Happy Birthday RapidEye!
What Amy and Ralph said!
Goodnight :Ugh, up too late:
That will teach me to go to bed late.
Oh Van…. you know you cant be taught you wild at heart boy you
The are four comments!
I see what you did there, Captain
I count five.
Counting doesn’t work any more. All someone has to do is insert a comment somewhere and the count goes out the window.
Morning Pan :cheerful:
but we will know in our hearts 🙂
It’s all fun and games until someone loses a number
or loses something worse 😀
looks like 6 to me
I hate to sound like a harpy but didn’t you have backups Jack? Tsk, tsk, tsk.
“didn’t you have backups Jack”
Don’t ask, don’t tell.
CP: yesterday’s Alt Latino
Oh, also, sick cat update: she’s still very sick, but improving. She will walk on her own to get water, but isn’t eating yet. She purred some last night and this morning, which was a relief. Mostly she just curls up and snoozes. Poor Gertrude! I am giving her pills – not fun, but if it works, it’s worth it!
CP: All Songs Considered
If you can stand these guys, yesterday’s show is pretty neat. New Black Keys so far.
It’s new album day at Six String Bliss. Cover versions of songs the players are embarassed to admit they like. 🙂
Rhanks forh rha rhink, Rhett!
I will buy a backup HD (note: I was gonna say “when the money-bleeding stops”, but that would be a ridiculous statement) sometime next year.
I would really hate to be wrong about this, but I fully expect that this latest computer death was only the motherfuckerboard.
Ok peeps, Jack asked for the comments to be padded. To that end, I give you the ABC’s of accounting. Boring I know but what are you going to do.
Two things to keep in mind. Obviously I’m going to use Canadian accounting rule so if it differs that’s your issue not mine
Two: this is only terms I remember, not necessarily all terms
And three (yah I know) I may have to quit part way as my Boo is coming over to watch a movie. If I do stop, I’ll contine tomorrow
Thank you, Bunny. As long as “L” is for “Loonie”.
Dammit WordPress I am not posting too fast, your just too slow!
It’s World Philosphy Day, Kant can be used without appearing to be negative.

I said, I’m not posting too fast!
Error in recording (tsk, tsk, tsk)
Financial statements (and everything else associated with the word “financial”
First in, first out (yeah I know, inset dirty joke here)
I’m sorry EssBee, I don’t know what that means, is it an US accounting acronym?
earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization
it kinda means “profit”
it’s actually EBITDA
Ah, we cll that net profit
I’m def not an accountant. I have a master’s in English. They just make me do the finance reporting and services deferrals.
Actually, we include interest and amortizating as regular expenses. Our tem then is net income before taxes
Income (tax, statements and everything else. Just assume I’m using words once but they all usually have other word fooling them)
Integration – tho maybe a A&M term, not an acct one
Nope that’s a term we use. Admittedly I forgot that one.
Initial public offering
I’m thinking of a line from a certain Prince song here.
Just in time
Ok I admit, I can’t think of anything that starts with k

Point of sale
Sorry, had a phone call.
Where was I …
That’s it for now. Boo texted saying she’s on her way. Will do Q to Z tomorrow.
S – Shrimp coat

Q – Quebec Nordiques.
ummm. Concert pole/lap dance? Really?
Leave Britney alone!
Not until she leave us alone. And by alone I mean no more spreading the crabs
CP: Cat Claw — The Kills
Well the Halo Anniversary game arrived today, Halo in HD, woot!
I wish one of you gamers could come over and show us how to play Dragon Age. We can’t figure it out!
Not me, I wouldn’t touch the game with a bargepole.
Is that a political statement?
Nah, not a type of game I like.
EssBee: Are you playing Origins? You’ll need to use tactics.
It is Origins, but we haven’t even gotten out of the courtyard yet!
Type “N” to go “North”?
Hopefully this will help you for the later parts of the game:
Have you just started? It sounds like you are playing a human noble?
We got the game months ago, put it in the PS3, tried to play, and gave up!
I still haven’t finished DA:O. I’m at the final battle and figured out I skipped too many side mission and thus opprotunities to level up my character.
Video games = a luxury for which I do not have the time..
I just volunteered to help out at Phx Comicon 2012…
And… accepted a part-time job in addition to my day job (#SoMyKidsCanHaveChristmas)
As if I was already not here enough.
