That sounds like a great way [In reply to] Can't Post

to spend the summer... interning at a news station!!! I wish the news wasn't so rampant on the flooding and fires, but it really will make the days go by faster keeping so busy.

Yeah... have a VERY relaxing weekend!!!!

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

Have a WONDERFUL 4th of July you guys!!

HOW COOL IS THAT!?!? I love it!! He sounds like such a neat little guy :)

So, like Frodo... you have songs made up for you... and like Gollum... you're struggling with pits, pits, pits ;)

Have a GREAT weekend, m'dear!

''Sam put his ragged orc-cloak under his master's head, and covered them both with the grey robe of Lorien; and as he did so his thoughts went out to that fair land, and to the Elves, and he hoped that the cloth woven by their hands might have some virtue to keep them hidden beyond all hope in this wilderness of fear...But their luck held, and for the rest of that day they met no living or moving thing; and when night fell they vanished into the darkess of Mordor.'' - - -rotk, chapter III

May the grace of ManwŰ let us soar with eagle's wings!

In the air, among the clouds in the sky
Here is where the birds of Manwe fly
Looking at the land, and the water that flows
The true beauty of earth shows
With the stars of Varda lighting my way
In all the realms this is where I stay
In the realm of ManwŰ S˙limo

That training is triathlon specific [In reply to] Can't Post

in the 'latter-early' stages, or a winter workout lol.

Gadorade is primarily made to work, in the most difficult endurance situations. I like the lemon-lime the best.

I don't tell him anything... [In reply to] Can't Post

Except to do the things that he can do and when 'the way' seems blocked to look for another way - NEVER to give up. It took me nine tries at college and 29 years after HS graduation, but I got my Bachelor's. It's taken a divorce and some terrible things to get me back into school for my MBA but I'm here. The only times a person is beaten are when they ALLOW themselves to be or are dead.
The nice thing about Hahvahd and Smith is they're essentially very well-connected fraternities - once you're in you're pretty well set for life from the very affluent connexions that going to such schools provides. The cost of going there is so drastically offset by those connexions and opportunities that it's actually a basement-bargain to go there.
All that said, I'm the poster-boy for the Pennsylvania Deutsch expression, "A man grows too soon old, and too late smart!"

The Scots are just as noted as the Irish... [In reply to] Can't Post

and if Kipling is any guide the Brits should probably be as well!

Yeah, I can relate to the family history of alcholism, though in mine it's not severe but more like 'if they viewed it then like they do now surely there'd be a large contingent of my family amongst the diagnosed' sort of thing and in any case I simply prefer to avoid potential problems when I see 'em. Besides, like most vices it's expensive!

I don't think there's a PA-Deutsch expression colorful enough [In reply to] Can't Post

to address the cost of Penn State tuition. I knew it was awful, but, d*yyyyyyy*m!, it's just been declared the worst for a state school. There are better bargains at great private schools.

NOOGIES!!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Which in my neck of the woods was rapping smartly upon one's "noggin" with the knuckles. There was also the "Dutch-rub", which was using the same fist but rather than rapping the noggin one applied the fist to the hair portion of the head and vigourously "rubbed" back and forth quickly enough to be uncomfortable w/the friction caused! hehehe Good memories both giving (and now that it's far enough removed) receiving such kidly pleasures!
Thanks! Tongue
