    Nah. Just let spins become simpler elements again. :p

    the Zayak rule:

    keep it
    change it
    get rid of it
    purple I insist that one of the options above is redundant

    Keep it.

    And re: #462, I had the buttermilk fried chicken last night, y'all. :p

    Just got back from a whole's day worth of open house touring.

    Would you buy:

    1) a nice home in a nice area of so-so town A with limited price apprecation potential; everything up to date and no major reno needed
    2) a so-so-home in a so-so-area of marginally nicer town B with modest price appreciation potential; everything passable but some long-term reno needed
    3) a fixer-upper in a so-so-area of even marginally nicer town C with sizzling price appreciation potential; $200K worth of rehab identified but not yet done

    All 3 would cost the same (at the very limit of your price range).

    Having already lived through major renos I'd go with option #1

    I've got a chill. Should I make

    Hot chocolate with Bailey's
    Coffee with Bailey's
    or
    green tea (minus the Bailey's ;) )

    Here's my pic of the buttermilk fried chicken: boneless breast with ginger-vanilla sweet potato mash, tasso ham cream gravy, and Blue Lake green beans w/parmesan. Lightly fried, not to excess like KFC; almost refreshing. :watch:

    Topkapi Palace, if only because I haven't been to Istanbul yet whereas I've been to London at least 7 times.

    What would you do on an upcoming fall Bay Area weekend?
    "Eat Real" festival :watch:
    Massive outdoors S&M festival :saint:
    Architectural house tour, with private reception with the architect :psoty:
    All of the above :cheer2:

    Nay, as I don't have premium cable at the moment (and not missing it one bit). :drama:

    If I was tuning into HGTV (or Food Network, it seems these days?), I'd see if my favorite carpenter was on, though. :swoon: :grope:

    Gingers

    Yay :grope:
    Nay :scream:
    I'm equal opportunity anyway :saint:

    I've always wanted a snowmobile. :cold: Pacemakers are helpful though. Standard time is :blah:

    What kind of skate student are you?
    Highly talented, poorly disciplined (Nagasu, Bobek, Bowman)
    Less naturally talented, highly disciplined (Flatt, Lysacek, Fumie)
    Both (Kwaaaan :encore:)
    Neither. (Zamboni driver)

    Asada already did it at the last Olympics, and isn't she the only one out there who's fit enough to do it, and also likely to attempt it?

    Boring Suburbia (1-1.5 is just too much time to spend driving 10 times a week)

    Yay
    or
    Nay
