    i think it might be from "shake-weight overuse" if ya know wut i mean! :oops::shock:

    sheet man, i dunno. we could shoot some guns, shoot some hoops, and shoot some heroin. sounds like a full day to me! or we just hit up the rei clearance rack and go get jamba juices and maybe a mani-pedi. i dunno. wuteva u prefer

    wut time are u thinkin bout? lately ive been staying up til 4am and not getting up before noon. but with advance notice i can adjust that a little bit.

    great, I better get to the line before sap does. It's going to be like the Sahara after sap goes through round 1 although I can't say there will be much behind after I am done as well.

    I think it'll be the first time an entire association gets banned from a buffet place.

    Well, I had forgotten about it too. But I was out walking my dog and saw a bunch of dudes in jeans and brown flip flops all walking in that general direction.

    I really only have 2 active wives. My Prince Graduate wife is not putting out (ahem, the groundstrokes I like). Thought I exciled her to a life of hanging car keys on a wall, but she was spotted and now reinstated as wife #3.

    Need to use Paulman's services since he's our TWMac Racquet Plastic Surgeon with his hacksaw. Or from previous posts, need to put Paulman's hacksaw in the hand's of down's.

    I sense there will be a good episode in the next upcoming episode of Racquet Masterpiece Threatre.

    Sit close, but not too close. If you can seat yourself, don’t pick a table too far from the action. Even a little bit of walking will contribute to your fatigue levels. At the same time, don’t sit two feet from the food stations because all those smells will hit you at once and wreak havoc on your olfaction.

    First stop: meat. The ham, beef, and chicken will likely be tucked away in the far corner from where you’re seated, but that should be your first target. Soups, breads, pastas, and rice are simply road blocks intended to fill you up quickly and save the restaurant money


    Your beverage of choice: nothing. Drink as little as possible. Liquids take up space in your stomach that could be better used for food. If you must, pour yourself a half glass of water and take a sip after every plate–just enough to cleanse your palate for the next round.

    Second stop: meat. Seriously, load up on meat if you want your money’s worth. At full-service carving stations, let the carver keep loading your plate until it’s full of dead animal. Don’t be tempted to shove some mashed potatoes on the side to fill the gap in that plate.

    Third stop: meat. Or maybe seafood. Just don’t fall for those generic-looking white fish fillets you’ll sometimes see. They usually taste terrible and are cheaper than tender slices of beef.

    Fourth stop: something else. If you’re still eating after downing a few pounds of pork and poultry, you’re probably close to breaking even. Feel free to sample some of the other wares.

    Bread should still be a no-no because it’s dirt cheap and will fill your tummy faster than you can say “I gotta puke.”
    Take a break. Now is probably a good time to break out that book and pause for a bit. Avoid the temptation to down a mug of soda. The only digestive aid you should use right now is time.

    Fifth through ??? stops: victory! Once you’ve gotten your money’s worth, it’s time to celebrate your win. Grab a brownie, smother it with ice cream, toss on every topping in sight, and top it all off with a big slice of roast beef. Mmmmm.

    Case Study: Chinese & Japanese Buffets

    asian buffetsMenu: Sushi, General Tso’s Chicken, and a whole lot of other stuff I can’t pronounce.
    Price: Under $10 for lunch, $12-15 for dinner.

    Overview: There is some yummy food to be had at the various types of Asian buffets. You’ll find some of your favorite items from the classic Chinese carry-out menu along with some other… surprises.

    Strategies for getting your money’s worth:

    *Eat what you like. It’s not too hard to get your money’s worth at these places. As always, shoot for the meat, but feel free to feast on sushi and other pricey items. Foods to avoid: spring and egg rolls, soups (except miso soup, which is too tasty to pass up), and dishes composed of mostly vegetables.

    *Don’t try new things. Buffet time, despite its limitless food supply, is not the time to experiment. You might think that big white puff ball thing is a delicious pastry, but when it takes you two hours to chew it, you might quickly lose your appetite.

    *Beware of the desserts. They look weird for a reason–because they taste weird, too! Those sheets of cake and bite-sized cookies might look appetizing, but they’re often very dry. Soft-serve ice cream is hit or miss at Asian buffets, but it’s probably your best bet for dessert.

    Oz, happy annual day of remembrance of your birthing! woot
    i am still on my quest for the ultimate auzzie-beating-stick. but to celebrate
    i will take 24hrs off. (or to rest my wrist)

    geez after 1 minute on court it seemed i had thrown out the Prestiges (mid ((too demanding)) and mp ((seemed sometimes too flexy, sometimes too powerful, and sometimes too tinny))and the WilProStaff95((hit some great shots and serves but sweetspot seemed tiny)).

    the igSpeed is just like i remember it. so easy to swing even with bum wrist and has both power and control. me lurves it. :) it was strung with multi too and it was still nice. i still like my blxproopens too cuz it has mega power and spin but you can launch it if you aren't "on" and it seems a little harder on my wrist.

    i dunno. hard to demo racquets when nobody is on the other side of the court. doh!

    Sap, sure dood. i crush you with IG Speed! crush crush!

    ok, i might have been watching too much tv, but does anybody have a review of the doritos loco taco or the cantina bowl? discuss. how much is it compared to chipotle? i've got less FUNds than zapvor right now. so my dining options are extremely limited!

    Edit: just found out I'm babysitting Thursday night. But I'm free Wednesday evening. Sigh.....
