I'm not sure whether this is a FABO or anti-FABO but it's certainly another bit of weirdness to go along with everything else that's gone down.

I was driving yesterday cranking Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine (from Rafe's mix).  This Mercedes pulls up next to me, guy in the car is nicely attired in expense suit, etc.  He looks at me and does like this crazy "Is that. . .?" double-take.  So I give them ol' "Indeed it is" nod.  And so the guy starts motioning like crazy to pull over.  I do it, and he's like "Rewind, rewind!"  So I rewound the song and me and him sing it all the way through.  

Very odd.  Anyway, we chatted a bit and I gave him my card.  This morning I get to work and someone tells me there's a package downstairs.  So I go to pick it up and its a box with like 60 cd's in it from that guy.  And there's a little note saying he used to have 500 cd's but and he hadn't really listened to alternative music in ten years and this was the last of his stuff as his wife hated his taste and had been making him throw out his collection bit by bit.

I'm happy about the cds.  But like, WHY on earth would you stop listening to music?  And why would you marry someone who was so intolerent they would make you throw out your cd's?  And why would you obey them?  Crazy.

HOLY SHIT that's cool as hell...for you anyway.

I couldn't marry somebody who hated BTE.

And we all know your thoughts on girls who like Candlebox...

I'm not throwing my cd's out.  That's for sure.  I'd just put my foot down.  Make her wear earplugs.  That's what I'm saying.
Title: FABO...for randomville...
Post by: rva on May 14, 2004, 11:52:49 AM
ugh.  Don't remind about the Candlebox incident.  I guess I came across like kind of an ass on that post, but the point is that I realized those were stupid things to do.

Anyways, these cd's aren't just sort of "great alt-hits of the late 80's-early 90's" either.  Like this dude at one point was really into it.  There's like Miracle Legion and Swimming Pool Q's in there.

Damn....I have the SPQ's on LP but not CD. You really HAVE been blessed by the Score-Fairy. Well done!
Title: FABO...for randomville...
Post by: rva on May 14, 2004, 12:06:48 PM
Yeah, I didn't even know they issued SPQ on cd?!?  This guy must have gotten on the cd bandwagon way early.  I'm looking through the collection.  

Most of the stuff that I already have you have, too.  Some stuff I only have on tape so I'm keeping those.  There's some crap Pylon and The Connell's Boylan Heights if you want 'em.
Title: FABO...for randomville...
Post by: MissKitty on May 14, 2004, 12:28:57 PM
Thanks for the offer but the only tune you need from Boylan Hts is "Over There" and I already have it as a single. Besides, that album sounds so freaking muddy.

I've got Pylon on lp and never played them very much so I'll pass. But your sis appreciates you looking after her. ;)

That is the greatest story, RVA!!  But I don't get it...I would have thought if he was so excited about it, he'd have wanted & copy.  Maybe even get back into the music he obviously dug.  Sad, really.

Softball umpires who don't know the rules. I was almost tossed out of our game today because the base umpire called our player out at third after the third baseman moved her off the bag and tagged her. It was such a baaaaad call.

We ended up winning, 13-4. But it was 4-4 when the horseshit call was made. I must say the girls handle adversity well.

Sorry to hear that pathogen. Not to be a thorn in your side, but I might suggest laying off of the alcohol for a couple days to let your mind clear. You are depressed and alcohol is a depressant. Just a suggestion. I've sorta been down the same road you're on, just try to spend a lot of time with friends. They need you right now and vice versa. Best of luck to you,

Sorry to hear that C-lando!  Last summer my car was broken into while parked in the alley behind my house.  All was taken was the ashtray with I am guessing around $1.50 in change.  The worst part is that a replacement USED ashtray runs around $40 for my car.

That sucks about the ashtray, Firestarter. I had a friend who just had his Beemer mangled and they didn't steal anything. But, now he has to have his top replaced because the thief was too dumb to just unzip it.
Thanks for the radio offer, Man. I'm just going to go to Circuit City and buy something there and get the free installation. My last radio wasn't all that fancy because I don't really like all the knobs and fancy gizmos. So, I shouldn't be out too much cash. It's more of a sentimental loss. :(

Aww, it's not you...actually, I was laughing out loud at your posts in the meat thread. It just gets on my nerves when people seem to have a smug tone (I'm vegan/don't watch TV/don't have sex/don't play ping-pong and if you don't agree, you're inferior) in mind when they post these days. I like debating as long as it's intelligent and people talk/post with one another, not over one another. It's starting to get like the O'Reilly Factor over there.

From now on, I'll just stick to posting random song titles and funny images.  :lol:

Due doesn't play ping-pong?


no,but he's definately a ball handler.

FABO...

Softball umpires who don't know the rules. I was almost tossed out of our game today because the base umpire called our player out at third after the third baseman moved her off the bag and tagged her. It was such a baaaaad call.

We ended up winning, 13-4. But it was 4-4 when the horseshit call was made. I must say the girls handle adversity well.

It fucking happened again!

The same stupid fucking umpire who almost threw me out a few weeks ago (and who, by the way, was not the one who made the bad call) got all up in my grill while I was in the dugout talking to the head coach. I was not talking to her. I was not talking about her. I had no beef with her. I had a problem with a stupid local rule of the park and rec department (renowned for their stupid local rules). But this stupid bitch decided to make it her business and threaten to eject me. I would have loved to have gone off on her, but I didn't want to get ejected.

I don't know if she had a bad day or what. I do know that she was a menace all game, threatening to eject people left and right. If you had a bad day at work, you need to leave that behind you when you step between the lines. Supposedly, you're a professional. Act like it.

Maybe I'll say my peace after the last game of the season, and I'll feel better. With my luck, she won't be umpiring our last game, though. And let's face it...if she was any good, she wouldn't be a 45-year-old umpiring kids park and rec softball, you know?

The only person who got fouled on that play was John Terry. And Sol Campbell fouled him.

It was a legitimate goal. The referee was completely out of position. The linesman, who had a clear view of the play (seeing has how he was standing even with the goal line), started to head back down the field to get ready for the kickoff. So clearly he didn't see a foul.

Urs Meier has been a menace to international football for years. He needs to be demoted all the way down to doing third division games in Liechtenstein.

FABO:  I took the WOXY messageboards off my bookmarks today.

I went to WOXY one last time today, and that Duemellon thread is basically the story of the boards.

DSM congrats Due on being top poster.  Duemellon takes the opportunity to sideshot me and dcXhc even though we haven't posted anything to him in weeks.  Then he takes pains to note who is new and who isn't new and who he likes and who he doesn't like.  Then whole whole thread devolves into some unfunny shit.

I don't feel the need to stick around for Part II where Duemellon complains everyone "snipes" him and how newbies don't get a fair shake and how "others" try to divide the board.  And then the whole thread devolves into some unfunny shit.

I dunno.  I really have nothing against Duemellon but his twin evils of constantly offending everyone and then blaming EVERYONE ELSE for the problems that are caused gets old after 5,000 posts.  And it seems like there's no good music discussion or other talk going on to offset the blizzard of Due anymore.

Is it just me getting an attitude, or have the boards changed?

It's funny you say that RVA.  I get kinda bummed seeing everyone getting disillusioned with the boards over ther.  I don't angry but just kinda sad.  I mean that is where we all met each other and where this site was born out of.  I agree that they are kinda sucky and filled with dumb shit (which I myself do take part in often times so I take some of the blame).  Remember though that they really started to blow when WOXY said good night.  But now that she's waking up again i expect to see a shift towards more music oriented topics and more mature threads than the high school banter going on now.  Til then, I find myself really enjoying my visits here in Randomville.   :D

Work has been very busy as well.  But I promise I will get my priorities in order and start posting here regularly.

And while I'm here...

FABO Ian Mackaye's mom dying yesterday:

Mary Anne MacKaye    
 
MacKAYE, MARY ANNE (Age 71)
A fifth-generation Washingtonian and extraordinary practitioner of the largely lost art of correspondence, died June 30, 2004 at her home in the District's Glover Park neighborhood. The former Mary Anne MacKaye grew up in the Brookland neighborhood of Northeast Washington, east of Catholic University. Mrs. MacKaye is survived by her husband, William R. MacKaye, retired associate editor of The Washington Post Magazine and retired editor and chief executive officer of In Trust, Inc., an organization that teaches principles of good governance to the boards and administrators of North American theological schools; five children, Katharine, of Washington, Susannah, of Oakland, CA, Ian, of Washington, Alexander, of Washington and Amanda of Arlington, VA; three daughters-in-law, Kirstin Lindquist, also of Oakland, Amy Farina and Lely Constantinople, both of Washington; and one granddaughter, Ava. A wake began in the family home at 3819 Beecher Street NW shortly after her death and will continue until 5 p.m., Thursday, July 1. Family and friends are invited to call at any time day or night during the wake. A eucharist of the Resurrection will be celebrated at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, July 3 at the Church of St. Stephen and the Incarnation, 1525 Newton Street N.W., followed by burial of a portion of her remains in the churchyard. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Church of St. Stephen and the Incarnation Wendt Plaza Fund.

I swear I am finally looking for a job - but it figures, when I'm finally ready to apply for some stuff, there is nothing out there that sounds right.  After all this time, I refuse to apply to another dead end job which makes me miserable.

I second that.  I will add that I used to be able to under my old boss.  It's obviously never crossed new boss's mind and he a.) doesn't answer his cell phone and b.) doesn't have his voicemail set up properly, so I cannot ask him for permission to do so.

You posted a not safe for work image from a sex site.  That image could easily have gotten people fired.  

My altering of your post wasn't a punishment.  I didn't ban you and in fact I defended you by saying that your post wasn't intended to be malicious.  I would have prefered to give you a warning and ask you to change your post but while we were getting things straightened out, people would have continued to open that thread.  

