lol (to the last part) good luck with the fix. i hope it doesnt turn out to be a costly one.
A little bit dragging this morning as I was called to come out and go to a small, impromptu wine tasting with the wine maker himself. I knew I'd regret it at 4:45am this morning but how could I say "no?"
Put the tip of your tongue on the hard palate, create a nasal, drop the tongue, create an "o" with your lips then proceed with the close-mid vowel.
Really not that hard, bro.
Sucks but it happens. Over the years I've drifted apart from my "good" friends to the point now that I don't care if I talk with them or not. While I've never confirmed this I suspect that they resent that I stopped drinking and "smoking" and became a usefull member of society. A few years back one of my "closer" friends called me in a drunken rant on new years day and chewed into me for being high and mighty, it hurt alot. I see them once in a while for a poker night or such but I'm clearly on the outside looking in through a smokey haze at some sad lifes. All said I'm annoyed that I have moved on and they are still the same as I don't have a fresh group of friends and at 37 it's not going to happen without alot of work. LC makes a good trade up though.
I make chilli with cheaper cuts of stewing meat as I cannot stand the ground beef model. I don't mind a veggie version but I'd be burned at the stake if I attempted to do such at the house.
Thanks, mang. As you can see, my life sucks, so your help is appreciated.
I always add a few splashes of Bragg's Liquid Aminos.
Man, Canucker? You're 37?! Really puts things into perspective for me, personally. I'd never want to lose contact with the friends I've made here. I mean, if Edina ever calls me in the middle of night in a drunken stupor asking for money, you better believe I'll be wiring him a G the next day.
I was really young at the time, but I distinctly remember that the entire cargo section of my mom's station wagon was my rolling play area whenever we were driving somewhere. I also remember ending up in the front seat after my mom rear-ended someone.
that "someone" was my dad driving our other car, btw, which is the funny part of the story
That sucks ed. When i was a kid, my best friend had a little brother who had leukemia. He gave him a chaplet to wear while he was in the hospital. His little brother died, and when i moved to TN, he gave it to me to wear. Meant a lot to me...and i wore it all the time...one night, i was drunk and fooling around in a parking garage. The next morning i realized i lost it...she mustve tugged it off at some point and it fell in the car or parking garage. I really really regret that.
This is pissing me off. Source: connemara in the Reasons NYC Sucks thread.
Yeah they are like two of the few people I enjoy hanging out with. I mean, I get stuff happens so like once isn't that big a deal and we hang out all frequently anyway (well as much as I socialize) and I don't really have any friends. I guess it just sucks whenever people you like are rude or whatever.
BTW I took your advice/strategy about budgets. Just finished a meeting where we planned our skeleton budget for a huge project I'm in charge of. The people sitting in on it know how these things work and I had come in with a rough but conservative estimate, I knew where things could be cut back etc. Anyway, I'm presenting it and it was like, well make it a few thousand more here, a few thousand more there. The best part? These were all categories where I knew pretty much the final cost of stuff AND where I could get things substantially cheaper.
Actually makes sense version: at the end of the meeting, I was given nearly double the budget I came in with (needed to add a few things) and already knew areas where I could cut probably 20% of my initial costs.
Yeah, it could be in my gym bag as it might have fallen out of my pants or something. Might need to ask St. Anthony for help...
bathroom stalls without hooks. where the fuck am i supposed to put my bag and coat
I'll often times hang my pants off the hook too. It simplifies things.
but then you have to take off your shoes too and stand on your shoes to pull your trouser off
Well, to me, the worst part is that in some cases the Brand Whore seat actually tests worse than the mid-range brand. I mean, I'm not suggesting that you go find the cheapest Wal-Mart seat you can find, but there are people that test this stuff for a living, and for $90 or whatever you can have full access to their tests for a year. If it's so fucking important to get little Johnny in the safest seat, and you're willing to buy the Brand Whore brand, shouldn't you invest the $90 in the test data?
No, it's much more important to solicit the opinions of friends, who more than likely have never been in an accident in the first place. Even if they have, they represent a single uncontrolled data point. I mean, it's fine to compare some functionality features - is it easy to install and remove, have you had trouble with the buckles or adjusting it, etc etc., but if you've never been in an accident and you say "We have a Britax and WE LOVE IT!!!!!1!!1!!!!" you're basically admitting to being an ignorant douchebag.
