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

and after 3 days, he is risen!

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

Upon a closer glance, her ass is decent and she is super cute. Got that little turned up nose that is very sexy. Young.

 

 

Maybe its the beer

 

You think my pizza is ready yet?

 

Who's driving?

Not liking it is one thing, but to not consider it a sport?

 

I have a never-written column that explains why the rise of the NFL and the downfall of America as a competent nation go hand-in-hand together.

 

I was just busting your balls. I loved soccer growing up. Played for years and was pretty good. Just not interesting on TV at all for me.

 

Which of these do you think would feel the best?

 

1. NBA - less than one second left, down by two, hit a three-pointer at the buzzer.

2. NFL - last play of the game, down by 5, score a TD.

3. MLB - bottom of the 9th, two outs, down by two, runners on 1st and 2nd, hit walk-off home run.

 

It has to be the home run, right?

 

#3.

 

Have your dream car, but you can never replace it. If it breaks down, you have to fix it. If it gets wrecked, you have to fix it. If it gets stolen, you have to recover it. Otherwise you are without a car the rest of your life.

 

or...

 

Have a really crappy Ford Pinto type car that you can never customize in any way, but anytime anything goes wrong with it, you get a replacement.

 

After selling cars for a few years I started just looking at them as transportation, a tool to get from here to there. I don't care much what I drive as long as it's reliable and suits the need.

From the time the registration expires?

 

Every state I've ever lived gives you 30 days from expiration. However:

 

" Late Fees and Penalties

 

The CA DMV does not offer any grace period for late renewals. If you miss the deadline, you will be subject to three types of late fees:

  • A percentage of your standard renewal
  • A flat late fee
  • A flat California Highway Patrol (CHP) late fee

Late fees are charged in addition to your regular renewal cost. These fees increase over time, getting more expensive the longer you delay. "

 

Oops. You're screwed.

 

 

Oh yeah, my desktop crashed at home and I am going to replace it with a laptop. No HP or Apple. What should I get? Does windows 8 really suck?

 

No, it's good.

 

I was on the field my senior year when we drove 70 yards, with 1:40 left to go to secure a come from behind victory 15-14 in the state playoffs. We broke a 50 yard run (over my side of the line, actually, we were in an unbalanced line) and the coach came out and asked if we wanted to kick the ep or go for two. All of our adreniline coarsing, we wanted to go for two, the coach screams FCK YEAH WE'RE GOING FOR 2. We stuck it in, won, kicked off, they ran one play, clock expired, we advanced to the next round of the playoffs. (We lost that one in double overtime)

 

On the field when the clock expired, it was so emotional, i remember tears of joy. So, to answer your question, the stakes matter

 

I've also hita lot hr's and that is a supreme "look at me" moment that I loved. I'd rarely start my jog until the ball landed if it was a no doubter, which they mostly were. Cant remember a walkoff

 

A 3 pointer would feel similar to an HR for me. I'd go all Gilbert Arenas that season he was a beast. Shoot it, turn around, stand there cockily while it sank. Just serene. Who knows, maybe I'd go buckwild

 

Sorry for the al bundy hs football story. Not usually my bag. Gave me goosebumbs just typing it, 23+ years later

 

I was already looking for Al Bundy pics before I finished your post. Lucky save.

 

How 'bout it, huh? Right?

 

 

So I was thinking...would you rather...

 

Have your dream car, but you can never replace it. If it breaks down, you have to fix it. If it gets wrecked, you have to fix it. If it gets stolen, you have to recover it. Otherwise you are without a car the rest of your life.

 

or...

Crappy car. I don't care about the car I drive at all, just as long as it has AC and heat, I'll take crappy everyday and twice on Tuesday.

 

 

If I had a canoe, I'd do that thing that making the rounds of filling up a canoe with ice and making it your cooler. May still get a keg. Can get Lost Coast Apricot wheat, which I like alot

Westin Lake Mary, 9/27 if you're in town

 

PM the address. I'm coming. Also, I have a canoe. So I'll drive down, and bring my canoe.

 

Do you guys think I could set a thread record and make every post on one page?

No, I don't.

Beans is literally the best.

 

 

 

 

:bigtoothygrinface:

 

 

 

I sure hope you have a strong back should I ever decide to crowd-surf the thread....

