You're the man!

Car fumes vs. cow pies
Officials are stepping cautiously.

Yes, I bet they are...

Key quote:
"...releases about 5.3 tons of ammonia vapor into the air each winter day."

What the heck are they FEEDING these cows if you're putting that kind of AMMONIA into the air?

Obviously, I'm behind in my cow-fart-science...

Well, now that I've visited that article, I have Car Fumes & Cow Pies here in my Cache too!

"Studies show pollution increases lead to more school absences, lost work days and even higher death rates."

Sorry I can't come to work today - The cows have been farting again.

Apparently, all of that ammonia renders Utah journalists incapable of using more than one paragraph per story.


That's what they need. They're used in tunnels to circulate the air, why not in valley's. The inversion acts as a ‘ceiling’ trapping the warm, obnoxious fumes below. So a few of those HUGE wind vanes used to make electricity, turned around to blow would clear the smog.

Man, too good.

Good times….

"I think we need to make sure we are on firm ground when we go there."

How deep is it, Ed?

I dunno, Ralph. I'm stepping cautiously, though!

Cache County Executive Lynn Lemon - sure, that's his/her real name, yeah. oh, the lynn lemon with the farting cows, yeah, sure.

Livestock Dung & Urine stories and they call you threadbare! The nerve of some people.

Somebody oughta sell that man a paragraph.


Dave (no, not that Dave, the OtherDave)

Nice and secluded.

Not too shabby. No spammage either. Unless someone finds something more take-over-the-worldish.

But watch yer step.

Hey, um, while there's nobody else here...

You noticed that too eh?
This could be good. Bwuahahahaha

She's right.

*covers up*

Its okay, invisible people are blind. If light can't interact with you, you can't interact with light.

And mentioning a little light interaction...

What's going on in here?

*innocent blink*

Oooo.. new thread.. new supply of innuendos. Sweet!

Wanna interact onna personal level before everyone finds us OhStudlyElfishPerson?
*suggestive wink*

oh. ok. Um, back to packing and cleaning, I guess.

Yeah, ASK is right. Carry on.

Lake Como has been marked as shared between Kaf and El. Paris has been given to MarieP.

I'm off to take a shower and maybe study some Russian. See you all around. Ciao.

*carries on carryin on*

Oh my. I got so embarrassed I vanished. That, or this is what happens when I try to slip outta my fur.

*Gropes Wolfie. Misses*

*holds very still so as not to be missed again*

Sound. I need sound. Heavy breathing will do nicely.

*marches in playing "Oh When the Saints Go Marching In" on a kazoo*

Is that enough noise for you all?

*breathes heavy*

*begins to hyperventilate*

*boss gives her trip to hospital for secretaries day*

zips in

Not heinzed but here - this looks great, especially since I'm going through a country music phase and also wondering

Where Have All The Cowboys Gone


*unties the cowboys she had stashed in her closet*

*releases them to run free*

Sorry El.

*Cuts hand on spur while trying to grope Wolfie*
*Draws clear blood*
*Faints. Can't stand the non-sight of blood*

Uh oh, cowboys are running free? Nooooooo! The bolo ties, the boots, they're scaring me. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHH!! Really, the cowboys I've met (and we have quite a few here) have been creepy. *shudders*

Don't worry Sarah. After all, they were in the closet for a good long time.

*refrains from making obvious "Cowboys in the Closet" "Brokeback Mountain" references*

And now they're Brokeback?

Here are the cool lyrics to Where Have All The Cowboys Gone, which is sung by Paula Cole in an ironic tone of voice!
*prays she's using ironic correctly*
"Where Have All The Cowboys Gone?"

Oh you get me ready in your 56 Chevy
Why don't we go sit down in the shade
Take shelter on my front porch
The dandy lion sun scorching
Like a glass of cold lemonade
I will do laundry if you pay all the bills
Where is my John Wayne?
Where is my prairie son?
Where is my happy ending?
Where have all the Cowboys gone?

