The new series of Lewis started off great last night. DS Hathaway is very charming :)
I love the way Kevin Whately portrays Lewis with his droll sense of humour. My sister and I loved him in Morse, and I know she would have loved 'Lewis'.

@Hikari,

If you are picking up a med office, I am surprised they have not put up security, but your nighttime use will not be slowing them down. A point can be made they are laying out money for access, and you are freeloading, but I doubt you will be able to do anything that will harm them, or slow them. But anyone who puts a "guest" connection out there, well, you can jump on.

Hopefully next neighbor will be amenable to sharing, though some prefer hardwired connections.

I don't think it's a medical office, really. They would be the last one who would want an unsecured connection, besides a bank. The only businesses near me are medical offices, though. One bank on the corner. There's an elderly hairdresser a few doors down but he most definitely does not have the Internet. Must be a private residence, but it goes in and out; sometimes it's in the list and sometimes not.

Looks like I have a reprieve, though. Apparently we did not get cancelled today. The street is all torn up due to road construction; bet the cable van couldn't get through.

In an unrelated anecdote, I have three cats who are all quirky in their own individual ways. I have just discovered that one is crazy for garlic dip, of all things. The same one also seems inordinately interested in alcohol. Tonight she had to investigate the beer glass. One time, when I had a Crown & Coke, I had set the glass down and she came over to investigate. I glanced away for a minute, thinking she'd take one sniff and run. Only to see, when I looked again that that little stinker was actually lapping at my drink. So apparently I have a feline with a drinks problem and a fetish for garlic and green olives. She dined on the top-shelf tuna dinner this evening and now she wants garlic dip and beer. Tuna was too boring, maybe?

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks cable is evil.

I get the same reaction from the cable solicitors.

Then I go on a tangent about how cable and technology are the bane of the human race, and so on, and so on, until they finally realize that I just must be weird or mentally disturbed, and they don't need to come back!

**Same technique works for Jehovah's Witnesses.

The worst are the salespeople who want to sign you up for the Jehovah's Witness Cable Network. Once they get their Hush Puppies in your door you're a goner.

Silly. Cable is fine, so are phones, televisions, computers and automobiles. Just about everything has its flaws or "something" someone may find objectionable, but hey, that's technology and that's life in general.

The best defense against Jehovah's Witnesses is to answer the door naked, tell them you're glad they came and you and the others in the other room are having an orgy and need more participants.

Well, you'd have to always answer the door naked, because it's not as if they yell "Jehovah's Witnesses!!! Open up!!!!"
But opening the door naked is your prerogative, I guess. I'd never do it.

But sometimes I do answer the door wearing only swim fins.

What, you don't have one of those peep holes in your door that lets you see who it is?

re: "But sometimes I do answer the door wearing only swim fins."

lolol....Good for you. I'm sure visitors appreciate the fact that you go out of your way to dress for the occasion (whatever that is) and of which I'm sure leads to them either running away in terror or an interesting night at home with strangers and/or friends.

Even with a peephole, it's not as if Jehovah's Witnesses wear costumes with a big JW logo or anything. They tend to wear J.C.Penney suits, in colors similar to the underside of a driven-over armadillo.

As for answering the door wearing only swim fins, well, sometimes you just want to dress up.

Better safe than sorry though, right?

Naw, I prefer sorry. Safe is so wussy.

CHOCOLATE MATH

Okay, Loungers, try this--I know you love chocolate. I did this multiple times and it works. Maybe the theoretical mathematicians among us can tell us why this works, but in the meantime, it's just fun.

1. Think of the number of times in a week you'd like to consume chocolate. More than once but not
greater than 10.
2. Double that number.

3. Add 5.
4. Multiply that number by 50. Yes, you may use a calculator.
5. If you have already had your birthday this year, add 1762; otherwise add 1761
7. Subtract the four-digit year you were born.

Now you should have a three-digit number made up of your original number and your current age!

And that is your AGE BY CHOCOLATE. Neat, huh?

By this calculation, I outrank Methuselah himself.

Hikari:

Problem is, if you never cease to crave chocolate, that technically only counts as one "time".

Re: "AGE BY CHOCOLATE"

That makes me:

-219 years old.

Honestly, I like a good chunk of chocolate every once in awhile, but I don't *think about it* each week, if ever, so I couldn't multiply by 50 any other number but zero.

Here are some pictures that I took yesterday at one of my favorite movie theaters to visit in my area...

This was taken in the front lobby as you enter the main entrance of the theater.

This one is of huge murals of R2-D2, King Kong, and Elvis Presley that are located just after the ticket booth.

This image is of a big tub of popcorn that rests atop the concession stand.

This is a view of the concession stand taken from the video game area.

This is the big bucket of popcorn over the concession stand but taken from the other side.

Hopefully these pictures all upload correctly. I took a lot more photos of the display stands located in the main lobby area advertising current and upcoming movies such as The Amazing Spider-Man, the new Ice Age flick, the Avengers displays etcetera.

What, you people need no alibis? All choirgirls and boys are we?

Bumping this thread as the second page is unacceptable. :p

Posted on May 20, 2012 7:40:52 AM PDT
I think choirboys and choirgirls get away with more than we imagine.
