Who knows where the time goes?
Why do birds suddenly appear?
Lo will get jealous
Great gams, see
CW: Awake Finale
Sad to see this show go, deserved a second season.
While I never got into that one myself, my wife will certainly agree with you.
Essbee did you get the mail about 9 and 10?
Yes, sorry Van! Haven’t DL’d yet, but will this evening. Mwah!
Hmmm, there once was a woman from Venus….
Well, I never much got into this one either, but apparently Sanctuary has also been canceled by SyFy.
Scifi on a shoestring:
Lots of clouds this morning.
Today is a chocolate pudding pop and going for a walk kind of day.
Too bad work has other plans for me.
Might be a little quiet but I am reading everyone’s comments/nipples.
I initially read that as chocolate poop and was going to suggest you eat more roughage.

Closing Music Dark Side of the Moon – with special musical guest, Lejon. Recorded at the 2012 mmmmmmeetup.
While I love taking time off. The catching up is not so fun.
This is repugnant and heartbreaking:
Words fail me. Maybe we can ask for the same treatment for idiotic preachers?
I second that motion.
“We offer NO apologies in believing the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible is the inerrant Word of God.”
Aaaaaannnnnnd fuck you. Hard. Really? “Round them up…” Wonder how big his congregation really is. Then again maybe I dont wanna know…
Can I just go on record as saying that THIS man does NOT represent what I believe Jesus was trying to teach.
…er, I meant the ignorant, hate filled man and NOT Lo Pan.
Lo Pan is filled with something much darker and much, much older.
Piss and vinegar?
CP: Mani — The Appleseed Collective
If you like Tilly & The Wall, you might enjoy this one. Alt country?
I had a pet goat once named Tilly the Kid. Does that count?
That’s baaaaaaad. 😉
Oh good gruff…
Oooh, sounds like I would like!!
Renewed our symphony season tickets. We like to pretend we’re cultured.
I feel as old as Isildur’s heir.
Maybe you should try a better cream rinse?
I’ll stop using the stuff Hobbits use on their feet.
CW: House finale
No more House, no more fake US accent, yah!
Everyone: I’d like to politely request no spoilers on this board for both the House and Awake finales, please. I intend to catch up on both of those shows.
This being the last series of House was hardly a big secret Amy.
I knew that. I just posted that because I didn’t want to know the specifics of what happened in the finale. 🙂
I won’t tell you about them both being a dream Larry Hagman was having.
I do four bank recs daily. The person who was suppose to cover for me while I was away on Friday decided he’d only do one. *sigh*
Pottering around LA’s abandoned original subway:
Huge Laurie really needs to work on that UK accent. I don’t find it that authentic.
Oi, guvna! Blimey, Me an me mates are from bleedin’ Princeton, ya bollocks wankahh. Corrr.
Ah yes, reminds me how Jack pronounced ‘bairns’..
OMFG MUST HAVE!
Of course I already have all the issues, but…
Gah. I never should have started watching an anime about mahjong. Now I have to learn how to play the game. And no, I’m not talking about the solitaire version. ;P
I’ve heard you can catch cold playing Strip Mahjong.
I wish we lived close to you guys! We have a set and nobody to play with!
These are the rules I’ve been learning.
An interesting take on zombies:
They cloned it, the bastards!
Actually, the original was a cool idea and the clone looks fun as well (if you can get a load of iPhone users together).
Looks like I’ll be working late tonight and it’s not even month end. *sigh*
CP: Neverdead – Megadeath
CP: Please Don’t Stop Loving Me – Dolly Parton

It’s thundering outside.
CP: Witch Hunt – Machine Head
Taking a moment to save. The last thing I need is for the weather to have the power go out while I’m in the middle of my work.
You might say, this is a work play by play. Really exciting stuff.
CP: Prophets of War – Dream Theatre
My poor cat is freaking out. She doesn’t like thunder

Now I really am stopping.
CP: Guns, Drugs & Money – Megadeath
B&J’s Cookie Dough ice cream is great for comfort eating.
Maybe I’ll tell my husband that. I could use some ice cream.
Wait, do you need comforting Van? Why? *hugs*
Yes!!! Hubby is on his way home. Going to take a break for five minutes to start some rice.
