Chink in our armor

This post is dedicated to the spiffmeister.

I was watching Celebrity Apprentice last night, I find myself getting into that more than I ever got into the regular Apprentice. I can't fucking stand Aubrey O'Day, though. She really is a cunt. And she's hideous to look at. She was almost uglier than that Gotti zombie chick. Almost.

Is anyone else a fan of Adam Carolla? I think that guy is hilarious. You could almost call it Adam chills. Almost. If there was a random person that I would say I'd vote for if they ran for POTUSA, I'd pick Carolla. Whenever I listen to him on a podcast or something, he seems like he's a way smrter* dude that one would think. Plus, he just doesn't give a fuck. We need more politicians who DGAF.

Ash Wednesday is this week I guess. At least, according to tem it is. I didn't verify. I'm not giving anything up for lent this year. It's not like whenever I've done it before I get this huge sense of accomplishment when it's over. It's basically 6 weeks of feeling like I should have given something else up, or nothing at all. So this year, I'm gonna eat tons of meat, drink tons of pop*, and eat tons of sweets. Hello 200 lbs!

So a buddy of mine threw out this idea about a month ago that he wanted to start a movie club. Basically, once a month we'd have a movie to watch and some couples would get together and just sit around and drink and talk about it. Sounds gay, but hey, I'm married. I do lots of gay stuff now. So this weekend was the first one and the movie was Breakfast Club. It wasn't as dumb as I maybe thought it was going to be, everyone got drunk and talked about 80s movies. But then some of them started talking politics so I went into the kitchen because politics makes me want to vomit. The movie for next month is LA Confidential. I've nerve seen it. I hope it's not awful.

Definitely lent on Wednesday . They told me so in church yesterday.

tem said...

And everything they say in church is 100% true.

tem said...

I should have tagged that NS to see what kind of slippers would ensue.

Not for nothing autocorrect on my phone turns NS into BS.

tem said...

8am conference call from the house not so bad. Next time I'm gonna take a shower during it. Speed up the morning a bit.

After a violent collision at home plate ended Buster Posey's season in May last season, San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy has instructed his All-Star catcher to no longer block home plate when a player is trying to score.

Manny Ramirez told ESPN's Pedro Gomez on Monday that he has agreed to a deal with the Oakland Athletics.

Sources tell Gomez the deal is worth about $500,000. Ramirez is obligated to serve a 50-game suspension without pay before beginning play for the A's due to violating baseball's drug policy for the second time. With no rainouts, the first game Ramirez would be eligible to play is June 2 at Kansas City.

Keef said...

I thought the first suspension was 50 games & the second suspension = 100 games

Blue said...

yeah, what the hell

Keef said...

Kobe to Lakers: Either trade Gasol or don't


Good plan

Keef said...

hilarity

Keef said...

got caught looking again

Blue said...

that whole manny thing got glossed over too easily

i thought that's why he retired in the first place because he was going to hav to sit for 100 games

Keef said...

In 2011 Ramirez was informed of another violation of the drug policy, and he retired from baseball on April 8, 2011, rather than continue with the process entailed by a positive test, which would have included a 100-game suspension.[4][5] However, he asked for reinstatement from the MLB and was reinstated on December 10 with the stipulation that he serve a 50-game suspension if signed.


Blessed be

tem said...

blessed be

Keef said...

I'll bet $-160 that if he plays again he'll fail another drug test

Blue said...

was his argument that he served a 162 game suspension last year?

Keef said...

i dunno

filed my state taxes this weekend.

i have to pay state, but my federal refund covers most of it.

This is stupid to me, if the feds are giving me money back, the state should as well.

Keef said...

rob peter to pay mary

Beth said...

"This is stupid to me, if the feds are giving me money back, the state should as well."

You probably screwed it up and actually owe Fed too.

Keef said...

maybe you should have shared your low limit credit card with cmblue

tem said...

"i have to pay state, but my federal refund covers most of it."

happens all the time to lots of people.

states are not as nice with taxes as the feds.

tem said...

just file your fed now and your state in april.

you should have your fed money in time to pay the state.

