I think this is post #1057. Looks like I made it past 1054 without getting excommunicated. Still Orthodox  :D.
I sleep deprived drunk. When I read #1057 I started trying to estimate log base 2 of the number.

I am not kidding.

I hope to have a spiritual break through at Vespers.

Please tell me this is another example of your brilliance. Otherwise I might weep. And is Bill McNeal a real person? Or a character?

There is always one idiot at the bar that doesnt seem to notice that the hot bartender is calling everybody else "darlin" too.

A character on the sitcom Newsradio (see third person here). I bought the series (again) a couple months ago and have been watching some of the episodes recently.

Today is one of those days where my heart is overflowing with love. I think I terrified everyone I came in contact with today.

About 50% of stuff moved. Whoo! Have to work, although all I want to do is curl up in bed and watch Big Love, eat KFC, and drink a large Slurpee sized cup of Pepsi.

Addendum... here's the end of the episode, in which Bill McNeal says the line... (he says alternative lines during the rest of the episode, which are also funny... but then I think the whole show is funny)

Congrats for getting some stuff moved anyway :)

Wow. How did I forget that. Phil Hartman was genius. And it is where I first learned to hate Joe Rogan.

Watched it in syndication off and on. Phil Hartman went out badly.

RIP.

Today was the first time in a month and a half that my girls didn't want to play Mario Kart, and the first time in about four months that my daughter Sahara didn't want to watch Willy Wonka. I feel so refreshed!  ;D

A few minutes ago...

My 7-year-old daughter: "Papa, I'm having trouble falling asleep."

Me: "Well, when you wake up in the morning we'll see what we can do about that."

My 7-year-old daughter: "ok."

Aw, so cute! I also get impatient with new Mario Kart players since I have to end up taking the controller for them or they start crying (and they're a TAD older than your daughters, too ;) ). Glad that you had fun with them!

Last night Mr. Ismi and I went out to dinner with a group of friends...among which was one of his exes, who I had never met previously. AND we sat next to each other the entire time. She also dated a friend of his for several years...a friend who is now engaged to MY best friend. Awkward on all counts. Actually, it wasn't bad, though. I accidentally mentioned their names a few times, but oh well. It could have been much worse, theoretically.

Back to the salt mines today! Everything is moved in to the new apartment, but only about 20% is organized. I have so many blacks and blues from tripping over all the random boxes everywhere. We also made a massive run to Target, spent a fortune, and then realized that we forgot another 15 things. We rock.

Heh, I suppose I am using this as my ranting thread.  8)

I was on the phone with a company, and they were trying to sell me something else. It was apparently a great deal, discount, whatever. I didn't want to sign onto anything without thinking about it and talking to Mr. Ismi about it, just to weigh our options. Every time I told him that I wasn't interested, he kept telling me that I didn't understand that I didn't have to put money down, whatever, and I was just ready to scream at him. I refuted him five times and he kept repeating the terms to me.

Honestly, does he think that implying that I'm not smart enough to understand the proposal is going to get me to buy it? I know that these people have a job to do, but ugh. I should have just hung up on him after the first "No."

Do I NOT have the right to overpay for whatever service I want, at my convenience? Thank you, sir. I hate when they act like you're a complete moron for not taking Deal X. Even if it is a good deal, it's not like I can't find another one somewhere else.  ::)

well it is a random thread so, rant away

this is like when the supermarket has buy one get one free offers and i buy one and i leave the free one there. At the check out the lady is like...."these are buy one get one free" and im like "Thanks for telling me but i only want one ".... then she s like..... "but the other one is FREE" haha.... and so i say " i know but i dont want two, thanks" and she will argue with me in disbelief and some even get snotty about me wasting money as well..... i usually say that i got a rich dad that allows me to waste money or .... i have a dad who beats me if i come back with more shpping than we actually can use i a week lolOl Just to be annoying

Your right IsmiLiora, why cant you just have what you want or need no matter if other people think your not saving money or not. Its your money. Even if i am skint i will never buy cheap bathroom tissue or cheap baked beans but other stuff i might buy the cheapest of it. But not them two items.

Telemarketer: "But this is such a great deal barg(*) noggle sfaus and it would save you money fnarg wharf ogle spaus..."

Me: "Negative.  Time is money and you are quickly becoming a luxury I cannot afford."

*If I have to listen to words that annoy me for any length of time I begin to subconsciously replace them with words that humour me.

Yes, I do that too! Sometimes I really only need just one. And moving from a townhouse to an apartment...I really don't need any more things. Cashiers question me about it, too. "Do you need the free one?"

Now, if it's makeup or something, I am definitely taking advantage. ;)

Vamrat, LOL, did you actually tell the dude that? I don't have the guts. Although I admit that I was getting very aggressive at the end of the phone call. That's what happens when you start talking to me like a child. I do feel horrible for telemarketers, though. I don't know who actually seeks out a job of being a telemarketer. There is a lot of pressure on you to get people to sign up. Luckily for us, all we have to do is disconnect the call.

Genesisone, labels like that crack me up. I always find labels funny, as some of them are so ridiculous. But I guess some dieters are just snatching that honey up! Works for the companies to have such inane advertising tactics, I guess.

At nearby shops, "Buy one, get one free" implies "Buy just one for half-price." Usually works out that way, too.

Now that I'm an area governor in the Toastmasters organization, I'm beginning to learn what that means: three training presentations in five days. They're going to make a teacher out of me yet. :laugh:

Or should it be more along the lines of mea culpa?

Had another embarrassing OC.net appearance in my dream last night. At one point, I was reading a newspaper. I read an article about ialmisry being a mass murderer, with his victims being elijahmaria and Wyatt. And yes, their actual screen names appeared in the paper.

Won't go into the rest of the dream, too confusing.

Last night was one of those nights where I planned something for dinner and realized that X wasn't good anymore, we didn't have enough of X, and the dish ended up being completely different. I ended up stirfrying green peppers and chicken in oil, with a lot of garlic, soy sauce, and some lemon juice. Since the rice went bad, I cooked Ramen noodles until they were nearly transparent and added them to the skillet. 

I don't know what it was, because that dish was so simple, but I could have eaten 3 bowls of it. We wolfed it down in 5 minutes. Wish I made more.
