Bruins still third in the Atlantic.
Bruins still in Florida.
How long can this go on?
Editing on phone stinks.
What’s on tap?
Emails SatanMom and SatanDad felt the need to include me in:
“I should see if the doctor would do a partial procedure tomorrow
Then I would have a semicolonoscopy”
“Tell the doctor to hurry up, and then you’ll have an apostrophe.”
“Have the procedure done to Smudge and you’ll have a catastrophe.”
My inlaws used to have a cat named Smudge!
You Satans are an odd bunch
I do not deny this.
I mean, I shouldn’t point fingers. the Grenaid clan is a rabble of odd ducks too
She stole my semicolonoscopy joke!
Oooo, didn’t mention that! She’s in trouble!
She’s your mom. She made you. That joke was her intellectual property.
Intellectual should really be in quotes because, well, it’s the SatanFamily we’re talking about.

Sellers finally realized they have the upper hand and are beginning to strong-arm us. The question is, do we wait an uncertain amount of time to get this house, or do we just finally move on?
I feel like there have been enough warning signs to move on. Vaya con dios!
It’s like a bad relationship. They do juuuust enough to bring you back in.
Seems like you should be house-hunting in the meantime. Be careful about not locking yourself into the mindset that if you’ve put so much effort into getting this house that you HAVE to have it. Sometimes walking away after all that effort is the best thing to do.
Yeah. We’ve been looking idly. We’re trying to figure out if we can keep the contract for now, but see if WE have an escape clause should we find something new. This isn’t what’s tying us, but bailing would suck also because unless they are willing to reimburse part of our home inspection (which they by no means would legally have to), we’re out close to $900 when you include everything.
$900 might be better forgotten if they’re not going to budge on the price since there are repairs that have to be made.
Understood. And I’m really starting to strongly consider abandoning ship just to be done with this freaking saga. It’s been rough.
It’s convincing my wife to jump overboard with me that could be a challenge.
Ah, is it because she loves the house, because she doesn’t want to lose money, or that she is tired of the process?
I’m going to go with “D” – all of the above.
(A)It’s never wise to fall in love with a house because, guaranteed, the house will not love you back. It will all apart. It will reveal that the builders took little care in making it. You will replace things not because you want to but because you have to. And you will find out that your house seems like a wormhole for spiders. Those evil fuckers are everywhere.
(B)That $900 is a short term pain, the longer one will happen when you realise that you’re paying the price they want, they choose when they’re leaving, and you’re out far more money for a house that will become a PITA in short order.
(C)This is just the beginning. There are better houses out there with better people selling them. Knowing when you can have your home is a big deal. These jerks are not worth dealing with. You can find better.
And you will find out that your house seems like a wormhole for spiders. Those evil fuckers are everywhere
My room was in the basement for 12 years. To this I say, your point? Hahaha
Long ago, like last month I think, we declared Tuesday nights to be Cliché Don’t diisappoint me
Don’t you worry. Cliche/quote night will be a good time.
Mornin all! i feel like ranting about the game but i just don’t have the energy. Whats on tap?
Morning all. Yay for ending up on your kitchen floor with intense back pain. Fortunately a zillion times better today because stupid long days today and tomorrow.
Yuck, no good. Glad it’s better.
Thanks all. In related news, I need to sweep my kitchen floor.
I had to read the second half of that several times before I understood ‘fortunately’. I can brain, I swear.
Glad you’re feeling better. I’ve had the ‘need to lay on the floor in agony’ back pain before. It blows
Oh, I missed the good partas well! hahaha
nooooooooooooo bueno, sorry pal
Recap’s up. I can’t use Getty embed at work – it’s not blocked, but the embed codes never come up for me. Can someone please put an image up?
Bruins at Fancy Cats Recap: We Hate Leads
So courtesy of UNC bringing up Good Charlotte last night in the period 1b thread, I now have the theme song from Undergrads stuck in my head.
@this is going so well@
Wow. Glad I missed that!
Must resist getting Good Charlotte stuck in my head. Must resist.
That’s easy for me to do. They’re horrible
This is true. However, there are two points: 1) my mind doesn’t discriminate between good and bad when deciding to lodge a tune up there and 2) my 8th grade self begs to disagree.
I’m grateful my music choices have improved.
I remember Good Charlotte as the band that appeared in Rancid’s music video for “Fall Back Down.”
I am so tired of Led Zeppelin.
Every band has their good and bad. You have to fill the albums and you have to do x amount of them. Sometimes “acceptable” is enough. I don’t listen to commercial radio much, so i don’t get burned out on many bands. I just started listening to a little LZ and the Who again. Plant’s thing with Allison Krause isn’t hard to listen to either.
How is this a thing?!
It happens to a lot of musicians who play in bars. We hear them way too much. The magic fades away and you say to yourself, “The Who is better.”
“The Who is better.”
I don’t think I can sign on to this thinking. That said, Eminence Front may be one of my favorite songs. Dat keyboard intro tho.
The Who had better concepts in their songs. Townsend wrote from a very spiritual place and I like that about his music. LZ were the masters of groove and the studio. They were amazing musicians. However, I find their music to be generally over the top. They also stole a lot of songs.
And Who’s Next is the best rock album of all time.
I think my issue with The Who is that when they fall flat, they fall flat HARD. Very boom or bust in my book, without a lot in between
Their first three albums have some great, great songs, but they also have a lot of the fluffy pop stuff British pop producers so loved. “My Generation” “Happy Jack” “Magic Bus” and more are there. Tommy, Who’s Next and Quadrophenia are AMAZING. Their last four albums are disappointments, although I still like Who by the Numbers.
LZ are just so hollow for me. Here is a really groovy riff and a guy making up words. That’s a hyperbolic statement, but hopefully you all get my point.
I get it. I think it depends on what you look for. I’m a music guy, but I focus more on the instrumentation than the lyrics themselves usually. And so I’m going to find songs with good lyrics but boring music bad. But someone else will love it. See Dylan, Bob.
I focus on the emotion and spiritual conviction. Lyrics and instrumentation both create that.
LZ has just become stale to me.
Just to be clear, I’m not defending Zeppelin. Just continuing the conversation because it’s interesting to me. We’re all entitled to our opinions, especially on music.
For example, an unpopular opinion in many circles is my dislike of Springsteen’s music. Fight me.
Fight you? No. I’m going to kill you!
But one can argue he panders to his audience. He still writes songs about working on a dream. I am pretty sure Bruce has achieved more than most families will in a millennium.
I, as a dreamer, love his music. He’s in my top three!
This is why I like his stuff from before “Born in the USA”, but don’t particularly care for his material from then on.
Bob Dylan is so tricky. Great songwriter, so hard to want to listen to. I like covers of his work far more than his performances.
I get you though- much of the time I’m not listening for lyrics.
I do. Its no secret that Robert Plant is the weak link in Zep. The rest of the band (and I would argue, especially Jones and Bonham) deserved better
JONES JONES JONES JONES
I gotta agree here. The songs I love from them are fantastic, but there’s a lot of “meh” there, too.
That said, I see where Bagel’s coming from, too.
Yeah, I have to agree. I want to like them more than I do.
I have Pink Floyd’s “Us & Them” stuck in my head.
Someone made a draft simulator but it sucks ’cause I tried it once and the Habs won the #1 pick:
25 runs: Flames & Jackets with 5 wins each. Fun fact. Toronto won twice but got 2nd overall eight times. Trolol
Pulujarvi or Laine is not a bad consolation prize
The Jets are friggin killing it every time I run it. They’ve landed the top spot a number of times in my runs.
Yeah, lets not run that too many times lest it become true
