’s pimping Scott Walker for POTUS. I just told him that Scott Walker could talk to Colin Firth for twenty minutes and not figure out that it wasn’t David Cameron. Everyone, all together now: “SECURITY RISK.”

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: @Dodgerblue: Hey kiddos, I’m going to be in El Ay next week. You all free for a Stinque Up? Should I round up Cassandra too?

@SanFranLefty: Oooh, let’s do it. I keep meaning to invite Dodger for a bike ride on the weekend, too.

ADD: And, humiliatingly, both you and Dodger did not join the Scrabble game I sent through my Ipad. Not to air my tsuris in public or anything….

@Dodgerblue: I shouldn’t think he could win. Apart from anything else he must be uninsurable by now.

@chicago bureau: Excellence in commenting.

@SanFranLefty: Hey sistah, I’m gonna be in LA March 19th-24th. Any chance you’ll still be in town?

@SanFranLefty: Grrr. I’ll be in Weeks Bay, Alabama thru Thurs night.

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: Never got it. Pls resend. My iPad won’t let me play FB scrabble — I rhink it’s a Flash thing.

@Dodgerblue: You have to download the app. It is worth the $3.50, trust me.

@¡Andrew!: We are SO getting together at MJs or something.

@Tommmcatt: I hope we can get together! I’ve asked Nojo to send along a note. Check your e-mail and lemme know.

Geez, you all are having fun and planning more fun, and here I sit thinking I maybe have a fucking kidney stone.

Can I haz new life, please?

@karen marie: I’m simultaneously working on two term papers and a 45 minute presentation on modern Ru$$ian business kulture. It’s not a glamorous life, comrade, I promise.

Oh hey, Andrew and any other Seattle area Stinquers/Lurquers: check out “Hardball” playing at Annex Theatre until the 24th. The well-reviewed story of a budding young journalist turned political opinion bloviator. It’s getting good reviews from my jaded theater friends too, so it’s probably honestly good. I’ll be seeing it on Monday. It’s right up the Stinque alley, if you know what I mean.

@IanJ: I’ve got to figure out a way to see that! I loved the nuns with guns in Penguins, btw.

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: Oh, that’s because we play Wordscraper, not Scrabble (TM). There are more triple and quadruple word tiles. I’ll fire up a foursome – you, me, Dodger, and baked. Girls against boys. ADD: Game started, your move. And it’s Dodger’s move in the Scrabble game, but I don’t like that app as much as Wordscraper.

P.S. Re Stinque-Up – send me a message at sanfranlefty [at] stinque [dot] com, I don’t seem to have your address.

@¡Andrew!: Nope, I fly back to Ess Eff on St. Patrick’s Day. You coming through NorCal or just visiting El Ay?

@Dodgerblue: Rats!

@SanFranLefty: It’s Hell LAy-only this time. Hopefully someday soon, I’ll get to SF.

@¡Andrew!: Well, Homofascist is in Ess Eff in two weeks, I feel like I need to go warn the Castro of his impending arrival.

@SanFranLefty: Wordscraper is a higher-octane game because of all the 3x and 4x word squares, but Steve Jobs won’t let me play it on my iPad.

@Dodgerblue: Don’t blame Steve Jobs, blame that Zuckerberg kid. The FB iPhone and iPad apps are horrible.

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: The only iPad Scrabble app I see is ten smackers.

Oh, and I forwarded the message to your Yahoo account. Presuming that’s still working.

Apropos of nothing, but since you fuquers are planning get-togethers without me, I would like to announce that I just found out a cute neighbor of mine has allegedly had a crush on me for three years. I had no clue whatsoever. Because I am dense. My mind … it is blown.

Can I say how much I hate chest colds? I got a whopping 4 hours sleep and a coughing fit woke me up.

