  1. Moring All.

    I feel like Im in Calgary. *Pixie sends Bunny a hug* Snow fell all night long & now it’s a steady, clackity-clack, icy rain fall.

    The wind is blowing and all of the tree branches are dropping heavily, as mounds of thick, wet snow push them closer and closer to the crunchy white ground.

  2. Honestly, I think I missed some people. That’s what I get for working while listening

    Closing Music You Need

  3. Ok, my computer’s picked up a bad habit and I need help to make is stop. Every now and then, a word on any page, including this one, will be highlighted. If I hover my mouse over that work, it is actually advertising for something that may or may not be related. I’m sure it’s a bit of malwear but I’ve cleared my cache and ran a virus scan and it still does this.

    Why? And how do I make it stop?

    • It was even more fun when I noticed a link to something called “Lose Change” which (judging by the thumbnail photo) is one of those 9/11 conspiracy videos.

      So I suspect this was not just brilliant fun but also brilliant parody.

  4. I’m sick today. Think I got the Con Crud from Megacon. Couldn’t sleep at all last night, congested, and no energy at all today. This is almost a new experience for me. I get sick about as often as it snows in Tempe.

  5. “Ring around the rosey. Pocket full of posey. Ashes. Ashes. We all fall *down!*”

    Pixie’s Snowy Day in Boston version:

    “Stomp around the slushy. Shoe full of icy. Raindrops. Raindrops. Pixie fall *down!*”


  6. Two thumbs up for Amy’s thoughts on DADOES, I feel like I came away with more insight for the book. Bravo!

    Also kudos to Rapid Eye and Tony for their input as well.

  7. Crap joke for the day:

    A old man gets on a bus theres no seats so he leans on his walking stick . The bus brakes and he slìps . A young boy says ‘mister if you had a rubber on the end of yr stick that wouldnt have happpend”.. The old man replys” if your daddy had taken the same advice id have a fuckin seat!”

  8. Those trixie Hobbitses aren’t fooling me this time. I’ll be holding off on buying until after all three parts have come out. Though, while the first part was decent enough, it wasn’t so overwhelmingly awesome that I feel the need to own it.

  9. My poor arthritic kitty. She can no longer jump so we have a set of little steps in the living room so she can get on the couch and a set of steps in the bedroom so she can get on the bed. Yesterday we got a down filled topper for our bed (I love airmiles). It makes the bed about 6″ higher. Now I have to go out and get a new set of steps as kitty has problems getting onto the higher bed. She ended up not sleeping with us last night. She was not happy

  10. We got rid of our dish 3 weeks ago and have switched to all local channels/PBS via an antenna + Hulu Plus and Netflix streaming and are really loving it. I feel much less tied to the TV.

    Two downsides: 1) I don’t think I’ll have access to Nurse Jackie because it doesn’t appear to be available on iTunes. 2) Hulu+ doesn’t have CBS shows, but we have a few cables coming so we can watch those through the laptop.

    I highly recommend it as a way to save $$. Next on our list is finding a new broadband provider. Our city is close to offering it, so we may wait, but I am sick and disgusted with Century Link, our phone/internet provider.

  11. Last but not least, opinion question:

    If you could choose between opening night of roller derby or NCAA Women’s BBall Tournament games on Saturday, what would you pick?

  12. Crap joke for the evening:

    Teacher says to class “give me a 10 letter word”
    Little Johnny says ” masturbate”
    Teacher says “ooh that’s a mouthful”
    Little johnny replies “no that’s a blow job and that’s only 7”

  13. Well, Pan. I am fully satisfied with worldly culture for the day.
    Just got back from an amazing dinner at a Cambodian-French cuisine fine dining restaurant, during Boston Restaurant Week.

    Start with the Irish on Sunday and end with French Cambodians tonight.

    Best part of it all… my Bestie and her 6 week old son, whom I’ve completely fallen in love with. (I already love my BFF of 30 years…)

  14. Jack said this on an email to Amy and I but it bears repeating here. If you are flying into Deadpan Land for the mmmmeetup and you aren’t getting a car, make sure someone knows your landing and take off times so we can make sure transportation is properly arranged.

