Okay, so I was going to write a mass comment on my 100-4-100 post, but I couldn't do it. It was going to be too much for that little box, so I figured I'd just make an entry out of the response.
Easier for you to read.
Easier for me to write.
Win / Win.
Wilwarin – Yes. In the who do I want to meet section, I declined the opportunity to meet you. In my mind, the question was like, fly/drive to where they live, hang out for the day, and then fly/drive home. That's a lot of flight time if I don't even have time to have a good koala stew. And you are correct, I have never been south of the equator but someday do hope to make. And when I do, I'll come a knock'n, okay?
Poobomber – Last time I was there, we had some Greek food at the Pembina Village Restaurant, staying at the Quality Inn right round there. Yeah, that's freakin' yo shite now, isn't it? And I don't know if you've ever noticed on my sidebar, the pictures in "Oh the places you'll go…" there should be one that looks a little familiar. I plan on a feature explaining where all those are, someday.
And I take the "long lost twin brother" as the compliment it was intended.
17. I got the plant from my grand father's funeral in the late 80's, just when I had moved out on my own. The thing simply won't die. About 10 years ago, I thought I was going to be a "plant guy" so I bought a Norfolk Island Pine, and some mini orange bush thing. They were dead in 3 weeks. I swear I heard my mocking laughter and saw a little "Cabbage Patch" (WARNING: This is NOT SAFE FOR WORK) dancing from my plant as I hauled their remains to the trash. Maybe it killed them while I wasn't looking.
21. I shouldn't get too much credit for the not GAYDAR thing. It's not that I'm so enlightened, I just can't muster the energy to CARE about a stranger's sex life. (Incorporating say, Emily Deschanel into a fantasy or two is a different story.)
29. Yes, 7 different women, smarty-pants. :-) (Now I'm think of your pants…)
35. Now I'm thinking about something else! (o)(o)!!!
49. You visited when you could get a lot closer to the rocks than you can today. I enjoyed it, but the wind was blowing through the pasture.
92. "Shopping companion" – Aide. If you need a blocker to clear a path, if I need to "Find this is blue" I will, I will sit in the "idiot chair" holding the purse (and I won't hold it like it was a dead ferret, either) if need be. I am there for you, helping you satisfy your needs, so that maybe later…
Candy - Pere Lechaise Cemetary, Paris – Jim Morrison's grave saddened and depressed me due to the same crap you mentioned. I just used him as a touchstone for people. Moliere, Edith Piaf, Oscar Wilde. We had half a day left in Paris before catching a train, and it was a wonderful, peaceful experience. However, just because I agree with you does not mean that you are not crazy. Ask my friends.
I clearly stated that the CHOICE of meeting you would be expected from a guy, not that the actual meeting would be. Clearly. But in real life, I'd probably hit it off better with Candace. ;-)
Sass – I have a VERY close family (does anybody else hear banjos?) so you and Poobomber are good.
As I understand it, your train delay was due to freight traffic in the evening, and is fairly common. Same thing happened to me riding out of Kewanee after Hog Days.
Ms. Florida Transplant – Thank you very much. It wasn't funny to the poor sap behind me, but sometimes things can't be helped.
The PT Cruiser is a versatile hatchback with plenty of head room and seats that my parents can ride in. Plus, they were new and a little quirky, which I liked. And I must say, a 46" Samsung TV fits perfectly in the back, box and all.
Gwen – No, thank you for getting me out here. It has really been fun. And I am looking forward to seeing you soon, too.
Srg – The escalator was narrow as hell, with no room to pass (well, there was room to pass gas) <-- That's my foot sitting crossways on it.
Some Guy – Thanks. And it was good meeting you as part of this.
Cowguy - I think Richard Simmons would at least sit through the fight at the side of the lake when Dalton rips that dudes throat out.
Dr Zibbs – That's just Mel the Sasquatch after my Kokanee. And thanks for not being grumpy that I'd prefer not to meet you. It a respect thing, honest.
iNDefatigable mjenks – Take the South Shore or the Indiana Tollroad. Either way gets ya here.
H – I'm looking forward to meeting/meating you, too. ;-)
Ellie Mae – The coat and the hat are in the guest room closet. The plaid Mac scarf I wore today.
Giggle Pixie – Thanks. Maybe you could hitch with the iNDdefatigable mjenks?
SkylersDad – Oh, I have no doubt that if you set your mind to it, you could do it. I started before Christmas. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun.
Lisa – Who said we had to get "rich" to run off to Rome together? And I seriously thought I'd get more comments on "In Bruges". Man I loved that movie. To the point where I don't want to see it again, incase I don't love it as much the second time, and then it will feel, tarnished.
Candy & Cora – Thanks for the thought. I'll be setting my Blackberry on vibrate now…
mike – That's my cheap pimpin' goal, to get people to comment. I would say that the "Born In The USA" was a Super Bowl joke, but it's been in the list for a month.
Cabinet doors – Once, when he was passing through my area, after we were roommate, T-Bone knew where I hid the spare key, so he came in and opened EVERY SINGLE CABINET AND DRAWER AND DOOR IN THE WHOLE APARTMENT! I walk in and panic thinking I'd been robbed. But since the TV and the VCR were still there, I quickly knew what was going on. Roommate revenge. A dish best served cold.
Road House – Who doesn't love it? Damn communists who never got over their Red Dawn ass whooping, that's who.
I cannot take credit for inventing writing it as "B(0)(0)Bs" but I will try to write it that way the rest of my life.
Altadel – I wore it AS my gown, what are you talking about? Gifted kids? Good form of birth control. And there is no town name lie like Good Water, Saskatchewan!
