happy birthday, brenda!

my gift is on its way ... in case you don't read the other thread again, i'm just sending you a new email. it's taking a long time, though. sheesh.

(and i swear i'm not stocking you through the DHD threads ...)

At 8:03 AM, Blogger Paddy O'Furnijur said...

Ah, that explains why you're wearing your birthday suit. (nods approvingly) Looks good on you.

At 8:07 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Hey, otta -

I did get that, and thankyouthankyouthankyou.

I thought we only stocked Dean0? Or, is Dean0 stocking us? *insert ominous music here*

paddy -


At 8:10 AM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

well, then you'll probably get it again, brenda, because i thought it didn't go through so i resent it.

whoops! oh well. never hurts to have a backup.

Public Service Announcement:

I was looking for a new avatar, and to my surprise there is an actual person in the performing arts named Brenda K. Starr.

Which, is odd in an 'Everyone can be found on the internet' way.

So, in all fairness, I must declare that I am not in fact Brenda K. Starr, who apparently has a real ability to carry a tune in a bucket, where I do not.

said rabbit (in a previous thread this morning)

Will Dwebbie go three weeks without "defamating" someone to the point of receiving yet another visit from green can man?

my guess is that she has been forced by what remains of her safety net to leave the shack in the woods and go someplace that they can keep a close eye (and handcuffs, if needed) on her.

forced non-defamating.

if that's true, she'll make it to the court date with no more visits from the men in the green cans.

on the other hand ... my hopes on her behalf are always dashed.

At 8:21 AM, Blogger Rabbit said...

forced non-defamating

Is that that a DEB-nition for


At 8:22 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

rabbit -


A whole new level of 'put a plug in it'.

(Ok, yes, I know, ewwww.)

At 8:25 AM, Blogger Rabbit said...

I was thinking of what she spews from her mouth..but your works, too

(Actually, that was a lie. I knew what I was doing & unlike DEB, I admit it.)

At 8:31 AM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

hee hee hee.

good one, rabbit!

u R phun knee.

At 8:37 AM, Blogger Rabbit said...

I think she will come back from CHELL's house with some pent-up fury about something & be defamtin' all over the tubes by Tues. morning at the latest.

I think we are going to see some unleashed ugly that will take our breath away.

At 8:37 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

otta -

I got the other emails - for some reason hotmail put them in the junk file, but I fixed that.

I really am going to get the CD replaced this week one way or another.

Because, I really am one of those people who only listens on download sites (which allow prelisten) to find new music I can go out and purchase. I even pay for shareware.

I have been called a putz.

At 8:44 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

rabbit -

Dunno, if she 'makes a connection' she might be too relaxed to do more than toke from her bong and generate schmaltzy love pomes.

I hate her poetry, but that would be a nice change from the unrelenting vitriol.

At 8:45 AM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

you're a good girl, brenda!

At 8:54 AM, Blogger Rabbit said...

Trust teh cycle.

She will have had some time away from her blog.
In "reality".
She will come back & want to "take it up a notch".
She will want to write her decision coyote crap to make some money.
She will tell herself that she is just going to read the other blogs to catch up.
She will troll them.
Then she will post on South(pawthetic)west.

Trust teh cycle.

At 8:59 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

rabbit -

You are correct.

Trust teh cycle. Oooommmm.

At 9:07 AM, Blogger Rabbit said...

Or not


At 9:08 AM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

in the lotus position, ottavarima chants:

i will trust teh cycle.
i will truuuuuuuuuuuuuust teh cyyyyyyyyycle.


ah. thank you for the reminder rabbit and brenda.

At 9:12 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Do any of y'all ever read the Banterist website?

If not, this guy is hilarious. My digital camera was nicked from me by a vandal (or my sister, whatever) and thinking about it reminded me of this post of his.

Really, go to this link Stolen Camera. You will be laughing for days, if not weeks.

At 9:18 AM, Blogger OttavaRima said...


i tried to follow your link, brenda, but it just came right back to this page.

is it just me?

by the way... thanks. just what a procrastinator like me needs. a link to more funny stuff to keep me busy with notwork.

(oh my. i'm channelling deb: it's all your fault that i'm procrastinating again.

At 9:18 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Well, I'm a doof.

Here's the real link to Stolen Camera.

At 9:22 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...


I live but to serve. And yes, it is my fault you are procrastinating.

Because it's about me.

Quick, I need an old Priest and a young Priest! I've been possessed by an evil debil!

At 9:29 AM, Blogger Rabbit said...

That cat camera was furry- I mean very- funny!

