....and thank YOU Part II


I just found a way to save money, used creativity to solve a problem and got things working again. Unexpectedly, the man I was helping said, "I want you in my fallout shelter." I've been getting the oddest compliments today.

Wait, where's the sign-up sheet? I didn't realize these babies were filling up!

Nice. You know, my all-time favorite quote along these lines comes from Charles Barkley, who in the foreward to a collection of essays by Sports Illustrated writer Rick Reilly wrote this:

"Of all the people in sports I'd like to throw through a plate glass window, Reilly's not one of them. It's a shame though, skinny white boys look real aerodynamic."

You've got me in your reader, 66. You know I love your blog shelter.

Lacochran. No kidding. I thought things were going to get better.

Hammer: LOVED that quote. Never heard it.

.....and I hate to think what The Playaz would consider essentials in their shelter...and my gut tells me they have one worthy of a James Bond movie.

My goodness.........had no idea someone still kept a "shelter" up but I imagine it's a euphemism for some place even more scary!

Kate: I think I understood what he meant, because I've had similar things said before, but usually more along the lines of "If there was a war, I'd want you in my fox hole." You don't freeze in bad situations, you don't do anything stupid to get you and others killed, and you find ways outside the box to help the situation. It truly was a compliment and not some creepy "come into my dungeon" moment.

And boom goes the detinator. Speaking of fallout stuff, Tony can't install the cool game he got for me, Fallout 3. I need to kill some mutants! Do you know a geek squad who can help?

Come down into my fallout shelter, Ms. Cube! I'd like to show you some of my... etchings.

In all seriousness, just given how fascinating your breadth of knowledge is, I would find you irreplaceable in any event requiring one spends a great amount of time in any given isolated place.
