A box of chocolates!

So maybe I don't care what he thinks.
|7 hours 44 min ago||That's what you get for hiring a Cusack as your attorney||
Johnny Cochran would have gotten an acquittal.
A man with one arm? The doc clearly did no harm.
|7 hours 52 min ago||I was about to post something about the Senate||
But they're practically a bunch of spring chickens these days. Last time I looked the Senate had a bunch of guys in their 80s and some in their 90s...McCain in his mid-70s was like #15 in age. Now the median age is 61, there are only five over 80, and the oldest is Feinstein (just turned 82 in June). So scratch that.

the gif of her tossing back the the duvet and patting the bed. You've got my attention, what is the movie?
|5 days 11 hours ago||How sad is it that||
1. The officials didn't stop play with a guy laid out on the floor, and
2. The Thunder had a 5-on-4 and managed only to turn the ball over.

to run the 110-yard dash? Or is it 110 meters?

I do remember.
My father suggested that the above Quebec license plate motto meant "let me show you my souvenirs." #dadhumor

Are they all in for Michigan?
|1 week 1 day ago||We had the early morning wake-up call in NE Ohio||
Massive lightning and thunder with heavy rain in the 4:30-6:30 timeframe. The power was out for a minute or so at around 5:15 and the clock radio blinking woke me up. I checked my wife's cell phone for the time and read 6:25am. So I showered and then noticed the clock in the bathroom said 5:35. I got up an hour early. Of course our children (8 and 4) were awakened by the thunder at 5:45, so I wouldn't have been able to sleep to the 6:10am alarm anyway. They're going to be a wreck today, to say nothing of me.

I have a screencap of it somewhere, not online. The Weather Channel headline read "Jim Cantore Hammered in Outer Banks." Plenty of people get that way there.

It really tied the room together.

whose first name is Bossman. That's got style.
|2 weeks 6 hours ago||Why does a dog lick his personal region?||
Because he can. Same goes for college tuition. Virtually unlimited demand because of government-backed student loans. I've told this story before, but the LSA dean spoke to our local alumni club about 12 years ago. A harried-looking alumnus and tuition-paying parent asked what the school was doing to keep tuition increases in check. The dean managed not to guffaw but he did smirk like a champ. The easy money is what allows tuition to go up, and the mushrooming of administrative positions solves the problem of what universities should do with the money.

have free WiFi and soy lattes? Maybe the prisoners won't even notice they're in prison.

The costs are all out of line with the benefits. I wonder what it will be like when my kids (now 8 and 4) are college-age.

Though I've been to one of the north Detroit suburbs locations.
Also, Omega Pizza.

Chris Farley says that was awesome.

Searching in vain. I'm thrilled that there is a Penney's commercial. Super awesome.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||Demographic tidbit||
4% of the African-American population of Winchester, Indiana just committed to Michigan.

I wonder what percentage of the game 3 winners have won the series.

Something like: "Greetings, Birthday Club Member. Can you believe you're another year older? Wow! From me, Geoffrey, and all of us at Toys R Us, here's hoping your birthday is as special as you are."
I can't wait to hear the next one.
"Greetings, Birthday Club Member. Did you know that you could upgrade to a personalized call with just a $49.99 annual membership fee? That's a #wow experience for sure. From me, Geoffrey, CEO Dave Brandon, CMO Hunter Lochmann, and all of the well-dressed employees with clean offices, here's hoping your birthday is as special as we are."
|4 weeks 1 day ago||I referred to this just last weekend||
Looking at the toys from my youth (same era as this commercial) that my parents had saved and my children were now using. Nothing in the "Bag O" line.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Not only that||
See his reply above. Ten years ago he used it for everything, but his "spam" has only been used once. #coolstorybro

I know they picked up some guys via free-agency and trades, and with LeBron they were only bad enough to havea good first-round pick once (his first season).
Look who the team drafted during his seven years:
2003: 31st pick Jason Kapono
2004: 10th pick Luke Jackson
2005: no picks
2006: 25th pick Shannon Brown, 42nd pick Daniel Gibson, 55th pick Ejike Ugboaja
2007: no picks
2008: 19th pick JJ Hickson
2009: 30th pick Christian Eyenga, 46th pick Danny Green (has had a good career but only with the Spurs, after the Cavs waived him)
That's one decent 2nd round pickup (Gibson) and a too late to do much okay first rounder in Hickson, in seven drafts.
