      Wassup E? Any way one or some of us can chase that Evil Bad Mood away?

      • Evil Grin

        Just a "rudeness of people" bad mood. I seem to have been besieged by thoughtless folks the last few days. It has made a dark cloud appear above me and spit thunder and lightning.

        Picture yourself providing this:

        Oh c'mon. It can't be that bad. Besides, if you take a minute to just picture yourself mooning the worst of your rude people today, I'll bet you spark up a bit.

    I just started watching that towards the end of last season, so I still have lots to learn about the characters. On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the GREATEST show you've ever seen, how would you rate Psyche, Dear Lady?

    May 17, 2011 at 2:53 pm |
    • Chicago Lady@AleeD

      Probably a 9. I like the humor so much I'm reading the 4th novel based on the characters. One of the best lines was, "Are you a Medium?"
      Shawn replies, "I used to be but then I ate too much."

      May 17, 2011 at 3:12 pm |

        I'll have to think up another clever moniker for the future spawn. Although I swear, if I have twins they're getting Thing 1 Thing 2 onesies.

        Hubs said that the Disney Store sells Thing 1 and Thing 2 t-shirts. We're thinking about getting some for the boys.

      • AleeD@Tazer & EGrin

        Evil's comment of "little Tazers" brought to mind to a couple of moniker choices for future micro-Tazers:

        Mace if it's a boy.
        Pepper if it's a girl ("Spray" could be her middle name)

    Could someone please explain what KUTGW stands for. I saw it on the horsie thread.

    May 17, 2011 at 2:10 pm |
    • Queen of Everything @ CL

      Keep up the good work? Any clue what PWNED stands for?

      May 17, 2011 at 2:12 pm |
      • Tazer@QoE

        It's gamer-speak. Basically is "owned" spelled incorrectly.

        May 17, 2011 at 2:14 pm |
    • AleeD@QOE & JBJ

      QOE is correct about KUTGW.

      However, I too would like to have a clearer understanding of how "OWNED" became "PWNED" in, I think, the virtual world.

      May 17, 2011 at 2:16 pm |
      • Tazer@Alee

        I believe that it's because the "o" is by the "p" on a QWERTY keyboard, and in computer games while typing to someone else it would be easy to misspell if in a hurry? I've heard this somewhere and don't remember where it was...

        May 17, 2011 at 2:18 pm |
      • Evil Grin

        Same way the became teh, I suppose. When you're typing fast between shots while gaming, you don't stop to spell check. And when that becomes a common mistake, it becomes part of the gamers' lexicon. And then spreads to the rest of the online world.

        May 17, 2011 at 2:21 pm |
      • AleeD, TV Slut@Taze, Sir Bid & EG

        That clears it up quite a bit for me. Thank you.

    Interesting sidebar story about what shows are not coming back next season. Thank God that "Outsourced" was axed. Given the current economic environment, whoever thought up the idea of a comedy about moving a call center to India should have been sumarily shot.

    May 17, 2011 at 2:09 pm |
    • Evil Grin

      I always thought that was weird. But I guess they thought another Office-style comedy would trump any concerns over economy and such.

      May 17, 2011 at 2:14 pm |
    • AleeD@Truth & EG

      When the premise of that show came up, I was also completely turned off. Never got into "The Office" much either tho'.

      Now I'm looking forward to the Summer season to start up in a couple of weeks.

        In no particular order

        The Closer
        Fairly Legal
        Burn Notice
        Covert Affairs
        Royal Pains
        Rizzoli & Isles

        Rescue Me is wrapping up this summer but I'm jacked that The Walking Dead got picked up for another season – have to wait until late fall for that one though.

        [I do like the alliteration better]

        Thanks for the list. The ending "Lie to Me" was sad news. Tim Roth is a fun actor to watch. Most of the rest of them don't hurt me to see them go.

      That's not so much an "ew" as an "OW!" Does it hurt as much as it looks like it does?

      I'm glad it's healing well, tho'.

      May 17, 2011 at 1:55 pm |
    • Tazer@Alee

      Really it doesn't. I have a surgical cast on, that was when they were changing the dressings and removing the staples last week. It took 6 days to get off the percocet, and after that, almost no pain. But... those dang staples coming out hurt way worse than anything I've dealt with from this surgery so far.

