it's been so long since i last wrote one of my usual long-winded posts that i have no idea what topic to tackle. my current preoccupation is off-limits, my vacation notes, while long overdue, are best saved for a weekend, when i have hours to sit down and do them justice, and i'm too out of the loop on current events to hold a meaningful discussion....though i'm sure i could write a compelling piece on the dangers of eating too many bean burritos at once.

or maybe not. (it seemed like a good idea at the time, though.)

What is it with you women? None of you have ever had beards.

Kal said...

Hey, Welcome back!

So they say, Digi. So they say.

Duff, you should really try singing Karaoke. It is the most embarassing thing ever. Choose your song well and people will laugh at it rather than you(at least I hope they were laughing at the songs I chose).

I don't think it's possible to cry so hard you laugh instead.
That's like being so smart you're stupid again.

Btw, could you possibly change my link from "this is way overdue" to "Kunstemaecker" by any chance? Lovely, thanks a lot!

Glad your day was better... and I hope today is even better!

I never used fake ID for the same reason you didn't. No one would have believed me. In fact I STILL often get IDed and the person IDing me is SHOCKED when they see the year born.
