Well that kind of sucks. All of this media attention worries me that there may be negative ramifications to the "fun-ness" of the show.

I was expecting a very nice check today and was handed one for less than half the amount I was expecting!! The ******* lady never got my email with the revised invoice I sent her! Son of a bitch!!!

Needless to say, that was an awkward moment. I told her I almost **** when I opened the envelope and saw the amount. Now I need to wait until I get home and resend the newer invoice and hope she doesn't **** when she sees that one! lol

The ones driving the frakkin' Kias.

Some smelly little rodent and his hoodie-wearing homeboys go rappin' on down Hamsterdam Ave. in their little green shitbox and this is supposed to make me want to buy a car?

That had been around for a few months. I don't know what its supposed to make me want to do, I think theres a subliminal message in there somewhere, something like "Don't buy a Kia... DON'T BUY A KIAAAA".

I don't understand most ******* marketing these days. None of it makes sense anymore. Commercials used to be straight forward. "Buy our product, it's the best!" Now it has to be all artsy fartsy with "cool" music, dancing, and generally stupid bullshit that often makes no goddamn sense (hamsters).

The Head of the FAA was busted for DUI. Having worked in aviation for many years Ive always said aviation promotes alcoholism.

In business? You will here that excuse many many times. Rest assured, it's horseshit.

Use of "target" and "11 year old boy" in same post by Admin of a Miata forum.

Priceless.

Funny bootcamp story:

My brother sent me a letter form Parris Island today, he said that they (the recruits) where doing drills (marching) and one recruit couldn't get it right. Eventually the Drill Instructors had enough of that particular recruit and punished him by having him run around the marching platoon yelling "THIS RECRUIT IS A ******* RETARD".

Moral of the story: Don't **** up at boot camp.

Ohh I hear ya. Whenever I owe a client money they sure as **** expect it before I even have it in my own hands. When its the other way around though, people sure do drag it out as long as possible. At least it sure seems that way.

I'll give her till Monday before I start getting nasty about it. For now, I'm giving here the benefit of the doubt.
