I had never heard of Stanislav Petrov before I saw this link posted elsewhere on the 'net. Good to know such beings exist, isn't it?

Elmo is so much better than Sarah Brightman.

My suggestion: if companies and their managers and execs need our "bailout" dollars to stay afloat, then we should insist that every company and every manager and exec be treated to a thorough IRS audit.

Do not--I repeat--do NOT buy or imbibe Sam Adams' Cherry Wheat beer. Unless you just luuuuuv the taste of cough syrup.

Wrong thread for you then!

I came here to post something, but got sidetracked by all the threads and comments and no longer recall what it was I wanted to say.

That's probably a good thing.

Hi Sweetwater
Are you still in Japan? Or are you home now?
How is/was it?

I've just bought three different lunches.
Idiot.

All are healthy, all were discounted. But pure greed had me thinking, Oh I'll have that! Oh, I'll have that! Oh, that will go with that!

So I'll have to have one for tea tonight before I leave - which might be late, so I can get some Cellar time, depends how tired I am - and come in tomorrow for another one.

And no, none of it could be frozen. But it is all nom nom nom worthy.

I wish I was still there. Had a great send-off the day we left: a 4.9 - 5.1 earthquake while we were still in our 14th floor hotel room. Rock'n'roll! I'll be reposting some stories to MySpace and can PM you the link when I get it done, if you wish. But yeah, I loved it and would move there right now if not for our pets here and the lack of good pizza there.
