Son of Gacy

May 19, 2006 at 1:02 am (Uncategorized)

I think it's safe to say that John Wayne Gacy was a freak. He was convicted and later executed for the rape and murder of 33 boys, most of whom he buried in the crawl space beneath his house. Those dead boys remained beneath him for most of a decade, until Gacy was arrested in late 1978.

The subject of much scrutiny in criminology circles and the focus of several Hollywood movies, Gacy became known as the "Killer Clown" because of the many block parties he attended in a clown suit to entertain and entice the kiddies. Gacy was not good publicity for merry makers as a rule. Almost anyone with a painted face and comical clothing these days is regarded with at least a modicum of suspicion. I mean, what are they hiding under that paint and the day-glo colors?

So Gacy is dead but his loathsome legacy lives on. One wonders what spawn might have descended on the world if Gacy focused some of his attention on women with the intention of reproducing. It's a moot point, of course, Gacy being a clown of the decomposing variety these days. Still, if you should wonder what Gacy's offspring might have looked like, take a gander at the McDonalds ad running in India.

There is something both pedophillic and acutely evil about this image. If it makes you feel hungry for burgers and fries, I'd wonder about your mental state. I might also be interested in taking a look in your crawl space.

Then again, maybe not.

    Did you write this today because Clarabelle died? I thought of you when I read about that — I wondered, does Mark feel just a little bit safer now?

  2. LaFlamme said,

    You know? It's funny. I don't like ice cream trucks. Everyone assumes that, because of that perfectly normal and justifiable fear, I probably don't like clowns, either. False! I have no problem with clowns. I think they're creepy, but… have you seen my room lately? No, probably not. But if you had, you'd know that creepy is sorta my thing. But the point is, I have no problem with clowns, and it one wants to come over and drink with me, I'll pour him a glass. Clowns are perfectly fine people. Or things. However they should be classified. But baby clowns? Nooooo, that's just not a good thing. Baby clowns probably have three sixes scratched into their scalps somewhere. Baby clowns will appear at the foot of your bed in the wee hours of night, or maybe they'll just hide underneath and wait until you let your foot dangle. One way or another, they're gonna be out to get you. Baby clowns are evil from the get go. I should probably get some garlic and board up the underside of my bed. Wouldn't hurt to get one of those funny tonic bottles, too, and maybe a horn. You never can be too…
    Holy shit! Was all of that out loud?

  3. Linda said,

    Yes, get a horn. As I was saying about Clarabelle — and jeez, I APOLOGIZE for assuming or misremembering a clown phobia, I WON’T MAKE THAT MISTAKE AGAIN YOU CAN BE SURE!!! —

    Ok, I’m getting a grip here. Clarabelle, whose last name happened to be Hornblow. You of course are far too young (I say that oftener and oftener, maybe I should get some elderly friends to save myself some air time) to remember Howdy Doody but it’s the second TV show I ever saw. I was three or four years old and one of my uncles was minding me. All my uncles liked looking after me for the first 20 or 30 minutes, then they got tired of my endless chatter. So anyhow my uncle took me to the VFW and parked me in front of the TV while he had a beer or three. Howdy Doody! I was in love!! My father bought a TV a little while later, and I’ve no doubt it’s because I bugged the living shit out of hiim about Howdy Doody.

    Bob Keeshan (Captain Kangaroo) was the first Clarabelle, but I think that was before EVEN MY time. It’s the last one who died this week

    Glad you don’t mind clowns. Sheesh.

  4. Linda said,

    And by the way Mark — oh, is creepy sorta your thing?? Who’d have guessed.

  5. Martha said,

    Mark.. again.. did you get the emails I sent you of articles from the Dallas Morning News?

  6. Bobbie said,

    I think it’s Mark’s wife who has the thing about clowns. Please feel free to correct me since it’s too early for me to be up and I’m going back to bed now.

  7. jarheaddoc said,

    Mark, isn’t India one of those cultures where arranged marriages exist? Maybe that’s an actual kid, with some weird medical condition that none of us can spell, never mind pronounce, and the kid is betrothed to Ronald McDonald. I’m assuming the child is female because its hands are in plain view, not touching the nether regions of its bodies.

    Clowns never bothered me. I have this fear of going to a funeral for someone I never really knew it life, ya know, that pay your respects to the family thing, and having the dearly departed sitting up and looking right at me and asking, “Who the hell are you?”

  8. Mainetarr said,

    ohhhh, it’s a McInfant. How much you wanna bet that pic shows up in 16 or so years in that kids yearbook? It will make him/her look like a McAsshat.

    But all clowning around aside, it is creepy. Clowns sort of creep me out, but they don’t terrify me or anything. Not like birds and frogs do. But some clowns just look like child molesters in disguise. Gacy will forever be a McBastard, even as he rots.

  9. jarheaddoc said,

    MT, you’re in your usual form way too early today. McAssHat. Barney and friends, that’s what scares me. That’s one fat, scary bastard. He needs to have Richard Simmons chase him down the road to lose some weight. Here’s a link for serial killers:
    http://home.cfl.rr.com/hagar/serialkillers.htm. Beleive it SFW, Linda

  10. jarheaddoc said,

    Oh, The Burger King, too! That commercial where he’s in bed makes me think of the Mel Brook’s Movie, History of the World, and the line ‘it’s good to be the king!” There was also, “Gangbang the queen!” and “Sire, you look like the piss boy!”

  11. K2 said,

    Me no like clowns or ice cream trucks.

  12. jarheaddoc said,

    School buses were never the same for me after watching Freddy Kruger drive one. I always knew he was going to deliver me to that geometry teacher who knew I didn’t understand the damn subject.

  13. Linda said,

    Thanks for the rating, jd, but I’m home now for 10 hours or so. I think I’d better sleep some of them.

    That Burger King is seriously creepy. I saw him in the paper today, hope I don’t have nightmares.

    Also in the paper today, I saw that Mark’s Wednesday story got the wheels moving to get that necklace back. (I’m too tired to explain — some of you know what I mean). Way to go, Mark!! Was that one of those moments when you think you might not need the gag ring in the office after all?

    And K2 — it’ll be OK, you’re safe here.

  14. K2 said,

    In the bunker? Well, okay, if you say so.

    A baby clown’s shit-filled diapers. Now there’s a thought.

