June 25, 2007


Here is where we stand:

In last week's episode, as imagined by the Amazing Steve, the cast of Cheers showed up. We don't know why, and we don't want to know why. All we really know, in this crazy uncertain world, is that Edgar is still dead.

We give you now, unless he forgot, the Amazing Steve.

24 – Two Days Later – Hour 5
The following takes place between 11 pm and 12 midnight
11:00 pm – Jack and Bill are completely disoriented. The side of Jack's face is bleeding. Some men wearing red shirts run towards Jack and Bill, but none of them seems to want to be the person in the lead. It looks like they’re all afraid to be first. Jack thinks he and Bill are in danger and tries to shoot his gun, but it won't fire! He tries a couple more times, but it just clicks. Finally, in frustration, Jack throws his gun at the men. The gun hits some kind of invisible barrier and bounces to the floor. Bill starts to run away from the men, takes about two steps, and hits another invisible barrier and falls to the ground.

The men on the other side of the barrier see the gun bounce to the ground and start laughing nervously as Bill gets up. One of them says, "Wow! That's the first time we've ever been in a fight and one of us DIDN'T die. No one is going to believe us!"

11:02 pm - "I'll believe you, Mister," says a man in a yellow shirt as he arrives to the scene. He's followed by a tall man with black hair, and strange ears. Bill leans over to Jack and says, "That guy looks like he had his head caught in a mechanical rice-picker!"

The man in yellow continues, "Your weapons were disabled as soon as you came aboard, thanks to Mr. Spock here. Now, do you mind telling me what you're doing on my ship?"

Jack and Bill look at each other. Jack realizes he doesn't have much to bargain with, so he decides to tell the truth, "My name is Jack Bauer. I work for CTU Los Angeles. This is Bill Buchanan We have been chasing after some terrorists for the last few hours. Every hour.... come to think of it, nearly EXACTLY every hour, we get thrown some new place."
Bill says, "We've been in a house with a family, to an island, in a bar, and now we're at sea aboard whatever kind of ship this is you have here."

Spock says, "Fascinating! Captain, I believe these men are telling the truth. From their appearance, I would say they were from the late twentieth or early twenty-first century. How they got here, I’m not certain."

Bill says, “Wait, wait, wait….what did you just say….?”

The Captain says to Bill, "What makes you think you're at sea?"

Bill says, "Well, you did say you were on a ship. Where else would it be?"

11:04 pm – The man in yellow looks at Spock and says, "I believe you're right." He addresses Jack and Bill, "Gentleman, you're aboard the U.S.S Enterprise. You're not at sea, you're aboard a starship! I'm Captain James T. Kirk."

Jack asks, “What century is this?”
Spock raises an eye brow, “In human terms, you’re in the twenty-third century.”
Bill throws up his hands in frustration, "Well that’s just great!" Bill starts pacing around.

Spock says, "We're docked at Starbase Alpha-Centi-Muldooni-Solati-Gelato 12, orbiting Beta-Mega-Ultra-Vita-Meta-Vegamin...."

Kirk says to Spock, "Wait, I thought we were at Starbase Beta-Mega-Ultra-Vita-Meta-Vegamin orbiting, Alpha-Centi-Muldooni-Solati-Gelato 12... ?"

Spock says, "A common mistake, the people of..."

11:05 pm – Jack interrupts, "Look we're missing two of our people. We have to find them."

Kirk doesn't seem all that concerned, "We'll do a scan for them on the ship and ask the starbase to do the same. In the mean time, you should go down to sick bay and have that looked at."

11:07 pm – Morris and Chloe are in a bar, somewhere on the star base. The other people in the bar are completely oblivious to them. Chloe is having an argument with the computer they're using to order drinks. She says, "All I want is a Seven-up!"

The computer replies, "That is an ancient beverage. Please request something more modern... and while you're at it, pick something better to wear, dear." Morris tells her to quiet down and to stop drawing attention to herself. Chloe ignores this and threatens to dismantle the computer.

Meanwhile, one of the Chinese terrorists is sitting at the far end of the bar watching Chloe and Morris.


11:12 pm – Jack and Bill are in sick bay. Jack is sitting on a table jutting out from the wall. He's being looked after by someone who's introduced himself as Dr. McCoy. A nurse stands nearby, holding a clipboard. Jack says, "What can you tell us about what's going on here? What’s happened since the twenty-first century?"

