Roll 'em

Our DVD player is dead, or meditating, or sulking, or something. Whatever, it's not working right, occasionally denying a DVD is wedged in its little slot despite demonstrable evidence to the contrary. My theory is it's offended by my using this photo in the header here a few days ago.

Sometimes it plays, sometimes it won't, so now besides trying to find a movie R Man and I both are interested in (a difficult enough proposition,) I have to include the DVD player's sensibilities in the decision making process. "Animated? What, are you six years old? Do you want a pony for Christmas, too?"

Maybe it's feelings are hurt that I only watch porn on the computer. The petty jealousy of household appliances. I don't think I can stand it.


  1. Time for a system upgrade me thinks...take a moment of all the happy wanks its inspired and the many inventive porn titles its played.

  2. Our microwave is in an ongoing highschool girl-esque feud with the toaster oven.
    It's a nightmare trying to make breakfast in the morning.

  3. So, it was my Hubby's birthday & we were watching TV (we're old at heart) & I'm having ice cream for the fist time in months & the Pioneer big screen just goes dark and dies. And I knew it was the ice cream & making the darned thing play Billy Banks work out tapes.

  4. maybe it's simply reminding you that we've got a recession going on and it's time to do your part and buy, buy, buy.

    ours did.

  5. Are DVD players still relevant? Not being a bitch but doesn't Tivo provide shit on demand? I dunno cuz in my divorced state I don't have either and watch movies (and porn) via my computer.

  6. Perhaps it enjoys having its little slot wedged.

  7. Insolence from appliances is very frustrating.

  8. Go have a good long look at the coffee maker. There's your culprit.


In Which We Writ Small

  The recent chill and wet weather has conspired to make my nose run like it's being paid overtime.  It flows pretty much year round any...
