Douche chills is the perfect term. Yes, everytime I see his smug face, I want to punch him and I honestly just don't want to laugh at his jokes because he seems so smug. Che is terrible but I was willing to be patient enough to let him get used to the gig but then someone here mentioned all of the backlash on his… » 11/19/14 10:09am Wednesday 10:09am

I had fond memories of the Peanuts specials as a kid but watching them now? Bleh. They're so dreary and boring and I forgot how much time gets sucked up with the Red Baron fantasy sequences. Also, they are all assholes to Charlie Brown. » 11/18/14 10:49pm Tuesday 10:49pm

System is absolutely broken. My son was just prescribed medicine. I have decent health coverage - United Healthcare. Doctor picked the best medicine for him but the pharmacist says it will cost $330 a month because it's not covered. Only two similar medications are covered. Doctor picks the better of the two - only… » 11/18/14 5:31pm Tuesday 5:31pm

To be honest, I think he's hateable because it's not a terribly true-to-life portrayel of Aspergers. I work with a few young adults who have aspergers and while they have their moments (and who doesn't?) they never veer anywhere close to Max territory. » 11/14/14 12:31pm 11/14/14 12:31pm

I'm probably GenX but I remember my first few years out of work this is what I did. I made nothing as a journalist but my end of the month paycheck was pretty much my "rent check" meaning I'd have about 100 left after that and then on the 15th that would be my check that I'd pay the rest of my bills and have some… » 11/12/14 4:06pm 11/12/14 4:06pm

No-nonsense? Cold?

I also love Olive. I wouldn't say she's humorless because she finds certain things funny but she certainly doesn't suffer fools. She's not going to pretend just to make a situation more comfortable for everyone. She's not mean, really. Her mean moments are rarely a goal but moreso a side effect.… » 11/10/14 1:48pm 11/10/14 1:48pm

There was a Disney movie in the 80s called "Help Wanted: Kids" where Shirley from Laverne & Shirley did this with her husband - hired kids to help their career at a children's clothing company. They paid some kids who lived with their uncle (played by Huey Lewis) and ended up adopting them. I can't be the only one who… » 11/07/14 9:57am 11/07/14 9:57am

Even if it's one of those crappy mega mall churches that looks like a AMC theatre when you're driving by it quickly? I mean, I can understand not wanting to fuck in St. Patrick's cathedral, but a mega mall church? Heck, as long as you close the door, go to it. » 11/06/14 4:07pm 11/06/14 4:07pm

It was not nearly as cool as I thought it was. I moved out there for a job. Stayed a little under 4 years. Maybe it's because my job was in journalism so I wasn't ever around the "weird/fun" parts of Austin but the politicians and they were a bunch of gross good ol' boys for the most part. Otherwise, the food was… » 10/31/14 1:20pm 10/31/14 1:20pm
