Moo.

HELLO FROM REHAB!!!!   Not sure if anything's been shared but Sunday dinner at my parents' a couple weeks ago was in fact an elaborate ruse to stage an intervention.  Actually it wasn't very

Everybody take a minute tonight (or today) to raise a glass to HeckDad.  My sister just called to tell me that he passed away at home.  Don't have details other than he fell, but he was 94 with a bad

That place sounds like a rip-off.  From what I understand, they rope you in with a low price for the bear but then charge a lot for the clothes, scent, heartbeat, etc.

Yes, but his wife and kids have been gone for 2.5 hours already, with the promise of more alone time to come.

It's like you people don't even bother reading.

Make sure you point out to your wife that it's a good thing that her time has so little value that standing in line for 2.5 hours to save $15 is worth it. That way she feels good about how she used her time instead of feeling like it was a bad choice.

BTW the winery is owned by the dude that owns the Vegas Knights.  Not sure if I can root for them again.

I’ll root for Mondavi over them next time.

Made grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch today. Instead of butter or mayo to coat the bread, I used Thousand Island dressing:thumbup::pickle:

Damn, that was tasty. It was like you already had dipped your sandwich in your tomato soup

Daughter asked me to go to court today with her for a speeding ticket. 74 in a 50 in a construction zone (The zoo interchange for those of you in Milwaukee) at 9:30 on a Sunday night. He actually dropped it to 19 over.

Court was supposed to be at 8:30, 9..... no judge, finally at 9:35 he shows up. All jovial and saying good morning...... Everyone was pretty hacked off........ Until he announced that today only, everyone in the court would get their tickets reduced to a Parking ticket, 0 points and their original fine, unless you were there for a DUI, Reckless Driving etc. They hand out a sheet before hand that gives you 4 options, none are reduced to 0 points, best case was paying about $100+ more and reduced by only 2 pts.

I told her she should buy a lottery ticket tonight

so she got 0 pts or she paid $100+ and a 2pt reduction?

How is doing 24 over in a construction zone not reckless driving?

Reduced to a Parking ticket, 0 points and original fine. In her case was $204

They told everyone to disregard the sheet that explained everyone's options.

He (The Sheriff) reduced it to 19 over. I'm thinking because it was 9:30 on a Sunday night and there was no work being done. She did get rooked tho. Coming out of the zoo interchange, to get to her exit which is less that a 1/4 mile, you have to get on the gas to get over as traffic is merging from the right, so you either gun it when you get an opening to get over or risk an accident. He basically got her right at that moment.

My first thought was the same as yours.

Guise?  No offense but I feel like I'm carrying the GMTAN these days.  It says right there in the title "about nothing," and I've been trying my best to contribute nothing.

Btw, I had to call Directv four more times today - not important why except to mention the seven hours or so total I've spent with them and the internet provider in the last two days - and they came up with a new question, "Who's your childhood hero?"

Anyway, y'all need to provide some content.  I"ll be waiting over here, between the hours of 12-4.

We signed up for Hulu last night so my wife can start watching The Handmaids Tale. I asked her, "Are people talking about that show at work?"

Her response: "EVERYBODY is talking about this show."

Is this something you can see yourself doing forever? If not, it’s a waste of time and you’ll fall back into old habits, probably.

Congrats.  Keep it going, but it's going to take discipline to keep it off over the long term.  As Mark Twain once said - "The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't like, and do what you'd rather not."

I've contributed more about nothing than most around here.  There are many days when I don't even post at all.

grilled cheese and pickles?

i find myself thinking this has to be weird.... then realize that 90% of the time i eat a grilled cheese, it's with a pickle chaser.

I’m not in any way opposed to mayo, but using it instead of butter for grilling seems odd and frightening to me

They're both a combo of fat and protein.  Both brown up really nicely on the bread.

If I ate one done that way without knowing, I'm sure it would taste fine.

But I have a complicated relationship with mayo for some unknown reason. There are certain food types I don't want mayo anywhere near; just thinking about it makes me feel wrong. Same with cooking it. I have no idea where this came from - I'm usually down with most every normal combo of food/condiment.

My odd use of a condiment is inspired by this scene from the Sopranos. Ever since then, I've always added Sour Cream to my eggs for scrambled or omelets 

One night was Gyros platter night at the Problem House and there ended up being leftovers. When I went to make omelets the next morning I decided to use the leftovers, Finding that I was out of sour cream, in went the Tzatziki. Worked great! The dill and garlic played perfectly with the eggs. So anytime there's some in the house, it goes into the eggs.
