I insulted Miracle Whip too ya know! Just sayin.

Wiki

Some seem to disagree. He seems to have trademarked another's saying as his own.


Before we get too far off-topic, I remember attending a Neil Simon play on Broadway once, and the Playbill biography had the chutzpah to say 'the only serious rival to Neil Simon as a playwright is William Shakespeare.' Hoo, boy.

seems kobe seller-like, doesn't he?

I heard a radio ad touting Dunkin Donut's new "artisian bagels" - wouldn't Dunkin Donut bagels, almost tautologically, be not artisan? But unlike Kobe, there isn't an area in Japan called "artisan" that also makes bagels that are very good but who's name is constantly devlaued by others.

I didn't know anything about Kobe before this thread...but my takeaway, unfortunately, includes a little less trust of the high-end restaraunt business. At a minimum, I know to avoid places hawking Kobe beef.

Level one, easy, level two, tougher, level three - *very* difficult. It helps to have your sound on as a warning mechanism.

Well, I think I'll make sure Matt is studying for his math final, take out my contacts, get ready for bed, open a beer, and begin replying to the 46 unread PMs in my inbox. :(

Not sure where to put this, so here it is. I am much less inclined to participate knowing that even innocuous posts will be edited by a moderator (Don?) with no warning or notice. I do not like having my words and possibly my intent changed by someone behind the scenes. If asked, I will make necessary changes for clarity or explain my intentions. But just deleting things, well...it makes me wonder how many of my other posts have been edited and I just didn't go back to them to notice. Signing off now.

 
The only post of yours that has been edited, deleted, or changed in any way is this one that I'm quoting - because as always, you come back for a few weeks, then the one-line posts start to turn "tough," then when nobody responds to them you get snide, and then when nobody pays attention to that you become downright toxic because you don't get 100% of the attention here. I can't count the number of times you have tried to damage this community with your self-centered attempts at drama and immersing yourself in this perverse fantasy of being The Victim, and I'm not going to let it happen again. I have *NO* idea what you're talking about, and at this point I couldn't care less.

Alrighty, I know this is last minute and somewhat lame, but I am tired of not having tech support at work and I miss my husband and I am sick of scarfing leftover (crummy) pizza alone in my apartment.  If anyone is up for a whim anytime soon, I am game - I am definitely starting to feel the pangs of loneliness, and some nice social interaction with fabulous DR folks would help, I'm sure.  :D  In Rosslyn, but will travel...

I think I'm going to take my son to try Panda Gourmet on New York Ave today for lunch, around 11:30/11:45 or so. Anyone want to join us?

Oh.

 

You're working?

 

Hmm.

 

Well ... thank God.
