Fish, *snork*

MarieP, I felt the same way after one of my "guys" dumped me. I fell into a depression so deep that it was 4 or 5 months before I even had the energy to realize that I was depressed. It scared me.

I allowed myself one day to just wallow in it. I listened to music in the dark and cried. Then I mentally walked away from him.

Then the next man who showed interest, I threw myself at him. He was wrong wrong wrong and everyone but me saw it. And told me. Repeatedly. But (as I can see now) I needed to reassure myself that I was desirable.

It took only one month before I knew that relationship was doomed, but it took me another 8 months to get up the courage (and to get so fed up with him that I wanted to scream) to get out of Dodge. What a disaster.

Learn from my mistakes, Marie. I sure didn't! But, you know, it wasn't until I finally realized that I didn't care if there was a man in my life and really didn't want one--that is when I met Tom. I've heard that before but didn't believe it. But that's how it happened for me. Once I was totally comfortable with myself and content to do without a man in my life, and I mean within a month of realizing that, that is when it happened.

Don't think that it's your fault. This was HIS problem. Unfortunately he let you participate in his fantasy and he just wasn't available. He should have known better.

Want my daddy's friend to go after him? This man, just a couple of months after having surgery for testicular cancer, offered just that when my first marriage fell apart. You just have to love someone like that.

El: you definitely should!

"Spam doth not a martini make." Have truer words ever been spoken?

Never Lab!

I'm going to embroider that on a pillow. I've been thinking about taking up needlepoint!

As if!

The Wench does great embroidery. She learned it from her grandfather, if I remember correctly.

{Rita} if only there wasn't that freaking clock ticking louder and louder... maybe I could stop waiting for Mr Funny and then meet someone...
Some days I really wish I were a man.

Spam martini?



Yom Kippur, as explained by Albertsons grocery store! And quite well done, too.
But it was funny to get in an e-mail about their weekly specials. :)

I did have the advantage of having my clock permanently stopped before I met Tom.

If I were a man, it would be my luck that I'd be gay.

(NTT-- oh, you know)

For MarieP

*rolls over in cave, scratches hairy leg, goes back to sleep*


That really sucks. It's his loss! You are a beautiful, amazing woman.

For Rita

"I was talking to the duck."

*wonders why, when she clicked on Lab's link, a box came up asking if she wanted to see it in Hebrew*



Dave and Ridley are doing the book reading in Fla.
at 9am - reading at 9:25? anyone know how to hear it in san diego?

The doctor replies, "The problem is clear to me. You're not eating right!"

here are all the links again:


Dave and Ridley will be in Orlando tomorrow (Thursday) morning, reading with the Governor and a lot of Florida's schoolkids, in an attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records Simultaneous Read-Aloud record. They're reading an excerpt of Dave and Ridley's book "Peter and the Starcatchers" -- in unison :)

Just in case you might want to tune in, it starts at 11 (the reading will be at approx. 11:25 EASTERN time) and the webcast links are on this page: http://www.floridaknowledgenetwork.org/Reading.htm

Step 1: Make sure you are in San Diego.
Step 2: Time travel back to 9:25 AM EDT.

9 san diego time

Oh. That wasn't there when I posted.

Modified step 2: Time travel back to 11:25 AM EDT.

Try "Read Aloud Webcast"

ah shaddap TY, darlin'!

now, seriously?

No thanks, Lab. I had one of those many years ago and decided I'd rather scrape my legs with a razor blade than yank the hairs out by the roots.

11:00 AM EDT = 8:00 AM PDT

Drat! I forgot about the reading.

Warning...there may be a bunch of long songs today at noon.

Of the 5 interviews needed for football Fridays...that were to be done by yesterday...one has been done. 15 minutes ago. The others are being lined up.

And I have to record all but one in the other studio.

Timing is soooo good around here.

*not clicking on the link for Rita*

*snicker* TY Really!

Fortunately I just "moused over" and saw where the link went and opted out.

I can tell Susan.

Starting with American Pie. :)

How about Bohemian Rhapsody?
We Didn't Start the Fire.

This is a great song. *sobs*

or not
*sigh* missed it

In-a-gadda-da-vida. *snicker*

Jethro Tull's "Thick as a Brick". There's a good 40 minutes for ya.

too true ovah heah
i'll just trudge on, now
no, don't try to stop me
it's better this way

*giggle* Too bad I don't have that version of "Thick as a Brick".

And I did In-a-gadda-etc the other day.

I just looooooooooove doing the interviews at noon.

In the other studio.

Lab, you're two tents.

The moral of the story is: Don't count your lesions before you scratch.

Abbott and Costello
You know the trouble with you? Your brain is two tenths.

My brain is too tense?

Yeah - two tenths the size of a normal brain!

Prisoner 1: 'What are you in for?'
Prisoner 2: 'Assualt with dead dog.'

and no I havent sent in the ass in a box thing. if anyone wants to, feel free.

Alice's Restaurant.

