pooplord -- I actually enjoy talking about weather. How can I talk about the weather (especially when it's cold as balls outside, as it is now) and not make it seem like small talk or extreme dorkery? I'm just fucked, aren't I?
Better extreme dorkery than lameass small talk. Discuss barometric pressure, the results of certain fronts and whatnot. As long as it's not "hoobydooby, sure is nipply out there!" you should be okay.
It's fine that you like to talk about weather as long as you are acutely aware and respectful of any signs given off by the other person that they don't give a shit.
Join a message board or something. Seriously, there's no cool way to talk about the weather.
You may like talking about the weather, but you also may run into someone like me who contrarily challenges every weather conversation with how much they'd wish for cold when it's hot or how if it weren't raining they'd be bitching about drought.
absolutcalm -- If they did a dramatic reimagining (ala BSG) of a 70s porno flick for cable TV, how would the plot go?
Boys in the Sand
on Logo: weekly vignettes of three New York City boys' trips out to Fire Island and the fabulous adventures they happen to fall ass-backwards into. It's Sex OUT of the City!
Debbie Does Dallas
on Lifetime: the dramatic sacrifices a young girl has to make achieve her goal of being a professional cheerleader. What price is too high to pay for your dreams?
on E!: A spinoff of Dr. 90210, this show focuses on a woman whose botched vagioplasty opened up a world of new choices to make. Guest appearances by the other Kardashian girls.
on ABC: it's just like Grey's Anatomy without the pesky fear of your doctors being more concerned about who they're porking in the closet than your test results.
letters_in_sand -- What should I tell people when they ask what my tattoo means?
"It means I hate my father."
"Kung Pao Karate."
"It's like, the connection between art and life, right? Like the beauty of spirituality and creating a haven for art on my own skin."
eideteker -- What is Tom Petty's greatest acting role? Other than that bit part in The Postman, I'd have to say any interview when he acted like he wasn't completely stoned. How about Jane Wiedlin?
When she acted like that Never-Was Da Brat had any credibility whatsoever in calling her a Has-Been.
Any time she acted like she was anything less than the brains of the Go-Gos operation.
renob423 -- did i miss something with the verison question? why did he say you didn't have to use it? why submit it at all if you don't think it's good enough? what is the worst place to be behind someone who has a big order like when someone at subway orders 3 subs
At the supermarket when the person in front of you either doesn't know what their WIC check can and cannot be used for, doesn't understand the cashier trying to explain it to them, or is pretending on either in order to score a Dr Pepper.
Behind the person at the bagel/donut shop who can't keep track of how many of their dozen they've chosen so far or what the other flavors are (i.e. what's hiding under the powdered sugar or is that chocolate chip or cinnamon raisin).
When you notice the minivan in front of you at the drive thru has at least five children bouncing around in the back.
After waiting for what felt like 7 hours to be close enough that you're within the concrete barriers at a toll booth (assuming you're dumb enough not to have an EZ Pass or equivalent), the reverse lights on the car ahead of you turn on.
Last Friday, returning home from work on the bus, an African American fellow of either the crackhead, crazy or otherwise unwell variety, issued Evan an under-the-breath threat to the effect of "fucking cracker bitch, I'll shank you in your ear. Four more days, motherfucker." So far, no ear-shankings. What other unexpected disappointments will we suffer under the Obama administration?
Elementary school cafeterias remain devoid of soda machines.
Widespread reports show telling your boss to go fuck himself will still result in a firing.
Daytime court television programs still limited to adjudicating small claims and other minor legal disputes/Supreme Court justices will not be replaced by Judges Judy, Joe Brown, Hatchett, Alex, and Mills Lane.
Did you really think Dark Knight would get a Best Picture Oscar nomination?
Yes. Hollywood loves to posthumously reward celebrities who died of exotic things like drug overdoses/It was totally awesome and deserved it/it might have made people give a shit about the Oscars.
No way. It's a comic book movie/people saw it/it made more money in 30 days than all of the 2007 Best Picture nominees combined.
At Evan's folks' house in Orlando (where we stayed this past weekend) they don't yet have cable so we had to watch TV with rabbit ears. Every ten minutes or so, a message scrolled across the top of the screen in both English and Spanish, saying if you are seeing this message, you won't be getting TV after February 21. Further evidence that:
Anybody who still isn't aware of the digital switch probably can't read.
Nobody actually watches TV with rabbit ears, this is all an elaborate plot for the nerds on slickdeals and other sites to make money buying converter boxes with the coupons and then selling the boxes on eBay.
If this is what the government calls "lack of sufficient public awareness", we really can't expect anyone to know anything, can we?
