Re: SHC Round 3 Instant Replay Thread [SPOILERS]

Ugh. I even put the 9-pointer in the wrong frakking language. Neg.

I'll content myself with going 3/5 in a sports category, which, for me, is not bad.

Re: SHC Round 3 Instant Replay Thread [SPOILERS]

Are those books worthwhile, Nick? They seem to be well-received books, but I just couldn't get into them. I started to read the first novel, Quicksilver , but couldn't finish it. There's something about his style of writing that -- to me, at least -- almost makes it a chore to continue. I'm a huge ...

Re: SHC Round 3 Instant Replay Thread [SPOILERS]

My knowledge of the history of that period was gleaned mostly from reading Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle, and, fortunately, my memory served me correctly as to who was king in 1687.

Nice board today. After my performance the last two weeks, I was pleased to start on a reasonably high note.

FWIW, I was measured for a tux by Men's Wearhouse two weeks ago, and my outseam was measured. My inseam was also measured, fortunately in a manner that did not warrant prosecution as sexual assault.

Re: 2010-11 Tournament of Champions Standings (spoilers)

I'm not actually sure I'd place Jay Rhee in the top grouping (purely a gut feeling, but I didn't perceive him as quite as strong as the other four), but I don't know who else I'd put in his place; there seems to be a bit of distance between the top four and the rest of the field. Perhaps a case coul...

I appear to be 9/10 today, which would make me happier if I were the only one doing so well.

Re: Introduce Yourself Here

I would have, but Reddpen had said that Kelly M. often attends J! auditions in Seattle, so I had to plan my summer vacation around crashing the auditions there instead! Seriously, I don't follow the NL especially closely, so by the time I'd noticed the season the Pirates are having (thanks to TWiB)...
