AP Boldly Experiments With No Space After Period Rule

[via Mashable]

Nice to see that APStylebook is only about a decade behind the curve. MLA! MLA!

@Benedick AEA, AFTRA, SAG, DG.: Heh. Oh-Kay.

Do you mind if I bite offa you and list my past and present union affiliations?

Oh, Jr and friend of Jr took some interesting pictures in the Capitol Museum or whateverthefuckit’scalled. Apparently we have a giant chicken (looks like a chick to me from the pics, but whatever) as well as The Mastodon Skeleton. <– all the others are fakes, natch.

let’s hear it for OUR old union…..
LOCAL 54 !!!!!!!!!
good times…

@JNOV: I thought i was the only proud member of the great US tradition of corruption and kick-backs labor organizing around here.

In other news, puppy chased off her first deer herd the other day. Three white-tailed motherfuckers eating my tulip shoots. They’re all like, “OMG!! WTF, pugs!! Run away!!11”

@Benedick AEA, AFTRA, SAG, DG.:
Ah, the sheer silly bravery of pups.

My late Doxie as a pup once charged a Rottweiler that was sniffing around the yard. She ran right up to it and looked up and up and up and ran underneath the Rottweiler as it merely looked at her. The fierce barks turned into yips as she ran twice as fast back to the house with her tail between her legs. The Rottweiler snorted and merely walked away as my dog cowered at my feet.

Of course there was the time she chased away a German Shepard to the shame of the Shepard’s owners. Until that point I never actually saw a Doxie strut with her chest sticking out that much before.

@Benedick AEA, AFTRA, SAG, DG.: Hey, in the 70’s I was a proud member of Teamsters Local 89 in Louisville for two whole years. I attended one local meeting and now I realize the leadership looked a lot like the bosses in “Casino”. After getting a new job I joined one of the unions for federal employees until my supervisor let me know it would be a very good career move to get out. She was right.

@Benedick AEA, AFTRA, SAG, DG.:
name, we need the name of the puggle.
there are many days i’ve wished i had gotten one, instead of dogzilla. i love her dearly but such a handful! i’m too OLD for this!
i would like to report that Bella can now sit and shake hands on command.
she is so happy with herself, she pees on the floor from the excitement.
we’re so proud.
when tommie told me Thor took 9 months to housetrain, i was aghast. but that’s what it took–9 months. she has had ONE accident in the last 2 months, and was so ashamed, she ran into her crate and huddled in the back. i must be terrifying.

@baked: Penny. Nothing to do with me. I wanted to call her Doom. But I have to admit she is enchanting. Extremely pretty. Very sensible, intelligent and well-behaved. She keeps up a constant monologue of coos and hums and snuffles as she trots about the house. Sleeps through the night and has had maybe three accidents since we got her. She’s at the stage where she wants to put everything in her mouth – not unlike Catt. Loves her crate, loves Satan’s Teddy (from the Martha Stewart Pet Collection: press its tummy and it makes the noise of a woodland creature in its death-throes), loves biscuits, plays with the boxery dog and has generally made herself at home. The dachshund continues in his tragic mode, behaving like a scorned boyfriend. When Penny comes in my study, he leaves.

@ManchuCandidate: Our daxie bosses the bigger dog around and is very particular about who gets on the bed when. I know of a German Shepherd who became famous for having been chased in circles by a deer.

@Dave H: You can’t work in showbiz unless you’re in a union. Can’t be done. Ask Bill O’Reilly or Huckabee. But I don’t mind. When I was working it paid my health and established a pension.

OT – Our President is speaking in Paris now on “all necessary means” in Libya. It looks like Obama will be speaking from Latin America on the same subject shortly after she finishes.

EDIT: To bring this back OT – Any thoughts on when we will formalize the more common usage of “all necessary means” for the archaic term “war”? Is that an AP Stylebook or Oxford English Dictionary question?

Ha!!!!!! You see that? I cross the finish line first!!!!!

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: Oh right. Of course. Well done. So proud. Is there nothing you can’t do?

@baked: Yup! Local 54 — as mobbed up as the casinos!

@Benedick AEA, AFTRA, SAG, DG.: Heh. I was about to spell out my plans w/r/t the union, but after learning that I’ve been googled by a coworker (one that has no “authority” over me), and that said coworker printed copies of the google results ADD: and distributed them throughout the office, I’ll keep all sensitive info in the clubhouse.

@Benedick AEA, AFTRA, SAG, DG.: Heh. Good doggie! Lot’s of dog pics going up on FB soon.

@libertarian tool: Isn’t “by any means necessary” codified somewhere? I’m serious, and I’m not talking about Malcolm X. (“All due/deliberate speed” is a fucking joke.) Not that it’s cool, but it’s always been code for “We plan to fuck you up worse than you already are.”

@Tommmcatt is with Karin Marie on This One: You’re a winner, no not a loser, every fucking day!

@JNOV: Good God. You sure work with a bunch of bitchez. It sounds like Heathers, Inc.

@Benedick AEA, AFTRA, SAG, DG.: I wear the red scrunchie. They just don’t know it yet.

::whispers:: Did our pool post get pulled?

@SanFranLefty: Wasn’t there one about the tourney? I tried to log on, but I couldn’t get in.

@JNOV: Click the linque at the top right that says “Friday’s Loser”
