      Just have this running in the back of your head as the soundtrack and it'll be much easier.

    I think we may have finally overloaded the Klatsch's Youtue plugin. I'm not seeing anything we posted at all anymore...

      Yay, we got our video's back! I guess someone hit the degauss button.

      May 24, 2012 at 3:13 pm |
      • DJChilllyPhil, Jukebox King & Cold Stone God@AleeD

        WOW. I haven't heard the degauss button being mentioned for a long, long time... Old school.

    Stupidly crazy week here or me. How is everyone doing?

    Odd as today I am pretty much dressed identical to bachelor #1 on the left.

        HA! – Power Pink. Not a good color on me and it doesn't bode well with my salt and pepper hair.

        How are things in MHC?

        May 24, 2012 at 1:53 pm |
        • Truth™@Biddle

          Things are great here. Looking forward to a half day tomorrow, and hitting the trap range on Saturday.

          How about you?

          May 24, 2012 at 1:57 pm |
        • Sir Biddle@Truth

          Ready for this week to end and then its a weekend of grillin'. Other than that just trucking along here with 9 weeks to go until the lack of sleep starts all over again.

      I knew it! Blond hair, blue eyes, all buttoned down and proper – during daylight hours. ;)

      May 24, 2012 at 2:04 pm |
      • Sir Biddle@Al Eee Dee

        "during daylight hours"......the KEY words!

        How you doin'?

        May 24, 2012 at 2:38 pm |
      • AleeD®@Sir Bid

        Doin' fine, doin' fine. Busier than a one-armed woman at the Wallpapering Olympics. Training the gnu eng, trying to work on a new project and educating the non-eng newbies in the ways & wiles of engineering. Days are going by quickly.

        According to TWO, our hustle & bustle is shaking up in the DC area. ;)

        May 24, 2012 at 3:10 pm |
        • Sir Biddle@Al Eee Dee

          hussle and bussle in the DC area....huhhhh?!?!?

  5. RichardHead with a QOD

    If WD and I are fishing in a Bass Boat....Can we legally keep the catfish and redfish that we hook? This has bugged me for a long while.

    May 24, 2012 at 11:29 am |
    • Truth™@RichHead

      I don't care if catfish were falling from the sky, they are going home with me. Let me know if you want me to email my recipe for grilling them. Tasty little buggers.

      May 24, 2012 at 11:35 am |
    • AleeD®

      Better than being caught in a Treble Boat. That gets all high-pitched & squeaky. Nast.

    Don't you hate it when you're in the middle of a dream and the alarm goes off? You never know how it ends.

      What part of western PA?

      Any big plans for the long weekend?

    • Mary Shannon

      Welcome, Caroline. I'm a big fan of Scotland, I spent 6 weeks there one year on business (2 in January, the last 4 in May/June) and fell in love with the area. I would have happily stayed there for the duration of the project but it got cancelled.

      Welcome! I spent a week in your lovely homeland last October and fell in love with it. We'll do our best to make you feel at home here.

    • RichardHead@Truth

      Good Morning my Brother...Biddle is Rockin' the Power Pink outfit this morning.He must be headed to DDD after work. :)

      May 24, 2012 at 9:05 am |
      • The Witty One@Truth & RH

        I'm not blond so I would be the one rocking the "power" pink, or as I call it "I washed reds and whites together" pink.

  13. RichardHead@AleeD & Two

    Good Morning Sista' and Thanks for the Java. Here is my day so far......
    I woke up
    I took a shower
    I brushed my teeth
    I am drinking my coffee on the deck while watching WD TCB in the backyard.
    Anyway, a follow up on JBJ--Air Franceazz (JBJ's term ) lost her stroller ( her customized walker ) so she had a hard time walking around Denmark. But the ladies are troopers and made the best of the situation. On the bright side, AF found the walker and delivered it to the cruise ship which they will be on today. They haven't hit Russia yet. She is having fun tho.
    @TWO...Where you been? How's the mudder training going?

    May 24, 2012 at 7:32 am |
    • The Witty One@RH

      I've been slammed at work. Haven't had much time for training recently. Now that the weather is nicer I can do the fun stuff like free climbing and trail running. How are you and WD?

      May 24, 2012 at 8:19 am |
      • RichardHead@TWO

        Sounds like your gettin' it together. Good Luck on the race. WD and I are doing fantastic.....getting ready for the long weekend and cookout.

        May 24, 2012 at 8:23 am |
        • The Witty One@RH

          Nice :) I'm grilling up some chicken, stuffed burgers and snausages on Saturday and having a bunch of people over...or so my girlfriend told me last night.

          May 24, 2012 at 8:44 am |
        • RichardHead@TWO

          HA ! Gotta keep Momma Happy :)) It feels good getting back into the Grilling Mode. Yes Ladies,it's a Man Thing.

          May 24, 2012 at 8:54 am |
        • The Witty One@RH

          The weathers been good here. I've already grilled out 3 times in the last month. Nothing like sipping a cold beer while standing over a hot grill...

          May 24, 2012 at 9:27 am |
  14. AleeD®@DJ,CSGod

    *shudders* I wouldn't let either of them manage my hedge fund – or my hedge.
    Rich, thanks for the update on Ms. Jingles. I hope she tries some gen-y-ine borscht while she's there.
    Happy morning Chumarinos! Grab some coffee, chocolate or tea and tell me about your day.

    May 24, 2012 at 6:46 am |
    • The Witty One@AleeD

      What's shaking? Anything exciting been happening recently in my absence?

      May 24, 2012 at 7:09 am |
      • AleeD®
