I imagine you could do that and your duties at the same time.

I hope. I seek to emulate Robert Palmer, the sorely missed elegant harbringer of seriously awesome rock and roll. Thank god we still have Bryan Ferry.

As long as you don't wear shirts with collars like that, I will encourage you in your endeavors.

Don't worry, I plan to emulate Mr. Ferry. When he met Mariano no less.

I have one of the worst gag reflexes that exists in all of mankind, and so whenever I brush my teeth, there is a bad thing what threatens to happen (occur). But irregardless, I do not neglect to brush my teeth on the proper schedule because I am a trouper (so to speak). Maybe I should get my tonsils taken out of my body.

*insert joke about gag reflex here*

Edit: *insert joke about the "insert..." Part of the joke*

a) They showed up 15 minutes early.
b) The wife's brother was actually a 19 year old stepbrother whom they allowed to drink. Wasn't the hugest deal; they walked over and he was staying with them, but I didn't find out til late in the evening he was not of age. He wasn't sloppy or anything, but I wasn't in love with having been made to be complicit in serving a minor at my home.
c) Said minor and his GF were annoying the fuck out of me all night, kicking a soccer ball in the backyard and several times kicking it into the grill and telling the children to fetch the ball. Out from under the hot grill.
d) At one point, both boys were encouraged by their respective fathers to piss in my backyard, on a tree next to a bench where it's obvious we sit, and within 2 feet of my daughter's trampoline. It's not like we live in the woods or something - it's the back yard of a 1/3 acre lot.

Anyways, these fuckers are off my list.

way too late, but damn what fucking assholes. and probably teh poorz too.

just spent a whole fucking work day last week removing a broken wheel bearing in one, then spent today getting a mechanic and scouting for parts for another that had a worn out kingpin, a leaky crankcase and shot brakes. and my hands smells like grease.

You don't have to get up, it's a choice.

Yeah, it's a choice not to get a piss wet bed, after my dog has pissed it, as I decided not to get up.

So in other words, I had to get up, also I have something called a job.

My mom may be moving to Phoenix (she has her parents, brother, 2 kids here), along with my sister and she told me in confidence, as it's still a 'maybe' kind of thing. I told my girlfriend in passing but didn't mention it was privileged information. My mom didn't want me telling anyone as she wanted to be the one to mention it.

 

She gets in last night for a visit and we all go out to eat. My girlfriend goes, "So I hear you're moving here, possibly? Any job opportunities yet? That's exciting!"

 

Got real quiet.

 

I'm an idiot.

I just got a phone call from a woman who claimed to work for the company that will be writing the loan for the car I bought recently. She said the dealership had sent them my information and they needed to confirm it all. She started asking for all sorts of personal information so that they could, she claimed, match it to what the dealership sent them so they could be sure there are no discrepancies.

I basically said, "uh, you just called me out of the blue, and I have no idea who you are. I'm not going to start giving you personal information just because you asked for it." I then told her I'd be happy to confirm any information she may have, but I'm not going to provide any. She said she couldn't do that, and I have to give her the information. I told her, "there's no way I'm doing that." She got all snippy with me and told me they had to confirm it to write the loan, so if I wouldn't give her the information she'd have to call the dealership to tell them I wouldn't give her what she needed. I basically told her not to threaten me, she's not getting my information, and have the dealership call if there's a problem.

Can't wait to see how this one ends up.

not being stupid. it doesn't pay.

You did the right thing, G. I always figure anyone that calls me on a fishing expedition should have any information they need prior to the call. Something just isn't right there.
