WordPress is real hinky today.

The Michaels should probably think on putting a sno-cone machine in the bathroom.

a bowl of ice cream will work in a pinch, you’ll pardon the pun.

and yes, WP is goofy today

3. Cathy - October 27, 2007

We got fire extinguishers.

We got ice cream.

We got ice-crushing blenders.

Dave will have his own special Innocent Bystanders Apron

…and hand-towels, of course!

4. daveintexas - October 27, 2007

hinky.

I thought, until now, that was a southern expression.

heh

5. mesablue - October 27, 2007

Hinky is everywhere.

6. mesablue - October 27, 2007

Cratered is more southern, still makes me think of the moon.

7. daveintexas - October 27, 2007

I thought “cratered” was a northern expression for the Cubs.

My bad.

8. mesablue - October 27, 2007

Meeeeechigan!!!

The little brown jug stays where it belongs — again.

9. Michael - October 27, 2007

*high five for Mesa; happy dance around the pool table*

Another poker game here tonight. I’m gonna try to remember what steve_in_hb taught me and make a fortune. Maybe I can make enough to pay for the guy who just vacuumed out our dryer vent ductwork which, no shit, turns out to be 50′ long, snaking under the kitchen floor to the back patio with numerous right angle turns, and was almost totally clogged with frickin’ lint, and which actually requires a frickin’ support fan that we just had installed and which should have been installed when the frickin’ house was built, thereby explaining why it clogged and it was taking frickin’ forever for the frickin’ dryer to dry our frickin’ clothes and was wasting a frickity-frickin’ ton of frickin’ electricity.

Wish me luck.

10. Mr Minority - October 27, 2007

Michael,
Smart thing getting than cleaned out, clogged vents have been known to be great places for fires to start, lint is highly flammable.

Our laundry room is on a outside wall (which is always my preference), so it goes through 4′ of flex ducting, through the wall and out the vent – Free at last, free at last!

11. mesablue - October 27, 2007

Ooh, Nebraska just made it interesting.

Go Penn State!

12. Mr Minority - October 27, 2007

Oh, and as for the poker, it isn’t so much about winning as it is about having a good time. You can still have a good time and lose, it’s just a game and few bucks, the drinking, joking and smoking along with comradeship is what makes poker fun.

Unless you are playing strip poker, then Michael, you will be butt nekkid by 8:00.

13. Muslihoon - October 27, 2007

Because threadjacking is more accepted here than elsewhere, and not wanting to become a pariah (even though I still might), can someone explain the backstory to DiT’s last post on Ace (the open letter one)? Je suis un peu perplexe.

14. Michael - October 27, 2007

Mesa, it kills me to say this, but I think we want Ohio to win so we have a shot at the #1 ranked team in the nation at the end of the season, which gives us an outside chance at the #2 slot in the BCS title game.

15. Mrs. Peel - October 27, 2007

Musli, Jack has a running gag of having crushes on various women, and Suzanne Sena (whoever that is) is his latest “victim.” So Dave was just messin’ with him.

16. mesablue - October 27, 2007

Jack has put up several posts with extremely bad poetry that expressed his love for Ms. Senna.

DiT is just jealous.

17. Michael - October 27, 2007

Oh, and as for the poker, it isn’t so much about winning as it is about having a good time.

That’s the attitude of losers. I need the money.

18. mesablue - October 27, 2007

Michael, true. However, I find it impossible to root for OSU and PSU is a classy program that needs a lift.

Also, no way I’m getting my hopes up for the championship. If we beat OSU, that’s good enough for me.

19. Muslihoon - October 27, 2007

No more MKH?

Thanks for the explanation. I feel better now. Or, at least, more educamated.

20. Cathy - October 27, 2007

Unless you are playing strip poker, then Michael, you will be butt nekkid by 8:00.

It’s 9:00 p.m. here and I just cruised by the poker table and Michael still has all his clothes on. Dang! Everybody still has all their clothes on.

Ohio State is kicking Penn State butt. Just scored again.
OSU 17 vs. PSU 7

21. Mr Minority - October 27, 2007

I need the money.

To pay for that fancy kitchen remodeling job? Or are you just a whore to the capitalist system?

22. daveintexas - October 27, 2007

I do not … ah GAH GAHGAGAH GAJ GAH GAH GAH AHJGAHHHHHHH

23. Mr Minority - October 27, 2007

ah GAH GAHGAGAH GAJ GAH GAH GAH AHJGAHHHHHHH

Dave, you have either reverted back to being a baby or crapped you pants. Which is it?

24. daveintexas - October 27, 2007

that wounds me sir.

ouch.

ow.

owowow OWW OWW OWW OWW OWWWAA WAAA WAA WAAA WAA WAAA WAWAWAWAWWAAWWAWAWAWWAA!!!

25. mesablue - October 27, 2007

Vicodins and booze, again?

26. Michael - October 27, 2007

OK, so I lost the first game of Texas Hold’em. Now the suckers have been set up, and I move in for the kill.

Hah!

27. mesablue - October 27, 2007

There can be only one!

28. Michael - October 28, 2007

A good poker game is really all about male camaraderie, and having a good time. That’s the important thing, male bonding. It’s not about winning or losing a few bucks. Who cares about that?

29. Sobek - October 28, 2007

So I’m a little over a third of the way through my Farsi book (it’s very poor quality, BTW).

One thing that jumps out at me is every time I read one of the printed dialogues between some girl and some guy, I keep thinking “should she be talking to him, like some common whore? They’re not related, so she must be a hooker.”