Then more work
Then even more work. *sigh*
Ok, where was I? Oh yes:

CP: Darkness Within – Machine head
CD: San Luis Valley Brewing Valle Calliente Green Chili Lager

Vermette Their Match?: Elimination Looms for Phoenix
This Dust-in: What Can Brown Do For You?
ok Im done…
No Im not…
Doan it and Doan it and Doan it Well: Yotes Up 1-0
spoke too soon
Isn’t it nice being able to kick back and relax knowing that Jack’s all seeing eye is not gazing upon us, searching for earbuddies contributions 🙂
Pouliot of Thin Air: Yotes Up 2-1
Yeah I gotta stop this..
Does anyone here know how to disable a stolen Kindle from a laptop?
A friend has had one lifted and knows who the culprit is and hopes to get it back … but if they fail to cooperate, she wants to know if she can remotely turn the thing into a paperweight.
Snow Job(ing.com Arena): Defense Doesnt Show Up For Game 5
You Can’t Yandle the Keith!
(Keith Yandle scores)
Thats the Pyatt!
Heya! Looking to see who’s seen ‘Nobody Else But You’ the French film getting some buzz…
So buzz away, Pannites.
Hasn’t come to the arty cinema yet.
Keep me posted if you see it….
Nerve….Racking 2 minutes…..
Oh, why hello fellow hockey fan
Oh we are going to overtime on the PP ya fucksticks!
I need some Xanax. I cant hang
Ya can! I only wish my team could be in this position
This game… is fucking phantastic
Holy crap. I love this & I despise this.
love. And I envy you.
OMG Rozsival… youre better than that. Arent you?
You mean, Chinadoll Roszival…
Speak of the devil…
Holy gods! Pow!
Hurts now. Worth it for the future.
Wow. Hold your head up Yotes. Was a fuck of a year. One you deserved. You ran into a buzzsaw of a team.
I hope the Kings get annihilated in the finals. Yet I have a fantastic respect for them
I might actually have to root for this band of thugs if the Rangers advance.
Morning Pan, radiohead done in chip music:
Thanks! I have to check that out.
A game you may not have heard of:
Should we all pick Kabaddi teams and assign crappie movies for their defeated opponents to watch?
Umm no, but would like to be a fly on the wall if Lo watches this:
OMG its a souped-up version of Red Rover! Played by crazy Amazonian women! Must…keep…watching
That’s a fine turn of phrase old bean.
Im spent. And Im apparently forced to watch a crappy LA movie.
Did I mention — I hate LA
Welcome to my world.
This aint no disco…
Goodnight :Coyotes: Thanks for the best season yet.
Jesus tapdancing Mary!
I asked to go to night shift and now I’m paying for it. I love nights, but the swing sucks.
CE: a carrot muffin.
Then work. Bleh
I’m hubbyless tonight.
My glasses are dirty. Just thought you’d like to know.
Where’s the like button?
Cmon Ess, dont you know bullying is ok as long as it’s within your religious moralities? Just look how Jesus was bullied around by the Romans…
For you metal-heads:
Off to see this at the flicks:
French farce ..well it’s been a while.
Well how was it, what say?
Another movie that falls into the category of OK.
Jack’s good at guilt. 😉
Shame on all of you!
Not you, silly.
I am shamed, but I blame life. 🙂
Shame on you, life!
I feel the same way! 🙂
Propaganda of the future (or the past, depending upon where you stand on the whole long time ago issue)
I’m glad like is not like a game of light cycles.
Ohhh, I want
Finally, a use for those old missile silos just laying around.
CD: Ziggi’s black coffee
Yum. I brew pretty good coffee at home, but this is dang good. A treat for myself because I had fasting bloodwork this morning.
I hate fasting blood work. I always try to have them first thing in the morning so I’m not stupidly hungry when they are done.
Yep, I lined up with all the grey-hairs at 6:50 for a race to the lab when the doors were unlocked (I won).
I just did what every accountant does in their working career – shredded a bunch of paper. :face:
Now going to scan some documents
My work is so exciting.
I went to Ontario last month to train to take over some work for someone who was laid off. I discovered an error in the work I took over. I have a feeling, when my boss gets back from a seminar she’s at today, I’ll be backtracking this other girls work to find where the error originated and have to fix it.