Dr. McCoy yells, "I'm a doctor, not a historian! Now, sit still!" He pulls out a little cylinder and holds it over Jack. The top of it starts to flash and make a weird noise.

Jack asks, "What is that?"
Dr. McCoy stops and looks at the cylinder. "I use it to calm people down. This really doesn't do anything." He throws the cylinder over his shoulder. Dr. McCoy says, "Now hold still."

11:13 pm – Somewhere on the ship, there's a loud explosion. Both the nurse and Dr. McCoy stumble over to the left side of the room, pause for a minute, and then stumble over the right side of the room. Jack and Bill don't move at all.

Bill asks, "Why are you doing that?"

McCoy looks at him and says, "You know, I'm not sure. Back at the academy, they told us whenever we heard an explosion we had to stumble to our left and then to our right. Sometimes we stumble to our right and then back over to the left. If it's really bad, sometimes we do it a couple of times."

Jack asks, "Does that help?"

McCoy shrugs, "Not really."

11:14 pm – A speaker near Jack's bed plays a whistling noise, and a woman's voice says, "Dr. McCoy, Captain Kirk has requested that you beam down to the planet immediately. Someone has taken a shuttle craft from the starbase to the planet, and he wants to investigate."

McCoy tells Jack, "You go get yourself down to the bar on the starbase. Nurse Chapel will take you there. Don't worry. We'll find your friends for you."

Before Jack can say anything, McCoy leaves.

11:15 pm – The nurse escorts Bill and Jack through the ship and onto the starbase. Bill and Jack discuss what to do next. They take a few turns and enter a bar. Chloe and Morris see Jack and Bill immediately, and run up to them. The nurse says, "I guess you found your friends!"

Chloe looks at the nurse and says, "Your voice is that same as the one the computer uses."

The nurse says, "Uh... That's a complete coincidence!", and runs out of the bar.

11:16 pm – Chloe gives Jack a hug, and while she's doing so, she sees the Chinese terrorist that is sitting across the room. Chloe whispers, "Jack, behind you!" Jack quickly turns around. The terrorist jumps up, points his gun at Jack and tries to shoot. Nothing happens.

Jack runs towards the man, first stepping onto a chair, then onto a table, and yells as he leaps from table to tackle the terrorist. They struggle, until Jack gets them better of him. Jack yells, "What have you been doing! Why has this been happening? Why are you here?"

The terrorist starts to laugh, but stops when Jack tightens his grip. Jack reaches for a bar glass, smashes it and shoves the jagged-edge glass right into the guy's leg. The man screams. Jack yells, "WHY ARE YOU HERE?"

The terrorist yells, "Gathering Trilithium....gathering trilithium! Please stop!" Red-shirted security guards surround Jack.

11:18 pm – Another man in a red shirt, someone who looks a bit older than the others, comes into the bar and sees Jack. He says, “What are you doing, lad? Don’t you know you can’t just go doing that around here?”

Jack apologizes, “I’m sorry, that man attacked me, and I have to know what they’re doing so I can put a stop to it.”

The man shakes his head, “No, no… I’m talking about the whiskey glass you just smashed! What an awful shame! Who’s that?”

Jack explains that this is one of the men that he’s been looking for, and asks to see Captain Kirk. The man tells everyone his name is Mr. Scott, chief engineer. Mr. Scott tells them he’ll take them to see Captain Kirk personally. “He asked me to keep an eye on you”, says Mr. Scott. Mr. Scott orders, “Take this man to the brig, and have Nurse Chapel go there to treat him.”

11:19 pm – Everyone follows Mr. Scott into a room. In the room, a man is standing by a control panel in front of a platform. The man tells everyone to get up onto platform, and stand on one of the pads. Morris starts singing, “STOP! In the Name of Love!” complete with hand gestures, but when no one else joins his impromptu singing, he stops.

Mr. Scott tells a man that there are five to “beam down” to Captain Kirk’s location, and joins everyone on the platform.

11:20 pm – A second later, they’re all standing with Captain Kirk, Spock, and McCoy. There are bushes and trees all around them. They can see towers rising above a town in the distance. Bill asks, “What the heck just happened?”

Spock replies, “Your molecular structure was broken down, transmitted to the surface of this planet, and then reassembled.” Bill gives him a blank stare.

