Hey - VEGAS WEDDING! Whaddaya say?

El, some of us live over on the west coast...far far away...

Oooh...I didn't say it here...

Congratulations Mad and Mike!!!

Jeff see note to Higgy

Okay.. I was still Heinzing on the other moat. I was warned last night that I should be awake for today's requests.. so I'm up. As announced by Susan. You heard it here second.

Not having caught up to the move, I posted a congrats back at the Whoopee Moat. So once again... Congratulations to an amazing couple. May you have long life, good health, and everything you dream of. (This is far more eloquent than myt earlier post.)

I did offer Sally (not Bumble) a HTML badge. I said someone else would have to give it to her. I apologise for getting carried away.

I didn't post last night. I tried, but I was talking to Mad and I was almost totally zoned out (I'll tell you why in a minute) and for some reason, I closed this page instead of hitting post. Being without energy, I couldn't be bothered reposting and went straight to bed without passing go.

Yesterday was the day of my allergy test. What they did was write numbers up and down my arms.. there was a negative and a positive control spot. Then 13 numbers for different allergens. They put a tiny drop of each allergen next to each number, then use a craft-knife blade to press the allergen under the skin. Then they wait for a reaction. I had a few minor reactions and one nasty one. It blew up to almost twice the size of the positive control spot. I was queasy and dizzy for the rest of the day. Not pleasant. By 8:30pm my eyes felt like they'd been sandpapered, (still do a little!), my whole body ached and I couldn't think straight. So whatever that was.. I'm not doing that again!

Thank you, Susan for playing my request!! Isn't she amazing! ****** (not mentioning the name again...) is the Beach Boys song she despises the most, and I deliberately didn't ask for it because I knew how she felt.. I said top 3 preferences.. Don't Worry Baby, God Only Knows and Wouldn't It Be Nice... anything else is good.. and she played ****** for me!!

Susan.. I hope you recorded this.. you know everyone's gonna ask you for a copy!

Congrats MAD & MIKE

Susan, they are 32 1/2 hours from me, you are about 6 hours east of me, so if you wanted to drive straight through it would only take about 38 1/2 hours *snork*

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

HAPPY HAPPY DAY!!

I was just thinking that the other day when you guys announced it's been a year since you were dating.

Wedding.....When?? Where?

Kaf - it didn't sound as bad as I remembered it! :)

I know - was LTTG with the comment. Virginia is close (he said hopefully).

No plans on the wedding yet. I am focusing on my thesis right now. Once I finish that in november we will start making plans and setting dates etc.

Thanks! We haven't determined and where or when yet, but it's probably a good ways off yet. Hmmm, if we wait most of a year, we could do it on TLAPD... "Arrr, do ye take this wench t'be yer lawful wedded wife or do I have to keelhaul ya?"

Lt. Woman: What if you're allergic to craft-knife blades?

So Kaf, what was the allergy to? I had the test but only had reactions to mold spores (moderate) and dust (slight). This was after they discovered I'd suddenly developed an allergy to aspirin after 40+ years (which is apparently not that uncommon). I had hives like you wouldn't believe all over my body.

DONOVAN!!!!
Are you kidding?!?!?

FLASHBACK!!!

I'm just Mad about April

They call me Mike Weasel

...anyone up for the entire song?

Me, me, kibby - I am!!

"...the elec-a-tric-al bananaaaa..."

*goosebumps*

*sweep sweep*

Work, damnit.

What are you sweeping??

Dropped unbold tags. I think I got um all.

Lt. Woman, I think those allergy tests are causing you to hallucinate.

Ah. Mozilla.

*walks in wearing a hospital gown ... backwards*

Is this thing supposed to tie in front?

'cause it's not covering a *damn* thing.

so .... I hear congratulations are in order?

Congrats Mike and April. Couldn't happen to two cooler people. I wish you the very best!

Hospital gown? Did you have a really good weekend, Punkster? Or a really *bad* one?

*in awe*

Congrats Mad and Mike!!!

We must alert Dave.

Yay.. thanks MoatMaid. Question.. why do "close" tags always work for you?

Craft knife blades would be an unusual allergy. I'll find out what the big reaction was in the next few days, I hope.

