Clunk click every trip.
Shout out to Amy, your Christmas card arrived today, thank you.
For some reason looking at the DP website in mobile Safari pauses music playback.
The DP requires your COMPLETE attention. Thank you.
Compleat complete. 🙂
My 1st gen Nano is already on the way back. Maybe I’ll get another 5 or more years out of it now.
Back to work for the bunny today. Hubby still has a couple of days off. Lucky him.
You already know where I stand on mmmmmmmeetups, Jack.
Hello everyone! I get to be eighth!
now, how did that happen?
You came after 7?
I thought I was just another Henry…
uuuuuhhhhh. I have this thing at work that has to be signed off on before the end of the month. All of my alternate signers are off until Tuesday. All of their superiors are also off. I finally reached someone, one of the VP’s of the company. You don’t know how polite my e-mail was requesting him to do this. It felt strange going so high up to get a such a low level thing done.
Ha! The VP just contacted me saying he won’t be able to get to it until Tuesday also. I’m starting to think I’m the only person working today.
One word: hooky
Unfortunately, month end doesn’t wait for anybody.
I forsee a compny wide memo in your future –
Due to lack of participation, the month of December 2011 will NOT be ending until Tuesday, January 3rd 2012.
I hereby grant The Energizer Bunny temporary signing authority.
Fans of Lykke Li will like these stripped down versions of 3 of her songs.
What about the rest of us?
New Sleigh Bells:
Wow, it sure is. It wouldn’t be Sleigh Bells without your ears bleeding after listening.
Like it tho. Good to see they’re still them.
I’m going to hurry to this place and claim it in the name of Deadpan! Quick, someone sew a flag.
Hubby made lunch today. Now must go back to my spreadsheets. ugh.
Lunch today is looking to be Beefaroni.
Maybe I should resolve to eat better foods in 2012.
Heh. More spam.
Spam, spam, eggs and spam?
If you are wondering where Beefaroni appears on the food pyramid, it has actually been sealed inside it in an attempt to try and protect us.
Why Metroid kicks so much ass:
Ugh, I just did the math to figure out how many years it’s been since I last played Metroid. . .
Simple in its brilliance, really
I have a very strange hubby. He decided to get a Facebook account the other day. He has no friends on it and will refuse any friend requests, even from people he knows. He doesn’t want to be bugged, he just wants to access some things that seem to be on facebook only. (like the behind the scenes stuff for the Hobbit, some stuff from one of the Warhammer podcast he listens to, etc.). I know of at least two of our friends who asked to be his FB friend and he said no. When we saw them in person recently he explained, more or less, what I did. They think he’s funny too.
I “get” him.
I had (I guess I still do) an account because it seemed the best way to keep up with a race car driver I like.
I didn’t do the “friending” thing because I didn’t have time for all the social.
In the end, apparently my driver didn’t either as there were seldom ever any updates.
So I haven’t been to facebook in a loooong time. I’m not sure I can even remember my password to sign on anymore.
BTW – for those who didn’t see my last post on the previous show …
It is the update on the PR guy who thought the World Wide Interwebs should just automatically respect and fear him.
December 28, 2011 at 10:45 pm · Reply
What an steller douche bag!
This is the guy from the yesterday’s email tirade link.
Key quotes from his “I’m sorry” interview –
“I didn’t know who that guy at Penny Arcade was,” he admitted. “If I had known, I would have treated the situation a little better.”
– So … unless you can do something for him, expect to be treated like crap.
“At the end of the day, I’m a human being, and it feels like the entire world was bullying me,”
– Bullying him? Has he gone back and read what he wrote? This is a case of reaping what he hath sown.
“They’ve pretty much ruined me in the past 24 hours,” Christoforo said.
– At the end of it all, it’s still the rest of the world’s fault. “They’ve ruined him”. The only thing he’s sorry for is that it came back to bite him. He takes no real responsibility for creating this mess … and he claims to be a PR guy.
BTW, some enterprising web denizen has already found (and posted a link to) the police record of the domestic violence charge against him. Not that hard to believe if you read his e-mail responses.”
Well, I’ve caught up to December 22nd. I think the rest will have to wait until tomorrow.
Van, re: Christmas card shoutout above: You’re welcome!
Cj, re: Secret Santa present: You’re welcome! I’m glad you like it! It didn’t leak in the shipping box, did it?
Bunny: Thank you for my Secret Santa present! I’m planning on enjoying my hot cocoa tonight. 🙂
Next year, I swear, I’ll make it to Santahood, come tropical climates or bong water.