I really don’t want to do that.
I’m trying to decide if I want to be evil for lunch and get some fast food.
Hubby gave me heck yesterday because I worked through lunch and didn’t eat anything between breakfast and dinner. Even though I still have about 2,500 hundred contracts to review, I guess I better eat something midday.
Morning Pan people. I’m only 3 days behind in my work now. Yay!
Damn, didn’t know IrOn Sky was playing at this cinema, damn and blast.
I’ll get your train
In the UK it’s only being released for ONE day..grrrr!
Good try Yotes, hell of a season. If the Devils make it past the Rangers, I’ll be cheering for them. If the Rangers make it through I route for the Kings, but honestly, I don’t think anyone can stop the Kings now.
Where can I purchase a Kabaddi uniform?
Kabaddi to the bone, yo
So we’re seeing Sweeny Todd live on Friday (http://www.vertigotheatre.com/main/page.php?page_id=52)
I guess a number of hubby’s coworkers found out and booked tickets to the same showing. Hubby comes home last night and asked sheepishly if it was ok that 10 or 12 teachers would be joining us. Am I really so moody and intimidating that he would think I would be upset that his coworkers think enough of him they want to join him in off hours activity? Personally, I take it as a compliment.
You will all be happy to know I’ve reached the half way mark on my stupid contract review
Well, I’ve decided. I’m making a hot dog for lunch, then will be evil for supper.
Then supper will be a devil dog.
This may be old news since it’s been around for at least a year, but I may have to play this 🙂
Back to the spreadsheets. Oh joy.
CP: Losing My Religion – Lacuna Coil
mmmm. my computer cd is not burning properly. I got a new album from ITunes and wanted to burn it to disc. It said it failed and maybe I should try calibrating the disc first. How do I do that?
Utton.Say what? I’d try using a different CD.
Failing that, right click on the drive in My Computer,click the Hardware tab, and click the “Troubleshooting”
Success! It’s amazing what a little compressed air can do.
If I can go mmmm in front of my sentence, you can say utton :cheerful:
And for those keeping track, I’m at contract 2,296
But! I can’t work late tonight. Since hubby isn’t going to be home, I’m having supper with my Boo.
Actually, I’m thinking of saying “screw it” and watching a movie in a couple of hours. If I have to work over the weekend, so be it.
J0e! I called in and followed your meme. :happy:
CP: Raisin’ Hell Again – Nashville Pussy
CP: Dusk Dismantled- Trivium
I think I’m going to stop the work PBP for now. If I’m thinking of doing a movie in an hour I should give you poor guys a break.
But first! I need a number between 1 and, oh I don’t know, let’s say 12.
The first number I see on the board is the number I’ll use.
5 it is.
When I do my play by play in about half an hour, all postings will have 5 words or less.
Oooh challenging. Good luck TEB
CP: It’s a Long Way From The Esophagus To The Ovaries — The Bunny The Bear
I don’t remember singing this. And I guarantee I didn’t hang out with a monkey doing it.
Great lil ol’ song!
2,600 a good place to stop.
5 and diner
You take that last one back and you take it back now
CP: Bring It On Home — Sonny Boy Williamson
You were warned. It’s movie time
Today’s movie is called: Shark Night
The DVR write up: In this clever shocker, vacationing college student Sara and her friends fight for their lives against man-eating sharks during a trip to her family’s island cabin
Remember: clever shocker
As I said before, all postings from this point will be five words or less.
So here we go…
Violence only? Hmmm
Ominouse under water sound effects
Cheesy opening credits
Still doing opening credits
Boyfriend removes her top
That was boring
And that was funny
Could be a disaster, could be fun:
I twouldn’t load on my iPad, Van. Will have to wait until I’m back on the computer to look at
Meanwhile… In the city
Playing video games
He told him the 410
Going to Sara’s house
3 hours, really?
Are you snorting steroids?
Flurry nude model
Flurry = funny *sigh*
Make room for Sara
On the road montage
Pretty lake side sunrise
Not so pretty bait shop
No cell phone coverage :shocked:
“tickle her privates”
I warned you about this!
Camers in women’s washroom
Watch your racial slurs
“Camers” is a racial slur?
