1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I got tricked into shopping with my wife yesterday... she sechs'd me in the morning then took me to brunch. She even drove. Before you know it I was pushing shopping carts full of shit -then loading into the car (rinse repeat) and realized that I was duped into doing xmas shopping when all I wanted to really do was sit and watch football all day.

    It was a whole fuckin day too - 9am-10pm of driving around SOHO (uniqulo/moscot/EMS/REI/ect) then to queens (rego park century21/toysRus/ect).

    She had the whole day sneakily planned out... it was basically me driving around in circles in SoHo looking for parking then picking her up loading shit into the car, then finally finding parking pushing shopping carts/carrying baskets at a packed store. I was actually relieved to go to Queens because of the easy parking at one centralized shopping center.

    I was looking at all the shit we bought too: its all available on amazon/internet with free shipping. I could've helped her shopped online for all that shit while watching an awesome day of football.

    I think a crucial difference for him is he has/had the option, you not so much.

    I had the option of checking the Pats-WSH score on my phone while holding a place at the cash register line - or sitting in the car parking in a "no standing zone" and listening to the game on radio.

    I love my wife... but I hate the indirect way women deal with situations like this... if she told me the night before that we'd be shopping all day I would've dealt with it easier... Like bracing yourself for a punch.

    Eh, if you gotta go, that's a pretty good way to go.


    Presumably, so that they could buy and carry home more stuff.

    Co-worker in cubicle to my left speaking loudly into the phone.

    Even worse, he's speaking to the lady in a cubicle to my right.

    The worst part is that she has it on speaker so I have to hear him echoing in stereo :fu:

    Tell him to play some Pink Floyd on his radio. That would be awesome.

    So sorry to hear this, Conne.

    I hope she, and your family, can find the comfort you all need.


    It's weird. I lived in Atlanta in the early/mid 90s after having lived in Florida for awhile, and I remember thinking it was really great that there weren't any palmetto bugs in north Georgia. I moved back to Florida, only to return to Georgia in the mid-2000s only to find out that they're now extremely common up here. This was not a welcome discovery.




    Or had one crawl across you while you're trying to fall asleep...

    Dealing with so many "adults" lately who don't seem to understand that there are enough legitimate problems out there to focus on without drumming up bullshit, self-indulgent conflicts.
