That Moment When 8: Strange days stranger nights

My internet has been just absolute shite.

I had a whole thing typed up and accidentally closed the window.

Tmw,
Your draft didn’t get saved and you’d have to type it all up again!

:sob::coffin:🪦

TMW your mini space heater gives you a nice warm neck and face while the rest of you shivers…

Sure I’m not the only one who likes both in this motley group…

@norse900 Place it down lower so you’ll have a warm toasty ass and cold face :slight_smile: cuz isn’t there a saying ‘a warm ass makes for warm love ’? That’ll keep you sig oth happy if true.

Add: Or maybe it goes warm ass make warm love hotter?

Whatever

Generally I find having warm feet will make the rest of me feel warmer, I like a warm neck and feet and then everything else will be fine.

I made the mistake of searching on that and the only stuff that came up was porn :joy:
I don’t think that’s an idiom you heard lol

No, my time in the Infantry meant that a cold ass is normal. I don’t use any sort of heater in any vehicle seats, either. That’s just…not right…

lol, no, not in bed. I was in my enclosed porch ritual space with the windows on both ends and the ceiling fan on low to stave off carbon monoxide and smoke inhalation from candles and incense.

The heater is about the size of my head.

Tmw I bought tickets to slipknot. I’ve been wanting to see them since I was an angsity teenager. I asked my wife if she wanted to go with me. She just staired blankly back at me.

Hell’s Yeah! Bring a stone from the property and create a small servitor to store up that sweet, sweet energy!

Does she even know slipknot? I mean beyond just they exist? Has she ever heard them? Cuz a lot of people make judgements without knowing then would be blank and doing stunned blank face variant of that 70s sitcom’s “what you talking bout Willace?” Cuz they don’t get why you’re asking cuz their preconceived notions are like THAT doesn’t fit me why are they/he/she even asking me to go there?

I once asked a friend to go with me to a concert and got that reaction (for the reason I just said they couldn’t get passed being asked to something their preconceived notions said didn’t fit the kind of person they think they are).

Add: suffice to say I went without that person. It was their loss not mine after all.

Well, we only had rabbit ears for most of my childhood, so whatever we could pick up on that. I was born in '77, so mostly shows/music from the 80’s and 90’s. Lots of 3’s Company, A-Team, V… Couldn’t get most shows, but we’d record movies on VHS and watch those on repeat. After rewinding, of course…

Gen x here (I think) born Jan 18 1968.

So I got a fair dose of the 70s as well as the 80s. 1 of the unsound 80s treasures was night court (and the 1st 1 or 2 seasons of its spin off the Laroquette show. By season 3 the censors and we can’t offend folks had ruined the Laroquette show by taking out All the sexual inuendo joke and making it boring white bread tasteless pg 13).

We had rabbit ears til around 78 I think.

A 70s unsung treasure was Welcome back Kotter.

We’d watch All in the family, 3’s company, different strokes, the Brady bunch, emergency(not a comedy) Adam 12(not a comedy), benson, the Jeffersons, laverne and Shirley, happy days, mork and mindy. Bob Newhart,

Ironically my folks didn’t like family ties (I did) or theA team. They also didn’t dig mash.

Add and of course the Saturday morning cartoons

Add: I’m still a fan of Scooby Doo cartoons (the movies? They were ok but cartoons rocked especially now that as an adult I know how much work went into making em) :slight_smile: and ya can’t beat G1 or Sabre Rider and the Star sheriffs or Voltron or macross I think the other 1 was called.

I think if they made movies outa some of those like macross and Sabre rider it’d be way better then it was back then cuz the tech is so much better now (heck you got cgi animation now that almost looks 3d even on the tv screen like the backdrops on Archer).

Add: as to my bday everyone don’t stress ya didn’t know my bday when it happened I was too busy working to mention it here so… it’s on me that no one really knew. Then after the fact we’ll it was water under the bridge and too late to bother (but I realized after I said it up above you’d a notice it hence this comment add).

Tmw you read a post where the op asked something that blows your mind

And now to kick that sentiment to the curb I think of a song that’s the antithesis of the post sentiment

Song Advisory: contains some silly lyrics
