Thread: Earth Hour anyone?

  1. #1

    Default Earth Hour anyone?

    I went out to dinner (Chicago Joe's, Bluestater) and totally forgot. I was just reminded of it when I went to CNN. I think Chicago Joe's forgot too - all the big screens were in force for the basketball game.

    I asked my son if he did it. He said the parents at his friend's house turned them out. I asked what they did for that hour and he said "We just played video games."

    If you had turned your car lights out I am sure you would have had a car come up behind you to help out. Probably a car with multiple lights..... some of them flashing in pretty colors.

    You were in my neighborhood! I was at a friend's house watching basketball, and the Chinese food arrived right around 8, and then we were eating and watching the game, and we just plain forgot. I guess that the lights were off at my apartment, since I wasn't there!

    If by transfixed, you mean making fun of Roy Williams mercilessly, then yes. No, I actually want the Heels to win it-definitely more than those ridiculous chickenhawks!

    I gotta say, Hansbrough is the Brent Metcalf of college basketball. That kid is fun to watch on both ends of the floor. I'll certainly be rooting for the heels and that kid to win it all.

    I don't ever remember reading anything about Earth Hour. That's sad since I'm a member of Sierra Club. I was watching basketball with my future father-in-law.

    That's great - can I use that for a new sig??

    It is a good analogy. He's full-force, balls to the wall, to use Big's favorite expression.
