    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    there's something weirdly endearing about those old steakhouses. "You want a side of spinach? No problem, eleven dollas." No new restaurant could get away with that.

    No, new restaurants would sous vide it, shape it like a spinach leaf, nitrogen blast it, serve it on a himalayan salt block and charge you $32. And it would taste worse than the steakhouse spinach.

    Yep! Those sides are $$$.

    The mutton was fantastic, no diarrhea reported from anyone and I sure didn't get it. The T-Bone was really tasty as well.

    Not yet.

    Although one of them (5.5 years old) mentioned last week that some kid at camp said "the F word". Wife and I looked at each other... "oh? and... what is that?...". "I can't tell you, we can't say the F word - or the B word!".

    Needless to say the whole exchange left us a bit puzzled

    My son's classmate told her mother (admiringly) that he really knows how to employ a "well placed 'motherfucker'." And he does, because he knows when to use the big guns and when doing so would get him in trouble.

    My parents never withheld any sort of language from me. They took me to see rated R movies and such. Now look at me, I'm the most well-fucking-adjusted 29 year old in America.

    Maybe it had some sort of reversed effect and why you project this almost Puritan, sober image, with the uniform wardrobe and wearing suits on weekends and whatnot

    Habitual behavior leaves my mind to think about more important things.

    must have been hard. especially if you were travelling to start the week, then moved your 5th floor walkup to Brooklyn with 2 friends, and then started a new job.


    oh, right, that was me.
