Just to be on the safe side, I'll sleep with one eye open for a while.
(I'm guessing sister. I see the resemblance, or at least I'm imagining one.)
And I do admire you finding a way to be mad about the tax vote on the grounds that it didn't happen when it couldn't have. Not many cornflake bowls get by you unpeed-in.
But maybe some day I'll ask you to do a service for me. If I ever do, you can bet your bippy it won't be for something as mundane as this, though.
This line comes early in the movie, when Don Vito agrees to do a solid for an undertaker, but in exchange for the promise of a future favor.
Turned out later the favor was rendering open-casket presentable the body of his bullet-riddled eldest son Santino. So I guess upvoting a cat lady isn't too much to ask compared to that.
And actually, you should go see Godfather I & II (or read them, which is what I did). III is optional. Tho I guess the horse & the tampons pretty much summarize the pop culture aspects...
I voted already! :-P
I've reread that article several times, and I literally can not make sense of the arguments offered by assorted R's (and some D's) quoted here on why they won't vote to drop the cuts.
One raviolo, two ravioli. Etc.
Once a word becomes anglicized, you can pluralize it with the usual English rules. Cannoli is indeed the Italian plural, and one such tasty treat in Italy is uno cannolo. Just as one ravioli is a ravolo: but no one eats one freakin' raviolo.
And in the sales situation, you go into a bakery or cafe in Italy and the sign doesn't say "Cannolo" it says "Cannoli" because they have more than one for sale. So the English, fools that they were, made the Italian plural the English singular, hence cannolis.
Love your avatar!
Canuck: are you talking Mike's Pastry in Boston's North End?
OOOOMG!!! (and then you take your cannoli next door to that cafe, and get a really good latte to go with them.
P.S. I wasn't trying to start a grammatical thread, though I appreciate Chicago Fan's input; I was just trying to quote The Godfather accurately. But I may have misremembered.
@10 Please do not speak for all women. If you'd like to run for the Great Representative for All Women Everywhere for next year, get someone to nominate you at the upcoming meeting. Thanks!
Now, re: Women and The Godfather. My sister is a huge fan, so much so that my brother and I gave her a large framed print of the wedding portrait from the movie to her for HER wedding.

because Pelosi is the most incompetent sack of shit ever sent to congress.
glad she's on your team.....
everyone should at least be able to recognize Godfather quotes, except anything coming from the godawful Godfather III.
i don't vote for anonymous people's cats in general. but just because this is an awful precedent, i'm voting for the woman who can beat Colleen K.
And Cow (not even touching that...), sorry, maybe you didn't get the memo, but I DO, in fact, speak for women everywhere! We love purple thongs, donuts (but not the ones with raisins), wittle cute bunnies, and we really don't like to swallow, no matter what we say in bed. How's that? :)
I want to know which advise columnist she has pimping votes for her--Dear Abby, perhaps?
She's an unstoppable force of nature.
I've hit a bit of a dilemma: I think a couple of the other essays are better.
Oh, wait, I guess I don't care about the integrity of the Purina(R) Tidy Cats(R) for Multiple Cats: The Search for America's Most Welcoming Home contest. And according to the official rules, there's no prohibition against this sort of vote solicitation. In fact, it appears it's would be completely within the rules to offer people compensation for their votes, though it doesn't really seem worth it.
Vote cast; Colleen's going to need the help, as she's trailing Joan A. and Jessica W. by a considerable amount.
@8: Yeah, the line is sort of backward, if anything this situation would lead to Slog calling on Dan to do us a service. Okay Dan, I'm calling-in my favor: I insist that you write a weekly, nationally-syndicated sex-and-relationship advice column, published in independent weekly periodicals near us. Also, do a podcast. And do it all with snarky wit and without self-censorship. That's a fair exchange for clicking "Like", right?
Also, quite enjoyed this hilariously hijacked thread.

Dan does not watch Glee.
Awaiting further instruction
Do you think Dan is going yell at us again now? *sniff, sob*
...Now I demand you tell us a story about your recent Colbert Report taping to appease us. Well, me.
ook ook ook?
OMG, this thing goes on till the 15th?

So... it's not enough for us to just get more votes than this Joan A. character. It has to be an utterly demoralizing victory, to so crush her spirit that she can't tart her place up for the judges.
You owe me big Dan!
This does seem awfully out of character for Dan. A cat litter contest? He must owe her big.
your many votes count for 10% of the second round vote. the other 90% of the second round vote goes to "celebrity judges."
she doesn't move on because of this 10% victory. this contest you are rigging is already rigged - the like button is just a way for them to get more hits on their contest page.
don't be surprised at a backlash by the judges for the ridiculous rigging of this contest.