You are free to LINK to a risque image so long as you warn people that it is not-safe-for-work.  That's just proper netiquette and it is a protocol that is observed both here AND on the WOXY boards.

I don't feel like anyone should be at risk of losing their jobs because they made the mistake of surfing to this board.  There are people who have gotten firewalled out of the WOXY boards due to its content and can no longer participate in the discussions there.  Part of my goal in maintaining these boards has always been to provide an alternative forum for those people where they can talk to their friends.

That's my job as administrator and it's no different than any message board anywhere.   I will continue delete, or edit any post when I feel it is proper.
If you prefer a more free-wheeling environment then you have the WOXY boards for your amusement.

everyone was clothed. There were no black circles or other editing. It was an oiled up woman in a bikini surroundd by other images of things u'd find on the cover of Maxim, SI swimwear, & such. the only thing pornographic was the fact it was an enlargement enhancement & had the product name in it. The product name wasn't even graphic.

face it, u'r xtra sensitive about what I post b/c it's me & instead of handlin it the respectful way of PM'ing, or warnin me, u just out-&-out changd the content.

This place isn't nice. It's a haven for ppl who want to insult, degrade, & make themselvs look bettr than others in a place where their condescention is acceptd & rewardd.

The thing to notice about who is being civil is easy to see:
How many posts in Woxy hav u ran across that insult ppl who hav come here xclusively? How many times hav u seen one say, "RVa was an ass" or "Vizz was a jerk".

none. Even tho there r ppl there who didnt' like ur attitudes, approaches, or whatever, when u left they just sighd a relief & moved on/w teir life. Here, u guys r still makin snide remarks about those ppl u left at Woxy to get away from.

How's that makin sense? U guys leave but take the baggage? But when u guys left there, we don't even mention u, if at all. (Well, now that Doves is stirrin this stuff up in Woxy, we're talkin, but still havn't even startd pickin on, or snipin, individuals  over there)

Face it.  In many workplaces, even those sorts of sites and images are prohibited.  How would the other person in my bay feel if she saw that type of imagry in my lab?  What if she had her 2 year old daughter with her when I opened that site?
Just because there was "nothing pornographic" doesn't necessarily make it right.
It wasn't work safe.  period.

Then why are you here?  Honestly?  If you don't think its nice, if you don't like it, leave.  I think its nice, as does Jonathan, and many others. (sorry, J, I picked your name because of a post I had just read of yours)  
Many of us have not nor plan to insult, degrade, attempt to look better, etc.  Why do you feel the need to insult us as a whole?  I feel like I've said this a lot the past 12 hours, but I JUST DON'T GET IT.

Interering, Due, that you apparently didn't have to agree to the Terms of Service (http://www.randomville.com/messageboard/profile.php?mode=register) when you signed up here, like everyone else did. Or, you think that somehow they shouldn't apply to you?

And do you have any examples to show that RVA treated anyone's work-unfriendly posted images differently than yours? 'cause if you do, I'd be interested to see or hear them. Otherwise, you're blowing smoke.

so the interpretation of the prohibitd materials is...

up to the admins (duh)

So the terms, even tho they r writtn out, r still up to a subjectiv measuremnt.

Beyond that, it's more about how it was handld than anythin.

LanD,
I am here b/c ppl r talkin about me over here. That's the reason. U'll notice that I havn't been here for months b/c I didn't like it here. When u say Candyman in the mirror 3x, he shows up.

U keep talkin about me, puttin me down, snipin, or whatever, I will sho up. It's a simpl thing. I hav no overwhelmin urge to make some of those ppl my friends. I hav no burnin desire to b here. I don't even mention u guys over there in Woxy-land. So if they keep negative statements about me out of ur conversations & i won't come in here to point out their pettiness.

Thanks guys.

I'd also like to thank some of those who were there earlier for me, DSM, BT, RVa, & Dc. They were some of the 1st ones who helpd get my rhythm in the P/CE thread, allowin me to xpress myself while being insuld, personally attackd, & labelld as someone who just spoke w/o holdin the view I was xpressing... "

You made that post when known of the above-mentioned people had said anything to you for weeks.  So by your logic, I suppose we all should be able to jump into WOXY and start a flame war with you.  But not a single one of us responded to you on WOXY.  Not one.  Because what's the point?

You don't want to be here that's fine.  I'll make it easy on both of us.  I won't mention your name ever again on these boards so you'll have no reason to come here and have to defend yourself.  Fair?  

I don't even ask anything in return.  Go ahead and take potshots and post whatever you want about me on WOXY and I STILL won't say a peep on either board.

Absolute Poker
Poker Stars
Ultimate Bet

Just add .com to all 3.   I like these much more than the uber-popular Party Poker.  I keep making the top-100 in all these tournaments, then (FABO) some jackass sticking with an A-10o to knock out my pocket queens when he flops an Ace.  Bastard!  I'll make the final table someday.

FABO also the idiots who enter these things just to go all-in on every hand.  I know it's fake money, but have some sense of how to play instead of just being a jerkwad.

Yes.  They are very very vindictive.  They have been prepping for it all day.  They are going disguised as fellow trash.  They will be all loaded by the time I get there and I am just plain ol fucked.  Remember from the WOXY boards my stories of me, my homosexual friend, that rotten chick that hates me, and a few others that I hit Happy Hour with?  Well it's them.  

I just got back from a meeting and just read some of these!  I'm crying laughing.

Try Planned Parenthood.  It's incredibly cheap.  I've had to go that route a few times to get my birth control pills, and it's usually been fine - as long as you don't have any health issues - if you do, they will pretty much refuse to deal with you....at least that's what they did to me in Santa Monica.  But I always had good luck with the ones in Cincinnati.

FABO my old boss discovering that my friend (and former co-worker) was talking to me on the phone - thus making her decide to call me too.  I had to lie and tell her I didn't know when I could ever come back to Santa Cruz (due to bizarre family situation) - of course, I just got back from Santa Cruz last night.....

Even though we totally need money, I turned down her long-distance job offer.  Yes, working for her really was THAT bad.

Third on Planned Parenthood. When I graduated from college and was temping with no insurance, I went there for my BC pills and check-ups. They have a sliding pay scale, so it will definitely be affordable, even free if your income qualifies. The doctors are just as good as the other places.

I agree with RBS, Cuddles and Angel. I, too, went the Planned Parenthood route when I was in college and after, when I worked retail and didn't have insurance. They are top notch.

I was thinking yesterday when I was at the OB-GYN that I wished I could still go to Planned Parenthood because I felt like they really cared about my health.

I mean, shit, I'm sorry if I don't understand something, but when you keep using the word "it" to describe various things, there's gonna be confusion.  And then don't treat me like I'm the dumbass when I tell you you need to make things clearer by being specific.  Duh duh duh.  Bitch.

Oh and while I'm at it, FABO PMS.

FABO - Santa Monica motorcycle cop who gave me a ticket for failing to yield to a pedestrian today.  I didn't see him also ticketing the pedestrian for standing in the cross walk (while he had a don't walk sign) and completely blocking the intersection.  The pedestrian stepped back only just before he got the walk sign, and I started going, just as he got the walk sign, and the fucking pedestrian didn't even look and I almost hit him.  So *I* get the ticket.  

Where were you when we were being victimized by an ebay seller and when we got our mail stolen?  Not helping us then.  But, you'll protect the clueless tourists who can't read a don't walk sign.  Thanks a fucking lot.

I hate going to the grocery store. Why is it necessary to take your entire family (all 8 of 'em) to the store?!? And then they stand there blocking up the aisle, so you have to walk two aisles up to get in on the other side because when you say, "excuse me," they look at you as if you're missing half a face.  :x

If they had a "Singles, Seniors and Childless Couples" day at the grocery store once a week, they would make a killing.

FABO the dipshit on I-75 North near the Hopple St. exit about 20 minutes ago!!

These two idiots in a little pick-up had 4 big couches in back, standing upright. I thought it didn't look real safe as I got closer, and so i kept my distance. All be damned, if 2 of them didn't tumble out the back all over the highway! I don't have "Spidey-sense," but luckily I was paying attention and there was nobody in the next lane, so I was able to swerve out of the way. I saw lots of cars doing the same in my rear-view mirror, but there's no way they all got out of the way, these seriously took up about a lane and a half. And I'm sure they had fun playing "Frogger" to try to retrieve the couches. Dumb-Ass'!!

I didn't even get to flip them off or anything, not enough time.

went to a wedding this past weekend. the wedding was in louisville so i had a hotel room and everything. most fun i've had at a wedding. it really was a great time.

a few months back, when my friend reserved a block of rooms at the first hotel, i made my reservation right away, so i wouldn't forget. well, long story short, this hotel royally screwed her over, giving away all of the rooms she had blocked. i was going to call and cancel my room, but she said that she was going to take care of it, and cancel any reservations that had already been made. i confirmed this with her several times, and there was even a note about it included with the invitation.

well, i just looked up my credit card bill online, and it looks like she forgot to cancel it. there is a $112 room charge from the first hotel, in addition to the room charge at the hotel where i actually stayed.

i'm so upset. i really do not have that kind of money, not to mention the money i spent on the wedding gift, bridal shower and bachelorette party.  :cry:

Guys that play games are not worth the effort.  You wanna know why he's playin games?  Because he's an indecisive prick.  He either 1.) digs the power trip of fucking with your head or 2.) either is not ready to grow up and give up his macho beer guzzlin lifestyle or has another "maybe" that he is fucking with her head too.  

