Watto's Junk Yard / Necessary Evils
« on: June 20, 2004, 10:10 AM »
I tried to make sure this wasn't a duplicate topic so if it is I apologize....

After spending the better part of yesterday cleaning out the garage, I came up with a point to ponder with my JediDefender buddies.....

What is your number 1 necessary evil?  I mean that one thing that annoys you to no end, but you have to have.

Maybe it was just the setting of where I came up with the idea, but here is mine....

Packing Peanuts...the little foam pellets that most people use to pack stuff when they ship it.  No matter how careful one is, they will always Spill, Fall out or otherwise escape from the package and since I order 90% of my figures online, then  I end up with a ton of these things. They don't Sweep up well, they have no other uses (for me).

Anybody else have one?

Ok since my rooting Jinx is apparently in Turbo right now (sorry Leaf fans, see my rooting chart from days agao)

I have decided to sell/rent my rooting Jinx.  So get your bids in early, I will root for the "other" team during the conference finals for a low low price.

I just want Hockey back on TV, it has been a long 3 days.  

The most Hockey I've seen is what I DVR'ed from the last few weeks.  The best hit/aftermath of the whole playoffs is the guy in the last Philly/Toronto game who got hit and didn't know where he was, but was warrior enough to try to find his bench.  Having had my bell rung a few times and never even having the sense to know where I was, this guy (can't remember his name) is truly a player.

...hire her back ABC!!!!!!!!!!  We need more Melissa

Something the Viking fans and Cowboy fans can BOTH get behind....

I support the idea.  And I realize it is a tough decision to put any restrictions on an open forum.  I don' t think it is a decision to stop any of the current members, but as the forum grows, it is a genie that you wouldn't be able to put back in the bottle and you would end up with the RS situation.

But at the same time, I have to admit, I don't go into the Political Threads.  I get enough politics when I'm not in the forums.

Hey Eli Lindros-Manning.....where's the hat?

The only way to stink this draft up anymore would be for somebody to trade all their draft picks for then next 10 years for Troy Hambrick, but I did hear that Minnesota was interested.... ;)

Wow, I have to apologize to all Red Wing fans....I was rooting for them tonight....I should have known better....

Look at the faces on the Joe Louis Arena crowd...you'd think somebody killed their pet Octopus....

I feel responsible for the Red Wings and Maple Leaf losses....for my next trick...I'll root for the Avalanche...that game is on the deuce right now..

I must have...but it couldn't be too exciting if I didn't remember it.  Well good for him, perhaps I should rephrase and say I'd like to see the HYPE factor over which kicker will get picked first on day one....


Oh and the latest news on Eli Manning is that he will sit out the 2004 season if he is chosen by the Chargers....I'd love to see a rule that said if these overpaid whiners did that, then they could go get real jobs like the rest of us...oh wait, only a small percentage actually have degrees and real jobs...

Besides what do these guys think "Draft" means?  If he didn't want to play for San Diego he should have "tanked" the combine...I wonder what Vanderjagt thinks of this Manning....

I'd love to see the day that a kicker was sooo good that he got some 1st day draft excitement.....

Now to Eli Manning.  He is now on my list of whiny people that I hope nothing but failure for.  I will laugh my butt off if/when the San Diego Chargers get to the Super Bowl before he does.  I will refer to him as Eric Lindros from now on.....

Just got back from out of town for 5 days in the woods/boonies with no TV or Radio....

Well I Tivo'ed the Stars game, guess I can erase that one....

Per my Rooting chart from the previous page, it looks like my rooting Jinx is running 50//50 right now, get your requests in now for me to support your opponent in round 2!!!


oh well, in a way it is a bit more fun to watch now that the Stars are out, I can watch all the games and not get too worked up over a win or loss (not that i would trade that for a place in the 2nd round or beyond)

mine is the terribly witty and thought out first letter of my first name and my last name....I know its lame, but hey to an extent so am I.

Perhaps I'll change it for "privacy" and "security" purposes.  my problem is if I change it, i'll forget the new one and never be able to post again....

Are reenactments fun?

Oh most definately....

I have been a WWII re-enactor for over a decade (I spent my High School Grad $$ on the stuff to get started).......

And I actually just got back from a Vietnam Re-enactment 3 hours ago....

You learn so many more details if you do live it as oppossed to read it, like how does a C-Rat taste when it has been in a sock all day?

Some buddies and I were talking about F&I this weekend actually, but from Texas all the good events would definately be a weeks worth of vacation....  But we want to carry the Long Car-a-been...

Well Jesse of the Long Carabine, I'll join in with some celebratory actions with you....

Nothing like getting into the leggings, the loin cloth and grabbing the "war club", while we talk of Kan-tu-kay....

I think that the French Indian Wars are the most interesting pre-Civil War military battles in our (US) history.  Great names, great leaders. Sets the stage nicely for the Revolution.

Unfortunately, not enough info (books, Movies, History Channel) is based on this period, since it seems to have lost out to other Topical areas like the Alamo, the Civil War and that guy with the funny moustache in 1940's Germany...

« on: April 11, 2004, 11:21 AM »
Pre-Dollar Menu......when Taco Bell had 29 cent party tacos.....thats 3 Tacos for $1.

But nowadays it has to be Wendy's.  And I don't really like Wendy's that much, but I do admit their $1 menu is the goods....

Well my "rooting" jinx is in full effect this year.

The 16 teams in the playoffs on my rooting scale are listed here:

1. Dallas
2. Toronto (my Eastern Conference Team, this year)
3. St. Louis Blues
4. Montreal
5. Detroit (yes I know blasphemy)
6. Nashville
7. New Jersey
8. Vancouver
9. Ottawa
10. Colorado
11. Calgary
12.  Boston
13. San Jose
14. Tampa Bay
15. Islanders
16. Flyers

Again this is not who I think will win, in fact if my Jinx goes into full effect it will be a Philly vs. San Jose Final....these are who I am pulling for when I am watching 6-8 hours of hockey on the NHL CENTER ICE...

I'll be at the Dallas game tomorrow night, gotta love the fair weather fan, once the Stars went 0-2, the tickets became magically available from one of my buddies.
