Why does this awful movie have to have such catchy tunes?

"Yeah, every girl that lives here know Miss Mona's no-no rules" LOL!

I love the banjo music at 1.52! It's like that old "Family Fued" theme!

Does anyone know if Marvin Zindler was offended by Dom DeLuise's portrayal? It's pretty rough.

Yes.. let's go frolic in IronTiger's thought provoking threads. I'm sorry, but this forum is better with Niche, Red, and Meme contributing.

Speaking of which, when and where is our next happy hour?

Quantity ≠ Quality

Kolache Factory has Bacon & Cheese kolaches that are absolutely AWESOME.

I love breakfast, but I rarely eat it. I love cheese eggs, crispy (not crunchy) bacon, good patty sausage (not soggy with grease) with a buttered toasted english muffin or toast.

I REALLY love Creamed chipped beef, but it is tough to find. The last place I found that had it was in New Jersey of all places.

I really want to try something called "egg in a basket". V makes it for the girl in V for Vendetta and I hear they are really good.

If I could find some eggs benedict, that would make me happy. I know where I can find it at about 2am on a Friday or Saturday, but it costs $14 bucks and you have to deal with shoeing away strippers.

Tough work, but someone's gotta do it. If you tip well enough, won't one come over to your place to make breakfast? :)

I'll eat breakfast all day long. I'm well known for going to "The Mexicana" in the montrose and ordering breakfast at dinner or lunchtime. I'm curious to know what "egg in a basket" is sound interesting, but I've never had eggs Benedict. Always seems traitorous to me for some reason.

As long as you don't give the line, "Scrambled or fertilized?"

Immedately after the crappy film release, Marvin was outraged of the ridiculous imitation by Delouise. Everyone I knew despised this, well that is, what has to be one of the worse films ever made. Pure torture. :angry2::lol:

It may be a bad movie, I agree, but those songs have been stuck in my head for over a week. I even contemplated downloading some, but it might cause later embarrassment so I haven't. Yet.

Still singing, "20 fans were turnin', they were turnin', 20 fans were turnin' in every room. Fevers were a burnin'..."

"Oooh, I love to dance a little sidestep. Now they see me now they don't..."

Somebody help me.

speaking of Dolly P, once on Johnny Carson, he asked her why they hadn't placed her bosom (trademark) in cement on the Hollwood Walk of fame and she jokingly said heck no some little kid might fall in an hurt himself!

I saw I am Legend. it was pretty good. Spend most of the weekend with two of my nieces and a nephew. He can be a bit of a handful, but I love him to death. The other two were good. The eldest is really becoming a beautiful young lady. Time for me to get out the baseball bat, knife and pistol.

Does a microwave stay at a constant temprature from start to finish?

if you keep the heating percentage the same, it should hit your food with the same amount of waves (measured in Hz?)

when you put it on a preset like "potato" you can hear noises as the percentage goes up and down

Really? I've never even seen that option. I know there are different levels you can set it on, but it usually stays constant throughout the heating process.

Very interesting though.

Have you ever been distracted and did something bizarre?

The microwave question reminded of once I was in a big hurry and I placed a banana in the microwave and turn on high. After I stopped yapping I realized what I did and popped open the door just in time. One hot banana.

Once my brother and I were hurrying to go out at the same time (different crowds). We were both using the RR sink. I was about to brush my teeth and he was just out of the shower and opening up the tube of Brylcream. I grabbed the hair oil and started to put on my toothbrush and he was squeezing the Colgate into his palms to start rubbing into his hair. Halt!

Would have been a real disaster. hee hee :o:P

lol. both pretty funny.

Who knows how many times I've tried to put something in the wrong place, like putting the milk in the pantry.

Mine goes up and down in power that radiates the food. You can hear the fan blowing at different speeds as well.

I'm gonna have to take a close look at this. I never knew. Can yall imagine where we'd be without the microwave? No instant food, no "instant" analogies for life...

I love my microwave. Of course I glow in the dark at night as well.

But it comes in handy on those late night trip to the potty.

Do you really eat in the middle of the night? I don't see how people do that. I can't even drink water in the middle of the night. Usually I don't get up in the middle of the night at all.

I just have to say this.

It is really boring at work today!

Most are on vacations, etc.

My old job was much better if it was slow on holidays they would just announce for everyone to GO HOME! :D

lol. We got an email yesterday saying everyone could go home at 3 but still get paid a full days work. I think most are heading out by noon at the latest thought.

But hey, I've been bored ALL WEEK, lol. It doubly sucks when nobody is on HAIF either.

Yeah, we're closing up shop at three, also...and I don't have to be back until Jan. 2...yay

Microwaves don't produce heat, so your question is flawed from the get go. Microwaves cause the water molecules in items placed inside to agitate thus causing them to heat up and cook the food items. They cause heat, they don't produce it (in the sense that a stove or oven does).

You can also put metal in a microwave. The arcing that occurs is caused because of two edges of the material getting too close and then, well, arcing.

As far as why it takes longer to do one than two, it goes back to the fact that the microwave does not generate heat. For example, if you heat an oven to 425 and put in one pizza, it will take 13 minutes (Totino's Party Pizzas, yum!), putting in two will take the same amount of time (very slight difference in time possibly). This is because the temperature inside the over is 425 regardless of how many items are in the oven. When you put something in the microwave, the energy used to bombard the item and cause the water molecules to agitate is finite, so if there are more molecules to move, it will simply take longer.

