Botch-fest 022

While in a structure north of the intersection, the sound of screeching tires will be a memory of this afternoon. Kitto I must write a disclaimer about the strong language that will soon appear in this post.
Is default deadline truly Aug 2?
“For weeks, President Barack Obama and Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner have stressed that the U.S. Treasury will run out of room to borrow funds next Tuesday and have warned of dire consequences if Congress does not raise the nation’s $14.3 trillion debt ceiling in time.”

You can walk or deny 006

Although their plots are rather similar, Cowboys & Aliens was better than Battlefield Earth. Amazingly, jokes shown in the preview for Horrible Bosses were still funny when the feature was finally presented me at the Boulevard Drive-In Theatre. My issues of Road & Track, Motor Trend, and Automobile arrived today.

Stale zaniness 010

While at South Park Studios, I clicked on an ad for Shutterfly, which reminded me of the following words from another friend, and simultaneously reminded my mildly dyslexic mind of Fluttershy from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
“Christopher, ... you have ALWAYS been kind, understanding, generous of heart and humorous in our correspondence and discussions. YOU have intregrity, faith, a standard of kindness to all people and honestly... I think you remind people to be kind, period.”
Wow, What A Great Audience.
I can also find solace in the following.

Celebratory note 013

On Wednesday night, the Roving Imp Theater had a third successive, and successful, show at the Great Mall of the Great Plains.
Roving Imp Theater
“Join RI Spectacular as they entertain mall rats of all ages - and you! Two hours of funny await you at the Great Mall of the Great Plains - and it’s all FREE!”
Wow, we had a really great crowd with challenging suggestions for the game ‘voice mail,’ and really great sets overall.

Need to read again 018

Guess we didn’t have anything to say yesterday so come talk to us in the forums, maybe we’ll have something to say there.
“Leave for me a ONE word comment that best describes me using the THIRD letter of your LAST NAME. It can only be ONE word. Then copy and paste this to your Wall so I can leave a word about you.”
“You [copied it]?”

“I did, yes.”

“What about all that talk, ‘I usually do not update
my status with any statements
that I have been asked
to set as my status on Facebook’?”

“Well, I figured, ‘What the hell.’”

In all likelihood, I will ultimately have received no responses. John recently set his status to something similar to the following:
My actor: Drew Barrymore
Movie that I loved: Donnie Darko
Movie that I liked: Titan A.E.
Movie that I kind of liked: EverAfter
Movies in which I have seen Drew Barrymore: 10
Click ‘Like’ and I’ll give you an actor!
OK OK OK, the preceding was actually my response to John, and I never did set my reply as my status. At least half of the movies, in which I have seen Barrymore, are not live action; she was a voice. In the summer of 1997, I was an intern for a seasonal project at a printing company, and one of my regrets is that I did not support a co-worker when he said that he found Demi Moore the most appealing, or most hot, as Esmeralda in The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
2-D Lovers to World: Yeah, my Girlfriend is a Pillowcase — What’s it to You
“ blogger Josh Clark writes about the Japanese subculture of 2-D lovers.”
Although my friend Denton had an appointment with an electrician Tuesday, I could have resumed my plans to go to the 75th Street Brewery before the Roving Imp Theater, but I made myself late by watching STEINS;GATE on Crunchyroll.
“I have a personal favor....only some of you will do it, and I know who you are. If you know someone who fought Cancer and won, or fought Cancer and died, please add this as your status for 1 hour as a mark of respect and in remembrance. I hope I was right about the people who will.”
Thank you for your time.

