Cocktails and Queries

Oh, Googles, what would we do without you? Especially at the tail end of an exhausting teaching week, when brains are so scrambled you begin to worry that someone will mistake you for the latest entrant into the Republican presidential field. The Moms gave up on coherent thought early in the evening and headed over to a favorite local eatery for drinks and dinner. (That's Goose's extra dry martini in the photo on the left and Moose's kicky combo of champagne, St. Germain, and other cute ingredients on the right). Now they're vegetating in front of the World Series. My typist is cruising the interwebs in a desultory way and starts poking around in the keyword data on this blog's hit counter. Yeah, she finally says with a yawn, let's steal a page out of Nicole and Maggie's play book and do a Google Q&A post. I think I have enough brain power left to manage that. Boy, searchers are strange, but let's take a stab at answering some of the actual queries that have recently led readers to Roxie's World.

Q: how long does it take to get roxys out of your system
A: Oh, sweet pea, we don't know, but we don't think you should mess around with that $hit at all. You might consult this guy for advice. Or, if you are convinced Roxie's World is where you want to be, you might do a search here on the phrase "lifestyle adjustment" to get sensible but not obnoxious advice about healthy eating and nice things you can do to and with your body. Hint: Abusing Roxicodone is not on the list.

Q: which side of the army uniform does the name type go
A: Not sure, but I'll go out on a limb and say it's either the right or the left. (OK, it's right, but I bet the gayz will change that, don't you?)

Q: Picture of a white person hugging a asian tranny
A: Incredibly, somehow in the nearly 6-year history of this humble dog blog devoted to politics, pop culture, and basketball, we have failed to publish a single photograph of a white person hugging an Asian tranny. We apologize for the oversight and wish to assure readers that our crack team of interweb image trollers will seek to rectify the situation as quickly as possible. But, you know, it may not be easy. Please bear with us. 

Q: refrigerator eats socks
A: Of course it does, darling, and our microwave belches occasionally. You worry about a refrigerator if and only if something smells or there's a puddle of water on the floor. Otherwise, close the door and walk away.

Q: yes we can parody
A: Yes, you can -- and you should. Parody makes life better.

Q: gay stupid album covers
A: Oh, so many to choose from, but start here.

Q: expression of people being kind
A: Not quite sure what you're getting at here, but I've always thought this guy's face had just about the kindest expression I've ever seen. Kindness, compassion, and a playfulness that always makes my typist smile. Even if he isn't what you were searching for, you probably won't mind stumbling across him in the overcrowded emptiness of cyberspace.

Sweet dreams, my pretties. Game 6 is finally over, so it's time for bed. Peace out.


  1. Looks like a great restaurant, although the decor is a bit busy. After a few martinis, all those patterns and colors might be a little much.

  2. Probably not as busy as it looks from the angle of this photo. Moose also boosted the color with CameraBag to make it look even more festive. Very good and friendly place. It's like Cheers with better food.

    re: "finding a pciture" (of anything)...if you haven't seen this clip from Rachel Maddow, it might make you think twice about pulling images off the interwebz. propaganda was never so easy to generate.

    Sorry...I think I gave you an incomplete link. This is the URL for the specific story I had in mind:
    Or, if you're on the site, the date of the video is October 25, 2011, and the clip has the title "Anti-gay marriage group fakes support with doctored photos." When I first viewed it, the clip went on to show how many other political ads were using this strategy, especially ones funded by the Koch bros. I don't see the rest of that clip...and don't have time to look for it. The gist is, you can find stock photos of almost anything on the interwebz...and this is being used to create mis-impressions of support for various causes. The Truthiness Squad has its work cut out!

  5. It's like Cheers with better food.

    I love places like that. We have a French bistro around the corner that is so awesome, and we go there almost every week. One of the waiters is this very snooty formal French dude with a pencil moustache and everything, but he is actually really nice. Last time we were there I gave him a huge hug on the way out, and all the other waiters and the owner were laughing their asses offe!
