    Pancakes are good -- my hubbie's brunch specialty is chocolate chip pancakes, slathered with crunchy peanut butter and maple syrup. Yeah, I thought it was strange at first too, but it's really tasty!
    My wife makes killer french toast, but we've switched to waffles this year. She got a new Alton Brown-approved (courtesy of "The Waffle Truth" Good Eats ep) waffle maker for Christmas. Fresh made waffles and bacon from Whole Foods -- that's the way to start a Sunday.

    Congrats to 1500 posts

    I have nothing profound to say, so I'll toss in some party supplies and let y'all at it.

    I make a mean matzah brei. I prefer savory, but I hear tell that there's a pretty large faction that prefers sweet.

    Just an update on the ranking by Views -- the LTE is by far the longest thread on any board. It also has the 11th most views of any thread, but we have a long, long way to go to catch the Patrick Patterson thread (currently 73,880 views).

    It's harder to check for longest duration (time from first posting to most recent), but it's unlikely the LTE will ever claim that crown. The 'Two Posts Away' and 'Duke Hatred Tsunami' threads have both been around far longer and are still going strong.

    Does anyone else feel that they get dumber during boring days at work? I can literally feel my brain cells melting away in a haze of inactivity. As such, I have been "forced" to resort to Sudoku and Crossword puzzles to maintain some form of mental acuity.

    I finished both the crossword and sudoku for the Washington Post in 19 minutes today. I defy someone on this board to beat this time. (note: you may need to register to play -- sorry!)

    Perhaps the above post is why I'm at work at this hour of the night. I got dumber as the day went on and didn't leave.

    Actually, it is so I can be sure to be home tomorrow for tip-off.

    LGD!

    Not so much getting dumber at work specifically, but I definitely feel like my brain power has been steadily decreasing since I got out of b-school in 2003. Like, it just is no longer capable of working as hard, for as long a sustained time, as it once did. This new gig is really causing me to do some real mental stretching (which, like real stretching, is at times enjoyable and other times painful!)

    When my brain has had enough, either at work or more frequently, at night at home, I somehow find myself here on the OTB.

    Most definitely. When I can, I work Sudokus. I like to use my brain, and my current job doesn't often give me the opportunity to do that.

    Yesterday I mailed a package to Coach K, in it were two Nike wristbands, a Sharpie, and a SASE. I've asked him to sign the wristbands for me and then mail them back so I can wear them when I run the marathon. Keep your fingers crossed. It doesn't feel like too much to ask plus I think I made it easy. I've got a 'Wriststrong' bracelet from the Colbert Report show which I intend to wear as well.

    I got the head of the Dramatist's Guild of America, who I have never met but I have had email exchanges, to make a donation. He came through! I have no shame. I really am slowly but surely asking everyone I know.

    The wrist is the ankle of the arm. Kudos!

    That bunny looks oddly Fench to me.

    Il semble y a un lapin avec une crêpe sur sa tête, et elle ressemble à un chapeau. Peut-être un béret ?

    Just asking.

    My wife has taken to calling me "Client Number 9." I hope that is not a bad omen.

    Just call her Ashley Dupre. Then prepare for a nice night on the couch.

    I'm a little slow; I just got this. Sad - I speak French, and I'm a huge Bugs Bunny fan. The hunting trilogy are among my faves, too. Comment dit-on "I'm a fiddler crab. It's fiddler crab season. Why don't you shoot me?" en Français?

    What I miss about the old DBR site

    The recruiting section had the commitments at the bottom of the page. Does this still exist?
