Hey! Why are all these refrigerators moving toward my desk?

To make it cooler?


So Blue, who's the owner of the fake gatwicks?

*raises eyebrows*

Ryan Pearson of Konowak Wyoming.

*waves to El*

*raises eyebrows with KDF*

*chugs another cider*


geez, you guys still aren't speakin' English?

*grabs a cold beer and decides to come back later*


*heinzes for once*

*wonders why cuz he can't understand a damn thing that was said*

*decides not to heinz again unless impaired, hopin that will help*

who am i kiddin? i'm pretty much permanently impaired

what i meant to say was - note to self:

do not heinz unless drunk or stoned, or a combination thereof

Hmm, don't recall English being much of a requirement in my years in Louisiana, SG.

TCK~ Let me trub your brantswack. That ought to frilk. ;-)

Psst! The beauty of not using real words is that they can be misunderstood so easily. You can make innuendo out of anything without being openly naughty; not that that would bother you. Get it?

*ducks before crawfish and various sizzling hot things start flying in ASK's direction from somewhere in Louisiana*

bumble - that may very well be true - however, my brain is overtaxed by the effort of simply forming real, actual words of the english language, or acceptable derivations thereof - the additional effort involved in formulating imaginary words is simply beyond the capacity of those fully functioning brain cells still available to me

TCK~ If you make the effort, I'll fwink your brockjot for you later. ;-)

Crawfish? Bring it on!


*ducks and awaits the crawfish that will surely be hurtling toward TCK and ASK any time now*

*counts to 10...ok, 50...and breathes deeply before decidin' what to do about ASK*

and if a "sizzlin' hot thing" is headed in his direction, it'll be me, but it won't be pretty, I can tell ya.

*glares at tc for his intentional mispronunciation*

get 'em, southerngirl!

Lights a halliburton and passes to TC.

Sorry, there's an asterisk outage here in north Jersey.

*sends a box of *'s to Blue*

Eek! Dinner lull!

I'm listening to the Foos, Kathy, and staring into space...and watching GameDay.

I think In Your Honor is my favorite song on the album, but No Way Back is great too....

or naptime (for me, at least)

KDF, does "dinner lull" mean the same thing as "beer thirty"?

s-girl~ I dunno; I was eating french toast.

OK, beer goes with almost anything

i say, almost anything

but not with french toast

(for french toast, or, in the right-wing vernacular, "freedom toast" - you need a nice, fruity cabernet)

s-girl...just about anything means the same as "beer-thirty" in my book.

Or, in deference to TCK, "wine-thirty" works just as well.

"beer thirty" or *wine thirty", I'm havin' a beer.

anybody else?

El, No Way Back is my favorite on that CD (but New Way Home from Colour and the Shape is my favorite Foos song ever.)

sg, is there anything that doesn't, in some way, translate to beer thirty? :)

And speaking of tattoos, (I think they were, up there somewhere...) anyone remember this conversation?

Actually, I have four...and I'll tell you about two. :) I have a black
silhouette of a wolf howling at the moon on the back of my right
shoulder, and I have a southwest-style lizard on the small of my back
somewhat left of center.

The other two...well...I tell people that those must be left to the imagination.

Or found by independent research. It all depends.

and my reply:

Sass and tattoos to match the boots! :)

I'm curious because I would have a tattoo by now if I weren't such a
wimp. Those dang needles scare me. Which doesn't make a lot of sense,
since I've had three babies (two without meds,) and felt like
Superwoman after the med-less ones. You'd think I could handle a
little needle.

Posted by: KDF | 06:23 PM on April 27, 2006

Well, folks. I did it.

I didn't know back then what I was going to tattoo on myself (you may recall that I even said that I would welcome suggestions) so I was surprised when I heinzed and found that I referenced it right up there in that post. Had my very own premonition, I did! Fwaxbloit! And YAYYY!!!

Egad, that was long. Sorry.

*promises to keep it brief for the rest of the night*

*thwacks TC's briefs*

WTG Kathy!!

I wish I had the nerve to do it. Care to provide any details - like location or pattern? :)

Hm. 10 points to the Kiltie who correctly ID's the location. Picture is in the link, El, so you should be able to see it.

pssst, it really doesn't hurt that much when they do it, honest -- kinda hurts so good, even

El, I think you should get an "FF" like the one on the back of Dave Grohl's neck. Although, I'm sure you could come up with a better place to put it. :)

*raises hand and waves wildly*

Ooooo! Oooooo! Oooooo!

