Just debating whether I should come back later when it has, or stick around and watch you all bounce.

:D

SaraP

I don't bounce.

*pouts*






I pounce.

slcboston
03-05-2011, 09:13 PM
I've seen horses. All my life. I have never, ever seen one pounce.


Get one into a good trot though and they do a bit of bouncing. As do their riders.

:D

SaraP
03-05-2011, 09:21 PM
I'm not a horse.

*pouts even more*






I'm a unipony. How many uniponies have you seen? Huh?

slcboston
03-05-2011, 10:05 PM
In real life? None.


But... I've seen lots of other kinds of ponies, and your AV shares distinct horse-like traits.


... On the other hand, you could be more like a My Little Pony... and they somehow managed to do all sorts of things, like bake cookies without the use of opposable thumbs or even graspable hands, so I suppose there is *some* leeway here.


On a completely unrelated note - why is the spell checker rejecting "opposable" when I've even gone to the trouble to look it up??

Hi Sara. :)

He has laptop issues? Oh. For some reason, I saw a picture flash up for a second before he freaked out. I thought he'd discovered something he liked and was doing a little happy dance.

SaraP
03-06-2011, 05:06 AM
Um... doesn't look like a happy dance to me. :Shrug:

Neurotic

But look at him. He's jumping up and down, pumping his fists and grinning. It's like his favourite soccer team just won the superbowl.

Or, you know, whatever sport is associated with the superbowl.

Neurotic
03-06-2011, 08:25 AM
I'm a girl, and I'd totally use a smiley depicting a little green guy's first encounter with one of the internet's more stimulating pictures. Stealing it from a girl doesn't automagically make it innocent. :D

You too? My man thinks the same thing ... so I ask him where he gets this idea and he says it isn't an idea, it's hope that I'd wake up all happy and chipper. Hope. He's been holding on to that hope for 15 years now, hee hee. :)

I see your snow and raise you ice and slush. And floods.

Back on Groundhog Day, my little one kept insisting that meant Spring was just around the corner. I told her, Phil *lies*, especially around here, but she remained very optimistic we weren't in for six more weeks of winter.

*checks calendar*

On the plus side, that only leaves us two more weeks to go.

I concur. It isn't until the sun reaches its apex that I'm at full chipper strength :D

Only kind of chipper I believe in is the kind that comes in handy for disposing of those pesky bodies making mulch for the garden.

It certainly doesn't represent a potential mood.

:D

Neurotic
03-06-2011, 11:15 PM
I'm not really a chipper person by nature. And I'm not really an awake person until late morning/early afternoon.

Now, about this Groundhog Day thing. Every year you ask a fat rat of some sort, who has a tendency to lie, how much longer winter will be?

I learn more about my soon-to-be new culture every time I come in here.

slcboston
03-06-2011, 11:20 PM
Yes, that sums it up beautifully.

:D

In theory, if he sees his shadow, then it's 6 more weeks of winter. If he does not, then it is an early spring.

In practice, in my corner of the world, it doesn't really matter one way or the other. We're getting more winter.

:D


... though I do recommend the Bill Murray film Groundhog Day. Should help illuminate you on the cultural aspects a bit more.

:D

Neurotic
03-06-2011, 11:32 PM
I've seen the movie. According to Mr Me, that's an actual thing people televise. The PopPanPerPoo rodent in the movie, I mean. I assumed he was just having a little fun with me. Like drop bears. Only with a movie.

The only thing I can really remember from it is Bill Murray driving off a cliff or something and some weird-looking muppet thing which may or may not have been in that movie. :D

slcboston

:Wha:

No on the muppet. I think you're confusing Groundhog Day with Caddyshack, and the groundhog with the gopher.


And your resident kilt-wearer was not pulling a drop bear on you - the festival is *very* much the way it is portrayed in the film. They make a big deal out of it, every year, and it is indeed televised. All this over a fat rodent.

.... much like during election years.

:D

Neurotic
03-06-2011, 11:52 PM
Maybe I just thought it looked like a muppet. I've never seen Caddyshack. :Shrug:

Now that you mention it, you guys do seem to make an awfully big deal out of big, fuzzy liars, don't you? :D

slcboston
03-06-2011, 11:55 PM
Like your politicians are any different?

:D

Neurotic
03-06-2011, 11:59 PM
Not even a little bit. :D

We just don't sacrifice whole years worth of what could otherwise have been good TV viewing by taking proper shows off the air and watching our liars preen for the camera. I think they get half an hour for a couple of months leading up to an election on a couple of channels, but I'm not sure. Since this is apparently an election year, though, we'll find out.

slcboston
03-07-2011, 12:10 AM
Oh, we generally only interrupt regular tv once a year. Slightly more often in an election year.

What I really object to are the ads, though. I normally defend the right to free speech above and beyond most other rights... but in this case, I think they ought to be banned, period. They should be allowed one newspaper column, sort of a letter to the editor kind of thing outlining their positions, the programs they support, and what they want to accomplish.

And that's it.

And if people can't be bothered to read it and be informed on the candidates... well, it wouldn't be that much different than it is now, other than I wouldn't cringe every time something I was watching went to commercials.

:Soapbox:

03-07-2011, 01:56 AM
So what you're saying is there was a statistically insignificant chance that you might not have misinterpreted. And no scientifically sound way of proving you're telling the truth. Unless you have some way to peek into the alternate reality where I decided not to worry about clarifying? If so... WANT!

I stand by my choice to be more specific.

I was really hoping you'd fall for the Scout thing. I did go camping a lot as a kid, though. Surely that must count for something. Isn't there something inherently trustworthy about someone who enjoys the outdoors? Maybe? :D

I have yet to find a way to use that duck. It peeks, not me. And the wretched creature won't pass on its information.

slcboston
03-07-2011, 02:31 AM
Methinks you need to talk to the duck then.

You aren't a bad mama. Bad mamas don't care their baby screamed all night. We're doing some teething around here, which can be incredibly difficult to manage, too.

One thing I've learned from having kids: If all else fails, sometimes a warm bath, even in the middle of the night, can do what nothing else will.

Our old car seriously needs work. The windshield wipers don't work and it's quite dangerous to drive when it's pouring. That's just one of the things.

Besides, we made some money with the sale of our old apartment. A huge chunk will go towards the new place, but we decided to get a loan very similar in amount to the one we had before, and use the money for other things, like the car.

It's pretty impossible to kill this thread.

I would hope so. I'd be lost without it. :D


I thought about this thread today. Does that count? :D

Thoughts are not actions, so no. ;)


I HAVE A DATE!

:hooray: :snoopy: :hooray:


:TheWave:


Awesome! New wheels, new digs, congrats Sara. :)

Let it be known that Cray's idea of pretty and shiny and cuddly is... erm... unique.

You were told. Nay, you were *warned.* And still, you taunted. You put forth foolish bravado...

And I think we *all* paid for it.

:tmi

let this be a lesson to you: never again

I have a feeling I should be glad I hadn't posted lately?

I have a theory. Not only is cray's power to disturb limited to 'unique' reppies, whenever you get crayed, you get an excuse to beg for more reps to shove it down your list far enough that it no longer assaults you every time you open your CP. So in reality, as horrifying as some of those reps can be, each has the power to drive up your rep count by more than its face value.

I think this is a 'the lady doth protest too much' situation. You want the cray-reps.

Seconded.

:D


But I could use more reps. It's still there when I check.

(mind you, this one's sort of amusing and not as visually disturbing as the rest... and one heck of an incentive to get off my butt and hit the pool today... but still.)
