Somewhere in my house I have the VHS tape of that given to me by a "friend".

Whenever I watch films like this all I can think of is their MST3K possibilities. My wife, OTOH, actually enjoys them if they are really campy. Needless to say we both enjoy Ed Wood movies for very different reasons.

I wouldn't either, but when someone else is paying $5 for a stupid cookie I'm not arguing.

Good, don't start. It's like a coke habit. Before you know it, you're screaming at an ATM machine at 3AM because the screen keeps blinking "not enough available funds".

Pizzas are ordered by the pound, and this is a lil' 2-pounder:

I left a 2 pounder in the head not too long ago. I called it 'Chipotle'.

There have been almost no overpriced food items that I've found either worth the wait or the expense. Let me guess: there's loads of people queueing up to get in the place?

that's not pizza, that's a glutenous mound of **** with cheese and tomato sauce poured on top of it.

Our neighbour is out of town, coming back tonight. We've been looking after their dog and 3 cats. One of the cats died today. Oops.

as I am currently cat sitting for my neighbor, and have a dog of my own - I can really feel for you/them/it.

Hope it goes okay

Does that freak you guys out at all?

Just wondering. I'll take my answer off the air.
Highway 39?



Sometimes highway 2 gets this way, too.

I'm not even sure why he is even riding for our club but I believe they are planning on having him soon on our Elite team so I dont think he will jump to another team unless you guys can provide more free goodies which I doubt. Unless your team is providing free high end bikes.

Had that happen over Thanksgiving one year with a neighbors black lab. Spent a long lonely night with a pick axe and a shovel burying the dog for them.

Ebay is strange.

I listed a Deda stem on Sunday night with a starting bid of $0.99 and a BIN of $20. Someone bid the 0.99, which wiped out the BIN option. The auction ends tomorrow and it currently sits at $23.50.

Luckily for me no one took the BIN.

We got hold of them on the phone and asked what we should do with her. The cat is now in their basement freezer.
