Soooo glad I'm not as miserable as you are. Does this perspective permeate everything in your life?

I went from being a grunt to the HNIC w/in 2 years of getting my eMBA from LSU.
| O-T Lounge|| re: How did you meet your wife/girlfriend? - GusMcRae on 1/5/15 at 7:13 pm|
Acquaintances in high school. I thought she was hot... she admired my butt. I did not have the chest to try to date her, and had other action & interests.
She made the mistake of going to college at Bama, I finished at LSU. We met up at "the strip" in Lafayette a year or two later. Mutual fri...

This place is fantastic. They make EVERYTHING from scratch. When I say everything, I mean they raise their own water buffalo so that they can make their own buffalo mozzarella. They had their friggin stone pizza ovens shipped from Sicily.

Y'all just need to try harder. I never get hangovers at all anymore. Sometimes I'm a little tired, but that's it. I drink every night, so whatever.

| O-T Lounge|| re: Anyone Have Experience Living in the Texas Panhandle? - GusMcRae on 12/27/14 at 8:29 am|
I lived in San Angelo for 8 years. That's not panhandle, but my kids athletics gave reason for us to be up in the panhandle pretty regularly.
Our high school football district included Amarillo and Lubbock. We had to travel 6 hours for some of our away games, if you can believe.

I think Telluride is the coolest town in CO. It's the best ski town, and is even a blast in the summer. Awesome nightlife, great wining/dining.
It's a great ski mountain, but not always consistent snowfall.
You can fly into Montrose, CO, which is only an hour away, but with added expense. I...

Had a bottle of chard with breakfast crepes and presents, couple of IPA's through lunch hour, made old fashion at the little lady's uncles... Those seemed sweet, so switched to scotch/rocks. The meal was served, and there were some very high end cabs, so didn't want to miss out. Had a few glasses ...
| Tiger Rant|| re: Have some of you finally learned your lesson about making absolute assumptions? - GusMcRae on 10/26/14 at 10:23 pm|
When we won our first Naty, I sat in the dome and cried like a baby. I said I would never care again.
Maybe I was wrong, but I'm not as hard on the program as I used to be. What I do know is last night was a hella good time, and I had lots of reb alums with me to harass.
Hotly toddy, down th...
| Tiger Rant|| re: How was the atmosphere in the stadium? - GusMcRae on 10/26/14 at 7:07 pm|
The old gray lady came out of her slumber last night. Death Valley re-asserted itself as the pre-eminent sports venue in college football.
No other fan base can claim that they can affect the outcome of a game more so than a tiger fan. Last night was epic. I've attended most home, many roads, ...

[quote]Arc'teryx makes some really good ski clothes- lightweight and less cumbersome than some other brands, but still keeps you warm. There's a price to be paid for it, but if you look around you can find last year's stuff for a decent discount. [/quote]

If we beat Auburn, Florida, Kentucky, and Ole Miss in a row. This board would go crazy with optimism and rightfully so. Everyone would look at the State game as a fluke. I don't see it, but stranger things have happened.
You, sir, are a genius...

I don't know... I have it on business cards and some of my auto-email sigs, but I have an undergrad in health care. For people in health care administration, sometimes it is relevant that you have a clinical background and some business training.
That being said, I never include it in written c...
| O-T Lounge|| re: What's your goal in vacationing? - GusMcRae on 9/22/14 at 5:43 pm|
I mostly like activity based vacations... ski trips are my number 1.
However, family routines include beach trips. On beach trips I'm fairly regimental: set up canopy, ice chest detail, sound system, hard core all day, dinner prep, etc. I'm gonna squeeze all the fun out of it as possible.

Stadium is great... Sat next to TGBFTL.
Quit selling beer to soon... Was packing, so whatever.
Light rail from Lil Woody's pre-game was a nightmare. Some awesome dude picked us up after the game cuz we looked so miserable roaming the streets looking for a train station. He did not rape us, a...

I can't keep my hands off them. They've actually improved over time.
| O-T Lounge|| re: What Food do you miss the most from Louisiana? - GusMcRae on 6/22/14 at 10:02 pm|
I lived in W. Tex for 10 years and could replicate most everything, and even live crawfish were accessible, but oysters... shucked, unshucked, pasteurized or whatever were universally disgusting.
Tank gawd, I'm within 30 minutes of Shucks again.
