Next Wednesday I will undergo six hours of tests and interviews to determine my viability to be placed on the kidney transplant list. To say this is one of the most important days of my life is an understatement. Not getting on it means I continue on dialysis as long as it works and then that is it as they say. My doctor believes that I will get on as all my numbers are where they should be (for someone with kidney failure). Today I found out two of the pre-tests were waived! Either way I won't...
We're off later this week to attend a friend's wedding. Singapore's never been high up my holiday wishlist, but I'm kind of excited at this stage, as I've never even been in that part of the world before. We've got a few days free, during which we have a cable car dinner planned, and will probably go to one or two zoos or similar.
Has anyone else been, and has any recommendations they'd like to share? Things to do, or places to eat?
Be seeing you,
Name a sitcom you enjoyed and thought was headed to great things but the network suits killed it too quickly, didn't give it a chance to build an audience. Does not have to be a show you saw in your lifetime, you can nominate a show before your time that you have found out about and think was killed off too soon (my nominee is one of those).
Only rule: Show must have lasted one year or less.
So in Scotland growing up in high school we played a game called rounders ....when I say played it was whenever the teacher decide to select it in PE which was not often!
(there was no fielding gloves)
So at the age of 25 I wanted to pursue it and managed to attend a few training sessions at one of the teams where I live.
It has been great, at first it was getting use to catching the ball (I did not have the privilege of playing catch as a youngster with my old man)
It has been...
Can anyone point me in the direction of getting a good deal on some tickets for the afternoon game on Thursday, July 9th? I need 6 tickets.
Does anybody here play this game? It's a freemium game and it's a ton of fun! Just wondering if anyone else plays it.
Trailer came out a few weeks ago.
And today there was more news...
Worth mentioning HBO is a subsidiary of Time Warner, who is also the parent company of TNT (NBA games/coverage). CNN is also a subsidiary of Time Warner.
Seems like a pretty good fit for a guy who wants creative freedom. Hopefully he can poach some of the talent he cultivated over at Grantland and 30 for 30.
Post away :)
Have a great one, Sir! :gulp:
Just wondering in our TV age what people think is the worst sitcom they've ever seen. I've got one picked out, but want to hear some input first.
A few notes:
Does not have to have been a hit or long-lasting show. Could have lasted one or two episodes. Just name the show and say why you thought it was so bad.
One request: Don't pick a revered comedy as the worst just because most people love it and you think it sucks, and you name it "worst" because you're trying to make a point. This...
So happy that one of the best shows on TV is back!
Excellent start to the seaon IMO. I burst out laughing when Pete walked into the restaurant. He truly started over out in the west coast. This is the happiest I've seen him in about 2-3 seasons.
So Don didn't tell Megan he was put on leave? Dont think this bi-coastal marriage will last. Marriage can be hard work sometimes; being 3000 miles apart doesnt make it any easier.
Interesting Don is helping Freddy. Maybe that's how he not only...
Please carry on. Thanks. :)
So excited for this.
I'm getting a catchers mitt for my 9 year old and wanted to see if there were any recommendations anyone had, specifically with what size you would get. Would you go 31 inch or 32 inch?
Yeah, nuttin' fer the other areas. :P
Anywayz ... something like a food-tasting, food festival or anything similar, mostly in Manhattan (aka, The City). :)
Anywayz ... here goes the first offering in this thread:
I was watching the ceremonies this AM at Arlington National Cemetary honoring our fallen heroes and all the servicemen. I was especially moved by President Obama's speech it was appropriate and extremely moving. Toward the end you could see how moved he was by the occasion. He tried to keep it in but he almost lost it. Can you imagine the pressure on a President who gets to send our servicemen into harms way? It makes me wonder if the candidates for Presidency really think about the office...
I just wish to express my sincere thank you to the one, the only, self-deprecating true New Yorker, comedian and late night host, David Letterman, whose over 30-year run ends tonight.
Please share your Top 10 reasons for loving the man. :)
A very sad passing, and one that seemed to be quickly arriving, giving the way his health was going. A very sad day in the world of American music when one of the great ones (the unquestioned King of the Blues), who also has a live performance place on Times Square (on the Deuce), has finally left us.
Blues legend B.B. King dies at age 89 in Las Vegas
R-I-P :( :( :(
