And Now, Introducing...


Well, I don't really know for sure

[Size="1]pssst Beck, what was the name of the group again?[/size]


Anyway...

Starting out, we have the Magnificent VOW, or Victory Over hair Woman with her vampy collar and Fabulous flowing cape and sparkles.
The Stateswoman of the group, she started out in life as a humble California hausfrau. Due to a mysterious incident her husband who we call Carl because his real name is unknown, had to enter the Amatuer Astronomer Protection Program and relocate to the deepest darkest wilds of AZ. Thus she began her life as a heroine battling hair and rodent with equal ferocity all while helping protect her husband Karl.
She is the wise guru.

Next up we have Beckdawreck, or Da Wreker.
She sports a western "Annie Oakley" theme with crossed bandoliers and Cowgirl hat.
The munitions and demolition expert of the group, she started down her path in life at the tender age of 13. When most girls were getting their first kiss, she found Grand Daddy's old chemistry set. After donning clean underwear as a consequence of making a 25 foot wide crater where the road used to be near her house, she knew her calling and has been following it since.

Now we come to Nelliebly
Nellie, as she's known in the group is everyone's cute little sister. But don't let that sweet exterior fool you. The last direct descendant of the infamous Captain Bligh, she's a killer Queen, dynamite with a laser beam and the picture of sophisticated elegance and refinement in formal evening wear and another long flowing shimmering cape.

Rounding out the Group is Die Capacitrix. Hailing from German speaking Switzerland, she's the one they call Die C. and she is the wildcard of the bunch. Call her out to a conflict and you never know if she's going to show up with an orbiting nuke platform or with chocolates and lilies to negotiate with. While not much is known about her and even though her antics seem to run counter to the goals of the group, she has something electric going on cause she hasn't been wrong yet as she rocks the black leather body suit with motorcycle goggles and optional cape for formal engagements.

Damn! I've known Beck and coached Beck through her early days of being an SDMB contributor. And I get no recognition at all?

Perhaps I can be the Bosley to this group of Charlie's Angels?

Ooh. We have our Bosley! Quick with a rhyme or reason. And a song on his lips.

(And maybe legal advice)

Thanks, Beck. Glad to be your Bosley.

Now, who do we have as Charlie's Angels?

-- VOW
-- Beckdawreck
-- Nelliebly
-- Die Capacitrix

Nothing wrong with four Angels. In fact, Charlie tells me that there's everything right with four Angels. Stand by, Angels, I'm waiting to hear from Charlie.

Legal advice will be be dispensed on an "as needed" basis, and in accordance with Bar Association/Law Society ethics.

We have goals? Uh oh.

Anyway, got pie crusts to make and let rest in the fridge for a few hours. Then there will be pumpkin pie. Cookies and banana bread were yesterday, plus cooking the pumpkins and butternut squash for the puree.

Well yeah we have goals, or we will, at some point...presumably...I dunno, maybe after the movie rights or tv series contract kicks in the writers can help with the details?

You're on that right Spoonsly? The made for tv syndication movie series?

Now, about those pies...

"The Broads," or more specifically, "SDMB Broads" was nixed.

I then suggested The Bitchsters." I think we still have to vote on that one.

I'm cracking up ar Dork referring me as a hausfrau. The Hausfrau International Organization tore up my membership card years ago.

The hat I wore best was Civil Service Clown, working for the State of Confusion. I even have a retirement certificate commemorating twenty years of service to the State of Confusion, signed by Arnie-baby, the Governator himself!

Well, you of all people know how hollywood likes to change the story to make it more dramatic. Something about artistic license.
Say hi to Carroll for me

Who in the Hell is Carroll?

(I thought script changes were gonna be overnighted to us! I bet you used UPS, didn't you? Mr VOW just had to do battle with those blankety-blankers. They got every part of the physical address right, except they had tried to deliver to Lot 15. Probably only deer mice available to sign for the package on Lot 15. SUPPOSEDLY they will deliver to Lot 152 on Monday.

Anyway, don't use UPS. Fed-Ex knows exactly where the VOW family lives.)

I keep calling him Karrel to give the hardcore fans something to talk about.

If they come up with a good enough theory as to why the name Carel then we might work it into the story canon as part of the expanded universe

Call him "W" like Alton Brown's nemesis on "Good Eats."

I see I've been outed as Great-Great-Great-Great Grampa Billy's descendant. I must have simplified the spelling of the last name for my career in journalism--well, that, and the other reporters threatened to mutiny. Wow, I never dreamed I'd be Hollywoodizing history like this.

I really am dynamite with a laser beam, as long as it doesn't matter whom I zap. Maybe I should be called Nellie Blind.

I'm honored and ready to serve as an Avenging Angel or whatever the group name is, but I hope there's a large cast of characters in this movie/TV series, as there are so many real characters on this thread. How could we do anything without swampbear, for instance?

Seems like this thread should be a PM exchange, as it is exclusionary to the rest of the board.

::YAWN::

That was sorta one of the ideas behind this thread, many hands make a light load except in the kitchen where they spoil the soup thus yes chefguy is the only one allowed to cook and will be listed among the accuuuuuh credits of the show

The other one was to find a suuuuh kind and generous soul to take the Bosley which which we thank Spoons for faluuuuuh stepping into the role for us

Oh and VOW we can't call him anything else, we have to call him Carl, canon and in universe continuity demand it
Sigh, look if you want we can figure out some way for Bill "The Science Guy" Nye to find out where he is and uh drop him from the show that way or something but in universe rules and continuity demand he be called Carl as a client of the Amateur Astronomer Protection Program

Dork, you are treading on some miserable family history. There was an actual "Carl" that we wish had never been born.

Go with "W."
