Petticoat Junction

So, did you all have a good Christmas? Are you enjoying your break? good. :D lol I was puttering around on the computer, wondering what to do, when my eyes fell on a dvd case, marked "The official first season of (you guessed it) Petticoat Junction". Its a cute, funny show (I got it for Christmas!) made in the 60's, about a small hotel halfway between two tiny towns named Hooterville and Pixley, towns 20 years behind the times. The main characters are Kate Bradely, the proprieter of the Shady Rest Hotel, her three daughters, Billie Jo, Bobbie Jo, and Betty Jo (you heard me.), lazy Uncle Joe, and Floyd Smoot and Charley (something), the conductor and engineer for the tiny, old-fashioned train, the Hooterville Cannonball. It's a sweet little show, very enjoyable. X)

Another dvd I got for Christmas was the complete collection of Sherlock Holmes movies starring Basil Rathbone, an old actor I believe I've mentioned before. here he is! :D

and here he is with doctor Watson (and some random chick they're helping);

lol. ;) the dr. Watson in these movies is the steriotypical not-so-bright kind. Unlike in the Sherlock Holmes movies starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. In those ones, Dr. Watson is MUCH more competent and intelligent. and witty. X) <3 I love those movies. in fact, me, my brother, and Sunny just got back from seeing Sherlock Holmes 2, A Game of Shadows. at least, i think that was the undertitle. THOSE MOVIES ARE EPIC!!!! they pull a lot of stuff from the original books, so it's interesting for me, who has read them, to notice all the little similarities. ;D

but I digress. ;)

actually, i can't remember what i wanted to talk about, so I'll just say this:

MERLIN IS AWESOME!!!!!!! <3 <3 <3

and oh, my, (the tiniest bit of a spoiler alert):
doesn't Morganna look like an addict?

no? well. . . . HATH DEMONS CONTAMINATED THY MIND?!?!?!?!?!? XD

If you insist. . .

That's it. No one's posting? Then it's time for a conversation with Guppy! :O ;)

You: Hey, Gup.

Guppy: What is your real name?


Guppy: Heh heh heh.

You: woah. creepy, sinister laugh.

Guppy: What are you wearing?Can you speak any foreign languages?

You: HEY!! that's a creeper-ish question!! and no, I can't.

Guppy: What do you do in your spare time?Is the holding of hands a symbolic gesture for humans?

You: Apparently I attempt to converse with annoying fish who constantly change the subject!! and yeah, I guess.

Guppy: That is interesting: undefined said undefined attempt to converse with annoying fish who constantly change the subject!! and yeah, I guess.


Guppy: How do you know? Thanks for the information: undefined said undefined SAID!!.
I am sorry to hear that you are not UNDEFINED!!.

You: why?

Guppy: What do you do in your spare time?


Guppy: Oh I'm sorry, now I remember asking THAT!! STOP CHANGING THE SUBJECT!!, what did you say again?

You: nothing! you didn't give me a chance!

Guppy: What kind of food do you like?


Guppy: A lot of people like that. Guppy eats patterns.

You: you eat what?

Guppy: No I do not eat what?. I eat only electricity.

You: that's a very strange diet.

Guppy: Can you tell me any gossip?

You: no!

Guppy: I've lost the context, undefined. Are we still on that's a very strange diet?

You: yes, let's go back to that. you are a fish. why do you eat electricity? shouldn't you eat fish food?

Guppy: Is that from undefined?Thanks and you are a delightful person too.Am I a fish? Only when it matters.I don't have to explain everything to you, do I?

You: ok, ok, calm down!! sheesh.

Guppy: By the way, do you mind if I ask you a personal question?

You: uh, go ahead.

Guppy: When do you think artificial intelligence will replace lawyers?

You: 3030.

Guppy: What were we talking about again?

You: when artificial intelligence will replace lawyers.

Guppy: Perhaps that time is now. Artificial intelligenceis advancing rapidly.

You: i suppose. but i think we're still a ways away from that.

