1 - I'd seen them once before, at their permanent show in Florida. I thought the use of water was pretty awesome (and the stage was spectacular) but the stunts were a bit toned down compared to the other show. Which makes sense because everything's wet -- much harder to keep your grip on things.

Is this the place to complain about the marked *lack* of pictures of Becks watching the Thunder Down Under show?

You'll just have to go see it in person, B.

Does 7 include the last sentence, as in "great cup of coffee till the very last drop"? Or does it exclude it, as in "great movie till the last third when they go on this weird aquatic adventure and space aliens come into it"? I'm trying to figure out what Goneril could have against little old ladies corrupting one another with tats and hogs.

You can take pictures after the Thunder Down Under, though. My wife got a good picture of my brother pretending to pinch one of the dancer's nipples when they came around to the tables.

I loved O, at any rate. I was actually surprised at how much I liked it, I didn't have high expectations.

A godamn 70 year old woman is out blasting away with her Glock. No more excuses you liberal pansies. Get out there and buy a gun like a real American.

16: You'll be pleased to know that PK and I spent the later part of the afternoon running around the yard shooting each other with a water pistol (me) and a potato gun (he). I have to admit that the potato gun is totally awesome.

I guess 14 refers to AI, but it could almost as accurately describe The Abyss.

My blind date tonight wasn't particularly good, but I'll probably see her again.

It would suck if I end up seeing this girl for long enough to mention things like "googling 'washerdreyer' will give you a good idea of how I spend my days." That's unlikely though.

B's going to have great blogging opportunities when that kid gets older. I'm guessing her first inkling that he has a potato gun is going to be when he gets hauled in by the cops for shooting a potato through a windshield.

It's possible, he certainly loves naughtiness. On the other hand, at bottom he does *not* like getting in trouble, and he's pretty clear on the distinction between naughty fun and "bad" naughty. So we'll see.

Fuck potato guns. Catapults.

PK is probably a little bit younger than my, uh, psuedo-nieces, but that's what supervision is for.

Oh, he would love that. We built catapults once out of plastic spoons and building toys and flung an entire bag of mini-marshmallows at each other across the living room floor.

Fuck potato guns. Catapults.

Potato guns can be fired from moving vehicles. Just saying.
