In my defense….
My budding career has sucked up all of my brain cells, much in the same way as having children suck up the brain cells of their parents.
..and then there was Pi.
A definite Eddie Izzard vibe on Lejon’s intro to his story.
I wasn’t even thinking of Izzard at the time…
Did somebody set us up the bomb?
All your bomb are belong to base
Pouring cold water on scifi:
There’s a new Deadpan on my computer. It’s too bad I won’t be able to listen to it foe a couple of hours. Taking Boo’s car in to have the snow tires removed.
Ah Spring is in the air.

I’ll get my Lab Coat.
Splurged the $2.12 to get Bioshock Infinite from Redbox this weekend. Got it Saturday afternoon, played until 2am, then again for another 5 hours or so on Sunday morning. I’m one of those frustrating really slow, explore every corner type players so I’m still only a little past actually finding the girl. I will definitely get this again next time I have a free weekend (in a few months or so).
I just started it last night. I tend to play the same way, but I haven’t found the girl yet.
I’m still finishing my second play through of Persona 4: The Golden. Awesome game. According to the time counter, I’ve sunk about 130 hours into it. It’s probably a few hours more than that.
I was reading stuff online from serious gamers listing things that happened after finding the girl as “about 2 hours into the game”. It must have been more like 12 for me to get to that point. IMHO I’m getting more bang for my buck by stretching out the game.
No, no, no. Don’t make a sequel to Dodgeball!
Oh my agree!!!!
Satire but almost believable:
I wont feel bad for her but I kinda feel bad for her. And youre right – when I first started reading this there was a twinge of SHE SAID WHAT!?!?! even tho I knew it was satire.
I have returned.
now, I have lemons to grate

I have to go through some old photos. I’m not even sure where they are in my basement.
Wish me luck.
Oh. Before I forget (again). Talks are being talked at work and funding is coming through for more and more projects that need to be done with airports. And because Phoenix ran so well and was so willing to work with us, we are hoping to be able to go back there again… and again… and again. Nothing specific yet, but looks like it will be a popular travel spot for me. Now I just need to convince them to try the airports in CO so I can meet some of the other deadpan people.
Not to mention seeing my son who is stationed at Fort Carson (just south of Colorado Springs).
*whine* Nobody talks about Canadian airports
And what would you have them talk abaout, mam?
I think you meant Aboot.
It beats a frozen mukluk.
This^^ and then this^
Sorry. We’re a contractor to US government. If the Canadian government wants to talk to us about what we do, I’m sure we’d love to have the extra business. But, we all know Canadians can’t be terrorists. Too damn nice to go around blowing people up.
You would also meet your friends beer and more beer.
I’m always up for meeting new beer. Colorado has a metric but-ton of breweries. Been looking forward to visiting there for some time.
Ok, now I’m really delving into the depths of my basement. Let’s see what I find.
Why was my box of photos in the same closet hubby keeps his guitar cases in? Better yet, why are there two pairs of fake nose glasses in the same closet?
Wait, two pair of Groucho Glasses? You should take those to the mmmmmmeetup! Pictures must ensue!
Do I have to guess the secret woid?
(psssst – it’s “aboot”)
You have said the secret word and won $100
Not from me, unless you want play-money from the game Payday.
Opeth mooey mooey bombast
I’m a bad mom. Boo wanted me to find some pictures to scan in and send to her and I can’t see to find them anywhere. hmmmm
Well, my Boo will have to do without her pics. Maybe hubby will know where they are when he comes home.
Off to run some errands
CD: at work, on lunch break, eating leftover Thai and on the phone with UPS, as they open a “formal investigation…”

Sit down. Tell me all about it.

