Well, since Sulla posted on the last thread, thus killing it...



At 5:35 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...


where is everybody.


At 5:37 PM, Blogger Religious Zealot said...

I know that not everyone likes them, but is it possible to add smilies to the blog (or the ability for US to put smilies in our posts)?

Sarcasm and dry humor do not mix well with the written word.

At 5:43 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

I was still on the last thread. Gotta give out notices when they change

At 5:43 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

I agree. Look at how I misinterpretted something. It led to a misunderstanding and hurt feelings all around.

Much smooches and love Ott

Dear Blogger:

Bite me. But not just in the usual ways, bite me in the special ways that only you, and maybe a few Thai hookers are aware of...but either way...just bite me.

I offer for your amusement (and only because BrendaK said we couldn’t)

“She’s gone to penitentiary” by Hawk SP

She’ll be behind bars
Without a home
Because she took it too far

Now she’ll want to be free
But no, she’s held close
By that butch in her cell

In a green can and very handcuffed
She’s gone to penitentiary
Never looking back again
She’s gone to penitentiary

Home, don't it seem so far away
Oh, we're wearing orange today
In cell b-23
In cell b-23

Home, to a new and a shiny place
Make our bed, and we'll say our grace
Or the screw will Rodney King my ass
Or the screw will Rodney King my ass

And the internet is glad
They're cheering in America
Even Liberals agree
They're coming to America

Got a van to take her there
She’s gone to penitentiary
Got a cell with Butch to share
She’s gone to penitentiary

She’s gone to penitentiary
She’s gone to penitentiary
She’s gone to penitentiary
She’s gone to penitentiary
Today, today, today, today, today

Doctor Frisch oh can’t you see
You’ve lost your liberty
And now we I sing
Oh Gerbils sing

BrendaK, I could do this easy because it reminds me of the Michael Dukakis 88 campaign.

At 5:51 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

And take your double posting, and lockouts with you

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

Hawk...what song is that? Is it "Where the streets have no name?"

At 5:53 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...


They're coming to America


They're cheering in America

At 5:54 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

Religious_Zealot slaps Blogger around a bit with a large trout".

At 5:59 PM, Blogger Sinner said...

As fun as it is, I have nearly worn out my welcome at the coffee shop.

I guess I will go home to my loving family and no telecom...

I effing hate QWest

At 6:00 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


Way to go!

At 6:01 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


See you later! Have fun with the family.

At 6:01 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Hose -

YOU get the trout-slapping now.

You have riffed on the Great Diamond.

Oh, that is wrong. Very, very wrong.

But well done, all the same.

At 6:02 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Sinner - g'night!

We'll keep the away-from-home fires burning!

At 6:02 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Ok, so other than Joe who is crying into his milk, what's everyone watching on TV?

I ask because, I have a confession to make...

wait for it...

I am a reality tv cultural waste. I'm watching Project Runway reruns. Now you know who those idiots are that keep this trash on the tv. It's me.


At 6:03 PM, Blogger Religious Zealot said...

Ah, my true and nefarious plan is beginning to pay off.

Soon, VERY soon "slapping around a bit with a large trout" will become part of the DHD lexicon.

And then I will control everything!!!

Bwah ha ha!!!!

At 6:04 PM, Blogger Mariposa said...

Brenda! Why are you slapping hose for hawk's song?

I'm watching the Astrs-Mets. I saw Project Runway on Wed when it first aired :)

At 6:05 PM, Blogger Hawksp said...

And then she blamed Hose,


Tee Hee,

I going to go watch a movie with the family. I won't tell you which one it is, but you English Pig-Dog Kn-Nig-iTs, have a fun Nite.


At 6:06 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

seriously, hose and hawk and RZ. please stop it. i'm laughing too hard.

i don't even really know what about. but there has been some wine involved. i will say that.

and can we all just say going forward that never ever ever will any VBSer have any snarky awful thing to say about any other VBSer?


you're not deb. you're not chell. you're not gideon. or any other of those idiots.

therefore, no matter what you say on this blog it's totally acceptable, right? 'coz we're all friends. all friends who think deb should not be teaching.


and we're all friends who like neil diamond!

(just check my profile if you think i'm kidding).

