1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    Larry, glad you had a great trip. It's always incongruous to make a huge change in geography, isn't it?

    I don't know what going to Florida has to do with triangles, but whatever.

    I was able to score some foie gras even though I'm out of town until tomorrow. Not only was it fucking awesome but I introduced two new people to the mana that is foie gras.

    ^ My local shop sells something called Faux Gras, for those who want the taste of froie gras without the liver-explodery component. While about 80% of the way there, it simply doesn't match up to the real stuff.

    I just discovered that I have a very distant relative who was born in 1835 and who was named Theodore Freiheit. If that were an English name rather than a German one, he'd be Theo Freedom. Theo Freedom is the name that Ray Smuckles (the cat) adopted when he went into rehab for his alcoholism. (He signed the Cognitive Intuity Register as Theo Freedom.)

    That is some pretty cool stuff.

    Possibly, it may be "clever" [used in the loosest possible sense] marketing, or they may have made an attempt at making it taste genuine, in the sense of adding ingredients to mimic the uber-smooth texture and melt in the mouth.

    I can't say it holds much interest to me personally; if my food isn't hurting someone then it simply isn't be made right. I like to go to McDonalds simply to imagine the cows crying.

    A) I got a full nights sleep and woke up feeling like about a million bucks.

    B) I managed to get a few transactions handled at the bank so I have more money than I did.

    C) I'm dressed like an idiot today, like three hipsters and someone's grandma got caught in the blender ugly, but damn if I'm not warm and comfy on a cold ass miserable winter's day.

    That would be a nice birthday present, especially if you get someone to buy them for you. Happy Birthday.

    Happy birthday Stephen.

    ...

    Sunday, we replaced the toddler bed with a twin-size bed, and our girl was very happy with it. I have a few misgivings, but she got to sleep a bit early and slept well. The mattress dwarfs her, though. She could sleep sideways and have room to stretch. Afterwards, we ran around a bit and then hung out in the living room together, where I watched her put her dolls to bed, play-cook, and then - bizarre - she grabbed a book off the stack, sat on the couch, and thumbed through it. Later on she helped me with the laundry, putting sheets from the washer into the dryer, and then started putting the towels that had just come out of the dryer back into the washer. I kinda didn't want to stop her.

    I slept on an extra long twin for years and was totally fine with it. Getting a queen was the worst mistake I have ever made. It caused the girlfriend to move in... :plain:

    jeeze i know 27 might feel old, but you are very very very young.

    there's that thing where all rock stars artists die at 28, and othes claim that its the hardest year to live in a young life, and I didn't believe it, but when I hit 28 (i'm turning 34 in march) I had a hellacious year (36hour medical duties, being married and away from the wife the whole time, wanting to give up on life).

    happy birthday man, enjoy it and brace yourself for that upcoming 28.
