Do The Padilla’s Speak English At Home?

Filed under: ?, lessons learned, Neal's friends, What the hell is going on here? — timbuys @ 8:52 am


P1: Said no teens ever.

P2: You know, because they don’t have representative government in our home country.

P3: I no-a speak-a da idiomatic-a Ingles-a, Karina, mi amiga. Como se dice ‘blow you off’?

Neutral points: Not gonna google Karina Hartley, token libertarian.



  1. In our city, we have a student rep on the school board. Doesn’t do much, but the last one got a free ride to Union College, so it must look good. Meeting I went to (LP was getting an award) had 0 civilians after we left, which may be part of how we got an insanely expensive rebuild on the HS started.

    Karina Hartley, naughty librarian, is just some Instagram model.
    It’s her mother, Nina, that you should Google, at work, surrounded by colleagues.

  2. P4: “no…I said that I would blow them if they would listen to me, but even that didn’t work”

  3. Thanks for the Zappa contribution, timbuys. I’ll talk Zappa ANYTIME(ha). “But I don’t do drugs.” Priceless, Baby. You da Man.
    And hitorque, thanks for your encouragement. I cannot do EVERYTHING to end racism, but I can do SOMETHING. I usually like to wait until the end of the day to answer in return because I believe in “Let the people speak” and, again, GREAT contributions from everybody yesterday but that said, thanks for touching upon something dear to my heart.

    During the day, she’s mild-mannered Clarissa Kent. At night she becomes LIBERTARIAN!!!!!!!!!!
    Probably not an idea to run by a network executive but worth a try.

    We’ve taken a quantum leap from the Padilla’s living room to the aftermath of the school board meeting. I’ll never get used to Thorpiverse’s running behind on schedule so we leap from one dimension to the other and let our imagination fill in the details.
    But enough bitching. I will say that the Libertarian wish list might have gotten somewhere(at least one department head and one coach be a Libertarian, for example) had they not pushed their luck and also demanded that the custodial staff contain at least one person with L views. I’m sure there’s a janitor working night shift at MHS who’s in charge of mopping the 2nd floor bathrooms with some strong opinions. Let it go at that, the school board said. No wonder why she got blown off.

  4. FWIW, at least we don’t get the constant reminder that the dialogue is “in the Bandar tongue.”

  7. Good stuff today, as usual. Forgive me for not adding my own inane reactions– mostly been fueling the snowblower and assuring friends in other parts of the country that this is not the Blizzard of ’88.

  8. franku2016, I’m sorry it took so long but I felt the same way about your comment the other day about the towel fight. God, that was funny. OMG!!!!!!!!! I got competition!!!!!!!(ha). Seriously, that was funny AND appropriate and kinda sorta punctured a bad plotline made worse by an inexplicable melee in the shower. You da Man.
