8 hours left baby - YEAH!!!



That image is quite the morning refresher - and it summerizes my brother so well. Today we will be discussing Josh - his world, his mind, and his wubbies.



This is a big day in my older brother's world. Today he leaves his job at Rain and Hail for a better paid position at Allied Insurance. Josh has been butt monkey to the suits at R&H for 5+ years and earlier this year he applied for a position that would move him forward in the business - he had paid his dues and it was time to let R&H give a little back. They responded by giving the job to someone else, continuing to use my brother as their personal handi wipe.

So Josh stepped up - realizing that he would never move forward at R&H, he found a better spot with Allied! Of course, being the kind and soft individual he is, he kept working at R&H until today... then he starts Allied on Monday (one day off would not have killed him).

Congratulations Josh! You are moving forward with your life... maybe I can start stealing change from you again now.

Yo



p.s. I changed the settings for responses to comments to include only those who have signed up for our blog - no more anonymous. So everyone try to comment... and e-mail me if you have issues.

Damfino said...

That is actually his goal for the next year - to give a female his Josh meat.

Should go well.

Damfino said...

Kreitner - the only issue you have is which mammory to bury yourself in that particular night!

Oh.. and those pesky nut herps!

krysta jo said...

Congrats Joshy!

Damfino said...

Ol wonky gave Josh a winky! Pisser is that he won't read any of this til - 3 or 4... he might not even check it.

So if you want to talk smack about the guy now would be the time!!

urnotme said...

Hey does this mean QueenB can't comment now?

Finally Josh.
Good Work!

Damfino said...

Crap... can you send me her e-mail and I will invite her!

Kern said...

Morning party people...congrats to Josh. I have a friend that actually works at Allied I think as a technical writer.

Urnotme: What's the news on the computer situation? Did our illustrious advice help?

QueenB said...

I can comment!

onecrazylady said...

Way to go Josh!!

QueenB said...

Josh, I dont know you but GREAT work getting a new job!

Urnotme. I had my interview yesterday, it was alright. It wasnt the position I thought it would be but its alright and higher midpoint. AND NO WEEKENDS!

Damfino, the pics on todays post are great.

Damfino said...

Good to see you can post Queenie!

I agree - the images of Josh are jaw dropping... in fact, that first pic.. if you stare at his eyes...







whoa... creepy.

Kern said...

Then there's also the too loose hat. Also creepy.

Damfino said...

And his need to touch his belly hair... ugh.

QueenB said...

The loose hat is hot.

Buttercup said...

Yeah for Josharoo. My own made up words are my favorite. So I would agree with Bunnies Statements earlier except that I am horrified by them.

damifino- the Mammory comment come on now. I like to call them teets.

Damfino said...

You mean "hott."

onecrazylady said...

I run in fear of the loose hat.

Damfino said...

Oh dear lord... I forgot I made the mammory comment here.

And the teet correction... I think I can hear your IC giggle from here!

Damfino said...

You bike in fear of the loose hat.

What do you spose he needs it loose for?

Buttercup said...

Well as long as someone can hear me giggle then it is all good.
That first picture....whoa boy clean out your nostrils

Damfino said...

I photoshop'd the hell outta it. You can't see anything... can you?

Sorry Josh - I did not cover your manstills very well.

onecrazylady said...

His head is growing?

Damfino said...

Just the hair - he is going 60's pimp on us with his doo lately. His sideburns are sickly and stringy... women keep swooning because of them.

Queen B - I just notice you have a blog. My damfino minions may have to attack... ATTACK I SAY!!










damnit - no one ever listens to me.

Princess said...

Congrats Josh on the new job!!! But you are still working for the competition!!!!

onecrazylady said...

Hey lady!

Damfino said...

Sweet azz Barbarella pic!!!

Everyone throw on complements!!















.... you guys suck.

onecrazylady said...

Didn't you pick it?

Kern said...

Barbarella rules! The soundtrack is also tops...Bob Crewe kicks ass!

QueenB said...

Damfino, who wrote that book? Donna something? I think Dan has been telling me how great that book is. I am trying to get him to read 100 people that are screwing up america. I havent read it but I want to know if its any good.

