I don’t know, do you 007

Christopher Hurt, like your girlfriend, really wants to believe you, Motor Trend Magazine.
Pontiac G8 to Return - As a Chevy! - Motor Trend
“It appears the Pontiac G8 will make a comeback -- only this time wearing Chevy badges. Three GM sources have confirmed to Motor Trend the Australian-built sedan will re-appear on the U.S. market as a Chevy in the coming year. And it won’t be called Impala. Read more about the Pontiac G8 returning.”
Chevrolet Caprice PPV
“The all-new 2011 Chevrolet Caprice PPV (Police Patrol Vehicle) from GM Fleet and Commercial.”
A reference may be made to the ability to move sofa accessories, like your girlfriend.
Queen Fat Bottom Girls

Also, “Be cool, don’t turn around.”
Daily U-Turn: What you missed on 11.29.10
“Quick Spin: 2012 BMW 1 Series M Coupe We get our hands on an M Coupe prototype to see if BMW’s hottest 1 Series can live.”
Earlier I heard that snow was falling today, and heard about the passing away of a few:
Sad news: Dr. Dan Radakovich dies

“Dr. Dan Radakovich, former executive vice president of Academic Affairs, passed away Nov. 23. As dean of instruction and then as executive vice president for academic affairs at JCCC, Dr. Radakovich was instrumental in establishing the college’s relationship with Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railway, served as the college’s representative to the League for Innovation in the Community College, helped lead a movement to establish a program of professional development focused on teaching and learning that became part of the League’s I-Stream service, and helped establish many of the college’s articulation and 2+2 agreements with neighboring universities. He retired in 2005 after 22 years at JCCC and more than 40 years in education.

A memorial mass will be held at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 30, at Holy Trinity Catholic Church, 13615 W. 92nd St., Lenexa. Visitation will be from 1-2 p.m. that day at the church. The family requests donations to the Kansas City Hospice or a JCCC scholarship fund created in his memory. (You can send donations to the Foundation office, 207 CC, box 25, or go through You can share special memories by e-mailing”
“The beloved actor from Airplane and the Naked Gun franchise passed away on Sunday. Fresh Air remembers Nielsen with highlights from a 1993 interview, in which he discussed his transition from dramatic roles in The Poseidon Adventure and Forbidden Planet to starring in spoofs and parodies.”
Much can be said for clean living.
Student Environmental Alliance plans waste audit day Dec. 9

“The JCCC Student Environmental Alliance will conduct a waste audit from 9 a.m. to noon Thursday, Dec. 9 outside the Student Center and gymnasium.

The students will collect trash cans from each building, then dump the contents onto a tarp, sort the trash and see how much could have been recycled.”
I believe that to be ‘stupid. I think that they are on drugs.

However, ‘the idiot behind the wheel’ is not always to blame.
Why ‘Safe Roads’ Are Often Anything BUT Safe, Except For Cars
“The great freeway battles of the Sixties and Seventies are over. It’s safe to say few new freeways will be punched through existing neighborhoods. But transportation engineers are still busily at work updating and improving existing roads, generally by widening them, adding lanes, smoothing curves...”
I could not suspend disbelief during The Simpsons on 38 the Spot! & Holly Starr. A GPS-tracking chip would not work while disconnected and without power from a mobile phone. I don’t know, do you, 007?

Now means my time to go the Mainstreet Credit Union and the home of Don Denton Turley.

This is senseless 001

This is senseless.
1199SEIU to Drop Health Coverage for Workers’ Children - Metropolis - WSJ
“One of the largest union-administered health-insurance funds in New York is dropping coverage for the children of more than 30,000 low-wage home attendants, union officials said.”
This is senseless.
The People v. Bush
“As a former journalist in the Middle East, I was moved by legendary prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi and his passionate call for action against George W. Bush for taking our troops to war on a lie: ‘Over 100,000 people died, including over 4000 American soldiers. Now what?’

As a journalist and an attorney, I decided to run for Attorney General in Vermont on a pledge to prosecute Bush under state laws. Then I wrote about the experience and the accountability movement I encountered along the way in The People v. Bush. Now I’m imploring you to take the next step: buy this book and send a message to Bush that his lies will not go unanswered, that his deeds will not go unpunished. No one, not even the president, is above the law. Thank you!”
This is senseless.
The People vs. Bush: How to Prosecute a President
“Only when we join together and insist that enough is enough will we be put George W. Bush and his co-conspirators in their place: out of the bookstores and behind bars, where they belong.”
This is senseless.

