Re: Dollar Tree on Maple Avenue in Vienna is now open!

Alphabet-boi is such a fraud. Just another local low-grader bitter about having had his pants pulled down and his backside paddled.

Meanwhile, you don't really need numbers to solve a certain riddle. As long as the givens include a balance outstanding on both the roof and the car, you pay the car off first. Only when you have no other choice do you begin to pay off the roof. Simple. This is in fact barely fourth-grade math, but the no excuse dimbulbs have not managed to reach that level yet, and may very well never get there. I doubt that they've realized yet either that, along with magnificent views of 123, there are no awnings at Pazzo Pomodoro. Or that a flowcode is just another way of presenting a URL. Or that there has never been a connection between The Broad Street and any version of Dogwood Tavern. Sometimes stupid really does know no bounds, and Lying Linus is Exhibit-A for that. Stupid story-teller never actually lived in DC and never cruised to Cozumel. No reason to think he's any sort of regatta fan either. He's basically just one fucked over fraudster with the big bad boot a long, long way up his butt.

Well, mopre and bigger things are coming up, but the 'holiday' has so far been celebrated with a timely trip into town, as we were running low on milk. Pickd up some other odds and ends also, but even at an early hour, the ere were crowds and various everyday staples had been replaced on the shelves with nonsense sucker goods. Gotta make a buck, I guess. I'll ned to make a repeat visit over the weekend though. Parts of the cupboards reamins bare.

Still a very nice morning ut in the Sweet Spot though. it was 30 degrees out there when I got up, but we've already hit the mid 40s now, and ten more degrees should be added to that by mid afternoon. As we so aften do, we'll of course cap off the day with a no doubt delicious meal at one of the area's finer eateries. It's so nice to be a wealthy retiree.

Real President Joe will no doubt also be enjoying a festive meal today after prasing the puitomc of the Aebery trial. While not apparently in the Rittenhouse case, juries do at least sometimes manage to get these things right. Right-wing America of course always gets them wrong. It's unclear in fact what basis these clown-people have for claiming to be American at all.

In other news, the Nats have signed RHP Victor Arano (26) to a minor league contract. He had a brief and reasonably impressive stint with PHI in 2019, and did well in Triple-A for ATL last year. He'll get a good look down in Palm Beach next spring.

Long looks are of course not needed in evaluating a waste of space place like Falls Church City. Five-tool losese, the Shabby City has just about nothing at all going for it. One bright spot is that the City's homeless shelter on Gordan Road will open foe the season next week. A warm place to stay, plus dinner, breakfast, and a bag lunch are provided to the first ten men and two women who check in. It's not much of course, but it's not nothing either.

It’s small, has no decent eateries and W. Bell & Co. catalog showroom closed many years ago.

Don't try to impose your fetishes on me, drunken Gerund Boy. Just because you have a weird fetish, doesn't mean everybody's a weirdo like you. It's the same as just because you're a liar & a fake, doesn't mean everybody is.

Imagine, a potty mouth 5th grader like El Borracho Muchacho del Gerundio who's so self absorbed he thinks everybody's like him or wants to be. What a loser.

We also see that Old Pottymouth shitposted on TG Day, along with the usual basement dwelling incel trolls. That's the perfect company for Gerund Boy. Us normal people didn't have time for a stupid ass internet message board on TG Day. We were too busy enjoying the company of our family & friends. Of course Gerund Boy's such a disgusting & rude potty mouth, nobody wants nothing to do with him.

Well, the Linus-Like are often reduced to having nothing better than CALPERS slop to say, so they regularly run and hide behind such pointless diarrhea. Sad. Meanwhile, it was a very nice holiday dinner that the wife and I enjoyed yesterday. At least until they pushed tables together next to us to seat a party of eleven, most of them from New Yoek City. Boorish! Thankfully, we were already well into dessert mode by then, so the suffering was limited. We used to live in the NYC area, and so were reminded of one big reason why we were happy to move.

Actual evidence of what we had...

1. Escargots
2. Lobster ravioli
3. Parmesan-encrusted cod
4. Lamb shank
5. Dessert sampler

Main plates included mashed potato, sweet potato, and haricots verts
House-made desserts were chocolate mousse, pumpkin tart, and apple cake.