    So, how is everyone’s Seasonal Affective Disorder? *BANG!* *splattering of gray matter*

  15. AO said,

    Seasonal Affective Disorder? SEASONAL AFFECTIVE DISORDER? WHERE’S the sun? Not only am I starting to go crazy with all of this rain, I’m home with a puking child. I’m fine, I’m fine. Yup, I’m fine. The only thing that could be worse is a visit from the King.

  16. jarheaddoc said,

    I am almost afraid to ask, but who do you mean by the King? Elvis is still very much alive in the hearts and minds of many, AO.

  17. K2 said,

    Phew. I’m glad the King was here so I could blow his fucking oversized head off. AO, I’m with you, D-Sis — I’m going M-E-N-T-A-L.

    And isn’t it amazing how when you get older, fun is a very scarce commodity? It’s shares have gone up exponentially since I had kids. Cripes, I’d settle for just one day alone on a hammock with a good book. Desperate times are these.

  18. K2 said,

    jd, the gayer than gay Burger King.

  19. Bobbie said,

    The sunshine is in Colorado today, AO. It’s going to be in the high 80’s to low 90’s today. Sorry to hear about the puking child. Hopefully things will get better as the day progressess.

  20. Mainetarr said,

    I believe she is referring to the creepy, pedophilic looking Burger King.

  21. K2 said,

    I had an old friend who always called it ‘Burger Fling.’ I dunno, it still gives me a chuckle. And are their fries the worst, or is it me? I eat there maybe once a year anymore.

  22. Martha said,

    I hope I get a dry enough day today to cut my grass, after I go buy a new mower.. I have a neighbor who thinks he’s king of the neighborhood who reamed my daughter out yesterday because my yard looks like “a gypsy camp.” I think once its done I’ll ask him if he’d like to come inspect

  23. Mainetarr said,

    Is Meatball or T-man sick?

  24. jarheaddoc said,

    Martha, try this on him: set up a tent, get out the gaudiest clothing and worst perfume you can find, invite him over, and offer to read his palm. I envision him doing this with a look of utter confusion on his face. roll your eyes back and murmur something that sounds like a dead language, and say, “you’re an asshole.”

    Or, buy a grass eating animal, then take it over to his house and let it shit on his lawn. Free fertilizer, a not so subtle message, and your grass is cut.

    This weather up here is making me even more cranky than I usually am. My doctor told me to take another pill, but I’m already at toxic levels on the damn things anyways. For those of us who have seen “airplane”, please fill in the blank: “I guess I picked a bad to give up __________.”

  25. AO said,

    It’s the Meatball whose doing the Linda Blair act today. Has been since she woke up this morning. Right now were having a lull in the action.

    K2, A day in a hammock with a good book sounds like a good idea. All by myself. But, first I need to go out and buy a new one. Damn squirrels ate my old one. Oh, and never forget to have a bucket of beer handy!

  26. AO said,

    Oh, thanks for the good wishes, Bobbie. ENJOY your good weather for me!

  27. Bobbie said,

    I’ll do my best to enjoy the day for you, AO. I’ve got errands to run (can’t forget MIL’s scratch tickets!), but first I have to get someone out of bed. He was still up at 4 AM when the dog needed to go out. I guess I could always send you a photo of the nice weather here-that way, you’ll remember what sunshine looks like.

  28. Mainetarr said,

    Geezzz AO, that sucks. Tell Meatball I send her my love and hopes she feels better soon. Poor peanut. Maybe the squirrel that ate your hammock is the same one you found in the pool. Ahhhh sweet revenge. Serves the little bastard right for eating your hammock. I just want the rain to stop so that I can make another fire outside and sit by it and read. Not like I am asking a lot here. Geesh. I am starting to grow webbed feet. Flucking rain.

  29. Mainetarr said,

    Hey Bobbie, I saw Colorado on the news this morning. They were showing the super max prison where they sent the towelhead terrorist. Looks like a lovely place. At least those bastards get warm weather.

  30. AO said,

    Thanks MT, I’ll pass along your love to the Meatball. She seems to be coming around. Hasn’t puked in about 2 hours!

  31. Herb said,

    Well a new blog, a new day. I don’t like clowns or ice cream dealers. Martha, I would invite a few of my mexican friends to park on my lawn and stay a week or two, that way your neighbor will have something to bitch about. How old is your daughter? If she is a real minor, the next time the bastard says anything to her, I would tell her to start screaming, and act like he is going to abduct her. That will shut the bastard up. As the song goes, the more people I see the more I love my dog.

  32. Vanessa said,

    two pump chump~is that you? you never answered me last night

  33. Mainetarr said,

    AO, I am glad to here she is coming around. Poor kid. Nothing worse than spending the day sick. Let me know if you need me to bring anything on my way home.

    Getting back to the topic at hand, why would anyone be afraid of an ice cream truck? Is there a movie about an ice cream truck I don’t remember?

  34. Herb said,

    Vanessa My Love, I doubt that I am the Herb you know, however, if you will send me a nude photo of yourself, I can make up some pretty good stories. As for Two Pump chump, I need at least four, and besides I answered you in the last blog Urine for a Good Time Girl, No sorry, I am wrong, Urine for a good time. However, if you send me that photo, I will write some good ones that you can brag to your friends about. The Real Two Pump Chump is probably resorting to Penthouse Stories.

  35. jarheaddoc said,

    What about the mailman?

  36. Herb said,

    Linda, I remember Howdy Doody and Pinky Lee. Clarabell at the time I think was Capt Kangeroo, or went on to become Capt Kangeroo. No disrespect intended, but old girl, you and I probably have more in common than the rest of the kids, but alas, I am still a kid at heart. MT I am still waiting for the calendar with nude photos of the Fly Girls.

  37. K2 said,

    Well, there is the ice-cream van that trolls for kids around the Pleasant St. environs. The other day, we were at my mother-in-laws over there, and my boy saw the mad rush of kids and wanted in, so we went up to the 1974-ish van, and while the man and woman inside were friendly, the far-worse-than-normal exhaust from the jalopy nearly choked us to death. It was weird — buying a tasty treat while breathing in Class A carcinogens. Yum.

    And then my son took two licks of his treat, and said he was done. A whole dollar down the tubes.

  38. K2 said,

    Cripes, the ‘runaway bride’ left the poor sap fiance who stuck with her after her crazy escapade? I think he needs more counseling than she does. Of course, what that woman needs is too rude to post here.

    http://www.cnn.com/2006/US/05/19/runaway.bride/index.html

  39. Herb said,

    K-2, I don’t think he is overly endowed with brains or common sense either. Sorta like the guy who can’t take a hint in a bar. What part of NO don’t you understand (laurie Morgan)

  40. Mainetarr said,

    Herb, you will be waiting for a long long time for that calander. Bulldog is MIA and there is no way in hell AO or I would do it, so you are shit out of luck Herb.