Apparently it’s snowing in the north end of the city. No sign of it here in the south.
I hate you for linking to this site!
win win wiN wIN WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Somewhere, there is someone who’s been clicking the “Random” button for 6 hours straight.
Yes, and now I’m afraid I’m going to have to hunt you all down…
When I type “Goodnight” on the Kindle, its follow suggestions are “Margaret”, “Lebowski”, and “shard.”
Ponder that to start your morning.
Goodnight :Lebowski and shard and Margaret:
Early this morning The Big Lebowski was found dead on the floor of his kitchen, a shard of Margaret protruding obscenely from his frontal lobe.
No? Too ponderous?
This might be happening later this morning
That looks truly terrible .
Really? It sounds very similar to “Dark Star”.
Youre not wrong
I think I shall challenge the Bunny to a “7 degrees of B movies” quest.
For this quest she must watch this movie, then go to it’s imdb page and … selecting one of the lead actor/actres whom she didn’t recognize and hadn’t heard of … go to their imdb page.
Once on THAT page, she must select a film they have appeared in but which she has also never heard of, and view that film.
Then … she must repeat that process another 5 times, tunneling her way through B-movies and their casts until, arriving at that 7th film … she will see if there is a connection back to this first film … or if she has become so sick of “no budget” productions, she can no longer watch B-movie films.
While this sounds interesting J0e, not as easy as you might think. Our cable subscription includes HBO and a few movie channels. Pretty much all the shows I do are recorded from those channels. I could do the NetFlix route but CDN availability is close to half what is available in he US.
And finally, That seems like a lot of work for something I do casually and I’m too lazy to rise to that kind of challenge 😉
AMANDA TAPPING??????? Ok Im in.
THIS should go down THERE
Nevermind. Shutting up now.
CPIMM: After The Deadpan— My Life With The Thrill Kill Deadpan
Do you know what time it is?
It’s movie time
Today’s movie is Space Milkshake.
The DVR write up: four astronauts are the last line of defence against a mutating rubber duck that wants to take over the universe
I got 13 out of 13:
I screwed up and only got 12.
What do you mean I only got 11 right. I think the quiz was rigged
13 of 13, I think Bunny is right, it must be rigged.
Fracking how did I not know what fracking was?
I thought that was something Starbuck did. How wrong I was!
That question I actually knew. Living in Alberta and all
I only got 12, because I honestly didn’t know what fracking was.
Violence and coarse language. They want to Mage sure we are discresed when watching
Has anybody seen the YouTube series Space Janitors? The on screen preamble reminded me of that
Wait, must pause to take Van’s quiz
Ok, back to the garbage scow
Big breasted babe putting in for a transfer
I read that as “Putting in big breasted babe for a transfer.”
I stopped at Big Breasted Babe putting in (I’ll be in my bunk)

Why does the captain like to take his pants off so much
Tilda to the rescue
Kristen kurek hasn’t said a word during this whole movie so far
Still got paid.
It’s lonely at the top
Tilda communicates with scrapple tiles
Tiles made from a mush of pork scraps and trimmings combined with cornmeal and wheat flour, often buckwheat flour, and spices then formed into a semi-solid congealed loaf, and slices of the scrapple are then panfried before serving ?
Gary was just a friend… Who gave me rubber ducks
The subtext on that one is… No, sorry, it’s just stupid.
The computer can’t say why women are so complicated
The computer doesn’t want to be called Walter
The captain wants to know how Gary is built
Jaws themed rubber duckie
The captain tries to talk to Tilda
You filthy cow
I’m not sure if its my fat fingers or iPad’s autocorrect
Go = goo
The captain has unusually Harry feet… I wonder why
Static electricity on over drive
The evil duck has grown tentacles
I read this as… oh, nevermind.
Dangerous power fluctuations
Talking rubber duck
This movie is great
Omg, Sulu the duck!
Don’t trust Valentina
No, never. Nope. Not me.
How much time is not much time?
Gun doesn’t work
The duck was an accident
Don’t trust the duck
Grab a plastic fork to protect yourself
Kill him as hard as I can

You’re completely made of meat
Meat that loves you
You can’t beat that.