At 9:32 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

"seventeen pictures of a cat's *ss"

At 9:33 AM, Blogger Rabbit said...

I've asked DEBil both here & there if she has ever asked for an exorcism & if Holy Water sizzles when it touches her.

Cause we all know the DEBil made her do it.

At 9:35 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Pretty everything he writes is funny. I loved his travelog for China, esp. Also, the adventures of the leather pants that he unfortunately once owned.

At 9:35 AM, Blogger Rabbit said...

Brenda, did you say somewhere that you have a Boston Terrier?
Mine just turned 17.

At 9:37 AM, Blogger Ducky said...

ooooh - thanks so much for the link, BrendaK!

Must go rescue parrot now (our pet triumvirate is puppy, kitty, and bird) he's on his perch in the front yard taunting the starlings.

Will check in late tonight on our return from the big city (Portland).

RE: DEbil - SWP hits at all time low this morning. Betting Teh Cycle will hold in spades.

Flying away for now. . .


At 9:41 AM, Blogger BrendaK said...

rabbit -

Yes, I have a Boston Terrier named Jackson. He's a black/white/brindle and we have a mutual admiration society going.

I hope he lives so long as yours. Aren't they just super?

I could wax on eloquently about Jackson, but it would probably bore people.

When I get my stolen camera back (no cat's butts involved), I'll put pictures of him and my other dog, Satchmo, on my blog.

At 9:44 AM, Blogger Rabbit said...


At 9:47 AM, Blogger Rabbit said...

Back later

At 11:53 AM, Blogger McGehee said...

I was thinking of what she spews from her mouth.

You mean the Debonics?

At 12:29 PM, Blogger Serenity said...

I noticed that one of my neighbors has the same...and laugh at me for being stupid but where do you plug the ethernet cable in? If this remains an open source and I can get a free ride...I would LOVE to get rid of the DSL. Feel free to email me.

Happy Sunday - Pizza at 2:00.

At 1:11 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Hello, serenity and welcome to DHD.

pixie -

What kind of pizza?

At 1:29 PM, Blogger Pixie said...

Feta, artchoke hearts, procuito and pesto.

ha haaaaa.... it smells fantastic and it's not in the oven yet.

Come to mama!

At 1:33 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Pixie -

Since it's already past 4 p.m. local time for me, I think I may have to violate the Einsteinian time-space continuum to make it there for pizza.

(But save a slice of anything that's not Hawaiian or laden with anchovies for me just in case I figure out how to make it in time.)

Thanks, anyhow.

Serenity -


You'd need a wireless modem to tap into your neightbor's bandwidth. (Until they get wise and encrypt it or something.)

And to reply to your comment on the other thread, yup, we're aware of the Camp Kasczynski bit. She's referred to herself as the Unablogger, too. Some of the many reasons she's our "special girl".

BrendaK -

Heeeyyyyyy! Getting ready for your 'que tomorrow?

I was going to hit the road early this morning bound for GA with a well-marinated tri-tip and some mustard greens, but something else came up.

Forgive me?

[Bats eyes coquettishly]

At 1:37 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Fatwa -

Promises, promises.

Pitty-pat went my little heart, only find it dashed against the rocks of expediency.

Through my tears, I shall hoist a glass of merlot in memory of the time we might have had.


At 1:45 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Promises, promises.

I do so hate disappointing you. But I'll make it up to you somehow.

Leave us just say that a wee bit of guilt can be a wonderful, um, motivator for me. (Not that you're not sufficient motivation all by your little ol' self.)

FWIW, The "other matter" is not a redhead.

Nor a Viking.

FWIW, The "other matter" is not a redhead.

Nor a Viking.

Well, thank goodness. On both counts!

At 1:55 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Brenda -

Being unfamiliar with your local customs, is malt vinegar served with greens there?

(I strive to avoid being unintentionally gauche.)

At 2:00 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Fatwa -

You can have anything at all you want on your greens. We're easy 'round these parts.

(hahaha, I once again crack myself up)

At 2:10 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Brenda -

We're easy 'round these parts.

Isn't that promulgating a particularly ugly cultural stereotype?

[Perhaps I should investigate this matter first-hand....]

At 2:12 PM, Blogger SBH said...

Hello all, I sang last night but y'all missed it. I closed down the place all by my little lonesome.


Pixie, Did I hear you say you had a Passle O' Parley's?

At 2:18 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Hi, SBH! Sorry I missed your gig.

At 2:19 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Fatwa -

What -- I just mean we're laidback, that's all (snicker).

