    if you played baseball as a kid tailor, or even just had a group of friends you regularly hung out and played with, its an utterly fantastic movie. there is a lot that the movie is about, but one of the things that drives the plot is that they have hit a baseball over the fence at the sandlot, into a yard guarded by "the beast" and they have to get the ball back.

    I should have given you an "in the middle" option---that's kinda where my dressing goes too.

    if I put the croutons on before the dressing, they slide off! the dressing gives them something to hold them in place.

    what, no garbanzo beans??

    ever have raisins on a salad?

    i'll drink plain water if im out and about from the occasional fountain or bottled water in the middle of working if im otherwise unprepared, but at home my water has an unpleasant mineral taste to it so I use little packets of flavoring. right now ive got a half gallon of "lemonade" and a half gallon of "blazin' blueberry" in the fridge.

    reading a "page-turner" late into the night to see what happens, or putting it aside until tomorrow in order to go to sleep?

    Garbanzo beans - yes, raisins - no. We have well water for home use... tastes nasty too, so we drink and cook with bottled water; bought some Mio flavorings for the occasional taste boost to bottled water since I do not drink sodas.

    I would put the book aside.

    Writing on paper (letters/notes/etc): Cursive or hen scratch hand printing ?

    over the past large handful of years ive gotten back into letter writing as opposed to emailing, and its been both great, and a chore at the same time. I think when I first started back I wrote in cursive, but quickly found out that my printing was a bit more legible, so I overwhelmingly go with that.

    returning to a country you've been to before and liked visiting, or going to a country you've not been to before?

    Never been out of the Untied States of America... pray I live long enough to visit my Brother in Italy.

    I remember your mentioning your hope for a trip to Italy before tailor. summer is a good time to visit!

    I think grace slick has one of my all time favorite voices, so the early stuff for me.

    I would be equally inept in either and have never had the privilege, even in my brief boy scout years, to try one... Tragic in the sense that the American River(s) and others are so accessible here. I have an odd tendency to calling kayaks "yackety-yak's".

    Bus or train ?

    there must be some place nearby then tailor where you can rent one or the other for pretty cheap. although neither require a lot of skill or any experience to enjoy yourself, id suggest a canoe as a first go.

    for a large handful of miles in a large city where the subway isn't an option, the bus is okay. but for long distances, the train for sure. ive taken some trains in Europe but never partook of the famed "euro-rail" pass that if I remember rightly, pretty much allowed unlimited miles on for a limited amount of time.

    having to watch a half dozen zombie musicals or giving up Roquefort blue cheese dressing for 6 months?

    Plenty of places to rent, I'm sure... maybe a rafting excursion in the future on the American River... who knows. Never been on a subway in the NY sense... closest, I guess, would be the BART system in the SF Bay Area which I loved using... especially on day jaunts to SF that went under the SF Bay, and to El Cerrito Del Norte for bowling at a favorite venue of mine that also had a fine restaurant for a steak dinner with salad including garbanzo beans

    lol... I do not like zombies, Sam I am, neither here nor there, nor in the ęther, nor anywhere. I don't like them in a soup, I don't like them in a chicken coop, zombies to me tain't any fun, in the dark or in the sun... I do not like zombies, Sam I am, so guess I'd have to do without my Roquefort for a time (mic drop)... slam!

    Watched "Searching for Bobby Fisher" early this morning on free Pluto streaming telly station and was impressed with Ben Kingsley's character... which has almost nothing to do with this question: Gandhi or Mother Teresa ?

    oh go this summer tailor. the older one gets, the less likely such wonderful things happen.

    its been a long time since ive been to the city. hard to imagine going back, and maybe all the more so hard to imagine taking the subway. both have certainly deteriorated over the years.

    I tried reading pride and prejudice and zombies some years ago but really couldn't get into it. however, I recently saw the movie preview and it looked lots better than my experience with the book, so I think i'll be watching that in the not too distant future.

    that's a fun question, maybe the tension between changing the world, and changing my little corner of the world. slight edge to mother Teresa. ive got biographies of both, maybe i'll read one after I finish elvis Presley.

    having to watch the princess bride and read watership down or giving up anything avocado for a month?

    (watching the princess bride AND reading watership down) OR (giving up anything avocado for a month)... hmmm, classic double bind argument (hate those... drive me nuts)... at least the avocado is only for a month, prolly gone longer... so avocado.

    Skipping rocks on a body of water or putting a penny on the railroad tracks ?
