How bizarre

For those of you with a paid LJ account -- have you tried the Friend of Friends feature? It's like the Friends, but expanded out one layer. For example, my friend of friends listing has a whole lot of people associated with anime, a singles list, and sports. I find it very intriguing, especially since I know nothing of anime, am basically married, and am impartial towards sports. Go fig!

More on the family reunion thing -- You didn't think that everything was done when the reunion finished, did you? Jen's mom and aunt are staying at our house on Saturday night. Saturday during the day her other aunt and uncle will be flying into ONT and stopping by the house to do the meet and greet. ... Great.... Actually, I don't mind as such, because I know that this is important to Jen.

Oh, and the printer.... Remember I bought a printer for Jen to take to work? Well, guess what has a broken power button? I can't win for losing these days. Heck, Jen whipped me three games straight in Guillotine last night. (Boy, if there was ever a sentence that could be taken the wrong way....)

Guillotine
With Guillotine, though, it doesn't matter who scores more points. All the glory of the game is in making the other player take Piss Boy.

Be warned: if you are playing some other game called Guillotine, please be aware that there is a different game called Guillotine in which one of the... oh dear...

...it's all perfectly respectable. Honest!

Maybe I should have quit while I was not too far behind

Cuts like a knife
No, perhaps you should have quit while you were a-head. *ahem*

Every time Piss Boy shows up in the line, the group of people we normally play with always cheer. We find no dishonor in getting him. I mean, he *is* worth a point after all, which is much better than the Hero of the People *ding*, which you can't mention without giving the sound effect of the sparkle from his teeth and thus the *ding*.

To those who have no idea what we are talking about, run to your local game store and buy a copy. You'll thank us.

Floats like a butter knife, stings like a nettle
*rimshot* Nicely done, Mr. K.

I think that this incident tells us that Americans will do anything for a point, whereas the British are happy to imagine unwarranted social stigmas and then try to observe them. Well, we never knew either of those...

Do y'all make the "boioioioioioing" noise every time the Master-Spy-On-A-Spring bounces to the back of the line?

Secret Agent Man
I'm still trying to imagine you actually verbalizing "y'all" with your accent.

Can't say that we make the springy noise, but I'll try it out on the next playing to see if it sticks.

You can blame the anime on me and Dusty. ;)

When Subcultures Collide, next on Geraldo.

Baby what a big surprise
er... the subject says it all. Well, except for the Baby part, but I have to stay with my lyrical subjects and the Chicago tune fit the best with the exception of one word, and this reply has gone on much to long to be useful, hasn't it?