Yep, did that last year (part time job). Glad I don’t have to this year. (knock on wood)
It’s odd to have people in my life who are SO self-focused. I have a friend who I talk to every day who might ask me how I’m doing 1 out of every 10-12 days. So odd . . .
ME. Me me me.
Enough about me. Let’s talk about you. What do you think of me?
Awesome thoughts about an awesome chick.
Chicka chicka boom boom.
That was me talking about what I think of EssBee – FYI
I’m not an accountant either, but I am a biller. I make sure that all my company’s customers receive bills for everything we do for them. Sometimes it’s stressful. It’s nice to have the Deadpan, where I can relax and laugh at the jokes. 🙂
*makes mental note – “post more jokes”*
In honor of World Philosophy Day:
Bruce’s Philosophers Song
And to continue with the theme of accounting:
The Accountancy Shanty
Ah, I needed that smile 🙂
Both cool, Amy!
CP: Jeremy — Pearl Jam
Amy, I’ll be a little concerned if The Lumberjack Song comes next.
LOL! No, I wasn’t going to link to that one.
Does anyone want a DVD of the BSG movie Razor? I realized that I have 2 copies somehow. Will mail to a good home.
GOOD HOME!!!! HERE!
ME!!!!!!! ME ME ME! Enough about you lets talk about MEEEEEEEEEEEEEee
Interesting blog post about a writter who lived on my block in small town Kansas. My twelve year old self remembers him as odd, but interesting.
That is really cool, Rhett!
Glad you liked, Ess. 🙂
CP: Yes, I’m Your Angel — Yoko Ono
When you listen to Yoko Ono, the terrorists win.
I didn’t mean to!
She’s not your angel?
From a Slate review of the new Twilight flick:
““How badly are you hurt?” murmurs studly but ethereal vampire Edward Cullen (Robert Pattinson) to his human bride, née Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart), on the morning after their wedding night. No no no no — it’s not what you’re thinking. Edward’s superhuman and indeed inhuman strength has left Bella’s arms and torso covered with bruises (and, infamously, has shattered the headboard above their bed). Devotee of the union of Eros and Thanatos that she is, Bella digs it, and wants more. ”
Not in a hurry for this one, but will DVD it since I read all the books. In time.
In other news… my lower lip is swollen on my right side. There’s nothing there… just swelling.
Kinda wondering if Lejon’s cat sneaked into my room and whapped me in the mouth last night.
*glowers at cat*
What the hell is a “cheque”
I have probably said this in some way before.
When we make the television series of the Deadpan, we need to get Adam Scott in the role of Jack.
I’d try casting everybody else, but I’ve met so few of you…
I could be played by a cardboard stand-up of any number of “B-list”, character actors.
(wait … is Buscemi considered “B-list” or “C”?)
Shannon Hoon is dead, otherwise, I’m kinda a ringer for him or vice versa – or was once.
People have of late been comparing me to John Krasinski.
I’m not sure yet on Lo Pan…
Everybody else feel free to cast for your own parts!
Well my arteries are scared, but my stomach is intrigued.
Link skips to the interesting part.
Financial considerations are such that I am killing my cellphone.
Correspondingly, I may find myself in a surge of creativity being stuck on overnights without ready internet access…
Sorry to hear it, Boze. About the cellphone, I mean. I’ll take your word for it about Adam Scott.
It’s more about his all-around vibe, than necessarily about look…
And that’s Adam Scott, not my cellphone.
Rhett, have you seen this?
Would the soundtrack be by My Chemical Romance?
Oh they made it? I knew the idea was being batted around but I didn’t know they completed it. I like the song that preceded it.
The ghosts of a space program past:
“Let’s face it, there’s no way the LOHAN team is going to go mob-handed to Woomera if it can’t source cold stubbies.”
“LOHAN”? Does she fly to space in Herbie the Love Bug??
(Of all the places I could have gone with that joke…)
Herbie, no. Meth, yes.
The people who shovel my walk are here quite early this morning.
Funny, there are disheveled people on my walk this early morning.
While reading about this tragic plane crash that killed four people, I surprised they didn’t say anything about loading. Even though a PA-28 has four seats, it is really meant to carry three average sized adults or two average sized adults and two children, max.
So sad! I almost became a Cowgirl in 1989.
I heard about that on the radio this morning. Those small aircraft go down a lot more frequently than the big ones. It’s terribly sad for everyone involved :(.
Lots of depressing headlines today – – this article has some chuckles:
How can you go wrong with a hockey player reviewing Twilight?
Can’t wait to read this!
