  Sun. 1/22/12 7:41pm Nashville Noah:

The Everything man!!
  Sun. 1/22/12 7:42pm Parq:

Well now, I have successfully avoided most of the chores I hated as a kid by choosing life in an apartment instead of a house. I still have to put up with washing the dishes (we boast no dishwasher), bathing the dog (the one who is too chicken for the groomer), and dusting all the knicknacks. But the chore I hate the most is my weekday morning routine; the daily treadmill, timed to the minute, where every yield to a "five minutes more" impulse makes me that much later for work. Oh, how I've come to loathe 7:30 AM.
  Sun. 1/22/12 7:43pm Parq:

Now, speaking of washing the dishes, 'scuse me.
  Sun. 1/22/12 7:43pm 7:30AM:

Feeling's mutual, babe! :-P
  Sun. 1/22/12 7:44pm trishh:

Cleaning plastic uh -- what do you call them? - blender bowls/troughs. I need to find me some glass versions, I think.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 1/22/12 7:46pm monica:

Ken the Station Manager - what is your weekly station chore?.... earwax, and you get no appreciation for it, do you? DO YOU?... CB1, that's 2 for cat litter.... annie, say it ain't so....
  Sun. 1/22/12 7:47pm trishh:

  Sun. 1/22/12 7:47pm Lightbulb Moment:

Ken should go in the basement and snake the drains
  Sun. 1/22/12 7:47pm dianska:

you're playing my favorite moment from my favorite movie (Young Frankenstein). Thanks Monica!
  Sun. 1/22/12 7:48pm CB2:

Just in from a long drive and a smile on my face with this Puttin' on the Ritz.
Always, unpredictable.
  Sun. 1/22/12 7:48pm ken in denver:

Sooper dooper! Funniest scene in movie history??!!
  Sun. 1/22/12 7:52pm trishh:

In keeping with the music au courant,

"what knockers!"
  Sun. 1/22/12 7:52pm Nashville Noah:

As a kid I hated the chore of raking leaves, so I wanted to cut all the trees down and pave over our whole yard.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 1/22/12 7:53pm monica:

dianska - love it too... Lightbulb Moment - capital idea!... CB2, you're here/there!... ken in denver, a classic... evenin' trish... you too, 7:30AM.... damn, parq... yes, G - too soon....

  Sun. 1/22/12 7:59pm CB2:

  Sun. 1/22/12 8:01pm Jay Bee:

@cb2: book 'em, Dano.
  Sun. 1/22/12 8:03pm Don (trip dub):

More like the kids from Lord of the Flies. Not as genteel as Spanky and Alfalfa.
  Sun. 1/22/12 8:09pm Jay Bee:

I'm a new transplantset from Texas, so it seems shoveling snow is a universally hated chore. Although I still am trying to not enjoy it so much.
  Sun. 1/22/12 8:09pm G:

You'll get annoyed with it after the first 6-inch-plus snowfall.
  Sun. 1/22/12 8:09pm Jay Bee:

  Sun. 1/22/12 8:10pm G:

and of course RIP Etta
  Sun. 1/22/12 8:10pm trishh:

I like shoveling snow. Coastal wet stuff isn't as much fun as the light fluffy, but hey. I like shoveling snow.

  Sun. 1/22/12 8:42pm berlusconi's nose:

ewwww, sappy Elvis!
  Sun. 1/22/12 8:42pm andy s.:

hi monica........kinda multi-tasking with my kids here, but caught that great lambchop track. what album is that on? i used to be a big fan of theirs until they got all slick and soft. have they turned around or is that an older track? thanks, as usual.
  Sun. 1/22/12 8:42pm Fiona:

Cheap Trick.

  Sun. 1/22/12 8:43pm david:

amazing that Elvis, the self-avowed conservative, still understood in his day what it was to be a compassionate person— at least abstractly in song...
  Sun. 1/22/12 8:43pm Ignore Function:

First time I've heard this show. Great vibe and great selections.
