This is a topic relevant to my interests.

 

Weeds or flowers?

Change can be good.

 

What would make you happy today?

  1. I’ll be happy if the new Captain ‘Merica movie doesn’t suck.

  2. I quit movies 16 years ago.

    The Waterboy was the end of the road for me.

  3. I have a coupon.

  4. I got a parking ticket in Nashville for parking in a handicapped zone. It is a dead-end street next to an abandoned warehouse, there is one sign on a telephone pole mounted parallel to the street at about 8′, and the curbs and spaces are not painted. Total fucking bullshit trap.

    I’m toying with the idea of hiring Jazz to fight it for me. It’s a 95 dollar ticket.

    I was in a rental car, but after talking with Enterprise I’m convinced they would totally nark me out.

  5. There was free parking on the street above, but I have to go through a round-about from hell to get there and those don’t make me happy.

    I’ll be happy if I never have to go to that job site again.

  6. Morning whiny children.

  7. I’m not sure if I have time to cook and eat breakfast before Mass. Also I somehow gained 2.6# in the last 24 hours.

    And I haven’t been happy in well over a decade.

  8. I’m pretty happy. I guess I’ll just keep doing what I’m doing. If I can run 5 miles today I’ll be super happy.

  9. And I haven’t been happy in well over a decade.

    I’m faking it. I’ve got 4 decades of being unhappy to make up for.

    What made you happy 15 years ago? Cake?

  10. What made you happy 15 years ago? Cake?

    Having a potentially good life ahead of me.

  11. I’m sure there were other things, but that’s what sticks out. The list of things to which I look forward has dwindled considerably.

  12. Happy is a choice. I don’t choose it every day, but I’m getting better about it.

  13. Besides “My Pretty Pony”, is there any animated series, video game or sci-fi that you are interested in, Leon? I might have something for you to look forward to on BBF. World of Warcraft or Skyrim?

  14. Local news just spelled “berated” as “berraded”.

    Spelling is a scam.

  15. I enjoyed Skyrim, so I am a little bit looking forward to Elder Scrolls 6 whenever they get around to it. Which of course means buying a ps4. Bleh.

  16. And so much of sci-fi has become PC pop culture trash that I’ve got nothing there. Can’t stand much of what’s on SyFy these days in any event.

  17. I’m probably just not getting enough sun.

  18. I’ve never understood that “happiness is a choice” stuff. You can try to be upbeat, I guess. I’m cursed with seeing things as thet are, no real illusions…………..

  19. Counting your blessings is a surprisingly important enterprise. I don’t think you gents are doing an accurate tally all the good things in your lives, but it’s none of my business. You go ahead and be unhappy if it makes you happy. Douchebags.

    OK. That was a good thing to get off my chest.

    Now, Obamajob.

    I’ll be back to insult your manhoods later this evening.

  20. I’ll be back to insult your manhoods later this evening.

    You realize that there are men willing to pay you for this? Probably better than the Obamajob.

  21. I sort of assume that my unhappiness is the result of awareness combined with inability to effect change. I could drop it, ignore it, etc., but it seems like the right thing to do is hold onto it in the hopes that I’ll see an opportunity to alter fate.

  22. Oops

  23. We got an add running on a major radio station for a product that is echo friendly.

  24. What the fuck is wrong with these people?

  25. Ad.

  26. You may now all refer to me as a trans-spic.

    I’m a Messican at heart, and self-identify as one. Haters.

  27. Eco?

  28. Green Duck Quacks.

  29. Nice poat. But if you’d included that Pharrell “Happy” song, I’d have felt like strangling the cute little puppy.

  30. Andy! I don’t across you much anymore. Howdy

  31. ‘Sup, Tushie? How are the anchor babies?

  32. They are doing great, Andy. How is your little dude and your daughter?

  33. BTW, Andy, that sherriff Brother in Law in Breaking Bad always reminds me of you.

  34. Sherrif, DEA…. Something…

  35. Cheer up Leon, I’ll have a special selection for you on Friday.

  36. Happy good morning.

  37. ScarJo gifs make me happy.

    Good morning.

  38. happy

  39. They’re good. Growing up too fast, though.

  40. http://mcnorman.wordpress.com/2014/04/01/prolonging-the-agony-or-averting-disaster/

    tl/dr version: ICD-10 delayed for one year with several humorous examples.

