My in-laws do the same thing. Drives me nuts, as I like having my own space. Good luck, Mabel.
|1 day 3 hours ago||Big weekend||
I've got my first race in over a year (due to injury) on Sunday. Looking forward to it, but could use a nice bang to get the weekend started on the right foot.

Excellent "We're the Millers" reference.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Re: Catholicism and divorce||
Catholicism doesn't per se prohibit divorce. But, the Church would prohibit a remarriage (without an annulment). It also holds that any sexual relationship after a divorce (again, without an annulment) is adultery. In those circumstances, you could be refused the Eucharist.
You may want to talk about these things with your parish priest or your spiritual director. Again, best of luck. Thought about you during my prayer this morning.

Bi-polar is tough, but often controllable with meds. But, there may be some other underlying things that need to be surfaced. A good counselor might help you work through that stuff. Good luck.
|2 days 21 hours ago||Seconded||
Based on first-hand experience. I went from a much higher-paying, awful job with awful people to government work. I still make very good money, but the lifestyle is orders of magnitude better. Income potential is limited, but I have an awesome work-home life balance and never dread coming to the office.

Life is too short to waste time trying to convince yourself that you can tolerate bullshit.
So true. Dated a girl at UM that was totally wrong for me. High maintenance, bunch of bullshit. Dated her for far too long. Really helped me learn the lesson you just said, though. When I started dating my wife, I knew she was a keeper, as there was NO bullshit.

During my senior year at UM, I really wrestled with whether I should continue on to law school (which was the plan), or become a pilot (lifelong dream). I ended up taking the test with the Navy and did really well. But, the class for flight school was full, and I would have had to wait at least a year for a shot. I opted to go to law school.
There are times now where I really wish I had gone the other way. But, if I had, I would not have met my wife, and I would not have my children. I am very content with where I'm at. So, yeah, there's a little regret, but it still worked out extremely well.

How many other websites do you go to in order to pick fights? Get a life.

I had a wreck during a triathlon last year, in which I broke my orbital socket in three places, had a TBI, and a concussion (I don't recommend this). On doctor's orders, I couldn't ride my bike on the road or compete for a year.
Started training for a sprint tri in April. I'm an experienced and (relatively) fast runner, have a decent swim, but my bike stinks. Hired a coach. I've been cleared to ride on the road for about 45 days now. I've seen marked improvement. My first race is on Sunday - will see what kind of improvement in all three disciplines I've made.

In addition, the testimony about Schiano is hearsay - it's what Bradley told McQueary Schiano said. Doesn't make it false, but it's also not nearly as damning as the testimony about Bradley.
|1 week 3 days ago||Yes||
I also think "Dave Brandon's Big Book of Real Good PR" needs the TM superscript to follow.

When we potty trained my son last year, we used ice cream as a bribe. He'd go sit on the toilet, and absolutely strain and squeeze until a penny-sized turd fell out. He'd then demand his ice cream. That incentive quickly stopped.

He also won Ironman 70.3 Coeur d'Alene a few weeks ago. His swim and bike were similar, but looks like his Vineman run was a bit faster. Guy is straight up filthy.

This was the best show on TV. Really well done.

It's like Michigan is trying to punish season ticket holders . . .
|3 weeks 19 hours ago||Yep||
But better yet, just don't use the phone at all. Studies show that cognition is impaired worse when texting (and maybe talking?) than it is when drunk.
|3 weeks 19 hours ago||Can confirm Nashville||
I lived there for 10 years. They are pretty bad. But, really, I've found that drivers are bad pretty much everywhere. The advent of the smart phone has made driving significantly more dangerous.

Despite all the problems we have here in the USA, it is still the best place on Earth. This time of year, I always think of the absolute courage the founding fathers displayed, and the brilliance of the structure of our republic.
On a slightly related note, any thoughts on how jacked up for the 4th Harbaugh gets? I'd love to see it.
|4 weeks 4 days ago||Polos?||
I can't justifying buying New Jersey - it comes with too much debt and too many tenants I'd have to evict.
Polos aren't exactly cheap either. And the nacho casualty factor still applies.
|6 weeks 20 hours ago||I agree||
but don't tell that to Illinois
|6 weeks 22 hours ago||No||
Rivalries develop organically, usually over time. This is just Rutgers being "Jersey", all talk and no walk.

My brother, a ND grad, and I had an annual bet on the game. Winner got a bottle of Woodford Reserve (also, an empty bottle with the scores written on as a trophy). I, for one, look forward to enjoying some good bourbon courtesy of those annoying Frenchies with an identity problem.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||No||
I will be disappointed if Hawaii scores at all.
edit - Sydney beat me to it.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Ditto (on the dump)||
A solid way to start the day. Hopefully not too solid, though.
|6 weeks 1 day ago||Happy Friday||
May the peace of Harbaugh be with you all weekend.

Just don't read 11 Warriors at all.

Where else will one find comments based on the Karate Kid, and those comments will be apropos?
