  1. Just finished The Old Man’s War – John Scalzi. Now I have to figure out which of the Humble Bundle ebooks to move on to, or if I should start diving into the backlog of Omni magazines that I found because of Deadpan. Decisions decisions.

      • I was about the same. It got harder and harder as the book went along to buy that this was the only guy in the entire military that seemed to be able to pick up on the stuff he was picking up on. But it was still good all the way through. I’m also listening to Wicked on audio. Can’t say I like it near as much. Way too much politics and religion for my taste.

      • I image that sooner or later we will be able to find a torrent of the entire selection. For now it’s annoying that not all of the issues are downloading correctly. I’m sure that by the time I get to the ones that aren’t working correctly, they will be.

    Closing Music – Pretty Ugly Before

  3. I’ve been back on the PC playing games lately. I finally beat Diablo 3 with my barbarian. I’ve restarted playing Star Craft 2, hopefully I’ll figure out a winning strategy.

  4. LOL! This has been an especially good day for jokes here on the Deadpan. :)

    We’re waiting until Friday to do the Thanksgiving meal around here, due to travel times and work schedules. We’re having turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, and THREE different kinds of stuffing, because I have godparents who are crazy about cooking. :happy:

  5. Happy Thanksgiving Eve to all of your U.S.-bound Pannites.

    Happy Wednesday in November for all of you non- U.S.-bound Pannites.

    Regardless; be safe, be happy and be well.

  6. Crap joke for the day:

    A Martian couple and an Earthling couple have met and are talking about all sorts of things. Finally, the subject of sex comes up. “Just how do you guys do it?” asked the Earthling. “Pretty much the way you do,” responded the Martian. Discussion ensues and finally the couples decide to swap partners for the night and experience one another. The female Earthling and the male Martian go off to a bedroom where the Martian strips. He’s got only a teeny, weeny member; very short and very narrow. “What can you do with THAT!?” exclaims the woman. “Why?” he asked, “What’s the matter?” “Well,” she replied, “it’s nowhere near long enough. It’ll never reach!” “No problem,” he said and proceeded to slap his forehead with his palm. With each slap of his forehead, his member grew until it was quite impressively long. “Well,” she said. “That’s quite impressive, but it’s still pretty narrow.” “No problem,” he said again and started pulling his ears. With each pull his member grew wider and wider until the entire measurement was extremely exciting to the woman. “Wow!” she exclaimed as they fell into bed and made mad, passionate love. The next day the couples rejoined their normal partners and went off together. As they walked along the Earthling male said, “Well, was it any good?” “I hate to say it,” she said, “but it was really wonderful. How about you?” “Well,” he said, “It was the weirdest thing. She kept slapping me on the forehead and pulling my ears all night.”

  7. CD: Arvada Brewing Jolly Holiday Ale

    One of the the best spiced holiday ales I’ve had.

    Wishing yous and yours a happy tomorrow. And for those non-‘muricans, have a happy tomorrow just for the fuck of it.

  8. Well, we finally got to see Skyfall today. Honestly, Jen and I were both underwhelmed, by it. The premise nor the villain seemed strong enough to carry the film. Definitely rate Casino Royale higher.

    • We saw Skyfall tonight too. I rather enjoyed it and really liked Javier Bardem as the villain. He was delicious! Now, I have not seen a Sean Connery Bond film in over 20 years,so…

      I rather like Daniel Craig as new latest Bond. I felt this movie was about 30-45 minutes too long but it was still very enjoyable and a definite popcorn flick.

  9. Morning Pan, today’s mission is to shake off this cold so I can go
    to a concert tomorrow.

    So the first task is to scrounge up some paracetamol.

  10. Happy Thanksgiving Deadpan Peopleses. Here are the beers that I have had in North Carolina (since I got here last Saturday, I swear I’m not a lush).

    Blowing Rock High Country Ale
    New Belgium 1554 Enlightened Black Ale
    Left Hand Oktoberfest
    Sweet Josie Brown Ale
    Dark Cloud
    Heavy Seas Marzen
    Wildflower Witbier
    The Duck-Rabbit Wee Heavy Scotch Style Ale (Best so far)

  11. Thanksgiving crap joke:

    A man in Phoenix calls his son in New York the day before Thanksgiving and says, “I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.

    “POP, WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?” the son screams.

    “We can’t stand the sight of each other any longer,” the father says. “We are sick of each other, and I’m sick of talking about this, so call your sister in Chicago and tell her.”

    Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. “LIKE HECK THEY’RE GETTING DIVORCED,” she shouts, “I’LL TAKE CARE OF THIS.”

    She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at her father, “YOU ARE NOT GETTING DIVORCED! DON’T DO A SINGLE THING UNTIL I GET THERE. I’M CALLING MY BROTHER BACK, AND WE’LL BOTH BE THERE TOMORROW. UNTIL THEN, DON’T DO A THING, DO YOU HEAR ME?” and hangs up.

