Aww, Van – my F5 key broke!
Van – since you offered – are you available at this time (and preferably a bit earlier) for recording?
Morning Cj, just look at the times LOL.
We were both on the page at the same time, but you were still on top!
Shouldn’t be a problem Jack, and earlier would be better.
Does anyone know the phone number to call into the Deadpan?
It’s on the front page Cj:
It’s 2am. This is ridiculous. Why am I still awake.
Someone needs to hit me over the head with a frying pan.
Goodnight, Van and Pan.
That’s scary, CJ. You went to bed an hour before I got up for work.
That’s almost a Monty Python sketch.
Now, excuse me while I pay the mill owner for permission to come in to work.
Insomnia is stupid.
I’m back out of bed again. The bed is apparently broken because it’s not effectively putting me to sleep.
The McNuggets didn’t pull it off last night, and now I’m up and off to work out.
Another beautiful day in the neighbourhood.
Will have to wait an hour of so before I can listen to the show 🙁
Felling old. The youngest kid turns 21 today.
TEB: You are never old here. 🙂
Notes are now up
awww, thanks ditto.
Really sore and achy this morning so only did a half workout. Think I hurt myself doing shoulder rolls the other day. Hopefully we won’t be doing rolls tonight.
TEB, I hear you. I’m also sore and achey today. I think I’ll do a bit of stretching before heading out the door.
Have a good day!
Have fun at Evil Inc. EssBee.
My body is rebelling against being awake.
My body is just rebelling…
Are we talking Heroes?
I’m not to RebelFM, but I am listening to the Geekbox.
Well after looking at the shownotes you seem to have a problem with ‘e’ TEB.
My poor kitty. She hates everybody except s me (and maybe my husband). Whenever she has to go to the vet, I have to drop her off early so they can sedate her in order to do her exam. I always feel sooooo guilty when I leave her at the vet. She just looks at me and meows pitifully. 🙁
I just don’t know what it is about your e that I’m adverse to, Van.
Fixing it now.
I’m wearing my Woot shirt today “The Night Shift” – how appropriate for me today!
Cute shirt, Cj.
Did you get any sleep last night?
EssBee: Is your workplace really like http://www.evil-comic.com/ ?
The Suff Mom Never Told You podcast had a pretty good show on why women seem to cry more than men
There’s no crying in baseball!
Is this a blanket rule? What happens if you get hit with the ball, ditto? The bat?
(I know it’s a movie quote but still…)
TEB: Women cry more than men?
*GRUMBLE* leave one stinking Parenthesis off your name, and the Comment Nazis at Word Press have a fit… Hrmff
Twitter fans might get upset about this: I bet it won’t be long before the RIAA lawyers go after Twitter.
TEB: It’s men doing manly things!
I could never get into Twitter
Real men don’t eat quiche?
Uh-oh. I eat quiche. I make it too. Crab quiche is very yummy.
Does that mean I can cry in baseball? 😉
EssBee: I’ve bought the new Depeche Mode album but haven’t listened yet. I’ll let you know what I think as soon as I do.
CP: Pietas Ilulia (sore throat special, track only, no narrative) — Scanner
This is the kind of electronica I like: not overly repetitive, layered, and melodic. I think this falls under minimalism, like Glass’ work.
Now that I think about it, the “(sore throat special, track only, no narrative)” is commentary from the host and not part of the song title.
Reznor is a pretty cool guy:
Eggs are one of fav foods, but quiche always tastes too eggy for me.
The above may not make sense.
CW: Being Erica – S1E10
Now that I have finished the season finale of Heroes, I find myself wondering why I wasted time on it again after I had stated that I was done with Heroes.
Am I the only sucker here who fell for this last “Chapter”?
My mother had a Recipe she got from somewhere. She’d written it down as Quick Ginch.
Came to find out it was supposed to be “Quick Quiche”.
I like broccoli and cheese quiche.
And my quiche eating father would sometimes say that “Real men don’t eat quiche.” And other times he would say “Real men eat quiche.” I guess it goes both ways.
Schroedinger would have been proud of your Dad NS.