  41. AO said,

    Wow. The Fly Girls. We all need to get together and have a party. And, who ever said anything about a nudie calander? First I’ve ever heard about it. And, MT’s right, there’s no way in hell I’d do that. Cripe, I have a hard enough time posing for pictures with my clothes on, never mind ever posing with them off! Eww.

    Thanks for the offer MT but, I think I’m all set. The Meatball is up and, playing. I think she’s turned the corner.

  42. Herb said,

    Oh well MT and AO, I guess I will have to find your old file pics from the old blog, and use a CD of Penthouse beauties for a cut and paste session. I guess two redheads and a blonde should cover all twelve months. Wait, if Vanessa sends me hers, I will have four to play with. God I missed you flygirls.

  43. Linda said,

    Look at all the company I missed, sleeping the day away while you all visit. I just did a speed-read to see if there were any deep secrets revealed that I might need to know. So nice to hear that the sun’s shining somewhere.

    jd, goats, definitely goats on Martha’s lawn.

    Herb, nice to have company closer to my own age but — Pinky Lee? No, can’t remember him.

  44. LaFlamme said,

    McAsshat. I like it. I like it a lot.
    Corey’s not afraid of clowns. She married one.
    Martha, I did receive the prostitution stories. I’m keeping them close. Very close.
    If we have another weekend of rain, I say we form a cult (okay, a new cult) and come up with some bizarre suicide pact.

  45. AO said,

    If it does rain for another weekend, I say we just have a party. God knows I could use one.

    Linda, Glad to hear somebody got some sleep!

  46. Martha said,

    Well, my grass is cut.. tomorrow I weed whack.. then I think I’ll ask the “king” if he’d like to come inspect it… This is the same guy whe last summer, had half the neighborhood over screaming in their pool right outside my bedroom window when they knew I was trying to sleep.
    You know how it goes.. I’m supposed to have consideration for them, but heaven forbid I should ask for the same in return.

  47. Linda said,

    I think we could find something more fun than suicide, AO’s right.

    I’m sorry for you all if it rains but — I’ll be working or “on call”, and my husband is away so I also need to take care of myself and the house, so I won’t know if it’s raining or sunny. Well I’ll know but not care.

  48. Linda said,

    I’m gonna go get some of those movies pretty soon.

    Martha, why don’t you weed whack right before you go to work some day next week? what would that be 1 a.m.?

  49. AO said,

    Okay, then, a party’s in order. Mark, I think you should host it. And, make sure you have lot’s of DT on hand.

  50. LaFlamme said,

    I should have DT on hand by Saturday night. Whitehouse wants to try some, too. I’ll pick up a bunch. I hear they come in wine sized bottles. I also hear the liquor store in Somerville is in a ghetto. This should be fun.

  51. Linda said,

    Are you going to Somerville for the DT? Not alone, I hope

  52. LaFlamme said,

    Yeah. It’s the only liquor I found that has it.

  53. Linda said,

    Bring MT and one of her guns. Oops, not to Massachusetts, not a great plan.

    I know I’m contradicting myself — I said the weather isn’t going to bother me — but I swear to God it’s thundering and lightning over here. And the rain is HOSING down. That can’t be right.

  54. Herb said,

    What is DT? Where is Sommerville? God I have been away a long time.

  55. K2 said,

    Mark, could you score me a couple crack rocks while you’re they’re? If they’re out, meth is fine. But I want the fine crystals, this time — none of that crushed glass like you scored last time.

    Bottles of the DT. You soon-to-be lucky bastard. So pleasantly balanced, delicately spiced, and throat-warmingly alcoholic. Pure nectar.

  56. jarheaddoc said,

    Linda, a term I learned in the military was ‘goat smelling ass’. It was first used on me after being in the field for quite some time without anything more than a whore’s bath. If a goat’s ass smells as bad as I did, I say we send her a flock for her neighbors.

  57. K2 said,

    Oh, and I hope you choke on it. *grimacing in envy*

  58. K2 said,

    Somebody remove Britney’s ovaries, please. . . .

    http://www.cnn.com/2006/SHOWBIZ/Music/05/19/spears.ap/index.html

  59. LaFlamme said,

    I’ll grab as much of the killer brew as I can. We really should have a blowout and get everyone stupid on Belgian beer. Me, I only vaguely remember the taste of the shit. I ended up in some dive pool hall with a girl who claimed she was an old friend. By the end of the night, she was.

  60. AO said,

    I think somebody should just remove Britney, period! What is the big deal with this girl? I have no idea why she’s so famous. What an idiot! And, the fact that she’s pregnant….again! Just boggles the mind.

  61. Linda said,

    jd I’ve met some goats who smelled VERY bad. I had a dog once who was terrified of goats, and a good friend who had a goat in his front yard. it was always an adventure to visit him. My dog would cower and whine, the goat would — what do they do, bray? no that’s donkeys, but you know — and it would take all personnel to keep the menagerie in check. (I started this paragraph by writing “I’ve known some goats who …” but didn’t want to give a wrong impression so I edited)

  62. jarheaddoc said,

    And she probably took your $40, too, didn’t she, Mark ?

  63. Linda said,

    K2 I didn’t read the whole article, I get enough CNN when my husband is at home, but didn’t I see somewhere that she had her baby facing the wrong way in the car seat, on top of the in-her-lap fiasco? She’s really a menace.

  64. jarheaddoc said,

    Britney spears is graphic proof that stupid people not reproduce. She’s also graphic proof that being stupid in public isn’t a crime if you have money. How much intelligence does it take to fasten the kid into a seat, whether it’s a car seat or a high chair. Maybe she should have spent all of her millions on lessons that teach common sense instead of that boob job she claimed was a growth spurt.

  65. jarheaddoc said,

    Okay, Linda, how about this? We get the goat, we’ll load it up with the DT until it’s staggering, then turn it loose on that guy’s lawn. I can guarantee you that the cops and paramedics who show up to his house for the complaint of a seizing goat that’s shitting itself will only make them laugh until they pee their pants. I can honestly say that’s one call I haven’t been on. Yet. This is Maine we’re talking about.