The poniard is afoot.

Christopher Hurt is functioning with higher than normal, higher than expected levels of lucidity this morning. I am even remembering errands to run this afternoon!
Congress is back - send them a letter opposing the Brown Bailout
“Every person that lets their legislator know that they don’t approve of the inappropriate bailout of a company that does not need it - and which places its competitor at a highly unfair disadvantage - can make a difference.”
Bringing a knife to a gunfight
“The act of taking an amount of any substance to a gathering which is obviously insufficient.”
Han shot first - Star Wars
“From original 1977 version of Star Wars that George Lucas would like you to forget. Han shoots first, as it should be (or ‘Han shot ONLY’ if you want to nit-pick). ;-) The DVD that this video clip comes from is non-anamorphic (not natively widescreen) because it comes from an old laserdisc master.”
The poniard Rhoads is afoot later, like your girlfriend.

Every twenty years

Christopher Hurt would like to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.

Twenty years ago, I moved into the room that my father and grandfather built for my sister Pam. Today I traded spaces with my father, and thus I have had a long and trying day.

Having Huey Louis asking, “If this is it,” Christopher Hurt thanks Heaven for “ayu’s EURO MEGA MIX ‘Y&Co. Mix’”.

I briefly passed my family while en route to the kitchen, and they started to discuss turkey after seeing something on Turner Classic Movies. Father said something about roasted ham, and sister Kimberly asserted that the proper ham is smoked, glazed, and spiral-cut; she recently started at Honeybaked Ham. I re-entered the room, and told them that they were all baked.

Christopher Hurt found this through the Ron White - Official Site, and we all certainly ‘kneaded’ this, like your girlfriend.

Bread bread there is so much bread everyone brought bread!

Attached Ladies Waiting

Christopher Hurt has just read the best title to any junk message that he has ever received: Attached Ladies Waiting.

Oh, okay, so this is the opposite of what I was thinking. Attached is not about the ladies being attached to the message, but ladies already in a relationship with someone else, like your girlfriend. Wow, this was definitely a junk message in my Windows Live Hotmail.

Need to read again 014

Never take anyone for granted, except your wife or girlfriend, because assuming that she is speaking to you, she will at least tell you that she feels that she is taken for granted.

Christopher Hurt needs pants and more urgently needs a new belt. Although Sears is written on my card, they accept MasterCard at JCPenney, where I at least know where to find things.

I have found for what I was looking at the JCPenney outlet store, which is just north of the Walmart. The light to check the engine in my Chevy Cavalier lit again. At O’Reilly Auto Parts, I bought a new downstream oxygen sensor, which I will install sometime this week.

Christopher Hurt thinks South Park is correct. If neither Carl Edwards nor the Red Bull Racing Team are going to get to ‘ravish’ Miss Sprint Cup instead of Jimmie Johnson every year, then why watch NASCAR?

Christopher Hurt believes that one cannot subsist on Diet Coke instead of Dr Pepper, and has at least one friend who would agree (Screwed Up Texan), and three friends who would disagree (Nifer is perhaps among them).
Basically to subsist means to survive, David; in World Geography in ninth grade, I first learned the word with regard to agriculture. Most of the agriculture in the world is subsistence agriculture, which means that people are only growing enough crops or raising enough livestock to just survive.
I will not be taking a holiday, like your girlfriend, although Johnson County Community College will be taking a holiday for most of this week. Yeah, like your girlfriend, this week we will be re-arranging rooms in the house. Clint Vrazel, we will see you next weekend.

At press time, I was too tired to convert 27.925 miles per gallon to 8.392 liters per 100 kilometers. Christopher Hurt feels weird that work is so slow, but time is going so fast!

I don’t know, do you 006

Christopher Hurt found the upstairs TV left on ABC Family, and now it’s off. Other than some laundry, I intend to be writing at least one composition for Ottawa University, but first do to something about this hunger I have inside. Where shall I go in the City of Mission, KS: KFC - Kentucky Fried Chicken, RJ’s Bob-Be-Que Shack, or the Schlotzsky’s Deli?

Christopher Hurt will likely be joined by Laura Chamberlin at the Cinemark in Merriam, Kansas for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, showing around three o’clock this afternoon.

