I knew that the girl I was going to see in Milwaukee had an 18-month old. What I didn't know what that the kid is still breastfeeding. On my second night, we were engaged in the act, with her on top. I guess I forgot the situation because I squeezed a boob too hard, and got breast milk dribbled on my chest as a result. Not my finest moment.
Is anyone here still playing D3? I've picked up playing with my GF (who is a small-time streamer) and getting into Hardcore seasons. I'm looking for more people to play with to grind out some better gear.
SJohn - Let me know if make it up to the TCU game, I will try to get over there wearing my most obnoxious purple gear.
So, TCU is in a bit of a weird position right now. We have a TON of recruiting momentum - we have five or six Scout 300 players committed for this class, compared to 1 last season, and we just got a commitment from the #1 Dual-Threat QB in the 2017 class, the first five-star of Patterson's tenure and the highest-rated recruit to commit. Plus Kenny Hill has apparently cleaned up his act and is running our scout team offense while sitting his transfer year.
Boykin is the consensus pre-season Heisman favorite. We return all but 2 players from our offensive two-deep and didn't have any coaching turnover. Plus we have some fantastic young players who will be coming into the rotation.
But ... we lose our best defensive lineman, our badass linebackers AND their top backup, our #1 corner, and 2 of 3 starting safeties. The guys we have coming in are good, but unproven.
All together, we should have a good season, but we probably won't repeat last year's success. Baylor has more pieces to put together a playoff run *if* their QB can produce (and I bet he will).
Still, should be a great season, and we are well-prepared for the future with our recruiting, but I think pre-season expectations are too high. I could be wrong - Patterson has a way of churning out defensive players faster than expected, and our schedule is favorable for developing young players - but I'm keeping perspective.
I never posted again after reading the second book, but one thing the series needs is some consistency. Names and relationships change from book to book and sometimes chapter to chapter. It's *really* distracting.
I thought this book was excellent. I enjoy the discussion here, as well; I fall into the camp of appreciating that earth's fall wasn't well-described.
When the rocks hit, the reader and the fictional both are just hoping it's over and not as serious as it seems. The early news feeds off Earth talk about supplies being sent from the unaffected areas, and government control is still more or less in place as Amos goes on (the only reason he doesn't see more people is that he is actively avoiding them, IIRC). It's only later in the book that the full reality that literally billions of people will die starts to sink in. If we had been hit over the head with how bad the disaster was, the whole effect of experiencing the same denial as Earth's population would be lost.
I'm not sure if that was intentional or not, or if my reading of it is normal, but it worked for me on that level. The only thing I thought was weird was that Holden seems pretty unconcerned about his family in Montana.
I guess I don't understand Saul's financial situation. Even as a public defender, he was making $750/day or so, right, based on the courthouse scenes? Why does he continue to live in a single room behind a nail salon and drive such a horrible car? Maybe he's not banking like his brother did, but that's well above average income.
I am flying to Milwaukee this weekend to meet up with a woman I met on OkCupid. Hopefully I will still be alive next week to regale you with the stories of lust and/or love.
Other than that, dating is going well. Seeing one girl fairly regularly and plenty of other dates. I don't know what changed about me or my online dating profiles, but 2015 has been a vast improvement over 2014 in both number and quality of dates. And sex.
