        Sept. 4, 2005,

:  About a month ago, I hit my low point. I was sleeping on the bus bench outside BIFF!, I won't even MENTION the Trans-Sexual episode! -  then going home to my parents place for about
a week, only to have to change my mother's shit-filled commode & pull my father back into bed after he would fall out in the middle of the night.
I really don't see how much lower you could get.
   Well, here it is early September, I just spent a week in a god-sent hostle that only cost me $24.00 a night, & while I hated the idea of having to share
a room with a bunch of snoring strangers, it was a helluva lot cheaper than $130.00 a night at the wallett-raping Motels I had been staying in previous, AND more importantly, WASN'T a bus bench.
Cut-to today.  I am writing this on my computer at a music store, which my boss BIFF! - more of a friend really, not even the authoratative type, but he has
graciously allowed me to crash in his store, displaying incredible faith in me. Not only have I had the BEST couple nights sleep I've had all summer, but I'm finding
songs in the store, that I've been looking for for over 25 years!
I mean, I didn't even apply for any kind of job here, I just happened to meet BIFF! at the other hostle, who happened to know BIFF!,
who happened to need a computer guy & I, who have always loved music just happened to be looking for work, suddenly have this
brand-spanking new powerful system at my disposal at work, I am appointed I.T. guy, without so much as a boo at my credentials, I mean
seriously, how could one NOT beleive in god with all this good fortune?  Add to that, the many friends I have made here so far, Nanaimo is just such a perfect fit for me.

So, here it is - Sunday. I am sitting in my barracks(room) here in Nanny,
& already I am questioning the wisdom of BOTH my weening myself off the dope
and moving here.  This one guy, dave seems nice enough, but he's a little too
chummy for my comfort. He doesen't yet seem to read that I'm not really looking
for friends here. I made the mistake of announcing mein intentions this morning
to walk to 7-11, at which he quickly invited himself along. While he wasn't bad company,
I still didn't really want anybody along.  That was supposed to my private think time.
& when I got to the mall & nearly had 2 run-ins with people who had the nerve to
either wait to use the phone I was on, or would saddle up next to me & use the phone beside mine.
The NERVE of these people. Does NOBODY own a cell phone in this god-forsaken Redneck town?
  So, I toughed it out & finally was able to get some so called private time to leave my message
for Cakes, in which I realyed my irritation at people. Obviously I'm not in the best of moods here.
Yes, my beat-offs are back to their satisfying norm, but the trade-off, of course is my
is my irritability & general dislike of people once again. Should make
things interesting when it comes time to look for a new job.
   Speaking of which - that time is comming VERY quickly.  I estimate
a matter of weeks now.  I've probably got the rest of October to bum around, but come Nov.
I'll HAVE to get a job, as my U.I. runs out after that.  GOD, I PRAY I don't just settle for
the 1st thing that comes up, like I did this place - although I could do worse I suppose,
I still DEARLY miss my old place.
from ex-security chumps.
Scarred with Graffitti, she stood throughout the years.
Cholking grip of progress, raining bitter tears.
Long live the shack. Long live the shack.
Something,something .....
blah,blah...
And so in ten summers, we'll wonder Still Creek way.
To see you rise from ashes, to live another day.
Long live the shack.Long live the shack.

   It's Sunday at 7:30 am & I have just listened to my daily messages of Cakes
going through the old tapes & I just felt like writing down the lyrics
to Long Live The Shack for some reason.
  Theres no denying that Dan's detailed description in his messages makes me
yearn for those days of innocence, where absolutely nothing mattered.
My god, where DID 1989 go?
   TRoday, I am just sitting on my bed here in Nanaimo, just living day to day
Knowing I'm gonna have to find a job & soon. In 9 weeks my U.I. runs out & I'm
gonna have to work again. Meanwhile, I'm getting along fine with my roomates here,
although I can't wait till Doug & Dave move out next month.  I've already started exposing
them to the full dose of BIFF!, in hopes that they'll back off being so chummy.
I really don't want to get too close to anyone right now. Paul is enough
but what I REALLY wish is to meet a girl finally. I came close with BIFF!- so who knows?
Maybe the odds are better here. From what I hear, they're supposed to be.
   Not much to report here, I'm just taking the day off & waiting for someone to put some
coffee on.


to investigate doug's charity scam. I figure I should at least
check it out, before I kibosh it. I owe myself that much at least.  watched the movie: This Boy's Life last night,
courtesy of Paul.  There were a couple of fight scenes, really violent I had to hold back
& restrain myself from biting in front of the guys. yes, even those
old habits have returned.  I mean, there's just something about
men fighting. I don't know.

