Katrina: whoooo hoooo!!
Katrina
: It''s Sherry!!!
Sherry
: hi!
Sherry: are you throwing confetti?
Sherry: for me :)
Katrina: pfft, yeah!!!
Sherry
: lol
Sherry: feeling better?
Katrina
: yep! lots!
Katrina
: like
Katrina
: phreaky lots
Sherry
: excellent
Katrina: I think the wood stove is broken and kicking out some bizarre fume
Katrina
: cause I'm all high and stuff
Sherry
: lol
Katrina: it's bizarre
Sherry
: you could start a new drug for people with wood stoves
Sherry: something you have to bake into pottery or something, then you just set it on your stove and it heats up and emits something that makes you feel goooood
Sherry: or is there already something like that? I'm not up on all that so much, lol
Katrina: I..... LIKE IT!
Sherry
: I have a little gas cast iron stove, so I'll buy one. You could be rich
Katrina: cool!
Katrina
: I need to be rich
Katrina
: but Eric is all giddy about his jeep, so that buys me a month at least of good vibe
Katrina
: if he gets all stupid all I have to do is say, "Jeeeeep" and he'll lull back down
Katrina
: AGGGHHHH!!!
Katrina
: A friend  just sent me a Coors game
Katrina
: and I'm not going to be mean and even give you the link
Katrina
: you count the bottles of Coors on a wall
Katrina
: and it goes 2 and then 4 and then 9 and then 11 and then someone screams and a big frickin Frankenstein's Monster jumps onto the screen
Katrina
: and you have a heart attack and die
Sherry
: lol
Sherry: no thanks, I'll pass on the dying part
Katrina
: oh man. I'm looking at this new Pierce Bronson movie
Katrina
: with Woody Harrelson
Katrina
: and WH is trying to be all cool
Katrina
: and he just looks like the guy from Kingpin
Sherry
: lol
Sherry: oh your new hotness dude is quite something, by the way
Sherry: I've never seen him before
Katrina: oh he's amazing
Katrina
: I wish I could ship my TiVo to you so you could see him
Katrina
: you should download some of his music
Katrina
: he's awesome
Katrina
: so much the new hotness
Katrina
: crap, I'll brb. Gotta go dress Nathan as a ninja
Katrina
: OK, Ninja accomplished
Sherry
: lol
Katrina: I don't do any costumes that take longer than 4.8 minutes to assemble
Sherry
: oh man
Sherry: I'm still working on costumes
Sherry: and it's most definitely taking me longer to assemble it all
Sherry: they don't get to wear them to school though, so I don't have to have anything until Sunday, thank goodness
Katrina: see, you're young
Katrina
: I don't mess around
Sherry
: and stupid
Katrina: nah, just energetic
Sherry
: I got the bright idea to use white duct tape for the mummy
Katrina: eeep
Sherry
: well on clothes, not right on her, lol
Katrina: oh, ok, I was thinking itd be great until time to take it off
Sherry
: I taped up an old sweat suit, and it worked good
Sherry: but
Sherry: I have no idea what to do for her head now :\
Katrina: pfft
Katrina
: just use gauze
Katrina
: clip it to her hair with bobby pins
Katrina
: and start winding
Sherry
: yeah, I'm thinking I probably will have to - gonna have to go buy some
Katrina: trust me, toilet paper doesn't a mummy make
Sherry
: yeah, lol, I nixed tp right away
Sherry: if it rained, we'd have quite the mess I figured
Katrina: yeah
Sherry
: now the spider I have mostly under control, but I may have to sew a little for that and I don't have much time
Sherry: which is why I should probably be doing that stuff instead of sitting here...but it feels so good to just sit here for a change, my computer barely knows me these days
Katrina: you're a woman possessed
Katrina
: see, next year you'll be older
Katrina
: and I can save you from yourself
Katrina
: all through the year, I amass costumes from thrift stores
Katrina
: and they just go through and pick
Katrina
: at Halloween
Katrina
: although
Katrina
: Dylan wasn't into any of the current ones
Katrina
: so I actually laid out $15 for a power rangers costume
Katrina
: but now he has ninja envy
Katrina
: and I think, though he will not admit it, a tad of school envy
Katrina
: the ninja was his last year
Sherry
: oh yeah, I'm sure the school envy is there on days like this
Katrina: yeah
Sherry
: if my kids knew some kids get to wear their costumes to school (our school doesn't allow it), they'd be demanding a new school asap
Sherry: they're all into halloween this year
Katrina: LOL
Katrina
: Delena's middle school gave out a paper yesterday on costume restrictions
Katrina
: and they were reasonable, no depicting drug or alcohol use, no gory body parts, still follow the dress code, no dangerous shit
Katrina
: but one thing that stood out
Katrina
: is they were forbidden from dressing up as Osama Bin Laden
Katrina
: Eric said, "It's ON. I'm picking her up wearing my Saudi gear"
Sherry
: wow
Sherry: that's interesting
Katrina: yeah
Katrina
: oh
Katrina
: or Freddy Krueger
Katrina
: it's actually in the same sentence
Sherry
: do that many kids really want to dress up as Osama anyway? I'd think it'd be mostly off their radar
Katrina: for real
Sherry
: my kids don't have a clue who Osama is
Sherry: Freddy Krueger and Osama? lol
Katrina: these are middle schoolly kids tho
Sherry
: hee
Katrina: so they might
Katrina
: is that so funny or what?
