hey pip!

what about 'the crabbers'?

my high school mascot was Freddy the Crab.

yup. giant freaking red crab suit. w/ claws.

my high school won state champ for football year after year. it's amazing what you get used to. 'crabbers.'

(city on the coast of Virginia. one area of town STANK from the stench of the factory that processed crab shells into fertilizer.)

:lol: :lol: :lol: I'd never get mad at you, 'boo.

last night.

I took #2 son, a/k/a the austinator, shopping for Easter clothes. He wants a "sports coat". There are none to fit him. We go to three stores. We buy shiny black loafers. He's stalking off in tears every three seconds and breathing deep, deep sighs. I'm thinking of driving him to the Smoky Mtn. Children's Home. I pick out black pants, a sharp plaid shirt, belt and socks. He hates them. I throw the clothes. He starts crying again. It is after 8 and I want to be at home. I feel guilty I've made him cry. We decide to try again another day. I swear never to shop with him again unless I am properly medicated. He's ten times worse than either of my daughters.


for all you baseball fans--who's on first.

ok, ok, a real question: who was your favorite teacher and why?

A few weeks ago a few people were run over at a bus stop here in Dublin. I would have been at that bus stop if I had decided to visit my sister, instead I was around the corner picking up tickets at the Olympia. Still gives me the shivers when I think about it.

My 11th grade English teacher, Larry Coyle. Cause he turned me on to THE SCARLET LETTER, the first difficult reading I ever loved, and cause he thought my writing was funny. Bless 'im.

Also he was a cute and geeky guy, coach of the boy's cross-country team, and-- get this-- he drove a vintage '40s (I think) MG. When it was working. Beautiful thing about two feet high. Roughly same age as this, but white rather than BRG, and beat to shit:

there was a time when i really really wanted to shag a housemate. a married housemate who was on sabbatical, thus living w/ us student types.

i got over it, but i did have to take a few very long walks to get away from temptation - cause he'd as much as told me, if i said the word, things would happen.

there mug, does that answer the question?

and there's still another on the table, so i shall refrain.

just an update - austin now has easter clothes. black pants, black shirt, green tie. it looks sharp. he's a 10 year old beau brummel.

one of my favorite people, who was kind of a teacher to me, also drove an MG, white '70s model. he let me back it up to put chains on the tires once. big thrill for me!

enough idle chatter. back to the question, which was.....

It involved costumes, a whip, lots of alcohol and a woman I dated on and off throughout college.

Yes, that looks closer. My memory of it is as being even flatter, but it's hard to know... I haven't seen the car in well over twenty years!

One of my teachers used to drive something similar to this:

He was quite a tall fellow and he looked quite ridiculous sitting very upright with his pipe in mouth.

Hey Mug - British Car Show - Lars Anderson Park?

I used to have a '73 MGB that I ruined driving around Boston one winter. Used to go to Lars Anderson three or four times a summer for the different car shows.

What's the word, hummingbird?

BWAP, d'ya know I've never been? I could nearly walk there, too. Lack of familial interest, though I could start taking my little guy. My ex had an MGB. He later replaced it with a nearly equally finicky Saab 99. I spent my first and only anniversary with him sitting in his garage helping him rebuild his engine. In hindsight it's clear that that was his way of telling me he was done with the relationship. The smell of cup grease still makes me weep. But then, wouldn't it anyone? Eeeew.

So there's a story, SLL.

My question: do you continue to wear your jeans when they rip (say, in the knee, not in the ass or crotch) or do you mend them, or do you just chuck 'em? Or are you so delicate that such things never happen?

My jeans do not have holes in the knee or crotch but if they did there are times when I would probably wear them anyway.

I am a Legman, so give me the dark meat.
Tonight I went to see a Tom Petty cover band in Dallas. We have some quality tribute bands in this area. No secret here, Oliver's Army tops my list.
What's your favorite tribute band where you are?
