  1. I saw Steve Young and his family on a Southwest flight once.


    They asked if anyone would change seats so "a family" could sit together. Not until people agreed did he come on board, so no one knew it was his family when first asked.


    It was a San Fran to Phoenix flight, and I remember wondering if he had a game to broadcast that weekend.

  2. I guess you have not had the pleasure of a Wal Mart in your area.


    I have been seeing it for years.  Mainly it was 20ish crowd, but yesterday I saw a 60ish old man at the mall in PJ bottoms.


    the height of fashion at that store  :biggrin:


    Call me an old cane-shaker, but I'm not thrilled with pajamas in public ...

  3. Watched Love Actually again as part of our Christmas-themed streaming movie watching (next up is Bad Santa :-)  ).


    Weird to see these actors in that not-as-good-as-I-remembered movie:

    • Bilbo Baggins as a stand-in for a porno movie star, mimicking all the porn moves without actually doing the deed
    • Rick from Walking Dead as a lovestruck wimp, using his native Brit accent
  4. Has anyone else started getting emails from Scout.com selling Tickets and Bowl game packages?

    I got 2 already. Labeled them and now they'll all go straight to my junk folder.


    I heard some people tried to "unsubscribe" but scout didn't recognize emails or wouldn't unsubscribe. So, junk mail, it is.

  5. So earlier this week, my dog had the runs.


    It had passed and he seemed better.


    Last night everyone was going in different directions so for dinner I grabbed some popcorn chicken from Walmart.


    Gave both of my dogs a few pieces as I did not want to put a plastic container with a handful of pieces in the fridge.


    This morning I am getting ready and I hear my wife yell, "the dog is sick again" as she is cleaning up the mess.


    I almost felt bad.

    Sorry to hear that. But, did you tell her about the popcorn chicken? or play dumb?


    "wow, honey, that's really weird that he got sick again. He must not have been over what he had before."



  6. A couple other bells and whistles we have here that I don't think is available on the board many of you arrived from are the two buttons below the search window on the upper righthand side of any page you're on in the forums. 


    If you click the "new content" button, that will bring you up a menu of every thread on the site that has posts you haven't read yet. A lot of the old-timers navigate the site this way. 


    If you click the little pointer-looking thing right next to the new content button, it will open a window listing the links to all the forums on the site, and you can jump to any one of them from there. That's how I usually get around. 



    If you hover your cursor over the right hand side of the title of the thread near where the # of replies are, you'll see a gray arrow that turns black when you're directly over it. Click that, and you'll get a preview of both the first and last posts in the thread. :)



    Thanks, slats!!!


    I've been a member here for years, though I haven't posted much lately. And I never knew about these features.







    EDIT: I changed my avatar from when I posted years ago, but it's still a Jet green margarita!

  7. Cute as can be. Voted.


    Also, applaud you for working with JDRF - that is one of our preferred charities because our niece has it.


    Also, also... didn't realize you lived up here in Mass. Glad I'm not alone here in enemy territory!!! 


    I lived around Boston for 20 years. It was horrible for sports, with all the NE or Red Sox homers.


    Didn't mean to derail ... back to voting for LBS's adorable daughter!

  8. I remember you. Welcome back!

    Feel free to liven up the Lounge. :)

    Thanks, slats!


    I remember posting in the Word Association thread.

    I just took a peek in the Lounge, and I see the Last To Post in This Thread is still going on ... 8 years later!

    Hope to be able to contribute.

  9. Hi everyone!


    I used to post on this site, mostly in the Lounge, which I enjoyed, but something happened. The atmosphere changed, so I went to hang out in the JI Hampur, the other land of misfit toys.


    With everything going on over there, I thought I would come back and see what it's like here now.


    And no, I'm not one of the three females described in an earlier post. :)

  10. Some wonderfully bad songs in this thread. :yes:

    I really hate this song, even though lots of people love Clapton, and rightly so. But this song grates on my nerves and the lyrics are awful. That's probably because my step-brother used to play this song as loud as he could over and over again, maybe 15 times in a row, and then sing along totally off key in a screeching voice. It would drive me nuts. I still can't listen to it ever.

    " I shot the sher...ifff but I did not shot the deputy" wtf?
