Not true about HYP. It's need-blind admission and more than half the students receive financial aid. You may still need to take out loans, but because the financial package is so generous, you don't really need to take out more than the Stafford. Even before the free/minimal contribution policy was instituted, they made it well affordable, and my brother & I paid much less than friends who went to Northwestern/U Chicago, etc. The parental contribution is capped, so the more siblings get in, the better the deal.

Meet Me in St. Louis. Not a strictly Christmas movie, since it covers a whole year, but it has a transcendant Judy Garland singing "Have yourself a merry little christmas."
I'm also partial to festive scenes in non-Christmas movies, like the "Bastogne" episode of Band of Brothers.

Documentary: The ten years war by HBO. Rivalry between Bo and Woody. Must-see for all fans.

I like the high incidence of bad puns in their signs. However, my two favorites are "Brutus killed Caesar" and "Urban Meyer Doesn't Spend Enough Time with His Family."

Not even by Kliff Kingsbury, "the poor man's Ryan Gosling?"
|14 weeks 6 days ago||I didn't think much of it||
I didn't think much of it until the Rutgers fan behind me just started calling Harbaugh classless, etc. He could not get over it, as if the 4 touchdowns up until then were nothing, but the 2-pointer was the equivalent of calling his mother a whore. Is there a story behind this? Would love to know if Harbaugh has some beef.

You can make it in under 5 minutes in a food processor or stand mixer using the dough hook. I add a bit more olive oil to the dough and divide the dough and put the dough balls into oiled plastic zip-loc bags before letting it rise overnight in the refrigerator (actually develops more flavor that way). When assembling the pizza, make sure you sprinkle additional sea salt or kosher salt to the exposed part of the crust.

We're planning to take NJ Transit too. Does anyone have an opinion on whether we should buy tickets in advance or try to get them when we arrive?

It's for emphasis. Some of our greatest authors took to dialect (or made up their own spelling) when it suited the occasion.

Forecast is 40% chance of rain at gametime. I'm waiting another few days to decide whether to get tickets.

Blondie's is more of an MSU bar, so I try to steer clear.
I'd invite you over, Wendy, but work has taken a toll on my living space, and we're about to put on the hazmat suits and get in there this weekend.

It's clear he didn't watch the games, just repeating talking points.

I actually love Nicholas Cage because he's usually in a different movie than everyone else in the movie, and he's always memorable. However he was the worst part of "Captain Corelli's Mandolin," such that I can't even remember if the rest of the movie was good or bad. You've got Penelope Cruz and a wonderful Christian Bale taking it seriously, and Cage hamming it up with a red-sauce-spaghetti Italian-American accent.

The CIA created and funded the crack epidemic in South Central L.A.
I think this has more legs than not, since we know one leg of the facts is true (Iran-Contra). "Kill the Messenger" was a very good movie, but it was totally buried and unpublicized, perhaps through "encouragement."

What would be fitting is if Bran warged into Summer and led the pack of dogs to turn on Ramsey.

Yeah, it's more effective to call. If his secretaries & assistants get sick of fielding complaining calls, they'll complain to him directly.

How far did you get? We made it in about 1 mile, because we just wanted to take a look (rain had washed out part of the trail path when we were there), but we want to go back and do the full trail someday. Hope you finished off the week with some bloody marys at the St. Regis.

The first 10 minutes of Up had me crying non-stop. I can't even think about it without tearing up.
