There was a short poem about trees but alas I’ve forgotten the words.
It appears Jack hadn’t forgotten though.
I keep hearing there’s a forest around here somewhere, but I just can’t see it.
Hmm, interesting. Letter that Philip K. Dick wrote shortly before the release of Blade Runner –
Yeah, I still can’t forgive Ridley Scott.
I’m so so looking forward to this Palooza 🙂
Madder than a bag of hammers:
Month end *sigh*
Month end *ahhhhh!*
Capitals – 1, Rangers – 1
DAMN YOU SHARKTIPUS!!!!!
Best movie ever. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1619880/
For the Facebook deprived, I had a missed call on my cell last night from a number I didn’t know: 253-382-9904.
Looked it up today. Appears they’ve been busy judging from all the comments I found. It appears to be a scam outfit trying to phish for credit card numbers with the promise of a free trip. So don’t answer if you get called.
Hey gang, my Colorado trip is locked in for June 15-25, so any Mmmmmmmmini-Mmmmmmmmmmeetup plans may commence.
The Bees with get with the Pans and we’ll plan something, JB.
This just in… the podcaster known as Jack Mangan is actually Syd Barrett – a founding member of Pink Floyd thought to have died in 2006.
More to follow as this story develops…
You know… that is pretty close to some of my hair days looks.
Maybe now I should do a full body shave? OK, maybe not…
you’re becoming a swimmer?
Full body Brazlian FTW
Jack is better looking.
*sigh* Month end is still happening. I actually expect to be working later than I normally would so I can get stuff done before I leave on Thursday.
Raise your hand if you don’t want to be at work today
Raises both hands and jumps up and down
*reaches over and tickles her middle while she has her hands raised*
I still have a huge pile of freelance work from Fiverr to get through before I leave, preferably today. Meh.
On the bright side, I’m also going clothes shopping, having lunch, and getting my hair cut with my mom today. :happy:
And on yet another note, happy First of May! I have my celebratory scone and large house blend, like every year.
Random fun fact: Apparently, the Android OS on my phone didn’t know what a “scone” was until just now. It wasn’t in the autocorrect dictionary until I put it there. When I first typed it, it autocorrected to “evoke.” o_0
I guess you could say that post “scpwned” your droid.
There, two reconciliations down, two more to go.
Amazing how 12 inches of plastic can alleviate handluggage worries.
ummmm. Censoring what “12 inches of plastic…” did to my mind, care to elaborate?
Bunny beat me to it.
Wait, what? Now I’m beating 12 inches of plastic?
Van quick, tell us what you really meant before this topic degrades any further 😉
Rather mundane I’m afraid, just got a ruler out to measure my backpack.
hmmmm, do I want to go there?… *shrug* sure, why not”
“measure my backpack” is that what the kids are calling it nowadays?
There is not enough soap in the world to cleanup that comment.
Lend me your coat?
Awww *hugs Vanamonde*
(just a few more days and I’ll be able to do that for realzies! :cheerful: )
I’ve finished my third reconciliation. The last one is kicking my butt, though.
I made it through my last reconciliation.
Now…forecasting, rolling over to May, print out 500 pages of reports…
*sigh* Yeah, I’ve got a ways to go before month end is over
7Th Guest and 7Th Guest Infection go free on the app store:
Oh and if you use a Mac, 7Th Guest is also free on the Mac app store.
Some atrocious acting in that game.
As stated on Facebook – I know the designer of 7th Guest. Graeme Devine. Nice guy… from Virgin Games, spun off to Trilobyte… etc etc.. all happened while I was doing tech support at Virgin.
“I was doing tech support at Virgin.”
First glance that read as
“I was doing tech support on a Virgin.”
I love it when someone thinks I made a mistake but, when looking over it, the booboo was actually theirs, not mine. :happy:
Just out of curiosity Van, do you actually have to leave on Wednesday, your time, to arrive in Arizona at 5pm their time?
I meant 5pm Thursday their time.
Since I’m ahead timezone wise, I leave and arrive on Thursday.
On the return I leave on Monday and come back Tuesday.
Hopefully you’ll be able to get some sleep on the plane. I know some people who just can’t, no matter how long the trip.
Why don’t you use that wibbledy wobbledy, timey wimey stuff you guys have over there.
Alas the time machine broke down when the elastic band snapped.
How’s that wibbledy wobbledy, timey wimey stuff workin out for ya?
Jack, am I a Wookie because of my leg-shaving in Winter habits?
EssBee, it was more for your mad skillz with the Wookie bowcaster.
Is that like a Bowflex?
Sorry, here’s my card.
It can stop raining now
But the ark hasn’t even started to float yet.
Trust me, the ark has set sail a while ago.

