    Let me give you a brief summary of my last 8 hours.

    I found a really nice bunk bed and desk/chair set. I borrowed my sisters truck plus my father in law and his truck to go get the thing.

    It looks great. It's like one of those things that you'd loved to have had when you were a kid. I shelled out the $ for it. It's sort of an early Christmas gift. Of corse my daughter was broken hearted, so I had to go get her a Dora the Explorer bed. Yea, I know.... the freakin spanish speaking carton thing. I used to like that show until I began hating the Spanish language since it's being shoved down my throat everywhere I go.

    Okay, back to the story. So, I drive 30 minutes or so and get the bed. I make a wrong turn somewhere and end up in a 45 minute detour. So I'm pretty ticked off by now. I almost hit two deer that decide it's a cool idea to play Frogger w/ me. :roll_eyes:

    I began putting the bed together. I was having some major problems. I didn't know wheter to cuss or cry. So I did what any smart redneck guy would do: I began to look for liquor. I'm not much of a beer guy, or any other alcohol as far as that goes. I did have (notice I said DID) 8 or 9 Mikes Hard Lemonaide in the fridge. I also had some homemade Strawberry wine. I found out that either I'm getting really good at putting bunk beds together, since I'm on my 3rd try or that they go together much easier once you have some alcohol in you. :crazy::big_smile::big_smile_2:

    Here is a pic of the nightmare. Of corse this is NOT what it looks like in my house. This is a stock photo of the bed.

    I'll post a pic of what mine looks like when (IF) I ever get it done! :smile2: I'm expecting some differences.

    Update:

    It's 4AM, I have to be at work in 3 hours. I'm going to bed. (And no.... it's not done yet.) :angry:

    So I see.

    Flathunter dont care about breaking your little girls heart before X-mas. :sad2:

    You sent up the BOC signal, he saw the signal, and then no response.

    There should have been tires squeeling into your driveway from where Flathunter was there to help :angry:

    What do you think Mellon should be done to reclaim your honor? :confused2:

    You taught him to fish, run a trot-line, and survive off the land, you have given Flathunter everything you can! Help with a nightmare bunk divided into the tools you have taugh him for survival are a small price.

    Boycott!

    Boycott!

    ¿El melón, cuál es la materia con español? Es una gran lengua cuando está hablado en sus áreas nativas. Es terrible cuando usted oye que él de los extranjeros ilegales y de las compañías que es abastece a ellas.

    Melon, what's the matter with Spanish? It is a great language when spoken in its native areas.
    It is terrible when you hear it from the illegal aliens and the companies that's caters to them.


    Also remember, since the bed is made with metal tubing, the use of a sledgehammer is perfectly acceptable to make the pieces fit.

    I also know what you mean. I wont let my daughter watch dora or some of the other cartoons. She shouldnt have to learn another language due to that races ingorance. English is the national language. If you cant speak it, you shouldnt force others to learn yours. Im 2nd generation American. I follow my grandparents train of thought. That you should speak the language of your country. this doesnt mean to foresake your heritage.
    If I gain citizenship in brazil. should I expect them to print everything in english or should I learn to speak portuguese? Hmmm....

    Scott not dissing on you but there is no "national" language. I agree with you to a point tho and I understand what your saying. My Wife and I teach my kids spanish and german (she knows spanish a little and I know german a little). For one it feeds them with a desire to know more about the world (at least I think so) and it doesnt bottle them up for later in life that they would know only one language.

    Could they speak in spanish or german, no but if it gets them to learn it better or another language at that then they are one up on the next person that doesnt know it. Nothing wrong with knowing more than one language.