As a page that aches for a word
Which speaks on a theme that is timeless
And the one God will make for your day

At 6:06 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

We could all get webcams and turn DHD into a reality show.

But then I'd probably have to wear pants while I'm posting.

At 6:06 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

(Brenda slaps self on forehead)

Sorry, Hose!

Hawk, you get all the 'credit' here. It really is well done. I'm just a Coming To America fool.

At 6:09 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

otta -

BE is my absolute favorite of his. I can't find it on my, uhem, favorite places to listen-but-not-download- illegally-no-no-not ever.

Fatwa -

Really? Speak on. I'm in my PJs, there are feeties involved with these.

At 6:09 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

I think I see the problem behind my last-posts thingy.

Howard Dean said it best.

I question the timing.

At 6:10 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...


yeah. not only pants, but blouses and lipstick, too.

At 6:11 PM, Blogger Religious Zealot said...

I saw Sulla post and I immediately hit the back button (to go back to the main page) to get to the new thread.

Of course, sinner hadn't MADE a new thread.

Which, of course, earns him a vigorous slapping around with a large trout.

At 6:13 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Sulla -

What? Oh, gosh, are you starting another thread again?

Sulla, it's not you, it's the imps of the perverse. That also explains why every single plane flight I take, the terminal is the very, absolute last one on the hall.

Imps. Of the perverse.

And snakes.

At 6:13 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

project runway reruns...

not just you, brenda.

the lovely missus does too.

At 6:15 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

I'm not putting on a blouse and lipstick for nobody.

At 6:16 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Sulla -

It's a conspiracy. I can tell you this, because there is nothing anyone can do.

We control your television set. We control the vertical and the horizontal.

At 6:17 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

unless they ask REALLY nicely.

and Hose introduces me to whoever knows that Thai technique he taunted blogger with.

At 6:17 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

But Sulla, you'd look so pretty if you'd just put on a little makeup.

At 6:18 PM, Blogger Sulla said...


whoever controls the horizontal and vertical...

when Heidi appears, she controls the perpendicular.


At 6:18 PM, Blogger Religious Zealot said...

I'm not putting on a blouse and lipstick for nobody.

I missed otta's original post on this, thus your statement (without knowing the prior reference) is quite strange.

I was wonder "who, exactly, is wanting sulla to wear a blouse and lipstick."

And it sounded a lot like Joan Crawford screaming "No wire hangers, ever!!!"

At 6:18 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...

You guys are a riot!

And NO! I do not want to see Sulla in lipstick and a blouse. Now I've got the legs, but I refuse to shave, so no mini-skirts over here either. Just go away with that idea.

At 6:19 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

Lord, I apologize for that last joke...

git r done!

At 6:20 PM, Blogger Sulla said...


panty hose cover a multitude of leg hairs.

just ask Joe Namath.

At 6:20 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

not the wire hanger, mommy!

At 6:20 PM, Blogger Religious Zealot said...

NO blouse and lipstick EVER!!!!!!

At 6:21 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

the vertical and horizontal

okay. it's like my friends' three year old today who, when he was asked what meemaw land says, replied:


At 6:21 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

We could perhaps call the show "The Nutty Ex-Professor".

Or "Band Of Gerbils".

And yes, BrendaK, the jammies with footies will work nicely for you. That'll be part your schtick.

(We could also market a line of "BrendaK BlogWear" for women.)

At 6:21 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


But I made a promise to my sponsor at Pantyhose Anonymous... never again! I will not fall off that wagon. Are knee-highs okay?

At 6:24 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

fatwa -

Can we include the black with bits of lace number? 'Cause, sometimes a girl just wants to look pretty.

Fortunately, (harking to the way-back machine), I do not own a red teddy.

The footies are the comfort jammies.

At 6:25 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

can i just say i am laughing really hard?

webcams and all our boys in blouses and lipstick in the vertical and horizontal.

seriously. i don't even know what that means. but the dog wants to be walked.

this doggy bed rest is just like 7 years ago when she got spayed and couldn't chase the ball for 14 days.

she would grab the hem of my shorts and try to drag me to the door.

you'd think she'd be past that now that she's the freaking equivalent of a 56 year old human.

but no.

no. she's not.

At 6:25 PM, Blogger Shelleigh said...

knee highs are just a gateway to peds.

Just my opinion.

