Truer Words Never Spoken

In the waiting area for my flight to Krasnodar there are some scary people queued up for standby seats, and I am seeing the truth to a saying I read on the Intarwebz not too long ago.
"Never compliment a woman on her mustache, no matter how magnificent it is."
I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
Politeness suggests neither course is correct.

Happy @#^%!*ing Thanksgiving


JAX  ->
IAD  ->
VIE  ->

Then two lovely nights at Отель Терем.

It's not a bordello.
I think.

Film at 11.


Wardrobe Malfunction: Olympic Torch

I see they have perfected the art of setting torch bearers on fire...
Typical Russian quality hardware.


Pissing People Off At Dinnertime

What a great idea for Leftists:
Go ahead and discuss O-Care with the fam when you tuck into dinner today.

Nothing says "giving thanks to God" more than an asshole proselytizing about depressing, socialistic redistribution of hard-earned wages and a huge government failure with people who will, on Friday be your former friends and family.

(If it doesn't work out, you can always fall back on the old stand-by and insist that people talk about world hunger as they enjoy their meal.)

Girls Are Assholes...

...At the bar. (Sometimes they're worse than guys...)

I've met the girl on the left...
Don't try to buy her a drink.

Sunday Monday Music Interlude

Sorry- I was busy yesterday...

Feeling my way through the darkness
Guided by a beating heart
I can't tell where the journey will end
But I know where to start

They tell me I'm too young to understand
They say I'm caught up in a dream
Well life will pass me by if I don't open up my eyes
Well that's fine by me

So wake me up when it's all over
When I'm wiser and I'm older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn't know I was lost

I tried carrying the weight of the world
But I only have two hands
Hope I get the chance to travel the world
But I don't have any plans

Wish that I could stay forever this young
Not afraid to close my eyes
Life's a game made for everyone
And love is the prize

So wake me up when it's all over
When I'm wiser and I'm older
All this time I was finding myself
And I didn't know I was lost

Didn't know I was lost
I didn't know I was lost
I didn't know I was lost
I didn't know (didn't know, didn't know)

As Luc Opined:

...nom nom nom nom!
Friday was our all-company Thanksgiving feast...
The Big Hat fried 7 turkeys and I roasted a small (35 lb) pig.
I started the fire on the Caja China at 5:15am, and the pig was done by about 9:30-9:45am.

Lots of great covered dishes, especially the desserts...

Time to start picking the pork...

Yes, there was some sampling done in the name of Quality Assurance...
And it was amazing. 

The biggest challenge was keeping the bystanders from nibbling away at the finished result...

Thes was about 2/3rds of the feeding masses... 

A good time was had by all, even Yours Truly, despite the 4:30am arrival time...

Sure Is Dark...

Job title: Sr. Technical Project Manager. 17 years seniority.
And I arrived at work at 4:30am to start roasting a pig...
You'd think that by now I'd have minions to do this kind of scut work.

Weekend Plans

Wondering if this might be a good place to go motorboating this weekend...

TGB - working on my breaststroke, just in case.

12 Gauge Porn

A couple-ten days ago my man Borepatch was lamenting that he hadn't been to the range in nigh on a year...
And while it hasn't been quite that long for me, it has been a while...Need to fix that soon.
And it's been a good long while since I put up some gratuitous shooty porn.

Time to remedy that right now...

Hold on to your butts, y'all...
Nothing says 'I love you!' "Don't fucking move" like a member of the Armed Services holding a 12 gauge on target.
