  1. Thanks, Jack. I got caught up in other stuff and didn’t get around to recording anything. I do have a DotF essay partially written, and will get it recorded befpre next week.

  2. Your crap joke for the day:

    Arthur is 90 years old. He’s played golf every day since his retirement 25 years ago. One day he arrives home looking downcast. “That’s it,” he tells his wife. “I’m giving up golf. My eyesight has become so bad that once I hit the ball I couldn’t see where it went.”His wife sympathises and makes him a cup of tea. As they sit down she says, “Why don’t you take my brother with you and give it one more try.””That’s no good” sighs Arthur, “your brother’s a hundred and three. He can’t help.””He may be a hundred and three”, says the wife, “but his eyesight is perfect.”So the next day Arthur heads off to the golf course with his brother-in-law. He tees up, takes a mighty swing and squints down the fairway.He turns to the brother-in-law and says, “Did you see the ball?””Of course I did!” replied the brother-in-law. “I have perfect eyesight”.”Where did it go?” says Arthur.”I don’t remember.”…

  3. We are down to the last few days of collecting donations before Sausagefest and thus being eligible for perks.

    Our goal each year is to collect $1500 in donations to fund the event so that all money collected the night of the event will go directly to the charity (plus anything we make over $1500 ahead of time) We are currently at $1605 before the event and I’m about to announce stretch goals. With money that has been assured to me will be donated, I KNOW that we will be well over $2000 before the event. Thanks to you guys for donating and for listening to me blather on about Sausagefest.

    There is still time to give, if you are so inclined.


    And if ANYONE happens to be near St. Louis this Saturday night come to Archon and come to Sausagefest.

  4. Your bonus crap joke:

    I went for a testicle check up last wk. The little Thai nurse cupped my balls & said,”Don’t worry, it’s quite normal to get an erection during this procedure” I said “I haven’t got an erection” She said “No, but I have”

  5. Ok, that was just weird. I had a peace officer come to my door looking for payment on my cat license. Mine was paid but I’ll have to talk to my Boo about hers. I don’t like having officers come to my door. Also, it seems like a waste for them to come for only $30

  6. Foserious, would anyone else like an extension on DotF BRwCD (see justaJ0e’s request above)? I’m willing to delay for a week or 2, if it means we’ll get more good stuff from you.

  7. Well, I just finished editing a 20 minute video for my direct sales business. I am debating putting it out there on YouTube.

    My intent is to use it for Home Parties as a continuous loop, but if I place it out on the interwebs, maybe it draws more business to me?

    or just the creep-Os? ….

  8. Your crap joke for the day:

    A couple had been married for 50 years.They were sitting at the breakfast table one morning when the old gentleman said to his wife, “Just think, honey, we’ve been married for 50 years.””Yeah,” she replied, “Just think, fifty years ago we were sitting here at this breakfast table together.””I know,” the old man said, “We were probably sitting here naked as jaybirds fifty years ago.””Well,” Granny snickered, “What do you say…should we get naked?”Where upon the two stripped to the buff and sat down at the table.”You know, honey,” the little old lady breathlessly replied, “My breasts are as hot for you today as they were fifty years ago.””I wouldn’t be surprised,” replied Gramps. “One’s in your coffee and the other is in your oatmeal!

  9. If some kid has found my iPod and has decided to keep it, they are going to be VERY disappointed.
    No phone. Can’t load the latest iOS so they won’t be able to load any new apps. In fact, they probably won’t be clever enough to check that out ahead of time so they will try to update the apps I do have .. the result is that they will have NO apps.

    If it is in someone else’s hands it is destine for the trash heap.

  10. CP: A Mistake — Fiona Apple

    Today’s playlist will be brought to you by Pandora shuffle of: Tegan & Sara Radio + Sleater-Kinney Radio + The Breeders Radio + The Be Good Tanyas Radio + Fiona Apple Radio + Pixies Radio. So far, so good!

  11. Got a pleasant surprise in the mail today. I was the liaison for one of the guests of honour at WWC this year. Today I got a package in the mail as a thank you. It had tshirts, chocolates, an autographed hardcopy of her latest book… all sorts of goodies. It’s nice to be appreciated.

  12. Ok Pan,

    I just finished making two different homemade sugar scrubs. They are delectable! My hands are so smooth and the fragrance is amazing!

    Autumn Spice
    Lavender Lemongrass

    Someone will have smooth hands tonight! >:)

  13. Depressing tweet of the day:

    @standupmaths: Sputnik launched today 1957, making the Space Age 56 yrs. Humans haven’t left low-Earth orbit for 40 yrs 9 mths 20 days. 72.9% of Space Age.