Is there a cat in the quiche?
I suppose if there can be Toad in the Hole, there can be Cat in the Quiche…
Last night ended a quest for me. I now have the complete Farscape series on DVD.
Of course, the way Sony has been buying up the rights, it’ll probably be on Bluray in a month, and I’ll have to buy it all again.
Cat in the Quiche was one of Dr. Seuss’s less successful books.
Although – what the hell rhymes with “quiche”? Microfiche?
I have many posts to respond to. Off I go. I will make mad the gods of WP by posting to quickly.
TEB said, “Cute shirt, Cj. Did you get any sleep last night?”
Thanks! I love this shirt!
I finally fell asleep after my hubby’s alarm went off at 4:30. He had an early account. I slept until 6:30. So, two hours of solid zzz’s.
RE: Crying Article
I’ll have to read the article on crying. Maybe I won’t feel so bad after. I’m like a human waterfall. I cry when I’m happy, sad, tired, angry, or scared and probably other times too. Men probably cry less because they are too busy making the women cry. (Men of Deadpan excluded in my assumption – you all just make me laugh and swoon)
File sharing over twitter just seems like a dangerous prospect altogether.
I love it. The little frozen green chile and cheese ones from Trader Joe’s are especially favorites.
Srsly. Quiche is yummy eggs and cheese placed into one of my all-time favorite foods: pie crust.
ZOMG, I love love love pie crust.
I just don’t like pie.
And is it just me, or is Jack totally sexy when he says, “Microfiche”? The word is just sexy. Jack makes it sexier.
sexy sexy sexy.
What is WRONG with me? I think I need a nap.
Cj: Should I start worrying about you now, or when you’ve lost as much sleep as I have?
Cj – Is it the word or the small pictures that you looked at while researching that term paper.
I think CJ wants Jack to be singing “I’m too sexy for my microfiche.”
Wolf: It’s the word. The only thing I ever looked at on microfiche were credit card accounts when I worked in the credit repair industry.
Bad credit = Not Sexy
Lejon: You should never worry about me. I have already hired a designated group of professional worriers who are paid highly to stress out about every move I make.
Every breathe you take.
I used to work at the University library, and we had lots of things backed up on microfiche such as magazines etc. Ironically, my supervisor, who happened to be a woman, cried more than anyone I ever knew. I eventually transferred to Special Collections.
To quote Prince:
You Sexy Microficher
I touch microfiche.
EssBee: I’m feeling a bit underwhelmed by the new DM album. 🙁
Remember, Remember Microfiche of November.
The library records and cards.
I Know of no reason
Microfiche of November should ever lose regards.
So the BBC puts Slaughterhouse 5 into the category ‘War and Disaster’
Can’t have the stain of scifi applied to a classic.
Three card tables for an auto dealership, Panda Express, Home Depot, a bunch of local college and armed forces recruiters does not a “Career Fair” make. Rather than use up valuable Convention Center space, I suggest you hold the next such gathering in the breakroom at the local Target Greatland. I would like my afternoon and the $1.65 I fed the parking meter back, please.
P.S. What kind of rice in your Panda Bowl?
So, I finished listening to DP127 at lunch. And now, there’s an Unshow.
I’m never going to get caught up. I should just crawl into a hole and listen to old episodes of Technorama. At least they’ve finished their run.
jackmangan: I don’t eat rice from Panda Bowls anymore. My doctor says I can’t have rice… I usually just do sashimi.
There’s no rush, Lejon. Thanks for listening. 🙂
This site looks like a great way to lose an afternoon:
jackmangan: I lied. Technorama apparently came back.
Iraq is off my to see list:
Just scroll down to the giant camel spider..
Well 5am start for me, so night Pan.
OK – I am stepping away from the computer now
Jack: That sucks.
Van: I think they forgot the coconut crab.
Well, there we have it, I’m going to hell again for laughing at Jack’s link.
Lejon, that IS where I work.
ditto, I didn’t have a lot of hope for the DM album. Here’s my new obsession: John Doe and the Sadies “Country Club” GREAT album. Also, the new Green Day is very nice.
