YARBZ NEGATIVE ARCHIVE: VIEW FROM OLD AETNA CONNECTICUT CLAIM SERVICE CENTER 1994:

img01441994-civic-center-view
This is the view from the third floor of the Hartford civic Center which was, at the time, the Aetna Connecticut Claim Service Center. Aetna, in the form of a P&C insurer, no longer exists… Many of the people I work with now at SCIC worked there. Today, at 1600 hours, there is a reunion of Aetna (Bunch-O-Desks Insurance Company) at Margarita’s in East Hartford. It will be fun to see some of them again! I remember this storm. Many of us went downstairs to the old Margarita’s that was in the Civic Center and imbibed until the traffic died down. After that I went home to my Middletown apartment where Spouse 1.0 gave me a lot of grief that was unnecessary and undeserved… It wasn’t long before she bolted and my life became much better.

Week in Review

CATAGORIES: WEEK IN REVIEW — FloridaBill @ 9:00 am

File under Week 5 of 2009.

Here we are, over a week into the Obama presidency and he still hasn’t fixed the economy that is teetering on the edge of a deep dark precipice. I thought there was gonna be some change? Bipartisan my ass. When is he gonna do something about the job market? The economy is on the brink of disaster and he is all worried about what happens in the Middle East by going on Arab TV and sending George Mitchell to Israel. (I hope you all can sense the sarcastic tone.)

National Parks SuicideHanging van

Last week it was flying cars, this week it’s teleportation. I love it!.

In completely unrelated news, the Royal Air Force is getting closer to shooting down a UFO.

Also from the UK is this story that should please Feste about Evangelical Atheism being alive and well. Vaya con Dios.

Players from Houston and Arizona made a new kind of “face” book friend this week. I hope Aubrey Coleman doesn’t get all suicidal over this and drive his car over a cliff or something stupid.

From the “I can’t believe that her uterus didn’t fall out” file comes this story about a woman who gave birth to octuplets. That is eight babies, not some kind of invertebrate, spineless critters like spider-squid.

piglet-squid2

You would find me at the bottom of an abyss if my wife had 8 babies at once. Oh, and by the way, mom already has six other kids for a grand total now of fourteen! W. T. F. ?

And from the “that just ain’t right” file is this story about a 93 year old WWII vet who froze to death because the power company shut off his electricity. That just ain’t right. Those folks should be thrown in a very deep crevice as they are major Fucktards.

Also topping the list of Fucktards of the week are:
Rod Blogyoyovich. (again). First he decides to boycott his own impeachment trial in the Illinois Senate, then, in a last ditch effort to keep from being toppled, he asks for and receives 90 minutes for a closing argument. He used about half of that. The case has gone swiftly like greased goose poop downhill. For sale: IL Tollway signs with the former Governors name. I saw a woman on the news yesterday that said if Blago was convicted, he should be made to stand on scaffolds, wearing an orange jump suit and sand-paper his name off those signs. For a time yesterday, Illinois had no Governor. Now, there is a new one.
Ted Haggard, a former minister of a Mega-church who now seems so conflicted that he may never dig himself out of the hole he has created.
Thomas Lee Rowley a cracker from Victorville, Ca who stabbed his ex to reclaim the breast implants he paid for.
Bennie Wint, who faked his own death twenty years ago and got caught on a routine traffic stop.
Roy Lynn Oakley from Oak Ridge, TN who was stealing nuked parts from K-25 and selling them to the French who wouldn’t know what to do with them anyway. He is over the edge for sure.
Ervin Lupoe, who killed his five kids, his wife and then himself after losing his job. He and Mark Meeks can kill each other in hell for the remainder of eternity.
Kimberly Tenor and Royce Ziegler, II who are on trial (or soon going to trial) for the killing of a 2 year old angel named Riley Ann Sawyers or “Baby Grace”. They both make me sick. Too bad the prosecutors decided not to seek the death penalty. Royce Ziegler number one should be so proud.
Arthur Freeman, who threw his four year old daughter off a bridge in Australia, also makes me ill. He should suffer the same fate.

The SuperBowl is on Sunday. I am hoping the underdogs can overcome the odds and win. I am also looking forward to the half time show with a 12 minute party promised by Bruce Springsteen.

Enjoy your freedoms and happy healthy weekends to all.

The world has lost another member of Lynyrd Skynyrd.

RIP Piano Man.

I will have portions of Freebird in my head for a while.

FROM THE “WHAT WERE THEY THINKING DEPARTMENT”:

The response should have been anticipated…
“…Some of Spirit’s ads invite customers to enjoy its DD’s (deep discounts) and “MILF” (many islands, low fare) specials — double entendres that also refer to large breasts and a crude acronym popularized in the 1999 movie “American Pie” that describes an attractive mother…”
