She's the one in black.

Is Plink, the ocelot in there as well?

Jennifer said...

I think I forgot my second comma... I think Plink ate it.

My verification word is "berpsid"... which is what Plink did after snarfing my comma...

Is that a tent rainfly or one of those lightweight hammocks?

Good core exercise.

Very nice, Batman.

You're right about the exercise. It's not cut to be anything as fancy as a hammock: it's just a square of spandex.

J— said...

Spandex, even better. It's like trying to move around on a huge resistance band.

Righteous Bubba said...

You stick things up high inside with velcro and she has to reach for 'em. Struggle in video above.

J— said...

That is cool.

herr doktor bimler said...

PiƱatas -- she's doing it wrong.

You stuck the dessert in there with velcro?

I don't think Burt approves of this.

Righteous Bubba said...

It the toffee isn't sticky it doesn't work so well.

herr doktor bimler said...

Plink the ocelot?! I am unaware of this internet tradition.

But when Plink the Ocelot gets here,
Ev'rybody's gonna jump for joy...

Righteous Bubba said...

The whole of the Plink the ocelot saga is here.

herr doktor bimler said...

Thank you.
If Plink the Ocelot behaved in risk-taking, life-dangering ways, it would be a Jeopard.

Righteous Bubba said...

It's the "screwdriver hitting a door" aspect that seems to be the important one.

In a conversation that started out with a question about which artists are dead - plenty I'll have you know - we got on to Vincent Van Gogh and his ear and thence to cruel medieval punishments kings could inflict (I know - shut up about it). Then -

Daughter: Kings could chop off your hinges!
Me: People don't have hinges.
Daughter: I think people who are doors have hinges and go SQUEAK SQUEAK.

herr doktor bimler said...

Me: People don't have hinges.
I hold to the view that "hinges" is the plural of a normal 3rd-declension noun so if you had only one of them, it would be a hinx.

Jennifer said...

People don't have hinges.

Then how do we become unhinged?

Righteous Bubba said...

I should ask her about that. I found the Riverside Shakespeare on her bed this morning.

Righteous Bubba said...

Then how do we become unhinged?

Someone puts poison in their dad's ear.

Must order door locks.

herr doktor bimler said...

I suggest removing the pages from the Riverside Shakespeare that contain Titus Andronicus. Also, I am concerned about the breakdown in the time-space continuum between 3/01/2009 12:14:00 and 10:14:00 AM. Was it a glitch in the Matrix?

Exit, pursued by a bear.

Another Kiwi said...

Herr Dr, you was posting from before in the future.
Ask your capcha Dr if Precocen is right for you.

herr doktor bimler said...

Capcha is sending us messages from a future where the English language has evolved so far that most of the words are unknown to us.
Right now it says 'embow'.

Mendacious D said...

I have "oveledef" which I think describes the situation perfectly.

Also, Hinx is a town in the Aquitaine region of France. It would not, I think, appreciate a pluralisation.

Another Kiwi said...

What is one called if one is a native of Hinx, a Hinxophone?

"Learn to play the Hinxophone, drink scotch whiskey all night long, and die behind the wheel."

Mendacious D said...

One can only hope.

I imagine it's something more mundane, like "Hinxain."