Damfino said...

um... well - yeah.

But showing the world i am tool is not cool.

onecrazylady said...

You know me. Just doing my part.

Damfino said...

"Time Traveler's Wife" was written by Audrey Niffenegger... I did a post about it last week.

Really good - and I don't read romantic novels at all!

Damfino said...

"Bernard Goldberg takes dead aim at the America Bashers (the cultural elites who look down their snobby noses at "ordinary" Americans) ... the Hollywood Blowhards (incredibly ditzy celebrities who think they're smart just because they're famous) ... the TV Schlockmeisters (including the one whose show has been compared to a churning mass of maggots devouring rotten meat) ... the Intellectual Thugs (bigwigs at some of our best colleges, whose views run the gamut from left wing to far left wing) ... and many more."

sounds cool!

QueenB said...

Oh yes I remember now. For some reason I thought I saw urnotme with a differnt book though..

Damfino said...

I am listening to your Dawn and Drew show.. um... I hate the word "pee."

Damfino said...

Yar - he has a couple he is trying to get through.

QueenB said...

I LOVE Dawn and Drew but I have not listened to them in SO long. I usually load them to my ipod and try to fit them in somewhere but it hasn't been happening lately. They are pretty hilarious though for 2 people in the middle of Wisconsin just shooting the shit.

QueenB said...

My favorite podcast lately has been Z100's phone taps. Prank phone calls.

Damfino said...

Steven's had a cd of that stuff.

I don't have my ipod yet - soon though.

The only podcast I listen to is "The Treatment" - Elvis Mitchell doing a show out of San Francisco... movie talk.

Kern said...

Elvis Mitchell...I like reading his articles in the Times. He's fun to watch when he interviews people also. It's like watching a younger hipper version of Inside The Actors Studio.

Damfino said...

His dreds scare me.

QueenB said...

Yeah I gave him that cd, did you listen to it?

QueenB said...

Damfino- what kind of ipod are you going to get?

Kern said...

His dreads are a touch frightening. But I dig him overall.

I can't remember if I asked you this, Jed, but did you ever see Kieslowski's The Decalogue?

Damfino said...

We listened to a little on the way to the fair.

I am going to get the huge one... 20 gb or 60... I can use it for work as well (and it has color!)

QueenB said...

Yeah I have a 30 gb ipod photo. I love it. I think they just recently stopped making the 30 gb size and upgraded the 20 to the photo. Just be prepared for all the "extras" that you will want to buy once you have it!

Shua! said...

I want to thank the Academy for this award!

Thanks to all of you out there in the blog world showing yours truelly some love.

I feel like dancing where is the party at tonight?

Damfino said...

You can dance a jig at home while I drink myself to death!

Satan's Giblets said...

Nice picture of Johnny Drama

Damfino said...

Shua! said...

Quick side note on the hat I am starting group therapy on that next week sometime.

It helps to talk with fellow loose hatters!

Barb and One Crazy Lady I like your pictures.

Satan's Giblets said...

NO LOVE FOR ME YOU SONOVABITCH!!!

onecrazylady said...

Thanks but the love goes to Damfino. They are his handy work.

Shua! said...

Hey Damfino nice going on my picture and the ladies pictures.

To quote Drama "Nice going bro".

onecrazylady said...

Dancing evil

Shua! said...

Why is dancing evil?

I will dance the Happy Dance here later today.

TGIF to all!!!

Sheriff Officer Greg the Bunny said...

"Great night...yeah great f*ckin night"


Kudos Drama!

Damfino said...

The forging of the brood has begun.

You soon will all bow.

hee

Deit Heimley said...

OK. I now have a picture. Are you happy now Jed?? Are you?? Are you happy now that you made the little monkey dance?!! Huh? Huh? I bet you're real happy now aren't you!!! Huh?! You're happy now that I got a picture! Now that I bowed down and did as you told me!! I bet you're happy ... REAL HAPPY!!!
AREN'T YOU!!!! AREN'T YOU!!!!!!!!!!

Satan's Giblets said...

I'm happy. What is your picture... looks like some superhero suit from the seventies.

