to get the full effect one must have Croftie over-enunciate the UUUU sound in doom. I am reminded of the garfield animated holiday specials when the characters whistle and their lips look like the brass bells of mini-trumpets.

doooooomsday.

so, do you have pics from this past weekend? The adventure with kara was fully documented, but nothing here? I don't think this guy is real.

oline said...

i love how the automatic assumption here is that i would concoct a long drawn out weekend/vacation/concert-going scenario with an imaginary friend.

Meggie said...

Like you haven't done it before?

oline said...

that was harsh. and it's been a very very very long time...

Meggie said...

*laughs* Caro, I say it in love and because I'm pretty sure that I made one up in high school just to piss off a certain someone.

oline said...

ooooooh. HOW did i ever forget about that?!

Meggie said...

Kinda like you forgot to tell me about a certain someone until like LAST YEAR???

oline said...

totally different matter. you're imaginary boyfriend wasn't obvious. my gay boyfriend was.

Meggie said...

Hey, my gaydar has been off before. Ben Heithcock!! Totally straight!

oline said...

whoever in the world was ben heithcock?!

and seriously- thanks for mentioning a few weeks ago that lemming spawned. it's taken me this long to regroup and acknowledge that.

Meggie said...

You don't remember Ben?? He stayed at Page. *shrugs* I knew him from kindergarten on up. His mom got arrested for stealing cows in the 7th or 8th grade...

oline said...

this is why i love you. because you can shrug and blithely toss out accusations of cow theivery.

Meggie said...

No!!! She did!! And his dad was a deputy so it was this huge thing!!! Like his dad almost lost his job cause his wife stole cows.

oline said...

that last line there is officially the greatest sentence ever written.

that should be the subtitle of dougo's master work: evil man smells baby and stabs snowman: like his dad almost lost his job cause his wife stole cows. who wouldn't buy that?

Meggie said...

Will I finally make the quote of the month thingy in which I have so graciously allowed you to use a picture of my husband??

BTW, have you checked your email for the greatest shirt ever?

oline said...

1) the greatest shirt ever hasn't shown up yet.

2) you've made the quote of the month thingy many many a time.

3) that is not your husband.

Meggie said...

1) Where is the stupid email!!!

2) I have made it like twice

3) That is so my husband

4) Go here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYhlm9GTAQ0

oline said...

1) it arrived. i responded.

2) um... no. also you never call me like you used to. it's a wonder the romance hasn't died.

3) again, um... no.

4) thanks to eF and a morning of banana muffins and oprah, i already know james & julia. and on my honor, i demand a first dance do-over- you, mike and "hey mickey." do it. your maid commands you.

Meggie said...

I could not get Mike out there for Hey Michie (it was in honor of me) so I had to settle for Mom and Dad.

Also, kinda hard to get the hubby to do that dance.

oline said...

well then we'll just have to restage it at your 50th. tell the boy to prepare himself.

Meggie said...

He can't dance now!!! Plus, he doesn't plan on living that long--he thinks life is over at 40.
