    Looking forward to some well worded nail-biting action, with correct grammar and spelling and wittily articulated blog entries.
    Oh, and I don't care if you're oxygen deprived or not, this $hit better be good for a long high or I'm gonna be pissed.

    Psyco's comment is hysterical for us old folk. If my memory serves, this was from an old Folger's coffee commercial where she says "rich mountain grown, the best kind.".

    LOL

    I'm not going to blame O2 deprivation. I'm going to blame it on aham's iPhone. And he's going to blame it on the 3G network.

    Excuses excuses. I got a saddle bag full of them.

    Or we could just photoshop ourselves on there and not even worry about having to take a camera.

    With a thick (probably fake) German accent, It was "aaahhhhh, mountain grown. That's the richest kind". I have a good brain for totally useless information. But do I remember to bring a helmet for a 100 mile ride? (I believe it was the Udder) Naaaah.
    Suzy Creamcheese, what's got into you?
