|11:43 pm - "There were 87 Advil in the bottle, now there's 30 left. I ate 47 so what happened to the other 10?"|
Before I get goin' here, I'd like to point out that I have a splitting headache.
I dunno why. It's lousy and I've tried a couple of different remedies, which haven't helped. Much as I'd like to take a few handfuls of Ibuprofen, I don't think it's a good idea.
I'm telling you about my headache in order to point out that it was bugging me before I started watching Tripping the Rift. Is this show any good? I'm not sure yet. In theory I like this kind of humor, but I dunno... I saw most of these jokes nine years ago in Space Quests IV, V and 6, and they already screwed up their opportunity to make a Microsoft Bob reference.
Anyway, not a big weekend. offBeat Acappella sang at the farmer's market on morning, and I'd like to thank those of y'all who showed up to listen. We discovered that the best place to perform is in the entryway to a closed bank, right next to the ATM. Passersby tipped us in multiples of $5. I gotta learn to play the accordion.
Oh, speaking of which, I now own an accordion, thanks to laviorli, whose dad was getting rid of his. I'm thrilled (and then some)! She gave it to me at koriandrkitten's birthday party on Saturday night, which was a good time.
I got her a harmonica.
Current Mood: headachey
Current Music: Tripping the Rift
I got a harmonica AND a Accordian... no wait I didn't.
They've got cheap harmonicas at Big Lots. And (not as) cheap toy accordions at Spencer's.
I missed another offBeat? DAMMIT!
Congrats on the accordian. We should start a band.
We should start a band.
What would we call ourselves? My votes are for House of Ponies or The Turnip Murmers, but both of those names are taken by my sister.
Your sister specifically, or your sister's band?
Your sister has a band?
We still don't have a drummer, but I'd totally take an accordian over a guitarist. I'll start learning some early TMBG tunes to get us started.
My sister -- who plays just about everything -- has reserved those names for herself. She doesn't have a band, but (thanks to the connections afforded by her jobs and current boyfriend) she's jammed with pretty much everybody I've ever heard of who is involved with the local music scene. She keeps threatening to introduce me to Screamin' Cyn-Cyn and the Pons
(ask Mary about them), but it hasn't happened yet.
Jeebus. I know next to nothing about her, except that she's your sister, I saw her once at Madrigals the last year my own sister was in it, and that you spend a whole bunch of time with her.
Well, then I guess the only solution is that she has to join our band.
Yeah, my sister's pretty awesome. It's too bad it took me until after I'd moved out of my parents' house to realize that. Guess that's how it works, though.
Counting the number of Advil in a bottle has to be a cure for something.
For the definitive MS Bob reference, see "Reboot." Three awesome seasons of nineties computer animation that still holds up today: all built upon (among other things) a Bob reference.
Would you believe I'd never thought about that until you just pointed it out?
(I assume you're leaving out season four for a reason)
Were there four? I'm not sure I saw season four. Was Enzo grown up by season three?
Kinda. Enzo growing up happened during Season 3. The fourth comprised of two movies (split into four episodes each) -- the thing that wrapped up the super-virus plotline from that season, and then My Two Bobs (I liked the latter much more than the former). It was kind of a crapshoot, because they couldn't get a full season for some reason, and much of the original creative team had left the company by that time, so there were all kinds of inconsistencies and other problems. Depending on the successs of those movies, they would have made one more, plus an episode that was entirely a musical, for a full compliment of 13. Oh well.
I'm sure I have it on tape somewhere.
I'm told I would love Reboot, but I still haven't seen much of it. Gonna have to get on that -- what I did see was pretty fantastic.
Why do you suspiciously change the subject and break my concentration?
Also, I find that for my migraines, a few cups of coffee and a pleasant atmosphere, such as a quiet Denny's help immensely. It's either that or a dark room and two quiet hours of sleep, but hey, one is a social situation possibility(when I invariably get my migraines), the other is decidedly less so. Anyway...um, yeah.
Yeah... A few cups of coffee was NOT what I needed last night, but Denny's would have been good. I should have done that. Bring a book... order some decaf... sit and do nothing for awhile... That would have been a good evening.
Oh, and thank you, by the way, for getting the subject of this post. I'm sure one or two other people did, but they didn't acknowledge it. That makes me sad.
Don't interrupt me as I struggle to complete this thought.
Man, I totally got it.