Rockin’ the Casbah

This post is so called because of The Clash (see what I did there?) which continues in Washington. I would like to place blame with president One Big Ass Mistake America and ask:
Is Obama a pathological liar? - Washington Times
“In the weird world that is Washington, men and women say things daily, hourly, even minutely, that they know deep down are simply not true. Inside the Beltway, we all call those utterances ‘rhetoric.’ But across the rest of the country, plain ol’ folk call ‘em lies.”
Yesterday evening, my family was watching NCIS upstairs on USA Network, I briefly switched over to ABC to see if they would next be watching Castle, but a prime-time address was airing.
Obama Is Losing the Debt War, and So Is Boehner
“Monday’s dueling addresses on the debt limit indicate not only that Obama is losing the argument for endless deficit spending, but that Boehner is losing too. by Thomas R. Eddlem”
You gotta know, I quickly switched back to Top Gear on BBC America.
George Soros says that America must give up the dollar and accept world currency
“George Soros has changed over time from renegade financier, to kingmaker, to now a spokesman for the coming global order. In the early 1990s Soros nearly bankrupted...”
Right now, my voice might sound horrible, but at least I am self-less. The following song is so dedicated to Soros:
Cee Lo Green - FUCK YOU (Official Video)
“Watch the video for Cee Lo Green’s massive single ‘Fuck You!’, the first single from the brand new album The Lady Killer UK Fans can buy ‘The Lady Killer’ ...”
Although quite exhausted from illness, I should feel better with everything that I bought at CVS. There will be peace in the valley for me, someday.

JCCC, a great college for which to work

JCCC named by Chronicle of Higher Education
as great college to work for

“Johnson County Community College is one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to a survey conducted by The Chronicle of Higher Education.

JCCC was recognized as such in three categories: professional/career development programs; facilities, workspaces and security; and job satisfaction. The college was also recognized as a great college to work for in 2009.

The results, released today in The Chronicle’s fourth annual report on the academic workplace, are based on a survey of nearly 44,000 employees at 310 colleges and universities.

In all, only 111 of the 310 institutions received ‘Great College to Work For’ recognition for specific best practices and policies. Results are reported for small, medium and large institutions, with JCCC included among the large institutions with 10,000 or more students.

‘While we appreciate the recognition, that’s not the real goal,’ said Terry Calaway, JCCC president. ‘Our goal is to create a campus community that values the needs and contributions of every employee so that we establish a great atmosphere for learning. In that sense everyone at JCCC helps make this a great place to work.’

The survey results are based on a two-part assessment process: an institutional audit that captured demographics and workplace policies from each institution and a survey administered to faculty, administrators and professional support staff. The primary factor in deciding whether an institution received recognition was employee feedback.

To administer the survey and analyze the results, the Chronicle worked with Modern Think LLC, a strategic human capital consulting firm that has conducted numerous ‘Best Places to Work’ programs nationwide.

Additional information about the Great Colleges to Work For program may be found here.”

Juneau, Idaho

One of my default tabs in Google Chrome is Pandora, so my listening does not always occur while my Motorola Droid 2 is in the Multimedia Station for DROID by Motorola. Without being completely convinced of the virtues of Pandora One, my listening came with many commercials for Farmers Insurance.
University of Farmers - Auto Insurance, Home Insurance, Life Insurance & Business Insurance
“Get the facts on auto insurance at University of Farmers. Learn more about home, life and business insurance with videos, interactive quizzes and insurance fact sheets.”
I would like to say the following as a character, “This is Customer Care Associate Karen, how may I help y’all today?”
2-D Lovers to World: Yeah, my Girlfriend is a Pillowcase — What’s it to You
“ blogger Josh Clark writes about the Japanese subculture of 2-D lovers.”
David made a correct observation about songs about love, and furthermore:
South Park: Christian Rock Hard - Replace Darling & Baby with Jesus
“Cartman decides that the best way to write music is by taking existing songs and change certain lyrics to ‘Jesus.’”
Wow, I really do not miss driving through the Country Club Plaza at night.

This is senseless 008

This is senseless.
Massachusetts man who bought lemon trashes seven cars
“CONWAY, Mass (Reuters) - A man angry that a car dealership refused to take back a lemon van he had purchased, intentionally crashed it into seven parked vehicles, police said on Thursday.”

Summary of Improv Goals 005

Saturday at 7:00 p.m. is the Robot Parade, my class show, so please come and see the unexpected at the Roving Imp in Bonner Springs!
As often as I do improv each week, one would assume that I would update the summary of my goals for my improv more often, and much time has passed since the last update.
I am in the second season of the Next Big Improv Show, and the last time I so summarized my improv goals was the day of my first performance in the first season of the Next Big Improv Show. The most important work that I have done is having an emotion toward the other player.

Julie, who was teaching the class in the stead of John on Tuesday, commented that although I do angry rants well, I should not make a habit of them. In a subsequent scene with Steve, I found myself beginning to argue, but I stopped, listened, and changed my emotion, and thus the direction of the scene. I have made some progress in steed, and a pony pun.

