Never Forget

I know we joke, and make fun a lot, but in all seriousness, 12 years ago today is a day I will never forget.  I'll remember for the rest of my life hearing some weird news report on my alarm/clock radio right after the first plane hit the tower.  I'll remember thinking it was like a war of the worlds joke.  I'll remember rolling out of my loft (because that's how I rolled) and turning on the TV and laying down on the couch about 10 minutes before the first tower fell.  I'll remember the patriotism and the outpouring of American pride over the following days and weeks.  And I don't live in NY, so I can only imagine what feelings and emotions others go through every year on this day.

Ok back to fun.  Syria, huh.  Chickened out there didn't we Barack..pussy.

Jay-Z's holy grail song is crap.  The JT intro is awesome, and a great 2 minute intro, and then when Jay-Z comes on the song is ruined.  That's usually when I flip away from it.  Local station here has gone as far as remixing it so that the song ends when JT's part ends, but you hear Jay going "UH" "UH" all through the intro.

"what's a holy grail song?"  /tem

Manning bowl 2013.  Peyton is going to get acquainted with where he plans on playing his last game of the season.

Frank Caliendo is gold.  If you haven't seen him do Adam Schefter, it's pretty good.

And by "do" I mean impersonate, not actually have man love, because nobody needs to see that.

Meetings all day with potential banking partners.  Best day of the year (s).

Pirates are 8 games up with 18 to play to at least get a Wild Card.  Would take a Messian type collapse to miss out.  Granted it's only a 1 game playoff with the Reds, but it's something.

Who knew that Cleveland is only 2 games behind in the loss column from a WC spot?

"everybody knew that"  /mize

Enjoy the day friends.  Return to your homes, hold your families close, and wait. Tomorrow you claim what is rightfully yours.

They've mentioned the Indians a lot here because of the Terry Francona connection.

Re: 9/11

I was in the cafeteria of my work getting breakfast when word started to spread about a plane hitting the WTC. My initial thought was it must have been a small Cessna or something. No way a Boeing could make such a huge mistake, right?

As I got back to my desk and turned on the radio, they were reporting the second plane had hit. We didn't have any TVs anywhere in the building, so groups were starting to form around any desks that has a radio. We all listened in stunned silence as Howard Stern of all people covered the events as they unfolded.

I'll never forget the scene. 100 people on my floor and you could hear a pin drop.

I thought the same thing. I was on my way to work when I heard about the first one. I had a class that morning and by the time I got there the second one had hit. We were released from work shortly after. I called my Dad, called the guard base to see if there was any recall, and went to church.

Never forget.

Thanks blue.

BLUE said...

I was in my last year in collitch.

one professor decided he needed to have class that afternoon. So I went, and we were there for like 2 minutes and he said "this is stupid, everyone go home"

Going to have to double down and buy more.

Dude left me a VM at 2:00 yesterday. Then another one at 5:30. Then another one at 6am today. I called him at 8:30 and dude was trying to act like I've been ignoring his messages for a month.

tem said...

That dude would be put on my permanent ignore list

Aitch said...

Some people think they are the center of the universe and you should drop everything when they call.

Keef said...

I was pretty assy with him. He's not even involved in the claim, his wife is. The adjuster who wrote the estimate for their car wrote the check in his name instead of his wife's name. Dude is calling me to write another check. I told him to call the other guy because I'm not gonna be able to help

Keef said...

Dude says "I left the message at 2. Don't you leave at 5? What were you doing that you couldn't call"
I said "you may find this hard to believe, but your wife's claim isn't the only claim that I work".
That pissed him off.

tem said...

Why doesn't he just sign the check and give it to his wife?

tem said...

I'm so glad that I don't work in anything that resembles having to be nice to customers.

Keef said...

He said she needs the check in her name for her records. Whatever that means.
My guess is they're going through a divorce

I'm cool to 99% of them. But this guy leaves me childish voicemails where he starts talking really slow and in different types of voices, using a robotic tone at one point. As soon as I heard his VM I was like fuck this guy

tem said...

They must be. Otherwise I don't see how it would matter.

tem said...

Guy sounds like a winner

tem said...

I think I am going to be pro johnny football in order to ensure his failure.

Keef said...

Yep. He's at least in his 40s, too. Maybe older

tem said...

In his 40s? Just a young pup. /tp

Keef said...

Can't believe I have a son who's 40. I feel old
