National Kick a Random Thought Day

Postby Barry Jive » Tue May 25, 2010 11:57 pm

i saw Weezer at the Electric Factory in 2005 and some dude asked me two questions. 1.) would any of the people waiting in a line that went all the way down to Willow St have drugs and 2.) if i liked the Disco Biscuits

So I'm following Idaho primary election results, and I start clicking through different Idaho counties on Wikipedia. Come to this big county in the middle of the state, named Idaho County (real creative right?).

You would think Idaho County would be important or well populated, but you'd be wrong. At over 8500 square miles, the county is roughly the same size as the state of New Jersey. Idaho County has 15,345 residents, or roughly 2/3 of the random suburban township I grew up in.

The amount of space out there is just about impossible for my East Coast bias to comprehend.

It's true.

To put how sparsely populated Idaho County is in PA terms, it would be like if the entire state's population was 83k people, or about as many as live in the city of Reading.

That's timber and farming country. Takes a lotta land to feed people and supply all those BBQ decks and gazeboes for suburbia.

(yep, the only reason I replied was because I wanted to use the word "gazebo")

Where does one buy a good set of mid-priced luggage?

But I definitely would say to all the kids out there, 'Kids, it's a bad word. Don't say it. And I'm dead serious.' "

I would just go to a large department store. Invariably, one decent brand will be half-off or something ridiculous, that's your wheelhouse.

So photoscape is a pretty decent image editor, huh? combined with the Ordnance Survey free data, my race maps and documentation for volunteers is going to look a whole lot clearer and more accurate.

I'd try Sears or JCPenney. Sears has sales every weekend.I just got a JCP email for $15 off $75, if you want the coupon I can email it to you.

I think we had to get a set of luggage for our honeymoon (what was my mom thinking letting me get a PINK Suitcase and carry on in high school????). I just checked, their Samsonite. Got a super big one and the next smallest. Wheeled, soft-sided, and there's all kinds of expandable sections. They were good for a week-long trip.

We've rounded it out with two identical carry-ons. With these four bags, we can pack the family for a week's vacation, along with duffel bags for the kids' extraneous stuff like diapers and toys and books.

you sure do seem to have a lot of time on your hands to be on this forum? Do you have a job? Are you a shut-in?

Some of my friends in college were obsessed with the Disco Biscuits. I've spent a New Years Eve with a Biscuits show as the centerpiece and even went to something called Camp Bisco one year, which was a two day festival drug convention thing. I was never a really big fan of the music but it sounds pretty good on drugs and wherever that band is there's lots of good cheap drugs.

Another option might be a store like Marshalls.

Marshalls is nuts. I was in the one at Franklin Mills a week or two ago and it's just tons of crappy clothes and housewares in piles of various sizes. It was organized into aisles but that's about it.

Another possibility for luggage would be overstock.com or smartbargains.com.
