Undoing the existing marriages feels petty and mean to me.

My whole browser (internet explorer until I get my laptop back) appears to have just had a bit of a hiccup. I had to restart the whole machine.

Oh, and try roasted parsnips. And roasted potatos. And yorkshire puds if at all possible. See if somebody will have you over for Sunday dinner, or something.

actually, it's probably better to be bitten by a giant spider than the gianst reptiles that live in Florida. (I've actually been to Fort Lauderdale, so I'm not completely terrified of your state).

England has really good food involving sugar. Other stuff, not so much (although it's kind of comfort foodish, so I like it when I'm in the mood for it.) Actually, cottage pie (or shepherd's pie if you prefer lamb) is really good. Stews. Potato items. Pasties (often pronounced without the long 'A'). Fish and Chips of course. Plus those Asian kabob places with the rotating meat thing. Various meat pies. It's 'meat and two veg' eating. Although I have to admit British food has improved loads over the last ten years or so.

Hmm. I miss England. If you idn't live about the same distance from me as you do from London I'd ask you to get me shortbread. Yumm. plus, if you havet he chance, you should try Asda's ice cream (the kind in the cartons). It's got a different texture than American, but it's really good. Kind of like softserve. (You can get it from Tesco too).

If those things really live there...I am never moving to Florida. EEEWWW!!!

But if she was an instructor trying to get students, she probably wouldn't have screamed "cheeseburger head" at you from across the room...at least, I don't think she would have...

Wow on Blizzard Queen...maybe she has an eating disorder or something that makes her constantly stress about food? Plus absolutely zero social skills?

We totally need to introduce him to it. What should we start with? I have Rhapsody in Blue and various classical/late baroque strings running around in my head right now. Vivaldi maybe? Four Seasons is so accessible...

OK, weirdly it only seems to do this on my laptop. It's still annoying, though.

There's a friend suggestion thing? Where?

Oh, and Randy, this whole hidden comments thing is kind of annoying/weird. Just saying. 'Cause you know how whiny...er particular about these things I am.

Brady, if you're willing to be Randy's Facebook friend, will you be my facebook friend? Ellie :-)

"Facebook... oh well. Who knows why they bailed. I don't even know who they actually were ... just that the count dropped." Wow...that kind of sounds really...callous? I actually think that the counts might not be exact, because I've noticed that occasionally my numbers adjust, and I can' think for the life of me who dropped or added...and I've got few enough friends that I should be able to remember.

Well, their body mass is smaller than that of girls who are over 5'7" so the hairspray fumes affect them more. That totally kills brain cells and shaves off IQ points, and before you know it you have a herd of short-ish girls running in terror when they hear strange sounds. (yes, it's 1 am here, and I'm only 5'5", for the record [although I don't use hairspray (*_-) ])

I'm surprised the CNN guy noticed the 'mostly tepid response.'

I find this current obsession with Conservative media bizarre as well. I think it's much broader than just the White House witness the revival of the fairness doctrine and the absolute hatred of "the faux news channel." Conservatives do this too, complaining about the MSM, for example. But it seems (from my admittedly biased vantage point) that the left is much more paranoid about media control than the right is. Perhaps this is partially because they are not actually ever exposed to conservative media or ideas, and so see them as a bigger mystery and threat? The 'founding father' comment seems quite apt, as well. I was just reading an article reporting that President Obama was disappointed that the DC area schools give snow days (Chicago, apparently, hasn't had a snow day since 1999) and don't force the children to go to recess outside in freezing weather. Honestly, I don't see why Obama should lecture the school district about that, or why an article about Obama's views on snow days should make the front page of msn.com. Except that perhaps he and the fawning MSM (^_-) have mistaken him for the new Benjamin Franklin. We should perhaps be expecting Obama to take over editorship of Poor Richard's Almanac in his spare time.

Fixed it :) I'll get a picture up asap.

I'm glad this uses open-id, but I need to figure out how to teach it my name. :-/ This is Ellie. I really admire your restraint, as far as not pointing lots of fingers. Are you speaking during the vast right wing conspiracy webinar this year? Last year was just so blah. We need somebody who's not afraid of some color to spice things up. ;-)