Sherry
: it's the new axis of evil!
Katrina: I am picturing the teachers sitting around the table making these rules
Sherry
: My rule would be no Chuckie
Sherry: is Chuckie that little doll freak?
Sherry: is that his name?
Katrina: yep
Sherry
: he frightens me
Katrina: "NO DRESSING UP LIKE GWEN STEFANI!!"
Sherry
: no Chuckie, no Freddie and no Osama
Sherry: lol
Sherry: Gwen's cool!
Katrina: "NO AVRIL LEVIGNE!"
Katrina
: or however it's spelled
Katrina
: of course, that breaks dress code anyway
Sherry
: Avril is scary though - I'm on board with that
Sherry: add her to the evil axis
Katrina: lol
Katrina
: agggh!
Katrina
: gotta get nate to the bus
Katrina
: brb
Katrina
: whooohooo!
Katrina
: packed away on the bus
Sherry
: off for a ninja good time
Katrina
: yep
Sherry
: http://abc.go.com/primetime/lost/images/gallery/ep104/gallery.html?photo=6 My new hotness of the moment
Sherry: I love him *sigh*
Katrina: hey, I already called the hotness!!!
Katrina
: you may NOT supercede my hotness so soon!
Sherry
: lol
Sherry: yes well this isn't a world decree, it's just a personal decree ;) Your hotness is not superceded, I promise
Katrina: nice save
Sherry
: He's on Lost (which is the best ever and you should be watching it) - other than that, he's basically nobody
Katrina: LOL
Katrina
: you're getting all TV bossy
Sherry
: lol
Katrina: I kinda like it ;)
Sherry
: oh yay! It's time to start watching to see if Detroit will burn down tomorrow night. Always great fun
Katrina: they burn down detroit?
Sherry
: they try
Sherry: it's now renamed "angels night" in Detroit and about a million volunteers go patrol the streets trying to prevent arsonists
Katrina: interesting
Sherry
: I used to have no idea that it was pretty much just a michigan thing - it's a big deal, like if you live anywhere near detroit you don't leave the house that night - too scary
Katrina: wow
Katrina
: that is some serious indoctrination
Katrina
: so this has been going on for a while then?
Sherry
: yeah, in the 80's, Devils Night was huge - hundreds of fires (above the normal however many) set - like whole houses (mostly vacant) burned down, etc
Sherry: they have like 40,000 people patrolling the streets now all night that night, and there's always a curfew for under 18
Katrina: that's really damned freaky
Katrina
: we just go get candy
Sherry
: lol
Katrina: ONCE I had my jack-o-lantern stolen
Sherry
: even out here, the night before Halloween is a big prank night - mostly harmless. Lot's of tp'ing peoples houses, smashing pumpkins, etc - people just pretty much stay in after dark because you never quite know what will go on
Katrina: y'all are a violent bunch
Sherry
: People used to actually flee Detroit though, getting hotel rooms and staying out of the city
Sherry: pfft yeah, lol
Sherry: we're all pyromaniacs and pumpkin haters ;)
Katrina: lol
Sherry
: now on Halloween itself, everybody puts down their lighters and propane torches and we just hand out candy, having wreaked enough havoc for the year the night before, we take let the little kids have peace for trick or treating
Katrina: that's sweet
Sherry
: we think so
Katrina: :)
Sherry: we might burn down your house, but we'd never ever deny a kid his candy - that's just wrong
Katrina: I am totally on board with that
Sherry
: plus, we're one of the fattest states, and we'd never jeopardize that
Sherry: speaking of candy
Sherry: the new snickers crunchy is just awesome
Katrina: yessss?
Katrina
: yeah? Haven't had one yet
Sherry
: better than the original (but I prefer crunchy to chewy so I'm biased I suppose)
Katrina: I'm a chewy folk
Sherry
: oh then you might not like it much
Katrina: I love the original, though
Katrina
: mmmmm
Sherry
: that commercial campaign they did awhile back about a snickers being like a meal? That was effective because I still think about having a snickers instead of breakfast
Katrina: LOL
Katrina
: definitely
Katrina
: to show what kind of town I live in
Katrina
: there is a raffle at the fall festival tomorrow night for a cord of wood
Katrina
: lol
Sherry
: lmao
Sherry: yep, that says it all, lol
Katrina: I imagine it will get a lot of attention
Sherry
: I'm sure
 though, so that works out fine
Sherry: I almost killed several wild turkeys with the truck the other day
Katrina: that must have been an experience
Katrina
: I saw a little herd of them last weekend too
Sherry
: turkeys tend to strut around all entitled like - which is odd for something that has an entire holiday centered around eating them
Katrina: yeah, they got issues
Katrina
: James Marsten is so much the total and complete bomb
Katrina
: Marsters
Katrina
: whatever
Katrina
: Spike
Sherry
: but not to supercede The New Hotness
Katrina: lol
Katrina
: nope
Katrina: I want pizza hut buffet
Katrina
: *pout*
Katrina
: All Ive had is eggs and chicken
Katrina
: I wont' tell you which came first
Sherry
: lol!
