Dave

Ms. Thomas said...

I would like to amend my bring em back answer to a resounding Jen Miller! My God, how did I forget my JMil!! And, about Tina's brownie recipe... is she responsible for those peanut butter brownies that I devoured a pan full of on Friday night? If so, I need to get her autograph!

While sitting in the recliner part of Hot Tub #1 after sunset, you had a perfect, unobstructed view of a toilet in the lit but uncurtained cabin next door.

I'd rank it fourth...though it could move up the list after it comes out on video.

9. Best video moment ever? All the location work in Central City in "jD is 30".

10. If you could bring one person back to the ski trip, who would it be? Jennifer. I guarantee absolutely NO ONE would have been raging out of control if Jenny from the Block had been there this year.

sperbeck said...

1. How many ski trips have you been on? 4

2. In your opinion, was Ski Trip VII the "Best Ski Trip Ever!" ? I liked my second year, or number 4. It was the first year I knew everyone and really got to soak it all up.

3. Favorite thing(s) about this year's trip? Discovering Guitar Hero and watching the impact it has subsequently made in the ATL. The chance to do Dave and Marc's hair (good times). The fact that we didn't go anywhere.

4. Least favorite thing(s)? That Kristin and Will left early. The option that people had to pass out in the other cabins where *most* of us were to lazy to drag them back to the party/torture them. That everyone was interested in the Super bowl.

5. Opinions about Thumper. Good times!

6. Who did you hang with the most this year? I got some quality time with pretty much everyone... I float around when I'm drunk--can't risk missing anything! But Megan H., Phil, Dave, Marc and I were up latest together and I spent lots of time with the Megans and JD in the tub :)

7. Who did you hardly see at all? Neighbor Dave (poker obsession) and Jon C.

8.Where does this year's video rank with the others you've seen? They're all great for different reasons!

10. If you could bring one person back to the ski trip, who would it be? JMill and Amy Jo

11.What new activities should we plan for next year? I like the idea of a scavenger hunt, pool tourney for those that WANT to play, team pictionary or charades

12. Gatlinburg Idol: Bring it back or let it go? I say let it go but don't let the karaoke go altogether. Nothing better than drunken singing.

13. Pool Tourney: Bring it back or let it go? Keep for those who are interested but still have some organization

14.Should we think about changing the locale of the trip or is G Burg the perfect medium? Wherever the ski trip is, I'll be there. GBurg is fine with me.

15. Is there anyone you got to know a lot better this year on the trip? It was a treat to have Amber back and spend some time with her, Vic was awesome, and I got to see a different side of Matt :)

16. Will we ever leave the cabin again for outside activities? What does the outside world have that the cabin lacks?

17.Top three funnest people on the trip. Go! Kristin, Megan H., Brad

18. Will you be attending next year? I'll get this question out of the way for the long haul... I'll be there as long as ski trip exists

Philip Deskins said...

I'm bored Ill answer my questions

1. How many ski trips have you been on? 7/7

2. In your opinion, was Ski Trip VII the "Best Ski Trip Ever!"? No, it's second to number V


3. Favorite thing(s) about this year's trip?
We set a record for attendance

4. Least favorite thing(s)? Having to start out the trip raising my voice to some guy.


5. Opinions about Thumper? It's a blast. I can't believe some people don't like it.



6. Who did you hang with the most this year? I had three main cliques. I hung with the West V contingent, the Atlanta folks plus Marc and Megan, and my cornhole friends (Daves and Jon) and it seems Amber S was always there, too.

7. Who did you hardly see at all? Probably Brady and Griffin.

8.Where does this year's video rank with the others you've seen?
I think I'm beginning to understand what works in the videos. Keep it simple. Gatty Rewind was the best.But I kinda liked this one. I had two other things planned for G-Burg Live. For whatever reasons we couldn't do em. If they had made it in the video, this one would have been number one for sure.

9. Best video moment ever? I'm most proud of the Croc Hunters, but Dave and Lisa's "chew on that Divines!" thing got the biggest reaction.


