That's quite true, do they come in black?

OMG - so much to do, so little time. Actually not. The regional burn helped me identify things I forgot, new ideas for things to take, and reminded me again that I take WAY too much stuff.

TPBM is finally fed up with cell phone service and is going back to a hard wire land line.

I'm afraid not, in fact, other than clear the way permission-wise and buying a light at a yard sale I haven't done a damn thing. Just too busy. But I hope to make some headway this weekend.

TPBM knows where the term "third world country" is derived from.

The major difference between a thing that might go wrong and a thing that cannot possibly go wrong is that when a thing that cannot possibly go wrong goes wrong it usually turns out to be impossible to get at or repair.

Well, if you mean the raw fish stuff that most people think is "sushi", then you are correct (that's also actually "sashimi"). I love shitake-maki rolls, and inari, and futomaki...

I probably am, just not on the playa (where I eat like some sort of barnyard goat).

No. I would make Tom a "Dark Side of the Force". A large, layered shot in a mini Coca-Cola glass invented by my college boyfriend and his even more drunk friend over the course of several experimental hours: Put one shot of 151 on the bottom of the glass. Layer over it a shot of "Butterschnapps". Then fill the rest of the mini glass (another oz or two) with Barq's Root beer. Do not shake or stir. Drink it in one sustained effort.

"It starts out pleasant and sweet," they slurred, "and then the dark hand of Vader reaches out and chokes you."

(If you float 1/2 an oz. of Scotch on top, it's an Emperor Palpatine.)

The person below me is appalled.

Yep. Lined, bright yellow 3" x 3" from a dispenser, and some smaller ones in lavender and pale blue.

The person below me has an unusually good memory and rarely writes anything down.
