Happy New Year, atc. I'm with ya.

However, Best New Years Eve evah this morning. Skyped the kid on Okinawa about 5 minutes before midnight over there, just to wish him well. He had a bunch of guys in his room and asked, "Mom, you want to watch the fireworks with us?"
Me: "Ummm, yeah."

Precious boy held his laptop up to his open window and we watched the fireworks together at Naha. All the while, he and his buds were yelling, "FUCK, YEAH! HAPPY NEW YEAR!" And then he said, "Oops, sorry mom." I chuckled.

Preheat oven to 350F. Place the sweet potatoes around the possum. Bake covered for 1 1/2 hours. Baste once or twice with the marinade from the pan as the possum cooks.

Kind of pumped today. I had given up hope of finding another complete AR
for my kid (Who loves my stag) and the M1A I have been wanting since
forever. Went to my local gun store bought the Binelli M2 tactical, told
them jokingly hey if you ever get an M1A let me know. put my name in
their book. I go down to buy ammo for the M2 at Wallyworld a few miles
down the road and get a call from Reds (The gun store I just left) I am
there within 2 minutes swoop in and by a Stag Model 2. While Im there,
Red comes in and I make some offhand comment about how I'd be in heaven
if they just had the M1A. He tells me, well we just got one in at the
North Store. I got them on the phone right then. So if things go as they
should I have an M1A match tomorrow morning. Excited!

Collard greens are one of those foods you either like or you don't. There ain't no middle ground.

In my humble experience, they are nearly never cooked as long as they should be, rendering them a bitter, green torture. Once you have had them prepared CORRECTLY, and you see what kind of gyrations and incantations are necessary to prepare them properly, you will wait for NYD with anticipation every year.

And beyond that, they are pretty damn good for you, health-wise.

I was invited to a party and I know my sister's libtard brothers-in-laws will be there. We got into a screaming match last spring (too damn much to drink) over the Walker recall. I ended up yelling that the recall would fail, the SCOTUS would knock down Obamacare, and Obama would surely lose the election. Well, I got one right.

A teaspoon of vanilla extract works well, too. I use some way cheap vanilla substitute, which works fine in most drinks.

Cooking protip: double the amount of vanilla in all recipes for much better flavor. Either modern tastebuds are too jaded, or modern spices are too artificial/stale to taste the way they should.

My money's on stale/artificial spices. A spearmint sprig from the garden in freshly brewed tea at my grandmother's was a sharp jolt on a hot summer day. Chewing gum ain't in it.

299 Fuuuuck.....D'oh Boy showing off his latest (and damned well better be last) tat. I hate the damned things, and just told him I'll personally fly to his base and skin him alive if he gets another one. Now he's got one on each bicep. Dammit.

It's a good job too. Something that I can build on. Goal is to start my own deal. I am already talking to someone about that. Probably looking to venture out on my own this time next year. Truth be told I am tired of working for other people. Time to take the plunge.

Also been listing stuff on eBay. Still trying to get eBay to zap a really nasty negative Feedback from someone called ***hospitality. Their item never arrived and I refunded their money. And they still zapped me.

I got a 20 year old who got one on his eighteenth, and another, and another. Wifey, who is the sweetest, gentlest thing ever to be imagined, was so blood-boilingly pissed that she put the word out that she was writing him out of the will.

Anyway. They are everywhere, on everybody, and "in style". I am sure plenty here in the Horde wear them.

I have one, just one. A lion on my back. If I had it to do again I would not. The hardest explaination was to my kids. "Why did you get a tat Daddy?" I couldn't tell the truth, "Your Daddy was a stoned drunk idiot running with a bad crowd." Instead I told them it was the worse peer pressure ever and I screwed up.

314 Kid's first tat was Eagle, Globe and Anchor. You couldn't sling a cat outside his base without hitting a tat parlor. Husband and I sucked it up and shut up.

This last one is an ode to the kid's love of classic rock. I'm sure copious amounts of alcohol were involved. He's kept the tats within Marine Corps standards by them not being seen under his short sleeved tees and shirts.

New Marine regs are if a tat is visible under your tee or uniform, you cannot make officer. And the Corps won't take a recruit with visible tats.

The old school DIs often have full sleeve tats.

Ugh.

