BIG BANG THEORY - Laughter Palooza

If you don't laugh for 30 minutes straight watching this show, there is something seriously wrong with you. Just LOOK at them! I watch them late at night every night. My daughter sometimes texts me, from her room, and asks me to stop laughing so loud. Really. It's a freaking hoot! So here are some random pics and some random quotes. Sheldon's delivery is great.

Sheldon: A little misunderstanding? Galileo and the Pope had a little misunderstanding...

Zack: Is that the laser? It's bitchin'.
Sheldon: Yes. In 1917, when Albert Einstein established the theoretic foundation for the laser in his paper "Zur Quantentheorie de Strahlung, his fondest hope was that the resultant device be bitchin'. 

Rajesh: Why so glum, chum?
Sheldon: Apparently you can't hack into a government supercomputer and then try to buy uranium without the Department of Homeland Security tattling to your mother.

"Raj: I don't like bugs, okay? They freak me out.
Sheldon: Interesting. You're afraid of insects and women. Ladybugs must render you catatonic.

Sheldon: It has been some time since we had a woman take her clothes off in our apartment.
Leonard: That's not true, remember at Thanksgiving, my Grandmother with Alzheimer's had that episode?
Sheldon: Point taken, it has been some time since we had a woman take her clothes off after which we didn't wanna rip our eyes out.
Leonard: The worst part was watching her carve that turkey.

*Playing 3D chess* Sheldon: Checkmate. 
Leonard: Oh, again? 
Sheldon: Obviously, you're not suited for three dimensional chess. Perhaps three dimensional Candy Land would be more your speed.
Leonard: Just reset the board! 
Sheldon: It must be humbling to suck on so many levels.

Zack: You know, I saw this great thing on the Discovery Channel. Turns out if you kill a starfish it'll just come back to life.
Sheldon: Was the starfish wearing boxer shorts? Because you might have been watching Nickelodeon.

Leonard: Hey, where've you been?
Sheldon: I was talking with Penny.

Howard: What's wrong with you? You can't hang out with your roommate's ex. That's totally uncool.
Leonard: No, it's fine. I don't care. I'm over it.

Raj: Yeah, he's over it; that's why he's been whining all day about trying to invent that memory-wiper gizmo from Men in Black.

Sheldon: Is he making any progress? Because I'd like to erase Ben Affleck as Daredevil.

Howard: So would Ben Affleck.

(The guys are eating dinner.)
Sheldon: Clarify something for me. Isn't the point of a communal meal the exchange of ideas and opinions, an opportunity to consider important issues of the day?
Leonard: It is. You just kinda put a damper on things when you said, 'The next person I see talking with food in their mouth will be put to death'.

Sheldon: Anyway, the housekeeper in the faculty residence didn't speak any English. When I finally managed to convince her I was sick, she said, "Möchtest du eine Darmspülung?" 
Penny: What does that mean? 
Sheldon: Based on what happened next, I assume it means, 'Would you like an enema?'

Sheldon: I think that you [Leonard] have as much of a chance of having a sexual relationship with Penny as the Hubble telescope does of discovering at the center of every black hole is a little man with a flashlight searching for a circuit breaker.

(This one is very old, but will show how my life goes. Klutz and all)Have you ever risen out of bed, with a feeling of unease? I did today. Up from bed, to the bathroom to brush my teeth, grab the dirty laundry, a book and phone. Struggle down the stairs half asleep. Turn on the pot to boil water for coffee. I like instant. No delayed gratification for this girl. I grab a mug from the rack. It falls over, my head snaps in that direction with shock as mugs crash into the sink with the soap container, and one hits the fish bowl. Well, Fluffy and I are awake now. Yes, I named my fish fluffy. If people can name their dog Cat and their cat Dog, I can name my fish Fluffy. Another mishap occurs immediately after which I can't even remember now, 20 minutes later, as age has attacked my brain, and held parts of my memory captive, so it seems.... Somewhere in the back of my brain is a nagging thought that this is not going to be a good day. The water is boiling. I pour it into the cup on the counter, and miss by an inch or so, as my eye sight is also being held captive by age. In what seems like slow motion, I barely see part of the water enter the cup, more falls to the counter top, and by some strange and evil force of motion, more flys through the air landing on my stomach. So much for going to the pool for a tan today. The shock of the pain causes me to  drop the pot on the counter and yell,"I hate my life!!". Seems like an appropriate reaction at the time. lol. I head for the Aloe plant, to soothe my pain, then go out back with my coffee (what little I had after loosing the boiling water to my stomach) sit with a smoke and a book. Suddenly I realize that I'm inappropriately dressed to be in my neighbors view should they step outside for some morning air. As I collect my smokes, book and coffee, I spill just enough coffee to attract a team of vicious ants. Why are there so many ants in Leesburg????
I come inside and almost spill the coffee all over the rug. I now have a welt on my stomach where the boiling water attacked me so intently. I grab a bag of ice, place in on the welt, and tuck it neatly under my inappropriate shirt. I pour some water in a cup to swoosh over the spilled coffee so that the ants won't call on their cousins for a picnic. Well, I toss the water, but there's not enough, and I miss most of the spilled coffee. "Ah hell"! Whatever...have a picnic on me.   That will be my good deed for the week. Feed the poor ants. Then I decide that I should just sit in a safe place, not holding anything of danger...hot coffee...lit cigarette...a book that, obviously, could attack me at any moment in some unimaginable and horrific way.....and DO NOTHING!! So I put everything down and sit at the computer. How dangerous could that be? Of course I kept losing my connection, then I couldn't log into myspace because apparently my fingers weren't listening properly to my brain when I instructed them to type in my user name and password 3 different times!!! "Type in the secret code"??! "Oh my word"!! With full, almost insane concentration, and saying it out loud, as if I were loosing my mind, I Finally get all the characters right. Ah, the world has fallen back into place. I feel better. :) 
BAM!!!! Some poor little bird, who I can only imagine felt my pain, and was rushing to my rescue, SLAMMED into my sliding glass door RIGHT NEXT TO ME!! I jump, say a quick prayer for the birdie, change my shorts, grab writing material and move out to the front of the house as it's obviously not safe for me to be sitting inside anywhere! Now I'm out of paper and must transfer this to my computer. As I contemplate walking back inside, I feel that I need Holy water to sprinkle around my obviously possesed home. It's worth a shot, I think, as flies are trying to attack me here on the front porch. Hmmm. Wasn't this a movie? I get to my computer, log into myspace with much ease and then suddenly it says, "We're sorry, but an error has occurred". Well, of course it did! lol!  I made it this far though, CONSTANTLY selecting all and copying what I've typed. If you are reading this then one good thing happened. Myspace held up while I typed the insanity of my morning in the haunted house. Funny ha ha or Funny....'You poor thing'........Laws of attraction are at work full force in the Harrison home today. Today I am thankful that my daughter can drive, as I obviously should not be operating any equipment today that could possibly kill me or anyone else. :)