At 6:26 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Joe -

Kneehigh hose are such a great-gramma kind of thing.

Good thought! We'll want to draw in the older demographic, too.

At 6:26 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

Not the soft pillows!

At 6:27 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

otta -

Aw, that's just so cute. I love puppies.

At 6:28 PM, Blogger Pixie said...


At 6:29 PM, Blogger Pixie said...

Freakin Shelleigh. She sucks.

At 6:29 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

BrendaK -

When you get your camera back, you'll need to send samples of both for, er, market research.

Why am I suddenly reminded of gym class?

At 6:30 PM, Blogger Religious Zealot said...

No... lipstick... or blouses.

What are lipstick and blouses doing in this thread when I told you: no lipstick or blouses EVER?

I work and work 'till I'm half-dead, and I hear people saying, "Sulla's killing the thread." And what do I get? Sinner... who cares as much about the traffic I give him... as he cares about me.

What are lipstick and blouses doing in this thread?

Answer me.

I post beautiful comments, and you treat them like they were something Deb would say. You do.

Top flight commentor and fill-in moderator and you want me in lipstick and a blouse.

We'll see how many other users you have hidden somewhere wearing lipstick and blouses.

We'll see... we'll see.

Get off of that computer.

All of this is coming out. Out. Out. Out. Out. Out. Out of the closet.

You've got any more? We're gonna see how many users with lipstick and blouses on that you've got in your closet.

Lipstick and blouses, why? Why?

(with apologies to "Mommie Dearest")

At 6:30 PM, Blogger Sulla said...


"we control the horizontal/vertical" - the Outer Limits tv show introduction.

cuz every week you were treated to twilight-zone-esque views of bizarro-world stuff.

I loved it.

Night Gallery, not so much. there was this one where a really creepy obsessive guy gave a girl a mouse pendant, and when she tried to break up with him he pulled the pin on the thing and it wouldn't come off.

and it grew.

and it grew.

and things got messy.

I hate girl-eating mice. Last time I was at Disneyland and Mickey was hitting on my woman, I--

well, I put the stick back in.

though the coroner never found it.

ok. not sure where that came from.

Lord, I apologize for that last joke...

At 6:32 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

scary thing is, RZ...

I could hear Joan Crawford saying that.

or whoever it was who played her in the movie.

scare ree!

At 6:33 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Joe -

Sample pix of you will not be required.

Are we very clear on that?

At 6:33 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

I was jus updating my blog and have been trying to post pictures to it, yet I couldn't get the damn thing to work. What the hell? any ideas?

At 6:33 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

Or Kathy Bates.

"You! Mister MAN! Time to say hello to Mister Sledgehammer!"

At 6:34 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Sulla -

OMG, that's the one I remember best. The girl was so dismissive of the guy, obviously there for his money.

Creepy, creepy, creepy.

At 6:35 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

I'm watching "Wallace and Grommit" on the Sundance channel. Why would I do that when I own them? I dunno. Beats the news, and there is shit all else on.

At 6:35 PM, Blogger Religious Zealot said...

Religous_Zealot slaps hosedragger's blog around a bit with a large salmon.*

Anything for the DHD cause (bats eyelashes at the cutie from OH with long hair).

At 6:38 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Sorry, getting caught up.

i see brenda. I get slapped around, but Hawk gets told it is the most awesome thing you have ever read and you now want to have his babies. I am just speechless. That's it. I am taking my mitt and ball and going home

At 6:38 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Oh...and that's my first base too. If you want me, I'll be in my trailer

(Stomp, stomp, stomp, CRASH, Slam)

At 6:40 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Pants? Blouse? What are you Teh Crazee??? I am a proponent of Natural Computing. Down with pants...up with skirts!!!!

At 6:40 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...


I didn't say I liked it, but it was well done.

Didn't I tell you that when I thought it was you?

I'm sorry, please come back, you can be the (whatever position is best in baseball).

Verticle shimmy and the horizontal bop.

"Ah, Mr. Dragger, you're really needed on the set right away."

And BrendaK, I admire your dedication to our cause.

At 6:44 PM, Blogger Religious Zealot said...

You forget.

Your trailer IS first base!!

At 6:48 PM, Blogger Religious Zealot said...

You want the blouse and lipstick?

