    Haha, yeah I'm with you. The band that first introduced me to Metal. Dad was a fan of them.

    Definitely Guillermo Garcia Lopez. :)

    I remember his run to the Thailand title very well. Defeated Rafa on his way. One of the matches where Rafa was terrible in converting BPs (I think)...

    ^the first one is so funny and cute. But i choose the second one because it more closely, and d0uchetastically foreshadows Idiocracy.

    Ghostbusters or ghost peppers?

    Wow, Tom. You are good. Really just too tough to call.

    Carl was such an iconoclast on and off the course. Venkman was legendary, especially coming out of that elevator, and when facing Gozer.

    I am going with Carl, but only because i hit a bucket of range balls this afternoon after tennis.

    Back to the thisses and thats:

    Turkish delight or baklava?

    Baklava, it's marginally less sweet and it sounds better.

    More important to the wife:

    Her birthday or wedding anniversary?

    It's Carl for me too! "Caddyshack" isn't a classic without him, even though he has only about a dozen lines. "...Cinderella story, a former greenskeeper now about to become a Masters champion..." And delivered only like a golf lover in real life could say it.

    I'll go Turkish delight...nice and chewy sweet delicacy, but also the nickname of the 3-foot high glass and brass hookah brought back from Istanbul to London by my college roommate. We couldn't use it for fear of confiscation by Customs upon returning to the U.S. if any residue was found. Three months in a postage stamp room with Wendell, it and me but we made it.

    Better "party" zone...Seattle or Denver? Even the NFL got in the spirit of legalization as the participants in the first Big Game after legalization were those two cities' squads and gave new meaning to the term "Super Bowl". I've got to wonder which city is "greener", though both are miles and kilometers behind Amsterdam and their "coffeehouses".

    I have a friend who married his wife on her birthday, which solved this problem.

    I have never been to either city, but from what I hear, Seattle is a much better tourist destination. AT&T Park in San Francisco often smells strongly of the herb.

    Get high with Marloes and some of her friends at an unremarkable place in Holland, or say "Hi" to Marloes and then have a beer with her and a friend at a very nice place in Paris?

    Not sure of hannah's horse, so i am saying Mr. Ed. Smiling just thinking about such an eloquent equine, i associate mr ed with the best retro tv of my childhood (green acres, i love Lucy, gilligan's island, batman and robin, planet of the apes, honeymooners, rin tin tin, fat albert, MASH, f-troop, hogan's heroes, etc.)

    Thanks bud. Yeah, all is well. Honestly, just been playing and working more...lost interest...not in tennis, just talk tennis. But monte monte carlo brought me back. Getting into photography, too.

    Ok:
    Invest a real DSLR?
    Or listen to a photographer friend and just keep things simple?

    Hannah's horse is featured in the new Direct TV ads and he is a talker like the famous Mr. Ed. His lines about being discovered in Tijuana by agent Dicky Bittenberger make him quite a bit more "colorful" than the original talking horse. Plus, he gets a nice ride from the beautiful Ms. Davis!

    Get the camera, hopefully a Nikon...old allegiances never die so as an ex-Nikon employee I still endorse them!

    More photogenic city: San Francisco or NYC???

    If the mission is meeting your maker via a violent demise, it's Camden by a nose but East St. Louis is the winner.

    Better day of the week song:

    "Stormy Monday"...Allman Brothers Band

    Or

    "Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting"...Sir Elton John

    Dedans' photo of NYC's Chinatown elicited an olfactory reaction that left me craving Chinese food. I to had watch the Allman Brothers song on YouTube, as I was not familiar with the band, but go with "Stormy Monday".

    Being a top WTA player: makes a women seem hotter, or doesn't factor into the equation?

    Titan doesn't seem so nice...it's closer to Uranus!

    Mars Bar or Three Musketeers???

    The Undertones had a song about Mars Bars, so I will go with that. I have never tried either, but have tried Kit Kat Bars in both the U.S. and London.

    Mint Juleps at the Kentucky Derby with Craig Ferguson's friend, Secretariat, or an Aero Mint bar at the Hong Kong airport with Chinese PSB watching you?

    Enjoy an Aero Mint Bar with the Chinese PSB.

    You are a horse. Take a ride with Andrea, or star with Hannah Davis?

    Those are beautiful pictures. I live in San Francisco and sometimes I don't realize how beautiful city I am living.

    Kitten or puppy?

    puppy.

    ^ I was once there in SFO for 6 weeks in the 90's. Loved it. Used to drive around a lot.
    I remember driving to Yosemite Park, Lake Tahoe, and of course Highway One.

    Kyrgios or Kokkanakis ?

    Kyrgios, in that his haircut is more visually interesting.

    To introduce to your mother: Claudia Schiffer or Sureshs?

    Schiffer might fit in the same room with Mom; sureshs would need a shoe horn and some Vaseline.

    sureshs' Forehand of Evolution or SexiRogi's liquid-whip forehand?

    Almost fell of the chair reading your post.

    I was going to chose Rogi's forehand, but without surehs' Forehand of Evolution half this forum would not exist, and we would not be having such laffs.

    Like more? Vertigo or Psycho.

    Vertigo...Kim Novak was so beautiful!

    Jimmy Stewart or Cary Grant in Alfred Hitchcock films?

    While "Vertigo" is my favourite Hitchcock film, I think Cary Grant was Hitchcock's best actor.

    Damp and slippery Wimbledon grass on a dewy, foggy day, or high-bouncing, dry and bristly carpeting in the heat of a hot afternoon?

    I'd rather play Rafa on a slippery damp surface than a dry one.

    Wilson. Preferably 95".

    Mr Wilson or Mrs Wilson (Dennis the Men Ace reference).?

    ^^ I'll go for Mr Wilson as he has an avanucular Sureshianism about him.

    Sureshs the Menace: An hour on the tennis court with the Menace, sorry I meant Maestro or an hour of one on one tuition in internet trolley with the Maestro, sorry I meant Menace!?

    An hour on court with the Maestro couldn't help my miserable game but my Internet Trollery skills are strong and would get a phat bump from an hour with the Menace.

    sureshs' Bartoliesque serve or his dazzling backhand half volley pickup?
