When We Remember We Are All Mad . . .

I am in the great white north (AKA: America's Dairy Land State) until next week - visiting the parental units, other family members, participating in two epic bike rides and loads of other whatnot's. The husband joins me tomorrow. There is much to tell, such as the husband digging up our backyard, to then discovering a concrete swimming pool in our backyard, in turn leading him to rent a jack-hammer and now having a backyard swamp which is heavily guarded by southern alligators and prehistoric mosquito's. But that is a story that will wait until my return to the Longhorn City . . . .




Unfortunately, the [Tanning] "Butler" had nothing to do with it.

Yeah, 'cos as we all know they don't have the Internet in the North. Cheese doesn't transmit Giga-Watts very well or something.

Alli said...

Glad to hear from you! Hope you are having fun with the family!!!

Andy Granger said...

Good to see you are still insane . . . You were a freak in high school and you are a freak today . . .

The last post was a practical joke. I work with Andy and saw the website on his computer and thought this would be funny. Evidently I was wrong. Neither Andy or his sister Linda have anything to do with this. I feel bad. You seem like a nice girl . . .

Ian said...

Wow, six hours from hilarity to remorse. You could have at least waited for a reaction to see if anyone found it funny.

Do you find yourself saying things you think are funny and then saying "only kidding!", in case you offended someone? Then stop it. Nothing annoys me more. Funny to me is funny to everyone else and if it isn't, screw 'em, and people who don't lock their computers when they walk away deserve everything they get.

Ian,

You're no Roger Ebert, and nobody wants to hear it. Writing anonymous reviews on bs websites like this looks to be a little above your paygrade, so let's find a new hobby.

We're all on here to see if Godiva gets naked, period.

Hmm, criticizing me, in an anonymous comment, for writing anonymous comments on a blog where I'm obviously not anonymous. It's either fiendishly clever or a bit stupid. I haven't quite figured it out, but I got to tell you, I'm leaning towards the second one.

Alli: Thanks! I had a great time, but it went too fast! I planned on calling friends to meet with as well, but ran out of time. The husband and I return in August over Irish Fest and I definitely plan on meeting with them then! If they'll still have me . . . .

Ian: It had nothing to do with being prehistorically cheese challenged by CPU's and their damn giga-watts. It was all about NOT. HAVING. ENOUGH. TIME. TO. POST. Foo!

Andy: That's awesome you've come to my website! I found your response hilarious - even though you didn't ultimately write it.

***I asked my father if he remembered you the other day and he replied, "he was the guy trying to get you an extra hour out after Homecoming by rattling off a different time zone, right?" And then he mentioned something about the ensued visit to the police station on the same night . . . . uh. . . .he does remember! At least this time he laughed. Mom C always thought you were awesome too! Welcome! I love that you took the time to visit me in cyber space! I hear you're happy and that's fantastic! You always deserved that.

John: I haven't talked to AGranger in over 18 years, but if he's somewhat the same as when I did, you nailed him on the head. Funny post - no need to apologize! I freely admit that I'm insane as well as a freak, albeit a funny freak though (and don't you forget it). Ian will tell you the same (he is a really good guy and great friend as is his wife - don't be too hard on him. Besides, I will always take his side). Enough said.

P.S. Linda is listed/published in a couple earlier posts.

Edward "KickAss TakeNames" Kreppein #1: Um. Ow. I didn't think my website was bs. . . . However, you've redeemed points by making me laugh out loud. Sorry to disappoint, but it is highly unlikely you'll ever see me nekked on this here site. I mean, I consider it PG-13 and all, but there are some out there who may find it closer to being R-Rated. But never ever NC-17 . . . .

Jen said...

P.P.S. Ya'll need to back off of Ian. Or I'm gonna have to start kicking ass and you don't want me to do that.

mindy said...

Jen is back to regulate! Watch out, peops!

Ian said...

Damn, fun's over. The sheriff is back in town.

Ian - Are you related to Buffalo Bill? Please find a hobby.

Jen - Know your role and shut your mouth. If we want your opinion we'll give it to you.

Ian said...

Thanks for the concern, but I already have a hobby. Do Keefe, Bruyette & Woods know you're wasting their time on the Internet?

Godiva said...

Oh. That's right. I entirely forgot that this is my site where I can only hold an opinion at other people's wishes. Duh. So sorry. My fault. Won't happen again.

Ian, I will not "hot fuzz" the comment section. You are free to hex and vex all you like. In fact, I am sure Keefe, Bruyette & Woods might find this all very interesting. I know I do.

Andy Granger said...

Wow who'd have thought that a practical joke on me would turn as funny/bitter/than more funny than this. This is the real Andy Granger, and evidently the cause of 11 posts. First off, a few pleasantries.
ALLI _ I too am hoping you are having fun with the family!!
MINDY - Your picture is awesome. You seem to have a really kicking body, and if I wasn't married I would try to get you to divorce your husband. Or at least cheat on him. I'm very discreet. "What happens in Minnetonka stays in Minnetonka."
IAN - You wrote that "people who don't lock their computers desrve everything they get" That's cold man. And I'll tell you this, the day I feel threatened enough to lock my computer every time I take a digger is the day I give in to the terrorists and ambandon all my principles as an American. So I'm ashamed of you for being cold, but I'm more ashamed of you as an American.
JOHN L SLUSAR - You reap what you sow home boy. You tried to pull a fast one on me, and my girl Craney and her buddy Ian are about to pull rank and call you out to the higher ups over here. It couldn't have happened to a better guy. (hey Craney don't report him because then I'll get in trouble too)
CRANEY - Sweet webpage. Although we haven't spoken for several years I seem pretty much caught up on what's going on with you. Say hello to your parents, and apologize to them for me about the whole you getting arrested thing. And tell your Dad that thanks to the arrest you were home well before your curfew that night. My sister, who was really bummed out that john Slusar decided to be a funny guy had a good time in Miami with you. I'm sure she will be pissed to see that I have decided to log in. Lastly are you married? I scanned your web page and could find no references to your husband.
EDWARD KREPPEIN - Who are you?

Ian said...

Hey, it's not cold, it's good advice, you got off easy. Last time I did that someone e-mailed my entire department saying I'd be bringing donuts for breakfast next day. I didn't need to learn that lesson twice.
