Ronnie Corbett and Harry Enfield – My Blackberry Is Not Working, from The One Ronnie.
What’s on your mind?
ha! didn’t like that apple crashing newton? how’s the west bay tonight?
Hilarious! I had another youtube about FB that was very funny
Neither is mine..
Oh wait I don’t own one of those things…
hey ce — how’s ohio tonight?
hey nahant — how’s deadwood city tonight?
dead… like wood….
Suz! The Beeb rawks…
hey ll — how’s nova tonight?
Heh. “Boot it!”
I do have a new phone that sends photos and even video. I feel like a texting teen.
hey kelly — how’s denver tonight?
You can relate.
Oh, not much going on, really…studiously ignored the re-gaveling today. Got the oil changed in the Subie, and she’s freshly washed and ready for the next onslaught of road salt!
Hey Chris, join the club — I’m a middle-aged texter, my niece and I text all the time!
Just don’t sex text it can be detrimental to your freedom… besides Who wants to look at Naked pictures of us old fogies???
Good evening Suzanne. Just had a nifty 4 hour nap on the couch, not so sleepy now.
What’s on my mind tonight? Today I made my burial arrangements, not that I plan on leaving soon, but thought it would be a final act of love to my son. The cost is astounding. No funeral or visitation, just simple burial was $8000. With the great redistribution of wealth that’s continuing, families will not be able to afford to bury their loved ones. Our society is one big damn mess.
Brrrr cold but just enough snow this morning to cover up all the mud and darkness. Looks lovely! Cold enough to keep the rhododendron leaves rolled tight as pencils!
hey oldhippiejan — yikes! that is such a ripoff. am glad ya had a nap — the insomnia still bad?
MsCE and I text, seems so silly but we love it. Love taking photos and sending on the spot.
OMG yes. Reading about the xray BackScatter machines in the airports — sorry for anyone to look at me!
I enjoyed getting pics from a forty something girlfriend back a few years ago when we were together. Where’s the harm?
Not silly at all! It’s great to have that instant connection.
hey wmd — how’s the mt tonight?
Dry for a couple of days.
Interview yesterday was a waste. HR had asked me about my programming languages, I told them what I did and didn’t have experience with. So yesterday I get 15 minutes of being asked to program in a language I don’t know. WTF?
Yeah, still pretty bad. I hope this is just a phase. With the honorable, Governor Mitch Daniels fucking around with the clocks 2 times a year, it’s rough on the body clocks of us old folks. I don’t adjust well anymore.
I sent a polite email to the HR guy and told him I was disappointed I was asked to do something for which I had specifically said I wasn’t skilled.
fingers and toes crossed for ya jan — not being able to sleep well sucks
Oh no harm … but do you really want “others” to get a glimpse of yer tired old NAKED ass?? I know I don’t maybe once in my earlier life but now ???? Fuck no!!!
this aired live.. dood thought it was being taped
Sigh, I might be addicted.
Of Suz did yer have ta??
That seems very rude of them. Yeah, really, WTF?
the r’s theme song
hey margot — how ya doing tonight?
oooo i like that wmd
Suze the cat is telling me it’s time for bed, and I have to agree. Thanks Suz and g’night all!
Hey still here?
when I go, they can make an ash of me.
Doing fine, hope you and yours are doing well. I liked the video.:)
“tired old naked ass”
my tired old naked, saggy front is worse.
Hi, yep, wandering around the intertoobz…
hey pun — how ya been dood?
am trying to stay warm :) glad ya liked it — figured after today, we could all use a laugh or two…
Heard this one from Tommy and was reminded of it.
notorious cherry bombs
No comment could get me in deep Doo Doo..
no body, i repeat, no body warned me that gravity was not my friend…
hey Suz! can’t complain (well, could, but no no avail), just bumping along. you?
same here…. just trying to stay sane in a crazy world
Ya did fall and go boom didn’t ya??? Should have been lesson learned… ☺ ☺ Gravity fucks with ya all the time ya just don’t always notice what it is doing ta ya…
Hey me too, and I should leave to work. I made it through the holidays. Yea! My son had a knife accident on Christmas night. Needs new surgery Friday.
the righteous mothers
O good lord, what happened?
i’m still upright however certain body parts seem to have lost that ability
Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for__Maya Angelou
As has been said many times Gravity sucks….
hey robert – how was your day?
Not having knife skills, he reached for a falling knife, instead of backing off. Seven stitches in his thumb. Hand specialist today set up new surgery Friday to hopefully connect nerves.
My body’s latest trick is to sprout DEMON HAIRS. I swear to god, I battle this one fricking hair coming out my eyebrows threatening to make into some muppet-astic queen EVERY DAY!
It is of supreme iron quality. I do battle with this bastard frequently.
I swear, I’ll pluck it in the morning, and later in the afternoon, SHAZAM this 2 inch bastard is flowing out of my forehead! It’s INSANE!
O god, not the thumb. I have hand nightmares sometimes, and especially about thumbs.
Here’s hoping for a great outcome!
moderator training session
Today, I took Maya Angelou’s advice….
dayam dood… are ya part werewolf now?
a mental health day :)
How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?
The neck area and upper arms are also cause for concern, don’t dare wear anything sleeveless anymore.
Saw Joan Rivers on something last night in the middle of my insomnia. Anymore plastic surgery on the old girl will resulst in her breasts being used as a necklace.
Heh. I could be, except for my hair is NOT perfect!
Ouch … never try and catch a falling knife. get the hell out of the way.. OUCH ouch..
I’m headed for bed. Good night all.
But you were drinking a piña colada at Trader Vics?
No kidding. No cooking barefoot and no cooking naked either!
