Holy Smokes, Nivek! It seems like you've been having a lot of "adventures" lately!
Glad you're both OK.
Yeah I feel pretty good actually, all things considered, we were in a 2015 Ford Focus SE...It was a pretty decent little 4 cylinder with a 5 speed transmission...
emphasis on the WAS part
Ford will be more than happy to make your friend a new one.
Damn, stay safe, Nivek! The word "cursed" comes to mind.
so proud of my twins!
Kate with her 8 points and 15 assist and Debbie who cheers her to victory.
Picked up a quick gig this morning to take a look at an electrical disconnect and couple of network jacks. Easy enough.
But I didn't know it was outside until after I accepted it. It's 5 degrees out there now and this place is right near the Hudson River. Brrrr.
Carhartts I got. If only I had some fresh beaver fat to smear on any exposed skin .....
I'm deep inside an automated ripsaw in a small cubby hole changing sensors... good thing I'm a slender guy or else I would not fit in here lol...
Good time to by that extra lottery ticket.
Can't say I've had any luck with this tactic but a run of any sort is a good time to give it the chance.
Madison police arrest student who allegedly had loaded gun in backpack at Madison West High School
different high school my twins are safe..
Its been a really busy week thus far, but today seems to have calmed quite a bit allowing me to work in my office all morning and with a more normal pace...
My mother in law is turning 90 and we're headed downtown this weekend to have a little party. They like to keep things moving and out of the blue I was handed a writing assignment. Silly but it really does serve a purpose and keep things light. I hope anyway - that's a rough crowd.
This morning I finally looked at it and banged this out in maybe 5 minutes. Bear in mind that with my MIL I can't think up a joke too filthy, say anything too outrageous, she loves it.
Write the Story: A Strange Request at a Piano Bar
Include the following in your story:
carnival sprained oxidation awkward mask
apple juvenile controversy twirl sassafras
I knew I wasn’t going to make it home in time so I stopped into a local Piano Bar to make a quick pit stop. The bartender eyeballed me as soon as I walked in so I ordered a hard apple cider and annoyingly had to show him my license – I’m no juvenile. I ducked into the back to do what I had to.
The smell hit me first. A weird mixture of cotton candy, whiskey and sassafras. What a funk. Smelled like somebody just f****d a clown in there. I looked around the dingy bathroom and saw just the usual brown oxidation, the stains, graffiti and what not – and then I noticed them. Big bright red shoes sticking out from under the stall door. God, maybe somebody actually did nail a clown in there.....
I knew it was awkward but first I took care of my own urgent needs. He’d still be dead two minutes from then. Standing there I got a good look a Pimples the Clown as he lay in repose in the nearby stall. His leg was twisted, probably badly sprained at least. His face was a red and white and blue mask. I recognized him from the posters; the carnival had been in town and it was a source of some controversy.
Before I could turn to leave the room began to fill. Clowns. Big ones, little ones, Christ there must have been thirty of them in there before I could squeeze out. Apparently Pimples had big joss, he must’ve been important to them. As I sit here at the bar twirling his bright red rubber nose I think about their strange request. They want me to carry on the tradition, said that Pimples had chosen me in this way and soon I would see the light and want to hit the road with them.
I just had to pee real bad and picked the wrong place to do it. Should’ve just done it on the street – they won’t even give you a ticket for that anymore. I tossed the nose. Clowns are f****g creepy anyway.
Kate goes down court and Debbie cheers her on! the victory was tempered by Kate's teammate Mia hurting her leg.
Kate visited her in the hospital.
during the visit Kate said "get well soon Girlfriend " followed by a liplock kiss.
we asked "anything we need to know?"
Kate said "nothing yet."
That's quite good and clever, read it a couple three times, Pimples the Clown lol...
Its been a really busy work week this week that's behind me now, I worked some odd and long hours randomly all week and next week I'm on a different schedule than normal again...Monday going in at 0600 and leaving work at about 2030, then Tuesday through Thursday 0900 to 2030 and Friday 0600 to 1400...
My partner and I are planning a trip around the West Coast for about 3 weeks in the spring. We have come up with two possible itineraries. We're not sure if the first might be too hectic so we came up with Itinerary 2 but haven't worked out how many nights we'd spend in each place. Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks.
