Sorry, I just got here myself...

I typed in what I thought was the correct URL for this site, but a typo in the name -- I typed harlanellsion.com -- led me to one of those "did you mean..." sites.

The options it gave me were: Harlan - Kentucky Fried Chicken - Your Christian

:shock:

Three things that always go well together. . .

I remember back at York when events put on by the KCF* were attended by people looking for KFC**. Our priest found it very amusing.


* Korean Christian Fellowship
**Kentucky Fried Chicken.

I'm sure our household is not the only one to have referred to that Dick Wolf TV drama series, "Law and Order: SUV."
War is, at first, the hope that one will be better off; next, the expectation that the other fellow will be worse off; then, the satisfaction that he isn't any better off; and, finally, the surprise at everyone's being worse off. - Karl Kraus

According to Superfreakonomics cable television helped Indian women break away from the oppression of their men, because the images liberated them. See, tv aint all bad.

According to the wife of a couple with whom I used to be "dog park" friends, she wanted to research the kind of unconditional affection dogs seem to show to their owners. So.

She Googled "dog love".

'Nuff said, except that at that moment her husband walked in on her and promptly freaked out. That one took some 'splainin', Lucy! :shock:

When I worked at a temperature control contractor, I did some time at the front desk, answering phones, etc.

Things got boring rather quickly, so they had me look up other contractors on the internet to find some sales opportunities.

Fair enough. Some of the searches "Temperature Control Companies" and other word combinations came up with some useful contacts. Others were not so useful. I found out, for example, that Rodney Dangerfield had a website. How THAT ended up in a search for HVAC contractors I'll never know.

Finally, I put in "Temp Controls". Along with some of the expected results, was one or two that had no ID. Hmm. I clicked on one. I got what looked like a temp agency. Okay, fair enough. However, as I read on, I realized what this was, was an "escort service" where one of their lady professionals would pretend to be the Naughty Temp Girl.

Whoops. Right there at the front desk. I exited right away.

And got a pop-up for a porn site. Oh, shit. Closed that window and got another pop-up.

Fortunately, no one walked by the front desk as I fantically shut down the internet connection and stopped the XXX-pop-up cluster fuck.

Even when you're careful in your search, you can still get Naughty Sandra.

For about 6 months I attempted to run a BDSM website. That was one way we trapped people. It's called mousetrapping for a reason.

Ah, Lori, you do know that there are a half billion of those "sites" on the internet? BDSM midgets? That might work.

At the time I was doing it it was a really niche market Frank. I gave it up because it was a lot of work and very little money.

About six pictures in, you'll find out why I don't wanna ruin a good boy. That really is my butt, and it was three days after the act that made it look like that.

Poor Lori! 8) You need a... CHRISTIAN SIDE HUG!!!!!!

I'd gladly give you a Muslim side hug but my arms can't reach out of my burka. :lol:

(Ok, seriously folks... now why is it that when I type "Christian Side Hug" it's funny, but when I type "Muslim Side Hug" it sounds like something illegal, dangerous, and/or portrayed by Peter O'Toole in LAWRENCE OF ARABIA? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?!!? :shock: )

Come on Gwynnie. You know me better than that.

Find me a girl who is willing to give me a good full frontal hug! I know you can't do that stuff anymore, and I'm gonna respect that. *giggle*

I promise I'll hug you afterwards. From the front. You'll need the comforting. :lol:

"buying babies like Angelina Jolie!" :lol: "Jesus never hugged anyone like that" -- yeah, 'cuz' as Criss says, "He had hot-ass women kissing his feet and shit."
