Jesus.

HAHA much better.

kenan, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:28 (thirteen years ago) link

It's a thread about driving and talking on your cell phone, legally. Do you see?

kenan, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:28 (thirteen years ago) link

I wish I had left the Fing word out...

:(

Jesse, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:28 (thirteen years ago) link

I had already suggested a new thread title.

dan m, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:29 (thirteen years ago) link

haha jesse's thread loses, this will go down on yr permanent record

kenan, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:29 (thirteen years ago) link

Heeeey, guess what? I don't want to be at work.

KitCat, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:32 (thirteen years ago) link

Chicago, why do your craigslist ads insist upon showing photos of the toilet?

KitCat, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:34 (thirteen years ago) link

Fing fang fong.

jaymc, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:34 (thirteen years ago) link

HI SARAH. I had potato pancakes with applesauce.

n/a, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:34 (thirteen years ago) link

xxpost The one toilet in Chicago, you mean? Yeah, that thing is a mess.

kenan, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:34 (thirteen years ago) link

I think you have a doctor appointment at 3, in milleneum park.

Eazy, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:35 (thirteen years ago) link

How were they, Nick?

Really, EZ? Lemme check my calendar... It's just so dumb because the bosses aren't here, I have no work to do, and it is LOVELY out.

KitCat, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:37 (thirteen years ago) link

How does this photo lead to an apartment rental?

KitCat, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:39 (thirteen years ago) link

Are you saying that's the *only* photo of the apartment?

jaymc, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:40 (thirteen years ago) link

I will not mention it except vaguely, but I am still curious about the man on the end of that other thread that can do that thing. It seems very special to me, but for all I would know, 50% of everyone can do it. How would I know? Where do I find this research?

xpost Shower curtains are very hard to buy yourself, and so increase the value of an apartment hugely.

kenan, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:40 (thirteen years ago) link

Is that the only photo in the post?
I like seeing each room, including the bathrooom.

Jesse, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:40 (thirteen years ago) link

Do you guys think I should go back to playing a semihollowbody guitar? They have this guitar at Music-Go-Round for pretty cheap, and it got good ratings on Harmony Central:

n/a, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:40 (thirteen years ago) link

I kind of miss playing a semihollowbody, and the strings keep breaking on my new guitar.

n/a, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:41 (thirteen years ago) link

i know nothign about guitars, but i think you should get that.

it's RED.

Laurel, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:42 (thirteen years ago) link

I like it. Go try it out after work!

Usually, the toilet photo isn't the only one, but I think if a view doesn't "sell" it has no place in an ad. If anything, that kind of photo would deter me from checking a place out.

KitCat, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:43 (thirteen years ago) link

julia otm, it's not just red, it's beautifully round. That is an attractive guitar, srsly.

kenan, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:43 (thirteen years ago) link

Oh, I think it's fine if it shows several photos of the apartment and that's one of them. That photo at least shows me that the bathroom is kind of small.

jaymc, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:45 (thirteen years ago) link

Laurel is that a FASHION suggestion for me?

n/a, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:45 (thirteen years ago) link

Yes, to be worn while guitar is played.

Laurel, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:46 (thirteen years ago) link

no no orange and red?!

kenan, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:46 (thirteen years ago) link

That guitar is screaming for a black shirt.

kenan, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:47 (thirteen years ago) link

I had potato pancakes with applesauce.

Wrong Jewish holiday.

Jordan, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:48 (thirteen years ago) link

yes, you will have to buy outfits to accessorize with your awesome guitar. i don't think sarah would mind helping you shop.

JuliaA, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:48 (thirteen years ago) link

Yo, Hammer, Don't hurt 'em.

KitCat, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:48 (thirteen years ago) link

I think the red value is off :( Tried to find a better photo quickly but no luck.

Laurel, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:48 (thirteen years ago) link

(by which I meant Hamer)

xpost NOpe Don't mind.

KitCat, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:48 (thirteen years ago) link

I can't stop thinking about cookies & I believe this is only because I've decided to try & be healthier.

Jordan, did you hit up the RH service last night? I'm actually attending a RH dinner tonight.

sweet tater, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:49 (thirteen years ago) link

I know 0 about guitars, but I always thought that that kind would be good to play. It seems like it would have a nice resonance or something.

there's your shirt, brah.

kenan, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:50 (thirteen years ago) link

Yeah Kelsey, I went for 20 minutes and then they stopped to have a dinner, and I left.

Jordan, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:51 (thirteen years ago) link

what is the 'a' vs. 'an' rule when using a vowel-sounding initial for a word that does not sound like a vowel?

sweet tater, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:51 (thirteen years ago) link

did you eat apples & honey? does that happen?

sweet tater, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:51 (thirteen years ago) link

there was an ad on tv last night for some sort of oreo pizza and it had this guy with a fake mustache made up of bits of oreo and frosting and it made me want to never eat oreos again.

i am eating mangoes and watermelon.

JuliaA, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:51 (thirteen years ago) link

WAIT NO NO THIS SHIRT

kenan, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:51 (thirteen years ago) link

I have seen that ad & I completely agree!!! The cookies I am thinking of are of the homemade variety.

sweet tater, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:52 (thirteen years ago) link

I did not, but I remember apples & honey when I was a kid.

