    And today is the suckiest. I was supposed to fly out to Kauai, HI this Thursday for work. However, because of some unknown issues the trip has to be cancelled. I'm hopeful that the trip will be rescheduled but that could literally be any time this year. My guess would be towards the fall. I was certainly looking forward to 5-1/2 weeks in Hawaii though... :cry2:

            Oooof! That's a nice island, very quiet/sleepy. Lot's of good surf and hiking. That's a shame!

              My first thought was the Newman one where he finds out he won't be getting the Hawaii transfer. But in hindsight I should've just gone with the classic you did.

                Thursday is really going to suck when it truly sinks in.

                  Are you saying Meth Mountain, Alabama isn’t as picturesque as Hawaii?

                    I don't know. I live in Jackson county and don't get over to Dekalb county very often...

                    And yes, I know that the county name where I live is racist... ;) But I don't care. I didn't name it...

                      Here we are at Tuesday and it already sucks as bad as Nalt’s Monday. Brand new package of socks and they shorted me one sock. Just as well, I’d lose it anyway. Could this day get any worse?

                        Just look behind your clothes dryer and I bet you will find the missing sock.

                        Oh, and missing one sock is comparable to missing out on a 5 week trip to Hawaii? :crazy:

                        Brand new package of socks. Doubt it’s behind the dryer. Yes, it socks but you are right that it’s not as bad as missing out on Hawaii. Sorry Nalt.

                        Look behind the dryer anyways. You might find a sock that matches anyways... ;)

                          I just wanted to stop by to say how sorry I am, @CDGator, to hear the news about your sock(s). Just a terrible story. And by far the worst thing I've heard so far this week.

                            Thank you, I really appreciate it.
                            These first world problems can really get a person down but I’ll press on.

                              If you can't bring Nalt to Hawaii, you bring Hawaii to Nalt.

                              Here's what you do, Nalt.


                              Get a grass skirt and a coconut bra for Mrs. Nalt. Or for yourself, who am I to judge?
                              [​IMG]


                              Put "Tora! Tora! Tora!" in the dvd player.
                              [​IMG]


                              Make yourself a fancy cocktail with a little umbrella. Pay yourself .$23.79 for making said cocktail (don't forget to tip 20%).
                              [​IMG]


                              And drink it poolside.
                              [​IMG]


                              Then get some aloe for your sunburn.
                              [​IMG]



                              Boom. You get the full Hawaiian experience and you never have to leave the comfort of home.

                              You're welcome.



                              Alex.

                                And then some Mondays are just absolutely wonderful. I rescheduled my trip to Kauai yesterday. Gonna be 34 glorious days on the Garden Isle minus the 10 days I will have to quarantine in my hotel room and of course the 15 or so days that I will actually be working... :dance:

                                But even those working days I will still have the afternoons/evenings to do something fun...

                                  Two weeks later and still no sock. :cry2:


                                  But I’m happy for you. Enjoy.

                                  So do you have a way to work remotely, or do you literally 'Netflix and chill' for 10 days?

                                      Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