Tis the season, fun and folly,making jokes about Aunt Molly.

Laughter, love and giving free, drunken stumbles upon the tree.

Cup in hand and spreading cheer, flying upon the nearest reindeer.

Apologizing to Uncle John, as he's the reindeer I rode upon.

Granny's teeth fell in the pot, a six pack down I say, "why not".

Sipping stew and full of folly, shooting Spitballs at Aunt Molly.

That'll teach her a thing or two, I say while sipping granny's stew.

Vultures gnawing on the wrapper, one more gift for the crapper.

Kissing under mistletoe, regretting it was Uncle Joe!

Sneaking out upon the roof, hoping to wrangle just one hoof.

There goes one! I reel 'em in. Holy crap it's Aunty Gin!

Off the roof into the snow, at least it wasn't Uncle Joe!

Change into my santa suit, damn I'm looking mighty cute.

Stumble down the stairs for fun, little kiddies on the run.

Wait little girl, I'm Santa Claus! daddy grips me with his paws.

Come on son, follow me, I have something you should see.

Boot in ass I'm flying high, reindeer soaring through the sky.

Hello Rudolph, hey there Donner, boy I thought I was a goner!

Well this was fun spreading cheer, can't wait to see you all next year.

But if I don't, it's just as well, cousin Karen's looking swell.

I went through something that left me feeling terribly used, fooled and taken for a ride. All the while I had compromised my own moral beliefs. One day I realized something. It's always what we perceive. This person who left my life in such a cowardly and hurtful way still exists in me. I couldn't deny that, as much as I made up my mind to do so. Apparently my heart and soul had a different plan. I was at peace with my belief that I was used and I had moved on. Then one day, while driving down the road, he came up. Not just to mind, but to my soul. This feeling overwhelmed me. It was as if our souls were actually joined in some existence beyond the natural. I realized that what I thought we had was real. That it lives and breathes somewhere out there, and that it always will. It was as if we were still floating through the cosmos, as one. Everyone we touch will always exist within us, but I guess some have a more powerful place. It left me feeling very peaceful and even more able to move on. Then I found out that he interacted with a friend on the internet that Same night that I had this feeling. Neither of us had heard from him in weeks...months? Well, a long while. It freaked her out. Not me. That's kind of how it was with us. So I won't harbor ill feelings anymore, and I would be Very justified to do so. It doesn't matter what evil he did, or intended. In my world, it was worth it and it was real. That is all that matters. What I perceive. What we perceive. I want to perceive Peace, Love and acceptance for what is. Anything else, is just useless and leads to more insanity.

My son and his friends always Beg me to make these pancakes. This batch isn't too fluffy. Probably b/c I get a little heavy handed with the milk. First batch I ever made was about 1.5 x the fluff of these. You still need more than a cup, but not too much more for more fluff. Sometimes we throw in chocolate chips (A big hit) Today I broke out bananas, raspberries and whipped cream. Yum!

3 C flour
6 Tbs sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbs baking powder
3 eggs
1/3 C canola oil
1+ C milk

Mix the dry ingredients.
Mix the wet ingredients.
Combine wet & dry.
Add extra milk, if needed.
Cook over medium heat.
(I never mix things separately. All goes in the bowl together).
