I was also a huge fan of the theme song for “The Shield.”

I can’t even with all the feels I’m having.
The last book I finished was Double Down: Game Change 2012 but now I’m quickly binging on all the Divergent books.
Ha. I should’ve read the sub headline. If we’re talking about something after the dreaded “m-word” it’d have to be panties. Gross.
MOIST. I get chills just typing it.
That is certainly not a bad thing.
DC DC DC DC DC!!! We have a whole day every year celebrating people with the DC flag tattoo!
I was geeking out over the thoughts of a two hour premiere tonight, but alas, according to NBC.com, it is only on for an hour. http://www.nbc.com/
Oh I know! But why would you post the throwaway rounds on the Internet? There are some phenomenally hilarious ones floating around there. These aren’t them.
WEAK SAUCE!!! What is this, amateur hour?? These people need to get their minds further into the gutter.
Pretty sure Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are the creators and not Josh Radnor.
So, full disclosure, I don’t have photographic evidence of the drunkest I’ve ever been (thank god), but this is pretty close. This was my 21st birthday and the first time I ever really drank. I’m on the right and apparently this took place after I puked and yelled from the bathroom, “I just puked purple…there’s an alien coming out of my belly!” I’m one classy lady…
Just a note, the cub that died last year died after six days, not six weeks. It was a heartbreaking time here in DC.
I had two: First one: jmoosie2004
My nickname has always been Moose/Moosie and 2004 was the year I graduated high school…though I’m not sure why that was so significant when I made that as a 10-year-old, and then still kept the same name well into college. Second: DukeChick34
I was a Duke fan and 34 was Mike Dunleavy Jr.’s number, who was my favorite player. This screen name was my “secret” one that I used to use to stalk my crushes.
I was so disappointed as well.
Welp, this hit a little too close to home.
Elaine Benes. Without question. We’re both snarky/smart ass women who can’t dance to save their soul. She is my spirit animal.
So hot. Want to touch the hiney.
Well, this has solidified what I’m doing this weekend…
Tacos. All the tacos.
I cannot love this enough.
Thanks for the kind words! I’m kind of hoping the fails are more to the content (as in the NCGA is a big old bag of fail) rather than the list itself. But either way, oh well, it needed to be put out there!
Oh absolutely. There were definitely more things I could have included. This list of 11 was depressing enough.
You present opinions, like thinking McCrory and his cabinet are doing a good job. Also, to go along with that I’m confused why it is acceptable and warranted to not give teachers a raise because we’re in a recession, but completely OK to give McCrory’s cabinet hefty raises. Does being in a recession not apply to them. As I said, I no longer live in NC but in a large city, so obviously things are different. That being said, being in a city where a third of the people don’t own cars, and with only one DMV for over 600,000 residents, I definitely know people who don’t have government issued IDs. Especially young people, the elderly and those who are poor. In NC, many counties, especially more rural ones have one DMV for the entire place that is only open during business hours Monday through Friday. I would imagine it is a hardship for some to get there during those hours, especially if you don’t already have a licenses. Kind of a Catch-22. Also, I’m certainly not backward, and never said folks in NC were. Again, as I stated before my issue isn’t just with the photo ID, that is only a small part of why the voter ID bill is harmful to voting in the state.
I actually have left, so that doesn’t apply to me. Doesn’t make me any less sad about what’s happening in my home state. 1. You don’t need to engage in ad hominem attacks. As someone who is more left leaning, I certainly feel that I have a strong moral compass. 2. I’m not sure why “procedure” is in quotes, as if it is some mythical thing that doesn’t actually happen. That being said, this law has the potential to close all but one clinic in the state, which would restrict the procedure. 3. Not everyone has a bank account, is on welfare, is on social security, smokes or drinks. You also don’t necessarily need an ID to be a renter. You’re disenfranchised because you’re making people go to a DMV, which they may not be able to do to get an ID. Also, as I pointed out, this is not just about voter ID and it is naive to think so. They’re limiting voting. 4. You have your facts wrong, and I’ve been living in the real world for 27 years, so thanks for finally welcoming me! Teachers aren’t asking to receive tuition to get their Masters. They come out of pocket for that. What is changing is the pay increase they get to reflect their higher education level. 5. I actually have talked to law enforcement officials who disagree with drug testing welfare recipients. So unless they’re lying to me and you’ve talked to all the ones in the state, you’re incorrect. 6. No, it isn’t. The second amendment allows you to own a gun. I don’t want guns in bars where people consume copious amounts of alcohol and potentially make poor decisions. 7. Yes, because there’s so much racism against whites. It was also just not for black defendants, but for anyone who thought race was a factor in their trial. 8. Is that an offer? Because I know some unemployed people who have been looking for any kind of job for months and would love some help. So, since you seem to have all the answers please help! 9. There are already federal laws concerning Sharia Law. This law is unnecessary and has consequences for other religions as well. I thought Conservatives were all about religious freedom? Oh, that’s right it only applies in regards to Christianity. 10. Suuuuuuure. 11. Not misguided. Not uninformed. No need for ad hominem attacks. I live out of the state, so have seen first hand how others not in NC are viewing the state, and it’s not good. And no the majority of people don’t hold whatever values you hold. In fact many Republicans in North Carolina don’t either, according to recent polling.
