  1. Awwwww, thanks Hunney for the sweet words about us on the show.

    I cant wait to start this new chapter for our fam.


    • Something I’ve never fancied, TV in the bedroom, for me that’s for sleeping and the storage of books I’ll never get round to read..

      • I like the tv in the bedroom when hubby is working late. I usually go there after supper and read, watch tv, listen to podcast, etc.
        Also, last night I wasn’t feeling that hot. It would have been nice to watch the rest of the hockey game in the bedroom. That way, if I fell asleep, hubby wouldn’t be waking me to move to the bedroom. I also think it’s a little different as a couple than as a single, too.

  2. Its supposed to be upwards of 115 degrees here in Phx on Sat — with a 10% chance of rain.

    Really? Rain? Maybe from the clouds it will fall 10 ft, then be obliterated by the surface of the Sun that is apparently crashing into the greater Phoenix area this weekend.

      • Ok so people are freaking out that she cut up some books, which currently you can get for a PENNY on Amazon Marketplace, and decorated a box with them? I guarantee 100% if she wasnt an ex-reality star and just some youtube craft schlub this wouldnt even be “news”. Ugh.

  3. I think I live to frustrate hubby. I was only going to get a 25″ TV but they had a 32″ on sale for the same price as the 25″ so…
    I’ve hooked it up and everything already. We will have to see what hubby says.

  4. Your crap joke for the evening:

    A pastor in Maine skipped services one Sunday to go bear hunting.
    Along the trail he turned a corner and collided with a bear. the pastor stumbled, backwards, slipped off the trail, and began tumbling down the mountain, the bear in hot pursuit. Finally the pastor crashed into a bolder, breaking both his legs and sending his rifle flying through the air, just out of his reach.As the bear closed in, the pastor cried out “Lord, I’m sorry for what I have done. Please forgive me and save me! – Lord please make this bear a Christian”.Suddenly the bear skipped to a halt at the pastor’s feet, fell to it’s knees, clasped it’s paws together, began to weep and said “God bless this food which I am about to receive!”

    • I watched that this morning before work. I think it will be interesting, but am disappointed they changed several book characters. Let me know what you think!

  5. Today’s movie is The Hole
    The DVR write up: in this intense tale, two sur urban brokers find a deep pit in their basement that reveals their worst fears. Now, the terrified boys and a neighbour most face the darkness in the hole.

    Remember, it’s going to be an intense tale

  6. When I was 4 years old my dad had a station wagon with wood paneling. Yeah 1970’s.

    P.S. Will there be any pitching tents in this “Hole” movie?

  7. Summer is a time to catch up on my viewing backlog.

    Watching episode 11 of The Following, Kevin Bacon really is a crap FBI operative in this.

  8. Your crap joke for the day:

    “Fancy some role play tonight?” I asked the wife. “Why don’t you be a prostitute?”

    “Ok,” she giggled, “And what will you be?”

    “Jack the Ripper”

  9. I’m going to a community meeting tonight at the Centro Cristiano Vida Abundante (aka Assembly of God church). If I’m not back in 24 hours, I’ve burst into flames.

  10. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve installed a variation of XBMC on my raspberry pi, tonight was the lastest version of Xbian.


  11. Today will be a strange day. Grade 12 grad ceremony is today. Hubby left the house late, then he will be home for lunch. After a few hours he will be leaving for the grad dinner and dance so won’t be home again until around midnight.
    That makes me hubbied, hubbyless, hubbied, and hubbyless again.

  12. In a great sadness-to-triumph bit of personal news, my always rock-steady daughter was heartbroken yesterday to have fallen just short of advancing to the next level in her ice skating lessons. She didn’t throw a tantrum or anything, she was just really upset.

    Wellll, I got an email today from her teacher stating that she’s chosen to advance my daughter anyway, believing that she’s up for the challenge of the next level. And there was much rejoicing! I can’t wait to tell her the good news. :happy:

      I remember it was home brew, the bottle once held pop
      I remember how it foamed and fizzed as I slowly undid t¹top
      I even can remember the pint pot¹s foaming crown
      And the nice warm glow it gave me as I slowly supped it down
      But what I don¹t remember is how I¹ve ended up in t¹park
      Laid out on a wooden bench and all alone in t¹dark
      And I wish I knew for certain where my shoes have gone
      And what¹s happened to my waistcoat, coz I¹m sure I had one on
      Everything¹s all hazy, my memory just won¹t clear
      I wish I knew for certain just how I¹ve gotten here
      My head pounds like a smithy, my tongue tastes like a mat
      My false teeth itch like measles, and I¹m sure I¹ve ate a cat
      I¹d get up and try and walk it off if only I could stand
      But after trying once or twice and ending up in t¹sand
      I don¹t think as I¹ll bother, for it does no good at all
      What¹s the sense in trying to stand when all you do is fall?
      So if there¹s anybody out there who can help me out this jam
      Can someone please tell me where I live ­ and also who I am?
      For I¹d dearly like to get back home to hang my head in shame
      And find out if there¹s any left ­ then I¹ll have some more of t¹same

  13. So we made a brief appearance at the 2013 Farpoint Pool Party, saw Michael R. Mennenga, Tim Adamec, Yooper, and a few others, played a game called “Do You Worship Cthulhu?”, and didn’t go in the pool. And that’s about there is to the story. It’s always a flood of nostalgia, revisiting Draco Vista Studio.

  14. 🙁 Gaming has been cancelled this evening. The husband of the couple that were coming over got stung by a bee and had an allergic reaction so had to go to emergency. They raise bees for their honey so he’s been stung before but has never had a reaction.
    It’s a good thing hubby decided to set up the game downstairs. Mansions of Madness takes about two hours to set up. By doing it downstairs we don’t have to take the game apart. It can just sit there until we are ready to play again.

  15. Speaking on faces snapping off – my buddy just quipped the best line:

    “Is that Tukka Rask’s face or is he wearing a Randy Travis skin mask?”

    I peed.

  16. CR: The Poinsonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver.

    Im reading this, along with one of my beloved friends — I cannot wait to discuss some theology and get her very conservative, Christian take on this book.

    Ep 288 may happen before I finish this beast of a novel, though.

  17. Then packing to do.

    There has also been an accusation made by a non deadpanite that I find rather laughable but a bit reluctant to say what as it may turn into a Seinfield moment.

  18. I (finally) finished watching Tron: Uprising over lunch. I enjoyed the series. Too bad the ratings were probably poor enough that we won’t get a second season.

  19. A joke that Van would be proud of:

    A man was hospitalized with 6 plastic horses up his ass. The doctor described his condition as stable.

  20. Crap joke from twitter:

    @MicroSFF: “At college, everyone was into cat gifs, like, for lols. Then a guy showed me owls.”
    He started crying.
    “Now, I can’t cope without otters.”

      • The death by bear one makes me both laugh and cry. Going to Banff, you often see wildlife. One time ther was a bear on the side of the road and this oriental couple tourists kept encouraging their kids to get closer and closer to the bear so they could get a picture of them together. Hubby and I both had vision of the headline of two children killed by bears.

  21. I’m rereading Arthur C. Clarke’s excellent book Childhood’s End. It’s interesting to see predictions made in the 1950s. As the society in the book careens towards more and more leisure, he says that across television and radio there are an astounding 500 hours a day of programming broadcast. I love it when they drastically underestimate things like this.

    • “In my opinion, all previous advances in the various lines of invention will appear totally insignificant when compared with those which the present century will witness. I almost wish that I might live my life over again to see the wonders which are at the threshold.” – Charles Duell 1902

  22. For the butch DPers:

    Anyone have advice on the best way to remove dead, dry grass? My entire back yard is dry as a bone, and I want to get the grass/roots out and begin to xeriscape. Am I looking at a shovel and a backache? Or should I water and till?


  23. We learn the near future of pro hockey in Arizona today. The backwater council of spineless politicians and Tea Party shills known as the Glendale City Council convene today to decide the fate on an important component of an entire state’s cultural identity. The NHL has pretty flatly stated that if the council continue the whining and wishy-washy simpering they’ve done for the past 4 years, then league will move the team to someplace with semi-grown-up, semi-sophisticated politicians with concern for their community identity.

    Fingers-crossed, but thus far, these two-bit politicians have given us zero reason to believe in them.

    Worst-case scenario, if we do lose the Coyotes, then I expect we’ll get a solid minor league hockey franchise back within a year or two – – and I assume they’ll play in the downtown Phoenix, not that backwater, 1000-miles-from-civilization, soon-boarded-up Glendale arena. Reasonably priced pro hockey accessible via the light rail? I’m ok with that as consolation.

    As for NHL hockey, we can take a road trip or two each season to catch Avs, Ducks, and Kings games.
