All is quiet on the Pacific Northwestern front.

So...keep up with the happy gerbil fun.

To newcomers: pull up some debris and have a seat, and say hello.

You would be the early bird. Oopsie.

Ottava -

You survived, I take it.

Otta: Just for you.

A Scott was wandering through the forrest one day, when he decided to take a nap. Propping himself up against a tree, he dozed off. After awhile, two beautiful lasses come by and decide to see what he had under his kilt. To there amazement, they found a very nice specimen of what the Scotts had to offer to the world, and womanhood in general. Laughing to themselves, they decided to play a joke on the poor Scott. Taking the blue ribbon from her hair, she tied it in a bow around the Scott's "John Thomas"

When the scott awoke, he went to relieve himself. Looking down he noticed the blue ribbon. So he said to wis winkie:

"I don't know where ya been laddie, but I'm glad to see ye won First Prize!"

Addendum to my previous:

FIRSTIES! Neener, neener, neener!

That is all.

Sulla -

How're things going?

At 4:09 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Have you noticed that sulla looks pale and wan recently?

Kind of grey, actually.

fatwa, yes. we did survive all the thunder and lightning. and the power came back on before the laptop battery went dead. (whew)

though, has anyone heard from hawk today? he's just down the road from me and, quite frankly, i'm a bit worried!

hose, you're the best. between you, brenda and sbh, i feel enlightened (my paternal grandmother's forebears, scottish one and all, would be ashamed of me, so i hope you won't tell).

Two other answers to the "Whot do ya wear under th' kilt, laddie?" question:

"Nothing is worn, lass, it's all in first class working order!'

"I'm a man 'o few words, lass, gimme yer hand!"

(I used to "play" the pipes meself back in my youth. I say "play" because I never made it much past the "cats being horribly tortured" stage)

Do you know why a piper walks when he plays? He's trying to get away from the sound!

Worst mistake of my life was wearing my full, doublet & jabot with evening plaid rig & all the "gongs" to my cousins wedding, in honor of the happy couple. No-one had ever told me (or should have needed to, I might add) that one never outdresses the bride.

She just started speaking to me again a few years ago...

Ottava -

One of the things I missed most during my 26 years in CA was big, honkin' thunderstorms. They almost never happened in S.F. of L.A. and when they did, were generally anemic compared to the Great Lakes area.

But power outtages put a damper on things.

At 4:51 PM, Blogger SBH said...

It's quiet here today. Does anyone else find that suspicious? Maybe She-who-shall-not-be-named stopped by Walmart over the holidays? If she could find one in the Great Socialist Utopia Oregon.

At 4:57 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

sbh -

Repeat with Ottava and I:

Trust teh cycle®. OOOOooohhhhmmmm. Teh cycle®. OOoohhhmmm. Trust. Ooohmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

See, don't you feel better now?

It'll happen.

At 5:00 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

call me teh crazy® but i've been thinking maybe her little trip was to the slammer.

and they beat it into her head over the weekend that she MUST STOP POSTING her idiocy at swp et al.

i know, brenda. i need to get out my prayer mat and start chanting.

but today, i'm feeling a bit faithless. i'm thinking someone (her formidable jewish mother perhaps?) has gotten to her.

At 5:03 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

It is suspicious, given the lead-up to this past weekend.

And I suppose it might even be nice if a Wal*Mart run has, in fact, been made. But I'm highly skeptical at this juncture.

Wonder what kind of odds a bookmaker would give?

At 5:31 PM, Blogger Fred the Genius said...

Submitted the following comment at SWP earlier today but couldn't get past the censor:

How was your trip? Did they administer sufficient amperage?

At 5:35 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

fred -

Good one! I can't believe she didn't let that one through.

At 5:36 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

It's a perfectly pleasant 'vacation' question.

Deb just has no social graces.

At 5:38 PM, Blogger Fred the Genius said...

Thanks, Brenda. Where is everybody?

At 5:41 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Oh, putting those blue-light special Walmart lives to use, I imagine.

I missed the sale entirely. I'll have to wait until Presidents Day to purchase my life, I expect.

I'm holding out for the extra delux life with new and improved lawncare, myself.

At 5:44 PM, Blogger Fred the Genius said...

I plan to get mine off ebay. That way, I can give the seller a negative rating if my life sucks.

At 5:46 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Caveat Emptor, Fred.

Be sure to check the feedback, or you might end up with the life of a pot-bellied pig and that would be...unfortunate.

At 5:51 PM, Blogger Fred the Genius said...

Yeah, especially the pot-bellied part.

At 5:52 PM, Blogger NedraZ said...

Barney Coppersmith,

Catlover was me. Also, Spyeye, Query #1 and Query #2.

At 5:57 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Hey, "Spyeye"...thanks for hyping my little audio production over at Shelob's lair.

I shoulda known that was you.

At 5:59 PM, Blogger Fred the Genius said...

Hey, Rabbit!

Go listen and you'll hate it.


(That reminds me, I haven't listened to it yet.)

At 5:59 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Who made the comment under brendaK?

Because unless that early onset alzheimers thing is for real, I did't leave that comment. Not that I don't agree with the comment, mind you.

Gasp - I have a twin!

How fortunate the world is.

At 5:59 PM, Blogger NedraZ said...

Thanks Fatwa, Just trying to cause trouble!

At 6:00 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Or not. It's hard to tell, really. Could go either way.

At 6:02 PM, Blogger NedraZ said...

I promise on my VBS Ritz cracker, it wasn't me. I will never comment under any of the VBSers name.

At 6:03 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

rabbit - it must just drive her nuttier to know we're having fun over here.

Good job!

At 6:05 PM, Blogger Fred the Genius said...

Just listened to the TEH TV promo. Gee, thanks a lot, Fatwa!

Perfectly good pair of drawers shot to hell!

At 6:06 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

rabbit - I know. It's just weird. Good comment, though. I'd take credit if I could.

At 6:08 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Gasp - I have a twin!

Which one of you is the evil BrendaK?

(I'm rather hoping the answer is "both".)

Rabbit -

You're such a sneak; glad you're on our side.

Aren't you?

Fred the Genius -

I'll post a better disclaimer next time.

At 6:11 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Fatwa -

Actually, we're both just Faaaaabulous!

At 6:12 PM, Blogger Fred the Genius said...

I'll post a better disclaimer next time.


At 6:16 PM, Blogger NedraZ said...

Are you kidding?
(I know you are).
Even if I wasn't on our side, I'd convert. (I am afraid of John Henry) LOL

Besides, we are the Mighty VBS vs.the unholy trinity of DEB-Bile, CHELL & Dean4prez

At 6:20 PM, Blogger Paddy O'Furnijur said...

The last post in the previous thread is for you (in case you didn't see it after eating those worms and jumping to this thread).

Barkeep, have you been watering this whiskey? I didn't feel a thing after that last round.
