Blog Block

I'm having a bit of blog block today.

That or I have plenty to say, just no time to say it. I can't decide.

So instead of my usual lengthy post about nothing and everything... Here are three conversations for your amusement.

Daily Hoop Conversation:
(While watching the
Visa Check Card commercial about the missing pot of gold)
Tink: Is it the gold or the pot that makes the rainbow?
Hoop: I have no idea.
Tink: Because I always thought it was the gold. And if that's the case, shouldn't the rainbow lead people to the bank now?
Hoop: I think it's the Leprechaun that makes the rainbow.
Tink: Ohhh. So that's just a diversion rainbow!

Daily Hoop Conversation 2:
Hoop: You know how our waitress at TGIFridays said they're hurting for lunch business?
Tink: Yeah, why is that you think?
Hoop: Probably because there aren't any corporations around there.
Tink: True.
Hoop: Well, I was thinking. They should start marketing to all the old people in town.
Tink: Not bad. They don't work. So they wouldn't have to worry about time or travel restrictions.
Hoop: Easy-chew lunches!
Tink: *Blink* What?
Hoop: That could be their marketing strategy.

Daily Hoop Conversation 3:
Hoop: Look, a rainbow.
Tink: Ooo that's pretty.
Tink: You know I have nothing against homosexuality.
Hoop: Me either.
Tink: I've had a lot of gay friends over the years.
Hoop: What are you getting at here babe?
Tink: It's just... I really wish they hadn't stolen the rainbow!
Hoop: *Snort*
Tink: I like rainbows. I might even have put one on my car. But I can't now.
Hoop: You would totally get hit on.
Tink: A rainbow isn't just a rainbow anymore.

Oh no - that now puts a whole different spin on 'taste the rainbow'...

I so feel the same way about rainbows, and the color purple too! :)

This is just a hunch, but perhaps TGI Fridays is hurting for business due to their recent commitment to deep fry EVERYTHING including green beans and macaroni. All their customers are dropping dead from massive coronaries.

MrsPao: Oh man, that's FUNNY. Why didn't Hoop and I think of that one? :D

TB: Those deep fried green beans look nasty. What cracks me up is that everyone else is getting in on the health food kick... and here's TGIFridays, going for more grease. Bleh.

"Easy chew food" ... *snort* yea, that will get them in. How bout over-sized menus with HUGE font to make them easier to read for the old folks too. And waiters that yell at the customers CAUSE THEY CAN'T HEAR too good either. And instead of a blue plate special it would be the "casket nappers" special. I could go on all day.

Gays have stolen the rainbow and Republicans have stolen the American Flag.

Blogger block sucks. That's about all I can think of to say. ;)

Snort*** I have water out the nose, thanks to EVERYONE! Sheesh, Tink is bad enough but the comments***geez people. I need a little dignity here at work. Awww hell, who am I kidding, I work in the bat cave.

I guess that is like the spin ring I saw on ebay that had rainbow gem stones in it. And they called it the lesbian spin ring. I still want it. I'll just call it my goes with everything / support gay pride ring. I don't know. I think a rainbow still is just a rainbow. No matter why you have it it is a good symbol. Of course Tink, if you had your Unicorn next to the rainbow you would be okay.

Easy-chew food - *holds back lunch* gross! Although, I could see things like spanakopita slurry, hamburger bisque, garden salad gumbo, breakfast broth, and cheeseburger chowder being big hits with the over 75 crowd.

You two are priceless. Like Ricky & Lucy, but way better!!!! And without the salsa.

Jay: Hey Jay, you want to open a marketing company with Hoop and me? Then you could move to Florida, and DRINK on the beach. The only problem is... we pay in peanuts.

Mama T: They can keep the triangle. Much too pointy for my tastes. I'm a round kind of person.

OddMix: That pretty much sums it up.

Newt: "Of course Tink, if you had your Unicorn next to the rainbow you would be okay." No, then I'd be twelve.

I'm all for the multicolored spin ring. Those spin rings are awesome. Much better than the pinwheel on a ring I first imagined.

Chris: *Hands Chris the mic*

FA: Jay can be on the marketing team and you can be head of projects!! This company is either going to make millions or run itself into the ground on the first day.

Jess: We're like the new-age version. Which basically means, "Less tasteful." he he

I miss rainbows, too! I used to have a rainbow patch on my jeans when I was a kid. If my kids did that, everyone would think it was some kind of statement.

Does that mean the Muppets are gay now? You know, with their Rainbow Connection?

Rainbows don't make me think of Gay Pride as much as they remind me of Care Bears...and God knows I can't stand a Care Bear.

My daughter had a Rainbow Brite doll. I think it's still downstairs in a box somewhere. It lived a short shelf life. I don't mind the rainbow thing so much as losing the American flag.

WHAT?!??! THERE'S POT AT THE END OF THE RAINBOW?!?!?! That is SO NOT what my daddy told me. :)

Arabella: I think kids below the age of 7 are safe to wear rainbows. It's about age 8 that they start caring what people think.

KTP: No, but maybe they need to start representing. I mean, Sesame Street has Bert and Ernie! ;)

Wordgirl: I could never figure out how "Care Bear STARE" made beams of light come out of their stomachs. Shouldn't it have been their eyes?

Gawilli: Rainbow Brite was cool. Strawberry Shortcake kind of freaked me out. Especially when all my little girlfriends would walk around sniffing their dolls' heads.

Freakazojd: Alright I'll bite. What exactly did your Dad tell you was at the end of the rainbow?

"A rainbow just isn't a rainbow anymore" ....SNORT!!!!