Jack, I’m laughing with you, not at you. Those bastards!
EssBee: I like the new Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs album quite a bit.
Another Mark Forman-related link.
Oooh, me too, ditto. I luv Karen O. Mucho.
CP: Conference Call Purgatory. About to share the praise I’ve gotten from coworkers and students lately re: my teaching ability. Nervous, but I’ll live.
CP: Bleed – Meshuggah
This may be the heaviest .mp3 in my iTunes. It’s right up there with Strapping Young Lad.
CPIMM: I’ve Been Everywhere – Johnny Cash
(while looking at Kraken Thief’s Flickr photostream)
You’ll do fine sharing your praises received, Amy 🙂
Meshuggah, Youshuggah, we all shuggah!
Okay, I’m done talking. I did fine. 🙂
Of course you did, Amy. How could there be a doubt?
I’m going to bed. Next stop, Vegas! I’ll be sorta-kinda outta touch until Sunday-ish.
I’ll be tweeting if I’m sober enough to hit the little buttons on my cell phone. (Deadpan drunk dials are possible … creation of Dumbass memories even more possible)
And um… Oh yeah, my team came in 2nd place in this years MOMS Club Scavenger hunt.
Much love to everyone! Have great weekends all of you!
Safe and happy travels, Cj (and Debbie). What happens in Vegas can be repeated in Deadpan voicemails. It’s a loophole.
CP: Romantic – Walter Meego
Why am I not asleep?
This smacks of importance: http://www.boingboing.net/2009/05/29/usa-canada-and-the-e.html
OK. Goodnight mush.
Spellwight is a funny drunk twitter’r. I haven’t seen any from Cj yet.
This play-by brought to you by “Weekend Coming.”
I really don’t understand why anyone or any company or any country would be against this.
Oh, right. I’m going to learn to read braille so I can get free books. It’ll be rad.
I have that Polar Bear feeling today.
Safe trip Cj. Do everything!
Warm and fuzzy, Van, or cold and icy?
More roll on winter Essbee.
Poor TEB always gets mistaken for me!
Morning, Everyone! TGIF, huh?
No TGIF for me, EssBee. Month end. Will have to do some work on the weekend. Although the hubby wants to go see Star Trek again this weekend if we have time.
What was the very first thing hubby bought for the new Blu-Ray? Season One of Star Trek TOS 🙂
We are making our way through Season 1 of the “new” Dr. Who. We saw a great episode last night – The Long Game.
Have a great day, everyone! I’m off like a prom dress.
Oooooops sorry TEB.
21C today and already I’m finding it hard to bear (haha).
As for TOS, my nephew has it on DVD, watching a few episodes satisfied my nostalgia for the series for the rest of this decade.
Off to see Drag Me Down to Hell, I’m in a mood for a silly horror flick.
Don’t clean out all the money from those casinos! Save some for me for my trip in July 🙂
Just about finished packing. We’re taking a short weekend trip to the ancestral homeland of San Antonio. My mom is retiring after twenty years as a teacher’s aide in the school district.
Tomorrow, we’re spending the day at Schlitterbahn.
It should be a nice warm weekend for playing in the water.
Does anybody think this might actually work without JW?
So will this change the phrase from “popcorn movie” to “bubblegum movie” ?
That place looks cool, Ed.
It’s the wiggly butt in the speedo that makes this game!
I want one of these. Do you think my cat would approve?
I see a buddy movie in the making… Rorschach and Deadpool
Woops, here’s the link 🙂
Well the grocery store is calling me. Then my oven is requesting Pecan Kisses.
This is the first review that makes me want to see “Drag Me To Hell”:
Didn’t make it to the store yet. Leaving soon.
I did tell my mother off, though. Does that make me a bad person?
Insult overheard at the grocery store:
It must be nice to be able to repair everything. There is not a thing in the world you cannot fix because you… are the ultimate… tool
What was really funny was the person this was said to didn’t realize they were being insulted 😀
Cheyenne Wright tweeted that it’s an unofficial Evil Dead sequel. That raised an eyebrow. I think I’m going next week sometime.
