    Having recently moved north from the NC, well I am beginning to think the solution to your potential problem is to head on down south. I am actually happy to celebrate Dr. King's birthday in January. The last company I was at didn't recognize his birthday as a regular holiday so I was always using my vacation time to take the day off. Seems a rather pitiful complaint and companies are spotty on these types of issues, my current employer celebrates Columbus Day but not Veteran's Day.(I am technically a veteran.)

    Sigh. If only . . . I'm an NC native. When I was in elementary school, we didn't get Columbus Day off from school or Veteran's Day either. In my experience Massachusetts has way too many school holidays and the kids go until the last week of June which is useless time in my book. A day in September is not equal to a day in June in terms of learning something.

    The Boston part of my post name is in honor of the Boston Red Sox, my other love, not necessarily the city itself. Although I've been here long enough it occasionally feels like home. And I've rooted for the Pats since they were really, really bad.

    Hey Folks, don't lose too much steam, remember someone will eventually win a cashmere scarf (or silk or merino wool or a blend of all three).


    Sugar Hill Gang or GrandMaster Flash?

    Is neither an option?

    I'm watching "Superbad," and while I can't recommend it along the lines of any measures of movie quality, but darn, it's hilarious. And, well, the dialog writing is pretty stellar, and the actors are hard not to like, so I guess that counts for something.

    If you haven't seen it, and like sophomoric humor (like "clerks" but smarter), go get the DVD!
    Not an Apatow movie, but I have to recommend Juno. Just saw it last weekend with the wife. Great movie, and Michael Cera is at his awkward best.

    Is is funny or sad or perhaps even ironic that I almost never post on the main board anymore? Sometimes the main board scares me and I venture over there at my own risk.

    Everybody loves Krispy Kreme doughnuts, but I don't see what the big deal is. Come to think of it, doughnuts in general usually leave me feeling underwhelmed, the occasional chocolate one notwithstanding.

    Everyone should go see "Charlie Wilson's War." I was most definitely not underwhelmed by that one.

    Does anyone ever think about being "whelmed"? I certainly do. For instance, I would say I was whelmed by by recent visit to Rupp Arena. It wasn't absolutely spectacular, but not terrible either; pretty much an expectedly enjoyable experience--whelming.

    Canadians don't. They were a novelty when they first arrived up here so everyone tried them but that was it - they didn't even make a dent in our Tim Horton's addiction. KK is rarely heard about up here any more. Then again, the coffee at KK sucks so they had no chance as people here are ridiculously addicted to the coffee at Timmy's and we buy our doughnuts where/when we buy our coffee.

    A close second is Haagen Daz' (sp?) coffee ice cream.
    Breyers. Almost any flavor. I loved butter pecan when I was younger. Now, vanilla. As an aside, does anyone actually look at the ingredients? Breyers uses no eggs and uses real sugar, not corn syrup like the others. Breyers, hands down. Festus Hagan Das uses eggs. Why does ice cream even need eggs! Someone tell me! I'm a SMOKIN'. Oh yeah.

    ...must...keep...thread...alive...

    Has anyone else ever tried Yarnell's Homemade Vanilla ice cream? It beats Breyer's all to heck. It's made in Searcy, AR, so it may have a limited regional market.

    Haven't seen it when I lived in NC/TN or here in the Boston area, so maybe a limited market. Generally, I stick to Breyer's since like McDonald's they offer consistent quality no matter where you are.

    Re: Fear and the Main and PP Board Comments

    Typical Comments:

    Main- "Cherokee made 6 points in the second half of that game as I recall."
    "The RPI and BCS are related somehow and I intend to analyze them
    when I have time."
    "I have done a repeated measures test on all the scores of Duke
    players who sat in on Simpson's class and have tabled the significant
    differences below." Comments are welcome.

    PP- "The issue is not the length of the primary; it's the quality of
    spokesmen who feel that Obama and Hillary are related somehow to
    an undercurrent of distrust of the public."

    "Huckabee and Bush once shared a condo in Madrid that could make a
    difference in the outcome of the primary in New Hampshire." At
    least, that's my opinion." Comments?

    Finally..

    Off topic-- "Anyone like peanuts and chocolate together?"
    "Where can I buy a new garden rake?"
    "Anyone going to drink large quantities of beer tonight?"
    "How large was B.F. Skinner's head?"
    "I just saw Bambi again and it is as great as it was the first
    time."
    "I received some moleskin leggings for Christmas and I was curious
    about whether I should wash them in cold or warm water?"
    "Help! What is the button on the very top of cameras?"

    Duke Trivia

    Random Thoughts...

    What was spray painted on the dumpster by the Aycock dorm(actually between Aycock and what served as the DUMA I think at the time) in the fall of 1989?

    Think hard!

    Better Bundy than us

    you get 5 gold stars.

    Apparently, someone supported capital punishment.

    If you mean a D.I.N.K., I'd post a pic of me and my husband. But then, you'd be able to pick us out of a lineup, so maybe not.

    Is this the take off on the Wagnerian Rings? If so, definitely a good one.

    Indeed it is.

    "Oh mighty warrior of great fighting stock, might I inquire to ask, "Eh, what's up Doc?"

    My favorite exchange:

    Elmer: "Oh Brunhilde, you're so lovely."
    Bugs: "Yes I know it; I can't help it."