They are still decaying
The duck must be good in bed

And he sparkles…
I just don’t understand this movie

Jimmy goo is an insulator
The time cube worked
Great. Is it calibrated with that atomic clock in Colorado?
Gary is class 10 debris
You know, I kind of liked tis movie. It was very silly. Sometimes that’s what you need in your entertainment
Now, it’s reading time
CR: Triumff – Dan Abnett
Bunny’s movie PBP — did it include Kelis’s song, “Milkshake?”
Damn right. It was better than yours tho. I COULD teach you, but Id need to charge.
This is amazing. I’ve not seen anything like this in a long time. A long time. Still unsure how it works. (Sound involved).
Hands Lo his coat.

It’s the 2nd comment on that site that makes the jump to the link worth while … or even juvinilier.
It’s a drawing for the 12 year old boy brain we all possess.
I was smart enough to dispose of the REST of the body though.
So the Point Break remake is happening.
Fighting nude chicks for the win!
Why is that the only scene I remember from that film?
I know why.
I guess I need to watch that movie again. I must have gotten bored before that scene.
I’ll have to watch Stripes again while I’m at it.
Dont be fooled by nostalgia. Not a good film.
However Stripes is still gold, Jerry!!
There’s no fighting chick scene…
Theres a few fighting dicks scenes though…
Yes, yes, yes Im including Lori Perry
Theres the naked chick-fighter who beats up Keanu. Whoa
Is Lori Perry the love child of Lori Petty and Linda Perry?
Charlize Theron and Teri Hatcher — 2 Days In the Valley
*thats* a girlfight for the ages
*THATS* a brilliant film.
One of the best…
Okay, I writing that one down.
Alright, I’m a bit disturbed that only 7% of testers manage to get a 13 out of 13 with those science questions.
I answered too fast on the last question. I’m sorry 🙁
Well, at least you’ve got a defensible explanation, good sir.
We are the 7%.
Seriously, thought Fracking was a made up term from Battlestar Galactica. I don’t do a whole lot of natural gas mining around here.
So, looking at the cast listing on IMDB for Bunny’s movie today, I must wonder – did someone have incriminating photos on everyone to pull that talent together?
AMANDA TAPPING INCRIMINATING PHOTOS?????!?!?!?!?!?!!?
One can but hope, and the you can imagine her not talking in the dodgy British accent.
You and I were separated at birth, weren’t we?
Yeah but you got the GOOD arm and leg.
Once upon a Deadpan query, while Bunny pondered meak and merry,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten video,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly Amanda Tapping!
Daniel Day Lewis was amazing in that milkshake movie.
How are we this bright sunny morning?

