It's Interesting how these guys start these epic fantasy series and hammer out the first few books relatively quickly. Then they start happening fewer and farther between. It's almost like they get attached to the world and characters they've created, and don't want to see it end. I think that is especially true in Jordan's case, maybe not so much or to a lesser degree in GRRM's. The similarities are interesting, even thought the series's couldn't be more different in scope.
Making new threads about poo that has been discussed in-depth is frowned at on just about any message board. It doesn't help that there's a huge thread about it still on the first page. It makes you look lazy, or like an attention *****, of course people are going to point it out. There's no point in getting butthurt about it just because you can't be bothered with simple posting manners yourself.
Today I washed towels and sheets, vacuumed floors and dusted all my electronics. I cooked bacon, eggs and pancakes for my girlfriends kids. She is on a cruise with her buddy, probably getting banged by some goofy fuger.
"...might as well just punch my AARP card and get it over with."
Hey, now. Watch what you're saying there, you young whipper-snapper. I'm 58, still throw out the daily AARP junk mail and don't drink beer. When I do drink, I prefer tequila... no lime, no lemon, no salt, no bullshit. Jus' gimme the bottle and a glass.
Straight tequila is the business. No fkn Cuervo piss, real tequila. All that lemon and salt ritual is for is to mask shitty tequila, the good stuff is up there w any fine scotch or bourbon.
I used to text a lot, even driving a stick. One morning I barely missed a wreck when something blew out of a pickup a few cars in front of me, I had to go into the grass and the car behind had actually noticed and went to go around and we almost hit each other and caused a worse situation. My phone puts itself on auto-reply when I'm driving now, and I don't mind at all.
But, I ran into the back of a dodge while listening to Toto and making faces at my stupid girlfriend, so now 80's jams and easily amused gf's are banned from my car too.
I can't stand an automatic. That's boring as hell.
Was about to post the same thing, driving a stick forces one to devote more attention to driving and limits opportunities to do stupid crap like texting or eating. Granted, when in 6th gear on the interstate there is no difference but I'd still be interested to see statistics on accident rates for automatic vs. manual transmission vehicle. Maybe when I'm an old geezer I'll switch to automatic, but for now there's no way I'm driving anything other than a manual.