Yeah… that… is… actually… what… I… Meant… to… say…
I can’t handle the higher order math required to determine how long it’s been since I played Metroid…
Hope nobody already shared this – most specifically for :jack: this one.
Ever want to play a game because of the music?
I used to play Tony Hawk’s skating games just for the music.
Oh wait, that wasn’t a video game.
I think I owe Jack a hundred dollars. Jack will you take my money?
Jack, we just looked at the awkward family photos – LOL!
“I can see your pad.””
CE: Spam, egg, sausage and Spam, without the Spam in it. :biggrin: Sausage omelettes are yummy. :happy:
Avs vs. Yotes. Excellent game.
Pretty sure I;m a closet Jets fan. (Winnipeg, Jack)
The epic battle for 11th place in the West.
TO be fair tho theyre only 1 and 2 points out of a playoff spot respectively
The interesting thing about being right all the time: Nothing. Not one thing. Being right all the time is boring. Fortunately for me, I am not afflicted with that malady.
CD: Hot cocoa, made from the cocoa mix and using the mug that were part of my Deadpan Secret Santa present this year. Thanks again, Bunny! :happy:
Evander Kane is the greatest player in hockey at the moment. That is all.
Gabriel Landeskog is the hardest working man in hockey at the moment. That is all.
I heard the Colorado announcers soiling themselves over that guy too. . .
Lest I come across as too grumpy… I actually kinda liked the Avs’ TV announcers. Their enthusiasm was infectious without being grating.
Yeah theyre quite the homers. But to (kinda) be fair, theyve been announcing Avs games on TV/Radio in one form or another since 1995.
Nice find, Lejon.
Skyrim is certainly bringing out the inspiration on Youtube:
Of course, it is also inspiring some other diversions
The name of our album?
Well, if “99 Luftballoons” could catch on, then why not.
O M G
TEB, your Xmas card arrived today, thank you.
You only got it now? I sent it in the first week of December. Stupid post.
Wow! I sent all my cards somewhere between the 12th and the 22nd. How did my card from California get there faster than Bunny’s card from Alberta, which was sent earlier? Weird. :silly:
Wow, Cointreau is expensive for 500ml
Good morning, :panties:
I’m 45 minutes away from finishing BSG during my morning workouts. I guess it was a 2011 thing! I really do not remember these last several episodes at all, and I’m really enjoying them.
For 2012: LOST. At least for the first several months. 42 minutes a day x 5 days a week, carry the # of episodes = I dunno how long it’ll take.
CW: The Thing before going to Evil, which has been especially evil of late.
Kissies, all y’all.
back to spreadsheets. *sigh*
Any chance of a new round of Earbuds occurring? I’d be up for it…
And we’re heading out for a quick overnight trip to San Antonio. My son hasn’t seen the lights on the river before and it seems we’re never able to make it. They keeps the lights up until New Year’s, so we’re taking advantage.
Be Deadpan to each other.
1) today’s Groupon is for singing Justin Bieber toothbrushes (53% off).
2) don’t mess with Firefly: http://youtu.be/4iAOtkpFGhc
What do you think youre getting for your B-Day!?!?!?!?!
JB, I’d love to rally another Earbuds session for 2012.
I’m in on Earbuds again!
Certainly preferable to nostrilbuds.
Make sure you get rid of those hairs.
Ignoring the peanut gallery, I too am up for a new earbuds.
That goes without saying. 🙂
Personal stats for the year:
Books read: 40
Graphic novels read: 28
Movies watched: 45
TV series watched: 49 (mostly anime)
Games played: 7
Songs listened to: 13871
Wow. Even I don’t keep track of all that stuff for me. I’m impressed
It started due to a bad fit of depression a long time ago. I felt like I wasn’t accomplishing anything, so I decided to track some of this stuff. In a way, it makes it fun to look back on the year.
BTW, the number of songs is easy to track. iTunes gives that to you for free.
So your songs value is really 13871 + n, where n = every song heard in public restaurants, stores, elevators, friends’ cars and homes, etc., plus anything heard on commercial radio, television, internet, passing cars *thud*
Yeah, I don’t count those. I’m anal, but I’m not Raymond. 😉
But everybody loves…wait
Finally got work caught up to today. Now I can start on month end. And I have to work on Sunday. ugh.
Impressive list, ditto! I’d have to go through my blog to count up books read, and I think I have you beat on TV series, or at least tied.
Anyone have any BEST OF 2011 picks for music/movies/TV/books?
I keep meaning to do those, but I always seem to run out of time. Maybe I’ll force myself to get it done this year.
I was curious about that myself.
