and after 3 days, he is risen!

If you are paying $20 for a haircut, I imagine people assume you did it yourself anyway.

Pocket change cost me my first and only black girlfriend.   It was in the middle of a roaring poker boom and I was flush in ways most men don't even bother dreaming of. Money, it was like dirt to me

Sadly, if I had to extend my list to 15, there are probably a handful of people here who have a bigger impact on my life than, you know, people I actually know. Seriously, I probably care more about the Shake/Speedz/Cindy/Ouch reaction to a joke I make here than I do about what my 15th-best friend thinks about me. That's not because Shake/Speedz/Cindy/Ouch are particularly special, but rather because I have no friends and live a pleasntly solitary existence.
I WAS LISTED FIRST!
INCORRECT SIR!
really, really hating life right now.
What's up? After posting all the stuff below I'm really confused about life.
those friends remind me of a few people that I've come across over the years. I haven't really made the best life decisions either, and i've generally taken a **** em POV when someone that I thought was a friend has given me shit like that. I distinctly remember 5 or 6 years ago a guy that I considered my best friend just unloading on me unneccessarily. There had been some shit brewing up, but I could tell that he was taking a POV that I'm graduating and all keith is doing is making money hand over fist and has dropped out. Of course what he failed to think about was that all he had to do was pay rent and for his own food for house matters as I covered everything else. There was a brief period at one point where a whole bunch of my money was tied up in too many things and I needed some cash to cover the gas and asked him and he was really late on paying. He told me that I didn't do shit in the house anyway and that he was having a hard time thinking why he should bother wiht me at all. I really haven't told someone off as badly as I told him as we had lived together in the same apt and then house since our sophmore year, and here he was being an ungrateful **** and I was running the risk of what inevtiablly happened. He was so full of shit that he "apologized" to me through his Girl Friend and didn't have the balls to say anything to me to my face. His olive branch, 4 4 packs of tetleys and boddingtons. I haven't said a word to him in several years and couldn't care less about ever seeing or hearing from him again
I had a friend that I've had since the 2nd grade. We went to the same high school and then we headed to the same University. He was my best friend for a really long time. Then we started drifting apart towards the end of highschool, but I still thought we cool. I was wrong. This guy had taken a serious hating to most of the people in the world while becoming very cliquey with those he still liked. I was in the hate group. I was sitting in lectures most days of the week while this guy was sitting next to me apparently loathing me.It all became obvious when I broke up with my now ex-girlfriend for about two weeks. He actually started talking to us both more, saying we'd done the right thing or whatever. Then we got back together. He stopped talking to me again and actually became very very bitchy towards my ex. This upset her a lot. I had an msn conversation with him trying to get him to explain. He was very friendly, but it wasn't a nice conversation. I pretty much said apologise to my ex, and I'm not going to talk to you again until you do. We haven't spoken more than 5 words to each other since then. Despite all this I do actually miss him, it's hard to have someone that was such a part of my life just shut out like that. But it did lead me to making good friends with my current group, leading to me having the housemates I have. I don't really know if there is a point to this story but it is something that I still think about every so often.
I think I used to do that, take the hard-line approach, but my perspective has... shifted, shall we say, in recent years. Life is incredibly short, and there are only a handful of people that bring value-added to situations, and, for them, I tend to forgive their flaws, because: mine are probably so much worse. I used to have a list of unforgivable sins, and have since softened my stance. I value loyalty above all other personality traits, and loyalty can be hard to judge. Some people have tempers, and make bad shortterm decisions due to their emotional state, but I have good instincts about people. Now, if I let you in, I assume you've passed the important "BLINK" tests, and give you the benefit of the doubt. If you abandon me, it's probably because I deserve it on some level. If you try to make amends, I give you credit for trying.Apologizing is hard. I'm incredibly good at it now, but in my youth I was awful. I used to view the admission of personal failures as a sign of extreme weakness, until I learned the opposite from one of my friends. He never gave half-apologies or excuses (eg: "I'm sorry you feel that way"), but when he did apologize, it was sincere, yet never pleading. It struck me. THAT is hard to do, and that kind of blunt, honest admission of failure -- admitting you were wrong with no prompting, and explaining your behavior without excusing or rationalizing it to make yourself look better, relying on your friends to successfully make those judgments for you -- is a sign of incredible strength that I was envious of for a time. It took me 3 years, but I finally figured out how he does it. He never lies to himself, and lives his life such that he never has to lie to anyone else. That's hard, but makes things so easy. Anyway, I know how hard saying "sorry" is, especially when you're as prideful as I am, so if somebody tries, they get full-credit 99% of the time.Wang
I really hope that someday I can live like your friend does. I actually find it very hard to be honest with myself. I think I look down on myself to much and get depressed. I also think I'm too self conscious for my own good, which is why I end up trying to be a kind of clown in the groups I hang around with. Enough of this sad self analysis. Funny story time. Saturday night was the rubix cube party. I got quite drunk and rowdy. The girl that I've hooked up with a bit this year (new year, a party, two weeks ago) is there. We make out a little bit, I try and get her to come home with my housemate and I but she ends up going to our other friends house where she has been staying regularly since she moved back home. Fast foward to Wednesday. Myself, two of my housemates, N and C, and the girl G and one of the guys from the other house P are at the uni bar with a large group of people. N wasn't at the party on Saturday. P and G are being quite touchy feely at the other end of the table, and C comments, not for the first time in recent weeks, "I just wish they'd go out already"Me: Why don't you tell them.C: Maybe I will. You know they've had sex right.At this point P is not around and G has looked over after hearing her name mentioned.Me: No, when?C: Saturday.N looks on in horrified joy as I turn and face G, drop my jaw and burst out in laughter. All three of us start laughing, N at my reaction, and C and myself at the sad timing of it all. G turns away pretending she hasn't noticed anything.

