Interested blog readers may want to watch the TODAY show tomorrow morning. No promises, but heavy suspicions...

Damn. Lula - you are the person. I conceed.

Yay! My first 'first'. What a day.

The Today show tomorrow?

Anyone else find that amusing?


I must be tired.

I probably won't find it amusing until tomorrow.

But if judi already knows what is going to be on, then that means the "Today" show is taped, and it's really yesterday. So if you watch the today show tomorrow then you'll really be watching today, but just tomorrow!

Truly you have a dizzying intellect.


you're gonna be on tv!

Are you mocking me, cbol?

But if the day after today is tomorrow and I'm watching Today, which is really today, but will be Yesterday tomorrow, I'll still be watching today tomorrow.

Wait 'til he gets going!

I am NOT mocking you Punky. I thought you liked the Princess Bride?

Plus a hampster typed that last post. Nothing I can do about it, it's part of my probation agreement.

What the hell is a hamPster?

Buttercup to Wesley: "You mock my pain"

Hence the "mock" comment ... get it? (wink, wink, nudge, nudge)

psst ... do you EVER check your email?!

You mocked Punky once. Never do it again. She died that day?

As you wish?

my name is inigo montoya. you killed my father. prepare to be on the today show.

*waiting for the Dread Pirate Roberts to show up*

HA! I've always spelled it hampster. No wonder the people at the Rodent Club for National Spelling Bee Semi-Finalists look on me with such disdain. That I'm always juggling flaming rats.

Too fast for me on the "mock" comment. I'll go directly to jail, not pass go, but I plan on buttering someone in St. James' Place on the way, dammit.

It would take a miracle.

Hampster - n. A place for storing dirty laundry and small furry creatures.

Where do you store rodents of unusual size?

He died well, that should please you. No bribe attempts or blubbering. He simply said please, please, I need to live. It was the please that caught my memory. I asked what was so important for him; 'True love' he replied. And then he spoke of a girl of surpassing beauty and faithfulness...I can only assume he meant you. You should bless me for destroying him before he found out what you really are.... A Hampster

Punky-pssst:use the yahoo one.


You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Then we are at an impasse!

You are a WONDERFUL swordsman! I hate to kill you.

You are a wonderful swordsman. I hate to die.

I hope this isn't Judi's way of getting us to tune in to see more naked men, especially if the man in question is Al Roker... or Barry Manilow.

Or maybe Barry will be singing; it is Friday, right?

You've reached your decision then?


"...So bow to her if you like. Bow to her. Bow to the queen of slime, the queen of filth, the queen of putresence! Boo! Boo! Rubish! Filth! Slime! Muck! Boo! Boo! BOO!!"

haha I love that part!

"I'm going to kill myself"
"Won't that be nice....She kissed me!"

Is this a Kissing book?

Damn, I missed this conversation. I've been mostly dead all day.

Now if we only had a wheelbarrow, that would be something

After all this online swordplay, it probably wouldn't be wise for me to note that Dave has agreed to wear a Pirate Shirt on the Today Show...

What I wouldn't give for a holocaust cloak.....

Either a) judi's on the Today Show (which I wouldn't know unless I watched from the beginning, which I won't because I have a college class then, because I've never actually seen what judi looks like), b) they tracked down Dave in Athens, or c) judi is evil and we're going to wind up seeing eyeball surgery or somebody's regurgitated meatloaf collection or something.

Is very strange. I have been in the revenge business so long, now that it's over, I don't know what to do with the rest of my life.

Have you ever considered piracy? You'd make a wonderful Dread Pirate Roberts.

cbol ... yahoo. got it.

I've seen worse.

Bye Judy!

Have fun storming the Today Show!

It’s got to be Dave, because tomorrows show is on Greece and the Olympics and the men’s marathon. But dang it, I don’t know if I can get out of bed at 7 am. but I can try it. Again.