I’d love to here what the “best new to you” thing was that all of you found this year. In any and all categories. Maybe it was a best new beer or best new band or song, maybe the best new to you book.
The book count covers all genres, since I read tech books, non-fiction, as well as novels. The only reason I split out graphic novels–this is the first year for that–is that it I felt it threw the number out of whack.
Books: (most of the books I read in 2011 weren’t published in 2011, but this is my favorites among 2011 books) Area 51 – Ann ____ LA Times writer, Malcolm X bio – Manning Marable, The Sacred Band – David Anthony Durham, Dance with Dragons – GRRM
Albums: Wild Flag
TV Series: Homeland, Treme, Nurse Jackie, The Killing (U.S. and Danish!), The Good Wife
I’m sure I’m forgetting lots . . .
2011 is a blur.
The best album of the year was Devin Townsend Project’s “Deconstruction”. Brilliant, although heavier than most would find tolerable.
I did a few TV series this year, but The Wire was my favorite.
Best movie… The Killing Fields.
Best book I read in 2011: The Grapes of Wrath. Steinbeck.
I only read one book this year, “Crescent” by Phil Rossi, so I guess it has to be my favorite.
I’ll have to think about the others.
I always have a hard time ranking music: it depends a great deal on how I feel at the moment. Books are much easier to rank.
Nuclear weapons are NOT New Years fireworks!
I have to admit that I’m desperately going to enjoy the next four days of nobody calling me a douchebag.
Seriously… those are small bags filled with warm water.
I’m a large bag filled with love.
how do they not see the difference?
Is this due to the Go Daddy/SOPA mess?
People are calling you, personally, that? That sucks. 🙁 Do you work in customer service?
And yes, we should do another round of Earbuds! I’m in! 🙂
Carrie Brownstein starter kit:
Well back from seeing the US version of ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’, much better than I was expecting, and the ending explained Lisbeth’s relationship with the Journalist better than the swedish film.
Haven’t read many book this years, so would have to say ‘Infidel’ by Kameron Hurley, even if it was rather flawed.
Music, nothing new all old.
Much better than we expected too!
We had to laugh that Daniel Craig said he really let himself go (eating what he liked and not working out) for the film.
I do wish Hollywood would move on from fat people being sexual deviants though.
I’d say my 3 favorite albums from this year, in no particular order, are:
Wild Flag’s debut album
The Joy Formidable’s “The Big Roar”
Florence + The Machine’s “Ceremonials”
Special mention has to go to Bio-Digital Jazz’s Tron Legacy remixes, in particular the Bio-Digital Jazz Edition released in March. I haven’t listened to the new one released earlier this month.
Special mention also has to go to Valve and their Aperture Science Psychoacoustics Laboratory for releasing 3 volumes! of the Portal 2 soundtrack for free.
And my favorite older album added this year is Lykke Li’s “Wounded Rhymes” released last year.
Finally kudos to Lo Pan for properly introducing me to Tegan & Sara. I still have to properly explore their collection.
Biggest musical disappointment: Death Cab for Cutie’s “Codes And Keys”. I was seriously underwhelmed.
Well, supper has been eaten and the dishes have been washed.
Now going to crack open a Tempt 12 cider and then fight some elder god minon in the “Savage Worlds”
I think my favourite book I read this year was Hellhole by Kevin J Anderson and Brien Herbert. Although Reamde by Neal Stephenson came a close second
Music..hmmm. I don’t think I have a favourite song. Same with movies. I have trouble remembering what I saw earlier in the year and am too lazy to go back, either in my mind or physically, to figure it out
Today’s news has a story about some lady who makes sweaters for chickens. I might put this near the top on strange stories I’ve heard this year
Here’s the link. http://swo.ctv.ca/servlet/an/local/CTVNews/20111230/chicken-winter-sweaters-guelph-111230/20111230/?hub=SWOHome
I’m waiting for a story about a woman who makes sweaters OUT of chickens. LIVE ones.
My Favorite book this year was a tie between Suzanne Collins’s “The Hunger Games” trilogy, and Mira Grant’s “Deadline”, the sequel to “Feed”.
Probably my least favorite book was “How To Live Safely In A Science Fictional Universe” by Charles Yu.
As for Anime, it was a great year. The best were “Gosick”, “Ano Hana”, “Steins; Gate”, “Usagi Drop”, “Madoka Magica”, “Working!!”, and “Chihayafuru”.
Avoid “Dragon Crisis” and “Level E”.
Fuck I miss Gosick
I do too. I’ll probably buy it when it becomes available.
Happy New Year Deadpan!!
Hope 2012 is good to everyone 🙂
ooo, favorite books and music of the last year? I’ll play. I need to think about it..
Favorite books from the past year
I also loved Hunger games
I read Conn Iggulden’s Genghis Khan series which was excellent
Justin Cronin The Passage
The latest Harry Dresden – Ghost Story was really good
I discovered Ken Follett as an author, really loved Jackdaws, Pillars of the Earth
There was a good historical fiction series about Rome by Steven Saylor i really enjoyed too
Just finished reading Steve Jobs biography and loved it
Favorite Albums from the past year:
Project Pitchfork – Quantum Mechanics
Ohgr – Undeveloped
Massive Attack – Heliogoland
The Kills – Bloodpressure
PJ Harvey – Let England Shake
Twilight Singers – Dynamite Steps
So, playing a Cthulhu RPGs with hubby and a spider comes down from the ceiling and lands on my face. For real! Put a damper on the game
Go Calgary Puck Bunnies!!!! You can doooo eeeeett!!!
I’m happy wit second or third from the bottom. Better than dead last anyway *shrug*
Yeah but fifth place gets a trophy too 🙂
More on that later…..
Think I’m just a little too far back to think fifth at the moment
My dice case is cracked. I think it happened when it was used to squish a spider
TV for the year –
I think “American Horror Story” became my favorite “new” show.
“30 Rock” continued to make me laugh out loud at least once every episode so maybe it should be my favorite.
Reaper: Thanks for posting the link to the “Do you own too many guitars?” flowchart on the last show. I sent the link to my dad, who is also a guitar enthusiast, and he laughed out loud. 🙂
I guess, of the “new” shows that started this year Grimm is one of my favourites
I hope the “Deadpan Secretary” is collecting all these favorites in a chart.
No Deadpan Secretary!?!
We need to bring this up with the Board immediately.
No Deadpan Board!!!!
Hey, I keep track of monthly comment stats. That’s as far as I go
I think I’m too scared to argue.
Ziggy Stardust has sparkled for many years.
Oh, he’s just imitating Lady Gaga.
You’re face to face with the man who sold the world.
Booze acquired to see in the new year (Bailey’s).
A very picky friend has bought a single malt to see in the new year.
..and and old crate of Stella Artois for a less discerning friend.
Crap joke alert (spotted by NS on twitter):
Why did Bilbo resist the power of the one ring for so long?
Because old hobbits are hard to break.
I’d go with the picky friend’s pick if given the choice . . .
Weird friend requests are weird.
So let’s see,
been thinking about new music and the only new ones I can recall are Nikki Yanofsky’s self tittled CD (young Canadian, jazz singer phenom), Jamie Cullum’s “Pointless Nastalgic” (jazz/coffee house singer)and The Vocal Majority’s “12 Days of Christmas” (Barbershop Chorus).
The two singers were “okay”.
The Barbershop group is amazing! The tightness of their singing is remarkable.
In the “not new to me” department,
I got the new TMBG Album “Join Us”. I was underwhelmed.
I also picked up The Bare Naked Ladies “Snack Time” which is silly, fun and frequently makes me laugh.
Let’s hope it is not not instead of just not.
The Hunger Games shoulda been on my list too – loved it.
Just for Lo. She doesn’t have green eyes, but… 😉
I looked, even though it wasn’t for me. How old is that girl!?
Don’t answer that.
Geek readings have just gone off the scale, Captain.
Yeah, I think Abbott and Costello are going to come back from the grave and shove those guys into their lockers.
What are you all doing for New Years’ Eve? I know Van’s drinking Bailey’s, but what else?
We’re watching the UK Prime Suspect – we started Series 1 last night and are enjoying it so far! We love the US version lots.
Just hanging around.
Maybe work a jigsaw puzzle. Probably drink something.
Make some noise at midnight.
I’m working on this jigsaw right now:
We’re going to watch Tucker and Dave vs. Evil tonight. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1465522/
Order in something for dinner. I’ll probably be in bed by ten. I’m not much of a late night gal.
However, as the day job runs in Ontario time, I can always say it’s midnight when I go to bed at ten and still be partially true
We’re back from our whirlwind trip. Heading out to my Sister-in-laws for their traditional New Year’s Eve party. You know we’re getting old when it’s all our kids jumping about in the hot tub and us adults are hanging out inside. 🙂 I’ll probably play some Texas Hold’em tonight and lose a few bucks to some kinfolk.
Best of 2011?
Well, looking at my music rotation, I’ll have to go with the Tron remixes. The official “Reconfigured” one has grown on me quite a bit, though there are a few tracks that are absolutely unlistenable. The unnofical “Bio-Digital Jazz” and “Perfect System” editions have also been competing heavily with audiobooks for my drive time listening. Sounds like there may even be another that I need to check out.
Books – Haven’t gotten around to The Hunger Games yet, so that may have to wait for my best of 2012 list. When my left wing and right wings friends agree on a book series, that is to strong a recommendation to ignore.
As for what I did read/listen to – I have to give high marks to the first two Hyperion books, which were new to me. The two Endymion books didn’t follow through on the promise and I didn’t care much for all the retconning. Despite it bogging down some in the middle, I found “Keynes Hayek” and fascinating read. Considering it was about the life and influence of a pair of economists in the 20th century, it made for a compelling narrative and provided me with a lot of insight into why both left and right oriented economists think the way they do. Looking back on my audible history, I see this was also the year of plowing through all of GRR Martin. I can recommend the first book without qualification. I wasn’t as keen on the latest two where he split the story up to cover the same timeline in both books with the different groups of characters.
TV and Movies? Not a lot sticks out in my head, though things like “Dark Matters” and “How it’s Made” on the Science Channel have been one’s I’ve enjoyed. Punkin Chunkin was again a hit this year in the from Texas household.
I’ve also got to give the big endorsement for Skyrim. While they are very different types of fantasy games, I do think Skyrim delivered far better than Dragon Age 2 did for 2011.
Though, I’ve read that Bioware indicates that they are learning some lessons from Skyrim that they will apply for Dragon Age 3. Honesty, with Bioware’s exceptional story telling and character building crossed with Bethesda’s massive world building could result in the kind of perfection in gaming that might signal that we’re ready for the end of the world as there’s just nothing more to be done 🙂
Well Pan it’s just gone midnight, so Happy New Year and that all stuff.
Happy new year Van. *kiss*
Happy GMT New Year, Vanamonde!
So we just hears about, and started watching on Netflix a tv show called Leverage. Only seen two episodes so far but we both are liking it
I watched Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame in sections while taking breaks. Pretty strange, fun movie, if you can get past the 2 scenes with the talking deer.
Auld Lang Syne. m/ !!!
Happy New Year, Van!
The Nerdist guys LOVE Skyrim.
I have 150 hours into Skyrim. Nah, I don’t like it at all. Nope. Uh uh. Nada. Nay. Etc.
The Nerdist TV special made the same crack I did about getting Skyrimmed…
This bunny has to word tomorrow 🙁
Word = work
I’m not sure if it’s the iPad or the cider to blame this time
I think my cider might be just a little strong. Feeling the buzz
CD: cloudy scrumpy cider. This one has a bit of a kick to it
CE: sweet chili heat Doritos
I need to get some food in me to offset the cider buzz
Hello Vanamonde! …. come in Vanamonde!
Can you hear us? … How is the future? … can you tell us what next year is like? … come in Vanamonde …
I’m afraid I can’t reach him.
Perhaps the world DOES end in 2012.
We went to a party and left early because my wife wasn’t feeling well. Now I will watch Akira with my daughter until midnight rolls around. Oh, and I’m drinking champagne tonight.
My hubby is being silly. He’s watching an episode of the old original Battle Star Galactica
Well I’m at approximately T minus 30 minutes to midnight here in Oklahoma. As I text the lovely CJ, and help my little sister clean her room.
To end he year I’m drinking Ommegang’s Adoration their special edition Winter Ale, a delicious beer. The yeast is more understated than normal for belgian beers, allowing the cherries to shine in the front for both the aroma and flavor. Sweet caramel and slightly burnt sugar augments the cherry with a slight bitterness from hops to cleanse the palate.
As for my new year beer, that you’ll have to wait a bit for. 😀
Welcome to 2012. Please keep your hands and arms inside the vehicle at all times.
*throws hands in the air*
You just dont care…
I’m having a really fun New Year’s Eve. I went to a Saturday evening church service, for which everyone was encouraged to dress up a little because we had our own New Year’s Eve party afterward (even though it was only about 6:00 PM). I drank champagne. After we got all the party food and drinks cleaned up and put away, I came home and had dinner with my parents, then we went out to our city’s New Year’s Eve celebration. It was better than ever! Here in Temecula, we drop a big bunch of grapes during our countdown to the New Year (because we live in wine country). This year, they dropped them from the top of City Hall (instead of just using a freestanding crane), and had a big “2012” on the front of City Hall that lit up at the end of the countdown. We were there for the East Coast countdown – they always do one countdown at midnight East Coast time (9 PM our time) for families with kids and others who don’t want to stay out that late, and a second countdown at midnight our time. The City also pipes party music over the Old-Town-wide sound system, has an ice skating rink set up, and has live music in outdoor areas. We got to listen to a live swing band before the countdown and watch people dance. We had a lot of fun. 🙂
Going home now – have to work on some recordings-for-hire. I will probably stay up until midnight doing that. Happy New Year, Deadpan! 🙂
That sounds pretty neat Amy!
