Yesterday I was leaving with my mom after her softball game.  One of the teams using the field after us was called "The Benders". They even had a picture of Bender posing on their uniforms. It was hilarious.

Now, that's about the only team I'd want to be on  :)I was looking through my sketchbook and *finnally* cleaning out my backpack and looking through my notebooks the other day. The only thing math class achieved for me was the ability to draw Leela perfectly.  roll eyes

My (annoying) local radio station has 107.7 as its call numbers. Every once in a while, it'll sell concert tickets for $10.77. Whenever it advertises one of those deals, I say, "Same as my pin number," and laugh. Also, the word underpants always reminds me of the commentaries.

We got this pin-up calendar from a local strip club at work (one of my coworkers is a regular visitor). Turns out that the girl featured for August is wearing...something that looks pretty much like Leela's wrestling suit from Jurassic Bark. Except there's more fabric in this one.

Today at work the chef asked me to clean the plastic things hanging over the coolroom door....(they stop flies from getting in)

He called then "flaps" and I immediately thought "Excuse me, I have to go and powder my mouth flaps"  laff

Somewhere Out There

Last time I talked to you,
you were lonely and out of place.

You were looking down on me,
lost out in space.

Laid underneath the stars,
strung out and feeling brave.

Watch the riddles glow,
watch them float away.

Down here in the atmosphere,
garbage and city lights,
you gotta save your tired soul,
you gotta save our lives.

Turn on the radio,
to find you on sattellite,
I'm waiting for the sky to fall,
I'm waiting for a sign.

All we are is all so far.

You're falling back to me,
the star that I can't see.
I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

You're falling out of reach,
defying gravity,
I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

Hope you remember me,
when you're homesick and need a change.
I miss your purple hair,
I miss the way you taste.

I know you'll come back someday,
on a bed of nails awake.
I'm praying that you don't burn out,
or fade away.

All we are is all so far

You're falling back to me,
the star that I can't see.
I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

You're falling out of reach,
defying gravity,
I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

You're falling back to me,
the star that I can't see.
I know you're out there, oh.
You're falling out of reach,
defying gravity....

I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

You're falling back to me,
the star that I can't see.
I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

You're falling out of reach,
defying gravity,
I know you're out there,
somewhere out there.

You're falling back to me.

Well I know,
I know.

You're falling out of reach.

I know...

 

HOLY CRAP!!!! that reminds me of Rye Guy's "The Other"  http://www.leelazone.com.ar/fanfic/the_other-1.shtml

I was making curry, and my mom told me to grab a new jar of curry powder from our pantry, and it turns out the brand was Leela. Plus they included a free spoon taped to the jar so now I have a nice spoon with the name Leela printed on the handle.

Recently, every time someone says anything or if something happens, it reminds me of a Futurama quote. For example, my power went out a few days ago, and it immediately reminded me of "Mother's Day" and Leela's "Leela bring fire?". Don't ask me why...I think I'm going insane (Insane in the mainframe! Oh, crap...)

It's prolly named after Philo (sp?) Farnsworth, the same inventor/scientist the Professor is named after.

Speaking of ... there's a new guy at work with the last name of Farnsworth.  I asked him if I could call him Professor, but the reference was lost on him.   cry

Then your mission is clear:  From now on, always call him Professor.

No matter how much he insists that he's not a professor, no matter how confused he gets, never stop calling him that, and never explain why.

If he asks you to call him by his first name, call him Hubert instead.

When I listen to "Do You Forget About Me" on the radio.

When I read some from Asimov or Red Dwarf or HHGTTG.

Every time I see a new sci-fi movie, I can't help but think that if Futurama was still making new episodes, they would satirize this movie.

He already told me it's OK to call him Professor.  He did say he watches Futurama "very rarely".  Maybe this mission will change that.  Of course I don't want him to hate me.

It's nice to talk to people who get every subtle reference you drop.

A few instances...

A few weeks ago, I was at the bus stop, when I heard some little girl use a word that sounded like "elzar".  To which I said "Bam.", very softly to myself.

While watching the parade of nations at the Olympics a week ago, I was quite disappointed at how there was no athlete from the "Nation of Joe".

Finally, I was watching a commercial for a Volkswagen Passat involving a leaf being blown about quite a lot to the strains of rapid fiddle music.  Of course, I instantly began to think of the Robot Devil, wailing away on his gold fiddle with his three arms.

That's all for now.

Strangely enough, I never connect Emeril and Elzar that easily. The only thing that really reminds me of Futurama is the word "Underpants."

Thats amazing. Every time i talk about him i refer to him as Elzar, not Emeril.

I've been corrected numerous times of course. Once, even by Emeril himself. (But thats another story)

I walked by and told him "Hey Elzar. I like your TV show." Then he turns around while giving some other guy an autograph and says something to the extent of "Thanks, and umm its Emeril by the way.)  laff

Funny as hell and i was laughing the entire day about it.

I could have sworn I told you guys about this story before...

My boss came into the office the other day with some news about a sale. He walked straight in and said 'Good news, everyone...'
I had to sit there biting my tongue whilst he reeled off what he had to say, and the had to fend off constant 'what are you grinning at' comments from my co-workers.

Are you telling the truth, Nasty? 

I'm like that too ... it's actually a big mental effort for me to say "Emeril" rather than "Elzar".  I wonder if Emeril has ever watched an episode of Futurama with Elzar in it.  And, what would he think of the spoof?

That's a great story.  He probably didn't get the reference, and just thought you were some dumbass who couldn't pronounce his name.

My sister got an exercise machine, and I put it together for her.  I really could have used an extra pair of hands while I was doing it, and I kept thinking to myself, "Too bad I'm not Elzar."
