Pillows still looking as flat as the land. How's your neck holding up?

Aren't you glad you get to travel with us, Snag?!?!

Mandos said...

Why do all motels have the same colour duvets? A weird dark purple pattern. Dare I take a guess?

Jennifer said...

CAUSE THEY'RE CHEAP AND STUCK IN THE 80's!!!

And no,it's not to hide bloodstains, although...

Objection. You can't know that.

Jennifer said...

Let's all pitch in so Snag can buy a black light and take a picture of the room illuminated only with that... then we'll see how much blood, etc, etc, etc, is in there.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

heavy on the etc., I would think...

Snag said...

Blood is a more flexible term than you might imagine.

Vercingetorix said...

It appears that no trace of spring is interfering with the unadulterated oppressiveness of your peregrinations.

Adorable Girlfriend said...

Still at the Hampton, huh?

Also a good description of that movie in your avatar....

Brando said...

Not pictured: John Candy.

I love that movie.

Snag said...

One of my favorite movie lines ever- "And by the way, you know, when you're telling these little stories? Here's a good idea - have a POINT. It makes it SO much more interesting for the listener."

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

You have a point, Snag?

Snag said...

No, not really. Just kind of killing time. Never mind.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Hey, don't you have a new hideous soul-deadening roadside internment facility to go to?

Jennifer said...

Hey, don't insult Snag's house!

Jennifer said...

Snag- when you were on the road did anyone yell at you, "YOU'RE GOING THE WRONG WAY!!! YOU'RE GOING TO KILL SOMEBODY!!!"???

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

I was more referring to the motels, Jennifer.

But now that you mention it, One might think that a successful professional, father, and pillar of the community like Mr. Snag might be wanting to investigate the potential of having a sustainable, attractive, functional, and amenable domicile designed for his lovely family.

If only one could identify a qualified house designer....

Did I also mention that Snag is a scholar, with impeccable taste in food, drink, and children's books?

Jennifer said...

I know...

fish said...

ZRM, don't forget to include a room with the rotating knives.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

it'll be stainless steel, fish.

sushi!

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

"YOU'RE GOING THE WRONG WAY!!! YOU'RE GOING TO KILL SOMEBODY!!!"???

Holy hell, you just summed up my life. Call the granite guys, have my tombstone inscribed.

Brando said...

Hey, don't insult Snag's house!

Now that is a zinger.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

no insult was intended.

Jeez, you'd think I made a pubic hair comment.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Brando, don't you have a Whitesnake retrospective to watch?

Jennifer said...

Brando, don't you have a Whitesnake retrospective to watch?

LOL!!!

Also... apparently stainless steel knives are ok for ZRM, but not stainless steel sinks.

And I'm sure ZRM meant no insult... but if I recall from last year's trip, Snag heads home for the weekend, so hotel hell will have to wait for a couple of days.

And I should get back to the alphabet.

Jennifer said...

I don't have a clue...

see, now that is information that a zombie could have used a couple of comments ago....

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

well, obviously. There's a functional aspect to this. I'm not opposed to Stainless in the proper context. See Texas Chainsaw Massacre for more information....

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Grammar-Spelling Zombie approves.

Jennifer said...

If you paid attention last year, ZRM, you would have remembered. Why do you hate Snag???

What kind of trip through hell lets you go home on weekends?

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Zombeez got no long term memory capacity....

Jennifer said...

I think he's merely on hell probation.

Kathleen said...

frolicking in the comment thread continues unabated

Righteous Bubba said...

Orange Swish Chubbies for all.

Snag said...

Two points.

First, what makes anyone think a weekend at home is a respite for me?

Second, the only thing I need more than an architect is a banker.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Second, the only thing I need more than an architect is a banker.

Having a barbecue? Or a Banker-based pork explosion?

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Maybe a pork-based Banker explosion....

Mandos said...

I'm presently reading John Barnes' "Hive" series of SF, wherein banking is referred to as one of the ancient horrors of medieval America.

Snag said...

More like someone to finance the wondrous architectural dreams, preferably with a mortgage that will outlive me.
