I also think anyone who kills another person while intoxicated (driving a car, etc) should be convicted of first-degree murder (and injuries of attempted murder).

Warhawk, I completely agree with you on this.

I believe Purina makes a "hairball control" type of cat food...vet also has a sort of paste in a tube you can give them (forget the name)...

Hee. If you knew all of the hairball control methods we have attempted, you'd think we were crazy cat people. Basically, our eldest is impervious to all attempts to control her ack-ack-acking.

I wonder if subconsciously they think that someone with a sense of humor is really just someone who is least likely to be mean/cruel toward them.

I politely disagree. However, I try to keep the level of "schmoopiness" down on this board.

I just feel the episode really missed the mark. Characters were just shoved in willy-nilly, versus really showing how messed up Apollo was by having him interacting with established characters we give a darn about.

According to the podcast, Moore felt this episode was off as well.

Exactly whose character was being developed? The two never-before-heard-of-girlfriends of Apollo? The stereotypical black pimp? Fisk who was written rather sympathetically for a while, then given a one-note send-off?

Oh, you mean Apollo? OOooooooh. He's conflicted. We sure haven't seen that before.

As far as Clerks goes, I think that maybe one of the things that hurts it now is that it's hyped as a great "regular" film and not as the cheaply made independent film that it is. If I were to have seen it knowing only that it was a first time indy effort by some unknown director I think I would have been a lot more impressed than I was - and I still did like it.

That's exactly it. It was the first flick by Kevin Smith, made for something like $27,000. It was about the promise that he showed as a writer and director. It wasn't the "OMG BEST MOVIE EVER"; it was an interesting first step.

For example, if you loved Sin City, you probably think that Robert Rodriguez is an amazing director. However, if you were to go back and look at his first flick El Mariachi, you'd wonder what in the world people ever saw in that POS. (It's good - it's just made very cheaply...When he got more acclaim, he remade it as Desperado with Salma Hayek and Antonio Banderas.

As for Kevin Smith -- shrug. I enjoyed Dogma, didn't care much for "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" and I'm honestly unsure if I've seen any of his other movies (maybe Chasing Amy... I don't recall). He's popular because his movies are dialogue oriented, and it's generally pretty witty dialogue. Kinda like Quentin Tarrantino, but with substitute Tarrantino's violence for Smith's crude language and sexual references.

We're going to have to fix that pronto. I generally adore Kevin Smith's flicks. When I was teaching at UF, I showed Clerks to my students as an example of narrative form. Jay and Silent Bob was the weakest flick he's done so far.

Of course, I do question him naming his daughter Harley Quinn after a Batman villain. That's a bit too fanboyish.

Personal Bests:
Car: 1985 Nissan 300ZX - In 1990, I did about 130 mph on the 7 mile bridge near Marathon, Florida.

Damn, I was stupid. I was 17, which is synonymous with stupid.

Pssh. If the wife is the main shopper, there is no shame in smelling like something pleasant. It's much more likely to score the Sexxor for the hubby than "Eau de foot funk."

PE is the stuff you can get without having to beg the pharmacist. Regular Sudafed can be used in the production of crystal meth, so it has been decided that this shouldn't be readily available to everyone. Instead, you have to ask someone to get it for you from behind the counter.

Yay. I really love having to waste the time of a trained medical professional in order to get my little red pills o'goodness. (As my midwife says, "Sure, you don't have to take it while pregnant. However, we think the risk of mommy not breathing is greater than the minute affect it has on the fetus."

If only we can afford it. You have any idea of what such a thing may cost? The thing is, that it's only now that it's starting to be possible, since our youngest have been breastfeeding exclusively up until just this last week. And I know she's dying for a massage.

Oh, my goodness. Your wife must be so "touched out" with being the constant food source. I'm glad she'll have the opportunity to get out for a few hours away. She probably doesn't even realize how much she needs it!

That Valentines Day dinner?
Studies show that they give you smaller portions, increase the price cause they give you a "special V day meal", try to turn your table quicker, and have less than standard service = $100.00+

That's why you take your special one out for a dinner a day or two before the 14th. We usually hit our favorite steak restaurant, feast, and then go to a movie. The dinner (we split a 16 oz NY Strip normally) ends up being about $40 with tip. Movie with drinks, etc. is $20.

Don't go to Chez Chichi for dinner. It's just not worth it.

You'd be surprised. You could get her a manicure-pedicure for $30 or so at a local strip-mall sort of place. (It's a nice little hour away from the kids.)

Facial or massage in the $60 range is good. That gives her a chance to see if she likes the place.

You could also do a bit of googling for "spas" in your neck of the woods and do some price comparison. Your local newspaper will be chock full of ads offering Valentine's Day specials.

Trust me, this is the gift that will give back to you!

Here's my suggestion - Get her a gift certificate to a local spa for a massage. Tell her that when you return, you'll watch the kids for a weekend afternoon while she goes out and gets spoiled.

Dude... he's going to miss Valentine's day and so you think that he'll get to spend less money?

Yes. I have this down to a science. When he gets back, all the left over candies, flowers, sweet cards, ect ect will be on discount! So ultimately he can spend half the money and get twice the stuff.

Nuh-uh. You gotta do it before you leave. Put a card or gift in a special hiding place. You can't just skip it and pick something up afterwards.

You. Just. Don't. If'n. You. Want. Sexx0r. Again.

Argh, I'm leaving for South Africa tomorrow morning and won't return until 16th February, meaning I'll miss out on at least four episodes of BSG. And I'll miss out on the kids' progress. But I guess it'll be fun - one week conference in Sun City, a couple of weeks collecting insects and then another week down at the museum in Cape Town.

Wait - you're missing Valentine's Day, and you're leaving the wife at home alone with 2 children? You better have an awfully shiny gift or two for the wife for a late Valentine's Day gift...

Just saying. I like you, and I'd like you to live beyond the month.

Sounds like you need a Tivo or MythTv box. I love watching football with a 30 second skip button on my MythTv box. Hit it once between plays, and it puts you right to the next play (unless they are running a hurry-up offense) I usually start watching games 2 hours after they start, and I end at the same time as live tv. This way, I watch football games in about an hour.

We do have a Tivo. Z is actually a TiVo evangelist, I swear.

The problem is that our toddler now knows that if she starts talking when the game/show is on, we can pause, let her babble, shuts up, then starts talking again the second the TV comes back on. So we have very limited viewing hours (after she's asleep) to watch TV.

Therefore, we prioritize. Big games (like when my beloved Florida Gators are whooping up on the Bulldogs) are watched. Otherwise, no interest in devoting the hours to football.

I'm a few months younger than Z, and I've had more cars...

1974 VW Superbeetle - (Purchased with my own money, but wrecked a month after I turned 16)
1989 Honda motor scooter (I was living in Key West - this is a totally viable mode of transport)
1985 Jeep Cherokee/1985 Nissan 300 ZX - both of these belonged to my folks, but I drove them regularly
1987 Suzuki Samarai - parents made me trade this in for the next, which they owned, but were bored of
1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme - crappy car, constantly broke down
(Cars purchased with my own money)
1995 Toyota Corolla - reliable yet boring
1998 Saturn SC2 - fun, but I wanted something bigger
2000 Nissan Xterra - OMG too big!
2002 Toyota Camry - just about right