Jeff.. I hope you have a Medic-Alert bracelet (or US equivalent). Standard emergency first aid for a stroke or heart attack is aspirin to break up the blood clots.
*wants to make it clear she's not wishing a medical catastrophe upon Jeff.. just being overly cautious*
My sister is allergic to penicillin, and she's supposed to have a Medic Alert bracelet, but she doesn't. I'll have to get onto her about that.

Well, I don't know about anyone else, but that request hour has me all worn out. I'm going to get a couple more hours sleep.

*heads for hammock.*

Donavan was courtesy of an earlier request...and not being prepared. A classmate of mine had stopped by, and we got talking and trying to figure out where some people are. She sees a lot more people than I do...but I'll call some today.

I did record Mad on the phone...not the show though...but I do have her announcement.

Kat ~ because I'm never sure if they will or not so I double them up. /b and /B. I figure one or the other will take.

By the way, I meant to ask this earlier....has anyone checked to make sure the android's battery pack is charged up?

HOORAY! Congratulations Mad and Weasel!!!

**throws his congratulations for Mad and Weasel onto the pile**

Lt. Woman, I have had the skin-prick allergy tests before..they are hideous. Could be worse, though- once they did a "comprehensive" test for about 50 allergens, had numbers and pricks all over my back (not enough room on the arm). My whole back swelled up and turned purple, so they just wrote "environmental" on the form.
Gotta love modern medicine...at least when it's Punky in a backwards hospital gown. **winks**

Kibby, my man! Yo! We gotta go out and do some testosterone-affirming single guy stuff! Let's play pool and then eat a giant pile of suicide wings while watching that local sports team. And then cruise for chicks! Yeah!

**suspects that he does not score very high on the guyness test**

Might I suggest the midwest for your cruise?

OMG! There are rain clouds coming!
We haven't had any rain for like 2 months!

*crossing fingers that it rains*

*mails Leetie a box of rain* Freshly fallen even. Hope the postman doesn't mind the wet carton.

Leetie, we just got a morning full of rain. Hasn't rained here in, like forever. My lawn was getting crunchy but now it is probably happy.

*zips in from Cosmo thread*

WOW! People got pretty damn serious about the topic! (I insert *hee,hee* the word "damn" to show that I too am serious) Ginormously long posts, serious reflections, diatribes about sex, women, blah, blah... I thought it was going to be funny when it started, but nope!

The best post was sly's one liner! Cut to the chase and pithy too!

Kaf, it is OK now. I just was taking so much aspirin that it flared up. I've never had another problem. I don't take aspirin or other aspirin-related products (ibuprofen, Aleve) for headaches, but I do take a baby aspirin a day on doctor's orders as a preventative.

Thanks for your concern.

Leetie: us too. We're have 1/3 of an inch of rain over the last 37 days (how's that for precision?), at least according to the morning news. August 19 was the last significant rainfall here. They predict half an inch or more by midnight.

Hey, I wasn't serious either! But yes, Sly's line was the best.

And you didn't mention that Wurm got posted, El.

Jeff, I haven't seen that yet.

Bis, I can't figure out how to comment on your blog, so I'm commenting here! What a beautiful location! Here in su.so.ca. we don't have (for the most part) leaves that turn - *sigh*

Agree on the seriousness of the Cosmo thread. Ick!

...I am trying to work really hard today, but it's so much PAPERWORK! And BORING! It's so monotonous that my mind keeps wandering to all the things the STBX has been doing and is going to do. GRR! Even have music playing as a distraction, but it's not helping! I wanna stay in a good mood, but I wanna get my work done too!...

*blush*

Thanks guys. As far as the wordiness on that thread.... sadly, it's a trait of my gender to over analyze.

How to attract a man:

1. Show up.

2. Shut up.

Here's a distraction Tamara - I sent this in very early this morning but since it doesn't look like it's going to get posted, I will self-post *neener*

"Hypnagogic does appear to be waxwing. Hope he comes back!"

She. Pretty sure but not 100%. Feathers.

[back to work]

congratulations , Mike and Mad!!!!!!

Until Mad is finished and can be MOAT Doctor , let it be known I am a doctor and can examine anyone...

Oh, o.k so it's a Ph.D. In math. Can't blame a guy for trying.

El, your article reminds me of the commercial where Danica Patrick (who as her boss, David Letterman would say, is 'easy on the eyes') is caught speeding , tries to show a little cleavage to the patrolman, who is a woman. (and then fantasies take over...)

Morning MOATies!

