Flashbacks, G? I'll bet you were either Brad or the Doctor in one of
those midnight dress-ups, weren't you?

5:34 PM Nov 22, 2004   The G
Nah, RH was the 'cool' thing to do in high school for all the kids that
weren't cool. Since I was cool in neither group, I have blissfully never
seen the movie 8D

6:29 PM Nov 22, 2004   Rob
So, you've never seen it but you're still complaining about it? Huh.

12:19 AM Nov 23, 2004 The G
One of my ex's (looong time ago) was a big toast-tosser... so while I
never saw it, I was exposed to much too much...

2:23 AM Nov 23, 2004   Ru
I have since had the um, experience to see the movie on TV. I never even
knew until after the phenomenon passed that there was such a thing as
toast tossing.

BTW Rob, you missed celebrating the first anniversary of CD...

Came to see who dropped by the old blog and liked yours so I'm
blogrolling you.

9:47 AM Dec 3, 2004    Rob
Thanks, Lisa! Isn't a blogroll one of the sandwiches they make with a
tortilla and, um, blogs?

Spleen -- quit flirting with my wife.....

3:48 PM Dec 3, 2004    Lisa
yes, tortillas and blogs with loads of mayonaise. They're perfect for
people on a low-carb diet.

Is it really flirting if she only <i>talks</i> about swallows?

11:12 PM Dec 3, 2004   Todd's Spleen
I was just admiring her ornithological skills

Hey, that smoke is for medicinal purposes, and completely legal!

4:00 PM Dec 16, 2004   Ru
Sure, medicinal - as in you're going to need medicine.

Our climate is offically altered. A couple of days ago it was 14 inches
of snow and freezing. Now it is 52 and we're having a violent
thunderstorm. In January, IN CHICAGO.

Ru, I had my air conditioner on yesterday and today it's in the 40's.
That's Texas for you though. We are all developing pneumonia.

I don't know what it's like up there now, but the thunderstorms have been

Today, there was flooding and then it is going to drop into the single
digits again, just to make sure anything wet gets good and icy.

Oh, it is snowing here, approx. 1" I'm so confused. It is difficult to
figure out what to wear.

3:16 PM Jan 13, 2005   dcb
In a pinch, I always refer back to Ann's outfit: one pink cowboy boot,
one snow boot, chemistry goggles, and a snow hat that looks like a
pineapple. Of course, she was 2 at the time, so that probably explains
the strange looks I get in public.

Hey, you said you needed something to wear. There were no specifics
given. I just went with my fallback outfit. You could also go with a tube
top and some cutoffs.

hairy around the house, you'd definitely keep it in mind, at least.
