    doing the fried egg, kimchi and rice thing at home for the next month.
    Getting buyer's remorse after buying half a tub of kimchi yesterday at Grandmart. Don't know what to do with so much Kimchi. Sad thing is I am the only one that eats it.

    Reasons Topaz lost last night:

    1. strings
    2. it was dark, seriously dark...upstairs at Regency. I blame this for every single mishit
    3. I played a junk baller who didn't know she was supposed to put the ball in my strike zone
    4. No sleep
    5. No food!!!

    I think that should suffice! ;)

    FYI - one time Zap mentioned he went to the grocery to buy shampoo and hot dogs. We thought that was a weird combo and thus was born the "shampoo and hotdog" moment inside joke on TWMAC.

    I think it was a bit weirder than that. Someone pull up the post, but I think it was during the heavy snowstorm and the poster asked if anyone needed stuff from the store. Zap replied hotdogs and shampoo. So the legend grew.. or lack of something grew.. doh!

    Hollywood/Sap.. can you find the post?

    p.s. I sent a nike wristband to someone from TW today and I made sure to have delivery tracking on it.. did not promise a delivery date.. and made sure the money was sent to me before the wristband went. Oh and that the person wasn't named Zapvor. lol jk

    Apparently, it is bad karma to discuss ankle/foot injuries in public. My wife fell on the attic staircase this morning and broke her left foot. She is okay; it's a simple metatarsal fracture, no surgery needed, but still...

    No more health discussions from this kid on a public forum.

    HW, I just entered you in an Elvis impersonation contest. Anyone want to chip in on the jumpsuit? ;-)

    If Sup comes, he can be Johnny Cash or Roy Orbison. Dats can be The Killer, Jerry Lee Lewis.

    P.S. Still time to enter the speed serve contest.

    Its pretty easy to do an advanced search. It didnt take very long.

    It took me longer to find another site that had the bicycle race video from revenge of the nerds.

    http://www.evtv1.com/player.aspx?itemnum=8748

    1:05 is the good part and was pretty much what I felt TFM (God rest his soul) would have said. Plus that Daichi Bell song playing in the background is pretty sweet.

    Alright then, I stand corrected...replace 'scare' with 'impress'.

    LMAO at TFM (God rest his soul)

    Knowing TFM, he might be sweating it out someplace else!!! :twisted:

    Thanks to PaulMan for putting up with my crappy hitting. Seriously, almost felt like throwing the racket a one point.

    Never tried the Res2, but of course those got rave reviews. And I think you owned between 5 and 10 pairs yourself, right? I owned the Challengers that came out when the Res2's came out. Had to return them because they weren't good fits for me feet. Unfortunately, that what steered me away from Asics.

    Australia is tennis-loving, but a lot of it is club membership type of things. But I've met some good hitting partners that are working me really well! If only I could find a racquet!

    I believe it is now the GOATchop :)

    I went to hibachi sushi supreme buffet fir lunch, the sushi was actually much better than expected. Better tgan tysons or citylite. Lunch was 10 bucks but they charged 2 for soda which didn't make sense as the more we drink, ghe less we eat.

    good seafood selection. the rice/sushi ratio was pretty decent for all the rolls. a lot of fried stuff but fried well. also had kalbi and asparagus to my surprise. dinner cost would of been $20 (as opposed to $10 for lunch) and i can't image what else they can throw in there.
