Happy Monday

So thanks to those of you who showed up last night to listen to two dudes blather about baseball for an hour on Just Talking to the Cornfield.  Honestly, Peter (the Colonel) and I would probably do it anyway, but it's nice that you kids showed up and told dirty jokes to each other in the chat room.  Made my little heart burst with pride.  It's usually ME making with the dirty jokes in the chat room.

And a special shout-out to my buddy Slyde for showing up.  Oh wait...he didn't.


So I made dinner for my mother this past weekend.  Made a kick-ass salad that I cannibalized from one of RW's recipes and then one of my pasta dishes.  You know...the one with cherry tomatoes, fresh basil, garlic-infused olive oil and crispy pancetta.  It...was...awesome!

Those CBS Cares "hilarious" public service ads about getting a colonoscopy are just...creepy.

I do not like.

Tomorrow, I'm going to get back on my comic-book reviews from the 1970's. I know I promised that it was gonna be the first Monday of every month, but I'll get to it a day late. Back off, bitches.

That's it. I'm outta here.

Happy Monday!
The chat room was so dirty. I like it. Also, I learned Saltalamacchia - now that's a mouthful (that's what she said). :)

Now make Water Logged Canine start an effing blog, too. Come on, you wet bitch! Geez.

sybil law said...

Oh yeah - and Slyde. WTF? Dude, that's the second time he's flaked. No BJ's for Slyde.

Water Logged Canine said...

Kudos to Earl and the Colonel! Congratulations and welcome to the world of sports-talk! I think you guys are on to something here.

I vow to send actual baseball fans your way and will do my modest part to spread the word. If I'm even half as successful as I am at spreading the legs of guys will only be as popular as Howard Stern. No big deal. You're welcome. Or should I say "your" welcome? Shout out Sybil.

Speaking of Ms. Law...blogs intimidate me...but I'm warming to the idea. Y'all are my'll get there.

Sorry about the midget thing. They're little people. And they love spreading their tiny legs for me.

Monday already? Whit the feck happened to Sunday? Damn that Talisker.

Slyde said...

and an EXTRA special shout out for 2 hosts who don't even bother to read their own fucking chatroom!

i was there, ya asshat. didnt ya even CHECK the chatroom after the podcast (cause ya sure as shit didnt check it DURING...)

Verdant Earl said...

Jimmy - whisky happens...

Slyde - I had an eye on who was in the chat room the entire show. And a user named "Slyde" was never there. Were you "Guest3" that showed up briefly? If so, how long have you been on the Internet dude? You don't even know how to show up as a non-anonymous user? WTF?

hello haha narf said...

i had a very loud and drunken birthday party go rather late last night. apparently we are quite happy my uncle was born and felt the need to celebrate. anyhow, sorry i missed the show. and the chat room...i love dirty!

Verdant Earl said...

Becky - there is always next week.

Slyde said...

i was guest 6! i announced myself there and spoke to people and everything!

What kind of internet show hosts dont actually read what people are asking in their internet show chat room?

I'll answer that.... SHITTY ones!

Verdant Earl said...

Slyde - You, sir...are a douche. I was paying attention. To registered users. I figured Guest 6 was just some dickwad. Turns out I was right. Learn how to use the Internet, dude.

Slyde said...

so ok.... you were paying attention to just the NAMES of the people in the chat room, but not WHAT THEY WERE SAYING?

who's the douche here?

i say, YOU SIR!

Verdant Earl said...

Slyde - This has been fun. Let's do this every Monday.

sybil law said...

Slyde, we said hi to each other and then nothing -I think you left or you were watching t.v or something. NO BJ FOR YOU!

sybil law said...

ALSO, Water Logged Canine, you need to get on that right now. Come ON - it's just a blog...

Water Logged Canine said...

Get on that? That's what she said!

Too soon?

I can vouch that Slyde was not only present, but he announced it by declaring that he was in the "HIZZOUSE."

Sorry Verdant Pubes. You need to concede. Point Slyde.

Slyde said...

thanks Canine.

i guess that there apparently WASNT so much text whizzing past the screen at a breakneck pace that people couldnt keep up with who was typing, after all.

wow, who would have thunk it?

I still want an amendment that saying that i was in FACT there, or im suing you for libel.

or slander.

oh fuck it, i always get those 2 confused.

Verdant Earl said...

Sybil and Doggie - There will be no siding with Slyde on this issue. Oh, and he emailed me that he "Sybil should know, we were talking for a while". I guess popping in for a minute and saying hello counts as
"talking for a while" for him. The libel/slander stays. :)

Slyde said...

this situation is not unlike someone throwing a party at their house and not showing up to their own party, only to have 20 people hanging around on your front lawn waiting for you to show up, and the next day blame everyone else for not coming.

Mrs. Hall said...

yeah. good times. it was like listening to a foreign movie without subtitles . . mariners . . . Seattle. . . i was totally fascinated by the sounds but didn't understand but a few words.

Then Mr. Hall comes down . . . after having been gone for four days on business . . . he just put the kids to bed and well . . . he sort of stood behind me . . . looking all sad.

wait, no, he was giving me the stink eye. saying, "You don't care about baseball! shut that thing off. I've been gone for four days!"

Then I shushed him away.. Then he came back around 20 minutes later and then I was OK fine . .

but. it was fun while it lasted!! :)

maybe you can talk about the brewers when I attend next time! (not next week but the next after that :)

Verdant Earl said...

Guest 6 - the situation is very much like showing up at the party dressed as someone else, saying hello, then leaving as quickly as possible. Then talking it up big. I know your deal, dude. But that's okay, I love ya anyways, snookum.

Holly - The Colonel is actually a huge Brewers fan, so I'm sure they will come up often.