He’s going to be first
“they’re locals. They’re harmless”
Red bull and vodka
I hate Sara already
Eight years of exploring the Saturn system in 5 minutes:
The classical tune used was also used in a series of cigar adverts in the UK.
Actually it wasn’t, got my classical tunes mixed up.
Three minutes of “Saturn 3”
I heard Kirk had a lot of fun on that movie.
I’m sure he did.
Very pretty tree lined river
Racing the coast guard
Friend with the sheriff
Bible study buddies?
Get to “know” your buddies in the biblical sense.
Getting to know you. Getting to know all about you.
This is one bizarre community
At the lake side montage
Always with the dog
Spraying his privates
With shark repellant?
Thinks highly of himself doesn’t he
How fast can sharks swim?
Motor boat is faster then
Molique is down
Molique was the first
Nick knows what to do
How did he know?
It’s a salt water lake
Famous last words
High speed shark
Why isn’t the shark dead?
That’ll learn ’em.
It’s Sara’s fault
Fire a flare. That’ll work
You’re in the house idiot
Humpty dumpty your ass together
Telling Molique Maya’s dead
Getting close to Sara
Awww, isn’t that sweet
I take that back, funny story
That was six words. Sorry
Shark in lake via hurricane
You should be in bed
These are stupid people
*sigh*. Just *sigh*
Shark hunting with a spear
That’s not the same shark
Use him as shark bait
This plot is baffling
Stripping for the rednecks
Red has shark teeth, literally
Feeding the cookie cutter sharks
I just don’t understand
Finally the sheriff shows up
Molique is an idiot
I’m so confused
Ok, that was hi-lar-ious
I fail to see the motivation
Dog is shark bait too
Shark snuff films
All for Shark Week
SARS deserves to die
Isn’t that a disease?
They have a great white
Big shark filled dunk tank
Sharks eat flambé
She’s in a shark cage
One computer-based training module completed today. Onward to the next one! 🙂
How can she die there?
Under water fight scene
The dog saves the day
Is she dead
Wow, amazing dog
Awww, my hero
My thoughts: stupid movie
Yeah, this movie was baffling at best. The motivation for filling a lake with sharks did not work for me at all.
Finally saw the youtube video on Elementary Van posted. There are a number of shows that I’m interested in for next year including 666 Park Avenue and The Neighbours
The Arm and the Stone – Victoria Strauss
The Google Doodle honors the Moog today. They should have gone interactive with this one.
“QWERTY” row of keys = white keys, number row = black keys. (Or you can click on the keys.) All the knobs work, too. Fun!
Well, yeah . . .
I am shocked! 😉
Didn’t he also come out as a Muppet last year?
He’s a muppet of a man.
This might renew my interest in The Walking Dead tv show. Such a fantastic character:
I haven’t read any of the comics. I wanted to enjoy the show for what it is trying to do.
I’m a big fan of the comics. You might like em, ditto!
EssBee really turned me on to the comics. I dont know if I’ll go back to the show now. The are SO FUCKING FANTASTIC and can do so very much more than the show can
That’s exactly why I’m avoiding them for now. I’m enjoying the show, so I don’t want to torpedo myself.
I sunk your destroyer!
Lo, is this what I’m supposed to watch?
Yeah!!! Grimy 1970’s NYC adventure film. Really good.
Okay! Gotta find it.
$2.99 to rent on amazon or itunes. I can probably manage that!
Hmm, it appears my @#%#*! phone ate my comment…
Guarantee: At least once while watching Warriors you’ll say, “Oh, THAT’S where that line is from.”
I only hope the Avs have as bright a future as our neighbors to the south
Devilish: Jersey Burns Rangers
“Out on the road today, I saw a __________ sticker on a Cadallac.”
B. Black Flag
C. Insert your own classic fave.
Tho Black Flagg would be the more better choice
I beg your pardon, sir!
Beg all you want.. Black Flagg is betta. Butta.
Good for fish, yucky for Mars bars.
Did you happen to see Margaret Cho as Kim Jong Il on 30 Rock?
More ”Flight of the Phoenix’ than Ironman in my view:
Wouldn’t The A-Team or MacGuyver have been a more accurate reference? Dare I wonder aloud if the Gizmodo article writer had even been born when those shows were on?