CP: I Will Still Be Laughing — Soul Asylum
CS & D (currently singing and doing) C is for Cookie, that’s good enough for me
C is for cookie, that’s good enough for me.
C is for cookie, that’s good enough for me
Oh, cookie, cookie, cookie starts with C.
Unofficially, I only liked Evil Dead III.
Mostly because it was “Groovy”.
It was very cheesey and the ‘twist’ was oh so predictable.
One to watch under the influence.
CP: You’re Everywhere — Blue Rodeo
Fun and eminently quotable.
It was smart. It was “S” Mart.
Like the tiny car.
New Dr Who assistant in 2010 series:
I never used to read the news. I still don’t but I get a lot more by reading here.
Heading home, Pan – Then I’m off to EVFN.
It must be some strange attraction to Evo Terra, because I hate socializing.
*no one read that, right?*
CW: Dr. Who – the episode where Captain Jack first appears. SCARY!
CP: On the Morning Dew – Elvenking
CP: The Celts – Enya
Good night, Pan.
CP: Soul Coughing “Unmarked Helicopters”
CP: Cake “Italian Leather Sofa”
“She doesn’t care whether or not he’s an island.
She doesn’t care just as long as his ship’s coming in.
She doesn’t care whether or not he’s an island.
They laugh, they make money.
He’s got a gold watch.
She’s got a silk dress
And healthy breasts
That bounce on his Italian leather sofa. “
CP: Jonathan Coulton “Mandelbrot Set”
(When computed and graphed on the complex plane, the Mandelbrot Set is seen to have an elaborate boundary, which does not simplify at any given magnification. This qualifies the boundary as a fractal.
The Mandelbrot set has become popular outside mathematics both for its aesthetic appeal and for being a complicated structure arising from a simple definition. BenoÃ®t Mandelbrot and others worked hard to communicate this area of mathematics to the public.)
Morning Pan, last day of the working week.
Captain Jack calling the Doctor a Uboat Capatin…lol
The brightness is falling from the sky.
CP: Sixteen Tons – Tennessee Ernie Ford
So today’s commute is by train..with a bunch of bleary eyed younguns who have obviously been out on the town judging from the crumpled attire.
CP: Why Don’t You Get A Job – The Offspring

Awesome Hubble pictures:
CP: Coming Home – Adrina Thorpe
EssBee – wow.
It looks like today is going to be a gorgeous one in Longmont, CO. I have lots of ambition for projects, but will likely sit on my patio and read Snow Crash most of the day. I’m about mid-way through. I’m reading it so slowly for some reason (not because I don’t like it).
EssBee: Maybe it’s because it’s so good, there’s so much detail, and/or you don’t want it to end? I’ve read the first quarter or so of Snow Crash, and I’ve wanted to get back to it for a long time.
It took me a while to get into it, Amy, but now I’m really in to the story.
Looking at the prices of ebooks on iTunes..they have to be kidding..
If you want to delete some adobe bloatware on XP/Vista systems and still be able to read PDFs then have a look at Foxit:
The free version works fine for most PDFs.
Good morning from Vegas. I so don’t want to get out of this bed.
There’s no sleeping in Vegas!
I’ve received some good voicemails this week.
EssBee, that whole photo series is amazing. How did we ever get blase about this kind of stuff?
As it turns out, my son is playing in a chess tournament in Vegas next weekend. That’ll be my first trip back to Vegas since I was 12.
EssBee: Great. I got into it right off the bat. Have a good time with it!
Just finished Series One of Dr. Who. Loved it.
Another Dr Who fan is born..
Although I feel compelled to ask (after reading Essbee’s website), when was it decided that powerful = fat?
Ha! Van, there is a Native American writer/scholar/politician named Greg Sarris. That is his joke, actually. His aunties are “powerful” women.
We’re going to watch Grey Gardens (the documentary) tonight. I just pulled the steaks off the grill.
I’m at the airport. I wanna be home now. I love free airport wifi!
Did you have a nice weekend Cj?
