    And this is why I do my own... My wife refuses to put effort into separating colors (except for white shirts - most of the time) and so all the white socks come out looking grungy... Now that the kids are old enough to help with laundry, they are following her lead... Drives me nuts...

    Played tennis at lunch.. Now my ankles hurt...

    I was looking forward to getting a Jimmy John's sandwich the last time I went to IL. They do a turkey with sprouts sandwich that I love. But when I went back, they had stopped doing sprouts and were putting cucumbers in the sandwiches instead. Your "NOT THE SAME AT ALL!" quote is exactly how I felt. :lol:

    I brought a new lap top at the tail end of last year and after owning it for less than six months, I've had to send it off to Samsung to get repaired as it's had 1. numerous blue screens of death, 2. most recently it's stopped registering the the DVD drive.

    So I've finally sent it off to Samsung to be repaired/replaced and I have a loan lap top from PC World for how ever the former lasts, and it's a pile of shite, the battery has no charge, so if I disconnect the power cable it dies, and if it does, it reverts back to factory settings meaning I have to keep it either on my desk, or near my bed because if I swap, it dies, reverts to factory settings and I need to input the bloody network key and all my passwords and the like. I miss my Lap Top!

    On a plus side, my new subscribers issue of SFX just dropped through the letter box.

    Just a warning from someone who indirectly deals with Samsung aftersales service at work: Samsung aftersales sucks big time. I hope everything goes smoothly for you, but I did want to warn you that our tech support team hates Samsung more than any other brand.

    I'm not sure "person" is the right word for someone who would eat such a thing :barf:

    But, yeah :p

    My old dog did that when I stayed with some friends for a weekend. Puked it right back up. Smelled wonderful - warm shit + stomach acid.

    I don't like sprouts, but I am familiar with the sandwich of which Kestra speaks. It's actually pretty decent.

    It's surprisingly good. I don't like just any sandwich with sprouts. They have all sorts of hippie nonsense like that here in California. There's actually a grocery store called "Sprouts" down the street from me. But that sandwich was delicious, really! You'll have to trust me on this.
