As someone who lived there, I preferred the fall and spring, when things were quieter. :-) It is gorgeous the other seasons, though. Kings Beach was just such a zoo during the summer.
Truckee is fantastic. I used to love browsing the little shops there, and I really miss Red Truck at the airport. Really great food, and it's fun to watch the planes take off and land. And now I'm craving their food . . . :-)
North Lake! :-)
I used to work in the cage at the Tahoe Biltmore. Just moved back to Ohio from there a little over a year ago.
He looks a lot like one of my cats, Angus, who is so handsome he is also known as the Tiger Prince.
And I just admitted this to a bunch of people I don't know. I must really be running on fumes. Bar exam tomorrow, woohoo! *cries*
I remember watching the Buckeyes as a kid (1980s) and being nervous every time they threw the ball, especially if it was a long bomb (watching many of the games on tv with my fond-of-complaining grandmother probably didn't help things). I still get a bit of that feeling, but now it's more excited nervousness. I can't wait for the season to start!
It's too late, I'm afraid. I'm already admitted in California! *evil laugh*
I wish I knew! I have family in Columbus and could've stayed with them. Instead, I have to drive further and pay for a hotel (and I don't sleep well in hotels). Grrr!
Also, thank you!
If those donors are still feeling generous, I've got a pile of student loans that need to be paid off. :-) Those are some crazy fundraising totals.
Off topic: Bar exam starts Tuesday. Ugh. Any recommendations for bar exam hype songs? When I took the CA bar, I just played "Mama Said Knock You Out" on repeat, but I'd appreciate some additional material given the long drive from CLE to Wilmington. Thanks in advance! :-)
When I was practicing law in the Central Valley of CA, I had to argue to the Franchise Tax Board that the product my client was selling was manure, not fertilizer, and therefore the client did not owe sales tax.
Hours of research into the definition of "manure." I shit you not. :-)
Bert. Yorkies. Swimsuit. South Beach.
I can't decide if the mental image is funny or heave-inducing. Both? I mean, I'm in no position to fat shame anyone, but I'm also not putting myself in a swimsuit ANYWHERE, especially not South Beach.
Think of the people, Bert! They already lost LeBron and Dwyane. Don't make them lose their eyesight!
Cognac. Or, a Very Skilled Offensive Player.
Also, KD better start working on his flops!
It won't matter if Curry misses it, because he'll have been fouled. Or rather "fouled."
I concur. 1979.
No social media in either high school or college, thank goodness! I don't think there were camera phones when I was in college, either. Whew!
My sis got free tickets to a Britney Spears show. She said that even though it was (she assumed) mostly lip synced, the performance as a whole was fantastic.
I'll have to check them out!
(Not the Seven Mary Three riots. Really? Lol)
Wow, really? I'm not denying her voice, but I would have thought it'd put me to sleep! :-) Cool!
I don't listen to country much, but from what I've heard (my ears, not word of mouth), she has a really nice voice.
Being child-free I don't know the Wiggles. I give you all the upvotes (ok, I only have one, but in spirit! ) for being a good parent. :-)
They did a free show at a burger joint in my old hood (Hodad's, Ocean Beach, San Diego) around that time. I sincerely regret letting my hatred of crowds get the better of me on that one. :-(
I can't and won't judge! A great show is a great show!
I still can't get over the ridiculousness of their lyric "did we make it to the milky way," though. Bruh . . . We kinda made it by default . . .
I still sing along. :-)
Thank you! I took and passed the California bar nine years ago. It's amazing how many things you forget (but also amazing how much you can remember, thankfully!).
The hardest part is being nine years older. I don't have near the energy at 37 that I did at 28. Darn it!
This whole studying for the bar exam thing is really putting a kink in any potential championship celebrating. Boo.
To everyone going: have fun and be safe! Go Cavs, Go CLE!