At 2:24 PM, Blogger SBH said...

Fatwa, It'll probably happen again. It's a habit of mine.

Good to see everyone again!

I have to go make the Sabbath run to Costco. Being an apostate is hard work. See you all later!

At 2:29 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

What -- I just mean we're laidback, that's all (snicker) veiled meanings there.

And I'm sure it's merely conincidental that your regional cuisine permits one to make reference to things like "whipping-up a fresh batch of sausage gravy".

(I was raised to be a gentleman, but on occasions, the inner rogue wins-out.)

Practicing my double "ententre's".

At 2:34 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...


Don't forget the moonpies, an Elvis favorite.

At 2:38 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Practicing my double "ententre's".

Yeah, like you really need to practice.

Aaah, yes...leave us not forget the Moon Pies.

At 2:39 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Fatwa -

Did you follow that link to the Stolen Camera I had up above? I think you would enjoy this guy.

Plus, "seventeen images of a cat's butt" is just funny. Almost as funny as weasels.

At 2:43 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Brenda -

Yep - I read that.

I recall a friend sending me the link to the leather pants on eBay some months ago. Funny stuff.

The weasels, however, are a bit of a sore subject with me; let us never mention them again.


At 2:52 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Oops, forgot.

Mums the word.

Hey, howsabout a cheese steak sammich?

At 2:55 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

We have those down here, too.

We are all things to all people down here in the New South!

At 2:59 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Cheese steak...isn't that a Philly thing?

At 3:02 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

I got connections -- we can have them Fedex'd in.

No one will ever be the wiser. If you know what I mean.

At 3:08 PM, Blogger Shelleigh said...

SBH: A Passle O'Parleys, indeed!

At 3:08 PM, Blogger Shelleigh said...

Gah - did it again - Shelleigh is Pixie. Grrrrr.

At 3:11 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

If you know what I mean.

I t'ink dat I take your meaning in a clear an' unabiguous fashion.

[Mimes straightening pearl silk tie]

At 3:17 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Pixie -

How's that pizza?

At 3:25 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Hey, pixie.

At 3:33 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

I'm jonesing for a burrito; back in a little while.

At 5:49 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Helllllooooooo - where are you people? I demand entertainment. Gerbil-based entertainment.

C'mon, c'mon. There is an obligation here, after all.

At 5:52 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Didn't see anyone here so I was went where the "Wild Things" are on the other thread.

Bren...nope...still no coffe today. Just having a good day alone in the hoseshed. All alone.


And waiting on a pizza watching "The Big Lebowski'

Can you think of a much better way to be happy?

At 5:53 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Need too find more change for a tip.

At 5:54 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Ok, I'm on my own here.

My current attitude is: hydrangia
My current color is: fnorb
My pet is: snoring

If I were a tree I'd be: taller
If I were a rock I'd be: fnorb

At 5:56 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Oh, there you are.

Happer? Hmmm. You got the movie, you got the pizza, you got off some of the meds...

A good day all around.

At 5:59 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Pizza's here. Back later

At 5:59 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

Here everyone is.

Hi everyone, but I can't stay.

Mamas mad because I used the pressure washer on her Honda and now it looks like a DeLorean.

Kidding, but I am dirty from head to toe and I promised the budding-chef (daughter Sarah) I'd look at her computer. Don't stay up too late.

At 6:01 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

Before I go, the daughter unit loaned me a Evanescence CD.

How did I miss this gals singing.

Like Enya Rocking

At 6:04 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Evanescence is great, but depressing on occasion.

My Hero is one of those.

At 6:04 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Sorry, My Immortal.

At 6:08 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

Yeah, I heard Bring me to Life at Lowes, (buying POWER tools) and asked the daughter who it was when I got home. (I had to sing some lyrics, ouch) it was one of the CDs I bought her for Christmas.

I don't think it sounds so much depression as, as, hmm


At 6:10 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...


StinkyHawk out BrendaK, don't forget to send some money to Jerry!

At 6:17 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...


At 6:42 PM, Blogger Mariposa said...

I think Hawk was referring to Jerry Lewis' Labor Day telethon for Muscular Dystrophy.

At 7:57 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Mmmm...that was some tasty pizza. now the big question...

What the hell is wrong with Fox and why have I had to go wothout
The Simpsons" for a month now while waiting for the season to start next week?

At 8:00 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

What network is carrying the telethon?

At 8:03 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Heck, I've been mooching off my neighbors' signal for 9 months now! More money for other bare necessities, you know, like beer :D

At 8:04 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

I would, but their signal isn't strong enough
