ccjohn -- Which is gayer: staycation or herstory?
ccjohn -- When someone tries to coin new words that are like gay (cubed), is there any hope or are they doomed to remain HSN Kathy Lee Perky?
Doomed to kitty sweatshirt sets and toaster coozies.
It's not in the coining of these terms, it's in the overuse and absence of irony.
trappedinabay -- Is it bad form to quietly leave the office around noon and just answer emails from your blackberry while sitting in the park for the rest of the afternoon?
Every email you sent from your bed at 11:30 on a weeknight is worth three emails sent from the park on a beautiful afternoon.
It's only bad form if you don't also have a beer or a boozy Slurpee in your hand.
Nope. The key here is quietly leave the office. Colorfully announcing such, like a few people I could picture doing, would be bad form.
Yes. Don't halfass it by bringing your Blackberry with you. Conveniently leave it in the office or find a place in the park with no bars. Go big or go back to work.
absolutcalm -- I know you've seen Indiana Jones and the etc etc, so which was the most glaring FUCK YOU George Lucas talked Spielberg into including? I have not seen Indiana Jones yet, for reasons conveniently provided in the answers to eideteker immediately following this question. Also, living in the self-imposed media void that I do, I remain unspoiled as to the plot or any Lucas or Spielbergisms therein. If you've seen A|I, you know you can't pin the blame squarely on Lucas.
The Nazis use faster, more streamlined vehicles and swiched from human S.S. Soldiers to droids. It's not because Lucas and Speilberg have better CGI now, it's that all this was secret Nazi stuff they had after WWII that nobody knows about.
Shia LeBeuf is Indiana Jones. Thanks to his sip from the Holy Grail, Indy has gained eternal life and actually de-aged back to 22 or whatever. Harrison Ford is the latest old man to take the name to deflect suspicion. Like the Dread Pirate Roberts.
At the end of the movie, Indy shows Nazi Galadriel the atrocity of the Holocaust & the harrowing effects it had on the Jews & the world. In a touching final scene, she falls to her knees at Auschwitz begging for a chance to go back and save them.
The spinning sword guy shot first.
eideteker -- How stupid am I for going to see Indy opening weekend, and why? I know you're not stupid, but you have to have had a reason for going to a movie like that on opening weekend. Opening Memorial Day weekend no less.
You love to wait in a long line for the privilege of paying $10 to sit next to a stranger with no buffer seat, spending 2 hours jockeying for the armrest and trying to figure out whose cupholder that is.
You like to be the person who tells everyone it's not worth seeing in the theater, rather than the one who saves their time and money and catches it at the 2nd run theater or on DVD.
Any summer blockbuster that has movie reviewers thinking they're all clever and punny for being the fifteenth one to call it a "whip-cracking good time" or "what moviegoers have been Jones-ing for" is a film I've got to see right away!
The same reason you watch Survivor or American Idol - it's worth the agony just to deflect the slackjawed stares and gasps of shock from your coworkers. "YOU didn't SEE Indiana JONES on opening WEEKend? Guys! He hasn't SEEN Indiana JONES yet!"
renob423 -- whats up with those texas poligymust women and that fuckin hair-do that shows all the forhead? are these people being prossicuted for just sittin around and fuckin and poppin out kids like lazy hippies? does god like that fuckin hairdo or something?
At least they have the excuse of living a sheltered life. What is up with the white trash hickstache? Sure, baby hicks take after their families, but they're watching TV. They know normal people don't have them. Why haven't they disappeared yet?
It's a little more complicated than that. These people built houses and made clothes and shit. Like hippies have ever done that much.
God's preferred haircut is the pompadour. But it's not really a woman's style, so this (and the Jersey butt-bangs) are the most sacred equivalent.
You clearly got to the core of this story. Next up: renob423
-- whats up with that ostrian incest guy and that fuckin crap job he did on his basemint dungon? is he being prossicuted for not gettin permits and shit?

haveyaseenlucky -- My Grandma bought me Slave-1 with carbonite frozen Han Solo for my birthday when I was about 7 or 8. Has a grandparent ever gifted anything cooler?
Maybe if grandma remembered you liked those video games so she bought the Atari 2600 and milk crate full of cartridges for you the last time she was at a yard sale.
My grandmother bought me my first pair of Doc Martens in 1994. She wasn't sure I'd get $120 worth of use out of them before they fell apart. So far, they've averaged out to about $8 a year.
"C'mere, boy. Grandpa's gonna give you something that is special to him. You see this knife here? Look at the eagle and the funny cross carved on it. I pulled it off a dead Kraut in Brugges. Grandpa was a lot younger and stronger then."
Every year, my Sister-in-Law's grandmother sends a box of individually wrapped presents intended for all of us, but with no gift tags. We dig into it like a grab bag and end up with Dollar Store Leatherman tools, shaving cream, all sorts of shit.
pooplord -- Tell me lies, tell me sweet little lies?
I stabbed myself in the ear with a letter opener when I was five.
My dad played for the Yankees' AA farm team.
I have every Precious Moments figurine made from 1991 - 1996.
I have never played a game of Pay Day that I didn't win.
pooplord -- Care to make up a question involving me going to see the Sex and the City movie with my mom on Saturday? Please? (the husband will be out of town... apparently this is the kind of shit I do when that happens)
What's the ratio of gay guys to moms & daughters or groups of chicks going to be in the theater?
Will there still be people in costume at the Saturday matinée?
Which cocktail(s) should I sneak in with me in my Starbucks travel mug?
Will my mom be shocked by how much more colorful the language is in the movie than on TBS?
Comedian, actor, and Mel Brooks Troupe member Harvey Korman passed away this morning. We all know his genius as Count de Monet and Hedley Lamarr, but a cruise through his imdb shows some lesser-known, laudible (probably in name only) roles. Such as:
"The Munsters" .... - Prehistoric Munster (1966) TV episode .... Prof. Fagenspahen
The Star Wars Holiday Special (1978) (TV) .... Krelman/Chef Gormaanda/Amorphian instructor
Herbie Goes Bananas (1980) .... Captain Blythe
The Pink Panther Strikes Again (1976) (scenes deleted) .... Prof. Auguste Balls
Last night, Evan's folks took us out to dinner to a place that got a positive review in the Washingtonian's Cheap Eats issue called "Pike Pizza". There's narry a pie to be found on the menu, however: it seems the owners bought the place that once was a pizza joint and didn't have the money to change the sign. What sort of food do they serve?