McCoy leans over and tells Bill, “He means they scrambled you up there, and sent you down here. How many fingers am I holding up?” He holds up three fingers.

Bill says, “Three… ?”

McCoy says, “Good! You’re fine. Sometimes if that thing isn’t calibrated right…. Well, let’s just say the last person I asked how many figures I was holding up answered ‘Tibet’”.

11:21 pm - Kirk says, “Ah, now I have all my senior officers here. Good! Now let’s get going!”
Jack looks at him and says, “Uh… I have a question: If you’ve got all your senior officers down here…. What’s going on back at your ship?”

[The scene briefly shifts to show a wild party happening aboard the Enterprise].

Mr. Scott says, “Never mind that! The lad here found one of the people he’s after!”

11:22 pm – Jack explains what happened at the bar on the starbase while they’re walking along the path to town. Mr. Scott yells, “Everyone take cover!” They dive for the bushes, and several men walk past. They’re dressed in some kind of military outfits, and they have green faces.”
Mr. Scott whispers, “Klingons!”


11:25 pm – Morris asks, “What the heck are cling ons?”
Kirk explains, “Klingons! Klingons! They’re a savage race of alien warriors who value combat and honor above all else. They will stop at nothing to gain control of the galaxy!” Bill whispers to Jack, “Sounds like Microsoft”.

Morris says, “Aliens? They look human! Well… humans with green skin and prosthetic foreheads… but still! They look pretty human to me.”

McCoy says, “What? You don’t see how different they look than us? What’s wrong with you?” He pulls out something that looks like a cassette recorder and starts waving it around Morris.

11:26 pm – Kirk tells Jack, “Things have just gotten more dangerous. You’re going to need one of these.” Kirk hands Jack something that looks like a toy ray gun.

Jack says, “What’s this supposed to…..” He accidentally pulls the trigger and vaporizes a bird. Jack is impressed, “I could get used to this!”

11:27 pm – Kirk tells Jack, “Be careful with that thing! You had it on the strongest setting and could have killed any one of us!”

Jack asks what other settings there are, and Spock explains, “The standard issue phaser has nine settings: Nudge, Bother, Tickle, Astonish, Stun, Baffle, Clench, Fry and Kill.”
They all head towards the city.


11:33 pm – Spock says, “I have to warn you, this planet is rich with Dihydrogen Monoxide, a substance known to case burns in gaseous form and it can kill if inhaled.”
Bill looks very alarmed until Chloe says, “Dihydrogen Monoxide is WATER!” She turns to Spock and says, “What’s wrong with you?”

McCoy tells her, “Don’t worry about him. He tells that joke to everyone. Some kind of Vulcan humor.”

Morris says, “So, he’s an alien too? I should have guessed from the prosthetic ears…”

11:35 pm – McCoy says, “This doesn’t make any sense. What would the Klingons be trying to accomplish by coming to a planet near a Star Fleet starbase, when they know the dangers involved?”

Mr. Scott tells everyone, “I did some research while I was waiting onboard the Enterprise. The main city on this planet is Bloop. They’re going to start powering it by using trilithium crystals. Not suitable for use on starships, the way dilithium is. Much too hazardous. Very powerful though. One crystal can power the entire city. That must be why the Klingons want it.”

Jack says, “Trilithium? The guy we caught in the bar said something about that! They’re gathering Trilithium.”

Spock says, “That would explain it. Even a small quantity of the substance would be highly valuable to them.”

11:37 pm – While the rest of them discuss this, Kirk corners Chloe. He says, “So, are you an alien?”
Chloe says, “No, I’m human.”
Kirk seems disappointed, “O.K., never mind then. When we beam down to a planet, I usually find an alien to fall in love with before the mission is over.”

11:38 pm – In the center of Bloop, a group of Klingons are making announcements. One of them says, “I am Moog, commander of the Bird of Prey, Bok! Cooperate with us, and you will not be harmed!” They crowd seems to think this is pretty fair, so they go along with the Klingons right away. Moog is a bit taken aback by having such an easy time taking over. He regains his composure and tells the crowd to take him to their trilithium storage facility.

11:40 pm – The Chinese terrorists are already at the trilithium storage facility. While the rest of the terrorists stands guard, one of them holds a small briefcase, and another puts the trilithium crystal into it. One of the guards warns the group that someone is coming to the facility. They all run around the back of the facility and off into the woods towards the south as the Klingons and the people from Bloop arrive at the building from the north.

