  1. I've moved to Chicago, and I'll give you most of the jingle: Seven-seven-three, Two-oh-two... Beep-beep-beep-beep...
  2. I went back to NYC in January, and went to The Late Show with David Letterman. Dave's guests were Kathy Griffin and Simon Helberg from The Big Bang Theory. While waiting for my Dave-date to meet up with me, I saw and said hi to Pat Farmer, one of the Late Show stagehands, and asked if there'd be a new "Pat & Kenny Read Oprah Transcripts." Sadly, no, but was amazing to see the greatest face in Late Night - and also Kathy and my friend I hadn't seen for a couple years! 't s
  3. Craig Ferguson! I am crazy for Secretariat and the Puppets, and I feel like he is the most valuable host of all the late night shows! I really enjoy the other hosts, and their personalities define their shows, but Craig really dominates his show!
  4. I have a couple of friends that, when they hear something about Kings Island or Cedar Point, they contact me first. Even though I haven't spent hardly any time in the parks the past couple of years, I remain the go-to guy! Lol.
  5. I'm as big a fan of the game show announcers as I am the hosts. Not just 'Wheel' but also 'Joker's Wild,' 'Tic Tac Dough' and 'Pyramid' Charlie will be missed!
  6. No. Are you just going to wait til your local park opens to ride a coaster?
  7. I LOVE Jay Leno. I live for Headlines, as well as his other comedy sketched, great monologues, his friendly style, and his political/ideological neutrality on the show. But now in this tug of war, The Tonight Show hands down belongs to Conan O'Brien. Jay voluntarily gave up the show in 2004 (taking effect in 09) and while it was nice for Jay to get his prime time show, Jay should be talking to some other networks, maybe ABC or Fox? Conan's set and opening titles are beautiful and I'd hate to see all that go to waste. What Conan's doing now is only boosting his ratings, hopefully making NBC change their tune and side with him. And that Jay Leno will go peacefully right before the Winter Olympics next month.
  8. Be careful with that kind of stuff. I dated a guy who was working on a one year contract in DC with Sprint/MCI back in 2001-2002. We met and dated pretty seriously while he was in DC. He wanted me to move back to Kansas City with him and things progressed to the point where I was ready to do that. I moved away from everything I had going on in DC, family, friends, left a job only to receive the biggest kick in the nut sack ever. When we arrived to Kansas City, I met his wife. We dated for nine months, I move halfway across the country for the guy, and when we get to his place, his wife is standing in the front door. She knew about me. I didn't know about her. I moved back to DC less than a week later. WTF LOL... I have to say I am certain that my NYC man is gay, he has been that way since youth. He has said to me that I should play the field to make sure that a same-sex relationship is right for me so that I'm not the next bi-curious guy to break his heart. He's been in the city for almost 8 years and has been in his good job for 2 years. I doubt he's going elsewhere soon or the other way ever. And while I will add that he is a strong reason for me to move to NYC after I get my master's, I want to go there because of the creative, cosmopolitan culture that is there. I want to live somewhere I don't have to be tied to driving a car to get places. I want to spend good time with him as a visitor before deciding to stake roots in NYC. But for you, I feel sooo sorrey.
  9. Here's my situation, I went to NYC for the first time ever in October, and on my second and last full day there, I went to a gay sports bar after some sightseeing. After some beers, I find this cute guy who's pretty fine, and he is really digging me. We part ways after some time in the subway afterward but we exchange info to stay in touch. He wants me to come back in the future. For the next two months, we stay in touch but lightly, partly because of our distance and my constant school work. But soon after that we're hitting it up online with IM, video chat and over the phone. Things seemed excellent but a few weeks after that, he tells me that he's not really wanting a long-distance relationship but still is attracted to me, wants to talk, and would like me to come back. He thinks we may have something down the road... I'm effing nervous! And while I'm in central Ohio til early June, I want to move away after getting my master's. I had been wanting to move to a great city anyway, but now I feel a strong reason to relocate to NYC, and not just for career desires. He's a really smart and cute guy, and I admire the line of work he is in. But the issue is not only our distance now, but also the fact that I've only really been out for about a year, and he dated a guy who broke his heart. That other guy left him for a woman. Although I've only really been out for a relatively short period of time, I've had same-sex feelings since probably middle school and simply have had more desire to be around men. I have my eyes on him and with my school work, don't have the time motivation to try to find another man closer to me. (halp!)