It was! :happy:
Good night :ugh, up too late:
Happy AZ Time New Year!
I’m hoping for many good things this year.
Good morning, Pan. Come one, come all to the first last and only 2012! This offer available for a limited time only! Once it’s gone, it’s gone! You can checkout any time you like, but you can never leave.
Good morning, and happy 2012!
So Akira was pretty damn good. We had a hard time understanding the ending, but I think the plot summary on Wikipedia cleared it up for me. Definitely a good way to bring in the year.
Good movie. It can be hard to understand, since it is highly condensed from something like 6 huge volumes of work.
I couldn’t help but chuckle at the name because long ago I saw the movie Tetsuo The Iron Man. Now THAT was a hard to understand movie. Not like Tampopo. That was pretty easy.
Happy New Year!
Happy New Year Pan!
I get to spend the day looking at big numbers in little boxes.

CP: I Still Have That Other Girl – Paul Gilbert
Well, I’ve done as much spreadsheet work as I can do for the day. Will have to be back on it tomorrow though, even if it is technically a a holiday here in Canadaland.
Still… so much… more… to be done.
It’s like a mine of clutter.
And I think the canary is dead.
Goin’ down down
For non facebookers, Jack in his younger days it seems:
I believe I was sexy and 17 in that photo. Egads.
They only want you when youre 17. When youre 21 youre no fun
Dexter season 6 finished. I think I agree to an extent with Van with a semi-underwhelmed feeling. Save for the last 20 seconds or so. That made the year for me.
It is too late to get a hearty “fuck 2011”?
Nope. Add my hearty “Hear! Hear!” to your declaration. 🙂
While I can’t join your cause this year, I’ll give you a sympathy fuck for your troubles.
What are you going to do?!
Please allow me to introduce myself,
I’m Lo Pan of wealth and taste.
I’m with Ed. 2011 wasn’t that bad for me. I found a doctor that didn’t try to convince me I was either crazy or dying. I was able to travel again and even go to Arizona to visit my Goddess, Jack, Rhett, Dan S. Michelle and any other Arizonians I may have forgotten.
All in all, my 2011 was much better than 2010
Minus the wealth and taste…. woo woo
I’m almost certain he’s not serious.
So, the first day of 2012 was half-immersed in packing hell, half-spent with good people and incredible food. In addition to the usuals, Paul Fischer and Martha Holloway (of Balticon fame) plus their ERF were in town.
Apparently, they refer to the Balticon I attended 4 years ago as “Jack’s Balticon”. I don’t know if I should be proud or perturbed by this news.
Goodnight :ancient history:
Romans 1 Christian 0
Well, if it helps, I first read that as “Jack Burton”. You haven’t started driving a Semi, have you?
Ah work, how I never miss you.

It actually drives hubby nuts when I play music this way. I, obviously, like to take all the music in my i-tunes and hit shuffle. He’d rather pick a genre and play it. He can’t handle the music whiplash. :silly:

Ok, I actually have to do some thinking for work today. Still playing music but won’t be listing my playlist for a bit.
Today is day 1 of 2 on the big move, so I won’t be on much!
At least there’s a good reason behind this chaos.
good luck with the move Jack.
Happy fo ya!!!
Good luck this week El Toronado! May your Boyle be blessed.
(dont forget to set your lineup for today!)
Speaking of, I’m shocked that the Sack Exchange pulled out the come-from-behind win last week!
Anyway, looks like the Winter Classic will be online today:
Enjoying the ability to swap camera angles online.
Klecko, Gasteneau, and that one guy, and that other guy, would be proud.
What a classic. Not a fan of either team but OW thats good hockey!
Just watched the first episode of the second series of Sherlock.
I enjoyed it, a snobbish fan less so
For the Darth Hipster in all of us:

It need to have the mask with the hood to be truly awesome. Kinda like this one:
I’ve decided my hubby is a typical man. He got a wedding invitation the other day from one of his co-workers for a wedding in early April. This will be a fully traditional Ismaili wedding. So when I saw the invite I asked, a) what kind of wear will be expected of the guests (being a traditional wedding, I wanted to make sure we didn’t wear a colour and garb that would be out of place); and b) are they registered anywhere? my hubby just shrugs his shoulders. I then ask him to ask since he sees her just about every day and I’m lucky if I see her once a month. Still nothing. I may have to go over his head and contact the bride myself since hubby is being way too male about the whole thing.
