    So I was driving home from work this evening and I had espn on the radio. Wouldn't you know it those idiots said the scores of baseball games. I called in and said "Hey you shit for brainses haven't you ever heard of spoiler alert!" They apologized on the air and said they wouldn't say scores anymore. I was like that's a nice gesture and all but it's a little too late now.

    There was a beautiful lady of Chinese heritage at the grocery store but I didn't make conversation or anything. Just went about my business as if there were no beautiful lady of Chinese heritage in the grocery store.

    97% of Cormac McCarthy novels/movies contain:

    - desert, ranches, or setting with lots of dirt/dust (like a dystopian future ravaged by calamity)
    - white guy falling in love with a hot latina woman
    - something tragic happening to said latina woman
    - scary latino crime bosses with impeccable taste in architecture and material items
    - horrible sadistic violence and/or rape
    - hopelessness
    - long monologues about life
    - sad endings

    I've always wondered why French food items said in the proper accent always sound douchey, yet when it comes to other cuisines, say Mexican, you'd sound like an uneducated rube if you didn't pronounce them properly. Imagine an idiot saying jalapeno with a hard J, or tortilla with an actual L sound instead of the -ya.

    When I lived in Arizona, I heard people say "Jah-LAP-i-no" pretty regularly. I've also heard "Hal-a-PEEN-o" a lot. Drives me nuts, as does hearing people talk about getting burritos at "Chi-POLE-tee".

    I enjoy saying "chipoltee." Sometimes I go the extra mile and say "chipoltuh."

    I keep on experiencing police in their extremes: sometimes they are being totally cool and the next minute they are giving me bogus parking tickets (this time the police officer actually jogged away from me and jumped in his car and sped off :fu: :lol: ) while I tried to show him the beach/parks pass right on my dashboard that he conveniently failed to see.

    it must be quota season again for them. at least its easy to appeal the ticket online and all the other ones I've gotten have been dismissed.

    side note: the street going to the beach/park is a simple two lane street where bikers, muscle cars, and the occasional Ferrari/Lamborghini will come flying through doing 50-75mph on a 25mph speed limit road which has a ton of joggers, cyclists, and families crossing/walking on the street, its even is a school zone but these fucking cops focus on the parking violations.

    Just discovered a serious leak in the ceiling of a closet in my apartment that destroyed almost $1000 worth of books and papers. Luckily most of it is still in print, but there are some loose papers I'm going to have to dry out and xerox. Now I have the fun of dealing with the insurance company.

    Isn't it pronounced like "chip-pottle"?

    You know what pisses me off... I used to make fun of yinzers (Pittsburghers) who say "slippy" instead of "slippery." Now what started as a joke has seeped into my vocabulary for real. And I hate it.

    I used to enjoy saying "chimbley." I had never heard that until I moved to PA (Pennsylvania), but I discovered that people of other states say it as well.

    Also, stupid commenters on ESPN website. "Hey ESPN yesterday you han said the Rams were optimistic. Now you're saying he's out for the season. What the hell ESPN need to go to journalism school!!!"

    Be like "Hey espn 10 minutes ago you said the Cardinals game was in the 6th inning now you flip flopped trying to tell us it's the 7th. Get you're story strait ESPN!!!!"
