It was actually started as an academic project; the guy who founded it (with his husband) wrote his doctoral dissertation about our weekly potluck.
actually here those people bring Publix fried chicken, which nobody complains about though occasionally during busy times of year we end up with... eight boxes of Publix fried chicken
people cycle through a bunch of different specialties; we have a gourmet chef among our neighbors so he makes something different every time, but always incredible
we generally make something different every week, though when we host, i barbecue a pork shoulder
yeah casserole is really not something anyone brings, except us! strangely enough, because we’ll make a rice/broccoli/cheese casserole a lot of the time to make sure people who don’t eat meat get at least one hearty dish
that’s funny because some of our friends bring exactly that maybe once a month and it’s the best, absolute best, dip i have ever had. it’s incredible.
I attend five or six potluck dinners a month. Our friends/neighbors have had a weekly one every Wednesday night for 17 years, and so that’s our regular staple (between 15 and 30 or so of us every Weds) and then there’s a neighborhood porch party one Saturday a month.

The H-platform LeBaron GTS with its 150hp turbo engine had a solid 50% more under the hood than the base E30 or E28 of the day, & other than being FWD (which most consumers preferred anyway) was mostly comparable to either series of BMW.

must have been an editing error, as Ivan Stewart’s Super Off Road is completely missing from this list
how in the world is there enough room in that engine bay for twin-charging
I know I’ll see him in Philadelphia or in Hell, whichever comes first.
I cannot explain for the life of me why this awful band is suddenly everywhere in my life
That’s how these came, strangely enough.
Super Mario Bros. 3, in the living room of my friend’s house. I couldn’t believe I really did something so spectacular.
As her co-worker, I can assure you that Kelly Weill is very much real.
Given that Advanced-A hosts pretty much every player expected to reach the majors some day at some point, and that the Florida State League teams are playing in major-league Spring Training facilities, it kind of amazes me the Nats put up with such a situation as long as they did.
UPDATE: I will be overjoyed if I get to use these tickets.
The LeSabre of that same year had that same interior. It remains the most comfortable car I’ve ever owned, though every one I ever saw (and continue to see, as with that 3800 V6 many of them are still rolling) had a broken passenger side door armrest.
