Sppoks and Sex WBAGNFARB

I know I'd do just about anything to get my favourite consignment of fertiliser.

But Spooks and Sex would be even better.

Live long and pprosper Jeff ;o)

Waylaid indeed.

Stupid firewall.

I know what fertilizer is but what are "FMCG products"?

Answering own question: "fast moving consumer goods"

whoops. i signed in as dave today to blog something from the bar and i just noticed i never signed OUT. so they're all mixed up. :(

Oh, no!! Now I'm really confused...if you're Dave, then who am I?

FMCG-fast moving consumer goods.
Yes, everyone has been warned about how fast consumer goods become fertilizer. (fertilizer to food, and VICE-versa) Fertilizer will one day "rule" the world and "tiny points of red lights" will be seen throughout the "free world."
quote: The Great DECIDER (ELECT ME, ELECT ME, ELECT ME FOR JUST ONE MORE TERM)

actually, after reading the story, i'm more struck by the cultural similarities between truckers here and there than cultural differences.

I guess I'm just as flummoxed as they are. I think. I'm really not sure 'cause I'm not sure I know WTF flummoxed is. But I guess I could be. Look! Something shiny...

Isaac! Fire up the moatarita blender!

*waits for company*

Company's here, sly, if you'll have me.

And thank you.

Aaaaaand I mess up my first post here. WTG, Diva!! *smacks self on back of head*

PS - I really don't like being called "Desk." I prefer Diva. :-)

Here! I could use a drink myself. But I'm working today. Overtime sux, but man, the money's nice.

Ah, yes, Miss Trrrrillian! Von delightful moatarita - vould you like frrrozen orrrr on ze rrrrrocks?

rock me!
errr, on the rocks

My baby daughter (who's 23, so notsomuch a baby) is getting married in about 6 weeks. I'm in the midst of breaking in the shoes I'm wearing that day, so today, I'm doing house work in high heels. Feeling very June Cleaverish.

Rrrrocks it is, Miss!

*Splash!!*

*slides glass down the barrrr*

Yes, but are you wearing pearls, sly?

I'm here. I promise that from now on I'll be nothing but fun and nice.

DeskDiva, if you prefer Diva so much, why don't you try changing your posting name to just Diva? Drop the desk, it's got to be heavy!

LOL, Lab. I think I shall take that under advisement. GungaDan calls me Diva Las Vegas, but if I did that, I might end up being Vegas. :) Hm.... That's not bad, either! :D

Is GungaDan one of your imaginary friends? I have those, too.

Now I have an ohrworm. And I'm not even an Elvis fan. Dammitall!

Yes, I'm prancing around the house in pears and high heels.

Sooooo I should bookmark HERE now, eh?

Oops, sorry for the 'worm, Lab. MY bad! I'm no Elvis fan, but that song I like. :)

No, GungaDan is not imaginary. He's an infrequent blogit on the main threads. A really lovely man.

Are those poached pears, sly? ;-P

Where the 'el did my "l" go??

(and to clarify, not referencing our own El)

sly- and nothing else?

Well..... I'm not going to be frying bacon today.

Sly, you sexy thang!

HERE!!!!!!
*sprays Lys0L around to make sure the coast is clear*

*coughs in the cloud of Lysol* Mmmm...clean!

I know I don't pop in very often, but can someone tell me what the hell was that all about? On second thought, I'd rather not know. Kudos to sly for the diversion.

We're not talking about it here, beebs. It's on the other thread.

Yes. Thank you, Sly.

*imagines sly teetering around the house in heels with a dustmop in one hand and a bottle of Windex in the other*

Hi Leets, what's shakin? You know what has three legs and an a$$hole? A drum stool! *rimshot*

A dustmop? Does anyone use those anymore? I thought it was all Swiffers now.

Ahhhh, drummer jokes.

Q - Why'd the chicken cross the road?

A - To get away from the drum solo.

I like it, sly.

How do you get a drummer to leave your house?

Pay him for the pizza.

SNORK!

Now I'm hungry for pizza.

Q - What do you call a Drummer driving a Volkswagon?

A - Farfromthinken

What's the last thing you'll ever hear a drummer say in a band?

Let's try one of my songs!

Hiya, sly, and thanks for the move. My favorite part was you channeling me -

HERE FOR CYRING OUT LOUD!

I have to go find where I left my html skills.

*snork*

Beebs and El, stay clear on the main blog. They've begun slinging lawyer jokes.

Q: What did the drummer get on his SATs?

A: Drool.

*pictures sly in high heels and pears... decides to think of something else*

Jackie says you should be wearing a shirtwaist dress with that, sly.

And baking, perhaps?

Anyone can sling lawyer jokes. It takes an artist to sling drummer jokes.

Checking In!!

I Brought Blueberry and Cheesecake-Topped Brownies. Anyone hungry?

Why is a drum machine better than a drummer?

Because it can keep good time and won't sleep with your girlfriend.

What do Ginger Baker and coffee have in common?

They both suck without Cream

Kaffy, I am so there.

And it comes with a warranty.

I posted a private joke on the Musical Product of the Millenium Thread on the main blog.

