Craig said... Did you just say, 'uber-groovy'?? . . .'a toe at very strange angles'?
Yes, I did indeed say "uber-groovy." I know that may seem like a strange turn of phrase but I am given to such things. Other verbal oddities I use with frequency include, but are not limited to: nifty, snazzy, holy moses on a pogo stick, crappalappadingdong, and bite me.
As for the toe in question, it seemed to be rotated at the joint so that the toenail no longer faced skyward but rather inward toward the next toe.
Jazz said...Could the bear have stolen the venison perhaps?
Only if the bear had been able to operate the garage door opener then remove the bungee cord from the ancient freezer in the garage which keeps the freezer door closed. Additionally, the bear would need the manual dexterity to open the door to Gracie the Minivan, turn the key in the ignition, and shift into reverse in order to back the van up far enough to allow the door to the ancient freezer to swing open. I've known some darned resourceful bears but the likelihood of that skillset being possessed by even an above average example of Ursus americanus strains credulity just a bit.
jinksy said... If I told you I'd hit 69 and indulged in a week of torrid telephone sex, which of the two statements would you believe?!
I'd want to hear more, you randy thing!
furiousBall said...i bet the bear won the laser tag game
He was given great odds even though he couldn't work the lasers.
Suldog said...Oh, please tell me that you're going to expound on a few of these during the coming days. I'm way curious!
I did not participate in the all-night laser tag debacle. I value you my sleep more than that. The day old bread came from Calypso's boyfriend, who works in a grocery store. More to come on the foot in a moment. Calypso had the close encounter of the bear kind when showing aforementioned boyfriend the door one evening. Perhaps you heard the screaming? Calypso and I both enjoyed the film festival, which featured a series of shorts 9 out of 10 were phenomenal. If 3 members of the House of Lime kill 6 deer during deer season and one 150 lb deer can feed our family for roughly 9 months and I have to ask Mr. Lime for 3 months to please bring meat home from the friend's house where the bulk of said venison is being stored and I finally give up in frustration, drive there myself and I am told it's almost all gone I begin to get curious as to the whereabouts of such a massive quantity of venison. I'd tell you more about the official reports but then I'd have to kill you. Gorgeous weather=happy Lime. Go see
Cricket said... I'll trade my list for yours, except maybe the broken toe. The weekend here at the House O' Quills featured a four-pronged attack of dysentery.
My sincerest condolences.
Gledwood said...sounds well entertaining..!
Craver Vii said... Me?
Yes, you. Do you have something to share with the class, Mr. Craver? Pay attention now. I just posed a word question to Mr. Suldog up there and he was too busy propositioning Jinksy to pay attention and explain how 6 deer weighing an average of 150 lbs. could have been consumed in merely 4 months. Please come to the board and work out the problem for the class.
S said... Sounds like a lot of fun was had!Especially the bag of day old bread, thats super exciting!
A whole lot more fun than the migraine I've been fighting.
coopernicus said... who has the smooshed toes???
That would be Mr. Lime. He was an all night laser tag participant running around like a junior high kid until his toe forcefully met an unyielding surface resulting in a shattered end of his phalange and a damaged tendon which may require surgery if it doesn't heal up like a good little tendon. Given his disinclination to follow doctor's orders my odds are on surgery.
Moannie said... That is a good ten years worth of goings on.
Maybe that explains why I feel a decade older this morning.
g-man said...Does a bear shit on Trini's front porch?
No, it still shits in the woods. However, Calypso could wet herself just a little in the foyer when she opens the front door and unexpectedly finds the bear.
Cocotte said...Were you drinking again, Lime?
Not nearly enough, though I did enjoy a truly lovely bottle of Louis Roederer Brut Premier Champagne with friends while Mr. Lime was busy demolishing his big toe. I think I had the better evening.
Phyllis Renée said... I loved
No, I saw it in 4D, complete with smellavision. Ok, ok, I saw it in 2D. I'm too vain to wear the glasses. when they distribute 3D contact lenses I'll consider it.