I know this stuff, I was him once.  I wish I could take it all back but one can't and so they lose out on what could be a great friend, lover, companion even if it doesn't work out in the long run.  Smile lady!  Screw boys anyhoo.  We smell funny and make weird noises.  :D

Thanks :).  I actually had to try to explain my injury to the insurance's medical claims adjuster.  I'm sure "crackity" is not in any medical dictionary, but that's how it felt. Of course, neither are "seatbelt strangle marks" but I have those too..  They weren't satisfied with "my neck hurts after being in a car that crashed into another car and a concrete wall."

She and her office had to make one simple phone call, they had a month to do it and nothing.  As if to add insult to injury, her office is closed on Fridays, so there was no way to get in touch with her about it.

SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL MOVE INTO THE REGION THIS AFTERNOON
AHEAD OF A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM WHICH WILL MOVE UP THE OHIO VALLEY.
SOME OF THE THUNDERSTORMS MAY BE SEVERE...PRODUCING DAMAGING WINDS.
AN ISOLATED TORNADO ALSO CAN NOT BE RULED OUT.  THE GREATEST RISK FOR
SEVERE WEATHER APPEARS TO BE ALONG AND EAST OF INTERSTATE 71...FROM
NORTHERN KENTUCKY AND THE CINCINNATI METRO AREA...NORTHEAST THROUGH
WILMINGTON AND INTO CENTRAL OHIO AND THE COLUMBUS METRO AREA.

IN ADDITION...THE ATMOSPHERE WILL BECOME VERY MOIST AND THE
THUNDERSTORMS WILL PRODUCE HEAVY RAINFALL.  IF SEVERAL OF THE
THUNDERSTORMS AFFECT THE SAME LOCATION...THERE IS THE POTENTIAL FOR
LOCALIZED FLOODING.

The mole from hell!!! I think I've posted about this before. I have this bastard mole/s in my yard, tearing it to shreds since Spring. Rarely can I find his/her entry hole, but last week I thought I finally killed it. I found 2 holes, dropped poison smoke sticks down in, plugged the holes, and thought I did the varment in. I nearly poisoned myself because I'm an idiot and the neighbors got a good laugh out of it.

But blast if I didn't find more trails of destruction today!!! I'm patrolling the yard good now, if I see this critter, his/her ass is mine! It's personal now, I will not lose a game of wits to a mole!!!

Yeah.  I'm thinking we need to take him to a sleep disorder clinic.  He had problems in college with sleep paralysis (waking up and not being able to move and thinking someone was sitting on his chest) - so maybe this is related.  I can't take much more of it.  I have problems sleeping through the night on my own.  I don't need to be punched, kicked, elbowed, and slapped awake on top of it.

I nearly poisoned myself because I'm an idiot and the neighbors got a good laugh out of it.

But blast if I didn't find more trails of destruction today!!! I'm patrolling the yard good now, if I see this critter, his/her ass is mine! It's personal now, I will not lose a game of wits to a mole!!!

 :evil:


Maybe this will help you. I recently heard that moles eat grubs. So to fix a mole problem, you must get rid of the grubs in your lawn.

FABO leaks! Apparently, the pipes linked to my apartment and the one under me are damaged and caused a major leak downstairs. Since my bathroom is fine, he figured it's being caused by the interior pipes. So the plumber has to rip apart my bathroom in the coming days to rebuild everything.  I mean, the fuckin' ceiling and walls are being torn out!!

He said that process will take about two days and then the wall has to be redone, so that takes a few more days. Arrrgh!!!  :x

Yeah, my landlord does self repairs and he said it would take him only a week to fix my bathroom and it took him THREE!  I was like, God dammit.  Then one day I came home early from work and found him playing with my vacuum cleaner and it all made sense.

Fortunately, I can work from home, so I can make sure nothing else in my apartment is touched outside of the bathroom. From what the plumber said, the repairs have to happen asap because it's a mess downstairs. The timing of this sucks ass as well. I'm leaving for Austin on the 15th. If the repairs aren't done by then, I'm having my kid sister drive down from Baltimore to stay here in my place.

It is not cool at all. I had a history with this guy, and he caused me quite a bit of pain several years ago. I have no interest in ever seeing him or hearing from him again, and this girl knows that. He would call me periodically, though I could never figure out whis intentions, until I got a new cell phone number. Apparently this girl thinks it's funny to give him my phone number, knowing full well I would not be happy.

I don't think we can afford the house we want.  I think we may have overestimated the assistance we might get from Brian's parents.  I don't think I can find a job that will pay well enough to cover mortgage payments, and I don't think Brian will get a non-freelance job at all.

Thus, I have come to the unpopular (with Brian) conclusion, that the best thing for us may be to move somewhere where the cost of living is considerably lower and the job market is considerably friendlier....like Cincinnati.

We're going to stick it out at least until February, but if things don't look up by then, I think it's bye-bye LA.

fabo: yet another reminder of how underappreciated/unnoticed I am in my office: I got my hair cut last week, had close to three inches taken off--it's basically been restyled. No one noticed. Yet, the intern who hasn't been here for over a week comes in and basically had a trim and people are all over her about how good her hair looks. I swear I could come into work naked and I don't think anyone but creepy security guard would notice.

Ye gods, Rafe!  What are you suggesting!?  The last time I drank Ouzo, I woke up with the kind of hangover they write country-western songs about.  And the kind of girl they write rap songs about (i.e., a chickenhead).  

Try some Bushmills Malt 21 Year Old instead.  Irish people might make awful music, but they sure can make some fine booze.
Title: FABO...for randomville...
Post by: Rafe on September 15, 2004, 08:02:13 PM
Ouzo is splendid, in that it tends to get you drunk twice - the night of the binge, then once again the next day when you awake and drink some water, which "tops you up". Make sure you drink it on a Friday night, and don't drive until Sunday.

Yes, the Irish do good booze, too. Steer clear of poitin, though. That stuff will turn you into Shane McGowan, if you're not careful.

Shit man, if you want that, just drink a lot of wild irish rose--it's cheaper but with the same morning after.

My dad tells fun stories about his time in Turkey, they used to mix their ouzo with water to make sure it wasn't gasoline (I'm sure he was only joking about that but it doesn't endear me to ouzo).

Lunar, you want to get your drink on this weekend? You let us know.

I have two fabo's this morning (I'm using the spolier tags in case anyone from work sees this):

1) Yes, I understand there was a mix up in your timesheet and you didn't get paid last week. It wasn't my fecking fault, I told your previous supervisor about it and mentioned it to your current one--they each said they'd talk to each other about it and make one up for you. Apparently, they did not. It is not my responsibility to make sure that these people do their jobs so please refrain from having your grandmother call me asking why you didn't get paid and will I please cut you some sort of expense thingie to cover the bill that needs to be paid. I am not payroll, nor am I your direct supervisor, I just get stuck cleaning up other people's damn messes.

2) Now, I'm really sorry that you can't get the truck into the hole. BUT, you are a professional driver and you are trained to be able to operate your 52' vehicle in a small space. I'm sure we are not the only place with a small yard. I realize our guys didn't help you unload your truck, last time I checked, it wasn't their job to do so. Yes, they should've moved the second truck, but you don't need to bitch and moan about their not moving it. I'll let you talk to my husband sometimes about the small yards he's had to blindside back into, then see if you still whine.

also - fabo getting nailed for internet surfing on the jorb.  totally my fault.  i should have know when the system had yahoo! maps blocked, they were on a seriously tight lockdown of browsing.  according to my nice bosslady, everyone gets pegged for it within their first month.  however, i managed to make #4 on the list.  not cool.

This is a FABO, apologies if it's a bit obscure for you guys.

Today "Old big 'ead", Brian Clough, died at the age of 69. He was the manager of a very successful football team, Nottingham Forest, during the late '70's and '80's. Not only was he a superb manager, but he was also a fantastically funny character. As a child in England, football is like a religion, and as a young follower I used to sit transfixed whenever Forest played. However, the highlight of the game was always the post-match interview, where Cloughie always came across as a Midland version of Cassius Clay!

He was one of the last great "old-school" football personalities, and he will be greatly missed.

No apologies needed, Rafe, I'm glad you posted it. Very sad news indeed.

One of my favorite Cloughie stories is from when after he got his OBE, and he joked that the award stood for "Old Big 'ead."

Quote from: "Rafeyboy"
However, the highlight of the game was always the post-match interview, where Cloughie always came across as a Midland version of Cassius Clay!

Funny you should say that...in his last biography Cloughie: Walking on Water, there's a picture of him shaking hands with the Louisville Lip. The caption: "In the presence of Ali I was nobody. And I can tell you there's not many that would make me say that."

I'm going to give the book a re-read tonight. I always looked forward to his columns in FourFourTwo each month and whenever he popped up on Five Live. You always knew where Cloughie stood, and there aren't many managers around like that. Mourinho, maybe. I hope he picks up the baton and runs with it.

RIP, Cloughie.

See, this is exactly the type of closed minded thinking which is going to ruin you.  However, it is not too late.  Instead of bitching about the overly large size, why not eat a couple sticks of butter each day until you maximize your girth potential and fit into that shirt.

So Brian found out he has enough days working as an extra on Art School Confidential to join SAG.  We hear that SAG has great benefits - like insurance and free screenings among other things.  So, he called to make his joining appointment and asked what the dues were.  They told him it was an initial fee of "thirteen ninety."  He thought, "no way!  This can't be true.  That's too cheap!"  So he asked again later in the conversation, and the woman repeated, "Thirteen hundred ninety dollars."   :shock:

And we can't even get health insurance unless he makes at least 13,000 dollars a year acting.  Which I don't think is going to happen.  So, FABO getting my hopes up about getting health insurance.

