The way she moved reminded me of a brown stallion horse with skates on, yanno? Smooth like a hot comb on nappy-ass hair.

Just figured I'd post for the halibut.

I can't really say how incredible and important going to see Outkast live is to me.  I wish I could make you guys understand, but I don't think I can.  One my favorite things about this show is that it's at the Marcus Amphitheater at Summerfest.  For it's size the Amp is a rather intimate venue.  I'm so fucking giddy for this.  I apologize if I seem like I'm going overboard with all this, but this is my favorite musical act of all time.

Bron.  Bron dropped 61 on the Bobcats on Monday.  I wish he had gone perfect from outside the arc.  I believe he was 8 for 8, and wound up 8 for 10.  I'm a LeBron James stan.  That dude is amazing.  Twitter's been pretty hilarious and sad with all the Bron haters and Kobe stans talking about Kobe's 81 point game like it mattered.  Did that team even make the playoffs?  Ahh, that's right, 7 seed & knocked out in the 1st round.  Again, I'm a Bron stan.

I think H was on an episode of Chopped I watched tonight.  Related, I'm sick of Chopped being on all the time.  I'm also sick of college basketball being on all the damn time.

I've been digging on this Building Wild show on NatGeo.

Gotta try to get a refund on a Brewers ticket I boat last night.  Having our annual spring holiday tailgate party on April 27(Togo Independence Day. We've hashtagged it #TogoParty on twitter*), and moments after I bought my ticket, a twitter/BrewCrewBall friend offered me his second.  Worst case, I sell it for a 25 cent loss.  These are my favorite tailgates and are a new tradition we started in 2012 with the Easter tailgate, and then last year we did Cinco de Mayo.  Good times.

Here's the song the title of the post is from.


Authentico Pizza Talk:
I have a coupon for a large 3-topping pizza from the Hut. I'll be cashing that in. 4 meals for $8 and change.

I'm running out of steam.

Jug is looking for opinions on Sonos speakers.  The ball is in your court, Blue.

The saga of Rob Ford is insane and intrigues me. 

I'm listening to Southernplayalisticadillacmusic while half-typing this.  Great album.  My Outkast album rankings:

Aquemini
Stankonia
ATLiens
Southernplayalisticadillacmusic
Speakerboxxx
The Love Below
Idlewild

They're all outstanding, in my opinion.  Aquemini is somewhere in my top 4 albums of all time with Abbey Road, Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and Dark Side Of The Moon.


I have nothing else to say at this point.






*Cripes. There's also a #ToGoParty tag. Welp.

I'm not a pink Floyd fan

tem said...

I can name 1 pink Floyd song.

not sure if I have ever heard it or not. probably have.

The Meiz said...

"stan is stupid fan right?"

Sort of. Supports the person/group at all costs.

Blue said...

I investigated the Sonos stuff when we finished our basement.

decided against it as it was quite spendy, and I think somebody will figure out a way to work the Bluetooth feature into multiple speakers.

fwiw, I have the little bose Bluetooth speaker, and it's awesome. I don't watch movies and stuff on it, but it's better than wiring speakers outside.

Blue said...

stan is the guy from the Eminem song

Jugdish said...

we have a bose cinemate system for our living room and we like it a lot. perfect for what we need.

we have a tv that came with a speaker in it.

apparently telling someone their boobs look nice today is "inappropriate" for the workplace

apparently telling someone their boobs look nice today is "inappropriate" for the workplace



you sound like Lp now

Jugdish said...

apparently telling someone their boobs look nice today is "inappropriate" for the workplace


there are boobs like that everywhere

/mize

Blue said...

I have to co-lead a sexual harassment thing once a year (because I'm the only trained guy to lead these and they need a man to be a co-lead)

We had an employee actually tell a co-worker that their boobs looked nice today (as opposed to the days they don't look nice).

Of course he was fired, but claimed wrongful termination because he was just "joining the conversation" that the women were talking about

so for Beth, even if you're a woman and you tell another woman that her boobs look nice today, that's inappropriate.

Jugdish said...

aja...he had to be pretty dumb to think that was ok

Jugdish said...

one ball

tem said...

after you get fired the gloves come off and you sue for wrongful termination. it doesn't matter if your argument makes sense. all you want is an out of court settlement for some cheddar

Jugdish said...

all you want is an out of court settlement for some cheddar


that's what i'm talking about!

That's fine

H said...

Just an update, she passed at 10:55 (EST) last night. She went peacefully surrounded by her family. Thank you guys for the well wishes.

tem said...

i technically have a step grandmother, but that's when my grandfather remarried when I was like 13 or something. one grandmother died before I was born and the other one when I was like 2.

I don't understand the grandmother dynamic.

tem said...

fyi- the rise in cancer and autism line up with the rise in microwave use.

H said...

She was like a second mom to me. Both parents worked, so we were always at her house. As I got older, we'd sit for hours at her kitchen table and just talk. I'm really gonna miss that.

Alrighty.

The Meiz said...

Co-worker that's leaving next week just fucking undermined a new process I implemented just this morning because she thinks it's confusing. Can't wait 'til she's gone, at this point. I'm sick of all the whining and complaining about nothing.

tem said...

maybe your process is confusing

tem said...

exhibit A, it confused her.

The Meiz said...

It's a new process, and she does not handle change very well. Never has.

The Meiz said...

And it makes for less work for us and Cash App.

The Meiz said...

Bosslady: Hey, corporate says we have to change the way we to this.

Mize: Here's my idea.

Bosslady: I like that. Great idea.

4 hours later

Coworker: This is confusing, I'm just gonna screw it up. I'm doing it my own way.

sucks that your solution was not immediately embraced by all. I can't really relate because all my ideas at work are implemented perfectly, but I think having someone not understand would be just terrible.

Blue said...

I'm finding tem's comment to have some sarcasm included in it

I'm not sure though

The Meiz said...

Lady wouldn't even listen when I tried to explain why my way is more efficient. Just interrupted and said she's doing it her own way. That's fine, she gone after the 12th.

Blue said...

she's quitting on a Wednesday?

The Meiz said...

Yeah. Not sure why Wednesday.

Keef said...

Sitting at the pub with people from my class. One chick is from Gainesville and went to FU. I made a comment about how much Tebow sucks and she got fucking pissed. Then she said something about UF and I said it's referred to as FU. She stood up and wanted to punch me. She had to call her husband to calm her down. Needless to say, the FU jokes haven't stopped

ToddPacker said...

UF chick sounds like a bitch

Awwwesome!

Troll the shit out of that broad.

The Meiz said...

There is a serious lack of good restaurants in Cedarburg & Grafton. And the the best one, IMO doesn't take reservations. The fuck.

Blue said...

sizzler

The Meiz said...

I don't think Sizzler is a thing anymore. I used to love going there when we lived in Milwaukee.

tem said...

do restaurants there actually get packed to the point you need a reservation?

Blue said...

maybe he wants the best table

The Meiz said...

"do restaurants there actually get packed to the point you need a reservation?"

Yeah, seriously.

Water Street Brewery, Milwaukee Ale House, Flipside, Anvil. They're always packed.

Keef said...

We have very few restaurants that take reservations

The Meiz said...

I'm really only choosing to go to the Anvil because I can walk there. Otherwise, it would be John's Pizzaria.

Keef said...

Some have call ahead seating, but the majority are first come first served

The Meiz said...

How does call ahead seating work? How is that not a reservation?

H said...

"How does call ahead seating work? How is that not a reservation?"

It's basically just putting your name on the list at the door without actually being there. So while they aren't reserving you a table, you don't have to wait as long, if at all, when you get there.

The Meiz said...

Okay, so it's like the Mitch Hedberg "where are the Dufresnes" joke.

Keef said...

Okay, so it's like the Mitch Hedberg "where are the Dufresnes" joke.




Yeah basically that

The Meiz said...

You should watch some Mitch Hedberg on YouTube. He was on his way to legend status, but coke, heroine, and whatnot.

Keef said...

Hedberg is fucking hilarious

he was a series of one liners but they were all great

Seat in front of me from DC to Phx is a baby, maybe 2-3 mos. woe

2-3 months is ok, they sleep.

7 months is terrible.

still hilarity that to get to phx from Columbus you traveled east first.

fucking airlines.

The Meiz said...

We're sending you back to Phoenix. But we're going to make you fly cross-country.

tem said...

and I am sure that because I said the kid would be quiet it will cry the whole time.

sorry kevin

H said...

You jinxing son of a bitch.

Brooklon Baby said...

Airline fault or work being cheap?

Keef said...

No option for non stop on the way home. Had options for layovers, but DC layover was by far the shortest

Keef said...

Baby cried the entire time while plane was loading and taxiing to runway. As soon as pilot fired the engines for takeoff the baby stopped. Little who're here and there but it has been ok. About 45 minutes left

Keef said...

I'm on the aisle. Dude in the middle seat is a Russian kid who looks just like that Boston bomber kid. He has been picking his nose and flicking them in the floor the entire flight

Keef said...

On

I gotta remember I'm not good at eating ribeyes. Should have gotten the tenderloin or flat iron

No fat no flavor

"You don't eat the fat"

Correct, but in my experience in WI, most people eat the fat. NS

I get weird looks for cutting the fat off. My family(Dad's side) shames me for doing it.
