Q & A - Woe Edition


Do your parents strike you growing up?  
Yes. A lot. First memory I have is of my old man hitting me so hard, he knocked me off my feet. But he wasn't satisfied with just that, so he proceeded to kick me several times. I was like 4. My mom also dislocated my jaw once. I had a nice childhood.

Did they run the AC in the summer?
This is a silly question, yet we all answered it. Yes they did. My brother and I each had an A/C in our bedrooms.

Did you remember your first kiss?
Yup. Vanessa something. I can't remember her last name or much about her, but I do remember she had a huge rack. I was 14.

What was your mothers best dish?
I loved the way my mom made liver. Probably gross to some of you. But she made it with a great marinade and this thick sauce with some nice spice to it. It was awesome over white rice. I miss my mom's cooking a lot.

First car?
I inherited the old man's 1984 chevy blazer s-10. I loved that car even though it was a p.o.s.

Best friend?
My buddy Sean. We've been friends since freshman year of high school. He is definitely the first guy I call when I get jammed up. He would bail me out of jail or help me move a body without a question or second thought. He has helped me out more times than I can count, kept me out of jail when I was ready to kill my former friend (kinda n.s. My girl cheated on me with this dude and when I found out I was waiting outside his house for him to come home. I was armed. Sean found out where I was and came with a couple people to drag me away. Not one of my finer moments.) I would take a bullet for Sean.

How many fights have you gotten into?
A lot. I know this is the answer Keith expected, but I won't lie. I was bullied a lot when I was a kid. (shocking) I was in a lot of fights in 1st through 8th grade. I only got into 2 fights in my 4 years of high school. Last time I was in a legit fight was on my 24th birthday. Some idiots were being stupid in the bar, knocked into the girls we were with once too many times and I was drunk. I punched one of them 3 or 4 times before he got a swing off, he caught me in the jaw pretty good, then we were separated by the bouncers. They got kicked out, I got a free drink. Last time I hit someone was about 3 years ago at a friend's band's show. A bunch of guys were at the bar who had a beef with my friend, the guitarist in the band we were there to see. I threw like one punch before the thing ended.

Have you ever committed a crime?
I suppose I could have been charged with assault in the above incidents, but other than that, I have done some petty stuff. I guess the worst "crime" I committed was slashing this guy's tires. He sucker punched my buddy a few weeks before and broke his nose. Then one night he came into my work and was hanging inside, so I went out and slashed his tires. It was pretty dumb but I was 17.

What was your first job?
Worked a register at McDonald's when I was 15. Worked there until I was 19. Moved up to management after the first year. Hated that place but stuck it out for some reason.

Favorite sports moment?
Bruins winning the Cup last year. I know it was kind of recent, but I have always loved hockey. Started watching it when I was 6. Actually, most of the very few good memories I have of the old man are watching hockey games together. The away games were on regular TV, but the home games were all on NESN, which was a premium channel back then. We couldn't afford cable, but we had a device to unscramble and steal the cable. We only used it for Bruins games and WWF* pay per views.

Are you afraid of anything?
Getting buried alive. I'm certainly claustrophobic. I'm afraid of dying alone. Kind of dumb, but I'm afraid that no one would come to my funeral. That might be the dumbest fear ever, but I can't help it.

Any regrets?
I regret not going to college. I regret not applying myself in high school. I was very smart, but I was lazy and unmotivated. Looking back, I know a lot of that was severe depression (woe), but I just didn't give a fuck enough to try at anything. I tested with a 140 IQ and scored 1320 on my SATs, but I also had mostly Cs and Ds because I put in exactly zero effort. Other than that, I echo the sentiments of the rest of you. Everything I have been through has made me who I am, and things are finally starting to fall into place, so it is all good.

Another good Q&A contribution. Very interesting stuff Aitch.

Beth said...

But damn about your dad kicking your ass like that at age 4. I guess if anyone ever asks you "who hurt you?" we already know the answer.

Beth said...

Interesting too in that your regret about no college and not applying yourself in high school could've easily been included as one of my regrets.

Although you tested out just ahead of me in both IQ and SAT. (But then again, I have boobs so I win.)

tem said...

0 effort is a LOV staple.

El Padrino said...

