My dog's name is Brutus.  If I had a girl dog, she'd probably Scarlet or Carmen.  I wouldn't never name a kid that though, kids names are already out of control.

I would have thought that by all the former jiggly gifs that most of the 11W community was okay with women going to gyms.  My bad.

I really hate when there are no mini-carts available at Kroger.  I have a bizarre dislike of full sized carts when I'm only buying a dozen things that are too heavy for the baskets.

I also hate when this one particular woman spends (or any person, really) over an hour on the only step-mill at the gym.  This also applies to people using the only squat rack.

Right before Thanksgiving, I was pulling into a spot at a very busy Kroger.  The car on my right had their drivers side passenger door open loading their groceries (which I didn't see until I'd already started turning) so I patiently waited for her to finish before pulling completely into the spot.  The lady proceeds to leave her cart exactly where it was, clearly blocking the parking spot I was pulling into.  I had to put my car into park and go move her cart - while simultaneously giving her a death stare- to finish pulling in.  Of course she acted as if she didn't see me, but COME ON.. not only are you incredibly lazy but ridiculously rude!

I went to a small private school in Ohio for my first two years and then transferred to OSU because they offered the major I wanted.  I thought I really loved the small school until I got to OSU and realized how much MORE I loved it.  It was what college was supposed to be, at least in my eyes.  On my first day of classes, I'll never forget the speaker who said that you go to college for a degree but if that's all you with then you've wasted your money.  I wouldn't love OSU nearly as much as I do today if I hadn't went there, but that's just me.  I'm not saying it's not possible because plenty of diehard fans took other paths after high school, I'm related to several good examples of that in fact.  Regardless of football, Ohio State has shaped my life and who I am today and I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Find some random thing that has Star Wars on it.  Like an oven mitt or full body adult Stormtrooper PJ onesie.  Stores are chock full of that stuff.

I agree.  Columbus has about eight colleges or universities that I can think of off the top of my head.  It's far too big to be a true "college town" in my opinion.
-Capital U
-Otterbein U
-Ohio Dominican
-Columbus State
-Franklin U
-OWU (Delaware, but still very close)

Well he has the fortune of The Game always being during cold weather, and from the picture he is wearing a trench coat which would help bulk around the legs.  If you fold and roll the banner carefully, it would be feasible to get it under your clothes perhaps  going up one leg, around the neck and down the other leg.  He said it's 8 feet, that would fit.  It would have to be a very thin nylon-like fabric.   Hm, now I want to try it- Myth-busters, OSU- style.

But then remember he died at 57 from esophagus cancer.    To add a little Ohio trivia, he died married to a much younger Lauren Bacall, whom he married at Malabar Farrms near Mansfield.

Of all the gins joints, in all the towns in the world, she walks into mine...

Yep.  Casablanca.  Good call.

As far as classics go, I've always been partial to Singin' In The Rain too.

A couple friends and I have made a point to see every movie nominated for Best Picture the last five years or so.  Not that a good movie has to be nominated, but a few that aren't as obvious that I've really liked that were nominated are Argo, Dallas Buyers Club, Django Unchained, The Artist, The King's Speech.
