Oh man! Talk about the newsman becoming a wimpy nerd!
*bristles* BECOMING?? Er...uh...I mean...ahem.
I'll just go polish my glasses...
LOL! Sorry about that!
Anyways, A friend of mine who I work with told me that someone at one of the local bars in town said that they know of a person who comes to this bar called "Phoenix", and this person plays pinball games for 2 hours STRAIGHT each time they're there! Talk about strange!
tutter_fan, that's nothing. I've seen marathon pinball and arcade game sessions where the player was so good they just kept getting extra pinballs, lives, etc and went four or five hours on one quarter...ah, the days before Atari!
Man, I love pinball. It makes me sad there are no arcades around. I really could spend hours playing. Depending on what machine it is, I can usually make a high score, unfortunately I never quite figured out the correct way to enter your initials
I like pinball. We used to have a pinball game on the computer that we would play all the time as kids. But I like finding fun pinball machines when I see them. My favorite is the Lord of the Rings themed one.
For those of you who have not played Scribblish, it's a bit like telophone, but where one person writes a statement, the next person draws an illustration of that statement, and the next person writes a sentence about the illustration (all without seeing the origginal statement) and so on down the line. Well, I was playing it tonight with my friends, and some absolute comedic genius in the group put down the phrase "Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden." (Any of you who know the story knows the hilarity of this prompt straight away). I don't know what was funnier, everyone desperately trying to keep the pictures as PG-rated as possible, or my friend 'A's' reaction to the prompt. The end result (complete with lots of stick people and censored bars) made me laugh so hard I almost peed in my pants.
I just watched Little Red Riding Hood from Live at Hollywood Bowl. I nearly died laughing! Just for fun, here it is:
And I thought the fact that Fred and Annoying Orange were getting their own TV shows were bad enough!
The fact that it's like Mr. T is always making a random comeback when you least expect it.
I PITY da fool that thinks the T is done bein' T!
Found a quote again finally that had me howling...and which ties in nicely with the new story I've been working on. Witty writing is always a delight to see on network TV...
I laughed today at reruns of Fresh Prince. God, I miss that show.
You'll think this is cute & funny at the same time: Yesterday, I was at the Humane Society, socializing with the cats, and I met this cute kitten (don't remember how old it was), and it was purring up a storm. I started petting it, and it gave me a bunch of sweet kisses, and started talking like there was no tomorrow! Very cute kitten. (my friends & family have told me that I'm the "cat whisperer", and I believe them 100%!)
Awwwww. Isn't that sweet?
Cats can be so silly sometimes. My black cat (who died last month) was one of the most fun loving, caring creatures I ever had. He was the only one that I've ever had that gave out hugs by jumping on his hind legs, and putting his front paws on my stomach. He had a cute voice he used when he was happy, and he did a LOT of things to grab my attention. I loved in when he'd run up to me, and if my hand was on the floor, he'd shove his face onto it to make me pet him.
Anyways, one thing that made me laugh today was the fact that my orange/white cat named "Cheiko" or "Chico" (whichever you prefer) loves to wake me up in the middle of the night when he's down here in the basement with me, and he's just like his little brother. He shoves his face against my fingers, and purrs loudly. He's about 16 years old, and is a really nice cat. I think it's hilarious when my cat (and cats I've never met who like me) try to grab my attention in the most hilarious ways.
Was reminded of some of my fave Conchords bits a moment ago, and went and replayed this one -- hilarious! Warning: one bit of language -- and lots of mock-language. And mock-low-riding.
Watching "The Longest Blooper Reel in Muppet History (We Think)"
Is that on the DVD or just Blu Ray? I'm so disappointed that the DVD hardly has any special features.
It's on the DVD.
My four year old brother and I were singing "Mahna Mahna" together earlier today. I did the "mahna mahnas" and he did the "doo doo doo doo doos." He was so cute, and I laughed quite a bit.