I don’t get it
It went over my head as well, not that that is hard to do.
Its Friday….Friday…you know? Gotta get down on Friday?
That’s pretty damn hilarious – – if you’ve ever suffered through at least some of the Rebecca Black video.
Evil, Inc. got a bit more evil today . . . I can’t say much, but will say that an executive I really respect has been pushed out.
That sucks and seems to be a common trend.
A frew freebies on the appstore today:
Burn the Rope Worlds is a diamon in the rough on that list.
Van, I saw the sad news about the Danger Mouse creator.
Wow, they were behind a lot of my fav childhood shows.
CW: All Good Things
Killing the DirecTV very soon. Will do fine with AppleTV and Netflix discs/stream. I honestly have very little time to watch anything I want anyhow.
Currently baking a meat shark I helped my little sister make. I think this makes me an enabler…
My viewing has been “nothing but ‘net” for years now, JB, and I’ve almost never missed it.
The young viewers have also never been lacking for stuff when they want to watch.
So, you should – – OMFG, a meat shark??
Seriously, a meat shark??
What’s this snow all about? I guess my yardwork won’t get done. Darn, I’ll have to stay in and watch tv.
Minus effing twenty right now.
I was going to take my grandmother shopping today but I think I’ll postpone it for a week. It’s too bloody cold to do anything except curl under a blanket
Sorry. That’s -4 in the “I’m the only place in the world that refuses to go metric” part of the world
That hurts, Bunny.
Oh, now -21. They say it’s -30 with the wind chill. Yup definitely staying home
Stay warm TEB.
And you have to remember America is full of simple farmers.
These are people of the land.
You know, morons.
Meat sharks are always serious.
We used ground meat because we’re street.
Ugh. Hubby said he “needs” a new amp so is heading out once the stores open. So the question is, do I be the good wife and go with him, or do I stay warm cuddled up in my snuggie?
Go with and order something expensive at lunch.
CW: The Rite
Anybody have the link for changing our avatars?
Well, I’m being the good wife. Off into the brrr.
For some heavy duty reading:
I survived the cold. Now it’s time to kill some dragons.
Technology is the craziest, most insane frackin bitch I have EVER had a relationship with.
That’s all I will say about that.
Back to another day of troublefreakinshooting.
I can’t go that far, but technology fails are pretty goddamn frustrating.
The part that makes me want to go to a clock tower with a deer rifle, is the way that technology will woo you and coo you and be your bestest pal EVAH for months or years … and then suddenly and randomly just decide not to work. Won’t even acknowledge it ever even knew you!
If I leave myself a note here will I get it later?
Note to self – 1:30am is too late to stay up talking on the phone.
Whew! I made it back. I was lost in Sam’s Club.
When the title PreLab1a looks like Prelabia you might want to think about using a different font.
Depends on the function of the lab.
I dropped in to share:
Now I’m going to stop staring at the screen.
bah to the hum to the bug
Forget that it’s a Huffpost article, this is damn disturbing news:
If you agree with me and Jack that this is wrong, please sign the petition against it:
(Disclaimer: If that link doesn’t work, it’s probably because I followed it from within an email and then copied and pasted)
Shout out too Essbee, you’ve got mail!
Got it, thanks!! wOOt!!
It’s the jumper isn’t it?
Ummm, I’m not sure if I should be turned on or disgusted
This reminds me that I haven’t made any green chili pork tacos in a while… hmmm I should do that.
need to stop the clicking
This is where I chime in and add how absolutely INSANE it is that we have been so focused on “Deficit Cutting” while our economy is in a shambles. We took a disaster and figured out how to turn it into a catastrophe.
Think about it … do you really worry about cost cutting when your on a sinking ship? Really?
In the midst of an historic recession that produces a major spike in unemployment, how do you really justify laying off ANOTHER 1.3 million state and federal employees as some way to fix the economy?
There is no justification. Choosing this time to address the completely separate issue of national debt is 100% pure politics.
All this “Super committee” crap is just that. Not ONE thing they are fighting about doing creates ANY jobs. In fact, some of the things they are considering (including doing nothing) will actually create MORE unemployment. Which reduces revenue … which increases the deficit!
It’s all smoke and mirrors to distract from the real problem of creating jobs/fixing the economy and it is working like a charm.
Even the mighty get rejected at the beginning:
Thoughts on poetry that doesn’t rhyme?
Looks like it was fairly quiet around the Pan this weekend.
