Maybe Jack Bauer will be the first to kill a passenger who uses their phone on the plane. Maybe it'll be Audrey. We can hope.

THANK YOU, FCC Chairman Martin!

Somebody buy that man a beer!

"Edna, you'll never guess where I'm calling from! I'm yelling because I'm calling from a plane! Yes, in the air! And guess who's sitting next to me?....Guess! Nope....nope....nope, but don't I wish!....nope, it's Dave Berry. DAVE BERRY....the writer?....I was hoping you could tell me, that's why I was calling you....did I tell you where I'm calling from? You'll never guess!"

Snork @ Annie.

I was totally going to post the same--well not verbatim, as I don’t know anyone named Edna.

Who's Dave Berry?

he wrote a book...or something..

Dave wrote a book?????????

*somehow, it just never gets old*

Who the hell is Dave BErry?

I kmpw who Dave Barry is, he signed a book for me. Who is tis other guy?

Ohforgoodnesssakepeople! I was joking! Obnoxious people always mispronounce Dave's name.

sheesh, bali - no wonder your cat peed on your dive bag. ;)

Well. I'm goin'ta'hell. Anyone else like my handbasket?

Hee hee.

Annie, I think some people have had one too many flip-flops, IYKWIM. ;-)

Stoopid bot...

I got it, Annie!

Seriously, gorgeous Spring weather and my windows open, I had to keep cranking the volume on the stereo because a guy, outside the house, across my lawn, across the street was pacing back and forth ranting into his phone. That gut was so loud he could probably have been heard by the person on the other end, had they opened their windows!

This must have been done to reduce the potential for violence on the aircraft!

I hate when guts are so loud I have to open my windows!

*snork* at CJ & writer132!

On our flight, you called your friend, Nicole
Yakked incessantly; I lost control
Thanks to your conversation
I missed my vacation
But in ten years I’m up for parole.

It's just you sky talkin'
You're telling us lies, yeah
Sky talkin'
It ain't gonna fly
Sky talkin'
No need to pretend, yeah
Sky talkin'
Has come to an end

Oh, my friend
Seems you don't know
Just where the line will be
Oh, my friend
You talk too much
They're gonna take away your frequency

For all of your sky talkin'
You're not fooling this crowd
Phone signals
Won't reach to the clouds
Nobody will hear what you say
It's cause your sky talkin'
Is over today

I'm all for a complete ban on cell phones. period. I'd also ban serving liver and onions in restaurants, just for the record.

and "sheesh, bali - no wonder your cat peed on your dive bag. ;)" made me spew my beer!

now that's a funny slam!

So... you're cool with liver and onions on airplanes, then?

Wyo - bali mentioned it on a prior thread. I thought it was pretty funny, but hopefully no beer was wasted due to my comment. And I'll second your liver and onions ban.

CJ - the guy was probably trying to hear himself think over your stereo. You crank your music, he talks loud, etc ad nauseum.

Last weekend our neighbor kid decided to sell lemonade in his front yard. Business was slow, so he decided to 'advertise' by screaming "LEMONADE!!!" at the top of his lungs, many, many, many times. The house next to his is now up for sale. ISIANMTU

Maybe they should allow cell phones on planes, but only if the user is inside a clear, one-gallon Ziploc bag.

Maybe we should put the bot in a one-gallon ziploc bag. :(

*wonders what else Annie's keepin in one-gallon ziploc bags.*

*wonders if she'd share*

I don't like it when people talk loudly on cell phones, but every now and then, those cell phones come in handy, for people who talk at a normal conversational level.

Sorry, Wyo - no gots....I get this weird just on caffeine. Anything else and my head would explode...again.

thanks, 'night-maid.' Nice strappy sandals.

*applauds Meanie*

*snork* @ Wyo & Annie*

1 Quart, 1 QUART zip lock bags my friends. Sheesh, have we learned nothing here? We are totally going to be busted.

SEND MORE DAVE BERRY!!

Somehow that never gets old either.
(In cyberspace no one can hear you disagree.)

"A $10-per-trip AirCell service slated to roll out by early 2008 would let passengers use Wi-Fi-equipped laptops to e-mail, surf the Web and access corporate networks."

Just my luck, I'll be stuck between Aunt Goldie yakking on the phone about her son the doctah and a pimply smelly weirdo surfing gay midget amputee porn sites. With his volume up.

