Hey, I resemble that remark!

*raises an eyebrow*

Are you calling me nasty, Lab?
I prefer being called Ms. Nastay, thankyouverymuch.

Miss Jackson, if you're nasty?

Ms. Nasty if you're Janet.

I think I just threw up a little.

Lab - 0
DDi - 1

Miss JAnet if your Jackson?

HAHAHAHA!

Mandatory was the requirement for one-liners only.

You, The Labster, should pick the topic.

Get it? :)

for sly's daughter Jenni...

Memorable Quotes from
Five Easy Pieces (1970)
[Bobby wants plain toast, which isn't on the menu]
Bobby: I'd like an omelet, plain, and a chicken salad sandwich on wheat toast, no mayonnaise, no butter, no lettuce. And a cup of coffee.
Waitress: A #2, chicken salad sand. Hold the butter, the lettuce, the mayonnaise, and a cup of coffee. Anything else?
Bobby: Yeah, now all you have to do is hold the chicken, bring me the toast, give me a check for the chicken salad sandwich, and you haven't broken any rules.
Waitress: You want me to hold the chicken, huh?
Bobby: I want you to hold it between your knees.


Did you know that US hogsheads are different from UK hogsheads

TFFTP.

*adds this to Mad's post*
... And that's why he only has three fingers on his left hand!

Ha ha ha ha ha!

Di, you can stop holding my meat, if you'd like.

*tosses Labs meat, like a hot potato, to the right*

*ducks*

*gooses*
*re-blurks*

Well, that was fun. Later, all.

I need to work on my resume. L8R y'all

Whiter 'n sour cream

Hey! Come back here and clean that up!

How sick and twisted is this

In case Deave doesn't post it: the K-Fed doll

THIS ... is twisted.

twist this.

Dammit, Lab!!

*goes to vending machine to get Twizzlers*

Your pop's twisted.

Ooooh are we playing Twister tonight?

Hi. Feeling much better this morning, but not very funny.

I made some blackberry pecan apple pie, hold the meat and cheese, double kippers.

Anyone hungry?

Your sister is twisted

I'm in! Who else wants to play?

I wanna try

I like onions.

I bet I'd like this.

My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard

My whipped ice dairy drink brings the attention of many males to my place of residence and/ or employment, and they declare that its quality far surpasses that of yours. Absolutely, it far surpasses yours. I could convey to you the recipe, but i would have to demand compensation.

*snork* at Lab.

I gues odd, random comments are no longer odd; they're so common they don't even elicit (not illicit) remarks.


*removes pants*

*illicit remark*

*marks*

*remarks*

*muddles mojito*

I just got finished tending to my daughter's butt.

What are you all up to tonight?

Oh, and I left some very satisfying negative feedback on eBay for the Blackberry idiot. Yay!

Why didn't my post post?

Hmm. Perhaps we have the funny sensor/ non-funny censor working at last? It won't let my comment through because it wasn't funny?

Perhaps you dream-posted it?

Dream Poster
I’ve just closed my eyes again
Blindly bored: the dream poster’s refrain
Fisher take away my britches on Friday
And Leets tends her daughter’s behind

Ooh dream poster
Sly, BB, you can make me snork with delight
Ohh dream poster
I believe everything will turn out right.

My missing post just said something to the effect of it'd be more fun to tend bar than to tend butt.

Absolutly.

*snork*

I've been trying to come up with a topper, but I can't.

*tends bar*
*serves up a Bottomer*

I'm NOW getting ready to leave work. Hope I get home in time to watch Men in Trees.

HINT, Neo!!

I used to tend bar. I'm glad no one ever asked for one of these.

I used to go to a bar in L.A. that had an older clientele. They served a drink called a "Rum Runner." It was simple to make. Just rum and prune juice.

If I were to never hear Panic at the Disco EVER again in my LIFE I would be a happy person. Please make it stop! I'm losing a lot of blood out my ears and I'm afraid I'll pass out.

If you have never heard Panic at the Disco, consider your self lucky blessed, and if someone tries to make you listen to it cover your ears and run away screaming. My roommate *gag* LOVES it *gag* and listens to it when she's in the shower. Of course, this means she has to play it loud enough to hear it over the shower, which means it is more than loud enough for me to hear it when I'm in my room with the door shut and headphones on

Never heard Panic at the Disco...

This game is endless. Start of the 4th inning *snork* the Braves are up 49-0.

(Yes, I said inning. There is a woman who calls to get scores for the football and she frequently asks what inning it is.)

Yes, a win for the Braves is good...but games like this just go on and on and on.

And on a different sports note...I've never been one to watch baseball. That could change. Someone left a ball game on the other day. Some of those Blue Jays are kind of cute.

Not that that is a good reason to watch...

Sly, ty for the Men In Trees reminder...I almost forgot to set up the recorder to catch it.

So I'm kinda watching it, but no sound on...I'll watch it tomorrow.

Dang it!! What's happening to my posts?!

I *snickered* at the rum runner, and told BB that the other drink sounded cool. It turns neon green! Of course, my face would turn beet red if I tried to order it.

And Sly, thanks for the heads up. First time I've watched TV in a long time. I kinda like it.

*hits Post - again*

Dang. Almost a shutout...Buford scored in the last 35 seconds....Cheraw won it 55-7.

Watched Men in Trees. It was... eh. But then, I hate TV.

if you hate tv why did you watch it?

also, I started watching it, just cause the rest of you were and I was curious, and I couldn't make it through more than 5 minutes. Got bored.

Ask a Stupid Question Day was yesterday.

BTW did you swat that fly yet?

I think it died during the night, and that wasn't a stupid question. I avoid watching things I hate, like sports movies and football games.

Sarah, since it was about Lab, I think it might qualify.