    Actually, even if you are renting a car, knowing your itinerary is a good thing so we can make sure we are all together for food and such. (looks at ditto and TCat)

  15. Oh great god wannabe, why do I no longer have your email? I think I lost it when my computer died last year. Why is it not programmed into my phone like most everybody else?

    Any way, will you be making it to the mmmmmeetup?

  16. Crap joke for the day:

    A young courting couple die and go to heaven.

    When they have been there a while they ask God if they can get married. God suggests that they might want to wait and think about it for a while longer, “After all,” he reasons “you’re going to be here for eternity, which is a long time, so you’d best be sure.” He suggests that they come back and see him in a year if they still feel the same.

    A year later they stand before God and ask to be married.
    “Well, if you’re sure” said God “leave it with me and I’ll make the arrangements.”

    10 years they wait until they are again brought before God and married.

    Not long after they realise that they have made a mistake after all. They ask God if they can get divorced.

    God flies into a rage, shouting, stamping and waving his arms around until he is quire red in the face.


  17. Welp, my time in Bean Town comes to an end.

    Enough of the snow, diapers, chowda, Sox fans and baby poop.

    I need to get back to the Valley of the Sun, flip flops and adult poop.

  18. Finally saw “Skyfall”.
    I enjoyed it but I do NOT approve.

    It’s funny but the undertone of the film is an allegory for what they are doing to the franchise.
    Let’s see … the old, worn out, tired bond has no place in this new high tech world. Everything gets updated and more hip, more real and we cast off all of the old and tired and “gadgety” for a new vision of what espionage should be and, *gasp* in the end the tired old Bond still wins.

    Was I referring to the plot or what they are doing to the franchise? Pretty much the same isn’t it?

    • Considering they had to scrape and claw for the funds to get this one made, I dont think youll have to worry about what theyre doing to it. I think theyre about done.

    • Funny, I had a similar reaction to The Croods. It was well animated, visually stunning and funny in all the right places. But I’m getting sick and tired of the same tired old plot line. Seems any family comedy set in the past (recent examples, Ice Ave 3, Brave) MUST focus on how ridiculous old customs are and how the parents (nearly always the father [fuck you very much]) are staunchly set in the old ways with the younglings dragging the old folk kicking and screaming into “modern times” (Fiddler on the Roof syndrome. So it seems like Skyfall is Bond meets Fiddler on the Roof. I hope to watch it soon and find out. At least it wasn’t Bond meets the other animated family movie scheme (Bond is new to MI6 and just can’t seem to fit in, all the other 00’s pick on him mercilessly and he will have to work to maintain his self identity while simultaneously gaining the respect of his peers).

  19. Your crap joke for a wintry Sunday:

    A guy calls a company and orders their 5-day, 10 lb. weight loss program.

    The next day, there’s a knock on the door and there stands before him a voluptuous, athletic, 19 year old babe dressed in nothing but a pair of Nike running shoes and a sign around her neck. She introduces herself as a representative of the weight loss company. The sign reads, “If you can catch me, you can have me.”

    Without a second thought, he takes off after her. A few miles later huffing and puffing, he finally gives up. The same girl shows up for the next four days and the same thing happens. On the fifth day, he weighs himself and is delighted to find he has lost 10 lbs. as promised.

    He calls the company and orders their 5-day/20 pound program. The next day there’s a knock at the door and there stands the most stunning, beautiful, sexy woman he has ever seen in his life. She is wearing nothing but Reebok running shoes and a sign around her neck that reads, “If you catch me you can have me”. Well, he’s out the door after her like a shot. This girl is in excellent shape and he does his best, but no such luck. So for the next four days, the same routine happens with him gradually getting in better and better shape.

    Much to his delight on the fifth day when he weighs himself, he discovers that he has lost another 20 lbs. as promised. He decides to go for broke and calls the company to order the 7-day/50 pound program

    “Are you sure?” asks the representative on the phone. “This is our most rigorous program.”

    “Absolutely,” he replies, “I haven’t felt this good in years.”

    The next day there’s a knock at the door; and when he opens it he finds a huge muscular guy standing there wearing nothing but pink running shoes and a sign around his neck that reads, “If I catch you, your ass is mine.”

    He lost 63 pounds that week.