  41. Any delay in ICD-10 is a win. What a cluster.

  42. Just saw that Jimmy Kimmel Putin skit with Sarah Palin. He may not be the typical super-douchy partisan liberal asshole we all were expecting him to be.

  43. Seriously? How did they come up with the nes ICD-10 codes? By watching the three stooges?

  44. There’s a poll in the last poat: when to have the Phoenix Meatup. Go vote now if you haven’t already. Do it.

  45. Three Stooges on crack with LSD and a few gianormous bong hits chased with Absinthe.

  46. Just saw that Jimmy Kimmel Putin skit with Sarah Palin. He may not be the typical super-douchy partisan liberal asshole we all were expecting him to be.

    Not buying it. Not sure how that skit came about, but I don’t buy any sort of sincerity there at all. I suspect that his sense of opportunism for laughs may have gotten the best of him, but I don’t in any way he’s not a flaming-pants liberal douche.

  47. I bet Kimmel and Carolla couldn’t even get The Man Show on anymore

    It’s gotten that bad that fast

  48. I’ve learned that I have to seek and discover happiness.

    It doesn’t just arrive on my doorstep. When I think about the big picture, I get depressed.

    So, I’ll be happy about my garden, or my dog being funny. Or Erin playing soccer.

    I don’t know if I’ll be around for Lauraw’s manhood insulting. I hope so.

  49. ^something to be happy about.

    And friends. ;)

    *wipes tear

  50. Right this moment, I’m not thinking about how work is killing me slowly by a 1000 insults …

    no, the new Chevelle album makes me happy. As does crackfat.

  51. Plus, feeding the birds, and watching them makes me happy.

  52. Jimmy Kimmel or Jimmy Fallon?

    I guess all jimmies kinda do look alike.

  53. Jazz, I am not claiming that he ain’t liberal to the core. He is. But like Leno, he recognizes that you don’t become successful by pissing off half the country. I think he will be successful, just because of this. Others will continue to prefer ideology over success.

  54. Oh, did I say Kimmel? I meant fallon.

  55. Jazz send me a great book on happiness a few years back. It was a great read. Gross National Happiness. The authors has also written many related articles (for WSJ).

  56. What happens when a strong wind blows through network comedy studios? Jimmys get rustled.

  57. Anyone else getting an ugly login screen when they go to breitbart?

  58. Comment by Jimbro on April 6, 2014 10:02 am

    happy

  59. Got one too, Tushar.

  60. Go to some page other than main page, and then you can navigate.

    E.g. Go here

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-government

  61. You can’t tell me what to do!

  62. I got a 404.

  63. HACKED?

  64. Why you don’t see a lot of video bombs from India.

    http://awegif.com/gif/6642

  65. I got into big government and then went to the main page by clicking on the logo and was DENIED ENTRY!!!! (log in screen)

    Do you know who I am?!!!!11!!

  66. I can get to one of the subsites thru google, but homepage is a flat denial.

  67. Pffft. I didn’t want to go there anyway.

  68. Jimbro, that video is from Pakistan.

  69. Worky worky

  70. http://awegif.com/gif/6635

  71. Confusing Pakistan with India does not make me happy

  72. Andy may like this link for the gun thread unless he’s used it before

  74. >> Oh, did I say Kimmel? I meant fallon.

    This is funny when you hear it in Tushar’s voice.

  75. Years ago I saw a segment on Oprah (yeah, I know) where one of her guests suggested something that can make a difference in people’s happiness.

    Every day, find 5 things that you are grateful for and/or which made you happy that day. Each day you have to find 5 NEW things (you can still be grateful/happy for things you listed on previous days).

    It doesn’t have to be anything big (and some days it will be hard to find ANYTHING to be happy/grateful about).

    I found that for me personally it made a huge difference in how I felt about things in general, because instead of looking for things to bitch about I was looking for something to add to my “list” for that day.

    It was quite enlightening.

  76. I’m sure that happens in India all of the time.

    Oh, did I say Ravacoknonacar? I meant Nasaheempapetalan.

  77. I am so envious of these kids

    http://awegif.com/gif/6624

  78. I can’t say whether I’m happy or smug. Somebody at worked asked why I’m always smiling. Some time later, somebody accused me of having a perma-smirk.

  79. Everyone has things to be happy and sad about. Some people look for the one happy thing among the pile of sad and embrace it. Some people look for that one sad in a pile of happy and go for it. Be the first sort.