I am a very happy Brian B today! In my football pool, I took the week! MNF doesn't even need to be played! Out of the already 13 games played, I lost one. Also, my BENGALS are for REAL, baby!

Big time congrats to Mad and Mike! Great news!

{{Tamara}},
As a male of the male persuasion, I would like to apologize on behalf of my gender. We can be such dicks. At least you found out now.

Wolfie,
Your box of rain comment reminds me of one of my FAVORITE Grateful Dead songs! Here it is!

Look out of any window
any morning, any evening, any day
Maybe the sun is shining
birds are winging or
rain is falling from a heavy sky -
What do you want me to do,
to do for you to see you through?
this is all a dream we dreamed
one afternoon long ago
Walk out of any doorway
feel your way, feel your way
like the day before
Maybe you'll find direction
around some corner
where it's been waiting to meet you -
What do you want me to do,
to watch for you while you're sleeping?
Well please don't be surprised
when you find me dreaming too

Look into any eyes
you find by you, you can see
clear through to another day
I know it's been seen before
through other eyes on other days
while going home --
What do you want me to do,
to do for you to see you through?
It's all a dream we dreamed
one afternoon long ago

Walk into splintered sunlight
Inch your way through dead dreams
to another land
Maybe you're tired and broken
Your tongue is twisted
with words half spoken
and thoughts unclear
What do you want me to do
to do for you to see you through
A box of rain will ease the pain
and love will see you through

Just a box of rain -
wind and water -
Believe it if you need it,
if you don't just pass it on
Sun and shower -
Wind and rain -
in and out the window
like a moth before a flame

It's just a box of rain
I don't know who put it there
Believe it if you need it
or leave it if you dare
But it's just a box of rain
or a ribbon for your hair
Such a long long time to be gone
and a short time to be there

**reminds self that crack on a Monday is not a good thing**

I always thought of waxwing as a female. Gone before I arrived, I believe, but that was always the feeling I had.

The "going back to sleep" thing didn't work. It rarely does, but it was worth a try.

Jeff.. the baby aspirin is probably for desensitising. I'm glad it seems to work.

*Goes to see Cosmo thread and Wurn's post*

If it hasn't been posted, I'll self-post something when I get back. I found a better photo to go with it, too...

*pulls slide ruler out of toybox*

Dr insom ~ care to calculate how many square inches of skin I have please?

Brian ~ glad to be of service.

Insom I am sure a lot of the moatettes would like you to examine their hypotenuses.

Okay.. here you go.. self-posting - with a photograph, of course..

Mad.. I've got a boil on my hypotenuse. D'ya think he could fix that?

Hehehehe.. anyone with kids like the soda experiment post on the blog?

RIP Max

Bummer.

Lt. Woman,
I am sooo gonna do the soda thing tonight, think the wifester would appreciate it in the kitchen? I guess I better do it outside or I will not be alive tomorrow to blurk.

He was 82?? Whoa, I feel old now. Granted, even I was watching reruns but I enjoyed that crazy show. I guess KAOS finally caught up with him... those terrorist bastards!

He's gone to the eternal Cone of Silence.

lol sly!

Thank you, sly. I wanted to say something funny and relevant, but I couldn't think of anything. I did get a mental picture of him popping out of the casket and saying "Would you believe (*holds fingers next to each other)... this close?" But that could be slightly tacky.

You know it will be a bad day when....


News Hunk Shepard Smith is doing the news from St. Bernard Parish wearingshorts! He has skinny legs, but he's still pretty cute. He went inside of some of the houses that look like they might be OK from the outside and are just totally destroyed inside - it was a very depressing newscast. But then everytime they did a long shot so you could see his shorts, you giggled! Maybe he was going for comic relief....

Brian: thanks for posting that. After Wolfie mentioned it I went to get out American Beauty, my favorite Dead album.

El, I sent that cop flasher story to Judi a couple of days ago but no luck so might as well post it here.

" Not the Craw, the Craw!"

It's true, back in 1965 (my children), "Would you believe?" swept the nation, along with "Sorry about that, Chief" and "Missed it by...that much."

Kaf, glad to see at least one politician is a man of his word (sort of).

I can't remember if they mentioned it in the article Jeff, but Rodney Hide missed the "streak" because he was opening a bowling alley. Another article quoted him as saying "It's probably the only election promise that the Green Party will ever keep, and the one we least wanted them to."
