Need help making time go faster.

1 week and 6 days is not coming quick enough, so I'm hoping we can all get together and ride to the west. This should speed up the Earth's rotation and make time go faster.

Thanks Foo!

Apparently you aren't practicing your 'pocket pool' quite as much as you claimed.

Keep these phrases in mind while you wait: "absence makes the heart grow fonder" and "good things come to those who wait"

Here - I'm cleaning this one now (printing and cleaning bike at the same time - sweet) - and I have three more at home. Get busy. This'll take up some of your free time!

I have a problem with these. Firstly, does that mean we'll get immediately bored with each other? Secondly, good things also come to those who don't wait.

I once got a rectal abscess and did not know it. Every time I would pass gas, it would sound like one of those import cars with the giant muffler on it.

I finally went to my Dr. and sheepishly told him my problem. Without even asking me to drop trou, he said he could guarantee I had a rectal abscess.

Sure enough, he was right. Astounded, I asked him how he knew.

He told me, "Abscess makes the fart go Honda."

I dunno - it's Friday. I was just throwin' it out there.

Do you prefer "when it rains, it pours" and "don't look a gift horse in the mouth"?

I'm with ya UA... I've ordered a brand new Jeep Wrangler and it's now on a train headed to CO, too. It's scheduled to be here the 7th. Dealer says it could be a week from today, though....