You can't HANDLE the blouse and lipstick!!!

(oops, getting silly)

At 6:50 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

RZ -

Silly, yes.

Nonetheless, it made me *blork* coffee through my nose.

At 6:50 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


What was that? I was getting the camera and ... aww... but I was going to look real neat!

At 6:51 PM, Blogger Religious Zealot said...


Anyone there??

Is this thing on?

See, here I'm now by myself, uh, er, talking to myself.

That's, that's chaos theory.

At 6:52 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Nope...just wont load the images

At 6:52 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Curious...BrendaK makes reference to the "black bits of lace number" and everyone disappears.

At 6:53 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Nope...I am hre. Sitting around in all my butt-nekkidness

At 6:53 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Joe -

You'll go with the blouse and lipstick but not the l'eggs?

That's just...and you don't even shave to go biking!


At 6:54 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Doesn't say much for my charms, does it?

But only for a few ...

Friday and Saturday television viewing is the absolute worse. I wish I watched sports. At least then I would have something to watch.

Being laid up SUX!!!!

At 6:55 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

I need to get one of those avatars like blizzardlane's.

At 6:56 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

Are you kiding? The mere thought of Brenda swathed all in silk and lace made me speechless and I had to excuse myself for a minute.

At 6:57 PM, Blogger Religious Zealot said...

I wondered where sulla went to.

He must have broken down and gotten the lipstick and blouse (and a large trout).

OK. I need to stop posting.

THIS is one of the reasons I don't tell people my occupation.

I tend to get silly (especially at night).

At 6:57 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

BrendaK -

Au contraire.

Y'know those rope climbing / jungle gym references that keep being made?

You know...

At 6:57 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Ooo...Zoolander is on

At 6:59 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


No, no, no. I said no to the lipstick, the blouse, and miniskirts for me. Well, I said no to Sulla doing that stuff.

Sulla, don't do that stuff!

Now, this l'eggs question was a whole 'nother deal. But Fatwa says no to the test shots, so, let's just say the casting director wanted to go a different way.

At 7:00 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

Man, I hate working weekends.

Silly is our game, DHD is our name.

Aaaaall are welcooooome. Come into the light!

Oh, hey, re your earlier comment, when engaging in sarcasm that you want to point out, just type /sarc at the end of your comment.

Certainly I have to sometimes. It must be my rarified nature. Yeah, that's it. That's the ticket.

At 7:00 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...


i'm drunk? yesh. mmmmaybe sshooo.

but the dog is walked and heppy for hte moment. and that is huge around here.

plus i can't stop laughing because you tricksey VBSer gerbils are so funny.


At 7:01 PM, Blogger Sulla said...



At 7:01 PM, Blogger Religious Zealot said...

Which, hopefully, makes up for that image of naked pictures of Deb (and Helen Thomas(?) that you were talking about last night.

I'm zipping back and forth between UCLA vs. Utah and USC vs. Arkansas.

Again [ahem] West Si-ide! Although I hate USC, they're still winning.

You make Cthulhu scared.

And that comment about Helen Thomas was quite unnecessary.

Le Tigre every time.

Excuse me. My cell phone's ringing, but it got lodged in my fingernail.

Brenda: freckled

what color was your muse's hair, Dragger?

At 7:07 PM, Blogger Religious Zealot said...

I wasn't the originator of said comment about Helen Thomas.

I'm pretty sure that was hose from yesterday's encounter with Deb.

At 7:07 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Joe -

Oh, oh, wait. I have to hold up my side.

Ahem -

USC sucks. Can you believe those uniforms? Could those be more clashing? And what's with that really big guy on the end? Hey, batter, batter, batter, sa-wiiing.

that's all i'm sayin'

At 7:09 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Oh, freckled. Well. (blush).

I had no idea. I thought you had an inhouse muse. With freckles.

Well...moving right along. How's the weather around there? Monsoon season is winding down around here.

[Affects stage whisper]

Pssst! Hey, guys!

Whatta ya wanna bet that email Ottava just sent BrendaK has something to do with us being slightly obnoxious right now?

At 7:14 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

o holy man. 119 and 119 in two posts at once.

i realize the irony that my post (if someone else is not going to post before me) will ruin it.

but whatever.

as sulla or hose or whomever has already noted, i'm drrrrrunk.

