jonas, like Godzilla? :)

Could this question be any more vague? Are we talking getting home from the grocery store and realizing you've fogotten to buy milk...or something cataclysmic? Of course in my house, forgetting the milk might just cause a catastrophe.

Gojira is my hero, yes.

Not elitist, but the original Japanese name sounds so much cooler to shriek out when you knock over Lego buildings.

Not to say I've done that. Just a guy I know.

Pick it up, wash it off, and cook it until the center has reached 160 degrees

Wait, this question sounds familiar. Didn't they run this one a while ago?

I move to a new state and change my name. That's how I make the best of a bad situation.

(Oh, and I'll be on the road to Lawrence before long.)

Your "Bad situation" may be my idea of fun. It's all attitude!

Is this another question about roundabouts and traffic-calming devices?

Even though I am a woman, I do what most men do. I turn on my "ignore" switch. :-)

LOL Marion. That is why I stated "even though." I'm not the typical woman with the other switch. lol

If you're (still) a Republican, you just pretend it is all ok.
