Thanks dg, rj, and ellie! Feeling nostalgic now that my days at University of Minnesota are completely over. Walking the halls the other day and leading tours made me want to still be a student there, but I am really excited to jump over the river and start at Wisconsin (River Falls).

*giggling*...I know it's Friday, but blame it on "Ghostbuster's Day," here's another from Throwback Thursday :D

[on the phone while all the clocks chime at once]
"Dr. Emmett Brown: Are those my clocks I hear?
Marty McFly: Yeah, it's 8:00.
Dr. Emmett Brown: Perfect! My experiment worked! They're all exactly 25 minutes slow!
Marty McFly: Wait a minute. Wait a minute, Doc. Are you telling me that it's 8:25?
Dr. Emmett Brown: Precisely.
Marty McFly: Damn! I'm late for school!"

Sorry about that jumble below. It was supposed to be the Ghostbusters logo, but the site messed it up worse than a baby with reflux.

Rebel, sounds like you are managing well. If strange is all that it felt to you, you are coping nicely.

Mad, now that just might be down right scary brother

Dirt, I sneak the "lurkers" at times to pay homage to Gold just as I suspect you do tooooooo

...Annette, DG, & RJ, I'm also in the "I've never had spumoni" club...

...*giggling* Not even sure what spumoni is, but for some unknown reason my sleep-deprived brain is free-associating Jeff Spicoli from that word --->

>>>[Spicoli has had a pizza delivered to class]
"Mr. Hand: Am I hallucinating here? Just what in the hell do you think you're doing?
Jeff Spicoli: Learning about Cuba, and having some food.
Mr. Hand: Mr.Spicoli, You're on dangerous ground here. You're causing a major disturbance on my time.
Jeff Spicoli: I've been thinking about this, Mr. Hand. If I'm here and you're here, doesn't that make it our time? Certainly, there's nothing wrong with a little feast on our time.
Mr. Hand: [takes away box of pizza from Spicoli] You're absolutrly right, Mr. Spicoli. It is our time. Yours, mine and everyone else's in this room. But it is my class.
[calls up a couple of students]
Mr. Hand: Mr. Spicoli has been kind enough to bring us a snack. Be my guest. Help yourselves. Get a Good one."<<<

...Sleep well & have a fun Saturday all! :)

Dirt, and what red blooded American wouldn't love French Fries...hahaha Plus they are probably the unhealthiest of the lot.

May all you guys and girls find what you are searching for this weekend....and hopefully it's not your keys, mind, car, soul, religion or clothes.

Mad, Drive...just drive thru BR during the day so you can eat some good food.

Dirt, thanks. You can't go wrong with that starch group.
