Congratulations To Me Tue, 10/15/13 3:27 PM (permalink)
In honor of me, I presume, today, Oct. 15, is National Grouch Day. Speaking as a very grouchy curmudgeon I can only say that I am gratified that this day has finally come. But why in hell did it take so long?.

    Because they didn't realize that you were still around!

      You're just jealous because there's no National Bitch Day.

        What type of gift does one send for either of those two very special holidays?

          Well, for the one they haven't set yet there's always the Wicked Witch of The West Mask, also known as the Margaret Hamilton Forever Mask. For my day just send money.

            For him, Chef Boyardee ravioli.  For me, fois gras, preferably duck.  Oh, and a nice brioche.

              On the surface, there appears to be an inequality in the selections....Chef Boyardee is a prized commodity!

                To celebrate, go to Five Guys and ask for a medium rare burger.  Then grouch about the fact that they won't fry one for you!

                  No No No!  Being a "former' grouch, you are not entitled to celebrate.

                      I can't imagine, not in a lifetime, that you would turn into a "Fieldthistle" clone, but you met Lisa, and the rest is history. Congrats anyhow, on being the BIGGEST Grouch, of the early 21st century!

                            I think if you doubters would check with lleechef you'd find that the only thing that's changed is the amount of non-brown hair in my beard.

                              Oh yes! me too Lisa! I usually only indulge in fois gras once or twice around the holidays but if someone gives me a gift of it, I would be very grateful!!

                                        Funny! I called you a Grinch a couple of years back-sorry I got it wrong. I grew up with a curmudgeon-my Dad. In my estimation, you are 2nd best at it!

                                            Well, for the one they haven't set yet there's always the Wicked Witch of The West Mask, also known as the Margaret Hamilton Forever Mask. For my day just send money.


                                            Oh come on, everyone knows  based on  this year's "Oz The Great and Powerful" that The Wicked Witch of the West was Mila Kunis way before she turned into Margaret Hamilton 


                                            Knowing in advance I'm going to pay for asking, who -- or what -- is Mila Kunis?

                                            The shoe being on the other foot, my 30 year old co-workers want to know "who or what is Margaret Hamilton?"

                                                    is on your side.....

                                                    lleechef isn't working on it. She's too busy getting the newly delivered stove ready for tonight's lobsterfest.

                                                      Interestingly enough, Margaret Hamilton was only 7 years older than Mila was,  when they played the same role yet Ms. Hamilton looked old enough to be Mila's grandmother.