  10. Team Leno! I need my Headlines!!! As much as I like Conan, I wasn't ready for Jay to leave late night, and waited patiently for Jay's new show to start. Jay and Conan both deserve late night shows, even if that means one of them going elsewhere like Fox of ABC. I honestly was watching Letterman more at 11:35 - and I have to say that Dave's followup show with Craig Ferguson out-does Jimmy Fallon at 12:35.
  11. I'm in the same boat, but trying to like the food less. Or eat less of the food i like. Same here! I don't need to be ultra thin or fit to be happy, but I could cut down on the flabbiness. I met a guy Saturday night and I can't wait to meet up again... too bad he's in NYC. I had a blast on my first trip there ever, but now I have great reason to go back as soon as I can.
  12. Rode this around the same time as these guys: Cincinnati Reds players Paul Janish and Jay Bruce
  13. The main problem is manpower at the coroner's office. Hamilton County is in a severe budget crisis. So, they've furloughed the coroner. http://www.wlwt.com/news/20343365/detail.html That's interesting - although the park is in Warren County, the office in the most populous county in the Cincinnati area is actually handling it. Does Warren not have a coroner?
  14. At the Reds vs. Giants game Tuesday night - large sized: Budweiser Select, then original Budweiser. Those beers on tap were closest to my seating area. Not bad.
  15. I'm definitely looking forward to Shaq vs. Pujols. Story about the taping of this episode
  16. Dear Cedar Fair and Kings Island: If you are going to have designated smoking areas, please advertise and inform them better to guests, and enforce your policies. Sincerely, 'CoastersNSich' P.S. Could you actually DEFINE what line jumping is on your signs? I try to call out many line jumpers at Diamondback, and they think I'm full of it. (I am not trying to change the topic, but if you're not going to enforce a policy, that probably means you condone certain actions.)
  17. Not the first time a pre-existing condition led to a death on a KI coaster. Happened on Top Gun (now Flight Deck) several years ago to a lady, who supposedly got way too excited, must've had a heart attack, and died. It wasn't shut down for long, maybe a day at very most.
  18. Not a TV, but a radio commercial. A ticket broker, Riverfront Choice Tickets (513-333-SEAT) is always playing "Are You Ready For This?" in their ads when mentioning the tickets they have for sporting events like Reds, Bengals, UC and OSU football... Is it 1995 already?!
  19. From the people who brought you "TAER IT DOWN!!!"....
  20. I can't believe all the crap that people have said on Kings Island's facebook page... "DIAMONDBACK SUCKS! MILENIUM FORCE IS BETTER!!" "Who Cares?!" "That woman who got 500 rides on Diamondback? She needs to get a job!"
  21. One of the issues of having a HDD in a portable device like an iPod, is that if it gets jostled around a lot, it gets messed up. (personal experience) HDDs may be cheaper than flash, but don't take a beating like flash would. Apple also makes the MacBook Air, which has an option of having a flash drive for storage (but no optical drive), unlike the MacBook Pro.
  22. The biggest "chain" I like is LaRosa's, they're all over Cincinnati, though they do have a few locations in the Dayton area. Smaller: Adriatico's, as someone previously mentioned. I just love the cheese and the spice of it. Though I'm generally a thin crust guy, Adriatico's is an exception.
  23. Not only am I hoping they don't jack up the price, but actually bring it down when the introduce the 3rd-gen touch. Hopefully the 32 GB one will be $350 or less. I'd like to replace both my 8GB 3rd-gen Nano, and my 4.5 year old monochrome 40 GB iPod, by getting a 32 GB touch. I want all my songs and more with me!
  24. Yes. Have you watched the Penn & Teller series Bull$#!t?