 

 

 

beans, i was watching a show about repossessing airplanes and one of the guys supposedly took off without avionics or radio. what kind of consequences would that likely bring in a non-scripted situation?

 

 

 

Ya know, this question got me to thinking about just how long ago it was that I cracked open the FARS and passed my written test....

 

 

 

 

Hint: Although I did take the exam on a computer, it was a black and white tube monitor. Maybe had a mouse... dont recollect

 

 

 

 

I showed up without a cardboard point the wheel "mileage computer" and scale ruler for plotting out a virtual cross country trip on the fold up paper sectional. Since I never learned to use either one properly I took an educated guess. Passed it anyway. I think there were an additional fifty questions. Perhaps true/false.

 

 

 

 

The practical test with the FAA gal lasted all of twenty minutes. Crosswinds were close to twenty knots and the poor little cessna was crabbed so far to the left on approach I almost had to do a go around from the distraction of her cleavage shining right below the runway number. At the last second I focused my eyes back to the asphalt, kicked the nose back straight, greased the right wheel on, and held the left main off until lift deteriorated and the nose came down....

 

 

 

 

"Nice"

 

 

 

"Thanks.... I usually get the mains planted earlier than that in a crosser but since youre my first female passenger I had to show off a little, I guess"

 

 

 

"It would have been a touch safer"

 

 

 

"You want a full stall spin and recover?"

 

 

 

(Beans glances over and imagines those boobs in a weightless environment)

 

 

 

"Well....thats not required for a private ticket, and since you demonstrated knowledge of just about everything else during that last landing, I say we taxi back and get you a license"

 

 

 

"Cool"

 

 

 

"....Plus Im not dressed for spins today anyway"

 

 

 

"Damn"

 

 

 

(giggle)

 

 

 

 

Anyhoo.... a radio is a requirement for entering or leaving from class c, d, and b airspace. B standing for "busy" according to my old instructor. Also for instrument flight. Unless something has changed its not required for basic vfr flight to/from uncontrolled fields... meaning without a tower. You also need an encoding transponder for class b space

 

 

 

I was told during "training" that in the event of radio failure the guys in the tower would flash a spotlight at you for instructions. Sorta like morse code. No idea what they were/are. Maybe you have to wag the wings in the pattern to trigger the flashes. Too many beers since then...

 

 

 

You can get a special "ferry permit" with certain functions of the aircraft inoperable like wheels not retracting and missing stuff required for toting passengers but not inhibiting a safe flight from where its stranded to another airport with maintenance facilities, but the main instruments for safe flight like airspeed, altimeter, lights, and engine heath dials have to work properly. A FAA man has to inspect the plane before departure and sign off on the one time permit before it leaves.

 

 

 

A border patrol pilot once told me he got a ferry permit to fly a seven twenty seven with one engine dead.... Since those things had three in such close proximity that yaw would be a factor I could understand that. Dont expect to get one for a twin with just one lung or fly a ferry during bad weather though...

 

 

 

 

I saw a few minutes of that repossession thing last week.... showed some doof driving around looking for ways to sneak in the hangar areas. I dont care who ya are these days.... thats just asking for time in the cross bar hotel. If you have the proper documentation like a court order I see no reason why not to take it to a airport manager and be escorted down to the plane to seize it

 

 

 

Im gonna ask around out of curiosity anyway.... my notion at the moment is its fake drama

 

 

 

 

 

 

In other news, bad day today. Somehow I managed to get up from the chair, arch my back and stretch my back from doing paperwork all morning, and promptly locked up my right knee solid. Cant move it a bit. Like walking on a wooden leg. Hurts like the dickens to even think about bending it

 

 

 

 

Didn go to docs since I cant even get in a car let alone drive one. Nobody around to take me so I watched TV and drank beer while popping muscle relaxers. Going in the morning, though. Cant wait to see what he does after laughing like a fool at my dead leg gait into the examining room....

 

 

 

 

Pretty sure he'll tell me to lie back, grab ahold of my foot, and giggle for a second before pulling it like a hard to start push mower

 

 

 

 

Im not wearing underwear so when he does and I shit my shorts, well, you know...

 

 

 

 

 

...short baggy shorts, too

I know buddy and I love you too. She's basically been out of commission this month with the exam and now that that's over she's visiting her mother. But once she gets back things gotta go a certain way or its time to move on. I can at least go that far.