Blue said...

yeah, we got our fed money already, that's why I filed the state.

I don't have to pay the state until April 17th, so i'm holding onto the cash for now.

Blue said...

"states are not as nice with taxes as the feds"

they need to offer more cool credits.

Beth said...

"states are not as nice with taxes as the feds"

TP disagrees I'm sure. FL has no state income tax I've always heard.

Blue said...

seems like states are always needing money

Blue said...

FL and Texas, and Nevada, and WAshington

but all have higher property tax/sales tax to make up the difference.

That is all said...

"This is stupid to me, if the feds are giving me money back, the state should as well."


you couldn't possibly believe this to be workable, right?

Blue said...

the reason i have to pay tax in Colorado is because it's a flat tax state

that's why it wasn't ever an issue before i lived here, if i got a refund federal, i got a refund state. If I paid federal, i paid state.

tem said...

all states get money from their residents somehow.

if they aren't fucking you with income taxes, they are fucking you with property taxes or sales taxes or condom taxes or grape jelly taxes or taxes on sex swings or a tax on puppies.

tem said...

in WaVa it is very common to owe state regardless of your federal situation.

That is all said...

"FL and Texas, and Nevada, and WAshington"


South Dakota too; like flat taxes, mostly end up screwing the poor

Blue said...

"if they aren't fucking you with income taxes, they are fucking you with property taxes or sales taxes or condom taxes or grape jelly taxes or taxes on sex swings or a tax on puppies."

except Nevada and Alaska...nevada has all the gambling taxes...and alaska actually pays a "dividend" from the oil companies to their citizens.

Keef said...

Isn't Oregon a non-tax state too?

That is all said...

-property taxes here are completely out of control because the State keeps passing unfunded mandates, and leaving it up to local government to find a way to pay for these mandates.

-other than property taxes, local gov'ts don't have many other options

don't disagree. in temhio local governments also charge income tax.

some school districts charge income tax too.

well alaska fucks you by making you live in alaska. it is cold there.

nevada fucks you by, well...maybe nevada is OK.

"don't disagree. in temhio local governments also charge income tax."

should read:

"Haye blamed Chisora for the clash that followed his fellow Londoner's defeat in Munich and the beaten challenger has acknowledged that the violence at the post-bout news conference marred the biggest night of his career.

"Whilst my behavior was inexcusable, there were many things that went on behind the scenes that ultimately caused my frustrations to boil over,'' Chisora said. "Despite all of this, the bottom line is I have let my family, my team and - worst of all - the sport I love down."

Meiz has been putting some long, non-drunk thought into moving up north. The hardware store is still hiring, and I'm sure the grocery store would be an option too. The Nicolet Rentals guy called me back last Thursday regarding an apartment.

This job isn't worth the pressure and added stress. Not at all.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- There appears to be no end in sight for Greg Oden and his troublesome knees.

The Portland Trail Blazers said Monday that a procedure to clear debris out of Oden's left knee resulted in another microfracture surgery. Oden had the surgery in Vail, Colo. Although it was originally expected to be an arthroscopic procedure to clean out the 7-footer's knee, the surgeon determined there was additional damage.
The former No.1 pick in the 2007 NBA draft has now had two microfracture surgeries on his left knee, and one on his right. He has also undergone surgery for a fractured left kneecap.

Nothing against Nashville. That's just a super spendy flight for me. I realize other places would be more expensive for other people. You guys pick the place. If I can make it work, I definitely will

"On a beautiful weekend, the 33rd annual International Eelpout Festival, a rowdy celebration of perpetual youth attracted 10,000 to Leech Lake’s Walker Bay."

....the Maple Grove man and his buddies were playing “hammerschlagen,” a beer drinking game of inebriated “skilled carpentry” in which contestants pound large nails into a stump. Extra points are given for hammer handling tricks. The losers had to eat bait."


I live in a crazy place

Meiz said...

We have a Hammerschlagen stump at the Old German Beer Hall in Milwaukee. The point is to drive the nail in on one swing of the hammer.

In fact, why the fuck haven't we been playing hammerschlagen out on the lake?