Speaking of health insurance, FABO our company swithing health plans.  I haven't read all the documentation yet, but I think the gist of it is that I'll be paying more, and I'll be seeing a physician who's a real-life version of Jack Elam's character from Cannonball Run.

If it's united healthcare, you'll pay more but you shouldn't have to switch doctors (at least I didn't)...my doctor was even upset about how much my copays were, so fabo my company's contract with united healthcare. $110 for an emergency room visit is shite.

You might be able to convince him of that.  But I'm not sure that slick bottom boots with a narrow 2-inch heel are very wintry.

So, a major medical institution in one of the most technically advanced and financially-aware countries in the world will NOT accept direct deposits or bank transfers as a way of making sure that a recurring bill for the same sum is paid on time every 28 days. Why not? Because its never occured to them to accept payment in this manner - despite it almost certainly saving and making them fucking money!

I'm thinking it's most likely not that severe.  I'm guessing someone spaced in the office and forgot to write down that we had paid it.  At least that's what I'm hoping.  Thankfully,  we'll have both mine and my roommates checks to prove that we paid it and who it was cashed by.

yeah, i'm all good. i didn't mean to be like that.

i feel super-bad for this man and his family.  i went though the same thing w/my dad.  the heart attacks, years of that person being in and out of good health, and then you get that talk from a heart surgeon = it's a transplant or nothing.  at that point, the person is in intensive care 24/7 and hooked up to a few dozen machines at all times.  my dad was out of it most of the time.  i moved to clifton from dayton so i could be close enough to the hospital to walk there daily.  every few days i would see my mom sitting outside in a courtyard crying her eyes out.  homeboy would sometimes wake up for a few seconds and we would have a completely insane conversation about something that happened when he was a kid.  i was just happy he had woken up that day.  

and now i listen to holy rollers and their special interest groups yap about cures they deem unacceptable b/c someone is "playing god".  apparently, allowing science to progress is wrong, but buying a Lincoln Navigator and being a big fucking fatass couch patoto is right in line with what Jesus taught.  how perfect, right?  woo!  

funny how fast that shit flips when the tables are turned... eh, Nancy?

Dang, you're still at that.  I think you need to turn in your Geek Membership card.

it's b/c i can't leave well enough alone.  you already know about the issues that were a result of a bad ps......

on top of the two Raid 1 drives, i added a 3rd drive (120GB WD) from our Dell b/c it has a ton of games already installed (the Raid 1 drives are brand new).  i found a good deal on an identical WD drive, so i picked it up so i can set up another Raid 1 configuration for those two.  well, i can see both  of those drives in bios, but only drive #3 (with the games) in windows.  i tried this and that and ended up clearing the cmos b/c that worked once before when  i originally installed #3 on our Dell.  then it all went downhill....

at first the drives #1 and #2 were showing as two drives, but that made sense b/c i needed to reconfigure them as Raid 1.  i did that in the Abit cmos utility and rebooted.  well, i tried to reboot.  i rcvd a message that the config.sys file was missing or corrupt?  i set the first two drives back up as IDE (at this point #3 and #4 were removed completely to avoid any other issues) and could boot into windows, no problem.  i tried to set the Raid 1 config back up, same error message.  i went back and forth a few times and then rcvd the message that you have to reactivate windows b/c of so many hardware changes.  sweet.  i couldn't get through online and didn't want to call MS that late at night.  i tried again last night and was able to call their 800# and talk to someone right away.  

so last night i made one more pass at trying to Raid both drives and, hey hey, i got the windows reactivation message again. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!  i don't even remember what happened next, but i ended up no being able to boot into windows no matter what i tried.  i was stuck in a loop = i could get past cmos and see the winXP logo for a few seconds and then the machine would reboot.  after that happened a few times, i get the "sorry for the inconvenience, but you're totally screwed now buddy!!!" message that gives the option of starting windows normally, from the last known good config, safe mode, etc.  none worked.  they all got stuck in that same damn loop where it looks like windows is starting up and then the machine resets.  

since both drives were mirrored and there was really only one new game save on each, i just hopped on Xbox Live while winXP was being reinstalled on one of the two.  i was tired of being stressed last night and didn't feel like playing pc detective any longer.  

there's more involving a "known incompatibility" between Norton Antivirus and the Audigy2 drivers, 2 bent cpu pins, and a really bloody finger, but i should probably get some work done.  i take back what i said about enjoying this crap :)

Quote
At a time when homosexual activists are seeking special rights, such as “gay marriage,” hate crime laws, adopting children and promoting homosexuality in schools, they are also attacking the freedoms of the ex-gay community.


Exactly who is attacking the freedoms of the ex-gay community?  What freedoms are being taken away?  I don't see anyone passing laws forbidding ex-gays from marrying.  And if they did you can bet marriage would turn from a "special right" into a "fundamental right" in a second.

Plus, if your whole agenda is that being gay is a choice and that therefore gays shouldn't get any "special rights", then being ex-gay is also a choice.  So suck it up and deal.  If you can't handle the horrible abuse you can always go back to being gay, or ex-ex-gay.

Oh, and apropos the PFOX people, there's a billboard on I-75 N (a tad north of the lateral), advocating (pun sorta intended) that we not repeal Article 12.*  It says there should be "NO SPECIAL RIGHTS."   And yes, "SPECIAL RIGHTS" really is in pink.



* For you non-Cincinnatians, Article 12 is an amendment to Cincinnati's local charter that prohibits the enactment of any antidiscrimination law that includes homosexuals as a protected class.  It's up for repeal on a ballot initiative this November.

Oh, and I apologize to all for the three consecutive posts.  I swear I'm not post-whoring to get to 400 so I can get a special title.   Because if that's what you think then you are just way off base.

fabo:

Fibroid tumors.  they aren't cancerous (at least mine aren't so that is good) but they are still a pain in my ass.  I have about 20 in my uterus now...very very small...except for one 4.5 cmx2.5cm x4.5cm at the top of my uterus.  its going to get bigger seeing as it started out the size of a pea.  if it doesn't shrink after the baby gets here, I get to back 8 weeks later and get it removed.  *sigh*  its not as big a deal as I am making it but dang it. ugh.

FABO:  (for all you library types) SIRSI.   God DAMN it.  They put me in charge tonight with minimal to no training on the system (my 'training' consisted of about 2.5 minutes of actual training and an out of date circulation manual foisted upon me)  and expect me to just know what to do.  I fucked up twice.  So I had to call my mom long distance from the circulation desk to find out how the hell to fix it.  One problem I fixed.  The other....well....let's just hope no one finds out....

Cobalt.  Because I'm too indie for just regular old "blue."  

I also like orange, which may explain the strange yet powerful attraction I have towards women with bleached hair and spray-on tans.  

Or maybe that's just my inner "pikey" coming out...

This is the FABO thread, though, so I guess I should be pissed off about something, eh?  Well FABO Atlanta Bread Company, then.  I think if you gave me a bushel of wheat and a live turkey I could produce a turkey sandwich faster than those asshats.

As the train pulls into the station I want, I start saying "Excuse me" to move through the crowd since I was in the middle of the car. Anyhoo, this short guy behind me starts trying to push by me. First, I said "No problem, sir, I'm getting off at this stop, too." For a normal person, that would make them stand there, wait for me to start walking and then follow me out.

Not this asshat. He starts pushing again and finally I raise my voice (I'm not averse to raising my voice, but at 8am...) to say, "OKAY SIR, I'M GETTING OFF AT THIS STOP, TOO! THE DOOR ISN'T EVEN OPEN YET!" That made him retreat.

FABO the US Postal Service.  Over the past month, THREE of our Netflix DVDs have gone missing in the mail (and the 2 discs we've actually received from Netflix have been the wrong ones.)  So we called Netflix and they gave us a free month.  However, it seems as if someone is stealing mail from us  AGAIN.  I'm not sure how that's happening because we now have locked mailboxes for our mail and for our outgoing mail.  One of our discs went missing on its way back to netflix, and the other has gone missing on its way to us.  I put in a mail delay complaint last week, but that isn't helping.  I think I may have to get the US Postal Investigators on the case.  What a fvcking headache.   :angryfire: Brian went down to talk to our postman about it - to sort of see if he's seen anything - or if he's heard from other people who live nearby that they've been having problems.  But he didn't speak English!  How can you get a job delivering mail if you cannot speak English??????????????????????   :angryfire:  All of these problems began when our current mail carrier took over from our old, longtime carrier.  

I already had a huge screaming fit about all this today.  I should watch those.  They cannot be good for my blood pressure.

This is actually a FABO on my roommate's behalf, but FABO his shitty car. Not a week goes by (OK, last week did) when I don't get a phone call because something's wrong with his car. Just about an hour ago, he called me. His left rear tire was flat.

He wants to sell it, but (a) he's spending all his money fixing things on it, and (b) he's got some pretty bad body damage on the front that needs fixing (the plastic bumper has been torn away an you can see the frame. Luckily, his brother works for a body shop, it's just a matter of finding the time to get back home.

I'm not one of those people immediately identifiable as 'at risk' but my heart disease deems I should protect myself from the possible ravages of the winter season, so I went to try and get a flu shot this morning.

The shortage of fly vaccine in the USA has been widely reported, but I could not have anticipated the problems in obtaining a shot. Flu clinics have been cancelled at the hospital and no pharmacies are offering the service.

There was an 'open clinic for all' at the Middletown Senior Centre this morning. I rang earlier and found out all I had to do was turn up.

The clinic opened at 9am. I got there at 8:30. As I pulled up to the parking lot, it was evident it was busy from the backup of cars, but I couldn't prepare myself for the subsequent sight. The queue was bigger than huge, and snaked right round the building at least once.

The majority of the people were seniors. All stood waiting - and shivering - in the cold outdoor damp & drizzle of the early morning.

