More TV... YEAAAAH!


Gilmore is back on tonight with a new episode... I gotta wonder if anyone is holding their breath. Amy and Dan are poised to leave the show and this season has been nose diving with the Luke-with child-bit.

Hopefully things pick up.


More importantly, Scrubs is on tonight!

This is Sarah Chalke. Sarah plays Elliot. Sarah is hot.

Bow to Sarah.

It looks like Flop has put out an invitation to his pad for the memorial day weekend. I have looked at the calendar briefly - this summer is bad for Jed - but I have penciled the big Flop/Trish/Ella poker weekend in! We will have to see.

What's up in the world cats?

Speaking of summer...when is the fair...the Kreitner's are finally going to "take in" the fair this year. Perhaps a guide could be arranged.


b.o.

ps: yummy!!!!

krysta jo said...

Sarah Chalke used to be on Roseanne. That's class.

Deit Heimley said...

The Fair is Aug 10-20. I will have baby by then and look forward to Baby's First Fair fake tattoos!!

I love the Fair!! YEEEEEE!!!!! I WANT TO GO TO THE FAIR!!!! NOW!!!!

OK. Bringing it back in a bit. Does Dan still get his nearly unlimited Fair tickets, or have they caught on to the fact that Dan does not have nine children?

Kern said...

Unfortunately, I only get so much time in Des Moines, and I opted to come earlier this year rather than later because the heat just about killed me last year. This is what happens when one gets acclimated to temperate climates. The weather of the rest of the world is a scary thing.

In re: Sarah Chalke on Roseanne, does anyone remember the ep in which she had to take a job at a Hooters-style eating establishment because Mark, her husband wasn't bringing in enough money? I don't remember much else, except that it was a very special outfit, and it made my groundhog come out of its hole and see its shadow...

Damfino said...

I would be glad to give the Kreitners a five minute tour of the fair. If you want 10 min you will have to buy me a second beer.

Deit Heimley said...

OK. That's a disturbing analogy. I mean, yeah, a groundhog is fat and much bigger than you think, but it just doesn't seem like a good comparison. I mean a groundhog is also hairy and has sharp claws with which it likes to tear it's way into hole it can find.

I think most disturbing though is that you imply that your groundhog lives in a hole. That's just wrong on so many levels Kern.

Bad Kern Filth! Bad! Bad! Down! Sit! Stay!

Oh, but rather oddly, my verification word is vdcomm -- bit scary!

Kern said...

Moreso, Deit, it's that it always only comes out once a year for a special occassion, and even when it does, the event is over like that, leaving people wondering what all the fuss was about in the first place.

Deit Heimley said...

Yeah, exactly! You need to compare it to some feral animal that needs to be caged or it would get out and hurt someone! I mean I could see you say something like mongoose or red tipped fox (they like to eat beavers), but no chipmunk or titmouse, and especially no groundhog

krysta jo said...

Scary and pretty gross analogy if you think about it Kern. A groundhog is just a dirty rat. Is that what you are saying you are?

I'll be at the grand old state fair at least for a weekend I am sure. I am with Deit - I cannot wait...yummy fair food, overweight animals, baby pigs, and the opportunity to take in all the white trash of Iowa.

Ain't Right said...

Unfortunately I will be at the fair for the vast majority of it. Once again using my vacation time from my real job to earn half my normal wage trying to keep the ticketing system working throughout. Oh well, at least I get my own golf cart.

Kern said...

Deit-Now that you mention it, Red Tipped Fox that eats Beavers might be rather apropos...

Damfino said...

Keep your filthy red rocket to yerself Kern.

My word - what is happening here?

The fair comes up and all filth starts to fly!

Kern said...

The fair brings out the filthiest in all of us, I'm afraid.

Jed-Oh, I see. Now you're shy. And to think I let you be the big spoon last year after the party.

/runs away sobbing

Kern said...

I wish I had a golf cart. Like the big pimped out numbers like Snoop Dogg has.

Deit Heimley said...

And a fox can go long periods of time between meals too!