Ah for that sweet while where you've just downed your coffee & you're just waiting for the effects to kick in.
Thursday morning, Oct 27, 2005 & already I've managed to duck two people.  While on the way back from the store,
I'm pretty sure Greg passed me on his bike, no doubt circling like a Vulture in search of his beloved BIFF!
  & of course, the nanno-second I set foot in the door, Paul calls for me & I quickly inform Larry I'm not in.
Maybe I should just give in to my male adorers. Except for BIFF!, I've never had any females pursue me like these two.
Maybe they're tied in to my creditors.  I wouldn't be surprised.
   I stil can't seem to bring myself to go looking for work & I know why.  I've become too comfortable in my current
situation & why not?  All I have to do to get some money is remember to file a false 2 minute report via telephone
every 2nd friday & VIOLA! - instant $$$ come Tuesday. I know that I'll have to do something very soon & I've made up my
mind to go down to the Enjoyment office Monday.
 I returned from the loveables Wed night (nov 2) & had an enjoyable crossing
on the chowican. There was maybe like 50 people aboard & unlike my previous
trip on the joke bay, where I did nothing, but sit in my seat the whole trip,
This time, I actually went to the cafeteria & indulged - deviating somewhat
from mein diet, however I did manage to excercise some restraint, whereby
I ordered the fries without the burger, as well as fruit salad & salad & a
a bran muffin.  Of note, I noticed as we were pulling in, the Alberro was tied up at
berth #3 for some reason. Unfortunately, I couldn't take many pictures, as I was tied
down with all my baggage, including a garbage bag, carrying the rest of
my jerseys, which was barely able to hold together until I got out of
the cab calloway at which point, the bag conveniently fell apart.
  Speaking of cabs, I was a little amazed when the ferry got in at 10:30,
& there wasn't a single cab to be seen. I actually had to call for one, as did many other people
which-of course, cause dme to go into a tirade about people not driving
cars & not taking a bus, I'm sure anyone within earshot knew I was nuts.
   But I got home, to find the old boys still up, of course & I greeted them
& soon went to sleep.
  THURSDAY(Nov 3) , was my action day.  I awoke to the usual stirrings of 1 Douglas C
& decided rather than wait till Monday, I would go to the U.I. office today
so without even showering, I dressed, put on a splash of accidentally too much cologne
& waited outside in the monsoon for the bus.  And, of course - when I got to the UI office
just after 8:00, I find out that it doesn't actually open till 9! - great!  So now I have
to kill off an hour in the pouring cold rain & there just HAPPENS, by co-incidence to be
a coffee shop right across the street. I wasn't gonna deviate from my coffee diet, so I
instead, did go to the coffee shop on the waterfront, j-avawocky & ordered a wholewheat bagel
& token small cappucino, which I hardly touched & sat at the front window & witnessed
the wind & rain fury, which had cancelled both the harbourlinx & bc ferry sailings that morning.
   well after an hour or so of sitting in the comparitively warm & cozy coffee shop, it was time'to get going, so I headed up to the
u.i. office where they promptly redirected me to an office further down the street, where I fille dout some forms
& managed to fire off my resume to nco. I really don't want to work there, but i figured it
would be a wise move to cover my ass. better to have too many options open, rather than too few.
   Next, I was referred to Stephanie, who told me about this pay for training thing.  wanting to investigate
this further, I then was referred to Nigel, whom took me into his office & closed the door.  
Immediately when that dooe closed, I felt the the pressure of being in a job interview,
even though I actually wasn't, I still realized that when the time comes, to sit down for
a real one, I'm gonna miss the dope.
   I'm still not sure just exactly what transpired in that meeting, but I think I started the process
of signing up for the paid training thing, which ultimately, i hope will extend my u.i.
i never thought i'd find myself shilling for a charity. but that's xactly what i found myself doing today.
credit 1 douglas c for working on me long enough to make it seem palatable.  
you'll only have to stand & hold a box, is how he presented it.  somewhat like the impression muffy gave me back in '92
where he was able to goof off all night & record at cakes's place.  well just like back in '94, I was brought back down to earth when i actually tried it.
there i was. in the freezing, blowing cold rain, doing something that was SO not me.
i tried to look comfortable, but i was soaled, i was wet & I was cold.  i'm sure the only reason i got anything
was people took pity on me for being so courageous.
   well, as unpleasant an exprience as it was, after saying: "Hi there - we're helping children with cerebral palsy today."
& feeling so imsencere, doug finally showed up, after what seemed an eternity, but astonishingly, turned out was just over 2 hours!
I actually had a bit of a lesson in generosity, as people were surprisingly generous.  whether it was because i did such a good job, or
they were just of a charitable nature - I don't know, but despite all this, I managed to raise about $120.00. not bad for someone who only spent a couple of hours &
basically had no idea what he was doing. But when doug showed up around 2 pm & decided to close up shop,
I was so greatful. That was the HARDEST couple of hours work i have ever put in, in my life. I don't know if I could ever go through that again, even though I took home nearly $40.00
for my suffering. that's my first taste of volunteer work.
and to think, I always thought volunteers never got paid for what they did. i know so little about this world.
so, i get home & almost immediately jump into a semi-hot bath, when the other doug, douglas c has some visitors. I could hear them, through the paper thin walls, telling him
how he better watch out, because "Dimitri" was after him. Ultimately realizing, I was gonna have to meet these guys, as it was clear,
they were intent on settling in for the long term, I made my bold entrance & soon won their favor. well of course, the beer & dope soon started flowing & soon we had a full-blown party on our hands.
pretty tame really, but the fact there were so many substances around, made it evil.
so I fraternized with the constructicons & at least won their inebriated respect, no matter how temporary.
Still, it's good to know, that at least I didn't make any new enemies.  & as a capper, I put on my famous drunk act for douglas c
& have just completed a dramatic "run to the bathroom" for effect. He seems to buy it
& my hope is for him to be so pissed at those guys for "making me fall off the wagon" that he'll tell larry & make sure they never come around again.
 - ain't I a stinker?
 Greg is a f*cking psycho-stalker.  He ACTUALLY came here, again today at his regularly scheduled hour between 8 & 9 pm as he's been doing now for every 2 days for a month & actually made his way right to my room & opened the door TO MY ROOM to see if I was home.  This has got to stop. I've never felt threatened in this way in my life, but now I've got this idiot that just WON'T TAKE A f*ckING HINT!!!
  Any normal individual would have gotten the message & f*cked off by now, but when you come calling every 2nd day & intrude right into my room - I'm sorry, but you need help.  This is getting to be a real pain in the ass, not only for myself, but the guys here are getting pretty sick of it & it's only a matter of time now, before my hand will be forced to congront Greg & tell him to just f*ck-off.
   IN other news, it's now day 8 of my diet & excercise plan, & althoughI had ambitions to stop off at Nanaimo Illitreracy then go to the academy of learning, it didn't turn out that way. I had a "breakfast" of 1 bananna then walked to N.I. where I spent 3 hrs, thanx to their ridiculously slow bvandwidth & when I was done, it was just before noon.  Well, I headed for the bus stop, with the intention of finding this place, but instead, I found myself walking back home, having a quick toss to the possibility thst Jo_ann(another person who doesn't know when to take a hint) was back in town & what fantastic sex we might have if we were to meet up.  Keeping faith with my plan, I then biked to the vide store & invested $25.00 in 10, well (2) movies really plus 8 star trek episodes.  It seemed like a worthwhile endevour.
  Next I biked to the sally ann & frittered about. I amy be reading too much into it, but a grey, lonh haired employee there gave me a special greeting. She has an ok ass, but she must be at least 50.  Still, if I thought there was an opening, I'd f*ck her.  
   So, I completed my excercise for the day & biked back home, with a token pair of headphones in hand & made a dinner of soup & veggi's & of course, as I said at the start, Greg made his intrusion around 8:30. f*ck!  I just get steamed thinking about it.  Why me?  Why must all the losers in the universe gravitate towards me?? I mean, SERIOUSLY.  What IS it about me?
DIET & EXCERCISE DAY # 8
  I awoke early, as usual & after a bananna, decided to get an early start on my biking, so I rode down to the pub & back up Bruce for a good 20 min workout.  I returned home, showered & after discovering I made an error in my bus schedule estimation, I made a rather hasty walk into town , where I attended the info session on this paid-for-education thing. I discovered a few more barriers to my plan - speaking of which, I am beginning to question that now.  I mean really - all I'm looking for is a job I can attend & get rugular pay for.  And if it comes down to it, it looks like I could almost immediately have a job at Price security, as it appears they're taking applications.
  So, anyhoo -I then followed up that session, which I had another positive interaction with 2 native girls there, not to mention which, I would have loved to f*ck our instructor, Sandra.  She had a body just BUILT for f*cking. And of course, she's already married. I estimate her to be in her mid-40's at least, but she looks like she works out.
   Between meetings, I dropped in to see the "new girl" at the shop. She's anything BUT a "girl"  she's about 85, she's personable sure, but I wouldn't f*ck her on a bet. She seemed nice enough & does indeed fit the tag of placeholder for Paul - she even said so her herself.
   Next I proceeded on down to the waterfront, where I had a rather embarrasing situation develop.  I thought I saw Frank driving a Swiftsure cab & when I did a doubletake, the driver, whom it turned out was NOT Frank - pulled over for me. When I had to admit to him that it wasd a case of mousetaken indemnity, he seemed disappointed & who could blame him?  Of course now, it's little more than a trivial moment, but at the moment, I was going through it, it was mortifying to me.  Here is a classic example of where the dope would have been helpful.
   Next I went back to the office & met with Nigel Stentyford & continued my elimination round. I think I made it to the next round, as he assigned me a counsellor, which apparently you need to get on the gravytrain.  Next I went to the care office & borowsed the net for a bit, before walking back home & taking in a tape of Star trek, got in another half hour of bike riding, before enjoying a supper of tomato soup, with noodles & vegi's. David was kind enough to make a salad, which I helped myself to later. I headed to bed early, around 8:30 & surprisingly - Greg didn't come knocking.
DIET & EXCERCISE DAY # 9

   I awoke early again & after checking my Cakesian messages, biked for a good half hour, in the cold early morning.  I tried Doug's gloves & he was right. They ARE a lifesaver.  I'll definately have to pick up a pair for myself.
  After a shower, I walked into town, my eyes keeping an ever constant vigil for any ho's. I'm convinced they've all moved onto Haliburton.
  I printed my resume up at N.L.(Nanaimo Literacy), as well as did a token research into what coursed I may take, should my funding come through.  I highly doubt that I'll qualify.  At this stage, I'm preparing to go to Price Security, with the course being a pipe dream, but on the off-chance it does go through, I found the ideal course at The academy of learning. Only problem is tho, that apparently they (the academy) aren't a recognized institution as such, & if I was to take the course, I might not be able to do anything with my diploma.  I seem to be losing focus here. Originally, my plan was just to take a course, any course just so I could remain on ui, however the idea of getting my A+ IS very appealing & it would open all kinds of doors for me. I really need to focus.
   After N.L. I enjoyed a wonderful, but expensive lunch of chicken noodle soup at Lila's Deli. I never liked their prices, but the girls are nice.
  After that, I headed up to the shop, where I hung out with paul for a bit, after which I went over to the CARE centre to fire off my resume & try to further help my case, by looking like I have been applying for all sorts of jobs, but having no luck.
  Next, I walked back home & watched Star Trek again, for the 3'd time on the same tape. I really want to get bang for my buck with the movies I purchased AND I want them to last awhile, as it's gonna be a LONG winter without cable, but again - it's probably a good thing that I won't have such a distraction, as I really need to focust all my energy now on this project.
   The weather was good, so I headed out for another little bike trip, during which I kinda broke down & bought another bag of chocolate alamnonds. I really needed them this time, I actually was DYING for them.  Well,after another joyful outing, I returned home, put on Biloxi Blues again, convinced Douglas C wouldn't be back for the rest of the night, maybe more, I put on supper around 7, & of course, that's when they returned.  f*ck, I'll be glad when those 2 leave, if - in fact they ever do. Oh sure, they're nice guys - but there's just something about them, that makes me a little uneasy around them.
   Keeping my plan for my diet, I dined on a can of vegetable soup & veggis & found this surprisingly filling.

I had a real triumph of spirit today.  What had originally started out as a phone call to the Academy Of Learning, to find out about their courses, turned out to be a visit, in which I actually took their entrance exam & passed with 80%!

watch out for jumping fish, do you get jumping fish in Vancouver? Over here when you get on the lake this asian crap which isnt suppose to be here anyway gets scared and jumps out of the water like a missile. lol

And its awesome when it rains and the wind picks up on the lake, the waves get higher then the boat and you feel like you are out in the sea or something.

I dont use all the things we have cause theres only so much of the water I can take.. I work on it now. lol.

So the canoe, laserII sailboat sit there alot. The skiboat we take out lots during the summer.

  And yes, we do have jumping fish SD, but not the asian kind you are talking about. When Im out fishing I see a fair number of fish jumping in the early morning and at night around dinner time when the tide changes.. thats when fish eat.

Get better soon, JJ.  There seems to be that buy going around.  

I got this multivitamin pack from Costco's that came with about 6 different pills... It says to take it daily but I'll just take it twice a week.  It looks VERY potent!

So I didn't get any diamonds in my stocking......but I DID get the coolest potato gloves.  

  They're rough gloves that are perfect for washing up those little baby nuggets or big bakers.  These things are great !!!

 Hmm, I got hi-lights too.  

 Here's something really pointless.

 One of our contact had an "out of office message" (through Microsoft Outlook) saying that he was out of the office for today because he was attending a funeral.  

 I wonder why he would put that in his out of office message.

 Oh, and I rather be at home instead of work.  But you probably knew that.   So, how did I do, Gophie?

Being male, middle class and white
Its a b*tch, if you dont believe
Listen up to my new cd
Sham on

I got sh*t running through my brain
So intense that I cant explain
All alone in my white boy pain
Shake your booty while the band complains

Im rocking the suburbs
Just like michael jackson did
Im rocking the suburbs
Except that he was talented
Im rocking the suburbs
I take the checks and face the facts
That some producer with computers
Fixes all my sh*tty tracks

Im pissed off but Im too polite
When people break in the mcdonalds line
Mom and dad you made me so uptight
Im gonna cuss on the mic tonight
I dont know how much I can take
Girl give me something I can break

Im rocking the suburbs
Just like quiet riot did
Im rocking the suburbs
Except that they were talented
Im rocking the suburbs
I take the checks and face the facts
That some producer with computers
Fixes all my sh*tty tracks

In a haze these days
I pull up to the stoplight
I can feel that somethings not right
I can feel that someones blasting me
With hate and bass
Sending dirty vibes my way
Cause my great great great great grandad
Made someones great great great great grandaddy slaves
It wasnt my idea
It wasnt my idea
It never was my idea
I just drove to the store
For some preparation h

Yall dont know what its like
Being male, middle class and white
It gets me real pissed off and it makes me wanna say
F**k

Just like jon bon jovi did
Im rocking the suburbs
Except that he was talented
Im rocking the suburbs
I take the checks and face the facts
That some producer with computers
Fixes all my sh*tty tracks these days
Im rocking the suburbs
Youd better look out because Im gonna say f**k

Green tea can be harmful in large quantities
10:00 05 May 2007
From New Scientist Print Edition


  Green tea is good for you, but only if drunk in moderation. While the polyphenols in green tea are credited with preventing heart disease and cancer, it seems they can cause liver and kidney damage if consumed in very large quantities, a review of studies into the toxicity of polyphenols has shown.

"People shouldn't be too alarmed by this, but those taking supplements may experience problems," says lead author Chung Yang of Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey.

He stresses that up to 10 small cups of green tea a day is fine. Problems are likely in people who take supplements, which can contain up to 50 times as much polyphenol as a single cup of tea.

Yang's review cites experiments in which rodents and dogs died from liver poisoning when given very large doses of polyphenols. He also reports cases of people with liver toxicity after overdosing on green-tea-based supplements. Their symptoms disappeared when they stopped taking the pills, only to return when they started taking them again (Chemical Research in Toxicology, vol 20, p 583).      
Title: Re: The "I have nothing Interesting to Say" Thread
Post by: P.C. on Jan 15 08 08:39
Weird.  That study doesn't really say anything negative about green tea.  The study isn't complete or conclusive yet and the only concerns seemed to be with highly concentrated extracts in pill form.  It also says that tea in regualr doses is beneficial to the liver.

  I'd get a second opinion....lol

Don't waste your time on weather sites or weather channels.  

  Here is my fail-proof, always accurate method for weather forecasting.

  Stick your head out the window....if it gets wet....take an umbrella.

If it gets white....wear a touque.

If your hair gets messy.....wear a touque.

If it's hot....take your touque off.

  It really works.

    *also, if the cows are laying down.....it means it's going to rain.

It's all a farce.  12 grains is actually code for a 12 day non-hand washing baking session.(http://discoverseattle.net/forums/richedit/smileys/10.gif)

  Does anyone know if the sandwich place that used to be in Coquitlam Centre, called Ruffage, is still there....or anywhere ?  That bread was THE yummiest ever.  It was darker than the black pumpernickle....but soft textured.  DE-lish.  I used to get the shrimp, avocado, alphalfa sprouts with a skiff of mayo.

I've convinced myself he is ok.  I couldn't go and look, because I'm not very good at looking at things that might have a leg hanging off or something.  So I just came inside.  Then I was feeling horrible that he was out there maybe suffering.  I mustered up my courage and went to rescue him and he was gone.  I'm thinking he might have been playing dead?

Difficulties  associated with ADHD include:[/p]                       [ul type="disc"][li]Distractibility [/li][li]Memory problems[/li][li]Disorganization[/li][li]Procrastination[/li][li]Chronic boredom[/li][li]Low self-esteem[/li][li]Chronic lateness
 [/li][li]Restlessness[/li][li]Depression[/li][li]Mood swings[/li][li]Anxiety[/li][li]Relationship problems[/li][li]Poor social skills[/li][li]Underachievement[/li][/ul]
I swear this is one giant joke. I've never seen such a indepth list on the plight of ADHD people. This list would be freaking hysterical if it wasn't true.

Ah, I better make a mental note of that and check Mr PL's pupils..  So, if it dilates 100x, that's a good thing, right?  Or, should I send him to the Doc for a thorough examination and get the Doc's opinion on HDTV?

The next few weeks I've got a distraction in the EURO Football (Soccer) Championships.
July Tour de France rolls around

But you can't avoid this, it is everywhere. Commercials on tv, radio, internet, billboards on the highway, bumper sticker nation, yard signs, it's all people talk about unless you follow the Cardinals religiously and I don't.

Only way to avoid all of this is to find a cave somewhere. lol

This shit never ends.

Fox News Channel referred to Michelle Obama as "Obama's baby mama" in a graphic on Wednesday, the latest in a trio of references to the Democratic presidential campaign that have given fuel to network critics.   The graphic "Outraged liberals: Stop picking on Obama's baby mama" was flashed during an interview with conservative columnist Michelle Malkin about whether Barack Obama's wife has been the target of unfair criticism. [/p]  In the past two weeks, Fox anchor E.D. Hill has apologized for referring to an affectionate onstage fist bump shared by the couple as a "terrorist fist jab," and Fox contributor Liz Trotta said she was sorry for joking about an Obama assassination.
[/p]
 "Obama's baby mama" was never said on the air. Malkin said during her interview that she had seen no gratuitous or cheap shots taken against Michelle Obama by Republican or conservative critics. [/p]   Joan Walsh, a columnist from Salon.com, criticized the graphic on Thursday as a slur. [/p]  "Do you try to explain that 'baby mama' is slang for the unmarried mother of a man's child, and not his wife, or even a girlfriend?" Walsh wrote. "Are they racist, or just clueless? Isn't there racism even in their cluelessness, if somebody didn't know what 'baby mama' means, but used it anyway? Even at Fox, won't somebody have to apologize?"
[/p] Hill's "terrorist fist jab" comment came in a tease to a segment on the candidates' body language, and it wasn't repeated during the subsequent interview. She told Fox it was taken from something she had read online. [/p]   No matter: "terrorist fist jab" quickly became an online sensation. [/p]  Hill apologized on-air four days after she said it. Hill said some people "thought I had personally characterized it inappropriately. I regret that. It was not my intention and I certainly did not mean to associate the word 'terrorist' in any way with Sen. Obama and his wife." [/p]   Fox subsequently cancelled Hill's weekday afternoon program as part of a larger reorganization. She remains on staff. [/p]  Trotta's assassination joke came May 25 as she commented about how some considered it distasteful for Clinton to refer to Robert F. Kennedy's assassination when explaining why she was staying in the presidential race. [/p]  "Now we have what some are reading as a suggestion that somebody knock off Osama," she said, quickly correcting herself. "Obama. Well, both if we could."
[/p]

Always looking on the bright side hey, SD.  [img onclick="selecte('sleepy.gif');" alt=emoticon src="http://www.pushupstairs.com/images/emoticon/blehnet/sleepy.gif" border=0]

    [SPAN style=": 18px"][FONT face="Comic Sans MS" color=#0000ff]Always Look on the Bright Side of Life[/FONT][/SPAN][SPAN style=": 14px"]

Some things in life are bad,
They can really make you mad,
Other things just make you swear and curse,
When you're chewing life's gristle,
Don't grumble,
Give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best.
And...

Always look on the bright side of life.
[[/SPAN][FONT color=#0000ff][SPAN style=": 14px"]whistle[/SPAN][/FONT][SPAN style=": 14px"]]
Always look on the light side of life.
[[/SPAN][FONT color=#0000ff][SPAN style=": 14px"]whistle[/SPAN][/FONT][SPAN style=": 14px"]]

If life seems jolly rotten,
There's something you've forgotten,
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps,
Don't be silly chumps.
Just purse your lips and whistle.
That's the thing.
And...

Always look on the bright side of life.
[[/SPAN][FONT color=#0000ff][SPAN style=": 14px"]whistle[/SPAN][/FONT][SPAN style=": 14px"]]
Always look on the right side of life,
[[/SPAN][FONT color=#0000ff][SPAN style=": 14px"]whistle[/SPAN][/FONT][SPAN style=": 14px"]]

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word.
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin.
Give the audience a grin.
Enjoy it. It's your last chance, anyhow.
So,...

Always look on the bright side of death,
[[/SPAN][FONT color=#0000ff][SPAN style=": 14px"]whistle[/SPAN][/FONT][SPAN style=": 14px"]]
Just before you draw your terminal breath.
[[/SPAN][FONT color=#0000ff][SPAN style=": 14px"]whistle[/SPAN][/FONT][SPAN style=": 14px"]]

Life's a piece of shit,
When you look at it.
Life's a laugh and death's a joke it's true.
You'll see it's all a show.
Keep 'em laughing as you go.
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.
And...

