Ever gone theater hopping?

Today's forecast: is calling for rain and thunda. It's definitely a stay inside day, so I'm going to hit the multi-plex with 26 screens. There are several movies out right now that I've been wanting to see and with a little planning I can catch them one after the other. And all at matinee prices.
My list for this morning:
1. Now You See Me @ 10:35
2. Star Trek @ 12:55
3. After Earth @ 3:40
I just have to remember to go out and buy the ticket for each show. Sometimes I forget and end up only spending $9.00 for three movies.
Of course there's the $127.00 I need for the concessions.
This is my answer to a rainy day off.

I've been having the same trouble

My read post aren't changing color like they used to. Been happening since around last Thursday. I haven't made any changes to my browser settings(Firefox 21.0) or my preferences in DU. If this is a new feature on DU count me in as hating it.

Happy Memorial Day!

Did anyone happen to notice?



I'm going snorkeling tomorrow in Key Largo. Riding the Water Taxi and bar hopping on Sunday. And the obligatory barbecue on Monday!

Who's with me? I'll cook!

Best Ballgame ever...

So I get a text message yesterday at 4 o'clock: "Wanna go to a Marlins game tonight? Won't cost nothin'." "Well, hell yes!" I replied.
A friend of mine finished processing a loan for an MLB Umpire and he offered him the tickets as a thank you.
So we get to the beautiful new Marlins Ballpark (which I helped build) and we go to the will call window. The tickets gave us access to the Diamond Club which meant a free buffet and free booze until 9 o'clock.
So we stuffed our faces and drank like fish. We finally go to find our seats and they are front row behind home plate!
The tickets also included our own waitress and more free booze!
This was hard to take, huh? Attendance was only about 15,000 so it was pretty intimate. It was also my first time back to the park since I was building it and what a welcome back!
The Marlins lost to the Phillies but I didn't care.
What a great night and a great ballpark.

Just wanted to share.

Suppose I hit the Powerball...

I grew up in Las Vegas and Atlantic City and have gambled since the day I turned 21; and one thing I have learned is that when good fortune falls in your lap, it should be shared with those close to you.
I believe it is good Kharma. That being said:

If after I win the Powerball (hey, it could happen) and I was to offer interest free loans only to DUers, how much would you ask for? Remember this is a guaranteed loan, not a gift, with flexible repayment options. How much do you really need to be comfortable.
Only those members that reply to this thread are eligible to receive a loan.

Oh, and anybody that has me on ignore can suck a lemon.

Oldie but a goodie

Candidate for a Pullet Surprise
by Mark Eckman and Jerrold H. Zar

I have a spelling checker,
It came with my PC.

Miss steaks aye can knot sea.

Eye ran this poem threw it,
Your sure reel glad two no.
Its vary polished in it's weigh.
My checker tolled me sew.

A checker is a bless sing,
It freeze yew lodes of thyme.
It helps me right awl stiles two reed,
And aides me when eye rime.

Each frays come posed up on my screen
Eye trussed too bee a joule.
The checker pours o'er every word
To cheque sum spelling rule.

Bee fore a veiling checker's
Hour spelling mite decline,
And if we're lacks oar have a laps,
We wood bee maid too wine.

Butt now bee cause my spelling
Is checked with such grate flare,
Their are know fault's with in my cite,
Of nun eye am a wear.

Now spelling does knot phase me,
It does knot bring a tier.
My pay purrs awl due glad den
With wrapped word's fare as hear.

To rite with care is quite a feet
Of witch won should bee proud,
And wee mussed dew the best wee can,
Sew flaw's are knot aloud.

Sow ewe can sea why aye dew prays
Such soft wear four pea seas,
And why eye brake in two averse
Buy righting want too pleas.

My face palm smiley is missing...

I put it back the last time I used it but it's gone now.
Do you know who took it?
There's a suspicious looking candle smilie here now and I suspect foul play.
Other people have face palm but some of us don't.

What happened to the facepalm smiley?

and when did this candle smiley show up?
Who's in charge around here?
