squirrel dry humping

This evening I intended to watch Kid Nation, because I have been waiting for it with anticipation.

However, I made plans with my friend Aron, whom I have not seen for a very long time.

So, around 7:00 tonight, I grabbed Laura and we went on a hunt throughout the office to find a blank video cassette so we could tape the show while I went out with Aron.

This led to many conversations in which I was asked, "Don't you have a DVR?" and I had to say no. (Note to Alison: Get a DVR.)


Anyway, Laura and I went hunting for a videotape.



Jon tried to help, but he didn't have anything.

Zak had nothing.

But then Laura remembered where we might find a videotape.

I set up the VCR to tape the show and went along my merry way with Aron.

We had a conversation about dry humping squirrels (squirrels that dry hump each other, to be perfectly clear), although neither of us could remember how that started.

And we had steak and potatoes and asparagus at Sam and Harry's, where the bartender, Sean, remembered my drink (Laphroaig) and my name and pointed out that I was not with my regular compadre.

(That would be Steve. There are no pictures of Steve because he is supernatural.)


Rory sent me an email during dinner to tell me he had burned me a DVD of the show


and Kaitlyn sent a message saying that the show was questionable


Nevertheless, Aron and I went back to the office to grab the video

Only to discover that, despite the fact that I had written a post-it that said


DON'T TURN OFF TV

someone had, in fact, turned off the TV.

So, now I have about 45 minutes of the show, which I am going to watch this evening, instead of the two DVDs from Netflix of Season Six of Homicide.


And then tomorrow night I will watch the rest (thanks to Rory) and all will be restored to normal.

Have I mentioned that I bought a new camera (that I am still trying to figure out)?

Love this post.

How much of a freak am I, scanning my Bloglines before I leave for the airport in total darkness?

A freak after my own heart.

I watched about half (it was DVRed). You're in for a real treat.

Okay, first you don't have written authorization to use my photo. I am a member of SAG and will need payment of one meeeeellion dollars.

Second, I watched about 10 minutes of Kid Nation last night (absolutely nothing else on). Seriously, who sends their eight year old to the middle of a desert with a bunch of strangers? I called the Department of Child Services.

You'll get your check, Jon.
