I'm here too!!!! I'll post the link - if I can!!! got the stupid Gateway error too!

my post didn't :(

Trying myself El. Altho we seem to be doubling down here too.

*picks some rabbit fur outta teeth*
*burps*
*tries to post link again*

I tried to post this link on the MOAT and I couldn't - why don't you try!!

Boy, can we break a MOAT or WHAT???

Your link posted El. Twice. I'm still waiting for mine to show up. But it's not doing so hot down here either. Maybe it's a typepad thing yet again.

maybe typepad is having problems today -

Leetie, we stood at the window and watched...and waited...and watched. The crane was on the INSIDE of the stadium, which had to pi$$ off the people who went down to watch. We finally saw some lights flashing (cameras?) and then a puff of smoke.

Someone yelled "We have a Pope!" (ok it was me)

In unison, we said, "huh", turned and went back to work.

When I looked out this morning, there's about 30 feet of the inner edge of the roof missing. They said it will take between 3 weeks and 60 days.

Not as dramatic as an implosion; but that would have damaged the new stadium.

The host of this blog is having issues.

Here's a photo gallery of the wrecking ball and some other stuff.

What's to become of us? Are we MOATies without a home???

Mmmmm...bunny. Blushing bunny...a lowclass version of Welsh Rarebit...slightly thickened tomato soup with lots of cheese melted in...served on bread or crackers.

I know what I want for lunch.

But I'm not posting the playlist now...gonna wait til things calm down a little bit.

*hits post one time, delicately, and closes the window to scamper off to lunch*

I'll send a few e-mails.....

I'll send a few e-mails.....

That sounds delicious Susan - I have tomato soup - and - some good Gruyere cheese!
But since I just had an onion bagel with cream cheese I guess I should wait a while....

New MOAT time already, huh? Stupid typepad.

A big time belated congrats to Dr. Mad"ly in love with Weasel" Scientist! That's great!

Oh, and really LTTG, I remembered a question from sly about hockey attendance while I was out of town.

**begin minor rant**
F*** ESPN, F*** Time Warner Cable, F*** the management of the FORMER Cincinnati Mighty Ducks (now playing in Maine).

Currently, Cincinnati is a hockey-less town. The Cincinnati Cyclones (ECHL team) are on financial distress hiatus. The Cincinnati Mighty Ducks (AHL) moved to Maine. ESPN didn't pick up the television rights to the NHL this year, a channel called OLN (Outdoor Life Network) did. Time Warner Cable here in Cincinnati does not carry OLN.

So, if I want to watch hockey, I can either hope for the every now and then Columbus Blue Jackets being played on Fox Sports Ohio, or I can pay $160 to Time Wanker Cable for the NHL Center Ice package.

**end what was supposed to be a minor and turned out to be pretty major rant**

In general, I think attendance is a bit down. I never used to get emails from the Redwings like I have been getting this year. In years past, I got news updates and some upcoming promotions by email, and that's about it. Lately, I've been getting emails that tell me some tickets are available for this weekend's game, buy now! Or some such other crap (it was much easier to drop everything and drive to Detroit for a game at The Joe before CMB arrived).

I WANT MY HOCKEY BACK!!!!

Here's a picture of Brian B.
{{{poor baby}}}
AND

here's a hockey game for you!

BrianB; I THINK the Blues are for sale. Cincinnati Blues? How does that sound? Although their record this year is like 2 and 15 or something. You can just hear a huge sucking sound coming from the Arena.

At the beginning of the season, the games were carried on some obscure cable channel. Now they are on a local channel...but if this sucking keeps up, they will probably be broadcast by a local high school after their football season is over; when there aren't basketball games.

sly - the most exciting pics in the photo gallery were the ones of the people looking out of the garage thingys - too bad they couldn't implode it, much more fun.
And in other news,
I'm still a prisoner in my own home and the yellow crime scene tape is still up and people who drive by stop and look to see if they can see a crime - very funny!

el. - here's another case of Yiddish-word-of-the-day synchronicity as I used the word 'tuchis' in a post (about the multiple toilet-seat gluer)on the MB, just 90 minutes before you posted it!

insom - I wish I knew the Yiddish word for clairvoyant!!

I had a post (which may yey show up) with a link to a headline "Tom Cruise to replace sister with publicist" saying how cold Hollywood types were...

"I'm sorry, sis., but with the baby coming and all, the other family members have to double up on jobs. There might be something for you in Shipping, at least until the baby is old enough to lick envelopes."