  80. Hotspur?

    http://awegif.com/gif/3494

  81. Chief?

  82. Jewstin?

  83. Hotspur?

    I wonder if that was a rusty trombone? I mean, it WAS a sex shop and all….

  84. Why would the Salvation Army play a sex shop celebration?

  85. I’m happy that Nessie the Wonder Dog has learned to come when I call…she jumped up on the fence and popped the gate open and was halfway to the bicyclists on the sidewalk out front before I called her and she stopped and came back. Good girl.

    Somebody is probably going to need some new bicycle shorts.

  86. Muslim parent upset over school flyer promoting church’s Easter egg hunt

    http://www.freep.com/article/20140404/NEWS05/304040016/Muslim-parents-upset-over-flier-promoting-Easter-egg-hunt-at-church

    I know this guy in the picture. We went to law school together. I still consider him a friend, although I haven’t talked to him since we graduated. He’s been a shit disturber since then, though. He’s pretty much being a dick about this. There’s nothing religious about rabbits and eggs. If there were invitations to a community goat-stoning at his mosque, he wouldn’t object. He’s just being a petty bitch.

  87. Somebody is probably going to need some new bicycle shorts.

    Tom Hill III, for sure.

  88. What the Tom Hill happened here? Looks like I kilt the thread with Tom Hill III

  89. Everybody is off being happy………………

  90. I was busy making myself “happy” with those ScarJo gifs.

  91. I was busy making myself “happy” with those ScarJo gifs.

    Huh. I thought you liked mustachioed fellows in tanks.

  92. Happy birthday, Xbrad.

  93. That muslim guy is pissed about the Easter egg hunt because his kids probably want to go.

  94. That muslim guy is pissed about the Easter egg hunt because his kids probably want to go.

    Ding ding ding!!!

  95. Easter eggs are a scam. Everyone knows the Easter Bunny doesn’t lay eggs. He has Amazon ship them in.

  96. who’s nekkid? *not you Tushar, Jazz or Jimbro*

  97. I’m wearing shorts, that’s as close to nekkid as you could want.

  98. I’m wearing pasties.

  99. Wearing a fuxedo isn’t being nekkid.

  100. goddammit

  101. >>who’s nekkid? *not you Tushar, Jazz or Jimbro*

    That is discriminatory profiling of lawyers, doctors and brown people.

  102. Festive codpiece.

  103. Dave?

  104. Is there such a thing an a codpiece which isn’t festive?

  105. I saw Henry VIII’s battle armor in the Tower of London, including the codpiece. He was a lyin sonofabitch

  106. That’s like assless chaps.

  108. If you could take one modern weapon system through a time machine into a medieval battle, what would you choose?

    Assume that you have all support structure. E.g., if it is a plane, you have landing strips, fuel, ammo and service crew.

  109. Is there such a thing an a codpiece which isn’t festive?

  110. Shit is getting out of hand

  111. >> If you could take one modern weapon system through a time machine into a medieval battle, what would you choose?

    Artillery. The most devastating weapon on the battlefield ever.

  112. >> If you could take one modern weapon system through a time machine into a medieval battle, what would you choose?

    Your mom. The most devastating weapon on any battlefield ever.

  113. Dave, the choice has to be between artillery, heavy machine guns, battle tanks and A-10. I would choose A-10. Artillery raining from the skies.

    Also, Dave, your proclivity for ending into water concerns me.

  114. tacklehugs Cyn. The most devastating weapon on any battlefield ever.

  115. Also, Dave, your proclivity for ending into water concerns me.

    MOOOOOM! Tushar is linking meatup video footage of Dave again!!!

  116. Davehugs are indeed pure devastation on the battlefield. Then again, so are Tushar’s. Rawr.

  117. Tushar, think of the A-10 as a tornado, and artillery as a hurricane. A-10? Focused on the spot hell. Artillery? Widespread death with metal.

    It simply does more over a wider field of death. Although I would consider the AC-130

  118. I could have done without seeing Dave in a thong. I blame Tushar for the 5 state killing spree.

  119. It’s emerald green. You like?

  120. Bcoch, thankfully, the 5state killing spree will bring you only upto Virginia. I still have MD as a buffer.

  121. Dave’s cutting grass today?

  122. Just wait until he starts mowing, Brent; it’s… it’s his uniform.

  123. I didn’t say they were continuous.

  124. Dave, you are not counting the psychological impact of a massive iron bird destroying you from above. Also, yeah, I totally forgot about the 130.