The original TFOTP was in the 60’s, way before A-Team and MacGuyver.
Plane crashes in desert, survivors build smaller plane from wreckage of original plane, and escape the desert.
Hubby came home earlier than expected last night. Mthey didn’t make quorum
I intend on making good on my hockey bet this weekend. Let’s see if my schedule holds up to that promise.
Anyone feel like taking a giant hammer to foolish landlords with me?
Worm your honor, let me hammer him today?
Looks like I’m going to have to pay to rent Pecker.
Do people still pay for Pecker?
I think DJ might have it. If not, I may have a copy at home.
Now that’s what I call low rent.
It’s the overhead that gets you. 😉
So you’ve never seen John Waters’ Pecker?
I wasn’t going to stand in line. 😉
I have my itunes cranked as I work. I’m glad I work alone
CP: I Want Everything — Cracker
Our 19 year old nephew just posted on FB that he had done the research and has determined that Obama is either the anti-christ or the last sign that the anti-christ is approaching.
Not true. I’m the anti-christ, Obama is just a poser.
Well, I’m more of a live and let live, anti-douche bag kind of guy, but the qualifications for being labeled the anti-christ are a lot lower theses days, so there you go.
there you go!
Of course the antichrist isn’t suppose to admit they are the antichrist. Dammit!
Yeah, you have to work on fire-and-brimstone delivery. 😉
This antichrist business is a lot harder than I expected.
Then who’s the Uncle Christ?
I think in this situation, he has two anti-s.
Ive heard of Uncle Cracker and U.N.C.L.E. but never Uncle Christ.
Not that anybody wants to know but I’ve reached 3,695 in my stupid contract review. I may even get it done today.
the most painful place on the body to receive a shot is……
I can’t speak to that one, Rhett. I’ll just have to take your word for it.
Now this question is tainted.
That’s not what Michael Rozsival said.
The brain is the least painful.
..and that sums up my medical knowledge.
Yes!!!! Not working late. Thank god for cancelled conference calls… and working through lunch. I’m hungry.
Yes I want to eff’n save my work! What an idiotic question.
I’ll have to look at it later. CCH and all that silliness
Your daily dose of wrong: Hello Kitty flavored condoms.
You can blame the Anti-Rhetro-Christ for this. 😉
The targeted market is either 8yr old girls or the entire Japanese population
Or Japanese with the mental capacity of 8 year-olds? 😉
So the condoms are flavored like hello kitty. Does that mean they taste vaguely of sardines and shame?
Tetris the movie:
Already more entertaining than “Battleship”.
Is it me or did nobody else think “aliens” when they thought of a Battleship movie? I personally saw something more WW2 related
Yes, but this is the right way to do it, when making a feature film based on a board game. “Monopoly” needs to be about aliens smashing Atlantic City to pieces and charging us to live in their little green buildings. The next “Clue” remake needs to be about aliens invading the Earth. . . using candlesticks in the Study. And then the Mousetrap film. . .
Or was that rebooted as “Saw”?
Was that Megan Fox, ala 14yrs old?
CCH for the last 20 minutes. Cancelled my butt.
CP: Soul Rebel — Bob Marley
Big indie game sale on the app store (as well as Steam and other services):
ZP sticks it to Sniper Elite V2:
I’ll watch ditto’s Pecker if he doesnt want to.
Does it have a tendency to wander off?
So that’s where it got to.
I now wish this horse’s name was Kelis and not Argenta…
While elevated carbon dioxide is associated with “milkshaking,” the officer agreed with O’Neill that his horse Argenta had not been fed a mixture of bicarbonate of soda, sugar and electrolytes that enhances performance and combats fatigue. The officer did not indicate what might have caused the overage.
“I’m gratified that the CHRB found that I did not ‘milkshake’ a horse or engage in any intentional conduct that would result in an elevated TC02 level,” O’Neill said.
Cut the Rope: Experiments goes free for a while as part of Apple’s app of the week:
Cute puzzler, the iPad version is free as well.
Very bad taste joke for the day:
12 Athletes have been suspended in the build up to the Paralympics after testing positive for WD-40.
*locks Van in the coat check closet*
I wish I knew how to SQUEAK you…
Very productive morning already. I’ve cleaned the bathroom. Threw in a load of laundry. Got the day job loaded up and ready to roll…
Let’s see how long I can keep this up.
