Amazing it's been a year, as it doesn't seem like it's been that long. (Not to sound harsh or belittling the loss but) Did you ever get your lizard?

Nope, it's something I'm still planning though. I think I'll want to rearrange my office before I do that though, as it's not set up very well to share with a terrarium in its current configuration.

And I agree... doesn't seem like a year at all. Time perception can be funny.

wow, a clunker that died at 100,000 miles? that's pretty bad in this day and age, even for american cars. i've only ever owned japanese cars, and they've all lasted me at least 100,000 miles before i sold them. my infiniti almost got to 220,000.

I thought I made it clear that the car didn't actually die, but had hit the point where the potential repair cost was impractical. It was a 2003 Accord, and had a theoretical trade in value of $6K, but replacing the transmission would cost over $3K, so it was time to walk.

What model is the replacement? Hopefuly your mechanic is an honest guy (well honest 'enough') and your replacement doesnt end up in the shop too often. Sorry to be so pessimistic, Ive never had anyhing but horrible luck with mechanics and used cars, mileage may vary on these things

We got a 16K mile 2012 Civic Hybrid with about 2-1/2 years of warranty coverage remaining, so we'll have ample time to figure out how reliable it is without it costing us anything extra. We got a good deal because interest in hybrids has diminished with recent drops in gas prices, but the 44 hwy/city MPG still seems very appealing to me.

I believe the really first steps though would be to post this as a news on the main page, maybe in the 'etc.' or 'Out of the Blue' section or something so more people would see it and more chance that someone kindly offer you some help. That would be a good start.

That's how I've planned on dealing with this when I was prepared to bring it up... I posted here and now because of your post.

It got to that point last week, as I picked the Seahawks to beat the Giants, which only seemed rational. Imagine my surprise when they were still tied in the second half, though in the end, the final score was not very surprising. Interesting matchups this week with a couple of starting QBs out... I wonder if Sanchez winning makes Rex Ryan's tattoo itch?

It looks roughly like that on mine as well.
Really? That's strange, it's the opposite from what we see on the computer where titles are bigger than articles.

Maybe they should think of a m.bluesnews.com? But again, after all those years, I look like the only one who care.

No you aren't... just a matter of manpower. This should all get a more dedicated effort at some point, but in the meantine, my more superficial attempts at getting the headline tags to behave on mobile displays has met with a little frustration. I'll take another look at this, and anyone with any expertise to share can feel free to offer suggestions.

I'm assuming you don't get credit until the item is charged?

I'm sure that's true... they pay 60 days after they are paid, so I think their goal is hold off until after the return period has passed.

For example, I used the links to order the latest archer and boardwalk empire, but both don't come out until January.

Ordered the dead snow discs the other day, and some pill containers. Oh, and Weird Al and COD.

Holiday rush provides lots of opportunities.

The support is greatly appreciated.

I started slow and picked up steam last year. This year I started off okay, but have been falling off as time passes. I guess my football fate is intractably tied to the Giants. Time for the big push!!

Ha, the Bowie and Sigur Ros in 8 bit were a nice touch. They even got Cody the dog.

I also think all the movie's gunfight sequences suddenly make much more sense if it is an 8-bit video game.

Blue, do you have a sweet tooth? You're so thin looking in your pics despite your love of all things grilled, that I figured you were more of a savory and salt man than a sweet man.

I have a fondness for some sweets, but you are right that I'm a little odd in this regard. I can't recall the number of times I've been questioned about my passing on birthday cake, for instance.

Seems kind of weird to temp ban botters but perma ban win traders. Unless they ended up permabanning botters after all, I never read any follow up on that.

When they announced the temp-bans for botting they also said botting would earn permabans going forward.

Last week was a good week for the Giants (they were on a bye), but they have a tough game against the Colts this week, on Monday Night Football no less, adding the team's traditionally erratic performance on National TV to the equation.

There are some interesting games on the schedule this week, including Manning/Brady 16, the powerhouse Cardinals taking on the powerhouse Cowboys, and a usually epic Steelers/Ravens game. It all starts off with a battle for first place in the NFC South tonight... good stuff.

Did pretty poorly last week... I'm not feeling in the groove, and the results show it.

Bye week for the Giants. Not bad timing after getting slaughtered by the Eagles two weeks ago and losing a game they should have won to the Cowboys last week.

The first time I referred to it here I called it the boiler, which was what we called it growing up in Brooklyn. People acted like I made the word up.

I have this superstition against changing picks after making them, since it seems like it always turns out badly. Last week was no different, as I decided on Sunday to get off the Lions based on Calvin Johnson's injury and the team's road woes and to similarly pick the Falcons against my first impulse, once again based on their disproportionate home field advantage. The two extra losses were enough to wreck my week even before the Giants put out the peewee squad against the Eagles, which was about as painful as it gets.

Okay, done looking back... onward and upward in week seven! Though it doesn't get any easier, as this week for the Giants, as they get the Cowboys, who look better right now than they have at any point since the heyday of the triplets. Yeeesh.

Don't really know how they'll do Civil War in MCU. Stark's MCU persona isn't really one to play ball with the government.

That goes with my thought that they could make a lot of sense of switching the positions of the two characters for the movie.

Also, isn't it furthest marker?

I always thought it was "first" as in "you won't last long".


I'd pop in the DVD, but I'm at work. First one to get home has to resolve this burning conundrum!

(PS, he definitely says "reach" rather than "get to" )

Reach is correct, but furthest is not.
