Fire Roenicke now!

He should go back to hockey....s.

Wedding planning update: We were going to doour engagement pictures last weekend, but it rained all day Sunday (which we really needed). So last weekend we started registering for gifts. That was my idea, so I scored some points there. We are not done, but my part is done. She still has to go on line and tweek some stuff. So now we are doing engagement pictures this weekend. Two good things with that...1. she suggested I bring a flask. B. we will get done just before the Bears game starts Sunday night, and III. we'll be watching the game down in a bar on the beach in Galveston.

Restaurant question: When you go to restaurants on a regular basis, do you have one particular meal that is your go to meal 99% of the time, or do you try different things all the time. I have my go to meals, and when I go to restaurants I haven't been to before, I typically order things that are like my go to meals at other places. I'm a picky eater.

House update: This may not be an update, but the original story. I want to sell my house, and the sooner the better. fmjug would like to have something ready to move into by the time we get married, and not this house. The first issue I need to take care of is foundation repair thanks to this drought we've been having. I have a crack on one of the interior walls of my house. When I first saw that I thought it was going to cost several thousand dollars to repair. Fortunately the crack was found early, and I'll get it done next month for $1600.

I got the Sunday ticket for free this year. I cancelled my Direct TV service at the end of August. When I cancelled they offered me the Sunday Ticket for half off. I turned that down and cancelled. A few weeks later I signed back up and they gave it to me for free, along with HBO and Showtime for free for three months...suite!

That's all I have...Go!

Keeper!

Beth said...

At the risk of restarting a debate that I, and probably no one else on LOV, wants restarted, mize you may want to read this article where the original Troy Davis prosecutor addresses the alleged recantations, etc.

It makes some very good points and seems to clarify a lot of things, but I'll be curious to see the rebuttal by Davis' attorneys that I'm sure is coming soon.

re: go to meal

It depends for me...if its someplace I go all the time, after a few go to meals i like to switch it up.

Although I hate ordering something and after starting to eat it thinking "damn, I should have gotten my go to meal"

El Padrino said...

starting to eat it thinking "damn, I should have gotten my go to meal"

terrible feeling

Blue said...

if it's someplace ive never been to or rarely go to, i don't try to stray to much from my norm

El Padrino said...

the tex/det game was hdh last night

Blue said...

miggy is one fat slow dude

El Padrino said...

yup

rice and beans will do it

Keef said...

Definitely the Tour of Italy!

El Padrino said...

i dont even know what that means

El Padrino said...

i saw come commercial about carraba's?

they have some casuale menu?

was hilarity

Pass the Lysol said...

so I think I came up with a good idea, with a little help from John Tesh and Mexico


temporary marriage.


I propose all marriages in the US are automatically dissolved after 2 (maybe 3) years unless

1) before the marriage, the parties file significant paperwork and pay additional license fees to waive the 2/3 year requirement (for those religious and/or traditional...some may say naive folks); or

2) Before the 2/3 year period expires, file paperwork for permanent extension and pay an additional filing fee.

You have kids in that 2 year period, strong presumption of equal joint custody (legal and physical..DV situations an obvious exception)

Boom; saves court resources, will reduce DV rates, and cuts down on nasty divorces affecting kids

Keef said...

So kod & cmkod's marriage isn't found so well. Got it.

S

Pass the Lysol said...

marriage is too easy, and divorce is too long, difficult, and expensive

Pass the Lysol said...

"So kod & cmkod's marriage isn't found so well. Got it.

S"



funny, I was very careful when explaining that idea to cmkod, as I figured her brain would go there

Blue said...

change that to 5 years and your set

Keef said...

Jesus, found? Nice autocorrect

Blue said...

my joke is always that marriage is like a lease on a car.

at the end of the lease you can either choose to buy the car or give it back to the dealer (and probably pay some penalty for excessive wear and tear)

El Padrino said...

great idea kod

s

/god

El Padrino said...

damn benefits going up again

shit

El Padrino said...

thanks alot obama

Pass the Lysol said...

change that to 5 years and your set



-yeah, coulnd't figure out a great time frame for expiration....I'll defer to you on 5, sounds good to me

El Padrino said...

I need this

Keef said...

To look at the pictures?

El Padrino said...

no maybe i'll read it

this e-reader craze has actually made me want to start reading books, but physical books not on an e reader

El Padrino said...

weird

El Padrino said...

jug are you going to profit by selling the house?

City of Champions™ said...

"this e-reader craze has actually made me want to start reading books, but physical books not on an e reader"

I find myself in the same place. After reading a few books on my kindle app, I find myself buying more paperbacks

Jugdish said...

whats your go to meal a burger?
wings?



wings

Jugdish said...

jug are you going to profit by selling the house?



I'm not sure...hope so. Depends on what i have to do to fix a few things.

Jugdish said...

Boom; saves court resources, will reduce DV rates, and cuts down on nasty divorces affecting kids



most lawyers would not be in favor of this...the divorce lawyers anyways.

I like the profile pic Keith. Just noticed it

Mize said...