    The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife, “Okay,” he says, “They are coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own way!!”

  12. Random Skyfall thoughts:

    The first time the word, “Skyfall” is said during the movie, the hard-of-hearing elderly couple next to me said to each other, “What did he say? Stable? What does that mean?” They then repeated every one of Bond’s zingers throughout the rest of the movie. They were still better than the loudly yawning guy in the row ahead of us.

    The trailer ruined a lot of the experience for me. I couldn’t help thinking that the entire train sequence would have been much more suspenseful and exciting, if I didn’t already know how it was going to turn out.

  13. Bunny, I am so sorry to hear of your news today. I agree with Jack, though — take time to really enjoy your family around the holidays before diving back into the cesspool of corporate shenanigans.

    Vanamonde, I am glad to hear that the fever broke. Take Vitamin C and drinks lots and lots of (non-alcoholic) liquids!

    Pannites, let’s put a Done Stamp on Thanksgiving 2012. It was delish.

    I also give working 12-hour shifts for the next three days the finger.

    goodnight :cards against humanity:

  14. So sorry to hear about the job loss Bunny. Here’s hoping that you find something even better than the last job to you can truly thumb your nose in the air at the previous company.

  15. Crap joke for the evening:

    Teacher fell asleep in class and a little naughty boy walked up to him,

    Little boy:
    “Teacher are you sleeping in class?”

    Teacher:
    “No I am not sleeping in class.”

    Little boy:
    “What were you doing sir ?”

    Teacher:
    “I was talking to God.”

    The next day the naughty boy fell asleep in class and the same teacher walks up to him…

    Teacher:
    “young man, you are sleeping in my class.”

    Little boy:
    “No not me sir, I am not sleeping.”

    Angry teacher:
    “What were you doing.??”

    Little boy:
    “I was talking to God.”

    Angry teacher:
    “What did He say??”

    Little boy:
    “God said He never spoke to you yesterday…”

    • I rather like this and found it true. Tried to think of American exceptions to the rule … You’d have to go back to the 3 Stooges or I love Lucy to find popular comedians whose character was the “failure” person.
      There have been one shot exceptions along the way (“Dumb and Dumber”, AMerican version of “The Office”) but I can’t think of a comedian whose whole schtick is the “social failure”.

  16. So, I watched the new Batman: Dark Knight Returns Part 1 DVD…. Considering the source material, I feel like it should have been mind-blowingly amazing. It was just good, nothing more. If you didn’t know the comic, you’d never watch this and think it was linked to one of the most important comics ever published. I think this was just the next animated gig for the production team, not a special, career-defining project.

    I still look forward to part 2. Michael Emerson (Ben Linus) is an inspired choice for the Joker. Holy crap.

  17. Crap joke for a gloomy Sunday:

    A woman pregnant with triplets is walking down the street when a masked robber runs out of the bank and shoots her three times in the stomach.

    Luckily the babies are okay. The surgeon decides to leave the bullets in because it’s too risky to operate.

    All is fine for 16 years, and then one daughter walks into the room in tears. “What’s wrong?” asks the mother.

    “I was taking pee and this bullet came out.” replies the daughter.

    The mother tells her it’s okay and explains what happened 16 years ago.

    About a week later the second daughter walks in to the room in tears. “Mom, I was taking pee and this bullet came out.”

    Again the mother tells her not to worry and explains what happened 16 years ago.

    A week later the boy walks into the room in tears. “It’s okay,” says the mom, “I know what happened, you were taking a pee and a bullet came out.”

    “No,” says the boy, “I was jerking off and I shot the dog.”

  18. Modern cartoon voices are grating. They all sound the same and are horrifically annoying. Also, all of the characters are named Whitney and Brittany.

    kill me nao.

  19. Today’s movie is The Corridor

    The DVR write up: five guys head into the woods for a weekend of male bonding at a remote cabin, but find their sanity starting to slip after stumbling across an enigmatic supernatural corridor amongst the snow covered trees

  20. LAST CALL FOR DEADPAN SECRET SANTA ENTRIES!

    I was supposed to make assignments today. Sorry – the day got away from me. I will do it tomorrow.

    In other news, I now officially own my own .com domain. My new site-to-be is not ready for prime-time yet, but when it is, my Deadpan friends will be among the first to know. :happy:

  21. In my dream/nightmare overnight, Jack called the Sci Fi monster, that rose up from inside a dormant volcano on an island located about 2 miles of the shoreline of this glorious beachfront home and began terrorizing our seaside city, Seamillon. . .

    sigh

  22. Bad taste crap joke of the day:

    A Priest sees a little boy on top of a cliff crying.

    The Priest asks, “What’s wrong young man?”
    The boy says, “My mummy and daddy have gone over the edge in our car and I think they’re both dead!”

    The Priest looks around, pulls out his cock and says, “Not your day is it!”
