It's an older and more posh name for the sport.

From 27bslash6:
I can get by the escaped convict falling into an open air particle accelerator (we have one in the vacant lot next door and I am always telling my 8 year old to stop playing near it), I can even get by the space slime landing coincidently metres from Peter and jumping on his bike... What I cant get past is Mary Jane. What a fucking bitch. In the first movie she is letting the school bully do her, then she lets the rich guy, then Peter has a turn. In the second movie she goes through about eighteen different guys before abandoning her big expensive wedding after realising Peter is spiderman. In the third film I think she does about sixty guys and whinges a lot about peter saving lives instead of coming to the theatre to watch her crap acting. Why does he put up with her? It makes no sense and is the one glaring discrepancy in an otherwise completely scientifically believable movie.

and at some personal risk, since I'm talking about this before Thanksgiving...

I'm planning on doing something I haven't done in years: baking tons of cookies and giving them out to all and sundry over the holidays. To survive the process, I'm already baking one or two batches each week and freezing them.

I've made chocolate chip, snickerdoodles (and I'll be making more of those), hermits (ditto), peanut butter cookies and sugar cookies (not from scratch - I can never get the dough right, so I bought Pilsbury's finest.)

What else should I be making?

"Man, I just wish I could vote for Bush again." That's what I plan on saying when people ask me what I think about the elections or who I'm voting for. Aside from how it directly touches my industry (health insurance), I try not to comment much on politics in polite conversation.

Mrs. Y and I ordered Chinese delivery for dinner tonight from a place down the street, and when the time came to pick fortunes, my pick read thus: "Rarely do great beauty and great virtue dwell together as they do in you."

Not really a fortune, per se. More of a flattery cookie than anything. My wife's pick, however, was a real fortune.
