    Walking everywhere for my errands to loosen up my legs for some running and court time. Been doing my prematch stretching/shadow strokes while watching the AO. Thankfully, I'm on the ground floor to avoid setting off sureshs-like tremors for tenants below.:p Can you feel the shakes in Delhi @Sentinel or in London @Vcore89 ???

    An old guy was working out at the gym when he spotted a young hot girl walking in. He asked the trainer standing next to him, "What machine should I use to impress that girl over there?" The trainer looked him up and down and said; "I would recommend the ATM in the lobby.":D

    Sir sentinel would surely try to impress them Div III hotties with his strength, stamina and endurance [whatever that might mean].;) Naturally, sureshs would impress them gurlz with his spraying machine!:D

    At his arraignment for charges of indecent exposure, sureshs argued he was only trying to provide very needed hygienic services for his little schwettie Div3 princesses.:p:D

    I recently passed our beloved and sadly departed @kiki for total posts, bumping his final resting place from page 1 of the contributor's list.

    I could not have done this without the great help and inspiration provided by all my dear friends and sparring partners, a list too long to detail. Thanks so much for this honor!:p:):D:eek:

    I hit with a racquet once used by Andrei Medvedev today. This reminded me of sitting next to Anke Huber on an outside court at Roland Garros, watching Andrei play a match in the early 1990s. He later broke up with her, got back together, and broke up with her again. I don't know what either is up to today.

    When it's a cool night out on the bike taxi, I wear my charcoal Harris tweed hat. I get a lot of positive feedback.

    20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs.

    Now, we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs.

    Please don't let Kevin ''Bacon'' [ aka @r2473 ] die.:D

    I am pretty sure Chocovic is a fine Spanish Chocolate but I am not specifically sure what Chokekovic [pre anabolic diet or whatever mumbo-jumbo gluten-free crap he was peddling] is ''greasing the groove'' with, nowadays.:eek:

    I don't think it would ever come to this, but my body is actually (and finally) starting to relent alcohol. Though it could be because I've been working from 6AM to 5:30PM today, I actually welcome the change.

    I recently really enjoyed a meal at an Ethiopian restaurant, and am currently foaming at the mouth with saliva in anticipation, as I am about to return for lunch.

    There are lots of cities in the world with offset time zones. Like Kathmandu is _hrs and 45 min difference from the rest of the world.
    A town in China is _ hrs and 30 min diff from the rest. Craziness.

    San Francisco is very crowded and full of traffic this week, so it looks like a good weekend to stay in the East Bay and play tennis.

    455 BC: Aeschylus, the great Athenian author of tragedies.

    Valerius Maximus wrote that he was killed by a tortoise dropped by an eagle that had mistaken his bald head for a rock suitable for shattering the shell of the reptile. Pliny, in his Naturalis Historiæ, adds that Aeschylus had been staying outdoors to avert a prophecy that he would be killed by a falling object

    Feeding some of those dark red peppers at the top of your chart to Sureshs could be the key to Nuclear Fusion.

    I gather the hottest peppers in the world come from Nepal and eating them is akin to chewing glass in your mouth. I gather they are used in minimal quantities in processed foods.

    Sea lion takes a booth at San Diego restaurant on the beach

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A skinny sea lion pup with a taste for the finer things in life turned up on Thursday inside a fancy San Diego restaurant, where it settled down into a booth.

    The malnourished mammal appears to have arrived at The Marine Room after sauntering down a ramp from the beach and going through a door left open by a cleaning crew, said Chef Bernard Guillas.

    The early morning guest quickly made an impression on the establishment's staff, as the female pup climbed into a booth "almost like she wanted to have dinner," the chef said.

    The menu at the white table-cloth restaurant, which juts out into the Pacific Coast and is buffeted by waves during high tide, includes rarified dishes like "ginger kalbi lacquered tofu" and "ahi tuna and foie rossini."

    But the pup was hardly given a chance to get comfortable. A rescue team from the SeaWorld San Diego theme park was called in to pull the barking mammal from the booth and place it in a net. The mammal was then taken to SeaWorld for care, said David Koontz, a spokesman for the tourist center.

    The lethargic pup is eight months old and weighs only 20 pounds (9 kg), less than half the normal size for its age, Koontz said. But SeaWorld staff is "guardedly optimistic" they can nurse it back to health and return the animal to the wild, he said.

    I have been to this restaurant several times. They have a very nice Sunday brunch AYCE buffet.