All for $250, drinks and generous tip included. Nice!

one of The Principals did not fare as well, as positive COVID tests at Grandma's house pulled the rug from under dinner plans there. Had to wrangle a last-minute spot at Ruth's Chris instead. Get vaccinated.

Well, here it is Black Friday already, so start madly ordering stuff that you may never be able to pay for. Be sure though to hold something back for Cyber Monday, the all-important gods of mindless consumerism advise. You wouldn't want to be caught falling behind the Joneses on your electronics horde after all! Out here in the actually upscale Sweet Spot, we already have all the e-stuff we need, but I am still searching for an appropriate 2022 linen calendar towel. Those are a tradition in our kitchen, but some sort of supply chain issue seems to have kept any of the nice ones from reaching our usual suppliers. Meanwhile it was 43 degrees outside when I got up this morning, and that's about the best we're going to see today. Already blustery NW winds may get up into the 40 mph range later on, but such weren't really significant yet along my daily stroll down and back to grab the morning paper.

Real President Joe is meanwhile spending the holiday on Nantucket, as he first did back in 1975. Like all normal Americans, he is certain to be repulsed by the Islamophobic slop coming from the mouth and keyboard of a certain Colorado cretin who somehow still serves in Congress. She should suffer at least censure, and more probably expulsion at this point. And she can take that vile Greene woman (and some right-wing so-called men) along with her.There should plainly be no place for hatred in our politics, yet some simply champion it. Bull Connor is not truly dead yet.

In other news, a few folks have signed on to [play in NPB next year, taking the securityof that over the uncernty looming on the other side of CBA expiration next week. There is just no telling what sorts of damage Bozo Bobby's boys are about to do, so taking shelter from the storm is certainly an understandable thing to do.

The only such option for embattled residents of fractured Falls Church City is of sourse to find some way to leave. Far more friendly and supportive climes are to be found only a short jaunt away, but some poor souls are so tapped out and jammed up that they can't make even that minor sort of leap. Sucks to be them alright.

You can get those pics anywhere on the internet, Gerund Boy. Just b|c you're gullible doesn't mean everybody is. You really are a self absorbed clown, aren't you? Sure suck s to be you. I know I wouldn't want to be a self absorbed & self righteous jerk with the potty mouth of a 10 YO like Gerund Boy.

Nobody believes you, Old Pottymouth. You sat at home & got drunk, just like you always do. What a phoney Gerund Boy is.

No, you can’t. You would have had to be in a particular place at a particular time, as we were. Then you would have had to place the exact same order we did, not succumbing instead to a filet or the pan-seared salmon.

> Nobody believes you, Old Pottymouth.

The truth is out there.

> You sat at home & got drunk, just like you always do.

Not at first wanting to tackle a full bottle, the wife and I split three glasses of Pinot Grigio yesterday. Those were VIP pours though, so there might not have been all that much difference.

The jury got the Rittenhouse verdict RIGHT, liberal moron. People who get things wrong are white guilters like you, loser. What's more, you're nothing but a hypocrite, sitting out there in your "sweet spot" far from negros and other criminals and preaching to us. Everybody sees thru you, dumb shit.

I see those other trolls are right when they you're drunk. WTF is a "puitomc"? Drunk again, I see.

Now the Arbery jury got it right, too. Yeah, he was a negro, but still, you don't just go running around shooting people b\c they're negros. That gives us America loving conservatives a bad name. You libs don't have to worry ab out having a bad name, You're beyond help. Everybody knows how much you hate America.

So STF & move to Iran or cuba or NK, if you want a socialist paradise.



OH NO! I was redundant AGAIN! I said liberal "moron".

Well, the wife is sitting across from me finishing off her leftover lamb shank with saffron rice and veggies. Smells great. I cleaned my plate yesterday, so I can only settle for a bagel with salmon, onion, tomato, and cream cheese. Not bad for second best.

Plenty of room on the equity line that so baffles your low-grade sorry ass. But we do typically stay at the Parker House when in Boston. Nice place, especially perhaps the bagels all the way at breakfast. Some assembly required.

