Morning Discussion

By Alice O'Connor, Feb 10, 2010 5:00am PST "You shouldn't do that," she sighed. "It'll hurt."

"Nonsense! You just need to concentrate." He pulled the trigger and a bullet tore through his thigh, embedding itself in the walnut-effect laminate flooring. She shook her head.

She started, "I did say..." but trailed off as he gritted his teeth, took aim then fired again.

His lower leg flopped to the ground as his thighbone splintered and gave out. He furrowed his brow and went to raise the revolver again but paused. The damned mole on his knee didn't seem so much as troubled by the whole ordeal, let alone removed.

"Ah," he uttered, raising one finger. "No, my mistake. Dreadfully sorry. You're right--it does smart a little. Could you possibly ring for an ambulance?"

The alternate Morning Discussion blurb for today follows: That snow, eh? Tsk! Can't decide whether it's coming or going. Wotta loada old tosh and no mistake, my son.

If you have BioShock 2 chat to chat, hey, here's a dedicated chat thread.

  • This is for all you shackers enjoying the all the beauty that old man winter has blessed you with (a repost). I used to love the winter and snow until I moved to ND (lived there for 6 years). No I can't stand it. This is old, but still funny. It pretty much sums up my feelings on the matter:

    Moving to Wisconsin

    August 12
    Moved to our new home in Wisconsin. It is beautiful here. The countryside is so serene and picturesque. Can hardly wait to see snow covering the hillside.

    Wisconsin is the most beautiful place on earth. The leaves are turning all different colors. I love the shades of red and orange. Went for a ride through some beautiful countryside and spotted some deer. They are so graceful, certainly they are the most peaceful animals on earth. This must be paradise.

    Deer season will start soon. I can’t imagine anyone wanting to kill such an elegant creature. The very symbol of peace and tranquillity. Hope it will snow soon.... I love it here!

    It snowed last night. Woke up to find everything blanketed with white. It looks like a postcard. We went outside and cleared the snow off the steps and shoveled the driveway. We had a snowball fight (I won) and when the snowplow came by, we had to shovel the driveway again. What a beautiful place. Mother nature in perfect harmony. I love Wisconsin.

    More snow last night. I love it. The snowplow did his trick again (that rascal). A winter wonderland .... I love it here!

    December 19
    More snow last night. Couldn’t get out of the driveway to get to work this time. I’m exhausted from shoveling. Fucking snowplow.

    December 22
    More of that white shit fell last night. I’ve got blisters on my hands from shoveling. I think the snowplow man hides around the curve and waits till I’m done shoveling this driveway. Asshole.

    December 25
    “White Christmas” my busted ass. More friggen snow. If I ever get my hands on that son-of-a-bitch who drives that snowplow, I swear I’ll castrate the dumb bastard. Don’t know why they don’t use more salt on the roads to melt this fucking ice.

    December 28
    More white shit fell last night. Been inside since Christmas Day except for shoveling out the driveway after “snowplow Harry” comes by. Can’t go anywhere, cars buried in a mountain of white shit. The weatherman says to expect another 10” of the white shit tonight. Do you know how many shovels full of snow 10” is?

    January 1
    Happy fucking New Year, the weatherman was wrong (again). We got 34” of the white shit this time. At this rate it won’t melt before the 4th of July. The snowplow got stuck up the road and the shithead had the balls to come to the door and ask to borrow my shovel. After I told him I’ve broken 5 shovels already shoveling all the shit he pushed into my driveway, I broke my last one over his flicking head.

    Finally got out of the house today. Went to the store to get food and on the way back a god-dam deer ran in front of the car and I hit the bastard. Did $3,000 damage to the car. Those beasts should be killed. Wish those hunters had killed them all last November.

    February 3
    Took the car to the garage in town. Would you believe the thing is rotting out from all that fucking salt they keep dumping all over the road. Car looks like a piece of shit.

    February 10
    Moved to Georgia. I can’t imagine why anyone in their fucking mind would ever want to live in that shit for saken state of Wisconsin.
