Good Lord it's cold outside.

As I write this, it is 8:07 in the AM and it is 6 degrees outside right now. Stupid me forgot to go out and start my Jeep and let it warm up before I left for work. So I froze my (insert slang for anatomy here) off all the way to work. My ears and nose have just now begun to regain feeling. My feet will be frozen for the rest of the day. For those of you who are interested, the "feels like" temprature is -5 degrees. Yikes. For a state who couldn't get under 70 degrees for the month of December, this is global warming at its worst.

By the by, we will have brand new podcast up and available probably by the end of the day. It is not a regular Bombay Gunrunners podcast. While Bratch and I are featured guests, this will be a Kaylie Cast. Kaylie is our 8 year old cousin who had a fun time with her 5 year old sister Hannah and her Uncle Sleeping Boy playing "radio" with our podcasting equipment on Saturday. We brought the equipment to our Super Bowl party last night and were prepared for the Kaylie and Hannah Show. Well, Hannah fell asleep about 8:30 or so, so we soldiered on with the Kaylie Cast.

In the first Kaylie Cast we discuss Kaylie's silly cats, Kaylie's favorite food, and we find out about Kaylie's boyfriend (oooooooooh). Uncle Jared tells us a story, a story that requires Kaylie to leave the room, so you know it's good. Guests of the Kaylie cast are me, Bratch, Kaylie's Dad, Kaylie's Granddaddy, Uncle Jared and Uncle Sleeping Boy.

Some of you may have no interest in this podcast and that is fine. The Bombay Gunrunners will return with our regular scheduled podcast later this week. This upcoming podcast will be the Valentine's Day cast and we are looking for the things you love and loathe. For example, I love Veronica Mars, she is hot, smart, sarcastic, trusts no one, and she solves crimes. Send us you loves and loathes at and we will read some on the air.

And as Kaylie would say, Rock On!!

at 8:07am it was -14 and felt like -35 here.

i have high expectations of cuteness for the Kaylie Cast.

BRATCH said...

Once it gets below 20, cold is cold.

An update on the temp here in the OC, it is 1:55 PM CST as I write this and it is 15 degrees with a "feels like" of 6 degrees. My feet are still frozen and my knees are knocking.

Laura, how are we supposed to even compete with your Arctic like temps in the cheese state? Quit taunting us with -14. Besides you all are genetically designed for that kind of weather.

The Kaylie Cast IS pretty cute with the highlights being her Dad revealing her bf's name, her Uncle Jared's story about Santa Claus, and my telling her her bf has a funny name. It may be the best podcast we have ever done. We may go with straight Kaylie Cast from now on out.

Although we do have great artwork being fashioned for the BGRs as we speak, involving a plane cabin and 4 monkeys. Stay tuned.

Come up to New York, and then tell meif you think it is cold. Check out my latest entry, and you'll get a play-by-play.

Is it spring yet?

Orelinde_03, when are you going to make down to the majical land of Beaver Dam? I'm certain you make a week of it. See all the cast of characters and see the real interworkings of small town Ky. The gang may even be able to round you up a man if you don't already have one. Heck, you may even move to BD permanently.

Note: my last post was not cyber-pimping Piccu or Bratch as I have been known to do in the past.

Piccu said...

Just by looking at your myspace page we can all tell that you are THE cyber pimp.

We are having a warming trend here in the OC. The current temprature is 26 degrees and feels like 13 degrees at 11:39 CST. It is like Miami Beach down here.

How did everyone like the Kaylie Cast? Would you like this to be a semi-regular thing or should we ban her from broadcasting? Or should we make her sing or no podcast? Nothing beats the mental and emotional torture of children.

Kidding! Well, kinda.

Oh my! My Merlin, you do know how to make a gal feel both special and welcomed. You're also freaking me out, because you kind of read my mind (as I have yet to enter another entry in my blog today.)

1. Nope...I am STILL single.

2. I have decided to give on-line dating a shot. This being I am not finding anyone on my own, and co-worker Fred says I need to get on the ball. So here we go.

3. Nothing wrong with pimping out friends. I am always trying to pimp my friends and young cousins out. :-)

*4* I am totally going to have to come down to Beaver Dam. And I would to get a chance to meet all you kooky guys! I bet it would be a great time.

umm. i swear i commented yesterday, but apparently i'm technologically challenged. what i tried to say:

"Kaylie is super awesome, only the coolest people like Kelly Clarkson and I mean that whole heartedly. Ethan's one lucky kid. I vote for more Kaylie."

Piccu said...

That's one vote for Kaylie. If we get Hannah we may be able to up the cute quotient by 50% and dominate the 5 to 8 year old podcasting demographic.

Hmmmmm (as I stroke my beard). I might have something here.

BRATCH said...

What beard?

Piccu said...

It's a figure of speech and I haven't shaved since Sunday.