11:42 pm – Moog is enraged when he finds out the trilithium is gone. He calls to his ship, and is told the trilithium sensors indicate it is moving south and away from the building. Moog orders his men out of the back of the building.

11:43 pm – As Kirk, Jack and the rest of the group arrive on the outskirts of the town, they are surprised to see the Chinese terrorists run right past them! Jack regains his composure, takes aim, and hits the last of the terrorists in the leg. He vaporized his whole thigh, which is NOT something Jack was expecting. He’s so surprised he doesn’t think to run after the rest of the terrorists.

Jack snaps out of it and runs to the man he shot. He’s dead. The rest of the group catches up with Jack. McCoy says, “Damn it, I’m a doctor, not a doctor! …. Wait a second, that doesn’t make sense.” Mr. Scott says, “I didn’t even know a shot like that was possible!” McCoy says, “Neither did I. It did cauterize the wound though…”

Just as McCoy says this, a Star Fleet shuttle craft zooms over their heads. Chloe says, “I thought we got most of the terrorists already. There must have been five more than the last time we saw them! How are they doing that?”

The Klingons run out of the back of the building and turn to watch the shuttle craft that just zoomed over their heads. Jack sees that one of the Klingons is holding another terrorist. The Klingons are so preoccupied with the shuttlecraft they don’t notice the people from the Enterprise. One of the Klingons pulls out a device and says something into it. They start to dematerialize, and as they do, Jack runs for them. He grabs one of the Klingons, and a moment later he’s gone!

11:46 pm - Kirk says, “We have to go after them!” He opens his communicator, “Kirk to Enterprise! Beam me aboard!”

A 2 by 4 materializes at Kirk’s feet. Kirk says, “That gets less funny every time they do that.”


11:51 pm – On board the Klingon ship, Moog sits at a table facing Jack, who is standing in front of him, a guard on either side. Moog looks at a big knife in his hand and says, “Give me a reason not to kill you where you stand.”

Jack says, “You were in a pretty big hurry, running after the same people I’ve been chasing. My guess is that they’ve got the trilithium you’re after.” The Klingons look at each other, surprised that Jack knows about the trilithium. Jack continues, “I’ll get you a sample of that trilithium!”

Moog laughs, “Why would we need the help of a human?”

Jack says, “Well, you would, I suppose, if you were afraid to go after it yourself.”

Moog stops laughing, and pounds his fist on the table. “You have insulted me, human! Prepare for battle! Moog turns the table over, and heads for Jack.

11:53 pm – Everyone is back on the bridge of Enterprise, except Mr. Scott, who has gone back to engineering. Captain Kirk orders that they scan the area for the Klingon’s ship and for the stolen shuttle craft. He says, “We have to get to that shuttle before the Klingons find it.” He presses a button, “Mr. Scott! I need those sensors back online immediately!”

11:55 pm – Mr. Scott is at his wit’s end. “I’m doing the best that I can!” Everyone scrambles around. Chloe points to a button on the console near Mr. Spock, and asks, “What is that?” She presses the button, and the sensors come back online.

11:56 pm – Kirk orders, “Main viewer on!” A large screen on one wall of the bridge flickers on. They seen the Klingon ship they’ve been looking for. It’s facing them and it fills the entire screen. Kirk says, “Red alert!” A woman near Kirk says, “The Klingon Bird of Prey is hailing us, sir!” Kirk says, “Let’s have it!”

11:57 pm – Jack appears on the main viewer. He’s sitting in Moog’s command chair, holding Moog’s knife. Jack says, “I have everything under control here. Any word on that shuttle craft?”

Kirk looks amused, “No… no word yet. We’re working on it.”

11:58 pm – Aboard the shuttle craft, one of the terrorists talks into a walkie-talkie and says, “We have the crystal.” There’s a brilliant flash of light.

11:59 pm – Jack finds himself sitting on the ground on a street corner, still holding Moog’s knife. There’s a palm tree next to him. A Ferrari Testarossa drives up. A man wearing a white suit and a turquoise shirt says to Jack, “Well, don’t just sit there! Get in!”

12:00 midnight – Time’s up!

Whoo hoo! They're in Miami!! Watch out, Judi!