TSA Agent Cracks Timothy McVeigh Bomb Joke to Passenger
“What do you think might happen to you if, while in line waiting to be screened at the airport, you decided to crack a joke about Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh? An enhanced pat-down would probably be the least of your worries. So one airline traveler was taken aback recently at Boston’s Logan ...”
This is senseless.

I don’t know, do you 014

Because of the brief power outage yesterday, my alarm clock is sixteen minutes fast; this affects me strangely.
Why Germans are better drivers than us
“Inspired from modern choppers, the 2011 Victory Vegas 8-Ball is a reliable, attractively-priced mainstream cruiser with no frills but plenty of attitude and tuning potential, courtesy of a stacked Victory/Ness accessory lineup.”

“What does it take to swap a modern GM [Corvette] LS3 into a classic Mazda RX-7? We don’t know ourselves, but MotoIQ is working on just such a project that should prove most interesting. Can these import boys handle the raw power of a big V8?”
Borders to be Shut Down and Liquidated
“The Wall Street Journal and others are reporting that Borders will be shut down and liquidated after the company issued a press release earlier today. If approved by a bankruptcy court judge on Thursday, the liquidations at the nearly 400 remaining stores could begin as soon as this Friday.”
For my appearance at a formal hearing,
borrowing a disguise from the Coast Guard makes sense,

My Chevy Cavalier posted 26.638 miles per gallon or 8.798 liters per 100 kilometers at the Lake Quivira, where one may only acquire a receipt from the pump.

“Web 1.0 was where corporations thought the internet was another dandy platform for telling us what they wanted us to know. Web 2.0 was where we showed them that the internet is about us, not them, and that if they want to stay around, they’d better sit back, shut up, and listen.”
Twitter / Christopher Hurt: “RT @Yuricon: Google+ is annoying the crap out of me. Folks, please stop sharing the same banal links and pictures you do on Facebook!”

Bring the beat back 003

While my Motorola Droid 2 was in the Multimedia Station for DROID by Motorola yesterday, I listened to songs which I had stored on the memory card, because Pandora was not working.
Bring the beat back, ride on ride on
By m.o.v.e, “Noizy Tribe” has returned as my ring-tone from “Equestria Girls”, therefore I perhaps have just taken a step backwards in the program.
Five Stages of Brony Development
“After weeks of drawing (badly of course), gathering narrations, pictures, and multiple computer crashes, this lovely piece of work is finally finished!! This...”
This image of Rainbow Dash is twenty per cent cooler than the internet meme featured in the following.
Songify This - CAN’T HUG EVERY CAT -- a song about loving cats
“Overcome by her love of cats, Debbie the Online Dater conjures an interspecies love song, danceable by all creatures. Download SONGIFY, the app to songify...”
I cried while watching a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic version of a song by Journey, i.e., a pony music video.
Don’t Stop Believing, My Little Ponies!
“When do I get MY cutie mark? Cutie Mark Crusaders, away! The song is ‘Don’t Stop Believing’ by Journey. If you didn’t know that, listen to it again seven...”
Admittedly, pony music and parody videos are twenty per cent cooler than their anime counterparts.
Law & Order: Magic Friendship Unit
“-EDIT 28 June.2011- Thanks tweedlebeetles for letting me use the title he suggested. After going all out on my last video, I didn’t think I could top it. But...”
Thank you, David, for sharing the preceding. Despite recently losing some of its appeal with me, I might indeed see the following film for Carrell.
“CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE. is an ensemble comedy centering around a father (Steve Carell), his adulteress wife (Julianne Moore), his new wing-man (Ryan Gosling), and what happens when he attempts to put his unraveled life back together.”
Except for a Facebook ad, I would not have known that Laura Ingraham will be at the Uptown Theater next week.
Laura Ingraham: Of Thee I Zing
“The Home Page for political commentator and talk show host Laura Ingraham. A new breed of talk show, for a new breed of listener.”
Twitter / Steve Martin: “I hate being stared at on the beach by lusty onlookers when I’m in my bikini: (thanks for the photo, whoever you were)” ...Between hopping a curb this morning and hearing a man use a mobile phone in the restroom, which is more annoying?

