Yeah my guess is she was still pretty PO'd about the ordeal and I was simply trying to make a joke out of the whole situation but she didn't find any humor in it what-so-ever ...
OOPS! :o

On a more funny subject.. A train derailed a few blocks from my house so I went to check it out and make a YouTube video about it.
Next thing I know, I'm being interviewed by the local NBC station out of Charlotte, NC and made it on the 12 o'clock news 8)

None. Just 3 chemical tanker cars with one leaning on a 45 degree angle.
Really just a minor derailment but the news has to make it a big deal for ratings I suppose :P

Dear manufacturers of women's intimate apparel,

Why the fuck wouldyou put a tag on a thong? Especially when it's bigger than the back half of it? It makes no sense. Also, could you please knock it off with pricing nras so outrageously? My size isn't particularly common, and I hate seeing really cute ones that are my size but pruced upwards of 30 bucks? I mean, yeah, I CAN fit into a size down and cup up, it's usually not possible. I mean, It's kind of a required garment, so please stop taking advantage of us. If you could please get back to me on these issues, I would be most appreciative.

Your Irritated Forced Customer,
Tegan

Also, I don't neccessarily think concubine is a bad term... It's just dependent from person to person. Plenty of women take and own the words Slut/Whore or whatever. There's no shame in it. It seems that she was offended by the term, and thought that you thought it was fitting and funny for her to be called out on it. Obviously you didn't, but she misread it. It's hard to read sarcasm and humor.

Maybe they're there for foreplay ??? To be chomped off later.. :P
Oh Hell what do I know.. My wife would rather wear these ginormous things that could be mistaken for a parachute in case of an emergency :speechless:

That's understandable.
She hasn't unfriended me so maybe she's cooled down some and over-reacted a bit :-\

Anyone remember Blockbuster?

What happens to people and the films they've 'bought' when that happens to UltraViolet and other cloud-based film depositories?  (Yes: when, not 'if'.)

[I know the answer, by the way.  It just confounds me how people can ignore this when assembling a digital-only 'collection'.]

Why the hell would anyone want to watch that movie multiple times?

That's not the store, that's their annual calendar.

OOPS! :o
Just chatted with her and she understood that I meant nothing by it. I apologized to her that I was referring to the whole situation as she described it.
She said she saw me on the news as well about that train derailment and thought that was hilarious so at least we got that whole concubine thing out of the way..

And she seems to have deleted our conversation I posted about yesterday.. :o
Fair enough

So there's a Kickstarter for a RenFest version of Parks and Recreation.

Apparently.

It's pretty unlikely to fund, it's pretty much asking for MST3K levels of support on a new IP.

Yeah, the MST3K cast members carry some clout with them, but I don't know if that'd be enough.
