  • Oh man! Crazy Bowling Monkey Mascot Tam has the croup. 🙁 Get better soon little Tam, so @Alyssin and @weedatheevil can get some sleep! #
  • So what character from all of Dr. Who history would you most like to make out with? #
  • My answer: Nyssa (Davison-era companion), followed by Amy Pond, the David Tennant Doctor, and then Sarah Jane Smith… #
  • And yes, Romana I (Mary Tamm) is my favorite companion, but I'm not sure I could stop at 2nd base with her!!! #

Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-11-21

  • Downloading Sherlock from the iTunes store! Wishing iTunes store was letting my 40MB internet do it's work! #
  • Interestingly, when I connect to the hardline instead of the wireless, went from 3 hr download for 3GB to 30 min. Hmmm… #
  • Forgot to mention the fabulous dinner that @Kim_Stone and I prepared – Garam Masala pork chops, coconut rice, and persimmon-jalapeno chutney #
  • And Sherlock was every bit as good as people said – maybe better since iTunes has the unedited BBC version. Treeeemendous! #
  • It's interesting to me that the IT nerds talk more about football than the business jocks…I wonder what it means… #
  • Realllly looking forward to getting a beer in a short bit. #
  • Playing team "young blue collar testosterone" at bowling tonight. Half their conversation has been about fights they got into this weekend. #
  • The other half of their conversation is an even split between grunts and weird wolf whistles. #
  • This team is like a Hallmark card of asses: sweats & tank ass, preppy sweater ass, asian beanie ass, and cowboy buckle & clip keyring ass. #
  • Totally scored a Tim White special in the first frame of game 2! ( -/ ) #

  • January tickets for @jonathancoulton purchased! #
  • Oh discarded half-full McCafe cup lying in the weeds along the Starbucks drivethru lane, you silently say so much. #
  • Sitting at the antediluvian bowling alley getting ready to do the Denver Invitational bowling tournament with @doycet and @weedatheevil ! #
  • Bowling Tourney Game 1: I was 7 pins over average! Team Total: 60+ pins under average. 🙁 #
  • Bowling Tourney Game 2: I was 5 pins over average! Team Total: 50+ pins under average. 🙁 #
  • I swear one of the guys on the lane next to us is Morgan Grimes from "Chuck"… #
  • Wrist…tiring…score…tanking… #
  • Bowling Tourney Game 3: I was 24 pins under average!. 🙁 Team Total: 90+ pins under average. 🙁 #
  • RT @Mrschibimom: @cyface Chibimom cure for 24 pins below average. He needs MORE SEX @Kim_Stone #
  • "Cpt. Spectacular, what are you spending your birthday money on?" "I dunno." Me: "Hookers & blow?" Simultaneously from K: "Whores & booze?" #

  • And now begins the process of wrangling the wife and 12yo to get ready to go to early Thanksgiving at the parents'. #holidaytraditions #
  • For me, it's looking like Black Friday is the day of brewing Christmas-spiced #homebrew using the brew-in-a-bag technique! #yay #

Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-11-14

  • Now the 12yo's are arguing over whether a particular song is Rhianna f/Lil' Wayne or Lil' Wayne f/ Rhianna. #MusicalPuzzlesofThe21stCentury #
  • I agree with @Kim_Stone that it's frustrating when there is a situation out there that you want to do something with but don't know how… #
  • In all seriousness, creating the 1986 playlist I just made took me through about 100 emotions remembering those songs / times. Mmmmm. #
  • And yes, @warrenlocke, my 1986 playlist does include DANGER ZONE! #
  • I'm hoping bowling gets out early tonight so I can go home and see if Q got my 40MB internet hooked up! #
  • I really really want to zig-a-zig-ah! #spicegirls #noshame #
  • If I don't make it home alive, it's because the other team killed me for failing my "use scoring interface" check…repeatedly! #
  • Bowling went so late we had a casualty! 🙁 – http://twitpic.com/357nsz #
  • Well, after some minor tweaks, my Qwest internet is running at 40MB! I haven't found a site yet that can run that fast tho. 🙂 #
  • Well, the poster app for ridiculously fast internet is definitely Google Earth so far. 🙂 #
  • Hoping that the fact that our neighborhood just lost power is because of a construction mishap and not someone crashing into a power box! #
  • Wow, picked the exaxt wrong time to hit the parking lot – 10 ppl in line to use the already slow parking payment machine! #
  • Wow, picked the exact wrong time to hit the parking lot – 10 ppl in line to use the already slow parking payment machine! #
  • RT @TheWalkingEye: This is almost as exciting as Rex Manning Day! (This is an Empire Records reference for you, @Kim_Stone)! #
  • Wow! This week's Castle was more like Die Hard than Agatha Christie! Tense!!!! #
  • Filling out this paper character sheet for #burningwheel feels waayyyy too trad! #
  • My #burningwheel character is 1 part Dr. Who, 1 part Temperance Brennan, and 1 part Colombo. #
  • Oh, and 1 part Giles. #
  • Happy birthday @Kim_Stone ! #
  • I love you @Kim_Stone ! #
  • Hi all! @Kim_Stone was without internet last night and she's in an all-day class today, so she'll be delayed in responding to all your love! #
  • I like interviewing these folks in Bangalore early in the morning – I'm sharp enough to catch subtleties, but not yet snarky from my day. 🙂 #
  • My new rule of brewing – taste a commercial beer of the style you are trying to make before making it! #
  • Just had a Kona Brewing Coffee Stout that tastes remarkably like the coffee stout I made and threw out. 😛 #
  • Getting to level 3 of phone support is like getting to level 3 of a brutal dungeon crawl. #
  • Look at @Kim_Stone in her opera finery! – http://twitpic.com/369y8o #
  • Intermission time! So much fabulous people watching! I love Denver – cowboy jeans and elegant gowns -side by side and wonderful! #
  • The lovely mushrooms with my duck made me think of fig… #
  • I loved the juxtaposition between the over-the-top falling in love circumstances and the utterly ordinary but devastating death in La Boheme #
  • "The truth is that I love her completely, but my life is killing her…the North Wind rushed through my squalid rooms and took her health" #
  • The Magnolia hotel is pretty but fricking freezing! #
  • HVAC in our room was dead! @Kim_Stone pranced into the elevator to the new room in a hotel robe and heels to the delight of other guests. 🙂 #
  • Nice slow morning, breakfast at Panzano, King Tut exhibit, and now at Falling Rock Taphouse enjoying a #RussianRiver Pliny the Elder….mmmm #
  • Now on to a fabulous rueben and a Bear Republic brewing Mach 10: http://bit.ly/cVxCuk #
  • Finally waking up after my beer and food binge knocked me into a delightful nap. Now awake and watching @mythbusters ! #
  • Just passed the Microsoft store at the mall. Not sure want to think other than "follower". #
  • RT @Mrschibimom: My husband won't let me keep a gun in the house, because he says I'll shoot him with it someday. [I feel the same way!] #

  • Now @Kim_Stone is trying to guide the 12yo's in selecting boba drinks. Too many choices for such young decision engines? We'll see! #