      May 17, 2011 at 2:03 pm |
    • Mare@Tazer

      OMG – Inside or out side of foot (Sorry – it's too puffy to tell). If it's the inside, you and I could be twins – complete with the Achilles scar. Mine is about that long as well.

      May 17, 2011 at 2:27 pm |
    • Tazer@Mare

      Outside for me, I think yours was the inside? I had both my peroneal tendons done, and the achilles. Fun times! Your page helped me be prepared for what it'd look like, thanks!

      May 17, 2011 at 2:30 pm |
      • Tazer@Mare

        Duh, learn how to read, Taz (facepalm)

        May 17, 2011 at 2:31 pm |
      • Mare@Tazer

        I thought you said yours was out side. To tell you the truth, you won't even see it in a few months – not unless you stand by a mirror. For me at least, the outside healed much better – scar wise – than the inside did.

        Just remember to take extra calcium and vit. D to help those screws settle in place well – and not move on you :)

        May 17, 2011 at 2:43 pm |
      • Tazer@Mare

        I don't even care if there's a scar, I just want my inside bits to work right :)

        That would suck if they moved or the plate detached. Ow?

        May 17, 2011 at 2:44 pm |
      • Mare@Tazer

        Trust me – when the hardware moves, it does hurt. I had a subtalar implant shift on me, and they had to remove it. This last surgery, I've had no problems with the hardware moving, but then again it's two 4" screws going through the heel, and not a little bullet like thing.

        May 17, 2011 at 3:01 pm |
      • Tazer@Mare

        I'm so glad I didn't have to get the heel screws! Just the pair in the first metatarsal and a plate to cover the osteotomy. :)

        May 17, 2011 at 3:08 pm |
      • Mare@Tazer

        Your surgery actually sounds more painful than mine. I just had the subtalar joint scrapped and cleaned out, and fused together – hence the heel screws.

        May 17, 2011 at 3:22 pm |
      • Tazer@Mare

        That doesn't sound too bad, I guess! I was surprised to hear that both of my tendons were shredded, though... nothing on the MRI or ultrasound showed damage on that one, but for some reason no one spotted the damage. But I got my wish times two! Double cadaver tendons. I've heard the grafts work better than just repairing the existing damage alone, so I'm glad I got them and I hope they work as well as I heard.

        May 17, 2011 at 3:25 pm |
      • Mare@Tazer

        I'd have to agree with that statement. The 1st surgery I had was to shorten the subtalar tendon, and this was done by grafting it onto another tendon, then looping it around and reattaching it to the bone – it failed, and ended up "bunched" up at the bottom of my foot. This too didn't show up on MRI or X-Ray. I'm glad it wasn't cut though, because the next surgery I had to repair the tendon they did cut it, and there was more than enough to use to lengthen my Achilles. Even though it was shredded, it wasn't torn "across the grain" so they were able to salvage it.

        They did have donor tendon waiting for me though – just in case I needed it.

        May 17, 2011 at 3:36 pm |
      • Tazer@Mare

        That's good yours was salvaged. All that crap you had to go through just sounds horrific! Mine was torn "up" the tendon and they were all stretched out.

    Morning all, beautiful day in MT.

    I was talking to my six horses this morning, they said eat the puppies first.

      So your horses have canines? [Love dbl entendres!!]

      Butt-seriously folks, don't all the animals we've been commenting on have canines? I thought the canines were teeth in a given position in the mouth. Are they called canines in horses, too?

      May 17, 2011 at 12:27 pm |
      • MT Miner, Horse Whisperer

        They are known locally as "wolf teeth", most of us have them pulled early in the foals life. Not really of any value. very similar to elk having "ivories", which at one point in history were actually tusks, looked like a walrus or saber toothed tiger. All part of evolution........ Some on the other post need to evolve into reality.

        I was taking full advantage of the nice weather last week. Took off from work for 3 days to do yard work, and get sunburned. :)

        How are things in your neck of the woods?

        May 17, 2011 at 12:29 pm |
      • Jerv@Mare

        Oh, glad you took advantage of the nice weather. We have some nasty storms moving in today and for the next couple as well. Since we are actually enjoying a spring this year, I'm not complaining. What did you plant, a garden?

        May 17, 2011 at 12:44 pm |
      • Mare@Jerv

        It's been a really miserable spring here in WNY – either rain and cold, or sunny and hot. No happy medium.

