Now, we know how truly messed-up California has made you if you think
suburban Detroit is livable.  Boy, you need to get out of the city and get
some of that country air. :)

Were you still wearing the Ruby Slippers? or were those Ruby Teva's?

Yeah, but seriously, how often DO you go surfing in the morning and skiing
in the afternoon?  My aunt has lived in Orange county for years, she keeps
trying to get me to move there.  After I spent 4 hours driving from the
Grapevine to Irving once when driving to see her, she has no hope of
convincing me to move there.  I figure you can only go surfing OR skiing
because it'll take you the rest of the day to drive those 20 miles.

That was either sadness because UM wasn't there or sadness because the UM
football vacation is just starting.  :)
