"I could have spayed anything." -- A veterinarian assessment of how sober she was on a Saturday night, after 1 drink (October 2016). ...we all just moaned about the election, but our long national nightmare will soon be over -- to be immediately followed by a longer one. -- David G. deftly summarizes the 2016 US Election (November 2016). I had this weird dream about about cannibalist waffles, wandering about a haunted mansion boosting our sanity by going to church. -- Jeff Hartline sort of recalls a game of Betrayal at the House on the Hill played as part of Katie's birthday (December 2016). > Since neither of you have lived here in quite some time, > you've missed . . . the heroine epidemic I haven't missed it. My 5 year old niece is addicted to Frozen, which has two heroines. When I was a kid, stories often only had one, so I agree: this heroine thing is really getting out of hand. -- Ralley "Agrees" with Mowgli's Assessment (January 2017). [Lisa holds 2 pairs of bananas and asks her 3-year-old to count them.] [pointing to each banana] "1...2...1...2." "That's good, but can you count them and keep going?" [pointing to each banana] "1...2...3...4...5...6...7...8...." -- Lisa tries to be precise but is bested by Carl (February 2017).

The totality is what it's all about anyway. > > I thought length doesn't matter. Only the girth of the totality zone. Here I am thinking like a girl again... -- It's not the size of your umbra, it's how you use it (August 2017). > As for refunds, Fall League is all sunk costs - we still have > to pay for lights and insurance. In my mind, it's not our fault > that she didn't stretch / train / warm up / have better genetics > and she committed to playing in the place of someone else. I think our break-even point with lights was 42 people and we had 52 registrations. Plus we got $300 in sponsorship. And summer league covered insurance for the year. I'm OK with us showing partial mercy on her as a partial refund for a partial tear (or whatever it is).
