I'll plan to hurl my pill box at any one that takes another shot at you.

I'll throw my football at everyone. I know how to throw a football.

Ouch. My face is smarting already.

Apr 30th 2008

I think that's what you do when you run into a discussion about pus.

Ugh. I think you're right. I think I just AARP'd.

Apr 30th 2008

So, mtt, somebody at work called me a "geezer" this week. Maybe I qualify as an AARP-type? Old-fart just makes me wince.

Ouch. I'm not in AARP territory but I'm no whippersnapper either. I got carded not too long ago and I asked the door person, "really?" He looked at my ID and we both had a good laugh. Later, he came over to my table to apologize and I refused it and insisted that he accept my personal gratitude instead.

That's very gallant DC, just don't fall and break a hip.

They've both been replaced already. I'm like Steve Austin except $5,999,999 cheaper.

The geezer thing was just bizarre. It was actually a candidate interviewing for a position on my campus that referred to himself as a geezer when answering a question I asked. And then he sort of swept me into the geezer-dom whenever the topic of that question came up again. My colleagues around the table thought it was pretty funny, and have fallen over themselves this week reminding me that I'm now a geezer.

Apr 30th 2008

Hear that, whippersnappers! There's gonna be a changing of the guard here at NA. So shape up! Also, stand up straight! Take your hands out of your pockets! Eat your vegetables! And look at me when I'm talking to you!

Oh, yeah, a "changing of the guard." Until it hit's 8:30 PM and your all asleep. Then we younger folk take control for good!

It's good that you found out early that he's not even functionally employable.

Word.

Careful, mtt is brandishing his cane about, don't you know. And stay off his lawn!

Hate to tell you this, but as you grow older you need less sleep or at least I have. I'm down to about 6 hours a night. Of course I get easily confused....

I've seen Jenna being Jenna on the talk shows. I can honestly say I've never seen or heard Jenna poking out during The Office.

Going back a few pages... I don't think people are saying they saw Jenna in that scene, the point is they saw acting rather than just seeing Pam. And I agree. I saw acting, just like when Phylis was looking for the smell around Karen's desk, and when Michael wanted "his ladies" in the office with him so he could break up with Jan, and Phylis (again) make a really awkward stop.

What??? I can't hear you over the sound of my punk records.

May 1st 2008

Mixed Berries, I gotta say that I'm a little disappointed in you. The passage you quoted included the words Jenna poking out but then your post went in a completely different direction than what I expected.

Sometimes I feel like I'm in this gutter all by myself. Sigh

May 1st 2008

I must be losing my touch. So sorry to disappoint. Here's hoping it doesn't happen again!

That's what the wife of the guy who got a Viagra prescription said.

May 1st 2008

I have two choices. I can go with my intital reaction to Night Out and stay annoyed or I can watch it again to see if I like it better. That locked in storyline hit me the same way FTC did. But, I put Branch Wars in my top 5 because of the awesomness of the rest of the ep. I really loved the clubbing part of the ep and I'd start to zone out whenever they got back to the electric city.

May 1st 2008

AaTT I am also a big fan of Branch Wars minus the FTC which isn't a popular episode with lots of folks. The walkie talkie dialog alone makes it worthwhile. Night Out does improve with further viewings, but not quite enough to redeem the locked in story for me. It's still the least favorite of the three episodes since the end of the strike in my scorecard.

May 1st 2008

Later, he came over to my table to apologize and I refused it and insisted that he accept my personal gratitude instead.

I hope you worded it this way: "Apology not accepted...because it's unnecessary."

Hate to tell you this, but as you grow older you need less sleep or at least I have. I'm down to about 6 hours a night. Of course I get easily confused....

I just read where a leading cause in premature aging after 50 is lack of sleep. So, paradox.

I know Jinx has already TWSS'd this, but here's another: That's what Toby said. Topical, right?

May 1st 2008

Oh, look! My friends are showing their love for me.

Again.

mtt, I hope the age bashing wasn't too much last night. I’m sure the old thing is itself getting old and I’m afraid we ran you out. Since we like to rate things here, I personally rate you as among the coolest NA members and quite possibly the smartest and certainly the nicest to everyone. I think we all operate under the assumption that when you roast someone, you honor them. I can't speak for the whippersnappers, though. Also,

Pam’s boobs.

May 1st 2008

Awww...shucks.

No worries, Madge. I know the young punks...err...that is...my friends all meant it in good fun. I wasn't offended at all. I bailed because I was really tired and because I had a suspicion that today would be hell-day at work.

And I was right.

Anyway, thanks for your very kind words. I do love my NA buds!

May 1st 2008

I got carded not too long ago and I asked the door person, "really?"

My mom got carded at an Oktoberfest thing a few years ago and was so overjoyed she wanted to hug the girl who had carded her.

I bailed because I was really tired

So the whole "as you get older the less sleep you need" theory doesn't apply, huh?

I had a suspicion that today would be hell-day at work. And I was right.

I'll stop being a young punk and shut up. And I'm sorry about your workday.

Can we see the rankings? As The Archivist I will have to make a new thread for the list.

May 3rd 2008 edited

Are you really going to?

May 3rd 2008

If I get the list, or it actually exists...maybe.

May 3rd 2008

No I'm kidding, I would never actually rank us using a whole thread, I'd add it to the posting stats thread instead.

We're having a mini-Office marathon right now. We're playing all the post-strike S4 episodes for my sister/brother in-laws who missed them all. In the cold open of Night Out when Dwight is rubbing peanut butter in Michael's hair, Dwight looks at the PB container and says, "Lot of calories..." and Michael says, "Well then don't leave it on very long" (or something like that). Remember that? That was funny... (call me Chris Farley).

Plural marriage, eh? I hear that's popular these days.

Nice figure.