Just got back from a State Parks sponsored “Family Camping Weekend”. The kids (and the wife and I) had a great time. Definitely think we’ll be doing more.
I made the kids and I “unplug” while we were at camp, which included no Nintendo DS for the kids while we were at camp. After I managed going through the shakes and crying in the corner in a fetal position for a while, I cleaned up and did OK 🙂
Slaughterhouse 5 would make great Palooza fare.
Van, I think the poetry world is pretty deadset against rhyming verse. Those are generally considered song lyrics nowadays.
Ed, that sounds like a great weekend!
It’s also a rather good example of a film adaption that is very faithful to the book it’s based on.
Yes, Slaughterhouse 5 is one of the best film adaptations I can think of, even if it is a bit heavy on the 70s. Miss Tessmacher’s scenes were pretty memorable too. cough.
Jack: I haven’t read Slaughterhouse 5 yet, but I would like to, and I agree with you.
Van: I know nothing about the poetry world nowadays, but I can appreciate a good poem whether it rhymes or not.
Ed: I saw the pictures. Looks like you had a great weekend!
I never read Slaughterhouse 1 or 2 so I figured I had missed too much to really understand 5.
Where’d I leave my coat?
And so begins the short week. Survival appears likely.
I slept in today. It was wonderful.
I don’t think Van loves me anymore. He’s not answering my e-mails 🙁 :silly:
Apologies TEB, I’m trying to sort something’s out at work before I reply to your email.
No real hurries Van. I’m just being a brat. :sideways:
So today’s spam mail said “rock her hard on your fist date” Two things wrong with this.
first – Being a hetrosexual female, I don’t want to “rock HER hard”
Second – from the female point of veiw, I won’t “rock” at all on the first date. What kind of people is this aimed at?
On a geeky side note, when hubby and I went on our first date, we went to this little chocolate bar for coffee, then he taught me to play Magic the Gathering for a couple of hours. It was sweet :heart:
I may shed a tear after reading that.
Just make sure that’s all you shed, nakey Nelly.
“rock her hard on your fist date”
Now THAT’S a Freudian slut if I’ve ever seen one.
I did what you see there
That was the best part … expecting the “fist date” to be one of the 2 problems she had with that spam and then having her not include it.
Fist of the P0rn Star?
I mean North Star.
No I mean P0rn Star.
Are the Scorpions writing spam emails now??
“Rhythm her love!”

demoncat_4 3 days ago:
if nothing else given the penn state scandal the film makers may wind up having to save the infamous shower scene as an extra for the dvd. and thankfuly even hollywood has enough taste to not even hire Jerry. espicially with No doubt Orson being involved with the film.
Please tell me he’s talking about Enders Game.
Oh indeed he is.
I haven’t (and won’t) read the books. I think I’ve said enough about my feelings toward OSC. Still, LOL!
Love is (finally) a wonderful Trek/Wars mashup
Let he who is without Schenn cast the first puck.
I’ve played ditto and Bunny in the past 2 matchups with absolutely no trash talk. I’m pretty sure I have no chance against the Mighty Jack Burtons, in this go-round. Here’s hoping Lo Pan’s lineup all get sent back to the minors.
Oh your’e taking the “I’m not worthy” approach, eh?
Well played, Johhny Slapshot. Well well played.
I really think my goal in the hockey pool is to make everybody else look good.
Maybe tomorrow I’ll do some shuffling.
You need more goons. This aint your normal league where you need talent…
Plus youre only a game out of playoff spot. Knees up, Mother Brown
The Wayne and Garth hockey strategy usually works, except when a car drives down the street.
Of course, thats Jimmy Wayne and Garth Brooks.
Some people, specifically non-deadpan people, are quite insistent that the world revolves around them and by gosh, are they wrong! And they are stupid and crabby and should probably eat a big cup of shut the :ftb: up before I bitch slap them into an episode of Bosom Buddies.
Who should we beat up?
Down with stupid people!
And I’m posting again to update my number.
I was so annoyed with the stupid person, I neglected the most important part of my post.
Yeti: Oh, would you look at that? We’re out of snowcones. Let me… just go outside and make some more.
As The Energizer Bunny says, “that’d be a fist”
Some movies to look forward to in 2012:
Perfectly timed typo:
03. The Hunger Games (March 23, 2012)
I’m only about a third of the way into the fist novel of Suzanne Collins’ series, but I’m enjoying it so far
Good thing shes cute.
Great story on a serious issue:
John Wyndham’s Chocky adapted by the BBC in 1967:
Is it chock full of fun?
