Boulder power couple finishes 98 minute movie in just 71:30

Boulder power couple Ted and Tiffany Roy finished The Legend of Hercules, a 1:39 movie, in just under 72 minutes Saturday night.  “We were going for 68, but nevertheless, we’re both pretty happy with the result,” said Tiffany, who added that it was their third fastest time, allowing them to get to bed by 8:30.  “It was also a pretty incredible film,” they both agreed. “Hercules is half-God, half-man, as you may know,” said Ted. “So I guess you can see why something like that might resonate with us.” (credit: TR, I think)

Waylon also “not crazy” about bathroom tile selection at Ozo

“I have a fair amount of concerns about the changes new Trident owners might make to a coffee shop which I have come to consider my own,” Trident patron Waylon Stewart disclosed to the Daily Camera Monday – raising eyebrows about what he might be talking about and why anyone should care. But Stewart had more to say in a press release Tuesday in which he gently suggested that while neighboring Ozo was a step up from Bart’s Record Shop, and had the best customer service in town, he wasn’t crazy about the tile color in the men’s room. “I know it’s supposed to be eggshell white,” he wrote, “but it comes off as more of a vanilla. I don’t think anyone wants to see these kinds of well-intended mistakes continue happening to a town we all care deeply about, though clearly, no one more than I.”

Younger child included in all-cash offer for Boulder home

“It’s a real fixer-upper,” warned Skip Fulmer before showing his family the Martin Acres home he’d just put an offer on.  “But once we include Harriet in the all-cash, 20% over-asking price offer, I think we can probably make two bedrooms work.” Fulmer added that he wouldn’t ordinarily give away a child, but Google is going to be coming to Boulder.

Boxcar named best place for someone else to buy you cup of coffee

In a town known for competitive coffee brewing, Boxcar has earned its place as the best place for someone else to buy you a cup of coffee. “This wasn’t an easy decision for me,” said taster Fiona Beecher, 30, who conveniently forgot her wallet at several coffee shops before eventually deciding on Boxcar.  “If I’m meeting someone who seems like they have a fairly blue collar job, I’ll forget my wallet at Ozo, but if it’s one of those days where I need a cappuccino, a couple of doughnuts, a croissant, one of those homemade powerbars and a bag of coffee beans for my house — it’s Boxcar, hands down, every time.”

In sharp protest of recent 9/11 bill, Saudi official threatens to give tablecloths back to Skippers restaurant

The Saudi Arabian government has threatened to to return hundreds of billions of dollars’ worth of cheap picnic table style restaurant tablecloths should the U.S. Congress pass a bill that could hold the kingdom responsible for any role in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, the New York Times reported on Friday. “We had no role in the 9/11 attacks,” said a spokesman for the totalitarian regime Thursday. “I don’t know how else we can say we’re innocent, other than trying to bribe and threaten you if you try to investigate us,” he said.  “Also, we’re giving back these fucking tablecloths.”

In classic bath salt mix up, Reiki infused bath salt turns out to be infused with Serenity, not Love

Veroniqua Lapis poured a half cup of Reiki infused bath salts in her hot bath Saturday night, only to realize too late that the jar labeled “Love” was actually “Serenity.”  “It was pretty clear, pretty fast,” said Lapis, who was really looking forward to those bath salts.  “I do try to live in the present and take things in stride, but I wish companies would be more conscientious about quality control.” She continued, “this was a huge disappointment for me– especially coming  practically on the heels of the chipotle Norovirus catastrophe.”

In spare time, Brad Feld offers helpful tips on how to cut back ornamental grasses

“If you haven’t already taken the time to cut back the ornamental grasses in your garden, next weekend is going to be the time to put it on the schedule,” wrote Brad Feld in a recent Daily Camera article. Feld, best known for his work as an entrepreneur, author, blogger, venture capitalist, Techstars Co-Founder, art collector and serious marathon runner, is perhaps lesser known for his gardening, semi-professional kite sailing,  horsemanship and the Bonzai tree garden his is cultivating in the solar-powered greenhouse he built in his backyard.  Feld encouraged readers not to delay in cutting back the grasses now, which “helps them send up healthy clumps of new growth and tidies up the remains of last year. It takes about an hour in the morning and an hour at night, but you’ll be thanking me when you realize how much time you have left this summer to brew your own Kombucha and and run a venture fund.”
