I love the sadtrombone posted earlier. It's now in my favorites. You never know when you'll find yourself in a situation that demands the sad trombone.

Can you double time that order of lemur pelts? We have a bit of snow up here and I forgot that I don't have any insulated codpieces anymore.

d_prow, let's play!

somedude20, The fish sandwich inside the double cheese burger made me laugh out loud. And then I read it was a chicken sandwich inside, which I didn't find funny at all. I had to stop, the chicken fried bacon with gravy manged to make my tummy interested. :)

How about an OTS asking what place has the most livable/likable climate?

I'm tired of shivering while wondering if the CA seller will bother to install the CA unit this year..in time.

Oh, I'm also quite a fan of quakes.usgs.gov/recenteqs/latest.htm

Continuous updates on earthquakes. I'm obsessed with tracking them because somehow it eases my unnatural fear of them.

Last night I checked out the website for the restaurant my kid bartended at. They have a calendar, and you can view photos taken on that day. (not every day). Fun to look at. Enlightening. Good to see she's usually too drunk to drive home after work, but does anyway Yes, quite a nice profession she has.

(Can we pass a law for retroactive abortions?)

It is kind of foolish to put yourself out there on facebook or myspace. The implications of doing something like that are deep and wide.

My favorite site: http://www.doodie.com LOL, not really. But I am not going to tell my favorite site. Oh yes I am: http://www.eurekalert.org/pubnews.php This is kind of a kissmyarsemediaoutlets_Iamgoingtofindmyownnews_insteadoflettingyoucherrypickwhaticanandcannotknow kind of thing.

I recall Christian Okoye being fast on Super Tecmo Bowl, but nowhere near as fast as Lawrence Taylor, who was faster than all the running backs.

Tom,

Go west young man. Are you projecting yourself as far from hollywierd as you can, only to end up closer to Washington?

I'm on burrillstrong.com ALL THE TIME. It's AMAZING.

Seriously? The site I visit most often is MGoBlog, a blog about University of Michigan sports. It has limited appeal on this site, but it's what I visit the most.

Facebook and xkcd are other regular destinations of mine.

"xbusguy (Anonymous) says…”Of the four shown above, three of the four live outside of Lawrence.”"

When they interview you they ask for your hometown. I think most people consider this to mean where you were born, not where you live now. Or at least I did and other people I know that have been interviewed did based on their answers.

BorderRat, You be sure and hang onto that copy. Keep it safe. In 100 yrs, there will be only..saaaay....75,000 of them tucked away in attics and basements. It might be worth something. Like Beanie Babies.

;)

Can you imagine how the worries spiked the sales of liquor, antacids and xanex around that area? A good time to own the bar next door to the offices..that is until, tomorrow.

Of facebook and mySpace, I prefer mySpace. Why??? because of the blogs. I just joined facebook and have yet to find a place to post blogs. Some of my "friends" on mySpace have some very interesting blogs. One friend writes very nice poetry that I find a joy to read. facebook just seems to be a page for idle chit chat. Plus funny pictures. If you want to see some pix of my crazy cat, check out Lee Waluk. Check the comments that go with the pix. Of course, to see the pix, you have to join facebook. Unless you already have a wall. One thing about facebook that is good is the chat box.

Andini,

My nephew was talking about how much he hated playing high school football the other day. I started to laugh.

A classic never to be forgotten.

Facebook is cool. I like being able to keep in toch with folks from college and it allows you a way to find them and chat. But eventually the phone is a better way. I also like espn and moveon.org

Rocky Mountain News. (Seriously, I read them nearly everyday) http://www.rockymountainnews.com/

I know, I'm screwed.

:-(

BTW, When they shut down..all those internet pages that they post, and then people repost and forward...that's a lot of cyber-stuff.

Does this make the internet like..Swiss Cheese? Will there now be tiny holes, throughout the web, that will now unsettle the mass? Will it cause a internet sinkholes? I've posted links on LJW from there..can the LJW server handle this Rocky Mountain Whey?

Get used to it. Lawrence is a tourist town. Lawrence has long lived off of the sales tax collections, rent-payments, and tuition of outsiders.

All the property-taxes-are-too-high crowd have had it a lot better than they know.