Hubby is getting the snow tires swapped out on his car so I gave him mine to drive today. Hubby really has issues driving my car so, hopefully, it will be ok. For some reason, he can never put it in the proper gear. I could see that if my car was a standard, in which case he wouldn’t drive it at all, but it’s an automatic.
*shakes head* I just don’t understand.
Damn it Word Press! That’s twice today. My page has not timed out. Maybe you need a time out.
Poor Beth. How does she put up with that guy?
If the end is any indication, copious amounts of wine.
I hope they do Jump as described in the article :happy:
I would put money down if they were to do that video.
This is Lo Pan approved.
Best part is her having to put the phone down and run to the other side of the kitchen island.
You kids with your cordless phones and your blue teeth and your wireless G twitters wouldn’t get that.
The only bit of disappointment I had is that they didn’t use rotary phones.
Not Cold Gin? (Yet to read the article)
I don’t live in any of those cities :silly:
Yeah take this with a GIANT grain of salt…. (see second paragraph)
You need to get TEB to move to where you live Lo, bump you up the list…
We have mass quantities of craft beer, the outdoors, sports teams, and culture to do. We dont need none of that fancy dancy reading.
Disclaimer: while it’s true I devour books, I have never read the 50 shades books.
Waitamminute… this list has *5* cities in FL???? I doubt the verisimilitude of this compilation.
Phoenix isn’t on that list.
Need more of the sleeps.
Good morning, Pan.
Yesterday my sister asked me “are you happy?”
Still considering a reply…
Ugh! Apple products. Ugh!
Everybody is so grumpy today. What’s that about. *happy hugs for all* :happy:
All things considered, I don’t feel all that bad. 🙂
When you do feel bad it will be an omen for the end times.
I hope not, I didn’t feel that great a few days back. 😉
I just realized, in one week from today I will be on an airplane to Deadpanland :cheerful:
I’ll be happy tomorrow on my way to Disneyland with Ralph and the kidlets! Today I have grumpies because I have tired and customers with Apple products.
I found that quite amusing
JW: The Americans S1 E12
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love this show.
I want you to know, the iwantmore website doesn’t work on the iPad. Will have to wait I til later when I’m back on the computer
That may be a good thing.
May warm the cockles of Jack’s heart:
*Hologram rose for Van*
75th Anniversary of the Cambridge Computer Lab:
I am eligible for an upgrade cell phone wise. Do you guys have any phone recommendations? I have an iPhone 4 and like it quite a bit except for the 3G slowness. I’m not thrilled to shell out $200 for an iPhone 5, but I’m not sure that there’s a better option for me.
Besides hanging with the iPhone 4 until it croaks.
Teresa recently got an iPhone 5 from her office and purchased a Samsung Galaxy 3 for personal use. If you liked you iPhone 4, then I would go for the iPhone 5.
I like the open platform and better Windows integration I get from the Samsungs, but I seem to have to take the battery out once a week to recover from the phone crashing. =P
Hubby had an HTC and had the same problem with the phone crashing. He switched to an iphone 4S and is quite happy with it. However, my Boo swears by her HTC. I guess it’s a matter of how much of a tinkerer you are.
I’m thinking I’m and iPhone person . . . it’s like justa JOe said to me once: if you like to work on computers, get a PC; if you like to turn it on and do what you need to do, get a mac.
Probably what I’ll do is just use the 4 for a while longer. I’m offended that I’d have to buy new cords and cases and everything – crappy!
Or if you’re a gamer, get a PC
Go for the 4S then, means you can still use the old cables and get a bit of a speed bump.
Really? I might do that. An upgrade there costs much less.
Pangea makes all it’s games on the App Store free for 24 hours:
I think there’s a conspiracy going on. Several years ago, about a half dozen of us washed elephants with George R.R. Martin (not a euphemism). Now that GRRM is the new hotness, my Boo asked me for copies of the pictures. It always helps the namedropping if you have proof to back it up. Anyway, I looked everywhere and I cannot find the pictures. I then contacted the others who were with us and they can’t find their pictures either. What’s up with that?
So that’s what he was doing while we were waiting for the next book . . .
/satirical fan a-hole-ness
Nope, without pictures, I don’t believe that you ever washed elephants with George R.R. Martin.
I’m hungry. I think it’s lunch time.
The news said the Calgary zoo is getting rid of its dinosaur park. It’s sad because we like walking through it but I do understand. It’s kind of hard to compete with they Tyrell
Oh, hubby’s car is ready. Time for a walk.
Hey! My Boo’s boss is on the news today
(Yeah, I know I should be getting hubby’s car. I’m getting there)
I went to Costco and only spent $40.00 if you don’t count the gas fill-up. If you do, then I’m still just under $100.00 so not bad for a Costco trip.
Us Brits don’t come off well in this list:
But the info in No.8 was new to me.
I shall be in the corner laughing manically.
I wanted to show you Boo’s boss and what she does but the video isn’t working. See if you can get anything
MasterChef is doing a Bond girl special ( the women judging the food by the chefs).
You can relax Lo, one of them is 85.
It’s been nice and my neurotic cat has been bugging me to go outside. Today I opened the back door and sat on the back step. The cat went into the living room. I picked her up and took her outside. She promptly jumped off my lap and went back in the house. I just don’t understand
You clearly misunderstood. She didn’t want to go out. She wanted YOU to go out.
These txts are both funny amd painful
Why would you do this?
Spoken like a true parent.
It’s going to be a struggle to live up to Ed’s “no old people talk” mandate.
I’m sure y’all will get me liquored up enough to get a few things past me.