Buy stock in companies researching ways to get rid of the things. What's kewl at twenty can be a liability at 40 and just damn ugly at 60. Not a lot of good options for gettin' rid of the things. Huge market opening up someday.

Along the same lines, I used to laugh during 'recruiter's day' at Purdue. All the goth students and other colorful types in staid suites with empty holes all over their faces. Not a pretty sight.

Go Clemson! My late dad's alma mater, from back in the day when it was a
military college. They had an actual live tiger as a mascot. Dad said
one time they were playing USC and someone tossed a live chicken in the
cage. Blood, feathers and mayhem ensued.

You will notice that The Gamecocks still have a live mascot and the Clemson Tigers do not. So what really happened?

True story: I once worked for a place making lasers for tattoo removal. They went under when one patient got shocked due to a mis-wiring and sued.

Posted by: BackwardsBoy, who did not vote for this shit. at December 31, 2012 09:39 PM (yiIja)

325 Tobacco Road, I am no fan of tats, but the worst self-mutilators IMO are the idiots with holes in their eyelobes big enough to fit beercans and discs and friggin' dinner plates or trash can covers. And when they're not wearing anything in their ears, their earlobes practically reach their collars. "Do your ears hang low? Can you tie them in a knot? Can you tie them in a bow?" Nowadays some people can. Really attractive.

327 Yeah the tattoo fad is now strong. And with our 'youth' culture, even some of the older troops are getting the tribal designs and such.

Do any Marines still get the meat tags? IE their dog-tags tattooed on their body?

And we are already seeing products marketed to remove tattoos. For one woman I saw I hope it works when she decides. Her whole upper arm a swirl of orange and blue.

Posted by: Anna Puma (+SmuD) at December 31, 2012 09:41 PM (fx1PU)

328 OSP, we do what we do. My 20 year old, in college in Boston, is
convinced he'll never make a dime in the music business he's studying for. Probably true. He bought a German tatoo machine and is
teaching himself the art. Wifey and I were mortified when we heard, and yet...
Everyone has tattoos these days. Really. Young people anyway. Education,
or lack thereof, is no prerequisite.



I told him if he can find a business, like I did, and be independently
employed in this bad day and time, legally, that I could never argue with it.

Posted by: Tobacco Road, waiting on his ham and collards at December 31, 2012 09:41 PM (4Mv1T)

329 Tobacco Road re your son. I hope he knows about the health codes that apply to tattoo machines. And is merely using oranges for test subjects right now. Bad thing about the tattoo parlors is the usual customer base, very scary customer base.

330 I'm eating spaghetti and meatballs. I cooked the spaghetti fresh, but the sauce and meatballs are leftovers that I heated in the microwave. I made it from scratch, though, and it's pretty good if I do say so myself. I found the recipe on the internet somewhere. One batch makes about 7-8 servings, so I only have to make it every couple of months or so.

Jack Klugman was in several episodes, and I always thought that he bore a strong resemblance to Lee Harvey Oswald back then.

About a year ago I bought the complete 28 DVD set when it was on sale. Those shows were shot on black and white film, and the detail is amazing. It's truly HD. It's kind of funny that today we can see the episodes in much higher quality than the first-run viewers could on their 1959 TV sets.

Posted by: rickl at December 31, 2012 09:51 PM (sdi6R)

338 Well, Tobacco Road, we had our ugly and idiotic fads in the '70's and '80's too, but I was able to just toss out the plaid baggies (ugh - could there be less flattering pants? Those pants made even thin people look like fat asses.) and let the poodle perm grow out. It's a lot harder and more painful and expensive to remove tats or undergo plastic surgery so you don't go through life looking like a basset hound.

Posted by: toby928© for TB at December 31, 2012 11:16 PM (QupBk)

340 Yes, Clemson does indeed win. I have a tiger tat on my right shoulder. The world-famous Crow in Hampton Roads did it 20 years ago.I have 4 tattoos from 22 years in the Navy. Odd thing is, I didn't get nary a one during my first enlistment beginning in 68. Got all of them in later years. As to the collard greens, season with Christmas hambone and add 1/4 of a cabbage shredded. With blackeyed peas, okra, rice, cornbread, and porkchops, the only thing left is vodka. That's how old S.C. geezers do it in East Texas on New Years Day.
