ATTENTION, CHICAGO

The World Famous In Some Areas Rock Bottom Remainders will be performing tonight live -- at least most of us are alive -- at the House of Blues. Although, to be honest, we do not truly have the blues. The most we have is somewhere in the range of the turquoises. But you should come out anyway because it's for a good cause.

D@mn BLUE! that was good tequila you just made me waste!

I think we're on the same page, S-Girl. Say, would you mind reaching me the soap?

...What?

*silly, but happy grin*

Oops. Please allow me to make things right.

*vents*

*soaps*

Me too, sg

Random KIlties

Winnie.

Winnie being silly.

Winnie and Christopher Robin.

Well, Blue, when you put it that way....

Got limes and salt?

Seven? Seven is just getting started! ( I have witnesses, who might rememnber better than I do)

amnd themn can spbell bette tu

I think this is what you're looking for, El. Or maybe I shouldn't have gone ahead with the shots first?

*Sneaks ASK's car keys away*

Blue, you driving? I thought we were folding laundry!

*recalls the last time Blue drove - is all for the idea*

nOT GoNna drIVe NoW. jusT KeEpInG ThE peDEstRIanS SAFe.

#HitS -hic- sacK#

Hapee Burthdey.

*grabs Blue's car keys, ASK's keys, the bottle and zips out*

you can have the car - but why'd ya take the bottle?

I was the first, so let me be tha last to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY KAY!

*grins*

Thank you. Better than cake.

geez, ya leave for 5 or 30 minutes, and ya miss everything.

but i don't think ASK is a "seventh tequila" kinda guy. i think he's a true cajun. or somethin like that.

*heads for the door*

*peeks out*

um, guys? we have cars, but no keys.
and thirst, but no rum.

oh, the humanity!!!(not O. the(umanity))

O. the U(manity)

damn.

see what happens when the rum is gone?

I'll bake you a cake later - busy folding towels right now.

The things we do for love.

*adds the 10cc song to karaoke list*

My karaoke sentiment of the evening, courtesy of Maria and Tony:

♪ Goodnight, goodnight. Sleep well, and when you dream, dream of me. Goodnight! ♫

Well, if you all are gonna sleep, guess I will too.

*unfolds sheets for couch*

Ah. That was the image I was trying to find. It's all about the right keyword. :-)

G'night!

*hopes Bumble won't mind if I dream of someone else*

I do love West Side Story, though.

Oh, ye gods. I go out for ONE evening, and some major Kilt-action happens! I missed the fight about towels!! I missed the b-day cake! I missed neo!!!

AND I missed the rum.

Sheesh.

Oh, and just for the record...I fold my towels completely wrong, and I know it. I'm okay with that.

.......But NO ONE had better mess up the way I have my books organized on my shelves (both alphabetically AND by subject). We each have our own little OCD quirks, I guess.

*puts his 2 cents in about folding towels*

huh!? fold? HA!

*goes to heinz to see what the "huh!?" was about*

southerngirl~ At least you're not older than Uncle O. ;-)

Or Blue for that matter, and maybe not Kibby or sly either, but I don't know.

Scarey!

*vent, soap, rinse and repeat as necessary*

*hoses down the Kilt*

*distributes towels*

NEW RULE: Kilties will take turns doing laundry. Each Kiltie is responsible for his/her own towel storage. All folding styles are acceptable, except for the scrunch-up-and-throw-it-on-the-floor technique, which will not be tolerated.

Punishment for SUATIOTF technique: Beverage docking, as well as Moldy Towels, which might just BAGNFARB.

How could anyone not love West Side Story? One of Shakespeare's best works.

I hope I find my car keys soon. That was such a long walk to work.

I am hoping that THIS will encourage compliance with the new rule.

*thwaps kdf with her towel*

do we need an acronym page for the kilt? along with a glossary of terms?

no, blue, that's just too dang complicated. i say fold em in half, then in half again, and be done with it.

just don't throw 'em on the floor, cuz KDF's gonna be on your case if ya do.

and put the seat down. ;P

Let me see if I can get this down here.

*Folds over lengthwise*
*Folds over widthwise*
*Puts towel down on seat*

Now how the heck am I supposed to, you know..., this way?

i don't know, blue...sounds like a personal problem to me. ;)

I'll bet if they retitled the "Lobster" fold to a "Crawfish/Crayfish" (I'm leaving that one for you guys to sort out) fold, you would go for it, S-Girl.

Then you could suck on your towels.