Ron Roenicke - Pouring gas on the dumpster fire that is the Milwaukee Brewers postseason.

Blue said...

meiz should change his name to "kotsay is my homeboy"

City of Champions™ said...

"I like that H is complaining on FB about people that woe"

I don't care about woe. It happens. Just that one phrase irks me. Especially since it is usually coming from some spoiled bitch with no sense of reality. "Oh I couldn't find a nice pair of shoes. FML." or "Starbacks discontinued my favorite coffee flavor. FML."

Keef said...

I like the profile pic Keith. Just noticed it



Garcias*

Keef said...

I can't put in my 2 weeks notice yet. FML

Mize said...

Keith, double or nothing Runnin Ron starts Notsay in RF tonight on the Mayweather bet.

Keef said...

H, would you consider FML a form of woe?

Keef said...

Keith, double or nothing Runnin Ron starts Notsay in RF tonight on the Mayweather bet.


What mayweather bet?

Blue said...

It's not a form of woe, it's a way of life in the northeast

Keef said...

Mize is acting like the Breer's are down 3-0 in the series

Keef said...

Sparty gonna beat UM this weekend

City of Champions™ said...

"H, would you consider FML a form of woe?"

I suppose so. I guess I am opposed to that specific type of woe.

El Padrino said...

fuck sparty

Pass the Lysol said...

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^



convincing me even further that I'm on the right track with this (ns)

Pass the Lysol said...

"Mize is acting like the Breer's are down 3-0 in the series"



-yes, I'm holding my tongue and typing hands out of fear of jinxing the Crew

Blue said...

really kod?

do you think it's possible things could get worst for them?

Pass the Lysol said...

"I suppose so. I guess I am opposed to that specific type of woe."


I think FML is like epic; usually not meant literally, it's become a sort of slang.

Pass the Lysol said...

do you think it's possible things could get worst for them?



um, it's only 2-1 so yes, clearly it could be worse and get worse

Pass the Lysol said...

The last two games have been awful, but that means nothing


Google games 3, 4, 5 of the 91 WS....I think Atlanta outscored us like 40-5 in those 3 games


the way I see it, Millie just needs to win 1 of 2 in St. Louis and hold serve twice at home....not *that* bad of a spot to be in

Pass the Lysol said...

and now you tricked me into jinxing them



well done, sir (ns)

Keef said...

City of Champions™ said...

"I think Atlanta outscored us like 40-5 in those 3 games"

Kod played MLB???

You know what saying I hate? I hate when people say "I feel like dog shit". I mean, you don't really feel like dog shit. That's retarded

City of Champions™ said...

"kod, it's Gully H"

Kod, it's douchebag Keith

Mize said...

"What mayweather bet?"


You bet me on the Mayweather fight last month.

Keef said...

"You bet me on the Mayweather fight last month."


Oh, I thought that was paid off. That's fine, double or nothing.

Keef said...

Breer's probably already released tonight's lineup

Keef said...

mize, let's see if we can get this bet paid off this year

Keef said...

Kod, it's douchebag Keith



Oh, the pain

Blue said...

"the way I see it, Millie just needs to win 1 of 2 in St. Louis and hold serve twice at home....not *that* bad of a spot to be in"

or they could just lose the next 2 and be done

Pass the Lysol said...

"or they could just lose the next 2 and be done"


which would then put them in a worse place than they are today, wouldn't you agree?

Keef said...

ohh

Mize said...

"Breer's probably already released tonight's lineup"


No

Blue said...

"which would then put them in a worse place than they are today, wouldn't you agree?"

nope....they're already done.

they were dun after game 2, the rest is just a formality

I seriously doubt that Brandon Phillips would ever root for the Cardinals

Mize said...

"Mize is acting like the Breer's are down 3-0 in the series"


No I'm not. I haven't given up on them. I still think they can and will win the series.

I just think the manager should be fired.

City of Champions™ said...

Keith's got jokes today

Keef said...

I just think the manager should be fired.




mind bottling

City of Champions™ said...

Meiz, you really believe the manager had no influence whatsoever in the Brewers making it this far?

Blue said...

the only thing that got them this far was the ineptitude of the rockies

Pass the Lysol said...

"I just think the manager should be fired."



Well it's official, the Brewers have made it out of the wilderness


You know your spoiled when you start calling for the firing of your rookie manager at this point

Keef said...

mize is almost worst* than rev now

Pass the Lysol said...

"In crafting his approach, Pawlenty sought to make the most of tensions between Minnesota’s gambling-rich tribes, like the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe and the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux, and larger, poorer bands such as White Earth, Red Lake and Leech Lake.

But members from other tribes fired back, and Pawlenty eventually gave up on his pursuits."


Reason #10,000 I'm glad T-Paw dropped out of the presidential race; what a disgrace.

Jugdish said...

No I'm not. I haven't given up on them. I still think they can and will win the series.



only if prince and braun stop drinking beer in the clubhouse between innings

Jugdish said...

mize is almost worst* than rev now



mize is not used to this kind of success. Breers just became competitve a couple of years ago and he is a LONG suffering Lions fan.

