1. A good quote from the Los Angeles Times...

"Scottish comic Billy Connolly, a former L.A. resident, can't figure out why anyone would knock the City of Angels.

"I remember once, I was driving to Warner Bros. to do 'Head of the Class,' " he told Patt Morrison on her KPCC-FM (89.3) radio show, "and I had a hot rod, a baby blue Ford Roadster, a 1939, and I had the Beach Boys on — 'Round, Round, Get Around, I Get Around' — and I was rolling down the hill in my hot rod, and a guy dressed as Jesus was walking up the hill with a cross and he had a wee wheel at the end of his cross so it wouldn't wear out on the road.

"This complete Jesus was walking toward me, and I was listening to the Beach Boys in my hot rod coming down toward him and I'm going to Warner Bros., where Bugs Bunny lives, and I thought, 'Oh, I'm so glad I live here — this is livin'!' ""

2. A good quote from undead_milkman...

"To comment on either of these subjects would be like punching a baby. Easy and fun."

3. Don't wear red to your next test...

4. Observation:

Where did the phrase "Get behind me, Satan" come from? I'd think anyone who believes in him sure as heck wants him as far away as possible, and if he's anything like they portray him on South Park then behind me is the LAST place I'd want him!

5. Cuteness...

Ohhh it's a baby falling asleeeeeep. :D :D :D I love that place!

The "get behind me satan" thing is from Matthew 16:23, with the Temptation of Christ.

Then apparently Jesus was a good enough guy to not automatically think of the ramifications of him being behind you, the way I did.

I wondered about that one way before I knew anything about *ahem* 'ramification'... (my vote was for out of my vicinity entirely.)

'Oh, I'm so glad I live here — this is livin'!'

my thoughts exactly...I love being here or I wouldn't have come back...

It's always good to hear someone besides me loves this place. I get so tired of people complaining about L.A., don't you?
krystalemerges on March 7th, 2007 10:37 pm (UTC)
I just...
tell them to leave...there are plenty o' places to be...

I especially tell them to move when they moan about 'seasons'...go some place else...they have plenty of them. I prefer warm and warmer, although I have wondered 'where' exactly I moved to this winter, shivers...and loving being in a sundress and mules today >:) I am a happy bunny indeed!

Re: I just...
If I told them to leave I'd need to find a new roommate AND a new boyfriend....

Re: I just...
well, there is that...

OMG, that was so cute, I'm still sighing...

Thanks for the mega-dose of uber-cute-kitty-goodness!

The timer counts down 5-4-3-2-1 asleep....I love it.

Maybe the incident happened on line at a Jerusalem movie theater. "Get thee behind me, for I have seen thee arrive not one minute ago, and so did my bretheren here." And lo, thus chastised the fiend did take his place last in line, and was much abashed. (Gospel of Murray, the Stealth Apostle, 6:46)
Fritters: Christ - Believe - by Lizzaehfritters on March 8th, 2007 02:10 am (UTC)
I love it! I also love the idea of a stealth apostle. The rest of the apostles all flocking around Jesus and him ninj-ing in nearby bushes!
hackmeisterhackmeister on March 8th, 2007 02:44 am (UTC)
I love "ninjing."
Fritters: Ed Thinking by Frittersfritters on March 8th, 2007 06:03 am (UTC)
I considered the more correct term of ninja-ing but it's not as much fun...
hackmeisterhackmeister on March 8th, 2007 07:37 am (UTC)
Ninjing is noodging, only you do it, like, at night, and you sneak up on the noodgee.
Fritters: Gir Beating with text by inane and frittfritters on March 8th, 2007 07:46 am (UTC)
I wanna do that now. I wanna get a bunch of people to hide out in a dark park around a clearing and anytime someone comes close to any of us, we sneak out and poke them once and then run and hide again...
hackmeisterhackmeister on March 8th, 2007 08:00 pm (UTC)
Well, to put a Jewish spin on that, you sneak up and say, "When are you going to get a real job?" or something like that.
postrophe on March 9th, 2007 01:35 am (UTC)
Sounds like a flash-crowd to me... (anyone still doing that?)
Frittersfritters on March 9th, 2007 06:30 am (UTC)
I think it's passe' now. And it would have to be a stealth crowd that only went one at a time...
postrophe on March 10th, 2007 07:10 am (UTC)
If they're ninjas, how would we know if they've stopped?
Frittersfritters on March 10th, 2007 07:40 am (UTC)
No no, WE'D be ninjing. So we'd know if we stopped.
postrophe on March 10th, 2007 07:47 am (UTC)
Only if the ones who were doing it first invited us.
(And since we're talking about it on public LJ I bet we're just not Stealth enough for them...)
Fritters: Cat Goes Pbtht by iconfetishfritters on March 10th, 2007 07:51 am (UTC)
...'cause literally thousands of L.A. residents read my weblog.
postrophe on March 10th, 2007 07:37 pm (UTC)
Ah yes. Your notoriety has been embiggened around these parts.
