    one of the members of kris kross died yesterday. not sure if it was kris or kross but either way - kinda sad. these guys were kids back when i remember them. i also blame them for making me dress like a moron back in 1990-something. like i needed help dressing like a moron. RIP dood.

    It will feel like 3 courts on League tennis nights Wed and Thursday.

    Oh and I'm sure Manny will be a bit freaked when he sees you on all the courts in a single night- LOL!

    Remember, courts change on the hour if you're playing singles and someone is waiting. Any you can get kicked if you start 10 minuted before the hour starts.

    I'm also just down the Road in Herndon if you want to hit.

    Dad sold his house in Reston before moving to South Carolina recently. Dude basically bought it without seeing it, had a trusted Real Estate agent pick. I think they got a decent price for it - sold fast!

    sounds like Mr. han's sister. maybe he has a even younger sister awaiting in the wings to learn their family secret of haidoken spin serve to her opponent's nut sack. i don't imagine she'd play in the female league.

    Do CAPS fans really do this?

    It seems wierd that they would steal the Jets of all teams rally cry.

    In hindsight I think buying a place is over rated. If you can afford rent in the area you live do that... if you can't, then you buy.

    Caps looked good last night although I only saw the highlights because of school... I was also getting text message updates from Sup while in class.

    Wife is putting in orders for San Diego... if she gets them I'll have to sell all of my guns, ammo, plate carriers, etc. TWMAC members get a discount. No sale to Maryland folks, sorry your commie state won't let you have guns.

    RIP Chris (Mac Daddy) from KrissKross... I never wore my pants backwards but I think I did braid my hair.

    Except for the "Vamos" part.

    Yes. They do.

    Classic moments with JRK: Going to a Caps game with him where a kid sitting behind sneezes coke all over his back.

    Re Caps: They looked sloppy in the beginning. I will text you as much as I like.. until you change your number.. fall off the grid.. and hit a kick serve properly/consistently.

    Re San Diego: Super Awesome. One of the few places I would move too without hesitation. I don't tease those from San Diego about the weather in Florida. I will visit for sure when I'm in L.A.. Do you have an inventory of your guns and ammo? I'm stockpiling for the zombie apocolpyse. I'm searching for an asian member of the clan, and hope Sappy applies.

    Must be able to:

    -Play guitar
    -Wear a baseball cap 90% of the time
    -Date the farmers daughter
    -Hot wire cars
    -Be called "Glenn"..
    -Find delicious places to eat even when the world has shut down.
    -Be the "Ottis" if being chased

    Caps game was great last night! Ovie came out targetting defensemen right off the bat. Eric Fehr and Olesky were the heroes of the game to me though. Lots of fight in this team this year.

    Sup- I doubt Ill get to any of the games live, but Ill be watching them all.

    Also, getting older sucks. My wrist and shoulder are about to fall off from two leagues. Do you guys all do rotator cuff excercises? I need to start apparently.

    So went to the track today:

    Went- 4 for 7

    Winners came when i bet the middle gates and the highest odds.

    Losers came when I went for gold and picked the best odds outside of the middle pack.

    Then I read that itsmyluckyday did well on sloppy races. Then I heard 50% chance of rain for the derby.

    is it time to drop the hammer? $1k?

    *burp*

    LOL! I guess so.

    It's separated, not dislocated. Soccer injury. Playing goal keeper, slid in on a break-away. Made a save. Got up threw the ball and.... hey why does my arm feel funny?

    Worst part, driving a car with a manual transmission the next day. *shift- OUCH!-*shift- OUCH!-*shift- OUCH!........

    ----

    BTW - Lunch. Grilled chicken burritos with fresh pico.... yum...

    it took 200 ugly attempts...

    but i think i remember how to serve again.
    i think i was just arming the ball and not using my abs or legs enough.
    we'll see next time i play a match cuz i often serve great in practice
    only to blow it when points count. (especially match point... oy)

    bought some strings... natty gut, blackcode,weiss b5e,cyclone.

    i want to play with either maxim touch or gut mains but sometimes i need the low power and spin of full poly once a match starts. hopefully i can figure this out... SOOON.

    p.s. - i know we're all gettin older but ovechkin looks like he aged 10 years in last 2. very strange. go CAPS!

