    I have enough kids for the both of us, but I have to tell you that if you are anything in real life like you are on the MDA, then you would make the most awesome daddy, canio.

      Awww. That is very nice of you to say

      I am actually shooting for 'cool uncle' but that would require my brother or sisters to get the ball rolling.

      • Hey naiad!

        I wanted to come to your place and say thanks for that offer to do lessons with us! At the moment, we are good, but if it is okay, can I take you up on that in a few months if it comes up??

        I had to laugh out loud at the dog wash, too... and I actually like animals.

        Re engineers - my best friend is the current "Director, Capital Projects" for the town of Leesburg VA. Lady went to school and got her degree in geotechnical engineering, then went and worked for ODOT (the OH Dept of Transportation), just like her daddy. Then she got sick, sick, sick of ODOT and left the state for the South. I remember when she went to Norway to learn all about landslides, and when she came to visit me while I was still living in Germany the woman didn't take pics of the pretty scenery - she took pics of each and every road construction and skyscraper building site we came across. She was so funny - for two weeks every other sentence was "Crabbcakes, do you SEE that!?!? That is called a blah-blah-blah and they are not normally used/done that way in the US! Here is how it works (explanation follows...)! I can't wait to show my engineering friends this!"

        And it is not Third's week... She started puking in the wee hours if this morning. When it rains...

        • I want the opportunity to be the "cool aunt" but am happy with getting Hulky's nephews and niece by marriage. I'm terrified of what might happen if my sister spawned but I think I could be an awesomely corrupting force.

          • Ooh! One more story (yeah, I gab)...

            On that NPR radio show Car Talk a long time ago, there was this caller who wanted to know if catalytic converters blew up, like on their own, just as you start a car. Long story short, the caller had recently gotten a new neighbor, and was kinda being a dick (the caller, not the new neighbor) and the new neighbor just happened to be a retired Navy ordnance specialist. Ummm... Car Talk guys impressed upon the dick caller the need to be nice to the noob.

            Moral of the story - everybody needs an ordnance guy (or gal) as a friend.

            • Canio- Yes, you would make a cool uncle. Your siblings need to get that ball rolling. We did try calling the cops and were told to call animal services. You get one call to animal services and then are told it needs to become a civil case before they'll do anything else.
              Crabb- if you and your kids still want the lessons, I'm more than willing to offer them. My only hedge on that is that I work 8-5 central time, so we'd hafta work around both y'all's and my schedule. Geek and the Guys have all given me grief over my reaction to construction. Everyone else is irritated, I'm trying to figure out exactly what they're doing and "hey, that's wrong!" If a new building goes up, I ogle it every time I go by. I someone puts in a detention basin ("Water feature" nowadays in ealtor speak), I could just stand there all day, mesmerized. I was the engineer the City sent out for storm events to see how the drainage system handled it (answer: it didn't.) To my knowledge, the ijits next door aren't anything special, just your average entitled assholes.
              Nameless- I'd love to see you as a corrupting factor! Geek and I already are for niece, and I can see you filling that role easily.

              I feel better and less homicidal after breakfast (another spinach and bacon fauxrito.)

              • It could be just as much fun to pour sugar on the ground right outside their gas tank and watch them freak out.
                Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

                If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

                • These ijits are stupid enough to assume that would mean we automatically did something and retaliate. I'd rather Fogging Molly NOT get attacked.

                  • Not to mention vanadlizing someone's car is illegal. Destruction of property if nothing else - ticket, paying for repairs, etc.

                    I'm also not sure what you would need to prove to make a civil suit worthwhile.

                    A very crappy situation indeed.

                      It's not worth the lawyer fees when these jackasses would just ignore whatever the judge says anyways. Hence the Over the fence warfare. I really tempted to go at it the slow and cruel way: toss flour and sugar based doggy treats and dog friendly candy over the fence whenever it's outside and not barking, thereby giving it positive reinforcement and eventually diabetes/ obesity. Dalmations are prone to hip displaysia too, which exacerbated by obesity. I think the little Pomeranians would gobble them down too, so it'd catch the whole damn family.

                      • Here ya go. A big old bag of steaming dog poo on the front porch. That could lead to neighborhood harmony. Otherwise you could just do what Clint does and calls all of our neighbors douchebags.

                        • All this fun neighbor talk makes me want to run out and buy house.

                          • We're fine with our neighbors, if that helps!

                            • We actually like [almost] everyone else on the block. ( The old couple across the way, while we don't actively hate them, we don't like them either.) For the most part with these ijits, we call them every name in the book and hose their dogs down. If they come into my yard, I do my best to get outside and punt it. (I have only so far succeeded in a grazing kick to the dalmatian's head.)
                              I would just buy a sonic dog whistle and leave it on, if it weren't for the Froot Loop and Geek. (A dog whistle is close enough to his hearing range that he gets a headache when we left the last experiment going.)

                                Then obviously you need to buy a barking dog.
