“Yeah. I was in a house in college, and we would all make late-night runs. It kept us going. Joe’s is a part of Lawrence, just like the Wheel or the Hawk. I can personally thank Joe’s for my freshman 15.”

“I am. Very much so. I wish they’d been open all summer.”

“I’m very happy to hear that they are back. They’re a long-established Lawrence tradition, and I think it’s important to be able to get hot fresh doughnuts well into the night.”

“Yes, because it’s under new management.”

is it disk or disc? Or did they spell it that way because Edwin was the only one that didn't have a "k" in his last name?

I've only been to Joe's once. A friend broke her tailbone so I bought an 18" doughnet there for her.

Gosh, I crack myself up.

because people don't go there in the morning, they go there in the middle of the night. Actually, I don't get it either. But, I always liked it. And, I know some of the new owners and they are good people, so that helps.

sgtwolverine 11 years, 5 months ago

Gootsie, I'm pretty sure it's disc, though most people don't care.

Also, since I don't live in the area, I've never been to Joe's. However, I am happy because it's my birthday today.

acg 11 years, 5 months ago

Joe's has the best chocolate baklava. Mmmm. Now I'm hungry. HAPPY BIRTHDAY Sgt!!! How old today?

trinity 11 years, 5 months ago

YES blue, absolutely.

ok, here's a new slant; are they using transfatty oil to cook these lil' gems in?? or are they using pc cooking oil? hmmmm...

sgtwolverine 11 years, 5 months ago

acg, I am turning 25. I am very much looking forward to any drop in my car insurance rates.

Maybe I should try to party with Dustin Hoffman today. Do you think he'd go for that, omb?

sgtwolverine 11 years, 5 months ago

Perhaps I will take The Edge to Joe's for an 08 August-sized pile of donuts.

Although I see that I also share a birthday with the creator of Magnum PI. That may be the best one. Maybe he'll throw a party with Magnum, TC, Rick and Higgins.

omb, that is an absolutely amazing headline. I can't believe my eyes.

trinity 11 years, 5 months ago

omg, omb...stunningly crazy! yikes.

it took 'till the third paragraph to put a "D" in powDer. aggghhhh, dumbing down, dumbing down...

sunflower_sue 11 years, 5 months ago

Sgt, Happy birthday you young puppy, you!

RI, Sounds like you need to let the spousal unit out for some late night (girls only) margarita and doughnut tasting. OK, that sounds gross. How about we change that to those hallow fried Mexican thingies drenched in honey? (I can't think of what they're called right now...up w/ a puking kid last night and my brain doesn't work this morning.)

An actress living in OP. Sort of like Willie Aames living in Olathe after hitting it big again as "BibleMan"!

sunflower_sue 11 years, 5 months ago

RI, you can never tell what might get you zapped, sometimes. Let me typed with your left hand only??? That'll do it everytime!

craigers 11 years, 5 months ago

sgt, I hate to burst your bubble, but don't count on the insurance going down. Maybe I got hosed, but when I turned 25 last year, I was looking for it too, but didn't get it and my agent said the age is 30 now for the big break. Otherwise though, happy birthday to you man. Just for that I am giving you the day off. Kick your feet up and relax.

sgtwolverine 11 years, 5 months ago

Even if I don't get an insurance break now, I can count on a few in a few years; I have several accidents to come off my record. I can always look forward to that ... assuming I stay away from further trouble.

Hey, craigers, do you think my boss would go for it if I told her you gave me the day off, so I'm going home now? I sure like the sound of that.

mochacat 11 years, 5 months ago

We would like to acknowledge Brad Rettele for doing a great job turning Joe's around over the past year. He really cleaned up the place and served us well. We would like wish Brad well in his new endeavors.

trinity 11 years, 5 months ago

regarding the actress...i'm bored, i followed the link; about got hysterical, because where it read "KU pom squad" i could've sworn it said KU PORN squad!!! too much computer time, today...

and would someone puhLEASE teach this girl the difference between roll/role?? fer gawd's sweet sake! :)

she's looking for "rolls" eh? well by cracky i think this joe's bakery question fits just dandy here! :)

badger 11 years, 5 months ago

Happy Birthday Sgtwolverine!

Or as the LJWorld might say, "Happy Birthay!"

Hope it's a good one.

Eat some donuts. I find that makes any day better.

sunflower_sue 11 years, 5 months ago

Soap pillows? Ha!

OK, I'll play: Yes, about a 1:10 ratio of NaOH to fat. Titration not necessary when I can just plug #s into my SAP calculator. Barrettes are not necessary as I just wear hair in a ponytail. I use Suave (or whatever's cheapest). I do have a pet cock but he's just crows too loud and is not doing his job so I think he'll end up in a pot. Definitely not in a soap pillow...that would just be wrong. :oP

today's my BD too

I asked my daughter if she would take me out to eat dinner and she said no

She said she would bake me a birthday cake and I could eat in in my birthday suit

ehhhh good enough

Big bad 36! Now it's all downhill!

sunflower_sue 11 years, 5 months ago

kschick, Happy to you, too!
p.s. 36 is NOT going downhill! Bite your tongue. Oh, and tell your daughter that you don't need her to take you out. (You've just adopted an 18 year old pool boy and he's going to take you out.) ;)

H_Lecter 11 years, 5 months ago

I wonder how Sue will "counter" on that one!

MomMeg 11 years, 5 months ago

happy birthday sarg and kschick!

I have a great reopening special for joe's -- call it the ljw special, and serve donuts with white power sprinked on them!!

craigers 11 years, 5 months ago

sgt, I think you should try it. Just tell her that somebody with the screenname craigers said for your birthday you could go home. I would like to see that reaction.

hawklet21 11 years, 5 months ago

trinity, you rock for saying "by cracky." completely unrelated, I know, but I had to giggle. I've never been to joe's, but I've heard good things so now I can try it!

Sandra Willis 11 years, 5 months ago

Happy Birthday to sgt. wolverine and Sue as well ... as one who turned 38 her last birthday, never believe that getting older = getting worse I'm not getting older... I'm just becoming more complex.

trinity 11 years, 5 months ago

unrelateddddddd, oh now THAT'S a hoot! ;)

goood good donuts at joe's, toots. a surefire way to kick off a SCHOOL day! ;)

now-get back to work, slacker! :)

craigers 11 years, 5 months ago

blue, it looks like the article is fixed now with the correct term in the title. Does anybody know if that happenned on the actual newspapers delivered this morning? Now that would be hilarious.

sunflower_sue 11 years, 5 months ago

TOB, You are just bad! Bodan has the right of it.
I can say this, TOB, get yourself "fixed" when you're sure you're done and things will be honeymoon good again! :o) No worries! (And an 18 yr old pool boy is never a bad idea!) 'Course, I don't have a pool...

RI, you're right, too. I'll not be ignored! (As much as I'd like to be at times.) :)

sunflower_sue 11 years, 5 months ago

H_L, "counter!" You're a funny one! (With a terribly long memory!)
