    Today I learned that I book that I want is only available in paper!

    The interstate freeway was closed because of an overturned Milk Truck, so people had to take a US highway this morning.

    My wife wants a larger house because we have so much crap. I want less crap.
    I burned down the church to atone for my transgressions.

    I got upset a while back because my DVR could only record 4 shows at once.

    Ah - so YOU'RE the one those commercials for Direct TV are about! I can't relate because it's rare that I can find ONE show to watch, let alone four.

    When that happens, I have to go to my computer and stream hulu. But the computer is in the other room.

    My favorite band (you wouldn't know them) is getting too popular so I have to stop liking them.

    A book I want to read is only available in electronic format at the library, and I don't have an e-reader.

    RT's MacBook's hard drive crapped yesterday after updating the OS. Apple tried to resolve it remotely, then told her to take it to the Apple Store. The Genius Bar told her it would 3-5 days, a death sentence to her even though she has other computers at her disposal. The sent her an email this morning saying it was already repaired and to come pick it up. The taxi was not available to her today

    It doesn't expire does it? I say today. Tomorrow you might get a deal on a sub or some mexican food.

    Anything wrong with buying 4 boxes of Girl Scout cookies ?
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I have a live fantasy baseball draft going on since last Monday. Do I follow the draft from my laptop at home, computer at work, my iPhone, or my Kindle? Too many choices!!!
