  1. Hey guys... Don't hate me for resurrecting this thread. It's been well over a year and I was hoping maybe someone had some kind of new information on this project. Our community toes the property line with this proposed ... monstrosity. I guess I really struggle to see how ONE building, let alone TWO can fit onto the JW's auxiliary parking. If anyone's noticed, they re-did their lot to separate it from the rest of the lot. It's been significantly reduced in size and is raised above the remaining portion of the lot. I don't know what they're thinking really. There's no way Brownway can handle the traffic that would come with the 600-some residents that would live here... Highway6 - apparently you're my neighbor. Edit: Well, I've done a little of my own digging since then. This transaction must've only been done this year. There is no HCAD record for 2007, but there is one currently pending under the Whiteco name: WR SAGE WEST LP 1000 E 80TH PL STE 700 MERRILLVILLE IN 46410-5608 http://www.hcad.org/records/details.asp?ta...t=1303930010002
  2. Ha. Red, I never knew! Sort of makes sense.. I guess. I join tanith27 in his infinite geekdom. Kirzania was my first ever Beast Master on Everquest. I took her over to World of Warcraft in time. Got her up to 70, eventually. I don't recall how I picked the name. Perhaps one too many clicks on the random name generator button?
  3. I was starting to worry too, especially when my coworkers were coming in late after their formal hearings. It wasn't until last week when our i-Settle became available online. I would not expect anything to come of it either. I was insulted by the decrease - if that's what you want to call it. They took about $3,000 off the appraisal value... I wouldn't give them the satisfaction of calling that "throwing a bone" since nothing has been done to our house since 1974 except some new paint and appliances. HCAD is a bunch of lazy slack jaw fools that can't get their rears out of their chairs to go put actual comparisons out there. HAR can put together comparisons better than HCAD can. </rave>
  4. Personally, I am shocked, SHOCKED, that drugs are still used in professional sports.
  5. I am super picky when it comes to my car wash places. I gave up on interior cleanings all together (I do a thousand times better with my old vacuum, Armor-All wipes and some Windex) so the places I go to must have exterior-wash only choices. Mister Car Wash on Voss was hit or miss with me. I've taken both our PT and our Town & Country through it (we joined the membership thing briefly) but more than half the times I took the cars through, there would still be dirt on the bumpers or bird droppings on the roof, whatever. I liked the Mister Car Wash (Signature?) on Kirby for awhile until the 4th time when the grill on the front of the PT was obviously not getting cleaned at all. I dunno, I think Houston's drive-thru car washes are generally all pretty shoddy. I really miss Mike's Car Wash (exterior only - they give you a super-absorbant paper towel and some coin operated vacuums at the back of the wash.) They would ALWAYS get the salt and street-snow-grime off every square inch of the van.
  6. You forgot kinaras, you insensitive clod! No, seriously. It's a real tree or none at all.
  7. I was pretty sure this was about Drew's (www.fark.com) big idea to trademark the term NSFW. It was, of course, a joke.
  8. Ha! I knew I should've checked here last night. I was coming home from work, going south on 610. I saw two cruisers drafting a POS going northbound and just figured it for a drug bust gone bad. And then... 4 more cruisers, an ambulance, a chopper. It was just like Blues Brothers, JLW.
  9. I love this idea. I agree that a concrete structure would probably be a Bad Idea, therefore I suggest the soft barrier - such as the ones they use at the railroad crossings on Westheimer and San Felipe inside the loop. This way, most people are not going to physically run through one but there was an emergency or an accident, it most likely wouldn't do any more damage than is already done to the vehicle. Same if an emergency vehicle was trying to get through... I don't care if you know the route or you don't. There's nothing safe or smart about power merging or forcing your way over when you can just use the *gasp* NEXT EXIT and u-turn. They need to put up all kinds of soft barriers at 59 and 610. I hate the punks who jump in line at the last minute. Same goes for the exits at Post Oak and Woodway on 610 south/northbound and the HOV lanes out 10.
  10. Problem solved: Get XM. I say this and I only have one receiver in one car.. But still. I gave up on radio a loooooong time ago. Generally, the only time I listen is around Christmastime to Sunny 99.1 because they just play Christmas music and there aren't too many commercials. And NPR for the classical stuff. I make LOTS of CDs to listen to also...
  11. Bocce ball is great fun. We play every year on the family beach trip. I really suck at it (someone once told me I throw like a girl...) but it gets easier exponentially with the amount of alcohol you imbibe. (Bocce Ball. See: Drinking Games) Only if they rent Jarts.
  12. Ditto on this!! I wish they could build another theatre or two that was "no children under 18," period. The only thing about Alamo is that they permit kids with (a) parent(s) and I find a lot of the time, the parent could care less their kid is talking loudly, kicking on the seat in front of them, throwing food, etc. Last movie I went to see was Beowulf. All of 7 people were in the theater until two moms walked in late with their 8-10 year old sons. (To sit right in front of me, of course.) Naturally, Beowulf is NOT a kid-friendly film and I don't know what the heck they were thinking as the kids were screaming half the time in fear. Btw, did people NOT read this story in high school? These same mothers didn't seem to understand the story or the ending. They were more than happy to voice their opinions too, but whatever. Another reason that I too wait for most movies to come out on DVD.
  13. I had the strangest dream last night. I dreamt I was a muffler. ... I woke up this morning and I was exhausted.
  14. Should I go into the tunnels around feeding time and start shouting "HAIF! HAIF!"
