...a boy, and a douche at that.

A woman, and one who happens to like things you don't. The nerve of me.


Unpossible. Only frat boys [pretend to] like that stuff.

You don't drink Jäger because you like it. You drink it because it's nasty, and men drink nasty things.

Originally this was also true of bourbon, until it became sissified through aging and other such boutique endeavors. Its true nature is of Scots-Irish lifeblood, the stuff of rebellion against "what have you got?"

Gyrfalcon: We had a very unusual heat wave this summer in So Cal (bizarre enough, but okay). The hardware store across the street must have run plumb out of fans, because they had a big sign posted "WE HAVE FANS" on days when they were stocked. It came down when they ran out. I recall thinking WTF? This is Southern California! It gets into the high 90's every summer! Are you just now noticing that you need fans? Have you been hot and sweaty for the last ten years? Why wait till it's 110 degrees before deciding "Uh, Mabel? Pick up a couple window fans when you're at the market next time, it's a tad warmish."

And yeah, snow prep. When I lived at Lake Tahoe, you kept a shovel, a parka, and a bag of sand in your car year-round. Usually at least a box of granola bars and some water too.


When I lived in San Diego I pretty much ended up buying one fan a year.  Either I had just moved out there and didn't bother packing a fan, or a previous roommate had taken the one I bought the previous summer when they had moved out, or I had moved and forgotten to grab it out of the garage, or it had fallen out the window since I had last really needed it so I just put off buying another.  Having one just wasn't a priority, and once I bought one because I was feeling lazy and didn't want to dig through a storage unit that was 25 miles away when I was already at a store that had them in stock when it was 95 degrees out.

When it's something that's really infrequently used, you just kind of forget about keeping one around.  I doubt I could find a shovel in my house right now if it started snowing only because I've moved since it last snowed here.  If I saw one for sale at a store I was at anyway I'd probably just buy one if it was under $10.  Maybe I'd end up with two shovels, or maybe I left my old shovel in the last place's basement.  I dunno, might as well just grab one.

It's not the best excuse, but sometimes it's easier to just buy a new whatever that you rarely use than spend a few hours finding the cheap one you bought last time this happened.