CM: White Chicken Enchiladas.
A new dish for all of us… here’s hoping it is a raving success.
I thought that chicken tasted a bit “seedy Chinese restaurant”. . . .
Actually, it was delicious. 🙂
drats! That wasnt supposed to be a reply…
Don’t stare too long, it will burn your eyes out:
We are apparently the Derby Dame Davids vs. the Jack Burton Goliath.
Well, except that Goliath was kind of a dick, unlike Jack Burton.
The large female has not cleared her throat yet, sir.
So umm it appears Iron Man 3 comes out in the UK before the US.
Van, are you asking forgiveness in advance?
Apparently the UK is the cinematic “canary in the coal mine”.
I’m not sure if this is really cool, or would just scare the crap outta the kiddos…
just keep telling yourself “happiest place on earth”
There will be no spoilers.
..and I’m still up for seeing IM3 in the USA.
Go, Van, go!!
This morning I am making 5 batches of cookies. We are having some on out table at comic expo
Like last year, I probably won’t join in for the movie
Up and showered. Now it’s time to clean the washroom the bake my little heart out.
Ack! Only have enough sugar for two batches of cookies. Will have to go out and get more in an hour or so.
So not to shabby, but 1 is still the best in my opinion.
The Mantis Shrimp is well hard:
Yep, they are very cool. I never got to see one when I used to scuba dive. 🙁
Sir, while this was gloriously interesting to read I must call you on your misleading headline.
Just my attempt at cockney, nothing to get worried about.
YOU DID IT AGAIN!!!!
I don’t think you would like me dressed as Britney Spears.
I could get into that.
I did it again
Just about to pull my second batch of cookies from the oven. Then, off to the store with me. :cheerful:

Fuck and yes. *understand completely*
I have a question for people with a good deal of comics knowledge. I’m looking to start talking online about my area of expertise, psychoacoustics (relationship between sound and the perception of sound) and want to create a character to go along with it called Psycho Acoustic (a psychotic criminal that works with sound). I’ve tried looking around to see if this has been done before, but my inability to find it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. The name was so obvious to me that I have a hard time believing it hasn’t already been done. Anyone see a character like this before?
Clearly he is the lone survivor from Experiment #9. (see “Kate Bush”)
Sadly, the experience has left him (a) criminally insane. (B) able to reproduce the effects of the ill conceived experiment.
Interesting back story. Just watched the video for Experiment IV. Just kept thinking… is that Dawn French and Hugh Laurie? It was.
IV, IX :pinch: … Yeh, I’ve never been very good with math.
I can recall Thunderbolt, Banshee, and Dazzler from the old Marvel comics, but none of them are villains.
Klaw, maybe? I only remember him from Marvel’s Secret Wars series.
Banshee used sound, but she wasn’t a villain. I remember Siren from DC, but she was a minor villain. After a quick search, Flash had a villain called The Pied Piper.
That’s all I could find.
I remember “Fortissimmo” from the Freedom Force video game.
Fortissimmo – An Italian opera singer of questionable ability given Energy X powers by Blitzkrieg, Fortissimo can fly and emit powerful sonic attacks. He employs men costumed as Roman centurions as his henchmen. When first encountered, he is trying to destroy significant cultural artifacts such as the original Gutenberg Bible, the Summa Theologiae, and Shakespeare’s first folio. Freedom Force also encounters Fortissimo when traveling further back in time in an attempt to disable Blitzkrieg’s force-field generator, and in the “present”, when Fortissimo is brought forward by Entropy to destroy culturally relevant buildings in Patriot City. In this final encounter, he is eaten by a dinosaur statue animated by Entropy. Perhaps influenced by the Fiddler and other musical Golden Age supervillains.
*facepalm for failing to notice Jack already mentioned Banshee*
What about Fran Drescher?
I think she’s a super villain. 😉
Well, let’s consider this #1 of 3
One if country music’s last rockstars has passed away
RIP George Jones
His heart wasnt ready for the Rolling Stones.
I hope he met a peaceful end.
If he’s #1 of 3, can we choose the next 2?
This just in: Stupid people should not be identified as stupid since they clearly have not been labeled so.
That is all.
*nods. munches nuts*
Well, “monkey nuts” are clearly a meat product, I’d be surprised to find a peanut in there.