It reminded me so very of the food lines we used to see in Russia during the Cold War... and suddenly America seemed like the most inhospitable, inhumane and uncivilised place in the world.

If there was any doubt whatsoever in my mind that the current administration are not a complete bunch of "don't care fucks" then this mornings events pretty much sealed the deal. The biggest country in the fucking world cannot care properly for its elderly and ill. It outsourced the vaccine issue intead of dealing with it in-house, and the consequences ... as I witnessed this morning ... have the potential to be extremely tragic indeed. I cannot recall how many people lost their lives on 9/11, but I'll warrant that many MANY more will die as a result of incompetent health management by Bush and his bunch of asshat clowns in the White House.

I didn't stand in line. I can back home as angry as fuck

CR-  My parents were in a line similar to that last week.  Mom and Dad both were stunned by people's mentality in the line.  They said it was all seniors (of which they are as well) and she just ached because it's such a burden for some of them to stand for very long.  There was a little pushing!  It's a bad situation.  

Blame all you want on the current administration, but as much blame should go to the legislature who has the ability (in some cases more than the president) to get something going and instead likes to sit in Washington and make more complications for everyone.  And secondly we should blame ourselves a little bit for simply thinking that we can vote for someone and the problems will be solved.  We've all watched from our TV sets far too long.  [/rant]

Caught this on FSW. That was a bloody exciting second half. I'm sorry that Southampton couldn't pull out the win. But on the plus side (for me), Chelsea are once again level with the Arse on points. So thanks for taking two away from them, at least.

But yeah, it's too bad they couldn't leave Highbury with the win. They deserved it.

The managers forced the owner into bankruptcy.  This fiasco has been in play for over a year now, and from what I hear the two managers plan to reopen the club at some point, but the owner refuses to pass over the name and hand over the liquor license.

So...this means a minimum two-month wait for the license to go through, which wipes out the entire concert schedule for the rest of the year.  There were some good shows on the bill, too that either will be moved to other spots or cancelled I imagine.  Still, pretty sad...

FABO:

Today I got drafted at the last minute to drive to Toledo so I could give rides back to Columbus for people returning rental vans up there. There was also an unfolding emergency going on around my work, which required talking to people on my cell phone, which kept fading in and out of range. Then I got a voicemail notification and when I checked it was a message that I had to call someone "urgently" -- so I spent 15 minutes tracking down his number and when I called him, discovered that the "urgent" message was actually from last Friday, and for some reason my phone had never alerted me over the weekend to the message. And in any event, I had already talked to him that morning and he really didn't need to talk to me again. So I wound up looking like an ass. I then hauled tail all the way to Toledo, eating in the car and not stopping anywhere, convinced that my dawdling had put me way behind the people I had to meet. I wound up waiting for them at the Toledo airport for over an hour (they left Columbus roughly the same time I did; I have no idea what they did on the way up)

Then when I got back to Columbus, I had to go into the office and work on some stuff. I set off the burglar alarm and had to call everyone on the office staff before I found someone home who could tell me how to shut it off. So now I look like even more of an ass. The only small consolation is that the cops didn't come.

FABO me for giving the brush-off to my assistant producer. she was trying to get an interview with The Donnas for her spinoff show.i only knew about it after my contact at a video promotion agency told me taht she e-mailed him for the request.

plus she was more emo-nu metal musically,while i try to be diverse...so i had to send her this letter,explaining why is why.
Quote
but i had to get your attention.andy at hipvideo told me that you
needed info on The Donnas.plus,Mike said that he's leaving the tapes
with me on the 8th.

i appreciated what you did for the show,but it's like people go in
different directions as far as the show goes. i'm almost 40,i'm not an
emo boy nor am i into nu metal.i don't listen to WXDX-FM nor Bling FM
for musical clues.I either listen to 97X online,BBC's 6 Music or the
speciality shows on Radio 1 for musical clues. i grew up listening to
a wide range of music as a youngster and my show is trying to be like
that.

you gotta do your own show the way you want.


i hate giving people the brush-off. i'm too nice for that.

Also, FABO - a coworker coming back from vacation and being all pouty about the way I did a task - which I did that way because I was left with NO instructions (which was completely his fault).  This guy is supposed to be my underling.  God damn it.  i thought today would be all carefree and easy, but now it's looking like it might be hellish.   ](*,)

If you were re-locating to the Nati, I'd recommend calling my landlords; you could move into my soon-to-be vacant apartment. but I don't think you're re-locating, so, this post was rather pointless.

redbob, if this is the case, PLEASE do me a favor and don't go driving around. I'll reimburse you for cab rides. It amazes me how stupid some drivers are in this weather. Surely, not all of them are from out of town and have never experienced snow before! I practically had an Aneurysm from yelling at people while driving around last night.

If you are afraid of driving in these conditions, simply don't unless it's an emergency (pregnant wife, strandad family member, half-off at the nudie bar, etc.). If you must go out, here are a few tips:
1. Have front wheel drive for cars
2. Have weight in the back of your truck
3. Don't hit the gas or breaks around sharp turns
4. Drive slower and stay in the slow lane if you go TOO slow
5. If someone ahead is stopped and you're going at them, DON'T slam the brakes, you probably won't stop, and you're probably going to fishtail anyhow. Just try to steer around them or ease on the brakes if possible.

I think I need to live somewhere like NY or Denver where they get tons of snow and the drivers aren't as retarded. If it rains in Cincy, the whole town flips out.

Not a personal shot at you, redbob. I'm just venting. I have a low tolerance for stupidity.

Trying desperately to shake my van loose from the alley behind my house (where I park) so I could go to work tonight, only to have someone come along with a tow chain and accidentally bend the shit out of the latch to the hood, so that it no longer closes. So, not only am I STILL stuck, I've missed two days of work, will probably miss a third tomorrow, which is NOT good right now, not to mention I'm not going to be able to get out and see my family for the second Christmas in a row, but I'm going to have to shell out god knows how much to fix my van.

The lads leaked two goals in the last 8 minutes, but played ok. No substitute for a win, though - Kent was nevertheless awash with teary-eyed Chav's today.

The big one is on the 28th - Gillingham take on the combative Coventry City. 3 points are vital if they're to be within a shout of staying up and have the chance to play Southampton next season.

I'm going to have to FABO myself for being a completely stupid ignoramus.  

As you may have noticed, it's been a little chilly lately.  Chilly enough that it behooves one to start one's car a little early in the morning to let it warm up.  Now, most cars these days have a key ring transmitter that allows you lock and unlock the car without the key.  So I took my ignition key off of my key ring so that I could start the car, lock it up with the transmitter, and then come back out after a cup of coffee to a toasty warm automobile.

You're probably thinking that I locked the keys in it with it running or something like that, but you're wrong.  What I did was lose the ignition key.  I think I dropped it in the slush and snow while walking from my car to my apartment after the Boxing Day get together.  It's neither in the car nor in my abode.  And in my brilliance I've never bothered to get another copy of it made.  So I can get in my car, open the trunk, and even play with the clock on the radio.  Thus, what I have right now is a combination storage unit/clock, instead of a car.  This is not terribly convenient.  I'm quite pissed at myself right now.  

Sorry, just wanted to vent.

I'm at work, silly.  Not working.  Because I have NOTHING to do and the boss isn't here.
And last night when I posted I was using my brother's computer.

You can get a very good keyboard from Mendleson's over by the Dragon's Stadium for a mere $5. That place is so cool and creepy at the same time!

The problem is that I spilled milk into the keyboard and so I had to rinse it out.  Yeah I know... big time d'oh!  It still smells like sour milk.

At least you didn't do what I did at work a few months and spill water on your keyboard...your laptop keyboard. Significantly more than ten bucks worth of damage.

At now that you've officially pronounced it dead, at least you can throw it away and get rid of the sour milk smell.

So, when I moved out of my apartment my motocycle was still not running so I decided to have it towed to a repair shop.  AAA was not towing that day due to the number of people stuck in the snow.  So, I rolled the bike out to the curb and called AAA to have it towed today.

FABO my neighbors who called the Police and told them the bike had been on the street disabled for 21 days.  FABO police officers who did not bother to look into it before getting the bike towed and then being unwilling to make any sort of concession because my neighbors are big fat liars.

Despite my usually busy coaching schedule in January, by a miracle of miracles, I only have one game and/or practice scheduled for two weekends from now. It is a game scheduled for Saturday the 15th at 3:30. At that late point in the day (games usually start at 9:00 am on Saturdays), backups mean it will probably start at 4:00.

The Steelers, of course, will be playing their playoff game on Saturday at 4:30.

Great book. I enjoyed it a lot, I recall - it's been quite a while since I read it, though.

"Powder" is also a good read, based around the career of a "fictitious" band hitting the big time from nothing, and also written by Kevin Sampson - the book cover strongly resembles the sleeve design of The Farm's "Spartacus" album.

I don't know what it is, but the word "boobie" has just recently started to drive me nuts in a c-lando "moist" kinda way.  It's so "*teehee* I made a naughty."

I was in a convo. today where the two women talked about their "boobies" and the ones around them for a full five minutes, tittering all the while.  Grow up and use a term not from the sixth grade or have the decorum not to use it at all.  "Boobie" isn't less offensive to anyone, just more annoying.

Seriously, if Eliza Cuthbert were in front of my right now and asked me to touch her boobies, I would immediately be so stricken with disguts that I couldn't bring myself to do it.  OTOH, some weird homeless chick smelling vaguely of cheese asks me to "grab her kabongas" and I'm going to town.  With my *teehee* 6 inch wiener.*

I just asked the meteorologist that I'm sitting next to when the snow is going to stop...

he sez there will be a brief respite late tonight until late Friday, but it will start again and won't stop again until late Saturday or Sunday.