Always look on the bright side of life.
Always look on the right side of life.
[[/SPAN][FONT color=#0000ff][SPAN style=": 14px"]whistle[/SPAN][/FONT][SPAN style=": 14px"]]

Always look on the bright side of life!

Yes I am. Last 10 friends who have gotten married were forced because they didn't use 'protection' because condom use around here doesn't exist. St. Louis area has one of the highest rates of diseases in the country.
Nobody at 21 gets married these days to someone who's just getting out of high school that quickly these days around here.
It's either
She's pregnant or Economic Reasons.
Plus this kid is a goof ball hasn't finished school, dropped out of one university, said he 'picked up smoking because its cool', and acts like a wannabe bad ass poser.

I'm not talking about a type of perfume. I'm talking about names. Its like a women's and men's restroom.

doesn't matter what type or brand
When you say perfume the attendant will take you to women's fragrances.
Cologne is a code word for the men's section doesn't matter what type.

Lately though they want everyone to say fragrance. PC I guess.

[p class="textBodyBlack"][span id="byLine"][/span]"I think Obama would be a  disaster, and there's a lot of reasons," said Pollard, explaining the rumors he  had heard about the candidate from friends he goes camping with. "I understand  he's from Africa, and that the first thing he's going to do if he gets into  office is bring his family over here, illegally. He's got that racist [pastor]  who practically raised him, and then there's the Muslim thing. He's just not  presidential material, if you ask me."
[/p][p class="textBodyBlack"][span id="byLine"][/span]But on a  recent visit to his son's auto shop, Peterman overheard misinformed customers  talking again about a Muslim in the White House. [/p] [p class="textBodyBlack"][span id="byLine"][/span]"I don't know. The whole thing  just scares me," Peterman said. "I'm almost starting to feel like the best  choice is not voting at all."

So far, those who have pushed the truth in Findlay have  been rewarded with little that resembles progress. Gerri Kish, a 66-year-old  born in Hawaii, read both of Obama's autobiographies. She has close friends, she  said, who still refuse to believe her when she swears Obama is Christian. Then  she hands them the books, and they refuse to read them. "They just want believe  what they believe," she said. "Nothing gets through to them." [/p] [p class="textBodyBlack"][span id="byLine"][/span]The new advertisement running in  Findlay, in which Obama is pictured with his white mother and white grandparents  as talks about developing a "deep and abiding faith in the country I love" while  growing up in the Kansas heartland, is dismissed by residents of College Street  as the desperate lies of another dishonest Washington politician. And they say  that Obama's moves to put distance between himself and the Muslim community,  with his campaign declining invitations to visit mosques and Obama volunteers  removing two women in head scarves from the camera range at a rally in Detroit  last week are just a too-late effort to disguise his true beliefs. [/p] [p class="textBodyBlack"][span id="byLine"][/span]For the past month, two students  from the University of Findlay have spent their Tuesdays nights walking from  door to door in the city to tell voters about Obama. Erik Cramer and Sarah  Everly target Democrats and swing voters exclusively, but they've still  experienced mixed results. Sometimes, at a front door, they mention their  purpose only to have a dozen rumors thrown back at them and the door slammed  "People tell us that we're in the wrong town," Everly said.

  Its 4th of July and I just realized something while looking at the weather map on the Weather Channel.

I'm two train trips home (going two different ways) away from seeing all of the 48 minus Main, Vermont and New Hampshire. I'll see the last 3 whenever I head over to Montreal in the near future. Alaska should be easy, I'll just take the ferry to Prince Rupert then another ferry to Ketchikan a place I've always wanted to visit. Then Hawaii.  Unless you count Puerto Rico.

  Canada I want to do in a train ride get a pass from VIA where I can get off where ever I want and then get back on.

Hi PL, thanks for the info.

About your dilated exam, it's no biggie to go through. It allows the Optometrist to get a much better look at the structures at the back of the eye. Think of the view as looking through a porthole(undilated pupil) or a picture window (dilated pupil)

With a correction like yours, it is very important to ensure the retina & lattice are in good shape.

Hmm I don't think that's the case. I go to the ends of the Earth for people, I'm too nice to people and they end up running me over. Take simple things like emails. If someone emails me, I will email them back. I don't ignore people. Most of these people are into themselves too much to notice or they hold long standing grudges or always want to look down on me.

Nope. I've said before, I'm not political in person. Only on my facebook page, and in writing is when I become 'political'. In person I come off as a centrist, but I hate talking about politics unless I'm with my dad. I like the  journalistic aspect of politics. I don't go up to people and say not this is how I see the world, this is how it needs to be etc that would be an activist, which I am not, I find activism boring and a waste of time in this climate. I never got along with the Nanaimo political crowd because of that. All they could talk about to me is "Hey Yankee Boy go home" or "You know SD, America and its evil empire of Imperialism full of war criminals who kill" etc. I'd go to political meetings and want to talk about gardening with the greenies. lol

I do, just I haven't found the right people to be around who don't judge me by my nationality. Only the Internationals seem to be accepting of who I was in Nanaimo. Everybody else was all suspecious it was so annoying. I won't be the only American on campus anymore thank god at UBC  lol Americans actually hold leadership positions in clubs and stuff. So the anti-americanism doesn't seem to be as prevalent (outside of the goof balls at the SDS group). There's two people I keep in contact in Nanaimo, they both wished the same thing for me at UBC, that I could find more people like me and not what I experienced in Nanaimo. I'm still going to do stuff with the newspaper or radio. Its what I like to do.

Well it goes hand in hand. Everybody talks to everyone on facebook. Nobody posts on my Wall I have to post on theirs and I most likely won't get a reply back. As my roommate says "If you have to call them in order to do something and they don't ever call you, then they're not your friends." If you go by the 'calling me, texting me, leaving something on facebook, msn etc' I've got 2 friends, both of whom were my roommates. *shrugs*

Anyway I got a call from the head person of the area saying I was invited (its a private event). Would of gone, got a German Final that night. lol I said I'd come by the day after. They'll probably get me working in the office.

Have you checked out the Marine and Byrne area, Michel?  There's a HUGE Homesense, Winners, Michel's, The Shoe Company and across the street there's Canadian Tire, PriceSmart, London Drugs, Kin's, Marble Slab (yummy icecream!) and other stores...

Oh, and for fresh (and cheap) veggies and fruits, there's Langley Farm Markets on Kingsway (can't remember the cross street).  Drive east from Metrotown.

yeah it's to the point that if you're a guy and you talk about re-decorating, you must be gay, since all the tv shows feature gay guys.

Kinda like that.  It's for everyone in our building.  I notice many downtown buildings have this kind of party... a Tenant Appreciation party.  Ours would be more private because it's on the patio but others have it outside.

No...it's because it's all numbers.....no names.  I can find streets with names.....Broadway and Main (names....not area....lol)......but not with 132nd Ave and 164th Street.....(or whatever the case may be).  Names will stick with me....numbers, not so much.

Just saying, people can put places to names of familiarity, Madison Ave, Bay Street, Champs-Élysées, Red Square, Downing Street, Pennsylvania Ave., Wall Street, Abbey Road, Bourbon Street, Fleet Street, Piccadilly Circus etc.
Although the only bucking the trend I can think of street wise is 42nd Street and 5th Ave. I can't think of any other numbered famous streets.

 Well, I was born in a small town
And I live in a small town
Prob'ly die in a small town
Oh, those small communities

 All my friends are so small town
My parents live in the same small town
My job is so small town
Provides little opportunity

 Educated in a small town
Taught the fear of Jesus in a small town
Used to daydream in that small town
Another boring romantic that's me

 I've seen it all in a small town
Had myself a ball in a small town
Married an L.A. doll and brought her to this small town
Now she's small town just like me

 No, I cannot forget where it is that I come from
I cannot forget the people who love me
Yeah, I can be myself here in this small town
And people let me be just what I want to be

 Got nothing against a big town
Still hayseed enough to say
Look who's in the big town
But my bed is in a small town

 Well,  I was born in a small town
And I can breathe in a small town
Gonna die in this small town
And that's prob'ly where they'll bury me ...[/dd]

 lol It's a cultural thing, like I said in the pictures thread it started with the civil war. It used to be funny mock people who said Mizzer-ah and they'd mock us for saying Missor-ee. Then the politics get involved when you reach a certain age, and now the media talks about the two Missouri's and you become aware of each other and why you are different.
Its annoying and then the Missouri Republican party refuses to call the state Missor-ee and that when politicians come here to St. Louis and KC they say it to our faces Mizzer-ah (aka haha in your face and no we don't care about you, money will go to the boonies, but vote for us). It would be the equivalent of somebody going to the PQ convention and saying 'Canada forever, Quebec blows'.

Same goes for people who say Illinoise instead of Illin-oye. Illinoisians see this as a cut down and ignorance. One thing to know about Midwesterners, they don't like southern influences who 'muck it up'. It's a pure-laine attitude and it shows in how Midwesterners are brought up over southerners. So when you have a state that has 2 strong influences, you'll get your battles. It's a dog eat dog world. East coast west coast make fun and mock the Midwest, midwesterners mock southerners, southerners mock east coast west coast.