Although on a downer side note, they tend to not support award-winning comedies and doom the American public to watching hour after hour of crap.

But I mean, maybe you won't be that kind of fox. Maybe you will be the small, cute, and fuzzy (though still feral and wild) beaver munching fox of all our dreams!

Damfino said...

I am getting nauseous - anybody else?

Kern said...

No, but I am a tad confused. I thought the fox was a euphemism for my junk, not me.

Though the part about going without meals considering what the fox eats is more than appropriate in both cases I think.

Filthity Filth Filth Flarn Filth...

Deit Heimley said...

And this comes from the supposed "King of Filth"??!!

How the mighty have fallen. For shame Jed. For shame!

Deit Heimley said...

Are you not the some of the junk you keep caged in your pants??

Though I prefer mongoose. They're long and fat and eat lots of snakes.

Kern said...

Amen! Seconded.

Deit Heimley: King of Filth. Long live the king!

Sounds like a great movie title. Much better than Larry The Cable Guy: Undercover Health Inspector.

I hate that oaf.

FlopTheNuts said...

Very nice, Deit, your fox animal/network segue. That deserves another: very nice.

What is it about the IA St. Fair?! I'm considering, to paraphrase Sheriff, "taking in" "the fair" this year!

And, hey, Ain't Right, at least you'll be one-and-a-half dipping! (Like double dipping.) Well, sure, you'll be using your vacation time, but you'll be making some "play" scratch. Oh, wait, you'll be at the fair? Nevermind! It'll all get blown on beer, funnel cakes, turkey legs, and rides!

Deit Heimley said...

I refer to acknowlege his presense in this world. I mean when your entire act is making fun of people who are not white trash because they understand why a house should not also have a hitch, you deserve no respect. "HEE HEE I have no class. Ain't that funny!"

UGH!!!

He wears on my gay-driven cultural elitism!!






Oh, butt ... fart ... dick.

I almost forgot my filth for this post

FlopTheNuts said...

Yes, please do only pencil in Memorial Day weekend at Flop's. I may have to work part or all of that weekend. Yes, HUGE bummer. Long story short, my boss just had surgery to remove what was first diagnosed as benign lymph nodes. Well, they biopsied the first node right there in the operating room and found cancer. Ended up taking 4 other nodes. (Cut all along his left jaw line and down his neck - the pic he sent was lovely.) He's been out the last 2 weeks, will be in very little if at all the next few weeks. That means more work (help covering for Vance) for yours truly.

So, yeah, Memorial Day weekend is not definite yet!

Deit Heimley said...

DAMN SCIENCE!!! We need transporters!!!!!! Why don't we have transporters yet??!! I mean all of this would be so easy if we just had access to a couple of good Next Generation quality transporters!!

Kern said...

Yes, but if we design them, I don't want to go first.

Remember what happened to those first guys on Star Trek: The Motion Picture? Yeah, that would suck.

Deit Heimley said...

That's why I clarified Next Generation quality. Those guys could do ANYTHING with their transporters.

Kern said...

Ah, sorry, Deit. Glossed over the Next Generation part.

I know very little about Star Trek, believe it or not.

FlopTheNuts said...

Oh, yeah, ST:TNG transporters!!!! I go further and say we need ST: Nemesis transporters. (Nothing terribly only-die-hard-ST-fans-would-know specific that's better about Nemesis transporters than TNG transporters (that I know of, anyway), just that Nemesis transporters would be newer, and therefore probably faster and more technologically advanced than TNG transporters...)

How about we test the first transporter with Fox network execs?

Kern said...

Ha ha ha!

I second Flop's motion.

Deit Heimley said...

Too late. Someone has already done that. Quite unfortunatly it only removed the brain, leaving the executive completely unharmed. Sad really -- it had such hope.

Oh, but not to get into geek speak here, but if we really wanted the best transporters we'd get the ones used by the Asgard on SG1. Apparently those things can transport across the galaxy. But I figured that we didn't need anything that advanced since we were just trying to get to Michigan.

