| 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...

Mine got hers, going on three years ago. She looks and feels awesome.
I can't keep my hands off them. They've actually improved over time.

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.

Well, jeez... You are an expert.
Sounds like it is one pay grade above the mass produced store brands... middle of the pack of the second tier.
Any idea what the oven control settings are? The indicators are symbols that must make sense to euros. :usa:...
