Making Dhue with the Bar Scene

For all the ladies out there, check out Laurie's latest entry on the At Large Blog. It's a virtual treasure trove of advice and observations titled, "Bar Meeting Tips." Here a sample;

Hi ladies... here's the scenario: It's 8 p.m. on a Thursday night. You dress to kill in a LBD (little black dress) and knee-high boots.

You go to your favorite bar, or a trendy one you've been dying to try. You bring along a friend (safety in numbers, moral support, don't want to look like a desperate barfly). You strike up conversation with an adorable guy who seems to hang on your every word. Or you get stuck talking to a loser who must own stock in Patron, he's doing so many tequila shots.

In both instances, you go home alone. Maybe you wonder how the great flirts of this world survive the potentially brutal bar scene... How they get a man's attention, how they keep it, how they go home with a phone number- or the hot guy himself.
Somehow I don't think Laurie ever has a problem getting a man's attention.

Polls: Part 2

In a related note, I'm sure Laurie was pleased with at least one recent poll. Her alma mater Tarheels were ranked 2nd in the preseason AP hoops poll released last week.

Amazingly enough I stumbled upon this photo of Laurie as a coed back in the Spring of '89 courtesy of one of Dhue's friends at xtcian. Ah, the 1980's, what a magical time.

"livin' the Carolina high life with Debi Teitelbaum, Laurie Dhue and Tom Dunphy, spring '89"

For any hoops fans out there '88-'89 was a decent year for the Heels, those were the days of King Rice, Jeff Lebo, J.R. Reid, Rick Fox and Hubert Davis.

I Demand a Recount!

In the spirit of the recent midterm elections I have come across a few polls that demand immediate attention. Laurie is amazed that she isn't wiping the floor with the other candidates.

This is the problem with democracy, the masses are too ignorant to make informed decisions. How else would Laurie be trailing in polls compared to her piers (I'm being generous) at Fox News.

So get on over to these polls and set the record straight. The first travesty at FinePoll, has Laurie with only 6.1% of the vote.

The second poll at Girls of Fox News is only slightly more acceptable with Dhue pulling in 11% of the vote. While a noble site in it's mission, we will not stand for this kind of neglect.
