    Nicely done and worthy of 8000.

    I was just thinking, since we've been setting lots of goals and all that, we will have to double by 12/20/09 and hit 15,000 by then. No pressure or anything.

    Oh by the way, I rehearsed for the part of 'waitress' today. It's the only rehearsal I'm going to get besides tech tomorrow for my stepping in last minute. It went well. I can still learn lines at the drop of a hat. Why is that I wonder? Really. I'm asking. I'm unusally good at memorizing text. Do I sound too braggy? I'm not trying to, it's just a fact about me, kind of like saying I'm a Duke fan or a knitter. I can learn lines superfast. But why? The brain fascinates me. I often think I went into the wrong area of research.

    Perhaps I'll bump the theater opps thread but for anybody local, the exact dates for the shows are January 9 and 17, confirmed. I'm a triple threat, write one, direct one, act in one, c'mon, you can't miss it! (But I will forgive you if you do.)

    What's your best Scramble score? I, too, am on Facebook and play that game. I currently hold the record amongst my friends (137).

    Thanks! The thread is great inspiration. I can always come here for a good laugh. BTW, sounds like your holiday travels were eventful, to say the least. Glad you made it home safely!

    Thanks! I wanted to work in the whole doctoring thing, but it just didn't fit as well as beer did.

    Break a leg! Looks like I left a few skills out of the infamous 8000/900 post. It would be a bit of a commute, so I'll be there in spirit.

    I think that some people are just wired to memorize better than others. Working on that skill helps build it even more. I used to be much better at it than I am now, although my memory is pretty good.

    Thanks!

    Bet we can get pretty close to your suggested goal - especially if we all employ the Devildeac Strategy and reply to bunches of posts. Not that I would ever do such a thing...

    Back in Vegas... again.
    Sad.

    * Left out of AD's LTE tribute at 8k. * Saw Marley & Me. * Jan. 24th doesn't work for me. *

    Sad.

    [Side notes: 1) Great job AD. 2) Jan. 17th is back in play and Feb. 7th still is a possibility.]

    And, once again, it is narrowed to a one possession game...