Number two hundred

Being at work on Saturday, I will only be at work until noon today, like your girlfriend. I might try to finally do something about the title for my Chevy Cavalier, which has not belonged to the Bank of America for months.
This post is number two hundred to this blog!
Since January 15, this blog has been written toward the simple purpose of blogging. With its glass equipment, modern science has never once stepped along the wide continent to say why this author is not living as one partner in a married couple, but a proud man without a lovely wife. Sigh, sometime I shall enjoy a myofascial for my upper body, especially for my shoulder.
Myofascial release - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“Myofascial release is a form of soft tissue therapy used to treat somatic dysfunction and accompanying pain and restriction of motion. This is accomplished by relaxing contracted muscles, increasing circulation, increasing venous and lymphatic drainage, and stimulating the stretch reflex of muscles.”
I bought fuel today, and my Cavalier posted 26.990 miles per gallon or 8.683 liters per 100 kilometers.
Later I waited at the Johnson County Department of Motor Vehicles to register the Cavalier. Although I love their queuing system, I am unsure how to feel about their paging system. I now have my Kansas title receipt; the real title will be in the mail in ten days.
Schlotzsky’s Pick Your Chicks, Route 66 Sweepstakes
“Pick your chicks and sign up for a chance to win a 2011 Camaro or one of 300 Schlotzsky’s gift cards! Play now at!”
I had to have a celebratory meal using a coupon to Schlotzsky’s Deli: a free 20-oz. drink and bag of chips with the purchase of a chicken sandwich. I chose the large Sedona Chicken sandwich, which was twice the size of a medium sandwich.
I would like to be so especially generous to certain one-term president.
Bush: Obama deserves to govern ‘without criticism from me’
“Fresh off a book tour for his memoir Decision Points, former president George W. Bush broke ground for his presidential library today, saying he would not use a new policy institute to second-guess the decisions of President Obama.”
One of my friends from Project Improv once said about me, of which some I have also noted myself:
“Chris H.
First impression: This guy has an extensive vocabulary for puns.

Likes: Your hate for saint Patrick day and your love for cars.
Dislikes: That you like every status i put up, weather it is a good status or a bad one. It helps to know context sometimes. Also hate how much you rag on Obama.

Confession: I think you sometimes you do not fully apply yourself. Your full potential is much more, strive for doing your best in all things.”
Christopher Hurt is watching MythBusters on the Discovery Channel.

Later I’ll watch new South Park.
Pro Concrete Designs: concrete polishing, concrete staining and engraving
“Transform your ordinary old concrete driveways and sidewalks into a beautiful work of art with concrete engraving and staining!”
Just learned while watching, The Onion will have a new series on Comedy Central.
Study: Majority Of Highlights Boring
“UNIVERSITY PARK, PA—A three-year study of highlights across all major sports concluded that 94 percent of televised top plays and incredible displays of skill were in fact pretty boring.”
In closing, the only parallel, which I would like to be drawn, is to episode 200 of South Park, and I dont know why.

Please note the the preceding was not sent from my phone. I cannot tag anyone in posts from my phone. I have also been characteristically obnoxious, both by implying that I was close to a rabbit or in my car, and by entering the preceding explanation.

The liberal media frequently say something like, “Forget What Voters Said, It’s Time to Raise Taxes.” I am thankful for the Media Research Center.

I don’t know, do you 005

Like your girlfriend, Christopher Hurt thinks Geeks Are Sexy. Actually, I love KUDL, and to answer your question, David, Pandora is available through on a desktop or notebook (laptop) computer.
Back in my day, when someone said, “I can’t Gopher that,” besides a song by Hall & Oates, one meant that one could not find something on the Internet.
When I say AutoZone, I actually meant to say Advanced Auto Parts, which are the words I spoke for Google Navigation. The connection returned no code and the light for me to check the engine was off when I started the car the next time.

Yes, I paid $197 to them and got nothing. The ironic thing is that I learned about it on a site for J-body cars, like my Chevy Cavalier.

Christopher Hurt has tabs saved in Mozilla Firefox at home that will become links in this NetworkedBlogs later this afternoon. I added too much cherry flavoring to my Dr Pepper at the drink fountain in QuikTrip. The clerk used a paper sack for my two breakfast sandwiches, from which I now have:
A PAPER SACK PUPPET! WHEE! I know this much is true; this much is true!
I bought some plastic bins at Sears Grand in Merriam, Kansas. Effectively, I have ‘organization’ for everything that was in my car; the bins are stacked on the floor and I can’t let the stuff get wet. Some of my Web wanderings start with lists:

A rewarding civic experience

Go Team Bruchman!