(Hee hee, etc.....)

see what happens when the rum is gone?

Posted by: southerngirl | 12:08 AM on October 26, 2006

Yeah.

Sobriety breaks out, all over the kilt ...

(Sobriety? Here? HAR!)

nah, i'd rather suck on a head.

a craWfish head. geez. ;)

O. the U, what is this "sobriety" of which you speak?

*high fives sg*

*also, thwaps back*

Yes to the glossary. To include references to time travel, the pudding pit, being shicked, anorking, assorted furniture, chains, why craWfish is just wrong, true cajuns, NEW ROADS!, breakfast menu suggestions, beverage recipes, and of course, detailed directions and a map to Halfway. And a song list.

Dunno s-girl, but I think it has to do with that demure thing we were discussing earlier.

NEW RULE:

??

There are rules? eek.

We need something to break, don't we?

*hopes Bumble won't mind if I dream of someone else*

Posted by: ASK, the CD | 12:43 AM on October 26, 2006

I do love West Side Story, though.

Posted by: ASK, the CD | 12:44 AM on October 26, 2006

Feel free to dream of others, ASK. I won't try to stop you. :-) And yes, West Side Story is great.

We each have our own little OCD quirks, I guess.

*prepares to 'fess up*

My DVD collection is categorized by film company; MGM, Touchstone, Universal, WB, Disney, etc. The DVDs are arranged alphabetically within those categories. I do this not b/c it makes them easier to find (because unless you remember who made all of them, it doesn't) but because I think it looks better to have all the little identical logos lined up together.

/confession

*quietly folds her fluffy blue towel*

Bumble. Your supposed to watch the DVDs, not the cases. Just sayin'.

Bumble. Your supposed to watch the DVDs, not the cases. Just sayin'.

Proxy errors! Robots! Run for your lives!!!

Bumble--you win. My DVD's are sorta jumbled together in my entertainment center cabinet where I don't have to look at them. I vaguely "organize" them by actor: I have my "Will Smith" collection, my "Sean Bean" collection, my "Hugh Jackman" collection.... That way, if I have an urge to see a particular hottie, I know just where to go.

(Tee hee, I said "urge").

Sorry, Blue...I stole the robot's halo a little while ago and It's been acting evil ever since. My bad.

*removes extra apostrophe in above post and drops it in the soup*

They add flavor and zest, you know.

We're talking about alphabet soup, right?

except for the scrunch-up-and-throw-it-on-the-floor technique, which will not be tolerated.

CRAP!

*takes towelie and sulks to his bedroom*

Punishment for SUATIOTF technique: Beverage docking, as well as Moldy Towels, which might just BAGNFARB.

Reads: Punishment for SUATIOTF technique: Beaver docking, ...

WHAT!?

*rubs eyes and re-reads*

d@mn

Beaver docking? That's a punishment... how?

That's a punishment kibby was considering to sign-up for....

Who's got the whipped cream?

*zips in*

I am *snorking*, *anorking*, *ROFLing*, *LMAOing* and spewing my coffee.

Why?

Glad you asked.

Because Bumble definitely wins the Organization Prize with an extra bonus for the reason - having the logos together. Priceless!

I don't have enough DVDs to call it a collection and the ones I do have are scattered in different places around the house....*pouts*

****************************
Addendum: I'm trying to post this for the THIRD time because I keep getting PROXY ERROR

WTD???

SEE!

I told you this would happen...

El it has now posted four times.

*wonders what the four prizes and extra bonuses are*

I used to buy myself a new DVD as a reward every time I got an A on a test. My finite math prof knew this, and she used to tell me I got to go to Best Buy when she passed back tests. :-)

Anyway, I can't afford to do it anymore, so this year I’m only buying a new DVD for every time I get an A on the most recent test in all four classes. I've only had one round of tests so far this year, and it was only three out of four, but I had my second calc test Monday and I've got my second tests in my other three subjects next week, so cross your fingers! :-)

I'm just lucky if my DVD's are in the right case.

*snork*

Me too, sly. Although the worst thing is opening a case and having it be EMPTY!

How does that even happen? And no, it's not in the player...

I myself organize my DVDs in order of company as well. Only I use the age of the film as well.
I suppose no one else here has a silent film collection. Or a Humphrey Bogart collection.

