Bummer. I thought it was a great read. Would be curious to hear any feedback that RW gave. I know the last story I got rejected, he provided some feedback. Hope the story finds a home.

When I saw this Instagram, I was all like "cool find" Hope one of those bottles got cracked soon after you found them. Ice, tonic and limes and you are all set. You already knew my love of gin. Marie above says it tastes like cold medicine. I've heard other non-gin fans say turpentine. Botanicals.

I know many of us take things that we post on Twitter and turn it into a blog post. I need to get back to doing that, but trying out this posting on the blog instead of tweeting it. Perhaps something that needs to expand past 140 characters.

I've seen more chocolate special edition Oreos than golden ones. I really wanted to try the Root Beer Float ones, but couldn't find them here in Salt Lake. I'm still finding the Cookie Dough Oreos (not stale either.. expiration dates into 2015). I have a package of these Caramel Apple Oreos sitting in my cupboard (had to finish my Banana Twinkies review). Review to come closer to Halloween.

I would take volleyball over soccer. I happen to like volleyball, so there's that bias right there.

This was a good post to bump your Macro Monday to Sunday. Happy anniversary you two.

Blazes burn and faces get burned. Hmmm. I like your interpretation of the song's lyrics (and the meaning of the song, it fits)

This week's is some type of soup. Or Pho. I'm going with Pho.

Of course I'm in. I'm even up for blogging each day I'm gone next month (which is a rare thing for me to blog when I am traveling). I am setting my reminder to check the NaBloPoMo site for when the November sign up shows up.

I have high hopes for Ello. I also want a mobile app. I've been able to get the site on my iPhone and iPad (it looks really nice on the bigger screen). And I'm with you. Let's see if they can keep those manifesto promises.

Scott explained this process very well. I had similar questions with my bank recently, as they changed some of the process of how they manage debits and credits (fortunately, they process all credits before debits, expect for automatic payments - ACH - then those get processed before any credits, except for cash deposits). When I make my cell phone bill, it's processed by AT&T as I am part of their Autopay. Sometimes, it can take 3 days for it to show up on my account, even though when they process the payment, they verify funds by running as credit, yet it doesn't deduct the amount from my balance. It's confusing, but Scott's explanation above makes sense.

I'm reading the book now (up to Chapter 5 so far) and my daughter, who has read the book and seen the movie, has warned me about it getting teary towards the end. It means you are connected to the story when you get weepy. At least that's my opinion.

The things you learn from other people's blogs, who share similar movie tastes. Thanks for the tidbit and a nice mention of one of the first John Cusack movies (I WANT MY 2 DOLLARS!) Excited about this 3rd Bill & Ted's. I enjoyed the first one (including Jane Wiedlin's stint as Joan of Arc), often doing the air guitar with many people back in the day when something great would happen.

Norman took him out like a stormtroopin' boss. I've not had the annoying experience with Goofy. Pluto is my favorite of all the main Disney characters.

Since I lost mine in Vegas back at the end of July, I really do miss my Fitbit One. I am using my iPhone 5s with the app, but my phone doesn't go as many places as my One did. So I miss counting a lot of the steps I still take.

Congrats on this lateral move. And the future opportunities it will bring. Is there any video involved here, too? Curious video guy question.

I seem to remember the review you wrote, but not sure where it was posted. Perhaps your Tumblr account? I try to have fun with Siri here and there. I might have to try the above here soon.

Wow. What an awesome tribute to Robin. Still so shocked that he is gone. The brilliance will never create new works of comedy. And that makes this fan sad.

Curious to see the video footage. Great photos and that's cool they have such a place with water activities. Admitting to be jealous of the Hot Wheels Nathan got.

Hey, a sanitized swear word... a replacement. Nothing wrong with that. That crying face is something of epic proportions. It's cartoons that can't be watched, after all.

It's like collecting plates from the different dealers. There certainly should be an app for that, collecting virtual badges.
