    Well that was ugly. Went for first run since April. Well, actually more like really slow jogging than running, dat for sure. Old man asthmatic lungs were kinda pissed off at 10 minutes in, did not like the cold damp air. They like hot weather biking WAY better. Anyway, 32 minutes, did not die. Will try again in a couple days.

    Met the Boxer I was talking about a couple weeks ago. He is the sweetest dog, had no problem with the gf or myself. Biggest problem qas him and Sadie didnt get along very well. Were fighting a couple times. Took them for a walk, they calmed down and were at least getting along.

    Might swing back by tomorrow to see if they get along better. But, Im not holding my breath, sounds like I won't be getting him. I really qant him though l, just dont want to put him through this again.

    I wasnt expecting this, Sadie hasnt met a dog she doesnt like, really surprised she acted the way she did.

    I believe that I just imagined the worst basketball thread ever, but it would have so much gold.

    Title would be "Why can't Fred use his buyout to buy out Prohm's contract and come back?"
    Can get in things like it'll show he really loved us all along and all kinds of cool stuff.

    I prefer Fred, but I'm not about to suggest something ludicrous like this in some serious way.

    Anybody have any good Christmas Eve dinner ideas?

    For the past five years or so my younger brother and I have been cooking Christmas Eve dinner (it's just my parents and my brother at this point). We keep it fairly low key, but my brother and I always like to try something new/interesting. We've done surf & turf a couple of times, did a reverse seared pork chops last year, and are just trying to come up with something mildly interesting for this year.

    Make sure you let CW and the rest of the CF staff know before you do so they can either a) let their hosting company know about the extra bandwidth they need or b) just shut down the server for a couple of days. A thread like that might set a record for most number of bans issued in a single day.

    Wouldn't giving them a warning defeat the purpose of such a mega-troll effort?

    I find myself getting off grid more often.....I am probably about 2 years from Marlon Brando Tahiti type stuff. Maybe he went there to escape law...I don't know.
    Anyway, really looking forward to the Chinese dark side of the moon expedition to blow your minds. Freaking aliens confirmed. I hope aliens are less boring than most people from West Des Moines.

    @dirtyninety you seem to sort of follow awards shows, who would you pick to host the Oscars now that Kevin Hart has been chased away?

    Two things. Morons who leave fog lights on all the time. All they do is blind drivers when no fog around. If you have a full trunk, pickup bed, or several large people in your back seat, your dims are now brights.

    My side of the family does soup Christmas Eve. Clam chowder, Italian wedding soup/meatball soup, ham and cheese, chicken wild rice with bacon—lots of possibilities. Serve with some nice bread. I used to do that with our own family, but realized I am the only one who likes soup. Now I do our favorite meatballs that are in a white sauce and served over rice. And ever since we had a foreign exchange student at my parents 26 years ago, we do rice pudding Christmas Eve. She was from Finland and that was her one request for Christmas Eve.