30. geoff - October 28, 2007

owowow OWW OWW OWW OWW OWWWAA WAAA WAA WAAA WAA WAAA WAWAWAWAWWAAWWAWAWAWWAA!!!

I think JackStraw’s imitation is better.

31. Farmer Joe - October 28, 2007

Texas Hole ’em has ruined poker.

32. Bart - October 28, 2007

Farmer Joe!!!

Good to see you here.

33. Bart - October 28, 2007

Have you been here before, Joe?

IB.net is like a Seinfeld episode — we talk about nothing, yet our comments and observations about life’s trivialities are somehow interesting and insightful and charming.

Well, maybe not insightful…or chaming…or even interesting, but a little amusing.

34. Muslihoon - October 28, 2007

Er, I’m stuck in the filter. Please to let me out?

35. Lipstick - October 28, 2007

Michael is getting his butt kicked right now.

36. mesablue - October 28, 2007

Who cares about that?

I’ve got a poker game next week — you’re invited.

37. Muslihoon - October 28, 2007

1. Filter-master: please ignore or delete the comment stuck in the filter. This one is better.

2a. Sobek: Cheest naam-e ketaab?

2b. How many languages do you know?

3. While they passed through Turkey during a cruise, my parents got me a book in Turkish: Üç Kıtada Osmanlılar (Ottomans in Three Continents). From what I have read about the author (İlber Ortaylı), this seems to be a historical account. (They also got me another book: Gündelik Hayatta Mevlana ve Sufizm (Mevlana [Rumi] and Sufism in Daily Life) which seems interesting.) The best thing about Turkish is that comprehending it can open doors to learning other Turkic and Mongol languages, which occupy a large swathe of land from the Bosphorus to the Gobi.

Which reminds me: I need to get a Turkish dictionary. I had been using SesliSözlük (an online Turkish-English-German dictionary) until now.

38. mesablue - October 28, 2007

Ah, the Bosphorus in Spring.

Soviet warships cruising down the strait from the Black Sea.

Good times.

39. lauraw - October 28, 2007

SLC, Utah tops the list:

Hubby and I had been thinking of moving to the Raleigh area. It’s still kind of in the back of our minds but I think we missed our chance, selling-the-house wise.

40. daveintexas - October 28, 2007

Farmer Joe had another one stuck in teh spam filter but I fished it out

41. Farmer Joe - October 28, 2007

Thanks, Dave.

Bart, I’ve been here before. Can’t recall if I’ve commented or not, but I read.

42. Lipstick - October 28, 2007

GLAR, Mesa!!

43. daveintexas - October 28, 2007

I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Farmer Joe in Boston at the Palooza.

He is a fine feller, yes he is.

44. Mr Minority - October 28, 2007

Laura,
Raleigh NC is one of the most beautiful areas in NC. The cost of living is lower than Conn and the people are very friendly. I have to travel there about twice a year and have enjoyed myself every time. If I ever had to move from Texas, Arizona would be #1 and Raleigh #2.

45. Sobek - October 28, 2007

Musli, it’s Teach Yourself Persian. It’s usually a good series. Their books for Russian, Hebrew and Greek are helpful and well-organized (although I noticed a bunch of spelling errors in the Hebrew).

The Farsi book is disorganized. Starting in chapter 6 they ask me to translate sentences involving verb conjugation, but they won’t teach me how to conjugate until chapter 10. The dictionary in the back is frustrating, too, because it doesn’t have all the words I need to translate (and they should have put the vocab in the chapter anyway, rather than constantly making me flip to the back).

I complained about all of this to my wife, and she sarcastically suggested I get a different book, but, to my shock, there really aren’t that many Farsi instruction books sitting around Las Vegas bookstores.

46. Michael - October 28, 2007

I complained about all of this to my wife, and she sarcastically suggested I get a different book . . .

She might have been suggesting one of those sex manuals.

. . . but, to my shock, there really aren’t that many Farsi instruction books sitting around Las Vegas bookstores.

The lack of demand should tell you something.

47. Sobek - October 28, 2007

“The lack of demand should tell you something.”

You’re right, Michael. I’m going to move to Esfahan to solve my supply/demand problem. As an added bonus, that should take care of my whole “head attached to my neck” problem.

On the other hand, I might lose some of my internet access, so I’ll have to give this some more thought.

“She might have been suggesting one of those sex manuals.”

Not a chance. My wife knows I practically invented the expression “
It’s Business Time

48. Lipstick - October 28, 2007

Two minutes of heaven, baby!

49. Sobek - October 28, 2007

Two minutes in heaven is better than one minute in heaven.

50. Mrs. Peel - October 28, 2007

They write manuals for that?? With free body diagrams* and everything? Sweet!

(just kidding. Although judging by my past [not current] experience, some men could really use a how-to book on kissing.)

51. daveintexas - October 28, 2007

slobbery drooling, that’s a no no?

52. Michael - October 29, 2007

Although judging by my past [not current] experience, some men could really use a how-to book on kissing.

So true. A lot of guys do not know, for example, that it is important to immediately ram your tongue down her throat, so that she knows that you care.

53. Michael - October 29, 2007

Kidding aside, there is a basic Man Law about kissing women.

NEVER be the first one to use tongue.

Just wait.

She will start using her tongue, or she won’t. Either way, you are getting a whole lot of useful information.

Pope out.

54. Cathy - October 29, 2007

The Art of Kissing can be learned from this Book.