We know you're a pickle smoker, sorry ass libstain. Take your self hate somewhere else. Only a self hating jackoff like you supports coddling negro criminals like Burn Loot Murder.

You cheer negro criminals when they prey on white people, but when white people arm themselves & fight back, you want to take their defensive firearms away from them but let negro criminals keep their guns. All from the safe confines of your "sweet spot", far away from negro criminals. America hating hypocrites like you are ruining this country.

Move to NK. They won't let you have your "sweet spot", there, but, you want a socialist paradise, so go get it, loser!

What a worthless jackoff.

Go storm the Capitol or jack off to recollections of George Lincoln Rockwell. You are just one sick, weak, and badly deluded right-wing loser-puppy.

Well, these weak-minded Whiffies are nothing if not consistently AWOL in the head and otherwise. But leave them alone, and the losers will come home, wagging their little lamb tails behind them, Also no doubt telling some little lamb tall but non-factual tales of phony holiday travel. You know how they do. Sunny and 52 degrees in Cape Canaveral this morning by the way, They won't see 70. Back here in the ever superior Sweet Spot meanwhile, it was 34 drgrees when I got up under partly cloudy skies that should clear up soon. We won't see much more than the low 40s today, with low humidity, and very little chance of rain, but with some huff-and-puff breezes still kicking up here and there. It was still no worse than a it nippy as I went out and back to reel in the morning paper amidst the hum and chorus of whirring leaf-blowers. I see that DC has banned gas-powered blowers. I doubt our fossil fuel Governor-elect will be jumping on that bandwagon though. Forward thinking is not usually his forte

Real President Joe is in the meantime sending help to COVID beleaguered Michigan, as teams of doctors, nurses, and respiratory specialists will soon be arriving in both Dearborn and Grand Rapids. The state could also benefit from an anti rightwing whacko vaccine as soon as one of those is developed. And the FAA is boldly going where they should always have been by slapping hefty fines on non-compliant and typically intoxicated passengers. Acting out in the skies is not a part of Liberty & Freedom, dimbulbs!

In other news, The Mets have talked to Scott Boras about Max Scherzer, but seem to have been discouraged enough in that to have moved on now to Kevin Gausman. The NYers may need to recall that while over-spending makes for glitzy headlines, it rarely makes for a successful ballclub. We'll see what moves come down next week, before expiration of the CBA prompts another bad for the game lockout. Bozo Bobby and the boys are such short=sighted fools.

Even worse of course are the fools of so many sorts who continuously crush the already faded fortunes of sorry Falls Church City. Home to such a ghastly array of Princes of Poppycock and Barons of Balderdash, the City's whole sordid slew of shit-slingers has nothing to stand on but their own singularly stunning stupidity.

Our Sweet Spot lives are ever rich and joyful. So much more than what is found in the make-do worlds of intellectual failures

Neither of us is fond of turkey. When we cooked for a family of four, the top main dish choices for Thanksgiving were two stuffed ducks, one stuffed goose, or half a leg of lamb. The menu on Thursday included a roast turkey plate with all the traditional trimmings, but even with Mr. and Mrs. Owner vouching for it, we went in different directions. The cod was certainly an excellent choice. Escargots were of course an appetizer.

Always at least very good, but the owners are actually Iranian. Chef Ocean and Chef Martin were both working Thursday. Not really sure what their heritage might be.

Get it together, mindless lemming. You just swallow every little bit of programming from your Dopeycrat masters. You also swallow the spooge they pump in you when you smoke their pole

All you can do is parott the mush they feed you. Go worship Mao & Castro & Lenin just like your programmers tell you. You're just another dooped looney left lemming & what makes you even dumber is your proud of it.

Real Americans aren't interested in your self hate & coddling negro criminals.

Bad news, self hating stupid shit. That's more of the junk science your Dumbocrat programmers agree feeding you. You know, the same kind of just no science what says there are 83 genders & you're a girl just b|c you say so.

White men aren't descended from blacks. You're just full of shit as usu. That's why nobody believes you. All you do is make up shit & believe the shit people make up.

Advance degrees. Right. More of your lies.

There’s that angry calpers outrage we all recognize when the bumbling boob knows he’s been bested. Might as well have raised a white flag. Always the coward.