Cheryl - I was trying to be nice. One gallon = reasonable. One quart = that's just cruel. And doesn't it have to be a 'Ziploc' tm thingy brand bag?

Stevie - if you don't like it, then next time don't fly with your family.

Time again for one of my favorites:

All my bags are stashed, I’m here on the phone
I’m sitting next to you; don’t groan
I hate to tell you, I won’t say goodbye
Cuz my best friend’s speaking; she’s so upset
We need to talk now, though I’m on this jet
Already I know you just want to cry

So curse me, and frown at me
Tell me of your hate for me
Hold your ears; you don’t want to let go
Cause I’m calling on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll hang up again
These things take time, you know

Now don’t whine; and stop your griping
Blow your nose; it needs wiping
Just close your eyes, and you’ll get through today
Dream about when you’ll come home
And you will get to be alone
We’re landing soon; I’ll be on my way

So curse me, and frown at me
Tell me of your hate for me
Hold your ears; you don’t want to let go
Cause I’m calling on a jet plane
Don’t know when I’ll hang up again
These things take time, you know.

*SNORK* @ Ducky. And thanks for the earwig

*wonders where Ducky or Stevie W could go with the premise "HERE I AM, TALKING LIKE A HURRICANE"...*

*hastily sets coffemeker to "stun", seeks new coffeemaker with more advanced capabilities so as to be able to set it to "stupefy"*

i'm already set to stupefy, i need something stronger.

I'm pretty sure it's illegal to set it to "amphetamines"...

mornin', legal forms of speed will be welcome. TGIF and all that stuff. today i will be seeking a grant to discover why i feel like i'm in the third day of a two day drunk when i don't drink any form of alcohol. there has got to be money it this somewhere.

Good morning ladies!

A big *SNORK* up there to Ducky!!

Annie, I'm glad you liked my cleaning outfit ;-)

I brought chocolate croissants!!!

chocolate croissants? perks up! anyone bring strawberries? whipped cream?

it's breakfast cg-not sex. oh, did i say that out loud?

*reads ww's post and sadly puts strawberries and whipped cream back in fridge*

*dejectedly puts chocolate syrup back in cabinet*
*pouts*

*turns camera off*

food, sex, interchangeable anymore.

I'll have a couple of giant sausages.

What?

NT and Lazee-carry on. sex for breakfast is never a bad thing, gets the day started right, gets all the synapses firing in the proper order, right after that post-coital nap. just saying that breakfast and sex should not be confused.

Okaaaaaayyy, well, I'm full!

Off to work!

See ya all later!

ww - yay!

"accidentally" drops chocolate syrup in bed...

*waves @ Punkin*

I'm off to get READY for work!

see ya's latah!

can i confuse brunch and sex? lunch? dinner? midnight snackies?

DEFINITELY midnight snackies!

Why is the P0rn and Pancakes thread now echoing in my head?

sex IS the best midnight snack. and if you confuse sex and any meal then i'll bet you don't have to watch your weight! in fact, that sounds like the kind of diet plan i could stick to. now, i have to find an exercise/diet partner.

you may be on to something there, ww. that's a book that would sell. for a couple hundred pages just encrouage people to get laid every time they feel hungry.

if i had sex every time i was hungry, i'd die from exhaustion in two weeks. however, i'd be thin with a grin.

there's your title! "thin with a grin"

Research ought to be fun!

i'm rushing to copyright that title. now the really easy part is writing the book. this might be a best seller.

Just remember to include a chapter about using BOBs. Some of us don't have SO's who can keep up (har!) as it is.

you may need to provide info on where to buy batteries in bulk then...

Why does this thread suddenly give the exercise video, "Sweatin' to the Oldies," a different and horrid aspect?

see that's where i run into trouble. i don't think that there are many SO's who could keep up and i don't believe that using BOBs will work quite as well at burning excess calories, which is an integral part of the diet plan. i'm still working on that angle though. it is possible that i could create an entirely new service industry of 'diet partners'. wonder how i'd conduct the interviews though.

Morning, Blogits!

The Woot Off continues! Woot! Woot!

anyone need batteries??

ww, i'd be happy to host auditions.

thanks cg!

Wow - you guys are better than caffeine. What a morning pick-up-me-and-throw-me-down!
(I noticed, also, that most of the boyz are quietly blurking.)

not blurking, annie, just quietly basking in the afterglow of "breakfast"
