    Really? Over leaf blower?

    I know the venerable broom is more versatile, but the leaf blower has done for landscaping what the nail gun has done for construction.

    Kirilenko has already been had so I go with Panayotova (as if...:lol:). Plus, I sure do love me those "-ovas".

    More Cowbell

    or

    More Vuvuzelas?

    Cowbell.
    NEVERTHELESS, THE BROOM REIGNS SUPREME! There are few greater horrors than a leaf blower in neighborhoods like La Jolla, Pacific Palisades, or Marin in the Californian morning.

    Once upon a time, the broom was the lubricating item of choice. Whether it be belladonna, henbane or mandrake, the broom was the way to go. Yes, I must choose a broom over a leaf blower.

    no, because sometimes the one you love doesn't love you with the same amount of love and vice-versa.

    Would you rather lose a racquet or money in a transaction on ttw? (the racquet is not rare, just almost-new for example a Youtek Prestige)

    I was about to chime in with a YES, confirming the Beatles lyric...as a happily married man, but Chu drops us some unrequited love. Man, you could write a book or a song about that.

    If it's a YouTek anything, the guy did you a favor relieving you of that piece of shmarketing.

    Since I had some very good kung pao tofu as part of my lunch today, my choice is peanuts for food.

    Derry or Londonderry?

    Thank you but I'm thinking I should stop writing books and go into the movie business, just kidding. I'm glad you're happily married but there are other people who aren't happy in their marriage/relationship, not me of course since I'm not married

    haha Youtek was just an example, it could be a Wilson, Babolat, Prince etc. Just none of those Czech, TGK, PT, **** custom or racquets that a pro used. Just a modern retail players racquet.

    I'm going with Londonderry, final answer.

    -Pho or Wonton Noodle soup
    For those who don't know what those are
    -Popeyes or Wendy's?

    Pho rather than wontons (how do you guys pronounce that? Fah? Po?)

    Ramen (but the cheap stuff is weak. In college, I liked the big ones at the Korean store with an egg and a lot of cilantro. Cheap, fun meal.

    Frisbee or Spelling Bee?

    Jeff Tarango's wife likes to slap.

    It had been an inconsequential evening of socialising shared by George Harrison, John Lennon, their wives Cynthia Lennon and Patti Boyd and George's dentist, who had just drifted over their social horizon. Then the five, accompanied by the dentist's wife, adjourned from the small dining room to the lounge, where the dentist slipped LSD - a substance then as little known to the Beatles as to most in Britain - into their coffees.

    The dentist's decision not to tell the boys what he was doing led to George's term of opprobrium for him. "We were innocent victims of the wicked dentist whom we'd met and had dinner with a few times," he says in the Anthology.

    Cynthia Lennon evidently still hasn't forgiven him. "When you go for dinner with your dentist, you don't imagine a professional man would do something like that," she told Turner.

    Roger Federer and Mirka invite you to dinner at their home and slip
    scopolamine into your wine. In your compromised stupor, Roger and Mirka
    force you to watch the entire season of "Jersey Shore" with them,

    ~~~OR~~~

    Rafael Nadal and "Uncle Toni" invite you to dinner at Rafael's home and slip scopolamine into your wine. In your compromised stupor, Rafael and Toni force you to watch the entire Isner vs. Mahu match with them?

    don't take this wrong and maybe I'm reading into your username but I noticed no-first-name with Nadal.

    That said, I'd rather hit with Nadal.

    Outside of his hyper-competitiveness on court, Rafa comes across like a sweet guy once match point's been concluded..

    Plus, Murray's "incisor fangs" give me the creeps..

    I have to agree with Dedans, Rafa seems like a more friendly guy than Murray.

    Ball boy/girl or linesman/woman at your favorite slam?

    I'll take the 2002 Mustang with the broken right hand side mirror by foolishly backing up too fast and hitting the wooden fence / metal gate combination. Not to mention the foggy headlights.

    Since I have been watching a lot of DVDs recently, I would hate to lose the HDTV.

    More stress-inducing:

    Moscow traffic, or the chaotic, hard-to-dodge, flow of pedestrians that ignore stop lights on the streets of Beijing?

    Moscow traffic.

    When driving in a foreign country I always seem to end up hitting something. I'd feel much better running over a Ziguli rather than a bouncing Beijing baby buggy.

    DIY. (I had to Google these choices, and I am operating under the assumption that the DIY Network delves into electonics.)

    You are visiting a foreign country:

    I’ll go ahead and go with chased across the border by an angry mob, since that way you don’t have to spend time in detention centres and deal with their idiosyncrasies or deranged cellmates, or getting escorted for plane boarding in cuffs.

    play 2hrs on red clay

    or

    bike 18 miles (r/t) to eat food you’re craving

    Play 2hrs on red clay. I can play tennis or football (soccer) for many hours and never feel pain because I am having fun. When I run or ride a bicycle, I get bored quickly.

    Banished from listening to music, or banished from watching films (though music is allowed within the context of watching films)?

    Would you rather have free gas for life or a new car(all paid off, all you do is pay insurance)

    Depends. Normally, free gas for life. But if the new car was a Drophead Coupe, I'd take the Rolls.

    Steady camera and long takes. Tarkovsky (sp?) would be a good example. Orson Welles another.

    Gratuitous jerky moves and quick edits are a sign of absolute lack of talent.
    That being said, it can be done well if it fits the bill and it is done with a purpose.

    Sultry. Playful, or more specifically, perky is a turn-off.

    If you like long steady cam shots check out Children of Men if you haven't seen it yet.

    Bacon grease. No need to lead a long life without the pleasures of bacon. Clogged arteries are bad, but unhappy tastebuds are a price I'm not willing to pay for that.

    Simpsons.

    And as for free sticks vs shoes/clothes?
    All amounts being equal, I'd go w/ sticks. Every company makes a few good models with the right specs for me. Not every shoe company makes great shoes. Plus that's more personal, I think, so I'd rather pick those out myself.

    Get up early for a workout

    Gosh, that truly is a tough one. How about get your priorities straight and be on the courts between 10am and 4pm M-F when all the glamorous ppl hit?

    hit on a hot humid nasty day at:

    10am

    or

    Why should time of day matter?

    I'll take 3pm, maybe it was cooler at 10am and there's usually more to do in air conditioning at 3pm(movie theaters!).

    What do you think of the shaky camera and quick edits in the "Bourne" films of Paul Greengrass?
    This is for you and ILC to decide privately, but "Jacks" sounds less painful.

    "Seinfeld" or "Curb Your Enthusiasm"?
