Pics from me place

December 6, 2007

My place for at least the next 6 months.


A huckster’s comeuppance

December 4, 2007

God told him to resign. God did.

Oh Dick.

Your staggering arrogance amazes me.

It wasn’t the alleged abuses of your flock’s funds.

It wasn’t the multiple overwhelming votes of “no confidence” from the faculty.

It wasn’t the threat of the provost (and former dean of the business school) to resign due to your fiscal ineptitude.

Hell, it didn’t even begin to address your “healing” powers received via your genetic conduit to God. (By the way, since your dad was spiritually charged to find a cure for cancer years ago, how’s that going? Guess I missed the Christmas letter).

It was God, Dick. It. Was. God.

You know, if I didn’t have family of friends associated with your institution or think that its closing would negatively impact Tulsa, I’d be on the front row cheering for the legal system to deliver the match-ending suplex you so deserve.

Deathmatch: Turkey v. Tofurkey v. Turducken

November 22, 2007

Only in American would a turducken and a tofurkey receieve an audience.

Anyway, I recently went on the Talimina Drive & thought I’d share some pics. Looking at the scenery, it’s hard to imagine this area as being the meth capital (per capita, of course) of the U.S.

Movin’ on up like George & Weezie

November 17, 2007

Hallo, dear readers. After too long of a hiatus, Guy is back. For those out of the loop, I have Waltzed Matilda up north & put down stakes in a sister city. To avoid duplicating the error of a fellow member of the brotherhood “back home,” I have decided that I shall not write about any work I may be doing here, so if you want stories, you gotta get ’em in person. Yeah, I know, this defeats the purpose of a blog, but again, I don’t want to be burned.

Honoring Oklahoma’s 99th Statehood Day & the Sooners who came before me, I am writing this on the day (Friday) that I am moving into my new residence a day early. I have some photos of my current residence & will have pics of the new place soon.

Well, that’s all for now. Stay tuned, loyal lurkers, as I hope to begin writing again on a semi-regular basis.

Archers at the ready

October 22, 2007

From the talking Christosaurus that is Oral Roberts comes the news that “the devil is not going to steal ORU.” I hear they’ve posted sniper angels atop the praying hands. Stay tuned as this is bound to get more hilarious.

Spritzing on my parade

October 15, 2007

So I went downtown to see a film at the Art Museum & a Centennial Parade broke out. Of course, I was again without camera, but others were able to capture some pics: here, here, here, and here . For a guy who hates parades, I had a surprisingly good time. I think having Lady Tinkleton there to encourage my smart ass remarks helped.

I was happy to see Tom Stafford in the parade, but disappointed to see that Shannon Lucid was not. It’s not a badge, but she is probably Bethany’s finest. I was also happy to see Eddie Sutton in the parade & was relieved to see him riding in the back seat for a change.

It was quite surreal to look up & see a stealth bomber just cruising over downtown OKC. I was hoping it would drop a nougat cluster bomb. Alas, no luck.

A note to all future parade planners: if you intend to include a guy with a jet pack as part of the big finale, please have him operate it a bit further from the parade route. Although the folks at the public works department may appreciate his ability to whip the confetti into piles, my head & face did not appreciate the exfoliating blast of dirt & asphalt.

A lit-uh-gus society?

October 8, 2007

Oral Roberts University & it’s president, Richard Roberts, are in trouble for allegedly using school funds to remodel their home, send their daughter & her friends on the school’s jet to the Bahamas, and to purchase over $39,000 on clothing for Mrs. Roberts along with a number of other allegations. I guess there’ll be no more Oral pleasures for the Roberts family.

(Seriously, how has The Onion not offered me a job yet?)