We should have let people bet on this. I would have opened it at Bizzle -115 Wang -105, I think. How would you handicap our chances after Day 1? Snagging a 12-5 upset was big, but I don't remember which one of us had Illinois...SILKY:I like the following sides, in some random semblance of descending order of preference:CornholeStephen ****ing AustinWisky DickCleveland HateMore HeadThe North Dakota State BisonI might find a play on "East Tennessee Fucking Sucks" in the afternoon if the line looks favorable and I'm stuck/chasing.

I'd like to take Wang's side.The only bracket I filled out was one for fun on facebook 10 minutes before tip off and only missed the Clemson game, but I had them losing in the 2nd round anyways so not a bracket buster. It sucks being in the lead of my "pool" from the get go because now I have high expectations even though I'm sure it's all variance since I don't follow basketball and no research was had in my picking process.Lefty, et alAfter a good day at the casino and selling my old driver, I purchased this which is not only super sexy, I hit it like a champ. I took it to the range today and hit a bucket and only sliced a few times as opposed to every time. It's probably a matter of me being stronger/having a better swing than I used to but when I hit it I get the "push" drive where it goes out and then arcs up and then back down instead of just a solid arc. Makes me not feel like such a pussy.

I mean do you even go to work any more?
What's up?
well it's nice that SOMEbody cares. than you sir. well, you remember me talking about those layoffs that I was sure I'd be a part of? well, they happened wednesday. only catch? I wasn't part of them. sounds good right? not when my job duties have now doubled (no, no pay raise, but possibly a reduction in the near future), and most of the stuff I am now responsible for I have absolutely no idea how to do, how to even start trying to figure out how to do, and nobody else in the company knows how to do them either (except for the guy they fired of course). not to mention that my boss has apparently decided to take special notice of every mistake and misstep I make along the way and constantly ask me why I've made them, making the workday all the more enjoyable. not really sure how long I'm going to be able to deal with it.

this confuses me a bit (as do all stories with letters as names it seems), are you saying the girl that you made out with at the party then left and went and banged another dude? if so, then she's a keeper.on a side note there, I think I should move to australia. if I could figure out a way for them to let me continue my gun nuttiness down there, I'd be all about it.