  66. Linda said,

    trouble is, jd, I don’t think you can teach common sense. It’s not like boobs, it’s more like, say, height — you have it, or else you don’t

  67. LaFlamme said,

    $40?? I could have had her for $40??

  68. Linda said,

    Yay, I love the goat plan. But isn’t it in Pennsylvania? Road trip! with a drunk carsick goat

  69. K2 said,

    She’s graphic proof that our twisted society made her a multi-millionaire.

  70. Linda said,

    Mark, it was probably a different, much more exclusive girl than the one jd remembers

  71. K2 said,

    Britney, that is. LaFlamme, what’s the pool-hall broad’s number? . . .

  72. LaFlamme said,

    1-800-STD-CRABS

  73. AO said,

    My, OH, MY! Isn’t it funny how we change the subject from Gacy to hookers with funny phone numbers.

  74. jarheaddoc said,

    Linda, it’s obvious you’re buying into this plan, but we get the goat drunk DOWN THERE. The road trip with MT and AO will stink enough, with all their BS.
    And as far as those women go, it’s an economy of scale thng, LInda. I coulda had one at forty, or forty at one.

  75. jarheaddoc said,

    I have to sign off for the day, as my work becokons. Please feel free to abuse me even moreso than usual now that I am not going to be around to even feebly attempt to defend myself. Road trips, sick goats, hookers with pagers: I sense a bad movie. I have a camera.

  76. Linda said,

    Bye jd. Isn’t work a bitch sometimes?

  77. AO said,

    Road trip with MT and, AO? BS? I only predict a good time! The only Bull Shit would be coming from you, JD. And, where are we going? To the ghetto in Mass. or, to PA. with a drunk goat?

  78. K2 said,

    Woah! there, jd. You bash those ladies at your own peril.

    Now get to work — those gloryhole cocks don’t get sucked by themselves, you know.

  79. Herb said,

    Please, Please, WTF id DT and where is sommerville?

  80. Linda said,

    We stop in Somerville for the beer, then carry on to Martha’s in PA. Wait, would there be any beer left to get the goat drunk with by the time we get there?

    The plan needs some work. Or what the hell, we could wing it. they must have beer in PA and the goat’s probably not a connoisseur like Mark

  81. Linda said,

    Mark’s got a party to go to with his editor friend on Sunday Herb and he has a tradition of bringing beer that relates to the theme of his book. Book is called Delirium Tremens so he’s looking for a beer by that name that he remembers from some previous bacchanalia. He tracked it down in Somerville, Mass which is not a very safe & upscale neighbourhood.

    That’s all I know! got it right did I?

  82. AO said,

    Herb, DT is a Belgium beer. Sommerville is in Mass.

  83. K2 said,

    Herb, I’ve come to realize that you’re a couple fries short of a Happy Meal, but DT is Delirium Tremens, a rare Belgium beer; and Sommerville is near Boston.

    That is all.

  84. AO said,

    I tried like hell to find that beer for him. You just can’t get it here in Maine. I think it’s too potent. 9%. I’ve got to try it!

  85. Linda said,

    Mark’s done the hard part, tracking it down. If we take a stinky goat with us to Somerville, we should be safe enough at the bottle store

  86. AO said,

    Nothing like a trip to a bottle store. They’re such fun! 🙂

  87. K2 said,

    I predict full-scale nuclear war.

  88. Herb said,

    K-2 and you sir are a pompus ass., but thanks for the informaiton.

  89. K2 said,

    Get off my lawn, boy.

  90. Asshat said,

    Does Herb stink, K2? Is his name really a sick joke by his parents?

  91. LaFlamme said,

    Okay, the glory hole comment made me snort a peanut outta my nose.

  92. K2 said,

    I feel like I’m in the second half of ‘Full Metal Jacket,’ and Asshat is that stuffed animal on the ground. I want to pick it up, but I saw the film — the guy gets blown to bits.

  93. AO said,

    K2, if your lawn is anything like mine, you wouldn’t know if anybody was on it. I’m going to have to go out and buy a tractor with a big blade on it just to cut my grass.

  94. K2 said,

    Yeah, cripes, I AM a pompous ass — that line was funny shit, man.

  95. AO said,

    How’d it feel, Mark? Must be worse than snorting soda out of your nose. Hope you didn’t eat it after it came out.

  96. LaFlamme said,

    Why not? The five second rule applied.

  97. K2 said,

    AO, yesterday I had to bag my sugar-cane-looking front yard on my mower’s highest setting — with my 1-year-old on my back a la Pocahontas. Took me freakin’ hours. I can’t have clumps everywhere, you know. (Mmmm . . . clumps.)

  98. K2 said,

    It snot a problem, really.

  99. LaFlamme said,

    Everybody nose that.

  100. K2 said,

    All right, time to get back to the olfactory.

  101. AO said,

    I’ll bet it was a lot saltier the second time around.

  102. Linda said,

    AO, I’ve been imagining it and I think soda might be worse really

  103. K2 said,

    AO, you’ve been watching too much porn.

  104. AO said,

    Depends on the size of the nut. Can you just imagine if it had gotten stuck? I can just imagine him in the ER trying to explain that to a doctor. Ha.

  105. AO said,

    I know, K2. I’ve really got to cut back.

  106. LaFlamme said,

    I just had a bunch of reporters gathered around my desk to look at the latex mask with front urinal and ring gag. How do we get news out around here? We don’t know.

  107. K2 said,

    Oh. Your man’s uncut. Sorry to hear that.

  108. K2 said,

    A mouthful of piss or an earful of deadlines — is there really any difference?

  109. AO said,

    It’s been a long day, long week. Somebody tell me, is it beer o’clock yet? K2?

    Wow, guess you went ahead and ordered that latex mask, huh, Mark? Are you wearing it now?

  110. K2 said,

    Sister, it’s BEEN beer o’clock for an over and hour. What time zone are you in?!?

  111. K2 said,

    See! I’m slurring my text.

  112. AO said,

    The wrong one, obviously. Why didn’t you tell me when beer o’clock started! I’ve been home all day with a sick child. I would have done the same for you!

  113. AO said,

    Hey!! Slow down, cowboy! It’s still early.

  114. K2 said,

    Hey, my kids are home all day with a sick parent. Ready, set . . . DRINK!!!

  115. AO said,

    That reminds me. I’ve got to take my wine out of the freezer before it explodes!

  116. LaFlamme said,

    I waaaaant some wiiiiiine…

  117. AO said,

    Meeee toooo….sniffle…sniffle….sniffle.

