    Did Daniel Craig help buy you the Home Depot gift certificate to purchase the necessary tools for a mouse free house? Or did you just throw a roll of quarters into one of your socks?

  2. egan says:

    L – I’m very impressed by your mad skills. It sure was great to meet you last night. I love the petit cadeau you gave me. Oh, the 2.0 shirt is the shit. 2.0 definitely seems like a keeper.

  3. The Grunt says:

    I thought the last one was a Chinese dishwasher, but I think I got it straightened out in my head.

  4. egan says:

    The Grunt – are you calling me Chinese? Not that there’s anything wrong with being Chinese. Many of my best friends are Chinese.

  5. mez says:

    it’s sort of like the da vinci code!

  6. egan says:

    Mez – very good comparison except there’s no cute French brunette. A man can rêve.

  7. Trick says:

    I didn’t see Belbin in there anywhere?????

  8. egan says:

    Trick – man, you’re right. Do you suppose she can be wrapped in a box and stuck under a tree?

  9. Trick says:

    I suppose, as long as you poke some air holes in it

  10. egan says:

    Trick – you are so humane.

  11. Chris says:

    Not fair mixing French in there! Daniel Craig – hmmmmm.
    Be sure the new car stereo has some form of direct input and/or control for the iPod/iPod shuffle.

  12. Jennifer says:

    Turn about being fair play, you lost me at akfjakdjfakjfdkjfakdfjiPodShuffle.
    Hold me forever!

  13. sprizee says:

    This is my favorite post. The “funk soul booya” towards the end was a nice touch. Well done.

  14. *pixie* says:

    Please elaborate on:
    sock sak and other various clothing items such as gin chad

  15. Amanda says:

    My eyes hurt. Did you write in French for a few of those?

  16. L says:

    Hey, waitaminute…you snuck some French in there.

  17. Margaret says:

    Why do you need a but washing machine? What are you doing to your dishes?

  18. Jennifer says:

    Please elaborate on:
    ‘Daniel Craig sitting on my lap.’

  19. Tall Chick says:

    Oh Baby! Daniel Craig gets double billing as it should be. Was that for me? I think I love you.
    Egan ne plus d’argent. ^_^
    Did you buy the elliptical trainer so that you can look like Daniel Craig?
    Where did you find your socks exactly? Stuffed in your trousers?
    In college, my panties fell out of my pants leg once while I was booking along to my next class. I was so confused. But I guess that’s a blogpost in itself.

  20. The Real Me says:

    Christmas list, Egan?

  21. egan says:

    Chris – yep, this is why I want a new stereo for the Subaru. Tapes are so 80s.
    Jennifer – the new iPod Shuffle makes me hard.
    Sprizee – check it out now…
    *pixie* – ha, that’s “ginch” thank you very much. Ginch is also known as tighty whities.
    Amanda – mais oui. I did write some stuff in French to fool the masses.
    L – I’m crafty like that. We don’t need to discuss the French ones though. They don’t mean anything.
    Margaret – I was really hoping nobody would ask that question. Next!
    Jennifer – you’re back and you have a very keen eye. I saw the new Bond flick over the weekend. Can you imagine a naked Daniel Craig sitting on your lap?
    Tall Chick – yes, it was just for you. I can’t stop thinking about the one torture scene in the movie. Ouch and ouch again. I would never stuff my trousers. Oh my Candace. You must post that panty store of yours. I’m very interested in how this garment malfunction happened.
    The Real Me – mon dieu, elle vit. Oui, it’s a Christmas list of sorts.

  22. Christmas list – I knew it!

  23. Tall Chick says:

    It is a tale for the telling, but not as interesting as it first seems it should be. It certainly gave me a shock, though, at the time.
    Ouch, and double O ouch.
    You are lovely, argentless though you may be, because you care.
    I forgot to congratulate you on your new indentured servant, so Congratulations! ^_^ I love my servants. The environment smiles because you care enough to conserve water and electricity in this fashion. Isn’t it great to be able to feel good about something new like that?
    I don’t want to know what you did to the poor defenseless mousie. When we went canoeing in the boundary waters, I made friends with a wee little tiny mouse named Henry. He would come to my hand for Cheerios™, which looked like donuts in his tiny little mousie hands. It pains me that you have coldly smashed the brains out of his cousin, Frederick.

  24. Tall Chick says:

    Oh, silly, silly me. Barbara must be right. It’s a good list. DC tops mine. ^_^

  25. Tall Chick says:

    PS, what are you planning to do with the kine? Are you buying a wagon to pull?

  26. egan says:

    Barbara – hello and welcome to my blog. Yep, it’s a Christmas list.
    Tall Chick – what’s all this servant talk? Are we talking about mice as servants? 00Ouch. Thank me later for that one.
    Tall Chick – there wasn’t an order to this list and it isn’t complete.
    Tall Chick – kine? I had to look that one up. You can tell I didn’t grow up on a farm. I will be a huge mother fucking SUV to move them.

  27. jenny says:

    I’m afraid this question might get me banned from your blog but… who’s daniel craig?
    (and yes, i’m just too lazy to google it…)

  28. Tall Chick says:

    OMG, the poor snake! I’ll kiss it better. You’re a good man, Egan. Did you pretend Mads Mikkelson was activating the trap? Did you laugh in his face while he tortured you?
    No, not mice. Indentured servants to do the washing and drying of clothes an ddishes.

