La fête du travail chez Randal Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Use Googled Pictures in Lieu of A Thoughtful Post

Bienvenue, mes amis, to my humble abode.

Pierre, please show our guests in.

"Oui, monsieur. Bâtard radin."

Avez-vous dit quelque chose?

Anyway, make yourselves comfortable, though I must apologize for the lack of room. I hope you've arrived with estomacs vides, for we've managed to import, through our vast overseas réseaux d'affaires, a rare Yankee delicacy with the utterly bizarre name of barbeque. Honestly, have you heard of anything so ridicule? Nonetheless, I've been assured that it's quite wonderful despite its obviously plebian appearance. Although I had to laugh, ha ha ha HA ha, when my American acquaintance told me that they eat it with *gasp* their fingers!

Wait. I hate large groups of people. I don't know what I was thinking. Must be the heat. Everyone get the hell out, fucking moochers. Don't make me call the gendarmes from St. Paul.

In your own kind of totally fucked up way, you are an inspiration to us all Randal.

No really, I mean it!

Oh damn, you don't believe me. Don't make me get out a stack of Bibles and start swearing. I will do that if forced to.

FranIAm said...

Ha - you just left me a comment. I love it when we comment simultaneously.

Happy Labor Day, you French spewing little frog, you.

Christopher said...

Now Randall, how did you manage to take a picture of my backyard? If I'd known, I would've mowed the lawn.

Dean Wormer said...

At least you know how many houses you have.

Utah Savage said...

You probably have room for me to come and stay for a while. I'll take my barbeque avec the fine black man doing the cookin. We'll eat en coucher.

Randal Graves said...

fran, that's disturbing to think about, whereas the simultaneous commenting, now that's just plain sexy!

karen, oui, oui - you know, I don't know how to type that stereotypical Frenchie laugh.

christopher, if that's your backyard, you need to start having everyone over for a giant BBQ.

dean, how do you think I got to be king? Math skills.

utah, come on over and chow down. Dammit, that BBQ really does look good. Now I'm hungry.

My Inner French Girl said...

Oh, Randal, you? Barbecue? How gauche. Next thing you know you're going to be telling me that you drink beer with that pedestrian food.

Hey, save me some ribs. I have a hankerin'.


Our Juicy Life said...

i hate large groups of people too, so I'll help with the bbq and cleanup, won't talk much and I'll just hang in the backyard, you won't even know I'm there.

susan said...

Am I too late for the BBQ? I got lost in the maze.

American Hill BIlly said...

Yes, Happy Labor Day. Inviting people to a barbeque potluck, and beer bash???? There's the ticket invite them, and then figure out how to get rid of them minus food, and spirits!!!LOL

Nice pictures. Kind of small quarters you've got there, but I'm sure that after you start making more money you'll move into a larger nicer place :)

Randal Graves said...

marjorie, don't worry, mon ami américain assures me that this Old Milwaukee is the best beer available.

OJL, that's perfectly fine since my idea of a large party is about 5 or 6 people. Which I guess if I had a house as big as Versailles wouldn't be a problem. Everyone gets their own wing!

susan, I knew I forgot to leave out rolls of string.

AHB, exactly, "Hey man, I've gotta clean up, I've got work tomorrow, get the hell out!"

"But it's only midnight, man!"

tom, I'm hoping I get that raise so I can get this quaint summer home I've had my eye on.

Border Explorer said...

I feel soooo much safer knowing that the cops have things under control in St. Paul. Fucking anarchists!

Thanks, Randal, for putting my mind at ease. You rock.

Randal Graves said...

I just checked CNN and the only mention on the front page is under an RNC header a ways down the page: Police say security in St. Paul 'going well.'


Fascism can creep along so much easier with media assistance.

What is that furry triangle thingie that guy is holding?

Non, Je ne regrette rien said...

To quote another fellow blogger (bete de jour), I do believe you are a bit mental.

Randal Graves said...

diva, hey, only the fanciest threads for my staff.

JNRR, as if that's a bad thing.

Is that guy at the grill cooking the "other" white meat? with his fingers no less?
