Out of the Blue

Well, since our progresss on getting the Gunnar man to stop marking his territory in the kitchen has been sporadic (at best), I've come up with a temporary workaround to try and stem the flood, so to speak, for the time being. As I mentioned, crating him as a puppy proved nearly impossible, as his will-power to resist this proved inexhaustible, however, he is perfectly content to hang out with me up in my office with the door shut so I can keep tabs on him. He's been on his best behavior, and seems to enjoy the extra attention, not caring that he and I are now both basically crated together. I guess it's a variation on misery loving company.

Uh, yeah. Exactly in what way is it self-sufficient?

Yeh, when I first read the title I'm was thinking:

Cool, I guess they made an actual island with foliage and (somehow) a fresh water source.

Nope: it's a slightly round yacht without an engine.


While we're at it; I have space capsule for sale. It greatly resembles an old Buick... but it's still a mostly metal capsule that can withstand space. It just can't support YOU, you re-entry.

OMG I just busted out laughing so the guy I work next to came over and he started laughing. Then we had half the service department laughing after he sent them the link.

Can you tell we are not that busy today?

Or in other words...

A glorified Barge... with yacht furnishings.

Ummm, no thanks.

Yes, this is why the first time I signed up for Netflix I went through 150 dvds in 12 months.

Funny, but I disagree that sitting next to the elderly is like 1st class seating.

From my experience an elderly couple is often talking. I don't mean "elderly" as like 60 as some kids think, but like 70/80 and up.

Usually it's one spouse explaining what just happened because the other spouse doesn't "get it" or can't hear or can't see or whatever.

I related a very similar experience in the email I sent to Blue. Specifically, they kept talking, and then at one point one of them goes to use the bathroom, apparently got lost, and had to be escorted back into the theater by an employee, followed by a game of "where is our group sitting at?"...

Why am I not surprised to click on that Strange Fan Art thing and immediately see a bunch of Mass Effect stuff? I'm a big fan of the series but I've never understood peoples fascinations with creating weird little space romance pictures with Garrus or whatever. It's frankly a bit disturbing, the forums at Bioware are filled with attaboys whenever people post that kind of stuff too which is just bizarre.

Granted, it's usually quieter than some kids yelling THEIR stuff... but hardly silent. And in a twisty film like "Inception" it's REALLY annoying to hear one spouse have to explain every single bit in every single scene.

Seriously... Inception was just an annoying experience due to that fact alone. But even still, it was less annoying than "Woman who brings in baby to see 10PM horror movie" or "loud teens saying stupid stuff"

The rest of the diagram... I can agree with. Including the "Toilet of Shame"

Indeed. I hope you don't think I'm not aware of the score.

I think that's why it's working...
