Man drops crack from pants, eats it in front of officers

Isn't it normally that the pants are dropped from the crack?

Nice to see everyone again. Irene may be at the coast but her wind is here and is playing havoc with our electricity and internet. Would some of you guys in New Jersey or New York see if you can catch the Weather Channel guy Mike Seidel? I think Irene blew him up that way. As for this guy, he's an idiot. Stay safe everyone.

CINDY!! Hunker and gird! We are getting torrential rain in Boston already, and they say it's still SOUTH of Norfolk. I have a bad feeling about this.

Guin - please see the previous post - it is gird THEN hunker.

Don't confuse me. I'm still trying to batten!

I was okay until my internet went out. I'm girding, hunkering, and hanging on. It is very breezy here. Stay safe Guin.

Do they have proof that it was crack? I think not.

I saw Mike Seidel blowing away from Nag's Head, cindy. Will try and nab him if he passes by my window.

Is Mike the guy up to his knees in sand, and leaning 80 degrees to starboard?

The bloggettes would probably like to grid up with a hunk. At least it sounds dirty.

It's just raining in DC. We need a Hurriquake.

That was him Betsy. I hope he gets a large paycheck with good medical benefits. I wouldn't mind girding up with a hunk, Loudmouth. I'm not sure what that would entail but it sounds nice. Since I didn't have a hunk here I had to knit since my internet was off. I finished half of my Christmas presents. Nervous energy can be a good thing.

Just saw a whole bunch of goobers driving around Virginia Beach behind the Westher Channel guy who was three sheets to starboard.

People are nuts.

A number of years ago we had a couple of days in VA Beach and had to leave early due to a hurricane coming in. It was pretty neat to stand on the balcony watching the Atlantic Fleet run out to sea. If it had not been for the kids and wife I would have stayed like a goober.

I lived in Hampton, VA for about 5 years and fortunately we never had a hurricane while I was there. I'm surprised at all the people walking, cycling, and driving around in a hurricane. I look at them as Darwin Award Contestants.

We haven't had a hurricane take this track in NH since 1938, and the blowdown from that one was still evident 30 years later.

I spent the day helping neighbors secure boats, lawn furniture, etc. but it's amazing how many people are doing nothing. When I tell them to do something simple like make ice they seem to think I'm overreacting. We may lose power, phone, internet, etc. for days, but it's a weekend so people think it's time to mow the lawn rather than gird their hunkers.

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind....

I thought it was powder cocaine that you tooted.

I'm proud to say that my crack always stays firmly in my pants, although it may be enhanced with Monkey Butt powder from time to time.

This rock candy tastes like crap.

The blow is almost over here.

Ack! The spammers have learned how to copy and paste!!

It is a dark and stormy morning in Bahstan. Rain and wind, and will apparently worsen as the day goes on.

We bought a pump for the basement, but of course it won't do much good if the power goes out.

Stay safe Guin.

Thanks for the local reportage, Guin. My son works in Framingham (but lives here in Chicago - one of those 'new economy' jobs). He's here this weekend visiting wife/kids/dog, and we're rejoicing that he's stranded an extra day or two with us'n's, instead of battening and girding with y'all.
Take care, and [here's a reference for the far reaches of the geezer bus]: tether your elephants.


Blew over my garden gnome!!!!! Alert the press!

Otherwise just raining here ner Dulles Airport.

Hope you guys on the shore are OK.

Oh Gnome!!

Still have the lights on, not much else going on at the moment. Basement's a bit watery but not too bad.

So are you suffering from a-gnomie???

Seriously...take care!

I usually have a 'Good Morning' email from the Jeff Meyerson's but none this morning. They live in Brooklyn, NY so I hope everything is okay with them.
Has FEMA arrived to help you with your gnome yet Mikey? Again, I hope everyone is okay. Just remember how those of us in N.C. tried to slow Irene down for you. You're welcome.

Just heard from the Meyerson's and they are okay. Now I can go back to worrying about Snooki.

We're fine, cindy. (I see the spammer picked you to copy.) A lot of wind & rain overnight but it was more like your typical nor'easter to me than a typical hurricane, especially the way it hugged the coastline.

We have water and electricity so we're good.

I just noticed the spammer picked on me. I hope he realizes my comment was copyrighted and he owes me big now. *STABS spammer with my knitting needle*. btw, I don't usually mention my passion for knitting because then people think you're a little old lady in a rocking chair. I don't have a rocking chair. I've also been knitting and crocheting since I was 12 years old. So about 17 years now!

So NC you may not be old but you're crotchet-y?

Oh, the gnomanity. The worst we had was a whimpering dog.

I am applying for FEMA reimbursement for pain and suffering. Seeing the gnome on his side, well, it was too awful to describe!

Guin, glad to hear that you are OK!

Jeff! Good to hear that you are OK. My gnome trauma may last a couple of minutes. First an earthquake that nearly make me slosh my tea, and now the gnome! It is the appoco...apocoh... Snooki.

I am very disappointed with the aftermath news coverage. If you're going to put a blindingly hot reporter on a sunny beach interviewing about nearly non-existant damage, at least make her wear a bikini.

I think for the benefit of those guys here who were traumatized by this storm, she should report naked.

I think for the benefit of us girls who are being traumatized by the storm, HE should report naked.

