Yes! I love surprises like that.

Ugh, why do we DO that.

She's a badass. A bulldog. A boss. A battering ram. Whatever. But leave "bitch" for the knuckle draggers, please.

Re: No State of the Union (of Soviet Socialist Republics) Speech

It's now being reported that the Speaker of the House didn't consult with either the Secret Service nor Homeland Defense before writing/posting her letter, and those two departments are saying they are up to the task and that security for the SOTU speech is not being hampered by the shutdown. If tr...

It's both. Total boss move on her part.

Re: Favorite Christmas music

  <procrastination> And I have an old German favorite: "Das ist ein Ros Entsprungen" (there is a rose blooming) It's "Es," not "Das." Not sure why I felt the need to point that out. Love that carol. Album favorites: Best overall: A Charlie Brown Christmas , Vince Guaral...

Re: How Good is the Goodman Foundation for Madison?

Ok, I did the assigned background reading... Assigned? *sigh* As far as whether high school and college football will be around in the future — we can't have this argument in a sensible way because nobody knows. Get back to me in 25 years, or 40. Don't forget where collegiate boxing ended up. D'you...

Re: How Good is the Goodman Foundation for Madison?

I am happy to know the proposed stadium is for other sports in addition to football, because I don't see a big future for high school (or college) football in the long run. American football is a many-billion-dollar industry. The profit motive is too strong for it to just peter out. More likely: th...

Re: Random thoughts

Back in the day, drinking straws were made out of paper, not plastic. Why haven't they been reintroduced? They have been. Cornstarch, too. I haven't seen a ton of them around Madison, but last time we were at Mint Mark they had paper straws that looked like green bamboo: https://i.imgur.com/y3CSsIm...

Re: Trite, overused phrases that need to be banned in 2019

The one I hear often on news shows and is starting to grate on me is: "by the end of the day." D'you mean "at the end of the day," used to mean something like "when you get right down to it"? When I hear "by the end of the day" it's usually literal, if a litt...

Re: So what are you reading?

I'm listening to Endurance: My Year in Space, A Lifetime of Discovery by Scott Kelly. Kelly spent a year on the ISS while his identical twin, Mark (also an astronaut), stayed home as control subject in the NASA Twins Study. I usually listen to music while I row, but this book makes it easy to pile o...
