I Love the movie, and miss the mayonnaise! Believe me it's NOT miracle whip or some of the bland ***** that passes for mayonnaise here.

It's not just mayo, btw. Get it with Curry, mayo and onions...

They don't have a drive through, they serve liquor and beer = non fast food. Maybe not your favorite, but that's kind of irrelevant :p

Nah, big burgers can be had everywhere. Red Robin probably the best known non fast food burger place, but any (every?) decent local (sports) bar has a few 1000 calorie monsters on the menu. We're...

A good cheeseburger without a beer. That's like a cheeseburger ... without cheese. Can't do it.

I don't think MTV, E!, retailers and the beauty industry will let us forget what 'perfect' is supposed to look like.

I hope to get 500 in. Bike 'should' be back from the shop tomorrow with a new set of wheels. Add to that the heat is finally coming down and wife getting into riding this should be a good month.

Anyone going to Hotter 'n Hell in Wichita falls?

I'm going for my first century at HHH next week. Anyone else there that wouldn't mind to have someone tag along? My wife is riding the 25 with a friend, too. We're driving up early morning from DFW.
