El Pad Q&A (kod edition)



Did your parents strike you when growing up?

Nope, I was “sauced” as a kid. Once my parents caught wise that a) I knew they wouldn't strike me b) I didn’t really mind the taste of soap, and c) soap did not agree with my digestive system, they got more creative (and by creative, I mostly mean evil).  Tabasco sauce was my punishment.  They did have to stop it at some point around 6th grade when they put way too much in, and my tongue swelled up massively.

On an unrelated note (unrelated according to my parents, at least), I cannot eat anything remotely spicy, I don’t even like pepper.


Did they run the AC in the summer?

Yes.  My dad is pretty thrifty though, so the house was usually set around 74-76 degrees in summer time.  I never minded though, we had a nice in-ground pool to keep cool in summer, and a furnished basement with tv/vcr and Nintendo that was usually in the upper 60s.

Growing up, I only had one friend who didn’t have AC.   His parents made a shit ton of money too; I never fully understood it, and hated going over to his house in the summer because of it (plus, no basement option).  I dunno, his parents were abnormally old, maybe they had some remaining baggage from growing up in the Great Depression era.


Do you remember your first kiss?

Yes, and it was awful.  I was so disappointed, I had looked forward to that moment for quite a while…thankfully she was just a really, REALLY bad kisser.


What was your mother's best dish?

My mom was a very good cook.  For some reason though, after I hit about 8th grade, she stopped cooking almost entirely.   I think it may be because my dad is even better, and she didn't want to deal with the competition, so just decided to leave it all to him.  Fair enough in my view, she was always the breadwinner of the family anyway, and he was more responsible for the domestic stuff (cooking, cleaning, taking care of us kids, etc.).   Definitely her apple pie, as it's the one thing I can honestly say that I have never had better anywhere else.

Quick aside:  there is a long line of great male cooks in my family….yet I can’t even get cereal right; go figure

First car?

It was a 1991 Chrysler Lebaron convertible I got for my 16th birthday; I had it for an entire two weeks before totaling it.

Best friend?
Non-family it’s my buddy Adam; we go back to 4th grade and still keep in touch frequently; usually getting  together once every few months when I get down to the Twin Cities.  Sounds kinda lame, but really, since graduating college, my closest friends (in no particular order) have been my dad, my wife, sdkod2 and sskod, and my boss.

How many fights have you gotten into?

really nothing of note. I do remember punching a kid named Jim in the face in 4th grade, and then feeling absolutely terrible when he started crying.   I vowed to never punch anyone in the face again, and so far, I’ve been able to make good on that promise.  Back in college, some really drunk random kid was throwing awful, sloppy, haymakers at me while I was in line at Hardees after the bars in Winona.  That was the only time I was really ever tempted, that was a surreal experience.

A female friend of mine from Madison was visiting me, and after going out to the bars with some friends, she and I stopped by Hardees to get some food before heading back to my apartment.  On the way in this obviously smashed scrawny dude with a white fro looked at me and said "what's up?".  I said "hey" and walked in, got in line, and all of a sudden he kept yelling at me some crazy shit.  I tried to diffuse him, but he was nuts, and he starts just swinging at me with these slow motion haymakers.  It would have been so easy to destroy him, but I was afraid of getting arrested for assault, or other trouble.

This was also before cell phones were all that prevalent, but catching on.  So....as he's swinging at me, I'm shuffling around him yelling at people in line, "anyone have a cell phone, call the police or I"m going to end up hurting this guy."

Finally, a manager came out and apparently knew this guy; he ended up kicking me and my friend out.  Fortunately, it ended the situation.  Unfortunately, I didn't get my Frisco Burger.

I didn't get laid that night either, I wonder if it would have been different had I fought back.

Have you committed a crime?

Haha, next.

What was your first job?

Tennis Instructor for kids and adults, and Middle School Tennis Coach…..I did that every summer for 5 years.  I remember getting paid $7.25/hr when I was first hired at 15, and at that time, and feeling rich since all my friends were making around $4.50-$5.50.  Of course, I was working a lot harder than them was as well, it was about 50 hours per week outside continually running around.   It was an unbelievable gig that I was very fortunate to land and absolutely loved; I’m also very grateful that I never have to do it again.

Favorite sports moment?

1991 Twins/Braves World Series.  Top 3 moments from there 1) Kirby’s Game 6 walkoff (right after saving the Twins with the catch up against the old Metrodome Plexiglas).  2) Jack Morris going 10 innings in game 7, and 3) Ron Gant sliding off the base and then trying to argue Hrbek threw him off (hehe, hi beth) 

Close second was EHS taking the state hockey championship in 97 against heavily favored Duluth East, and then watching the team wheeling out our player who had been left paralyzed earlier in the season from a cheap shot/cross-check to the back up against the glass, to give him the MVP award.  The entire student section was chanting his name the last 3 minutes of regulation while holding onto the 1 goal lead.

Are you afraid of anything?

Heights, bees/wasps, fear itself.

Any Regrets?

I try to live as regret free as possible, noting that we all make mistakes, and that things we see as regrets are part of what led us to where we are now, and who we are today.  That being said, I regret causing the accident mentioned above.

"1991 Twins/Braves World Series"

Well hell, that reminds me that I should've included as one of my favorite sports memories the 1998/99 NFC championship.

I could've also listed top 3 plays, 1) Chuck Smith forcing Cunningham's fumble right before halftime, 2) Gary Anderson's miss, and of course 3) Morton Andersen's game-winner in overtime.

OK, now we're (almost) even Kod.

another solid post. i am coming around on these things.

harsh night

Beth said...

And to respond to some talk from yesterday's comments, EP is mostly correct (shocking) that I'm pretty much a legal secretary, after starting as a pure receptionist. But I also help with the client services department, etc.

Beth said...

And we don't just answer the phone as "Law Firm", we say the full firm name.

hardees is midwest talk for carls jr.

kod can fill you in on the midwest talk at summit 3.

"we say the full firm name"


jew name, jew name and non jew name?

"another solid post"

Definitely, although some time I do want to hear kod's real answer about crimes.

tem said...

"But I also help with the client services department"


this is too easy of a setup....

kod can't answer that. he would be disbarred.

"jew name, jew name and non jew name?"

Generic American name, ethnic non-jew name and ethnic non-jew name.

Someone's paying attention.

Hilarious and tragic. My mom ate tons of spicy food when she was pregnant with me(allegedly), so she chalks my love for hot foods to that. Tabasco ain't a thang.

i think i am going to try to be insufferable today with weaksauce woe.

Aitch said...

Just sayin man. In my experience, as much as girls get pissed when you get into a fight, they still want to feel like you can protect them. So yea, not stepping up will not help you get laid.

Not saying you did the wrong thing by not fighting, Kod. Just saying it did not help you get ass.

tem said...

i used my last dollar on a pop this morning. now, i have to go to the atm.

it is really cute when 20 yr olds post on facebook about the government being effed up and their posts are full of spelling errors and poor grammar.

Y'all may give H a lot of grief, but there's a reason he gets more action than the rest of you combined.

tem said...

there are a few reasons:

1) isn't married
2) is in a band
3) not dumb
4) talks funny
5) isn't married

Beth said...

Ok Mr Literal, you kinda missed my point there.

there's a reason H doesn't have many repeat lovers...awful in bed...or so says exbmh's facebook

H was going to seal the deal with some chicks in chicago before Jug had to be taken home because a hooker was going to rob him.

Aitch said...

"there's a reason H doesn't have many repeat lovers"

Factually inaccurate, but that's fine. Haters gonna hate.

Aitch said...

"H was going to seal the deal with some chicks in chicago before Jug had to be taken home because a hooker was going to rob him."

That was hilarity in retrospect. I did not think so at the time.

tem said...

it was indeed hilarity

tem said...

my left dress shoe has a scuff on it.

Aitch said...

There was 6 of them. At least two were down. Jug and I were all set, but he screwed it up. (Jug bought shots, I had to hook him up before Tem or Mize.)

tem said...

damn, so does my right one.

Aitch said...

Get your shine box.

Beth said...

"my left dress shoe has a scuff on it"

You can't just tease us like that, we need details!

the paper is staples brand. the printer is a dell. it is big. el pad would be jealous.

kod said...

cheer up Republican LOV members, yesterday's health care ruling may have just been a very sneaky Roberts-led victory for limiting fed gov't authority BIG TIME going forward:


"the health care law was, ultimately, a pretext. This was a test case for the long-standing—but previously fringe—campaign to rewrite Congress' regulatory powers under the Commerce Clause.

The scholars expected to see the court gut existing Commerce Clause precedent and overturn the individual mandate in a partisan decision: Five Republican-appointed justices voting to rewrite doctrine and reject Obamacare; four Democratic-appointed justices dissenting.

Roberts was smarter than that. By ruling that the individual mandate was permissible as a tax, he joined the Democratic appointees to uphold the law—while joining the Republican wing to gut the Commerce Clause (and push back against the necessary-and-proper clause as well).

This is a substantial rollback of Congress' regulatory powers, and the chief justice knows it. It is what Roberts has been pursuing ever since he signed up with the Federalist Society. In 2005, Sen. Barack Obama spoke in opposition to Roberts' nomination, saying he did not trust his political philosophy on tough questions such as "whether the Commerce Clause empowers Congress to speak on those issues of broad national concern that may be only tangentially related to what is easily defined as interstate commerce." Today, Roberts did what Obama predicted he would do.

Roberts' genius was in pushing this health care decision through without attaching it to the coattails of an ugly, narrow partisan victory. Obama wins on policy, this time. And Roberts rewrites Congress' power to regulate, opening the door for countless future challenges. In the long term, supporters of curtailing the federal government should be glad to have made that trade."


Yikes, sneaky sneaky, Roberts

if 55% want the law repealed (voters) then who is to say they wont excercise their fall vote in the general election in favor of Romney? so that he repeals it

it's almost as if winning this health care reform is hurting obama

"if 55% want the law repealed (voters) then who is to say they wont excercise their fall vote in the general election in favor of Romney? so that he repeals it"


Romney can't repeal it, Congress has to....not easy to get those 60 votes in the senate ("no shit" says democrats everywhere since 2008).

Plus, there are a ton of R seats up in the House this election, they'd have to win the house, absolutely crush the senate, and then also win the presidency

realistically there is almost 0% chance that it will be repealed.

But of course, Romney will have to do his best to keep that truth covered; good way to score votes with independents who don't like the bill and think getting rid of Obama will end "Obamacare"

Mize said...

"I think the bill is sloppy, and needs redone, from the bits I understand."


there's great stuff in there that had to happen/change, but a lot of it is just a mess


sloppy is a perfect description IMO; Piss poor negotiation strategy by Obama and Co. from Day 1: to not even bring a single-payer option to the table should be a fucking embarrassment to them, considering the majorities they had in the House and Senate. Shit, Obama was not just an attorney, but a Constitutional Law professor at a top law school.

The only place I've seen worse negotiation strategies is on Pawn Stars.

They press hard on single-payer, we'd have a robust public option, which would be about 100X better than these "insurance exchanges" which nobody knows how to set up, or how they are supposed to work
