What? The big game in '82?

Hey, hubby was the star of the big game in '82.  He likes to reenact it every now and then.  I play nose tackle, and he's the tight end!   :-*

Way too much information. And that's not his nose you're tackling.

Sorry, Lane.  I need to learn to keep my private life private... otherwise, someone will steal the info and use it in their personal statement.  

I already did. Did you know I was a meteorologist in the Air Force?

Why you sonofa... breathe, twarga, breathe.... it's only Lane.  It's only Lane.  Good afternoon, Lane.

Col Honey belongs to ME!  ME!  You're on a slippery slope here, Lane.  How's tricks?  I'm doing well now that I kicked the cancer and devote my life to helping kids with cancer.  It's very rewarding.

They weren't impressed with my weather experience, either, so don't feel bad.

Well, actually, I guess the cancer angle worked with the Catholics, 'cause it surely wasn't my stellar numbers that got me in there...

just a reminder to this cycle's applicants. be careful about ps review. protect your work product and be sure that you can prove that you are the original author.

Wow, so the adcomm actually remembered your PS and recognized it when they saw it regurgitated by a plagarist? That's impressive.  Did that person get in anywhere?
