    Yeah, it's definitely sweet.

    BTW- you got Black Ops 2 on Pre-order? I'm thinking about it, but even if I do get it, I won't be able to play it much right now. Nothing is worst then watch a new game you really want to play collect dust. :(

    @JRStriker Didn't get it either. I figure I can get it cheaper than $48 (cheapest I can find so far) in a couple of months. But I am on your boat as well. Don't really have much time to play. I'll get my tush beaten up by teenies anyways regardless whether I am playing on Day 1.

    @zap yep. half price food by the lb line. Instead of $8/lb it's $4/lb. But then I usually just get salad anyways, so they are still making a ton of money from me regardless. Like Downs say, I am paying $4 for a lb of lettuce.

    DON'T FORGET TO VOTE, EVERYONE!

    Saw that, problem is I have no time to play Halo 4 (see reason I may not get Black Ops 2)... guess I could resell the game and still beat $48 for XBL, but I know I'll play it a few times if I get it home. Hmmm.... so tempted...

    Free bracelet from Starbucks?!?! Lame. I was there with my voter sticker and they didn't offer me jack!

    Blockbuster? Last one in my hood closed down about 2 years ago.

    Wish I was near one Einstein Bros or one of the Taco joints...

    No thanks, if he did started playing, he'll kick my butt already.

    Go to Chik Fila. Get free chk sandwich! But I heard some of the chains takes your sticker away so can't get it a second time.

    congrats JRK. he has very large paws. i'm thinking he's the next delpo.

    also why didn't anyone tell me that a SSD+560ti would bring me so much happiness for only a few bills?

    lunch was a toasted chicken panini, kettle chips and a coca-cola. i've been seeing what happens if i stop drinking diet soda. so far i'm noticing more flavor and i haven't turned into a balloon. but it's early.

    I think he can already use a 4 5/8 grip plus overgrip like his old man. Hopefully he'll play tennis, Rio has already given it up in favor of tutus, princess crowns, and magic wands <sigh>.

    Congrats JRK! I will buy you a beer when u are next allowed to leave your home and I am also available. (probably never be redeemed...har) I think lack of sleep has taken its toll on me. I have this twitch in my right eyelid that hasn't gone away in weeks. Fark! But I am watching Ferrer/Delpo with warm baby on my lap so it aint all bad.

    Maybe tennischemist finally got the nerve to talk to the gal on the bus (that was him, right?).

    Don't drink soda at all!!!! And regular soda is just sugar + chemicals...soooo bad for you! Don't end up in the hospital one day with diabetes...the nurse who sticks you with needles and shoves meds up your butt might be ME!!!! :twisted:

    Hi Zap, yea, I haven't even been lurking lately. Work has been killing me. Things should be a little lighter for a bit.

    No, Ive still been playing. Currently deciding which I like better out of BHB7 and Genesis Typhoon. The Typhoon feels amazing, but I feel like I have more control with the BHB7 at the same tension. I did get a Wise tension head awhile back too and that was worth every penny.

    The brake on my machine (Alpha Blu) is all messed up though. A guest was stringing the the handle assembly came off and I haven't been able to set it back up correctly since. I don't really use it, but if there are any TWMACers that are experts on Alpha machine disc brakes, I can offer beer and tennis string for assistance :)

    Yeah, the lack of sleep thing is a killer, although Rio never slept either (and still doesn't) so I haven't really slept since 2010. I'm convinced that adults only really need 3-4 hours of sleep max. I got 3.75 hours in last night and I feeeeeel Greeeaaattt!

    geez.. wuts ur secret? massive doses of caffeine? i have to take care of baby all by myself from 2-8 today. sometimes 6hours can feel like 24. i hope she takes a nap or 2 this time. its too cold to be outside walking around.

    ~~~~~~~
    guess i wasn't that good of "friends" with people on FB afterall. after some of their whacky political posts,
    all i did is post a youtube link to a 2second simpons video of nelson going HAHA! and now i have less friends today.
    weird!

    Anyone playing on Monday? It's a holiday and it's going to be in the 60's...

    On a side note, i just put an extra overwrap on my Ki5x. It feels alot ligher now. Maybe PK grips run smaller?

    IMHO you reach a level of a lack of sleep where feeling great is part of the delusion.

    I was working on my Masters when we had Bri. Looking back, not sure how I did it. Mostly had starbucks on an IV drip.

    your time will come wookie. you just have to wait for the little ones to get out of diapers and in preschool/kindergarten. plus misery loves company so you and dats and JRK can commiserate.

    is it really going to snow? i've got mixed practice with topaz tonight. i don't want her shoving anything up my rectum.

    rectum? damm near killed him.

    Last time I checked, JRK was still playing Halo 4 ;)

    We need a TWMAC kids mini-meet + food and baby sitters.

    Last week - Got pushed from the 4.0/4.5 drill to the next court over which is solid 4.0 with a mix of 3.5 - (I was sneaking in to fill in empty class slots- the instructor is cool- but the class was full last week) man funny how seeing a junky 3.5 ball after seeing clean, well-hit 4.5 ball can throw you off.