I know! I know!

Um...can I play even though you told me the location, KDF??

Sharon! You are such a shickin' nickershot! Zippit for a minute, wouldja?

Sisters! Geesh.


Location, location, location!

*Excitedly unwraps package of *'s*
*Deposits a large number of them in a high-yield large punctuation mutual fund to ensure future supply*

I'm gonna hazard a guess that it's somewhere on the skin.

*Awaits 10 point reward with appropriate bonuses*

I'm sorry, Dr. Blue. We'll need you to be more specific.

No points for you!

You can have some soup, though. :)


Big sistah never lets me have any fun!

.....Okay, that's SO not true.

*SMOOCH* back atcha. I'm proud of you, my friend!!

pssssst - sharon

whisper the answer in my ear, and i'll split the prize with ya

really, i will


*loves Sharon a cider*

Hey, who you callin' big?

*thwacks the dragongirl with a farquer*


....whisperwhisper..whisper.......whisperwhisper whisper.....

Got it?? GO for it!

*looks at picture*

Well, I see something that looks like a clothing line at the bottom. Jeans perhaps? Is it on your lower back, KDF? Or your hip maybe?

10 points for Bumble! Right hip.

Yes! I'm good.

*hands five points to TCK*

Just 'cause I'm so nice.

damn! I thought it was the left hip.

lookin' good either way! :D



Thanks for indulging me, everyone! Not that you really had a choice.

Chicken noodle? Or hops and barley?


I didn't double-slurp, I swear.

But it was that good.

So, does that mean that you are now S-Girl, KDF? How does this work?

Congrat on your tat
KDF Superwoman
It looks good on you!

Oooh, hadn't thought of that! I think it means S-girl is next.

Thanks, Neo!

Very cool! I didn't see the link before - that's pretty big! I was picturing a small butterfly or a little heart!

Quite impressive! I like it. You can keep it! ;)

On another note, it's a shame that your new Super powers didn't help the Sox win tonight, while the Yankees did, so I think we're tied for FIRST place now, yes?
And Varitek is out. Hope that doesn't hurt the pitching...

But to be fair, I must say that Big Papi's 3 run walk off homer last night was mighty impressive!!!

object in picture may appear larger than it is...

It's maybe an inch and a half from top to bottom, and in a place where only the very top edge peeks out over my waistband (thus, the extreme closeup.) :)

And Big Papi possesses real superpowers. The guy is unstoppable.

Got it, Kathy! I was picturing it as big as the one on Superman's chest!

*zips out for the night*



Well, I think a pic that shows the location better would be in order.

Merely sayin'.

Now, if only Sharon would post a few pictures...

*wonders in which way KDF is now me*

*also wonders what I'm next for*

*also also wonders if I should be scared*

*grabs a beer and goes off to the Couch 'o Wonderin'™

"Varitek" always reminds me of a dotcom company; or a check verifying service.

Clarifying for sg, in case she really needs it since it is well past beer-thirty, though I suspect she is being facetious.

The "S" tattoo, qualifies KDF as being an "S" girl, which for some reason, I kinda like the sound of.

And I think she meant you would be next for a tattoo.

Yes, she did.

So, next question is what are you gonna get pierced?

No, the real question is what do I already have pierced.

Gee, I seem to recall 2 in one ear and one in the other...

are you hiding something?

Clarifying for sg, in case she really needs it since it is well past beer-thirty, though I suspect she is being facetious


I wish I was. I just didn't get it. but, as you said, it is well past beer-thirty...

but I did know she meant I was next for a tattoo! does that count for anything?

*hopeful look*

and if I do get one, what should I get, and where?

If you get a tattoo, get one of the cover of Dave and Ridley's book. As to where you should get it, get it at a book signing.

ASK - that was not the question.

*winks, tosses in a wide-eyed innocent look with a *hairflip* for good measure*

*awards 25 points to sg for hopeful look and valiant effort to get it*


Oh - thanks neo - I forgot about those! The boyz will be thrilled!

ASK, (by the way, when I see your name, I amuse myself by coming up with different meanings for your initials. Today I dub you ASK, the Chemically Dependant. Wait, that is my wine talking. Now what was I saying? Oh yes.)

