    It will be just like the time I stuck a folded up piece of toilet paper in the door of the stall after pbooth wondered why someone would ever do that! "Don't knock it 'til you've tried it" and all of that.

    edit: for reference, having tried it, I can say that folded TP in the stall door provides little to no satisfaction.

    I was distracted by the lavender tube top reference.

    I discovered a new technique that contributes to my happiness (inspired by cartoons of youthtime): whenever I feel irritated by something, I just yell "Aaaaaalvinnn!" That makes my body believe that Alvin was responsible for the irritation and that he'll stop irritating me once I call him out.

    Yeah, I was a little dubious that it would be good, but it really was delicious. I'm hoping next visit will be when the horses are racing, but this time I at least got to see them work out.

    It was really pretty. We took the road to Richmond that uses the ferry to cross the river. Definitely not 75 (we took that back). I can't remember the name of the road, but we went from a hike at Raven Run to the ferry and then drove through a bunch of hollers to Richmond, if that helps.

    Also, Richmond was the location of the bar where the aforementioned $55 shot of bourbon was purchased.

    Did you go to EKU?

    Definitely go back for the horses. Out of the tracks I have been too, I think that one is my favorite... something about the spring air at the track was just so intoxicating.

    I am a Colonel and wondering if they can pull an upset over Kansas.

    My guess is that you were at Madison Gardens or the Copper Still. I don't think the Copper Still Building was even built when I was in school. I was a Family Dog sort of guy... hahaha.

    I "dated" a sammich artist when I was in school. She chased me and cornered me in Razzles (a country bar I hung out in).

    Now I am wandering about my home singing the Five Dollar Footlong song, but in Axl Rose voice.

    Alright, officially signed up for the alaska trip--3 slots left if anybody wants in (I bet everybody else on the trip would *love* to do a shoe circle and talk about sport coat sizing issues)!

    I would love to be part of a circle but not of the shoe variety

    Couldn't make Stella taste any worse. Or Sprite, for that matter.

    It's called a Shandy. It's refreshing in the summer, can't imagine having one in the winter.

    According to the Wikipedia a shandy is beer mixed with a soft drink. Lemonade is just a common mix.

    There's a bit of semantic confusion, I think. In the UK, "lemonade" usually means lemon-flavored carbonated soda, as opposed to here in the States, where it tends to mean diluted and sweetened lemon juice. So the Sprite thing probably isn't that far off if you're going for "authenticity" or whatever.

    That said, beer and U.S.-style lemonade can be refreshing. Sprite is disgusting.
