    Greg and Beth

    the political and personal musings of two
    mountaineers living in west-central Florida
     
    Spider of Jones Ave Free Time
    Gregory Morris, 9/21/03 10:47:10 pm
    So today, I played with my dog the whole day. Watched some of the Emmys, which sucked this year, except for John Stewart. Penny agrees.

    Watched part of survivor. Tired of reality TV. Even the good channels, like TLC are doing them now. *looks longingly up to the sky with clenched fists* "When will this miserable fad end!"

    Granted, some of the less popular ones are just fine... Trading Spaces, While You Were Out, etc. But these major network ones can take a big ol' collective flying fuck at a rolling donut. My rule is, I will watch them until I hear certain phrases, then the TV goes back to the Discovery Wings Channel. Here is a partial list of those phrases:
    "back stabbing"
    "you slept with him?"
    "whatever! (with the hand waving thing)"
    "he's the weakest link"
    "one hundred and ten percent"
    ...
    And anyone on a "diary" cam explaining to the world in such a matter-of-fact way something that nobody with half a brain gives a shit about.

    Yesterday we went up to Scottdale, PA... its such a quaint little place... town fair... Amish people... small town band playing in the town center... good old fashioned wholesomeness, visually broken up by a group of about five psuedo-gothic-punky-alternative-somethingrathers. If there is a single town in America (outside of Wisconsin and Nebraska) where that much black clothing, facial peircings, etc, are out of place, it is Scottdale. We all just about fell over laughing. I bet they have hardcore punk music shows in someones garage, with a few thirteen-year-olds who just started playing guitar two months ago when they bought the latest marilyn manson CD off the internet (can't get it at Walmart.)

    So yeah, its nice to be able to find humor in lifes little situations.

    Oh yeah, and there is a really cool spider on my front porch with a huge elaborate web. :)

    wait, you let penny out of the basement?
    Re: Re: Spider of Jones Ave
    name, 9/22/03 8:48:05 am
    Yes she is being much better now. And Greg there are no AMISH in Scottdale!!! There are a few Minonites, but not the kind that dress in funky clothes. Just the ones who do it as a religion. Dork the Amish are in lancaster,PA.
    Re: Spider of Jones Ave
    Gregory Morris, 9/22/03 11:22:02 am
    Uh huh. I saw some. I'm sure they can make it to Scottdale from Lancaster in under a week with a horse/buggy.

    And there are Amish people in more places than Lancaster... just because they concentrate there doesn't mean thats where they all are... Like, I'm sure there are non-mormons in Utah...

    And penny can only wander around the house when we are there, because she likes to find stuff to put in her mouth that doesn't belong there. And we also don't let her run around when we have company, because she pees on the floor and bites people. Once we have her bladder sewn shut, and her teeth filed off, it'll be ok for her to hang out upstairs with people.
    Re: Re: Spider of Jones Ave
    monica, 9/22/03 12:19:02 pm
    yeah, she even bites nice people, like todd and hank. you should train her to only bite mean people.
    Re: Re: Spider of Jones Ave
    joe, 9/22/03 12:19:58 pm
    i can help you with the whole filing of teeth thing.

    Greg... You are weird... :) By the way, Survivor rocks... If I could take a month off from work and apply to go, I would... and I would win too... those people are so dumb... they make people mad too early... I have my strategy! :)

    By the way, your website is quite impressive... wanna make me one? Pet Penny for me!

    ok, so my name didn't show up above... that's what I get for being computer illiterate.

    also a bad sign - naked fat men.
    while its ok at a wvu tailgating party, if its on network tv, its gonna suck.
