Welp. There's a Jack in the Box across the street one way and a Burger King across the street the other way...you should be all good.

I'll probably have a salad, thank you very much. And a huge helping of Mushy Peas, of course.


Looks like Marc and Ivy need to bring some Arby's Big Montanas with them.

Goes great with Spotted Dick or Bangers.

Yeah, I am not a fan of buffet food anyway (except the all you can eat crab legs at Fort McDowell Casino). So I should have known. But honestly, all the trays of food looked like vomit. I don't know that I would enjoy it even if it was not a buffet. But I am willing to give it a second shot.

Robbie Fox's is just a few feet west of Mill Avenue on 5th or 6th st. It's right across the street from the ZTejas and those giant empty condo buildings. Meters are free after 6 but there's a parking lot adjacent to ZTejas and some of the spots right outside the bar aren't metered and have free parking.

chairmenmeow47

I went to Wild Horse Pass Casino on Saturday night around midnight. I give it a 4 star review. Easily the best AZ Casino I have been too. It helps that it's only 15 minutes up the road but I really like the layout. I played slots for a few minutes and blew $20 super fast. Then I won it back at blackjack. I decided to check out the poker room and sat down with $50. I played for about 2 hours and won $100. They had a pocket face card bonus, first person to crack JJ, QQ, KK, or AA's and lose the hand gets $200. I was at a simple $3-$6 limit table when I got pocket AA's. We raise to the max limit after every card and at the end my pocket AA's beat pocket KK's and pocket QQ's. The flop, turn and river didn't help any of us. I won the fat pot, the KK's were already cracked so the QQ's won the $200 bonus. That was the first time I stayed up all night in a while. I went to bed after 6am. I can't wait to go back.

Well I'm Not Yo' Average Cat, it was alright, crowd seemed fine. There was actually a lot of topless women getting painted which was a nice surprise.

That all said, I probably stayed less than two hours, but it wasn't bad. Would go back.

Already been discussed to death, but it's kind of hard to gauge. For me, about 80% of the people I know are against it, and 20% are for it. But for the ones who are for it, it might be the opposite, because they tend to surround themselves with people with the same political leanings.

Personally, I don't care much unless I see/hear of some actual abuse of power. I was against the original bill, but an amendment was passed that took care of the things that I was concerned about. I think law enforcement should be allowed to deal with people in the country illegally since the feds aren't doing it. On the other hand, I also think it should be really easy to enter legally.

Most of the people in favor of the law are of the "git rid a them dirty meskins" type, so I don't side with them. And most of the people against it haven't researched it, and/or just like to fight about anything the Maricopa Sheriff's department is involved in, so I don't side with them.

I guess I'm in favor of the law as long as someone is keeping the dickhead sheriff in check. Which there won't be, but that's not the law's fault.

Well, I have finally done it. I registered for school. Only took me 10 years from HS graduation. Classes start aug 30th. Have to admit im a little nervous about going back to school after being out for a decade. but hey I had to start sometime. I feel like im finally ready to commit to it. sweeeeeeeet. This has been a great year. ok thats all :)

Congrats NachoCat. I made the same decision a couple of months ago and did better than I ever have before in any school by getting two A's. Apparently the trick for me was taking only 2 classes. Any more and I surely would have done worse. Good luck! I found i'm much more patient at this point. I also found on-line classes when available are the way to go for me and how I learn. We'll see how I do in an actual class this semester though.

Joe was on O'Reilly last night. As much as I dislike Bill O, I love the factor and yelling at the tv but sometimes Bill does ask great direct questions and he deserves some credit. Bill O' wanted to know how Joe was dealing with all of his investigations by the FBI and government. Joe ranted about how they have been investigating him for ethical treatment of prisonsers since last year. Bill followed up asking Joe what that investigation entailed and if it was making it difficult to spend time doing his Sheriff job....Joe paused, stuttered and then flat out said he wasn't cooperating at all at this point with the investigation. O'Reilly then chuckled and was all ' oh, is that right, you aren't cooperating with the federal government at all huh'. It definitely trivialized any opinion Joe had and made Joe look like an ass after ranting about how he wanted the federal governments help in this whole situation yet he's refusing to cooperate with them in any way.

If I find a youtube I'll post it in the immigration thread.

i'm doing some research today. i'll let you know what i find. i want something within stumbling distance preferably ;)

i'm going to go even if i can't get a ride, i'd just prefer not to go alone and also since i'm borrowing my parent's car, i don't want to push my luck. i may also be meeting with someone up there, but that's up in the air still.

*edit* gah, everything looks pricey, even the roadway inn is like $80 with a AAA discount. there's a motel 6 like less than 5 miles away that's only $55. i think i'm going to book that.

Or are you headed to San Tan Brewery with your daughter at 6pm, eating dinner, then heading with her to the All Star event at 7pm?

I gave a thought to it but I think I will have to hope for future dates closer to home and/or another shot at a weekend show within driving distance.

I normally would but there's already four shows and a festival I have to go to in October (Land of Talk, the National, Tim Fite, Jonsi plus Matador at 21.) That goes up to five shows if Emeralds is playing with Caribou. And on top of that we've also got Built to Spill, Frightened Rabbit and Sufjan Stevens all of which would be great.

i don't have a special bed frame or anything because i hate headboards. it's just one of those basic metal squares with wood boards that don't quite fit properly, so any sudden movement and they fall to the floor. it's also on risers. a few weeks ago the boards fell to the floor, so i needed to put it all back together properly before my bed completely fell apart. also, the floor underneath was in dire need of a good vacuuming & baseboard cleaning. not too exciting, but watching me try to put all of this back together by myself is generally hilarious.

Ivy, Treasure Island is dumb dumb dumb.

well, i would only be going for saturday with a girlfriend who really wants to see kruder & dorfmeister. i just wanna see little dragon and four tet, which would be WELL worth the trip. also, we have a friend in san francisco we'd like to stay with, so that would be fun too. i don't want to make a whole weekend of the festival, so i think i'll be ok. thanks for the tip :)

and sean, you were a trooper for coming over after moving!