Well I didn't live too far from the harbour in Nanaimo and at night when the ships would roll in I'd hear them every once in a while, even though they came everyday.

Was it foggy?

I've never had a female doc.  

  If you're going to a male OBGYN for plumbing issues.....they know it as well as any.  If you're looking for someone to understand the science of hormones.....they can know it as well as any.  If you're after someone who has a first hand knowledge of what you experience as a result of the effects of hormones....they can't get it......but they are equally as capable of being understanding and/or compassionate (or not) as well as any.

When I was in Sry Memorial, I was surprised to know that a male doctor needed a prescense of a nurse during his internal examination on me.  It was funny when he announced what he was doing and that he was wearing gloves.

  Yes....that's true purelife.....but 20 years ago, there were far less female obgyn's than males.

I thought it was odd that he was announcing that he was wearing gloves.  He's supposed to wear gloves and to hear him tell me was funny in a way.  I guess I've never heard a doctor telling me that.  I have heard of incidences of doctors not wearing gloves, so perhaps it was just to reassure me...but I check!

 It is manditory.   I do use up all my vacations but take a day or two here and there and never 3 days more at once.  One day, I'm going to take 2 weeks in a row.  

  You get 4 weeks?  You lucky ducky...we only get 3.

No, it wasn't a herd, it was over a 50km stretch. There is usually 1 or 2 every morning. It's not the road conditions that bother me, it's the wildlife that come on the road when you're doing 120km/hr. Saddest thing I see is a bear that has been hit, it's us that are in their territory.

I'm not denying growth is going to happen, it's the sprawling neighbourhoods that I don't like and nobody should. Smart growth, why does every new neighbourhood have to be sprawled out? Why can't we go back to pre World War II design of our neighbourhoods where instead of it being about a house, it was about building a community.
One of the best quotes I've ever read about house building/community was in this new urbanism book. I don't have the quote off hand, but it was something like 'we build the greatest homes in the world, so exceptionally well that we never have to leave the home, we have everything. The problem is we now build these mansions in the middle of nowhere and since we never leave our home, we don't know our neighbours or community.'

Well I'm from the midwest, we frown upon people who hot dog and gloat.
Run the entire 100m's please or get off the track.

In Missouri you aren't allowed to hot dog it or show boat, if you do, you get disqualified or penalized. Best example is football. If you start high stepping or celebrating on your way to a touchdown. Your score doesn't count, and the ball is placed on the spot you started to show off. If you do it twice you will get ejected.  There's no place for it.

I think they might BE the disaster.

    I actually feel a little badly for the company.  They've been around for 100 years with a flawless record. (of course I feel worse for those affected by their product....that goes without saying)

  But I watched this silly woman on Anderson Cooper last night (Eleanor Friedland) and she was slamming them like they did it on purpose.  She made it sound like they had done this over and over again and were trying to cover something up.  That isn't the impression I get.

Weirdness abounds here today.
 
 1)  Long-lost friend found me on Facebook.  Haven't seen or heard from him for over 10 years.  Didn't even know which country he was in.  We had a really weird friendship for many years.  We laughed, hung out, talked about everything and did life together.  I had an inkling that he had a crush on me...but chose to ignore it.  He wrote me a letter once just before he left high school, telling me that he was madly in love with me, etc.  Ulp.  I chose to ignore the letter and we never discussed it.  But we continued to correspond until we lost touch 10 years ago.  He's a dear, dear friend...just a weird situation.  And I've never been interested in him, or will I ever be.
 
 2)  My azzhat neighbour (the good looking one who smells good...) just phoned me to tell me he had the day off.  (wtf?  does he think I'm about to run over and jump into bed with him, just because he's off work?  sheesh...)  As good looking and good smelling as he is, I'm not INTERESTED in him.  Yikes.

Well I for one think the root of a mess of problems, is the attitude that a STARTING job at $55 grand is a low paying job.   Everybody wants to start at the top.  Although as Lil Me said.....for some fields, I guess it would be.

  Education, training, degrees etc. are only the groundwork for a high paying jobs.  Experience and work ethics, are what should allow a person to move up the salary ladder.  I've worked with people with degrees coming out their ying yang that haven't got an ounce of common sense or the ability to think outside their realm, and have a healthy dose of some sense of entitlement.  I've also worked with high school drop outs, that are eager, quick learners with great attitudes, that are willing to work their buns off.

  ......given the choice......

Oh dear.  

  That's why I'm curious, because we just checked for highway reports and conditions, and there is no mention of it today.  Our goal isn't to get to Banff fast....there are several places along the route that we would like to see.  Yipes yipes yipes !

SO looking forward to this.

  Our victims....I mean, neighbours have just left.  They have both cats and dogs, and are not the slightest bit concerned about a hiss or a spit.  My last neighbour who looked after our cat, hasn't stopped telling everyone that she 'has never been so frightened in her life'.  I was surprised that these people even offered, after hearing her story.

  I think it will be fine too Lil Me.  He has his 'continuous feed dish', which holds 3 weeks of food.  I just need someone to check that the raccoons haven't drained it on our second night away.....as they've been out in full force the last couple weeks.  It'll be good.....right ?

Wow and to think this parent was championed by a Christian religious group.

"Troubled Britney Spears began boozing aged 13, lost her virginity at 14, then started taking drugs at 15, according to a shocking tell-all book by her mum. Wild child Britney allegedly first hit the bottle after joining Disney's squeaky-clean Mickey Mouse Club...Lynne claims 14-year-old Britney then had sex with an 18-year-old high school footballer soon after she quit the TV show. And she had her first taste of drugs at 15 when she went to Los Angeles to record her debut album Baby One More Time. As Britney later pursued her pop career, Lynne let her 16-year-old daughter sleep with teen sweetheart Justin Timberlake, despite claiming she was a virgin. A source said: "Lynne thought Britney was in love and Justin was good for her." Lynne's book reportedly tells of her horror when Britney, still just 16, was caught with cocaine and cannabis on a private jet."

  The female would sing in hopes to find the mate who would syncronize with her singing.  So, he would have to sing and she would sing and the compatibility is from how they sing together.  too sweet.... :)

It's a long running battle within the family. The most of the family says we are German. I say that kind of attitude got us shot and thrown into a mass grave. If you live in a country for over 200 years, you're whatever that country is.

Going down the middle road in Eastern Europe is the best way not to get killed. lol

They're remodelling the modernism buildings from the 50s on campus and I must say, I prefer the Modernist buildings over anything they've built on campus. Brutalist structures need to be torn down though,  I can't stand the hospital area of campus, it's void of any character and life, feels like you're walking into death.

Funny story- just heard this from a very sleep-deprived friend who has a bunch of little kids.  She had a rain cheque slip from Crappy Tire and the store manager called her to say that the item had arrived and was now in stock.  She piled her kids into the car and went to Crappy Tire...only to discover that she couldn't find the slip in her pocket.  Well, you need the slip.  There was a duplicate slip on file (the store manager used it to phone her)...but noooo...that wasn't good enough.  You needed the original slip.  Poor woman was on the verge of losing it.  Then she found the slip in her pocket...moments before she went psycho on the store employees.
 
 I'm only laughing...because I've been there.

ugh I hate being an b.a.in the 21st century sometimes, you realize that the world has gone through great changes and ideas and then we just stopped evolving around 1990. Great architecture and art movements, musical movements, and political movements. Then growing up in this period we have nothing, we aren't striving for anything of importance, we're all robots just living out our own existence and complaining about stupid things like 'new' facebook as if that's the most pressing issue of our time.

What? The 80s had a billion things going on. What happened in the 80s created the 90s though.
Look at music. Does anything inspire you? post 80s its anti feeling basically, a message of "we don't have any answers, lost and confused" best examples of this would be Radiohead and Coldplay.

Films are the same way. How come all modern day high art film's deal with the same feeling of numbness and lost feeling.

Politics. God, can we find people that are inspiring and who have any sort of vision? I don't even care if its a left or a right person, which is the problem, we're now suppose to believe that the left and right doesn't exist and we're all in a post partisan age, which of course leads to more 'we have no direction' feeling, nothing to get behind. "radical centre" aka neo-liberalism. It's like Novocaine.

Architecture. What the hell is exactly Post Modernism? What comes after this period? Nothing of course, because we have been fundamentally taught that we've reached the pinnacle.

Everything is now the 'information age' which just leads to isolation and numbness of everything, we've all become cynical. It's like a shot of Novocaine. There's nothing really to get up for in the morning.

ugh.

Yes. Light rain Tuesday only. So Saturday I'll drive there, Sunday and Monday will take pics and Tuersday I'll drive back, leaving the rain behind. If it's pretty Tuesday or if the visibility is not that bad, I might add Banff and pass through Revelstoke and Glacier on the way back.

5 days is the top to leave kitty alone.

(I've been in an actual contest like that, kid from Bravaria was like "NO YOU'RE NOT GERMAN") :(

we're really hated by all it seems. One of my roomies friend's is a east euro german. We eeg's are funny folks.

