  • Re: COL444 LTAS: Bottom Friendly Food. Hey guys, I know this is not the usual happy type of email you’d normally get, but I wanted to say a big Thank You.  I had a 2 hour drive on Monday from Louisville to Cincinnati as my Dad’s Time was running out, and I listened to the podcast on the way up.  You guys kept me entertained and kept me from thinking of the bad stuff ahead.  I guess you never really know how you touch people’s lives…this was one that helped me when I needed it.  Thanks.

    • 1.  I’m glad you like my 12 inch vinyl singles from Janet Jackson and Whitney Houston!  I have another wall devoted to Jody Watley, Patti LaBelle, Madonna and Michael Jackson.
    • 2.  Sorry about the scoutmaster socks and the sneakers, that’s just something I like, one of my kinks is the BSA uniform (as you’ve previously mentioned, thank you again, BTW, THAT full video is available on the aforementioned xtube)
    • 3.  Gary, I’m glad I’ve managed to get back in your good graces, my apologies for anything that might have put you off previously…  🙂

Urbandictionary with Gary

  • Freudian Spell Check: When spell check changes your word to the wrong word, but the wrong word is actually more appropriate.
    • I meant to text my friend that she should go to the U2 concert with me because it would be a “great” time. Spell check changed it to “grey” time. That Freudian Spell Check is pretty smart.
