I'm analyzing court cases. I have no fucking legal training, but apparently this is something I have to do.
^At least that Princeton Law degree is getting used properly.
Guess I should've taken it off of my resume!
this does not sound fun. good luck.
Are you representing yourself and your mates from death row???
had a Curb Your Enthusiasm situation today:
I was in brooklyn near the corner of Lafayette and Broadway waiting to make a left turn. (this is actually a weird semi ghetto/uber grimy hipster area thats actually nice as long as its daylight out).
A black woman in a sedan in front of me seems hesitant to make a left. Then a NYPD van pulls up behind me. A large gap forms ahead and the woman still doesn't take her left. The police van behind me proceeds to HOOOOONNNKKK the fuck out of his horn.
The black woman flings up the middle finger and I'm kinda laughing and the NYPD van actually just gives up waiting to take a left and drives forward. We both eventually take a left and I pull up to her side.
we both had open windows and i notice that she's huge (probably like 6'2" and easily 250lbs and she starts up:
"YOU FUCKING PRICK!! WHERE THE FUCK YOU HAVE TO BE AT? WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU FUCKING DRIVING AT? WHY DO YOU HAVE TO BE FUCKING HONKING THEIR HORN AT ME MOTHERFUCKER!"
then her equally huge teenaged son gets out and starts yelling at me to get out.
I was actually laughing the whole time (but well aware that the shit was about to go down) and calmly told them that it was the police that beeped their horn. I was in no hurry what so ever and I just wanted to get home.
the huge black mother proceeds:
"WELL SOMEBODY HONKED THEIR MOTHERFUCKING HORN AT ME YOU PRICK!" (this is the irrational woman who needs to vent even when in the wrong).
I proceed to show the large black son the sound of my horn (thank god VW horns sound totally different than the NYPD van horns).
"MA, IT WAS THE POLICE VAN WHO BEEPED AT US" - he then gets back into his moms car.
Large black woman: "FUCK YOU MOTHERFUCKING PRICK BEEPING AT ME... " while she drives away....
^ I would marry that woman.
5* story. Awesome.
Pissing me off today: I love my wife, I really really do. But fuckall she has AWFUL taste in furnishings. I mean, I wish I could say she just liked a different style. Some of the stuff she likes, like Victorian stuff, OK, it's granndma, but she knows what good antiques are and stuff. But we're selecting light fixtures and fans and shit for our new house and her choices make it clear that she just does not have a clue. Fuck.
yeah, good luck telling your wife she has bad taste. that always works out well
yeah i know, which is why i've held my tongue to this point.
she actually thinks she has great taste.
ladies and gentlemen of the jury, i present to you exhibit A:
I once told my wife she was letting herself go. She says it was the nicest thing I ever said to her.
Yall doing the steampunk thing?
when she e-mailed me that thing my response was to send her a photo of the TV character Rick Castle (a show we watch together sometimes, and which featured an episode that had a bunch of steampunk stuff in it) dressed in his steampunk gear.
that was better than saying "you can't be fucking serious."
Have you thought of talking to a designer, getting the details worked out with him/her beforehand, and then using him/her as a "neutral" party to tell her no? It might save you some badguy points. This could quickly evolve in to something nasty if she keeps making ridiculous suggestions and you have to keep shutting her down.