        No, didn't plant anything. I was helping hubby dig up the old lawn, level it out, and reseed. Not to mention landscape. We had 22 tons of stone delivered that we put down last week. We have 2 Deutz-Allis garden tractors, and a "Johnny Bucket" that made fast work of everything. (We have about 3 acres that we are currently working on fixing up)

        May 17, 2011 at 12:54 pm |

      That one is going to hurt...Perhaps we should leave out a collection jar here in the lounge.

      I have a related story of tax weirdness, this one at the state level. Because I bought a hybrid car last year, I got a tax credit from the state of Colorado equal to 10% of the purchase price. After I filed, I got a bill from the state saying that I took a credit of $288 too much, and they wanted taht back. I mailed them a check in February and thought it was done. Lo and behold, this weekend, they mailed me a refund of the same $288. Sheesh guys, make up your minds already.

    Good morning chums. I see the fervent... ferver on the horse thread hasn't calmed.

    Hey, could you pass me one of those bagels, and some equine jerky? Thanks much.

    Man, Orson Wells had to be smashed. Or maybe he had a traumatic brain injury? Because you'd think after all those radio years, and movie years, he'd know how to deliver the line, "Ahh, French Champagne." He scared the pee out of people with War of the Worlds, but he couldn't convince anyone he knew what champagne was? Sad.

      • AleeD Dominatrixing the Thread Again@Jerv

        I'm not sure I'd trust anything from a post that is that volatile. Anyone could claim they're trying to make a point by posting a macabre video from some obscure horror flick and claim that, in this case, "horses are really treated this way."

        I don't need images like that, true or otherwise, in my cabesa. ;)

        May 17, 2011 at 10:41 am |

        No I did not for the precise reason you posted. I would rather talk or correspond with someone that is level headed and can present reliable research and info. I tried to get some of "them" to produce said info but only got ad hominen attacks that Truth pointed out that they are so well known for. Anyway...back to work here.

      • JainaJade@Jerv

        I had orginally tried to get them to stay downstairs since I knew a storm was coming and the little one likes being in her safety spot. However the big one wanted none of that since the rule is when one parent is away dogs gets to stay in the bed. I had expected the little one to do something like that but 25lbs of short hair puppy is totally different than 50lbs of fluffy puppy. Still not sure why she freaked, normally during storms she just chills...

      Now that's a great score, I have to say. How long did it take for you Buzzy pot to start to grow?

        the Oregano and Thyme are starting to peek out of the soil, the lavender is still hiding.

        Are you watering daily? How much H2O?

        oops, sorry, forgot to change the name. We were stirring the pot yesterday on the horse thread.

        Ahhh, evil klatchers to be feeding the trolls. ;)

        I'm watering a little bit each day... this is a longer than wide metal tub/pot with no drainage so I don't want to over-water it.

      Morning AD (passing over to RicH.) Was that you that posted as "MalaDee?" I split my side laughing!

        Thanks for the coffee and the Herbal Essence...Hope my papers don't get wet.

        RH, welks for the greenery. Always willing to share a good thing.

        Jerv, yep, I'm MalaDee (among other names). A while back, I asked the Klatsch what would be an appropriate "evil" name for me for posting less-than-savory comments. I think it was either Truth or Evil Grin who came up with "MalaDee" as a play on my usual screen name. I'm happy that you find humor in my not-so-nice side. ;))

        Just put the coffee on. Nothin' fancy, just some Folgers. It's gonna be a good day, my friend, even with all the rain. You and WD making a run this morning??

        May 17, 2011 at 7:53 am |
      • RichardHead@Jerv

        Yes Sir, Just pulled into Mobile AL. and parked on the front row!! With all this flooding it will give a new meaning to the term Roll Tide. Gotta do my mandatory "Break" for awhile and WD needs to water the plants.Thanks for the coffee.

        May 17, 2011 at 7:57 am |
      • Jerv@RicH

        Yeah ain't that right. Seems to be raining and flooding all over the darn country. So what are the regs now, is it 8 or 11 hours on and then you have to pull over?

        May 17, 2011 at 8:01 am |
      • RichardHead@Jerv

        It's all screwed up...Drive for 10 and have to take 8 unless you do this or that. I run 2 books with WD as my second driver just in case.

        May 17, 2011 at 8:05 am |
      • Jerv@RicH

        Sounds completely jacked up now. My pops did the same thing with his books. Gotta do what ya gotta do to make a living.
