  1. Watched part of the game tonight, it was great! Congrats Katy!
  2. Thank God they actually read the complaints. I can't tell you how many times the 131 Memorial Express would pass DH and the group by downtown--no full bus or anything--the guy would just totally ignore them, most likely b/c he was late. Frustrating bus service is just one chunk of the problem. Getting the smelly, drunk homeless people off the train is another.
  3. Oh shoot, what the heck am I thinking about? I thought she was in one of the sequels. Oops!
  4. The reason for the stucco look is so that it can keep in line with the architecture of the other hospital buildings, at least, that's what I'm guessing.
  5. As the daughter-in-law of one, I can assure you that you are not entirely correct in your "opinion".
  6. I totally got it watching Bad News Bears go to wherever they went. I still like her though!! Smart girl keeping her mouth shut for so long. I know that sounds terrible but it's true.
  7. Okay, that's just insane 98%!!! My lips are all puckery at the thought Hubby bought me some Godiva yesterday, and inside the assortment was a 70% chocolate square. I have to say, it was just marvelous. Smooth as silk and very lightly sweet, no bitterness.
  8. You and me both, houstonmacbro. My father-in-law, though, is a whole different ball game. I bought that to put in his Xmas stocking because he basically has no taste buds left and LOVES that super bitter chocolate. *gags* I don't get it.
  9. The darkest I have seen is Dagoba Organic Chocolate. It is their "Eclipse" bar, at 87% cacao. It's pretty doggone pure. I found it at Rice Epicurean.
  10. Too bad we can't have a commuter line running down those UP tracks!
  11. Thanks! It's been a rather uneventful day, which I find as I get older, is a good thing. Now the countdown to Baby #2's grand entrance, sometime between Feb 26 and Mar 14. We'll see!
  12. I think it's just all a big conspiracy to get us to pay for radio, and we all are falling for it, aren't we? Matt and I just got XM ourselves, but not before we got really pissed off that we felt like we had to. The shape of the airwaves is changing and not for the better.
  13. Is this how we "do things in Texas"? 2 men shot in back according to autopsy I don't feel real sorry for the men, or that twit of a girlfriend who seems to love on-air theatrics about what a wonderful person her fiance was (yeah, right)...but shooting someone in the back? Isn't that what most Texans call cowardly?
  14. Yes, please. I have the newsletter but I can't find the cost vs. estimate info, would that be on TXDOT's site?
  15. Trae, that really has nothing to do with it. I mean, no one's calling the Violent Femmes, Marilyn Manson, or Trent Reznor model citizens, ya know? The guy was a thug. Thugs can be singers, it happens every day. But let's not pretend the man was something he wasn't. If my kids were listening to that crap, I'd have to wonder what else they were doing. There's no such thing as a "natural" death--just ask Dr.G (an ME on Discovery Health). All deaths point to a malfunction of an organ or system within the body. I think it's remarkable it's being reported in that way without an autopsy yet. If you die in your sleep, it is usually due to stroke or heart attack. At age 33, there ain't much that's natural about that.
  16. Reminds me of an episode of Roseanne where she celebrates her new job: "Okay, everybody, we're goin' to Sizzler, and everyone gets their own plate!" Is Sizzler any better than Golden Corral? 'Cause that place is NASTY!
  17. Charming lyrics, really. I'm sure he was an outstanding citizen and role model to kids and adults alike.
  18. Can you provide a link for that info, Red? I'd be interested in checking that out.
  19. Got a newsletter in the mail from Culberson's camp this week. The stats are showing the Katy Freeway project is the fastest freeway construction project of its kind to ever be completed in the United States. It will be finished, totally, in the next 8 months, according to the latest information. So far, Williams Bros. has beaten every single deadline they've been given (earning their big bonuses). It's actually pretty amazing how fast it is going! Yeah, it sucks, I mean, I live right near the stacks at BW 8 and I-10, so unfortunately, I got no sleep when they were ripping them out from midnight until 5AM, and yeah, having that closed down a lot is a pain, but I can't complain too much, because it's getting done pretty quickly.
  20. Niche, I think you're looking a little too deeply here, or taking it too literally, I'm not sure which one.
  21. Couldn't agree more, and I am definitely not a bleeding heart liberal! I also don't get the Gen-X reference, being as I am also a Gen X'er. I for one have been impressed with how the Gen-Xers have turned out! I thought we were a lost cause for sure
  22. No, he said, "BOOM, you're dead." That is what is being quoted this morning and what is on the tape.
  23. I guess I'm the only one that thinks the homeowner was an idiot and should have stayed in his house. It wasn't his property, and he took the law into his own hands, IMHO. Whether or not the burglars deserved to die is a moot point. This man only makes it easier for anti-gun liberals to prove their point. He had "no choice"? Yeah, he did, actually.
