I'm thinking more like his father was. dont see how bob can promess that his father would buy him a car, unless his dad though bob would forget about it and said "OK".
My parents promised me a new car if I graduated high school with honors. I held up my end (barely). They didn't. I have not had a new car, ever.
There is a thread for this sort of whinery, but screw it, I'm here.
It didn't make my day awesome. But I am easy to please. I'm the wrong guy for this hobby.
What made my day awesome was when my 3-year old son, who was whining and crying about everything this morning, took a large dump and stopped complaining.
Both of them, obviously.
Dude, that was you?! Man, I thought we were just doing a threesome with some dude off craigslist!
My Dad. I was failing pretty astronomically (I had a 31% week ago) but my teacher is really awesome (or terrible, depending on how much you value your education), and goes above and beyond to get her students to like her. God bless the public education system. I now have a 71% after correcting some quizzes and doing some extra credit and finishing the half-completed homework I turned in. We have a test tomorrow and if I do well I could push it into the 80s.
I also sold my $100 LP that I never should have purchased, so I have a ton of money now (ton being subjective).
Pretty good week altogether.
So an ugly old crone [or old dottard] visits a wise old mystic seeking beauty.
The mystic thinks and then says: 'visit the shepard of the western hills and ask him to loan you the most attractive member of his flock. When you have tended it for a week look in the mirror again.'
But, nothing happens and the crone is sore vexed.
'Hm,' says the mystic. 'Go back to the shepard and ask him where his oldest female sleep lies down to sleep. Take wool it has shed from its coat and rub its natural lanolin on your face'.
That just gives the crone a rash, and she's really cross.
'Very well,' says the Mystic, 'I see the shepard's cures are too weak for you. Go to the ford where the barge man plies his trade taking cattle across the river and tell him I sent you.'
Grumbling at his useless advice the crone nevertheless does as he says.
She's crossing the river in the barge when suddenly a big animal on board it, turns and jabs her with its horns.
Now she's really angry, but as she steps off the barge she sees her reflection which is beautiful. Wishing to understand how this was done she returned to the mystic.
'Well,' he said, 'when beauty sheep failed, and oil of Ewe-lay couldn't help. There was simply nothing for it but a boat ox injection.'

Ordered my Brainwavz M4 on 1st January, been frantically checking SingPost with my trace-code since then, to no avail. But now, FINALLY, it shows up!
Only thing is... It's only been despatched today? Arf, I would've assumed that happened 5 days ago when they said it was 'mailed'. God, this is gonna take long.
I'll talk about yesterday because I forgot.
First new episode of MLP in almost a month, and it was great. Then I spent the rest of the day watching a livestream of a MLP convention in New York, which had a really fantastic interview session with three voice actresses and another with the composer of the songs. Best day ever.
Yesterday and today I played Pokemon Sapphire on an emulator with an HD filter and an xbox 360 controller. The frameskip feature is awesome, it speeds the game up to 8-9 times the normal speed, so no waiting. I managed to play 58 hours of pokemon in just over ten.
We did that last august and got last place.
