    I saw Fogerty in concert a number of years back, and he sang the last line, "There's a bathroom on the right . . ." It was awesome!

    I worked summers and Christmas breaks at the Duke Textbook Store. We were forced to deal with the god-awful Musak playing 24/7. We had to get creative. Paul McCartney's My Brave Face became My Shaved Face, then My Thick Shake, then My Bald Head. Anything goes when you're bored.

    I worked in a movie theater for awhile when I was in grad school. Old style theater that they converted to two screens (it had a balcony when it was built), so, upstairs/downstairs. The soundtrack for the downstairs movie starts to become a part of the fabric of your life. We showed Hannah and Her Sisters for three months.

    This theater also showed Rocky Horror every Friday and Saturday night while I worked there, the theater set a record for the longest continuous run of a movie in the US. We had a big birthday party for Rocky and the staff all dressed in costume, so yeah, I had a French maid's outfit for one night. I went to grad school at SMU in Dallas. Sexism in Texas was something I struggled with, but, occasionally I appreciated some of the attitudes. I was the only female employee and the manager thought it wouldn't be safe for me to close on Fridays or Saturdays because of the Rocky Horror crowd, so, he didn't have me close on Fridays or Saturdays. I didn't complain. We shut concessions down about 10 minutes after the movie started and everybody working would clean up, but only the box office manager and one more staff member had to stay until the movie was over.

    That's a pretty cool job. What theater was it (I'm from the DFW area)?

    Meanwhile:

    1. Changed spikes at a golf course and clean the restroom
    2. Sold ice cream at a Marble Slab Creamery (don't eat anywhere teenagers work)
    3. Sold shoes at a mall shoe store (don't buy shoes from a place teenagers work)
    4. Worked the cater side of a restaurant business (see 2)

    I did have a cool research assistant job at Duke. Worked out in one of the forests helping the PhD students collect data.

    Blanka is green in SF2 is because he ingested too much chlorophyll? That's silly.

    I feel like this is how my eventual first meeting with Aimo is going to go.

    Street Fighter versus Mortal Kombat incites passion. No doubt.

    It got erased. There was an angry post on here from a deeberer. And I am cool with people being upset and all, but don't sully the LTE. That's my job. Get off my corner.

    Yeah, I saw it. Didn't really understand it. Was more intrigued with how he got away with his verbage without being wankerized. Used an image?
