I may end up staying indoors until Christmas.

I would go out tonight, but I haven't got a stitch to wear. This man said its gruesome, that someone so handsome should care.

Also its kind of expensive - its around $160 per application. (I understand that its because the USA charges the same mount so Brazil wants to be even-steven).

There is a super easy solution for the wife and I: Apparently Brazil have an open travel agreement (no visa requirement) with the Philippines. My wife and I are both dual-citizens and have both USA and Philippine Passports. But we never use our Philippine Passports (except for re-entry to the Philippines) and they are going to expire in less than 6months. Of course there's always a 6 month valid passport rule when traveling. ffffuuuu.gif

also - I like traveling using the USA passports because, just in case shit goes down I'd rather have the golden parachute of 'Merican protection.

I don't get that six month valid passport rule... if I can't use my passport for the last 6 months of its validity, why can't they just move the date?

This is because she remains incapable ob being a functional human being and was kicked out of the place she was living with a guy who was the most decent thing that had happened to her in a while. It turns out that - among other things - he got fed up with her not working but wanting to live a certain lifestyle. Once again, her inability to make progress as a human being is causing everyone - especially her son - harm, which leads to to greater stress on all of us. I'd be pissed off about this in general, but this is the third time this has happened.

The thing that did piss me off tonight though was when she called and I had to tell her that he couldn't talk to her because of his behavior. Her response was that it's because he doesn't get to see her and this would be fixed if she could spend more time with him - completely ignoring the fact that the reason he isn't spending time with her is because of her own actions. That still gets under my skin.

that sucks man, but you're doing a good job.

wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary last night.... went to a pretty decent japanese place... had some sashimi and cocktails first, then ordered our main course. an hour later, and after I asked the waiter, he comes up to me and said he forgot to punch in our order.

what was frustrating here was I just couldn't go ballistic on them because I realize if I did raise hell, it'lll be the thing we'll most remember years from now when our anniversary's coming up. oh, and the manager also apologized, and asked if I had xxx credit card because I can avail of a discount if I have one. stupid motherfucker.

This sounds a lot like my dad when I was a kid. He was only around when he felt like it, completely unreliable when he was, my mom wound up being the bad guy because she had to discipline us while my dad could swoop in and be a hero whenever he felt like it, etc.

For what it's worth, my mom and I are very close, and she is basically my hero because of the way she managed to raise us in the face of adversity. My dad, on the other hand, is a guy I hang out with when we're between rounds of not speaking because he's done something awful/stupid (again). Long story short, it all shakes out in the end, and, when the child gets a little older and gains some perspective, they realize that the "bad guy" from when they were little is really the parent who was there to love and guide them (often in the midst of tremendous self sacrifice) while taking up the slack for the absentee parent.

Nice brisk autumn day. Put on a (recently dry-cleaned) sweater and head to work. Get to work and realize that the sweater is full of moth holes.

I find people get upset at being passed on a regular basis. They also seem to get upset if you tailgate them. I suppose the message is that whatever speed they are going at the moment is the morally correct one.

I am teaching a seminar on a notoriously difficult book this semester. Well, moments ago I just discovered what I think will be a great way to present a point tonight, so's to make it at least somewhat clear. And so I made a sound to celebrate (because I am still at home). But my sound of celebration sounded more like the sound a cat makes in the act of meow (sad cat). From this I concluded that I am unconsciously sad, and that my mental apparatus used the apparent occasion of joy to let out the repressed feeling of sadness.

You should shift with a new sound.

The best is when you make a man (who you've suspected to be gay) laugh hard and he has a very effeminate joyful gay laugh.

You've made someone happy enough to laugh loudly and gay-ly, and your also well on your way to confirming a hypothesis.

Regarding the 6-month passport "rule", I have only heard this shit from people who are affiliated with passport renewal services.

Fwiw in the last two months I've traveled to Argentina, France and India on a passport that's expiring in 4 months (as of today). Didn't have any immigration issues.

I also went to Epcot, but they gave me a passport when I got there mwink[1].gif

Larry, you can enter with your philippine passport but bring your American passport with you - if you have to beg the Marines at the embassy to protect you from angry Brazilian pimps, they won't care which passport is stamped by immigration
