doesn't mean it's homo-erotic.

Plus, Who needs the clear and the cream when you have righteous anger!, putting some toys away, impending financial catastrophe, nine year old misses again, and less.

Poll: What actions are evil?



I am about recovered from MIL's visit last weekend (well, Saturday to Monday). She's pleasant, but hard, having no short term memory and failing long term memory, it's like watching a needy two year old with an adult's vocabulary. Alzhiemers/dementia is hard on everyone.

Anyhow, I missed my Saturday workout because Mrs. Ha got home late, so I had to work out Sunday (of course we didn't get our precious alone time Sunday either) and dang, with all my anger floating around, I had a nice workout. Grr, what focus.

For the 99% of you that have not been in my house, our study is one of the nicest rooms in the house, it has a small corner area that juts out from the house, covered in windows. Due to my Lego collection, it's nearly impossible to get back there.

Mrs. Ha saw a storage bench in the KMart flyer from Martha Stewart. I had always wanted to have a window bench there, or build one in, but this one is a perfect fit, so I agreed to get it, and move lots of my Lego. So now, the bench is there, more Lego is downstairs, and more will follow. The bench is nice, a darkly stained wood composite with a sageish colored cushion. I do feel bad about the panda bears who used to live in the composite woods and have since had the environment destroyed to make flat pack furniture.

This hasn't been without heartbreak, since I had to move my collection around, tthe Traveller inspired Scout ship I was working on became accessible, and four year old broke it. She was very upset, but it would have been no biggie, had upstreet_boy not proceeded to dis-assemble it. I need some closeable project boxes. I also need a village, upstreet_mom believes that since it takes a village to raise a kid, she feels free to let the 9 year old roam around unsupervised, the village can watch him.

In other sad Lego news, MIL put away Lego this weekend, but didn't realize that four year old wants all the Lego animals in one bin, and they've been mixed up. We still can't find her two Appaloosa horses. She is very sad.

Mrs. Ha and I watched Y Tu Mama Tambien last night, the R rated version. It was good, though I found most of the voiceovers to be annoying and redundant. In a well made movie, the backstory should be able to be figured out, or it shouldn't matter. I wish my Spanish was better, I wonder how much I missed. I do understand how judgemental folks might assume the movie is homo-erotic, but I thought all the scenes of fit young men swimming naked and jerking off together were quite relevant to the plot. What did I miss in the unrated version?

I did like all the glimpses of how the upper middle class live in Mexico.

There's going to be financial trouble a'coming. Our escrow shortfall is much less this year than last, so while our mortgage payment will be higher than it was for a few years, it will be about $50 lower than it was all last year, starting in May. In April my COLA goes through, for about an additional $100 month. While you might think we can conventionally balance our budget (coupled with lower heating bills), I think it really means we're going to socked with unexpected repair or medical bbills.

The nine year old wants to partake in Take Your Spawn to Work day. Last year it occurred when I was in Des Moines. This year it will happen when she's on her Philadelphia trip. Oh well, maybe next year, though she's bored by big beige plastic melting on paper boxes, and can see me type on a computer at home, so I don't know what she will get out of it.

Poll: Which is the greater evil?

Why should I care if you sex0r my best friend's girlfriend?

People in this country underestimate how many absolutely loaded people there are in Mexico. One thing you may have noticed from the movie was how easily rich Mexicans can just jet up to Tahoe for the weekend (as opposed to poor "illegals".)

How is that any different by ks1178 (2.00 / 0) #2 Wed Mar 29, 2006 at 08:05:47 AM EST
Than American's being able to go to Cancun easily?

The reason the government makes it difficult for the poor mexicans to get into the country is because they tend to want to stay in the country.

The rich ones just visit, spend some money, and go back home.

And that's the same for most countries. It's quite simple for me to go visit Canada (as an American). Getting a job in Canada, on the other hand, is much more difficult for me.

Isn't California America the one with some of the worst laws in regards to immigrants?

You seem confused by ucblockhead (2.00 / 0) #15 Wed Mar 29, 2006 at 09:55:25 AM EST
and are conflating two issues.

In any case, I was merely telling you what I meant by the phrase "middle America".

And please don't take this comment as me being against making it easier for people to work in the U.S.

I'm hoping that either the current bill being proposed for allowing illegal aliens working in the US to become legal workers, or a similar one gets put in place.

WRT Spawn at work. My daughters like to come into work with me because, as much fun as your swivel chair at home is, a whole cube farm of swivel chairs is even more fun. Which is why I no longer bring my daughters to work. The last time, I only needed fifteen minutes to install a new CRT in the training lab. Good gravy! The amount of trouble that they managed to find in fifteen minutes surprised even me.

There is no more degenerate kind of state than that in which the richest are supposed to be the best.

While plaster and lathe walls make for great by georgeha (4.00 / 1) #8 Wed Mar 29, 2006 at 08:54:34 AM EST
soundproofing, hanging stuff off them is a fu I have yet to master.

Those are scary dolls, though.

plaster?!! by calla (2.00 / 0) #9 Wed Mar 29, 2006 at 09:00:21 AM EST
ARgh. My suggestion has been defeated.

p.s. You'd better not let HIM hear you call them dolls - he doesn't like that.

In re: unrated version, by blixco (2.00 / 0) #14 Wed Mar 29, 2006 at 09:53:18 AM EST
the two guys had sex with the lady and it was implied with each other as well.  A big 3 way.

In re: all else, I'm not sure.

They show them standing together by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #16 Wed Mar 29, 2006 at 10:02:56 AM EST
in the bedroom, start to remove clothing, and then cut away. At least in the R version.

they show them kissing by MillMan (2.00 / 0) #17 Wed Mar 29, 2006 at 03:13:54 PM EST
I guess dudes kissing goes beyond R rated. lollerskats.

IIRC the director felt like making a realistic coming of age movie, unlike, say, American Pie.

Everybody still hates me in this city and I hate everybody.

It does change the movie by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #22 Thu Mar 30, 2006 at 04:21:20 AM EST
making what happened a lot less ambigous.

As Mrs. Ha says, they can show two dudes' weinies flapping around, but not two dudes kissing.

Do yourself a favour and watch the unrated version by 256 (2.00 / 0) #24 Thu Mar 30, 2006 at 06:49:02 AM EST
it is perhaps the sexiest movie i have ever seen.

and yes, in the unrated version it is implied as strongly as it can be without showing bumsex on screen that after getting drunk at the tiny coastal cantina, the woman gently and successfully encourages the boys to have sex with each other.