  125. >>>Just wait until he starts mowing, Brent; it’s… it’s his uniform.

    That’s gotta hurt property values.

  126. >> Dave, you are not counting the psychological impact of a massive iron bird destroying you from above. Also, yeah, I totally forgot about the 130.

    Dude.. it’s a mile wide killing field.. you have to see it.

    Too early to mow, late winter hanging on although the St. Augustine is greening.. I think. Also.. the cops always show up when I mow in this outfit.

  127. If you could take one modern weapon system through a time machine into a medieval battle, what would you choose?

  128. Should I watch Lone Survivor?

  129. That’s a pron, right?

  130. I’d have to give serious consideration to an Iowa class battleship.

  131. A giant electromagnet.

  132. You should pay to see Lone Survivor, MJ.

  133. Should I watch Lone Survivor?

    Best movie you’ll see in forever.

  134. Back from Obama job .

  135. Am I the only one who finds Dana Loesch to be a loudmouth? Gawd, she’s tedious. I appreciate what she does, I guess, but I don’t want any part of it. Michelle Malkin, too. They’re harpy-ish, IMO. And that Twitchy site has some decent stuff from time to time, but, man, they over-hype a lot of the shit they feature.

  136. I’d add Rush to that list, too, and Sean Hannity, too. Now, they all have good ideas, but they’re just tedious, tedious listens.

  137. >> I’d have to give serious consideration to an Iowa class battleship.

    also, arty

    SEE DANA LOESCH’S TWEET THAT DEVESTATES THE WHITE HOUSE’S ARGUMENTS!!!!!!!!

  139. Filed under: Narcotourism

    Guy: Hey, let me ask you. I’m from Florida, and the truck broke down here. Where the folks hang out?

    Me: Uh. . . The Nest is just down the street.

    Guy: Yeah. I was in there; I looked like I belong somewhere else. You people don’t smoke weed up here?

    Me: Sure. I don’t, but I know it’s around.

    Guy: Yeah. Tell me where them folks at. I need to relax.

    Me: Uh. . . MLK Park might be your best bet. It’s just a few blocks over there. I know creepy people hang out there.

    Guy: Thanks. You’re a good guy. Imma go there.

  140. Jazz, the purpose of twitchy is not to appeal to you. It is to screw with liberal shitheads. And it does that very effectively.

    Me? I don’t need to read anyone except Ace, Insty, Jonah and Krauthammer. And I don’t need to watch anyone except Megyn Kelly. I suppose if I listen to her, she may have good points, but I like just watching her.

  141. And I don’t need to watch anyone except Megyn Kelly.
    ——————–
    She’s so naturally good at what she does that it’s fun to watch.

    Not surprisingly, my dad loves the show. For the content.

  142. I used to watch O’Reilly regularly years ago. Now I can’t change the channel fast enough when he’s on. The Five is interesting and fun to watch. Red Eye is too late for me.

  143. I watch The Five and Special Report as often as I can. Otherwise my news is from the interweb tubes.

  144. I am kicking ass today. I did my Obamajob, dishes, laundry, packed a giant painting and I am almost done with my brackets.

  145. Greetings, assorted whackjobs. Did any of youse see the Gutfeld-Perino thing on CSPAN2 yesterday?

  146. Sean, watching it now. We need more people like Gutfeld.

  147. Wait until she asks him about reading recommendations.

  148. Hotels have Fox, so I’ve been trying to catch Special Report if I make it back in time.

    I watched a bit of Greta and thought it sucked. I watched O’Reilly and thought he was kind acting like a retard about electric cars. Electric cars are not a national security issue.

    Megan’s smart/hot. And I don’t really like blondes.

  149. I found Mare

    But Putin is a bad guy, so he’s just lookin’ out for the folks. The folks who have $69,000 to $94,000 to spend on a Tesla.

    Exactly. They’re expensive, have low range, but are fast. That solves 1/3rd of what an internal combustion engine does today.

    See you in 11tybillion years.

  152. It’s a neat toy for rich people. Not much else.

  153. Weren’t Tesla cars the ones that were bursting into flames?

  154. Jewstin, yep, pretty sure it was them.

    Plus, charging stations! How can you just jump into your electric car and have the freedom to go anywhere you want? You can’t.

