Matissta feeling so lousy that Flann had to walk the dawg earlier. Caught a glimpse of the recycling bin on the way out the front door. Saw emtpy tequila and triple sec bottles.

Recalled dancing on back deck and singing as LOUDLY as we could all the Michael Jackson songs on my iPod. Put the speakers out there. Sang REAL LOUD.

Am now remembering the look of an older couple as they walked passed on the sidewalk near my backyard. We sang, "Beat it. Beat it . . . (unintelligible lyrics) . . . Just beat it!!!!!"

Oh dear.

Flannista

Uh-oh. Just remembered something else.

At the end of the evening, Sassley asked for a margarita in a "to-go" cup. I made it for her. Can't remember if I added the margarita mix. Walked her home (she lives directly across from me).

I'll let you know when I see her again.

PEACEsista

Wish I had your deck performance on video ...

I partied with my mom and brother's family last night ... two glasses of wine ... no singing. Feeling fine today.

Chrysosistah

Oh, Dear...so are you now resembling Whistler's mother???

The whole family went last night to a birthday party of a fellow I first became familiar with on FB, Planta knew of him before (so there you are for making friends with people first met online - made/reinforced at least 3 now!). Enjoyable, good conversations, but much more fuddy-duddy than your evening, it sounds like....

Flannista

Actually, Matiss has a stomach ache. We are not hung over -- can't speak for Sassley, though. Still haven't seen her.

My mouth feels like I've been chewing on gym socks because I got out the pipe I purchased in London in 1977 (the day Elvis died, actually) and packed some tobacco (yes, tobacco) and we all took turns smoking it. Jersey did this with us when she was here. So she knows what I'm talking about.

Chrysosistah

Geez, if you're gonna smoke, I'd find something better than tobacco...

Carolyn

Okay, what imposter is posting under Chryso's name?!

Flannista

Critty.

Carolyn

I am laughing, Flann, with no adequate way to post it----laughing.

Carolyn

By the way, you two with your stomachaches today remind of children who steal grandads terbachy and smoke a crudely rolled-one behind the barn. Couple that with tequila and you got a whole new brand of green-faced queasy.

Flannista

Matiss just walked through the door, green-faced.

We're drinking seltzer water and vowing to lay off the terbachy -- at least terbachy that's about a decade old. No wonder it lit up so quick . . . like dry firewood.

Carolyn

That would be what humidors are far, you lovable rubes, you. Betcha even fresh-faced Chryso would've passed on a pull at that pipe.

Chrysosistah

You betcha, Carolyn! Hey, I'm not completely naive, just got the misspent youth stuff done in my youth, like Noway ;-)

(just got back from the movies, saw Transformers, of course, with kiddo & Planta - it hit the target market...of which I am not really a part of, although there were a few cute moments...)

Flannista

Chryso -- there's no way on god's green-faced earth that I will see the sequel to "Transformers." I did not read ONE good review. How did you stand all the noise? I heard that it was just one explosion after another and that it had little of the humor and cleverness of the first "Transformers."

Stick with Harry Potter, dear one.

Chrysosistah

Nah, it wasn't that bad, although I was a tad concerned going in. We even got the good chairs with footrests (*score*!). It's family time, that's all. My primary objection was the director's desire/design to film really tight - or close cropped - footage, so it's just a big blur of metal whirling across the screen. Of course, it's all CGI, so WTF.

I really didn't like the location discrepancies either, they placed the Great Pyramids of Egypt right next to Petra, and all out in the middle of nowhere.

I think my family would jazz me for being too picky and not getting into the spirit of the movie. But once they are able to reanimate an SR71 Blackbird (turning into an old Scottish-accented transformer) at the Smithsonian Air & Space museum and not set off every alarm in joint, it rather lost all semblance of reality for me...

Unlike the Potters, who start off on the premise of unreality ;-)

Chrysosistah

Has anyone else noted the time discrepancies in the coming sequal to Ice Age that somehow we have mammals & dinosaurs together, with apparently dinosaurs coming along after the mammals? I might have missed a key plot point, but do we really need to contribute to people's confused sense of time lines??

Jerseysista

I had that same concern, Chryso, about the timeline of dinosaurs and mammals until I saw a trailer that showed Syd or Ray (what's the mammoth's name?) or someone commenting on the anachronism as part of the film dialogue. There evidently is some explanation or at least an acknowledgment in the movie that large mammals and dinosaurs did not coexist.

At any rate, I'm looking forward to seeing it. Love that squirrely thing and his acorn.

Jerseysista

Chryso, have you been to Petra? I have and I have rarely found anyone else who has been there or even knows about it. One of my favorite places in the world.

Chrysosistah

Hey!! Planta has been DYING to go see Petra, but hasn't been able to pull together a traveling companion for the trip. He knows someone at work who's originally from Jordan, so that would be an ideal companion. Just the coordination stuff. Petra was also featured in one of the Indiana Jones movies, I'd bet you'd find people who would recognize that!

Glad to hear that they do acknowledge that Dinosaurs didn't live with mammals - and yeah, we've always enjoyed watching that squirrel chase that darned nut! :-)
