Has everybody applied to Butt-Numb-A-Thon 8 (or Octobutt-Numb-A-Thon, as the kids are calling it). I have. I just finished my application, and have entrusted it to the care of matt_william, as the organizers of 8BNAT have requested that groups apply together. Hopefully Matt will submit my app along with his rather than deleting it or stealing answers from it. I especially hope he doesn't steal answers from it, because some of my answers are pretty lame (Question 16: "What prop from any film would you like to possess?" Answer 16: "That one guy's finger from that one movie where the one guy loses a bet to the other guy gets his finger chopped off.").

Anyway, little of interest to report... It's been a lot of the same old same old around here. The closest thing I have to an interesting tidbit is that there's an enormous TV on the curb outside. It's the biggest television I've ever seen outside of a showroom or academic setting, and it's been moving from house to house for nearly a week. Apparently the allure of a big TV is so great that it hasn't occurred to anyone that a TV that large sitting on the curb probably has a few problems. It stopped moving a couple of days ago when it rained and somebody kicked in the screen. It's a flat panel, so the screen looks more curved now than broken, but I'm sure close examination would reveal hundreds of very fine cracks.

Isn't the movie suggested above 'Four Rooms'?

Six points for Holly!

Yeah, that's the movie I was referencing, although that's not the actual answer I gave to that question. And according to Four Rooms, the whole finger-bet thing happens in an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents. In Four Rooms they mistakenly say the episode is called "The Man from Rio," but the real title is "The Man from the South." That's six points for me.

Holey moley you should see the size of the TV Tick got for free. It's so big he can't even watch it in the same room it's in. As far as I know none of the previous owners were named Frank.

As much as I'd love to go to the BNA-Thon I really shouldn't. I don't even know if I can use my 2.5 vacation days allotted to me so far. But I will probably be there for B-Fest. Whatever it costs will still be less than airfair to Texas.

Yeah? How wide is Robert DeNiro's mole on Tick's TV?

I have no expectation of actually being accepted to 8BNAT, but it never hurts to send in a hopeful application. If I do get accepted, I'll have to do some quick, creative accounting to scare up the airfare.

I'd donate $5 to the cause if you get in.
Garmonbozia for the soul.