@ManchuCandidate: You see, this is the difference between east and left coast stinque. We here in the real world come on with the morning songbirds and make pithy comments about life – colds – politics – don’t ask – and art – they’re trying to work out how they can afford to fire J Taymor, good luck with that – all for the honor of Stinque and to make noje look good over at Crooks and Liars. (Just kidding, noje always looks good) The west coast, on the other hand, after lolling in bed all morning comes on and it’s all party-party, “Ooh, I like your hair, do you like my shoes, are you coming to the sleepover?” Makes me sick.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: Speaking of blown… dare I offer congrats?

@ManchuCandidate: Word. Week old chest cold /and/ Maoists, over here.
@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: it was meant to be. Good on you.
@karen marie has her eyes tight shut: Lots and lots of water, and this too shall pass.

@Right Reverend Benedick: Ha. I am awake, teeth brushed, stubble razored off, because my dog needs to be walked and my wife isn’t going to do that, is she? Unlike you old-money New Englanders, I do not have a wooded estate into which to release my mutt (yours are purebred, no?) for a romp and a massive shit — we turn square corners at the ends of subirban streets and God forbid I should forget the poop bags.

@Dodgerblue: Actually I’m off to the nearby state park with the pack. A lot of the snow has gone but it’s still beautiful.

The dachshund still won’t talk to the puppy. If she comes near him he goes upstairs and hides. Training, however, is going very well. She’s already taught the OH how to fetch and carry. The two mongrels are all “whatever” except the biggest does let the puppy kiss him and steal crumbs from his bedtime biscuit.

@ManchuCandidate: Feel better. I like your hair. Do you like my shoes?

@Right Reverend Benedick et al: Thank you. I was pretty sure I had scared everyone in my neighborhood association.

@Right Reverend Benedick: Ic you want to come, just ask. No need to pout.

@SFL. So we can still get together, right? Maybe just you, Cassandra, and me? We could play Barbies.

@Dodgerblue: Meh, how early do you get up? What kind of bizarre self-flagellation would cause you to be up before me? Good lord, I was up at 7:00am! The butt- crack of dawn!

@Right Reverend Benedick: Well, that’s you. You have always been a bit of a Jansinist flagellant. Look at your haircut, for example.

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: There’s a 6:15 spin class at my gym that I like, and I do the dog walking in the morning. I have more energy throughout the day when I do this, which is good given the energy-draining industry whiners I have to deal with every day.

@Right Reverend Benedick: I’ve been working on Dodger since I met him. It’s been a tough slog…

@Right Reverend Benedick: Overshadowed, if you will, by the young, athletic, sweaty, scantily-clad women. I make sure not to wear my glasses to class, to cut down on the gawkery.

True, that would get me up… out of bed early. I once nearly ran a guy over on the Y’s running track after momentarily gawking at an advanced aerobics class that was nearby (the victim/idiot stopped to stare.)

Benedick has been on a roll the last couple of days.

@ManchuCandidate: Benedick has been avoiding doing his work the last couple of days.

@Right Reverend Benedick: Hmm. And Spiderman is looking for a new director. Coincidence?

@Dodgerblue: I’m not sure all the sequins necessary for a Benedick production can fit on a spiderman costume…

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: Maybe Spidey could have a hot crime-fighting partner like, for instance, Gabby Reese (I posted a pic of her yesterday). She’s very sequin-able.

@Dodgerblue: I was thinking more along the lines of a Kato- type character. You know, we could put the sequins on a jockstrap if it is big enough…

@nojo: See, it’s ideas like that that are the reason you are in charge here.

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: My mind would make for a Very Special Episode of Hoarders.

@nojo: Speaking of which, did you see the one with the rat guy?

Scroll down to the video!

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: Hey, I set one up with you for June 8, 9 or 10 in PHX, so there. Alla you SoCal Stinques are welcome if you want to pay SWA to get you there. I’ll be there at some tribal casino for a conference.

Longest stake out I ever heard of on the neighbor thing. Reminds me of the deal with my college girlfriend who was going out with another. I just waited her out for two years. Water dripping on stone style. She sent me a very beautiful letter just before she got married to someone else a few years later.

/back in Santa Fe, back at work.

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One:
tommie…it’s YOUR turn in the game lefty set up. let’s GO !!!!
