Worthy Surfers Who Wiped Out Here

  • Chris
    Yet another sign that the next generation brings hope. Has his soon-to-be-jar head screwed on straight, with a strong sense of duty and humor. Not necessarily in that order.
  • D C Thornton

  • Jenny & Geoff
    Attesting to the international appeal of this humble blog, this couple from Australia stopped by. Just pronouncing "Mulubinba" makes me feel like I've gone down under.
  • Suzette
    Very much the Fabulist, and a fairly prodigious blogger, Suzette can prepare to entertain and provide the entertainment. Join her retinue.
  • Tvindy

  • stupidangrycanajun
    I think "canajun" is a phonetic corruption of the Canadian pronunciation of "canadian," and I just can't pass that up.
  • Sarah
    I think she just wishes she was a geek. Seems normal to me, but then, consider the source.

  • Rockynoggin
    Even official, properly elucidated Monkey Business is still monkey business.

Ok, but will you sprinkle pee on their toilet seats? Use the last of their paper and not replace the empty roll? Get in their cars, tune the radio to a heavy metal station, and turn the volume all the way up so as to scare the bejeebiss out of the next person to turn the ignition?


M4C just got back from a week at Crazy Grandma's in Alabama and has to be deprogrammed. It seems that she is under the impression that she will have everything her way, immediately, with only a minimum of politeness and a maximum of whininess required to have us bending to her evil will.


Dave, I think I'll skip the sprinkling ritual, but I shall most assuredly get in their cars to heavily meddle with the sound cistern, plus reposition every seat, wheel and mirror and, for the coupe de gras, siphon out several gallons of gasoline.

CC, clearly not all of the Grandest Generation are as concerned about committment issues. You think they've got any notes on their techniques they'd be willing to share? They sound terrilby effective. Heh, heh heh.

I would stick with the sweetest revenge of all. I will reveal to you what I did with my own dear brother's children. After getting many hints for tasteful and educational gifts from him and his wife, I came up with the following plan. Gifts should:

1) Have as many pieces as possible, preferably small. Lots of pieces.**
2) Make noise. The louder the better
3) Use batteries.

Any of these three make for preferable gifts for young children. A combination of any or all three - priceless.

One Christmas I bought a big Hess firetruck for my nephew that had lots of little things that went with it. Even better - really loud assorted siren sounds. I inserted the batteries and glued the door shut before wrapping. Perfect.

There are ways. There are ways.

**Think mega boxes of legos. Many many legos.


And be sure that THOSE are the toys that will go to YOUR house when the grandkids come for a visit.
~~~~~~~~~evil grin.


When Hubster's nieces were younger, he babysat them whilst the parents went for a weekend. Then in the airport feed them large quantities of Mtn Dew, sugared candy, chocolate; let them run on the Moving Sidewalks. Then left them with their parents.

He'd also go visit them. When he'd leave, he'd be about to close the door and apologize for not playing Ring Around the Rosey with them...

He's evil.

The thermostat tinkering is a fantastic way to exact your revenge - especially the programmable kind. Or, kinder still, replace existing thermostat with a programmable. If they have one that can be adjusted over the internets, that's the gift that keeps on giving.