Okay – went from happy to worried. Nephew has been sent to children’s hospital for low pulse ox. Sudden onset bronchial problems. He’s 11 1/4 months.
Fucking suck :(. SO sorry
🙁 I hope everything turns out OK.
CW: Mars Attacks
Not sure why I didn’t like this when I saw it 10 years ago. Seems like a great movie now.
Sounds like a Live Palooza nomination candidate.
I remember that it really got panned but last time I saw a bit of it on TV it seemed delightfully quirky.
Hey, I was in that movie. LOL
I thought it was an awesome B-movie.
Did well overseas including the UK.
I still have the VHS of the movie.
I hate to be the group grump, but I thought that was the beginning of the end for Tim Burton.
Not Mars Attacks – – his choice to cast Rhett in the movie.
Ack! Ack! Ack!
Burning all the Deadpan episodes I’ve gotten behind on to a data CD right now. Will start listening to them in my car during all the commuting I have to do tomorrow.
There may be some “space-time continuum” problems with that. Be careful.
Cynful — hang in there! Pediatric respiratory problems are common and very treatable. I know its hard to sit & wait and that its no fun for the lil’ guy. But I bet once he gets a breathing treatment or two, some fluids and some steroids in him, he will perk right up. 🙂
Your family is in my thoughts.
*hugs* and thought with you Cynful
…..aaaand the nerves have kicked in with a vengeance.
You are got this, Van!!!
No, I’m not going to correct that.
Did I say about wobbling collies, Van?
Impressive mainly for Nick Hornby’s presence. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6G5JaicYuVU
Interesting also that he wrote all of the lyrics for the new Ben Folds album.
Impressive mainly for Nick Hornby’s presence.
On the first read I got that as Impressive for Bruce Hornsby’s presence. Boy was I surprised to see that bald English guy :blush:
Now you’ve done it … you’ve made ma a fan of a band I’ve never heard of.
This is amusing as well.
Expecting another long day of work today. Then tomorrow, it’s hugs all round! :biggrin:
Our older cat, Jenny, has lost her battle with cancer. I have a hospice vet coming in a few hours this morning to help her out with that. We’re very sad and will miss her, but also know that it’s absolutely time.
*hugs* Losing a pet is like losing a child you’ve had for 15 years.
*hugs* EssBee. It is tough when we loose our furry friends.
Sorry to hear that EssBee.
*more hugs* so sorry EssBee.
Love and Hugs to you both.
Just came back from breakfast with Boo.
In a couple of hours I’m sneaking out to do a few errands I don’t have time for.
Bloody BA won’t let me print my boarding pass for the Phoenix flight, means that not only will I have a limited time to get to the plane but I will have to piss around printing a pass at Heathrow.
I must be clam, I must be clalm, I must be calm…
They won’t send an electronic boarding pass to your email? I do that flying from here, much nicer than paper.
Nope, I’ve been selected for a security check at Heathrow.
Hopefully I’ll still have time to catch the Phoenix flight.
You lucky, lucky man
My sister is laughing, she thinks they are going to be sorely disappointed to find I only have hand luggage.
Can you go early enough that you still have time to get your flight (ie 3 hours early instead of 2)? Even if you have extra time, you can always read before you actually have to board
Too late to change now, so keeping fingers firmly crossed.
I got the pre-flight TSA hand-in-the-crotch last summer; intimate as the experience was, it really didn’t take too long. I’m sure yours will go quickly and smoothly, Van.
Third time was the charm (spelling wise at least).
Thanks for the well-wishes, friends. Jenny is 20 years old and we got to enjoy her company for a long time.
Van, if it makes you feel any better, we’re complete introverts here too and pretty nervous about the mmmeetup. My feeling is that it’s gonna be fine! Also, for me and Sly B, we just set up a nerve-wracking breakfast with my estranged brother for Saturday morning, and that is much more stress-inducing than hanging out with you beautiful people!
When ever I get full of nerves, or angry, or anything other than my chipper self, my daughter will start saying to me “calm blue ocean, calm blue ocean”. Although, usually that just pisses me off so maybe forget I brought it up.
My sympathies and hugs too, Ess & Sly B. I am glad you gave her such a long life full of love and happiness.
hugs to EssBee. Losing our furry ones sucks.
Big Hug to you & your family
Sent you an e-mail that may be lost under the stack.
Venus to have a once-in-a-lifetime transit across the Sun in June
I’m hoping my cardboard gadget I bought for the 2004 will still work so I can observe it.
Hunger Games is Friday morning at 9:20am if anyone wants to join us: http://x.co/jt5B is the location.
No movies for this Bunny. If I go this weekend I won’t be able to go next and hubby will be sad as he wants to see Avengers. 🙁
Too bad we get in Friday afternoon.
