I'm even boring myself these days.
Find a new socket.
Old people are boring since they are too wise to do anything dumb. Hence the goal of life is to always find just one more light socket to stick a fork into.
That's an idea. Hmmm. What insane project can I take on for the summer????
Oh, excellent! I'd forgotten that we'd already committed to one. When do we start?
Step One: Brush up on your curse words. ;-)
I've been trying my dangdest to keep my cool on the course, but now that the number of good shots I'm hitting outweighs the number of bad, the bad shots really tick me off.
Silly, I know.
Luckily, my wife usually the only person who can hear me cursing my lame-ness under my breath.
Excellent. That's a skill I possess surpassingly well. [g]
Keep spreading the wisdom, man :-)

you seldom bore me... so it must just be a phase! ;)
Continue kicking ass (and grabbing your fun and interesting where you can). It'll pay off.
what is this "even"? you're not boring me at all.
and, here, if you want boring -- i swear an e-mail i just sent to ellen_fremedon
contained the following:
Say, can you tell me something about autosegmental phonology? Why is [kattab] okay but [*katbab] barred? I'm sure I knew once, but I have this textbook now telling me "a special rule allows [kattab] but bars [*katbab] - for further details see Goldsmith 1976", which I don't have to hand at the moment. It seems to fly in the face of the left-to-right association, doesn't it? I mean, if you have CVCCVC on the skeletal tier, and [ktb] as the root, and [a] as the melody, and you associate left to right, you *should* get [katbab], and the fact that you don't can't really have anything to do with illegal crossing of lines, because the vowel is up top and the consonants down below, so there's no lines to cross at this stage. It's on the tip of my mental tongue, something about gemination, but I can't quite pin it down, and it's making me crazy.
Wow. It mostly looks like English....
I'm feeling that way today, and my Friends List is completely lacking today, too, so maybe it's something that's going around.
You are still on my Flist, therefore, you are interesting. Uninteresting people do NOT last long, trust me:-)
Short term attention span, ya know.
I know what you mean. I bore myself too. I think this is a burnout syndrome of some sort...
You are *not* boring!
Thanks for all the fitness tips along the way.