They have to wait until maximum snow build-up, like last time, so that when they finally do plow the res. streets it creates a GIANT BERM of snow that blocks in cars parked on the street, like last time.

FABO IGNORANT FUCKING ASSHOLES!!!

At least 2-3 times a week I go to the Kroger by my house (because with my poor memory, I can never remember each item the first trip.) This Kroger is located off of Mitchell, right off of 75. It is stocked full of the most un-educated, ignorant humans God could ever create, daily. I always go there because it's close, but I can't take it any more. I struggle with my patience and temper daily anyhow, and I'm sick of all the un-educated, ignorant humans that shop there. I get treated like shit each time I go there, because (yeah, i said it) I'm a young white male. If you think I'm lying, go there with me some time.

I've lived on my own for about 7 years now, and I've shopped at many grocery stores. None are like this place, and I've heard several others complain of it as well. I've seriously almost had a fist fight there once over a god-damn place in line. It's to the point now where I can no longer keep my cool, and I'm going to end up going off on someone, possibly with the fists. I realize that this is not good, so I'm doing the right thing by just avoiding it.

So now, I will have to drive further to another store, but it must be done. Jail does not sound cool.

Rant complete,

JR

That's one thing I love about the UK. Every single fucking word seems to have two usages - a "clean" one and a "dirty" one.

As for if people in NC call shopping carts "buggies" - I don't know for sure. That sounds familiar, but there are so many people living where I do that are from somewhere else, it's hard for me to say. Obviously, I still call them carts.

See, I just had a feeling something like that had happened. Even without knowing that they had actually closed the original, like it was some sort of intution forged by all the time I spent working there.

A small part of me is sad to hear that. Working at that Krogers was my first real job.

Watch the brokers, however.  Some tack on extra costs as the middleman when you can just go to the institution yourself.  

Ask around locally.  I went thru a broker the first time, but the second time did own research and ended up with best rate at smaller bank.

Likelihood is, you will get screwed one way or another regardless of who you pick. Suggest you make a decision and then not look at rates etc for at least a year.

I'll concur the advice that you go straight to a financial institution for a loan, rather than employ a broker who is only in the game for his own gain, nothing else. MK & I went to the bank, got a fixed rate (½% over prime) for 5 years and ensured there was no early pay-off penalties and that the loan would more likely STAY with the bank rather than be sold on... which is when, I understand, shit occurs more often than not.

And of course, no it fucking doesn't.  Just cuz you push a button and a little light comes on, doesn't mean it's actually opening the fucking door.  What an asshat!

FABO steam radiators.  I found out the hard way (this is my first radiator, after all) that the little knobby thing on the side spews water out whenever it wants.  I knew they might leak, so I had prepared the area under the radiator to be mostly water proof.  What I just found out was that it spits the water UP instead of down, so now the shelf next to it has been the victim of a water mugging.  I was home to my old-skool Nintendo and Playstation 2, which I don't even know if they work anymore.  Either way, I need to figure out how to rearrange my room or fix that homicidal radiator.

FABO Doctors

Juliana and I have been noticing the general crappiness of doctors in general these days.

My doctor sent me off to a hospital for a carpal tunnel test last year for what turned out to be a simple case of tendonitis.  I'd think a couple of minutes of asking questions and prodding might have saved me a few hundred bucks on that one.

Also, I was tested for Strep earlier this year and the assholes not only tested me there at the office but they also sent the swab off to a lab.  Both were billed to my insurance at exhorbitant rates which lowers the amount of coverage I have coming to me the rest of the year.

Juliana had a lousy experience as well.  She went to a new doctor that, a.) never asked her any history b.) did not have any history for her and c.) had never seen her in her life.  This doctor proceeded to make a large notation in her file about "unexpected weight gain" when she had in fact been losing weight.  Then she proceeded to tell her that if she was going to have a snack that she should "try fruit instead of a sandwich".

I have to stand in the doorway of my examination room to keep my doctor in there so I can ask him some detailed questions.  Otherwise, he's in to talk and out so quick he leaves a Dr. shaped smoke cloud Bugs Bunny style.

Yeah, it's something I've been upset over (sort of in the back of my mind) since it happened, back in...Jeez, December or November or something.

There's a reason I never told anybody besides Kwyj too.  Even in those circumstances (she was crazy and foreign and I think she partially didn't understand what she was talking about), it was still *really* upsetting.  We were joking about it last night and I almost started crying.  I don't know.

Even joking about it....eh, it's funny, but it still bothers me a tiny bit too, back in the back of my mind.

Yeah, if your doctor treats you like that, immediately find another one.
I wish I had realized that before I let my original neurologist overmedicate me into a zombie-like state for over 3 years.  I don't know how the fuck I managed to graduate from college- in fact I don't even remember much about it, but now I've got a terrific doctor who LISTENS to me.  For me, that's the key.  If they're not listening to you, they are NOT worth your time.

Yeah, I went to my regular doctor and he is a great guy... though he was also a little confused by my symptoms he came up with some theories that he is going to research, gave me some medication, and told me he would call in the morning and evening of the next few days to check on the progress of my symptoms.

ALL gynecologists lecture you about losing weight.  That's actually the main reason I tend to put off my OBGYN appointments.  I don't mind the exam so much, I just don't like being condescended to.  LIke, oh, REALLY?  I'm overweight?  I should exercise more?  Thanks for pointing that out to me!  I never would have guessed that on my own!  Now fuck off and give me my birth control pills.

man, i haven't been to a doctor in a while.  After reading all this, I'm scared to go.  Maybe I'll just suffer my pains in silence since it sounds like it's better than dealing with whatever the hell might come up.  

On a semi-related note:  I was told to avoid going to the student dental place here on campus.  The rumor:  the dentists are actually dental students, so they know they don't have to worry about treating you right so that you'll come back.  Some girl in my program went there last year and was told she had 5 cavities.  She couldn't believe it.  So she went home to her old dentist and they looked at her.  They said she was fine with no problems at all.  What the hell?  Sounds like they just wanted to get some practice doing some fillings.

FABO that.

Sounds like we need some t-shirts printed up: "Yeah, you think I'm overweight. Yeah, you think I should exercise more. Now fuck off and give me my birth control pills!"

But, then again, maybe your obgyn isn't someone you want to irritate until AFTER the exam... just a guess.

I went ahead and started accepting credit card payments because so many people pay with them. It sucks, but I just tack a little extra onto shipping to cover it. I let people know this ahead of time. If they balk at the extra charge, then I sell to someone who won't. Everybody wants something for nothing on e-bay. I always let them know I'm selling my shit to make money, not spend it, so I charge for shipping materials as well. I've only had one guy ever bitch about it, and he was a fucker anyway.

I've never had to wait more than two or three weeks for it in the past when filing on paper either.  This is making me nervous.

I'm a pretty early filer, I sent them in the first week in Feb, and it would have been sooner if my stupid company actually sent out the W2s when they were supposed to.

I'd have filed online too but I didn't have our tax info from last year and couldn't get to it for over a week.  I figured the time I'd save would be negated by not getting to file for another week and a half.  Shows what I know.

We've got a 4 month old black lab mix (we know his mom was a black lab, not sure about his dad). He's one of the most mellow lab puppies you'll ever meet, he's just not used to his crate yet...gonna go home and let him out on lunch I think...

Bugger. Chin up, mate! They obviously don't know class when they see it.

I have a FABO - it's my health. I've had a bit of flu for a few weeks, not helped by working on a boat in arctic European conditions this past month but there you go, "it's only a cold with bollocks", my Dad always says.

Unfortunately, it's all gone a bit Pete Tong, and I had to leave my job in London today and go to my Doctor. I thought my lungs had given me the "V" sign. Anyway, it seems I have a Corker of a chest infection, and have torn muscles around several ribs on my right tit by violently coughing. I feel a bit ropey, and work will be difficult. Sorry to mention it, but I feel a bit sore and rubbish.

Imagine my freak out this afternoon.  Me = big spaz.  The only thing that calmed me down was potential job anti-FABOness, but I'll know more tomorrow.  I'm just going to try to stay positive, though, because it feels a hell of a lot nicer than whining about shit.

FACBBBO - Lungs.

Yesterday avo I went to my GP to see if I was fit to go back to work after a chest infection and dodgy right tit - evidently not. My fine Doctor decided to get me admitted to our local Hospital on the twatting double, from whence I have just returned. 24 hours living in ER, verbally confronting spaced out loons wailing "NUUUURRRRSSSSEEEE!!!!" 15 times a minute throughout the night, having my wabs felt by nurses 4 times an hour (ok, not a bad thing), agreeing with mad woman's perspective when for the 324th time she wailed "I want to die!", a dead bloke 7 beds down the hall, multiple bloods and x-rays later, and it turns out i'm actually not suffering from "popped" ribs. I have Pneumothorax, and have to return to "ER" next monday for another x-ray which will confirm whether I need to be sliced and diced or not.

Add to this, the specialist has forbidden me from flying for the next 2 months, which has a really negative effect on my job at the moment, which I communicated to him. His reply? "Death would also have a really negative effect on your job". At least he was a straight-talker.

Cheers!

FACBBBO - Pneumothorax Cheers!


Spontaneous pneumothorax is the occurrence of pneumothorax without a clear cause. Primary spontaneous pneumothorax occurs when there is no known underlying lung disease. It is thought to be caused by the rupture of a small, air-filled sac in the lung called a bleb or a bulla. The disease affects tall, thin men between 20 and 40 years old most frequently. Cigarette smoking and family history are contributing factors.

Please come to America to receive proper medical attention.  Travel in a hyperbaric chamber though so your lungs don't collapse.  On a positive note, this is also what happens when you are shot in the chest.  At least you were not shot in the chest.

