    I'm flattered. Maybe even a little curious....but I'm with Audi, and unfortunately, she has something you don't have....

    Boobies.

    And you just can't compete with those!

    I hope you understand.

    "Hey there's my old '68 Malibu"
    "What'd that have in it?"
    "327"

    "Hey look Dennis there's your first fish. Deanna caught her first fish that day too."

    "That was taken on Easter Sunday around 1955. All dressed up for church.

    "There's Dean's '72 Nova. This was taken right after he came home from the Navy."
    "Yeah, that was before I hopped it up."
    "Didn't you bring home a whole carload of women that day?"
    "Boys! That's ENOUGH!" (<-- Mom/grandma/great grandma)

    "Whoo look at all those catfish. Those came out of the Smokey Hill River."

    "There's Dave waterskiing. That would have been about '76."
    "That engine right there is a 90 horse Johnson."

Its a hoot, usually I get hot coffee spilt on me, but the suit and the bubblewrap protect me.

    This kind of creative haiku is sure great fun, and really gets the frontal lobe stimulated to its highest capacity.

    ...the "Step and Repeat" command.

    Once stuck as an artist using copy and paste along with the "Snap" option to get things to line up just right, there was no greater moment than when my prececessors showed me a new way...a better way...a more civilized way. For many years now, ten-up business cards have shuddered in fear at how effortlessly I spawn them on my page. With the right measurements put in, Step and Repeat knows just how to set everything right in place. It's so smart!

    It also has come to my rescue when the mean old boss tries to accuse me of not lining up everything on the page properly, and a simple printout and comparison to the paper plate proves that the printer had burned the plate wrong.

    My underlings are seriously in awe whenever I show them this mighty power and make a whole page of items poof out of thin air. I'm telling you, Step and Repeat could seriously get you laid. :yeah:

    So Step and Repeat, you keep doing what you do, you pimp daddy of reproduction.

    Next time I'll take some time to give the proper tribute to "Command+Tab: The Slacker's Best Friend at Work."

    That's all, I gotta go.

    Woot Woot!! The Friday Train has pulled into the station!!

    Don't ask me, I just made it up.


    My husband has a big gig tonight doing his mostly Pink Floyd cover thing. Saturday afternoon a wake, then off to the restaurant. Sunday? I was thinking of forcing the hubby to go hiking.

        Holy Crap!! Aren't you all a lucky bunch! You've been blessed with a Bladez Trifecta of quotes! It's obviously been a good week for me!

        Thanks Kool, for putting my immature wit in the spotlight for all to enjoy! Oh...and for those other ones too I guess....

        OK FINE! I'll play nice!!

        Great quotes from everybody! Pretty much that entire rug thread belongs in here!!

        Tonight, Audi and I are going for dinner and drinks with a friend who just got married. Tomorrow is Thanksgiving dinner at her parents place, Sunday I get to relax for the day, then off to the Rise Against/Flogging Molly/Black Pacific concert sunday night. And monday I probably won't even put on pants! It's going to be a good weekend....despite the lack of paintball lol.

        Hope you all have a fantastic one. Happy Turkey Weekend to all my Canadian friends, and Nah-Nah to all my American friends who have to work on monday! (I'm kidding of course! You guys don't have to work. I give you all permission to take monday off as well. Tell your bosses I said it's ok. They'll understand).

              I still miss Uncle Carbunkle.

              What happened to her again?

              Didn't she come down with sanity, or something?

                Almost forgot: Happy Thanksgiving to all the Canucks out there!

                  Typ, did you pick up Gears by any chance?

                  And keep me posted on how Rage is. I saw some casts on YouTube of people playing it with commentary... may have to check it out.

                        4 player co-op campaign. Beast mode where you're the baddies, some new weapons and such. I like what they did to the new one.

                        But I agree the gamestyle is very different from anything COD related.

                        Oh speaking of (sorry for threadjack ladies and gents.... hmmm we need a videogame thread lolz) COD. You going to be getting Battlefield 3 or MW3?

                          Wow...you got snow before us, Lith??? That's weird! All this week it's been raining, and on the colder side (highs of around 8C - 46F) but nothing frozen yet. Snow usually flies a day or 2 before or after Halloween...
