28 ounce ribeye....where is the drool emoticom when you need it

And love your green bean move- I'd have done the same thing

Not a fan of frog legs though. Ick.

And you know what they say about raw oysters....

This was my response to their email offering me the position:

"Thank you,

Having heard about the salary structure and hours, I'm no longer interested in the position. I feel that the job listing was pretty misleading. A more accurate description would have saved me a few hours of my life, along with half a tank of gas. I'm sure you'll find plenty of other recent grads to exploit though. Good luck in your search for warm bodies."
Good for you. Companies like this should be prosecuted.

Had fun grilling a steak on our new electric grill... until I tried to clean it. The third degree burns should setle down in about an hour. The peas and white rice as well as the BBQ mushrooms were a good touch and the Wife like them which will make her happy. A happy Wifey makes it easier to be in the house at night.

I think mushrooms are very underated.
The Bride buys these big ones, size of a hockey puck, brushes on olive oil and grills them outside. Man, are those good. Not good enough to make me a vegetarian but good.

Must be Portabellos. Those are among the best mushrooms in the world and to die for if made right. Raw or BBQ'd, those are the best tasting mushrooms imaginable.

I know which place you went to! One of my favorites! I love how they bring you several different types of bread. The only thing I forgot to tell you was to order it with the hash browns. Let them lie in the juice from the steak, then devour!

How was your flight home? I hope you made it relatively unscathed..

Same here. I can't tolerate them for more than two minutes. Instant migraine.

On the ride home from a rather boring playoff loss to the Devils in 2003, my friends in the back seat decided to beat the guy driving with thunder sticks while he tried to exit the parking garage and get onto 93 north. I was riding shotgun and fearful for my life.

I went for the first interview for that very same position several years ago. They called me, of course, for a second interview but I declined. I had a friend who recently went through the entire interview process and he gave me all the details before I got the call for interview # 2.

I didn't eat very much bread, I wanted to save room for the good ****

Flights home were a lot smoother, and I took half the Valium compared to the trip out there. All in all it was a good trip, but still a little shaky from all the medication.

If you can't make enough noise with your mouth, two hands, and two feet, you ain't doing it right.

Good morning. Does anyone know where to d/l the 2013 schedule for iPhone/iPad? I have the Bruins app, but I want it on my calendar. I had the original schedule - I think from NESN. Can't find the new one. TIA.

ETA: ... Let me google that for you, Susan... Found it.
