My apologies

Real life has made blogging next to impossible this week. Hope to be back soon.

I thought this was your life. I'm so disappointed.

Note to self: examine this mystery termed "real life." Must gain perspective.

Looks like Surrounded in Columbus has been busy in your absense...

OOC,

Talk about your deer caught in the headlights.

Quick, someone coach him.

Joshua said...

I'd be up for coaching him, but based on my post count I think we all know my playboy-posturing is just that. Or that I'm not taking time off from work to get laid at least. Ah, the good old days- You know, back when I was 33 or so. Apparently all the women dry up when you turn 34.

Joshua said...

Ha! Check out the Illinois pic on the front page of ESPN. Looks like the guys shirt says "Orange Krust". Someone should tell him to clean that off and go to the clinic.

KG,
thanks, but it wasn't my doing. i would never try to get a tosu player to decommit by sending a fake letter saying tosu was taking away the offer.

when i send a fake letter supposedly from tosu, i always say that tosu is taking away the new car, the "no show" summer job, and cutting off the cash. that's what really gets them to look else where.

'Real Life'?? What's more real than feeding us vital info about Michigan Football!?

Get your priorities straight, man!

TitleIX said...

exactly...

real life?
we don't nee' no stinkin' real life!

Sgt. Wolverine said...

I thought Michigan football WAS real life. I am now extraordinarily disillusioned; thanks a lot.

Although since my real life features plenty of sports (of the high school variety), I probably shouldn't complain much.

Catie said...

I feel your pain Yost. My life is being consumed by the University of Michigan right now.......*sigh* if it were only UofM Football that was consuming me.....ahhhh well......only a few more months :o)

whetstonebuck said...

"when i send a fake letter supposedly from tosu, i always say that tosu is taking away the new car, the "no show" summer job, and cutting off the cash. that's what really gets them to look else where."

Else where as in they wander back to Michigan pouting.

TitleIX said...

whoa whoa whoa
hold the freakin' phone!

who hijacked 'our' Katie and made her into sexpot Catie?????
See what you started Mr. SiC puppy???

ya go and raise the bar like that, me and Brandi may have to call and go all in...

Catie said...

Shit...is it too much? ROFL. I was just having fun, figured my pic was a bit dated (my hair is so different now) I did the whole name change....I thought......well.....damn.....do you know how difficult it is to get a photo of yourself? Now I have to start over???? *SIGH*

whetstonebuck said...

"ya go and raise the bar like that, me and Brandi may have to call and go all in..."

Talk is cheap.

whetstonebuck said...

"do you know how difficult it is to get a photo of yourself?"

Not too difficult. Joshua says he took a bunch of you. Really, Katie, close the drapes.

TitleIX said...

No catie---don't change it! it's just soooo different from the other one.

it's good to recreate ones' self

personally, I vote for NO pic of yourself cuz their are creepy things lurking out there......

Catie said...

Not too difficult. Joshua says he took a bunch of you. Really, Katie, close the drapes.


Did you not get the memo??? I am Catie now :P

whetstonebuck said...

Okay, Sybil. Whatever you say.

surrounded in columbus said...

All I'm saying bout the new catie is the puppy's tail is a waggin'!

Catie said...

I say that you are an ass. Nice to know that I have that much say! Thanks! :o)

Catie said...

Thanks SIC! (I still might have to change it though, it really isn't quite my style!! )

whetstonebuck said...

SiC,

Uh, tail's on top, dude.

TitleIX said...

SHIT
now I am blank because I can't figure out which of the five zillion codes to use from photobucket to add a new pic to my profile

I was trying schwety really I was....

Catie said...

Yeah T9!! We want a new photo!!!

TitleIX said...

tech support anyone???

TitleIX said...

dammit
so I initially needed a boy to put a picture into my profile, and now I have screwed up my profile and can't figure out how to reset my picture alllllll because of a boy who called my bluff.
couldn't have that so here I am blank as a jaybird and PISSED because I have 3 freakin' higher education degrees and I can't figure out what to put in the stooopid web slot on the dashboard so it can link to photobucket and get the FIERCE HOT SEX-LADEN picture that I put there....

whetstone it is ALL YOUR FAULT!!! ;-)

Catie said...

Can you get the photo from photo bucket onto your desktop?? You don't need to link it any longer, you can simply upload it from edit your profile.....come on T9, I want to see your sexy photo!!!

whetstonebuck said...

whetstone it is ALL YOUR FAULT!!! ;-)


I'm your huckleberry.

Whoa Buckeye! I may be closer to our favorite women, but I'm not that close- I prefer texting landlines. (Sorry- inside joke, Sweatervest lovers need not apply)

And glad to know I'm not the only one who missed the memo- I thought I had developed sudden onset dyslexia for a moment.

"ya go and raise the bar like that, me and Brandi may have to call and go all in..."

Poker knowledge trumps math skills, just so you know. And who the hell is Brandi?

ps- my profile has been redone just for you girls. And a prelim Ninja Football header- opinions?

whetstonebuck said...

Ha! I knew you would surface after the drapes comment.

I was just about to compliment you on your maize and blue ninja, but you went and changed it to...???

What the heck is that?

Joshua said...

Maize and blue ninja with some artistic flair. If you click on the profile it gets better.

whetstonebuck said...

Are you sure that's not a hockey goalie?

Joshua said...

Ninja Football buddy-

Now that our new ninja-back has sent in his LOI, and since my blog has yet to debut, I feel linking to this is ok. Hilarious.

MCGUFFIE!

Catie said...

Joshua, T9 needs your help! She is TRYING to get a pic up!!!

The ninja works for ya, nice choice. (although it does sort of look like a hockey goalie...LOL)

Glass Knick Knacks.........ROFL



Whets......at some point in time.....long about the middle of the 2007 season, I must have said something wrong.....but you have only been annoyed by me ever since. I can't apologize for something I don't know I did, but certainly if I offended you, I would want to know and make it right. (aside from the your are an ass comment last night)

whetstonebuck said...

Catie, Katie, Catie.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Ouch. I'm sorry if I came across that way. Please, rest easy.

As for your new avatar; one word:

"Sultry."

Catie said...

Whets, Cool. I am glad it was just me misreading. Thanks for taking a moment to help straighten me out.

MUAH!

Out of Conference said...

What's Yost going to think when he comes back and sees his "sorry no time to blog" open mike thread gets more comments than his regular posts, the thread becomes a new avatar thread, CKatie let's the world seeKatie with her scrumptious new avatar, Ninjas are on the gridiron, and a Buck is apologizing to a Wolverine!
There's something strange afoot in the Circle K parking lot.

whetstonebuck said...

"There's something strange afoot in the Circle K parking lot."

OOC,

You get points for a Bill & Ted quote. I use that quote a lot and people just look at me. A classic.

Regarding all the bizarre happenings--look to the eastern sky.

Joshua said...

"There's something strange afoot in the Circle K parking lot." is right up there with "Have fun storming the castle!" on my list of most used. I always get funny looks for that, and it was always funny when I'd use it behind the bar in St. Thomas- all these tourists wondering if there's a castle on the island. *sigh* Some people are just so unlearned.

T, what's the issue with the avatar?

Joshua said...

Hey, you know what's always funny- when i use "always funny" in a sentence a lot. It wouldn't be always funny except it's almost always in fact, funny.

Here's to proofreading.

whetstonebuck said...

"Have fun storming the castle!"

Another classic, indeed! Man, I knew I had a home here. Great minds think alike.

"It's iocane powder. I'd bet my life on it."

Speaking of something funny, OOC pointed out my apology to Catie. However, look at the title to this thread. I was driven by an unseen impulse. Yost is working black magic behind the curtain.

Tom C said...

T9 said "personally, I vote for NO pic of yourself cuz their are creepy things lurking out there......"

Hey!I've been called worse!

whetstonebuck said...

Tom c,

Is that what the "c" stands for?

More stealth, my friend, more stealth.

Catie said...

Ohhhh guys.....check out this!!!

http://www.rivals.com/content.asp?SID=1014&CID=772625


Yeah...the University of Michigan.....#1 in players in the pros!! OSU is second ;o) (it might be that OSU needs to start getting used to that second place feeling behind NINJA Michigan Football!!!)

Bigasshammm said...

I have a pic of myself ___>

Catie said...

biggs......you look sooooooo yummmy.......(well...actually I am a vegetarian, so that is a lie, you don't look yummy. sorry...LOL)

whetstonebuck said...

"(it might be that OSU needs to start getting used to that second place feeling behind NINJA Michigan Football!!!)"

According to that article, we should be swapping places at the end of 2008. We are only six down and steadily taking over the Big 10. You know it's true.

Even farm teams pay their players. :o)

We are going to sendja ninja to the Capitol One Bowl.

Joshua said...

Anyone else read the article opn McGuffie being torn about going to Cal? Sounds like that's where he really wanted to go, but felt loyalty to the guys he helped recruit to A2. Gotta respect the kid for that, but I wonder if things don't go so well next year if he'll make it through the winter.

YAY! Wild speculation! So, uh, when's the season start?

Actually just neeeded to test the new avatar.

TitleIX said...

Thank the LORD, T9 is back!!!!!

joshua:
Brandi Chastain

Catie said...

Joshua, I like that avatar better!! The BIG house in the background....awesome!


T9, you are back, but you have not changed! *sigh* you are leaving me to flounder alone!

TitleIX said...

yeah....
and now I'm blank again because I got cocky and thought that I knew what I was doing and so I tried to keep up with 'cool' kids again and look where it got me....

I
will
never
learn


SIGH

Joshua said...

T,
I'm completely offended you'd think I didn't know who that was. A)It involves a major sporting event. B)It involves a woman taking her shirt off. Trust me, if there's anything that gains my focus, it's those things. I meant what was your issue with getting it back up?

(ed. note: I'm leaving that sentence as originally typed for hilarity's sake, i meant what problems are you having with the avatar not showing?)

Reports say Pryor is down to OSU and PSU. Ah well, bit of a morale hit probably, but not a lot more.
If that kid picks OSU he has no clue what he's in for- the pressure and the venom that'll come out of some of our fan-base (the drunken cousin in starter shorts and flip-flops contingent).

Catie said...

T9......You ARE the cool kid :o)

Catie said...

PS, if you get it up and I don't come by to comment for a day or so.......I have serious shit going on right now, involving a brother that we are ending life support for....on my way there now........so........I promise to come and find your new avatar when I am back .....a day or so.....don't disappoint me!!!! (LOL)

Peace.

Out of Conference said...

Catie - peace be with your brother as well as you & your family for what you're going through.

Catie said...

OOC, Thank you. My apologies for dumping that out there. I didn't think that one through.

Things are going well. Tomorrow we are ending the life support. I am grateful I arrived home in time to see him.

All is well. He is a good soul that will be at great peace!

TitleIX said...

words on a message board really don't convey the appropriate sentiment, but I must say that OOC nailed it exactly.

prayers and peace for you and your entire family.

Crock said...

thoughts and prayers are with you Catie