Oh man! I hope it's me!

we are men of action lies do not become us

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders! The first is never get involved in a land war in Asia.

I am not left handed.

Life is pain, Highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something.

Bow chicka bow bow

*Westley looks around Fire Swamp*

W: It's not so bad ...

*Buttercup looks at Westley like he is on crack*

W: Well, I'm not saying I'd want to build a summer home here ... but the tress really are quite lovely.

Killed by pirates is good.

And by the way CHRISTOBOL....it goes like this...

"You seem a decent fellow. I hate to kill you."

"You seem a decent fellow. I hate to die."

I give you my word as a Spaniard.

Vizzini: Let me put it this way: Have you ever heard or Plato, Aristotle, Socrates?
Man in black: Yes.
Vizzini: Morons!
Man in black: Really! In that case, I challenge you to a battle of wits.
Vizzini: For the princess? To the death? I accept!
Man in black: Good, then pour the wine. [Vizzini pours the wine] Inhale this but do not touch.
Vizzini: [taking a vial from the Man in black] I smell nothing.
Man in black: What you do not smell is Iocaine powder. It is odorless, tasteless, and dissolves instantly in liquid and is among the more deadly poisons known to man.
Vizzini: [shrugs with laughter] Hmmm.
Man in black: [turning his back, and adding the poison to one of the goblets] Alright, where is the poison? The battle of wits has begun. It ends when you decide and we both drink - and find out who is right, and who is dead.
Vizzini: But it's so simple. All I have to do is divine it from what I know of you. Are you the sort of man who would put the poison into his own goblet or his enemies? Now, a clever man would put the poison into his own goblet because he would know that only a great fool would reach for what he was given. I am not a great fool so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you...But you must have known I was not a great fool; you would have counted on it, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.
Man in black: You've made your decision then?
Vizzini: [happily] Not remotely! Because Iocaine comes from Australia. As everyone knows, Australia is entirely peopled with criminals. And criminals are used to having people not trust them, as you are not trusted by me. So, I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you.
Man in black: Truly, you have a dizzying intellect.
Vizzini: Wait 'till I get going!! ...where was I?
Man in black: Australia.
Vizzini: Yes! Australia! And you must have suspected I would have known the powder's origin,so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me.
Man in black: You're just stalling now.
Vizzini: You'd like to think that, wouldn't you! You've beaten my giant, which means you're exceptionally strong...so you could have put the poison in your own goblet trusting on your strength to save you, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you. But, you've also bested my Spaniard, which means you must have studied...and in studying you must have learned that Man is mortal so you would have put the poison as far from yourself as possible, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me!
Man in black: You're trying to trick me into giving away something. It won't work.
Vizzini: It has worked! You've given everything away! I know where the poison is!
Man in black: Then make your choice.
Vizzini: I will, and I choose...[pointing behind the Man in black] What in the world can that be?
Man in black: [turning around, while Vizzini switches goblets] What?! Where?! I don't see anything.
Vizzini: Oh, well, I...I could have sworn I saw something. No matter. [Vizzini laughs]
Man in black: What's so funny?
Vizzini: I...I'll tell you in a minute. First, lets drink, me from my glass and you from yours. [They both drink]
Man in black: You guessed wrong.
Vizzini: You only think I guessed wrong! That's what's so funny! I switched glasses when your back was turned! Ha ha, you fool!! You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in Asia; and only slightly less well known is this: Never go in against a Sicilian, when death is on the line!
[Vizzini continues to laugh hysterically. Suddenly, he stops and falls right over. The Man in black removes the blindfold from the princess]
Buttercup: Who are you?
Man in black: I'm no one to be trifled with. That is all you'll ever need know.
Buttercup: And to think, all that time it was your cup that was poisoned.
Man in black: They were both poisoned. I spent the last few years building up immunity to Iocaine powder.

Thanks, Wally


er, that was supposed to read "applause" but apparently, it was taken as an HTML tag.
