Except for the fact that I can't force myself to stop being a Republican, I'm in full agreement on all these. Actually, I agree on number 7; I'm just helpless to stop. Do you suppose there's a 12-step group?

Soccer (Football) is cool. But like others are probably wondering, Guy would have a much LONGER list that just this. What about potlucks?

C'mon, who really wrote this post? Has someone abducted Guy? Did those aliens that gave Cartman an anal probed come and take you away too? Are you somewhere out there with the grays?

Have you ever tried playing golf? It's bloody difficult. I had a friend who was a chopper pilot in the army before he retired and took up golf. I've been told that learning to hover a helicopter is the most difficult thing a person could ever learn to do. He said that learning to hover was easier than getting good at golf.

I don't get much of that other stuff, either. I imagine it all revolves around self esteem issues and not having much of a life.

#9 - I get a kick out of those "de-motivational" posters.

Like the one that says something along the lines ... If a simple poster is all it takes to motivate you, you probably have a job robots will soon be doing.

There was a day when your post would have been things that piss me off. What happened to the guy who like in the movie Network just wasn't going to take it any more. You know...sweating the big stuff like the way people have to count out the $.97 cents in nickels and dimes at the grocery cashouts...or people who purchased vehicles that don't have the turn signal option...or people that would be challenged enough to chew gum but yet think they can drive and talk on cell phones at the same time. Come on Guy...let it out. I just know it's chewing you up inside...the big stuff. The puke patrol...the gag reflex...the poetic justice and the mushroom like beauty of the water back splash hitting you where you live when you take a perfect dump...

Donna, you are brave to admit it, but you are from Missouri and that's how they roll out there.

Loopy at least you didn't admit which on #7 so you must feel some remorse.

Beth, I'm mellowing...what can I say?

Weese, and here I thought you were a granola.

Auntie, you are well on your way to becoming a soccer mom. I do get pot-lucks, I just don't enjoy them. And don't complain about the short list. I told you on Thursday that I was out of topics and I was ready to shut down the blog. I squeezed out two more posts just for you.

Darev, Golf was invented for two reasons. 1. to give people good weather to watch on TV when it,s gloomy 2. as a means to ruin a good walk.

Gearhead, I totally get gambling and porno. In fact I did a presentation on bug porn today to 20 fine students.

Walt, I love Auntie's posters.

g, and you admit it. Dude, how come there are so many young republicans around here? You, TH, Cary Johnson. I don't get that at all...

Moose, I outraged out. Tired of fighting un-winnable battles. I guess I'm getting to move to Canada and be polite for the rest of my life.

g, I totally agree on the moose blog. He's even like this on Facebook.

OK, I guess shut down would be too harsh of a statement. I'd keep it up on the net, but I am seriously running out of inspiration.

Moose, though you are Canadian, you have picked up certain traits from all the time you've spent in New Jersey.

And as for #10 I'm not talking about night lights, I'm talking outdoor flood and spot lights and porch lights.

i know TH - he's independent as they get. i've never shied away from my roots. i'm a fearless republican now and still believe in trickle down economics. so lower my taxes and i'll probably spend it locally.

Oh hell no!

What you need is some teef! (using a southern accent)

www.drbukk.com

These could give you some inspiration..a few laughs...get you a pair of these...wear them to town (throw in an accent)...they will definitely give you something to write about...I have tons of stories :)

That, or you could take a pill? Maybe the blue one? Clear out the cobwebs.....

But do not stop blogging!

Loopy, you'll have to take one of my classes some day.

g, I know, and you also believe in a guy that came from a virgin birth, died and was reanimated. Republicans are funny.

Ginger, I'm kind of liking the cob webs at my age.

Gearhead, I kind of figured you weren't a real social person the first time I saw the gate at your farm, though you do get an Xmas card from Lars every year so you must get out some. BTW I think I'll be there on the 4th.

i also don't get people who dress up their dogs, eating popsicles and ice cream cones in winter, relish, hearts of palm, deep-fried candy bars (or oreos, or cheesecake or any of the things that are wonderful on their own), vegetarians who wear leather and people who don't answer their call waiting (what's the point of having it, then?)
