I've yet to hear anyone make a plausible excuse for him.

Perhaps the fact that Cindy is stark raving looney?[/ot]

I gotta admit, I thought that was the best line of the week myself.

DariaG wrote:Assaroma on The Apprentice proved to me the full capacity of a reality show villain. Mirna is nothing alongside Assy. And it sounds like you guys missed that charmer. Lucky you.


I saw the show, and agree that she was bad. IMHO she wasn't anywhere near as evil as Mirna, though. Assy (love the nick, BTW) was just a habitual shirker and liar. She didn't have a lot good to say about the rest of the cast, but she didn't have the vileness in her comments about everyone else that Mirna does.

DariaG wrote:TAR4's Russhole is still my least favorite racer ever. He had no good moments, and I've yet to hear anyone make a plausible excuse for him. But Mirna's running neck and neck with my 2nd least favorite racer, Wil.


For some reason, I actually liked Russell/hole. When I talked to him he was nowhere near as bad as he was with Cindy. I really wonder why/how those two ended up running the race together, as they certainly didn't ever appear to be a couple - both before and after the race.

That has no bearing on anything, but you can always do like we did and use this little mnemonic aid to help you remember that “N” goes up: “Down? No, up!” There are two Ns in that phrase. Two, as we all know, is an even number, but since there is another N in “even” we now have three Ns, which is odd. An odd number leaves a remainder when divided by 2. The number 2 is expressed as “II” in Roman numerals. If you erase the middle of the letter “N” (this part ‘\’), you are left with “II”. Thus, 2 = N - \, which if you turn your head and squint your eyes kind of looks like an arrow pointing up, “N” goes up. Pretty clever, huh?


All I can say is: What have you guys been smoking to come up with that? Good grief, it almost even makes sense....in an alternate universe!

And the neoprene you wore is so slimming, perfect for a night on the town at the foam bars.


Snerk!

Good pain meds are a thing of beauty, aren't they, Steve? :-)

Speaking of which, are you all recuperated from your surgery, I hope?

You know, it's really easier than you might think. Of course, those 'placebos' really helped.

How nice of you to ask MamaTiger. Things are going along swimmingly. I start physical therapy soon where I have to spend at least 3 hours a day at the gambling boats followed by a large pepperoni pizza. Grueling.

Sounds gruesome. But I'm sure you're up to the task!

Those physical terrorists really know how to work you hard, don't they?

Just don't give the house too much of your money!

I just wanted to say how much I enjoy your guys' writing. I'm usually to late to post on the specifics, but I enjoy all of it.

I deeply resent the implication in the latest column that I have ever seen a movie starring Adam Sandler. Hmph!