The drum machine that is.

Hey, Leetie! Doesn't Taco Cat need a drummer with a warranty?

Ginger Baker teaches drums in Malibu. That's a joke in itself.

What's the difference between a drummer and a savings bond?

Eventually the savings bond will mature and earn money.

*snork*

Do the drums really learn anything from him?

They would have a better chance than humans.

Sly, 'the cat' is definitely considering such a drummer. ;)

I hear Ginger Baker is available.

*sigh* I wish I had a good drummer joke. All we ever had in the Conservatory were oboe players jokes.

Hey, did you hear about the drummer who finished high school?

Me either.

How do you tell if the stage is level?

The drummer is drooling from both sides of his mouth.

*snags a small piece of blueberry cheesecake*
*can't eat for laughter*
*apologizes to any moat oboeists I might have offended*

Q: How many drummers does it take to change a light bulb?
A: Twenty. One to hold the bulb, and nineteen to drink until the room spins.

*SNORK!!!!*

BB, That's brilliant!

I'll drink to that.

*rim shot*

I should send these to my brother, who worships Ginger Baker.

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS! WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!!

Creamed 'em: 34 to 14.

What do you say to a drummer in a 3-piece suit?
"Will the defendant please rise..."

Did you hear about the bass player who locked his keys in the car? He had to break the window to get the drummer out.

*snork* at the 3-piece suit and ^ 5s to J.

...to get the drummer out. Hah! I love it!

*is glad Deon isn't here to see these*

Yay, Colleen!! That's awesome. :)

Hey Jeff, what are the Yankees doing to beat the Sox this season?

*Brings some lovely lavender-scented candles for the new MOAT home*


Nice job, sly. Congrats, Colleen.


YAY for J!!

A drummer, sick of all the drummer jokes, decides to change his instrument. After some thought, he decides on the accordion. So he goes to the music store and says to the owner, "I'd like to look at the accordions, please."

The owner gestures to a shelf in the corner and says "All our accordions are over there."

After browsing, the drummer says, "I think I'd like the big red one in the corner."

The store owner looks at him and says, "You're a drummer, aren't you?"

The drummer, crestfallen, says, "How did you know?"

The store owner says, "That `big red accordion' is the radiator."

And because this is an equal opportunity blog.....


Why do violinists put a cloth between their chin and their instrument?

Violins don't have spit valves.

Only drummer joke I know is:

What do you call someone who hangs around with musicians?

A drummer.

*sending positive vibes to the DC area Moaties who have lost power due to windstorms*

That's the only drummer joke I know too, Siouxie.
I told it to CG and he didn't get it.
*eye roll*

*snork* at bb's link.

Siouxie and El, it's a good joke.

I'm outta here. Going to visit my dad in the hospital and then to the museum for Art in Bloom.

Bye all.!!

Thank you, Sly! We're back on the grid. For now.

Absolutely the most hilarious thing about these jokes (to me) is that today's Underground Garage featured an exclusive interview with Ringo Starr. He has a new album out (Liverpool 8) and it's really good. And the really cool thing is that you can get it in USB format.

I was gonna email you about it, Leetie, but nevermind now. You already know!

THIS IS NOT REAL LIFE my friends.

CRAP! RL sucks!

*wonders what he's going to do now*

Sorry, only had 1 drummer joke (level stage). And it was a great image of sly walking around the house in only heals and pearls....

She's healing, kibby? Was she ill?

Wow. Heinzing was a bumpy ride tonight.

But here's to Colleen's J! Here's to housework in only heels and pearls (or pears)! Here's to drummers so we've got a crop of fresh jokes! And here's to shiny fresh moats!

*hic*

Hi, neo! How's school and stuff?

Today was not nearly so bad as last night rain-wise, so we got lucky. But the usual suspects (see: Wayne, NJ) are under a flood watch. And Cleveland and Buffalo are under snow.

Say 'hi' to your dad, sly, and hope he's feeling better.

*toast Neo*

*turns her over before she burns*

*hic!* Isaac, I need a drinkie, por favor!

Oh, and Colleen, tell J congrats from me, also!

*throws an extra S up into her previous post*

ALCOHOL WHERE'S THE ALCOHOL?!?

Oh, wait, I had two pints of Ruby Ale at McMenamin's tonight.

I guess *I* have the alkyhaul!

*hic*

try to say McMenamin's three times fast after three Harps.

*hic*

Reminds me of Lucy Ricardo trying to say Vitameatavegamins.

Don't forget to change your clocks.

i've deside to use my tax "stimulus package" to rent a cabin for a week somewhere in michigan this summer. I'm looking at rental listings and saw this:

RATES/PAYMENT INFORMATION
Summer 2008 6/1-9/4 Excludes 4th of July and Cheeseburger.

?

And tip your server.

Trillian, is the name of the place Kosher Kabins?

ha

i did some googling, and apparently they have a cheeseburger in paradise type festival

You can't haz cheezburger?

Wouldn't it perhaps be better if they included "festival" at the end of that ad? Or maybe they have to pay extra for words with "v" in them.
