About a month ago, I had lunch with 2 friends, and got this bill. I should have made it into a rite then, but you know how it is.

Note the 5th line item.

I'm not going to say who exactly had that item, but the person who did reports it was delicious and refreshing!

"The probable answer lies in one of Google's underground parking garages in Mountain View. There, in a secret area off-limits even to regular GoogleFolk, is a shipping container. But it isn't just any shipping container."

Reefers and roach clips and papers and rollers

Reefers and roach clips and papers and rollers
Cocaine and procaine for twenty year molars
Reds and peyote to work out your bugs
These are a few of my favorite drugs.

Uppers and downers and methedrine freakout
Take some amphetamines, watch your brains leak out
Acid and mescaline pull out your plugs
These are a few of my favorite drugs.

Backs that are perfect for carrying monkeys
Users of heroin, often called junkies
Methadone helps then to stop being thugs
Takes them off one of my favorite drugs.

On a bad trip
When the cops come
When I lose my head
I simply take more of my favorite drugs
And then I'm not sad -- I'm dead!

-- "My Favorite Drugs," to the tune of "My Favorite Things"

BEEP. You may now commence bonking...

A friend of mine is trying to begin a 9 month journey of baby making. Well, 5 minutes or so of baby making, and 9 months of baby growing.

She's just told me that she uses an online service that very conveniently notifies her on her PDA when it's time to, uh, maximise her conception chances. (As you can see, those 5 minutes have to be extremely well-timed.) Her RO has started to love the sound of the beep.

I'm wondering if she's going to call the kid Blackberry.

In the company (or not) of hotties

You'd think that in a large company, such as the one in which I work, there would be a decent number of hot men at which you could look. You would think this, given statistical likelihood.

You would be wrong.

I can count on one hand (haha) the number of men rated as above a 6, that I've seen. And they're all 7s. There seems to be a complete dearth of 8s or above.

Present company excluded, of course.