....and extra points for the Vita-Meta-Vegemin!!!

very...ummm....interesting, steve. May I ask if you have a plan as to where to take this or are you just making it up as you go along like the real writers of 24?

Excellent, Steve! Excellent!

Going from space to Miami---now this is really going to get weird!

Steve, I look forward to the latest installment each Monday night. Once again, you have amazed us! Thanks! (So much better than the real thing...)

Yes, Homeybeef. There is a plan. Maybe not a great plan, but a plan. :-)

*inserts wild applause for the Amazing Steve*

The best hour yet Steve! Jack with a phaser would move the real 24 into uncharted comic/violent territories. That and Dr. McCoy's tool for welding human skin shut.

...going boldly where no 24 writer has ever thought to go before...

This is great!

Bravo! I can't wait for the next installment. (Well, I guess I'll have to, won't I?) Great job, Steve.

It's 24, Jim . . . but not as we know it.

Amazing, Steve, just amazing!

I can do better, just gimme a minute....

*Stomps off in a huff^

Lol. Dave (not the real Dave and not the not-the-real-Dave Dave)!

Since Diva and Sioux are AWOL, anyone care for a blogtail?

Blogaritas and D Blager are here for your enjoyment. I can also scare up some SM scotch and Jim and soda for doc, if someone will cart Mert out of my way. He's obviously been "sampling" again.

Should we make up a new shot in honor of the previous thread? Any ideas? Annie? El? Stevie? Meanie? Let 'er rip.

FTR, I plagarized this post from the previous thread EG!!!

Live long and prosper, Amazing Steve! Terrific!

LOL Med! I'd love a blogarita! All that songwriting (and snorking) made me thirsty!

Ducky, would you like salt with that?

On the Write day and time, I could come up with hilarious shot names to make light, but today doesn't seem write.

HI, EVERYBODY!!!!!! I'M BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK. Now to go back and catch up on everything....


Shoot - it's times like these when I wish I was on the East Coast so I could follow along in real time. Rats.

Yes, Med, thanks. WOOHOO, DDIVA!!!

To quote some guy from the other active thread:

A nightcap is an excellent idea, Med. I propose a new brew - Watson's Pale Imitation Ale. Of course, it would be a light beer....

First toast: To the Return Engagement of the Late Night Grinning Diva.

*clinks glass with Meanie, humming birthday tune*


Meanie and Annie....... snorkage.

Anyone for a:

Flaming Dr. Watson?

Make mine a double, please, Med. Gotta start a new half-century off right.

HEY, MED!!!!!! *BIGGGGG smiles all round!*

This is your birthday song,
it isn't very long.

Short, but heartfelt, dearie!!! *SMOOCH*

OK. Snorks ALL 'round to the best 24 parody YET, Steve!!! You rock per your fine, fine usual! DOUBLES for the Vita-Meata-Vegamin.

And snorks for CJ. Very nice. Truly.

You have NO idea how nice it is to be back among my nightly vamp crew. :0)

Diva, that song was pretty short, but I bet you could write a shorter song if you really wanted to.

ONLY because Meanie has sped right to the big 5-o would I ever link to something like this. BIG warning, people.

Ooh, and shoot me three of those Flaming Dr. Watsons. Just set 'em up in a row and I'll toss 'em back like water tonight. I am feelin' GOOD!!!

Yay Meanie, you are 2.5 times as old as me, which I understand is actually quite young.

Good one, Med. How about a Pilfered Pilsner? Filcher's Fizz? Swindler's Sour? Shanghai Sling?

EG - it is definitely past your bedtime. And don't forget to brush your teeth, mister.

Ah, well, in keeping with the theme for the day, I didn't exactly write this song either. :-)

Oh, no, busted for speeding again.

Say, it gets cold in Denmark, doesn't it? Just askin'....

*SNORKs for Annie*

Meanie - you've earned it. Make it to 100, and I'll see what else I can arrange.

*SNORKS* for Annie and Ducky.

Maybe I shouldn't have posted that. Looks like all the guys left the blog...except Meanie, but hey, he's oooooooold. ;)

Hey! Some of us are still around!

... just on special assignment. ;-)

Very cold, Meanie. I wonder if they wear fur leggings in winter...?

Meanie's not old he only 50. When he gets to 123 or so, he'll be old.

EG - bedtime. Now. Or no video games for a week.

Annie, you need to confiscate that computer he's hiding under the covers.