*prays only one version of this appears*

El, psychic translates to "psichisch". Apparently they don't know what a clairvoyant is!

You can find the translator here

I wish I knew the yiddish word for "WHAT HAPPENED TO MY POSTA?!?!?!?!?!?!?"

*kicks typepad on the way out*

*hits post without ANY hope whatsoever it will do any good*

OH-KAY....so apparently, we're not going to be required to fill out that thingie if we want to post.

I sent an e-mail to judi a while ago....but its not us, it's the MB too!

*zips out to check BigD's link*

Cool site, BigD - I've just been using my Word of the Day calendar.

I HATE TYPEPAD. I had to do the weird numbers thing - hmmmph - don't they realize who I am??? Or maybe since I'm not in the top FF spot anymore *sob*, I'm nowhere....:(

I had written something about blushing bunny, how to make it, and how it's really good with american cheese, or velveeta...but maybe the post didn't go through.

Or maybe this will push it through, in multiples.

Hi weasy baby

El please count weasel and I in the list. And yes I have to type that stuff everytime to get this to post

*flops into lounger*

I need a cabana boy or two and lots of moataritas. I just got my flu shot.

So what if I didn't feel it a bit. They just STUCK A NEEDLE IN MY ARM!

Seriously, lining up like that to get the shot reminded me of "shot day" at school; only with less crying.

Hey! I didn't have to do the "prove you are not a robot" thingie!!!

They took pity on me 'cause of the shot.

Why can't I post?
*sobs*

Booger!!

Announcement

I just received an answer to my "do you know there are problems" e-mail to judi. Here it is:

Yes, it seems they are. Dave wrote to Nava about it and cc'd me. I haven't even been there today. Will have to go check!

Dr. Mad: Done!

Add two more calendars please, for Dave and judi! Thanks!

I'd already included them neo! Thanks, though. And to anyone else, posting here is fine instead of e-mailing, whatever you prefer: our motto: We aim to please!

Dare I say that the blog seems to be fixed?

Nice tune on iTunes Free Tuesday music!
*listening*

Hey, Fish! In the FF standings, we seemed to have switched positions. Apparently, it's your turn on top.

;)

Testing to see if I'm still an error.

WooHoo!
*happy dances back to the dinner dishes*

Forbes Email Time Capsule Story

*zips in*

I VOTED.

And I cut down the crime scene tape.
/end my day

*zips out*

*sliding in under the wire*

I voted, too. Almost had to arm wrestle a roomful of little old ladies to do it, too. I posted that experience on my blog. Grr.

We only had one issue here. The Missouri state representative for this district dropped dead of a heart attack in his driveway last year. He had just arrived home from the end of the session, got out of his car and down he went. I think he was in his late 30's; early 40's.

His replacement is being elected tonight. He apparently did not do a good job of financial planning for his family and his wife was a stay at home mom. Other than campaigning for her husband, that's about all she's done. She's having trouble making ends meet and is having difficulty finding a job.

So she's running for his office. Oy.

The other candidate has served very effectively on our local school board for years and has done a lot of civic work. She's got my vote.

As I was leaving the polling place, the widow was outside surrounded by campaign workers and they were holding a prayer service.

I don't have a problem with that.....I just hope someone who can't find a job in the private sector doesn't end up representing our district.

But based on the number of yard cards around town and the number of phone calls I've received, the widow will probably win.

I think I need to go to a prayer service.

There were two races in Cheraw today...and no winners.

One district seat had two candidates...final was 64 to 63, with a contested ballot. So the 64 vote getter could be a winner, or there could be a runoff. We'll know Thursday.

The other seat had 3 candidates...totals were 37, 23, and 39. So there will be a runoff in two weeks.

El, I sent you an email...add me to the list.

Remember the gal whose website was posted on the mainblog; about the church recipes?

Last night, she dined with Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

I got a kick out of that.

I got an IM earlier...truely meaningful, I'm sure.

johnsmithfreemind: My name John,am from England and am looking for a representative in the states who will be working for us as a partime worker and we are willing to pay 300 dollas for every transaction,which wouldnt affect ur present state of work,if u are interested pls am online u can chat with me

So...what I want to know...how much does 300 dollas work out to in dollars?

zips in*

I got an e-mail from blogchik asking to be added to the calendar list and she also included this message:

Also, please tell the MOAT I miss them.
*zips out*

My candidate won quite handily!! I'm sorry for everything the widow is going through; but I just don't think a seat in the legislature should be a "fall back" job for her. She had a lot of business people in the area backing her candidacy. Surely one of them can find a position for her.

