Awesome! Congrats!

Update: Did the lawn, cut more moulding for the stairs and base for the kitchen and stained them too. Got the Glass back splash today. Just need to find someone to install it for us. Now my parents are com'in over for a BBQ on the Weber. Damn busy day.

Update: It was nice bumping into you too Eddie.

You shouldn't sit on the edge of the kayak like that, you could very easily fall in the water.

Update: Saw the "Get Him To The Greek" movie. It was funny but not as funny as I was hoping. Definitely worth a rental but maybe not so much a rush out and see it type of movie.

Update2: When the hell did a small popcorn at the theater get to be $5.50.

Update3: Got a "notice" from my HOA today that we supposedly owe $150. Can't wait to have a conversation with them on Monday about this... HOAs suck!

Where are you skating ? The rink in Ellenton is awesome, the ones in Brandon and Oldsmar are OK but don't compare.

that's what I thought too (I pass it every week when I go to hang w my parents), but finally....I'm hanging out with someone that doesn't live within a three block radius of my condo. () so we will more than likely end up in Pinellas...to make it easier.

update: going to go hang w my parents in a few...

Update: Love hearing that my kitchen looks like it should be in a magazine!

Update^2: Fixing holes in the master BR today. Rough night! (Me moving the outlets, hehe)

Update^3: iPhone announcement tomorrow. Serious wood! OHHHHHHHHHH YEA!!!!!

Mein Auto: 2006 330xi
update: Dejected. I had negotiated a great price on a 330xi. Went to the dealer last night to sign and the idrive was frozen and wouldn't reset... they wanted to charge me the cost to repair (warranty expired in March). They waited until after we had been sitting in the dealership for 90 minutes to tell us this. Things broke down from there and the wife called them a-holes. Don't think I'm getting that car. Oh well, back to the search.

That sucks I would have called them a-holes too. In fact, a similar thing happened to me when I almost bought an A4. Went back to wrap it up and the A/C wasn't working. They wanted me to 'split' the cost of fixing it. The car was advertised as having A/C, so I walked. They called me back a day later and said they'd eat the cost if I still bought the car, and I told them where they could stick their car.

The upside, I bought a Bimmer instead. So, everything happens for a reason

Update: It would appear that I have a monster hangover from one pina colada. I would not make a good alcoholic

+1 on the Bimmer.

Maybe you are an alcoholic and you need MORE alcohol to get your fix. You're body is trying to tell you "Hey wimp! Whats the deal with just 1 Pina Colada!?!"

Update: Holes patched. On to Poly'ing the moulding and fitting the saddles correctly in the kitchen. How come I have to work while the wifes in Bklyn at a baby shower?

LOL, that looks more like a daiquiri than a pina colada

I'm more disturbed by the denim capris and red sneakers

You're probably right about it being a daiquiri.

As far as the denim capris and red sneakers go, what can I say. Eddie never had much fashion sense.

Update: what's the deal with guys wearing capris in California?

He's cute, but I've never seen a dog with dreadlocks.

Update: My dog loves going to the groomers and the Vet.
