Yet another example of the classic film Conan the Barbarian teaching a higher truth about life August 28, 2006

No DNA match, so I guess they’re going to release him. How do you like those eyes though?

I think there’s a snake inside trying to get out. Just like Thulsa Doom.

Nope nope nope nope.

You want reality? I’m given’ you gold plaited diapers … and you have 3 seconds to comply.

Sirens are going off in my neighborhood. The National Weather Service says that a storm southwest of here looks like it’s forming a tornado on their Doppler radar, and it’s headed this way.

Take shelter. Let the pool boy in as well. You can deal with him later after the crises has passed. Stay safe.

My wife and I grew up in Tornado Alley. Lived most of my life there.

The NW doesn’t have serious tornadoes that come onto the land. We have volcanos. I prefer volcanos to tornados.

5. John - August 28, 2006

But yeah, stay safe. Get under the stairs. Don’t forget the kids or the dog. Take a sweater, a flashlight, a drink, and a radio.

6. Michael - August 28, 2006

Sirens are still going off periodically, a funnel cloud has been spotted, but it looks like it’s passing west of us. It’s totally calm here.

Good advice John, except I don’t really think a sweater, flashlight and radio are all that important.

There go the sirens again!

My parents’ house was a mile away from this in 1989. Holy Spirit Catholic school was literally torn off of its foundations.

My wife and I sat one out in an Outback on Valentine’s Day in (I think) 2001. We went to see how my Dad was – his roof was partially missing. Of course, he’d slept through it with the TV on.

Best: He then says, “Well, since you guys didn’t get to eat, let’s go somewhere.” Cool as the other side of the pillow.

8. Michael - August 28, 2006

Sirens have stopped, the warning has expired. We didn’t even get a stiff breeze.

9. Lipstick - August 28, 2006

Neither did Mrs. Michael, poor thing.

10. Elzbth - August 28, 2006

Well, I hope you had a stiff drink anyway.

11. John - August 28, 2006

And the dog and the flashlight.

my knee is stiff.

14. Francisco Franco - August 28, 2006

Im still Stiff.

My wife and I sat one out in an Outback on Valentine’s Day

Since you brought it up, I took Mrs. Geezer to the Outback for dinner, the other day. We both got the special 12oz, (as recommended by Michael), Garlic Mashed and the Blue Cheese salad. No sides, just the bread. That salad was good… tangy, fruity and cheesy at the same time.

November of last year, there was a tornado that hit near Ames Iowa about an hour before kickoff for the ISU-Colorado football night game. We were partying in our decrepit old school bus, watching the weather radar on a TV sitting on a chair in front of the bus. Some of the wives wanted to head up to Hilton Colliseum (the college basketball arena) to take shelter in the designated spot, but we pointed out that the walk to Hilton would take about 15 minutes. Since the storm was forecast to pass by Ames withing 10 minutes, we simply observed that the menfolk had already decided that we’d rather be caught out in the open next to our school bus, a cold keg & a big pot of chili than to be caught out in the middle of the parking lot with only the beer we could carry. My sister-in-law drug her hubby to the shelter, but the rest of us grabbed lawn chairs & settled in for the show.

The tornado slid North & failed to touch down in Ames (like one of the forecasters predicted), so our cavalier attitude towards the storm didn’t cost us.

17. Russ from Winterset - August 29, 2006

Oh yeah, and ISU won the game big time. So we had that going for us. Which is nice. I think.

18. Lipstick - August 29, 2006

Geezer, Outback is very tasty and I would go there more except for the effect.

Special effects. . . like the need for an OutHOUSE.

Mr. Lipstick is the same. Sister Lipstick is the same. She calls it the Boomerang Effect. Revenge of the Roos.

19. Michael - August 29, 2006

Don’t pig out on the Bloomin’ Onion with that sauce. How many times do I have to say this? Just get the Outback Special; it’s a great value.

20. Lipstick - August 29, 2006

I did get the Outback Special! No onion!

Small steak, baked potato with butter, no dessert.


21. HayZeus - August 29, 2006

Eff that Outback special, man. Rack of lamb medium-rare ALL THE WAY! đŸ˜›

22. Retired Geezer - August 29, 2006

like the need for an OutHOUSE.

Sizzler affects me that way.
No complaints about Outback. Just like Michael said

While we’re talkin’ Food…
Anybody ever eat at Panera Bread?
They are little mini-bakery, sammich shops, usually with WiFi.

23. Muslihoon - August 30, 2006

You forgot not cheap, RG. I love their sandwiches, especially Chicken Frontega or something or the other. But with McD’s practically next door to it, my wallet likes to protest.

24. Lipstick - August 30, 2006

Well, y’all, I’m going to be out of internet range for about 10 days. Deep in the wilds of Colorado with no internet.

I’ll miss you goofballs.

25. John - August 30, 2006

They just opened a Panera near our house. Great French Onion Soup.