Get Well Rafe.

I offered, then he mysteriously shut his gate.

Yup, it's OTC. I got a free sample (okay, about thirty - I kept hitting the people that were handing them out) at Taste of Cincinnati last year, and tried 'em out. They worked great, so I picked 'em up at the store. Good stuff for allergies. Not sure what it might do for a bronchial infection, though.

-- waking up at 2:30 AM with acid reflux (which I'd had twice in my life before this week, and four times in the past week. Think it's stress-related)

-- after finally falling asleep again, having a really disturbing dream in which a friend I haven't seen or talked to in several years is brutally murdered and the police suspect his ex-wife (who is also a friend).

-- waking up upset over this at 5:30 AM, realize it's just a dream, then fall back asleep -- and the same dream starts up again.

-- finally waking up for work at 7AM, still upset over the dream, and with a pounding headache that didn't go away until after I got to work.

FABO Mechanics

My car is in the shop having the motor replaced.  I went in last Monday and paid for the parts and was told that he would be done with it by this Monday or Tuesday.  As it is now Thursday and I'd heard nary a word from him I just gave him a ring and was informed that so far the parts vendor has not even dropped off the new engine and it should be in today (it's 4:15 so I highly doubt it) or tomorrow and he'll be done with it next week.

Mechanics just know they've got you where they want you don't they?  They're the only ones that can do what they do so they can charge whatever the hell they want and take as long as they fucking want to do it.  Not to mention that their mean social status is one step above that of that possum looking kid with the banjo from deliverance and they have the social skills of a can of cling peaches.

FABO:  A bunch of work-related stuff which I just typed in to make myself feel better then erased because it was unproductive and I'm not thinking clearly.  

Suffice it to say, I think I need to step up my effort a bit and do a better job BUT I also feel we're understaffed.  A bit of understanding of the fact, plus a little appreciation/morale boost from my boss and peers would go a long way towards that goal.  

I dunno, I really, really like everyone I work with but we seem to at odds right now.  I'm trying to sort out if I'm just making excuses or have a real gripe.  I can't deal with yet another career crisis right now.

Okay, I've been up all night thinking about this.  I think based on the fact that I still believe everyone I work with are decent people (and moreover, friends) it's up to me to try and step it up a notch and trust that they will also being doing their part and meet me halfway.  I owe them that much.

If I find that I just don't have enough enthusiasm for the job anymore, or if I feel like I kicked-ass and nothing has changed then I'll move on.  At least I'll know where I stand and hopefully figure out what my career goals are.

However, be thankful you're not in the UK where - thanks to recent rises and the exchange rate - petrol now costs the equivilent of (£4.50) $8.80 a fucking gallon!

FABO fucking flu.  I spent Thursday taking care of a sick kid throwing up all over himself and a wife who couldn't get off the couch.  By Friday, it was me who couldn't get off the couch as my body had decided to empty itself of anything foreign and then a rabid wolverine was inserted into my belly and was allowed to chew its way unmercifully through my intestines.  I think the worst part was that by Saturday, my kid was right as rain and couln't understand that "Mommy and Daddy are dying" so he ran around tearing up the house and badgering us while we lay helpless.

I'm just now eating my first solid food in 4 days.

Sounds exactly like the shit that wrecked my family last week. It was me first, then the kid, then mommy. me and the kid recovered quickly, mommy not so much.

What is it with kids and vomit when they're sick? I didn't even once feel as though I'd vomit, but my kid was expelling anything and everything over a three day period.

Heh...after 2 days of puking like all the demons from hell were giving me a heimlich, I was pretty jealous at how effortlessly my kid was doing it.  Hell, he was throwing up in his own bed and sleeping right through it.

If you ever need an ear 'zerker let me know.  My divorce was under similar circumstances.

The following may be the last things you want to hear, but trust me hiding under a rock is the worst thing you can do:  Retain a lawyer NOW! whether you're sure it's going to happen or not.  Stick to your guns.  Do not be afraid to make demands.  Lawyers only work in your best interests if you make it clear what those interests are, tell them, remind them, and call them on the carpet if they don't make you happy.

Take it from a guy that got drug through the slop you are the only person looking out for you best interests and you can't do that if you're feeling sorry for yourself.

That may all seem callous, but I mean it man.  You have every reason to be running the gamut of emotions but you have to take care of business too and you can't let your emotions cloud your judgement.  No amount of money, possesions, or concessions is going to make her love you more or change her mind.

Got any recommendations? I want to have a lawyer on call when I need one, but I don't want to do the "dirty work." That's up to her.

I'm having the locks changed today, scheduled it for when she'll be there, "getting some clothes for her spring break trip with her dad and stepmom." I'm not sure how much legal grounds I have to do that, since the house is in both our names. maybe a lawyer would help me with that info (Big Sug, anyone?) But, she said that she would be moving out. And, she hasn't been there for over 2 weeks, other than to get some clothes and stuff.

Thank you for the support. Now you all know why I haven't been able to listen to music, much. Hopefully, that will return for good. Don't think that she will.

I don't know about that lock thing, but I don't guess it's against the law until a judge says it is.  All I can suggest is to watch her like a hawk while she's in the house, or remove anything you don't want to lose before she gets there.  My ex took a whole lot of my shit, including a whole box of Beatles records, a few of them being worth some $$.

Turn the news on the T.V. so they can hear all about the Terri Schiavo case. Surely they'll get sick of hearing about it and leave, I know I'm sick of hearing about it.

If that doesn't work, just go for some high-powered stuff from Raid. If you have no luck there and it continues to get worse, you might want to look into the BBB if you can't afford to have the place fumigated yourself. And even if you do it yourself, I would try to finnagal a deal with your landlord for a Rent discount.

That's worse than moles....at least I don't have to see my enemy.

You have to be joking. Dude, a guy I used to be in a band with worked for a repair shop, and they had their parts sent over from some wholesaler a few miles from their shop. When he would do stuff for me, he'd just go over and pick up what he needed the same day, but he told me their parts usually came over within a day or so.

Well, he's getting the parts from Smythe.  Most places don't exactly keep refurbished engine blocks on the shelves (t'would be some big shelves) so I'm not surprised that took a week or so.  

The problem is now that he thought the engine came with an oil pick up tube and it didn't.  He can't use a used one because it would void the warranty on the engine.  So this is again, not exactly the kind of thing that you replace often because it's the kind of thing that destroys your engine so they just don't have it around.

Does all of this account for three weeks?  No, he's taking his sweet ass time.  But on the other hand I have it on good authority that he's not just jerking my chain for the sake of it.

Still though, fabo still not having my car.

He's not at all.  Her sister's fiance's family owns a body shop which has a mechanics garage attached which they rent out to this guy.  They don't want to get involved in the mechanic end, just the body work.

I have no problem believing the guy would be glad to screw us, but I think he probably won't because pissing off the landlord (not that I even believe they'd go very far to go to bat for us) doesn't get you very far.

So it's no loyalty to him, like I said, he's taking his sweet ass time.  But supposedly it's the parts causing the hold up (this is per my sis-in-law).

You should send Butter over to put the fear of God into him.  Then once Butter's gotten a nice beating you can press assault charges.

Well, the cops came and talked to me. I told them what was happening and they suggested a restraining order. So I might just have to go file one if he looks at me the wrong way again.


The only thing is: since he's a juvenile (he's 17) they're not sure if a judge will issue a restraining order.

What?  He's to young to be swatted on the nose for being the pest that he is?

What does his age have to do with anything.  If he's old enough to be a disrespectful cocksucker, he's old enough to be told to stay the hell away.

C-fan, if the cops think you should try for a restraining order, then I say go for it. You may also want to see if you can get evidence of him yelling at you (that might help sway the judge). The kid's old enough to know better, but he seems to not know--he needs to learn.

FABo my teenage neighbor. He's started yelling expletives at me again. Last night he called me a "f-ing fat ass". So now everytime I go outside I have to have my cell phone ready to call the police. You know, I really hope he threatens me so I can get a restraining order on him and he won't be able to live beside me anymore.

About 3 years ago he was exploding homemade bombs in his driveway (which is right on the edge of our property). I yelled that he better stop or I would call the police. He didn't stop so I called the police. The police came out, I filed a report, and he was facing a felony. They got all CSI like and went over and collected evidence ( the remains of the bombs). It went to court, I was subpoened (sp?) but I guess he settled or something. So, he holds a grudge about that.

And, she still hasn't really spoken to me about the why, when and all that.
And, as far as I know, she hasn't even spoken to her dad and stepmom, whom she's been in Florida with for the past week.
And, I haven't spoken to Dick (the guy who is my coworker) in 2 weeks.
And, dick and I are supposed to spend about 10 days together, in China, 2 weeks from now.

FABO-My bitchy sister who bails at the last minute because she claims she didn't get enough notice on what was going on even though plans were made on when and where to meet last week.  This is one of the numberous times she's bailed on me and my folks causing my dad to eat ticket costs for shows.  
FABO-I was planning to go up to Columbus to see my other sister for her birthday with my mom and bitchy sister but won't be going because I don't want to deal with her all afternoon.  I don't have the patience for her.  I don't want to go off and ruin the day for everyone or be in a foul mood all day (this weekend is already shaping up for being the suck).  So I'm going to have to bail even though I was looking forward to going and haven't seen my other sister in months.

there's a guy there in his 70s who looking around and looking at me like i was about to steal something...for god's sake,i'm a straight laced man in my 30s who never stole a thing from there. i was pretty miffed. turns out that he only does this to black people because of the usual adage(which i won't go about on here)

STB - that sucks.  I sort of dealt with the same thing when I was in Sydney - I went in to some cd/video store that was in Chinatown.  The whole place was in another language (chinese? Korean? japanese? I couldn't tell) but I was enjoying seeing movies and music that I'd never heard of before.  A minute after walking in, a store employee asks if she can help me with anything. I say no, I'm just looking.  I notice about 30 secs. later that she's still there.  About a minute after that, as I'm in another aisle, she's moved to where she can follow me with her eyes.  A few minutes go by and I realize she's completely following me around the store.  I get pissed at this - what, because I'm not Asian means I'm going to steal something?  Man, leave me alone!  