  118. Linda said,

    I’m back from the movie store, I think i played it pretty conservative but that’s OK to start with. Thx for the list Mark, however ungraciously you posted it for me. 🙂 when i get home from work in the morning, after I sleep, I’ll start watching these. If my husband doesn’t come home by Sunday I can go get some more.

    I like having a plan. This of course is only if the goat thing doesn’t work out

  119. LaFlamme said,

    Hey, what did you pick up for flix?

  120. LaFlamme said,

    Since that clown baby is a spooky child, I am not going off topic by asking this: I need a list of children’s songs (This old Man, Wheels on the Bus), that are meant to be cute but are actually spooky. The Muffin Man, is a fine example of this.

  121. Linda said,

    I got The Exorcist (saw it many years ago), Friday the 13th, Halloween, and The Legend of Hell House. Conservative but sound, don’t you think? there were many more that tempted me but I thought that was enough at least, if not too much

  122. Herb said,

    Linda, I think Pinky Lee went off the air in 1953-4. He suffered aheart attack onstage on the show, and that was the last I saw of him.

  123. LaFlamme said,

    Holy crap, that’s a great selection. I had most of those on my Halloween trip to Vermont last year.

  124. Herb said,

    Mark, before the house was torn down, it was wierd to go by John Wayne Gacey’s property and know that all those kids were killed and buried there before they were exhumed. There are some sick individuals in the world today.

  125. Linda said,

    Oh, just a little before my TV watching days. Must have been a traumatic experience for the audience. I remember the first time I saw that Mary Martin Peter Pan show — when the fairy almost died, I cried till I threw up. Sorry AO, didn’t mean to remind you of your day

  126. AO said,

    Don’t worry about it, Linda. I’m about ready to crack my bottle of wine. Not much will bother me in a little while. 🙂

  127. Herb said,

    Trivia: There was another Clarabell on the Howdy Doody Show, Who was it?

  128. AO said,

    Mark, I’ve got to say one of the most disturbing children’s songs has to be, Rock -a-bye Baby. Always creeped me out. I’ve got to put on my thinking cap. It’s been too many years. And, of course, anything sung by Barney is just…awful creepy.

  129. AO said,

    Herb: Captain Kangaroo.

  130. Linda said,

    Damn, Herb. You must mean who played Clarabell? I know there were 3 — Keeshan, Mr X and this Lew Anderson. You have me stumped and I hate that — i’m gonna have to look it up

  131. Herb said,

    No I mean there was another Clarabelle, the Duckbileld Platypus puppet. I could be wrong, but I believe it was named clarabelle

  132. Herb said,

    Here is my old age showing. The rest of the characters were:

    Dilly Dally, Chief Thunderthud, Phineous T. Bluster, Princess Summerfallwinterspring,

    For the life of me I cannot remember the rest if there were any.

  133. Gil said,

    Little bunny fu-fu (bopping ’em on the head)
    3 blind mice 9Cit ogg their tails with a carving knife)
    There was an old lady who swallowed a fly
    Rock a bye baby (Down will come baby, cradle and all)
    Ring around the rosie (not scay by itself, unless your kid knows it’s a song about the plague)
    This old man (knick-knack paddy-whack) – a pedophile song if evr there was one. Some alcoholic old man rolling home and playing “knick-knack” (code for sexual touching?) on my thumb/knee, whatever

  134. LaFlamme said,

    Herb, you’ve been by Gacy’s house?

  135. Gil said,

    Gacy
    32 men and boys murdered and buried under his house and in his yard
    The eternal optimist says, “He wasn’t lazy, and he was a homeowner!”

  136. Herb said,

    How about Lizzy Borden? Heard it on the History Channel

  137. Linda said,

    Herb — Heidi Dooody and Timber Tom. And obviously, Buffalo Bob. I can’t find any mentionof the platypus though. It was the first show ever to hit 2000 episodes.

    Someone’s all over the web site — they already updated it with Lew Anderson’s death

  138. Herb said,

    Yes, out of morbiod curiosity, I also went to the vacant lot where the St Valentine’s slaughter took place. 2101 N. Park Street, Chicago, IL. They claim there are ghosts still there, and a ghost of the dog who was there.

  139. Linda said,

    Gil, are you ever right about This Old Man. Sick

  140. Herb said,

    Linda, I could be wrong, but in my mind I can see that stupid puppet. It seems to me it could fly too. I need my meds. This hurts my head to think.

  141. Linda said,

    Let me do a little research Herb. See if I can fix your headache. You can return the favour someday

  142. Linda said,

    I REALLY hate to break this news to you Herb. But here goes. On Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood there was a family of puppet platypi: Dr Bill Platypus, Elsie Jean Platypus, and their daughter Ana Platypus.

    Could that be it?

  143. LaFlamme said,

    Hey, cool. I’m looking for these creepy songs for something I started writing last night. And as luck would have it, I started with “This Old Man.” I’ll probably use Eensy Weensy Spider next, or Ring around the Rosie.

  144. Linda said,

    A slight correction: Bill was Dr Platypus’ nickname; his actual given name was Duckbill.

  145. Herb said,

    No Linda, I am almost certain the other Clarabell was the Platypus and if am wrong, I apoloigize. I have been serching the web also. Only 50 more pages.

  146. Linda said,

    That sounds great Mark but I think Rock a Bye’s creepiness is more evident that Rosie. IMHO. Unless there’s an infectious disease element in the story, in which case Rosie’s a slam dunk

  147. Linda said,

    I’m prepared to let it go, Herb

  148. Herb said,

    Linda does the Flubadub sound familiar?

  149. Herb said,

    OK, I will let it go, if I find proof, I will bring it on OK?

  150. AO said,

    I guess I’m not as old as I think because, none of those names sound familiar to me. I do remember hearing about Pinky Lee and, his heart attack on the air. I think one of my eighth grade teachers told us about it. She was watching when it happened.

  151. Linda said,

    Sure Herb, Flub a Dub I remember that puppet. HD again

    Mark, BTW, When the Bough Breaks is a book by Jonathan Kellerman, not the horror genre but a pretty creepy villain so there’s another connection for Rock a Bye being creepy

    Gotta run, dammit, going to work in a while. if it’s quiet (which it will be, I trained them so well they don’t need me any more hurrah) I’ll check in.

  152. AO said,

    Have fun at work, Linda. Hope it’s quiet.

