Farewell Tim & Steve

Got back a little while ago from bluedevilsf's apartment where he and Steve were packing the last of Tim's stuff for their big move to Minnesota. Also present were sfmini, furfairy, and bearbrat. Tim gave us many bottles of champagne and wine that he didn't want to move, and let us select from his discard pile. We acquired

  • A violin (rootbeer1 and I both took lessons as kids)

  • A pair of black Frye boots

  • An Irish tweed cap, French beret and black leather baseball cap

  • Several nice books (including The Gay Kama Sutra -- woohoo!!)

  • A brand-new iron

  • Several cans of tomato paste

  • Vertigo tarot card deck


And a few other sundry items. We said goodbye--they'll be back to visit in the Marcia Brady Guest Room™ someday, but we will miss them.

Our good friends Dave and Vic, who moved back to Connecticut last march, are in town and staying with us for a few days. Tonight we're having dinner with them and ricksf and pseudocub1.

Last night we watched the screen tests fron Strait-Jacket again (Get the axe!!!!) and two episodes of Lost in Space. rootbeer1 had to leave the room because it was so hokey, but I loved LinS when I was a kid. Dr. Smith is such a nelly queen--I love it when he calles the robot a ninny or my favorite, "bubble-headed booby."

He gave away the Violin? I though Tim was gonna learn to play that. Well, at least I played it for him once, and even Tuned it for him.

I was fairly surprised he did that too.

I tuned it up when we got home, and played Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

I too loved Lost In Space as a kid. I thought Bill Mumy was so cool to have a robot.

I loved that show too. I still kinda enjoy watching it, the hokier the episode the better (the one with the vegetables on a rampage or the one where Will and Penny become hippies are classics).

I love the vegetable one, too, and the one where the robot grows to giant size, and they all go inside him. Unfortunately, they're not in the first searson. But I'm sure I'll be getting subsequent seasons as they're released. You'll have to come over for a marathon!

I'm beginning to think Tim isn't moving anything at all, from what I heard he's gotten rid of everything except his clothes.

He moved comic books, CDs and DVDs. Oh, and the XBox. Not much else. Priorities LOL

Whoops--forgot to reply to this.

They're coming back from Planet Big now, and will be here for the evening. They leave tomorrow morning for Palm Springs. C'mon over if you like...:o)

Re: That blasted robot...
Yay!
Hi, I'm Beast, and I love Lost in Space.
Sure, it got REALLY silly after the first season, but there were some touching stories in the first season, like Penny's invisible friend Mr. Nobody, and the boy in the mirror.

Remember when the robot dressed up in drag?

Re: That blasted robot...
LOL! I forgot about the robot in the gingham dress!

How about Dr. Smith with big muscles and curly hair? Or did I hallucinate that?