Damfino said...

Deit makes me giggle - you bow well.

Damfino said...

But did you sign on to the group... total comformation! That is what you need Deit.

Deit Heimley said...

It is. It's Deit Heimley!!

Surly you've heard of him!

Damfino said...

Surly? Surely you cannot be serious.

(please forgive me for being so lame as to point out your error.. I got nothing going for me today)

Satan's Giblets said...

I am not sure if I get what Deit Heimley is. But your picture makes me want to perform abortions. So that is good.

Damfino said...

I am off to a meeting kats - hope to catch ya before the weekend... if not.

PCE

Deit Heimley said...

Yeah. I can't spell. What are you going to make fun of next ... my gimp arm ... my go-wonky eye?? HUH?? Funny man!! Funny little man!

Deit Heimley said...

Sorry. I think the picture is affecting me.

Satan's Giblets said...

At least you don't end messages with pce or yo.

What is a go-wonky eye?

Deit Heimley said...

You know -- an eye that sort of has a mind of its own. A bit more extreme than a lazy eye.

Satan's Giblets said...

You mean a googly-eye.

I hate those bastards.

Deit Heimley said...

Yeah, OK. a googly-eye. That works too. I think go-wonky is a bit more insulting, and that was the point. Like you could say a crippled arm, but saying it's a gimp arm is more insensitive and thus funnier. You see sometimes you have to make words up in comedy that nearly sound like real words, but like a worse version of those words. Go-wonky is probably not a real word, but it does sound worse to say someone has a go-wonky eye than to say he has a googly-eye.

But now we are beginning to discuss the nature of comedy. Nothing is more boring than discussing comedy.

Satan's Giblets said...

Or reading as someone discusses comedy. I think googly-eye is funnier than go-wonky. But then again, my favorite show on TV is King of Queens. It was Everybody Loves Raymond but that ended this year.

Deit Heimley said...

OK. Let me give you two senarios. Raymond is talking about a guy that is creeping him out. His wife asks what was wrong and he says that guy had a go-wonky eye. People laugh when his wife slaps him for being so insensitive.

The comedy there is that Raymond was being doubly politically incorrect. Now it would be funny if he said googly eye too, but you add another layer of comedy when the very word used to describe an uncomfortable subject is itself slightly uncomfortable.

But saying go-wonky is more Seinfeld than Raymond. Imagine George coming in and talking about this date he has. Jerry and Elaine are there and George hesitates before he explodes that she had a go-wonky eye. Nobody knows what he means (like you just now), and Jerry says ah, a googly eye? and they have a long discussion about how to describe it.

In either case comedy ensues because it is not a real word.

Satan's Giblets said...

I liked Seinfeld alot too!

Deit you seem like a very funny guy. Both of your examples sound like they could really happen on the show!

Have you ever seen Office Space? That is funny too.

Deit Heimley said...

So is Platoon!









(let's see if anyone gets that)

Satan's Giblets said...

Did they do that as a bit on Everybody Loves Raymond?

Deit Heimley said...

No, Office Space if funny, but unguided in its humor. Much better are my favorite comedies:
The Opposite of Sex
Blazing Saddles
Waterworld
Ninja Porn: The Movie

Deit Heimley said...

Nope. Think parody movie of the mid-80s.

Deit Heimley said...

And where the hell is everyone!!

Where's Kern!

Satan's Giblets said...

I love Blazzing Sadles! But Waterworld? Keving Costner sucks.

Damfino said...

Lame-asses.

Think Leslie Neilsen!

Pricillia Presley?

Nice Nija Porn drop!

Sheriff Officer Greg the Bunny said...

Diet,

Netflix is sending me The Opposite of Sex and it will arrive at my door today. Can't wait to see it if it made the top spot in your top 4 funny flix list.

bunny out

Damfino said...

I am off - Kevin Costner does not suck! Fuck off Arrowsmith!

See ya kats next week

Satan's Giblets said...

Damfino said...

Hee hee.. he said "Diet" instead of Deit.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

Damfino said...

Satan - you are a tool

Later Yos!

Kern said...

Damn, late to the party again.