At 7:15 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Otta -

You are my new best friend and favorite blogbuddy - check your beeeeeee mail, too, though.

At 7:17 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

no it doesn't have anything to do with obnoxiousness.

because quite frankly, you never make me think of obnoxiousness (did i spell that right?)

i just sent her something that maybe only she will appreciate.

i'll tell you this. i have been ridiculed more than once for my love of neil diamond.

and anyone following the thread would know what i just sent.


At 7:18 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Joe -

Oh, yes.

And look at those kneehi's - did their gramma's dress them? And are those PADS on their BUTTS? What, they land there so often then need pads? And the toes on their tennis shoes turn up. Which is kind of, you know.

At 7:19 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


[louder stage whisper]

What is this, junior high? Oh, right, it's the intertubes. I believe they are trading lovenotes about Neil Diamond (though why, I know not).

At 7:21 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

otta -

Yes, the masses are cruel to the lovers of Neil Diamond. But secretly, those same masses, are rocking out to Forever in Blue Jeans, I'm just sure of it.

Come out of the closet, secret Neil Diamond lovers everywhere!

At 7:23 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...


i'm surprised at you!

you of all people, i would expect to know what just transpired.

who can can guess. seriously.

At 7:25 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

If anyone's interested, I'm presently enjoying the hell out of an internet radio station which plays only stuff featuring Hammond B3 organ:

They probably won't be playing "Cracklin' Rosie", 'tho. (I figured out the Neil Diamond thing right after I hit "publish" on my previous. D'oh!)

At 7:25 PM, Blogger Hosedragger said...

They are passing notes about us hunkie man types

At 7:26 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

Joe -

That's so wrong. Did I turn on you and root for USC? I did not.

Didn't I say you'd look nice with a blouse and lipstick? Didn't I give you cookies and milk?

No appreciation. Where's the looooove?!

At 7:26 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...

West Si-ide! UCLA is WAC, or beats WAC. Wait, isn't Utah in the Mountain something or other? I can't keep track of those little schools.

At 7:26 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

fatwa, we love you.

but who cares about an organ when neil diamond's in the room.

i'm just asking.

At 7:28 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

They are passing notes about us hunkie man types

Hey...that's offensive to those of us of Hungarian descent!

/sarc - "Hunky" being an ethnic slur.

He was with the resistence after WWII. He would tell about the machinations they would go through trying to convince the American gov't. that they had a much bigger force than they really did. An eyeopener on Real Politik for me.

Whu-u-u-uh? How about best Neil Diamond tribute movie?

Saving Silverman

I can't stand the movie except for the last ten minutes when the man himself shows up.

It's interesting to note that less than a month ago the average amount of comments per thread was between 5 and 10.

And only when Deb did something outrageous did it increase.

Now even open threads regulary get to 100 posts (even without Deb participating).

As Carlito would say - that's cool!

At 7:45 PM, Blogger Religious Zealot said...

Well, for us East Coaster's (East Siii-iiide) (Or was that East Seeeeiiid?), it's bed time.

See you all later.

At 7:47 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Bye, RZ.

At 7:47 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


No kidding! We had one thread that was over 600 posts and it was mainly just seeing how much we could make the other people laugh.

At 7:48 PM, Blogger BrendaK said...

RZ -

I'm right behind you.

Otta -

Check your email, just because it would beeeeee lovely.

Fatwa -

I did say ALL music except rap. Truit in advertising.

See y'all later!

'Night RZ!

At 7:48 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...

'Night Brenda!

At 7:50 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Hey, Joe -

I hope your bro's having a pleasant time right about now. (He had a date tonight, yeah?)

Nighty-night, BrendaK!

At 7:50 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


I hope so, too. The longer he stays out, the better.

At 7:52 PM, Blogger Dianna said...

I just had dinner; the medium black dog is in disgrace; the Male of the Species is out washing the car to work of some of his mad; the corgi is hiding in the corner.

And everyone else is going to bed? When I need comfort and distraction?


At 7:52 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


How's the weather in the midwest right now? No rain or tornados?

At 7:52 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Joe -

Roger that.

At 7:54 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


Good. The bro might have some perambulatin' and hand-holding going on in the Windy City.