  155. And they are fueled by coal. (Which is good for my family), but ooo, icky thing the smug set will just gloss over.

  156. Didn’t suck. Could have used The Hulk or Iron Man, but not a total suck-fest. Redford looked awful. I mean real bad.

  157. What set of geniuses came up with the name ‘Fisker’. I just picture Jazz’s avatar every time I hear that.

  158. Found a link for live ESPN! Woo hoo!

    I did my first long run today. 55 degrees on an amazing wooded trail.

    There’s some hippy shit outside of the city.

  165. I’m not wrong here.

    Not at all wrong.

  166. I totally expected Peter to draw Dickbutt.

    She kind of reminds me of Cynthia Watros.

  168. I’m not going to attempt a longer run for at least a month.

  169. I’m not going to attempt a longer run for at least ever.

  170. Peter is an Indian elephant. He is comfortable with technology. And chooses nice music.

    African elephants listen to nothing but hip hop and rap.

  171. Whoa! The first reading recommendation from Gutfeld is King Moron.

  172. The elephants from Georgia like country music.

  173. Asian elephants don’t draw as well due to poor eyesight.

  174. Can’t drive worth a damn either.

  175. Asian elephants produce excellent technical drawings.

  176. “Yes, they broke the law, but it’s not a felony. it’s kind of — it’s a — it’s an act of love. ”

    Well, at least we don’t have to worry about Jeb Bush.

    She can stroke my trunk anytime she wants.

  178. I shot an elephant in my pajamas

  179. Just to see him die

  180. Realization that I’m too old to watch a hockey game after 9 innings of baseball and a hike around LoDo. Union Station expansion was supposed to be complete in February.

  181. Nice to see both Oso and Alex made bail.

  182. She can stroke my trunk anytime she wants.

    Hawt.

  183. Pupster,

    No bail. There were no cameras and all the witnesses were too traumatized to give a coherent statement.

  184. Just saved my stupid dog’s life again. For some reason.

    Bubba: *chew chew chew on rawhide*

    Bubba: *GULP. Oh no…

    Bubba; *choke, HURKA, HWAARK, emit foam, choke, stumble around into next room*

    Laura: *follows, traps Bubba between knees, hears tiny wheezes and figures out what is going on, shoves hand down his throat*

    Bubba: *fights her*

    Laura: *after several tries-and-slip-aways, finally gets a grip on the edge of the rawhide in his windpipe, and pulls it out*

    Bubba: Thanks! Wow I feel better. Hey, I want that back.

  185. That is so scary, Lauraw. Darn dumb doggies.

  186. Did anybody look at anybody else and just mutter “Really?” today?

  187. ha ha

    Today and everyday.

  188. Gah, especially at my dog… whatever he’s eating is NOT coming out roses on the other end. Sheesh.

  189. I don’t think Riley has ever choked on anything like that. Yet.

    *knocks on wood*

  190. http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2014/04/06/what-does-the-national-oceanic-and-atmospheric-administration-need-with-96-armed-agents/

    More proof that Libertarianism isn’t a serious political philosophy.

  191. Screw you Stanford!

  192. Run away with me, scott.

  193. Sean, if it hasn’t happened yet, I wouldn’t worry about it. Our girl dog never did that. Neither did our old Lab.

    This particular dog is special.

    It is a rushed eating trait. Bubba has done this before with marginal-size rawhides. He doesn’t take the time to get them really soft enough to go down the pipe, but he thinks they’re small enough and tries anyway, and fails.

    I threw away the rest of the bag of wrong-size rawhides and I’m going to switch him back to whole raw beef bones next week. Make him remember how to gnaw and work again.

  194. Lunch menus for Obama’s kids

    https://www.sidwell.edu/mobile/index.aspx?v=c&mid=375&t=Lunch+Menus

  195. It is a rushed eating trait.

    That’s the interesting thing–Riley will practically inhale his food, but he gnaws really methodically on his chew toys. We stopped giving him lima beans in his food–not because he was choking on them or anything, but they were coming out more or less whole on the other end (POOP BLOG!!!) and thus not really providing any nutritional benefit.

  196. Thank heavens there is arugula.

  197. Very interesting, Pepe. I’ve downloaded the pdf menu.

  198. 10-0 run for UConn. I hope they make Condi Rice Cry.

  199. >> Whoa! The first reading recommendation from Gutfeld is King Moron.

    Pretty cool, huh?