So I decide to have fun with her.  I go to the front and see a section for their Best Sellers.  I think, if everyone is buying these selections, then maybe they're worth perusing.  I notice the door is propped open.  So I stand near those cds and was trying to coyly look to see when she turns away.  The moment she does, I bolt out the door.  Just to make her wonder...

I don't know.  Of course, I didn't take anything, but if you're going to have a store, you're going to have to have a certain level of trust in people.  As you say, I'm a straight-laced guy.  I've never shop-lifted in my life.  So I just don't get it sometimes...

James Vincent Faraci
June 30,1923 - April 15,2005
Jimmy Vincent was the legendary drummer who created the mold for all who would follow. Louis would always sing his name at the beginning of Sing, Sing, Sing as he did on the classic Majestic recording…
"Jimmy Vincent…Jimmy Vin-Cent!!!"
Originally born James Faraci, he was like Louis’ Italian brother.They played golf together, had great fun together, and created some of the most important music of all time together. Louis and Jimmy have been reunited and are together again making beautiful music today.

BTW, is there a phone number to call to report possible drunk drivers via your cell phone? I didn't want to call 911 because it wasn't an emergency, but I really felt this guy was going to cause an accident.

MK, there's a phone number for the highway watch program. Most truck drivers are now members, I'll see if I can dig it up, it's a 1-800 # but they accept calls about any activity that would be seen as suspicious or dangerous. I'll post it for you if I can find it.

all you have to do is be around for 5 years, pay $15K, and attend the dedication ceremony.

Rain in China seems to cause some serious traffic issues. It took about 3 hours to drive what should have taken one hour. And, the drivers here are fuckin' crazy. We were on the correct side of the road, but there was some sort of accident, so, everyone just crossed the yellow lines and started driving on 2.5 of the oncoming 4 lanes of traffic. Not that the "lanes" really seem to matter, and nobody uses signals. And then there's the scooters... don't get me started.

Double FABO:

Spent time with Dick over the weekend. Our whole little group hung out, walking, sightseeing, and shopping. I'd rather spend time with some sort of enormous golden Budda statue shoved up my arse. And, while we shopped, I had the feeling that Dick was buying gifts for my wife.

How can you think that this is the right course of action?

FABO: (guess what this will be about?)

Today is the 2 month anniversary of my wife moving out. Sunday, I said I wanted to get together and talk. She said she wasn't ready, she was too busy, and she needed to find the right words.
And, last night, I had the intuition to go to her apartment, at 7:30. His car was there. Called her and left a message that said "Guess you're still too busy to talk about this with me. Looks that way from here."

I went back after 10:00. Still there. So, I stuck around. And at almost 11:00, they walked out, him carring the suitcase that I'll bet recently contained the aforementioned gifts from China. And they kissed. And hugged. And kissed again. So, I started the car, and drove out. I saw him looking at me in the rearviewmirror. So, he saw me, at least.

Her email today mentioned nothing about it, basically "I'm not sure what to say, or how. I guess what I've said wasn't clear enough to your satisfaction."
I replied, "What you said hasn't been clear enough. But me seeing you kissing him last night was pretty clear."

berzerker,
I know I don't know you very well (or vice versa), but I really feel for you.  I went thru something similar (granted, i haven't read the whole thread, so I don't know all the details) and it was incredibly tough to deal with.  I was able to get my wife to stay after the affair.  Looking back, I wish I hadn't.  The marriage still eventually ended after more crap.  I thought about doing all kinds of rash things.  I am glad I didnt.   When all is said and done, you will have the knowledge that you did all you could do and did the right thing despite all that is happening.  It isnt much now, but it is a lot later on.  I know it sounds like the same lame advice that everyone gives, but , it will get better.  It might take a while, but it will.  Until then, remember that a lot of people care about you.

FABO:  I just got back from a meeting with my boss and our section is being restructured.

The immediate implication is that there is no way in hell for me to make the festivities this weekend.

The long term implication is unclear, but potentially grim.  At best I'm being assigned high-risk/high-profile project that would put me under all kinds of pressure and generally turn my life into a pile of suck for about 8 months, but could tremendously help my career... if I wanted to advance in this field.

Does that elipsis imply that that's a big if for you, or am I infering incorrectly?
Title: FABO...for randomville...
Post by: rva on May 16, 2005, 05:30:48 PM
Yeah, it's a big if.  Probably 1/3 of this is that my boss's hand is forced by getting assigned this project, 1/3 of it is an intentional bit of tough love, and 1/3 of it is that in the long run, he really needs me to shit or get off the pot.  

Thing is,  I've had the opportunity to do stuff like this before and I've sorta punted on it.  I'd rather do the less stressful, less people-oriented computery-shit.  But they have someone to do that now, so if I'm to be of use to the section this is what I have to do.  

Basically, it's career/gut-check time.  If I want to work in this field, this is where my skills are best-suited, this is what I should want to do, and this is what I will have to do if I want to advance.   Honestly, if I were my boss I would have done the exact same thing to me because it just makes so much sense any way you look at it.

At least I hope this is all that's going on.  I hope it's not "let's give him something he hates and will fail at so we can get him out."

Well see, I already asked for Friday off and got it.   And it's been revoked because of this new thing.  It would look highly suspicious if someone suddenly came down sick or died.

But mostly I can't do it because it's too important.  I mean no one is going to die if I don't come in on Monday prepared.  No it's not fair I have to work this weekend but part of the job is you have to eat some shit and pull some extra hours every once in a while.  If it happens all the time then I can complain or get out but like I said, if I were my boss I would be doing the exact same thing.  And I know if I were in other people's positions I would be super-pissed if someone pulled this stunt on me. Bottom line is, it just ain't cool.  

Sorry guys, you know I'd be there in a flash if there were any way to make this happen.

She's right, know what they're replacing it with? A show starring Jennifer Love Hewitt called "the ghost whsiperer", it's about a woman who relays messages from the dead to the living. Sound like something already on nbc? Yep. Oh, and why did they do this? Because Moonves thinks that someone talking to the dead might have more appeal to younger viewers than someone talking to God.

Season did finish out, according to CBS's list of season finales (http://www.cbs.com/info/2005_finales/) the finale was in April.

FABO:- Our builders calling last night to say they want to commence work on our major remodel.  Problem being they are starting this morning, one day before the Randomville party. Deep fucking joy.

FABO2:- Another problem that has happened with the house having serious financial - and other - ramifications.

FABO:  I let "someone" borrow my golf clubs to play a round with her father while me and this "someone" might have been dating.  Shortly there after we had a really messy breakup and this "someone" won't give me my goddamn clubs back.  I keep telling myself that calling the cops and reporting them stolen is a better last resort than hiring a troupe of ninjas.

This may sound obvious, but have you tried going by her house and asking for her to give them to you?  I think I'd try that first.

She lives in an apartment where you have to be buzzed in... whenever I stop by she refuses to buzz me in.... when I call her she is always "just about to do something else" and when I email she is always "just on her way to a meeting"... Not to sound short, but I have really exhausted a lot of options in trying to get them.  Today was the icing on the cake because I got her to promise on Wednesday that she would give them back yesterday.  Then yesterday she "fell asleep early and did not want to get up and give them to me".  Today she is leaving for Indy straight after work and does not want to have to stop by her apartment.  Grrr... I am getting angrier just typing this.

Of course, calling the cops and reporting them stolen will burn ALL bridges btwn the two of you.  So use that option cautiously.  Clearly there's not much of a bridge as it is, but in case you were thinking maybe you could be friends in a year or so...calling the cops won't allow for that.

This works, sometimes. Steve had to do this to a "friend" who borrowed his cargo van so she could move out of one apartment and into another. She was supposed to have it for one day, we went away for the weekend and came back--it still wasn't returned. She didn't return his calls, so he left a message basically saying "You've had it for much longer than you said you needed it for, my vehicles are not your auxilary transportation, please return it to me before I go back on the road or I will call the police and report it stolen." Magically she called him back and dropped it off that evening.

Now, if she's vindictive, you may get them back--but in pieces.  So, be careful Tom.

Tom, if it will get your clubs back, I'm willing to seduce her and steal away with your golf clubs in the middle of the night.  Just PM me her digits.  This way no one is harmed or arrested, you get your sticks back, and your ex gets some frustratingly disappointing nooky.  It's a win-win-win!

Got a friend who can go to her house and get the clubs back for you?  She obviously doesn't want to see you in person, so send TheStuntCock or someone in your stead.

fabo (this is from yesterday): driving down the street to the hospital for my doctor's appointment and passing the local planned parenthood and seeing signs that say "they're killing babies inside, right now!" and "Allow your baby to have a birthday." combined with images that can only be described as grotesque. And one smug little man, with more signs in the back of his suv. Sorry, there are kids that go through that area--do they really need to see that? I don't think so.

Several years ago, wendy was pulling out of a planned parenthood (to get pills) and one of those smug little men was blocking her view of traffic with his sign. she couldn't see past him, so he looked back in the direction of traffic, and waved her forward.
She moved up a little, in time to see a semi coming in the curb lane. If she would have gone, she would have been hit right in the driver's side.
Smug little man kind of smiled and shrugged, like "maybe next time..."