Go Rhett’s son! w00t.
Welcome back, Cj.
Nine games computers are ruining for humanity:
Oh and if you want an exercise in futility you can play Chinook here:
Also six things science has revealed about the female orgasm:
EssBee – Bright comment, eek. How cool and scary.
That New Scientist article seems to end on a rather thick-headed note. I don’t know enough to make a scientific arguement against it, but … seriously, is it so difficult to see how “feels better” = “do it more”. It certainly works for me with ice cream.
My overhanging stomach agrees with you NS..on the ice cream anyway.
I already ate my bowl of ice cream, but now I want another one. Having to make ginger snaps suffice.
NS, the Bright comment on the one hand was pretty cool. On the other, wtf is she talking about? Sorry I was frustrated? Um, I wasn’t frustrated – I was frakkin’ offended.
Mmm. Ice cream.
Vegas was a great, fun time. I’m still not entirely coherent. I have a dumbass memory to call in. I’m a big dumbass and now I’m paying for it dearly! Ugh.
I can’t even respond to comments. I tried, but the brain — it doesn’t want to function.
Starting coffee IV drip now.
Hey, you reacted better than I would have. I’d have gone “ACK” and cowered behind my own site for several days.
I think you did good at being consistent and polite.
Susie Bright’s comment on your site is pretty respectful, EssBee. She (sort-of) acknowledges her oversight. I think you responded really well. I hope she’s offering her e-mail to further the dialogue, rather than just to appease you with some free episode(s).
But hey, as a special, independent add-on to her deal, I’ll throw in some free Deadpans and Unshows.
My $0.02 generalization: Heavy drugs are dangerous and reckless; therefore, romanticized by people with emotionally-compromised and/or simple-minded perspectives. Drugs are bad, mmmkay.
Never felt the urge to experiment myself with ‘heavy’ drugs.
But can’t help feeling it’s one of those thing you could to regret if you recieve real bad news at the docs.
I agree, Jack.
I think the danger of the concept of “experimenting” with hard drugs is that for some of us, that’s all it takes to ruin a pretty good thing.
Looks like it’s gonna rain this afternoon. I vote for heavily so we don’t have to water!
I think I can honestly say that I’ll never regret the lack of drug use in my life.
New Wander Radio episode..everybody say:
i before e accept after c
Van, you are so cute when you are being grammatical.
CJ, glad you had a good time in Vegas. I have returned from my ancestral homeland visit. Can I have a weekend now?
Yes, in 5 days time.
Night Pan, the ‘wonders’ of food shopping await me in the morning.
Sleep tight, Van!
Star Wars a ceppella song
Morning Pan, something I didn’t need to see on my early morning web browse as I sipped my tea:
Oh and safe Journey to Wander Wolf as he heads into deadpan territory.
I thought it was ‘except’ not ‘accept’? [scratches head] I before E except after C except when it is the other way round.
(blatant attempt to get called cute also.)
So some nice songs in the latest WR, made me pine for a chaptered AAC version of the show so I could go back and listen to some of the tracks again without messing around with the horrible slider control on the iPhone.
One of the first reviews of the Palm Pre:
Didn’t turn on the computer all weekend. It felt kind of nice 😉
NS = cute
I’m downloading WR now. Enjoy Phoenix, Wolf!
I’ll just add that one to the euphemism list TEB.
So a *pffffttt* to Dan’s joke.
Naughty Van. Gutters are for dirty water, not dirty minds 🙂
Funny, I thought human gestation was 10 months, Cj.
sorry, wasn’t 10 months but 9 months.
O’brien marries Keiko (sp?)
Off to work and to brave the heat.
Good luck in avoiding melting, Van.
They had a big thing on our local news on Snus, Cj. I gather it’s like a small teabag full of tobacco. This avoids the ugly spitting. (although it doesn’t stop the ugly, tobacco thing)
They explain why Kirk was sent to a frozen planet in the book and even try to explain the coincidence that Spock was there too.
Oh yeah, CP: LLAP – )just in case you haven’t figured it out already 🙂 )
I liked the last Terminator movie. At least they didn’t wuss out and make a “happy ending”. Have heard this one is just a big video game promo, though.
