We had a really bizarre connection. I was a teacher's helper or whatever as an 8th grader for her class. She became a cheerleader in high school, I was the wasted older guy yelling at the cheerleaders or whatever and we always sat together going to football games, etc. I always saw her at parties, we always flirted, nothing ever happened. I went to college in Oregon for 3 years. While I was home for the Summer of '09 we went out to dinner for my mom's birthday. She happens to be a waitress at the restaurant. She's my brother's age so I asked him if she was dating anybody. He said no but he had also lost her number. I didn't find this out until after we had left the restaurant and didn't want to embarrass her at work for running back in there to ask. Having missed the opportunity yet again and feeling kind of dejected I headed to the bar later that night. I ran into one of her coworkers and after basically professing my love for this girl told me that she was texting the girl right now. I said "ask her if I can have her number." Her coworker showed me the text that said "YES!!!!" We went out two nights later and have been together since. Eventually I found out she had always had a thing for me and was just too shy to speak up. Also that night at her restaurant was her first night on the job. So... 8 years of constantly getting away and we're finally dating.
    Great story. I think there's more than a few of us here that have had one get away like that... Where there's been at least multiple chances to put yourself/your feelings out there, but wuss'd out in fear of embarrassment and/or the fear of making whatever friendship or working relationship weird... And not getting another chance.

    Are you staying in California for extra days before/after the festival, and what are your plans if so?

    I do not have much time other than Coachella since I'm driving. My extra days will be spent making the drive to and from Texas.

    The best thing that David Robinson did for the Spurs in your opinion-
    1) His multiple all-star appearances... a complete stud Center (except when Olajuwon would school him everytime they met).
    2) Blowing out his knee, which ended his season, and made the Spurs really horrible for 1 season. Being really horrible for 1 season caused them to win the Tim Duncan lottery and the rest is history.

    So of these 2 things, what do you consider the better of the 2 overall?

    If the spurs ceased to exist for whatever reason, would you cheer for the mavs or the rockets(because in this scenario you'd have to cheer for a team from Texas)?

    If I had to choose between the two it would absolutely be the Rockets.

    The Mavs ooze disease.

    No... I'm not trying to open a can of worms... I've just always wondered this. For the subsequent dynasty indirectly created by Robinson's blown out knee, I'd say his blown out knee was the best thing he ever did for that franchise... as messed as that sounds. Is that actually a hot-button topic for Spurs fans?

    oh... looking at the Wiki, you're right. I knew he missed the season though, which enabled them to win the Tim Duncan lottery. Thanks for clarifying.

    I think the best thing The Admiral has done for The Spurs is not only stay loyal to his team but his city. He's opened up charter schools and treats San Antonio like he's lived there his entire life. It was either Sports Illustrated or ESPN Magazine that ranked the top franchises of all professional American sports combined and the Spurs were #9 partly due to loyalty and fan base. I think David Robinson had a lot to do with that initially.

    But let's not make this the NBA thread.

    Craziest place you've ever woken up after a wild night?
    My first novel, Darkhouse, has been published and is available here on Amazon. It has nothing to do with Coachella. Or vampires.

    One time I thought I fell asleep in San Antonio, TX and woke up in New Orleans. The sober driver for the excursion thought it would be fun to take us to Louisiana when he figured the majority of those intoxicated were blacked out by early afternoon. It was weird enough waking up in a hotel but in a different state was kind of wild. He still has not told any of us the events of that night but we didn't really mind we all stayed another two nights before going home.

    Favorite and least favorite former (or current) US Presidents? And, why?

    Do you think Alex Trebek looks like a douche without his mustache?

    - Nice question. Favorite president would have to be Bill Clinton for playing saxophone... made big strides in helping to reduce the national debt, posting eventual record surpluses when he undertook record deficits, lowest poverty rate since the '70s and creating 21 million jobs. He was also the first president to really tackle the mental health problems of the nation. The first Surgeon General's report on mental health was during his administration, I believe. I also met him. My least favorite president was Calvin Coolidge. Not only did he do absolutely nothing in succeeding Harding after his death but was reelected simply because there was pretty much nobody else to run. In his incumbent election (1924) I think the third party had the longest run until Ross Perot. He just seemed to be an extremely apathetic man presiding over an extremely apathetic time.

    - Trebek totally looks like a douche without the mustache.

    You need to look up what "national debt" means. Or "paid off". or maybe both, I can't tell.

    My favorite smell is the MidSummer's Night Yankee Candle. The worst thing I have ever smelled was a dead cow on my friend's ranch that had died with a horrible look on its face. My friend's dad thought that the face was funny looking so it was left to rot longer than necessary.

    Sorry I meant to say he had plans in place to help with the process. I'm aware of what the national debt is sorry I definitely worded that poorly.

    Edit: Changed to "helped reduce." I think during a three-year stretch it was close to 300billion paid? I can't find the stat. Granted my original term was "paying" and not "paid" to imply that it was an ongoing process.