I don’t know, do you 013

On Sunday, the pleasant surprise of this new week was no paper due in my online class! The United States played Japan yesterday in the Women’s World Cup.
Twitter / Mari Kurisato 栗里真理: “In the face of such personal tragedy Japan just leveraged every chance they had to pull it out and come back twice.”
While thinking about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which recently opened in theaters, David was hoping that the game was one of Quidditch; however, if we are cheering on witches, then we should be cheering the members of the 501st Joint Allied Wing! I don’t know, do you?

Postscript to Experiment 012

My friends and I typically gather at the home of my friend Denton on Friday evenings. In his stead and for variety, we have been going other places for the last two weeks while Denton has been in Honduras as part of a project in archaeology. He returns next Sunday.
PADO Archaeological Field School
“Welcome to the blog of the Proyecto Arqueologico Valle de Otoro Archaeological Field School. Check here for updates on our work, finds, and adventures in Honduras!”
Last week we were planning to go to the Red Balloon Bar & Grill for karaoke, but we decided that we would rather continue to converse. We actually went this week. I selected two songs.

I think that I cannot differentiate tonal qualities, and not the cool kind without the first letter in the Latin alphabet, i.e., I have tone deafness rather than tone def-ness. I really only barely knew the chorus to “Breaking the Law” by Judas Priest, but my friends cheered me on. My next song was what I tell people about Santa Claus; however, 12:48 a.m. is about the time to stop believing that my Journey song was going to be played. David commented on my status:
“I assumed that ‘Don’t Stop Believin’’ was the one you were going for... so I said ‘Anyway You Want It’ because it’s not the expected Journey song and yet... with wanting something your way, it is just as much Santa Claus related as it is Burger King related. Also, in my opinion, a better song, but that’s just me.”
That particular restaurant chain advertised, “Have It Your Way.” In truth, I oft prefer the cliche to the novel
; I have my priorities.
Twitter / Ben Patrick Johnson: “Each time @SpeakerBoehner claims ‘Americans don’t want tax increases,’ he’s LYING. Polls -- 67% of us support it for wealthy. He sees polls.”
Yeah, it’s time to pony up. To which I awoke within three minute of the start, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic airs on early on The Hub on Saturday mornings. Where I was second place last time, I will give the audience something that they are not expecting as a part of the second season of the Next Big Improv Show
tonight at the Roving Imp Theater!

Bring the beat back 002

Because some posts from early last month appear only on Egocentric Universe, I apologize to any readers of my Mirror Universe. On Wednesday night, I remembered to use the DVR for a new serial, which stays crunchy in milk, The Car Show hosted by Adam Carolla.
The Car Show: Behind The Scenes
“The Car Show: Here’s a behind the scenes look at the taping of the spot for The Car Show with Adam Carolla.”
In a rough segue, Crunchyroll reported:
Toyota Shows Off Hatsune Miku Itasha at Anime Expo 2011
“At Anime Expo 2011, as part of their Hatsune Miku + Corolla marketing campaign, Toyota decided to actually tie the Corolla and Hatsune Miku together for the first time, creating two Hatsune Miku itasha, cars which cause ‘pain’ from the decorations, which were displayed in the South Hall lobby.”
Perhaps as a result of my minimal use of air conditioning in the car, my Chevy Cavalier posted 29.875 miles per gallon or 7.845 liters per 100 kilometers at QuikTrip.
Spose - I’m Awesome
“Music video by Spose performing I’m Awesome. (C) 2010 Universal Republic Records, a division of UMG Recordings, Inc.”
None could possibly be better, except a
My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic version, i.e., a pony music video!
MLP PMV - I’m Awesome
“Original song by Spose - I’m Awesome”
On Tuesday night, I arrived home just before the thunderstorms, while an additional warning also existed for the excessive heat, which the Climate Reality Project would have you to believe is a product of anthropogenic global warming.
U.S. bakes under extreme heat, half of population under heat advisory or warning
“>East of the continental divide, it’s difficult to escape today’s scorching heat. NOAA reported that as of 1 p.m., heat advisories or excessive heat warnings affected 150 million Americans in 23 states.”

“Fiancé George Maciver is marrying his girlfriend after making a ring out of gold nuggets from the river where they fell in love.”
After the SureWest Communications store, I went to The Gents Place Men’s Fine Grooming, Hardee’s, and the Mainstreet Credit Union. Following this brief rest, I am now going to pick up an order from Jimmy John’s.