I was wrong.
 They are horns, not chimes.
 They come from Canada Place, but they used to be at BC Hydro.
 
 [p style="font-style: italic;"]Like the 9 o’clock gun, the noon-hour blast of the Heritage Horns has become an institution in downtown Vancouver. A trustworthy friend, the air horns have sounded faithfully at high noon every day for more than 10 years from the tip-top of Canada Place, on the roof of the Pan Pacific Hotel.[/p]   [p style="font-style: italic;"]If you listen very carefully, you will pick up on a very distinct, very Canadian melody... unmistakably, the first four notes of O Canada. Can’t hear it? Listen again.[/p]   [p style="font-style: italic;"]But what’s the story? Do we really know what the horns are all about, or is it just the sound effect that once opened the Electric Lunch on the radio? Did we always think that the sound bellows from the cruise ships that dock at the cruise ship terminal at Canada Place over the summer season? Or is it just our cue to go to lunch during the regular grind of the work week?[/p]   [p style="font-style: italic;"]The Heritage Horns, as they are known at Canada Place, were built as a BC Hydro Canadian Centennial project in 1967 and were designed by engineer and sound specialist, Robert Swanson. For many years, they were positioned on the roof of the old BC Hydro Building where they sounded every high noon in the downtown core for more than 20 years.[/p]   [p style="font-style: italic;"]When BC Hydro vacated the building in the 1990s, the horns fell silent. Shortly thereafter, a permanent home was found. Canada Place Corporation acquired and refurbished the horns, and placed them on the roof of the Pan Pacific Hotel. And on November 8 of 1994, the familiar sounding of the horns returned to Vancouver at noon, just in time for lunch![/p]   [p style="font-style: italic;"]Today, the 10-cast aluminum horns point out towards the harbour and sound every 12 noon. At 115 decibels, they can be heard throughout downtown, on the north shore, and some days, well beyond those parameters.[/p]   [p style="font-style: italic;"]The horns are operated and maintained by a dedicated group of engineers at Canada Place Corporation as a symbol of our Canadian pride.

  I'm not sure, Michel.  I'm going to check the store out maybe tomorrow during lunch.  On the website, the single copy is $12.99.  So it looks like you have to buy something else to combine the 2 for 20 deal.  I'm sure you can mix and match.... they usually allow that, from what I've seen.

There is a wrist brace you can buy to help keep your wrist in the correct position.  A lot of office workers and store clerks wear them.
 You can find it in the drug store- same section as the shoe insoles and tensor bandages.
 If I needed one, I'd try to make an extended medical claim....not because the things are expensive (they are not) but because it's work health and safety related.

You two are hilarious.

  I ordered a photoalbum book from a site last night, and after it loaded (which took a good 20 minutes) it finally took name, address and my credit card number then diappeared.  I was a little nervous.  I was afeared that if I did it again, thinking it didn't work the first time, that I'd end up with two.

  *Michel....that was one of those books I was telling you about.  I did 40 pages....which is a $70 book, but with the coupon, it came to $44.68 including shipping.  Good deal !

This is the first one I've ordered, although I have 4 more ready to go.  I'll wait for the next 50% off coupon.  I hope it's good too, as it's for a gift.  It's surprising how many photos it takes to make a 40 page book.

  *add:  One little flaw in there ordering process, is that when a coupon is active, it's only good for one order.  Here's the catch....each book is considered an order.  The part that hurts with this method is the shipping.  You have to pay it for each order.  I wrote to them and they said they were taking steps to improve on this issue.

    There are smaller books as well and different cover bindings.  The soft covers are extremely reasonable.  This is an example of what you could do. There are 240 page layouts to select from....and thousands of backgrounds if you don't want to use your own.  You can also do pictures on a full page (8 x 11) and add text or a story.

Jeeeeebus.  Our power went out just as I was making that last post.  I wasn't even sure if it worked or not.  It JUST came back on about 5 minutes ago.  Somebody's not having a good night for sure...sirens, sirens, sirens and more sirens.....and as all that was going on, an ambulance pulled in to our neighbours place.  Then a second.....then a third !!!  The two incidences were not related....just coincidence.

  OK.....now I can turn all the lights out that were on when the power blew.

  It counts Russ....maybe not as wild anymore....but wildlife none-the-less.  

  The open door policy isn't an option when they're bringing that stuff in the house.  How to stop it ?  Heckyl and Jeckyl brought our hunter a 'kitty bib' that is supposed to stop them.  It will throw your cat into severe depression......lol.  Apparently, if you persevere, it does work....but they will take it out on your couch just to get back at you.

  I saw him try to jump up on the truck hood after Sawdust came home from work yesterday....(his favourite thing to do).....and he didn't make it.  Worse, is he fell on his back in the attempt.  It broke my heart to see it.  I wish I had missed it.  (http://discoverseattle.net/forums/richedit/smileys/Sad/9.gif)  He just walked away.  (http://discoverseattle.net/forums/richedit/smileys/Sad/2.gif)

Not sure Michel.  We adopted him from Pet Smart....and he was advertised as a female Maine Coon.  Well.....he's not a she.  He had spent a year in the SPCA, and Pet Smart was his final chance.  They 'guessed' that he was around 6 or 7.....but I'm not sure how accurate that it.  We've had him for 7 years.  I think he may have been a little older than 6 or 7 when we got him.

I like that part too.  I also like how when they get tired from walking, they just go on their bellies and move with their fins.  It was so cute.

  I started to like penguins a lot when I saw the Happy Feet movie.  It was so sweet.

  I also find it interesting that the father penguin takes care of the baby in the cold, starves for months, while the mother goes and gets food.  I also found it very cool that the father has a reserve food in his mouth and feeds this one drop to the baby penguin and it lasts for a day when the mother doesn't return to them in time.

  I found it sad to see lil baby penguins dead and the mother sad.  

  There were so many other interesting things that I like about penguins and I could go on and on.... :)

  Mazda isn't offering what we're looking for this time around (unfortunatley)....and isn't measuring up well for mileage.  We're going to have a look at the Toyota Tacoma.

Barely even any minor stuff, Lil Me.  It really was good.....no complaints here.  Gas, oil....and a couple pairs of brakes.

Hmmm.....strange.  Hub's pretty thourough with his research, and he found the opposite.  Not a lot of bad comments on the Tacoma at all.  Where are you looking ?

Thanks Michel.....I'm sure Sawdust will be all over that, checking it out.

  A truck would be good for you, with all your trips.  Throw a nice foamy in the back, and you've got a more comfy place to sleep.  If you get one, we've got a brand new canopy sitting here that you can probably have.  Well....it's not brand new, but it was bought brand new, and only used for a couple months.

Yea.....the gas thing is definitely an issue.  It was the Tacoma that had the best mileage, best everything.  (http://discoverseattle.net/forums/richedit/smileys/Sad/11.gif)

  We talked about another economy car, and we looked hard at how much we really use a truck for 'truck stuff'.....and it's a lot.  So a truck it is.  I was a truck person for years.  My Matrix is the first time I've had a car for a LONG LONG time.

Hey Michel,

Interesting!

It's funny you say that, I have been looking around the valley for the last 10 days or so and haven't seen alot of Tacoma's, which is srprising because there is a disproportionate number of Toyotas here.

Do you have any links to this, the only ones I'm finding are "Buy my Book" links. I was looking at the 4 cyl which I know is a little underpowered at 159 hp, but I need box space more than towing capability.

The standard safety features appeal to me , electronic stability control, brake assist, as well as front, side and curtain airbags. I see between 2 and 10(on a bad day) deer strikes on the way to work, so anything that can help is welcome.

I'm going to ante up for the consumer reports reviews on the '09 and see what they have to say as well.

  There IS a truck that drives around in Nanaimo....that IS a Tonka truck...and it IS Tonka Yellow.  I've seen it twice....and it really is cute.  It lookes EXACTLY like a Tonka. He must have had the tailgate custom made....because it actually has Tonka across it in the proper raised lettering.

I agree its chilly outside.
Im going to be removing the starter on my brothers truck and taking it in somewhere to have to looked at. He apparently parked and couldnt start his truck wehn he was along 4th the other day. He reached into his lockbox and took out an axe then started to knock the starter to get his truck started (contacts are gone). I would have paid to have been there to see people watching this guy in a lifted truck banging away underneath it swearing with an axe.

A job opening in our company has just opened up again (it was once closed but now, this dept. is looking to hire again).  The Mgr called me up because he remembered that I once applied back in March.  

  Back then, I applied without hesitation.  But for some reason now, I'm feeling nervous.  I guess that I don't want to come across as someone who has betrayed my boss.  I know that they would be terribly upset if I got it.  I do know that I gotta do what I want. *sigh*

 You can tell your boss, matter-of-factly that you're applying again...
 because the Manager asked you to...
 
 Seriously, purelife...you don't owe loyalty to your current boss.  The company would be silly not to promote you...they want to retain good people and keep them for a long time!

Lil Me - not sure if you know this but Zellers also sells the Triumph brand of bras.  I was kinda surprised to see them there.  (mind you, the selection in The Bay is much greater)  I was HAPPY to find one that I liked after all this hunting....

  I normally don't consider Zellers as a place to shop for clothes but I brought a really nice black blouse (looks and feels like silk) for $13.