We might need to fill the MOAT with this next year.

Same as you, SJ. Curious to find out if I'd like it since I like Northern Ex. It's an okay show, but I won't make time to watch it.

Well, I like it.

*sticks tongue out at Lab and Sarah*

Too bad I got home too late to see anymore than the last 15 minutes.

*bites tongue*

*snork*

My own tongue, not sly's.

Leets, please don't bite sly's tongue.

I don't think that anybody should be made to feel bad about something they like.

Didn't we just have such a conversation?

Sorry, Leets, I didn't mean to make you feel bad. Go ahead and bite sly's tongue.

Thank you, BB, but sly might think that I am too icky to bite her tongue.

I find that hard to believe. After all, she carries your giant head around in the back seat of her car.

I'm sorry if I made someone feel badly. I watched the show based on Sly's (and perhaps others... no... just my friend Sly's) recommendation. But I didn't latch on to it. It was ok, like I said, but it wasn't for me. Then again, I've only liked about 12 TV shows ever. What were the chances?

I understand that I'm an odd-ball. I'm okay with that.

I'm glad the cam was working. Next year instead of a Giant Leetie Head making the strumpeting tour, we'll send out the poster of Leetie biting Sly's tongue.

I watched Men in Trees. Dang, you guys weren't kidding about a lot of similarities to Northern Exposure! I'm glad you guys clued me in to the show. I'll likely only get to see it on the weeks the kids are at their dads, but I think I'm going to like it. So thanks.

OMGosh!

We haven't had a gas price update in a while.

So, what is the price where you all live?

Really? Gosh. That's low.

But (topper alert) I'll bet I've got you beat.

Somebody ask how much gas cost here this afternoon! C'mon. Somebody ask.

neo, why wait for the tour?

um...neo, what're they getting for gas there?

Good point, BB. We'll post the poster at the gas station.

And speaking of gas stations, thanks for asking about the price of gas.

It was ....


FREE!

A gimmick for a radio station. A gas station gave away free gas to anybody who came in... for an hour and a half. It cost the radio station something like $15,000.

(Thanks For Asking, BB! *smooch!*)

OH YEAH? Well they pay us to get gas here! Neener!

*sulks away*

*giggles*
Come back, BB! Don't sulk. I'll even stop smooching. Come back!

Will you give me some gas?

oh woh may me fee bah abou washing meh eh twees.

*loves Sly some ice for her tongue*

Beebs, you bet! My cooking will give anybody gas!

Utah's average gas price has been third highest in the US all month, after Alaska and Hawaii, with an average of $2.78/gal, but it's been higher in Utah County, more like $2.92. The governor's been working on an investigation for the past couple of weeks, but no news yet what the deal is, except that retailers say it isn't their fault. So no complaining about gas prices unless you live in Hawaii or Alaska.

*still thinking about washing men in trees*

*imagines it's sort of a combination of a wet t-shirt contest with lumberjacks*

*gets distracted imagining the smell of wet flannel*

An enjoyable night of television can help keep your mind from dwelling about every day worries; such as the high price of gas.

You're right sly. I'm enjoying watching the Giants beat the Dodgers right now.

That's why I was watching DVDs of House season 2. YAY! for the redbox!!

My roommates are watching a sports movie with their boyfriends in the living room. I hate sports movies, so I'm watching House in my room.

Regarding complaining about gas:

Europeans have told Americans we don't have the right to complain about the price of gas as they pay much more than any of us. There are those who say that since we pay more for bottled water (per unit) than we do for gas, we don't have the right to complain.

Well, I don't buy as much bottled water as I do gas; AND when the price of gas rises above what I "normally" pay and throws my budget out of whack, I will complain. Strongly.

When my parent's started paying less for gas in San Jose than I do in Provo I started to be very confused. Everything else is cheaper here, with the exception of artichokes ($2.80 each ON SALE? Outrageous!) and seafood (which I'm lucky to find at all, raw scallops never and raw shrimp occasionally, people in Provo eat a lot of prepared and pre-packaged food and finding normal ingredients can be difficult) so why is gas so high? And why is it taking so long to figure out the problem and fix it?
/rant

Maybe because the people responsible for determining the price don't think it's a problem.

I'm tired. Why am I still up at almost 1:00? Oh never mind; stupid question day is long over. Night, moat!

G'night, Neo!!

I haven't bitten any tongues or tended any butts today (please don't ask about the preceding 5 days.. we're ignoring the fact that butt-tending features heavily in my job of choice...)

However, I'm settling in for the evening with a Killer Coffee - anyone want to join me?

In other news to hand, tonight, Daylight Savings Time starts, so we leap forward an hour. I'll be leaping in my sleep, so if you see the hammock rocking or feel what you think is an earthquake, just make sure it's not me before you call Civil Defense.

psssssssst, Neo, according to the Moat calendar, it's Ask A Stupid Question Day, redux.

Or regoose, for those who choose.

Why is everyone still asleep?

*zips in*

Or San Diego, Sarah. Gas is much higher here than in Los Angeles, no one knows why, but I noticed it was down to $2.69 the other day, which is way cheaper than the $2.99 I thought was cheaper last week. :(

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

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

And - in other news, I get an e-mail with headlines, etc from the NYTimes every day, and they also have one of these:

QUOTATION OF THE DAY
"I'm a big fan. I know it can be abused. But if used properly, along with other punishments, a few pops can help turn a school around. It's had a huge effect here."
ANTHONY PRICE, a middle school principal, on the corporal punishment he recently reinstated.


I just reread my quote.

So he wants to give the school "a few pops"?

And he thinks that will make the students behave?

*having fun posting with myself*

Posting with yourself too much can cause blindness and hair to grow on your mouse.
