I am mildly wistful that I do not have any friends named Bun. And Bun makes me think of Vietnamese street food, like a good bowl of bún thịt nướng. Which reminds me that I don't have any bún, either. This makes me a little sad, and hungry. Hmm. Perhaps I shall repair to my favorite Vietnamese restaurant, order some bún thịt nướng and inquire if anyone is named Bun. Oh, and contemplate my good fortune (perhaps) that I am not plagued by dingbat doppelgangers.
What a nice trip, on the balance, don't you think? From asshats to happy kitteh, it had much to rejoice over :)

When Deborah Harry sings the word "Rapturrrre..." yeah, well then I start to believe it. But not in a Harold Camping sort of way :)
(facepalm) Maybe that comes from parents who are too sacred? lazy? to really explain how things really work in the natural world? that it is easier to just scare the bejeebers out of the kids by fiat instead of dosing it with common sense? Ai yi yi...soon, they will be wearing hazmat suits as the new school uniforms.
Wow! That was an epic tale, I laughed, I cried, I cringed. I've yet to see a big scale opera, so I don't know much about the protocol...BUT I do know that Raisinettes or anything in a crinkly bag, do not belong in the theater! Hope you are feeling better!
Duuuuuude...computers are overrated. Hey, did you say 'mouse'? (pounce)

I tried that a few times, and the one writer that I got the most was David Foster Wallace. I also got Ernest Hemingway, and...Stephenie Meyer (of Eclipse fame). Go figure! Sorry to hear of the sick, hope Mr. P is feeling better!

Way back in my younger days in Portsmouth, VA, I had a Kentucky long rifle (from a kit) that used black powder. On one or two New Year celebrations I brought it out (with parental permission and supervision) and fired off a few rounds, lots of BOOM! and pyrotechnics, sort of like a giant, hand-held firecracker...but without bullets, powder only. Because firing off bullets at random in an urban setting is just plain stupid. The laws of gravity aren't suspended because its a celebration. Those rounds have to come down somewhere. Hey, maybe this is a good time to consider roofing shingles made out of Kevlar!

You are concerned with months? Sissy. I laugh at these 'months' and call the clock a silly thing...for now...

Happy Anniversary! I do hope you get the quality time with the hubs! (sans donuts). BTW, that you used the phrase 'goat rodeo'? Makes you way cool in my book :)
Maybe his situation is that his marker ran out of ink before he could finish his sign. Beyond that, I'm stumped.

Good on ya, mate, for the shelving! That sounds like my 5-Year Plan for the People's Reorganization of My House. And may I say I'm tickled that someone in the now has posted about THX-1138! So cool I may have to indulge in some Netflix...

I for one had a great time. It very nice to meet you and Phil, and the photo plates were amazing! I have my eye on one of them, will have to see if my wallet will cooperate. Still puzzling over that goth art, though :)