As I joke I always ask if they could buy me something, but an asian xl apparently over there is a small here.
Then the other joke is my mom said for me to find one of these 'trust fund girls' so we'd be set for life or whatever. Like Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory scenario. lol Or Angelina Jolie adopting you.

 LOL.  I can find small bras if I go to places where small people shop (apparently not Zellers or Costco).
 
 As for HK, I've been there exactly once...in 1988...hmmm..maybe I should have bought a case of bras there, as I'm still the same bra size as I was then...

Well, I think he has made a decision.  He says he hasn't made a decision.  But I am certain, that if I put my guess in a sealed envelope.....it would be the right one.  We have gotten follow-up calls from both GM and Toyota.  Nadda from Nissan.  

  He is looking at the inconsistencies with Lemonaids ratings with what they claim their sources for ratings say.  They don't match.  More confusion.

Yes....I agree that could be the case.  But regardless of whether a company needs your business or not, a follow-up call is always nice.....a classy thing for sure.  

  Hub could much better explain the inconsistencies than I....but they ARE odd indeed.

Where do I find this genetic mutation? hahaha lol

seriously though roomie needs to go for a grand slam and find a korean girl in the next few hours. Then he's done the Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, Korean the Asian Grand Slam. woot. lol

It's just that girls are always around and they're playing rock band or watching a movie. Well I have a routine in the weekends of watching TV and hanging out lounging in living area. And there's the fact my computer is dying and it is freezing 24/7. So I've spent 10hrs trying to look up a simple group project on Georges Etienne Cartier and its taken me all day when it should have only been 30mins.

yeah 3 weeks ago.
A friend of mine watched me fill it out, took 25mins. She didn't understand why I had to fill out all these yes or no's about judges. Then my law roomie saw the ballot and couldn't believe how politicized the system is. Yeah you vote for your supreme court justices but do you know who they are no. It's ridiculous. Or then you get the judge who's running for a county position and runs on a 'I will put everyone in prison platform', exactly how is that being fair? lol silly.

eh. I'm just old fashioned, voting never used to be secretive it was seen as an abomination. Although it led to mob killings in Quebec in the late 1770s-1830s. You didn't want to be that guy as the only one voting for the other guy in a room of 30. lol

On the contrary, voting was always VERY private.  It was considered ultimate bad manners to even ask who someone was voting for.  It was a subject people kept to themselves.
Title: Re: The "I have nothing Interesting to Say" Thread
Post by: Sportsdude on Nov 03 08 09:39
Really, hmm.
You lived in a different era I do not know. lol
Everybody knows who everyone voted for, its rather easy to figure out/if you go to a primary you have to state your party of choice. Then that party knows about you and calls you for the rest of your life.

Voting wasn't always done by secret ballot. Usually it was going to a hall, someone would call your name and you'd state who you were voting for (back 125+ years ago or more). Like a caucus.

No, I'm saying everyone tells everyone who they voted for as most people ask a nano second after you say 'I voted today'.


I haven't worn a watch since elementary school. There's always a clock somewhere and now with cell phones watches are just jewelry pieces and I'm not a bling bling fan.

Yeah that's true purelife, but the first time I remember people wearing watches was during a fossil fad, ever since I've equated to the two as cell phones took over. I hate things on my wrists anyway. Never fits right, even if I get the watch fitted, gets in the way.

  I also don't like it when friends/families start snooping around our stuff and then not put it back where it belongs.  

  Maybe it's just me, but when I go to a friend's place, I wouldn't start touching their things and snooping around unless I have permission from them by asking if it's ok to check out their collection of books (for example).  BUT, we have some friends, who would just snoop at our stuff, and doesn't put the items back.  First of all, they never asked, and secondly, they didn't put it back to the correct place.  GRRRR, pisses me off.

Oh. You are one of those are you. You and starfishie should live together and leave me and Sawdust alone.

That being said, I do move tools and parts around in the garage.. so you can FIND them, and they arent in a big pile burying each other item.

Costco, Mark's Work Wearhouse, or some of those clothing stores on Broadway across from MEC.  The small stores have some no-name jackets.
 
 Otherwise, there's a 3psc Men's Rainsuit at Costco for about $80- inner shell jacket, outer shell jacket and rain pants.

Last weekend I was drier without the coat in the rain than with it.

I'm also freezing, I need a decent coat. Everybody is telling me to go to the Mountain Co-Op.
And since this weekend I'll be sitting around a camp fire in cold nights. I think I need a coat. lol

Lucky me the low's drop to around 2 the next day after we leave. lol

Funny, I was going to go there this evening to Michael's cuz I needed something, but ended up going to Stupidstore instead.

Has anyone tried grapples?  I saw how it was made on the discovery channel (or was it the cooking channel) and had to try one.  When I saw them at Superstore, I just had to buy it.  They're expensive, a pack of 4 for $4.99.  It was so delicious.  

Definitely Costco has excellent men's coats like Lil Me mentioned.  Mountain Co-op may be too expensive for you, SD.

lol.. don't worry you're not the only one confused. My roommate makes fun of me every night when I go "damn its cold".

Best explanation I can come up with is the dominant use of a car. Back home I never wore a coat. I was only outside for seconds before getting in a car. Here I'm walking around for 30-45 minutes at a time. more exposed and we don't turn on the heat around here in the dorm.

When you wear sweaters inside, it'll make up for the extra space.  That's what I end up doing...(buy one size up because my winter clothes are much thicker and will make up the space)

I like the Losers at the New West location because it's bigger, has HomeSense and is quiet.  The one in Richmond is pretty good too.  Their HomeSense location is the LARGEST I've seen.  

SD - definitely try Losers.

IMHO, if your pants are black, the coat should be black.
 If you wear jeans, the navy coat is fine.
 I don't think it matters what colour your shirt is, since you will take your coat off indoors.

Michel - I would definitely go with the black.  I don't think navy suits you if you wear black most of the time.

  I wear a long black wool coat and I love it cuz it keeps me super warm.  I think dark colored pants go well with a black coat.

I understood that the clock has special sentimental value.

I didn't really take a close look but there is one with black and gray.  If I was a guy, I would buy it.  It looks very nice.

Thanks Michel....thought I might have lucked out in finding someone who has done it.  I don't think I would ever use this technique on a piece of furniture 'just because'.  But the piece that I have does have a French Polish.....and it could use a little work.  It's not bad....but it has a few rings on it.  It would have to be redone WITH the French Polish to maintain its authenticity.  It was hub's great grandfathers dining table.  I imagine it would cost a small fortune to have it done professionally.  I don't trust my skill in this area.

Uh, no she didnt. She said to get either the hoover carpet cleaner stuff, or to use a recipe from the internet. Ill ask her tonight what she means. lol.

Well, if it makes you feel better in your housing hunt.. we have been looking as well, all the houses we been looking at havent interested us yet, or had piqued our interest then when we did a drive by to physically look at it we went nah! None has made it to the point of calling a realtor yet.

  Thanks Russ.

  I'm not sure if anything is going to make me feel better in the housing hunt.  We looked at a ton over the last few days.  All photographed well....but didn't measure up in a drive by.  I feel a little fluttery today about the possibility of leaving here.  Maybe I'm not ready ?  I love this place. The logic is supposed to be, that the property is a lot of work, just to maintain, yet when I look at anything without acreage, it scares me.

Talking about drop in real estate prices, its a shame how so many people, in the Bay Area, have been ruined in the past few months by their dreams of owning a home.  Two years ago these people were waiting in line to buy tract houses for over $700K which for many were two hour commute drives from their work places.  Today some of these same homes are worth less than $300K, and many of them have adjustable mortgages which they cannot make payment on now because rates have gone up

I cut an 'inverted cone' shape in the top, around the stem (with a small paring knife).  Then I whittle from there until I get to the seeds.  Then I peel the rind back with my fingers, all the way around, until almost half way down.  Then I score the bottom with a 1 1/2 inch cross.   THEN, with my thumbs back to back in the cone.....I break it in half and then half again.  

  Depending on my mood, I will gently pluck all the seeds into a bowl and eat like peanuts.  OR, I will just maow down on each section.  (http://discoverseattle.net/forums/richedit/smileys/Happy/12.gif)

There's a girl I know who talks like that, she's dating this guy and they're moving in together and to her the 'next step' is kids. lol silly.


no 49er not a 'professional' student, although in today's world you need a graduate degree just to do anything and everyone takes 5 years to finish (uni's don't even want you to finish in 4 anymore). (back home it was always the 6 year plan I knew a bunch of people on that one, drinkers). Then the graduate program is 2 years if you do it full time. Then after that some places want doctorates now, well if you want to be a prof, but soon you'll need a phd for a career probably. So... yeah I'll be in school for a while only because I need to, not because I want 12 bachelor degrees. lol I'm not Byron Bluth from Arrested Development.

I'd best get busy.....I have a book to rebuild.  I doubt that I can get it done in time, as I've been working on this particular book since June.

  I got an email from the place that lost my albums this morning telling me they found them.....but it was the same two they found yesterday....but not the one I so desperately want back.  They also included their little blurb about FREE shipping until Nov 24.  I wrote back and told them it was in poor taste to include their sales pitch in a tech support letter, to someone who has no books due to their negligence.

  omg.....that's HUGE !  6 YEARS ?????

