Another round of amusing exchanges.

To balance out the negativity of my previous post, I've been saving some of our more amusing conversation bits.

After seeing an ad for Madonna's upcoming appearance on The Tonight Show...
Me: Holy crap, what's wrong with her hair?
Himself: Angry curlers attacked her, foaming product at the mouth.

I pitched designing and installing a wall unit across the shorter length of wall in our room to hold the computers and some storage (art supplies, books, etc.). He listened, then helpfully offered: "I'll give your sketches a sanity check. Could I use the wire-grid shelves to hold my computer?"

This week's new episode of South Park really caught him off-guard since he doesn't get all the local jokes (he grew up closer in to Denver).
Himself: So there's a lot of Mormons up here?
Me: I guess. They have a building down towards Marshdale.
Himself: Holy shit! There's definitely a lot, then.
Me: Actually, I only knew one Mormon when I went to Evergreen.
Himself: Really?
Me: Yeah. She got caught in intimate moments with her boyfriend a few times. I knew a lot more Mormons at D'Evelyn, though.
Himself: Well, you'd expect that. They're attracted to meritocracy.
Me: I just thought it was because there were so many D-- kids.

One of my favorite things to do after picking groceries up at Safeway is riding the cart out to the car because the parking lot has a pretty good pitch and their carts have a bar at the right height for riding. I didn't realize the half-drunk guy that checked out ahead of us was still in the parking lot, and as I hopped off the cart to unload, he pulled up next to us and yelled "Go, Speed Racer!" He then sat there with his lights on our car while we unloaded (there wasn't a light near us, but it's not a big deal up here) and as he got into the car, Himself asked, "Do you think he did that so he could look at your ass?"

*droooooool*
*makes mad monkey love to the cabinet sketching part of her brain*
*after the post coital cigarrette, steals the design plans for his own room, doesn't call*

Oh, and Mormons. Feh. The only Mormon I know almost got caught pants off in a Festiva by the coppers. it became an injoke for sexins. "Dude, did ya, you know, pants off in a Festiva?"

I was serious about Himself needing to do a "sanity check" for the wall unit sketch. I need to acquire more structural/furniture-building knowledge to be competent. On the other hand, he knows to stay away from the mural pastels (I'm working on a 40x8' undersea mural in my sister's room( and anything else that looks like a non-structural sketch.

*snerk* The one Mormon I knew in school that I'm still in touch with works at a Radio Shack. Every so often he writes me an e-mail about how much he dislikes working there.

There really ARE a lot of Mormons in Colorado... they got lost on the way to Utah and no one else would take them.

I worked with a bunch of them up there, but not a single one here...

And, OF COURSE he did that so he could stare at your ass. What, you don't think he was GAY, do you? LOL Let's face it, only a gay guy would NOT want to look at your ass.

I figured it was so they could take over the local Boy Scout council. Did you know that BYU now offers a major in Scouting?

I'm getting re-used to people looking at me that way, so it was just a bit awkward for me. In North Carolina, I looked like a tall, underfed 8-year-old the way the locals bust out.

Adding to my confusion, "Go, Speed Racer!" reminds me of a remix of the theme we have that has a distinctly sexual-sounding section in the middle.

I didn't know that, but it doesn't surprise me. I see they call it "Recreation Management and Youth Leadership." That's a mouthful. OMFG... At this link (it's big, sorry about that) is the index entry "Semesters Offered. See Using This Catalog." ROFLMFAO (I suspect it's just a coincidence, as that's the title of the page, but it's still funny as heck -- especially since the entry right above it does NOT!)

A tall, underfed 8-year-old? Well, but at least you're married like all the other 8-year-olds in NC.

I've heard that remix, actually, I like it! :) The first time I heard it at a club I woke up the next morning thinking I should give up alcohol forever because it just ain't NATURAL to have those kind of auditory hallucinations... LOL
