What sport is this again?

Filed under: Just plain sad, Mimi Thorp, Pissy faced Mimi, Volleyball — robmize2013 @ 4:30 pm

Back to volleyball practice, where it looks like Kianna is too tired to do the pommel horse routine. I dont know how Mimi coaches all these sports at once– isnt basketball her primary sport? The hells she know about — wait a minute — this is gymnastics, not volleyball right?? Did the editor of this strip fall asleep too? Maybe he has jet lag from all his travels.

On her way home Kianna finally breaks into tears at it all. Dont know what the matter is; but Im sure Spiller can rectify it with some hypnosis,. But gotta dry those eyes first.

Speaking of travels, we’re turning our clocks back this weekend and ending Daylight Savings Time for about 4 months. I was thinking about how many times I’ve switched time zones this year. Some people have a problem when we change our clocks adjusting to the change– well for me its just another day at the office. If I was like that I’d never survive. Here are my time changes this year:

January: drove to Muskegon – (CST – EST) and back home 2 days later (EST – CST)

March: changed my clock at home from CST to CDT

May: drove to Detroit (CDT – EDT) and back home 2 days later (EDT – CDT)

June: flew to Myrtle Beach (CDT – EDT) and back 6 days later (EDT – CDT)

July: flew to Rhode Island (CDT – EDT) and back 6 days later (EDT – CDT)

August: flew to Colorado (CDT – MDT) and back 5 days later (MDT – CDT)

September: drove to Upper Michigan (campsite was EDT the rest was CDT) and back 3 days later (EDT – CDT). We didnt observe the time change so not counting this one. But my phone was going back and forth.

October: flew to Las Vegas (CDT – PDT) and back 2 days later (PDT – CDT) a 2-hour difference this time.

November: changing my clock at home from CDT to CST.

December: going to Antarctica through South America which is a 2 hour time change, and their time zone is UTC, and back 12 days later. I believe we will use the same time zone in the South Pole as Argentina.

So my total is 16 times changing my clock or watch, not counting the UP trip of course, which would make it 18. What Im saying is my watch gets more exercise then a member of Couch Potatos Anonymous.

Time for a song:


  1. Wow! That’s a lot of time changes. Last week, I just went from central to east and back again and it fucked me up a little bit. Maybe BS can help her with his little flashlight but I think her tears are really because Jack Berrill is spinning in his grave seeing these silly stories that Rubin is attaching to the Gil Thorp brand.

  2. For those that are confused, P1 is Kianna yawning at volleyball practice and pissing off Mimi. Then later in the same day Kianna is irritating her gymnastics coach who is not Mimi, but looks a hell of a lot like her. On a side note, it’s nice of them to hold gymnastics practice so late in the day just for Karenna.

  4. “It’s your ball” meant that she didn’t go after a set/spike/dig/whatever when she should have because she was apparently sleepy. Although she did manage to pick the ball up for some reason.

  5. Kianna’s gymnastics coach reminds me of Ingres’ “La Grande Odalisque,” who was painted as having three to five extra lumbar vertebrae.

    Today’s post coming, well, sometime today.

  6. […] a Thorp, could’ve stepped up and and put a stop to most if not all of this. When Kianna started showing signs of fatigue, either Mimi or the gymnastics coach could’ve told her to quit one or the other […]