Stiff upper lips and to toodle pips.
I knew you were a whore. Now I know.
Only insult what you can afford.
Work sucked extra this evening. Wound up outside in freezing, pouring rain for a couple of hours.
Good thing I have thoughts of Cj to warm me back up.
He’s a damn hottie!
Oh bring back Chris Neil to me to me
Oh bring back Chris Neil to meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Have you kids been behaving yourselves?
Well cut it out!
Yay 3 day work week!
What are the Deadpanties Turkey-day plans?
Trying to find out what ever happened to Jeremy from Seattle
Are you doing Thanksgiving at your new place, Jeremy? If so, that’s where I’ll be!
Actually, we’re going to hit 2 locations, one of which features the world’s finest smoked turkey.
When I was a kid, Thanksgiving used to be about hanging out with all of my psycho relatives on my mom’s side of the family. After I got married it was about hanging out with all the psychos on my wife’s side of the family. Nowadays, Turkey Day is celebrated with just my wife and kids. 🙂
Teresa is going to try out a new turkey receipe that involves brining the turkey in a salt/honey/water mixture. I’m going to bake pies.
My thanksgiving was last month. It was just hubby and I so I roasted a small chicken instead of a turkey
As evil purveyors of religious oppression, there is no thanksgiving on this side of the pond.
Actually if QI is to be believed, the pilgrims wanted to take their own brand of religious oppression overseas..
I fully believe that
I’ve been hearing good things about QI, but it’s not available anywhere in the US.
The wind is heavy today. We’re suppose to g
Have gusts around 100 kmh (approx 60 mph). After being out there, I believe it
What not to do at work #34:
Go to Google Images and type in “Balloon knot”
“Landing strip” is much safer.
Oh let me try thaWHHHHAAAA??????
..and it’s goodbye to Anne McCaffrey:
She was 85? Wow.
I never read her books, but I know some who loved them, including Mennenga. Was she the first contemporary Fantasy author to go with the concept of Dragon Riders?
It is a shame.
While I drifted away from reading her books, I have many fond memories of reading her stuff when I was younger.
I’ve read a little of her stuff. I’m slightly shocked and sad to see her go.
“F hole” is ironically pretty tame.
How about “F Troop”?
Like Goof Troop, but minus the Goo.
Goddammit Rebecca. Goddammit.
Just like that
..why did I click that link, and more importantly why did I keep listening?
O I sat thru the whole 3:40. Im still humming it. Catchy whore.
Whatever it is, I must confess I’m just not man enough to click the link.
Be the man.
Damn you, elder god!
Ugh. Luke just isnt very Schennsational
He’s gotten better.
Holy Crap! The third Acacia book is out?
Yeah! I’m reading it now – pretty ok.
Sneak Peak at Game of Thrones season 2
A long drive through rain and holiday traffic has sees me visiting with relatives. Thursday I will drive another 6 hours (?) to the St. Louis area for more of the visiting.
I’m tired but well fed.
I made a green bean casserole and a butternut squash casserole tonight. I’m going to take those, a package of King’s Hawaiian Roles, and a package of croissants to my parents’ house for Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. It looks like it’s going to be just my parents, me, my sister, and her boyfriend.
I worked hard tonight, and I am tired. Good night, squash.
We’re off to visit my folks — 😉
Have great time!!!!
Safe turkey travels fellow Americans and Canadians living in the USA. 😉
I made some chocolate chip pumpkin bread last weekend as a precurser to Thanksgiving.
Grandma is in town. Alert – – Grandma is in town.
Safe travels and happy gluttony, Americans. I’m always here, so don’t be shy on the DP conversation, even during the holidays.
I’ll be back with a fun link, before the morning is out.
Ah, a breakfast of “fun link sausage” perhaps?
Sausage, no spam.
George Carlin said it best. “Nobody ever gets laid on Thanksgiving.”
Proper quote “You never seem to get laid on Thanksgiving. I think it’s because all the coats are on the bed.”
Wait, Avril Lavigne is covering “Wish You Were Here”?? We might need to declare war on Canada to make this stop.
C’mon Jack. That’s a sick joke to make, even for you. Cause I know youre just joking. Arent you. Arent you?
I think that was in retaliation for us letting The Jonas Brothers to “Master of Puppets.”
YOu fucking gave me a heart attack you asshole!!!! 😉
HA upon HAAAA!!!!
A different kind of heart attack:
What????? Why???? Why?????
