Debt Consolidation Rep Calls Hank Hill

A rep from a debt consolidation company called looking for Hank Hill. I put on my best Hank Hill (from the TV show King of the Hill) impression and went along with the scam. The rep asked how I was doing and I lauded the recent accomplishments of the Trump administration which got an uncomfortable laugh out of the rep. The rep then asked me about unsecured debt, which I compared to a dog on the loose.

Randomly, I asked the rep if he was the boy who had been "whackin' in my toolshed" which was a callback to Mr. Anderson from Beavis and Butthead which is the same voice as Hank Hill. I then proceeded to confuse the word "debt" with "dog" and talked a bit about my dog, Ladybird. The rep eventually had enough and decided to hang up

Marvel's Spider-Man PS4: Taking Out A Sable Base With Stealth

I'm still getting quite a kick out of playing Marvel's Spider-Man on the PS4. I'm far enough into the game where Silver Sable's agents have taken over various parts of the city. As part of the game's progression, the Sable Bases must be taken out in every section of the city. I uploaded a video of me taking out the first wave of Sable agents at a Sable Base using stealth techniques like the web take down, the perch takedown and the generic stealth takedown.

Dick Pond Athletics

I was up in the north suburbs earlier this week for a 5K and decided afterward that I was in dire need of some proper running shoes. The cheap shoes I had been wearing just weren't cutting it, and were probably damaging my already messed up knees. I decided to stop at Dick Pond Athletics in St. Charles, IL.

What an unfortunate name for a store, right? Despite my giggling at the name and making several snarky comments under my breath to my companion, I actually had a very good experience at the Dick Pond. The Dick associate measured my feet, had me walk on a treadmill to measure my gait and then presented me with a few pairs of shoes for me to try out. I exited the Dick Pond satisfied with my purchase and ready to run in my next 5K with proper equipment.

Student Loan Forgiveness Scammer Calls Me

When I went to college, I didn't take out any student loans. So, I fail to understand how some company can call me and offer to help me get them paid down. Maybe they're just cold calling and hoping to get someone who has student loans in arrears.

Anyway, I got this telemarketer on the line and was surprised that she was actually an American. After going through the motions of determining my eligibility for the program, I told her that I got kicked out of college for indecent exposure. She ended the call abruptly after that.