I had Illinois, shrug. I was up 7-4 with 5 games to go but knew based on who had what it was gonna end 9-7 or 8-8 last night.I probably would have opened something like you -108 me -107. I think if we swapped UNC and Memphis it would swap the odds. It's going to be a pretty neutral gamble, like I've said several times, our brackets are too similar and the pick order went almost exactly as expected.

Did you guys make the later games worth more? That would have made it more interesting...

You should look for another job.

Yeah, I always have to go back to figure out who's who and sometimes it just isn't worth it. I propose that if you don't want to tell a story with real names, you substitute forum names in their place.For example...Saturday night was the rubix cube party. I got quite drunk and rowdy. The girl that I've hooked up with a bit this year (new year, a party, two weeks ago) is there. We make out a little bit, I try and get her to come home with my housemate and I but she ends up going to our other friends house where she has been staying regularly since she moved back home. Fast foward to Wednesday. Myself, two of my housemates, Sal Paradise and speedz, and the girl LadyGrey and one of the guys from the other house, Ouch, are at the uni bar with a large group of people. Sal wasn't at the party on Saturday. Ouch and LG are being quite touchy feely at the other end of the table, and speedz comments, not for the first time in recent weeks, "I just wish they'd go out already"Me: Why don't you tell them.speedz: Maybe I will. You know they've had sex right.At this point Ouch is not around and LG has looked over after hearing her name mentioned.Me: No, when?speedz: Saturday.Sal looks on in horrified joy as I turn and face LG, drop my jaw and burst out in laughter. All three of us start laughing, Sal at my reaction, and speedz and myself at the sad timing of it all. LG turns away pretending she hasn't noticed anything.Actually, I'm still not entirely sure what's going on in this story.

Sal you should hire Loogie to market your resume. I heard is good at such things. Marketing, that is.
Sal, you're going to need a logo and a brand color. I suggest red.

When you guys got your wisdom teeth out, did anyone not get knocked out with laughing gas or something similar? I can't imagine being conscious during the procedure, but my girlfriend just had her last two out. She goes to this Syrian/Arabic dentist joint, and when they took the first two out 2 years ago, they kept her awake and she was incapacitated for like 3 days. She just had the other two out today, and they were impacted, and the text I received from her is, "I'm starving and I can't eat and I can't swallow and can't take my meds." Is no anesthesia common?

The guy I went to gave me laughing gas before he'd so much as put the IV in my arm to knock me out. Drugs rule.

Fuckin' A. I didn't drink a lot back when I had mine out, so when they finished I was very woozy and failed multiple times trying to walk on my own power. It was great. It's not a religious thing for my lady either. I think they're just too stubborn to use someone new, which is fine if they aren't putting you in a position where it feels like a separate hospital trip might be needed.

You haven't posted in here in ages an this is what you come back with?Pardon me for getting arrested and not making it to Tampa. I admit, I was out of line

I took Wednesday off because I thought I was going out Tuesday. I worked the rest of the week, even though I was deathly ill yesterday and today, so SUCK IT.Sucks about the job. You really need to simply adjust your attitude. Just go in every day, work hard, but not kill yourself, do what you can do, get done what you can get done, and whatever happens, happens. At some point, if they call you on it all, just respectfully stand up for yourself. If she shitcan you, it doesn't sound like it would be the worst thing in the world. The one time I got fired, it turned out to be for the best. Sometimes, a forced change is what it takes to get you out of a rut. Mind you, mine didn't happen in the middle of one of our country's worst recessions, but still.

Your girlfriend is a pussy. Dental work shouldn't need anesthesia. It's uncomfortable, but not unmanageable. Pain pills for her, which is good for you.Her pain tolerance is clearly low, so no anal, ever. Bad for you.