You can walk or deny 005

You can walk or deny, but the time for hypocrisy is nigh! I usually do not update my status with any statements that I have been asked to set as my status on Facebook, like the following:
Don’t like gay marriages? Don’t get one.
Don’t like cigarettes? Don’t smoke them.
Don’t like abortions? Don’t get one.
Don’t like sex? Don’t have it.
Don’t like drugs? Don’t take them.
Don’t like porn? Don’t watch it.
Don’t like alcohol? Don’t drink it.
Don’t like your rights taken away?
Don’t take away someone else’s.
With the exceptions of occasionally drinking alcohol or rarely watching porn, I have not personally done any of those things.

see what I did there 001

Hey, I have recently been gaining friends again on the Facebook!
KCD Home » Blog Archive » Kobi’s
“That’s right. Bonner Springs. What was I doing in Bonner Springs? Ask [the] Roving Imp Theater. The important part of this story is that Kobi’s is an awesome biker bar with extra large food (the pork tenderloin is the size of Michael Moore but not nearly as much of a pain in the ass).”
Twitter / jeffalopolis: “Hidan no Aria: why do they censor her underwear in one scene then not in another? And why do they censor it at all?” ... I agree with that assessment on both points.
Censors prevail in premiere of ‘Manyuuhikenchou’
“New for the summer season, the anime adaptation of 魔乳秘剣帖 (Manyuuhikenchou, something like ‘Book of the Witch’s Milk Secret Blade’), an Edo-period story (one presumes there is a story) featuring mainly, well, mainly just breasts… premiered this weekend on TVK and Tokyo MX. The website has been enticing...”
Awesome Vocaloid picture. Curse you, convenient censoring star! - J-List Tumblr
Excessive heat to remain in the KC area through Tuesday -
“The National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill has continued an excessive heat warning today for eastern Kansas and western Missouri, including the Kansas City area as afternoon temperatures are expected to soar into the upper 90s to lower 100s. Heat indices are expected to range 105 to 115.”
If you do let loose your touch, then please follow the advice of the Pointer Sisters.
Sarah Palin Trying Really Hard To Be Sexy
“Yikes. So much second-hand embarrassment. Check out these new pictures from Sarah Palin’s Newsweek covershoot...”
Shawn Hoffman, who placed first in the initial performance of the second season of the Next Big Improv Show, commented on my previous status:
“You know, with a Slow Hand, you can find a lover with an easy touch. But do I really want to Jump For My Love? It's not like the Neutron Dance where it's totally Automatic. People say that I'm So Excited, but really, I can hide it. Okay… my brain hurts talking in Pointer Sisters.”
Once again credit goes to Craig Newmark for creating that expression, or least for making me aware.

This is senseless 005

This is senseless.
Man found dead outside Bonner Springs apartment complex -
“A man was found dead outside a Bonner Springs apartment complex this morning. A resident of the complex in the 100 block of Oak Street called police about 7:15 a.m.”
This is senseless.
Bonner police investigate dead body found downtown |
“Bonner police investigate dead body found downtown posted 2 minutes ago”
This is senseless.
Police release name of man found dead Monday in downtown Bonner |
“Police release name of man found dead Monday in downtown Bonner posted 1 hour, 34 minutes ago”
This is senseless.
Police investigating body found in Bonner Springs - KCTV5 - Kansas City News, Weather and Sports
“Bonner Springs police are investigating the discovery of a body Monday.”
This is senseless.

Humor vampirism 003

In the previous entry in this series, I shared the image on the right on the Failbook page on the Facebook.
The responses began, “Die.”
To which I replied, “Sarcasm emanates from the appropriately named.”
Next, someone said, “this is just lame!”
Then came an insult which I heard in middle school, “You edited it[,] retard.”

To which I replied, “That’s discriminatory language used against underdeveloped planets.”
The second respondent again wrote, “[Christopher,] get a life!!”
The ad hominem had at least stopped against me, “Michele Bachmann probably thinks he was a founding father.”
And the ad hominem concluded, “Bachmann’s a psycho. Bach was a genius. Sad part: Bachmann thinks it’s the other way around.”

As perfect a Thursday 001

As an instigator and procrastinating perfectionist, the ideal does not often become real for me; however, every so often I actually have a really good day. More rare than that is the my desire to talk or write about such a day. I am more than inclined to complain how president One Big Ass Mistake America is so wrong. Okay, Wednesday had also been good.

Previously, when I go to Hy-Vee for some Lean Pockets, the boxes only contain two sandwiches, but Wednesday Sam’s Club had the Hot Pockets boxes with seventeen sandwiches, and then I always have one remaining sandwich. For the monthly meeting for my department, I would be at my place of work for an hour longer than usual, so I bought my lunch to have something more substantial, yet the meeting was only fifteen minutes this time. I had left a sandwich in the freezer in the kitchenette, so Thursday was an occasion when I BUY SAUSAGE for breakfast at QuikTrip.

Notwithstanding Nifer made me aware of ZUG, which I read Wednesday for at least an hour, Tuesday I actually read Equestria Daily, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic news from around the internet compiled into one easy website. Early Thursday, David had been unable to say electronically:
“Conan O’Brien got a huge following after telling NBC could go screw themselves when they decided to put Jay Leno back at his old time after crying about the fact that he was on at 9pm and ah! Ah! Boo! Boo! Then TBS gave Conan his own show that is on from 10-11pm and quite frankly, I wish it wasn’t on at the same time as news. And I was trying to tell you this on your blog but every time I tried to leave a comment, it kept shutting me off line...again.”
I found the related query “Why am I unable to comment on some blogs the last 2 days?” For reasons earlier discussed, I have been reminded of Animation World Network.
Of Ponies and Bronies | AWN | Animation World Network
“The Transformers may be raking in the box office gold and G.I. Joe battled COBRA in the multiplexes, but while those once-upon-the-eighties Hasbro cartoon shows made the leap from TV cartoon to big screen live action, the diminutive equines collectively...”
Twitter / Paramount Pictures: “Wondering what to do this weekend? Take your friends & see #Transformers!!” ... Yes, the film was worth the 3-D up-charge on Sunday, and featured many fine automobiles.
C63 AMG Black Series, official car leaked on the web!
“Finally Revealed C63 AMG Black Series So here is the new C63 black series, I think it looks great, a lot of people have doubted the looks of the car...follow for more!”
Once Michael’s brother asks him to help take down a loan shark who’s been harassing an old friend’s widow on Burn Notice, Suits featured a Ford Mustang and a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.
Project Spotlight: Coyote 5.0-Powered Ford Ranger Pickup
“Ford never sold a V8 performance Ranger pickup...but they should have. With the new 5.0 Coyote engine out, Ford fans are getting creative as to what they stuff it into, including a brand new Ford Ranger pickup that Ford definitely should have built, if only to send off the Ranger in a big way.”
Thank you, USA Network for facilitating positive interaction among my family. Most of the numbers from my blood test were also in the normal ranges. I have updated my entertainingly shallow and pedantic blog.

I really am lately having trouble understanding my friends. They have a problem with the way livestock is killed, but think that having to eat a human fetus-shaped candy, in order to access a song by the Flaming Lips, is cool.

that‘s my starting issue 003

Because of an ad in my Gmail, I am seriously considering a visit to Jack in the Box ®, 211 S 18th Street, Kansas City, Kansas.

Boil water advisory issued;
please don’t drink from drinking fountains or other locations.
“WaterOne has issued a boil water advisory for its entire service area, which includes Johnson County Community College. This means you should not drink from college drinking fountains or other locations unless the water has been boiled for a minimum of two minutes. The advisory will remain in effect until at least 5 p.m. Saturday, July 2. Unboiled water is safe for bathing and washing your hands, however.

The boil water advisory was issued as a precautionary measure for all homes and businesses within WaterOne’s service area due to a water main break that caused a significant drop in pressure. Because of the extended loss of pressure, WaterOne cannot assure the safety of water for this area until testing is completed, which takes a minimum of 18 hours.

All residential and commercial customers are advised to boil water for a minimum of two minutes before consuming, or use bottled water for drinking until the advisory is lifted.

Customers may call the following automated phone number to find out if the advisory has been lifted: Boil Advisory Hotline: (913) 599-9911.”

Well, that‘s my starting issue, but readers of this blog know that somewhere this post will wander from its title, if my previous entry in this series is any indication. Something could be better than Cowboy Bebop, but I have no idea what that could be.