Hey! We do too!
Have fun this weekend everyone! So jealous, wish I was going. Maybe next year. Looking forward to possible Skype this weekend to see all your happy faces.
Good news/bad news on the nephew. It isn’t RSV, but they haven’t been able to rule out pneumonia yet. They want to keep him a little while longer as they had to keep him on O2 overnight.
CP: If I Had A Boat — James Vincent McMorrow
Thanks for the thoughts and hugs again, y’all. It is done, and was (all things considered) a very peaceful and positive experience.
John had a friend who son was given an Elmo doll when he was born. For the first six months of the kid’s life, any time the father saw that doll, he would pick it up, shake it and say, “Elmo is the Antichrist”. It was amusing.
ZP takes a look at Fez and I Am Alive:

Oh you poor dear, lets have a look at that shall we?
Are you playing doctor again?
I never stop. (wakka woo)
Are playas still wearing ball caps with the price tag still hanging off?
I was never a playa’ so I can’t say.
Just call him Minnie Pearl. That’ll stop it 🙂
Just you and me, punk rock girl.
Do you like fudge vanilla swirl?
No man, it’s stolen.
Just tried my Dad’s baseball cap.
I have a far larger head that my Dad did.
I apologise for the woolly hat in advance.
Packing done, think I had better get an early night..
I shall see some of you tomorrow.
… and some of us will see YOU!
Safe journey to you.
If you do I want a refund from that kid with the funny birthmark.
Looking forward to meeting you, Van! Safe and happy travels.
Safe Travels, Vanamonde!
BBC is rerunning old interviews that Parkinson did with various media stars.
Richard Burton is being interviewed, he’s actually smoking on set.
I don’t feel the urge to smoke a ciggie.
Take that Mr Spielberg.
I now pronounce you Van and wife…
You MAY kiss the bride. If you know what’s good for ya.
Bride of Vaninstein
Hey all — sorry but this question is directed towards the MMMmmmeetup folks, specifically CJ & Ralph.
I’d like to bring one or two food items on Sat. One of them is my Maui Chicken, which requires using a grill and then a Side dish/Dessert called Taffy Apple Salad. Im putting feelers out right now to see how it will be received…
Thoughts please so I can plan between work sched and meetup scheds.
And most importantly — the access to a grill
… access to a girl?
Access to this grill?
Ralph will be grilling also, so it should be no problem. We are making carne asada, tortillas, and beans – unless something changes.
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly, CJ.
Oh and, as always… there will be cake.
IT’S A LIE
End of 2nd Period: Capitals – 1; Rangers – 1
That song should spend 31 seconds in the penalty box.
So, will there be a place at CJ’s for everyone to check their guns and double entendres at the door. I seem to have a weakness for loaded words and big mikes in my face.
Who is this “big mike” and does he play favorites?
I’ve heard Mike isn’t really that big…
I have no personal experience.
Really, I don’t. *cough*
The future looks…..interesting:
Wow, I might actually start reading Stephen King again.
Best thing he’s written since Salem’s Lot.
My respect for this guy just suddenly re-appeared … and at the top of the charts at that!
Here is another political thought that broadsided me this week as I opened yet another request for campaign donations.
If you want me to vote/support you, why don’t you present me with a realistic/detailed plan for how you will actually make my life better.
If your plans for my future are so lame/in-effective that you have to try and dress them up by telling me how apocalyptic the other guy’s plans are … then maybe you should work on a better plan. One that can stand on it’s own merits rather then the failed merits of their opponents.
That’s what these guys are doing. Rather then making themselves better, they are painting nightmare pictures and standing next to them to try and look appealing.
/end political commentary
You know, I think I’m ready to believe that this mMMMeetup thing is really going to happen 🙂
Here I am, just relaxing before hubby tales me to the airport
Which might help to fuel Ed’s mmmmmeetup theory 😉
Dammit, Lo Pan and your whoremonger Rangers.
I believe Happy Birthday is in order for Vanamonde, our world-traveler!
It’s Van’s birthday? Big bdayhugs Van!!!!
I’m at the airport. My plane doesnt leave for another three hours but I had hubby drop me off on his way to work
At Heathrow, slight hiccup, but in the queue for the Phoenix flight.
The customs guy asked why were they picking on me..
This 747 is HOT, how nice of British Airways to acclimatise me for Phoenix.
Well time to go radio silent, later Pan.
Safe travels ALL!
Awww, I missed saying good bye to Van. Oh well, *shrug*. In a few hours I’ll be able to say “hello!”
Well then, if Van is going to actually board a plane then I guess maybe it’s time I should actually pack.
