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".
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.

"And, in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make..."
Yes or no?
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.
The cartoon or the food?
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.
What are you better at:
Frisbee or Spelling Bee?
pho is pronounced fuh.
Airsofting or Paintballing?
Wow, airsofting and paintballing...and nobody's talking, huh?
Well, I've never airsofted and I've only played at a paintball place once. I'm goin' with paintball.
Everyone else had a tough time deciding so they just said "I'll just wake until someone answers".
Fist-pumps, I don't do fist-bumps, not even in doubles.
Hawaii or Catalina Islands(The Effing Catalina Wine Mixer, POW!!)
Hawaii, got to go with the warm water.
being too hot in the summer, or too cold in the winter?
Too cold, I hate sweating.
Slap a guy/ kick a guy
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,
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?
Even though I hate Nadal I'm gonna have to go with him because I'm not a fan of Jersey Shore and that Isner vs Mahut match was fun.
A day of hanging out with Andy murray and hitting with him
A day of hanging out with Nadal and hitting with him.
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?
Lamborghini? Or Ferrari?
Sorry, don't know if this has been asked before...
I didn't say his first name cause Idk whether to say "Rafa" or "Rafael"
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.
Past or Future?
Future. You won't find anything new in the past, so just look forward towards the future.
Regular TV w/cable or HDTV w/no cable?
Since I have been watching a lot of DVDs recently, I would hate to lose the HDTV.
Moscow traffic, or the chaotic, hard-to-dodge, flow of pedestrians that ignore stop lights on the streets of Beijing?
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:
Quietly deported by the government,
chased across the border by an angry mob?
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
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)?
films, I would suffer but get use to it, TV doesn't count right?
Scenario: You have no car
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.
Hitting a 'bomb' of a serve for an ace or hitting a "you've gotta be kidding me!" return of serve winner?
Gotta say that if you have no car free gas for life wouldn't do you much good.
I like the service winner, though I can't personally relate much to either.
more likely to admire feminine armpits or kneecaps?
Armpits, baby. Yummm.
Nothing sexy about a gal's kneecaps - unless they're on my hardwood floors. HI-yohhh!!!
Steady camera, long takes
Jerky camera, quick edits
Well I didn't say you can never have a car, you can always buy one later
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.
Women with deep, sultry voices
Women with girly playful voices
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.
Futurama or Simpsons
Yes, but you are leaving out the key consideration that the bike ride will get you the food you're craving.

an Orenburg fur scarf
a $5 black Babolat bandana?:lol:
bandana fo sho
fry in butter or bacon grease?
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.
Ice cold Coke
Ice cold coke (never been a fan of shakes)
Babolat pure drive
Babolat aero storm?
Sponsorship for free
Racquets or shoes/clothes?
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
do it after work?
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:
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!).
Maxwell Smart or Austin Powers
Maxwell Smart, the old TV one
coffee at Starbuck's or make it at home?
I'm sorry about that. Just felt like being a butthead. Or maybe it was my evil twin.
Make it at home (the coffee too).
GAMES: "Jacks" or "Pick Up Sticks"
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"?
Separate names with a comma.