 

I hope shit works out for the best. However, if not and you follow through...well wtf are we gonna shit on you about besides your shitty job, lack of friends, inability to drive in inclement weather....nevermind.

 

Did you know evites have polls? I just learned that. So I sent out the invitation list. I think it was something like 40 families, I would guess half can make it. We have 3 responses already 2 NO and 1 YES.

 

For the Poll I asked what Movie we should watch out on the lawn:

  1. Neverending Story
  2. Flight of the Navigator
  3. Sandlot
  4. Goonies
  5. Pixar/Disney movie (we have almost all of them)

 

I like polls.

 

gotta be sandlot. entertaining for kids and adults.

 

Those are horrible movie choices.

 

Anchorman

Midnight Run

CSL

Lebowski

 

Eddin kids ruin everything. Parties, women's bodies, erections, a buzz, orher stuff

 

I didnt get my evite Guapy. You're off the wedding invite list

 

We decided (finally) to do our ceremony locally. Booked a gazeebo thing at a scenic area, having a party at the house. Was gonna cater it but I hate crappy, pre-frozen catered food, so I'm gonna prepare the entire menu. So excited for the challenge. I'm a little limited because I cant be cooking all day of the wedding/party.

 

Hired the musician. Excited about that part. Excited about going and buying a shit ton pf booze and beer. If I had a canoe, I'd do that thing that making the rounds of filling up a canoe with ice and making it your cooler. May still get a keg. Can get Lost Coast Apricot wheat, which I like alot

 

Menu will be bbq. Lots of crock pots in play so once its set up, I'm good. Pulled pork, mac and cheese, baked beans, cole slaw, cucumber, onion and tomato salad, rolls for sandwiches, soft taco torillas for pulled pork tacos with slaw and pineapple relish, cornbread, cream puffs, maybe a brisket or two, sweet and sour meatballs as a pick upon. Chips and dip, chips and salsa

 

Any other food ideas from my cooks?

 

make sure you do a trial run with the crock pots etc to make sure the outlets can handle it.

Why wouldn't they? I've used one before

 

have you run multiple crock pots at the same time in your anticipated serving location?

 

had a little family reunion this summer, which is quite a feat for my mom's side. she has 9 siblings (living) so when you factor in their spouses, kids, the kids' spouses and kids it turns into quite the brood. we were trying to have ribs on saturday and planned on just keeping them, baked beans, and a couple other dishes in crock pots but we had to totally rearrange the layout because we were pulling to much juice from the intended outlets and kept throwing the breaker. just saying it's going to be much less stressful to do a dry run a week or two ahead of time instead of trying to call an audible on the wedding day.

 

do i need to come down a few days early and play wedding planner?

No so fast there Mr. Brvy. I'm not late registering in CA because the car hasn't been registered in CA, it was registered in WA. When transfering title and registering in CA they ask when you brought the car into the state. (Anything over 30 days and they charge a penalty) The gal that's helping me, when I told her I brough the car into the state in November 2012 said....

 

"Oh, hmmm....let me ask you this, Have you had any parking or other tickets while you've been in California?"

 

"No. Haven't had a ticket of any kind in 20 years or so"

 

"Ok great. So you brought the car into the state last week."

 

"..." "Ok.....sounds about right to me"

 

"Great! Now we don't have to worry about paying a late fee for failing to register"

 

<<<slips a $20 across the counter>>>>

I was going to say we start a fund to increase the quality of the bartendress at the Mexicon wedding (everyone throws in 5, 10, 20 bucks) because maybe it becomes two bartendresses but I think getting Hank some gas hooker money is a better idea

Deets are above. You are seriously, openly invited. PM me.

 

Good info on the crocks. I will take that into consideration.

 

After my 4 Yuenglings, came home and had 9 tangerine wheats. I feel like quack on a parenting night.

Dammit rtm, I was all about your idea and willing to take pics. Now I'm in for $20 with Hank. You just cost me dough

ok ok ok. we need someone to do a 100% match on this deal. Hank drives out and writes a blog. MexiMelt gets two ladies for the bar and gets lots of pics and makes sure their outfits are miami summer appropriate. someone at the wedding bags one or both. if it's Hank then he still gets to keep the money. win. win. win.
