    Man, I'd totally pay $5,000 for a comfortable couch that wouldn't look like shit - either totally dated or worn out - after ten years.

    I find comfortable furniture means big cushions, memory foam, and microfiber...and that shit just isn't durable like wood and leather. Not to mention that unless you have a leather couch (cold) or patterns (quickly dated) it's really hard to get spills / stains out.

    I suppose you could reupholster, but for the price you might as well get something new.
    It's because it is made in China. There is just a lot of shit furniture coming out of China, and it is going for way too much money because it is expensive to ship couches. I've seen an expansion in American furniture production because of the price, but there are some really good products at the boutique shops that are cheaper than the larger stores.

    This is a very pathetic accomplishment but today I quickly walked to work instead of taking the street car, got a sweat going and a good burn in my calves.

    I also signed up for a Meetup event in June.

    ~ * swole patrol calf achievement ribbon * ~

    This reminds me that last night in class I went to do a shoulder stretch and the armpit in my gi tore really bad. Took it to the place I got it after class and they were going to show it to the owner as they order them from Korea so hopefully I'll get a replacement free of charge since I've had it a little over a month.

    Still feeling the burn though from class and finishing up learning form 2 now. I guess we're doing another demonstration this month at another martial arts competition. Wondering if there might be some competitions I can go into as well but I guess we'll see.

    I love the show, and I don't understand why everyone thought this was hilarious.

    I felt like as an entire episode, it disappointed a bit but as web clips that cherry pick the best segments, it is beautiful.

    See, fuck leather. Leather fades in sunlight, needs just as much maintenance to not crack or get fucked up... if you happen to be doing something naked and sweaty on one it can get crazy uncomfortable or create funny farting noises... a leather couch needs a lot of love, and I say this from experience having grown up in a house with them.

    I don't want to sink or disappear into my sofa either. I like the couch to be that perfect balance of firm yet super comfy, that reaches the back JUST RIGHT without having to put a bunch of pillows behind you to bolster it up.

    My current sofa fails on some of these counts, but you can get something from ikea that fits all of them, and replacing the upholstery on an ikea couch because you spilled red wine into it is far less expensive than the 5000 dollar ones, where everything is triple-stitched in by hand and requires a month of labor to fix.

    I kind of think super-fancy sofas are a bit of a sham, even as I like the way they can look.

    That said, I would gladly drop mad bank on a kickass table, office chair, desk, etc. Or a bed. Beds are awesome.

    Put your money into the shit you use the most.

    Couch, bed, desk, office chair.

    We got a really nice dining room table and chairs that we've used...a half dozen times, maybe? The three of us almost always eat at the table in the kitchen - a cheap, glass topped table / chairs we got at Target or something.

    It's like spending bank on a nice master bedroom / bath and kitchen. Laundry room, entryways, garage, etc. Yeah, having vaulted ceilings and a big dining room is nice, but a slight improvement in stuff you're going to use day in and day out is better than a huge improvement in stuff you use rarely if at all.

    Is there any disadvantage to slowly paying off my student loans over time? There's 25c a day in interest, which means $7.50 every month. My loan is somewhere inbetween 3500 and 4000 and I put $70 on it every month. After we pay off Aaron's credit card should I pay off my student loan just as aggressively, or continue to do it at slightly above the amount they require from me (they wanted something like 60 a month)

    My Review

    Item #1: Bacon Egg and Cheese Burrito $1.69
    Good: Probably 40-50% larger than a McDonald's Burrito. Plenty of Egg and Bacon

    Bad: No spices or seasonings what so ever. None of those diced peppers/onions or anything. This is the plainest tasting breakfast burrito in the world.
    They use that shitty generic shredded cheddar cheese. You know the one that turns a gnarly orange and has a rubber like texture after you melt it? Yeah

    Footnote: They use that generic picante sauce that is basically Picketchup terrible.

    Item #2: Sausage Waffle Taco. Icantrememebrthepriceandmyreceiptgotdisentegratedinapoolofgrease
    Good: It's an innovative idea that probably would have worked had some other restaurant done it.

    Bad: They put it in a cardboard little box so it doesnt spill everywhere. You'd think this would be a good thing, but it's bad because it tries to hide the ugly truth. AND FAILS
    The taco had so much grease pouring from it the bottom of the box disentegrated and my taco was about to fall through. This is a bad sign for things to come.
    Opened the box and was greeted with the ugliest fucking thing I've ever seen in my life. This thing looked like it had been through the worst society had to offer and when society had finished it threwup a bunch of rubber neon orange cheese on it.
    Grease was pouring off of the sausage pattie destroying everything in its wake. Including its waffle bed. Which brings us to the waffle.
    That is not a fucking waffle. I can't describe what it taste like. maybe some kind of paper soaked in pork grease? Throwing an eggo waffle into the toaster would have had better results than this monstrosity.

    Bless your heart.

    No news, so I guess he dropped it, it's just I only heard about it today; he accused the Lego Movie of ripping off the whole Superman hating Green Lantern bit from a commercial he did, despite the situation being rather different and probably based on the flop Ryan Reynolds movie, not an old thing Jerry Seinfeld did.

    Hard to find stuff that's nice and simple. Took us forever to find a high quality dining room table.

    If we had more time, we would probably make our wood furniture ourselves. Wife was state-champion in woodworking when she was in high school, and I'm pretty good myself. If we hadn't needed something for Thanksgiving, we probably would have made something like one of these (yes, it's Ron from Parks & Rec's shop):

    This winter I'm going to do my closet that would cost ~$10,000 to have installed for ~$800 in materials. Wife isn't 100% on what she's going to do with hers though.

    So creepy

    I think the judgement is made when you have to cite age of consent in the conversation. its one of those things, like saying "im not racist, but"

    The guy is like 34, everyone knows its half your age + 7
    34 /2 = 17 + 7 = 24. He could consent to sex before she was born. Now, that aside, I really just don't give a shit. Time traving back as a 17 year old male if you told me I could bang a 34 year old actress? /yesma'am

    Edit: Furthermore, I think people don't realize how many stardoms and actors/actresses are around, because they jumped on the bone train to stardom.
