    re-downloaded a game app (Harry Potter Puzzle tales or something like that...don't @ me) on my phone last night. haven't played it in a couple years. Anyways I just received a voicemail from someone working at the game

    "Hey this is so and so from Harry Potter Puzzles just wanted to let you know we noticed you re-downloaded the game last night and we just want to make sure you received all of your in-game rewards, updates, etc...."

    I'm not sure how i feel about this

    He transferred from my alma mater and then lied publicly about why he left.

    He’s an insincere try hard.

    He thinks bubble water protects his brain from concussions.

    He’s a robot.

    I was born allergic to milk, my parents built me up a tolerance to the point that I can enjoy most dairy, too much and I’m shitting my brains out. Realized during my first stint of Whole30 that I didn’t miss dairy all that much (pretty much the only thing I truly missed was ranch dressing) I’ve been consuming much less dairy ever since

    Appreciate it. I have that license plate hanging in my garage. :respek:

    Vols being good in football this year was a blast.
    Baseball, basketball, and football all top 10 seasons in 2022. Looking for tickets for the Texas basketball game in Knoxville later this month.

    Also, wanting to road trip to Fayetteville for the Arkansas series in April.

    There is a NY style pizza truck that has begun to post up outside the dispensary I frequent. 22 bucks for 18” pie or 3 bucks a slice. I swear, God wants me to stay 235 lbs forever

    Exactly. The over the top flattery and overrating by the media was annoying. Now that he's abjectly shitty it's nice to see that narrative ending.

    Plus those backups refs fucking over the Packers against the Seahawks because they were so incompetent, so egregiously wrong, that it ended the NFL Officiating lockout. Russell throwing that pass. People don't forget.

    Had a classmate in high school who was born in China. Her parents let her pick her own "American" name after she moved here and was cognizant enough. She picked Happy because she liked the word. Her last name was Dong. Happy Dong.

    During a workday I have 1 window with TMB, rivals, groupme, tweetdeck.

    Another with work related stuff that is anywhere between 3-7 tabs.

    Always close tabs as soon as I finish with it. I’m even known to close tabs too soon and have to open them again. Same with files on my computer, emails in my inbox, etc.

    I normally have 7 pinned tabs open at work at all times.

    At home, I have 14 pinned in two windows, but about half of those are sports scoreboard pages. Will drop one when college football is over though.
