#2574920 2/26 GDT : Red Wings 3 at San Jose Sharks 2

Posted by 55fan on Yesterday, 12:45 AM

Pretty amazing, Mikey.  You can go flex in a mirror and say, "Yeah, I'm that awesome."  Well, you could, but I doubt it's your style.

 

Score early and often, Wings.

Mickey only sounds as drunk as I am.




#2572415 This or That

Is there an address you can post for people to send them directly to the doctor?  I've heard of doctors doing this before.  From what I understand, they cash in the tabs at a recycling place.  The tabs are denser than the cans so they bring in a higher price without the bulk of collecting cans.  So, if people wanted to, they could cash in their own tabs and send the money. :)

 

(Nice segue, by the way.)

 

Whipped topping or ice cream on you pie?

I'll take neither too.

 

Flowering plants or leafy plants (for indoors)?




#2571400 How the Fathers Trip began

Posted by 55fan on 17 February 2015 - 12:13 AM

I know I'd love to go along on a trip, just to see what it was like.  If it was my son, it would be even better.  I'm glad this has caught on.

They are now saying "natural causes". 

 

Life is short, no matter how long you live.  May his friends and family find peace and solace in their memories of him.

Your right ... Just with what's been happening last few years that's the first thought that same to my mind ... And I checked his hockeydb and says he was in the khl last yr and he wasn't playing this season

Can't help but think he was depressed and took his own life ... Either way it's sad

Well find out soon enough what happened

R.i.p

It does come to mind after losing Boogaard and others recently.   Aneurysms came to my mind first since one of the sweetest kids I ever babysat had one last month in her 30's.  It wasn't fatal, but was close and now she has a hard, uphill battle remaining.

s*** isn't he still in his 30s?? Had to be suicide or something to do with drugs

Not necessarily.  Rare things such as aneurysms can happen at any age.

There are a lot of things that we still need "awareness" of, but is breast cancer really one of them?  Is there anyone out there who doesn't know what it is?

 

I'm all for raising money to treat and/or prevent it and to help people who are fighting it, but do we really have to be raising awareness?  At this point, I'd rather see actual fund-raisers that actually do something about it.

I like it when people are talking on their cell phones when they come up to the counter where I work.  It means I don't have to talk to them, ask if they have their loyalty card, or plus sell to them.  I just smile, take their card or money, and wave bye-bye.

 

I also think that plus selling is annoying, but I have to do it OR ELSE.  Literally.  I had to sign a statement that stated that I would give good customer service and that good customer service cannot be done without plus selling.  Stupid, I know, but that's corporate America for you.

Of course, we have fun with it.  When we're waiting on a co-worker, we always ask something stupid, like asking a single guy if he needs tampons.