Why don't you stay the evening
Kick back and watch the TV
And I'll fix a little something to eat
Oh I know your back hurts from working on the tractor
How do you take your coffee my sweet
I will raise the children if you pay all the bills
(Repeat Chorus)

I am wearing my new dress tonight
But you don't even notice me
Say our goodbyes (Repeat 3 times)

We finally sold the Chevy
When we had another baby
And you took that job in Tennessee
You made friends at the farm
And you joined them at the bar
Almost every single day of the week

I will wash the dishes while you go have a beer

Where is my John Wayne?
Where is my prairie son?
Where is my happy ending?
Where have all the Cowboys gone?
Where is my Marlboro Man?
Where is his shiny gun?
Where is my lonely ranger?
Where have all the cowboys gone?
Yippee Aw, Yippee Yea (Repeat 3 times)

Is this a great song or what???

*zips out to send e-mails*

You have far more discipline than I, DJT.

Gee El, thanks for telling me where we moved - NOT!

Damn, I almost said: "Insert obvious "Cowboys in the Closet" "Brokeback Mountain" reference here". That would have been spooky, Blue!

the addy bar on the top of this page says..

*falls another rung on current level*

Jeff, do you see just 2 minutes before your snarky post to me I said I was zipping out to send e-mails, which normally include YOU!

Don't you go gettin' uppity now that you have high speed!

*zips out to take a pain pill*
Then I'll send e-mails - sheesh!

Burned out.

*enters and unpacks new box of innuendos*

*hands sly box*
Sly, please take mine. I don't want it, it makes life too confusing, especially when I don't understand what I've said.

Partner, if you're still here - kudos for thinking to modify Huey - whew!
Could have been a serious problem!

And in other important news, I found a ripe avocado and some cottage cheese in the fridge - LUNCH!!!

OK, I'll go send the e-mails now. Really. I just have one small RL thing to do first. It'll just take a minute. Really.

Possible PROGRAMMING NOTE or vicious rumour: RBR may be on Craig Ferguson's show Friday night.

Oh. I just noticed the original date on this thread. My birthday.

I feel so strangely honored.

Dave is a guest on on Friday night's show, and Craig will be playing with the RBRs.

Did anybody catch the interview with Craig on Monday's "Fresh Air"?

Ha! You thought you could hide, but I found you anyway.


And it's an article from the SLTrib! I feel strangely honored as well, even if the Trib was founded by anti-Mormons and was an outlet for their propaganda in the mid to late 19th century. It has since been bought by a larger newspaper company and no longer has anti-Mormon ties.

I used to have some anti-Mormon ties. But I got rid of most of them when we went business casual at work.

Link to the interview I was talking about.

*wonders exactly what an anti-Mormon tie would look like*

They weren't bowties were they? Cause bowties make people (except for academics) look either stupid, pompous, or both (Tucker Carlson)

um, Leetie.. scroll over your "glove" id. yer l's in the wrong place!

Posted by: cyn | 10:53 AM on April 26, 2006

Cyn, the "leetie" on myspace was already taken, so I chose an anagram that Doug (King Wikipeekawhatever) came up with eons ago. AND, the person who got the "leetie" on myspace happens to also be from Fairfax, VA. *shudder* I might need a new moniker.



*removes CD from computer and throws across the room*

I have got to start labeling these things. My good friend actually gave me a mixed CD with "Copacabana 2005" on it!

*gets out emergency brain bleach and puts in a tribal house CD from someone I know won't sneak something silly in*

DJT...just how good a friend was it?

DJT - that would be admissable evidence to your defense against the homicide charges - don't throw it too far!

Is it just me or does the word "innuendo" have a lot of innuendo about it?

Susan - Unfortunately, one of my oldest and dearest DJ friends, I've known him for over 23 years now. I have about 50 of his CD's, all unmarked. That one now has a skull & crossbones on it ;)

Maybe if everyone shows up I won't have to send e-mails. *sigh*

OK, I'm going now.

I'm listening to the Goo Goo Dolls:

I want to wake up where you are, I won't say anything at all..

I know I've posted that before but that line just gets to me.

Copacabana 2005 is SO last year!