I’m definitely biased. I’m not going to deny that fact. However, even with my obvious tilt, everything I present here is factual. Whether you choose to be upset by it or happy by it, is up to you and your own biases. But I’m happy to address your concerns. 1. You missed my point. These people are being arrested peacefully and may very well be acquitted. The point was we’ve had almost 1,000 people arrested and tens of thousands who have participated in these protests. While it has been beautiful to see those take a stand on issues they feel badly about, it’s been sad that such a thing needed to happen at all. It shows the displeasure with what happened this session. 2. Yes, abortion is still legal in North Carolina. However, these new restrictions could potentially close all but one clinic in the state, which would be a clinic in Asheville. I’m not sure how a woman in Fayetteville or Jacksonville would be able to go to that clinic. This was a move championed by Right to Life groups, because it makes abortion harder in the state. This is compounded by the fact that Gov. McCrory said he would sign no new abortion restrictions into law while he was campaigning. He signed this legislation, making him a flat out liar. 3. I personally have a bank account, though I’m not sure why that matters. I do hope you realize that there are definitely people who do not have bank accounts. A bank account isn’t a requirement to be a citizen of this country. With new ways to manage your money (like prepaid cards and online banking) you don’t necessarily need an ID to bank. Also, this is not just about needing a government ID to vote (but the lack of allowing city and county employee IDs and student IDs is sad). It’s about cutting back early voting, eliminating same day registration, eliminating pre voting registration, etc. You are naive to think this legislation is just about voter ID. I bet there are people out there who are in support of voter ID legislation, but have serious issues with other things found in this bill. 4. I’m glad we can agree that the cuts to the education community are devastating. 5. The problem with drug testing welfare recipients (other than assuming they’re criminals by not making others on government assistance go through testing) is it costs money. There is no cost benefit, and it can only hurt people. Also, not everyone is drug tested for work. I’ve never had to submit to a drug test during my professional career. 6. I wouldn’t try to commit a crime regardless of whether I knew someone had a gun or not, so you’re asking the wrong person. However, if you really want to commit a crime, I don’t think someone having a weapon would stop you (let’s not forget that there were armed security officers at Columbine High School when that happened). You talk about having a gun in your car, well what if someone broke into it and used that gun to shoot up a school? There are too many variables that could go really badly. Especially when we’re talking about allowing guns in bars. I’m sorry, but when alcohol is in the mix, things can escalate quickly and I don’t think we need to add guns to that. 7. That’s fair. 8. Not everyone has the luxury of having 4 or 5 different part time jobs when they’re unemployed. As someone who has been unemployed before (though I did not receive benefits) I would have taken ANY job I could have found, but there was nothing for me. 99.9 percent of those who are longterm unemployed want to work, they just can’t find anything. To cut their benefits by 30 percent hurts them and their families as they’re trying to get back on their feet. 9. Well, NC did try to establish a state religion back in March, even though that’s unconstitutional, and has a constitutional requirement that you have to believe in God to run for office, something that is also unconstitutional. So constitutionality hasn’t stopped them before. The anti-Sharia law thing is just unnecessary as there are already federal laws that do this. However, the wording of the NC law could have implications on other religious practices, like an orthodox Jewish divorce, which I mentioned initially. 10. It is despicable and not surprising, but just because the the federal government is doing it, doesn’t mean the state government has to. 11. North Carolina is definitely more of a laughing stock. Trust me. I actually don’t live in North Carolina any more, and am always stopped by friends from other states who are appalled with what is happening in my own state. It is also insulting to suggest someone should move because they don’t like what’s going on. You mention you don’t like the education issues and the increase in salary to McCrory’s cabinet. Should you move?
Ricochet vs. Shingo - Dragon Gate’s King of Gate 2013 Finals. リコシェ対吾 - フ …I don’t even know.
Actually, “Planes” is not a Pixar movie, but a Disney one, which is kind of confusing since Pixar is owned by Disney, but Pixar is not producing it. Instead it’s being done by DisneyToon studios.
WHY AREN’T ALL OF THESE ACTUAL COMMERCIALS RIGHT THIS SECOND?!
I have read The Climb! It was interesting to get that perspective and obviously still is a compelling story. I didn’t find the writing and story telling to be as engaging as Krakauer’s though.
Seriously! And not only lived but managed to come out pretty much unscathed. It’s incredible. Anything Krakauer does is gold, I just reread “Where Men Win Glory” as well.
Right?! Does my love of it make me a masochist? Because it still gives me a weird claustrophobic feeling every time I read it.
I first read this when it was published in 1997 and have basically read it at least once every year since. Jon Krakauer is the reason why I forged a love of traveling, climbing, and writing. It doesn’t matter how many times I read “Into Thin Air” I still get goosebumps.
Not much has changed…
Whoa. Be careful not libel yourself. “Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra Appears At Press Conference While Very High On Illegal Street Drugs” While he’s definitely acting weird, I don’t think we know for a fact he’s very high on illegal street drugs.
Ha. Yep. Sounds about right. I’m banned from posting or sharing anything on his page.
I’m not understanding why you felt like you needed to apologize. Honestly, I kind of wish you had made it after the Red Wedding episode. Because who cares! Oh well, don’t let the haters get you down, it was hilarious, and people should try to not get so worked up about a TV show.