Up here in Northern Michigan on the Upper Lower (as they call it), it's sunny and gorgeous at 68 degrees.

But, many thoughts and prayers for everyone who is dealing with the aftermath of Irene (or as Shirley Jackson Lee would have called her--"Shaniqua").

Where (and who) was this 'blindingly hot reporter' - we need to know, Loudmouth.

Guin! I vote for that as well!

On a scale of 1 - 10 I give this hurricane a 2 at my location because of the gnome issue (I can't talk about it right now).

When TS Faye moved through, the first thing we did was to bring everything that wasn't bolted down inside.
Then I watched as all this patio furniture went by, piece by piece. I went out and caught it (so it wouldn't do more damage down-wind). One more chair and we'd have had the complete set.
After the storm, I located the source and returned their stuff.
Why don't people take some precautions?


Because they are STUPID?

I would have put the lawn furnitue and claimed a finder's fee... But you are a far better person than I am.

Jeff, don't know, ABC news, Nags Head NC. She was a babe even with the ball cap.

Steve, what Mikey said - also inconsiderate. They made a really big deal here this time, and even if the storm did not quite live up to expectations (thankfully) most people did seem to being in their lawn furniture, plants, etc.

Sadly I missed her, Loudmouth. All I got from Nag's Head was Mike Seidel of TWC.

Still got power, and now even sunshine coming through in northern NJ, several miles inland from the Hudson. One harmlessly downed tree limb is all, but a bit of leakage where a tree had bashed our still-to-be-repaired (curse all contractors and insurance companies!) roof on a perfectly calm non-hurricane day in late June. Interim repairs, along with some beefing up yesterday, seem to have held up fine.

That was a far scarier event for us than Irene has been. My daughters were sleeping in on their first day off from school, I was at work and my wife was out on an errand. About 9:30 am, a dead tree uphill from us (from a neighbor's property) fell over from apparent weak root support in rain-saturated ground, it toppled a live tree on the same property, and the top third of the live tree fell onto my youngest daughter's bedroom roof, leaving her with a smashed plate glass window (outer pane only, inner pane intact somehow!); chunks of sheetrock, a ceiling lamp and a souvenir branch about 4 feet long and 4 inches thick on her floor; and a new skylight in her ceiling.

Through sheer luck, no one was hurt and the damage was a lot less than if the whole trunk had hit the house. The whole trunk did flatten my beloved hammock stand.

Needless to say, our kids did not sleep in their bedrooms last night.

We did OK with Irene, then, and I hope everyone else
manages without any severe consequences.


So glad to hear your girls are OK!

Wow, Meanie! They must have been terrified!

Looks like we're done with the worst of it. Our basement flooded but we had a little pump and a shopvac, so managed to get about 90% of the standing water out after a few hours. Carpet's a total loss, but who cares.

Loud, my cousin is a reporter for ABC. I'll ask him who she was.

Glad to hear everyone seems to be okay. It is sunny, beautiful, and 111 here in central Texas. Tired of this - I have lived here a long time. Send rain.

That's scary, Meanie. Glad they're all right.

We walked around the neighborhood a little while ago and there was only one downed tree - the roots pulled right out of the ground, breaking up the sidewalk, and tilted right into the second floor of the house and the neighbor's house.

Fortunately, it just came to rest leaning up against the windows but didn't break them.

The bigger news was: McDonald's was closed on 86 Street, along with two different Starbucks and most every other store. The places that did open were doing excellent business: one pizza place, one Chinese takeout place, a bagel store, a few others. We had some pizza and came home.

As we passed by on the way home it looked like the McDonald's manager was getting ready to open her place up. I think the problem is that with the subways and buses not running it is tough for businesses to get staff enough to open.

Come to think of it, Foxy News breeds all those gorgeous blonds on Murdock's secret volcano island lair. Why don't they do the bathing suit news thing. Some damn rubbish about journalistic integrity in all likelihood.

I'd watch Phil Keating report on things (anything) any day. All day.

i have been reading your comments for years on dave's site but have to agree with guin eye candy is good for the soul and less fattening.

the reason hurricanes get girl names is because they come in wet and wild and leave taking your house and car. Yeah I know it's an oldie it's still a goody.

Glad to hear that you are all doing ok. Monday morning here and all is heading back up to the above 100s again. I wouldn't mind a little tropical storm with torrential rain, anything to revive the dead lawn. The lawn mower guy doesn't even drop by to check on me anymore.

Best to all of you. I'm waiting to hear from my in-laws in North Carolina, hope the electricity is back on!

I always thought hurricanes had women's names because if they had guys names they would wander around lost for a few days before they finally found the correct path they were supposed to follow. Then they would fly by the beaches at 100 mph.

Tree limb landed on my car. Thankfully, no damage other than a few small scratches.

But apparently that's not PC any more, cindy, hence David, Hugo, Ike, Andrew and the rest.

Welcome to the lunatic asylum, justme. Or, as we affectionately refer to it, the geezer bus.

Don't forget T.S.Jose that is now forming in the Atlantic. I heard he has Dave's address too. I hope the people in Florida weren't hurt because Irene bypassed them. They can have the next one. Also glad you're okay, Layzeeboy.

Jeez! I wondered why this crack-eater got so many comments. Now I see it was the hurricane play-by-play. Thankfully, the worst that happened to me was fixing breakfast for two sons and wives from out of town/country with no electricity.
