    Chikfila isnt anti WNBA. The support lesbians getting it on at mid court even though they have less than stellar baskeball abilites.

    They just dont think they should get married and stuff. Unless they marry a dude and donate money to the church then the couple can have orgies all the time and get drunk and stuff.

    I dont go to there becuase its in the hardest spot to egt in and out of, and to me it aint really that good.

    I say pha pho. It only keeps me full for less than 30 mins.

    speaking of sushi. I put a block of spam in my sushi roll last week with some pickled di-con radish and cooked watercress. It was one of my ways to get greens into my kid's stomach.
    crap, i forgot, I can't talk to you for the next 30 secs. I don't talk to Chick fila haters.

    Eh, not so much. Hubs and I took a little vaca down to NOLA before we got married, eons ago...and took a little class at the Cooking School down there. "Big Kevin" was a hoot. And he spent lots of time talking about a real roux....and showed us, over the course of cooking the Jamba, what a good one looked like. He said, basically, you had to have balls. Let it get a little brown.

    I still use his "recipe," but I've run out of his "seasoning." I've made my own from some internet thing.

    The REAL key, I think, is having enough "stuff" -- I use chicken, sausage and shrimp. Plenty of rice and diced (canned) tomatoes. And let it simmer, man, time cures what ails ya. Most importantly, ya gotta have some cajun power sauce. It's the local equivalent of Crystal Hot Sauce (instead of Texas Pete)..or in our area, Old Bay,...or whatever the hell ya use up there in MD. MoJo?!?

    Yikes. Hubs ate his portion (I had leftover Fideau, yum!) and I've already packed away what was leftover. I'll snap one next time it's out and on a plate.

    Let's not get into why he wasn't eating what I had and I was cooking "fresh" for him. He is normally a huge fan of whatever I concoct, even digressing into what we affectionately call primal grunting, but he's not in the mood for anything "strange" or "different" ATM. Sigh. So many cool things to try, but alas, the standard repertoire will have to suffice.

    How is Baby CB these days? How many weeks? Anywheres close to sleeping through the night?

    Jambalaya is my new favorite way to dispose of leftovers! Used to be fried rice or stir fry. Tomato base, thyme, various other spicies and a touch of heavy cream. Not authentic Im sure, but yum!

    it comes from NAM man, where it is hot and humid!

    aren't you supposed to eat hot and spicy food when its hot?
    makes you sweat and then you cool off or somethin?

    i dunno, all i know is pho75 was PACKED and i tried to order #6
    but they were out of "fat brisket".
    i also tried to order cha gio but was almost run out of their like
    the soup natttzi. "only noodle soups here pal!"

    but seriously only soup and they are out of the thing i ordered.. weak.

    the strawberry boba from next door was the bomb on a hot day though.

    I am sure the Jamba is excellent. You are an excellent cook.

    baby is doing well. (Unlike her parents...) my sleeping pattern is so messed up nowadays. So bad, sometimes I take a nap during lunchtime at work. Starting to sleep after 1am to 7am. Then using her lungs again for the next 14 hours.

    man i thought PG cops were rough... I guess border cops goes beyond catching illegals and contraband. But always two sides of every story. I'd like to see what was the evidence presented by the BP?

    Where is our TWMAC legal correspondence? @TC: didn't you say, you are a lawyer?

    What is three to discuss?

    The guy got stopped at a checkpoint the cops said the dog smelled something. When they asked him to get out of the car he locked himself in it and tried to talk himself out of it, only irritating the officers. The cop walked around the to the other side of the car and told him to close his eyes. They they tased him just like he deserved.

    Here is what would have heppened if I was in that cr.

    Cop "Sir, our Dog smelled something and were are going to have to search it. do you have any illegal aliens or drugs in the car?

    Me "no sir"

    Cop " we need you to pull into this area so we can search?

    Me "You know that really sucks, but sure I aint got nothing to gide"

    Then they tear car apart and waste 3 hours of my time.

    pretty refined sense of smell on that dog if it can specifically distinguish between US Citizens and aliens just by sniffing around a bit

    Also, I'm considering going back to a two handed backhand volley.

    Pros/cons of one handed bh volley vs. two handed bh volley.

    Less reach with the 2 hander but more stability. The 1 hander just looks cooler.

    Naturalized in 1965, which means he was as American as anyone when he hit the big time. Once an American, always an American, I always says. Unless you have Native American ancestry; then you can call yourself anything you want since it's really your continent. The rest of us are just squatters.

    You got the best; that man could do anything with a guitar. What a waste of talent.

    Later in the 70s, that Jesus-looking guy and Joe Walsh with the Eagles were pretty good, too.

    And good luck with that LSD or whatever thingie. :)

    Its ok!!! Really! Not even a bruise or a sore spot!

    But it was interesting to see...when we finally played two back, we got into points better. Me at the net doesn't exactly = best playing position for my partner and I. So that is our plan if we come up against a Downs clone!

    Speaking of which, the fact that you could peg me says just how well you are playing...most people can't do that off of my partner's serve! :shock:

    Uhhh, no... I'm not getting out.

    I was with a friend a few weeks ago and we were driving through Clarendon. Cop pulls us over and tells my friend (who was driving) that he made an illegal left turn even though we were going straight down Clarendon Blvd. He then tells my friend to get out of the vehicle. He refuses. Cop asks if he's had anything to drink. He refuses to answer. Cop goes over to another cop, he comes over and the pattern repeats. Finally my friend asks if we are free to leave and the cop says yes, so we drive away.

    No ticket, no anything.

    I'm not anti-law enforcement (having just left a job with the FBI) but cops count on citizens being either incompetent or scared when they try to force you to comply. I am neither of those things.

    The next week I'm at the MMA gym, and who do I see? The same cop. I struck up a conversation with him and he didn't even remember me.

    no way. wife would never suspect I use a lightning rod/ fancy alum cloth hanger as a racquet.

    is it true that folks string those extra tight? like in the 60 lb range? don't know how folks hit a ball with a hitting area of sap's expert mode toilet pic?

    LOL. When I last played with it back in the early 80s, I didn't know much about strings and tensions. I know it has a tremendous trampoline effect, and the one time I've hit with it recently (about 4 years ago at FRC), I had no trouble hitting the sweet spot again. Quite an experience, but no way would I want to go back that far.

    40, huh? That's about when I got serious about tennis - joined an indoor club and started playing year-round. Game took a big jump, then leveled out to basically what it is now, with better racquet technology making up for physical shortcomings.

    BTW, almost passed out on the court yesterday - 3rd time in the last 2 weeks. I think my body is telling me that in this heat wave (indexes above 105F every day), I'm good for maybe an hour before vital organs start shutting down. Bummer.

    Listening to some excellent sounds this a.m. - Santana, particularly. Nice, mellow Latino sound for a lazy Sunday morning.

    Again, Happy BD to a good bud. :)

    Hi, wife and I are 40, in Loudoun Co. I'm getting back the the game after being a decent player in high school. Wasn't good enough to make the college team however. I am introducing my wife and daughter to the game. (Trying to get my 5yo daughter hooked, lol)

    Sounds good momo! Still lots of fun. I took off about 9 years off from tennis too, after high school. Played football and basketball during those years. Really messed up my knee during those years, so now tennis is the only real sport I can play without killing it.