Do him a favor … contact her yourself.
The typical guy won’t know what things to ask. Besides, shortening the communication trail helps avoid miscommunication. 🙂
You’re absolutely right J0e. I was just hoping to save a step. Sometimes men are just… men. But I love them anyway :heart:

Saw a lot of movies over the holiday, two at the cinema and the rest on DVD.
I really enjoyed the new Sherlock Holmes, less so the new Mission Impossible, but it was entertaining. Limitless was a pleasant surprise, watched that one with the folks who also really liked it.
Rounding out the rest:
XMEN First Class
Rise of the Planet of the Apes
the J.J. Abrams Star Trek
Harry Potter – Deathly Hollows Part 2
Please remember that the lesser speckled Goth is almost extinct.
We saw the new Conan over the holidays. The man and child who played Conan in his various incarnations were good. The story itself was flawed.
We saw that over Thanksgiving and thought it was so bad.

Since I’m obviously not going to get any work done, I’m off to the store.
Why is nobody in today? I’ve made three different calls to three different places and haven’t got a person once. What’s even stranger is, on two of them, I didn’t even get a machine. The phone just rang and rang. I wish I could skip work today too.
I’m in Scotland this week and the drunk kilt wearers are having an extra bank holiday.
Because of New Year and not my arrival.
Now I wish I was in Scotland…
Finally got through to one of my contacts. Now if I can just get hold of the other two…
My new Photoshop-like program (Pixelmator) has quit working. Seems maybe it was never meant to be used with the new Mac OS. Which doesn’t explain why it worked BEAUTIFULLY for a week.
I guess I will be the old timer that sits in the back of the coffee shop saying “I remember when Macintoshes used to work… now a days? We’re all goin to hell!!!”
May I interest you in The Gimp? No skin lubrication or hose spraying required. Plus, it’s free.
Apparently we’re going to have record setting warmth tomorrow. I’m not complaining
I would demand my money back from Mr Winter.

I bought an egg poacher.
Next I will buy a steering wheel cover.
This is the one I’m replacing: http://x.co/cGc9
Thankfully Ralph was able to get it off my wheel. It was cutting up my hands after many years of use. It had started cracking and coming undone so to speak.
“It had started cracking and coming undone”
I can say that about some people I know too :cheerful:
Me too, Bunny… me too!
“And proud of it!”
I have not turned my music on at all today. I think I will pop open a can of soda and correct this.
Dan Carcillo is a goddamn sonofabitch
Bog sky IPA is pretty good
Youre damn right!!!!!
Like me most Big Sky brews
So this place is amazing… and a five minute walk away
4 Belgian Beers on tap and 12 by the bottle. Lord god…
That’s the place!! Wanna go!!
Lord come down!!! The both of yas!
Excellent evening. Walked to Manneken Fritas and got some fries to go, then went next door to the Arvada Brewing Company where they not only have choice delicious brews for the adults, but crafted root beer and a wide selection of board games for the kids. My better better half and I enjoyed 5 of their 8 brews while battling the kids at Candyland, Guess Who, and Hangman.
We dont often get nice, strife free nites like this, so twas quite a blessing.
Now listening to “Oh No! Its Devo!.” So good.
Nice! Do you wanna hack my FB account and watch the BSG Portlandia episode? Text me if ya do.
Inertia has a lot going for it.

Oh good lord.
He’s got nothing to do with it.
Can I quote you on that?
Lets go get a beer.
Not impressed with the Hydro 3 razor, doesn’t give a very close shave
Lemme see. *feels Vanamonde’s cheek*
You’re right, I prefer your other razor. 😆
Subject line of my spam mail: 2nd notice again!
If it’s “second notice again” doesn’t that make it third notice? If you’re going to spam me, at least make sure you can write right.
It’s suppose to reach 14C (57F) today. It’s actually been a lovely winter so far.
This is neat:

I’m really liking Fucked Up’s new stuff.
I only have one of their songs, which I rated 2 stars, and haven’t played since 7/10/2008 at 2:42 PM. (iTunes is good for some things)
There’s too much screaming in the old stuff. The new album is a little different.
I have 29 tracks on my iPod containing the word “bone”.
167 containing “qu”.
7 containing “battle”.
95 containing “fun” (80 of those are for tracks with the word “funk”).
