"Crying Hard as Babes could Cry..." Labyrinth ♥ from Masterminds

I watched the movie Labyrinth yesterday and was reminded of an awesome quote from a REAL conversation, a friend of mine (masterminds) had with her Mom. I just...HAD to share. It's a few months old, I spent ALL NIGHT searching for it.

(From This Post)

me: you remind me of the babe.
my mom: what babe?
me: the babe with the POWER.
my mom: what power?
me: the power of voodoo!
my mom: who do?
me: you do!
my mom: do what?
me: remind me of the babe.


My mom has never seen labyrinth before, she's just really deaf and clueless."

You won’t have to worry about your geek flirting with other women

pipedreamergrey said in geeksaresexy:

You won’t have to worry about him flirting with other women because, 9 out of 10 times, he’ll zip right by them in a perfect b-line towards the nearest electronics store. I’ve seen this happen.
Me: “Eww. Victoria Secret’s Models... They’re so skinny. How is that feminine? You can see her ribs!”
Geek Guy: “ooooooo...”
Me: “Hey!” *notices he is staring lustfully towards the computer store*
Geek Guy: “What?”
Me: “Never mind...”

-- listened to a student decide his superhero graphic novel would be about a rapper who also does the human beat box thing. "The climax will be just like 'You Got Served', but instead of a dance-off, they'll have a beat-off!" Sometimes it's all I can do not to scream with laughter."

Election 2005. Well, sort of..

heyjudas knows how the General Election could be won -

Here's my suggestion for a vote winner -

"Every citizen shall have the right, without redress, to leave their house with a sled hammer and pulverise the living crap out of any car that wakes them up at 4am with it's faulty alarm two nights running"

Gods, that would be good. There can't be a person in the country who'd disagree with that.

For those of you who've been living under a rock, ellielabelle has been posting a fascinating and hilarious Brief Brief History of Time over the last few weeks. A few quotes have showed up here, but it's now complete and I'd encourage anyone who hasn't read it to race over there and guzzle it down.

The link goes to Chapter Ten (the final chapter) and includes links to all previous chapters.

evil_authoress explains the meaning of the "tl;dr" acronym (Too long; didn't read) to pyrephox, and, when thanked, brings on the giggles:

evil_authoress: Any time, any time. :) The internet is rife with acronyms that just look like someone accidentally elbowed their keyboard.

thesaneminority: Heh. You know, I should "accidentally" elbow my keyboard and make an acronym out of what comes out.

mjki -- Um.... Must Jerk Kicking Icecream... That works, right?

evil_authoress: It'll be the newest craze! I heartily approve.

gthing writes a letter to the Denver Mattress Company looking for employment as a "mattress tester." Post is here.

Best part:

By having a lead tester, like myself, you would be able to advertise that these mattresses have been tested and approved by someone with over 70,000 hours of experience in the field. In the commercial, I could have on a lab coat and be holding a clip board. Also, I think it would be good if I had some thick rimmed glasses, as those tend to make people look smarter. I would not be able to wear the glasses while sleeping though, or I will wake up with a sore nose.

Edallia's home-buying saga.

Can be read here:

Teaser: August in Georgia is a dismal, bleak wasteland of muggy weather, smothered greenery, and cats, dogs and girlfriend all staring at me with sad eyes, panting.

Edallia's sister ran through 7 losers in 7 months


Teaser: [Sister] had a lengthy relationship, culminating in brief engagement, with the infamous "Special D," who not only set a world record for stretching of an umbilical cord without having it snap back in his face, not to mention the world record for most rapid acquisition of a beer belly, but also managed to infect her computer with virtual VD after a botched attempt to download the Paris Hilton sex video.

It took me two reads to get it.

Which was possibly due to lack of caffeine in my blood at that time. It is witty, anyway. dglenn has a skin condition, but arcane lore will help:

I have a funny rash high on my left arm. Fortunately, I've heard of a ritual that's supposed to make it go away, involving a towel, a metal talisman, and an annoyed cat. I just need to obtain the talisman (and ideally have someone demonstrate its correct use).

Of course, I'll need to perform this ritual again each time the sharp parts of the cat grow back, but I'm confident that it will clear up this skin condition.

'...what can I buy for 41 cents?'

horseforest works at McDonald's. Apparently yesterday she dealt with some weird customers. From a friends-locked entry, quoted with permission:

middle aged lady with daughter:
'can you just give me a little bit of ice cream? like hardly any, for free, so i can put it on my apple pies?'

middle aged business man in pink shirt and patterned tie:
'what's the healthiest thing you have here?'
'salads.. the fruit and walnut one is good'
'ok.. can i have that... covered in ice cream?'
'are you serious?'

There were others, but these are the best ones.

I had to laugh

I'm sure they do it on purpose...
My friend from Cork, asked me today whether I watched the football last night, the Champions League semi-final, Chelsea vs. Liverpool.

I said quickly - "Don't tell me the result because I've only watched half of it."

He replied, "Which half?"

I reckon Eire's tourist board must allot quotas to all their ex-pats, to keep up the national image of whackiness.

The ever-quotable scott_lynch, suffering from the aftermath of a migraine, sleep deprivation, and recovery from passing his firefighter's exam, now is rather cranky because his novel is under a deadline which is breathing down his neck:

I'm also not going to start bitching about George R.R. Martin. The bastard crept into my house while I was sleeping, opened my manuscript in Word, and changed some of the nouns around so that they closely resembled some of his own nouns from the Song of Ice and Fire sequence. I'm onto him, though. I got rid of 'em and replaced them with new nouns. And if it took a few long boring hours to do so, well, it's his fault. Not mine. Honest.