Oh, Cj. Why has Dan not accepted my “friend” request on FB? No love for the bunny 🙁
Does that make it “vitaka”, Cj? Vodamin?
Pretty smart and funny: “I have no friggin idea how our oil ended up under their sand. But that’s why we gotta spread democracy, cuz democracy, that’s what happens when two wolves and one sheep sit down and vote on who they’ll eat for dinner.”
So month end is really poky because NOBODY IS GIVING ME THE REPORTS I NEED!!!!
sorry, had to get that off my chest.
I think I have an old book report around here somewhere.
Would that help?
Now, about that chest …
I’ll find out about the merits of the latest Terminator on Thursday.
The worst thing about T3 was Arnie..he was too old for the part.
Bleh! I think I’m going to do some laundry while waiting. Them maybe dive into a book.
CR: Steel Remains – Richard Morgan
Interesting letter from Ozzy to Tony:
I needed a dress for a semi formal event I’m attending in two weeks. Instead of spending a couple of hundred dollars on a new one, I dug out the little black cocktail dress I wore at my wedding (yes I wore black at my own wedding, get over it).
It still fits! *doing the happy dance*
Now feeling all nostalgic about my wedding. Must go look at pictures.
Be sure to post some for us, TEB.
I’m trying to change my FB profile picture to one of my wedding pictures but FB is being all ornery about it 🙁
Congratulations on staying trim TEB.
Not sure I can handle seeing TEB’s face…
I can’t say that I’ve ever read the BoyGeniusReport, but he’s being discounted as an Apple Fanboy. Personally, I’m leaning towards the Pre, but I’m holding out to see what Apple says next week about the next Iphone.
Here’s a mini review from a guy who was able to spend some time with one at a Sprint store.
What do you mean you can’t handle seeing my face?!? Should I be insulted? :LOL:
Stupid WP being case sensitive. 😆
Well it be so long with the cat photos…
Cute couple Mr and Mrs TEB.
and now… back to my book.
Sooner or later I’ll actually be able to do some work.
Well O2 won’t let you upgrade until the last month of the contract, so no new phone till 2010..unless I pay the PayAsYouGo price..ouch!

I’ve found FB’s picture uploading deal to be terrible — mostly broken.

Nomad Scry – I’ll second EssBee’s Cute and raise you to “Oh so cute”
I think the sun got to my head this morning. We were at the splash park for a bit and I’m feeling fried. I don’t understand things. It’s month end and my 12 page spreadsheet is giving me the evil eye sooooo I’ll be at my computer for the rest of today as well as I think I have like 3 extra kids I’ll be watching throughout the day. Wheee!
TEB – It always takes me a few posts before I realize that you are talking about LLAP. I’ll pinch Dan when he gets home about FB. He doesn’t use it much so he may not realize.
No son of mine is gonna play any foosball.
But will he play with Fried Banana’s Cj?
Franks & Beans?
The Wolf has landed…in Phoenix.
Yes it is true Wolves don’t like to fly.
I know the repair process…
A wolf with wings?
…back to work.
Free Bird. 😛
CW: Being Erica S1E12
ditto – Wouldn’t that be Free Wolf?
That would be FW not FB. And I thought you were a free wolf. 😉
ditto I usually am.
There’s a genitalia joke in there if you try hard enough.

FB – Fake Bread
(Ha! I bet you thought I was going to stop to posting “breasts”… DOH! There I just did. Fell into my own trap.)
Work is nothing but issues today. First they forgot about me and didn’t run one of the reports I needed. Now I find one of the reports that was run is wrong.
long night for me.
stop = stoop
TEB – Tell them you’ll have those reports for them when Wolves Fly !
I guess that won’t help.
Which means, I want my reports RIGHT NOW!!! 🙂
Actually, I do now have all my reports but, since one is wrong, it has to be rerun.
CP: PCMag After Hours Podcast
Whoever invented spreadsheets was a sadistic son of a female dog 👿
Well, hubby called and is on his way home. Guess I have to pull myself away from the lines of numbers and get supper started.
