I’d like to call this meeting to order…

I’d like to open by thanking everyone for attending the 150th post of “Can’t Remember Diddly!”. I’m your president, vice-president, secretary, and treasurer. Here’s our agenda for the meeting today.

Reading and Approval of Minutes of the Last Meeting
Read ’em and weep.
All approved say ‘Aye’
[chorus of ‘Ayes’]
All opposed
[crickets chirping]
Minutes stand approved as read.
*raps gavel*

Treasurer’s Report
We have money; yet, somehow, we are still broke. Do not anticipate a change in this state of affairs in the forseeable future.
All approved say ‘Aye’
[chorus of ‘Ayes’]
All opposed
[crickets chirping]
Minutes stand approved as read.
*raps gavel*

Old Business

1. I am, of course, behind in my Google Reader to the tune of posts written about 4 days ago. A note, people; April’s Fool’s Day posts about authors intending to close their blog were not warmly recieved. Making me hyperventilate is, contrary to popular opinion, NOT amusing.

2. Exhibit C in “Tom’s a PRISSY girl” trial (title of trial amended by Miss Ann)

First, Deaf Mom found this and posted it on her blog and Hunky and I loved it.

And here is a resulting IM chat log between HunkyDory:
12:36:16 PM Hunky: who was the artist that you like so much. He does that song that is like an old hymn… I can’t remember his name
12:36:28 PM Dory: todd agnew, grace like rain
12:36:33 PM Hunky: I think the last name starts
12:36:36 PM Hunky: yeah, that’s it
12:36:45 PM Dory: would like to put together a signing present for it
12:37:22 PM Hunky: That would be cool.I want to do one for the Casting Crowns song “Who Am I”
12:37:27 PM Hunky: I love that song
12:37:33 PM Dory: i do too
12:37:47 PM Hunky: I think, I might be able tostay in key for that.
12:37:58 PM Dory: i would probably set them up pidgin sign instead of ASL since it’s for hearing people to see it
12:38:06 PM Hunky: well, yea
12:38:25 PM Hunky: it would be harder for people to follow if it were ASL
12:38:42 PM Dory: that’s why beautiful looked a little weird to you
12:38:46 PM Dory: they translated
12:39:00 PM Dory: “no matter what they say” to WHATEVER THAT
12:39:17 PM Hunky: heheh
12:42:13 PM Hunky: what is the sign for “because”?
12:42:34 PM Dory: right pointer hand across forehead
12:42:45 PM Hunky: that’s right
12:42:47 PM Dory: “pointer” to “x hand”
12:44:07 PM Hunky: That is a really beautiful song, especially in sign
12:44:27 PM Hunky: it makes me well up and get all verklempt
12:45:07 PM Hunky: n stuff
12:45:35 PM Dory: you girl
12:45:41 PM Hunky: I know
12:45:46 PM Dory: seriously?
12:45:48 PM Dory: you do?
12:45:53 PM Dory: *wrinkles nose*
12:46:00 PM Hunky: it makes my uterus ache:-)
12:46:07 PM Dory: *snickers*
12:46:12 PM Hunky: little bit, yeah
12:46:18 PM Hunky: srsly
12:46:27 PM Dory: i’m blogging that
12:46:39 PM Hunky: I’m never telling you that again
12:46:43 PM Hunky: anything
12:46:44 PM Dory: hahahahaha
12:46:46 PM Hunky: ever
12:46:51 PM Dory: LMAO
12:47:12 PM Dory: c’mon, that’s funny 🙂
12:47:22 PM Dory: you mad if I blog that?
12:47:30 PM Hunky: no
12:47:41 PM Hunky: I’m used to the world thinking I’m a girl
12:47:59 PM Hunky: you know better, usually
12:48:04 PM Dory: hahaha
12:48:58 PM Dory: I think after the last almost 14 years and especially last night, there should be absolutely no doubt that you are completely utterly hetero *waggles eyebrows*
12:50:22 PM Hunky: rowr!
12:50:37 PM Hunky: that’s what I’m sayin!
12:50:40 PM Dory: <>
12:50:55 PM Dory: < / growl >
12:51:12 PM Hunky: hahahaha

New Business

1. Our hot water heater purchased in 1994 finally went to the big home improvement store in the sky. It died after a long illness punctuated by an elaborate ruse of coaxing it to work each day. Aformentioned ruse would be perpetrated in this manner: one would announce loudly, “Guess I’ll take a shower now!” and turn on the water for at least one minute. Next, one would say dejectedly, “Well, never mind; no hot water today. I suppose I’ll just stink.” and leave the bathroom. Five minutes later, one would sneak in quietly and quickly turn water on again and pull up shower knob quickly as possible, and if the hot water heater wasn’t paying close enough attention, hot water would be dispensed forthwith. However, dispense was restricted to approximately 15 minutes, so if two were showering and one was also planning on shaving; too bad, so sad.

Wednesday night, I turned on the hot water faucet and didn’t get hot water as previously anticipated. Reported this to Hunky, who proposed we travel to Menard’s to purchase a new hot water heater. After much bitching and moaning on my part regarding my disappointment in spending tax refund monies towards home repairs, commenced with trip amongst consoling noises on Hunky’s part. Arrived at Menard’s and picked out said hot water heater, a 50 gallon with a 6 year warranty. In respect for our younger and/or familial readers, must censor Hunky’s comments regarding potential for more numerous acts of marital union in shower since this new 50 gallon is a step up from the old 40 gallon. My deepest and most abject apologies; it appears censor failed. At least it was polite.

Next up for discussion was where we were going to get a shower in the morning, since it was clear that I was not paying emergency night rates to get this bugger installed immediately. I volunteered to stay home and wait for the plumber to arrive thus negating my need for shower. Hey, if somebody needs to stay home from work and NOT have to get up before the butt crack of dawn, I’m your gal. I just give sacrificially like that.

So, $700 later, we are now proud owners of a duly installed brand spanking shiny new hot water heater. Oh, the joys never cease.

2. Went to the Decypher Down / Thousand Foot Krutch / Skillet concert Thursday night. I am 35 years old and I have a sore neck from head bangin’ and a warbly voice from screamin’. Have now properly trained my offspring in both important areas of development. Amen.

The lead singer told us how this song came about. He wrote it for a girl who was talking to him about how she would cut herself to escape. He’s married, so I think he wrote this like God is reassuring her that He’s always there.

Lyrics for my D/HoH pals:

You come to me with scars on your wrist
You tell me this will be the last night feeling like this
I just came to say goodbye
I didn’t want you to see me cry, I’m fine
But I know it’s a lie.
[Chorus:]
This is the last night you’ll spend alone
Look me in the eyes so I know you know
I’m everywhere you want me to be.
The last night you’ll spend alone,
I’ll wrap you in my arms and I won’t let go,
I’m everything you need me to be.
Your parents say everything is your fault
But they don’t know you like I know you they don’t know you at all
I’m so sick of when they say It’s just a phase, you’ll be o.k. you’re fine
But I know it’s a lie.
[Chorus]
The last night away from me
[Bridge:]
The night is so long when everything’s wrong
If you give me your hand I will help you hold on
Tonight,
Tonight.
[Chorus]
I won’t let you say goodbye,
I’ll be your reason why.
The last night away from me,
Away from me.

Upcoming Meetings:
