Patatomic rocks the ‘nana

Pat, you can show this to your wife and tell her that this, this is what she missed on Saturday.

    I still want to know wtf an avalanche cannon is. Did Jon have gas, or something?

    Yodeling muffin — wow bob wow. The imagery is disturbing. I think a yodel could be included on a list of things I don’t want to be confronted with in a muffin…

  • Hannah

    P.S. Your ‘Top of the lift’ shot is pretty darn good. While I’m contemplating why we’ve had one of the wettest Febs (I live south of the equator) on record, I feel completely ripped off that we NEVER get snow!

  • TulsaOkie

    Talk about “see food”. Wonderful photo, that I’m sure, you are both very proud of!!

  • amberlyn

    oy with the poodles already!

  • kalki

    Come on, U.B. You’re the king of penis euphemisms – you KNOW what an avalance cannon is!

    My younger sister and I had horrid chicken pox when mom was pregnant with 3rd sister (no boy siblings). My poor mom!

    Both my kids and ex-husband received the vaccine. Oldest and ex-husband at the same time. Thankfully, no one came down with it.

    On another note, are there any attorneys in here that are familiar with forming corporations? PROJECT DUE TODAY. I SUCK.

  • Dr. Johnny Fever

    I remember having a chicken pock on my weiner.

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    Dr. J — or is that just what you tell the girls it is?

    No, but if you hum a few bars…

  • K E N N Y

    They didn’t have the vaccine when I was a kid and I got pox when I was about 8 or 9. My kid will get the vaccine and we’ll pray she doesn’t get the pox as an adult.

  • Em

    Hee. Nana. Too funny!

    Also, a comment PSA – My girl Miss Doxie ( is donating one dollar to ACS for every comment she gets. If you read this, please go comment to her. She would be thrilled! Thanks!

  • lawbrat

    So, humming…..hmmmhmmmhhhmmmhhhmmm
    hmmmmhmmmhmmmmhhhh… Perhaps suck and hum combination?

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    I worked in corporate and securities law for a short while lawbrat. I’m not a lawyer, though – just a legal secretary. Although we do all the work, anyway. What do you need to know? I can’t promise I will remember anything, though – I tried to block it all out.

  • Effie

    Hey–if you’re all looking for Dang Cold, he’s probably got a snow day–he’s from near Toronto from what I hear and it’s like a blizzard out there–close to it here too: very “Marshmallow World”-like. Not too cold but definitely slippery!

    Nice banana-mouth! I don’t like see-food though, thanks!

  • kalki

    Em, what a neat way to raise money for an important cause!

    I’m going to plea for comments now, too, although not for any particular cause other than my cat’s self-esteem. I put his ass on the internet for all to see (Butts for Butterflies) and I’d like to be able to tell him people think he’s adorable. Click on my name to see the cat butt.

    2 people taking over a ‘family business’ run as a C corp. The 2 people have a 3rd coming on board for fiancial aspects. I have made the ‘new’ business (the 2+1) an S corp – flow thru taxation, more flexible than an LLC with regard to the 3rd person for financial reasons. Have all the forms filled out…articles of incorp, bylaws, shareholder agreement, stock certificates. With regard to the federal and state tax filings…WHAT THE FUCK DO I DO? I have the forms for basic business filings, employment taxes, unemploy taxes, …Do I leave them blank, as the business is just now forming and will file at the end of the year (calander year taxation, b/c S corp) and I dont have any solid financial numbers….is just having the forms the right place to be?

    THANK YOU Katie!

  • squish

    THAT’S Patatomic? With a banana hangin’ out of his mouth? I thought he would look more buttoned down than that. =)

  • squish

    heh, heh. lawbrat is making katie work. maybe it’s her boss.

  • Annejelynn

    potato chips AND banana

  • Annejelynn

    Anyone remember the knitted kiddie gloves with lil’ puppet heads on the ends of the fingers???? when I had the chicken pox, my mum made me where those 24 hrs a day to prevent me from using my fingernails to scratching…and Calamine lotion was still pink back then.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    That is a really good question, lawbrat. I am definitely no expert on corporate law, like I said – my specialty is patent law. But this is what I know.

    The S Corporation is a pass-through tax entity which means that the income or loss generated by the business is reflected on the personal income tax return of the owners, not the corporation.
    The S Corporation must make a timely election of its S Corporation status and newly formed corporations must file form 2553 within 75 days of the formation date in order to possibly obtain S Corporation status for the current year.

    It looks like you are on the right track with filling out all the forms from what I see. But then again, I have tried to block out everything and anything having to do with corporate law, so don’t listen to anything I say! haha.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Eek! Is that you, Chris? Did you figure out that I am on all day and wanted to see if you could get some work out of me? Dammit!

  • The IRS

    Lawbrat: check this out.

    The IRS website was the only reason I got any semblance of a passing grade in fed. income tax my second year.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    And that totally probably bypassed your question, and I probably just told you crap you already know. I could never understand why someone would willingly go into corporate law. Don’t do it, lawbrat!!! Stay as far away from it as you can!!!

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    The IRS – great website – I am doing my research now.

    I’m not doing real work, so what the hell, I may as well try and help out lawbrat.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Here’s some handy dandy S corporation filing information.

  • Chris

    Katie, you are so busted.

  • Chris

    and busty too, I might add.

  • greenthumb

    IRS…yaaawn…sheesh! thankfully that busty comment got my attention before my forehead hit the keyboard. ;-)

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Dammit, I am always getting sexually harrassed around here.

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    That’s what I’m talkin’ about greenthumb. Corporate law and anything having to do with the IRS is absolutely horrifying. If I had to deal with the Secretary of State one more day, I was going to shoot myself.

    Let’s talk about more interesting topics. Like poop!

  • greenthumb

    poop, poop, that magical of fruits…big ones, skinny ones, short fat ugly ones…a poop is a poop is a poop… and for one more…have you hugged your poop today?

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    I haven’t hugged a poop today, but I have pinched a loaf.

  • Girl.A

    Poop comes in all colors.

    And now I think I know why they call you *green*thumb.

  • greenthumb

    I dropped the kids of at the pool earlier this morning.

  • Freddie

    I ave to say…(tis is not my accent ere….my “H” button isnt workin too well) Wot I wanted to say was… I tink Leta is so much saying her name rather… lee-go as in she wants to be removed from the current situation she finds herself in…. babies always refer to themselves in the third person.
    Probably stating the obvious here…but well done Leta!

  • Katie-be-bored-at-work

    Has anyone ever read the book “Everybody Poops”?

  • greenthumb

    No, but I saw it in the bookstore once, and resisted the urge to pick it up with my boss in tow.

  • Bucky Four-Eyes

    Katie-BBAW — I *love* “Everybody Poops.” It’s a real page turner!

    My friend lent it to my other friend’s daughter, whom we will call “Biscuit.” Biscuit fell in love with the book, to the point where her mom would walk in and find Biscuit kissing the poop pictures on every page.

    Needless to say, mom took the book away from Biscuit.

  • greenthumb

    Freddie…it’s pretty funny to read tat way…LOL! Nice addition to our boredom.

  • Aisling

    First time poster…hi everybody.. I dont know if this has been mentioned yet, but I know from talking to my now adult friends about getting chicken pox when we were all kids, that some parents used to throw Chicken pox parties. The idea being that all the children would get them at the same time, and that would be chicken pox “over and done with”..I dont recall this happening to me, although being in a family of five children this probably happened anyway. :)

  • OregonKim

    Love the pictures. Goodness your baby is getting so big! I love her Buddha hairstyle.

    One question though. What was the Grinch casserole you were making in that pan?

  • Kassi

    Bucky, yes I have that book. There is also a book titled “Everybody Farts” as well. I am waiting for the sister series starting off with “Nobody Poops But You”…it is sure to cause some sort of neurosis in young children.

  • Amanda B.

    Awwww yeah. Chew it Pat. You know I love it when you masticate like that. Call me Donnie. Now call me Joey.

    Pei is mucho yummy. I think I love him a little bit.

  • MamaPajama

    Leta? I was expecting Leta today. I’ll bet you have a picture of Leta with food in/on her mouth.

  • Scott

    How can you complain about not getting pictures of Leta when you get pictures of some hefty snowboarding dude with a mashed up banana in his mouth looking like he is about to hurl? Wait a minute…

    Where’s Leta? Please post Leta! =)

  • Mr Bob

    Great photo. I love bananas! Brilliant! Has he got a cape to?

  • Mrs.Strizzay

    My son just showed me his partially chewed mac n cheese. With no prompting from me. Must be a boy thing.

    We are getting snowed on here too. We are supposed to get like a foot by tomorrow. BLAH. Whatever I need to fucking work out and I swam a 1/4 mile yesterday and my arms are sore. I am so out of fucking shape.

    Weighing heavily on my mind people.

  • kristine

    well, i did it. I bought my D70 yesterday.

    I cried about 7 times on the way home, but i’m okay now.

    I swear I think there is a switch that runs the toaster on this thing!

  • Kassi

    My daughter shows me her chewed up food all the time. As if to prove to me that she is actually eating it. And me, like a monkey, claps and says “very good”…
