Jeez. That kind of proposal is pretty much my worst nightmare.
For people crazy enough to like that sort of thing, if you're going to do it, then that's an impressive way... I suppose... I wouldn't really know, not being crazy.

I got the impression that the two of them were both on the same page. I think if you know your partner well enough, have kind of more or less planned to marry at some point (which it sounded like they had) it can be lovely.

It's when some dipstick tries the big public gesture with a girl who isn't on the same page that things get nasty.

And since this is the post whore thread I'm sticking this in as a separate post!

I have become ever so slightly addicted to a show called Man-v-Food, which has been running on Dave channel lately.

I'd seen it in the listings a few times and thought it sounded dreadful. Then one day with fuck all better to do I flicked over in, I admit, a rather sneery frame of mind....only turns out it's really entertaining.

My bro got me into it.
I've just watched some back to back eps right now!

I am conflicted about it.
I love it, but today he did a 50 wings challenge.
25 chickens (at least).
There is something disgusting about that.

I enjoyed the programme, but just feel a bit wrong about enjoying it.

Still, I'd make Adam's eyes water given half a chance. Yummy.

That's pretty much where I am at with it. On the one hand it's entertaining and he is an excellent host. But it sometimes turns my stomach to see the sheer quantity of food!

I had a small part in a skit yesterday. My brother's association (exec dir) participated in an earth awareness event at a local reserve. Through the week they had more than 2500 kids come. Great event. I had a lot of fun doing it.

Today my great-niece will be the honored guest at my 'rents Sunday dinner. She's 9 mo and starting to talk. Last I heard she had memorized the gettysburg address.

I keep getting a bubble of air behind my rearmost upper tooth, on the right. I can feel it there all the time and it makes a weird noise when I talk. It's most annoying.
Pretty sure I haven't randomly lost a tooth recently...
Maybe my face is making space for wisdom teeth?

It's not like there have been any accidents on the Hudson where errant ferries have smashed into piers. Oh, wait...

They better build a nice building for the shuttle they get, and pull it up onto dry land. At least getting the thing to the museum on a barge should be pretty easy.
I don't know how I missed this. Must not have been reported very much, or maybe I haven't been paying attention, but they slammed the shuttle Enterprise into a bridge abutment when they were moving it to NYC the other day. Damaged one of the wings. WTF?

OK - I got this damn thing at work and I can't figure out how to adjust the settings for the four side buttons. I'd like the smaller one on the right to be "Open in new tab" which would be the equivalent of pressing down on the wheel of my other mouse.
I also need to know how to scroll through a page without having to go to the damn elevator bar all the time. This mouse is supposed to be an advancement, yet I feel like I may as well use the up/down arrows and the tab keys. GRRRRRRRRRRRRR

Anyone?

Also, I HATE this thing.