  I suppose that should make me feel better.  Thanks Lil Me.....I appreciate the encouraging thoughts.  I have been attempting to start this project again, but it just brings me to tears every time I try.  There is no 'formula' to follow, as it was from a creative place....and I figure it's probably futile to waste time on it, knowing I couldn't get it done in time for Christmas anyways. (that's why I started in June)

Their lackadaisical attitude about it pisses me off even further.

Thick ankles, plump arms and a big butt are considered beautiful in Mauritania.

Well I think she'd have a blast up here if she did, plus she'd be of legal drinking age in Canada so we could go places. Money is tight right now and she's off to Italy in the spring. Once I get a job soon it'll be more realistic. I'd still would need to rent a car, she's always wanted to see Whistler and well I'd take her to Tofino.


I don't really see the point in Vegas, some people love it, I rather get in a car from Vegas and drive to the Grand Canyon, that sounds more interesting to me than looking at a replica of the Eiffel Tower. lol

    Vegas is definitely not for everyone.  But it's SO much more than looking at a replica of the Eiffel Tower.  I LOVE Vegas....and have never experienced a dull moment there.  It's the land of decadence, excessiveness, extravagance, oppulence, extremes.....

It's a huge contrast to the peacefulness of nature that I love and my basic frugal nature......maybe that's why it's such fun for me.

Hafta pay to get to the top of Grouse Mountain (Gondola ride).
 
 Can take the city bus to the base of both Cypress and Seymour.  Not usually a problem hitching a ride during ski season, but there isn't a ton of traffic going up in the off-season.
 
 Also, the Seymour and Cypress run shuttle buses during ski season, for about $5.  I think the Cypress shuttle bus runs from the Park Royal Mall and the Seymour shuttle bus runs from A&W at Parkgate Village.

  I find that with any new prescription, I get that woozy feeling.  It's similar to looking through the thick glass at the aquarium.  I have reading glasses that are useless for anything other than reading....and computer glasses that are useless for reading.  Both of them would have an unpleasant affect if I were to walk around in them.

  SD....I wanted to get there last year too, but didn't make it either.  I think it was icy/frosty last year if I remember correctly.  We had the frozen rain going on and driving from here wouldn't have been worth the risk.  I really enjoyed it....very cute and small town.....but fulfilled what I wanted.  There were a ton of little children and to my surprise a ton of teens....and of course every other age group as well.

LOL, yes.

Rocker panels are the lower panels of a vehicle body, be it car or truck. Look at a vehicle and the lower parts of a car body just on the curve as it goes under teh vehicle.
Here's a place where you can buy weld in replacements. Seriously, think of the lip under the level of a car door, just before it goes under a car.

Hey purelife- if you're having a vision problem, your doctor can refer you to an opthamologist (eye specialist).  In which case, regular MSP picks up the tab for your office visits and any treatment because it's a "medical" problem.

  Normal. Reading glasses are set for a short focal distance of 12-18 inches so when you are moving, your eyes are trying to focus on distances outside the range of reading glasses.

  Chances are it's just a floater, which is common and natural. If you start getting flashes of light as well, call an Optometrist as soon as possible.

Lil Me has good advice on the Ophthalmologist, but the waiting period to get in to see him on a non-emerg basis could be quite long.

    That one's easy.  Stop into the duty free, and spritz on an expensive demo cologne before you embark.  (http://discoverseattle.net/forums/richedit/smileys/Happy/3.gif)

Do they still have the cologne machine in the bathroom?  Put a coin in and stand close to the machine, it sprays you with cologne.

 When I met Mr LM, he wasn't so good about doing his laundry regularly.  He wore the "old man" clothes (like light blue corduroy pants from his mom) at the end of the laundry cycle.

finished reading a article on drug addiction and recovery of addicts in the church... found this interesting  but not of interest to post any wear else


 "Shannon expressed that many of her clients, in one way or another, were dealing with shame and the need to hide, keeping them from true community. Unconditional love and acceptance encouraged them to be real where they didn’t have to pretend. The wall of shame, delusion and denial that surrounds drug addiction can only be penetrated in such an environment. A church that is ‘emotionally authentic’ gives addicts a safe place to thaw out emotions frozen by years of such denial."
 
  as a recovering addict... i just wanted to state even after 15 years clean this statement made by Shannon is very true and applies very much to areas of my own walk in life... even years later to this very day.  

it is nice to learn more on things at times... and other times its better to remain ignorant.. sighs or is it. such a conundrum is it better to know something or is it better to remain ignorant..

So the $250 lamp will cost me about $30 in total to make.

Do you do things second nature (like closing the garage door when leaving) to the point you think 5mins later or when you're driving down the street "did I close the garage door?" That's me in a nutshell except apply it to everything.

This new life with glasses to read the board is the newest one. Its in my bag 24/7 as I don't need it for everyday life (well technically I do, I can't see people walking faraway anymore, need contacts). Anyway, the glasses case sinks to the bottom of the bag and I freak every single class thinking I forgot them.

  Its not only you bud. Do it second nature then wonder for ten minutes and go back to be sure. I will wake up thinking, did I lock the back gate?

Rec'd this email today.......thought this is useful to all...........

 
ALL FAMILY MEMBERS SHOULD READ THIS ESPECIALLY CHILDREN!

  These crooks are getting very good!

  A lady has changed her habit of how she lists her names on her mobile telephone after her handbag was stolen.

Her handbag, which contained her mobile telephone, credit card, purse, etc., was stolen.


Twenty minutes later she called her husband, from a pay telephone telling him what had happened.

  Her husband said, 'I have just received your text asking about our pin number and I have replied a little while ago.'

  When they rushed down to the bank, the staff told them all the money was already withdrawn.

  The thief had actually used the stolen mobile telephone to text her husband in the contact list and got hold of the pin number.

  Within twenty minutes he had withdrawn all the money from their bank account.

  Moral of the lesson:

  Do not disclose the relationship between you and the people in your contact list.

  Avoid using names like [FONT color=#ff0000]Home, Honey, Hubby, Sweetheart, Mom, Dad[/FONT], etc.,


And very importantly, when sensitive information is being asked for through texts, CONFIRM by calling back.

  Also, when you are being text by friends or family to meet them somewhere, be sure to call back to confirm that the message came from them.
If you do not reach them, be very careful about going places to meet 'family and friends' who text you.

  PLEASE PASS THIS ON.

  I never thought about THAT!

  As of right now, do you have '[FONT color=#ff0000]home[/FONT]' named on the mobile?

    If you're bopping in and out, it can appear that way.  When you close out DS....your handle will hang in there for 20 or 30 minutes...so when you come back in....your name is still showing, but you're not necessarily online.

Yes, it's a skinny vertical dent about 2 inches high on the side of a minivan.  *Hopefully* the green paint of my car can be polished off and the dent popped back out.  If Dents Unlimited works, it will cost about $150.....cheap comapred to regular auto body shops.

Sorry to hear that LM. At least it sounds like it can be popped out and buffed out as you say. Sorry to hear that this happened.. he must feel so bad about having caused all this hassle for you. I hate the size of the stalls for vehicles now and that theres no space between vehicles.. which is why I like the new Costco, spaces between vehicles. Some places I go my Tahoe is right on the edges of lines on both sides of the stall.. no room for doors if accidently let go for a second.

Jeckyl feels pretty bad about it.  We might get him to pay for part of the repair...not sure yet.  Money doesn't mean all that much to him (at his young age), so writing a letter of apology to the owner of the van might be more effective here.
 
 After the incident happened, there was no way I felt I could walk away from it.  Especially since my kid did it.  It seemed like a "teachable moment".  So I scribbled my name and phone number and stuck it on the guy's windshield.

 Spent the morning on the phone, running in circles trying to get stuff done, and trying to make my confounded printer work.  Now I feel like I could lie down and hide under my binkit for a while.

I do....and my day isn't half as full as yours.  I think if you feel like hiding under your binkit for a few....I suspect it might make the most sense to do it.

  The reason we get overwhelmed, is because the whole list of 'things to do', is present in your head at the same time.....PLUS each step (of several) to complete each task.  That's a lot of what I call 'mind snot'.  I know....nasty.....but really, that's what it is.  The part we forget to process, is that we are not required to complete the whole list of 'things to do' all at the same time.  So....clear your mind, as if you only had one thing to do.  When you're done...and only when you're done...think about the next task.

It's only fair, to point out that I have a difficult time following my own advice.  I actually try to do ALL the things at the same time.  What I end up with is 20 half completed tasks.(http://discoverseattle.net/forums/richedit/smileys/Happy/12.gif)  I have to make a conscious effort to regroup, and take things one step at a time.

I like it soooooo much when I have to begin a second or a third pile of papers of things "to do" because otherwise important tasks could be lost if the pile ever fell and the cat plays with the papers...

    What is it with cats and papers......and furthermore....what is it that they're only interested in important papers.

If you GAVE them a piece of paper to play with, they would be quite insulted....but if you're trying to read the paper, or write on the paper....then all of a sudden it's a very worthy toy.
