Scenes from my driveway, continued x 55

Deadbeat neighbor:  “Man, what a gorgeous day, eh?”

Deadbeat neighbor:  “So gorgeous, in fact, that you probably don’t want to be standing around with me, talking about how gorgeous it is…”


Deadbeat neighbor:  “…which would explain why you took off running the second you saw me, I guess.”

  1. If you want sympathy, look in the dictionary.  You’ll find it somewhere between shot and synchronize.  (I’m trying a delicate compromise here!)

  2. Jeff,

    Now that you got us all curious and shit, how did the real-estate viewing go?

  3. Never mind the house, how ‘bout the RMBB?

    Okay, the house too.  Were there cookies?

  4. The RMBB was a nice gettogether.  Having it at the Denver Press club meant, while there wasn’t a huge amount of space, we were not competing with a bar’s normal assortment of customers.

  5. Oooo. rmbb. comment quietly. small words.

  6. Is what you call an existential “thwap”.

  7. If Jeff ran off the second he saw the deadbeat neighbor, how can he write down what the deadbeat neighbor said?

    I mean, was the deadbeat neighbor shouting at him, or is this post mere speculation?  Or worse, was this post forged?  I DEMAND ANSWERS!

  8. Perhaps Jeff bugs his driveway…

  9. It really bugs Sean M. when people refer to themselves in the third person.

  10. It’s not so bad when you refer to yourself in third person (Bob Dole), but when your wife refers to you in third person (Elizabeth), that’s just downright silly.  I heard her do it on Leno and laughed my ass off the rest of the night.

  11. Or maybe there are several Jeffs…

  12. You mean…the major works of Jeff Goldstein could have been written, not by Jeff Goldstein, but by another writer OF THE SAME NAME???

  13. Very nice of you to send your proxies and minions over to my site and threaten me with physical harm. Once again your Jewish agenda pokes its ugly head.

  14. What the fuck are you talking about?  I haven’t sent anybody anywhere.  In fact, I haven’t even been blogging this weekend.

    Man, you have some serious issues.  Get a fucking life.

  15. HP pokes his ugly little head up here because he’s not getting any attention!  Deny the puny jerk.

  16. Nice day, huh? In Toronto today we had lighting and snow… together at last!

  17. Anti-semitic trash really piss me off.

  18. By the way-

    For all of those concerned, I never wrote that cowardly filled message above. As a matter of fact, I enjoy Jeff’s minions. Also- I like confrontation and threats do not scare me.

    For the record- I am a big supporter of the state of Israel, always have been. So stop with the anti-semitic crap.
