    2 more days and we're abandoning ATT for Sprint and EVO 4G's (if they have any in stock). Giddy like it's my birthday. Even scheduled a doctors appointment for 8:30 am so I can go to Best Buy / Radio Shack and get em.

    Anyway, question.
    I want to use my Dad's corporate discount from UPS. Live in a different city than him, but he gets 25% for Sprint. Anyone know if this might get shot down?

    P.S. last night sucked with no Lost.

    Worth a shot with the discount thing. Last night I saw the South Park takeoff on The Grapes of Wrath when the internet shut down. Now that was clever.

    Why are restaurants now pushing magicians on their customers before/after their meals? In 28+ years I had never ever had this happen to me. In the last month, it's happened twice. I'm not upset, mind you, I'm just curious.

    Is this just giving them practice on a captive audience? Also, am I supposed to tip the magician who comes over and performs a couple of tricks? Can I decline to do so (and retain the moral high ground) if he's sketchy? How do I tell if being sketchy is his act or just a life choice?

    Can't he just grab quarters from behind your ear?

    Seriously, magicians? Where in the **** do you go to eat?
    Consider changing the restaurants you frequent. Or at least show him a trick where your bill disappears.

    I need a new pair of shoes. Both of them have holes in the bottom now, and the foot liner is starting to fall apart. But I love these things. Sketcher Footloose. Freakin' awesome. Got a pair of size 13 extra wides a few months ago on clearance for like 7 bucks. Can't find replacements for less than 60. So I'm stubbornly sticking with these that make me look like a hobo.

    One was at Uno's, one was at a nicer local place (first time we had ever gone there).

    Speaking about Kristen Stewart from the other thread...

    A couple of months ago, my wife and I attended a concert in Montreal. The college kids that were around us were wearing flannel shirts - the ones lumberjacks made popular. I asked her if there was a new fashion trend that I was completely oblivious to and whether Wilco's fashions suddenly became trendy.

    My wife corrected me to say that it was the "Twilight" influence. She dashed my hopes that people were expanding their horizons.

    I guess I'm getting old. Now I see teenage boys getting haircuts like Justin Bieber, and just cannot comprehend why people want to be someone else instead just being themselves.

    Vampires wear flannel?

    They're dead, there's no need to preserve heat when you're dead :confused:

    Heh.

    The lumberjack shirt over top of a t shirt, jeans and hiking boots were the 'uniform' in my high school (1982).

    Grunge stole it, now Twilight stole it too?

    Never knew western Canada was going to be such trend-setters. :)

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." - Kung fu Monkey

    I was talking to a EOD specialist over the weekend while checking out the USS Iwo Jima. He pretty much confirmed my belief that The Hurt Locker was an utterly silly film. He was only able to about 25 minutes.

    In contrast. I saw Up In The Air last night, that was an excellent movie.

    REALLY good.

    Reminded me a lot of Thank You for Smoking, another epic movie by Reitman.