Rob Bruchman, candidate for state representative, District 20, is center.

Last night at Overland Park Marriott, I was one to Remember November, I ate more pita bread and hummus than at any other time in my life, and sang with “Hare Hare Yukai” on the way home to watch Family Guy. I took no BENADRYL® this morning, and the Hot Pockets and Dr Pepper are tasting especially good today.
I just had a good conservation with Fred Krebs.

I just saw Sam Brownback via Skype. @NiferHoneycutt was correct; Skype is pretty amazing, and even more so, thanks to Brownback.
Christopher Hurt thinks that one should definitely walk behind the reporter, with a piece of cake, during a live, newsroom shot. Stay classy, KCTV-5.

Christopher Hurt is glad to see that Roberta Eveslage is being defeated in District 38!
Incidentally, the other times are during the after-parties at the Roving Imp Theater; I usually have more of the tortilla chips and salsa than I usually have of the pita bread and hummus.

Overachievers are truly among the Democrats, not only having lost many state offices, to lose the majority of seats in the House, they only needed to lose 38, but they lost 52; that’s dedication.

Web Wanderings 013

As part of the Chopper Shopper Fuel Rewards Program, I used my Chopper Shopper Rewards card to save on fuel at QuikTrip. My Chevy Cavalier posted 27.731 miles per gallon or 8.451 liters per 100 kilometers, which is disappointing, like your girlfriend.

How car restoration works - Holy Kaw!
“Some people dream of owning a brand new Escalade or Maybach, but others have bigger -- and older -- dreams. If you’d rather drive a classic, the accessibility and ease of car restoration can turn that vision into reality.”
Because of Chevrolet, I thought that I should also share this SEMA-related link.

Whirlwind weekend 004

To the Encyclopedia Dramatica, Unicron would say, “You exaggerate.” Yes, I think, David, that your analogy is accurate that Raksha is to me, what Diane Duane is to Nifer, or was, or whatever.

Every weekend is not a whirlwind weekend, although by appearances this last weekend certainly qualifies. The whirlwind is not quite over: the United States has a general election on Tuesday, November 2. This election is called a mid-term election, occurring in the middle of the president’s term.

“Don’t go naked to the polls like model Rudy Otwell (left) and local comedian Keith Curtis. Ink’s Election Guide has you covered on the candidates and issues.”
A rewarding civic experience at least for the last two months, I have been spending a lot of time working with Denton on a local campaign for a state representative, especially weekends. I took some BENADRYL® Saturday morning, and later drank some Dr Pepper to counteract the drowsy effects.
“Remember to vote tomorrow! Click this link to remind your friends: (via”
Before that, Friday was payday, and the afternoon was rather busy because I had to mail off three bills. My class show was Friday, October 29 at 7:00 p.m., preceding the Next Big Improv Show, and no one, whom I invited, came to either show. I will to continue to promote my show on social media, but I have not decided if I will again use an e-mail message.

“Professional Voice Talent Delivers Quality Voice Overs! Radio and Television Commercials, Narrations, Audio Books, Business Presentations and More!”
The campaign made this weekend a whirlwind weekend. At 8:30 a.m. Saturday, I met Denton at his house. After some minor confusion, we met the candidate at the offices of the Johnson County Republican Party. Saturday consisted of Denton knocking on doors and speaking to voters.
Christopher Hurt gets to be boss today; he has got the easy job.
Yes, I held the list, and directed Denton to the appropriate addresses. Saturday night I returned to the Roving Imp Theater for another evening of quality shows, like your girlfriend, and I had to leave soon after the shows like on Friday.

Denton had requested that I be at his house at 9:00 a.m. on Sunday. Our mission was different this time; we left targeted fliers at apartment residences. Afterward, we played Mario Kart on Nintendo Wii.
Later, I spent too much money on ***damn candy to give away, and John had an interesting view on the subject:
“Think of it as people did in the early 1900s - a bribe so that children & teenagers don’t destroy your property.”
Denton amended:
“So that they didn’t destroy my property.”
After another round of Mario Kart, I stopped, while returning home, at the Hy-Vee in the City of Mission, Kansas and bought some Hot Pockets and Dr Pepper. I put groceries in the trunk instead of the front seat! I am again excited to use the trunk for first time since who knows when!
