  1. She was face down in a tray of jello-shots.
  2. there's just the record of wins and losses. not so good for Big Ten so far. If Arkansas whips up on OSU, that will only get worse.
  3. Lucky you. I'll be skiing at Alta next Friday through Sunday. I really wish I had a client in SLC. clients and a defendant.
  4. I am skiing at Alta on wednesday this week.
  5. Maybe they would win 7-8, but that was the one that mattered. Tough bowl day for the wee little ten.
  6. Now that Sandra Lee is the new first lady of NY, I think we need to have an Iron Chef battle between her and Sarah Palin. In fact, I can't believe that this has not occurred already.
  7. True altitude sickness is not common, but can happen. Much more common is feeling unwell because people are not accustomed to drier air and lower oxygen levels at altitude. This, coupled with excessive alcohol consumption, greatly increased aerobic activity and insufficient water consumption (all of which are common during ski trips)result in feeling like crap. I never drink alcohol on the first day of a ski trip, and I try to drink a ton of water and juice throughout the day to counter this condition.
  8. The Cards are the underdog yet again (damn Calipari and his excellent recruiting classes!), but this group of UL players have impressed so far . . .
  9. Oysters would be my definite preference, but I am not sure about the folks I am hosting. lots of great ideas though. Maybe I need more spoons.
  10. Say what you will about "tobacco road" and the movie "Hoosiers", but everyone knows that the real home of college basketball is Kentucky. So, tonight we will see the annual occurrence of the greatest rivalry game in college basketball . . . University of Louisville vs. University of Kentucky. If you are born and raised in Kentucky you are indoctrinated into the cult of college basketball loyalty from day one. You love UL or UK, and there is no middle ground. You must hate the other school. It is the job of every parent to insure that their child grows up rooting for the proper program.
  11. I had thought about ceviche, but that seems sort of tired. I like the egg idea or mushrooms with a "blue" cheese of some sort. thanks dudes.
  12. About 8 years ago, I purchased a set of "appetizers spoons" from the shop at MOMA. These are the type that are meant to serve as vessel and utensil. You know, the handle is curved under and the spoon is made to hold a small amuse or appetizer that is to be consumed in one bite. I have never taken them out of the box. But, I am going to tonight. any thoughts on something that would be good to serve in them? it has to be vegetarian or seafood based as I am hosting two non meat eaters.
  13. Good thing about Breck is that you are so close to many other resorts. A-Basin, Copper and Keystone are all nice, but I really recommend the short drive over to Vail/Beavercreek. I love skiing the back bowls of Vail.
  14. The Park Slope Cooperative has been doing that allocation of work for decades. Hence the word "cooperative". When I shop at a "store" I expect there to be employees who perform the various tasks associated with retail sales. Frankly, I am shocked that the hotel industry hasn't figured this out yet and started requiring that we clean our own rooms.
  15. I made the quiche from last week's recipe in NY Times. I think it was 3 eggs to 1.5 cups of heavy cream. Also made for a very silky texture.
  16. I am waiting for the supermarket that will take it to the next level. Customers don't just check themselves out and bag their own groceries, but will also stock the shelves, sweep the aisles, retrieve the carts from the parking lot, and work the deli counter.
  17. I learned about jazz music by watching him on Sunday Morning with Charles Kuralt.
  18. Yep, I know you love those grits! But I was wondering if you can go into a hole in the wall family breakfast place down South and be able to get home fries with your eggs? probably not. it's kind of like ordering toast instead of biscuits . . . frowned upon.
  19. Volpi is one of my favorites. If you put in ziploc bag and get all of the air out of it, it should keep in sliced form for about a week or so.
  20. Born and raised in the south and we have always known about home fries. we just prefer hash browns, and at Waffle House you can get 'em scattered, smothered and covered. however, given the choice, I'll opt for cheese grits every time.
  21. Just booked 4 days at Deer Valley after the first of the year. 60 inch base already, and it is snowing like mad out there.
  22. Louisville is looking good with its limited talent this year. One bad game, but overall I am pleased with Pitino's work with this bunch. of course, conference play has not started yet . . . and having a wife who is a Georgetown alum makes being in the Big East even more unbearable. but, as much as Louisville has developed some good rivalries in the Big East, nothing compares to the showdown set for 12/31/10!
  23. I missed his exit at Pulinos. what happened?