I’ve gotten the carry-on bag out. Does that count?
I am beside myself with anticipation to meet you guys!
Sly B and I are leaving now – see y’all tomorrow!
See ya soon!
See you tomorrow, Ess
Went through security. Now just waiting to board. Getting lots of reading in
See y’all tomorrow! 🙂
Indeed! Save travels to all the DP travelers.
Some shirts have been laid next to the suitcase.
Time for a break.
No need to push yourself.
I think Ralph started packing something this morning, but he kept saying things about how he needed to do laundry first. It’s nice when a man washes his clothes before he wears them around me. I think I’ll keep him.
What should I do tonight?
Alone on my birthday and I can’t decide if I should download some action adventure movie I haven’t seen (that is pretty much all of them) or just pull out the old James Bond DVDs and bask in the vacuous “bombs & babes” manliness of it.
It’s your birthday? Nobody told me. Happy birtay, J0e. *big hug*
Happy birthday, JJ.
Yes Happy Happy. Blow it up!
Well Deadpan, I’m going dark too. See some of you in a few hours
A Bunny Darkly ?
What would Dick do?
Ralph is en route to his flight out as well.
So you’re leaving the asylum to us that can’t go? Oh no!
Today I shall be traveling disguised as a normal person. I apologize for any confusion this may cause.
A super-sexy normal person, I imagine.
Bunny’s flight shows delayed by about 30 minutes. Wonder how much time they’ll make up in flight.
I’m still leaving work early to retrieve her. I love that Bunny!
Boo on delays…
So it’s happy birthday to both J0e *and* Van?! This is a momentous day around Deadpanland.
Happy/safe travels to everyone!
Aww Happy Birthday, jJ!
Bunny’s flight has gained momentum. She is only running 20 minutes delayed now.
Happy birthday, JustajOE!!
And Van too!! Have a good one. 🙂
Just a note on my availability. Tonight I’ll be caught up in domestic chores and Friday night I’m doing a charity bowling event with Teresa. So it looks like I won’t be seeing anyone until Saturday afternoon. I noticed that Saturday is also Free Comic Day and many shops have events planned if anyone is looking for stuff to do.
If a safari were to be scheduled to a local comic shop I suspect I could be interested in joining in.
Leisurely 2 hour lunch with friends is complete (Chinese Buffet).
Now back to packing.
… but first, I should fix a little drinkie.
After all it IS my birthday.
Jack, I don’t know what you’ve posted. I can’t seem to access it
BTW – my movei choice for this evening is “Zombie Land”
I never got to see it and my lunch friends said it was worth the download.
So be it.
Maybe, I’ll also rent “The Hang Over”(never saw it) as a reminder what not to do before traveling tomorrow.
Good choice, I’ve seen “Zombie Land” a couple of times on broadcast television, so I’ve never seen it in the original Klingon. Fun movie.
Rule #67: Don’t mistake someone being Deadpan for being a Zombie.
CP: Stuff Your Ballot Box – Two Man Gentlemen Band
Trust me LoPan, you’ll like it.
Supermoon, Cinco de Mayo, *and* Deadpan Mmmmmmmeetup this weekend!
Is this a sign of the apocalypse? I sure hope not! 🙂
Reading all these posts about people traveling and preparing to travel is making me really excited for this MMMMMeetup. :happy: This is the biggest group we’ve ever had for one of these!
Safe travels to all who have already started traveling! I’ll see you late Friday night.
Happy birthday, J0e and Van!
I’m bringing the maximum amount of *hugs* the TSA will allow me to carry on the plane. 🙂
CD: Steaming my pants.
This is not nearly as much fun as it seems like it ought to be.
Happy birthday! Justajoe and Vanamonde!6
Chilling with my goddess
Soon, soon I’ll be there.
Boarding plane leaving denver for Phoenix. I’ll be waving to Essbee, Slyness, and Lopan.
According to the airport, Van’s flight is six minutes late
He didn’t have enough whiskey.
If you haven’t seen it already, search for “zerg rush” on Google.
At the airport waiting for Van and Ralph
At the baggage claim, waiting to claim Van and Ralph
If you see this Van, we’re right at the bottom of the escalator by baggage claim
E are near carousel 1
This is almost like that scene out of Aliens where they are below decks trying to find the creature.
We have Ralph. Van’s plane is here but no sign of Van yet
VAN! Where are you?
We made it to Santa Fe and are stopping for the night!
Happy Bday JJ!!
Wow, there are a lot of people coming off this escalator
Vans plane landed an hour ago yet still no Van. Should we be worried?
Still no Vanamonde
I was going to check into my hotel after getting van but now I don’t think there will be time before dinner
We may be late for dinner, Jack. Still no sigh of Vanamonde
We found him!
