I LOVE OTTERS!!!
Can’t believe Amk wasn’t first on his own post
I have a MUCH faster computer now and…….I feel bad SOMETIMES because I’m a lurker and not a quality contributor. IN MY DEFENSE…ahem….. TOD has been my start-up page for years and I’m obviously LOVING the subject of the site and this wonderful COMMUNITY all the time or wouldn’t have so many undeserved 1sts!
De-lurk RIGHT now Magapie, that is an order!
YES!!!! (What do I do Chips?)
Obey orders, chat!
Hey magapie! Congrats! Thought amk had ya beat! Guess you’re faster than the average otter!
drats. shakes fist @magapie.
I’m so ashamed.
That’s ok. Just pay me 1000 bucks.
How about just dinner ‘n’ drinks on me with me and the fam?
Ok, will you take a money order?
Thx for the invite. One of these days, you will regret it.
You don’t need to shake fists at anyone – simply put ‘morally’ before your ’1st’ and you’re good to go!
Heh, what kinda cheat do you think I am. I am not chips. The blasphemy!!!
Hard to tell the difference sometimes.
Greetings and Congratulations Great Otterific One!
vc, ‘chip’ in.
@TheObamaDiary – Danny. One of these days. http://t.co/Q5B82YZ47V— (@amk4obama) December 04, 2013
That looks like my puppy-nephew! His toy stack is quite similar too!
Chips needs to move to Burbank so I can puppy sit.
I might just do that Tally, at which point: bid adieu to your furniture!
YO! BRING IT!!!! BITCH!
Have you finished Breaking Bad yet????
Ha, no!! Near the end of season three, I adore it, but end up clinically depressed after every episode!!
I know, yo! Aaron Paul is a GOD. And I have a super crush on Walter Jr. FINISH IT!!!
I loooooooooooooooove Walter JR!!!!!
I know! Right???? So SEXY!!! and so TALENTED. and SEXY. Did I say he was SEXY??? Love. Him. And I’m a a little creeped out because I could be his mom.
Do you watch The Blacklist? The guy that plays Skinny Pete has a small role as one of Spader’s assistants – and he’s almost unrecognizable.
Iron proof your home. Only way to save yourself from that marauder.
Me or Danny????
I cannot believe all these puppies have more toys than my grandbabe – am I mean??
DON’T answer that Chips and AMK
YES you are 99ts!
Ahem – what is there not to understand about “DON’T answer that Chips”
Let’s talk Kennedy Center Honorees shall we?

This is great news, Dudette. I really look forward to the Kennedy Center honors this year. They’re always such a great event, although I never paid attention to them under any other president.
Hi jackie! It’s one of the few things I did pay attention to under other presidents!
Aw, a lonely otter.
However, Schmoo Report won the Internetz yesterday:

Well, the squirrel is definitely stuffed. I think the frog is as well. I would pretty much have my mind blown if this was a live action shot.
Three or seven gimlets and you’ll believe it, LL.
I was almost afraid to “like” this post … ya never know what yer walkin’ into around here!
Good evening, amk.
Good evening, Chips.
That should cover it!
I’m loving how everyone is turning up to keep Amk company after his complaint that he spent all of last night talking to himself!
Hey, at least I left him some good music to accompany him.
You did LL! Such an outpouring of empathy for lonely night owl Amk, you are charitable people!
You make the music and I make the dance.
(Psst. VC has just turned up, she is talking to herself on the last post, but she’ll appear here eventually, so delete your offensive comments).
My offending her for the day is already done in the last thread. She’ll be here soon roaring out of the starting blocks.
/talking to quietly to self/ I’ve half a mind to turn around and leave after reading some of these personal attacks.
Then again, the other half wants to know what else has been said about me, so I’ll have to swallow my pride and carry on. #FORWARD girl!
Heh, I got two top billings about talking to myself. Chin up.
Oh, now I get it. Another normal night, eh, Chips?
Just wait till you see some of the pics I plan to post.
Bring it on.
(Ha! I think.)
The Kennedy Center announces its list of honorees for 2013: apne.ws/1d86imK -AB— The Associated Press (@AP) September 12, 2013
2013 Honorees List:
***** **** !!!!!!
Someday I hope you’ll tell us from whence comes the disdain for the-one-who-must-not-be-named. It must be quite the story.
“All five honorees will receive the award at a dinner on December 7th, which will be followed by a White House reception and ceremony at the Kennedy Center.”
Dudette, I think TOD will be down for maintenance that night
Cruel! Just CRUEL!
You have a tune for every occasion, you’re a legend Dooooodlette!
Thankyew, thankyew verry muuuuuch!
Hooray for Carlos Santana! I love this performance with him on the axe!
Nicest Thread Evah. Congrats amk!
Thx hf. I tricked her. Again.
This photo is toooo cute, perfect for our lovable curmudgeon, amk.
From yesterday, an AP description of #Euromaidan.
Considering our current diplomatic efforts with Iran, thought this part of the explanation was fitting:
“‘Maidan’ is obscure to Western ears — it’s a word of Persian origin, which likely entered Ukraine via the Ottomans, meaning ‘square’ or ‘open place.’ However, translating it as ‘Europesquare’ would be technically accurate but emotionally impoverished because both elements mean much more.”
Also dovetails nicely with a conversation on one of LL’s recent gems about “meanness” or the coarsening of US values. My contribution to the discussion was that Americans are no longer taught the concept of a public space, and how to behave in public (they basically act as if they were on their living room sofa, regardless of where they may be). If you ask Americans what a public space is, they will most likely respond with a retail setting (e.g., shopping mall, theatre or coffeeshop).