  153. Linda said,

    AO, only of interest to people older than you and to childrens television historians. It was a landmark in a lot of ways but that doesnt necessarily make it interesting all by itself

    Bye! really

  154. Herb said,

    Have a safe night Linda, thanks for chatting.

  155. LaFlamme said,

    Yeah, I’ve read Kellerman, including that one. Childhood sickness dramas. Pretty good stuff.

  156. AO said,

    Thanks for the reminder, Gil. This use to be a very popular song with all of my Pre-K kids back in the day!

    Little Bunny Foo Foo hoppin’ through the forest, scoopin’ up the field mice and boppin’ em on the head.

    And down came the Blue Fairy, and she said:

    Little Bunny Foo Foo I don’t want to see you scoopin’ up the field mice and boppin’ em on the head.

    And now I’ll give you three chances, and if you keep it up, I’ll turn you into a goon.

    Little Bunny Foo Foo kept hoppin’ through the forest, kept scoopin’ up the field mice and boppin’ em on the head.

    And down came the Blue Fairy, and she said:

    Little Bunny Foo Foo I don’t want to see you scoopin’ up the field mice and boppin’ em on the head.

    And now I’ll give you two more chances, and if you do that again, I’ll turn you into a goon.

    You disobeyed me three times, so now POOF! you are a GOON!

    And the MORAL of this story is: HARE today, GOON tomorrow!

  157. LaFlamme said,

    Okay. There goes the question of whether or not AO’s drinking yet.

  158. AO said,

    Ha. Not yet!

  159. Mandy, the obit writer said,

    If you remove the McDonald’s logo, the picture could be used as the poster for a very disturbing horror movie.

  160. AO said,

    Okay, now I’m drankin’. What the fluck happend to K2? Has he passed out already? Some Friday night elbow bending friend he is!

    Hey, Mandy! Glad to see you back. I can’t imagine who the hell would allow anyone to do that to their baby. Way too creepy. Kind of reminds me of a baby Pennywise from “IT”. I wonder if that baby…floats….

  161. LaFlamme said,

    So could the pee mask.

  162. Mandy, the obit writer said,

    If I was a person who had never heard of McDonald’s much less knew it was a restaurant, I would be shaking my head in disbelief at this ad. You don’t know what the hell its supposed to be advertising.

  163. AO said,

    Maybe their going to be selling meals for the obese. Baby McMeals.

  164. Gil said,

    A much better ad. I mean if you’re going to have aguy in a creepy mask,, you should at least enjoy it.
    http://www.dailysixer.com/captain.shtml

  165. Gil said,

    Then there’s always this one. Definitely not safe for work Linda
    http://www.ravenstake.com/films/BKBlowjobKing.mov
    Not graphic, just probably to un-PC for most offices

  166. AO said,

    Bulldog HAS to see that ad! That’s her drink. Captain and Coke. Yuck!! but, it’s her drink.

  167. Mandy, the obit writer said,

    If this gimmick is a success, I can easily envision a series of ads involving baby versions of other McDonald’s characters, such as the Hamburgler and Grimace. Then again, why stop there? A baby version of the King from the Burger King ads, anyone?

  168. Linda said,

    Oh no! Baby Burger King, I can feel the nightmares coming

  169. Mandy, the obit writer said,

    It could happen. Not too long ago Burger King ran an ad in which a woman wakes up in bed next to the King.

  170. Linda said,

    OK Mandy now I’m really feeling sick. What’s their ad agency smokin’?

  171. Mainetarr said,

    No more Burger King freaks, please!! Creepy bastards.

    Jarheadoc, you asshat, why you shitting on me and AO? Wait until I see you again, you will pay.

    I want to go to Mass to get some DT, but we have a list of stuff to do around the house this weekend, if it is not raining.

    I just got home from Treehuggers house. I was interrogating him about where he has been lately and he says we are too huggie kissy in here now and thinks we should fight more. I agree, put em up Jarhead, you flucker. Game on!

  172. Mainetarr said,

    Where is everyone? Hellooooooooooooooooo

    I feel so abandoned.

  173. AO said,

    HEY!! Mainetarr you bitch!!! Where the fluck have you been?

  174. Linda said,

    I’m at work. So what?

  175. AO said,

    Mandy, If a woman wakes up next to the King, she’s having one of the WORST flucking nightmares she could EVER imagine! Just the thought of it makes me shiver in fright!!

  176. AO said,

    Linda, Cut out of work and meet all of us at the nearest bar. Okay?

  177. Mainetarr said,

    AO-la. Where have you been? How is the meatball?

  178. Mainetarr said,

    Linda, how is work going?

  179. AO said,

    Meatball is feeling better. She’s watching her Red Sox’s.

    I’ve been home…allllllll…day. Not much happening on this end. Wanna take a road trip to Mass. tomorrow? Ha. But…really…wanna?

  180. Gil said,

    At leasttt she won’t come home pregnant
    Safe for Linda
    http://www.ledger-enquirer.com/mld/ledgerenquirer/news/local/14604918.htm

  181. Mainetarr said,

    Can’t. Got house crap going on if it is not raining. I did manage to mow the yard tonight to save Chris from doing it tomorrow. He is planning on finishing up the porch tomorrow and I will be digging post holes to finish the fencing. I want to try to saw up the remaining left over wood and make a dump run before noon. Then we are getting Milo for a few hours. I think tomorrow night we are going to see the DaVinci Code. I read the book and I am curious to see how much hey distorted the movie.

  182. Linda said,

    Oh boy, would i ever love to meet you at the nearest bar, or better yet, go kick some ass in Somerville. minus the goat . But —

    work’s going well really . We started our new computer system 2 weeks ago. Last night I was here 12 hours and I had to roam around practically force my help on people, they had it racked. Time to cut the cord!!! We promised 2 weeks around the clock and tonights the last night; it’s looking MUCH busier.

    I’ll need to be within pager distance and able to roll in here — reasonably sober — for the rest of the weekend in case of emergencies. How fast do you think I could get here from S’ville? oh shit the “sober” is a deal breaker I guess

  183. Mainetarr said,

I don’t get all the hpe, though. It’s friggen FICTION!! HELLO!!!!

  184. AO said,

    Sorry, MT, but, I can’t get beyond, “Saw Up”. What the fuck?

  185. Gil said,

    A new one for the ASSHAT link Mark. So much for heroes
    http://www.wsmv.com/Global/story.asp?S=4927714
    And trying to post this got me a “Slow down Cowboy”

  186. Mainetarr said,

    sorry, me french. Cut up with the saw? That sound better??

