Miscellaneous Items

Crack cocaine stinks to high heaven. Just a whiff is enough to make me nauseous. How the crap do people live like that?

Eight days in to the Atkins pain-and-suffering induction, I'm down 8#. Amazingly, I still have 16.6% body fat. I seriously don't know where all the fat goes... Is my head looking smaller?

Gorilla glue is the worst glue on the planet. Right now my hands look like they've got leprosy from that unworkable crap. It flows almost like water and then, as it dries, it expainds 2-3 times in volume, which generally messes up whatever your gluing. And it refuses to come off. Well, I guess that's a good thing about it, except it's such a mess.

Extras is hilarious. Props to Neuf for turning us on to that! Too bad they aren't making any more.

Tomorrow is our 14th anniversary! I'm looking forward to a day of vacation as we set off to Fulton, Mo to hang out a nice B&B and generally linger about, doing nothing. Tomorrow night we'll be going to the Stonehill Winery restaurant and I'll will break the Atkins diet with sauerbraten, red cabbage and potato pancakes. I'll break it like a Los Angelean breaks a plate glass window with a brick during a riot... I'll break it all to hell!

Congrats on the anniversary! Have some riesling or something...given the very Germanic roots of rural Missouri, Mosel/Rhine style German whites are the best style we do, at least in my mind.

Bear in mind, I know >nothing about wine, but not much >nothing.

Also, residents of Los Angeles are not called "Los Angelans". The correct term is "Mexicans".

I am worried about the random comments about crack cocaine and gorilla glue. What have you gotten yourself into? What should we really be attributing your weight loss too?

Nuefonzola is almost but not quite entirely unlike a wine expert.

Have a great anniversary!

Neuf- Thanks for setting me straight. I forgot all about La Reconquista.

Pilgrim - The crack aroma is merely from incidental contact: holding hands and praying with a crack head. The glue did smell but it did not occur to me to sniff it. I just drink plain ol' alcohol in various fine brews, wines and drinks.