"Kind of dumb, but I'm afraid that no one would come to my funeral. That might be the dumbest fear ever, but I can't help it."

last day of work today

vacacion time

Beth said...

Look at EP, suddenly worried about others' feelings on here.

El Padrino said...

The Nets and the Orlando Magic are discussing a trade that would send Howard to the Nets for Brook Lopez, Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks and the Nets' first-round picks in 2013, 2015 and 2017...

El Padrino said...

"Look at EP, suddenly worried about others' feelings on here."

aitch is uber sensitive that's
why

Jugdish said...

I'm back...good times in Arkansas and Hawaii. I've been keeping up with LOV for the most part. I'll do the Q&A on Thursday.

Beth said...

Oh yeah, that reminds me. I know nothing about basketball but still would like the Hawks to do well. So basketball fans on here, what's your basic impression on the Hawks' trades that are being reported? Good or bad for the Hawks?

General local feedback I've heard is along the lines of "It's about time, the Hawks needed to start over!!"

Beth said...

Welcome back Jug!

Jugdish said...

aitch is uber sensitive that's why

Plus he goes to nyc now and then and Lp is worried he might get the lawn chair treatment

El Padrino said...

good stuff for atl
they unload johnsons redonk contract and they scored a young point guard to pair with josh smith

Jugdish said...

Welcome back Jug!


Thanks!

El Padrino said...

hey jug did you finally hit a home run?

El Padrino said...

did you buy any more houses in arkansas or hawaii

Aitch said...

" if this is actually true, wadr, your dad was a complete ....."

It is true and you can say whatever you want about him. He's a p.o.s. who stressed my mother into an early grave. I haven't spoken to him in almost 2 years.

Mize said...

"Kind of dumb, but I'm afraid that no one would come to my funeral. That might be the dumbest fear ever, but I can't help it."


I do not even want a funeral. Get rid of me as cheaply, and with as little fanfare as possible.

Aitch said...

Welcome back, Jug. How was the honeymoon? Was the sexy time worth the wait?

Beth said...

"I haven't spoken to him in almost 2 years."

I see now you were asking about me and my break from my dad.

Mize said...

LOV: Where we don't like our fathers.

Beth said...

With Mize saying that, there's a Star Wars Luke/Darth joke in there somewhere.

Good post, h

I talk to my dad. I don't talk to my sister

So you hate your mom then?

Blue said...

i like my dad...

Blue said...

word on the radio this morning was because the nets have bird rights for d-will....if they pull of the trade for howard, they can still exceed the cap to sign d-will.

they would probably have to play 4 on 5, but that would be a stacked team

El Padrino said...

who guards Lebron?

El Padrino said...

really any team building for a trophy needs to consider who will gaurd lebron the same way guys like Bruce Bowen and Raja Bell impacted playoff series for Suns/Spurs when they played the Lakers

El Padrino said...

they didnt always prevail but they were able to contain kobe at times

Blue said...

re: atlanta

the biggest two things they did was get cap flexibility. Joe Johnson is good, but he's not a "max" player. Marvin Williams is awful.

Devin Harris is ok, he's hasn't been nearly as good the last couple of years, and while EP calls him "young", he'll be 30 next season...not exactly a young guy.

but, he's never had a Josh Smith type to play with either

Blue said...

"who guards Lebron?"

gerald wallace

Blue said...

joe johnson

Blue said...

wallace and johnson are both big enough to bother him and athletic enough to stay with him

like you said, nobody is going to shut him down

El Padrino said...

Cat owners 'more likely to have mental health problems'

kod

Blue said...

who guards deron williams? or Dwight Howard?

El Padrino said...

joe johnson

forgot the S




wallace can probably hang for a while

El Padrino said...

"who guards deron williams? or Dwight Howard?"

Wade

Howard defends himself

Blue said...

the point being...the nets would be no different than the 2011 Heat. group of guys but no depth.

it wouldn't be until year 2 when they can start acquiring decent role players (battier types) that they'll challenge anyone for anything

El Padrino said...

forget devin harris has been around for quite some time

Blue said...

i was looking up his stats, i forgot he used to play in Dallas

Tyler said...

"My brother and I each had an A/C in our bedrooms."

Whoa, your family had TWO A/Cs? Aitch lived a life of privilege.

Jugdish said...

Welcome back, Jug. How was the honeymoon? Was the sexy time worth the wait?


Honeymoon was grate, as was sexytime.

Blue said...

they each had their own bedroom..that shows you how rich they were..in bahstan

most people in boston sleep six to a room

Blue said...

how was the hawaii?

where did you guys stay?

Tyler said...

who guards Lebron?

They are also talking about resigning Gerald Wallace. So, Gerald Wallace.

Blue said...

i think they already re-signed him....4yrs/40mm

Tyler said...

Also; "Bruins winning the Cup last year."

You sir, are a lie-ah. 2004 Sox Championship is the correct answer.

Tyler said...

"i think they already re-signed him....4yrs/40mm"

So there you go, Gerald Wallace.

Blue said...

tyler knows

El Padrino said...

forgot he used to play in Dallas

mee too

El Padrino said...

You sir, are a lie-ah. 2004 Sox Championship is the correct answer.

^^^^

El Padrino said...

The Dave Roberts steal

Tyler said...

I know that Russian dude is loaded, but that Joe Johnson trade is not gonna end well. In 2015/16 he's gonna be making almost $25 million. And then Deron Williams & Dwight Howard max contracts and then Gerald Wallace on top of that. And even with all of that, I still don't know if they're better than the Heat.

Tyler said...

I also would have accepted the three Patriots championships.

Aitch said...

"You sir, are a lie-ah. 2004 Sox Championship is the correct answer."

Nope. It was great, but I love hockey way more than baseball. For me, it was the cup.

Tyler said...

I would have also accepted the Dino Radja led 95-96 Celtics who finished 33-49 before the Bruins win.

Tyler said...

I'm just sayin' that not a lot of people like hockey.

Tyler said...

But you appear to be the exception, so there you go.

Tyler said...

Wow, 96-97 Celtics were TERRIBLE. Forgot all about that squad.

never gonna get it said...

Andy Griffith, dead

never gonna get it said...

But he was like 110, so not a real shock or surprise

never gonna get it said...

Erin Andrews was on Dan Patrick show this morning. He axed her something about can she make her voice gravelly like Demi Moore. She said "No, everyone knows I have a nasally voice. I have a big nose, I get it from my grandpa".

El Padrino said...

thought he was dead already

El Padrino said...

i want one of those Nike United States of America shirts

shopuld have bought it when i bought my ones

Tyler said...

"thought he was dead already'

That was Andy Rooney.

Spaceman Spiff said...

I will do Q&A when I come back

Spaceman Spiff said...

finally went to see prometheus last night, not what I expected

Spaceman Spiff said...

"they would probably have to play 4 on 5, but that would be a stacked team"

that #6 pick would have come in handy

El Padrino said...

#6 pick guards Lebron

never gonna get it said...

that #6 pick would have come in handy


Still would be 4 on 5 because they wouldn't have Wallace

Spaceman Spiff said...

could have signed him still no?

El Padrino said...

balloon structure of le'bron*

tem said...

"She said "No, everyone knows I have a nasally voice. I have a big nose, I get it from my grandpa".


she knows

never gonna get it said...

could have signed him still no?



Would he have opted out of Portland?

Tyler said...

Crash is still a good player and he can guard Lebron as well as anyone can in the league. Lebron can get his no matter who guards him.

I think the problem is; Deron Williams (if they sign him) is a great PG, but not an elite one (just my opinion), and Joe Johnson is Joe Johnson. So basically your best guy is gonna be Howard, which is a good thing, but it's been shown that he can get shut down.

But the Heat also have a lot of problems too. So we won't know until this all shakes down because they still have to make the Howard trade and then sign Deron Williams.

Tyler said...

And to defend the Deron Williams not being an elite PG comment, look at his numbers. He's played for some mediocre to bad teams and he's declining. He's also been injured a lot. There are many other PGs I'd take before I'd get to him.

Tyler said...

This last year he put up a lot of points, but his FG% was terrible.

El Padrino said...

agree

El Padrino said...

also, him and avery will but heads at some point

El Padrino said...

butt

Tyler said...

also, him and avery will butt heads at some point

Yes, and if Howard had problems with SVG, I can't wait to see the drama that happens with him and Avery.

kod said...

"Cat owners 'more likely to have mental health problems'"



makes science, I do have low-level OCD/anxiety, and cmkod sometimes struggles with depression (she was on Prozac for about 10 years until shortly after we started dating)

kod said...

of course, I believe that probably about 80% of people have at least some form of mental illness


be it anxiety, depression, seasonal affective disorder, bi-polar, narcissism, psychopathic tendencies, etc.

never gonna get it said...

be it anxiety (check /h), depression(check /h), seasonal affective disorder(check /h), bi-polar(check /h), narcissism(check /h), psychopathic tendencies(check /h), etc.(check /h)

El Padrino said...

the fuck is seasonal affective disorder

kod said...

depression or depression symptoms brought on by lack of natural light


so basically people who suffer real depression (not just the blues) but just usually during winter time

El Padrino said...

oh
sounds like cabin fever

kod said...

man, I posted about it too on facebook, but faaaak, this storm that hit Bemidji and CL last night was like nothing I've ever seen before


not tornadoes, but sustained 80+ mph winds. Not good when you're living in the forest; thousands of trees down, many with like 3-4 feet trunks

tree fell on our office (again) so I get the day off, so that's nice at least (plus, I'm off until Tuesday).

i give it a 4 out of 10.

Aitch said...

" You're just a pussy?"

You can do better than this.

kod said...

most kids where I grew up don't take the SAT, since Midwest colleges don't require it (just the ACT); I only took it because I had planned on going to college out West or East.


Most of my friends smoked me on the ACT, it's why I studied for 6 months before taking the LSAT (law school admission test)

Aitch said...

You on vacation EP or just tomorrow?

El Padrino said...

brutal how?

less than 1000?

El Padrino said...

"You on vacation EP or just tomorrow?"

on vacation

tem said...

SAT scores just mean you take tests well.

Keef said...

brutal how?

less than 1000?




Yes. Closest town I could take the test was 2 hours away from me, it was on a Saturday. I had a party at my house that night because mom's was gone and we ended up not going to sleep because we had to leave at 5am to drive to Flagstaff to test.

Keef said...

I did well on the ACT, though

Keef said...

I had a party at my house Friday* night

El Padrino said...

woe

kod said...

I had a high fever when I took the ACT, and scored a 25


Most of my friends were scoring in the upper 20s and lower 30s, so I thought I'd take it again and expected around a 32.


felt great on test day, and then got another 25...can't blame the flu

Jugdish said...

how was the hawaii?

where did you guys stay?

Hawaii was awesome! Spent 3 days in Waikiki and stayed at the Outrigger Reef (i think thats what it was called), and 3 days in Kauai and stayed at the Marriott in Lihue.

Both islands were cool,.but kauai was our favorite. We rented a car there and saw quite a bit of the island.

Mize said...

"You can do better than this."


Just poking at the beast.

Keef said...

woe



IDGAF that I scored low.

Jugdish said...

Dont remember my SAT score, it was around 1100. I did well enough on my ASVAB to qualify for most yobs in the AF

Jugdish said...

If i ever go back hawaii id like to spend more time on kauai and hit up a helicopter tour, and either got to maui or the big island.

Keef said...

AHIIK

OK, dumb question I guess, but a straight flush beats 4 of a kind doesn't it?

yeah happy 4th

i would have folded my 4 8s too because i thought a straight flush was better

Keef said...

OK, dumb question I guess, but a straight flush beats 4 of a kind doesn't it?



Yes

There were probably 4 suited connectors on the board and he thought the other dude had the 5th

straight flush does beat 4 of a kind.

An unidentified 46-year-old man was killed early Tuesday morning when he was struck by a train in Gilbert, and police said alcohol may have been a factor.
Gilbert Police spokesman Sgt. William Balafas said that Union Pacific Railroad officials contacted his department at about 3:45 a.m. to tell them a man had been struck by a train near the intersection of Gilbert Road and W. Park Avenue and that both his legs were nearly severed.
He said the milelong train was stopped for about four hours after the incident, blocking several crossings in the town. The train began moving again at about 7:30 a.m., he said.





That's like 2 miles from my house. Got caught in that traffic this morning.
