Not that we are in the big impact area or have been this year, but the winds were strong enough to rip my canopy to shreds and bend the poles in 12 different directions.

Now, my better half not wanting to leave without his precious four wheeler uncovered (it really isn't - it has got its own cover) and wanting to be perfect - bought another canopy.

Of course in the middle of the hurricane season in Coastal Carolina, he needs to put it together the day before he leaves the country.

Yeah, guess what "Ivan" now shredded the new one and of course bent the poles in 15 different directions.

Now to the advice I have given out earlier - excuse me I have to go scream into a pillow.

ARRRGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHh

Keep venting! I'm not sure what good it'll do to even go there with him though... will it change anything? Glad you are okay!

Now I need to vent.

The Star Wars Trilogy DVD set arrived at my boyfriend's apartment, and we decided to watch all three movies. "We" is myself, my boyfriend, and three other guys. 1/3 of the way through the movie the guys start making all these sexual innuendos. It's funny the first 26 times, but then it starts to wear a little thin. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for dirty jokes, but most of it is from nowhere and completely irrelevent to anything going on in the movie. By the end of the first one, I'm ready to scream and have repeatedly asked them to stop, then to the shut the hell up.

OVERKILL. Besides, they're all big boys, they're not 13 anymore.

Let me pull that mistaken thought from your head now, men never really grow up. Sorry.

Learn to enjoy it or don't hang out with the craven lot of them.

I'm as big a pervert as most (maybe more so), but the only thing sexual about that trilogy is the few minutes that Leia is in 'the outfit' and that's only in the 2nd one.

As for the canopy versus the shed scenario: you get what you pay for. Spend the money and get the shed. To counter what Tweak might say: at least a shed being a permanent or semi-permanent structure would probably afford some kind of remuneration under an insurance policy whereas a PVC or nylon canopy would not - you get what you pay for.

Can you tell I'm trying to prepare for the argument I will have with my girlfriend (wife for all intents and purposes) about the M82 I am going to buy? Why spend $2.5K on a single-shot bolt-action rifle when you know Armalite will release a magazine (read clip) fed rifle (that I would also have to buy) a few months later when I can just solve the whole problem by buying one magazine fed SA rifle NOW!?! ...but I digress: this is about you, dear: you're right.

Actually that idea came as I was trying to find another way to justify spending more money. ...but thanks.

I've hung out with him and his friends a thousand times before, and we're always cracking sick jokes at each other. But last night the jokes were coming from the depths of nowhere and had no relevance to anything that was going on.

Anyway, after the first one finished I took a breather to keep myself from going crazy. They started the second movie and jokes for the most part stopped. I think they all just had a little too much sugar that night.

Don't Do the Dew?

1st of all, tell him, "I told ya so". Then buy a shed. For your stuff. No real fourwheeler guy would leave their wheeler outside with out a shed. Weather and thieves. ???

Maybe you should Do the Dew then? Hm. Dunno. That or make pizza snax instead and throw them at the screen everytime they make silly comments you don't like.

That's a waste of good pizza snacks!

Throwing spoiled leftovers, though....hmmmm.....

If you want to shut them up in the future start talking about catheters - call them "foley" catheters if you really want to disturb them. I can give you detailed things to ponder aloud if you need help, but I bet you can up with your own.

I think next time I'll start talking about my uterus and what comes out of it once a month. That should shut em up.

Wait for some of the other guys to weigh in, but I bet mine 'wins'. If you do use yours though make sure you use the word "sloughing" a few times.

Ya, I was ranting about the decreasing maturity level in the room I was experiencing at the time.