WRONG AGAIN, DOLT. The fact is you're an exceedingly moronic, self hating ignoramus who's got a bad case of Negro Envy. The last 1 alone is proof of what a dumb jackoff you are as nobody in their right mind wants to be a negro. Plus Trump Derangement Syndrome & you're not looking too good, Buckaroo. & Then we remember what a lying piece of dog crap fake you are & now you're really a last place loser.

Sux2BU, douche bag.

Dimwit likes to use the lol name on other threads but with small letters. He thinks people won't recognize it when he's losing an argument, which he always does & he starts calling people names like a 5th grader.

Dimwit's not very smart & he thinks everybody's dumb like he is.

Gerund Boy's so full of it even that wouldn't clean him out. You could stuff him full of fiber and duct tape a Bardex nozzle in him for 48 he's & when you deflated it & he evacuated you still wouldn't get it all out.

Maybe that's why he's got such a terrible potty mouth. He's so full of it , it just comes out every end & opening.

So many weaklings and cripples who couldn’t keep up with a turtle. An old turtle with really bad arthritis. Imagine how badly the lives of two wealthy Sweet Spot retirees leave them in the dust. Poor babies.

So you are old and wealthy but soon you will be dead. Like the song says Time slips away and all your money wont another minute buy. The world will be a better place when you die.

Many 20- and 30-somethings will die well before we do. Pick up the paper and read about the ones who did so just yesterday. Meanwhile, we are old and wealthy enough to be nearly ten years retired now, all the while enjoying all the best in life out here in the glorious Sweet Spot. No baseball at Nats Park these days of course, but we get by for now in dining out often and otherwise living in our magnificent but certainly not grandiose home on a beautifully maintained and much larger than average wooded lot along sparkling rills and runs in the middle of one of the most desirable neighborhoods in NoVa. It suits us.

Only a diaper pooping, dribbling old fogey like you still reads newspapers. The rest of us do it the modern way & read the news on the internet. We read reliable sources like CNN with Anderson Cooper and MSNBC with Rachel Maddow.

Unlike a closet Trumpikin like you, we don't pay attention to Carlson or Fox News and Breitbart.

Well, while as wrung out and badly wilted as ever, the Whiffies are seemingly quarantined now, so perhaps The Virus has got to them at last. Would that some of these other trash-talkers came to the same fate, the feeble and fumble-prone dumbshits. It was meanwhile 36 degrees when I awoke here in the magnificent Sweet Spot this morning to find bright blue and briliantly sunny skies, moderate humidity, and the lightest of breezes out of the south. We should continue to have skies that are not cloudy all day, with negligible chances of any rain, and high temps at least in the low 50's. Not at all bad for late November. Being The Lord's Day, things were mostly quiet on my way down and back to bring in the morning paper. Off in the distance, some moto-jerk could be heard trying to play Super Mario Kart on public roads, but things otherwise were mostly still. The leaf-blowers should show up again tomorrow though.

Real President Joe is meanwhile wondering with the rest of us how he managed to invent the Omicron variant as the fools at Fox News have been suggesting that he did this weekend. The entire right-wing has simply lost its mind.

In other news, the Super Two cutoff point has been officially set at two years and 116 days of MLB service. Those between that mark and a full three years will get an extra (fourth) year of arbitration eligibility. Of course, the whole system will collapse when the CBA expires in a few days and MLB institutes another industry-damaging lockout. We can only wait and see what happens in all of that, expecting of course that it will be mostly bad. Bad is the currency after all of Bozo Bobby.

Hard to figure what events could happen that would further damage feeble Falls Church City of course. The presence of so many shit-slinging morons and cowards along with the absence of so many amenities mark that sorry spot as no more than a derelict dump, a place to be eminently avoided and thoroughly forgotten.

No doubt another long winded, boring screed packed with lies. I might even point them out had I bothered to read it. However, as previously noted, there's no reason to subject oneself to the nonsensical ramblings of a confirmed sociopathic liar.

How hard is it to tell that Linus is back in town?

On the other hand, the left wing never had a mind to lose in the 1st place.. It's why they're all programmed automatons only regurgitating what their Dopeycrap master's feed them. Such pathetic losers.