JW: Awake episode 13 (this was the actual season finale)
Ugh, what a kopout.
Oh, bummer. I had hopes.
We’ll probably watch tonight.
Good Morning Pan
Got soaked on the way in. Saw a car that had been flipped upside down presumably because of the downpour.
It’s been an adventurous morning. Let’s hope that isn’t an omen for the holiday weekend.
So… Oklahoma is nice and moist.
I do so love my morning breakfasts in bed.
The service at this joint is pretty amazing. 😉
I want all the dirt when you get back! 😉
It’s a beautiful sunny day, for a change. The weather, at 8C, is quite nice. I think I’ll go for a walk. :happy:
CP: Hitchin’ A Ride — Green Day
Finally getting off my lazy butt and installing iTunes again. I hadn’t bothered to reinstall it after the last time I had to wipe and reinstall Windows. I’m doing it now because the Apple software updater prompted me to get the latest version of Quicktime, and iTunes was there as an option. I checked that box because the 7th annual Altador Cup event starts June 1st over on Neopets, and I have a playlist for that event that I created in iTunes, and I want to listen to it again.
Lovely walk. The fountain was turned on in the park. The bunnies were out in force today (the fuzzy ones with cotton tails, I mean). Very peaceful.
I think I’m going to have a grilled tomato and cheese sandwich for lunch today.
I’m not machine / Or machine,
I’m just something in between.
*hands Jack, Van’s red leather pants*
Tomorrow we get to go to some sort of gala for hubby’s school system. There will be a silent auction and the Premier will be there. I’m underwhelmed.
The tickets were stupidly expensive but we have to go. All admin staff were “strongly encouraged” to attend.
I picked up a book at the library and read the inside flap to get the plot. Sounded interesting so brought it home. Turns out that this is the sequel, the plot inside the flap was for the first novel. Now the first novel is not owned by my library. Trying to decide if I try to watch the movie version of the novel or try to find a used copy. Publisher, why the heck did you not say this was the sequel and have the plot of this one on the flap?
I hate it when that happens. Too many stores/libraries/etc. seem to have book 2 or 3 of a series but not book one. Why?
Good lord my report is taking its’ sweet ass time generating.
Looking forward to this Friday, Pannites– its *my Memorial Day* as I am going to slug away three 12hr shifts this holiday weekend.
On tap today– ACLS Research project (we get to run life-saving codes on dummies) and then off to grill steaks and veggies w/ my fave peeps (which includes the Wee People.)
To cap it off, board games and dessert and probably adult beverages after the Wee peeps hit the sack
Happy Friday and holiday weekend everyone. Be safe & enjoy your loved ones.
Hopefully the dummies will be well compensated for their troubles.
have a super weekend Pixie
I do believe I’m finished my work for the day.
Diablo 3 here I come!
CD : great divide yeti
On tap, delicious 🙂
Amazon is having a “Favorites of 2012” sale. There are a bunch of albums for $3 in the digital store.
CP: Coincidentia Oppositorum — Master Musicians Of Bukkake
Yeah, I know. I didn’t name the band. Still, the song is pretty good.
Oh I think it is an okay name, I’m just trying to figure out what a master musician of bukkake would sound like.
Like Acid Jizz
Or Spunk Rock?
A free form, Jam session.
If you are in Facebook you can find out whatcI’ve been upto tonight.
Father Time’s hand is resting heavy in my shoulder tonight.
What about those of us not on Face Book?
Wow Van. that’s great
I think we’ve learned the real reason why you hate Blade Runner. 😉
I can’t believe it! Devils over Rangers!
I will proudly watch Jersey Goil!
This one is for Lo Pan
OH MY SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!?!?!?!!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Greg Rucka on writing strong woman characters:
I’m tempted, if only to hide from the weather:
Of the 30 movies they show, I’ve seen seventeen. I guess I should join you to catch up on my video history
I’ve only seen 13.
I have only seen 10. What bothers me is that I have not even heard of some of these. Audition? Three Colors Red?
Audition is a Japanese horror/thriller. You can watch it on CrunchyRoll.