Jordan, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:52 (thirteen years ago) link

IT HAS TIGER STRIPES AND BONES AND A BOTTLE OF POISON AND IF YOU DO NOT GET THIS SHIRT I WILL

kenan, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:52 (thirteen years ago) link

You go by the sound, not the letter. Like "a university." If that's what you're asking?

jaymc, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:52 (thirteen years ago) link

FRINGE! ALSO FRINGE!

kenan, Thursday, 13 September 2007 18:52 (thirteen years ago) link

I have been killfiled for the day, haven't I? I deserve that.

hee hee hee I just emailed the dude about the same bike

dan m, Thursday, 27 September 2007 21:58 (thirteen years ago) link

Apparently a local bar that I've previously written off as lame serves this:

http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1325/1373173673_51899f28d4.jpg

It seems like a great idea, although smores + drinking seems like not such a good idea.

Jordan, Thursday, 27 September 2007 22:00 (thirteen years ago) link

And that local bar is Cosi?

jaymc, Thursday, 27 September 2007 22:05 (thirteen years ago) link

no

Jordan, Thursday, 27 September 2007 22:05 (thirteen years ago) link

I have never been to one of those, but I guess they do the smores thing too?

Jordan, Thursday, 27 September 2007 22:06 (thirteen years ago) link

Some of them do. The ones that also serve liquor, I think.

jaymc, Thursday, 27 September 2007 22:08 (thirteen years ago) link

I am going to see Eastern Promises tonight!

Jordan, Thursday, 27 September 2007 22:09 (thirteen years ago) link

guys, apparently delilah's is celegrating it's 5000th straight day of being open tonight?

river wolf, Thursday, 27 September 2007 22:12 (thirteen years ago) link

cele....grating?

river wolf, Thursday, 27 September 2007 22:12 (thirteen years ago) link

I think an annoying party is a celegration.

Jordan, Thursday, 27 September 2007 22:14 (thirteen years ago) link

delilah's is out of my price range. i may be in uptown tonight if anyone is near the red line. or the ashland bus. or the irving park bus, or the clark bus, or the sheridan bus...

chicago kevin, Thursday, 27 September 2007 22:17 (thirteen years ago) link

i don't think i've even been to delilah's.

tonight: STNNNG v. Melvins v. staying at home like a responsible adult

river wolf, Thursday, 27 September 2007 22:19 (thirteen years ago) link

delilah's = awesome punk rock bar and maybe the best selection of bourbon in the city.

chicago kevin, Thursday, 27 September 2007 22:33 (thirteen years ago) link

that's because we have a large number of regular posters without jobs. and those with gainful employment aren't really fanatics about it.

chicago kevin, Friday, 28 September 2007 01:40 (thirteen years ago) link

FUNEMPLOYMENT AMIRITE

river wolf, Friday, 28 September 2007 01:47 (thirteen years ago) link

chicago kevin, Friday, 28 September 2007 01:51 (thirteen years ago) link

Eastern Promises is good, if you like Russian accents and Viggo Mortensen's balls.

Jordan, Friday, 28 September 2007 02:47 (thirteen years ago) link

oh shit spoiler!

Jordan, Friday, 28 September 2007 02:48 (thirteen years ago) link

colette, Friday, 28 September 2007 03:26 (thirteen years ago) link

Oh man. The Office. Great. They managed to cram all the funny in 1 hour without all the stupid serious relationship stuff.

Jeff, Friday, 28 September 2007 03:56 (thirteen years ago) link

We are having band practice tonight but would anyone want to do anything after? Maybe go to Danny's?

n/a, Friday, 28 September 2007 12:36 (thirteen years ago) link

The Office was so great last night. I think my favorite parts were the visual gags - Angela body checking Dwight into the copier and Andy walking out of the bathroom after preparing for the nipple chafing.

jon /via/ chi 2.0, Friday, 28 September 2007 13:13 (thirteen years ago) link

I want to go to Danny's! I've only been once and that was a while ago.

KitCat, Friday, 28 September 2007 13:23 (thirteen years ago) link

I enjoyed the Office but thought it seemed a little off from the last couple of seasons. All the characters seemed ... dumber? But I still laughed.

n/a, Friday, 28 September 2007 13:26 (thirteen years ago) link

"This is the face of rabies."

Yeah, it was pretty great.

kenan, Friday, 28 September 2007 14:01 (thirteen years ago) link

And Pam and Jim were always cute, but holding hands? Dangerous levels of cute.

kenan, Friday, 28 September 2007 14:01 (thirteen years ago) link

I think my favorite was Michael's long drawn-out description of the various animal gods they might have to make sacrifices to. Such a weird scene.

"The head of a monkey ... but with ... the antlers of a reindeer ... and the body of ... the body of ... a porcupine."

Also: nipple-chafing jokes.

Also, the MCA is doing a ton of free shit over the next 40 days for their 40th anniversary. Sarah and I might go tomorrow to actually check out the art, but also Oct. 7 is a free concert with Flosstradamus, Cool Kids, Califone, Poster Children, the 1900s, the Eternals, and Headache City.
