I need new reading glasses

I must be getting old. I completely misread this want ad in the local paper. I actually thought being experienced in RAVING, I might have a future job as a SCREED OPERATOR:

  1. Oh my God! It's so good to see you're back blogging where I can find you! I love the Mother Effingby's Maledictions too, great stuff! I'll try to visit more often, now that I know you're here.

    (Please excuse the 'oh my God!' at the beginning, I don't usually say such things except when quoting or imitating others, but in your case I really mean it, like, 'oh my God, thank You!' for inciting one of my favorite of Your revolutionaries, way better than Rosa Luxemburg! Keep writing. You keep me alive.)

  2. Hey, Romanos, welcome back to Amerikkka! We are quickly sliding into the insane season. There's way too much anger and stupidity in the world. I just need a moment to scream, sometimes! God Bless you, Brother~!

  3. Love you, Sis, and let me scream with you. This roller-coaster we're on might just be taking the steepest, darkest plunge ever...yyyyyooooooowwwww!


Don't just sit there, say something!