So new wonder pill made from tomatoes:
Follow the links..35quid for 30 tablets..ouch!
Primates hang free, canines keep it close.
I’ve had a really rough day. Thanks to all of your for making me smile!
Back to the spreadsheets! Yeah?
One step close to Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. . .
OK, off to meet up with WNDR. And running slightly late. Me. Imagine that.
Watch out for the bite of a Wolf with wings, Jack.
Found out I might have to go into the office tomorrow afternoon so they can pick up some of the equipment.
CP: Mirror’s Edge (again)
TEB – if it helps, at least you’re not having to do those spreadsheets by hand.
Computers allow us to make the same old mistakes much faster.
Blame Babbage for wanting to automate logarithm table generation! Stupid Skynet.

I am Wolf
You won’t hear me rowr….
Vanamonde: re: horrible slider control on iPhone: Why didn’t they just program the iPhone so that when you’re playing music, the screen shows an image of the traditional circular iPod control panel that responds in the same way? That would make sense, at least to me.
WNDRWolf, Jack: Have a great time!
Up way too late because I just discovered that Altador Cup IV starts tomorrow over at Neopets! There goes much of my productivity for this month. 😀
Morning Pan, if you bought this for your DSi do you think you would be compensating for something:
Monkey Island coming this summer on Xbox Live:
I’m humming the ST version chip tune as I type..
Strangeness expected….not disappointed.
Beautiful day here in Canadaland
I want! I want! I want!
Star Trek? Really? 😉
I want the TNG series. I’m so much more about the show than the movies.
Yup, we’ll be getting it too, ditto 😉
It’s the complete package, Cj.
I watch the movies much more often than I watch episodes of the series. Besides, a good Blu-ray transfer of I, II, IV, and VI for less than the price of them individually sounds like a win to me.
I thought JACK was the complete package ?!?!
Be warned – reviews of the “blu-ray” version of the original Star Trek movies are rather mixed. As I understand, only Khan was really “restored”.
Honestly, I’d rather just buy Khan on it’s own.
I’m not enough of a ST movie fan to to covet that boxset.
Well, considering that I don’t have any of the previously remastered versions–I bought II, IV, and IV when first released–I still think it will be a great improvement in quality from what I have.
Stupid migraine in my brain. Go away. I am miserable.
And – I am justa JAck. justa J0e is the complete package.
FYI: Send Data” translates to “Data Schicken” in German. Now you know.
Sounds like a make of razor blades.
Sorry – it’s “Daten Schicken”.

Also, I found a great piece of software for $9.95 that takes my audiobook CDs and gets them into an audiobook format for iTunes. For Macs only. It’s called Audiobook Builder. Let me know if you want info on that. Seems to be really awesome and easy for a techtard like me to figure out.
Managed to get in some actual productivity tonight. About to start in on tonight’s Altador Cup gameplay session. (Okay, I promise not to keep talking about this all month. 🙂 )
Wow, that Scott Sigler seems to have figured out a thing or two about this writing business. Listened to the last episode of Contagious today. Hell of an ending.
CW: Serial Experiment Lain
Ed: YES. I finished it today, too. What an emotional rush. I was choked up, pumped full of adrenaline, and frustrated at how far away a sequel is all at the same time.
Good night, mush.
CP: Percussion Gun — White Rabbits
I did enjoy Infection, I should check out Contagious.
We had a pair of Jacks and a pair of Dans at the LLAP house tonight. Good times, good food, bad Star Trek (through no fault of our hosts).
Seems like we’ve had a quiet, steady week around here. I hope everyone is doing well.
Morning Pan, trying to find a company that sells Apple iphone headsets other than Apple.
I like my clicker.
Stopped listening to Sigler after his second book, too many other good things to listen to.
Amy – I finished reading Contagious months ago, so I have a little sympathy for your frustration. But just a little. I’m saving most of it for me.
Vanamonde – What was his second? I started listening to Infection but broke off of it to read Infected and then Contagious. And that’s my complete history with Siggy.