    There was a very lively debate a few years ago on TTW about whether black code and B5E are the same string. I would be curious to see what you think.

    had my outing with the q15 for the second time. loving this racquet for lazy mode tennis.

    since I am using a more "mature," racquet, does this I get qualify for discount rate for twmac?

    What's for Lunch today? Going back to Bangkok Golden for Vegetarian Buffet.

    So addicted to Larb. Made it this weekend. Let me know if anyone is interested in making. It's rather easy. All is needed is grilled chicken breast, veggies, ground rice powder, simple south asian sauce mix.

    lime juice, 3 crab fish sauce, sugar. I put some minced galangal in there too. But that's really optional. That's my magic sauce. It's the basics of a universal south asian dipping sauce, Bun, rice crepes, etc etc.

    morning TWMAC.

    CB - lime juice, fish sauce, sugar. that's in pretty much everything. it's like the holy trinity in cajun cooking. onions, peppers, celery. or holy trinity of italian cooking is tomatoes, garlic, basil. korean food is probably red chili paste, sesame oil, garlic.

    i saw a construction truck this morning that i think said JRKdesign.com or JRKdirtworks.com. i forget. but it definitely said JRK. makes me think JRK is involved in something like skunkworks but dirtier.

    what's for lunch people?

    you can also just find someone who 1) eats a lot of rice and 2) has dandruff.

    really enjoying this stuff called harissa. it's stewed tomatoes, chili peppers, olive oil in kindof a paste. awesome on pita bread or any soft bread. kalamata olives. lots of beer and weekend watching nba and a smidge of caps hockey.

    yep, morrow. Metro Center again, right? When's cool? btw, want a bottle of my Hot Sauce 2.0? I call it the "Singed Chest Hair," Build.

    Edit: Can we do 12:10pm? I have a 1pm mtg. Or way better yet, can we do next week?

    I got it off of the thai temple in Silver Spring. They had the thai festival there a couple of times/ year. I think they put some other spices in there too and I heard some folks used short grain (sticky rice).

    i use to have a bottle until it overturned in the fridge. Wifey is really sensitive with fish sauce as it's been declared a "combative lethal additive," in our household. Took me 3 days to clean off the fridge. Never again did I dare to store Magic Sauce in the fridge ever again...

    Thanks!

    No thanks!

    Yeah, harissa is really tasty. Great in dishes with chicken, chickpeas or in rice dishes. You'll see something similar in West African cooking except they tend to use palm oil.

    Next week is fine, this week is crazy anyway with the wife on travel middle of the week. But, yeah! I'd gladly give your hot sauce a try. We seriously need a TWMAC picnic where everyone brings a dish.

    -Combatitive lethal additive - LOL! You just need a nuclear storage grade container and you would be good.

    -First USTA match this season this coming Saturday! Hyped! Think I'm in the singles line-up.

    -Racket switch is on hold. Held my own vs. a buddy of mine who is a 4.5 in a practice match and hit an ace to win the tie break. Figure I should be okay at 4.0 this season.

    Looks really good. Reminds me of this sauce in Turkish Cusine. I went to their house in several occasions, they put this tomato, chili mixture in alot of their foods. It's good, but I think I need a stainless steel stomach to handle the spiciness.

    only been to ray's the classics in SS. it's a very good to great steak for not a lot of money. it's not however the best steak i've had. the appeal of ray's is great steak at reasonable prices.

    i think capital grille is the best i've had but i'm sure the likes of peter luger makes that taste like ground beef. or maybe not.

    now i want steak. mmmm red meat.

    Victorrrr!

    Best bets are the ones you win but forgot you bet. Put $50 for a "draw out if hat" bet for derby. Just got handed $250. It's something! I only won $75 for placing orb. Still lost more!

    Where's my chicken dinner!