Ooh! A Meanie BIRTHDAY simul! What a way to inaugurate my new computer, Dearie!! (And followed by a STEVE simul to boot!)

*waves @ Ducky!!*

Hi there! I nearly missed you in the welcomes. Thanks so much. :O)

JD - are you sure it's that kind of 'laptop'?

Does this mean the new laptop has arrived?

*waves at DDiva* Welcome back to the land of the midnight blogging! Make sure to show Siouxie those boots.

Annie, I have a teenaged son. Yes. (And snork!)

Speaking of bedtime, it's mine. We ooooooold ducks need our beauty rest.

Nighty-night, y'all! Sweet dreams!

We just had a bit of excitement here on the Petersen ranch. Some neighbors had come over for supper and when they were leaving just a few minutes ago there was a rattlesnake just outside our front door.

pete - you think that's bad? I just had a Jehovah's Witness at my door.

Well, thanks to everyone again for adding a lot of extra fun to my birthin' day. But my bosses don't give a d@mn how old I am, they still expect me to get show up in the morning (or later this morning, as it were).

Now don't leave Mert with too big a mess...

*Passes out with head on bar*

OK, I'll take the rattlesnake. At least it's still legal to shoot them.

g'nite, Meanie

seriously, pete - if you do kill it, dispose of the head so the dogs can't get to it. There's still venom in it.

I dispatched it with my trusty.410 and buried the head under the hackberry tree.

You know, pete, when it becomes illegal to shoot snakes, I'm out.

flashes meanie Happy birthday, Meanie. Did you like my flash? It was only for you!

stop looking pete. you're married. EDGAR! you are underage!

Hey, pete. Dave Watson was outside your door? What's he REALLY look like? Inquiring minds want to know.

just as long as they can't dig it up. Baaaad chew-toy.

Beady little eyes, Med. Kind of short and wiggly, IYKWIM.

I better head to bed myself. Morning comes pretty early this time of year.

Goodnight, all.

And completely without dangly bits, huh, pete? Not to mention morals, ethics, judgment, and a brain the size of a pea. Yeah, that's what I thought. ;)

Baaaad chew-toy. AWBH, 1.05 am EST Tastes like chicken.

OH, DANG!!!!! I leave to finish the previous thread from earlier, and here I miss pete!! Well, shoot. Oh. He already did....

Diva - It's just you and me, kid.

I am watching a docu about TH Benton with the son. We are going to Benton's home and the Nelson tomorrow to enrich, bring to life and re-enforce the history and art pictorially.

Wish you could go with us. I can't wait to see Persephone again. With Perspective.

Scotch and Pseudo. Amybody call that yet?

You have the TM thingy, Stevie.

Diva - we are going to Romeo and Juliet later in the week. Interested? I want to picnic, and I will bring us a nice riesling to sip on.

We also get reserved, friends of the cast seating, because of my guy friend playing the narrator and another role, that I can't remember due to inebriation.

What night, Med? I'd love to, but have rehearsal all but Friday night.

Diva - Thursday or Friday. I have to talk to the X. I will let you know..... would be fun for you to be there with us. I also want to rent the Claire Danes/DiCaprio version to pre-qualify with the son. Repetition, you know.

How long until you "catch up?" I am so glad you are back. Sioux and prof must have had a date tonight.... they have been amazingly silent considering the quality of the day.

I'm feeling a little miffed myself! My first night back and the only people here to welcome me are Ducky, Meanie, you and pete (who I missed entirely) in that order, and I didn't even rate a hello from Annie - and I even snorked her TWICE. Sheesh.



NOT that each of you wonderful, wonderful, marvelous creatures is not worth every single minute of my blogtention!!!! I just meant it to point out how dead it's been out here lately. Well, NO MORE!!!

*pours a round of Flaming Dr. Watsons for the remaining blog buds and pops some Frank on the juke*

I'da made it Hank, but it's kinda late for his stylings. Frank's a bit mellower. Just be glad it ain't Judy Collins. *shudder*

*throws self at GungaDan*


I have missed you. I'm soooo glad you're back safe and sound. AND that I have my new computer!

Nights have been ssssslllllllllloooooooowwwwwww the last few weeks. You'd think people are vacationing, and enjoying summer or something.

Give it a few days..... er, weeks.

