Rise and shine! Class has begun. Homework on my desk.
Christina Scabbia, easily one of the most beautiful women in the world, is the singer for “Lacuna Coil”.
I haven’t had enough coffee this morning to fill the lacuna of my cognitive thought.
I am hearing songs in my head...
“Lacuna Matata, what a wonderful phrase...”
Or the Beach Boys: “Aruba, Jamaica, ooo I wanna take ya, Lacuna, Bahama, come on pretty momma...”
Oh, it was her birthday, recently...so, there, it relates to current events.
The left has a mental lacuna
When it comes to their pet Big Kahuna
Tapping phones? Reading mail??
He should end up in jail
And I’m not talking later, but suna
izzat like driving your foreign car up a big hill: lacuna mountada?
I guess you are prejudice, but OK, she looks pretty. A++
do you always make up new lyrics? LOL A++
I like the Big Kahuna reference. A+++
hey, stranger! A++
Well, he was born in Hawaii. Allegedly.
I have written literally thousands of limericks since this thread began, most of them about Obama and none of them favorable. (Hey, why are there a bunch of men in black suits at my front door? And why does the guy in front have a battering ram??)
do we need to collect bail $??
It’s from one of the most interesting and thought-provoking movies of this century. Xs hasn’t watched it yet.
“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” tells the tale of a man who finds his ex has erased her memory of him and he decides to erase his of her. During the procedure, he has second thoughts and tries to “hide” her memories.
It examines whether it is better to experience love and pain or forget about them. And whether, without memory, we are destined to repeat our histories. And if love is stronger than all of that.
I haven’t heard of it either.
Oh, I’m an old hand at it!!
In the world of science-fiction fandom and re-enactors, it’s called “Filking”. Taking a popular tune and mucking about with the words.
As a performing minstrel, I’ve been doing it for decades!
It’s interesting. You basically see the love story told by way of Joel’s memories as they are being erased. Very non-linear and surreal.
well? since youse guys hid the wet bar, there ain’t much reason to show up now is there? and you let Inflatable Ingrid fly away....
Who hid it? It’s right where it always was. The janitor keeps taking Ingrid to the broom closet.
No, I have plenty of money in my bank account. It's not like they could wipe me out electronically by entering a remote command.
Whooops! (Good thing they closed Gitmo. Wouldn't want to go there.)
Gitmo has some nice digs......paradise island style.
I like the suna reference!
Thanks. You have excellent taste. (Or you’re high on Aleve.)
Suna as a rhyme for Kahuna is LOL funny.
last i heard of ingrid, after she was almost hit by that plane, was that the russians were using her as a whitewater raft in their annual rafting contest...
as for the wet bar, they started using stemmed glasses again...(sigh!)
It is cloudy and almost cool outside-I only came home from the woods because I have to research a product for a job...
And that word is a favorite of mine-a character in a favorite book uses it with sarcasm...
All those convenient lacunae
In AG Holder’s recollection
Were fabricated to assist him
In avoiding certain detection
And it worked for quite awhile,
His minions spied on the press-
Now he’s busted-how far it went
Is anyone’s educated guess
Now everything feels hinky
To Rosen, AP and their kin-
They know to trust big brother
Means that you will never win...
I saw those in the Skymall catalog!
I was going to, one of these days, show them off in class. but you beat me to it.
It’s actually some sort of glass/ceramic. It just looks like a red Solo cup.
Yesterday, I was able to do a good thing for a fellow contractor-he was about to be stiffed by a dishonest and greedy person who did me that bad turn a few years ago. A heads-up, a little info-he got paid right now in full, and voila, sinless revenge that left me smiling...
Have you seen Silver Linings Playbook yet? Language is not safe for kids but there is nothing gratuitous.
We babysat last night for my nephew: 3 little girls, 11, 3, and 1. Haven’t done that in years but we’re building family relationships with them. They were two broken kids who found each other and have amazingly risen above the horrible family circumstances they both endured as kids. I’m so pleased to see what they have become and their kids are darling.
Can’t say I have. I don’t normally watch romances.
It’s not a romance - more like all different relationships. It’s about dealing with the cards you have been dealt.
With which you have been dealt. Sheesh, I’m tired from the run and dogwalk and yardwork. Time to clean up and rehydrate!
How are your dogs doing? Is the newly-liberated one still on a mission of discovery?
ok then... i’ll have me a marterini or three....
If you spell the WFTD with a capital first letter then rotate that counterclockwise about 45°, and rotate the second last letter (in lowercase) 180°, and lastly replace the final letter with an ‘m’, you would come up with a synonym
Nothing really significant, just some random weekend musings :-)
It seemed fine to me as “cards you have been dealt.”
Reminds me of “Little Miss Sunshine,” another good movie about a family just trying to hold it all together. Very dark humor, especially the ending at the beauty pageant.
He is the happiest little thing, running around and playing. Big dog gets his morning weekday walks since he is supposed to be on minimal activity. He lost 2.6 pounds at the last weight check, 4 more to go and then we can treat him for heartworms. I’m still cranky about the company not covering his care since we’ve had him on preventive since adoption.
That’s because you are an engineer and appreciate brevity.
It sucks that they won’t pay-humans get damages for using products they knew perfectly well were dangerous-pets don’t have that option.
I’m glad your little dog is doing so well-I was just outside with Husky girl, and that bold raccoon was at the bird feeder again-it decided to quickly climb the nearest tree when the dog came rushing over-Husky girl thought that was great fun.
