  1. #1 Miserable day today

    The day started off with great hope of going shooting. However, the weather near the range was terrible so I scrubbed the trip after looking at the radar.

    Whats-her-name had to do some business so that left the cat and me alone at home so both of us curled up the sofa and took a late morning nap whiled it rained. So far so good. Life is sweet.

    Then whats-her-name came home and wanted to go buy new carpeting for the house. That is when things started to go to hell in a hand basket.

    I spent most of the afternoon standing around and answering stupid questions like “is this color OK for the computer room”? How in the hell should I know and no matter what answer I gave she still got what the hell she wanted anyhow. It cost me several thousand dollars and now I have to empty the bookcases and do other hard work before the carpet installers get there. Worst yet is that I had to put up with a sickening salesman who I swear is a regular on “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy”. Life is starting to really suck now.

    Worst is that I have to get out all my ammo and stuff from the gun room. At least I am getting OD Green carpeting for the room. Of course now I have to paint it and move an 800 lb gun safe.

    Why can’t women just leave things alone?

    We can. We just choose not to. It gives us something to laugh with our friends about.

    If we left things alone, the gun room would be carpeted with greasy rags and dirty socks.

    In actual dollars, President Obama’s $4.4 trillion in deficit spending in just three years is 37 percent higher than the previous record of $3.2 trillion (held by President George W. Bush) in deficit spending for an entire presidency. It’s no small feat to demolish an 8-year record in just 3 years.

    Under Obama’s own projections, interest payments on the debt are on course to triple from 2010 (his first budgetary year) to 2018, climbing from $196 billion to $685 billion annually.

    That, me lady, is called a "man cave" and should never be touched by female hands. It shouldn't even be gazed upon by the opposite sex.

    I don't really know what kind. It is a good grade but not the real expensive kind. With no kids at home and no dog we didn't feel it was necessary to get the top of the line. Besides, we will sell the house when the market picks up anyhow. On sale and with a discount is was about $8.00 a square foot.

    I really just miss the boat decorating. I nod. Agree with my wife. And we pay for it.

    Carpet? Whatever.

    And what are 'pillow shams?'
    Hey careful man! There's a beverage here!

    Pretty funny.. how you describe the carpet based on price. I bet whatsername would be able to tell me the style, color, and texture, including the padding underneathe, and price wouldnt even be mentioned.
