Happy New Year, all! Hopefully 2009 goes better than 2008 on any level you want it to, but for all our sakes, let's apply this first and foremost to the Seahawks and Mariners.
Matthew just posted an OTFPOTD Guide which I suggest everyone read and familiarize themselves with. It's my opinion that the OFFTOP has been a very good influence for LL overall, though it's certainly come time to reign it in a little bit. Just remember what our old threads used to look like - lots of zany off-topic banter, but no personal 1-1 communication.
If you need to communicate 1-1 with another poster, many people post their e-mails on their profile pages; also, there's a LL Facebook group where many of us are friends and can use FB chat and messages for non-LL appropriate discussion.
I usually stay out of the music discussions, but I discovered the band Shiny Toy Guns over break thanks to my brother, and I thought I'd pass it along
In case any of you are wondering why the hell I'm posting the OTFPOTD at 4:30 AM PST, my flight out of Seattle got delayed three hours on the tarmac after already being delayed an hour pre-flight. They kept telling us "de-ice. fifteen minutes!" every ten minutes for three hours, so when I finally got to San Diego, I decided not to bother driving the half an hour home and just to stay at work and leave really early. Plus this way, I get to watch the Texas-Ohio State game!
Who else has travel horror stories that end up with them working ungodly hours, or travel horror stories, or working ungodly hours stories?