I think I stick to checking time on my cell phone.
Just a little hint for my Deadpan Secret Santa buddy.
(Fact: I haven’t worn a watch since 2005.)
I can’t bring myself to view the carnage but here is a link to the atrocity
It’s a bitdepressing discoverering a forgotten dedicated chess computer that can still crush you at chess.
Whats more depressing is realizing it can also crush you with its giant robot hands.
Van, I discovered the Defender game for my phone. Have you mentioned that one before? Holy crap, is it addictive.
I do wish they hadn’t stolen the name from a classic game/classic Manowar song, though.
Speaking of Manowar…. could someone (maybe Jack of Rhett) tell me if The Agonist is worth listening to? Every time I try and watch one of their videos my pant get tight and I just pass out.
ZP lays into the two latest shooter games:
It looks like hubby and I will be driving up to Edmonton next year
I got a couple Agonist songs on my player.
May I also suggest:
Serpent & Seraph
You may suggest, sir.
I probably shouldn’t admit that I’d never heard of The Agonist. Song titles like “Thank You, Pain” and “Business Suits and Combat Boots” aren’t very promising, but I’ll reserve judgment.
One judgement for Mr. Mangan. Got it, consider it reserved.
Had a nice lunch with a friend. Now need to walk it off. Good thing the weather has turned nice.
My sushi is spicy.
Is this some kind of euphemism?
previous 3 reply to this have been typed and then quickly erased.
Perhaps this one should have been as well.
Now I’m dying to know what they were.
I was going to type “And I’ve got jalapenos on my hot dog.” but thought better of it. Oh wait.
We could totally go the –
“My sushi brings all the boys to the yard, And their like It’s spicier than yours …”
Mr. Mullet arrested for hair cutting attacks.
Jaromir Jagr, Richard Marx, and Billy Ray Cyrus have been sought for questioning.
Remember, remember the days of Movember.
My hubby grew a bear this month. It has nothing to do with movember though. Every year when winter starts growling he decides he needs face fur. He’ll shave again inthe new year
I really did mean beard not bear but, in the context of the post, I think it work either way
A koala bear would make for an adorable facial adornment.
While a “bear cub” would be a questionable choice.
I’m currently reading the tome Read Me by Neal Stephenson who needs a 1,000 + page book? Wouldn’t it be better to make two 500 page books like Connie Willis did with Blackout/all Clear? Or better yet, a trilogy of three to four hundred pages. I hear trilogies are all the rage with the kids right now.
Too much distortion do you think?
Currently visiting some “pensioner” relatives.
Even with a turtle neck sweater, sweatshirt and jacket … I had to finally go to my room and hide under all the blankets to try and stay warm. They apparently have only so much in their budget for “heat”.
A bit of a perspective adjuster.
Also, I am wondering if all couples reach an age where they begin fighting over completely unimportant details to unimportant stories they attempt to tell in each other’s presence.
Him – “Oh, we know some people who have a car like that, Bob and Sue Johnson”
Her – “No it was Jim and Sally White who had that car. Bob and Sue have that truck.”
Him – “No, Jim’s wife is actually Anne and they had the car because their aunt was in that wreck”.
and on and on and on … and no one else in the room knows ANY of these people so it doesn’t matter WHAT the characters names are or really even what they drive!
I’ve actually seen this from my parents and I was thinking it was just them but now I am wondering if it is the fate awaiting ALL couples who reach “a certain age” together.
I now think I know exactly what Roger Daltrey was singing about.
btw – actually having a swell time. Just wanted to share my observation on those two items.
Once more with details…
Saw the new Muppet Movie tonight and it was great. 😀 Has alot of the feel of the early muppet movies. And loads of cameos, because it’s a muppet movie. Plus pop culture references and call backs to the earlier movies.
I :heart: muppets !
So now I can’t read Deadpan for fear of Muppet talk. grrrr
I’ll keep it spoiler free. Muppets are too good to be spoiled.
Jack MAAAAngan…. youve really got your team tooogetha….
BTW: finished EP 218. Wow! I love me some good music talk. Tho I realize there’s about 100000 bands you didnt have time to speak of, your omission of Motörhead confounded me. Pioneers, a famous front man (ala Black Sabbath), seminal albums leading to shit before a reawakening. 1916 by itself deserves a show (for terrific and for terrible). But that’s another conversation for another time.
I see that Secret Santa hint, Jack.
The cooking here is about to commence in earnest!
