Tell him he owes you $100.
I didn't make this connection, I had assumed $100 was approx. 25% of the rent. Even if you do agree with the fact that he should be able to rub off a weeks worth of rent, he owes you money. If $100 is about 40%, he pays roughly $250 a month. Gone for a week, he would only be able to knock off $60. That man owes you at least a keg.
Or several rounds of quality draft beer followed by a lap dance from a dark haired hottie.


And I have plans to repaint several rooms in my house later in December and he offered tonight to help paint for reduced rent (since he's done so many houses in the past). Can I get my money back in services?

If by "services" you mean "several rounds of quality draft beer followed by a lap dance from a dark haired hottie" then yes, you can get your money back in services.

I'm annoyed by the commercials for the show "Top Chef". They feature the host of the show saying "I love everything about food! Food excites me!". However, the host is a skinny woman who looks like she barely eats.

she could be one of those people with an obscene metabolism (that should die, btw :-p)

A friend of mine is like that - all she eats is junk (sweeties and baked goods) and food that's bad for you (pastas and red meats), yet she weighs like 80 lbs and never has a pinch of fat on her at all. She recent started going to the gym for her job (EMT), but before that she rarely (if ever?) went.

I'm the same way. I eat a lot of carbs and red meat and still stay pretty thin. On the plus side though, I have cut fast food out of my diet (finally) and I do play basketball every week. Oh, and I'm not a chick and I weigh way more than 80lbs.

That new Will Smith movie is called "pursuit of happyness"

I'm so confused--is this for a reason, or a genuine spelling error that they missed? Or something in between. If the latter, what's the "in between"?????
The autobiographical book the movied is based upon contains the spelling error. The main character taught himself to read and write, and apparently didn't have an editor.

I read somewhere that the word happiness is misspelled in the title because the main character saw it misspelled on a sign outside a daycare I think.

I have a friend whose the same way. She eats a candy bar every afternoon at work and drinks regular soda all day long and never gains an ounce. In fact, she doesn't work out because she says she's already too skinny and doesn't need to lose weight.

Have you noticed the portion sizes of top chef? You couldn't get fat eating things that little if you tried! [assuming, of course, that you couldn't just eat as many 'portions' as you wished, which is often the case here...]

Except for the night they made entrees for TGI Friday's. You could get fat on some of those.
