    Getting drunk at a friend's wedding did that for me.

    I haven't watched that for a while. I'll have to dig mine out to see if they are still ok.

    ^ I hope they're ok. I noticed on some of the reviews of Alias season 2 on Amazon several people had the same problem.

    Mine came from having two alcoholics in my family-- my father and my oldest sister. My other sister and I are resolutely non-drinkers.

    If they replaced Fenway Park they’d name it after some stupid corporation. Let it stay the one freaking sports arena in the country named after a place in the city and not its corporate sponsor!

    Also wouldn’t want to lose our home field advantage by making our baseball field a normal shape.

    Now that I think about it, Fenway would make a great home for the Baseball Hall of Fame...

    I got a packet of mixed nuts that turned out to have only one single macadamia, and I accidentally dropped that one on the ground. :scream:

    Why couldn't it have been a peanut?

    That's somewhat disturbing.

    In my family's case, I was the alcoholic
    14 years dry now so at least the pneumonia was good for something

    ^ 14 years already? That's pretty cool! Congratulations!
    are they completely beyond rescue? Sometimes it helps to thoroughly clean both them and the DVD player's lense.
    That sucks :( On the other hand, there's propably a very happy mouse now :)

    Packages so tightly wrapped that you can't open them without spilling their contents all over the place!!!

    ^they have a partnership contract with the pocket knife and scissors industy. And those have one with the band-aid/adhesive plaster industry. Against the frustration of having cut yourself and needing a band-aid, you need a cookie which comes in a wrapping you can't open without a sharp instrument or a nuclear warhead.

    What's so special about macadamia nuts? I don't think I ever tasted one. I've tasted a lot of different nuts though. My favorites so far are cashew nuts but I don't eat much of them. Only on occasions. I am sure I would appreciate them less if I had them more often.

    Bread seems to be getting tighter packed with every advancing year, resulting in having to tear the paper to open it.
    I'm looking at you Warburton's :shifty:

    I cleaned them and tried playing them on 2 Blu Ray players, 1 DVD player and 2 computers.

    It must be experienced to be understood.

    Well, it's just a nut. how good can it be? I've had caviar, different sorts, it's not all it's cracked up to be. When it comes to fine food/drink I much prefer a vintage wine to anything else. That's something! Foie gras is nice but only on big occasions. If you have it three days in a row, as happened to me once when I was going from banquet to banquet, it feels like pate.
