As opposed to you offering her hugs in a dimly lit supply closet? Hahaha

I hate them. I won't shed a tear when Bozo kicks the bucket.

I was born in Western, MA in the 1980s and I didn't say or use an area code until i went to college in Boston in 2005. We only got a second prefix in my town around high school so everyone's number was 4 digits before then.

I still have a 413 cell number so when I call a business in western, MA and give them my cell, my eastern mass ways kick in and I start with "413" and the clerk gets confused because well thats what every number starts with.

My dad had some good stories of having to walk home (from another town) from catholic elementary school if he forgot his homework. Also leaving food cooking in the oven/stove on Sunday when they went to church.

Back in the 80's I was in Florida and had a dream that the winning Florida Lottery number the next night would be the Massachusetts area code. So I bet $10 on both 617 and 508.

The winning number was 413

I do a whole project that revolves around SHR Three Rings of Government.

Also, I heard "Old Days" by Chicago this afternoon and thought of this thread.

Absolutely. I love adrenaline, so fearing for my life should be just the trick to get it flowing. Plus I promised my son I'd go with him.

I liked the Magic Garden. I was super young obviously, but I loved the two ladies on there cuz they looked like they were trying to smuggle midgets under those extremely tight turtlenecks. Not sure as a four year old that I should have noticed that kind of stuff though.

I used to love Romper Room, but they never said my name at the end. Always hated that.

Funny. I must have missed the invite.

Was looking at a pellet stove backyard pizza oven contraption the other day, and I have to say I was really intrigued.

Ha! My menu is crushing it this week. Weather finally turned and I got all kinds of inspired.

A pizza stone on a regular grill will give you excellent quality pizza, if you're not up for putting it on the grate directly. I don't know if a pizza oven is really worth it in terms of specialty outdoor cooking equipment.

I want one of those green egg grill/smoker things in the worst way.

While it's not practical, I love the idea of making a pizza in 60 seconds. I'm infatuated with it to a very disturbing level.

I used to want one of the green eggs too, but after doing research, the smoker I really want is like 5 grand.