  200. Is the Ewok waiting for a clip to become available or something, Andy?

  201. What? To put it on the blog? Nah, he ain’t gonna do that.

    Y’all will like our podcast guest this week though …

  202. I frequent the mothership several times a day, but I rarely bother with the comments anymore. Taint fun like ‘tused to be.

  203. Actually, all of April is booked and it’s f’n awesome.

  204. No comment, Jazz.

    (no pun intended)

  205. John Pinnette died.

  206. Y’all will like our podcast guest this week though …

    Is it…Tom Hill??!!!

  207. I thought teenagers were supposed to be all rebellious and shit with their music. My son left this in the car player (on 11).

    It’s my CD.

  208. I wouldn’t expect you to, Andy. ;-) The tone changed – inevitable as readership expanded. It is what it is. I’m happy here, and some of you cobs hang out here, so if I feel the need to get feedback out, I’ve get a better avenue of communication here, anyway. And I don’t have to deal with … stuff.

  209. Are we crying about HQ comments again?

  210. Lamenting, B Cock. Lamenting.

  211. Ahhhhh….old person crying.

    ;-)

  216. John Pinette made me realize fat people are funny.

  217. RIP, John. You made the world brighter for having lived here.

  218. UConn girls are going to the finals.

  228. Damn scary click. MMM already?

  229. here’s my question:

    How does Mozilla make money from people using heir free browser?

  230. I’m hanging in there, thank you for asking.

  231. I’m so glad they got rid of that qualified heterosexual white male.

  232. Well my outer space mining weekend is over
    Back to the oil patch

  233. She’s got a B.A. in Asian studies and JD in law. Salary 500k for her ‘various’ roles at Mozilla in ’07.
    Seems shes got a greater role than those who actually think smarter thoughts.

  234. I’m hanging in there, thank you for asking.

    I care.

    Tonight, some little girl cries because her Raggedy Ann donated its hair to Winny, and lodges of beavers covet Winny’s teeth.

  237. Mitchell!

  238. Wiserbud,

    They have agreements with Google. IIRC, everytime you type something into the address bar it searches via Google.

  239. and another week from hell begins.

    nite, y’all

    Srsly.

    That’s not a girl, that’s a geek guy with a gender-identity disorder.

  241. That’s a really sexy cut Winny’s got there. Very becoming. It accents her natural beauty.

  242. She’s a real female. She’s married with one kid.

  243. I made my 5,000 step goal every day this past week. I choose to be happy about that and ignore the asshole (not Mr. RFH, he knows better) who said why not 6,000? Because just doing that means 35 points for the health insurance, and on a bad day, I don’t even break 1,000.

    (((squishy hugs back)))

  244. She may have been a female once.

  245. >> Btw, GOTW was kick ass.

    Thanks. Mixed it up a little.

  246. Good job, romy. That’s close to three miles!

  247. Do we have any Hostages in San Fran?

    I have a Boston layover tomorrow night, but we don’t land until 0030. Is Ace in NY or Boston? I forget. I know he’s a night person.

    The next night is a long layover in downtown San Fran, anyone in town?

    We land at 1930 and will be in town for 28+ hrs. That’s the good news. Bad news is that I have to fly the ‘red-eye’ to Pittsburgh the next day. 2300 departure from SFO, 0630 arrival into PIT. Ugh.

    At least I’m done when we get there and can catch a jumpseat home to STL after we land.

  248. Her eyebrows sure grew out a strange color.

    Volume.

  250. *cough* I’m in Boston *cough*

  251. >> How does Mozilla make money from people using heir free browser?

    1. Make free browser

    2. ???

    3. PROPHET!!!!

    Easy-peasy.

  252. I made my 5,000 step goal every day this past week.

    Yay Roamy! I would not even come close to that with this desk jockeying I have going lately.

  253. Bedtime. See you in some hours!

  254. Roamie,

    When I knew I was going back to the airline I bought the Jawbone Up24.

    It’s a bracelet that is an activity tracker, sleep tracker and food tracker.

    It automatically counts steps and sleep, but you have to tell the app what food you ate and any special exercise you did.

    I got it for the sleep tracking function. The accelerometers in the band do a good job of determining when you are in Deep Sleep vs. Light Sleep.

    You get a report that says how what times you were in each mode and for how long. It also knows how many times you went up to go the bathroom and how long it took you to fall asleep.

    It’s very cool.