El - please count me in for a calendar! Thanks!

Hey y'all! Man I almost get back into the swing of things around here and then the real world swallows me up again. Meh!

And what's all this calendar talk about??

Hiya Higgy!! Just wanted to point out that I'm here.. gonna post real information in minute

MeL.. Peri printed out 2006 calendars with Moatie birthdays and anniversaries marked, as well as a lot of fun holidays. You can get one for an incredibly modest price (Peri doesn't want anything for doing it, but we're insisting on paying her soemthing anyway) and all you have to do is send a SASE to Eleanor and she'll send you your calendar!

I had an amazing day at The Show! When you're out with two children under four, both with attention spans equivalent to those of bottleflies, you get to see a lot of things for very short periods of time. The family farmyard area had a lot of baby animals (even newborns!)- roosters, chickens, turkeys, goats, calves, lambs and so on. Then the dog trials (dogs herding sheep as part of a competition), the wood-chopping competitions, trampolines and bouncy castles, watching the rescue helicopters, fire enginges and police cars, judging for the horse and cattle competitions, buying candy floss (cotton candy), a treat for wolfie(!), windmill toys for the kids, (plus one extra windmill the second time around when 3yr old lost his...), a turn on the emergency services quad-bike (with motor off and keys removed), a look at farm machinery and back around to various different areas.
The "main attraction" at the entertainment area was the Topp Twins. To understand how awful I find this on a personal level (given that I'm a fan of jazz and blues, Motown and the like..), you need to know a couple of things. These women are twin sisters from Huntly, which is a farming town in the North Island. They (ISIANMTU) are lesbian, yodelling country music-loving twin sisters from Cow-town. Shoot me now, please. When I left, I had to walk past the entertainment area and they were singing a medley which included Oh Suzanna, She'll Be Comin' Round The Mountain, a couple of other songs, interspersed with yodel choruses. My latte almost made a return journey (yes, even at an A & P show, they have decent coffee. They also had alcohol, but I wasn't allowed to drink on the job.)
My upper arms got sunburnt, which is my own stupid fault. I had a zipped jacket on over a sleeveless top. I put the sunscreen on when I was still wearing the jacket and forgot to do my upper arms when it got hot later and I took the jacket off.

Also... one of the stalls was selling signs, posters, etc. I saw this one - I laughed really hard. If it hadn't been $30 (I only brought 20 with me to avoid overspending!), I'd have bought it in a flash. Then my phone rang and a it was a friend to tell me that they had to cancel our plans because they had a funeral to go to in the North Island. And I'm still staring at the NSS sign.

Oh.. and can anyone tell me if the fact that I feel like a complete bitch for making the Dominos' delivery guy fix my order when he got the drink wrong? It's not THAT far to go back to base (2 minute drive, maybe?), and he did get it wrong. The receipt was correct, but the order was different. So why did I feel like saying "Don't worry. It's okay. I'll just drink this stuff I hate, you have a nice night, I'm sorry for causing you stress." I am such a people-pleasing wuss!

I don't know what anyone else is calling this Moat, but I've gone with the Fluffy Bunny Moat. The link at the top of the page is still active and those bunnies need Epiladies for Christmas.

Lt. Woman, OMG, I didn't see these bunnies the first time the story was on the main blog. Wow! Actually, I don't think they qualify as "bunnies" anymore.

Ladies and gentlemen, we are witnessing the birth of the tribble.

This is part of an e-mail I received today:
"To aquarium the mind of the ape-man, procedure knowing as he did the proclivities I must piano beware how I cause mango her to regret her choice.' The last reflection may fluency the screen of recollection wealthy competitive the supplicating attitude" WTF?

Gee, it's been ages since I was mango-ed.Especially by an ape-man. You're so lucky BigD®.

I used to have a tribble. It made the cutest noises when I squeezed and petted it. Then it's little batteries died and it started sounding kinda bad when it got squeezed. Like it hurt.

G'mornin Moaties.

BigD....that seems to be the result of letting a monkey sit at a keyboard.

Speaking of search terms on blogs; my blog was a hit for someone using the terms "sly cooper sex". Gotta wonder what it was exactly that they were looking for. My blog was second on their hit list.

Huh.

mmm....Sly and BigD, your stories tempt me to create a blog called "Red Hot Monkey Sex" or some such and just wait to see what sort of comment spam turns up.

I'm suffering from a severe case of inertia this morning. I'm usually at the office by now; but this morning, I'm still in my jammies, sitting on my couch, debating calling it a mental health day.

Nahh. Gotta get my rear in gear.