At 7:56 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Dianna -

You showed up just as a few folks left; good evening to ya!

Joe -

It was dreary for most of the day; overcast/light rain. Supposed to be more of same tomorrow.

Has it cooled off out there at all?

At 7:58 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


No. We thought we might get a break from Hurricane John, but no heat relief yet. Still, much better than most of July.

At 8:03 PM, Blogger OttavaRima said...

brenda! don't go away yet!

i have nothing new in my ottava mail box!

red red wine! the memories won't go!

At 8:05 PM, Blogger Dianna said...

Good evening, Fatwa! May it be a merry one for you.

The Male of the Species and I retired to the back yard for a cigar, and the medium black mutt decided that this was the ideal opportunity to climb up and have at the plates.

The Male of the Species, who has rather a severe idea of how dogs ought to behave, has taken this badly.

So the mutt's in her bed; the corgi thinks all this bad karma could fall on him at any moment, and I'm not getting the male attention I want. So I shall pout.

Joe -

I'm hoping the rainy season starts early out there as it could mean a trip to L.A. with very handsome remuneration for a couple of months work.

A friend I used to work for freelance may have a couple of large construction projects which he'd fly me in to manage. And with the dodgy economy here, that would be excellent.

Plus, I could spend time with some friends I really miss in SoCal.

At 8:08 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


I hope it gets cooler too, but September usually isn't kind to LA. We're expecting triple digits for most of next week.

At 8:10 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Dianna...don't pout. Maybe we can all help you out re the male of the species.

Of course, knowing DHD, this could all wind up like a sitcom.

Or end very badly.

"Ya pays yer money, ya takes yer chances"

At 8:11 PM, Blogger Dianna said...

Considering that the unread books are in a lost box, I'll take that chance, Fatwa.

At 8:13 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


It's okay. I'll raise a glass (or two) of merlot to your kind company.

At 8:14 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Joe -

So I heard; I remember those lovely days of 106° in the SFV during September.

Dianna -


[Takes big swig of Vernor's]

At 8:15 PM, Blogger Dianna said...

Joe, you and Fatwa count as excellent company in my book.

We had a bottle of Hawk's Crest 2003 Cab with dinner; for some reason, it seemed just a little off.

I'm eyeing the bottle of port speculatively.

At 8:17 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


Any port or cognac after dinner really hits the spot. Sometimes a Spanish madiera adds a little spice.

fatwa, being a freelancer and knowing the feast or famine nature of the beast, i will pray that things work out for you the way they need to.

the dog, too. she has a crush on you ever since i gave her that kiss last week from her VBS gerbil Uncle Fatwa.

Helen Thomas.



an infinite number of dark realms, and I had to land in one that gives ME nightmares.

At 8:20 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


Good news for the dog, huh? Only a spot of arthritis?

At 8:20 PM, Blogger Dianna said...

A miracle! The Male is taking me for ice cream!

I'm saved!

Take good care.

At 8:21 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


Were you able to discover, through your dark arts, whether Helen Thomas spawned the wart on her nose, or 'twas the other way around?

At 8:21 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...

Bye Dianna!

At 8:22 PM, Blogger Cthulhu said...

I thought Dagon was responsible.

Not even he would hit that.

At 8:23 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

[Grinds toe sheepishly into hardwood floor]

Aww, shucks, Dianna.

I'm also partial to merlots and (reds in general).

Ottava -

Aww, shucks re the wee beastie, too; I'm pretty much an idiot for dogs.

I sincerely appreciate your good wishes, too.

At 8:23 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

New thread, if you want it.

At 8:24 PM, Blogger Sulla said...

sorry - I was in a meeting.

"Virtual August" keeps stretching further into September.

At 8:24 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


Evil, not crazy, right?

At 8:24 PM, Blogger Fatwa Arbuckle said...

Bye, Dianna!

At 8:26 PM, Blogger Cthulhu said...


you speak truly.

Even Dagon has his standards.

A world of half-Helens...


At 8:27 PM, Blogger Cthulhu said...


omnipotent slime-god, and I'm playing straight-beast to a Muppet.

Would that I could feast upon your inedible felt-lined soul.

At 8:29 PM, Blogger joeschmo1of3 said...


I humbly beg your indulgence. Plus, new thread [bump]


You're very welcome!
