I drove there in the car early in the morning. My fiance Darin surprised me by showing up there to keep me company. I saw his truck in the parking lot, then I saw him, standing outside, waiting for me. I thought that was pretty sweet of him! After we paid the thing off, we headed outside, discussing the possibility of going out to breakfast. Eventually, we just decided to head home and eat breakfast there. We walked over to the truck. He opened the door for me and I hopped in. He then got in the driver's side and started up the truck. We headed out of the parking lot, but then noticed we were heading out the "in" side of the parking lot! We turned around and headed for the exit. It was only then that we drove by the car, sitting there in the parking lot. We had been about to leave in the truck, leaving the car behind!!!!! We had both completely forgotten that we came in two separate vehicles. Gosh, we are just *too* much alike! Hee hee! :) =-=-=-=-=-=-= = OH SNOP!! = =-=-=-=-=-=-= life's little annoyances... Hello. I (melvan) have just come back from the kitchen with a cup of hot chocolate. What makes this so interesting (and snoppish) is that when I went to retrieve it from the microwave, there was hot chocolate all over the bottom of the microwave and the side of the cup. I didn't leave it in there so long that it would have boiled over. The cup wasn't broken. The microwave is just possessed. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= = As the Tractor Burns... = =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= STARRING: Jim Varney - as Raul Hackenspew Roseanne - as Esmerelda O.J. Simpson - as I.M. Gilty Barney the Dinosaur - as Howard Stern Jim Carrey - as Al Rightithen Princess Di - as Buffy Forget everything that has ever happened before on ATTB - because it has absolutely no relevance to what's going to happen this week. This week, the entire cast has been hired to work at Pizza Hut. Howard: Uh...why are we in a restaurant? Al: We're supposed to be working, I think. I.M.: What's work? Howard: I don't know, but it beats drowning in Mountain Dew. Buffy: Hey, where *is* the Mountain Dew? Esmerelda: Men suck.* Raul: What did we do to you?* Esmerelda: Everything.* Raul: What did I personally do to you today?* Esmerelda: I didn't say you were a man.* Raul: But I'm part of the sub-species.* Buffy: I just lost a screw!* Manager: OK, Al, take this pizza to the prison. You have to go down a hall, and at the end of the hall there's a door. Go through the door, and there's a pay phone on the wall. Call 911 and the lady will come out and get the pizza.* Al: Uh...okay... I.M.: You see, I was born with a big rake in my head...* Buffy: Wow, your mother must have been in a LOT of pain... That concludes this week's issue of ATTB...join us next week (or whenever) when Buffy eats a paperclip and sets off a metal detector in the airport. *Actual quotes from people at Pizza Hut (most of them on the night of March 5, 1997) =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= = Editor's Reccomendations... = =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= We reccomend that you force your friends, family members, enemies, co-workers, teachers, students, and/or parole officers to subscribe to FME. We also reccomend that if you live in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area in Minnesota that you check out a local band called Pegtop. They have a new cd called "The Great Reverse" which melvan just got in the mail yesterday and can't quit listening to. Perhaps it would help if she turned off the cd player... =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= = URGENT FME NEWS = =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= You may have noticed that FME hasn't dropped into your mailbox in the last few weeks. There is a very good explanation for this, and as soon as we make it up, we'll tell you. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= = Fruit Bats in Your Toilet = =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= *** If you have lunacy you'd like publicized, we'll do it for free!