  255. Phat, the Amazon folks are delivering an Up24 to Casa Andy tomorrow.

  256. Phat, I have a Fitbit and a dongle (your whore mouth, shut it) on my laptop that reads the activity and updates the health insurance points automatically. This one can also do the sleep mode study, but I skipped it after the first month because it was more effort than perceived benefit. There’s a couple of other trackers, but I would have to pay for them, and I’d just as soon use this one until I forget about it in the wash and break it.

  257. Beasn’s tinyurl doesn’t work for me.

  258. Nevermind. Found the wikipedia entry.

  259. Andy,

    Send me an email at transphat88 via the google assholes.

    Land around midnight on the 7th, leave at 4 pm the next day.

    Can do drinks late on the 7th/early 8th or lunch on the 8th.

    Staying at the Renaissance Waterfront. 606 Congress St.

    Let me know, been really enjoying the podcasts. Would be be cool to meet another Hostage.

    TiFW, xBrad, Michael and Tushar can all testify that I am not completely uncool.

  260. Will do. Lunch on the 8th probably works best.

  261. Roamie,

    I like the Up24 because it syncs to my iPhone with Bluetooth.

    The app also has a barcode scanner that recognizes what you eat and adds it to your day. It also knows most restaurant menus and you can just tell it what you had.

    I’m amazed at how much more I walk since I came back to the airline. It’s an extra 4k steps a day.

    It also sucks how much less I sleep. Changing timezones all the time takes it toll.

    When I see I’ve had a night of bad sleep on the app I tell the Capt, ‘Sorry, my wristband says I can’t go out tonight’ and I hit the rack early.

  262. Andy, awesome!

    We’ll move this budding bromance over to the g thing.

  263. TiFW, xBrad, Michael and Tushar can all testify that I am not completely uncool.

    Open your lunch date with the story about puking on a deer.

  264. Sean, google image her for the picture I tinyurled. You will spot it right away.

  265. There was a pic on her wikipedia entry. Yeesh.

  266. OK,

    That one was funny.

    ‘Elusive’ creatures my ass!

    My BiL, covered in deer urine, up in the stand at 4 am can’t find a deer.

    I staggered off to the side of the 2nd story deck at 2 am and managed to puke directly on one.

    How hard can this be?

  267. RIP, Mickey Rooney

  268. He was the world’s top box office draw from 1939 to 1940.

    Spanning two decades!

  269. There was a pic on her wikipedia entry. Yeesh.

    Yeah, but this one gives you more of the full flavor…

  270. AAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! MY EYES!!!!!!

  271. I staggered off to the side of the 2nd story deck at 2 am and managed to puke directly on one.

    How hard can this be?

    Did you have a gun in your hand? They can sense these things.

  272. Mickey was a stud. 5’2″ and bedded all of the hot chicks.

    He had charisma pouring out. Sad to see him go.

    Sorry for the you tube link. but tinyurl seems to be down.

  273. Andy, I was unarmed.

    And unclothed.

  274. Naked and defenseless I approached the deer…

  275. There ya go.

  276. That should be a thread. Finish that sentence,

  277. Mickey was a stud. 5’2″ and bedded all of the hot chicks.

    He had charisma pouring out. Sad to see him go.

    All he had pouring out in ’95 or ’96 was crazy. I booked him to speak at a client’s annual meeting and he was a rambling headcase who couldn’t even remember the name of the company or what they did. It was embarrassing.

    He droned on so long with a whole lot of nothing that I ended up having to go to his house another day to get him to sign copies of his autobiography. That was part of the deal — speak, sign copies of the book for all the attendees and hop on the private plane back home.

    I get there, (his wife, Jan, is wonderful), and he refuses to sign the books. I’m leaning down across the coffee table handing him a book to please sign and realize at about the same time that he does that the bodice of my dress was loose enough to give him a flash of upholstered boobies.

    Did I use that to get those stupid books signed and go back to the agency triumphant?

    Yes. Yes I did.

  278. I’m willing to autograph a book or two.

  279. Unholstered boobies, not upholstered. Feh!

  280. Yeah, right.

  281. ;)

  282. Naked and defenseless, I approached the deer. He hadn’t seen me yet, and maybe the sound of the stream hid my approach.

    Oh, I knew he was there — who could miss the way his head would pop up every few minutes to look for predators.

    It had been several days since the guys kicked me out of the camp. All I was looking for was a place to . . .

  283. Dolores entertained rambunctious parties.

  284. >> Yes. Yes I did.

    good job