Jugdish said...

isn't FML in the same category as LOL? I also dislike the use of OMG. I dislike it more when people actually say OMG in regular conversation

Keef said...

and he is a LONG suffering Lions fan.




I always forget about that

Mize said...

"Meiz, you really believe the manager had no influence whatsoever in the Brewers making it this far?"


With the team the Brewers have, the manager has very little influence.

Mize said...

Pardon. Very little positive influence.

Keef said...

I dislike it more when people actually say OMG in regular conversation




csil says it all the time. Drives me crazy

Keef said...

With the team the Brewers have, the manager has very little influence.



I know you don't really believe that

Jugdish said...

braun is practically a player/coach...much like konerko

Jugdish said...

every time i see braun's name on TV I think "Good for you Lloyd!" (seinfeld reference)

Mize said...

"I know you don't really believe that"

Very little positive influence.

Mize said...

"braun is practically a player/coach...much like konerko"


That was actually a running joke last year under Macha because Macha was such a bag of dicks. Roenicke at least means well. He's just not good at his job.

Mize said...

Things Ron did/does that I like:


Solid double switches

Squeezes

Letting Corey Hart lead off

Not caving in to K-Rod bitching to the media about not closing

That might be the dumbest statement I have ever heard (read).

Jugdish said...

i like how berkman won comeback player of the year after he got fat and out of shape in houston.

City of Champions™ said...

By that logic, the Yankees should win every year because they have so much talent. The manager has a huge influience on a team making it this far. To say THAT team would have made it to the NLCS either way is just ratarded*

Blue said...

lack of competition this year


somebody had to win

Keef said...

I like where blue's at today

Keef said...

By that logic, the Yankees should win every year because they have so much talent.


Girardi has very little positive influence on that team

Grady Little

Jugdish said...

gonna sign up for this soon. looks like fun

City of Champions™ said...

"Grady Little"

So you are saying that a manager can only have negative influence?

City of Champions™ said...

And you basically contradicted your own argument. You were saying a talented team didn't need their manager to get where they are now, and then you say that Francona, vs Little is why they won in '04 as opposed to '03

Mize said...

All you need is a manager that isn't a fuck up that does stupid shit like starting a veteran presence/pinch hitter guy in center field in the league championship series.

Tyler said...

Jug, if you figure out how to sell your house at a profit, please let me know how you did it, because I need to sell my crappy condo without somehow taking a massive hit.

Jug, if you figure out how to sell your house at a profit, please let me know how you did it, because I need to sell my crappy condo without somehow taking a massive hit.



this is my first time selling a house. its a bad time to sell, but houses on my street seem to have been moving in the last year or so, so I'm encouraged by that. I'll keep you updated.

Tyler said...

Good luck. Selling doesn't sound like it's a whole lot of fun right now.

I need the amount of forecloses in my building to be at zero before I can even list mine. Usually there are 2-5 at any given time. It sucks.

Tyler said...

I would be over the moon if I could just sell it for what I bought it for. But I don't think that is going to happen. I'm pretty sure I'll have to take a loss on it. Especially since I've gotta fix some things.

tem said...

1 bad thing about registering so early is that when it comes time for most people to actually buy you gifts (0-45 days before the wedding) most of the stuff you registered for isn't in stock because it is last year's product.

fmtem's and my registry is full of shit that isn't in stock anymore.

tem said...

definitely have go to meals. chicken parm is a big one for me.

steak too.

calzone too.

go to side dish is mac n cheese

tem said...

good luck selling your house. if you bought it in the last 6 years you are probably gonna lose money on it.

El Padrino said...

"At the risk of restarting a debate that "

i would lose about $20K on my condo if i tried to sell it now.

"fmtem's and my registry is full of shit that isn't in stock anymore."


Gotta get the 2012 version bed skirt

i paid $180K....would be lucky to sell it for $160K.

Keef said...

i would lose about $20K on my condo if i tried to sell it now.




Do you have a pool?

tem said...

fmtem said i had enough bed skirts and wouldn't let me put one on the registry.

tem said...

no, if i had a pool i would obviously lose more.

Keef said...

I'm hoping that when we sell our house in 10 years that we don't have to take a hit

tem said...

tyler, my best bet for my condo is to rent it out.

i could easily rent it for my mortgage plus condo fees plus real estate taxes plus a little more maintenance.

i'm not sure if your rental market is as strong as the one here, but it is possibly an option

Keef said...

no, if i had a pool i would obviously lose more.



Well you're losing something, so there's gotta be standing water around you somewhere

Blue said...

this just happened outside my office

tem said...

we have management companies around here that will rent it out for you and do all the maintenance and stuff.


they charge a fee of some kind, but i could still rent it for enough to break even on it for a couple years.

tem said...

"Well you're losing something, so there's gotta be standing water around you somewhere"

yeah, we have a "lake"

"this just happened outside my office"
