I just mapped out my lunch run. Ugh. Not as far as I wanted and not as fast as I wanted. I was working on modulating my stride and apparently I shuffled my way through this one. Eh. At least I did one I suppose.

I love those little guys. It's awesome how the only "grizzly" looking guys are the Sabres and Flyers fans... Pretty fitting IMO.


I also like the Colorado and Quebec dudes... Very cool. Thanks for sharing

No problem. Google Reader has an OK search capability so it was easy.

Most of the retro ones along the bottom are sweet. Even the old Vancouver V guy.

You may also want to set down some ground rules for the immediate family. In-laws interfering with basic communication with your own children is not cool, regardless of the situation.
My mother-in-law and I have a "history".

There was a time that she was freaking out on me for practically nothing that we had an agreement that once she started yelling at me that I had the right to leave their house immediately.

It's been a while since that rule was needed, but it may be returning soon!

@Jim Bob: I wish your kid(s) well, I was about 16 when my mom cheated on my step-dad and it was the toughest time of my life. I think it took about 2 years for everything to get back to "normal".

Oddly enough, everybody ended up happier, we all get a long just fine, and my mom actually came out of that situation a much better person. She went from being a miserable, angry woman to being as caring and loving as a mother ever could be. Her new husband is a really nice guy, my original step father (whom I lived with during/after the divorce) is happy and successful.

Obviously, I have no experience with being on your end of this ordeal. For reasons like this, I am strongly opposed to getting married and having a family.

My #1 reason for trying to work things out are my kids.

I want to save them from as much drama as possible. My parents got divorced when I was 2yo. My mom said cheating wasn't an issue. But, I repressed every memory of the time when my parents were together and literally felt like I was waking up from a dream one morning when I was about 2yo and it was just my mom and I.

The drama between my mom & my step-mom was just so horrible. And I don't want my kids to go through anything like that.

I also hope that my wife's unhappiness before and my sadness now aren't affecting them.

But on the bright side, I haven't yelled at any of them since Sunday afternoon!

Just thought of something. We were supposed to go on a couple of trips that involve my in-laws in the next month.

I wonder how that will be affected given today's convo with my mother-in-law.

Ugh, you just reminded me of this. My mother and my step-father's new GF got into this huge "she said she said" thing where they were accusing each other of saying hurtful stuff and then denying it.

It got even worse when I started dating my dad's girlfriend's daughter. I basically told my mother at one point I never wanted to talk to her again. Thankfully, we got over that and I had my fun.

My favorite one was the time that my dad & step-mom came to pick me up for a visitation weekend. My mom wanted my dad to come in the house alone to talk about when & where they would drop me off on Sunday.

My step-mom didn't want my dad going in alone and starts yelling at my mom. My mom closes the front door and my step-mom starts beating on it. My mom calls the cops on her. After my mom yelled that she called the cops, my step-mom goes and sits in the car and tries to act like nothing happened.

And today, my step-mom will swear that she was in the car the whole time and that my mom called the cops for no reason. The first time she said that, my dad and I both looked at each other with a "did she just say that????" looks on our faces.

When we were alone we both checked our memories of that day and they matched up. We just shake our heads when my step-mom repeats her warped memory of that day.

The funniest part? When my step-dad found out we hooked up over a weekend camping trip, he was more excited than I was. He actually told his employees (his girlfriend and I both worked there). Apparently they were all talking about how hot she was and were passing around a picture of her. Talk about awkward. Especially because she heard about it.

They have dozens of girls who work for them. They run a website and advertise online, that's it.
I'll do it for 50%, so she & the other girls get an additional 15%. I'll split the 50% e-pimping fee with vcv if he develops us a new website.

And finally, I've reached top diamond status in Starcraft 2 (my only real hobby) and have gotten to the point where I've getting matched up against people who play the game full time for a living, and I win. I play an average of 3-4 games a night (Pros average 20-40 a day)

So yeah, can't complain.
So I guess you're the guy being cast to play Christian Gray in the upcoming 1st movie in the series?

Go upstairs to the attractive neighbor living above you wearing a towel and carrying a bar of soap. Considering your openly-shared-with-us luck and escapades, I'm surprised you haven't already done so.

Never heard that euphamism for it, but, per the above post, you won't get acne from doing it. If you can keep it under a few times a day, you also won't be embarrassed on a national TV show either. If you'd rather meet a woman, PM HockeyH3aven. He keeps a few extra women in his front Audi seat, his back Audi seat**, the local parks, and sometimes in his shower (especially nice if you like low water pressure). **lube is in the passenger-side map pocket

We just got a "use more discretion and find a different place, I was young once" talk for about 5 minutes, but another officer asked her who her dad was and she told them. Apparently everybody knows her biological father (she calls him "Black dad") and now she's freaking out about her dad finding out.

I thought once I graduated high school I was over this crap.

Misery loves company.

I can see the "logic" where the other guy thought the cheating wouldn't be caught. But no freaking way can I understand how someone would believe that once they were caught, the 4th party innocent spouse wouldn't find out. Seriously?? Really??

Possible responses:
A. Given your escapades posted here, I think the latter's a greater possibility than the former.
B. Since this board is archived, if some woman pressures you into marriage, have her join these boards, and we'll PM her links to all your posts.

Thanks.

It's been an emotional roller coaster, especially today. Right now I'm riding pretty high given the situation.

One day at a time. Hell, One hour or minute at a time!

This is a really tough one for me.

The other couple is on vacation and I have no idea if she is checking FB to get my message or not. Her husband is tech savvy and he may have deleted it already.

I'm really torn about how hard to work to let her know what is up. My wife still cares for the guy and doesn't want him hurt anymore and doesn't want his marriage ruined.

But, I so relate to the position that his wife is in right now where she is being lied to and I feel an obligation to make sure she knows the truth.

This is a really rock and a hard place situation for me. My mom basically told me to not go there. But, I feel that is taking the selfish route as opposed to the morally correct route.

I am so torn......

Jim Bob, my understanding is most people have no memories of their life before somewhere between age 3 and 5, so I think that's actually normal. Personally, I have very few memories of my childhood.

Make it fun. Change the hotel reservations to one room only, with matching queen beds.