The above was my comment about my silent film collection

I figured it would be There is silent Films
*The actor is suprised*
They are on the shelf
*Actor walkes to the shelf and is horrified*
Some Amazing filmsa re silent
*Actor reels back from the shelf as if it where a monster*
It is just like watching Foreign films without subtitles
*Actor takes out sword and flies away*
I have several of both
*Actress appears she seems afraid*
There is a fine selection
*Actress is suddenly picked up by actor while he is flying*
Very visual but really doesn't make sense
*Actor and actress share kiss and then she turns to skeleton*
Then End

stop

now?

when i preview, it shows that it's fixed. what's up with that?


I hope this works. I apologise for causing italics.

For Alfred

(and sharon)

Hey, folks. Punkin and I have had a little off-blog dialogue going that was prompted by something I said on the Oklamoma Education Initiative thread. It was about the current state of the main blog, lamenting the absence of many old-time (in the best possible sense) bloglits. We emailed some thoughts to each other, including wondering what we might do about it and that I'd been reluctant to say anything publicly, and then I went to lunch.

Well, while I was out she took the bull by the horns a bit, and has expressed some of those laments in a couple of comments at that thread, and you might want to check them out. Or add your thoughts.

Just a suggestion, but I hope you'll give it a look.

Thanks, Bumble...those will make the soup even more extra-tasty!

*SNORK!*@ El!!! By the third posting, I was laughing so hard I nearly pulled a stomach muscle. The fourth one did me in entirely.

*loves kibby some whipped cream*

You know, there are places in New York where this stuff is hard to find...so prize it, my friend, and appreciate the bounty of the Kilt. I know I do.

*scrunches up towel*

*tosses it on the floor*

What...? That way I always know where it is.

*hides sharon's towel under the couch cushions*

*sneaks sharon a mojito before kay finds out*

*guzzles mojito and hugs s-girl*

*soaks fluffly blue towel in water and makes a rat-tail*

*thwaps Bumble*

*ducks*

*gooses*

*giggles*

*groans*

*pounces*

*Bumble-tumbles*

*anorks*

*giggles*

thinks: darn! giggle was already taken!
*takes back "giggles"*

*studies*

*shicks*

Okay, I have to tell you guys what just happened. The cleaners came today (YAYYY!!! for a clean house!!), and apparently, one of them accidentally turned the little lock on my downstairs bathroom door. I usually keep that door closed, because the Limb of Satan likes to shred entire packages of toilet paper...not rolls, packages...and leave little spit-soaked bits all over the house. So I shut the door...and got locked out of my own bathroom.

Did you guys know that you really CAN use a credit card to unlock doors? ISIANMTU, that's how I got back in.

first of all, *snork* at Limb of Satan.

second, ya don't expect us to actually believe that this was the first time you attempted that
particular feat, do ya?

third, there is no third.

how did that space get up there?

You can also use a large paper clip straightened out.

But a credit card is way cooler!
Valley Girl talk, sharon, so it's OK :)

Oh, right, Sharon, as if the Ninja Jewel Thief didn't teach you how to do that.

*eye roll*

Y'all won't be laughing so hard when you have to dry off with moldy towels.

WAIT! HOLD IT! This is the Kilt! Pounces don't hurt, couches cost nothin', whipped cream is always readily available... so I bet... there's no mold!/i>

*retracts rule*

*wads up towel*

*whips rum bottle at Sharon's head*

Just 'cause.

*de-italicizes*

you're welcome.

ACTually, KDF, the magician/ninja/jewel thief taught me how to use lockpicks...not credit cards.

(hee har snork!)

*catches rum bottle*

Ooooo! A full one! Thanks, sistah!

El...I tried the paper clip thing first...it didn't work because the lock isn't a "pop in" lock, but a "turn" lock, and a paper clip, no matter how straightened, can't turn the mechanism. So, I went for the credit card approach.

Sharon, I've heard about that whipped cream shortage in New York. What is up with that?

*lobs*

Ha, ha, now I can drive the price way up and.....oh... heh, heh... er, hi folks. How's everyone?

Dunno, KDF...but it's just a little weird, isn't it?

*fields*

Ummm...for a "Blue" you're looking a little red in the face there, my friend!

*snork*

I was just going for a little green in the pocket.

Hey has anybody heard of Dalton Trumbo or his book, How Johny Got His Gun?
I have to write a paper about it. And the author turns out to be pretty weird. I am hoping some one else has better info about him.

Alfred, sorry, I got nothin'.

Blue, I finally got to the Oklahoma Education Initiative thread. Thanks for giving it the ole' college try.

*hoards MA supply of whipped cream, before Blue gets at it*
