Good Sunday morning, Pholks!

Well, at 3:15 pm Eastern Standard time, the BIG hockey game begins -- the gold medal match-up to beat em' all, Canada vs USA... . ....:):).. . . . .tickets for two at GM Place are going for $1600.00, and on-line sellers are asking upwards of $10,000.00 a ticket. :blink: What kind of madness is DIS??

In the "small world" dept--we just had an old friend/colleague of Mark's who happens to be in town over for dinner. He lives in Seattle and his wife is doing a bike marathon tomorrow in the same town where Jess lives.

Crap, Pattteigh, I thought you were going to say that he has been in my ho'tub!

.....:unsure: .. .....Um.. . . .did you think to ASK him if he's been in my ho'tub?.. .. . .......

I sometimes make up a batch of quinoa (I don't bother rinsing it at all - -too lazy), and keep it in the fridge for heating up in the morning as a hot cereal. Both my kids love it as a porridge, with milk and a bit of honey or brown sugar. It sort of has a nutty taste.. . . . . . yum.

Oscar the Grouch! Actually, you are about the UN-grouchiest character around. . . . . ... ;)

#487741 What's With The Statue?

Posted by on 26 November 2008 - 12:42 PM

Hey, readers who are not involved in the silly thread, COME JOIN US! :)

Mygawd....this isn't even the TME thread, and people are still scurrying away!

:lol: :lol:

All right, everyone.
The trials and tribulations of a chronic illness like celiac disease are exhausting and very unfunny. I think this is why the Tickle me Elbow thread is so special, and has become a favorite spot for many of us to come and laugh. Honestly, we can be spitting out food or drink upon reading some posts.....things get that hilarious. I mean, isn't the new folklore icon of Sam Hill Manhead and his rise to cult status worth investigating? 'Tis funny!!!

AND, Best of ALL:

You can learn how to make these!!

I tell you . .. . . What fun!!!!!!!

Patti, yes!!! And the raucous, fascinating story of who the original Sam Hill may have been - - who the man was that inspired such a wonderful, handy expression....."where in Sam Hill is that wife o' mine?" - - is yet another tale for all to read, in the last thirty pages or so of TME.

The funniest part of this story is that not a single person in the TME thread thought it was remotely unusual that Emily's husband goes through trash receptacles.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

OMG....'Tis true. . .. ....

Actually, Sam Hill was placed in the garbage area, in full view.

Another bit of significant information?

#487669 What's With The Statue?

Posted by on 26 November 2008 - 09:33 AM

Well . . .. . . . . .....
The story is long and meandering .. . . where to begin?

My husband was down in the underground parking garage at his office a few weeks ago, and as he was walking by the large garbage receptacle, he saw this....bust. A male head, in profile, with frontal-view shoulders and chest, in much the same position that ancient Egyptians used to portray their painted figures.

He brought it home. The mystery began.
Where did he come from?
What was he used for? A piece of art? A display?
Why was he thrown out?
And perhaps most intriguing.... . .. . by whom??

I began to take it on as a mission, to find out the story of Sam Hill Manhead (now, his acquired name is another entire story - - one can go back about thirty pages on the Tickle Me Elbow thread and follow it through).

There are seven businesses occupying this building:

Two law firms
A homosexual dating service
The Embassy of Burundi
A modelling agency
The Workplace Safety and Insurance Board of Canada
A denturist

With one of these businesses as a potential owner and user of our Manhead, we really began to wonder... .. . ...

What/Who is this mysterious
character? What use could he be to a lawyer? A Burundian refugee? A homosexual? A civil servant?
We still ponder this question.

We talked about how he could be used by someone living alone who wants outsiders to believe that there is a large man living there, too - - he could be placed near a window, and moved about throughout the day.. . . .. .a fine safety tool. He could be placed in the passenger side of one's car, and the carpool lane would suddenly be an option. He's the seat-holder when you leave the movie theatre to go to the washroom. Quite interesting possibilities... . . ... . ..

The Sam Hill Manhead story is full of clandestine details - - it is a love story, a chilling mystery, a great, epic international crime story. And it should be read by all - - on the Tickle Me Elbow thread. All of the details cannot be recounted here, as my post is already long enough!

Jack has returned. He is a soggy, exhausted, dirty-feet-and moldy-smelling eleven-year old boy with incredible sleeping-bag head and mud all over his wellies.
Must toss him upside the bathtub, then allow his clothes to walk themselves into the washer. . . . ..... . .
And he came back with three odd socks! :huh: One, perhaps I can understand....but three? I asked him if they were making sock puppets er sumphin'. . . .. . ...

Lisa, what a spectacular ship! These boats excite me so. . . . ....

Erica!!! Welcome back!!! Get busy - - you've got 500 pages to peruse! :rolleyes:

Mornin all
I got a Roomba! :D Those vacuum dealies that wander around your house and vacuum?
It's wandering around now, banging into chair legs and stuff and distressing the cats exceedingly. It's pretty noisy, but normally it'll run while I'm not home, so I can deal with that.

Ah, but Jess.....have you heard of the Woomba?


Emily, has Canada gotten a medal in furling yet? Or is that a winter sport. I can never remember those off-Broadway sports. :huh:

Hell, I dunno......hose furling......like a true Canuck, I'd be waaaaaaaaay outta any medal contention....... <_<

Canadian Cottages haunted by native Australians? :huh: :o

We have Aboriginals here, too......though I believe now they prefer to be called First Nations People. Didn't have a run-in with the resident First Nation Elder ghost today..... just lay on the dock, jumped in the lake now and then, went out in the motorboat with my buddy and sang at the top of me lungs.......got up to dance and fell in.........but of course - - it's a canoe, not a cruise ship...........gawd. :huh: <_<

Jess!! The best of luck to you tomorrow.....will be thinking of you! Have you sang you farewell mantra to the big U? <_< :lol:

Gonna run the steps singing Rocky??

Done. AND......NOT in my Reeboks, but in my Birks, if you can imagine.
Beat DH, too. :ph34r: :P
I had trouble singing in this @#!!@#* humidity. It's almost as bad as Ottawa.

OMG....We have a FREE happy hour at this hotel....FREE alcoholic beverages in their very swank lounge from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, and free snacks - - gluten-free salsa and corn chips, and sliced fruit!

We're doing some Ben Franklin things tomorrow......
He really was quite a Renaissance man, now, wasn't he? :)

:lol: wub da wogic!!!!! :lol:
1st there's your multiples of 17, and now meting out symmetrical interpretations!!
<there's a wee mathematician in the poohbah, straining to jump the asymptote!>

Yes, I duno what's come over me......

...However, symmetry, I would say, is as much artistic as it is mathematical, n'est-ce-pas?

And asymptote??!! Gaaaaahhhhhhh........TOO MUCH MATHS!!!!!!!!

Susie, this is for you, with my apologies:

Asymptote (n): a straight line associated with a curve such that as a point moves along an infinite branch of the curve, the distance from the point to the line approaches zero and the slope of the curve at the point approaches the slope of the line...

Right, Ptaoughmn? :lol: :lol:
