    1. In a mate I like a woman to be shorter than 5'9, I'm 6'1.

    2. I won a 27" TV, carpet cleaner, $400 & a trip to New Orleans as well as a few other things. A good prize is any prize IMO.

    3. Yes, but I'm not sure if they've ever been here.

    4. Harden My Heart by Quarterflash is one I remember because it was so cheaply made.

    5. NBA2K12, yard work, Cowboys and not much else.

    It's how I judge myself against other golfers :)


    Won a big NCAA basketball tourney pool once that netted me $2,000...back when I was 16 years old. I've won other pools, but smaller ones. One a contest picking the # of jelly beans (I was off by like 7).

    Good Prize? Probably in the $500+ area.

    No.


    Run DMC's Tricky, Frankie Goes to Hollywood 'Relax', Cindy Lauper's Girls Just Wanna Have Fun with Cpt. Lou Albano.

    Funny thing is, despite living in NY, I didn't actually get MTV on my cable system until I was 20 years old. The cable system wouldn't allow it, it only happened to about 3,000 people.


    Going up to my parents and playing golf. Then heading back home on Sunday and playing golf again. Watching the Cowboys play the Pats, that's about it.

    1. Unimportant.

    2. I won an X-Box a long time ago at a Columbus Riverdragons d-league basketball game. When they said "X-Box" they literally meant X-Box. That's all it was - no controllers, no cables, just an X-Box.

    3. Yes, absolutely.

    4. Waterfalls by TLC

    5. Emissions inspection, renewing vehicle registration, and a collision estimate. Dang DC drivers :mad:

    1. How important is a persons height to you?

    It's not. Just about everyone is taller than I am and I'm used to it.

    2. Have you ever won a contest, sweepstakes, or raffle? In your opinion, what constitutes a good prize?

    Nothing significant. Any money over $50 would be nice.

    3. Do you believe in extraterrestrials or life on other planets?

    Yep.

    4. Remember when MTV only played music videos? What were the first videos you remember seeing on MTV?


    I remember watching Friday Night Videos, which might have been prior to having MTV at our house. I think I remember watching Walk This Way (Aerosmith w/Run DMC) on MTV though.

    5. What's on deck for this weekend?

    Taking one kitten to the adoption stand. Probably a bunch of other things to completely fill my days. Some weekends it's almost a relief to be back at work.

    1. In a mate? Very. I'm 5'8 and my boyfriends have to pass the heel test.

    2. Like Duane, any prize is a good prize. Haven't won many, so I'll appreciate whatever I get.

    3. Hadn't thought much about it. But there probably some.

    4. Yo MTV Raps!

    5. Chores and my Dad's coming to town. Yippee!!

    1. height isn't important to me. I'm about average at 5'11".

    2. Never won a contest. I think all expenses paid vacations would be nice.

    3. Given how big our universe is I'd say yes. But I don't think they spend the time and energy to come find us.

    4. I'm too young to remember anything about MTV lol.

    5. Got an interview with Baylor med in an hour then just getting back to Austin for the horns game and watching Dallas new England!

    1. Not at all.

    2. I won a gas grill in a school raffle once. I already owned a nice Weber grill, so I sold it real cheap to a neighbor.

    3. Absolutely! Not necessarily little green men, but life.

    4. Van Halen-Jump, Big Country-In a big country, Men At Work-Who can it be now, and Duran Duran-Hungry like a wolf are some of the earliest I remember.

    5. Youth soccer, youth football, yard work, and Cowboys throwing down on the Patsies!

    1) In a dark alley I prefer them about 2'-6". In a girl....not really.

    2) Won rain gear about 15 years ago. Two weekends ago the family went to the grand opening of Buffalo Wild Wings to watch the game. Coors was there and sponsoring some things. I won a set of those bean bag toss thingy's with the NFL logo and they have football field painted bases. Very nice kit. Anyways......the sponsor for Coors, a hottie dressed in a black mini, came over and was 'Blah, blah, blahing me, I was trying to watch the game, and she handed me a ticket. Next thing ya know, I'm luggin' out this kick-*** bean bag toss thingy. Before she gave me the prize I told her I wasn't even listening to her. She just laughed. Cool.

    3) Yes. Got to be something in infinite, right?

    4) Cult of Personality, Winger, Aldo Nova, The Cars...etc.

    5) Son's last football game. I'm gonna be jonesing next week. I LOVE to watch my boy play. He's got a motor, that kid. Never comes off the field except when coach calls him out for a play for info. He's got at least 1 sack per game....He's a DT this year. Offense, hes a RT.

    Hop on the 'ol TW200 and hit up some garage sales with my daughter. Trip up to Estes for one last round of go-carts and mini golf. Fish the Big T on the way up. No yard work.......fiinished, 'til the leaves fall off.


    Apologies for the long-windedness.............

    1. How important is a persons height to you? Not very.

    2. Have you ever won a contest, sweepstakes, or raffle? In your opinion, what constitutes a good prize? Just little things like radio giveaways.

    3. Do you believe in extraterrestrials or life on other planets? No

    4. Remember when MTV only played music videos? What were the first videos you remember seeing on MTV? I watched MTV all the time when it was new. Any video you can think of I've probably seen it at least 100 times.

    5. What's on deck for this weekend? Work/chores/football

    1. In a female, height is very important to me. I don't like TALL girls. To me, that is equally as gross as fat.

    2. I won a go-cart in a drawing at Petsmart once. I guess putting my name in the drawing 10 TIMES helped. Haha.

    3. Yes. How anyone can claim there is no chance of there being life on other planets is just asenine. The human mind can't even really comprehend how much space is out there. We know NOTHING, really.

    4. I remember, but I grew up without cable. Michael Jackson?

    5. Have to attend a HS football game tonight. Tomorrow, I don't know yet. Sunday...FOOTBALL.

    All these weeks and no one said a word.

    The first one I don't mention it - BAM!

    I'm not going to edit my post but now I may stop at the store after work. When I get home everyone gets a glass and it's "got chololate milk?" faces all around the table!

    :laugh2:
