Non TCS Stuff


1) Is hockey really having like a week long training camp and then going to start the season? wft? Maybe you should practice a little longer than 1 week.

Cmtem and I stopped into a store that was moving locations and had a big sale on Sunday and good lord were we bombarded.

Don't forget about H said...

Cheat like Blue did.

El Padrino said...

i will cheat, say i didnt, then apologize later and cry

Don't forget about H said...

The Lance approach. I like it! Gotta throw a lawsuit in there though.

Don't forget about H said...

Sue Keef for aaying you cheated and then later he can sue you back.

El Padrino said...

i'm suing the shit out of keef

El Padrino said...

El Padrino said...

Don't forget about H said...

Thanks for clarifying the windshield issue, Keith. Still a lot of replacements for one family.

Is CMK really just going Elin Nordgren (sp?) on your ride when she gets pissed?

Don't forget about H said...

You can tell us. We're in the trust tree.

Meiz said...

El Padrino said...

Meiz said...

"i got 12.5/20"

Malarkey

tem said...

he sent the test with answers.

that is an accurate scoring.

Meiz said...

What will Kevin do to suck up to Tem this year?

tem said...

maybe he is tired of winning.

BLUE said...

15 is my actual number now that I go back and score it

BLUE said...

ns

BLUE said...

can i count teej as a chick who has commented

BLUE said...

if so that's 16

BLUE said...

blue got his 2013 comp plan.

11% raise in total comp, and a redistribution of part of his bonus back into his base salary

he's a happy dude right now

tem said...

the restribution doesn't count as part of the 11% right?

tem said...

is your bonus fixed? i don't follow the redistribution part.

are they just deferring what they owe you for your 2012 bonus and tacking it on to salary and not paying it now?

El Padrino said...

congrats blue

El Padrino said...

fucking richer get richer in this country i like it

screw the weak

tem said...

"can i count teej as a chick who has commented"

no but i would accept an argument that freak is 0.5.

tem said...

weak and rich are not opposites.

El Padrino said...

sounds like bonus is cut but salary up

that's better IMO

El Padrino said...

weak and rich are not opposites.

good point

El Padrino said...

"that is an accurate scoring."

thank you tem

fucking haters

tem said...

"that's better IMO"

in the long run more than likely yes.

tem said...

HUNGRY

tem said...

early HUNGRY. meeting someone on the other side of town.

Meiz said...

A raise would be nice. How novel.

BLUE said...

"the restribution doesn't count as part of the 11% right?"

right. So my total comp consisted of 80% salary and 20% bonus that had a cap and could go less...etc

now my total comp is 11% higher but a larger portion of my comp is in base pay. Basically i can't get fucked out of money if the company tanks.

BLUE said...

to do simple math (theoretical numbers)

say base pay was 80k and bonus was 20k = total comp of 100k. But could be as low as 80 and no higher than 100.

after the increase and redistribution now base is 99.9 and bonus is 11.1. So total guaranteed goes up almost 25%, and my cap is up 11%

make sense?

BLUE said...

bonus used to be basically guaranteed money as well. New CFO didn't see it that way and blue and CFO clashed on this in 2012.

BLUE said...

of course, now i'll get fired

El Padrino said...

makes sense to me

El Padrino said...

According to the Boston Globe, Mark Wahlberg is set to produce a pilot about the burger restaurant starting this week.

?

Meiz said...

Nice use of context

Keef said...

23.5 pts for me

Keef said...

Lions spend about 20 hours a day resting.

Keef said...

Lions & tem spend about 20 hours a day resting.


*fized

Meiz said...

Do I get the half point for knowing hospital?

Keef said...

Didn't exfemtem comment here once?

Keef said...

FTR, I didn't get 23.5. If exfemtem commented once here, then I got 17.5. If not, I got 16.5

Meiz said...

Are we still planning on going to nashville this year?

Meiz said...

I didn't count any spousal commenting. I took it as women that actually posted with their own accounts

Keef said...

I'm gonna say right now that I'm out of the Summit this year. You guys were talking about june/july/aug. Baby is due end of june, definitely not gonna be able to make that work.

BLUE said...

i could make nashville work this year

Meiz said...

"You guys were talking about june/july/aug. Baby is due end of june, definitely not gonna be able to make that work."


I don't think I'll be able to do it in the summer months either. Low man on the totem pole for days off, and July/August and maybe September are mondo busy for us.

El Padrino said...

Do I get the half point for knowing hospital?

yes

Keef said...

fucking cmk was up sick all night. I got up and got bgas ready and took her to the babysitter because cmk is staying home. I get to work an hour late, and as soon as I get here I have to bolt to the batroom* to yak & poop

Meiz said...

Too much tuna & shredded cheese.

/LP

Jorts couldn't save us! said...

*frozen cheese

Keef said...

haven't had tuna in a minute

Keef said...

I thought it was something that cmk & bgas ate at In & Out on Saturday night while I was out, because bgas was up early Sunday morning throwing up, and then cmk throwing up last night. But I'm guessing now that's not it.

Meiz said...

It sounds like the flu, but not the strain that's going around the country. The big flu virus is more like a severe cold.

El Padrino said...

check thyroid

/lp

Meiz said...

I was going to make a thyroid/neck meat comment

El Padrino said...

"But I'm guessing now that's not it."

could be it and they gave it to you airborne

Meiz said...

You don't get food poisoning via the air. Unpossible.

BLUE said...

could be that it's a tuesday

Meiz said...

Remember when the Celtics won a championship? That was weird.

El Padrino said...

off the grid

Meiz said...

Hot Pocket time

tem said...

"Didn't exfemtem comment here once?"

yes she did. good memory. i forgot about that.

Jugdish said...

Nats lift limit on Strasburg



too late

BLUE said...

"yes she did. good memory. i forgot about that."

if you count tem pretending to be exfemtem

BLUE said...

i tried to remember if some other woman* made comments, but couldn't remember

Jugdish said...

and drnuk tem

Jugdish said...

cmlp, but that was on facebook

Jugdish said...

Meiz said...

exfemtem was drunk

Meiz said...

Goddamn, I forgot how expensive medicines are. Generic Omeprazole & Generic Claritin ran me 30 bucks and the Omeprazole was even $6 off.

Tyler said...

For #4, I answered Magersville, Temhio, which is the capital, and got it wrong.

Meiz said...

There's your problem. Tem lives in Temhio, but works elsewhere.

tem said...

yes it really was exfemtem.

tem said...

spiff will use internet skillz and get all answers correct.

Keef said...

Was in a training in a small office at work. Started to get the sweats and sat there for like 20 minutes, and finally said I'll be right back, ran out a side door in the office, and puked for 15 minutes. luckily all the landscapers were right there trimming trees so they could watch

BLUE said...

yeah, the answers are pretty easy with the interweb skillz.

i found a link that showed you all the answers

Keef said...

Now I'm home and sitting on the pot

tem said...

should have gotten that flu shot

Jugdish said...

Meiz said...

Not having cable is weird. I might have to look into Netflix

tem said...

amazon prime

Meiz said...

Prime doesn't seem to have much I'd really watch besides Chappelle. I'd probably have to get an internets TV too. Not sure that's in the budget.

Meiz said...

Although Prime is cheap as balls at $6 & change per month

tem said...

and free for a month or two or something like that.

tem said...

"I'd probably have to get an internets TV too."

that might be true. i think it is.

Meiz said...

Bam. Done with my work an hour before quitting time.

Meiz said...

"that might be true. i think it is."

Only if I want to watch shows & movies on my tv instead of my pc, which I would obviously want to do.

Meiz said...

I need a new avi tonight.

Meiz said...

Darkest Timeline Braunny is getting weird.