Three Colors: Red is part of the Three Colors series. It’s from France and came out in the 90s.
I’ve seen 8 of them but there are 3 that I have always wanted to see and just haven’t gotten around to.
Just saw the latest Wes Anderson movie.
Quirky, just like all the others.
Also bought an Airport Extreme router.
May make an art installation out of my previous routers..
*LIKES* this idea. Especially if it is mobile.
William Shatner hosting ‘Have I got News For You’ was rather fun.
So, I took the kids to the Games Workshop store, where they got a free miniature painting demo. We now have an amazing little Space Marine and an Aragorn. I’m afraid they may be hooked. . . Gulp.
Time to get a second job!
Nobody said growing geeks was a cheap hobby 🙂
Trust me Jack. It is like crack. Hubby recently got me hooked into buying some of the fantasy stuff, strictly for painting, not for gaming. I wanted to buy a paint stand so counted the paints I had. 57! How the heck did I suddenly get so many paints?
Anyway, currently working on this: http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/catalog/productDetail.jsp?catId=cat440005a&prodId=prod1530028a
Admittedly, I never follow their recommended colour scheme.
Ryah, you’ll have to post pics when you’re done!
We’ll have to start slowly. Reeeeeeeallllllllyyyyy slowly.
“Warhammer: The only game that costs as much as a Vespa.”
Well, time for a shower. Going to schmooze with some political mucky mucks
Motherlode goes free for a while:
2-4 players for the iPad, think board game without the bits to lose.
Family and I are off to skank to the beat!
Is that like skunk to the beat?
Is that like skunk to the beer?
Fishbone is full of win
The one that started it all!
Caffeine is ah-mazing!
I find your proposal intriguing and wish to subscribe to your newsletter.
Home. Safe. Tired.
Saw this tweet, if true it’s rather sad:
@dcurtis: SpaceX’s entire history, including rocket design, testing, and launch operations, has cost less than Facebook paid for Instagram.
Crap joke for the day (do a google for Maltesers):
Went to weight watchers last night.
Opened a packet of maltesers and threw them on the floor.
The best game of hungry hippos I’ve ever seen !!!!
I don’t have to do a Google search, we have Malteasers here in Canadaland.
Don’t Bogart my Maltesers?
*puts Van’s coat over his head. Pushes him in the river*
Honk if you don’t exist.
Diablo 3 was slow on my laptop. I’m installing it on my gaming PC to see how much better it does.
Off to see this show tonight:
Just don’t scratch.
But it’s so itchy!
Playing with Poison Ivy?
Crap joke for the evening:
I’d been seeing this Nurse for a few days and we finally got round to shagging…
As I stripped off I said to her: “You must have seen a few cocks where you work?
how do you rate mine?”
She said: “It’s just slightly bigger than most i see.”
I said: “Thanks, what sort of nursing do you do by the way?”
“I’m a Midwife.” she said..
Thats the way!
you like it?
Diablo 3 is super smooth on my gaming PC. That’ll learn me.
I think two separate resume and cover letter revisions is enough for one afternoon. Off to answer some job-related emails.
Time for my second run through ME3.
That’s all in the past now. 😉
lol I just thought it was a stupid article/non-story to begin with.
Colin Campbell calling someone’s actions unprofessional?
Too geeky for me:
Time to switch the brain off, at the cinema to see Men in Black 3.
I woke up with a crick in my neck. I’m not a happy bunny.
/waits patiently for someone to replace c with a p.
Don’t look at me. I’m not that short, nor is my husband that tall.
I added some photos to the Flickr pool.
Awww, you disabled the download. How can I grab them to put on my Deadpan ephoto frame?
Sorry, bunny. I can fix that.
Apparently, I can’t fix it since I have a free account. I’ll be happy to email full size copies to anyone that wants particular images.
Looks like the aquarium was fun?
I have a lot of photos from there. I really didn’t post many. lol
How can I see the deadpan Flickr?
These are the ones posted by ditto:
Songs on my iPod containing ‘x’: 497.
CW: The Sky Crawlers
Those double prop places look Dornier 335 inspired.
I enjoyed that movie.
Slow moving, but enjoyable and the air battle sequences are cool.
