Buy historic homes in Kalamazoo before contracts are revised.
Dec 31st 2012 3:24PM Guinness in Ireland ruined me for other Guinness. I was always a fan of it in the States until I traveled to Ireland &, upon return, had to switch to Murphy's because I couldn't get over the difference. Guinness in its native land is so rich but totally smooth - not bitter at all. I found one place in Wales that matched the taste, & I asked the owner what he did to keep his Guinness so good. His response: he cleaned the tap daily. There is definitely something to that.
Dec 1st 2010 11:14AM The damage has already been done. Everyone knows what a crude @$$hole he is. He desperately relied on crudeness & curse words to be funny, but he wasn't funny, so take that away and now he sucks worse. And I love it.
Oct 27th 2010 4:48PM Ugh! That's so weird. Maybe they can wear lobsters for hats!
Why bother to do hold the celebrated tradition if you're going to brainstorm ways of deviating from it? It's not the prom. White's not the most complimentary color, but it does represent a wedding dress. Except for these red bridal gown people, most would treat this as their ONE wedding day (rather than an opportunity to show smarter people how rebeliously tacky and different they are). I wish there was a bet going for how many of these red folks will choose white or off-white for their second and/or third marriages.
However subtly, it suggests how seriously and maturely they're taking this day. I know a girl who knows a girl who wore a black gown, and truly, my heart went out to her in knowing how stupid and embarassed she'd feel when she looks at those pictures later.
Oct 27th 2010 4:02PM Amen! We must be married to the same idiot. Only I'm getting my dream divorce right now because of that same crap, so don't think you're alone! I've never been happier. $6000 in legal fees to split up hundreds of thousands in assets (including his porn stash, which counts as a collectible, by the way).
I knew our marriage went stale when he took my student loans to buy Nutty Mads and clothes for his damn GI Joes, then later a motorcycle. Someone that greedy and selfish has long quit thinking about you and your happiness, so get gone and start the good, happy life God intended you to have.
Sep 30th 2010 3:37PM I am convinced that my stepdaughter has this and have been for some time. Reading this only further confirms it, right down to the horse-talks at dinner time. My decade-long observation of it brought me to realize how easy it is for parents of these to feed the illness by overprotection and justification. Aspergers children are smart - They may not understand society, but they can certainly memorize proper social behavior if their parents care enough to reinforce it. Isn't that right, Mike and Laura...
Sep 30th 2010 8:53AM Bolton must not have ever watched the show. These are not toddler pageant judges - they are professionals giving professional opinions, perhaps in a not-so-professional way, but you know, you come on public television and do a crappy job like Hasselhoff did in all his creepy splendor, and you're gonna' get a reaction worthy of public attention. He's lucky they didn't start in on the fact that he sings like a Chuck-E-Cheese animatronic.
Sep 7th 2010 11:11AM She didn't get special treatment; everyone else just gets put on the shelf while the po-pos are shoveling down donuts. Goes to show how quickly work gets done when people are watching. I can't imagine why processing would take 6 hours anyway.

The pollen and other allergens here make this the world's capital of feeling like $#!+ several months out of the year. Part of our nightly routine is clawing at our eyes and waking up to use the inhaler.
Take that, plus the humidity, which biting insect llllooove, and all this whiny talk about illegals kinda' becomes secondary. To hell with them, anyway. Oh, wait - That's Tallahassee.
Aug 6th 2010 8:39AM Well, like it or not, it's bad business to use grody imperfections to promote a product. They first campaigned for women looking like real women, and now they're reminding us to ACT LIKE WOMEN.
