Some friends and I were looking to go out in Ann Arbor for New Year's Eve. Does anyone know what the scene is like on NYE? Despite being an alum, I never actually went out in AA on NYE. I know some places have big pricy tickets (i.e. Conor O'Neill's/Cavern Club), but what are some of the other places like on NYE?
I saw ABC has a party. I haven't been to the new Habana yet, but saw they have something going on. What is that like? Charley's, Jug, Rick's, Babs, Ashley's, etc... where are the places to go on NYE?
Any feedback would be much appreciated!
It has been a very difficult Christmas day for the wife and myself. Normally, I would never post this here, but I needed an outlet.
Last night, when we returned from church, our dog, Hunny, our 5-year-old Baenji, did not meet us at the door like normal. Something was wrong. We didn't think too much of it and put her in the bed with us, although we were concerned.
This morning, she did not have the strength to stand so I took her to the emergency clinic.
Long story short, the doctor discovered that Hunny has a softball-sized tumor in her spleen and she was bleeding internally. We elected to spend the money for surgery because the dog is our child.
We are not out of the woods yet but Hunny came out of surgery in the past hour and is recovering. However, there were complications and the chances that the tumor is benign is less than 30 percent.
So, I need your prayers. I have cried on end today and I dread what may come. I have put down too many "family members" but this one would hit the hardest. We do not have any kids yet and Hunny - if you met her - has a very unique personality.
UPDATE 1: We just returned from the animal hospital and Hunny is fighting. She wagged her tail as we came back to see her and was able to walk on her own power (she couldn't move this morning). We left her her Christmas toy bear.
The doctor said the surgery went very well considering 600ml of blood spilled out of her when they opened her for surgery. The tumor was already split in half so they had to act fast. Good news is her blood levels are holding and her heartbeat issues from earlier seem better. Tonight will be the big test.
Thanks for your thoughts and prayers. I cannot tell you how much it means.
UPDATE 2: Hunny made it through the night without problems and her condition has been upgraded to stable. We took her from the emrgency clinic to our regular vet today for continued monitoring.
I can say Hunny was her normal self this morning, as she was able to get in and out of the car without too much problems and she looked really good considering the significance of the surgery.
Her blood levels have steadied and she should be able to return home this afternoon. The vet is sending the spleen sample out to determine if the tumor is malignent. We are keeping our fingers crossed.
Again, I can't thank you guys enough for your kind words and prayers. Your words have provided much comfort in dark times. God bless.
UPDATE 3 (Thursday): She is home!
We brought Hunny home late Wednesday. It was a great reunion. My Husky, Dakota, was very happy to see her. The night had some hiccups but all seems well.
Took her back to the vet early Thursday for more blood work and it appears her levels have not decreased despite being off fluids. This is obviously great because a transfusion could be a risky venture.
The vet sent the tumor to confirm whether it is benign. At this point, she is resting comfortably at home. Her appetite is good all things considered and she has some of that pep back in her walk. I will keep you guys informed. Thanks again.
So every year me and my gal spend Christmas Eve with her big family before we come back to my place and do our gift exchanges.
She gets me lots of stuff every year and part of my gifts this time were real comfy M Bath Slippers, awesome BBall shorts with pockets, long sleeve Maize Shirt with a Block M and Helmet, I love the look and an M Apron and Spatula for the BBQ,
Big score for me and I don't feel like a geek at all, the M Den really appreciates my gal. So what did you guys get, anything cool?
Merry Christmas everyone, I hope everyone has an awesome holiday season!
I'm sure a lot of people just had the championship for their fantasy teams this week. Since the board is going to be quiet, how did you do? What was your greatest triumph? Biggest mistake? etc.
This is the first year I won my league, hence making this thread to gloat, but I also want wisdom for next year.
The Core of my team (12 team league):
-Megatron - 1st Round
-AJ Green - 2nd Round
-AP / Matt Ryan - 3rd/4th Round (I forget which right now)
-Shonne Gree and James Jones were my main 2nd RB and 3rd WR
So maybe the B1G should rethink all these annual awards named after past players and athletes and coaches.... or, at least, adopt the Statue Rule: no statues for living people, and so no annual awards named after them either.
We all probably saw the news about the bizarre double life of 44yo wife, mom, ex-Olympian, and, yes, obviously, logically, Las Vegas hooker, Suzy Favor-Hamilton.
As the story mentions, the B1G's annual award to Top Female Athelete is named after her.
Correction: is currently named after her. It's obviously gonna get renamed.
Smarmy jokes to follow, fer shoor.
I just wanted to wish everybody a Happy Festivus! before the Mayan Apocolypse rains down hellfire. Merry Christmas. Peace to you all.
WHAT R U DRINKING?