  14. Someone in the office has the most annoying eating disorder I’ve run across so far. She buys junk food, pastries, baked goods, and doesn’t eat them. Rather, she brings them in here for others to eat!

    Today, there is a fresh package of brownies in the kitchen with a sticky note “brownies for breakfast sounds like a GREAT idea!”

    Screw that skinny bitch.

  15. Crap joke for the day:

    A man is trying to understand the nature of God, time, and the Universe. He asks God, “How long is a billion years to you?”

    God says, “A billion years is like a second to me.

    ”The man then asks, “Well, how much is a billion dollars to you?”

    God says, “A billion dollars is like a penny to me.”

    So the man says, “God, can I have a penny?”

    And God replies, “In a sec.”

  16. OK. Started watching Breaking Bad on Netflix. As good as everyone says it is. I’m in the transition from season 1 to season 2 and I can say (hopefully spoiler free) that I’m most impressed with the concept that in season 1 there was precisely 1 likeable character (Walter White) whereas in Season 2 the number of likeable characters skyrockets (especially Hank and Marie). I hope all this Google searching on Meth doesn’t wind me up in the clutches of the DEA.

    • We’re in a race then. I am about 3 episodes into season2. Every episode I watch has to be followed up with at least a 30 minute sitcom or I curl up in the fetal position.

      • I was mostly unimpressed with the early seasons, but I guess I liked it enough to continue. I’m almost done with the first half of season 5 on Netflix now. The character trajectories are pretty fantastic, for most of the majors.

  17. I started watching Orange is the New Black and really felt like the “comedy” was supposed to be entirely based on the concept that a typical upper middle class person being thrown into a lower class situation. I actually find Breaking Bad to be more “comedy” oriented in the way that Orange is the new Black is supposed to be focused. For example, I found the “I have the talking pillow” intervention scene in Season 1 of Breaking Bad to be hysterically funny.

  18. Then this caught my eye

    Perhaps I am showing my age … but I can remember when getting talked into doing a stupid prank in High School simply resulted in a paddling by the principle, maybe 3 days of suspension and another month of detention hall. Now apparently it is a death sentence.

    Glad I’m not a kid in this modern world.

  19. Your crap joke for this evening:

    A man and his ever-nagging wife went on vacation to Jerusalem. While they were there, the wife passed away. The undertaker told the husband, “You can have her shipped home for $5,000, or you can bury her here, in the Holy Land, for $150.” The man thought about it and told him he would just have her shipped home.The undertaker asked, “Why would you spend $5,000 to ship your wife home, when it would be wonderful to be buried here and you would spend only $150?”The man replied, “Long ago a man died here, was buried here, and three days later he rose from the dead. I just can’t take that chance.”

    • I was just going to say, “ditto, I didn’t get it!”

      But I just got it. Thanks x100000, man! And I hope you didn’t rush, because I think I am pretty set in my plan to hold off for one more week, based on two requests for more time. Tomorrow should be a second Unshow, in advance of the true real final official absolute no further ado first DotF episode.

      • Well, I was just grateful it was delayed enough that I could finally contribute. I hope the additional delay will help in your contribution collations. 😉

        And based on your statement, T Cat says, “yeah, right.” 😉

        It’s gonna be a blast, I’m sure. 🙂

        I’ve been missing contributing around here. I hope all is well.

  20. I’m on my way to Dallas this very early morning. My flight is delayed 40 minutes-hope that’s not how the whole day is going!

    Have a great day!

  21. For 200 years there have been groups who have made a concerted effort to bring down the US system of government, to bring this country to it’s knees. These groups have spanned the spectrum – from giant well funded efforts like the USSR to the smaller ones like Al Quieda … and we have spent trillions of dollars and 100’s of thousands of lives to keep that from happening.
    In the end, our system of government is being brought down from within. By Americans.

    We’re number one! We’re number one!

  22. I need guidance.
    The rotating category … what exactly is Jabba’s motivation? What is his endgame?
    Also – are we doing this for just “our” character or for others?

  23. I just finished my essay for the Duel of the Fates Royale with Cheese. I will get it recorded and turned in before I go to bed tonight.

    J0e: For the rotating category, I based my response on the assumption that all the characters had done some unspecified thing to cross or wrong Jabba, and he simply wanted to punish them. In each category, I chose a handful of characters to write about, then narrowed it down to once character who would be my choice for the winner of that category.
