The arrival of the midweek pinnacle is here and upon reaching the summit, it's downhill from here. Yes, my little fireflies, it's Hump Day and tonight we're off to AREA 51 for an evening of frolic and festivity. Well rested this week, I go forth into the social world this evening prepared to interact with my pals at happy hour and solve worldly problems to numerous to mention (such as).
The final destination is yet to be determined, however the current Plan A will be Lakes Cafe and Pub. As per my normal preparations, I am assimilating an Alternate Plan B as a back-up. Normally, during the week, it's only necessary to have 2 plans. On weekends, especially Fridays, it never hurts to have an alternate Plan C in the back of one's mind. Ya just never know, especially since tomorrow's twice postponed engagement with the lovely Rocio is still tentatively on the calendar.
Odds And Ends: Billary Clinton handily defeated Barack Obama-Lama-Ding-Dong in yesterday's Pennsylvania primary, garnering 55% of the vote. The question that keeps coming into my mind is, who cares ! The Women of the Texas Polygamist sect continue to set fashion trends, the latest being a unibrow sported by some of these beauties, to go along with their flashy hair-dos and unique designer dresses that remind one of quilting. Darwin would be astounded. George Bush is running around like a madman, trying to put together some sort of legacy after his term expires. Too bad he didn't think of that that when his term began (oops, I forgot, "Bush intelligence" is an oxymoron).
The Pictures: They look normal at first glance, but there's something a little different about these pictures today. Take a gander (or a goose for that matter).

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Author's Note: They're a little bawdy today, so read at your own risk (go ahead, you know you will anyway).
Two drunks had just gotten thrown out of the bar and are walking down the street when they come across this dog, sitting on the curb, licking his balls. They stand there watching and after a while one of them says, " I sure wish I could do that!"
The other one looks at him and says, "Well, I think I'd pet him first".
A man limps into a bar with a cane and alligator. The bartender stops him and says "Hold on a second here - you can't bring that animal in here, they aren't allowed!" So the man says, "But my gator here does a really cool trick..."
The bartender says "Well then, lets see!" So the man whips out his manhood and shoves it in the gator's mouth. He then takes his cane and starts bashing the gator in the head with it. A crowd gathers around and everyone is astonished when he pulls out his manhood without a single scratch.
He looks around at the crowd and says, "Does anyone else want to try?" An old lady raises her hand and says..."Sure, but don't hit me with that stick."
That's it for today my little sugar babies. More tomorrow.
Stay Tuned !