10. If you could bring one person back to the ski trip, who would it be? KaMill

11.What new activities should we plan for next year? Duck, Duck ,Goose, Rhythm, and Steal the Bacon

12. Gatlinburg Idol: It's over, but karaoke in general can still be invited.

13. Pool Tourney: I'd rather do a cornhole tournament myself.

14.Should we think about changing the locale of the trip or is G Burg the perfect medium? I like this whole Pigeon Forge metro area thing.

15. Is there anyone you got to know a lot better this year on the trip? I guess Kristy and Matt since I had never met them before. But everyone else I know pretty well. Oh-- well maybe Vic and Dawn?


16. Will we ever leave the cabin again for outside activities? I kinda like stayin in anymore.


17.Top three funnest people on the trip. Go!
Dave ,Amber, Megan. which ones? I'm not telling!

18. Will you be attending next year? I'm skippin it

Sherman said...

1. How many ski trips have you been on? Four

2. In your opinion, was Ski Trip VII the "Best Ski Trip Ever!"? I'm partial to Ski Trip VI for no other reason than the fact that the Steelers won the Super Bowl.

3. Favorite thing(s) about this year's trip? We didn't run out of beer (thanks to those who made a beer run). The bacon at Cracker Barrel was pretty crisp. Weather was nice.

4. Least favorite thing(s)? The sun coming in through a bedroom window without blinds or curtains that was over an open area so I couldn't duck tape an extra sheet over it. Yet there was a window with blinds in the bathroom that looked out into the bedroom. Peyton Shitbag from Vomit Orange U. won the MVP of the Super Bowl. Too many Elton John songs on Phil's iPod.

5. Opinions about Thumper? I feel that JD is much too moderate in his dislike for that dumbdick game.

6. Who did you hang with the most this year? Probably Megan H since she was another late night person, plus she rode up and back on my lap....I mean in my passenger seat.

7. Who did you hardly see at all? Abe Lincoln

8.Where does this year's video rank with the others you've seen? I refuse to indulge Phil by actually paying attention to the videos.

9. Best video moment ever? When the two stewardesses came in and started taking off.....wait, are we only talking about ski trip videos?

10. If you could bring one person back to the ski trip, who would it be? That drunk chick who flashed people by the hot tub a couple of years ago. What was her name?

11.What new activities should we plan for next year? Wet T-shirt contest. As always, I offer my services as a judge.

12. Gatlinburg Idol: Bring it back or let it go? In the immortal words of Mark Collie, "Let Her Go". Should still have the karaoke machine so that Amy can sing the same Billy Joel song three times in a 30 minute span.

13. Pool Tourney: Bring it back or let it go? Let the pool players decide if they want an actual tournament. I shy away from playing pool after finding out how easily the cues break.

14.Should we think about changing the locale of the trip or is G Burg the perfect medium? Gatlinburg works. Where else can you find a 12 room cabin? And by next year, they should be finished building it.

15. Is there anyone you got to know a lot better this year on the trip? I think I learned too much about some people during the Newlywed Game.

16. Will we ever leave the cabin again for outside activities? Does walking back to another cabin every night count?

17.Top three funnest people on the trip. Go! I don't think "funnest" is really a word.

18. Will you be attending next year? I don't know. Eleven months isn't much time to plan ahead.

Philip Deskins said...

I'm not sure if "funnest" is a word, but I'm quite sure "DUCK tape" is not.

Sherman said...

You are correct, Phil. Duck tape is not a word. It's two words, and as a member of the Duck Tape Fan Club, I can safely say those two words go well together.

But I know what's really going on here. You're frustrated and need an outlet, and to be honest, I don't know why Sheray Thomas was in the game with 20 seconds either. So if you want to take your anger out on me, I'm fine with that, but I will ask you to stop making spurious allegations against Duck brand adhesive products, maker of the finest duct, masking and packaging tapes on the market.

Philip Deskins said...

I made the comment before the game. And oh yeah, NOW you capitilize Duck. Just like you meant to all along right?

Sherman said...

Sure, Phil, keep repressing the pain. You are now nitpicking about capitalization (I don't capitalize scotch tape either), but you still won't face the fact that you used the superlative form of an adjective that is really a noun in traditional English.

Actually, your obsession with this is quite humorous since the "funnest" comment was a simple throw away line that I used because I didn't really feel like answering the question. Also, you skipped dumbdick which is a completely made up word and would have suited your purposes much better.