It’s always fun until someone gets hurt.
I remember that clip. I was fuckin’ President of my AFSCME local for over 10 years before I retired.
Yes, but I had NOTHING to do with that little old lady got mutilated late last night.
laughing . . . I have this lovely problem too. Only mine sprout out of my neck and one in the moustache are. Of course these bastards don’t have the decency to come in grey. They’re black as coal anc coarse as hell.
Hah! I saw that.
Heh. It’s so bizarre.
If all other hair was silk, it’s like these cast iron 2x4s coming out of your head, at unbelievable mutant speed.
It’s like Hairnobyl.
true dat and I keep my knives sharp.. I always use the steel before using them… stay away from the business side of the blade… I have made costly mistakes in my time… Have the scars to prove it…
I once had to have my middle son complete out T-Day turkey dinner as I cut my thumb pretty bad making the stuffing… He had to finish pretty much everything including making the gravy under my watchful eye..
Good thing though he learned and is using those skills now..
Jean, check this out.
Yes, but there is a bright side. After decades of wearing socks, the feet no longer have hair that get snagged when putting the cotton things on…
my dad was a butcher after he retired from the navy — i learned a healthy respect for knives as a youngster
hey that guy — how ya doing tonight?
Night all – out.
Whenever I see a knife in The Sweety’s hand, I immediately take out the garbage…
As any good tool used the way it is supposed to be and all is fine… but just get a bit cocky with it and before ya know it blood every where.. or worse.
Ehh, anxiety. Gotta get my Lexapro scrip refilled.
Deeelightful sense of humor, Kelly.
To Margot @89. Joan really needs to know when to say when. It’s time for her to just go away. I can’t imagine any one in their right mind giving a rat’s ass about anything she has to say.
happy lucky 100 that guy!!!
I’m also bummed because the Delbert Cruise leaves Friday afternoon…without me. :-(
fuck… you always have such a good time :(
Well Pups time ta hit the sack… Niters to all… Hope tomorrow is a great day for all☺ ☺ ☺ ☺
Second year in a row I can’t go. And LEE ROY is on the fuckin thing this year.
hey ppd — how’s the south south bay tonight?
Delbert McClinton?.. dayum!! that would be good .. just popped in to wish you all the very best in 2011 .. I once went to Lee Ho Fuk’s in London to get a Chines menu .. and as God is my witness .. there was NO beef chow mien on the menu .. another childhood illusion shattered … lol
You know, I worked with a hospital secretary who got a less-than-glowing job evaluation because some nurse said she had a stern-looking face. She said, “This is just my face. I’m not in a bad mood, it’s just that I’m not 20 anymore.” So I asked someone else about it and she said yes, as an older working woman she kind of walks around smiling a lot.
Heck of a thing.
doing well, thanks — how’s everything up north tonight?
I smile a great deal too but I have never told another living soul why thet is .. GAS .. :)
Holy shit! Do states set standard rates for final expenses or what? Even cremation here in Indiana runs around $3000. Which is still considerably less than what I paid . . . but still why so much more in Indiana. Perhaps there are morticians in our state legislature.
hey tearloch — how was your day?
gray and off and on drippy… the damp chill is back
Terrific thanks .. and yours??… have had 16″ of snow in the last 24 hours and I feel grand from the exercise .. the solitude of listeneing to great music on headphones while shoveling is delicious .. new John Hiatt album and the Leon Russel/Elton John masterpiece makes me look forward to going outside ..
I don’t know. But this is what’s happening with me and my Telecaster is going in my box with me.
it was a day of disappointments — from the fucking r’s in congress to the log delivery guy not showing up :(
welcome to winter, Suzzz — we need the water here
This is the 17th year they’ve done the cruise. I hope it’s not the last.
Great to see you laugh Margot .. the joy of smiling while leaving a “silent but deadly” cloud that even George Carlin would admire are what makes life worth living .. especially for those who are afraid to acknowledge they can actually not only smell it .. but taste it .. *ducks the shoe that Suz throws*
I have been a awful fond of Delbert for a long time .. I remember when he was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone .. the title was “After 20 years of one night stands, he’s an overnight success” .. that album he and Bonnie Bramlett made at Shelter records is classic .. I must find that again …
tossing ya this instead
I take firewood for granted.. can go cut a half cord and be home warming my hands to it in 2 hours .. joys of living on the edge of civilization ..
I am very easily entertained, I laugh A Lot.
Gonna try that illusive sleep thing again.
g’nite all and thanks for the company.
evenin’ all. How you doing tonight, Suzanne?
hey rond — how’s the great swamp tonight?
Damnation .. that WAS rude!!
*hums Lullaby and Good Night softly**
how about some eddie?
poker time .. be well all .. somehow I feel optimistic about 2011 .. for all of us .. keep the faith .. and find some inner calm .. where you can ..
Raining, but not too bad. A, um, cold front coming in. Should be down in the, um, hi-40s tomorrow night. All in all, very nice.
laughs at Mr Murphy .. give the room a cheery wave, don’s his lucky toque and thong and enters the fray …
tis 50 outside at the moment.. warmer than it was during the day
but i still have that damp cold to the bones feeling going on…. once i get that, its forking hard for me to warm up
time for me to have a long hot soak in the tub to chase the chill from my bones — otherwise i’ll be tossing and turning all night from the aches and pains
thank you for letting me spend part of your evening with ya tonight.
I almost curled into a fetal ball when I read your description of how cold your place was last night. I have low blood pressure, so I’m cold all the time anyway. Once my feet get cold, forget it. They get like ice, and take forever to warm up.
night all – be well
‘night, Lady. I’m out too. Just wanted to say hi to all.