I guess you could say you were Van Hailing.
What she said!
Happy Bday to the JJ and the Van. Both sexy. Both outstanding.
Safe travels to all yall’s! Wish I could join. Ill be there in drunken spirit.
I’ll raise spirits to be drunk to your drunken spirit!
Spirit me away???
Calgon, take me away!
Wha who huh? How can we have a MMMeeetup without an elder god to watch over us? Do I have to hijack my plane and detour it through Colorado?
If only, my sweet Texas man-child
We just went here for dinner after seeing the place on that insipid Guy Fietti’s show. WONDERFUL.
WANT AND WISH!!!
Well, it is a day of new learnings – Happy Birthday to Deadpan twins Van and Justa Joe!
At my hotel. A little grumpy because they messed up my reservation. The girl said they would move me tomorrow but now I have my doubts. I just spoke to the new guy on shift and he said he can’t promise anything. I am a grumpy bunny right now
And the bedside lamp seems to be burnt out. Ditto, I blame you. You recommended this hotel 😉
There are Deadpanites here! And more on the way!
Funny dog picture, take 2: http://now.msn.com/now-plus/0503-alzner-dog-tweet.aspx
Alright, I am pretty sure I’m packed. A few hours of pretending to work this morning and then it’s off to the airport.
Now seems a good time to slink back to DP, what with everyone preoccupied with the Mmmmmmm.
I’m not! We shall overcome the Pan… bend it to our whim! Wa ha! Ha Ha! HAHQAHAHAHAHAHAHAHACOUGHCOUGH
Nomad! Your slink is always welcome.
We’re missing you on this road trip, Daddy-(L)o
Yeah Lo, why for you not here 🙁
Nomad – You have the important job of making sure we can open the podbay door when we return.
I’m listening to the dawn chorus as I type.
My ‘doh!’ moment of the trip so far, realising my phone charger that was susposed to fit US wall sockets is in fact the wrong shape.
I’m lost for words at the warm welcome I received.
..and no JJ , pitchforks and cloven hoofs were not in evidence.
Alas I failed the medical on the ‘virgin’ part.
They built this Wicker Man, just for me? *sheds tear*
Van, will your phone work on my charger? If so, you can plug it in here while we have breakfast and toddle around until Cj and Ralph comes over
On a, sort of, related note. Hubby and I were flicking through Xbox Zune the other day and we found a sequal to Wickerman, also with Christopher Lee. We haven’t watched it yet but plan to when I get home
Here it is http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0323808/
Should do TEB, I’ll bring along.
If it’s the one with Nic Cage, runaway runaway!
Nope, not the nick cage one. I found the link and posted it above
Wait, it’s me Nomad and Lo in this ship?
On another note, tacos for lunch….. mmmmmmm
Gosh, darn Calgary/work time body. I’m up, showered and dressed already
Ditto but not THE ditto
After breakfast I plan to yell at the hotel staff some more. I’ve decided I either get my suite or they have to comp me something (maybe a room night?) to appease me. Am I being too grumpy?
I may have to hide when you get really withering.
Yes, because I went all out and yelled and screamed and stomped my foot last night when they told me they gave my room to someone else :silly:
Oh look, the bank emailed me to tell me my electric/gas bill has arrived. I sooo look forward to seeing that when I get back home
Had a Skype chat with a friend this morning.
There was no detectable lag, this does happen when I’m a ‘mere’ 300 miles away.
The dryer cycle finishes and the buzzer goes off, “Eeeee.” Fray perks up her ears, smiles, and says, “Geeee!”
I shut the buzzer off on my dryer. I find it annoying
Not the point of Nomad’s post…
That’s awesome 🙂
Jack said he and van would be here somewhere between 8:15 and 8:30. The question is, should I head downstairs now or assume jack is on his normal schedule and head downstairs closer to 8:45?
I’m downstairs and waiting.
Van, if you see this, we might go next door for breakfast. The one here is more continental and I know you need real food
Spoke to the hotel manager. She seemed more resonable. No yelling needed. After lunch she’s moving me to a suite or else she will give me some other compensation. No yelling needed
And here I was hoping to find out what it was like when a Bunny yelled.
Trust me, it’s not pretty
Us Canadians may be known for politeness. The t Ruth is, we keep our anger bottled up so when it does come out, you better hide 😉
It’s 8:30. No sign of Jack. :shocked:
They say La Niña official ended yesterday.
I guess I’ll finally have to take down the decorations.
Some sort of police task force just showed up. One’s even carrying a shield. Should I be worried?
That’s just how Arizona greets visitors.
They went into the hotel offices. Nobody else seems bothered so I guess I won’t be either *shrug*
… aaand I’m off to the airport.