  29. egan says:

    Jenny – Daniel Craig is the new Bond, James Bond. He was also in Munich. Three things that make him pretty hot: his accent, his abs, and his eyes. Now you’re informed Jen. I’m glad you asked.
    Tall Chick – did you see that Candace? Jenny didn’t know of Daniel Craig. Good thing I asked you about him 10-12 months ago. Oh, those servants. I got it. Nope, dishes are typically my chore. Torturing is good.

  30. Cheryl says:

    am i to assume that you currently do not have a mouse-free house? yikes.

  31. my head hurts.
    my eyes hurt, too.
    you have too much time my friend.

  32. Tall Chick says:

    I was ignoring it, Egan. My brain refused to believe it. He’s prolly most famous for Layer Cake, though that may not have gotten a ton of press in this country. Maybe more of a cult film? I dunno.
    Yes, those servants. I have one that sings to me and plays instruments at me as well. I think my favourite is the laundress, but the scullery maid is pretty damn appreciated. Also the conkle machine. you never realise how much you love your conkle machine until you stay at the home of someone who lives like the pioneers and doesn’t actually have one. Suddenly you’re faced with dilemmas like “What do I do with these soggy Cheerios floating in this leftover milk? I can’t throw it all in the trash, and I can’t put it down the drain. They have no dog on whom to foist them. Dear God. What do I do?!?!”
    I won’t say too much more, as I understand you haven’t actually got a conkle machine in your sink. Wake up and smell the aughts, Egan. Or, heck, the 80s!

  33. ChickyBabe says:

    A blonde Bond does nothing for me! (yet to see the movie though)

  34. Curare_Z says:

    This is my favorite post of yours yet. I sometimes feel like a dishwasher that is not me, but is a machine.

  35. Nessa says:

    Look I have enough problems with dyslexia. Are you insane doing this to me? And I read the whole thing.

  36. Mone says:

    dish dish dish
    dish dish dish
    dish dish dish

  37. Jill says:

    I see Daniel Craig. I love Daniel Craig. I also love Egan.

  38. col says:

    Clearly you are fixing a door.

  39. egan says:

    Cheryl – at roughly 1:23pm on 12/2/06 a mouse was spotted by Mrs. Lessinges just before I was about to go on a bike ride. She vacated the basement, I went for my bike ride and it wasn’t until last night that my wife revisited the basement. I’ve put out traps and repellent, but haven’t seen Scrooge McMouse yet. For the record, I do not like mice.
    Michelle – how is this too much time? This post took me about 7 minutes, tops.
    Tall Chick – Layer Cake? Nobody will remember him for Layer Cake in this country 5-10 years from now. Heck nobody knows him from that now except you. Conkle machine?
    ChickyBabe – that’s blasphemous. Just because he’s blonde? Huh, if you see his abs and his abs you might change your mind. The dude is cut. Oh, I know you don’t like celebrities too.
    Curare_Z – just this morning I was Mr. Maytag. It would be so much nicer if I could simply stick them in the dishwasher and call it good.
    Nessa – I knew you had dyslexia which is exactly why I posted this.
    Mone – that sounds vaguely like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer’s song.
    Jill – you’re too sweet. Mr. Craig and I have much in common.
    Col – my days of fixing doors are over, especially refrigerator ones.

  40. *pixie* says:

    I can honestly say I’ve never heard the term “ginch” before.

  41. egan says:

    *pixie* – what? You’re clearly not Canadian then. How about “gitch”? You do know “tighty whities” right?

  42. *pixie* says:

    I do know “tighty whities” but not “gitch” or “ginch”. Clearly not Canadian.

  43. egan says:

    *pixie* – I’m not Canadian either, but I know a few who are Canadian. My buddy is from Vancouver B.C. and he used “ginch” all the time. “The Ginch Who Stole Christmas”.

  44. kim says:

    so you want daniel craig and a dishwasher? now my head hurts cuz i read this before coffee

  45. kim says:

    so you want daniel craig and a dishwasher? now my head hurts cuz i read this before coffee

  46. kim says:

    ugh ..i hate verification thingys cuz now ive done it twice !

  47. egan says:

    Kim – well, I’m not gay, but this dude sure is a looker. I think he’s a superdopefly Bond, James Bond.
    Kim – yes, I heard you the first time.

  48. egan says:

    Kim – extra comments are cherished here. I have no qualms about someone double posting. It’s all good.

  49. vera says:

    you’re ever so clever…

  50. i meant too much time to think of it. but then again, when you consider the source…

  51. Fitèna says:

    Mon Dieu,
    faites que Egan trouve un boulot où il gagnera plus d’argent.
    PS: I have a postal card for you.

  52. egan says:

    Vera – I suppose you could call it clever. I thought it was a rather lazy excuse for a post.
    Michelle – it took me very little time to think of it. It’s a technique I use for instant messaging. It what all the cool bloggers do.
    Fitena – tu as une carte postale pour moi? Hey, est-que tu sais l’emission The Amazing Race? Ils sont alles votre pays. Je suis fier de savoir une personne qui habite la. Oui, je voudrais gagner plus d’argent. Un jour ca va ce passe.

  53. Fitena says:

    Oui je connais! lol! Ah je suis fière que tu sois fier d’être fier de connaître quelqu’un ici=MOI!
    Oui, envoie mon ton addresse!
