What has made/ruined your day

Post by Please » August 15, 2012, 4:42 pm

What I have noticed on this forum, is that there is not a lot of places to discuss things of a personal nature, therefore it is difficult to get to know everyone.

This thread is relatively simple, you post in here what has Made/Ruined your day.

For myself,

Made

- Premier League season approaching! Bring it.

Ruined

- Running out of Internet at work, therefore having dial-up speed internet!

Ok, I'm not such a good example, because my life is pretty boring, but I'm sure there is a few interesting people on here!
Well, at least Jack got paid.

Ruined- seeing an old guy collapsed on the ground at the shopping centre , having a fit and cracked his head open. Didn't look good for him , there was too much blood coming from the head.

That was pretty amazing. Sitting on the top floor of the Telstra building in Dickson and seeing it come down like that. Hopefully it'll snow at the game tomorrow! :p

Albi, my 1 visit to Bundy a couple of years ago I noticed so many cute very young women walking around romantically involved with very old men that looked like they were on a disability pension or something, total dead beats, youre not 1 of these are ya?

And yes when I turn 50 if I'm still single I'm moving up :)

Haha thanks, yeah she's watched a few Raiders games. Honestly she was shocked when I told her where we were on the ladder because she hasn't watched a game we've lost yet.

It was a tricky strategy of getting her to watch a few entertaining games, mixed with watching The Footy Show for a light insight into the game. Issue was she saw Beau Ryan and now like the TigPies.

Think the only way I can get her following the Raiders is if we sign Beau

This is the exact same thing for my wife, although it's taken me 3 years.

She follows the Tigers because she's in love with Benji, she calls him her "boyfriend". :x :cry:


Made: Have a long weekend off and I've been working ridiculous hours lately so looking forward to relaxing and doing bugger all.

Ruined: Some pr*ck has scratched my car when I was doing grocery shopping today with their car door. My biggest pet peeve in this world are inconsiderate people with other people's property. I don't care if your car is a sh*tbox, but mine isn't, so respect that! Grrrr.

Ruined Just read this article about this guy in the States who made a Youtube video asking for a Million dollars because he thinks it would be cool to be a millionaire. He sent it to a whole bunch of corporations and rich people. Someone gave him a million.
