This and that


Serge rented Bruno yesterday. I have been mildly curious about the film but not too excited since it kinda bombed at the box office and Borat didn't do very much for me. As it turned out, I nearly wet myself laughing over Bruno. Mind you, I cried laughing watching Jackass and Superbad, so my endorsement should carry a huge disclaimer - for immature viewers only. I liked it so much I'll probably buy a copy.

Another thing we're excited about is the new security theater while traveling. Apparently we are to be subject to 100% pat down searches and 100% carry on bag searches before boarding a plane to the states. I told Serge they were gonna pat down his hoo-ha and he didn't believe me. Then I read him the100% quote and he said, "Well I hope he's cute." They're probably much more excited however about the million tits they now get to feel up.

We're planning a pub crawl for New Year's eve. We're going to start at five of course and see how long we make it. One drink per pub. I have to come up with some more rules and challenges. I was thinking we have to accost at least one stranger per pub but I can't think of anything else at the moment. I'm trying to come up with a song too that we can sing to warn everyone of our drunkenness. Sure we'll be hungover the next day but so what, it'll be a whole new year!

Alrighty, this is a pretty standard boring post although you did get a gratuitous Georgie pic. The pet store gave us these little charcoal cookies (we were looking for the anti-poo-eating additive for his food) they suggested to stop him from turd snarfling. So far, they seem to be working though granted it's only been two days. Knocking on wood we are.

Okay, the 100% pat down? It's true. I flew back just from Austria to England last night, and got more action at the security point than I have in the past few year. Boobs, bum, bits... everything. Very official and all, but man, she could have least bought me a drink.

I LOVE GEORGIE.

I read that even though they go over every package and person boarding the plane, the packages and bundles going into the hold below in the planes belly are not checked at all. Here's a song to sing while drunk: 99 bottles of beer on the wall. Ed

God, if I wanted to get groped, I'd stay home. They should just make everyone fly in their underwear. It would give us all inspiration to lose extra weight when we take trips.

I want to see Bruno. I thought Borat was funny and I also have the sense of humor of a twelve year old boy.

Rebekah - Was that out in front of everyone? I would have a hard time with that.

Torn - pub crawl sounds fun! You're right - it's the new year, what the hell, you get to sleep the next day

I'm getting too old for those all night party sessions. I'll probably be fast asleep by the time the ball drops. Then again if I can sneak in a nap maybe I'll make it past 12.

Good luck with the charcoal cookies.

We're going to a New Year's Eve party that is from "6pm-10pm." So, apparently, no midnight rendevous for us. As for the airline security mess....ugh.

CoffeeDog said...

Oh great, new rules for flying. Me, being on the boyish side, the security folks have been flummoxed by me before! I can't wait!

CoffeeDog said...

Oh and regarding your pub crawl, drink one glass of water at each stop and your hangover might not be too bad.

I LOVED 'Superbad' No desire to see 'Bruno' though. I thought i was the only one who hated 'Borat'

Mark in DE said...

Bruno is in our Netflix queue too, since I enjoyed Borat, Jackass, and Superbad myself!

Our dog won't eat the charcoal cookies. I didn't think there even WAS an item she wouldn't eat, but now I know. Good luck.

The more I hear about air travel, the more likely I am to drive. Ugh.

Mel said...

I'm with Java on this. Especially since most TSA employees are pretty much the opposite of cute, courteous, or pleasant.

I thought Bruno was hilarious. Obnoxious, insulting and a little too long but hilarious just the same.
As for the security at the airport, my flight to Frankfurt was delayed by 90 minutes because 2 people had to be removed from the flight. The official story was that they did not have the required documentation which I would have thought would have been discovered before they got on the plane. Anyway, I don't think that we should complain too much since it took me 2 hours to clear immigration in Israel and I think that is pretty standard.

Apparently the 100 percent pat down is only international flights. I just flew and nobody seemed that interested in touching my hoo-ha at all. Of course, that is the story of my life.

The last time I was fondled was by my doctor, and at least she knows my name, phone number, and zodiac sign.