  187. AO said,

    And, I’ve heard DaVinci Code SUCKS!

    Don’t forget to call me if you have Milo tomorrow. I wanna hold him.

    Treehugger, YOU SUCK!! But..xoxox! Still love ya!

  188. AO said,

    Gil, to close to home. Thanks for the post. Awful.

  189. Linda said,

    Gil, I think that cowboy message is worded wrong — it’s talking to the “global you”. It seems as if only one post can go in at a time and if someone else is posting when you try, you get the msg. I stopped hating it so much when i realized that

  190. LaFlamme said,

    Okay, now I’m all caught up and you people are already drunk.

  191. Gil said,

    Finally a solution to two big problems at once.
    http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=50268
    Yes Linda, it’s safe

  192. AO said,

    Who’s drunk?

  193. Gil said,

    Damn it Linda, now you ruined it. I thought the computer actually thought I was a cowboy.

  194. Mainetarr said,

    I will call you AO-la after I pick Milo up.

    I just had a thought, if it is going to rain every fuggin weekend, let’s have a movie party at my house. We’ll do a Tarrintino Tribute Weekend and watch Hostel, Reservoir Dogs and Natural Born Killers.

  195. AO said,

    Gil, now YOU ruined it! I really DID think you were a cowboy. Well…sniff! Thought we had one real cowboy in the blog.

    Ha. Guess I’m a cowboy to my computer, too. Just got the “Slow Down Cowboy”, too.

  196. Linda said,

    Good one, Gil!! Safe in a manner of speaking

    Hey Mark, I’ve been meaning to ask you something but I’m trying to space out my demands so you don’t notice how bossy I am (working well, isn’t it?)

    All I wanted was — to find out what happened to the photos in the Vault?

  197. Mainetarr said,

    JD you big peckerhead, where are you tonight? I feel like fighting.

  198. Linda said,

    Gil, sorry, if it helps any I think you’re cowboy, OK?

  199. Mainetarr said,

    I have some funny photos of some of the bloggers that would be fun to post in the vault. LOL

  200. Linda said,

    jd piked out with some lame excuse about work. Lightweight. I remember how nasty he was to me when he thought I was an immigrant. Let’s kick his ass.

  201. Mainetarr said,

    must be his weekend on. Damn, I was so looking forward to fighting with him. I have only known him for 25 years. LOL

  202. AO said,

    Linda, Gil is a TOTAL cowboy! Hey, he’s got his own blog. I mean, what more could you ask? And, he’s good looking to boot! (Gil, I hope you know that I’m being totally serious!)

  203. Mainetarr said,

    FYI-the movie SEVEN is on TNT as we speak.

  204. LaFlamme said,

    I took the Vault Down because we never use it for everything. I’d be glad to put it back up and maybe add a few more photos. MT already has me doing some web work tonight. I could do it at the same time.

  205. Mainetarr said,

    Yeah Linda, if Gil were a president he would be Baberaham Lincoln.

  206. AO said,

    MT!! I watchted Seven from under a blanket! That had to be one of the grossest movies I’ve NEVER seen! YUCK! I’ll never “not” watch it again! GAWD, I hated that movie!

  207. Mainetarr said,

    you big sissy AO-la. It was a CLASSIC!! I have seen that sucker at least 10 times.

  208. Martha said,

    Ok… go figure.. I missed all the fun.. I’ve been sitting here reading and just about falling out of my chair.. That’s what I get for going to a work function on a friday night..

    I think the drunk, stinky goat sounds like a great idea…. Once you get it here, you can give it a bath in his pool.. Just don’t stop at my house before you do… LOL….. Oh…. and park your real vehicle out of sight, so after you make your get away you can come back and visit me… Sounds like a plan to me.

  209. AO said,

    Ha. “Baberaham Lincoln”…Gil…ya go yourself a fan club. Sure wish I could wink at you! because, I’ve been told I have nice peeps.

  210. Mainetarr said,

    Sounds like fun to me Martha. I would tell that Asshat to mind his own business and if your lawn bothered him that much, he could get off his lazy keyster and come mow it himself. That ought to shut him up.

    Instead of messing up the car with a drunk goat, we could all just go down there and put Asshat signs all over his yard and throw some roadkill in his pool.

  211. AO said,

    MT, I’m no sissy. I just don’t like gore or…heads in boxe. So, wanna call out for some take out? I just so happen to have this phone that some bitch left behind. Wanna?

  212. Mainetarr said,

    I think someone in Auburn has been into the Love My Goat tonight. She’s getting pretty flirty over there. Good thing she’s not at my house, she’d be hitting on me, AGAIN. LOL hahahahhahahhahahahaha Fly Girl’s gonna have a hangover tomorrow.

  213. Mainetarr said,

    What bitch? Me? I left my phone there?

  214. Linda said,

    I’m keeping a list of movies, and I’ll be sure not to put Seven on it.

    I read Gil’s blog, liked the comments about music especially. We brought our sons up with constant music.

    I’ll tell a little story, this is probably the kind of stuff Treehugger hates, tough shit, ive got the talking stick

    when my son Luke was 15, we took him to an anniversary party for some old people we knew. They were all of Maori background, and quite musical themselves but in that old fart, Eddie Fisher pluck the guitar and warble way. So after the old farts played and sang every lame old song they knew and their fingers were sore, someone went around offering the guitar to anyone who would take it. Luke took it and with ENORMOUS poise, settled it, tuned it, strummed a few bars and then ….

    broke into the most gorgeous version of …. WILD THING! YOU MAKE MY HEART SING! YOU MAKE EVERYTHING … GROOVY!

    The old farts were in shock but in the end they thought it was a gas. Tom and I laughed until beer came out of our nose — by good luck we werent eating peanuts at the time

  215. Martha said,

    LOL MT… so long as you do it incognito… I still want you to be able to visit me too… Actually, I’m thinking about telling him, when he starts paying my mortgage, he can dictate how my yard should look.. until then, if he doesn’t like it, he can put up the privacy fence his wife has been talking about and not look at it.

  216. Mainetarr said,

    Luke sounds like a riot and I would have laughed my head off too….

