  1. We aren't really arguing about much here, but what's ever stopped us before. I think I'm just saying the "treat my SO to the best" crowd isn't buying these. In that sense it isn't like TIFF
  2. Oh. I'll make a line on the answer to that.
  3. My understanding is that they are gifts for very formal occasions or corporate. Like Melon's have a specific traditional connotation.
  4. you know what's kind of a bitch? heating egg whites in the stand mixer bows over a pot of water.
  5. But the buyers are ordinarily gifting the fruit, not eating it.

  11. no. You're wrong. Its a play date doing "dance dance revolution" Enough with the olivia rodrigo tho.
  12. My guess would be in the early 80's there was more economic diversity in Manhasset. Still always been a very wealthy place, Buttt - I remember going there as a kid and it always being very Manhasset-y. https://www.instagram.com/p/CT5yrh1ggmF/
  13. Like I'm all on the bandwagon for CNS as the greatest CFB coach of all time, but this clearly would have been his first championship where his team wasn't just physically better. Which isn't to denigrate the other trophies, because building that team is part of the game.