41 containing “bone”
254 containing “qu”
38 containing “battle”
45 containing “fun”
6 containing “funk”
Oddly, I have no songs titled “Battle Bone Fun Funk !”
Our band needs to correct this deficit.
We’d need to add “Platypus” if it were to also become the band name.
Every gig would be sold out for “Battle Bone Fun Funk Platypus”.
17 songs containing “Bone”
102 containing “qu”
4 containing “battle”
18 containing the word “fun”
105 containing “song”
I don’t have iTunes on my computer.
“After a poor showing in Tuesday night’s Iowa caucus, Michele Bachmann announced that she will be ending her campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.
Following her announcement she unhinged her lower jaw and ate 3 of her volunteer staff members.”

Now the next question is what conspiracy theory will Newt have to flog to get the anti-vaccination vote?
It prevents throat cancer in gay men!
Wait, that’s true . . .
I got my property tax assessment today. The city says my house is worth $30,000 than it was last year. Since I’m not planning to sell in the near future, I guess I can call it a win as my property taxes are now going to be a tiny bit less.
Now… Time to clean the space under the stairs so hubby can more readily reach his guitar cases *grumble, grumble*
Clearly, what you need is THIS!

er… new to me…
Well, I’ve only been under the stairs a half hour and I already foresee a… discussion hubby and I will be having.
I found. pretty much, all our VHS tapes. We haven’t had a VHS player in years so have no way of watching these. The issue I foresee is, this collection includes the entire Original Star Trek and Next Gen Star Trek series. Yes we have the enhanced versions in both DVD and Blu Ray (for the original series anyway) but, knowing hubby, that won’t matter. We also have the complete Monkees TV series. How do I tell him we need to get rid of these?
*Big Eyes (you know like the Puss in Boots eyes from the movie) *
I too have the “WTF do I do with these VHS tapes I have so carefully hung onto!”
Not to mention the 1″, 3/4 and Betacam *rolls eyes*
Seems like I have a box of VHS tapes in my attic. Probably need to donate them to my local landfill.
Hey, I think I’m being generous. I’m going to let him keep the laser discs. That’s only because we still have a player, even if we haven’t touched it for years
Too bad, Bunny! I actually just donated a VHS player to the local Goodwill. It could have been yours to take home from the next MMMmmmeetup.
Umm, no. I want to get rid if stuff not have a reason to keep it
I think I could find you an old VHS player Bunny. One of those big, solid, top-loading machines.

And for those of you who don’t read my Facebook (and why don’t you? I’m very interesting) here’s my lunch report:
http://www.coalburger.com/ is where we went and I had the BBQ Burger – Chipotle bbq sauce, cole slaw, and cheddar cheese on a 1/3 lb burger cooked very very rare. It was actually rare enough for even me! And! Sweet potato fries!
It’s important to note that I’m trying to keep my protein intake at or over 60g per day for health reasons. Yesterday I maxed out at 72 (first day) today I’m already at 42 thanks to my delicious and overpriced burger. The boss paid, and I appreciate it 🙂
Yum! Except for the rare part for me.
Phoenix has become just lousy with gourmet burger joints (meaning they’re everywhere). That’s a lot of sweet potato fries.
I’d never even heard of Coal Burger.
Oh my, those blueberry shakes look yummy.

Wet and windy, but the company is nice.
That’s all that matters, Van! Enjoy yourself.
Have you kilt anyone yet?
Dont. Dont you do that. Dont you ever do that again. NEIN NEIN NEIN NEIN NEIN!
So I’ve been at work all day wearing this button down black shirt, and I only just now spotted the fake mustache stuck to the sleeve, around the interior elbow.
My life is weird.
*leans over and whispers quietly to Jack*
that’s not what “moustache ride” means.

And a new day has come…..It’s a trap!
Took the kids to see Hugo.
Sarah loved it, I loved it… Fletcher is still 6 years old. It’s really long for a kid that age to sit through. I’d like to play back a conversation had during the movie. (Disclaimer: If I did text during the movie, I kept my phone all the way down inside my blouse so as not to disturb other patrons with the light.)
Scene: Watching movie.
Fletcher: Mommy, I have to poo.
Me: Right now? Can you hold it?
Fletcher: I don’t know. Is it almost over.
Me text to LostRalph: How long is this movie?
LostRalph: That bad huh? 2 hours 6 minutes
Me: It’s good. Fletcher has to poo.
LostRalph: Oh, bad timing.
Me: Fletcher, do you want to go to the bathroom? There is almost an hour left.
Fletcher: No. I can hold it.
Fletcher then lies down and goes to sleep.
