Since when am I The Beth?
Jenn's called you that since I've known her
And the number one reason why Evolution is AWESOME ...
Herders used those goats to protect their flocks. If you have lots of valuable livestock who are being hunted by a predator, putting a "scape goat" in the bunch will give the predator something to catch while the most valuable animals get away.
Makes sense to me!
Stackpole, do you remember the Honourless Goats threads from a few years back?
Lol I do indeed.
I leave for one weekend and we gain fainting goats?!
I need a little advice. I recently saw a movie on TV - Bring It On: All or Nothing - which is a sequel to the Kristin Dunst movie. Now, I would like to add this movie to my DVD collection. However, if I go to Walmart and buy this along with my weekly dose of Star Wars/Sci-Fi stuff, they are likely to look at the combination and immediately have me carted off to the nut house.
Any thoughts on how to add this movie to my collection without the inevitable fallout? I was thinking that I would buy it and go to the cashier with a shopping list and declare: "OH, my....I hope I have the right movie for my little sister Molly who wants to be a cheerleader when she is older (Molly is my Dog, I suppose I will have to leave that bit of intell. out). Oh, my, I hope this is right!"
Was that movie any good?
Just go Wallyworld and buy a bunch of stuff and go to the long lines in teh front and bury under the papertowels and frozen pizzas and case of beer and be looking for your debit card or digging out your cash whenever it is scanned - or walk over to the soda cooler and grab an RC as it is scanned.
Was it any good!? Like, totally yeah it was rad!!
I probably will do the fumble for cash as I do not use debit cards (I hate them). I only use them at the ATM (which I hate slightly less except in the summer when I hate them worse.
I also hate computers and numbers.
But not Bring it On, which I like.
I'm also startin to like dancing with the stars - especially the chick from Lingo.
Side bar: A Star Wars/Star Trek themed Dancing with the stars!
So how do you buy this movie without people thinking its weird? Easy, buy a whole bunch of other even more strange and awkward stuff!
Go to the counter with a box of girly products, some hemorrhoid cream, condoms, and anything else you wouldn't want to buy. Then, they are so focused on that, they don't even realize you were buying the DVDs!
Or, just buy a Sports Illustrated and it will cancel out. Its like eating chocolate with Diet Coke. It all cancels out in the end.
(wonders if Cole speaks with the voice of experience... )
Wow, that's a plan! I recommend ordering it online.
I recommend getting GOOD TASTE
I mean SERIOUSLY, Star Trek, no more BSG, BRING IT ON SEQUELS!?
I cannot forgive you for this
Erdic, my dear, I do believe that you seriously need to get out more.
Oh well, we all have our guilty pleasures.
to be completly honest, it's not like you're ever gonna see the person at the regester again...and I highly doubt that they will either a) pay attention to what they are checking out for you b) think its for you anyways, or c) care. lol.
if you want to buy it, buy it. don't let something silly like pride get in the way
I don't know... I always get the little old lady commenting on everything she scans: "OH this looks good", "I didn't know we carried these", "WHere'd you'd find this? I need one", "Oh I use this for my rashes. Is that why you bought it?"...
Good ideas all.
I will stick to my first plan. Buy it and not give a flying (you fill in the blank) what anyone thinks!
Regardless of your 'ORRIBLE TASTE!
I sell lots of people playboy and penthouse magazines, as well as similar ones. They're always nervous, they always prefer a male cashier.
Nobody I work with cares.
(Although I personally enjoy watching them squirm as I ask if they have a borders rewards card, or if they happen to get a customer service survey and I can explain it to them, keeping them there with their porn for several seconds longer )
The point is, I'd rather shout to the world that I'm buying seven boobie magazines than shout to the world that I'm buying Bring It On The Direct-To-DVD Sequel. So honestly, the cashier will joke about it with his fellows, and then forget completely about you
Jeez, after all these years, when will you people be able to tell when I am spinning a yarn just for the sake of a chuckle!? LOL
The only reason I watched the show was that it was the only thing on. Then, of course, compared to the latest BG effort I decided it was good TV? It's the same reason I enjoyed Dukes of Hazzard the Beginning!
Because it sucked?
Seriously, man! Look at what you're saying!
Wait! Are you saying you don't like cheerleaders! Its un-American! Its unnatural!
