I'm dating myself, but The Flamingo Kid, with Matt Dillon. And +1 on High Fidelity and Swingers.

Ever since the 1918 Black Sox World Series was fixed, baseball has been afraid of a similar scandal that would sully its reputation as good, clean fun. So much for that notion. As a player, Pete should be in, but Bart Giammatti, rightly or wrongly, took care of that. As for Bonds, he was a Hall of Famer before he...
Bought my last pair in Alicante, Spain 10 years ago and hadn't really seen them since. I feel about them the same way I feel about flip flops -- for all intents and purposes they're beachwear. Not gay.

Not to swing off of Maryland's nuts, but it's a top-20 school, the subway gets you downtown in 30 mins, it has a campus, unlike GW, and employers know that UMD is a competitive school with quality programs. I'm from MD and didn't want to go there, but did for financial concerns (not the type you're describing), and was surprised by what I received. That being said, for the program you want AU or Georgetown might be better choices. There's also the fact that transferring...

UMD is a very good school (I graduated from UMD after transferring from Syracuse), cheaper than all the other DC alternatives, has great history, communications, and science programs. College Park isn't much to talk about but DC's really close. Crime in PG County is a problem (even though it's one of the top 40 wealthiest counties in the nation), but people are getting jacked in Georgetown every day, which speaks to crime in DC in general.
My old man started the "behave like a man and you'll be treated like one" thing when I was 12. No excuses, just do what you have to. Soon I was staying home with the utility/service guy and writing the checks out. He'd send me into a client's offices to drop papers by the time I was 16 and trust I knew what was what. When I was 20, I handed his mechanic $1500 to repair a car I wrecked, when my father said "you're a good man."
I have my weekly cigar fix to meet (Right now working with La Gloria Cubana Rubusto and Montecristo Buena Fortuna petite corona), but I'm out of dark rum right now. Might have to make a stop on the way home. Jsoftz, if you like Camaroon, try the Camacho SLR. Fine, fine cigar.

At the moment, I have multiple aspirations, but nothing makes me leap out of my chair and say, "Yes! I want to do this!" When you couple that with the feeling that my university courses seem to be little more than...