See some of you in a few hours!
Well Night #1 of the ’12 DP MMMeeetup was a fantastical success, dare I say.
So awesome to meet Van, Energizer Bunny & Lost Ralph and to see CJ again.
F-U-N is in the air.
Safe travels Friday peeps!
Ok, I will be the one to be cheeseball and say it. . .
May the 4th Be With You.
The 4th of May, Star Wars fuckin begins today,
So call up your favorite Vader, or at least your favorite Leia.
I do great cinnamon buns, just sayin
We fucked a man with a dark Wookay!
I can do the heavy breathing (when away from the a/c).
Finishing packing and getting ready to head to the airport.
I guess I’m staying in the room I have. Jack, ask me the story of my room when you see me. It’s amazing! However, I am being comped one room night
You need to share when we get there.
I’m hoping I don’t have any problems. 🙁
Maybe the hotel is “saving” your suite for Ditto
An intense upper level Deadpan is developing over Arizona.
Keep everything in a locked and upright position.
Waiting for a shuttle to take us across the street. We decided we didn’t want to be part of a live Frogger
Getting ready to board.
On a sad note — Beastie Boys’ MCA Adam Yauch has died. Possibly by losing his battle w/ cancer. Stupid cancer.
I love me some Beastie Boys
That sucks. Much respect I have for that band even if I dislike most of their later stuff. MCA was the shit. Always will be.
Oh damn. He always had the best lines in the Beastie’s tunes. RIP MCA.
“Getting ready to board.”
Safe travels, Ed!
Van and I went on a very long walk. Not doing that again. Now relaxing in the coolness that is my room
At the airport waiting 🙂
Ready to board. See you in a few hours.
“Ready to board.”
Someone wake me when the Skype broadcast begins.
*hides in the corner*
We are all chilling at CJ’s. If other out of towers come in, feel free to contact us as dinner doesn’t start until 7
Text after you’ve checked in and relaxed. As stated, we’re at CJ’s until dinner time
Oh, dinner is 7? I thought 6:30. We’re at our “bungalow” and gonna nap for a bit. Seven is even better in that case.
I’m pretty sure we’ll be there before seven
Well there is a very good reason for the tumbleweeds this week.
Twinkle Town resort is very busy today
Checked in. Will text in a bit.
Home for a few seconds, then off to the airport to pick up J0e. Next stop: hanging again with all of you fine people!
I can’t seem to find anyone’s number other than Jack. Email me please?
I guess we’ll just meet at the bar and sort it out then.
I’m at the gate, waiting to board my plane. I’ll see you all soon! :happy:
Beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer beer
At security at Sky Harbor — sign in hand & waiting for the Ambassassador
I saw it, but Pixie recognized me and called me by name. The Ambassador has landed! :happy:
It has begun. 🙂
Banner day for Deadpan. All who couldn’t make it are missed.
Very much missed!
Up, showered an d dressed *sigh*
We’re up and worked-out, but not yet showered and not sighing!
I’m sitting upright.
Does that count?
It counts to 1.
It puts the lotion on…no wait
It will be a weekend long remembered.
Apparently it’s snowin in Calgary
Can we swap longitude?
I got to sleep in for once! 🙂
Sleep is for the weak.
Coldplay performed in LA last night. One of my friends was there. This is not his post but Coldplay did a tribute to Beastie Boys’ MCA
its very Coldplay. I dig it
Everyone keep it down!
Get off my lawn?
In theory, we’re eating soon. Good, I’m starting to get hungary
Hubby keeps sending me pictures of Calgary. It’s getting pretty white there
It’s 9:30. Just thought you’d like to know :silly:
I’m leaving the candies in my room for now. Hopefully we’ll be able to swing by and get them before heading to Cj’s
We’re off into the breach. Wish us luck!
Good luck EssBee
Yep, safe travels.
Best of luck
Brunch has been had. 🙂
Tasty tasty brunch…
Hanging out @ Jack’s
The cat is freaked.
Can someone bring 1 bag of ice?
The ice man cometh.
Yes, it was a sight seeing J0e cometh :blush:
I’ll bring brain bleach. 😉
Overheard: van should just fake it
Beer has been purchased for tonight. Now collecting musical gear and food. Then off to collect the Canadian chocolates, and then away to Cj’s we go! :happy:
Arrived, we have, at CJ’s house of fun.
Skype will start at about 5:30ish!
Jack lies. We have no idea when Skype will commence
They maybe a delay due to high protein intake.
Replace protein with beer and you’d be right!
Sssssssssh! People are eating.
I came, I consumed
*munch crunch munch *
The innuendo is flying fast an d furious here in Deadpanland
I’m shocked, shocked to hear there’s innuendo going on in this establishment.