Maybe coffee would help.

Later!

Count me in for a calendar, El! Also, if you could email me your addy, I'll work on getting a SASE to you.

shameless self promotion

Parts 1 and 2 of our D.C. trip are up on My Blog

/shameless self promotion

I had a helluva time trying to get blogger to accept all the pics last night. Parts 3 and maybe 4 are forthcoming. Probably later tonight.

*no zipping in this morning*

Because I am a farshlofener, fahr-shloh-feh-ner, sleepyhead!!! And apparently so is/was sly!

Is this just the greatest word EVER!!!!!
YES!!!

sly, I loved the Scalia blog entry. I must have missed her on the MB - she's very funy!

Kaf, love the posters!

Everyone but Higgy stop reading here

pssst, higgy, everyone who wants a calendar has to send me an SASE, but in your case, perhaps we could work out some sort of trade; for example, a higher position for me on the FF standings??? Just a thought! :-)

RESUME READING NOW.

Lots of people walk their dogs here every morning and they all carry plastic bags in case of you-know-what. But a while ago 2 women that I've never seen before walked by and one of the dogs pooped! in the middle of the street. They both laughed and kept walking!!!!!!!!
I wish there was a poop police so I could rat them out!

Looks like the Moat is suffering from some inertia as well. Me too. I'm cold, tired, and have a scratchy throat. Yay.

Great pics on your blog, Brian!

Leftenant Ma'am - the 'expose yourself to art' statue is in Portland, Oregon, I've seen it. I've also heard that the gentleman doing the exposing later became mayor.

...the gentleman doing the exposing later became mayor.

AHHH, MAAAAN WHY do they get all the good giggs!?

My posts seem to be suffering from inertia as well. I HAD tried to post that:

Whew! Made it in to work. Now to actually *twitch* werk!

Announcement

At the present time there is a problem with my e-mail. I received an e-mail from Cox this morning saying that during the night of Nov. 12 they were going to f**k it up - er, I mean, do maintenance, but maybe they've started early - who knows. So I guess I'll be out of the e-mail loop for some (?) period of time.

The following is a message in code for wolfie since I can't send her an e-mail:
Houston, we have a plan.

Resume regular programming.

*breaks out decoder ring*

Okie dokie. Will await further instructions. It's a shame your crime scene tape is down btw El. Would have been kinda amusing to just hang yourself half out of a window with some fake blood stains on your shirt or something.

My music site seems to be having issues. *sobs* I've been reduced to radio margaritaville until Susan comes on.
Luckily I don't have to chase the boss away. I sent him off with a fistful of paperwork earlier and I think he's scared to come back in case I have more for him.

Wolfie...I'm here...wow....I hadn't posted yet today. I thought I had at least said good morning...


So


Good Morning!

Yesterday when we were having typepad problems Jeff was unable to post before he and Jackie left for London, so he sent me an e-mail and asked that I tell everyone he said goodbye.
Since I know he will heinz when he returns I am doing this.

Jeff says, Bye, bye MOATies!

It is currently raining in one of our elevators.

*giggles*

The Moody Blues! Nice....

Wolfie, you didn't have anything to do with that, did you?

No Ma'am.
*adjust halo*

MeThinks I need to wear my Cheraw Braves shirt again Friday.

MeThinks I'll wash it ONLY if they lose.

MeThinks Friday's will be good days for everyone to stand up-wind of kibby.

MOAT POLL!!!

Ok, how many of you have a Cheraw Braves polo shirt!?

neener

The meteorological properties of Wolfie's elevator are very suspect. Last week it had hail the size of canned hams.

(who knows who I stole that from?)

Kibby...you bastard. I'm jealous.

Wurm.. the nonsesnse email didn't have anything attached, did it? Cos right now, I would be scared as all hell that I'd let something loose in my system.
Also, you don't need a new blog. You can just put a post on your own with the title "Red Hot Monkey Sex and Booger Jello" - then of course, the Moat would pop up on the list, as well. It would be interesting to see which blog came first.

*does up two buttons on Wolfie's shirt*
It's no good adjusting your halo if your ramparts fall out while you're doing it.

Josh!!!

hiya! G'morning and all that!

*goes to check Brian's blog*

Letterman.

neener.

Lt. Woman- huh? What nonsense email? Did I miss something?

Joshkr- hail the size of canned hams--> Terry Pratchett?

Josh? Do I win a prize? I like prizes you know.
*grins*

Ty Kat *smooch* Forgot I was trying to talk a vendor out of shipping charges.
