    Glowing and bouncing, my friend. It's got a lot of bounce to it....

    Sadly, this was a long long time ago.

    I'm wondering if dandy's feeling attractive today is tied to her admission of a crush on the confessions thread....seems likely to me. Give it up dandy. Did you dress up in boots for your old man crush? I'm seeing a theme to your posts today.

    We have a similar tradition, however i partake in and get some pretty slick ones from pure modern or crate and barrel, this year i get to add to my collection

    Men do dumb $hit... it is what they do to correct the problem that counts.

    I choose not to partake in your tomfoolery.

    Can I please give back Miggy's Triple Crown and MVP in exchange for winning at least one damn game???

    People who have a ML team they can claim by geographic proximity (and that is not the Colorado Rockies) are not allowed to feel bad about things related to that team. Not ever. Please repent!

    I want to know what "doories" are, too! LP what kind of festival do you have to run? Christmas? Fly-fishing? Boot-making? Gingerbread Houses and the People Who Love Them?


    PS, Dan, where did you FIND that and imaplanner you are a wicked, wicked man. Come live with me some day.

    Oh my word that sounds fantastic! Just get you some boots on and DO IT! You're the woman for the job, no paper bag necessary. PS tell Santa I need new couch for Christmas when you see him, OK?

    "Doory" is a term my father coined. He broke me of the habit, and I use the word "broke" aptly.

    In short, a doory is someone who, upon returning a thing to the place it rightfully belongs, merely walks through the door, sets the object upon the nearest available surface, executes a 180º, and departs through the door in which they entered. Most often found near basements, attics, and garages, but can be found almost anywhere.

    I'm going to be spending a good chunk of this winter undoing the work of my doory family. My wife is hopeless, but I may yet have time to save my son and daughter from this horrific fate.

    must be hormones are in the air today. So many distractions....there's a banner add on Cyburbia for Snorg tees that occasionally pops up that's causing me to....well, be distracted.

    I've heard of that. I'm afraid to get an account and try it for fear I will never do anything but post to Cyburbia, make up fake band names, and put up meaningless pictures for people to see. Very afraid. Must not try it.

    I think I'm responsible for the snorg tees ads. I like to look at the funny shirts and I giggle and giggle and giggle. I'm a sad man on the inside, so I giggle a lot on the outside to try to stay in balance.