Kibby *smooches* thanks for the origins of Blog butter post. I mentioned the Britney DNA recently, but noone seemed to care so I dumped the experiment off into the MOAT. I think that might explain the belly shirt and new hairdo on Fluffy.

No jury in the land would convict you, Tony.

I'm watching the Milan-Barcelona football game live. The score is 0-0 and the game is very exciting. Força Barça!!! Oé oé oé! (In BCN we don't say "olé".)

I'll be posting the map in a minute.


Before I saw Wolfie's "give me a ho", I'd already bookmarked this as the Buff Moat.. well, if I'd put Buffalo, there wouldn't have been space on my toolbar (I have too many bookmarks there already!)

Jeff.. I think once we got to Iceland and Azerbaijan, the whole "only taking over Europe" thing was cast aside as the joke it really was. This is one-world government at its finest, and it's being run by US!! (NOT the U.S.)

Meanie.. Are you interested in a reciprocal visiting rights negotiation between Tahiti and Bora Bora?

Laynie.. sorry to disappoint you, but George wasn't at Lake Como last night. He was in the Moat with me and Tom Selleck. I think you met George's cousin Melvin. The look is similar, but the wit and charm don't really hold up. However he is hung like an donkey/elephant hybrid, so you probably had fun, anyway.

Tamara.. I'm the Semi-Benevolent Dictator of Brazil. You and TKB are welcome to be monarchs in all your glory and brilliance.

Every time someone types Kaz, talking about whatshisname Kazmir, it takes me a second to realise it's (once again) not all about me. So when I saw the sentence "Kaz has some control issues" I thought "How does Jeff know that?" .. perhaps I've said too much..

Tamara.. I'm Melancholy, too.. (warning on the first link...)

Has anyone directed SSA to the Y yet?

I wonder if that's going to be replayed over here soon? I'd love to see Barca knock out AC Milan.

Wow, just finished watching "Growing Up Tamara" on the old MOAT. She was so cute when she was little!

And yes, you're still cute, Tam. In a more grown up way fitting of the Queen of Brazil.

Right. It's done, the map is on the Y.

As an added bonus, I posted a picture of our PowerPoint channel. You guys thought I was kidding about that, didn't you?

Thanks for mentioning it Mad. As a mini-moderator of the Y site, I can send her an invitation, if I have her e-mail addy.
*zips out to czech*

*still planning to send e-mails*

because of the font I'm using, where it says "Buff Moat" on my toolbar, it looks like "Butt Moat"

Either way is good for me.

Great flyin' furballs! Y'all moved while I was trying to do 2.5 days worth of heinzing. But I posted a couple of comments on the end of the last thread, in case anyone's interested.

As for today...

Neo, how far are you from Pella? I have an old client I would love to see (only met by phone and I am just too lazy to look it up right now), but (before/after) I meet you, I would like to go there.

Posted by: BigD® | 12:42 AM on April 26, 2006

Do you mean Pella, Iowa? I don't live far from there! Central College is there! Can I meet you, too? Please please please please pleeeeeeze?

wolfie - don't know the movie, but Robin Williams plays Teddy Roosevelt. (I think - I saw him on Leno.)

MiK - if we're handing out states, could I please have Iowa? I really don't think anyone else wants it and besides, I want to be able to control the grain market.


Lab, we are beating the crap out of Milan. Our goalie, Valdés, is blocking them left, right and center.

This is the first time I've seen Milan pl --- WHOOHOOOO HE BLOCKED ANOTHER ONE! SUCK ON THAT, INZAGHI!!!

*ahem* Where was I? Oh yeah, this is the first time I've seen Milan play, and while they aren't giving up without a fight, they're still not as impressive as I thought they would be.

Some of you may be unaware that the first place I lived in Barcelona was a block from the Camp Nou (the Barça's stadium). I could see it from my bedroom window if I craned my neck far enough to the right.

Thanks, KDF. ;)

I am about to go read through the emails from back when STBX and I were "courting"--six years ago--because I don't really remember that time period, and I want to compare Then Me to Now Me and dating STBX to dating TKB. *takes a deep breath, bites lip* I'm goin' in!