Agreed. A number of people don’t like the ending, but I didn’t mind it.
I had forgotten the 360 wifi adaptor supported the ‘a’ wifi standard.
Enjoying almost interference free streaming from Netflix.
Crap! even downloads from MS go faster, shows how crowded the 2.4GHz band is where I live.
I did something very stupid (sort of). I was cooking with jalapenos as preparation for dinner tonight. I was sure I washed my hands thoroughly but I must have been wrong. Rubbed my eye. Now my eye is burning. Silly me :silly:
I had a friend that was eating habeneros. He came back from the bathroom cringing, saying, “Wash your hands carefully *before* you go.” lol
I hate it when both living and dead taunt each other
Don’t you just hate it when a breeze flickers your candles?
I hate it when spirits try to override each other
I also hate it when pushy men try to take my ouija board
Yup, blood dripping on the floor when nobody is present also bugs me. I hope you don’t expect me to clean up that mess
And I’m definitely not cleaning up the mess caused when the old lady was killed by a flying ouija board
I would never attend a boring university lecture on spirits and ouija boards
And I really hate it when movies start showing a serene scene and then pop in a gory one just for the jump factor. It’s a cheap shot
And why are beautiful old house also all haunted? I would love a house like that… Without the evil spirits and stuff
It’s really nice when a family member dies and the house is impeccable. Beds are made, rooms dusted. Really good of them to leave things that way
Why are kids always so creepy?
Know it all friends who think you need closure are annoying
I’m also not a big fan of people who ask to stay after they’ve already moved all their stuff in
Or how about people that rent you a room in their boarding house then tell you you probably shouldn’t stay ther. Do they want my money or not?
Awkward house parties with forced conversations are always fun
I also find ghosts very inconsiderate. They keep turning lights on. It’s not like they pay the electric bill
I also have a thing against nosy friends who feel the need to nose around in your attic. Mic they see something, it’s their own damn fault
I also don’t like it when creepy dead people watch me as I’m recording
I also dont like it when people take things from my attic without my permission then insist we all play with the item he took
Anyone who says “I’m not an expert but…”
Creepy gargoyles aren’t my favourite thin either
I also don’t like, when you finally do contac someone from the other side, they just talk nonsense
I also hated it when the room fills with creepy dead people
Why do ghosts like to attack you with flying stuff. It’s just mean
Dippy university profs don’t work for me either
And why do ghosts alway lock you I. Or out of rooms? That’s just rude
And how do ghosts always know a person’s name? It’s not like they’ve been formally, or informally, introduced
And how is it, spirits are able to make people (usually the dippy female) so obsessed with something
And the footsteps upstairs when I’m trying to sleep. Seriously, how rude can you get?
And dreams. Why do they always have to be of death, gross things, insects, etc. what about happy things like puppies, kittens, posies, and stuff like that?
And under rude, why can’t I have phone connection? Maybe I have people to talk to
And basements… Don’t even get me started on ghosts obsession with basements
Although, advanced ghosts that know how to use wire cutters and such could be ok if they can fix the wiring they’ve obviously messed up
And pentagrams. What’s the deal with pentagrams?
And altering photographs. Really?
And then there’s the people. Really, splitting up is not the thing to do when in a tense situation
And when I’m in a bookstore, mind your own business. Just because I’m talking about evil spirits and stuff to the clerk, doesn’t mean I want you to listen in.
Why don’t any of the book store clerks I talk to have as more knowledge than I could ever want?
Why are all reporters pushy and dumb?
And mirrors. Seriously, my reflection should never, ever stop doing what I am.
And stop whispering! If you have something to say, than just say it!
Seriously, who doesn’t know that if a door opens in front of you, it’s not an invitation you want to accept. Especially if it’s a basement or attic
“I don’t want to alarm you but…”. Seriously, who wants to hear that
CW: Continuum E1
Old school scifi premise, loads of actors (mostly Canadian by the look of it) seen on other scifi shows.
The lead actress looks good in her cat suit.
We have it on our DVR
And if you’re trying to help, and you see something creepy happen, are you really helping if you leave and say, “call if you need me?”
And thunder storms, why do ghosts like thunder storms? Do they think the noise of the thunder covers up the sound of all the tramping around they are doing upstairs?
