    When I dream of fedr's style of play, my head is nestled in a surrealistic pillow.

    When it’s hog-calling time in the Ozarks, cries of “Sooey!!” ring out over hill and dale.

    Which one is @r2473 ???

    Only slightly larger than Floyd of Rosedale, the trophy his Hawkeyes have retained the last two seasons by beating the Minnesota Golden Gophers.

    Now you got me thinking of that golden slam, no sunshine double, no what the heck they call Indian Wells and Miami again?

    Sunshine Doubles are the exclusive multiple treats of Fedovic. Other greats like Courier, Chang, Rios, Agassi and Sampras have achieved the feat once but only Rovak have been tops there more often.

    Perhaps Roger and Novak can pull it off yet again in 2018. I'd love to go to Indian Wells to see them play in person, and to see that picturesque landscape.

    Watch the tournament in March, then stick around for the landscape ogling for a few weeks, capped by the Coachella Music Festival in mid-April.

    Adam Levine has done very well for himself as the creative force and frontman for Maroon 5 but he also makes his presence on the small screen (The Voice) and the big screen (Begin Again).

    It will be captivating to see if GRIGORIUS DIMITROVIUS can have a breakout year in 2018 after his marvelous finish to 2017.

    The sewage system in San Poobiego has been refined by necessity to accommodate one resident's output. Steps they have taken are being studied by municipalities all over the world to avert potential disasters if and when the SexiSurihejira itinerary includes their burgs.

    The one major I have never been to is the Australian. I have a family member who visited Peter Jackson in New Zealand, and said great things about the country, which made me want to visit. Maybe I can combine a visit to New Zealand to see the nature with watching the Australian Open in the future.

    Abel Tasman first "discovered" New Zealand in 1642. On the same journey he also "discovered" a large island off the coast of a larger land mass and named it Van Diemen's Land after the Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies. It was renamed Tasmania much later in 1856.

    The first explorers ot that larger "island" named two areas of its expanse New Holland and New South Wales. It wasn't until the turn of the 18th and 19th century that an English explorer, Matthew Flinders, circumnavigated the continent and suggested the name Terra Australis from the Latin words for "land of the south."

    Archie and friends played "Wheel of Zeal" once. Ol' Fortuna never knew what hit 'er.

    P.S. Game seems to have evolved from its earliest 10-character incarnation to short story format. :D

    The short story of SexiSuri has evolved into a 16K+ novel reaching Tolstoyian proportions.

    Count Tolstoy knew base; he could spin a yarn about wretchery that'd take a lifetime to unravel.

    Nowadays, Dracula is more fragile, tamed and humanized. I loved 'em when they were simply reCounted as aristocratic and lunatic, pale and vicious bloodsuckers.

    Joeliet would not object if SexiSuri morphs into a blood sucking vampire to rival Stoker's Dracula. Perhaps Bellio Deol could pull that role off in a mega Bollywood blockbuster.

    Blockchain miners either hijacked individual nodes or whole networks resulting in sluggish forum performance/network traffic leading to double/triple/quadruple postings involving multiple parties just like massive highway traffic pile-ups.

    San Poobiego had to pA.S.S. a mA.S.S.ive infrastructure improvement funding referendum to improve their human traffic highways and waste treatment "lowways" after SexiSuri set up residence in their burg. It is no small coincidence there wasn't enough moolah left over to keep the Chargers in town.

    Returning the SexiSuri augmented Poobartoli service will be the true test of whether Djokovic can once again become a champion.

    Service might not be so good for the San Diego Bageler if he returns to a restaurant where he left no tip or performed his elusive dine-and-dash.

    The margarita was supposedly first created at a restaurant near Tijuana for Ziegfeld dancer Marjorie King, who was allergic to many liquors but not tequila. I guess Cointreau and triple sec were also not toxic for the famous entertainer.

    Another story says the drink was also created in Tijuana but by accident when the bartender poured tequila instead of gin when making a Gin Daisy.

    I've always had a bit of a liking to both the Ziegfeld dancers and the Radio City Music Hall dancers. A former well-known New York City Ballet dancer had a job at Radio City Music Hall when she was starting out for the money she needed.

    The Folies-Bergere in Paris is a cabaret theater that caught the eye of the young painter Toulouse Lautrec in the late 19th century. I believe a current artist with an eye for the flair of that venue would be quite wise to live in modern day San Poobiego and frequently spectate the local tennis courts to capture colorful dancing activities.