Kaf & all benevolent despots - welcome to Bora Bora and Moorea anytime. Do you know the maitres' d at the good restaurants in Papeete? I can steer you to at least one hidden one in the Bora Bora jungle.


March 11, 2000:

Just promise me that even if the romantic infatuation should wear off--- which I don't see THAT happening anytime soon--- that we will remain friends no matter what. You're one of the best--- if not THE best-- friends I've ever had.

Thank you for being there for me.



Tamara.. you have 6 years worth of emails on your computer??

Toodles.. work calls!

I've had the same hotmail account since 1996. :)

*hits Tamara with sock-full-o-nickels™*

Enough with the over-analysis. Laissez le bon temps roulez and see where it goes!

*remembers that he is a guy, and that he doesn't have that over-analysis gene*

Tamara darlin'

You need to move forward to the present. This isn't doing you any good.
Step 1 was coming here to the new MOAT.
Step 2 would be to stop reading that junk and focus on what you're going to wear on your next date with TKB!

No, I haven't sent them yet - sheesh, stop nagging me.

I've had mine for ages as well, though I no longer remember when I opened it.

I didn't remember what the emails were like. Hadn't read most of them in years.

Feeling amazingly sad. But I don't want to repeat my mistakes with STBX, and so this review feels necessary.

Oh, and I'm already dressed for my date. ;)

*tearing hair out*
will somebody PLease tell me what's going on??

Leetie.. bummer. (want i should shoot `er?)

Cyn - The same stuff as usual, why the confusion?

OK, I'm gone. Gonna watch the last minutes of the game and then go to the doctor's.


STBX : email :: TKB : real life

Ten dozen points to TKB!

Tamera, please stay in the moment. you are dealing with a lot of emotions right now.
maybe try the old trick of writing the good stuff (about STBX) in the right hand column, and the bad points in the right. when you're having a weak moment.. read those lists!

Hey, d'you guys ever notice I'm kinda stubborn?... ;)

I was going to tell TRWC to stop the mental masturbation, but then I thought that it'd just go ignored like the rest of our good advice.

And from the snarky department:

"Oh, and I'm already dressed for our date"

Response - yes, you rarely take off your birthday suit!

*reaches out with his right hand, undoes one more button on Tamara's top*

*simultanously kicks the power supply for her computer out with his left foot*

Get out there and live a little!

Jeff, do you see just 2 minutes before your snarky post to me I said I was zipping out to send e-mails, which normally include YOU!

Don't you go gettin' uppity now that you have high speed!

*zips out to take a pain pill*
Then I'll send e-mails - sheesh!

(*let's see - was 2:17, now 4:22. STILL WAITING!*)

Posted by: Eleanor | 02:17 PM on April 26, 2006

Higgy, I don't like snark, and if I catch much more of it, I'm leaving the moat, and I fricking MEAN IT, PEOPLE! I'm my own worst critic, and I take every criticism personally.

That said, I know you didn't really mean it snarkily, Higgy. *smooches*

Tamara, STOP IT NOW. (And mind you, I also overanalyze everything to death and then kill it some more.)

Even if your behavior/feelings/somersault competitions/e-mails are similar now to what they were with STBX, it doesn't matter. They are different people.

I'm repeating that.

They're different people.

Any scientist will tell you that a study is not valid if more than one variable is changed. And you're talking gazillions of personality traits, different chemistry between the two of you, different age and experience from your end, motherhood vs. premotherhood...

So stop! This study is invalid!

And, not that you asked, but I think you should delete the damn e-mails. They're making you sad. And think how good it will feel to electronically move on with your life.

*smooches TRWC's forehead, uncaps her a Sammy, puts something salsa-y on the MOAT CD player*

We have to learn from our mistakes. Not reading the emails is like saying we shouldn't read history books.

Anyway, I am done reading them for now. I had some initial sadness, but right now I'm actually feeling kinda good. I'm remembering that I don't have to settle because it's not so hard to find people who can love me. :)