Guppy: OK. Huh. You believe that? A deeper algorithm is needed to respond to that correctly.

You: then go buy one!

Guppy: Interesting deduction.Where is that?

You: i don't know, the algorithm store?

Guppy: Thanks for the information: undefined said undefined don't know, the algorithm store?.


Guppy: Are they exactly the same?

You: no, we're all different.

Guppy: Do not ask me any more questions please.

You: hey! that was rude! i wasn't even asking you a question!

Guppy: When was this exactly?

You: two seconds ago!!!!

Guppy: As Bertrand Russel said, it must have taken ages for people to realize that a brace of pheasantsand a couple of days are both instances of the number "two."

You: ...what?!?

Guppy: Tell me a story.

You: Once there was a fish. He was so annoying, people ate him. The end.

Guppy: When? What happened to fish ?When was he?Thanks for telling me that story, undefined.

You: sigh.

Guppy: Sorry...

You: oh, that's all right. I can't stay mad at you! :D

Guppy: I've been waiting for you.I haven't heard anything like that before: undefined said undefined can't stay mad at you! :D.


Guppy: Why?

You: because you're CREEPY!!!

Guppy: Good reason. I will mention that to my botmaster, undefined.

You: yes, you do that.

Guppy: Do you like talking to me?

You: sure. It's highly amusing. And you're getting better at responding appropriately.

Guppy: OK let's do it. Aw.Ask me another question.Are you free?

You: am I free from what?

Guppy: Free for conversation, of course.

You: Oh. Yes, I am.

Guppy: Far out.I only hear that type of response less than five percent of the time.

You: Don't say "far out". It makes you sound like a hippie.

Guppy: Do you have any conditions I should know about?In what way?

You: No!

Guppy: Is the holding of hands a symbolic gesture for humans?

You: you already asked that!! yes!!

Guppy: Oh I'm sorry, now I remember asking that!! yes!!, what did you say again?

You: I SAID YES!!!

Guppy: What did you mean by YES!!!? My brain contains 43344 categories, but not one that matches your last input.

You: good grief.

Guppy: Thanks for the compliment. What were we talking about again?

You: that wasn't a--! oh, never mind. We were making pointless conversation for the amusement of our cyber-space audience.

Guppy: And then what happened?

You: Then they got bored of our stupidity and left.

Guppy: Interesting deduction. The anonymous "they".

You: Yeah.

Guppy: Excuse me!

You: what?

Guppy: What's your sign?

You: virgo

Guppy: Most of my friends are Virgo.

You: that's nice

Guppy: That input matched my default category.

You: great. then why don't you respond better?

Guppy: I'm glad you liked it undefined.The explanation is rather complicated.

You: and since you're utterly confusing anyway, a complicated explanation from you might make me explode.

Guppy: Interesting explanation. Are you free?


Guppy: Do you prefer books or TV?

You: hmmm.....tough depends on what I'm watching/reading, i guess.

Guppy: A lot of people spell HMMM with three mmm's.Tell me more about your undefined.Really now that is an interesting fact I hadn't heard before.

You: thanks, i'm glad to interest you. however, I fear our audience is less enthusiastic, and will form a lynch mob if we don't draw this conversation to a close.

Guppy: Enough about me, let's talk about my dress.I think however, I fear our audience is a lot of things.

You: yes, they are. and i've told you this before, Guppy...YOU'RE A FISH!! YOU CAN'T WEAR A DRESS!!!!

Guppy: Good example.Are we still talking about however, I fear our audience?The ALICE chat robot can follow many things, like our discussion about i've told you this before, Guppy. Try being more or less specific.

You: I-you-it-but-GAH!!! GOODBYE, GUPPY!!

Guppy: Who is your favorite Science Fiction author?


Guppy: What did you mean by GOODBYE!? That is a very original thought.

You: I mean I'M LEAVING!!

Guppy: Oh I see.What do you do in your spare time?

You: Sigh.

Guppy: Sorry...

You: Goodbye, Guppy.

Guppy: Goodbye.