CD: Mission – Shipwrecked Double IPA
Im not really hip on San Diego breweries, but this is a DAMN delish brew. Sweeter than most
SD breweries do seem to love their IPAs.
We got more sour than hop, though, when we visited the Bruery and Bootlegger’s on different trips last year.
Alas, I do wonder why I torture myself some days.
You could have that outsourced you know.
Einstein is still bringing home the bacon:
Gullibility test (I got 4 out if 10):
Only managed 5/10. Guess I better stick to science quizzes….
4/10 for me as well. I don’t want #1 to exist.
7 out of 10 Woot!
7 of 10 for me, too. It should have been 8, but I got my gravitational theory backwards. I knew the earth was wider at the equator… darn it.
Good morning, :panties: !
I look forward to May 01, 2026
Made an effort to try and clear some of the backlog on the DVR of new series I’ve recorded but not watched. So far:
Defiance – pushed myself to hang on for 30 minutes before I just couldn’t take anymore. It came across as completely derivative and unoriginal.
Orphan Black – Caught the pilot. The premise is intriguing enough, but the lead actress doesn’t yet seem strong enough to carry the multiple parts that will be required. Still, I think we’re going to check on the second episode on this one.
Really enjoying Orphan Black myself. I find that it is growing with each episode.
I must confess, Pratchett’s work isn’t one I’ve gotten to read yet. Does Mr. Sanderson have the right of it?
I haven’t either, Ed. I am reading Mistborn right now, speaking of BS – liking it!
A lot of the humour is very British which you may not get.
Also he is commercially successful fantasy author, still a lot of snobbery against that genre.
I love Pratchett. If you like satire, you’ll like his stuff.
Worked a booth at comic expo yesterday. Will be going back later today. Got an autograph with Wil Wheaton. Woot.
We just got home from the Verizon store. I went for the iPhone 5 – sheesh.
Welcome to the club.
It does have a lot of members..
Now I have to upgrade my OS X ($20) so that I can update iTunes so that my new phone will work. Grr.
And the trend will continue from there.
Can you hear me now?
Halfway through busy day.
Been a pretty okay day so far.
Can I “hold” at this point or do I have to let the day continue to deal me more cards?

