The Good and Bad News Thread

Post by Chris Silver »

Anybody have a good and bad news moment you want to post?

Is there something that happened today that sucked but had a bright/awesome side as well?

Bad News: I was supposed to be off work until January, but one of our planes $H!T the bed so I head back to my hotel room in Montreal Wednesday.

Good News: I get to go to Starburst and see Robert!!! I have some trinkets for my Space Station to pick up. He's always great to run into on my lunch hour. What an awesome job he has. It's like "Hey Rob. I need one of these" and then like "No problem! Its in one of these billion drawers behind me that's full of pinball candy" or "No problem! I can have it here next week before you head back home". (Well that's not exactly what he says, but that's what I see) ;)

More Good News: I'll also be making some extra Christmas money for the kids and maybe get myself a little something this year. :D

The Good News Rob Ford has started the first step of his recovery. Just 11 more steps to go.

The Bad News, snoozing on the job gets you fired, but being in a "drunken stupor" gets a pass.

The Really Bad News, it's not over, it's just begun. (Think Lisi extortion charge trial exposes the "Boss" behind video retrieval tactics.)

The good news is the thread is on fire.

The bad news is your trying to get paid from a bunch of us cheap as shit pinball guys.

When I saw them at ACC they filled the place which I expected but while there people were saying Sabbath was one of the few bands able to do that these days. I rarely go to concerts anymore but I found that comment questionable.