    Music has a weird way of taking me places. Today, in the office, we were listening to Totally 80’s on Sirius radio. A certain song started playing, and I was instantly transported to Lost Valley, 1985. Senior banquet night and I was asking this foreign exchange student to dance. He was shy and sitting all alone. We spent that entire summer together, inseperable. About an hour later, another song played, and I was suddenly transported to OOB, summer of 86. I could almost smell the ocean air as I listened to that song play. Music, there’s nothing like it.

  217. AO said,

    MT?? YOU?? A BITCH?? NEVER!! Sorry, I was referring to an old story you once told me. Guess I’ve seen too much puke today!

  218. Mainetarr said,

    hahahahhaha, AO, I’m with you now. I am fuggin pooped. It went right over my head.

    I gotta get some sleep, this 4am crap is getting to me. I will talk to you all later. Linda, have a good night at work. Martha, don’t let that Asshat get to you. People can be soooooooooooo rude.

  219. AO said,

    Linda, What Luke did, sounds like something my son would do. Gotta love those boys! They do rock! Especially if they’re raised by cool moms! Which, my son always tells me, I am. 🙂

  220. Linda said,

    Mine too. We did something right, no surprise

  221. Martha said,

    I think I’m headed for bed too soon.. I worked 2-10 this morning, then came home and did yard work.. only napped for about an hour before I went out again this evening..

  222. AO said,

    Nope. No surprise!

  223. AO said,

    And, one more time, Treehugger….you suck!!! Or…at least I heard you did!

  224. Bobbie said,

    But the real question is: does he swallow as well?

  225. AO said,

    Well…that’s to be decided.

  226. Bobbie said,

    I can’t believe I just posted that. Sorry, Treehugger. I guess it has to be too much heat today. It’s about 85 degrees right now, so my excuse is that my brain is fried.

    Got that stupid cowboy message twice in trying to post my apology. Maybe it’s trying to tell me something?

  227. Bobbie said,

    On that note, I’m going to call it a night. I have to go move the brick and the hose before that section of the lawn floats away.

  228. AO said,

    Bobbie, don’t apologize. Treehugger thinks we’re all too nice in here. I’ve seen him with his handcuffs and, he’s right. We are just too nice in here. After I saw what he did with those cuffs, well, we all started calling him “Tithugger”.

  229. Linda said,

    Bye, Bobbie. get ready for that goat!

  230. AO said,

    Linda, I think you’ve got Bobbie mixed up with Martha.

  231. Linda said,

    Oh gosh, sorry, I certainly did! Martha was on before and talking about going to bed, and then I spaced it when Bobbie posted! Apologies to both of you! hopefully my work isn’t suffering from blogging, but clearly work is cutting into my blogging concentration

  232. Linda said,

    Though you know, if we’re goin’ on a road trip anyhow …. hmmm, 85 degrees, eh? Sunny, is it, Bobbie?

  233. LaFlamme said,

    Christ. Robbery, overdose and stabbing within an hour. Looks like the stabbing may turn out to be a fatality. I’m out for a while.

  234. Linda said,

    Yikes. Good luck

  235. Gil said,

    Sorry I’ve been away. I had to update the blog. I was going to wait until tomorrow, but this one was bugging me too much
    http://churchofpainfultruth.blogspot.com/

    A fan club, yay I always wanted one!

  236. LaFlamme said,

    Hey, Brenda sighting. She came to see me over near the stabbing scene.

  237. Linda said,

    Hey, how is Brenda anyhow? I haven’t seen her for a while

    You got back fast —

    Gil, I thought it was funny you vanishing like that just when you became the center of attention. I never figured you for the shy type

    Hi! yep, they’re still searching.

    Hi, Linda, I’m fine. Went to Portland for an award dinner for social activists. As I returned, my street was closed off & two guys were arrested, the the building next door was taped off & no one could come or go without being “processed”… pretty good view from my porch, but can’t hear with the generator on so I don’t know whats going on there anymore. They’re searching.
    I saw Mark out there so I went ahead & said “Hi” to him.

    Looking back at the past few blog topics, you seem to have been embracing the sadistic tendencies, eh? well, I’m not into that. But I haven’t had time to read people ‘s responses yet.
    And nevermind politics!

  240. Linda said,

    Hi Brenda! Sounds like an exciting time on your street tonight. Guess I’ll read about it in the paper tomorrow if it’s not too late, maybe it is.

    Mark’s been dishing out some really strange stuff, not sure what else he’s got in the murky depths. But, you know, we feel totally free to ignore his topic if we want to. It works out fine. We blow off a little steam, it’s not like anyone can’t walk away from the comments of the moment.

    Politics — that’s what I walk away from I guess.

    Anyhow don’t be a stranger!!!

  241. brenda said,

    well, reading back a little, who is “blumpkin” and what does: “ps – Brenda = p6” mean?

    I think politics is very important, it where decisions are made, and usually people get involved in politics when politics gets involved with their wallet, so really that’s where the differences & passion comes from- according to when & how & how much a person perceives politics to be infringing on one’s own wallet.

  242. Linda said,

    Hi Brenda

    I don’t know Blumpkin myself — obviously he or she is known to the people who’ve been here longer than I have

    As for the comments with your name — I read those over a few times and couldn’t figure it out. At first I thought it meant that post #6 that day was from Brenda — but it clearly wasn’t that — can’t help you!

    I’m very interested and involved in politics but what I meant was that the chance of me discussing my views on a blog is between slim and none (and as they say, slim just left town) 🙂

  243. brenda said,

    That makes sense Linda. Well, I’m off to bed.

  244. brenda said,

    The police & big lights are still out there searching next door though.

  245. Linda said,

    I guess I’m talking to myself here but —

    It seemed safe to leave work so I did; canoed home to an empty house, not what I’m used to. Now I’m going to get on the sofa with a glass of wine and watch some horror movies. If I die of fright and you never hear from me again, well … tell Mandy to be kind to me, OK? and it’s been a barrel of laughs knowing you all.

  246. Linda said,

    And by the way, Mark, I hope you have someone to go to Somerville with you tomorrow, or else REALLY GOOD DIRECTIONS and GPS. OK?

  247. LaFlamme said,

    Thanks, Linda. Figure I’ll breeze through Somerville on my way to Boston. Sounds like a no-brainer to get there. Take a left at Tufts University and then listen for the sound of gunfire.

  248. Linda said,

    Thats it.

    I went to Tufts

  249. LaFlamme said,

    What? Did you? That would explain why you’ve been tooling on Somerville all day.

  250. Linda said,

    Yeah. Remember I said I was determined to go to college around Boston. Love that city. Happy first experience 🙂
