You are only young once. After that you have to think up some other excuse.

She should have very fine (invisible) elastic netting.  Then when they lob the trash up there it bounces back down and lands on their heads!  Bonus if their trash contained partially used packets of ketchup or mustard!   >:D

Anyone else thinking of the arena barrier from the Hunger Games right now?

Ladyknight1, did they ever give you a bunch of static about having to get up and move, or did they do it immediately?  I'm just curious.  :)

The first time, they acted all offended before packing up their stuff and moving on. Seems pickup truck beds make great picnic areas. The second and third times, we had to call the police.

Wait a minute...you were forced to call the police because the Speshul Snowflakes refused to get out of your truck bed?!

I know, how bizarre!! Ladyknight1, what did they say to you? How were they trying to justify themselves? I just can't comprehend this.

They were speaking Portuguese with a small amount of broken English and didn't say too much, once we finally got them to get out. I just kept saying, "Get out, what are you doing there?".

Yesterday afternoon, DH, DS and I were driving down a six lane divided road near our home.

------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------
                              divider                                    divider
------------------------------------------------------
_______________white car________________
_____________us_____gold car____________
------------------------------------------------------

See that space between the divider? That is where the SS gold car decided to make a u-turn, by crossing in front of the white car then into the median. The white car responded by moving into our lane. DH was driving and moved us over to keep from being struck, but we almost rolled.

We see horrible driving like this all the time, and this SS nearly cost us our health and lives.

The DVD is released in the UK in November, not sure if it'll air in the states as it's not being made by the BBC.

Coolness! I just googled it and it is all the original cast.

I don't know about everywhere else in the world but here in NZ to be a TV programmer you have to be lobotomised or have suffered a severe brain injury before they give you a job as it was on at something stupid like 1am on a Monday morning. That seems to be the slot they use for any decent shows while they fill the rest with dross.

Don't even get me started on the Australian ones (especially Channel 7). Brand new Castle, brand new Amazing Race, and as far as I can tell NO air date in remote sight.  >:( Yet they get very cranky indeed if you download stuff off the internet. Apparently we're all supposed to wait very patiently until they deign to share things with us, on some timetable of their own.  >:( >:( >:(

It actually strikes me as a little SS to suggest that just because shows *you* like aren't mainstream that the TV programmers have got it wrong.   I know a couple of people who work for TVNZ and they're typically hard working, quite underpaid (only the talent and execs get the big $) and are just trying to do their job and meet the requirements of their bosses, advertisers and public demand.   I do happen to loathe some of the shows that are popular these days, but other people like them.  And I know there are shows I love that others detest.  It's not all about me.

Also, I'm sure that several of my wonderful clients who have suffered TBI / ABI would be delighted to know that you consider them suitable for a career in the TV industry. Considering the struggles they have in their daily lives to hold down jobs due to issues with memory, anxiety, and other psychosocial  impact, and the stress their injury causes to themselves and their loved ones.     I'm afraid using TBI as an insult - as you have done here - is no more appropriate than using the "*******" word as an insult, or mocking any other kind of disability.
