    Dandelion & burdock. Yum. Almost as nice as Vimto and Goose.

    :lol: ...the fist part king of explains why so much black clothing has crept into my closet over the years!

    It depends on which part of his personality is presenting itself at the time:

    One-Eyed Jack
    Black Jack
    Happy Jack
    Captain Jack Sparrow
    Jumpin' Jack Flash
    Jack in the box

    When he is misbehaving he tends to be CaptainBlackHappyOneEyedJumpin'JackFlashintheBox

    Short answer...Jack!

    ^ Is "Just Jack!" a part of his personality? :D (Obscure "Will & Grace" reference.)

    ^ actually yes! As is "Jack 2000!". But that was really turning into a mouth full when he was being bad. He would totally lose interest in the scolding before I finished telling him off!

    I'm glad you mentioned it!

    Ahem, I don't have fond memories of Vimto... Especially considering its anagram.

    A bit belated as I've been busy the past few days, but congratulations to you and your family, Tom Hendricks, on the birth of your beautiful little girl. :)

    Kirsten, what a lovely kitty! Where did you adopt your kitty from? Mine where from Cats Protection.

    I love black cats :) just don't tell Rosie!

    Thanks :) she's so friendly. Someone rehomed her and then took her back because they said they didn't think it was fair that she was left at home while they went out to work. Why did they bother in the first place? Idiots.

    ^ And I love tabbies...please don't tell Jack!

    Yes, you really have to wonder about some people's motivation. You always knew you were going to be at work all day...how is this different after you have adopted a cat? Clearly they didn't understand that a cat is a commitment...

    I made this cake for my sister's birthday:

    [​IMG]

    It's topped with "cake balls"- cake and icing smashed together to make into any shape, then dipped in candy coating. They're very tasty...

    Nice looking cake by the way.

    I volunteer to keep your pup while you're on your honeymoon. MAYBE you'll get her back afterwards (she's so damn cute)! ;)

    I destroyed this car. On purpose.

    [​IMG]

    It's for a movie my friend John is making (the guy on the upper-left.) This was taken after it fell five stories. Originally, we were going to push it off the top of the parking structure of the Packard Automotive Plant. When the car arrived we found out that it still worked, which we weren't expecting. So, I set it up to drive off rather than it being pushed.

    It had to be done in one take, obviously. The director got the shot he wanted, and I only missed the spot he marked on the ground by a foot. Which, I didn't know I could do physics in my head, so that's good to know.

    Edit: Here I am showing my dominance over the car:

    [​IMG]

    Before someone points out that I'm standing in a puddle of gasoline with a cigarette in my mouth and how stupid that is, 1: the cigarette wasn't lit at the time, 2: a burning cigarette isn't hot enough to ignite gasoline under most circumstances, and 3: driving a car off of a fucking building is at least a thousand times more dangerous.

    Also, I confirmed what MythBusters found. Crashing a car like this will not make it explode.