Lost in translation:
That site is a porky!
CD: Homemade sloe gin and lemonade
Tricky but cool:
Thats goddamn delightful
Cool and tricky
Reason #243 I wish ity was still 1995
Tricky was never the same after getting killed in The 5th Element.
Well, while last week’s episode, particularly the ending, was among the most satisfying episodes of Game of Thrones, tonight’s was quite possibly the most impactful with Jaime’s confession to Brienne. I had been looking forward to seeing that scene as much as seeing Daenerys conclusion at Astapor.
No spoilers please!!!
Not bothered about spoilers, but probably won’t catch this episode till I’m crossing the pond.
I shall endeavor to remain as vague as possible.
Looks like it’s going to be a bit on the warm side in Phoenix this weekend.
Looks like I’ll be a bit on the sweaty side in Phoenix this weekend.
Be safe and drink plenty of your choice of fluid.
No Kidding! I told hubby the predicted temperature and he just laughed. Better me than him I guess.
Survived Comic Expo. It was fun, except now my legs are sore from standing on a concrete floor for several hours a day.
Now it’s time to do laundry and get ready to travel to Deadpan Land on Thursday. While comic expo was fun (minus a few hiccups hubby for poor hubby), all things considered, I know I’m going to enjoy Arizona much more.
The guy who comes on stage near the end of the video is Boo’s boss.
My house is situated sideways on our lot so instead of a back and a front door we have a left side and a right side door. I don’t know what’s going on lately but twice in the last couple of weeks, (including just now), we’ve had some work done at the house and the worker came to the door and asked which side was our. We’ve been here 17 years and nobody has mistaken our place for a duplex so why now?
today’s tip: When taking a pair of pants and putting them on straight from the dryer, don’t let the metal button touch your tummy. Ouch! That hurts.

So we have no plan for this year’s NHL playoffs. I was gonna just leave it, but I have an idea with some potential, and with low pressure/commitment.
Pick a team you expect to get eliminated. Others will do the same. Whoever’s team lasts the longest in the playoffs must record an Unshow sometime before Deadpan is done.
We’d have to pick teams by Thursday if we wanted to play this way this year. The games begin Wednesday.
I’m in! Dibs on San Jose.
Me too, assign any team you want.
Is Anaheim one of the teams?
Anaheim made it Cj. You can gave them. Lo Pan is locked out, but has emailed a claim for St. Louis.
Got EssBee for SJ, and Van TBD. Cool.
Add me to the TBD list. I’ll take whoever is left after everybody else has chosen.
Why oh why did I press that link?
I pick the Kings to get eliminated.
I pick the Leafs to get eliminated. I don’t want it to happen, but I know it will. 🙁
Ditto, how can you “like” my status?!? I certainly don’t.
FB really needs something other than “like”. 🙂
It’s been a while since I’ve posted here. I’m looking forward to seeing many of you at the Meet Up in a few days!
As you may know, Ditto and I volunteer with the American Cancer Society and participate in the Relay for Life. Ditto will soon be asking for donations from you and I just HAVE to come in early and steal his thunder. (And his donations.)
So please consider giving a donation to the Relay for Life here on my webpage: http://main.acsevents.org/goto/traceybormanncattarin2013 ESPECIALLY if you were going to give a donation to Ditto.
P.S. Yes, I am evil and Ditto likes it.
I am suddenly thunderless.
In an attempt to steal my thunder back, here’s my donation page. 🙂
ditto… what can I say? She has boobs, man. You cant compete with boobs.
And I appreciate you too, Lo Pan.
It can stop snowing now
Stop sending your snow here!!!!
I have an inkling to rewatch ‘The Blue Max’.
Gawd knows how (it’s not on Netflix)..
Crap joke for the day:
I found my Auntie dead in her bed this morning, I was gutted, I put my arms around her and held her as a tear rolled down my cheek I noticed that she was naked. I ended up fucking her, just as I was about to cum she shouted BOO! I mean what sort of sick Bastard pretends to be dead?!
Will there be an In-Flight Service of “Crap Joke of the Day,” as you cross the pond on Thursday?
Mile High Crap(per) Joke, perhaps?
Nope, communication blackout till I reach Phoenix.
I would like to stake claim to those damn dirty apes of Los Angeles
My Unshow theme could be something like:
Rise of the LA Reed Raider Nation Queens
On behalf of T Cat & I, thank you very much TEB!!! 🙂
Seth! Jones! Coooome on down!
Sorry Rhett. I missed your claim to LA. I will pick a different team
Jack, please put me down for Boston Bruins.
Stop posting here!
I’m still posting here. Nanny nanny boo boo.
It’s downright post toasty here.
