Usually the socks were each a different neon like hot pink and hot green.

I think I'm a little older than some here...does anyone remember toe socks?  '70s fashion faux pas.  I preferred tube socks, with blue stripes, pulled all the way up to the bottom of my knees.   :D

Hackey sack is a good idea.... but if they have a little quad with some grass a set of Jarts would take the cake!

Never got the hang of Hackey sack, but I loved Jarts.  You could put a serious hurt on someone with those things...

i used to love twinkies when i was a kid, so i had some a few years ago and was very disappointed. 

Try them deep-fried.  Everything is better deep-fried!  Some two-bit vendor at a hokey local festival in my area serves up deep-fried Twinkies every summer and they are absolutely addictive.  He dips them in batter, dunks them in bubblin' hot trans-fat, and lets them cook for about a minute or so.  Food of the gods.

Deep-fried Twinkies and a cold draft.  Now that's real food.

ps: your recipe reminds me of my roommate from over the summer - the first male roommate I've ever had - who decided to cook dinner for me once.  He was making his specialty, which he called "Cheesy Mac Daddy Surprise."  It consisted of several boxes of Kraft blue box mac and cheese, several pounds of ground beef, a few cans of salsa, and salt and pepper.  I asked him what the "suprise" part was.  He responded, "There's corn in it."

...This might be a guy thing.

That sounds like deer camp food.  Lots of carbs--need that energy to walk the hills.  At least he used Kraft M+C and not some cheap store-brand crap.

Sigh...I really like "guy things"--red meat, football (damn OSU), deer hunting, guns, building stuff, fixing plumbing (OK, I really don't like fixing plumbing, but I can swear like a guy when I have to fix it).  I'm just a grown-up tomboy.  Oh, yeah, I'm a firefighter, too.  

I think I'll qualify as a non-trad at LS, and not just because I'm 45.   ;D

I love venison. I haven't had it for a very long time, but I'll have to see if I can remedy that that, just so I can try this. Do you recommend butter or oil for sauteeing the onions?

I usually use olive oil for sauteing...sometimes I'll mix it half-and-half with unsalted butter.

Do you deer hunt?  I think that's what I'll miss the most when I start law school in the fall--having the time to deer hunt in SE Ohio.   :(

Homemade Hunter's "Beefaroni":

Brown one pound of ground venison.  Drain and set aside cooked meat.  Saute one small onion, diced, until translucent.  Remove onion from saute pan, mix with meat in large bowl.  Cook one pound elbow macaroni according to package directions.  Drain and mix in with meat/onion.  Mix in one 15 oz. can of tomato sauce and one small can of condensed Campbell's tomato soup (do not dilute with water).  Season to taste with salt, pepper, garlic powder, dried basil, dried oregano, etc.  Eat.  Good and good for you.   ;)

(and, yup, I'll be making some of that with ground venison from the deer in my avatar...)

And I will pass judgment on those who eat sodium for dinner.  (Cup-o-noodle eaters fall into this category too, so fair play.) 

Ramen noodles.  Ten for a buck.  Those and bologna sandwiches pilfered from the refectory at Heidelberg got me through my junior and senior years.

i realize it's an objectively disgusting food product, but I still eat it for those late nights when i'm somewhat irrational, and it's always struck me as disturbing that the stuff seems to be radioactive.  anybody else eat chef boyardee stuff? 

OMG, I ate this stuff while a high school student.  Mom died my freshman year, Dad worked second shift at a local auto factory, and my sister and I fended for ourselves after school.  Beefaroni and Ravioli were my absolute favorites.  God, I could eat it out of the can unheated.  No wonder my LDL cholesterol is so frickin' high--I think that congealed Beefaroni fat is still clogging my arteries.   :(

You ate gubmint cheese.

Wow.  I'd forgotten about "gubmint cheese."  Dined on some while in college in the early '80's--not bad stuff.  Mmmmmm, grilled gubmint cheese sammiches... ;D

so, when your listening to one of your younger classmates, say, sub 22, talking about how they are in love and this is it and no one else will ever do, do you also chuckle?

I laugh my a$$ off!   ;D   My partner and I got together when we were 34 and 32, respectively.  #3 for both of us.  Together for almost 14 years and couldn't be happier.  We both wonder (and laugh about) what we were thinking with partners one and two in our twenties.   ???
