Curse you little portable DVD player for your…. your… portability…

Posted in Crazy Wisdom on Monday, December 29, 2003 at 12:41 pm by flerly.

JT apparently left the DVD player at work. =\ No Firefly AGAIN for me. Oh my God, I’m jonesing…. I’ve had the DVDs since Christmas Eve, they traveled all over Chattavagas with me, but NO DVD player…. cuss… pant pant… drool… ugh. It’s a conspiracy.

Look, ma, I’m working. Shyeah. Man, I have so much to do. Brain just won’t turn on this morning. Got a weird random customer call, so I figure my new “direct dial” number must be in the phone directory in California. Don’t you just love it when a random person gets you on the phone, tells you right off they don’t know who you are, but since you work for the same company as who they were looking for, maybe YOU could help them instead. I was nice. I looked up phone numbers and email addresses for her. I looked up customer statuses in our database. She sounded like she’d been trying to get the right number for a while without luck, so… why not. When we hung up she sounded relieved. Sure, none of that was my job, but I feel better. Let’s call that a days work and knock off to go watch Looney Tunes, shall we? No? Darn.

Only found one cat part in my freshly-ground coffee this morning, but it’s still better coffee than anything I’ve had for the last several days. WTF do they call those prehistoric things…. percolators… that’s it. Oh God do they suck. Would you like a another cup of coffee with a third cup of coffee grinds dear? Sure thing, and better pass the floss, too. Ugh.

Boy oh boy am I craving me some ham. Having it for three meals a day for days in a row really gets you addicted to the stuff. Good thing there’s two kinds of ham in our refrigerator right now….. My kingdom for some pasta. Or some sandwiches…. NOT. We went to see Bad Santa Friday night, and since then our catch phrase has been, Can I make you some sandwiches? or some variation, for every situation. You’d be surprised how often you can work it in. Don’t feel well dear? Let me make you some sandwiches. or We’re out of bourbon? Better let me make you some sandwiches. It’s better when it makes no sense. It’s better when we’ve forgotten about it for a while and someone works it in. It will be best when we say it to the men in white coats who come to take us away…

I guess the funniest moment this weekend was our short visit to the house of Nick and Mandy. Their baby is just a month old, and he’s short. Not just baby-small, but short. Taking after his mom, it seems. First time we’ve seen little Hayden, Mandy picks him up, turns to JT and myself, “Would you like to hold him?” she asks. A resounding “NO!” we say in unison. She laughs. “I figured,” she says. Moments later he spits up all over her shirt. “His formula isn’t agreeing with him,” she explains.

We should have offered to make him some sandwiches.

    Prepare to be jealous…
    apparently my mother sent me the Battlestar Galactica DVD set for Christmas! It hasn’t arrived yet, but it is surely coming!!
    I saw Bad Santa too. It left me feeling a little sick. There comes a point where mean and nasty just isnt’ funny. It’s just mean and nasty. I think the part of that movie that will stick with me forever is Lauren Graham’s line “Fuck me, Santa! Fuck me, Santa! Fuck me, Santa!”
    All in all, I wish I hadn’t seen it now. Billy Bob Thornton just plays the character too well. In any case, I am off to see Paycheck and Peter Pan today. Hope they are better than Bad Santa.
    PS: Go see Elf. It was a great flick. Don’t see Haunted Mansion, it sucked.

    You tell me how many hours it will take us to watch the entire Battlestar DVD set, we’ll add that to watching the entire Firefly set, and BOOM, I’ll put in for vacation. =)

    It must happen.

    DVD Features:

    * Six Disc Set Includes All 24 Hours of the Original Series, Presented in Their Original Broadcast Order
    * Collectible “Cyclon Head” Packaging Featuring a Lenticular Red Eye
    * Number of discs: 6

    Of course, that fact that I don’t have a TV or DVD player or furniture might hinder our efforts to get our nerd on. As cool as it would be to have you guys up, it would probably be better to just wait til March and I’ll bring it there for a few days. Your call, though.

    I always forget you’re watching all this shit on your computer.

    You suck. I’m watching Firefly without you. Someday. When I get a DVD player for this laptop that works. I’ll watch it. You’ll see. I’ll do it. And I’ll be enjoying it.


    Battlestar Galactica sucks anywho.
