I am always happy to see the advent pages! I am home from work today because my car would not start.......... new starter is being put in now. I am not finished with shopping, but we are doing pretty good. Nice weather and no snow yet, but that is ok with me. Did some shopping yesterday with Sam and Anna, had a nice lunch out and we all stopped in and surprised Zach at his work :)
P.S.: If you're wondering what they will be snacking on at the White House on election night, then click here -- complete menu, plus recipes!
This morning I went to a Husker website, where fans text in comments as the game is going on. Found some hilarious comments, which I will post below. The first three are from during the game, all the rest are from just after the game ended. Enjoy:
I hate football.
These guys are going to kill me this year
Can you remember a Cornhusker team with so many heartstopping comebacks? I can't. Wow. Just wow.
I can't take anymore like this. No. None. I mean, I'll take the Win, but dang. I'm just damn glad we won, but this is hell on my blood pressure...
Wonder if UNL will pay for my meds?
With that catch...all across the state, text messages are telling medical staff and cardiac professionals to report to triage centers and expect visitors
Thank God Pelini didn't do what i wanted.
oh, by the way, I was wrong back then about the game being over 3 minutes ago...
I was screaming at the TV at one point and then calmed down and came to the realization that we lost the game.................... then we got the ball back with 1:50 something left and started driving and found myself holding my head and pacing back-and-forth. Good god I love this team, but STOP IT!
In all my 25+ years of being a Husker fan I have never seen or read about a Nebraska team like this one. To come back like they have in heart stopping fashion in so many important games is really remarkable. It might give us all grey hairs a little quicker, but we'll take a win any way we can get it.
The one thing every Husker fan must admit now is that Taylor Martinez and this Nebraska team DO NOT QUIT
Just remember that NU will not make it easy for us. They will get behind, have turnovers and penalties and give us strokes ... then win.
How many QBs rush for 200 yards and throw 3 interceptions in the same game? This is why we have so many heart attacks.
Not meaning to get political here, but I honestly said "Thank gawd for Obamacare" after the game -- my heart will never be the same after 2012
Well I just called and left a message at my doctors office to see if he can up my blood pressure medicine, man these finger nail biter games are going to kill me, god I love these types of games.
I confess...after the pick six by MSU for a TD I had to excuse myself from the game. I was way too amped up. Just couldn't watch. I'm glad I came back to check back in and finish it out. I think I have aged at least 10 years this season.
If this keeps up i'm gonna need to start watching games in the ER
Someone asked, "Are we a sleeping giant?" Reply: We only sleep during the first three quarters.
I think we should give every team we play a 2-touchdown lead at the beginning of the game. This way our team plays the whole game like it does in the 4th quarter.
Dear God this team is going to be the death of me. I am sorry for the negativity I take it all back haha
Damn it. My DVR cut off the last three minutes. What did I miss?
Thanks for the movie tips. Haven't heard of either one. Bill Murray as FDR?? That's a casting decision I would never have predicted! --Gary
Whatís the explanation for the fact that white American Evangelicals made the allegedly philandering lying ignorant braggart lapsed Roman Catholic Dinesh D'Souza their anti-Obama hero, embrace a pro-choice Mormon bishop who promoted abortion and Planned Parenthood in MA, are working to elect a job-destroying tax-avoiding lying flip-flopping-tell-anyone-anything-they-want-to-hear Swiss bank account collecting draft dodger running with a disciple of the God-hating, Jesus-mocking hater-of-the-poor Ayn Rand, for their presidential candidate and look the other way as a crazed ultra-Zionist many Israeli Jews fear billionaire casino owner who is being investigated for allegedly making billions off the dirtiest Chinese gambling Communist Party-controlled outfit in the world funds the enterprise, at the very same time as Franklin Graham sold his ailing father Billyís soul and denied core evangelical theology by taking Mormonism off the Billy Graham organizationís list of cults in order to help the Mormon pagan-ritual-performing, Trinity-denying, casino-money-grubbing billionaire-coddling, earth-destroying global-warming denying Mormon bishop win respectability for his dead-Jews-baptizing-polygamy-rooted-reality-denying-interplanetary Masonic lodge-embracing faith in an election against an exemplary modest faithful husband good father compassionate smart black evangelical Christian President whose major accomplishments include saving the economy, ending a war, killing our greatest enemy, giving health care to children and the poor and the "least of these" and who has tried to reduce the number of abortions by helping women escape poverty in a reenactment of the lesson of the parable of the Good Samaritan?Good question!
