I heard that there is an old English tradition that states that on the 29th of February a woman can propose to a man. If he refuses then he has to pay up! That could be anything from an item of clothing or something of her choosing.
Ladies! Would you take advantage of this tradition if your man was taking too long to pop the question?
What do you think?
I went with my friend to purchase some computer stuff by my work, and I noticed the sign as we walked in. Zip Drives? What? I remember the 100mb zip drive a bazillion years ago, but wondered why they still had it listed on the sign.
As my friend is looking around for stuff, I ask the sales guy, "I'm looking for some zip disks. Where are you stashing them?" The guy looks at me with that "dude?! What are you talking about?" look.
I point to the sign and say, "Well...you sell zip Zip Drives, you sell the disk for them too, right?" Then we both start laughing. He says, "I guess we should take that sign down, huh?"
Did you ever have a zip drive?
Me: Dunno. You have something in mind?
Me: Okay, how about Anthony's?
Her: Nah, I had fish yesterday.
Me: Uh...The little deli.
Her: I'm not in the mood for a sandwich.
Her: We just had that Friday.
Her: That would take too long.
Me: Chineese? What do you want?
Her: I told you! Anything except Chineese.
Me: Okay where do they sell this "Anything," so we can get moving. Otherwise, I'm going to Esther's.
Her: Geez! Touchy today aren't you?
The only time that I did watch was for extra credit for my speech class in college, but these types of shows don't interest me. How about you?
By the time I got there the $5.00 parking guy was gone but finding a spot was still pretty hard. Luckily, I found a spot after someone left to go get lunch. Heather did well and the team had fun even though they didn't do that well overall. During the downtime, Heather took over my camera and the girls laughed at all the pictures that I had taken since everyone has funny expressions when they're playing.
Another side note was that the indoor bathrooms were for the women, and the men had to go outside and use the portable toilets out in the parking lot. Gee thanks.
The tongue is the fastest healing part of a human body.
I guess our body thinks we'll be damaging our tongue on a regular basis?
Later he stated, " you know they come here on short-term permits but they stay longer than they are supposed to and take our jobs. Now the Americans can get more fares."
What's your view?
There was only one other person brave enough to weather the rain. No wait at all. :) Esther asked, "what kind of soda do you want?" As I turn, she smiles tells me that she is merely testing me. She knows that I haven't had any sodas in about 10 days.
As we walked down I said, "don't be surprised if he starts wearing a neck brace and that broken light turns into a couple of thousand dollars, wants his car painted and ..." She laughed at me...but not for long. She got faxed a quote for $1,500. He wants the fender replaced, tail light, oh, and the car painted since there are now some scratches :) btw, that's not the accident picture in case you're wondering.
Just wait a couple more days and his neck will start to get sore. Then I got smacked in the arm then get asked, "Oh...can I borrow $2.00?"
Did you do anything exciting or just kick back?
It had just rained the previous couple of days so our field crew was up early getting the fields ready to play. They did a great job.
I was there the whole day and the kids are the ones that are the most excited to see me because they know that I will be taking their action shots (if there is some) and posting it on the website.
Heather was supposed to help me photograph the T-Ballers but she went to Arizona to watch her sister during the long weekend. I called her during the 7:00 p.m. game and asked for a little update. I told her that she'd get photo credit if she helped me. :)
Some people asked about "the hat," but I couldn't find it. Regardless, I didn't get sunburned this year. Two and half more months before all-stars...
Today my friend and I went to China Camp for lunch downtown. While we were waiting for our order, we were reading the little place mats with all the Chinese astrology signs. This just happens to be Chinese year of the rat and I found out that I was born in the year of the horse but most importantly that I'm 95% compatible with a woman born in the year of the dog. I take all this stuff just for fun...how about you? Or do you believe that when you are born determines everything?
I had a surprise for the girls in the softball league. I changed all the colors to pink, and made a little softball valentine with an arrow going into the softball. Now what to come up with for April Fool's day. The season starts this Saturday and I'm exited about seeing everything, it's been a long time since I've seen some people....
It's not what a guy thinks concerning what will make his girl happy, it's what she tells him about what will make her happy that counts! If he ignores this, then she'll be gone...because he just didn't listen.
By telling, I mean: her reaction, body language, mood, communication, etc. Remember that just because you stop fighting about things doesn't mean that it's not an issue anymore. It's that she's given up for whatever reason.
Then when it's too late, it doesn't help to blame it on everything or anyone else and think that you had no part in it, because then even your friends (the honest ones will just tell you you screwed up, and learn for the next relationship) will know you left things out of your story.
Since she has several IM clients they were fighting for control of the camera and neither could use it.
Do you use video when you can't be with your loved ones?
These are actually two shadow photos pasted on top of each other so that you could see my arms since I had to hold the camera with the other. :)
If I were still doing my 365 then would this count as a self-portrait?
We went to volleyball practice later and she and I arrived early and played a little 2 on 5 against her team mates for fun. We did okay :) I'd love to have her as my partner for 2 on 2 sand volleyball since now she can probably do better than the majority of our weekly sand volleyball crew.
I had someone try this at work yesterday and they said they could do this. Can you? I think Mythbusters tried to disprove this one with a GIANT-sized paper, but I didn't see the episode. Try it and let me know what you find.
In the particular scene, I was supposed to say, "Let's give it up for Buddy Holly and his new hit single." I jumped into camera view with my cheesy little microphone and kept substituting signal instead of single. Luckily, I was doing this with all my friends, and at first we couldn't stop laughing. But after several takes, we all got frustrated and by the time I did get it right, my picnic red checkered jacket was on crooked. Nice! We ran out of film and exhausted our budget so it was a wrap.
We played it for the class and somehow the speed was wrong, and that combined with the crooked jacket, messed up chipmunk sound; people thought we did it on purpose. It was a hit, a Charlie Chaplin type wannabe movie. We got an "A."
Have you ever thought you messed something up bad, but things ended up better than you thought?
These women go wild driving up and down frantically looking for another guy after their first choice is gone. At times, they then then just give up and ask for anyone ages, "30-40." I'd hate to be the last guy standing after over one hundred other guys got picked, but at least they have a date, right?
If you were a guy would you do this? And, if you're a woman; would you drive down the mile and pick a man?
How many of you got automated calls to remind you about Super Tuesday? I got some on my home and cell. I guess they assume nobody watches the news, gets on the internet, listens to the radio, or checks their mail.
Does it annoy you when you get home and turn on the tv and the anchor on any major news channel says, "With 5% of the vote in...we are declaring Marey Carey the winner!"
I know why it's valued that high (71+ million USD) but it flucuates rather sharply but what's a few million dollars? Do you know why it's valued that high?
Mosquitos are attracted to people who just ate bananas
Hmmm...Now there's a gag gift idea - a banana spray! I wonder if that would work?
The final score Giants 17 Patriots 14. The game was rather boring except for the 4th quarter when the game came down to do or die. Sorry, I'm not into defensive type games. Shoot-outs please!
I would have liked to have seen the Patriots win and go undefeated, but having a huge upset is pretty good, too. In the end it turned out to be a good game with Eli coming through at the end. One thing with all the hype concerning their undefeated season is that the Patriots probably will be in one of those Southwest Airline commerials - "Wanna get away?"
Did you like the game, half-time show or commercials the most, IF you watched?
When you go to a restaurant, do you look at the menu but order the samething anyway?
