but seriously … this forum needs better smilies? :unamused:

Happy Birthday Tom :smiley:

Thanks ever one. Was a good day with some rough edges.

My pop got me a sony playstation :slight_smile: I don’t even have a TV. I had to respectively decline since I would waste a lot of time if I had one of those things. I suppose I would be a better marksman though if I did and played those 3rd person shooter games.

The studio got another 8-channel extension car for the mixer. Nice to stretch out over 24 channels and not have to page around as much.

Girlie got me a fondu set. When we returned from dinner, the dog was proudly carrying what was left of the once-gift-wrapped sourdough loaf around like a prize. There were bread crumbs all over the house. Friking everywhere! The dog also got into the chocolate but only got a little bit of it and wound up needing to go out every 10 minutes to relieve itself. Thankfully I was able to sleep through most of it! :mrgreen:

Still experiencing some serious rough edges with the girlfriend. Don’t have a lot of patience for it during this time of year. Driving home from her house cursing in the car which is really rare for me. I even spent the day getting re-centered and sang positive reinforcing improv while playing guitar. Some serious polarity issues here.

I have had worse years though.

Happy Birthday Tom!!! :smiley:

Replace “girlfriend” with “wife” and it starts to sound like my life. :unamused:

I wish she had listened during the past 6 months when I told her we needed to cut back spending. And I wish I hadn’t waited so long to take away the credit card. Now I have to play the Grinch since we can’t afford much for Christmas. Ugh.

I’m glad you had a good birthday though! :slight_smile:

Yeah… Happy belated b’day! :smiley:

:question:

:stuck_out_tongue:

Sorry to hear that Larry. Well, things could be worse, right? My girlfriend is kinda bad too re:Spending. The card is filled with gifts… oof

I guess sidecar would have been more appropriate. Maybe not at all! :laughing:

I can’t believe you turned down a PS3! It’s not a time waster but rather a time ENHANCER! :slight_smile:

Happy Birthday Tom!

I also declined the gift of a PS3 from my brothers a year or two ago – I knew I’d never play it. They kept it and play it all the time

Regarding wives and girlfriends: I’ve arrived at the conclusion, after much analysis and study, that women, although beautiful and possessing many nice qualities, are actually quite crazy. Not insane… just crazy

“Why Can’t a Woman Be More Like a Man?”
music by Frederick Loewe; lyrics by Alan Jay Lerner
PROFESSOR HIGGINS:
Why can’t a woman be more like a man?
Men are so honest, so thoroughly square;
Eternally noble, historically fair.
Who, when you win, will always give your back a pat.
Why can’t a woman be like that?
Why does every one do what the others do?
Can’t a woman learn to use her head?
Why do they do everything their mothers do?
Why don’t they grow up, well, like their father instead?

Why can’t a woman take after a man?
Men are so pleasant, so easy to please.
Whenever you’re with them, you’re always at ease.

Would you be slighted if I didn’t speak for hours?

COLONEL PICKERING:
Of course not.

PROFESSOR HIGGINS:
Would you be livid if I had a drink or two?

COLONEL PICKERING:
Nonsense.

PROFESSOR HIGGINS:
Would you be wounded if I never sent you flowers?

COLONEL PICKERING:
Never.

PROFESSOR HIGGINS:
Well, why can’t a woman be like you?

One man in a million may shout a bit.
Now and then, there’s one with slight defects.
One perhaps whose truthfulness you doubt a bit,
But by and large we are a marvelous sex!

Why can’t a woman take after a man?
'Cause men are so friendly, good-natured and kind.
A better companion you never will find.

If I were hours late for dinner would you bellow?

COLONEL PICKERING:
Of course not.

PROFESSOR HIGGINS:
If I forgot your silly birthday, would you fuss?

COLONEL PICKERING:
Nonsense.

PROFESSOR HIGGINS:
Would you complain if I took out another fellow?

Pickering
Never.

PROFESSOR HIGGINS:
Why can’t a woman be like us?

[dialog]

PROFESSOR HIGGINS:
Why can’t a woman be more like a man?
Men are so decent, such regular chaps;
Ready to help you through any mishaps;
Ready to buck you up whenever you’re glum.
Why can’t a woman be a chum?

Why is thinking something women never do?
And why is logic never even tried?
Straightening up their hair is all they ever do.
Why don’t they straighten up the mess that’s inside?

Why can’t a woman behave like a man?
If I was a woman who’d been to a ball,
Been hailed as a princess by one and by all;
Would I start weeping like a bathtub overflowing,
Or carry on as if my home were in a tree?
Would I run off and never tell me where I’m going?
Why can’t a woman be like me?

LOL Glyn :laughing:

Thanks Steve :slight_smile:

Do you realize that a PS3 is ALSO a Blu ray disc player and can even do 3D movies? You can also stream or download movies from Sony, Netflix, Vudu and TV shows from Hulu with an internet connection. And you can stream music from any home PC on the network. Plus more…