Does anyone do dream analysis around here?

What does it mean if in your dream you are pregnant with a horse, and you can see the hove (hoof?), the horseshoe pressing through the belly?

Oh, and to the early question about being distracted, I've put my cell phone in the freezer...twice.

While in a rush I have put my car key into the front door as if to start up the house!

and the "horsey" question is reminicent of the dream I mentioned that someone told me they had where a horse's tail was slapping them over and over again.

Maybe there's a connection Wiiiiiiilbur!

My dreams are forgotten upon waking. Why is that?

Too many rock concerts? hee hee

Once I was so cotton mouth/thirsty that I dreamt I was clawing at a soda machine for a coca-cola. Finally busting it open and slamming down about 5-6 ice chilling cold drinks!

Another time I was real, real hungry and dream't I ordered a hamburger/large fries at Drive thru restuarant and as the waitress brought the food I yanked it from her and started devouring it like madness! Woke up an surprised pillow was intact.lol :blush:

I've heard (or read somewhere) that to know if you are asleep or dreaming (I guess if you have REALLY vivid dreams) is to read something. If you can read it you are not dreaming. If you cannot read it (like the letters are backwards or in Russian .. or Alien) then you are dreaming.

As if EYE want to read anything in a dream!

Do any of you experience sleep paralysis? It's only happened to me about five times ever. The most recent was a little over a week ago. It's when your brain wakes up before your body does. You're lying there fully aware of your surroundings, but can't move. You're paralyzed. It's scary, especially when you don't know what it is.

Yes, but my doctor said I'd actually been abducted by aliens.

How was Sonny Bono ever as popular as he was with this voice of his?

http://youtube.com/watch?v=WBMQAeAhQ7M

I mean, I like him, but still.

I like this song.

He was clearly the bad (singer) part of the team, however; he was such a charming and funny guy no one cared. The TV shows proved his zaniness and quick wit. I sort of hated how she always insulted him on the show as the norm or part of the act but he went along with it for the laughs. She had become pretty obnoxious by mid 70's. (See reruns if possible)

At his funeral service/eulogy, Cher spoke for quite an extended period of how he made it possible for her to become a big star. This is true. He was older and more experienced in the business and she was just a kid as she puts it. Had it not been for him she never would have made it.

"So let them say your hair's too long

'Cause I don't care, with you I can't go wrong"

I Got You babe! :D

I wish TV Land still showed reruns of the series.

Old variety shows from the '70s and '60s are my latest fixation. Every Saturday I record Lawrence Welk on PBS. And it's not to make fun of it, though I do that a little bit; I have a genuine fondness for these types of shows. The music's fun, the sets and costumes are colorful, it's a cheery atmosphere, it's clean entertainment; they all seem oblivious to the world's problems. It's a whole other world. You'd never see this type of show on TV nowadays unless it were a spoof. This is good stuff!

You got all the above correct! People weren't trying to pretend that there were bad events going on around the world, you just had to continue enjoying life here at home. We were lucky that (we kids) got the chance to see TV in it's real heyday. Just last night on PBS they had a special "Pioneers of Television"

http://www.pbs.org/pioneersoftelevision/?c...sion_2008-01-03

You should have seen it! Described how certain shows were created and what barriers people had to go through to even have a chance to make it in TV. Desi Arnaz was almost turned away because of his Cuban ancestry!? Lucille Ball persisted and won. Rest is TV history.

You should check out the Norma Lear comedies. Almost everyone was a hit! All In the Family, The Jefferson's, Maude, etc. The transition from the more innocent 60's to the liberated 70's is evident but done in hilarity. You can still buy many at Barnes & Noble and Amazon.

So funny you mentioned that. I saw it on the schedule and set my DVR to record it! I was going to watch it last night when I got into bed, but I got sleepy. Maybe tonight.

I occasionly watch "Good Times", also a Norman Lear show, or "Sanford & Son".

"Good Times" is entertaining for the audience reactions alone.

Couldn't beat Jay Ward's famous characters either!

I always liked the bad guys, Boris & Natasha. The Russian accents were hysterical. "Must get moose and squirrel". The narrator was equally hilarious. Kids never understood shtick or the underlying adult humor jokes but they got away with it.

Fractured Fairy Tales was a farce or parodity of real childrens stories but with a hip, twisted turn. Fun days. I can still hear the funny theme music.

"Dried nasal mucus (vulgarly or colloquially called "snot", "booger(s)", "boogie(s)" (US) or "bogey" (UK)) is partially solidified mucus from the nose. Dried nasal mucus forms when the mucus traps dust and other particles in the air. Mucus dries around the particle and hardens, somewhat like a pearl forming in an oyster."

LOL

I don't leave my car running while pumping the gas, but I do use my cell phone. A few weeks ago I was witness to a women tearing into this guy because he was smoking at the gas station, she was telling him he is going to be responsible for killing hundreds when the place blows up and takes out the neighborhood. Could an exploding gas station really take out a neighborhood? I don't think so, I think it would take a refinary explosion. Although I do think the woman was right to yell at him, who smokes while pumping gas?

When it comes to dogs and cats, what makes a better pet, the females or males? The only dog I ever had was a female, and the only cat I ever had was a male, and he was mean, not to me, but he was a mean cat. Anyways, a friend of mine has a dog that had puppies, and I was offered one, except that all the female puppies are spoken for. I was just wondering if there is much of a difference between having a female or male pet, if they've been spayed and neutered.