Ancestor I think.
Morning, Deadpan. I wish I was in Phoenix! Jealous!
It has been quiet around here. For my part, it’s been one hell of a week so far. Is it really only Wednesday? Here’s the highlight reel for my Monday:
Ran out of coffee; Dumped a 3/4 cup of day-old mocha all over my car on the way to work;Got a call that my friend/co-workers dad passed away – agreed to cover for him for another week (he’s been out since his dad was put into hospice the previous Monday); Checked my email to find that one of my employees resigned with one week’s notice (her last day is this Friday); was told that a co-worker was outside freaking out with 4 sheriffs surrounding him – went to investigate; Learned that a man, who was an ex-boyfriend of another Evil, Inc. employee, had just shot himself in a car in the parking lot – the freaking out co-worker had witnessed the shooting; Learned that I was in charge of keeping employees in the building as work leaked out, and did so.
It was a long & stressful day. Yesterday was calm in comparison. Today, the sheriff’s office is sending a grief counselor out to the office – I won’t be attending the session – which will no doubt turn the heat back onto the workplace drama.
Tomorrow, we’re having a going away potluck for the employee who is leaving (who, incidentally, I would like to throttle for leaving us in the lurch at the height of our busy season, but . . ).
Working for the weekend. EssBee out.
van – shoot me an email about the tracks you liked.
The sun is shining, birds are singing, I’m stuck at my desk – Blech
Sorry to hear about your week, EssBee
Major suckage EssBee.
Certainly hoping things move up from here.
*Hugs* to EssBee.
Things are indeed going slowly and steadily around here.
*Double-half caf Grande Hugs* to EssBee
You don’t follow my links do you TEB!
Went for a walk. The coyotes were frolicking in the park today.
I usually do, Van. I guess I just missed that one.
Beats feral kitty cats.
Well, off for another walk. First to the drug store, then I think I’ll pick up a donair for lunch
Van, while I personally have never seen them, there has been the occasional cougar sightings at the park (And I mean the cats, not the women 🙂 )
The Coyotes frolicing in the park that is.
That sounds like a perfect storm of awful, EssBee. Hugs, indeed.
Although, I suspect the gangs of drunken teenagers you see in parks these days are a far greater threat than any cougar.
Back form the store. Quick hop in before I eat lunch.
Fish Creek isn’t too bad for kids and the homeless, Van. They tend to patrol it pretty frequently as it is considered a wildlife corridor.
But he doesn’t have the mustache.
Cool. The Golden Voyage of Sinbad is on TV.
You know, I saw The Golden Voyage of Sinbad at the cinema in the 70’s, Tom Baker was a cool bad guy and later a cool Dr Who.
One of the better Sinbad movies…
Of course you didn’t know..errrr but you do now.
Wikipedia is the destroyer of many illusions.
ZP swings into action and reviews Bionic Commander:
There’s a Wolf in my living room!!!!
You need to show him you are pack leader.
I read TEB’s post from this morning as saying “the coyotes were f*cking in the park today” and though TEB?! NO!!! And read it again.
Thanks for all the hugs. Today was indeed better! Though I did again spill something. But I won’t bore you with that. Tonight – sirloin and corn on the grill.
Night Pan, too early for F5 punching.
Van is that a challenge?
(Did you send me that email?)
Mash f5 button
Wow. I let days pass before looking at the pan.
serves me right for having killed my laptop.
It has been resurrected, but at a slight loss. It is now labeled “Jesus Christ: Diminished Star”
So Lejon does that mean you have the power of resurrection?
If so I have a list that I really want to beat the crap out of again…
WNDRWolf: I only have limited restorative powers -limited to my 500gb external hard drive, and an image program called Macrium Reflect. However, my laptop now has infinitely more power compared to the “NTLDR cannot be found” message it had Monday.
Good Night, Pan – I promise I’ll pay more attention the next time I’m hacking a net-book.
Oh what happened to your netbook Lejon?
Oh and sorry Wolf, I’ll listen to the episode again and email you..my memory has more holes than swiss cheese.
