Here I thought you were witty enough to come up with Katie Kaboomslap! Then I came to my senses. Bowtie, witty? Naaaahhhhh...

What a coincidence, there is a slight chance I will be in Denver the week prior to Vegas...

OK, thanks. We have missed quite a lot of episodes for whatever reason so this was a new one for us.

Late to the party, I know, but I am in awe of Jim Parson as Sheldon. He reminds me a lot of Bubba Bo Bob Brain Van Dyke with the use of his body to be Sheldon.

I really didn't like the show the first few times I watched it, then all of a sudden I was hooked. We have a mess of episodes on the DVR now for when I am up when I shouldn't be.

Little Vineyards Trio began the slow start to the slippery slope. it was alllllllllll downhill from there!

I haven't gone home for Mother's Day since moving out here. I send Mom flowers though. Besides, I'm sure I can talk HAK into popping down there for a visit when I'm out for the NYC tasting the weekend of April 21.

I started watching them out of order based on whatever TBS decided to show. Took me about 3 episodes to get hooked on watching it. Then I saw the Christmas episode with Penny giving Sheldon the napkin, and that's when I decided I had to own the series.

Why, oh why, did WD have to break out the Wellington. And it's syrah to boot. I had to break out the car's account...

we'd totally organize a tasting for Octocat! Just confirm the dates... you could even invite your boss, though he doesn't drink.

I would buy that just for the bottle (well, OK, some good juice inside it would be nice too!). Bringing out a bottle of Katie Kaboomslap at a party would be the best.

So I'm taking my mother for a long overdue dose of aloha in May. Any Big Island recommendations? I've got Oahu covered (been there a few times), but I need big island recommendations for hotel and if I should fly into Hilo or Kona (from Hono).

Been way too long since I've been on the big island.

But I seem to remember the different "sand" beaches on the Kona side (Green, Black, etc.). I don't remember much on the Hilo side that we did.


Edit: I guess the black sand beaches were more south of Hilo & Kona than I remember.

Also, you get more rain on the Hilo side than the Kona side.

I have one - it's the cheapest model. I assume the higher end models are nicer, but I really like mine. You can do lots of different exercises, including compound exercises and you can incorporate stretching. It uses your body weight, so it's not fantastic for legs imo, but great for upper body. Disclaimer: if you're very strong or you're into bodybuilding, your own body weight might not be enough to get you a good workout...but most of us ladies don't have that problem. I also like it because it's smooth, no jerky wrenching movements.

Thanks... I get bored easily with exercising... so I tend to jump from thing to thing... that way I always have something I can do... right now my weighted hula hoop is my favorite... 20 min of hooping and I don't feel like a bum for not exercising...

Oh yeah, so it's official. I'm moving to LA at the end of March. Probably in the Culver City area, but if anybody has particular insight into better places to live close to National/Jefferson or National/Washington please let me know.

At least I'll still be in San Francisco every 4th week

My face is numb from all the beer we drank tonight for hurling practice*. I also opened up an Italian IGT for the pizza we had. Pretty good, but it needs more time in the bottle...wont' keep notes on this one. The Duchesse sour beer is excellent, btw. Damn, does it go down well...




*hurling practice=book club for guys...book club just isn't manly enough for a guys' book club. And, we read "Better" by Atul Gawande. Great book that's provided me inspiration to do more with my career.