Sherry: when we were dating, Scott and I had this big argument about the "if a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it does it make a sound" thing
Sherry: it was nasty
Sherry: now we avoid such conversations
Katrina: you fought over that?
Sherry
: yes!
Sherry: it's because he's so illogical
Sherry: it's all his fault
Katrina: I must know what side you were on
Katrina
: dammit
Sherry
: ;)
Katrina
: I demand to know
Katrina
: *stomp*
Sherry
: honestly, I can't even remember - which is sad
Katrina: oh you do too
Sherry: but, if I were taking a side now
Katrina: ok
Katrina
: that will do
Sherry
: I'd go with sound being the manifestation of the eardrum, so no, there's no sound if no one hears it
Katrina: lol
Sherry
: don't know if that's true though - and honestly, I might have been on the other side
Sherry: because I've changed my entire outlook since I was 19, lol
Katrina: that's funny
Sherry
: you know, I need a drumstick
Sherry: not the turkey kind either
Sherry: and you? is there a sound?
Katrina: i think that since sound is measured in decibels, which are capable of being measured with machinery, with or without an ear present, I'd go with yes, it makes a sound
Sherry
: woo whoo!
Sherry: we can have our first big argument!
Katrina: but
Katrina
: I won't fight you over it
Sherry
: lol
Katrina: nah, Bush and Kerry
Sherry
: actually, I won't fight over it either since I think I'm on the wrong side :(
Sherry: oh yeah, we'll always have the presidential race!
Katrina: I'm not sure either on the tree thing (as opposed to the Bush thing)
Katrina
: since the machinery probably (and I dunno) measure decibels by mimicking an eardrum
Sherry
: oh and see
Sherry
: if that machinery is there to measure the sound, then there's a sound, but if it's not...is there still a sound?
Katrina: what?
Sherry
: lol
Sherry: like if no ear, and no sound measuring machinery is present...then can it still be a "sound"?
Katrina: yeah
Katrina
: just no one hears it
Sherry
: lol
Sherry: see? this is how the argument went I believe, lol
Katrina: Ill have to call in the big guns
Katrina
: and ask Eric
Sherry
: it's as big as the abortion debate - when is a sound, a sound? when it is made or when it is heard?
Sherry: we can start pro-ear and pro-actual sound groups and burn each other's headquarters down
Sherry: we should headquarter in detroit - so it'll fit right in
Katrina: that's like saying if a person is born, lives 80 years in a cave, then dies in the cave and their bones decompose to powder, did they live?
Sherry
: well sure they lived
Katrina: the ever present arrogance of humans that they must personally experience something (or a representative of their species) for it to exist
Sherry
: but sound is only waves until it hits an eardrum type device, so are the waves "sound" or is that not what it is until it's "heard"
Sherry: lol
Sherry: I think you just called me ever presently arrogant! I'm stomping off now ;)
Katrina: nah, not you specifically, just humans in general are just arrogant
Katrina: and vision is only light variations until it hits a retina
Katrina
: so does something really exist if it's unseen?
Sherry
: well no, it exists, but it's not seen
Katrina
: like "we MUST be the only living things in the universe"
Sherry
: like sound isn't sound until it's heard
Sherry: hee hee
Katrina: and sound is still sound, it's just not heard
Katrina
: right
Sherry
: lol
Sherry: nah, it's waves, it's not sound
Sherry: this is the stuff presidential candidates should debate though
Sherry: this is the important stuff
Katrina: we need to get you a separate off topic column
Sherry: yeah maybe
Sherry: it's all stormy and rainy today
Sherry: very fitting for Halloween weekend, I must say
Sherry: at 10am it looked dark enough to be 8pm
Katrina: we could go back to mercurial mercurio
Katrina: someone was just mentioning that they miss that title
Katrina: and loved it
Katrina: I can't remember who it was
Sherry: yeah! I miss it too a bit
Sherry: it was a good title - you have a good title mind ;)
Katrina: :)
Sherry: I so don't
Katrina: we can use either for either
Katrina: they both work well
Katrina: I still like Pop My Sherry
Sherry: yep
Katrina: It was Kate, I think, who mentioned missing the title
Sherry: lol
Katrina: who said she missed it
Sherry: Elton John and Madonna are spatting?
Sherry: I'd pay to see them throw down in a ring somewhere
Sherry: Elton can be a bit scary when he's pissed
Sherry: but Madonna has more muscles
Sherry: should be a good fight
Katrina: oooh
Katrina: two bitches going at it
Sherry: exactly
Sherry: we can change the phrase "the bitch is back" to "the bitches whack" and use it as the fight slogan -then turn them loose in front of a crowd, money going to charity (and 10% to us). It's a good strategy.
Katrina: lol
Katrina: love it
Sherry: I gotta go get the kids
Katrina: okey dokey, bye bye
