  1. I hate sleepovers. You get to that point where you have to weigh out your kid going to house that maybe you don't want her going to vs. you having someone in your house at night and you don't sleep.

    Now when we have had kids over, we try and do it up well for them. We order a lot of takeout, get a ton of snack foods and we let the kids PPV whatever they want (obviously within reason),  but I just do not sleep well when I hear people running up and down the stairs all hours of the night. 

    The times we have done it, I get up and cook a big breakfast for the girls the next morning. I let my wife be the front-line of contact as we have two teenage daughters and those sleep overs don't need to have a creepy middle-aged guy interjecting himself in the mix. 

    What is interesting is when my kids come home from sleepovers, they always comment on how filthy or unorganized the other houses are. My 15 year old had one a couple years ago at a friend's place and she just was shocked that the family ate dinner at like 9:00 pm and everyone competed in how loud they could belch or fart.  We knew those parents from school only. The mom was one of those that had a different hair color each time I saw her and was really into the skate scene, but overall our impression was they were good people--they just turned out to be slobs.

    Really enjoyed the new Annabelle. The Warrens evil room is unleashed. Really cool flick.

    I didn't enjoy it, but I need to give it another watch  To be fair, my mind/attention wasn't devoted to it as my 15 year old daughter was on her first date (homecoming dance) with a boy who she told me has been a little too "handsy" with her this past week and she had to shut him down a couple times. 

    She ended up dumping him 3/4th the way through the dance and coming home in tears.  The fallout this morning is she is getting flamed on social media by his friends for dumping him. :(

    "I need to know if you are capable of protecting my people, of stopping these bombs falling on us or not. I need to know, because if you're not, I need to make a deal with Russia and the regime now and invite their planes to protect this region," Mazloum said.

    Wait until Turkish forces get attacked by Russian forces and then we are asked to step in and help. 

    Of course, which side will we step in and help is the question at this point.....:oldunsure:

    Midsommar. Put me firmly in the WTF category. Easily the most stupidest thing I've done in quite a while spending two and a half hours of my life on this. 1/10

    Yeah, we watched this last night. It was weird and I am not sure what I really saw. My wife liked it, but I feel like I need to go to a site to explain WTH this was about. 

    I think tonight will be the new Annabelle or the Girl Next Door....


  5. Going to have to finally turn on the furnace--calling for a 60+ temperature decree change in a 24 hour period coming up here and our first snow of the season. 

    Changed out the furnace filters and got the snow tires on today. We won't get anything to speak of as far as accumulating snow, but all the out of state people that have moved to Colorado will lose their minds and be wrecking into everything once a few flakes fall.

    How did HIAC end? What was so bad?

    I didn't see it but what I understand is you had a no disqualification match where two guys were beating the heck out of each other with weapons, but for some reason, Seth had a weapon and the ref called for the bell for some reason because of said weapon being used. Who knows?

    You were in our NWN group, weren't you?  We had some good times.

    :yes:,

    I can just imagine how much fun we could have now with real internet options. I just remember people having connection issues from time to time and we would randomly lose players in the middle of campaigns. 

    My desktop is dated and I have admittedly been gaming on consoles. My 15 year old daughter really wants a desktop gaming system for her room--so what the heck, why not build two?

  8. I told my wife about The Girl Next Door and now she wants to see it. It sounds like a decision she may regret.

    Watched the Fanatic. Now hear me out, when you see a movie that is directed/produced by Fred Durst (of Limp Bizkit) and staring John Travolta, most people run away as fast as they can. Travolta plays an autistic, super fan of an action movie actor, who he begins to stalk once the guy refuses to sign an autograph. I think Travolta did an amazing job in this movie, but I made the mistake of thinking of Simple Jack from Tropic Thunder towards the end of the movie and it sort of shattered my enjoyment a little. It has its stupid moments where you can see Durst threw something in that had no place in the movie, but it was a decent Redbox type movie.

    NWN is a PC game that takes care of the DMing.  Everyone has their characters and runs modules that are either user created or dev developed.  We had a group back in the day.  I remember Zippy was in it, Courtjester I think?

    It is so odd that I am reading this thread again because we are in the process of doing a deep purge of stuff in our house. We have--well, let me correct that, my wife and kids have too much stuff. I was unpacking a tub last week and I came across my NWN games. I also found all my D&D stuff--Gosh, I was an uber-nerd . I have the original boxed game with the Keep on the Borderlands module and those crappy light brown dice, all the original books (I mean all of them), most of the 2nd series of books, Dragon magazines and a ton of figures. I obviously am not planning on getting rid of these, but it was good to look through this stuff. 


  10. If he was selected to be part of the final panel, he went through voir dire and was sworn in. He knew what his responsibilities were and just frankly ignored it. It wasn't like he overslept and then drove to the courthouse a little late--he waited three weeks!! 

    The punishment was harsh, yes, but actions have consequences. The only reason the media is even covering this is because they are trying to turn it into some racial angle.

  11. We didn't get them in Colorado last time around, but some clever couple went down the New Mexico and  bought 300 of them and sold them in town here. 

    I think they are pretty good, but I usually eat two of them in one sitting and immediately regret that decision every time.  

     


  12. Locked a 25 year 3.5% refi/cash out. Last year sucked for us--we took a big step back financially as the hail storm wiped out all our cars and our house.  We went from zero car payments to two car payments and co-signed on our daughter's car, plus a fair chunk of CC debt. This cash out is going to pay off our CC debt and is only going to up our payment $100 while saving us a boatload monthly. We were 6 years into a 30 year at 3.75%--so this isn't a huge difference, but I want to retire here in 3 years and the CC debt wasn't going to be gone by then if we stayed the course--especially paying for one daughter in college and another one going in two years.

  13. So I am lucky that my office is a stop and (with drift) I can get two-three more.  Lately I have gotten into the habit of wandering out of work when I see big raids in the museum/park next to me. I am always the middle-aged guy in a suit and tie playing with all the college kids. So I am in a raid there earlier this week and we had a full party of 20 going against the  Giratina . It was a cakewalk and so the catch comes around and I get a shiny. So I yell out excitedly, "Wow, a shiny!!"  At this point, 19 people looked at me like they were going to kill me. An hour later, I left work and I saw another close by raid. Ironically, most of that first group were in this one too. As soon as I get there, several guys were like, "So you going to get another shiny?" in the most sarcastic voices ever. I thought I was going to have to throw down with some young Pogo whippersnappers there for a second. 

    But that story aside, my question is, for this event, are the regionals available in the wild? I understand the European ones won't be here in Colorado, but say a Heracross? I know I have a chance to hatch one, but I see Sevipers and Solrocks everywhere in the wild and I just wonder about the Corsola and the Heracross. I don't have either of these.

    the guesses make this even more fecal....bruno mars would be on this?  diana ross?  when i like robin thicke the most out of any group, that group needs to be fitted for cement shoes.

    And herein why I hated this show. I get you are trying to drum up some intrigue, but the chances of an A-list celebrity being on this show are zero. I watched last year to humor my wife--it won't happen again. I set the DVR, she can watch this tripe on her own time.