What are you implying?
BunBun, the dryer has no switch for the buzzer. I looked up the writing schema and offered to rig up a toggle switch but my wife says she likes it.
Posting to the Deadpan, but I don’t knpw why since you are all here.
^at CJs that is.
I thought the cake was a lie
Initiating sugar coma
Today’s PBP is Avengers: Earths Mightiest Hereos
Episode one: the birth of Iron Man
We are strong, forever fight as one
Water robot of death
The fire has a face
Shield should fight giant robots, not iron man
Pepper is a grumpy broad
A tentacle monster, ooooh
Tony Stark has blue veins
I don’t see iron man being born. He just is.
Debbie says: It’s Cthulhu!
Ok, let me get this straight. All of the avengers can’t fight this monster, only iron man can. Useless avengers
Check out the beard on Nick Fury
That must have hurt
Warning! Incoming projectils
If iron man gets a dent, is there a body shop he can go to?
You’ve got to be kidding me!
Smoke in the city
His GPS is so much more polite than mine
I’m still traumatised by the crap theme tune
Egrets the marshmallows? Keys make smites via ditto
Random HUD that doesn’t mean anything
The green robot has iron man on the ropes
Stark industries. Big reveal
About bloody time the Calvary showed up
Big flying carrier!
Wait, they want him to back down?
I admit, I have no idea what’s happening
He has a laser beam heart?
Nobody arrests iron man
Look who’s coming to dinner.
Yeah broad, do the down standing thing
What the heck is a man droid?
The friend of any woman… The mandroid *breathless sigh*. Oh, man droid
Against this, you’re useless!
Tony Stark wears a Tron suit under the Iron Man suit
Avenger by day, cause villains to pray.
Tron by night, MPC’s delight.
Look at all the men in their black spandex
Wait, she wears black spandex too
Oh, isn’t he purdy
The cyborg has implants. Go figure
Let me show you my big… Blade
The red glove of death
Cool, he is an aging machine
Now we know how nick fury turned gray
Flying car fight
He had a self destructing arm. Bummer
Nick Fury with Reed Richards hair
The big house. A super villon prison
Show done. Whew
They just had to name the episode “Iron Man is Born!” because it was the first episode. Not a single word was said about Iron Man’s origins.
End of live play-by-play. Next up: Live 60 Lines.
Deadpan people never cease to amaze me. I don’t know what to say…
Thank *you*! It was a fun evening.
Correction: We did live music first. Now we’re passing out 60 Lines slips.
It was great seeing everyone. Deadpan is the way.
Time to sleep.
That was a wonderful experience, everyone. It was a pleasure to meet all that were there in person, and we missed those of you who weren’t able to make the trip!
Yes, you were all missed. Hopefully life won’t interfere so much next time.
Up, showered and dressed. I think I’ll go downstairs and see what I can rustle up for breakfast
We are starting to shuffle about ourselves. need to find a bucket of water to go roust Mr. Mangan.
CE: bagel with cream cheese. Yum
LostRalph and I are CE: Homemade Huevos Rancheros – made of party leftover goodness.
(Actually Ralph ate his already… I’m just slower)
Thank you, everyone for coming over and making my home a place filled with mirth, love, and laughter.
It warms my heart to have such wonderful, smart, funny, and generous friends.
Each of you is amazing!
Thank you so much for filling my house with your wonderful spirits!
I promise that all of the “spirits” left behind will be imbibed with much joy! 😉
We had a great time! Thank you!
It was great to meet everyone finally. and I hope I wasn’t too much of a bore about beer 😉
Desert Pixie and I are hitting the road!
All the Avengers we were expecting have assembled. We already got our seats in Theater 6. Ed, Van, J0e, Pixie, ditto, T-cat, Rhettro, Rhettro’s wife and daughter, and I are here. Let’s get this party started!
And Jack, of course. Oops. :blush:
Children retrieved. Still waiting for them to notice the lack of canine.
The good coffee is good.
The Avengers = Thor has well-conditioned hair
because he uses THOREAL.
Watching Gremlins 2.
No, I don’t know why.
Cause its good!
Hulk Hogan makes that movie.
Over the canal and through the traffic to deadpan we go.
The butterbeers in Old Town Scottsdale are good. 🙂
We made it once again to Santa Fe. Hope you all had a great day today in Phoenix and everywhere else we are!
What he said
EssBee and SlyB,
Miss you already!
Visited Old Town Scottsdale. Had butterbeers. Fun time
At an Irish Pub with what remains of the Pannites. Ed From Tx just jetted off. 🙁
Its a lovely night and a nice quiet place for our last ‘(Deadpan) Family Meal together for MMMmmmeetup 2012!’