ASK, I'd like to ASK your professional advice. Karaoke type stuff. Don't know that I have an email addy for you anymore. How can I reach you? (she ASKs, hopefully)

sg, I am still drooling mulling over the possibilities...

easy enough (as I am often described), asktcd@gmail.com.

and you do know what the cd stands for, don't you?

It's more fun to make up my own meanings.

Cleverly Diabolical
Conveniently near Dallas
Continentally Debonair
Cute Derriere
Camouflaged Designer

dang it's hard to type, and harder to spell, after a glass of wine.

never touch the stuff.

Dave, when I offered a bet on the NBA finals, replied that he never takes money from clearly deranged people.

And thus, ASK, the Clearly Deranged.

Well, if all the tattooing and piercing is done, I guess I'll call it a night. I did update my blog tonight as well, which I only mention as it happens so rarely. New links, 2 new posts, and a new picture.

Good (yawn) monring romning grief!

Anbody know how to predate an entry on Blogspot? I want to move my MySpace blog entries over, but don't know how to do it and keep the original dates.

Good ningmor!

KDF ~ when you move each post and turn it into a post (create new post) down near the bottom of the box is a date and time option. If you click on it it will give you a dropdown that lets you select days, times and year.
nice tattoo.
*has tattoo envy*
*realizes she's still scared of needles*
*continues coveting other peoples tattoos*

Glad you asked.

1. Take the juice from one bottle of that Ol' Janx Spirit.
2. Pour into it one measure of water from the seas of Santraginus V. (Oh, that Santraginean seawater. Oh, those Santraginean fish!)
3. Allow three cubes of Arcturan Mega-gin to melt into the mixture (It must be properly iced or the benzene is lost).
4. Allow four litres of Fallian marsh gas to bubble through it. (In memory of all those happy hikers who have died of pleasure in the Marshes of Fallia.)
5. Over the back of a silver spoon float a measure of Qalactin Hypermint extract. (Redolent of all the heady odors of the dark Qualactin Zones.)
6. Drop in the tooth of an Algolian Suntiger. (Watch it dissolve, spreading the fires of the Algolian Suns deep into the heart of the drink.)
7. Sprinkle Zamphuor.
8. Add an olive.
9. Drink . . . but . . . very carefully . . .

This won't change the dates on any transferred entries, but you'll feel a lot better about it.

Oooooooo! Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters for breakfast! Thanks, Blue!!

*chugs...not at all carefully*

*feels brain smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped around a gold brick*

*thud! she said*

Blue, isn't that the recipe for flan?

Wolfie, oh Goddess of the Den... thank you! I'll work on it today.

Nobody's more afraid of needles/scalpels/unnecessary pain than I am. See my above post about hurts so good. Really. I'll be doing it again.

Off to sub at preschool camp this morning. Should I show the kids my new body art?

Later, all!

Mmm. Flan.


Yes, Blue, I think you should. But you'll have to run fast to catch her, at this point.

*runs off in an attempt to play hard to get, but runs slow enough to be caught*

*flips hair*

*sprawls like a speedbump on the floor, still in a divine Pan Galactice Gargle Blaster trance*

*accidentally trips Bumble mid-hairflip*

*comes out of it*

Oops. Sorry sweetie.

Neo, I agree, but it's not speed that's the issue, it's the mild inability to stand up.

*stands up, flips hair and winks seductively at the boys*

I meant to do that.

*runs off again*

*experiences a mild inability to stand up*

Ummm....yeah, I'm comfy right here, thanks.

*runs back to help sharon up and give her these*

*gets caught*

Oh well.

Ooooooo, Bumble! You are my new best friend!



(and you all thought my moniker was ironic!!)

Wow, KDF, that was unexpected. I don't like tattoos in general, but I love the story behind yours, so I like it!

*sits quietly in a corner* I don't have much to say lately.

*Stumbles toward nearby blogette pileup*

*Suggests a more expanded interpretation of friendship*

Marie, you've been trying to get a peek at my tattoos for months now...what do you mean you don't like tattoos?? I'm not buying it.

*hands Blue a square of chocolate*

Friends don't let friends go without chocolate.

I don't like the idea of tattoos much, but I suppose that changes when I like the person. Otherwise it just scares me. I don't think I'd ever get one.

Well, it makes sense to me, anyway.

*Gratefully accepts friends' chocolatey offering*

*Dons welding mask and pours more PGGBs in return*