My poor baby. Whilest he was in Greensburg cleaning up the tornado mess, the chiggers ate him alive. He has been bleeding (real blood) from scratching and is completely covered in bites. There is not an apendage on his bod that is not polka dotted with bites, and the worst (he claims) was in his underpants. I don't want to go there. Poor thing. IYKWIM.

Oh, and I LOVE this age with my son. We can have serious, deep, learning philosophical, real discussions about grown-up topics. He has the most incredible questions and observations; I can't wait for you to know him.

That is sooooo excellent. The discussions. NOT the chiggers. ISH.

I feel for him though on that part. I have had them miserably. Have you googled for a good remedy?

*shuffles in from weeklong bender*

Time ta make the donuts... clean the blogbar....

*herds sheep back into pen for Hammie, who hasn't been around in days, it seems, so howinheck did they get out anyhow? oh who cares?*

*wipes down bar, drinks up empties undrunk Flaming Watsons down the sink cuz haven't I had enough o' this crap to last me a few lifetimes lately? sigh.*

*flips "The Final Score" on the HD, finds no empties to toss, and - wonder of wonders - no stray undergarments or other unmentionables. locks the hot wax in Siouxie's special box.*

I just realized I got the 69th post on my first thread back!! Well! It's been a banner day for me!

Nytol! Now I can sleep peacefully.


Sorry to have missed Meanie's bday partay last night but I did have a date (Med). With MY PILLOW! I was still exhausted from my vaca. Prof, who knows...he's got about 17 kids and I'm always pleasantly surprised when he does show up.

Annie, they need to make a video like that for when we turn 50. *snorks* to the late nighters and welcome back Diva and your new puter!


Jazzzzzzzzzzzzie!! I've missed you my friend!! what's going on?? you alive???

Amigos de la buena mañana. Espero que usted todo tenga un día agradable.

What the Sam Hill is going on? Plagiarism reared its ugly head and the blog flexed its muscles and made the bad guy go away. Jeez something exciting always happens when I'm botfocked and can't blog. By the time I read the thread the offending bits had been removed already.

Sooz!, glad you're back, the blog has not been the same without you. TooDees, glad you're also up and running from home.

We had an attempted robbery in our complex at 3 AM. Woke up to dogs barking and flashing lights. The cops nailed 2 guys, one of whom had a gun. Exciting stuff indeed.

Mot!!!!!!! glad to BE back! but now off to blog from work!


Hello sweet siouxie!!!! I have been in hyper-drive lately. Just got back from Montana, had been to Augusta twice, and in between was on call every frickin' day. Hopefully, life was assume some semblance of normalcy now.. I've missed you guys.

Steve... wow!

Siouxie, you mean we have to do it all over again because you missed it? Well, for a special friend (especially one who knows the art of machete wielding), I'm willing to make the effort and be celebrated again.

*Cues crickets*

Hi Jazzzz, we missed your dulcet tones on the blog, going to Augusta should not be considered a chore when, as I suspect, you got to play the course.

Meanie, many congrats on the birthday, the big 50 is a milestone of sorts.

Or a millstone, depending on how you look at it. (Thanks).

Thanks for the perspective, Mot. It was not a chore at all, it was nirvana.*hides head in sand* Hope you've been well. I hope to catch up with you guys soon.

*waves to my favorite jazzzzzz!*

We've missed you! Do you need me to write a note to your boss to get you off call? I will, you know.

Meanie my darling...I am always willing to celebrate and what better reason than your birthing day. We can celebrate for days! (you will have to endure the daily bloggette spankings though).

You, btw, look mahvelous and you know what Ricardo says...it is better to LOOK good than to feel good. ;-P

hey beautiful casey ;-). I may have you do that. I'm thinking of retiring, but I gotta figure out how to live on $67.39 a year. More likely, I'll still be working for 49 more years.....but not a minute longer!! I miss you too. I'm thinkin' I'll have a little more time since I'm done travling for a while.

*Senses the bloglits thinking Is he gonna milk this forever? Answer: oh, yeah.*

*gives Meanie some cookies to go with the milk*

"If you give a Meanie cookies..." - gnfa children's book?

Hey, guys? What happens when Mert sees all the french maid floozies show up in response to the help wanted ad?

(And who keeps letting the sheep out of their pen (and why)? )

*snork* @ "beam me aboard" :)

Another fabulous episode, Steve!

Fascinating- not just the Amazing Steve, but all you blogits, too.