We shall definitely have to do this again. I’m now safely through security and waiting for my chariot ride home. My delay has proven to be a last hour bonus.
Fed, back at the hotel and my boarding pass printed. I see a hot bath and a warm bed in my immediate future
Thank You, wonderful Deadpan Community, for welcoming me into your funtastic group of geeky rockstars. This Pixie loved every minute of the 2012 MMMmmmeetup with all you fine folks.
I have safely transported my visiting Pannite — Amy Bowen ,back to my place. Its off to sleep we go due to a way-too-early wakeup call. Miss Bowen heads home and this Pixie heads back to work. Did I mention it will be way-too-early rising?
goodnight :hot bollix:
I shall be taking home many happy memories of this weekend, was great to see you all..
On the ground back in Texas. just need my bag then I’m ready to head home to bed.
Fun, laughs, hugs, great conversations – – all with great friends. Thanks everyone for this weekend. Thanks everyone for being Deadpan.
Save travels to all.
Just said my goodbyes to LostRalph as the SuperShuttle whisked him away into the darkness. 10 minutes till I start my morning Monday shift.
Happy to hear everyone had such a great time! :heart:
What you all said – twas great!
We’re up early and headed home. Back to the real world for all of us (though B and I are on vacation until next Monday!). Safe travels those of us still traveling!
Just about to board my plane.
These early flights are for the birds.
Just lining up to board. Goodbye, Phoenix! I had a fantastic time! 🙂
Bye, Amy! Safe travels! Glad you were able to make it 🙂
Up and at ‘me Deadpan!
Just to be clear, I love you all and shall miss you dearly when I head back jhome this afternoon
Home again home again jiggidy jig.
Now … where’s my pillow.
How you finding the weather in the Kola Peninsula ?
Those aren’t pillows!
It has been a blast! It will be sad when we head back today .
Taking the kidlets to school and venturing to the office now.
Back to the grindy grind.
Just wanted to say I had a great time this weekend. Thanks to CJ and LostRalph for hosting and Desert Pixie for getting me a ride home. It was wonderful to finally meet EssBee, Sly B and JustajOE in person. I think the number of Deadpanites I haven’t met is the minority now. 🙂
Burn! YES YOURE GONNA BURN!
And Van too, LOL. My brain thinks I already met Van in person for some reason.
Also, there is a precedent for my Thanos/Darkseid confusion.
“In the sequel, DC vs. Marvel, Thanos clashes with Darkseid, his DC counterpart, in a prolonged battle, before the fight is interrupted by Thor, Captain Marvel, Wonder Woman, Storm, Green Lantern, and the Silver Surfer.
When the clashing DC and Marvel universes merged into the Amalgam Comics Universe, Thanos merged with Darkseid to become Thanoseid.”
“Thanos merged with Darkseid ”
Having breakfast then heading it Sea Life http://www.visitsealife.com/arizona/
First nap of the day is completed.
Wondering how long I need to wait for nap #2.
Morning, Pan…er, well it’s morning for me somewhere.
Energizer Bunny needs to pick lotto numbers for me as she did correctly predict me not going in to work today 🙂
Finally arose about noon local time and then went out to lunch with my wife. Now I think I will putter around a bit.
And, for those who didn’t see this one on the Facebook, here’s a overflowing bucket of win for today:
Avengers Assemble! (on facebook)
Long live the floppy drive!
We made it home! That was a lot of driving, but very much worth it! We went from 98 degrees on Saturday to snow in Colorado Springs today.
Fun to meet you and the SlyBee!
Goodbyes have been said. Hugs have been given. Now sitting at the airport waiting for my plane
I think we may have to do this again :cheerful:
What he said! 🙂
Happy safe travels, everyone! Thank you so much for coming! You make Deadpan the way.
Oh yes I did….
btw, let me know if any of our newer folks aren’t part of the Deadpan Pool.
OMFG take me now you big sweaty man!!!!!!!!!!!
About an hour until our flight departs.
As bunny said, it is impressive how many comments we’ve made for a week where we are all away from our computers.
Ah, but when we isolate ourselves away from the rest of our regularly scheduled lives, it leaves more time for posting!
Ready to board.
Waiting for boarding to start, going to go radio silent till I get back to the UK.
My plane is late. It’s not even at the gate yet
ditto: We may all have been away from our computers, but we all had our phones with us constantly. 🙂 I’m glad I only took my phone and not my laptop. The phone was all I really needed.
I, too, took a nap this afternoon, and I’m glad I did.
Landed. Still an hour til home.
Coyotes advance!!! I have to watch a shitty movie!!!!!
Do you want to watch it with me?
Parking shuttle has finally arrived!
Finally home. Night mush.