On tonight’s menu:
Broiled flat iron steak, seasoned with blackened seasoning
Sauteed asparagus tips, in evoo, seasoned with garlic salt and garlic pepper
And, another gimlet recipe when you don’t want to keep a stock of fresh limes:
2 oz. of gin
1/2 oz of Rose’s sweetened lime juice
Make sure you keep the proportions exact. More of Rose’s and it’s too sickly sweet.
And, more cooking tips.
1. Pull your meat out of the fridge and let it get to room temperature before you cook. It cooks better that way.
2. Before seasoning, rinse and pat dry the meat. Again, cooks better that way.
You need to get Danny an au pair who can also cook for you.
Au pair, yes, but a cook? No siree, I’m culinarizing beautifully all by myself
On the menu tonight:
I think I had a biology experiment like that once…
Did it involve growing penicillin cultures?
Truthfully, I think it did!
what is thaaat? A snake sandwich?
It’s deeeeelicious, that’s all you need to know Mister.
Excellent tip: “Always check your meat!”
That’s what my missus says! Har har har!!
So ‘anything goes here’ is the new blog motto? Jus’ checking. Got some doozies to unleash.

Yes, you did. Too late now.

President Obama is on the verge of starting a new war
@USDA Two thousand mice dropped on Guam by parachute — to kill snakes (Video) kuam.com/story/24108238… nbcnews.to/1beSM1a via @NBCNews— The Lovely Plains (@DaRiverZkind) December 04, 2013
As today marked the fourth mice drop atop forested areas of Anderson Airforce Base since September, U.S. Department of Agriculture assistant state director supervisory wildlife biologist Dan Vice explains the process that’s already proving successful at controlling the local brown tree snake population.
He said, “What we’re going to be watching is the oral delivery of oral toxicants out of a helicopter. The process is quite simple. The helicopter is going to make low altitude flights over the forest at relatively slow speeds they’re going to be certified pesticide applicators inside the helicopter delivering the baits out of the helicopter on a time sequence.”
And today, 2,000 dead mice baits were dropped. Each filled with 80 mg of acetaminophen attached to two pieces of cardboard and green tissue paper.
“The cardboard is heavier than the tissue paper and opens up in an inverted horse shoe. It then floats down and ultimately hangs up in the forest canopy. Once its hung in the forest canopy snakes have an opportunity to consume the bait,” he said. And baits are lethal to snakes, killing them within 72-hours. But how about other animal life? Vice says a pig or a dog would have to consume at least 500 of the baits to receive a lethal dose.
“One reason acetaminophen is so effective for snakes is that its very low toxicity to other organisms. of all the organisms in the forest to be concerned about the monitor lizards, the iguanas is probably the one that is potentially at risk but because the baits are hung up in the forest canopy and not distributed on the floor the monitors aren’t going to encounter the baits with great frequency the monitors climb trees but they tend not to feed in trees,” he said.
Nooooooooooooooooooo!!!! I’m going to have NIGHTMARES!!!!!
Ooops! Let me fix that……… Tell Danny, he can dream too
I did a double take…LOL:)
Here is AMK, after realizing he registered 2nd on this post…..
Mug shot for Kitty Krime?
UGH….what a perverse mice-on-snake strategy!
Paging Chris Hayes….this is worse than drones!
WTH is wrong with shipping some mongooses to them? For crying out loud! Poison dead mouse bait?? Really???
I lived on Guam for six months when I was toddler, unfortunately too young to remember the experience, but my parents had great momentos and slide shows of that time (my Dad was in the USNavy).
I lived in the USVI as a kid…we had mongooses…..AND NO SNAKES:)
Yeah, I remember my parents talking about mongooses vs. cobras… that cobras didn’t stand a chance.
But you were old enough to have memories of your island life. I was 2 years old, have no actual memories, unfortunately.
I want to visit Guam & Puerto Rico….. My 50 state/territory bucket list. 23 down………. many more to go!
Arapaho, I meant to ask you about your avatar, but I saw this incredible photo while on vacation and saved it….Caulle Volcano erupting in Chile
Whoa, that is some kind of AWESOME (almost as awesome as the Auburn Tigers!).
Spectacular. I recall seeing some amazing photos of that unpronouncible Iceland volcano (began with an E) and lightning storms a few years ago when it made news by grounding European flights.
My avatar is from NatGeo, taken in the state that is home to Magapie and Dakota. Some kind of amazing weather cell over Las Cruces NM.

Chips – the segment between 720 and 1010 would make an excellent, terse, emotional and very well received message. If you have the time to capture it in a separate video it would likely be a really useful tool for many of us to tweet and for others to post to their FB pages and share with their family and friends.
That’s MY President!
I hope AMK is enjoying his special place tonight.
Chips, that picture up thread can’t be Danny in a short while. All the toys were in one piece.
And I feel soooooooo privileged. Ron Fournier actually responded to one of my tweets. I have to go wash my brain now.
Ha, Japa, he favorited my tweet about Charles Pierce’s piece on him, the tool just so desperately wants to be talked about, he’s an embarrassment.
Well basically, his response to my tweet was the most honest thing he has probably ever said. Not sure how this is going to come out

Ok, off to make another gimlet, broil steak, and sautee asparagus. Talk amongst yourselves.