"No, I'm sorry", replied the bartender, "it's a hickory daiquiri, Doc."

Oooh...Alice's Restaurant! Haven't heard that in ages.

I plan to play it Thanksgiving day...

All but one of the interviews done.

And the one I wanted to do in the main studio? I didn't find out who it was til I started recording...in the production room.

All of these were of course originally to be done by Tuesday.

That has not happened.

Well, once.

Last week, when some people went to Texas.

They left Tuesday morning...returned Friday.

Oh well...they are done...except for the editing.

And I don't have any meetings or anything tonight!

To make my daughter happy, we'll have her favorite for supper. Chinese food!

She's still annoyed at me...I finally decided last night (since today was a deadline) that she would not be going to Japan during spring break. One would think I was the most cruel horrible person on the face of the planet for denying her the chance to go...since she's wanted to go since she was, and I quote, 2.

About $2700 for the trip. Close to $100 for the passport and photos. Suggested minimum of $350 spending money. Plus clothes, probably a physical and shots...and who knows what else.


Not happening.

My mother has suggested we go to VA during spring break, Busch Gardens and Williamsburg. I'm neutral at the moment, but I'd have to go to drive.

What? Go on vacation somewhere besides my sisters? Inconceivable!

When's your spring break, Susan? I think ours is the first week of April.

I'm hoping to go to Florida.

*unleashes purple sanity haze into the moat*

Things are just a little to weird today.

MarieP- Don't worry about the ticking Ovaries. Modern science is a wonderful thing. You have at least 10 more years. When you find the one things will move faster than you think.

Geh! Sanity be gone!
*turns on the vent*

Lab, check your calendar. "Punchline to Stupid Jokes" is another day.

Lab, check your calendar. It's Ask A Stupid Question - singular, not plural - Day".

... but apparently you can ask another one on Saturday ...

Would you all like to bite me?

THAT's better.

I think

No thanks, I have enough problems without worrying about rabies, or tetanus. :)

But I'll *smooch* ya.

My vote today for best/worst stupid question is the Blue Orange one.

*hangs shiny things all around the moat*

Bangi's streakin' thru the M0AT ====>

If a turtle doesn't have a shell, is he homeless or naked?

"If word gets out, EVERYONE will want an extra pancreas."

Could Jesus microwave a burrito so hot that He himself could not eat it?

-Homer Simpson

only if it's served with coconut milk, garlic, red chilies, belacan, lemongrass, galangal root and turmeric.

if it's not then it's not worth having any extras.

If a new drug were developed that would cure your terminal illness, but make you look like Michael Jackson, would you take it?

Would you rather be extremely happy but not know it, or extremely miserable but not care?

Would you add a year to your life if it meant taking away a year from another person's life? (What if the other person was Paris Hilton?)

No. Coin-flip. No. Not even then.

Will I see you tonight on a downtown train?

who'll stop the rain?

Does anybody really know what time it is?

Does anybody really care?

Have you ever seen the rain?

Is Lab actually soft-hearted, or does he just like Paris Hilton?

do you ever get that . . . not-so-fresh feeling?

if birds can fly over the rainbow, why can't i?

Neither, BB. There is a third option: Life isn't so important that I'd do anything to tack on one more year.

Why do fools fall in love?

how soon is now?

But Lab, what if that were the year that you found out the answer to life, the universe and everything was off by 1?

Where oh where has my little dog gone?

Also.. It's a knick-knack Paddy Whack, give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone

Why do fools fall in love?

That would make it all that much worse, Sly. That would mean that I spent my entire life with the WRONG ANSWER. That would suck.

Can you tell me how to get to Sesame Street? Do you know the way to San Jose?

whats love got to do with it?

Why is El saying the same thing that I'm saying?

If you put a shoe on your head, does it become a hat?

{{{Marie P}}} What everyone else said.

Well, of course it's fiction...

whats the frequency kenneth?

Why do birds suddenly appear, every time you are near?

Good one, Trillian! I'm impressed!

Have you ever heard of R.E.M.?

Because I emulate you Lab.

I thought you knew that.

25 or 6 to 4?

why don't we do it in the road?

hasn't everyone heard of REM?

What becomes of the broken-hearted?

Rapid Eye Movement?


Why can't we not be sober?

Who'd have believed you'd come along?

*starts sobbing*

*another point for Trillian for "Would?"*

Does my butt make these pants look fat?

What are you doing the rest of my life?

If a picture paints a thousand words, then why can't I paint you?

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Lab, take them off and throw them on your lawn. Then it will only be your butt making your butt look fat.

Are you going to Scarborough Fair?

I didn't ask if my butt looked fat, did I?

hey hey what can i do?

*knows the way to San Jose, at least from Provo*

Where have you gone Joe DiMaggio?

nope, I just thought I'd help.

Hello and welcome to (insert govt department name here). How may I help you today?

why don't we get drunk and screw?

What do you do with a drunken sailor?