OH! And where is everyone?!?!?! The one day I can hang out on the blog and nobody's here!!!

Kern said...

Ahem.

FlopTheNuts said...

Ahthankyou, Kern!

Brilliant, Deit!

Didn't the test transport also, somehow mysteriously, remove the soul of the exec? Not only was it a mystery because of the whole notion of a soul, but that the exec had a soul pre-transport!

(What cartoon was it that had the network execs as T2-like beings? My memory fails me at the moment, but I remember the way the characters were drawn being Futurama-esque. Maybe the Simpsons?)

Never got into SG1. Watched a couple of episodes, caught bits of eps here and there, but nothing more. Maybe I'll get it into the Netflix queue. But, I imagine the SG1 transporters are like those in the movie, so I do know what you're talking about. They were a little slow (having to wait for the rings to come down), but I guess you sacrifice speed for distance? (Yes, I do realize this is all science fiction, geek talk! :) )

I have a list of folks I'd like to transport across the galaxy, but for not-wanting-to-open-a-can-of-worms' sake, I won't put any down.

Deit Heimley said...

So it's just you and me? The fox and the mongoose on our own to rape the blog as we see fit?

Kern said...

I thought you were going to say "not wanting to open a can of wormholes", since we are getting our geek on.

Kern said...

And Flop, too!

FlopTheNuts said...

Don'tcha love post timing, Deit? :)

Dang, Kern, I wish I'd thought of writing "wormholes"!

Hmmmm, what would my "animal nickname" be? Hyena? Tasmanian Devil? Road Runner? Ooooo, I know - Coyote! Keeps with the "Looney Toons" mini-theme I had going there, sounds somewhat manly/macho, and Wile E. (whom I think of when I hear coyote) "messes around" with technology and usually ends up hurting himself with/because of it. Not that I'm totally inept when it comes to tech, but I've fried my fair share of components, and my hands show scars from the many cuts, scrapes, and bruises from working on PCs. Learned from it, but have the physical and mental scars to show!

Deit Heimley said...

You know I was just sitting here thinking of all the different characters who used some form of transporter, and I have to say that my favorite would be the Warp Chambers used in the Marvel world, not because they were particularly efficient, but because they just seemed like such a bad idea. Didn't they end up being filled with a never ending supply of transdimentional evil characters who would accidently get loose. Of course this was in the late 80s and early 90s when the Marvel world didn't entirly make sense. Still got to love a plot device whose main value is to fail.

Like the ship's phaser bank on ST. I mean aside from Wrath of Kahn, when did those things even once prove effective against anything. Yet they always pulled those things out.

"Hit them with a full phaser!!"
"No damage, sir."
"DAMMIT!!! I was sure it would work this time!"

Anyway -- that was MAJOR geek speak. Sorry about that.

Yes, where were we. Fox sucks! Yes. I remember now.

Deit Heimley said...

Hmmmmmm...

Well, I'd say that "Flop" is a rabbit's name. But saying you are a bunny is just wrong -- like Kern being a hedgehog. I could go with Hare -- A fox, a mongoose, and a hare walk into this bar ... sounds like the begining of a good joke.

Deit Heimley said...

OHHHH!! I just remembered that the sheriff is the bunny! It fits him because a bunny is almost his complete opposite. It's like naming the big guy tiny -- it's ironic.

But get this, a hare is not a bunny, but they are in the same family!!! Huh?? Huh?? That seems to fit right?

Am I thinking about this way too much?

Kern said...

Not at all.

I still like being a red tipped fox. Beaver eating...(Snicker)

FlopTheNuts said...

Flop = rabbit's/hare's name because of the ears?

I don't know... I like the coyote thing for the reasons I'd listed earlier. But, Sheriff is my Brother-In-Law, so me being Hare could go with brother Bunny. Maybe Deputy Hare? Ugh.

Deit Heimley said...

Sheriff Deputy Flop the Nuts

Hmmmmmmm....

Heather Locklear's body with the head of Wile E. Coyote?? Humorous possibilities there.

Kern said...

Indeed. I'll get to work on that...
